Lawless Leaders Changing the World-Catherine Austin Fitts

7By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (Early Sunday Release)

Financial expert Catherine Austin Fitts says the world is changing through crime by our leaders.  Fitts contends, “We are dealing with a lawlessness that is happening with the build out of the global systems, which is very ugly.  If you look at what has happened to the Ukraine, so far, over a million people have lost their homes.  That’s pretty lawless. The fighting is getting very, very painful.  The other thing you have is as people see a power vacuum and the lawlessness of the leaders, they say hey let’s be lawless too.  It translates all the way down into our communities.  The lawlessness of drug dealing and organized crime is enormous, and it’s happening globally. . . . For markets to function, they require trust in the rule of law.  We’ve seen the breakdown in the rule of law.”

Fitts predicts that 2015 is going to be “volatile and violent.”  Fitts says, “I think 2015 is going to be a very rough year.  I think you have to be prepared for wild swings.  We’ve seen oil come down 50%.”   Fitts also points out, “The creative destructive aspects are pretty scary.  The thing that your listeners are struggling with is we’ve been through a lot of change.  The change has been painful because the American leadership encouraged the taxpayer to misbehave. . . . I think a lot of people feel they have been left high and dry; and in fact, they have.  The reality is if you look at the change we’ve experienced over the last 20 years, it’s nothing compared to the next 10 years.  In the next 10 years, the change is going to accelerate.  We need to stop and take a big breath, and say I don’t want to be a patsy.  I was a patsy in the last 20 years.  I don’t want to be a patsy in the next 10 years.”

On the Middle East, Fitts says, “The Middle East is already out of control, and it’s been out of control for a while.  It you look at the long view . . . the Americans have been very clear.  They want to control the flow in Eurasia as ties between a wealthy Europe and a rising Asia increase.  Whether it’s the pipelines, the railroads or the roads, everything builds on the Silk Road, and we want to be in control.  It’s been very clear; first, it was Afghanistan, then Iraq and now Iran.  We’ve been making crazy both in the southern and northern route.  The northern route is Ukraine, and the southern route is the Middle East. That started in 2001 and it continues.  The question is what is it going to take for it to stabilize out.  The question also is, is the empire going to assert control or is it going to lose it and pull back?  The answer is we don’t know.”

Are we going to have a big U.S. dollar devaluation at some point?  Fitts says, “That’s a military question.  Where the dollar comes out really comes down to both the covert and overt military capacity of the United States. . . .  If you look at the benefits and the cost of running the Bretton Woods system that dominates the flow globally, it’s getting more and more expensive, and more and more difficult to do.”

On gold, Fitts says, “I think everybody believes they need some gold. Gold is central bank insurance. . . . Basically, what I say is you have to have a core position.  I don’t think gold will reassert the primary trend this year.  When I say that, it’s got to go above $1,550 per ounce to prove it has reasserted the primary trend.  I don’t see that happening this year.  Now, if the violence gets bad enough, it could. . . . I love gold.  I love money that you can put in your pocket and walk away.  It’s not digital, it’s private, and I think gold is a tremendous store of value. . . . I love silver too absolutely.”

    Good interview Greg. Sure have missed C. A. Fitts . Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. Ecclesiastes 8: 11
    http://biblehub.com/kjv/ecclesiastes/8.htm
    Question I have is how can a man with no job, and little currency not be a patsy for a criminal network that controls most of the world ?

    • Jerry

      He is JC. He is.

    • Po Rich

      Regarding the patsy question, I don’t know either, guess just continue doing what you think is right, and saying what you wish….whenever and wherever ! I ‘m pretty sure that wont get you a job, but maybe still, that pay is better!!! (I can’t find one either unless I go through a zillion checks and tests, find a long lost relative in “the company” and….swear allegiance to Satan, through behavioral compliance, if not actually verbally.

        Po Rich I am doing ok with my life savings to live from. I was considering 1/3 of America out of work. I have been planning on where I am going to run and hide. With gun in hand I should add. here is a way to get 10.00 off a cop. Thanks for commenting.

      Thanks for the links. This site has great posters with excellent links.
      It’s one of the reasons I come here….and the good speakers too! Thanks, Greg.

      My take, stability is NOT the goal. TPTB (right now!) want chaos, because they have lost control & want to hide that. They had a different plan & are now creating many false flag attacks like Paris, etc. They gutted the USA, and now need the heroin for their military money. They ruined their tax base in the US. If the heroin trade gets cut off- which it will according to JW- bye, bye military support of dollar. The globe is catching on—it’s about the Cabal. Ukraine will have to find its way…through misery. Greece can remake their country now. As a former novice, my entire education has been these sites. It’s a vastly different country than I thought we had, but I know the truth now. NULLIFY every thing since 1871 in the US & start over with the original Constitution.

    greg;
    Much better interview than last time, OR, I have become more informed to understand her more. I did enjoy this interview.
    I disagree with the 1 to 3 month prepping. I think minimum is a year. she is right about de-population, this will involve those casket liners, I believe we will have a total global melt down, but it will be in step down event. Similar to a step down transformer does in reducing voltage from High v. to a house hold usage, or a series of events over time. But then WHO KNOWS, like I told the jackass, we have had major events happen in just a few days and weeks.

    Here is his take;

    The Greek Exit (aka GREXIT) is going to blow up the European Union on the fiscal side. The Swiss Natl Bank is going to blow up the EU on the currency side. The USGovt sanctions are going to blow up the EU on the economic side. Germany is going to blow up the EU on the monetary side. Ukraine is going to blow up the EU on the energy side. Conclude the European Union is going to blow up.

    Here is EGON VON GREYERZ
    “This is what all central banks have done. They have trapped themselves in a corner. They have zero or negative interest rates. They are printing more money. They are buying more assets that they cannot sell which are worth a lot less than they are paying for them. So every single central bank in the world is bankrupt because they will never, ever get the price for their assets that they paid for them. This is why the financial system will not survive, and a total global collapse is now in front of us.” ~ Egon von Greyerz (Matterhorn Asset Mgmt)

    “Since I have entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above a whisper when they speak in condemnation of it.” ~ Woodrow Wilson (The New Freedom, 1912)

    “God forbid that I should travel with anybody a quarter of an hour without speaking of Christ to them.” George Whitefield

    • Shadow of Doubt

      Hey Allen,
      In regards to depopulation have you come across a Think Tank that is touting a U.S. population of 69 million by a date in the 2020’s? I was talking to an old member of the Soviet Block who vividly tells of Holodomor (Death by Starvation) as a means of crushing a people’s Independence and subjecting them a Socialist’s agenda. Like you I think having a food supply for just a few months is probably inadequate.

      • allen ols

        the shadow
        starvation has been used b 4 .

        mao tse tung, pol pot, stalin, and whenever Israel would blatantly sin against the Lord, the Lord would bring famine to the land.
        but I have never heard of the holodomor think tank.

