Empire Strikes Back on Trump-Catherine Austin Fitts

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

Investment advisor Catherine Austin Fitts says the oligarch, or establishment class, is on the attack. She calls this latest chapter in the Trump Administration “The Empire Strikes Back.”  Fitts explains, “Number one, Trump came into Washington with an agenda that would really make America great again:  tax reform, regulatory relief, infrastructure and Obama Care.  Immediately, he got bogged down in those for a variety of reasons.  If you look at Congress’s constituents, they can’t make money solving those things, particularly if it helps regular people.  So, immediately you bog down on those issues.  He’s trying to get his cabinet in place.  In the meantime, you have the Empire worried about a variety of things.  If you want to slow Donald Trump down or make sure the only thing he can get through Congress are things that are good for what I call the “piggies,” . . . the first thing you do is take out their loyal lieutenants.  You take them out and try to put space between him and his lieutenants.”

Fitts, who was an Assistant Secretary of Housing in the first Bush (41) Administration, goes on to say, “The U.S. bureaucracy is huge and very complex, and it’s a matrix structure. The thing you want to do is bollocks him up in the structure.  The reason you want to bollocks with a bureaucracy or the courts is then you bring everything into the mud and complicate their lives and make things harder to do. . . . What you are seeing is a war between the ‘piggies’ and ‘Titanic Turners.’  The big question is can Trump learn how to play the game.”

How does Trump win? Fitts contends, “Trump wins by staying focused on the real issues.  The U.S. economy needs a variety of things, including turning the federal budget around. . . . . The reality is the federal budget has a negative return to taxpayers.  It’s got to be turned positive. . . .  That comes down to tax reform, infrastructure and it comes down to Obama Care. . . . Trump is the Titanic Turner, and he needs to stick to the big issues. . . . He has to make sure the shriek-o- meter does not destroy his top lieutenants and put space between him and them.  Otherwise, the pigs are going to step in and run things.”

In closing, Fitts says, “What’s killing this economy is corruption and lawlessness. That’s what’s killing the economy.  We need to deal with these problems.”

After the Interview:

Fitts adds that Trump is up against evil forces who want an inhuman society. The evil forces against him say Trump is crazy.  Fitts says everyone should keep in mind that “Trump is NOT crazy for wanting a human society.”

    Many thanks Greg for a great guest and interview.
    Trump needs to have good people around him for support, and boy do I admire the mans tenacity, at 70 he is still full of fire.

    • This sceptred Isle

      I wish I had Trump’s energy at half the age!

      • This sceptred Isle

        still don’t agree with his stance on renewable energy

          I think it’s the global game, we can’t get our act together here, apart for the city of Adelaide. Sydney weather over the weekend was 116F, I was glad to get back into Melbourne at 78F

        • Chip

          Renewable energy is not renewable, I must respectfully disagree with you. The energy returned on energy invested is NEGATIVE. What “renewables” are good for is for back ups when power is lost and/or for remote areas. No offense friend, JMHO… Chip

    • ross

      I just wonder what game Trump is playing. More sanctions and aggression towards Iran since it will soon stop trading oil is US $. This is exactly the same reason Saddam Hussein was attacked. Gerald Celente and Jeff Rense give an alternate view here; https://www.youtube.com/user/JRense

    • Kevin Willbond

      I always enjoy Catherine Austin Fitts insight and perspective on the issues. As far as President Trump’s job goes I wish him well. I think he would do better to remove himself from the ties with Goldman Sachs. That is NOT the change I voted for and seems to be more of the same of the old “insider crap” that has gotten use to where we are today. The Banks and Wall Street control things, TOTALLY. I hope for the best but fear the worst.

      • Paul ...

        Kevin … you are correct … Catherine Austin Fitts has the insight and perspective to say that “what is killing our economy is corruption and lawlessness” … but lets expand her views … something even more important then the economy is being killed … it is our world … Scientists estimate that 99 percent of the species that have ever existed … no longer do … today we are in the mist of the sixth(6th) great extinction … forests and bees are vanishing, fuck-us-chima has just about killed all life in the Pacific Ocean, etc. … in the previous five(5) mass extinctions between 60 to 90 percent of all species were killed off … so I ask the question … is the recent WikiLeaks tweets about Vault 7 the beginning of the release of information that will confirm … a great extinction is now underway … and that people better begin to prepare “their own vaults” if they are interested in preserving society?? … but a bigger question needs to be answered … is “corrupt, immoral and lawless man” worthy of being saved??? … http://heavy.com/tech/2017/02/what-is-vault-7-wikileaks-theories-vault7-tweets-photos-analysis-clues-twitter-who-where-when-why-how/

    This is probably why trump’s Cabinet disappointed many people…he needs people who can help him navigate the Washington maze.

