Excerpts pulled from latest "The Solari Report" headed by Catherine Austin Fitts (look her up on Wiki) Re The US Presidential Election: The Productivity Backlash

**(I apologize for my inability to pull in the graphs that accompanied these paragraphs so article is shortened size-wise account that.)**

All comments below, unless stated otherwise, are hers:


THE SHIFT TO THE MULTIPOLAR WORLD

There are serious problems with leaving the current crew of richly subsidized in control. Their attempts to cover their overhead and engorge their coffers by extending centralization globally for a few more years are putting the entire world at risk. We have discussed this on the Solari Report this year in our series with the Saker, “The Emerging Mulitpolar World”: February, April, June, September.

The Clinton’s strength was on the financial side of the “central banking warfare model.” This strength included the Neocons who promote a vision that the United States must maintain a global empire – the unipolar vision. The result has been exploding expenses for foreign wars, a military stretched globally, an explosion of dead and wounded and a European continent now being overrun by refugees from an imploding Middle East, as one civil infrastructure after another is destroyed. With this crime, we have fed the military industrial complex, a global arms industry and a mercenary capacity that has created an ever more powerful constituency for war.

This war-making edifice is expensive. It needs rich subsidy to keep it funded. Wars are funded with pubic dollars generating private profit. The public cost for each dollar of profit keeps rising. And it does not leave the US military in good shape.

One of the signature military affairs promoted by Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State was the invasion and destruction of Libya. Libya went from being the richest country in Africa to a country where one out of three people now live in poverty. We are all still trying to figure out where Libya’s 143 tons of gold went, let alone how much is related to contributions to the Clinton Foundation and campaign.

libyabeforeandafter

In the NY Times, Tom Friedman wrote of the refugees pouring into Europe, “The lucky few find ways to get smuggled into Spain or Germany, via Libya. Libya was like a cork on Africa, and when the U.S. and NATO toppled the Libyan dictator — but did not put troops on the ground to help secure a new order — they essentially uncorked Africa, creating a massive funnel through chaotic Libya to the Mediterranean coast.”

So we have trillions of dollars lost or missing in Mideast wars that explode American government debt, destroy numerous countries and overrun Europe with refugees. Yet, it was expected that Clinton would give us more of the same, including war with Russia.

The Trump campaign represented many on the side of the house that must implement and fight wars both foreign and domestic – the generals, the intelligence agencies and the enforcement arm. It also included the states that send the most young people into the military and receive back the most caskets and wounded warriors.

A growing number of these professionals understand that the unipolar vision has reached its limits and that the United States must draw back behind the Atlantic and Pacific oceans and become more economically self sufficient. This pullback is part of the rebalancing of our economic relationship with China at the center of the shift to the multipolar world. This is part of the effort to create a new grand strategy.

Call it “Fortress America” if you like. The move to repatriate corporate cash and offshore funds into North America, to continue to develop energy independence and to rebuild our infrastructure and core military capability represents such an adjustment.

The military-intelligence side of the central banking warfare model wants to regather its energy. It does not want to engage in wars it might not win. Not to mention that, with lead responsibilities to maintain the US dollar as reserve currency and events in the South China Sea, the US Navy has better things to do in a dangerous world than transgender training.

THE END OF THE DEBT FINANCED GROWTH MODEL

For decades, we have financed global growth with exploding levels of public and private debt. We covered this trend in our 1st Quarter 2015 Wrap Up Planet Debt.

The Clintons rose to personal wealth and power swimming upon a sea of expanding debt that was funding the centralization of ownership and control, including the Neoliberal vision of maintaining and extending a unipolar world. When the Bill and Hillary came to Washington our official national debt stood at $4 trillion. After the financial coup d’etat of trillions of dollars in bailouts and missing money, the official national debt now approaches $20 trillion. Underfunded retirement obligations and contingent liabilities will take it much higher.
The debt grew with globalization, which meant that the American middle class lost jobs and income. That did not have to happen. There were ways of addressing the needs of the middle class that could have resulted in a very different outcome. (See my online book Dillon Read & Co. Inc and the Aristocracy of Stock Profits and Sir James Goldsmith’s Globalization Warning) That middle class loss of status and economic strength is clearly seen in the debt that American children incur to finance a college education.

Exploding levels of student debt have also correlated with a more expensive academic infrastructure which has been used to support and justify the Neoliberal vision.

Many of the adjustments to lending laws and student loan laws which allow predatory practices were made during the Clinton administration. See my piece on the Financial Hit Man of Student Loans.