      • Shadow of Doubt

        Allen,
        If you are interested you can find this information on utube (US population at 69 million by 2025) or at deagle.com. The fact that this information is suppose to be culled from the various branches in the US Military is sobering to say the least.

    • West Tejas

      Yep, I think the central banks want a ‘slooow’ burn and that’s their hope. Iceland let the cat out of the bag back in 2008 – 2010 and now guessing we will see Greece moving forward to also default on debt and prosecute those involved with cookin’ the books and creating fraud. If they move this way expect them to use Iceland as a road map.
      Obviously Europe could intervene and give them a sweetheart deal and 100 years to repay but not even sure that would work. Once bitten twice shy type of scenario.
      Looks like that slow burn theory may be encountering some high octane fuel?

    • Bill

      Planned long ago…

    Excellent interview Greg. Good to hear from some one who has a balanced view rather than some of our alarmists who see devastation around every corner.

    We are not seeing serious inflation yet because QE (money printing) has been quarantined in the derivative markets which are the parasites that feed on real assets.

    Jobs and consumption in the West will continue to shrink unless they pay the people who work enough money to consume the goods and services they produce. Inflation being created as debt is the big killer,as it far outstrips any real growth. Unless the West moves to Govt owned banks that can create money for infrastructure debt free, things will only get worse.

    Catherine was right about Charlie Hebdo. This short video suggests that they are lying to us yet again.http://stormcloudsgathering.com/charlie-hebdo-shootings-censored-video

  5. Jerry

    Greg,
    Catherine Austin Fitts has been right about the slow burn theory. You can’t look at what we’ve been through the last few years and deny it. The problem is, there is a paradigm shift underway away from the dollar that is about to change the rules of the game.

    From where I’m sitting we’re watching the world economies being divided into two camps right now. In one camp you have the BRIC nations and slew of other smaller countries like Switzerland signing onto the gold backed RMB, and then in the other camp you have the United States, Japan, and now the EURO living off a debt based system supported by money printing.

    To me the X-factor in all of this is the future of the Petrodollar. In my mind when king Abdullah of Saudi Arabia died, the petrodollar died with him. To many promises have not been kept for the house of Saud to stay loyal to the United States. To boot the Chinese have signed private agreements with the Saudi’s that will assure them a place at the RMB table when the time comes. When you take in consideration that Saudi wells are pumping 80% water (according to my sources) why wouldn’t make the deal with an emerging powerhouse like China? I would.

    Out of desperation to save the petrodollar, and demonstrate to the Saudi’s our loyalty to them, I believe the United States will create a black swan event in the middle east that will culminate with an attack on either Syria, or Iran, who are incidentally close allies with the Russians. Unfortunately for us this will have the same result as the NATO experiment in Ukraine. Only this time when it backfires, it will result in the loss of life for American’s instead of helpless Ukrainians. And in the end the Saudi’s will make their bed with the Chinese anyway.

    How do I know? A Saudi prince met with a Chinese diplomat in France in November 2014 to sign the agreement. On the way to the airport a western cabal assault team attacked the Saudi princes mobile security caravan in an attempt to steal the documents and rob them of their money.

      A lot of the inflation is masked as well. Food prices may seem stagnant yet companies are offering less for the same price but in the same packaging.

      Insurance companies are covering less. My mother uses an expensive inhaler that just stopped being covered after many years. Her premiums have not jumped (much) though.

      Our favorite candy that we buy online only just recently reduced their quality greatly.

      You can see it all over. The quality of things is getting worse, food included. If you can buy a burger for a buck at a fast food restaurant I shudder to think of the quality and sodium.

      Bill Holter http://blog.milesfranklin.com/
      Before finishing I would like to comment on Swiss, “neutrality”. The Swiss have always been connected to the Anglo banking and financial systems. Over the last 3-5 years they (the Swiss financial institutions) have been attacked time and again by Washington DC. with new rules and regulations, FATCA being the obvious. Their institutions have been blackmailed and strong armed into breaking secrecy laws which stood for well over a century. Do you think they liked or enjoyed this? Would they have changed their practice unless they were forced to? Of course not.

      So, “what’s in it for them” you ask? This is easy! Switzerland by allying with China is simply following “the power”. They will also be doing business in a “respectful” manner with the Chinese rather than with the disrespect they have worked under with the West. They also will now have another way to transact business, they will be entitled to and even enticed to use the new clearing system that Russia has formed… and not under the watchful eyes of SWIFT! As a speculation on my part, I believe the Swiss fully understand “what” it is that is coming. They can see as well as we can, the collapse is coming. A banking collapse, a derivatives collapse, a trade “war” and collapse, and a currency/credit collapse. If it is obvious to people like us who are not plugged in, it is more than obvious to them being at the heart of global finance. I believe they are simply positioning themselves ahead of collapse and “gittin’ out while the gittin’ is good”! I might add, they are doing this on their own terms and timing, not terms, conditions and timing which are forced on them!

      In my opinion, when we look back at what the Swiss are doing and have done, we will simply look at it as “the Swiss did what they had to do and what was best for the Swiss”. They have changed sides so to speak and done so in a front running and hands on manner. This is simply Switzerland doing what it does best …business!

      Question watchdoggers. Why would Qatar do this deal with the Chinese if the dollar was still king? Answer. It isn’t and they know it. When it comes to business the truth always overrides delusional hubris.

    • oz-con

      Jerry, I hope Vick Nuland reads this!

    • wd

      Jerry,

      My take on thsi is that the US/West is “fighting” on too many fronts right and I am not counting the economic fronts. It appears that Russia/China making right decision by staying in the spider web for now. Let the chaos happen while they wait it out.

      Too many cooks in the kitchen/too many irons in the fire. I see the US/West position as the little boy tryying to keep the dike from leaking and he is running all over the place trying to stick his finger in way to many holes. My last take is that I really believe that recent Greece election was a huge blow to the West and the banking sector. A big blow to the stability.

      • Jerry

        WD
        Good analogy. I’m hearing reports of the government stockpiling vast amounts of oil in anticipation of the collapse, so maybe things are coming to a head much sooner than we are willing to admit.

  6. David Brown

    She was noncommittal about percentage levels of precious metals. The collapse will cause losses for all, so IMHO silver will provide an inflation hedge. Should deflation reign, your losses won’t resemble those of holding gold.

  7. Po Rich

    Thanks again, the both of you….all good and true and still in best spirit !!
    Only question…..will the “individual gdp be brought up or down to “equalize”….what a funny question!!!!
    From my observations it appears that it has been going down for almost everyone for quite some time. My guess is that the way to balance the “inequity” will be to take the lowest amount and cut that in half!! Probably the judicial, law enforcement and military will be somewhat exempted (we do have to have rule of law).
    Could you hook me up with the NWO employment office, I need a job fast and don’t see much else on the horizon until the work camps are completed.