    Is there any evidence to suggest trump is a gold bug?

    • Frederick

      No but I did read somewhere that he accepted gold bullion as payment for a property he sold That certainly doesn’t make him a “goldbug” whatever that means

  9. Carl Boone

    Superstition Prediction
    A quote from a 1995 book by the late astronomer and science communicator Carl Sagan struck a nerve with some readers decades later.

    “Science is more than a body of knowledge; it is a way of thinking. I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time — when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness.”

    This excerpt was taken from Sagan’s 1995 book The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark. In a May 1997 review of that work, Smithsonian magazine described Sagan’s motivation for writing it:

    In The Demon-Haunted World, the late astronomer Carl Sagan writes in defense of science and reason in a world he sees as darkened by ignorance, superstition, pseudoscience, deceitful advertising and mindless television. [MSM?] Much more;


    • This sceptred Isle

      If you criticise the ‘experts’ you are either unscientific, uneducated or both. Apparently thinking for yourself means you’re ignorant if you disagree with the officially approved consensus.

    • Chip

      When you see the ignorance of people who will protest to allow illegal immigration, who will use violence and destroy their own neighborhoods to protest that a thug was shot by a police officer doing his duty, and will continue to elect the likes of Pelosi, Ried, Waters, McCain, and others, then you completely understand why Carl wrote this book… Chip

      Gen. Eisenhower forced whole towns of German civilians to see the camps and slaughtered first hand, the policies carried out in their name. Would Americans wake up if they were forced t0 see what NATO did in Libya and ISIS did using US weaponry?

      Remember Life Magazines Weeks Dead in Vietnam formatted as a high school yearbook in 1969? Americans are no longer confronted in every grocery store or newstand with Life covers…for instance the 12 year old African American boy shot in the back by the police during the Newark riots. There he lay, with the Coke sixpack he looted in the chaos.
      Americans MUST be confronted with what has been done in their name, with their money, in their own time. Life had flaws but there was no way to hide your eyes from their covers and their brave photographs. Now we can just scroll away and never see anything…like the 3 monkeys.

    Outstanding interview! CAF is routinely brilliant. Trump would be blessed to have her perspective as an advisor in his administration. Keep up the great work Greg! God bless, -Nick

  17. Jerry

    CAF may be right on a lot of things, but at the end of the day the central banks are the ones that run the global matrix by deciding how much or how little our currency is worth, not the politicians. http://russia-insider.com/en/its-happening-russia-china-dump-us-treasuries-buy-all-gold-they-can-get/ri18875

    The Exchange Stabilization Fund’s bucket is just about full from mopping up all those treasuries that have been dumped on the global market. And then what? Resell them all over again? I think not. Look at the bond market and where its headed. Ding…Ding.. Ding…Ding….Ice berg dead ahead.

    • Jerry

      Even Stevie Wonder could see the systematic restructuring of the worlds financial system by the globalist. http://www.euromoney.com/Article/3107796/The-future-of-the-RMB-special-focus.html

      I was told by my sources a few months ago that the primary reason Donald Trump ran for president was to try and save his financial legacy for his children and grandchildren. It makes perfect sense to me considering that one of the first calls he made was to President Xi Jinping of China.

      What happens between now and April 21st is critical. There is no doubt in my mind that the ECB will be the first to go, followed by the BOJ. The IMF cannot save the EU without help from the Chinese, which means a deal must be made that gives them dominance in the IMF.