This high level student debt appears to be one of the reasons why the next generation of Americans is delaying homeownership. It is one of the reasons that the US homeownership rate has fallen to its lowest levels since 1965.

Another factor in the fall in homeownership rates is the devastation caused by the housing bubble first engineered by the Clinton Administration. This bubble resulted in massive foreclosures, resulting from unaffordable levels of mortgage debt, and a cost of trillions of dollars in taxpayer funded bailouts.

One of the ways in which sovereign governments have serviced increasing debt loads has been by engineering interest rates to record lows, particularly with the use of derivatives and significant central banking intervention. This drop in interest rates represents a significant transfer of wealth from savers and retirement accounts to governments and large borrowers – one of the reasons why pension fund and retirement underfunding will become one of the most pressing issues in both North America and Europe.

I have written a great deal about where this historical gush of government credit and spending: See my articles: Financial Coup D’Etat, The Myth of the Rule of Law, Coming Clean Beyond the Fiscal Cliff.

I have also documented what is now over $50 trillion missing from the US government in bailouts and “undocumentable adjustments.” The US Department of Defense reported $9.3 trillion in undocumentable adjustments in fiscal 2015 alone – approximately $30,000 for every person in America . See my commentary: “Criminal vs. Crazy Man: Cut and Run, Monica Lewinsky II and Real Trouble Ahead”

This extraordinary commitment of resources has funded extraordinary and uneconomic centralization in a manner which has harmed the general economy, the environment and productivity – a significant expenditure of government money has had a “negative return on investment.” This is why I believe that the #1 fiscal priority of every American should be to bring transparency to the federal budget, including where the missing money has gone and how we can get it or the related assets back.

Such a discovery must start with transparency for the federal budget and financial statements for our individual Congressional District.

Our ability to finance with debt has depended on the willingness of the world to hold US dollars and US treasury securities and corporate debt. In part, the push to extend the unipolar vision is a push to ensure that governments around the world continue to do so. The shift to a multipolar vision means that our capacity to print infinite amounts of paper in exchange for valuable natural resources has reached its limits.

This is why all year I continue to quote the German finance minister Wolfgang Schäuble who stated at the G20 meeting in Shanghai, “The debt-financed growth model has reached its limits… There are no shortcuts that aren’t reforms.

The debt party is over. If anything the Trump victory represented the people in the military and intelligence community who know better than to try to extend it with more war. The shift to the multipolar world is upon us. A growing number of people responsible for managing the central banking-warfare model want to draw resources back to North America and rebuild the center.

This means that the negotiations over the US federal budget are going to be significant in the first year of a new administration. The budget is where most of the real policy changes will play out.

A FEW MORE CRITICAL STATISTICS: PRIVATE PRISONS AND LIFE EXPECTANCY

As described above, a Deputy Assistant Secretary of HUD in the Clinton Administration told me in 1994, “Black people are hopeless. We are moving them out and moving Hispanics in.”

Black people were indeed “moved out” with predatory lending – they lost their homes – and with incarceration as the Clinton administration support for the war on drugs, expanded prison sentences and contracts to private prisons exploded. I have described the growth of the private prison complex during the Clinton administration in my online book Dillon Read & Co Inc and the Aristocracy of Stock Profits.

The result was the growth of a significant prison industrial complex in the United States. The US now boasts the highest incarceration rate in the world.

One of the reasons why the Clintons were successful building this machinery is due to the largesse they showered on minority elites to help them accomplish it. Which is one of the reasons we are hearing screams about “whitelash.” The last thing that folks who helped round up and gentrify their poorer brethren for a profit want is to do is look in the mirror. See my commentary, “Trump & the African-American Elite Gravy Train: The Party’s Over”

While poor minorities were rounded up into prisons, poor Caucasians weren’t faring well either. They were also losing their homes in record numbers as predatory loans and foreclosures swept through their communities, businesses and farms. In fact, the life expectancy of white women without a high school diploma, dropped by 5 years between 1990 and 2008. By 2008, life expectancy for black women without a high school diploma had surpassed that of white women of the same education level. The same study showed that life expectancy of white men without a high school diploma dropped by three years.

Take a look at a review of life expectancy in the United States. Hillary Clinton tended to carry the areas with the higher life expectancy, whereas Donald Trump carried the areas with lower life expectancy. Another way to say this is that the people whose life force was being drained while government was engineering rich subsidy to Wall Street, Washington, Hollywood and Silicon Valley were looking for a way to stop that drain. They were, in fact, trying to stay alive.

Yeah. This is true, but in the case of the magazines, Newsweek ONLY printed and distributed the Madam President issue. The President Trump issue was not printed, nor distributed.