    • Miggy

      Nobody knows what is going to happen with the metals. If the Fed and Fort Knox are depleted my guess is some sort of confiscation or a revaluation based on the new currency norm, whatever that is, will happen.

      I am not saying do not own metals quite the contrary. But there are variables invloved that the general public are just not aware of so you need to spread it out if you are fortunate enough to do so.

      People talk of metals like they are an investment which is totally wrong. Like you said, metals are hedges against the unknown. At the end of the day not many know what is going to hold value when it comes to commodities and currencies.

      Glad you brought up the Dollar. Last Friday I was going to comment on the rise of the dollar. The last few weeks rise has been exceptional but the last 2 days were what I’d call parabolic. Sinclair taught me to sell that. I would call it an extreme “set-up”……….. Today Bob Moriaty had a write-up on that very fact……..

      • mohammad

        Jeff,

        strong or weak dollar is irrelevant as long as they are still harvesting gold from falling countries.
        What matters is leveraging that gold and replenishing Comex vaults to make delivery.

  13. Anne Elliott

    Love her wisdom – “be your own Central Banker”. Let independence from the System be your goal! Wish I could ask her a question tho – is she affiliated with the Templars organization? The silver Solari coin has a Templar knight on one side. Just curious – didn’t think they let women in that organization.

  14. mohammad

    Greg,

    Like what Hudes said a while back, they are all in cahoot and the baton is passed from one central bank to another and now it is the turn of ECB.
    The game will continue as long as there is gold harvested from the fallen countries (and for CAF i will ask her what happened to the gold of UKRAINE?) and delivered through Comex to whomever asking for it so the fever is suppressed with the Tylenol (paper gold) and the patient looks well enough to get him to sign some significant papers before letting him die.
    I do not know, and it is a mere speculation that the leverage is gold and silver has to be CRAZIER than 100 to 1 (paper/physical).
    With that huge CRAZY leverage any small tonnage harvested from a falling country can be augmented to considerable amount that will keep the game afloat and the musical chair game going.
    Depopulation is happening in Ukraine with the same playbook that is taking place in Syria, step by step.

    Another great interview.
    CAF lays out a very compelling and well reasoned analysis of the accelerating geopolitical and financial events that are unfolding . I also have to admire the fact that she humbly admits that no-one should bet the ranch on anything because the timing and the extent, as well as the detail of the chaos, is absolutely impossible to predict.

            I would not be surprised if in Jim’s mind this isn’t the best format for him to get his ideas across. In which case it deos not have to be anything personal as Jim has plenty of interview material linked at his site where most of those interviews run for over an hour with very little” give and take” in the discussion. It’s more like a debriefing on the current developments with highlights on important events according to his analysis. That’s just my take though, I have not heard or read any comment from Jim about this though. As always, the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be richly with your spirit Al!

    Just a “head’s up” for all you pensioner’s out there… The State of Illinois, after overspending on pork projects and renigging on promised pension payments for about a decade, now finds themselves only 20% funded in state pension payments and basically financially broke. For two years, they have been trying to decrease pensions and make pensioners pay for health insurance that was promised prior to them retiring as being “free”. The state law clearly says that “no benefit shall be decreased”, and so the changes the State has made are being challenged in the Illinois Supreme Court. Illinois State Attorney General Lisa Madigan has last week presented what her argument will be – that is the State of Illinois is invoking their “police powers” in order to save their budget. The Rule of Law has promised these people the money and benefits, whether “deserving” or not. I think this is a testing of the legal waters for a grander fleecing of pensioners to come. Whether Madigan’s argument succeeds or not, it is a case to watch.

    • wd

      Anne,

      Great post…funny its not being reprted in news. I will guess this is a big deal because a lot of pensions must be in this type of hot water. These are the cracks that all people notice. The ones that could careless about world wide events that are shaping our future lives. This is when all people statr to see how bad this situation is.

  17. ConcernedAmericanDad

    Greg, another excellent interview, you’ve been on quite a roll lately presenting quite a wide variety and various points of view………No doubt, as of late the pace is quickening.
    Over the past few years, you have been the steadiest of all my sources for real info. Rather than comment on the actual circumstances I just wanted to give you a “tip of the hat”. I without fail look forward to your presentations 3 times per week every week.
    Tonight’s interview was one of your best showcases as a real journalist!

  18. 8Ball

    The so-called “free” world has long labored under the illusion that it is actually free… In America one is free as long as they do what they are told to. Step over that line and you are more than likely to be killed by a “policeman” who is an enforcer for the leaders.

    Greg, it look like the Greece elections have elected the anti-austerity party, if that doesn’t shock the markets overnight I don’t know what would. Its a safe bet that the default of all the loans of Europe will be never repaid. Like I stated, if the markets don’t react very negatively to this striking event then the markets have totally lost all relevance, even to the MSM financial media this should be a big deal, but we shall see, maybe CNBC can find a buy signal with the Greece election results. Frankly, I’m proud of the Greek people to have taken a stand against the international bankers, maybe we should take a lesson!

  22. JM

      here is a great take on oil and more;

      That might be just the amount to time required to operate efficiently during the world’s greatest economic collapse EVER and during its aftermath while the rest of the world recovers from the depths of despair and chaos, death and destruction, when after 3 days all their food is gone from their store shelves and there is NO TRADE since all currencies have failed and it takes months for world leaders to convene and agree on a one world economic system going forward.
      Authors Mark Biltz and Jonathan Cahn tell us they expect a great economic disaster long about what is called the Shemitah 7 year cycle on or about “Feast of Trumpets” coming in September and have produced quite some evidence of these cycles for the 2008, 2001, 1994, 1987, and prior periods.
      Martin Armstrong has made his case for many years now with his computer database analysis cycles predicting a great economic crash in 2015.75 or late 3rd quarter of this year.
      Dozens if not hundreds of financial analysts and economists are screaming at us that all the financial markets are grossly manipulated by the central banks, bubbles are everywhere due to the manipulations, and they see little time left before something catastrophic happens.

      here is another parag;

      What it appears has been going on now since at least October is the United States government has been purchasing hundreds of millions of barrels of oil and storing them because between commercial and government actual demand not growing fast enough to mitigate the oversupply gap the oil has to go somewhere or else the over supply problem that has caused the 60% drop in oil prices would be far more exaggerated and we could indeed see world oil demand grind to a halt if in fact other countries are doing the same thing as the United States and buying up all excess supply and making it appear the world economy is strong and using up the oil, when in fact since economies are not mitigating the difference in real economic growth what we have is AN OIL BUBBLE ABOUT TO BURST!

      Imagine what happens once the commercial and government reserves are full and the United States has no where to put it all, and the oil futures markets see this so-called world over supply become suddenly several times as big?