      • Tin foil hat

        Whatever happens between now and April 21st is merely another small gradual step to a multilateral international monetary system. A new set of governance reforms are being rolled out by the IMF over the next few years with a focus on 2019 for approval and implementation by 2022. This builds on the 2010 Quota and Governance Reforms which were agreed upon in 2009 but were not implemented and enacted until 2016.
        The final transformation will not happen until the Exchange Stabilization Fund mops up all those treasuries that have been dumped on the global market – the renminbi should be almost 1:1 to the dollar by the time this takes place.
        China is the largest holder of USD denominated debt outside of the Federal Reserve. However, regardless of the massive U.S. Treasury which the Russian and Chinese had sold, China finds its dollar denominated reserves slowly depleting while no appreciation of the renminbi takes place. The Chinese are probably scratching their heads since there isn’t any precedent in this magnitude which they can study, copy and implement.
        When the Shanghai International Energy Exchange is opened and trades oil in renminbi along with the Shanghai Gold Exchange which is already operational, I suspect that will probably be the trying moment for the dollar. However, as long as China can’t let go of the urge to restrict capital outflows – let alone gold, renminbi is no threat to the dollar by itself.
        The million dollar question is will China be more willing to let go if the capital outflows were done via SDRs as a host???

        • Jerry

          Tin Foil hat.
          That may have been the game plan, but I think European Nationalism will force them to play their hand much sooner than they planned for. Somebody has to pick up Greece, and Italy’s debt and without England and France that’s not going to happen. Its every man (or country) for himself. The Ship is going down.

          • Tin foil hat

            You are right, nobody knows exactly what may happen if/when it snaps. I infer not only the Chinese are scratching their heads regarding this bag of sh@ts, the Europeans are probably doing the same.
            Come to think of it, the reason I haven’t sold my PMs is because I haven’t stop scratching my head since 2009.

            • Frederick

      • Jerry

        Like I said the global collapse will start in the European Union.

        If you’re looking to circle a date for when the domino’s will begin to fall a good place to start is March 31st when the elections in France will culminate with France joining England outside of the EU. Without the combined financial clout of both England and France the EU will come unraveled taking down the European Central Bank with it. Should I even have to mention that Deutsche Bank is teetering on collapse along with Greece and Italy? Even batman couldn’t get out of this mess.

        Brace yourself, because the backup plan is in the works and will be finalized on April 21st when the IMF and World Bank meet in “Washington DC” to put the ink to it. And guess what? It doesn’t include us.

      • Charles H


        I wonder if the power financier elite view even China as another body to infect, with taking over the host in mind – eventually. Kinda like a tick that kills it’s host, over time – then finds another host? PMs are substance – which there isn’t enough to go around: so fiat, in one form or another is necessary. Considering technology is here to stay – intangible electronic processing is as good as valueless paper products. The plans of mice or men are subject to corruption.

        • Jerry

          Charles the Rothschild’s have been grooming China as our replacements since 1944. The City of London Corporation was the one who originally bankrolled the Peoples Bank of China. Lets face it, three Billion consumers is to much temptation for any greedy banker to resist. NAFTA was just another way to put money in their pockets and bleed them dry.

      AimeeNJoy Diaspora of No Country • 3 days ago
      Exactly. This is a Russian propaganda person talking. Look at their history. Call everyone stupid and Russia so smart.

      scanfish AimeeNJoy • 3 days ago
      But Russians ARE indeed smart, the reason they have produced the most world chess champions per capita, have the highest global percentage of citizens with degrees in sciences, and the reason they routed Al Nusra and ISIS terrorists in just 1 year, unlike the US which has been at it for 6 years with nothing to show for it, and yet the US has a military budget 10x that of Russia! Who is more like the 3 stooges here? I guess that would be you, the US and ISIS.

      gerryhiles scanfish • 3 days ago
      Not quite fair on the US, after all they’ve been SO busy funding, supplying and training ISIS that they haven’t had time to fight them as well. And they’ve blown SO much money using ISIS to try to get rid of Assad, that they’ve had nothing left over to also help keep him in power.
      You’ve been a tad unreasonable, it’s not easy being a World super-power, a mega terrorist organization (the CIA does not come cheap) and regime change specialist … that all costs about 10x more than most other countries combined, so not much is left over to be nice.

      flea baggs gerryhiles • 3 days ago
      Beautifully said. Thats also why we control the drug trade in Afganistan and Columbia from start to finish. CIA and SEAL/Special forces in 100 countries does not come cheap.

      gerryhiles flea baggs • 3 days ago
      Yes that too. It’s a gift that keeps on taking … a whole new way of spreading democracy. Previous empires, for all their faults, had the quaint idea that something should be built … you know: like aqueducts, roads, government buildings, railways, that sort of thing, and even viable institutions of governance.
      No one seriously imagined that this was selfless charity (maybe except missionaries), but the Empire of Chaos has the novel approach of just knocking things down, or blowing them up, then expecting gratitude, especially for murdering “dictators” prone to spending oil revenue – which surely belongs to Exxon – on health care, hospitals, schools, roads, railways, that sort of thing. Libyans, especially, should be grateful and love she who cackled, “We came. We saw. He died.”