So, that left Newsweek without a magazine to sell on election day, or whenever the magazine was due out.

So, here's why Newsweek didn't have a President Trump issue to distribute and sell -

THEY DIDN'T PRINT IT.

In fact, they didn't even have one made. Only THE COVER was designed. Newsweek has to actually write articles about Trump's victory, before they can print them out. So, it won't be until Next week's issue, that a Newsweek magazine with Trump's victory being reported will be ready to print, distribute, and sell.

If any of you have the Newsweek Madam President issue, it's worth a LOT of money, now. It'll probably be worth a shit-ton more in a few years.

Reminds me of the infamous Dewy Defeats Truman Tribune paper in 1948. Cause certain events had the Tribune go to print hours earlier than usual and at the time polls were Dewy and the Republicans headed towards control of the White House and Congress, so the Tribune went with that story.

Then history happened and Truman and the Democrats gained full control instead and Truman found a copy of the original headline (Tribune had printed a bunch of Dewy Defeats Truman papers before reprinting late at night with a new headline) and posed with it.

It was VERY telling that their *first* action in Libya after the overthrow of khadafi was to set up a central bank

since anyone that pays attention knows damn well that most of what gets traded on the crimex I mean Comex is valueless paper...



Same as after the coup of Ukraine, they "divest" of 20 tons of gold and "diversify" it into......get this....DOLLARS....LMAO....

nah nothin fishy there, its not like the Netherlands was demanding some repatriated gold...


our currency sure as hell doesnt have this on it any longer



^^^THIS verbiage on the bottom was the ONLY thing that gave americans confidence in this paper to begin with



but that was before the bait and switch of the Federal Reserve. (truly an unconstitutional illegal entity that should be immediately terminated)

^ Ah, you understand what the Federal Reserve actually does. Ellen Hodgson Brown, J.D. tome The Web of Debt, 5th Edition does a credible job de-mystifying the mystery of the Fed and how certain populations are unknowingly being fleeced.

Thanks, RaisedInaCult, I've often wondered if anyone read some of these posted excerpts.

Thanks, and yes...I understand what the federal reserve is. The Creature from Jeckyll Island. Good book, it should be required reading for the youth of today. It is nothing but a massive trojan horse designed to steal wealth from the nation. It is completely unconstitutional, Congress was never given the power to delegate away what they gave - not to mention the fact that it was not passed in a constitutional manner.

And folks dont understand that the federal bankruptcy of the 1930s and the introduction of Federal Witholding "tax" was also a similar inversion of the original law...which was of dubious nature to begin with. Wages were never meant to be taxed, but the banks demanded it when the fedgov went bankrupt and FDR signed away the farm with the emergency banking act.


These days people just go along like its a given and tell people like me I'm crazy for having gone and found the information I have about these things...and they say history rewrites dont happen, lol...

The owners of the central banks - I'm talking the clans that own the BIS, IMF - "the central banker's central banker" - those people are willing to push any length of malfeasance in order to keep their license to legally counterfeit money in almost every nation on the planet.

Russia, Iran....are against these freaks that are way too close to putting a lock on their debt enslavement scheme on the world, and that's why the commoners are taught to hate them.

There was a thread about this a few days before the election. Everyone was accusing Newsweek of calling the election for Hillary ahead of the election. They printed and distributed Madam President, ahead of time, but did not print and distribute any President Trump, because they "knew he would lose."

I laughed at Newsweek when Trump won. I figured they'd have to go through a mad dash of collecting all of the Madam President issues, while hurriedly printing and distributing the President Trump issue.

Did you not see any Newsweek President Trump issues, only Madam President issues?

Snopes making themselves look bought off and retarded yet again. Newsweek did NOT make a trump one ahead of time, and the CEO of Newsweek even called it a "business decision" to go with the hillary one and not preprint a DT one.

I mean, its not like all of the major media is owned by the same group of degenerates that own the DNC, pays off congress, owns central banks.


I love how Snopes proves itself to be fully compliant liars when needed, just like with 911.


No, I actually didn't see any Trump editions. Anyway, I reread the Snopes article, and, like you guys said, only Clinton editions were printed ahead of time, although they had stories written up about both candidates. I can't seem to find anything stating whether or not they will be printing and distributing the Trump edition in the upcoming weeks, besides one blog post from last week saying it would come out this week. After checking newsweek's website, the current issue does feature Trump, but it is not the special edition they had written. I can only assume that it either won't be published, or as a special edition, their weekly publication list did not have it. If someone happens to see it in a store, let me know. But I'm not holding my breath.