      The price of oil would drop like a rock from what a few hours ago hit a $44 handle and we could easily see total loss of confidence in the futures and options and a mass exit occurs and price for quite some time heads South of $30 a barrel.

        ….AND

        Dozens if not hundreds of financial analysts and economists are screaming at us that all the financial markets are grossly manipulated by the central banks, bubbles are everywhere due to the manipulations, and they see little time left before something catastrophic happens.

        Then you have my belief that all the prophecies and the math behind those prophecies, in the Bible, points to September 23, 2015 as being the start date of Daniel’s 70th Week, the worst 7 years in the history of mankind where all remaining items we read in the book of Revelation will come to pass by mid Fall of 2022.

        No doubt Obama is going to get all the credit for this oil supply buildup just as he is going to get all the credit from Congress and the vast majority of the American people when he comes up with the one world government, one world currency solution in the aftermath of the worldwide financial collapse.

        Quote… ” United States government has been purchasing hundreds of millions of barrels of oil and storing them ‘. …………. Instead of worrying what would happen when they stop buying perhaps contemplate WHY they are buy……. First thought, preparation for war….. Second, preparation for dollar devaluation which would curtail the ability to buy (import) oil or at least buying at the low prices we’ve come to expect…….. I think it’s both and the ability to being able to purchase oil will be vastly curtailed……… While everyone has their eyes on lower prices they will be blindsided when the opposite occurs………. It seems like I’m the only one harping on this (shortages/higher prices)while everyone’s on the other side…………..You can point to all the supply articles you want. Oil and gold are the two most important commodities on earth. When war starts or a tanker/battleship is sunk in a main route oil doubles tomorrow. By the time missles are launched oil triples.

    I agree with your analysis up to the Saudi Black Swan thing. We will not protect them and they know it, not this administration. We let the Yemen King fall that killed what was left of the Petrodollar deal that Kissenger made. Saudi’s know they are on their own. I cannot figure out which Obama is running which part of the destabilization of the ME. If you believe he wants to hurt the USA as much as possible as I do, then he is helping to kill the Petrodollar. So the Saudi, are on their own like Yemen. A Dead Petrodollar does mean devalued dollar and much less US Military buying power, Again Obama’s success chit.
    Just watched the American Sniper and saw a follow up message from Texas. There was a huge honoring of his life in Texas and not one peep from the White House. Obama hates us killing Muslims but he is not willing to protect any, if it means saving the petrodollar, go figure? I guess we should be happy to pull back with that kind of leader.
    What say Jerry?

    • Jerry

      Coalburner,
      I don’t trust politicians “any politicians” anymore than I do bankers, so its a moot question. The globalist have achieved their goals. ” A dumbed down population that can be easily manipulated and controlled”. Obama phones were proof of that. Mission accomplished!

      A very reliable inside source recently told me that his contacts inside the military told him, that the United States will probably go through a slow burn collapse the rest of 2015 into a full blown collapse by the beginning of 2016, and that the United States probably won’t even exist as a country past 2017. Do I believe that’s true? Who knows? But I suggest preparing like it is, if you plan on surviving.

    • Jeff

      I agree. We also supported (allowed) the destabilization of Egypt, Libya and working on the rest. Why would he care about Saudi ? Another thing, a strong petrodollar is to our advantage. But also just getting oil from these countries is crucial. Without oil this country dies………Just another part of the plan (to destroy us).

    I went back and listened again. What a great interview. My interpretation of what Fitts said we/our corporations and banks backed by our military wanted to control the new flows from the Far East and Russia to Europe for their cut. Our business geniuses know the oil dollar power is coming to an end and they have known a while so they are way more interested in the new money flow than the one drying up in oil. This whole mess is what the destabilization of the ME has been about? All hidden and lied about to us by our Gov. Fitts is looking way further out than most. That was why she was in the big leagues.

    greg;

    great take on the formation of the EU and purpose. PCR

    The EU and the euro were deception and trickery. Countries lost their sovereignty. So much for Western “self-rule,” “freedom,” “democracy,” all slogans without content. In the entire West there is nothing but the looting of people by the One Percent who control the governments.

    In America, the looting does not rely on indebtedness, because the US dollar is the reserve currency and the US can print all the money needed in order to pay its bills and redeem its debt. In America the looting of labor has been through jobs offshoring.

    American corporations discovered, and if they did not they were informed by Wall Street to move offshore or be taken over, that they could raise profits by moving their manufacturing operations abroad. The lower labor cost resulted in higher profits, higher share prices, huge managerial bonuses based on “performance,” and shareholder capital gains. Offshoring greatly increased the inequality in income and wealth in the US. Capital succeeded in looting labor.

    The displaced well-paid manufacturing workers, if they were able to find replacement jobs, worked part-time minimum wage jobs at Walmart and Home Depot.

    Economists, if they are entitled to the designation, such as Michael Porter and Matthew Slaughter, promised Americans that the fictional “New Economy” would produce better, higher-paying, and cleaner jobs for Americans than the “dirty fingernail” jobs that we were fortunate our corporations were moving offshore.

    Years later, as I have proven conclusively, there is no sign of these “New Economy” jobs. What we have instead is a sharp decline in the labor force participation rate as the unemployed cannot find jobs. The replacement jobs for the manufacturing jobs are mainly part-time domestic service jobs.
    People have to hold 2 or 3 of these jobs to make ends meet. These part time jobs offer no medical or pension benefits.

    Hi Greg,
    If this wasn’t Ms. Fitts you were interviewing, I would have turned it off at one point.

    I am beyond tired of the Race Card being used against anyone that opposes Obama, one of the most polarizing – racially and otherwise- presidents we ever had. That includes, in my opinion, the present day Democrat party establishment and frankly, a certain segment of the Black political establishment.

    The Republican establishment orchestrated the ebola scare to assist in defeating the democrats at the polls? please. She ties this strategy of the republicans to us having a Black president and all the “brown people” pouring across our borders. To paraphrase Eric Holder, the White American citizens must be “cowardly racists.”

    It is obvious we have lost control of our borders. It sure appears to be deliberate. Many believe it is madness to bring Ebola (a contagious, incurable disease) patients here to America.

    I find it ominous how the Ebola scare appeared in the media and then went quickly away. What does this mean?

    Thanks Greg for letting me vent,

  34. Wim

    Hi Greg, great interview, excellent one. The goal to depopulate seems a long shot to me. The more workers there are, the more it compresses the price, as the Cabal don’t care who suffers or not. Populations getting killed in their plays, they don’t care about, as they see people as flies, collateral damage.