    The human trafficking knocked me over with a feather. Are there really oligarchs bringing in children under the radar to American’s sexual perversions? So right now there are innocent children’s lives being destroyed by these criminal crony capitalists and somehow it’s being given a blind eye? If that’s true, it HAS to be brought to light. Screw the economy until these evil people are caught, convicted and hopefully executed. Like W.A. Criswell and Billy Graham said, God owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology is He doesn’t judge America, especially for something like this. As bad as the “ites” were in the land, throwing their children into the fires of Molech so that the parents would have better conveniences and prosperity, those children suffered for minutes, not years. This is appalling news if it’s true and it has to be our number one agenda. Thanks Greg for bringing this to light and sorry for my ignorance, having no idea this could be actually taking place.

    • eddiemd

      Absolutely agree.

      I wonder what Michael Jackson knew about and if he was murdered on purpose. The roots lie deep in Hollywood. It will be no wonder that Los Angeles will be utterly destroyed in the near future.

      • Frederick

        Eddie I always wondered about Michael Jacksons death The propanol stuff just didn’t seem possible What doctor would administer a anesthesia drug for sleep That’s just too insane to be true don’t you think?

    We may differ on what, when, why a collapse comes, but I do love your site. Great interview as always.

  20. Linda L.

    The far left are using Saul Alinsky’s tactics creating chaos on the President and his Administration, as they’ve done to the entire country. I wish that this interview with Ms. Fitts could be seen by Trump and his staff.

    • Linda L.

      Regarding Saul Alinsky tactics, Mr. Alinsky understood that to destroy America’s existing system, he needed to target the youth who REPRESENT THE FUTURE. Communist professors are in place all across the United States now at major universities with focused agendas of brain washing young students to stand up and revolt for their so called rights/hand outs/smash the Republic. Seeing what’s happening at these universities right now where any kind of right wing opinions are met with violence in rioting, we can see that these professors are quite successful. As history has demonstrated in the past, at the end of the road, ignorant students in these institutions just don’t realize that in the near future all their freedoms and rights will be GONE, they’ll most likely be microchipped, and life for them will be tragic if the propaganda campaigns aren’t countered with large scale education sharing the truth about the real history of communism, where it all eventually ends, and the need to respect the US Constitution/freedom.

    • Linda L.

      In addition to, I tell my daughter that when the time comes for her kids to obtain higher education, please don’t send them to these universities that I’m referring to. Rather assist them to seek a trade or go on to a specialty school so that they can actually learn to be productive, contributing humans, subsequently find jobs when they graduate too. I work and own a business in healthcare and see lots of young, rather confused college graduates who have no idea what they really want to do. Most are broke/in debt, can’t find jobs and love to use the term “social justice.” Yeah, this is the next generation.

    So So poor! Never has the world been engulfed in a crises of such magnitude. On one side the proponents of empire masterbating for one world government in rage over Brexit, Trump and all of the elections in Europe, whose results will be more egg in their face, it’s a roadblock, they lost their Queen. The Real threat to them is the BRICS, the end of the “special relationship” (USA w/ London) and the plum that will destroy “the one world government” for all time Glass Steagall, a redline between speculative investment banking and mom&pop traditional FDIC insured commercial banking.

    I love to listen to her insight. I thought the interview was too short. I’m sure you had your reasons but I felt I had more questions than answers on this one. Bring her back soon.

  24. Tad

    Creating a more human world will ultimately mean an emphasis on rule of law.

    Imagine the lawyers licking their chops when the first few politicos are indicted for pedophilia. They may continue criticizing Trump, but they’ll hear a ton of epithets from constituents.
    According to Alex Jones, Reince Priebus is skating on thin ice. Jones is reporting that Priebus is telling confirmed jobholders that Mr. Trump is no longer considering them for positions.

  25. Dave Causey

    Thank You Greg for the interview with CAF! Can’t get enough of this lady. Please, please have her on again soon!
    Trump is finding out about the deep state & how evil it is. Let’s hope & pray he doesn’t get bogged down chasing rabbits when he should be going after the true power centers of the elites. This will be the challenge of his life as well as a true turning point for the USA!
    Let’s hope main street America wakes up before it’s too late!

    • Paul ...

      The true power of the deep state derives from the cash they make selling Afghanistan heroin … Trump must burn down the poppy fields to launch an effective challenge to the deep state … just going after the Mexican drug gangs is not enough!!

    I know you are a bigwig and I am just a nobody so you can take this for what you think it’s worth but you and/or Catherine MUST write a book on the Culling Machine!

    It is huge and the people must know about it.

    Please keep at this and also at the Clinton Foundation scandal. The Clintons and their cronies must not escape justice!

    • Chip

      Yes, the focus on the “ethics violation” of one of Trump’s PR folks is telling. The Clinton’s had a GLOBAL ethics fraud going on for years and NEVER a word of it in the media! KAC says “buy her products” and now OH MY GOD! Ethics violation! The hypocrisy and the HUGE double standard is SO obvious for all to see… Chip

    What Ms Fitts described is an infernal society. Which is not just inhuman (the current one is anything just not human and just) but also there is no hope and chance for changing it for better from lower strata of society.
    My 2 cents
    Oracle 911

  29. Gadfly


    Now that Senator Sessions has been confirmed by the Senate, our new AG needs to get his team of U.S. Attorneys all in place. Next, go for the alleged ( by Kathy Fitts) Pedophile rings and their clients ( Congressmen and other pols) in the “Deep State”. As a matter of fact, its well known by residents ( one boyhood classmate of mine) in Placerville, CA that there is a HUGE Human Trafficking Trade operated by the Russian Mafia in the Sacramento, CA area. So, this is where Mr. Sessions should begin, as well as his own back yard of Washington D.C. Fertile ground in either instance, to be sure.

    Just reassign the 150 FBI Agents that “investigated” Hillary Clinton last year to now shift gears and go after the Human trafficking operations coast-to-coast. Now there is a real “Swamp” if I ever smelled one. Of course, even if they were to begin in earnest on Monday, it may take 2 more years to get to the Grand Jury stage and after that, begin arresting and charging the “smooth operators” at large. Then comes the jury trials. ( They won’t last long in the Federal prison system at the hands of other inmates). Saves the State the cost of incarceration and execution.

    I’m surprised and shocked that ex-Goldman Sacks alumni and former Bush Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson is advocating along with other former Republicans ( Schultz) that President Trump consider institution of a national “Carbon Tax”. What nerve !!

If she were leading a Women’s Equality Movement it would not take long for a Woman’s Superiority result to ensue! Before I relax and enjoy her wisdom I want to share my government/uselessness experience of this past Wednesday with you.

    I was in the State House in Trenton, NJ as a Committeeman along with my Mayor attending the League Of Municipalities Meeting. Affordable housing was one of the issues being discussed. I addressed the podium when we were able to and explained that about half the homes in our Township are between $150K and $250k in assessed value, and the State is pushing us to build hundreds of “affordable” houses at $250k because none of our existing homes count as “affordable” because the Township does not own them. We have spent many millions of dollars in our attempts to acquire Certification with the “Affordable” housing authority and will be forced to spend countless millions more in the building such homes should we ever be actually able to achieve certification. My question, posed to the Director of the agency in charge was “Why do you call this affordable?” He replied that he did not know how to answer my question. I responded that this was answer enough for me sir, thank you.

    In the afternoon session, the Mayor of East Rutherford, NJ told State Senator Tom Kean Jr. and Senate President Sweeny that he remembered first starting to work on this affordable housing issue when Senator Kean’s father was elected to his first term as governor, in 1982 and went on to say that in the time from then till now the government had made ABSOLUTELY NO PROGRESS on the issue whatsoever. I guess there is some solace to be taken from the fact that they at least admit to the disgrace, eh? The sad part is than nobody cares, nobody complains, and nobody will ever step in to make it right. It can only fail and collapse IMHO. Oh well, at least I got them talking, eh?

    Great interview,

    Most Impotant advice is do as KF said: have more nut and bolt debates about important issues. If we could get this going and made popular, positive reforms could start. This is the heart of any potential change. We are in an information war and winning this war is crucial to secure our humanity and freedom. I applaud CNN for the debate format. Everyone must push for this incessantly.