    I watched the link about Joseph P. Farrel added by Mohammad. ‘An external force in the system’, mister Farrel said. As far I understood it, external forces which interfere with the dominating financial forces, leaving them in the dark about that, not having control all the time, or something. It reminded me of an very odd experience in 2009, which I never talked about before, until now, outside my circle, launching it far away into the USA, as I don’t want to be the tinfoil hat guy. For almost 12 years, I receive masses of information from paranormal sources, which I contemplate with an open mind, not believing it, nor ruling it out, as in many topics I can recognize logic and consistency though, but keeping an open mind at all times no matter what, not to get carried away with it. As I was an entrepreneur, an one man business, from my 16th till my 36th, enjoying my life, yearly boat trips to the Med., after that era flying a Piper Seneca all through Europe for some 14 years, and so on, the paranormal contacts didn’t fit into my life at all, I wanted to close it out, but on the other hand I was intrigued by it though as I have to admit, an intriguing YouTube Channel, as some unbelievable physical experiences got added from time to time, to keep me intrigued I guess. In my social circle, I sometimes talk about the paranormal YouTube Channel, but only a small tip of the iceberg. When I now look back on that time, these almost 12 years, the pool of casual contacts began to grow out of nowhere. One contact told me about a global network of good forces against the evil ones in the world. That good forces network supposedly being responsible for persuading the Dutch financial minister to rescue the Dutch banks in 2008, as the rest of Europe followed after that, as the USA followed suit. That network making sure they would rescue the system, to avoid a sudden and total chaos.

    Evil forces targeted a complete meltdown he suggested, which I can surely see as a possibility. After the rescue, that minister left politics unexpectedly, that contact stating he didn’t want to be a part of the game anymore, not wanting the responsibility in that one, after he was informed by that network. Till that time he never told me strange stories, but after that it became the normal, him telling odd stories. In the summer of 2009, I met him again with that story about global networks of good forces. Somewhere in our conversation, he told me that this network is all over the place, infiltrated within all global secret services, and all aspects of governments, presidents, civil organizations, and so on, and so on, a sort of octopus like thing, with tentacles all over the place, doing what they can. That summer of 2009, he stated that they can influence for instance, via-via, the civil targets the Dutch air force select in their practicing games, without the military knowing they got influenced by that network. He told that these networks can temporarily interfere for instance the Dutch stock exchange, the AEX, as he claimed they are all over the place. He noticed I was very far away of believing that, as he claimed to be somewhat connected to a circle of that complex of networks. He said that if I was going to experience an odd flight of an F 16, to check the AEX at the moment that peculiar F 16 flight took place. I told that crazy story to my girlfriend of that period. Then, sometime later, a week or something, we were at a Church service of a diseased uncle of hers. In the middle of the service, an F 16 was flying low right over that Church, making an impressive tremendous noise, first time ever I experienced such a thing. At that very moment we looked at each other, knowing what it reminded of, as I automatically looked at my watch. Coming home, I checked the financial TV station, RTL Z, at the time of that F 16 exercise, a very sharp and wild gyration took place in the AEX. The RTL Z reporter with very impressed eyes mentioned that one, as he never saw it before, as he couldn’t grasp ‘how’ that was possible. I categorized it for 75% being coincidence, and 25% the experience of the completely unexpected, that contact being right, but as I have nothing to do with it, I categorized it being 100% coincidence, with some awkward thoughts in the back of my head of course. I remember well that girlfriend was convinced it not being coincidence, as she was the one making me aware that the pool of all kinds of casual contacts was growing. Then shortly after that, I was working on my boat, going for a drink, as that contact showed up again. At first, I didn’t mention I experienced what he predicted me, but I felt he somehow knew about it. I couldn’t, and can’t, see that such a network, as far it exists, shows itself to me, mister nobody. Then he began talking about it, and I admitted the experience, as I told him I labelled it as being coincidence, a devilish one, but nevertheless coincidence. I told him that as far such a network could exist, they have no business with mister nobody living his own life. Then he continued to speculate that network being in the know I receive masses of information from paranormal sources, as again he noticed me not believing at all. Then he went on, summarized as ‘next time when you navigate your boat, you will experience being the target of a military game’. Shortly after we went on a boat trip. As we were navigating, enjoying the freedom on the water, and a cup of coffee, a Chinook helicopter flew right at us, before overflying us changing course. A second one showed up, flying around us for some half an hour, or something. Then, the two Chinooks began to fly low over the water, some 6 feet high, some hundred yards behind the boat. After a minute they disappeared. My girlfriend at the time was already convinced with that first experience, as she always encouraged me to write a book about the spiritual thing, as she was not the only one, but I see it as a YouTube Channel, not wanting to be the one opposing religions out in the open, as far you get a book published, I don’t want to take the chance anyway. After that fortnight trip, again that contact showed up. Again, I didn’t mention the experience, but again he seemed to know, as I acknowledged, again stating it being coincidence, admitting it being a devilish one though. Then he mentioned I would experience such a thing with an F 16 through my street. Shortly after that, when I came home one day, I entered my home. I heard an F 16 shortly giving full power, as I automatically walked outside again, exactly at the moment I was on the edge of my driveway to take a look, an F 16 flew exactly in front of me, far too low, some 150 feet high through the street. At that moment I got the Roald Dahl feeling of ‘expect the unexpected’, as I couldn’t figure it out, being flubbercasted with it.

    Looking back on the past 12 years, the odd things piled up, as I could spend hundreds of pages to describe them all together. Of course, I contemplate about what I should make of it all, but categorizing it as a sort of Euro Disney kind of thing. The paranormal sources at one point stated the reincarnation of Jesus Christ (JC), still unaware of his spiritual identity, walks the earth, as a global network knows about that, observing him until he wakes up spiritually. That contact speculating a network knowing about my paranormal contacts, of course I contemplated the possible truth of the paranormal information, and the possible truth in the claims of that contact, and flying away in tinfoil hat land, I contemplated the possibility being the networks the paranormal source claimed, could be the same that contact claims. Of course, I asked my guiding spirit(s), but they kept silent on that one.

    As Bix Weir in his road to roota theory contemplates about Alan Greenspan being a good guy, enabling the system hitting the wall at a certain point, to make the evil scheme very transparent to the people, to avoid a replay for once and all, or something. The paranormal contacts confirming they inspired JFK unconsciously to take that convertible ride the day he got executed. The same philosophy, he left his message in executive order 11110, making silver money again, but leaving the stage to let things run its course, as protection against such an execution isn’t watertight anyway. 11 22 = 33, the dying age of JC according the story, as the spirit of JFK once played the role of JC, the date was fitting the numerological crypt, 22 11 = 33. JFK’s spirit had to move on anyway, to reincarnate in the next physical body, then with the aim of his spiritual role, entering the stage at some point in time. The paranormal source claiming that network encouraging the ultimate clash in religions, 911, ISIS, and so on. Preparing a world reconsidering all her systems. All together to set the stage for the reincarnation of JC, entering the stage after his spiritual wake up, supporting the comeback of JC with a truth advocating mechanism all over the place. As stated before, at times I fly away in tinfoil hat land, as the line of thinking could trigger an ‘AHA moment’ in the more rational topics you contemplate, as I would like to believe something good is interfering in the world of course. One thing it made me convinced about, we don’t know what is going on behind the scenes, which make exact predictions very difficult. As far the possibility of the murder of Charlie Hebdo was co orchestrated from the west, the fear side of the number 8 fits that one, 01 07 = 8, 2008, as the 8 is to be seen in the Ebola virus, which some consider to be an engineered one. May the view of the founding fathers of America go viral one day, and Love be The Dictator. Expect the unexpected.