    Sadly for the nation, it matters no longer who sits in the White House, nor any other position within any portion of the government. The corruption runs so deep that it infects every single department and agency within Washington D.C..

    The clearest picture as to what this corrupted and criminal Oligarchy has morphed into, is the undeniable fact that the very people responsible for ALL the Treason and Criminal Acts against not only a nation of people but War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity…….ARE NEVER ARRESTED and NEVER PROSECUTED!

    Even Trump hasn’t arrested a soul. No indictments nor did he do as he said and prosecute Satan, I mean Hillary Clinton. Both the same.

    He put a weak no backbone hasn’t prosecuted one single banker or Congress Pirate, Jeff Sessions as Attorney General. He, also, hasn’t arrested a soul. They knew better than to make Trey Gowdy Attorney General for they knew he would of had Hillary in handcuffs 5 minutes after his confirmation.

    Love C.A.F. but then again she’s one of them by all measurements.
    Very discouraged to see the same old song and dance.

    America, the land of corruption and crime where hard work, savings and freedom are discouraged and sometimes even prosecuted. Our forefathers would have shot them all a long time ago! ( I’m in no way inciting any violence nor harm). Just noting what the founders and creators of this nation would have done.

    Trump is also a lackey and a tool. Until he has Pelosi, Reid, McCain, Cheney, Rumsfeld, ALL the Bush’s, Clinton’s (Including Chelsea & her husband), Obama, Dimon, E. DeRothschild and his gang, Soros, Biden, or any other of the treasonous and criminal Congress arrested and prosecuted for treason and being traitors to this nation, then and only then will I believe for a second that any President is anything more than a Figure Head.

    Where are the arrests? Another 4 + years of pure corruption white washed as representation. But, representation for who?

        ‘More or less agree with george. Why doesn’t trump start telling some truths. He is letting this whole travel ban sensationalism go on unhindered. Why doesn’t he come oit and remind everyone that he is not the first. Why doesn’t he mention the list is the same as obama’s lkst of dengerous countries. Why hasn’t he mentioned the market is a bubble since the campaign- now he more or less takes credit….

        • Paul Anthony

          Concerned American Dad –

          Trump has reminded the people he is not the first regarding his immigration executive order and the countries are same as what Obama had picked – he explained that immediately after the Judge in Seattle halted his EO. Plus I agree with Greg. The President has only been in office 3 weeks and he’s done a ton all ready. Plus he’s being attached harder as a new President than any of the President in HISTORY. Give him some time. He’s working against a lot of people who are literally standing right in front of him. Pray for our President. It’s the best thing we can do. The election was the election. Now the real battles start! It’s also obvious they are in PANIC. Why else would Obama be in a bunker mere miles away from the White House???? ….. He doesn’t want to go to jail probably …. that’s called DESPERATE… and the people who support these desperate losers walk around with Vagina costumes. That’s all they got….. check it out New York Post http://nypost.com/2017/02/11/how-obama-is-scheming-to-sabotage-trumps-presidency/

    All Trump has to do is deport all the Mexicans back to Mexico and everyone will be happy. I think he will also get reelected for sure on that one issue. Even Ann Coulter in her book “In Trump We Trust” said that Trump can perform abortion in the White House as long as he deports the illegals.
    I have my bags ready to go

    • Eric

      Trump said ILLEGAL. What part of that don’t you understand ? If you’re illegal save us some money and go now. If you want to live here and play by our rules go thru the proper channels.
      Pretty sure Mexico doesn’t let anyone south of your border in illegally.

      • Charles H

        Nope. Twenty year prison sentence for Illegal Entry. Plus – you cannot work in Mexico if you are not Mexican – by LAW. They usually just throw people out, or give the ultimatum and they leave.

        • Juan J Cervantes-Cardenas

          I do understand “illegal is illegal.” What I do not understand is “legal is illegal.” One just has to do is look at Trump’s executive order that also affected legal. green card holders who were also deported without due process. I am talking about the Syrian Asali family whose citizen family members voted for Trump. These guys did it the right way and they were still shown the door.

        • Juan J Cervantes-Cardenas

          From my travels in Mexico many Central Americans just stay in Oaxaca to work in the fields. They get paid cash and then they go home. As in the USA the law is not uniformly enforced.
          There is a huge colony of Salvadorans in Baja California.

          • Macray

            Juan, I hope you don’t mind be calling you by your first name : ))) , I think your the first Mexican Illegal that is predicting that President Trump will win re-election in 2020. You know that you are not permitted to vote in the US as an illegal. If you have voted as such, keep it quiet as you can be locked away for this crime.
            Juan, I have to ask, since you are a pretty sophisticated person,
            Is NAFTA now dead?

            • Juan J Cervantes-Cardenas

              I am not an illegal. I know that non-citizens can’t vote.
              NAFTA as we know it is dead. This is not 1945 when the USA was the sole super-power and could push Mexico around. We live in a multi-polar world. Mexico will suffer in the beginning because they will receive a lot of its people back. The Mexican government will be forced to stop being so corrupt and to get its act together or face a revolution. It will seek out other trading partners like the Chinese, the Germans, and other South American countries. The Chinese car maker JAC announced the opening of a new car factory there. The Secretary of Agriculture announced a trade deal where the Russians will import a lot more Mexican beef. Mexico will start to buy more agricultural products from Brazil and Argentina. Once NAFTA is gone the repatriated farmer will not have to compete with duty free corn from IOWA and thus not have to travel north illegally.
              I tell my Mexican relatives that Trump is the greatest thing to happen to the country since the invention of the tamale. He will united the country, against him, but he will accomplish what 200 years of history have not.
              What I am afraid of is that leftist Manuel Lopez-Obrador will win the presidential elections in 2018. Lopez-Obrador is a douche bag and is very anti-American. Hate to see a Chinese naval base in Manzanillo, Mexico in the future.

              • Greg Hunter

                If you are in this coun try illegally you are in fact an Illegal alien according to the IRS: “Illegal Alien
                Also known as an “Undocumented Alien,” is an alien who has entered the United States illegally and is deportable if apprehended, or an alien who entered the United States legally but who has fallen “out of status” and is deportable.” https://www.irs.gov/individuals/international-taxpayers/immigration-terms-and-definitions-involving-aliens

                And it you think China will treat Mexicans better than Americans, than you have got a RUDE AWAKENING coming.

                • Juan Cervantes

                  I am not here illegally Greg. The only thing I said is that I have my packs ready to go if Mr. Trump deports me. Me a legal immigrant. Who knows what that man will do. I have already given the incident of the Asali family.
                  As to the Chinese, they will be in Mexico to invest along with other strong nations like Germany, Russia, Japan, South Korea etc. Gerald Celente has many times given the example of China building infrastructure in Africa instead of sticking CentCom, the CIA, or launching a military operation. The USA did not get its way in Egypt and thus CIAbacked coup happen (the Arab Spring) and Libya was attacked. Like I told you Greg, this is not 1945 where the USA was the sole super power in the world.
                  Ask Gerald Celente to compare US diplomacy and Chinese diplomacy in Africa and the Middle East. He was the one who alerted me to that phenomenon.

                  • Greg Hunter

                    If you are not in the U.S. illegally stop whining. You have nothing to worry about.

            How do you know I am an illegal alien? Just because of my name? You must be such a sleuth. Do not let the fact that my name is as common as say- John Smith.
            Eva Langoria is 7th generation Tejana. Her family came to Texas in the the 18th century. You know that time when Texas was not part of the USA but part of Spain. I hope you do not deport her either. But from your post I have my doubts.

      Juan Cervantes,
      Trump is working on separating those who committed non-violent felony from those who committed violent felonies. Personally, I have no problem with those who come here to work using bogus S.S. However, if they were arrested driving using bogus driver license, they should be deported.
      I’m sure you will get your working paper once the border is secured.

      • Juan J Cervantes-Cardenas

        Not gone yet. But will let you know when I am.

      • Juan J Cervantes-Cardenas

        I agree with you. All I am saying is that I.C.E. MUST deport people in a human, Christian way. Let us not devolve into 1930s Germany. Yes the illegals broke the law and that action should have a consequence.
        But also let us look a little closer at those who have been here many years, are not a burden to the government, and actually contribute. Maybe they can be given some legal status.

        • Greg Hunter

          It is also Christian to not break the law. All illegal aliens broke the law, and many receive benefits from hard working American taxpayers. I cannot illegally enter Mexico. I would be thrown in prison for 2 years. Also, I sure as heck would not be allowed to receive benefits from Mexican taxpayers.