    Ms. Fitts’ observation that we don’t have rule of law goes to the very heart of all that’s unfolding now. We haven’t had rule of law in the U.S. since before the Civil War; instead, we’ve had a steadily increasing rule by the lawless. Government exempts itself from laws prohibiting extortion and coercion, and it exempts the banking system from laws prohibiting fraud and counterfeiting. Such fundamentally corrupted systems must ultimately fail; it’s only a question of when they will fail, how much damage will be done, and whether we will learn the lessons of failure and build better systems next time.

    Greg: re CAF’s depopulation meme:
    Few are aware that the incremental actions to depopulate Western countries and more specifically, the North American continent have been ramped up considerably just in the past decade, and helped enormously by the Fukushima disaster with its never ending and unstoppable radiation emissions, which will be responsible for at least 50% of all life threatening cancers within a decade. Then there’s the conspiracy facts on GMOs, Chemtrails, Fluoride (a neurotoxin, directly affecting cognitive brain issues). Not to mention government required and enforced vaccines, proven largely to be ineffective, but that can be linked to autism, which a Harvard researcher predicts will affect 50% of all births in the US within a decade. Fifty years ago, autism was a 1/2000 occurrence; today it is 1/<50.

    “The West has devolved into a police state in which government is no longer accountable to law or to the people. There are no jobs for young people, and no income security for the elderly. The West is actually in the process of looting itself. Just look at what is happening in Greece. In order to guarantee the profits of the private banks from outside Greece, the Greek people have had their pensions cut, their employment cut, their social services cut, and they have had to sell their valuable public properties at low prices to private purchasers from outside their country. The same looting is now going on in Ukraine, and Italy, Spain, and Portugal face the identical fate.”

    CAF has a definitely interesting take with differing points of emphasis. Her insight into the power structure, economic and political,does dove tail with other commentators views but does have that differing emphasis. If a person overlays the views of say CAH, Willie and a Rickards you can begin to get a picture, if blurry, of what the movers and shakers on this planet are aiming for. Their mistakes become more readily apparent also. Great stuff you can tap into at the one web site…well done Greg Hunter.

  44. Rich

    A part of me wants to hope that CAF is correct. It would be the least painful option, sort of.

    Another part of me fears that CAF is correct, because the “police state” will continue to grow and tighten the screws on us. I don’t think we will ever get our freedoms back if she is correct.

    _____________WHITE MAN SPEAK WITH FORKED TONGUE———————-
    This expression did not originate with television. It has a much longer history, dating possibly to the 17th century. From Wikipedia:

    The phrase “speaks with a forked tongue” means to say one thing and mean another or, to be hypocritical, or act in a duplicitous manner. In the longstanding tradition of many Native American tribes, “speaking with a forked tongue” has meant lying, and a person was no longer considered worthy of trust, once he had been shown to “speak with a forked tongue”. This phrase was also adopted by Americans around the time of the Revolution, and may be found in abundant references from the early 19th century — often reporting on American officers who sought to convince the tribal leaders with whom they negotiated that they “spoke with a straight and not with a forked tongue” (as for example, President Andrew Jackson told the Creek Nation in 1829[16]) According to one 1859 account, the native proverb that the “white man spoke with a forked tongue” originated as a result of the French tactic of the 1690s, in their war with the Iroquois, of inviting their enemies to attend a Peace Conference, only to be slaughtered or captured.[17]

    —————————-◄ 1 Thessalonians 5:1-4 ►________________________

    5 Now as for the times and the seasons, brothers, you need nothing to be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know very well that great day is coming exactly as a thief in the night. 3 Whenever it is that they are saying, “Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly on them, just like birth pains on a pregnant woman, and they will by no means escape. 4 But you, brothers, you are not in darkness, so that the day should overtake you as it would thieves,

    Whenever it is that they are “saying”. So they may not say it just once. It may be an ongoing thing. OR it may be that something specific has happened that they say it in a new and somewhat different way. Maybe after they have destroyed religion, they will think they FINALLY have a chance for peace without religious differences spurring them on to start wars.

    But notice too, the scripture says “like the pangs of distress upon a pregnant woman and they will by no means escape”. I don’t know how old you are or whether you’ve experienced childbirth or not, but I have 3 times. I know that when those labor pains start, you have a very focused very committed feeling almost a trapped feeling that you KNOW, you aren’t going to get out of what is coming.

    That the pain, the labor is going to get worse, more painful more intense, that you are going to feel more and more “out of control” as the labor pains come closer and closer together until that baby is born. You AREN’T going to escape it. You are going to go through it until the child is born and it is over. There IS no escape once those “pangs of distress” start. They may start small, you may have a brief but intense labor, or you may have a very LONG-lasting difficult labor.

    But either way, the “sudden” destruction part ot the scripture happens at the END of the labor.

    That, saying, “peace and security,” is happening NOW and getting louder. It may change in some way and be said in a different way, or it could be that the nations are in “labor” now, and how long their labor lasts is up to God.

    Either way, the scripture (whatever it means) is true. So if you are hearing cries of “Peace and Security” (and I’m sure you have been I’ve seen them too, in fact there is even a heading on the United Nations website that says exactly that!), then I would think it would make you start to question how much time is left.

    In recent years, politicians have used the phrase “peace and security” to describe various human schemes. Do such efforts by world leaders constitute the beginning of the fulfillment of 1 Thessalonians 5:3? Or was Paul referring only to a specific event of such dramatic proportions that it will claim world attention? Since Bible prophecies are often completely understood only after they are fulfilled or in the course of fulfillment, we will have to wait and see.

    As others have said the cry of Peace and Security is a Biblical statement.

    Yes it is true that many governments have been saying similar things.

    The Bible does not spell out EXACTLY when this will happen, but it will be a time when least expected because we are also told “Sudden” destruction. This indicates a time when it will be a surprise to all.

    However the warning is still there in the Bible and it helps serve, to keep us awake to the things happening.

    Politicians have been saying it more often in these, “last days of this wicked old war weary world system” and that is because, that is what the war weary public wants to hear.
    Today things are getting clearer as time goes on. We see the politicians getting more fed up with religious leaders. Once bed buddies, religious leaders are getting to be a liability in politics. Soon Revelations 17:16-17 will be fulfilled. Notice in vs.17 it is God who puts it into the minds of the politicians, to rid the planet of them.
    Whether it means they are saying that we have peace and security now or that we want peace and security. It doesn’t really matter because that is only one of the signs we should look for. Do you really want to know when the end is? I don’t. There are many family and friends I would like to learn from the bible before it is too late. Noah was only given a weeks notice to get into the Ark before it started to rain. Lot and his family were given one days notice. So how much time we will actually get before God strikes is unknown for now.

    “But know one thing, that if the householder had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have kept awake and not allowed his house to be broken into. On this account you too prove yourselves ready, because at an hour that you do not think to be it, the Son of man is coming.”

    The Christian prophet and apostle, Paul, added some helpful information that would help Christians recognize the immediate approach of God’s great day. In the 5th chapter of 1st Thessalonians, Paul verified that God’s day was indeed coming like a thief in the night, but that immediately preceding his arrival “they” would be saying: “Peace and security!”

    The question naturally arises: who is going to be saying ‘peace and security’? The prophecy does not say. It only says ‘whenever it is they are saying’ it.

    But, it seems reasonable that, “they” are the United Nations. After all, the United Nations Organization was set up after the Second World War for the express purpose of establishing peace and security on our war-wracked planet.

    However, contrary to the opinions of some, whenever they are saying ‘peace and security’ in fulfillment of the prophecy, it does not instantaneous result in the nations being destroyed by God at Armageddon.

    The prophecy says that, ‘whenever it is that they are saying: “Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly upon them just as the pang of distress upon a pregnant woman”

    The “sudden destruction” that occurs instantly comes from a human source and is evidently the destruction that comes upon the present capitalistic nation-state system.

    Daniel 10:1 says that the prophet received a revelation of a matter having to do with “a great military service.” Later, the angel, Gabriel, appeared to Daniel and explained to him the detailed historical developments leading up to the great military service, in what is commonly known as the prophecy of the king of the north and the king of the south. Daniel 11:40 foretells the final clash between the two kings, of the north and south, that is to occur as a result of the time of the end having finally arrived.

    According to the prophet, the king of the north is going to come storming with an irresistible army, so as to flood over the lands and subjugate his rival. Since the prophecy indicates that this occurs during the time of the end, or conclusion, it must be the very thing that Christ also had in mind when he foretold that nation rising against nation would be the beginning of pangs of distress–marking the start of the conclusion of the system of things.

    ____________________Babylon the Great?

    According to Revelation 17:17, Babylon the Great is not destroyed until first all the kings of the earth give their authority to the wild beast, and it should be obvious that all the nations are not going to simply forfeit their national sovereignty to world government under normal circumstances.

    We may therefore anticipate that some calamity beyond the vision of our imagination is going to have to take place to coerce the nations of the world into relinquishing their national independence.

    Paul’s prophecy in the letter to the Thessalonians indicates that that sudden destruction is really just the pangs of distress such as a pregnant woman experiences during childbirth.

    So, after that initial sudden destruction occurs, we may then expect to see the Anglo kings become subservient, and the United Nations catapulted into the position of the 8th king. This, of course, likely requires that the United States take the lead in relinquishing control of its military and nuclear arsenal to the United Nations. Then, and only then, will Babylon the Great be thrown off her beastly mount and devoured during the ongoing tribulation.

    Well the Bible says that armageddon would come when Peace was being shouted by the rulers, so yes I do believe, on some level that is what will happen.

    True christians are footstep followers of Jesus Christ,……..Jesus wanted people to know where his message came from. He said: “What I teach is not mine, but belongs to him that sent me.” (John 7:16) On another occasion, he said: “I do nothing of my own initiative; but just as the Father taught me I speak these things.” (John 8:28) Further, he said: “The things I say to you men I do not speak of my own originality; but the Father who remains in union with me is doing his works.” (John 14:10) One way that Jesus proved the truth of such comments was by quoting God’s written Word again and again. Just as we do…Jesus said at Revelation 3:20 Look! I am standing at the door and knocking. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into his [house] and take the evening meal with him and he with me.

    You are, no doubt, aware that it was the apostle Paul who, under divine inspiration, stated at 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3:

    For you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.” NIV

    So christians did not invent this; it is clearly scriptural and Paul was Jewish and a citizen of Rome. That being said, do christians continue to believe the inspired record, God’s word the Bible? Yes, they do. The above is part of that inspired record.

    No matter who will share in saying “Peace and security!” that development will indicate that God’s great day is to begin. Paul could therefore state: “Brothers, “USAWatchdogs,”you are not in darkness, so that that day should overtake you as it would thieves, for you are all sons of light.” (1 Thess. 5:4, 5) Unlike mankind in general, we discern the Scriptural significance of current events. How exactly will this prophecy about saying “Peace and security!” be fulfilled? We must wait and see. Therefore, let us be determined to “stay awake and keep our senses.”—1 Thess. 5:6; Zeph. 3:8. And beware, neo-cons speak with forked tongue!

    Greg,

    Ms. Fitts believes the dollar’s fate depends on US military capacity. She has it backwards: US military capacity is ultimately dependent on the world’s confidence in the US dollar.

    All the best,

    Len

    • mohammad

      Len,

      Am sorry but seems you got it backwards,
      The confidence in dollar was after Kissinger shoved and crammed it down King Faisal’s throat and told him either petro dollar or we will remove you and occupy Saudi Arabia, king Faisal then said ok …But they still removed him for good.

      Mohammad

      • Len Penzo

        Mohammad,

        I said “ultimately.” Kissinger’s deal merely extended confidence in the dollar after Nixon closed the gold window.

        You need to look forward, not backwards. When confidence in the dollar dies, the US will no longer be able to maintain its massive military.

        Best,

        Len

        • mohammad

          Len,
          Confidence in dollar died long time ago, military is what keeping it afloat, hence those proxy wars you see every where.

          • Len Penzo

            Mohammad,

            Although it is waning, there is still enough confidence in the dollar to keep it as the world’s reserve currency. That is the exorbitant privilege that allows the US to maintain such a large and expansive military. By definition, confidence will be officially lost when the dollar experiences hyperinflation. No military can maintain confidence in a dying currency at the point of a gun — just ask the Romans.

            Len

            • mohammad

              Len, wd,

              What brought prosperity to Romans was WARS, history testifies to that, They used to call Syria the SILO of Rome, because they were stealing its wheat which is known to be the best in the world until now. They did the same to other countries by stealing its gold with wars. Silk road is for any one to read and how controlling it with military brought prosper to whom controlled it.
              What caved their empire was the Babylonians that were slaved from Iraq but special type of slavery. they were highly educated and the term was that if the Roman master dies then the Babylonian slave is free, he was supposed to teach the children of the Roman nobles math, sciences….etc.
              After a while the Romans found that the Babylonians are in control of their currency and started to flip against them (but after they destroyed Rome from WITHIN) so they kicked them to VENICE….then after they controlled the whole trade in the Mediterranean basin they were also fought against and kicked to Amsterdam…then to LONDON and hence came the Rothschild family.
              They were riding on the first ship came to this land and they were here from day one.
              A little bit history for you to realize that the reason for destruction of Rome is the same cabal that is been at the helm of central banks, their game is PUSHING YOU TO WAR because that are STEALING YOU from within, so wars become the only way to maintain prosperity, and IF CAF IS READING THIS SHE CAN TALK ABOUT HER RED BUTTON AND HOW MANY WILL PUSH IT TO REMAIN PROSPER.
              Same game been played over and over the years.

              Mohammad.

          • wd

            Mohammad,

            With all due respect what happens when all those soldiers, mostly poor enlisted, get paid in dollars with no worth. They walk away, orders or not. There is still confidence in the dollar, and when that goes ( I mean really goes) then it all goes-especially military. Len is right.

            I know this is a simple look at this, but having military experience I can tell you first hand it won’t take much for them to walk away.

            • Jeff

              Frankly, I can’t believe they don’t walk away now. Money or not, there’s not ONE war we are invested (now) in that is worth one life and certainly not one that is Constitutional. Ask our Founding Fathers.

              • Jeff

                If they walked and we ignored April 15th the main problems would be solved…… Why don’t we take our tax money and send it to all our men who walk ? That’s killing 2 birds with one stone.

    Many players around the world are stepping away from the central bank dance.

    Europe is a mess. USA citizens are in the dark to the truth.

    Every where you look you see things barely clinging together.

      Silver is far more undervalued than gold. I love gold but haven’t bought any in a while – only silver.

    • Paul from Indiana

      TJ and Greg, Gold and silver are investments the way insurance is an investment. Get what you can of both. Silver will be useful for day-to-day survival in “independent” exchange (black market). Gold will be for your restart when the chaos is over. Just my take. Best always. PM

    Hi Greg,

    Thanks for all you do.
    I’ll second Catherine’s suggestion to get Stewart Thomson on. I think he’d make an absolutely fantastic interview.

    I got a real expert, not a spook! He laughed at me when I mentioned this a while back.
    We watch the skies pretty close down here in clear sky country. I am not buying until I see some evidence. This is to hot a subject to hold in a bottle with my contacts. Will something hit earth one day, it is 100% sure but Niberu as presented so far is bull. I recall being hot on the Shoemaker Levy Comet strikes on Jupiter in the ninetys. Numnut news people thought it was bigger than it was. Yes it was fantastic to have Hubble Infared and Ultraviolet animations but no knowledgeable people were surprised. It was however, great fodder for new University Grants from Stupid politicians. I was ok with that too, better than some so called “research”.

    Force Majeure in gold may be close at hand.
    The pressure on physical gold and silver is coming from many fronts.
    As difficult as the transition would be, the ramifications of a huge price adjustment could be devastating for entities on the wrong side of the fence.
    The system has been suffering from artificial influences for too long and the day of reckoning is close at hand.
    One can see that it appears that they are having a difficult time in keeping gold from moving up. Yes they continue to try but at some point soon one can expect new players to move and tell the world that GOLD is going to return as a basis for fiat systems.

    The coiled spring is under tremendous pressure and this is going to cause a major upward adjustment in value sooner rather than later.

    Overnight repricing of gold will happen soon and the ramifications will be tremendous.

    • Greg Hunter

      Thanks for the reporting and analysis Mike. They have escaped a Force Majeure in gold many times. It is baffling to me how they can keep this going with a limited and shrinking amount of gold.

    Well we’ve heard that before many times and it seems this time with our dear leaders chomping at the bit for a real emergency to test their powers for the big one to come, the financial meltdown, they all made fools of themselves, when we only got a few inches of snow! So was this a test run?Do they know something the general population does not know. We USAWatchdogs know they do and we certainly will see more of this muscle flexing buffoonery, as the powers that be feel we need their elite guidance and protection and of course less freedom, so we wont get ourselves into trouble along the way as they make bigger and bigger fools of themselves, because of one simple fact, they fail to realize, there is a God in heaven!

    WE ARE ALREADY IN WWIII, just by proxy so far, the direct one will be once they (West) have boots on the ground in Syria, which is coming soon after the build up they have in Kuwait.
    Russia will defend Damascus as if it is Moscow.
    No question about it, 4 years so far are a proof.

    Don’t get me wrong, I like the other guys too, but I appreciate the fact that CAF is more nuanced in the way she expresses herself. Rob Kirby for example can come across as a little dogmatic when he tells you to go buy hard assets you can stand in front of with a gun. Although I realize CAF has expressed similar sentiments it just comes across in less of a “doom porn” kind of way which is good for my mental health. Or what’s left of it.

      Greg

      • mohammad

        Greg,

        Netanyahu is threatened by losing elections to LIVNI and he may be ousted if his gamble with the congress did not pay off. So far he lost the gamble, Obama trumped him and the congress is dialing back the tone on new sanctions.
        That leaves him with one of two options:
        1- to do something crazy and attack.
        2- accept a defeat to LIVNI (I do not see how can he win elections after that visit to congress that fired back on him big time).
        I know he is WICKED.
        Time will tell what his next move will be, but for sure he is hitting the iranians in Golan heights hard and doing his best to trigger their response, so far they are not but will see what happen, HE IS CORNERED and that what scares me.

  61. Silence is Golden

    Greg,
    Another remarkable interview. This one is a standout on so many different levels.
    Catherine is a very complex and astute woman. She gives a first hand account of the intertwined matrix…. that we otherwise know as our world held hostage by criminals.
    It is no wonder that Catherine has a constant target on her back. Without being intentionally condescending, she has an outstanding comprehension of what makes the world really tick.
    Her messages are delivered in her usual style. Some are clear cut….whilst others require further inference (the language she uses can be obtuse and sometimes delivered with hidden meanings -which I don’t believe is intentional on her part). I can only say that she is absolutely spot on the mark. There are many warnings within her comments. The subtle ones are the most dangerous ones in my book.
    The “Lawlessness” is totally insidious and endemic.
    The “Disintegration of the Sovereign State” is ominous for many reasons.
    The “Integration of the Global Economy into the Equity Model” should be ringing all alarm bells and lighting all red lights.
    It is unquestionable that all is not well. These matters and a litany of others do get noticed but they are not fully deciphered by the populace for their true meaning.
    Observations made by CAF and many other commenters and Financial heads are chillingly accurate however the overriding theme is that there is little “WE” can do about it except….PREPARE….as best you can.
    They have, over the course of history, repeatedly drained the life out of the system and this time its no different.
    I shall keep her comment ” The System is constantly harvesting portions of the population in order to keep refreshing the wealth of the system” as a sickening reminder of the nature of the people who created such a system.
    Thank you Catherine. The interview and your offerings were priceless.