          • Juan Cervantes

            Greg, Mexico does not imprison people but just deports them. It is so much cheaper to that than to imprison millions.As to migrants, not so long ago the Mexican government provided an amnesty where thousands of Central Americans were made legal. I gave you the examples of the Salvadorans who live in Baja California. Mexico is doing the dirty work of the USA deporting the Central Americans before you have to do it yourself.
            As to Christianity, Jesus Christ was an immigrant who fled to Egypt. What is more Christian: to emigrate to find a job to feed your family or stay home and watch them die? Let me put some scripture for you: Leviticus 19:33-34 “When a stranger soujorns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.”
            No where in my posts did I advocate open borders. All I wished is that the US deport those people in a humane way.
            I am surprised Greg that you are so against illegal immigration. The West was won through illegal immigration from first Europe and then the Eastern seaboard. The British and Mexicans were defeated in war, and the Spanish and French bought out. But what about the American Indians? Like say, the Cherokees who were removed from their lands in the Trail of Tears. Or say Mexican Texas where 80 % of the defenders of the Alamo were illegals from the South. You have had 300 plus treaties with the Indians of which the USA broke each one.
            Mexico has 2 million Americans living there. A lot are retirees and some are actually illegal aliens. But they do not get hunted down and harrassed but reminded to renew their visa.https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2014/11/21/mexico-has-its-own-immigration-problem-american-retirees/?utm_term=.1712560e5112
            Your illegals live in Chapala, Ajijic, and San Miguel Allende. They are good people and I enjoy seeing them around when I go to Mexico on business.
            The USA has the right to defend its borders. I never went against that. But stop pointing the finger when you are not innocent yourself.

            • Greg Hunter

              The people in this WaPo (Fake News) article are not in Mexico illegally and do not get social benefits. They bring money to Mexico. This is 100% different that the illegal immigration from Mexico. By the way, it is a felony to enter Mexico illegally, punishable by up to 2 years in prison.

  38. William Betts

    There is one thing the people in this country must understand that they have a monetary system run by the unconstitutional Federal Reserve System. There are no free markets in America today. Everything is rigged. The Fed manages everything, and it is doing a terrible job. If Trump is to save this country, he has to disband the illegal Fed system. See Constitution Art 1 section 8. The banking system has to be reigned in – fractional reserve banking must be stopped. It is immoral. The Treasury must issue our money debt free as US Dollars not Federal Reserve notes. Debt free money can be issued to get the infrastructure going. Initially this is going to take about a trillion dollars, but this is debt free money. Once the FED is flushed done the toilet, and our money is issued by the Treasury we can see about paying down the 20 trillion debt we owe and then start trying to do something about the other 150 trillion we owe. It should be noted here that JFK tried to issue debt free money by Executive Order June 1963 – that got him killed. Trump is aware of this. The deep state must be run out of this country or jailed. If this is not done this year, Trump will not save this country let alone make it great again…. Betts

      There is so much profit generated from bone marrow, blood, and other tissues. Catherine Austin-Fitts alluded to these people while remaining focused on the very important issues in this video. The George Webb youtube-based open investigation that is available online and is being updated each day is stunning in its depth. He originally was asking who killed Monica Petersen but then began asking where is Eric Braverman. These preliminary investigations led him quickly into a labrynth of state participation in gun and drug running, sex trafficking, and human trafficking for organ harvesting that is shocking in its breadth and depravity. His investigation is so cutting that he is now doing proof of life videos referencing the day’s news as evidence of his continuing safety. The stakes for the globalists and pedophiles are so high … they will stop at nothing to protect themselves and their profits. And meanwhile humans that find themselves trapped in this system have no way out. Truth is stranger than fiction and this story reaffirms this in spades. Thanks Greg for Bringing Catherine on again. She is so filled with refreshing insight.

    DETROIT (AP) — U.S. Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota says Michigan’s Upper Peninsula could be in the wrong hands.
    The 59-year-old former “Saturday Night Live” writer and actor returned to comic form for a while Saturday during an otherwise policy focused address to the Michigan Democratic Party’s Annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in Detroit.
    On a lighter note, the Detroit Free Press quotes Franken as saying the difference between Minnesota and Michigan is the Upper Peninsula, which he says is “ridiculous.”

    Love me some Fitts (and hope she’s on again soon!) but Catherine dead-wrong on H1B immigrants being the “Best and the Brightest.” Some may be, but the vast majority are the “Just Good Enough and Much Cheaper,” nothing less – only immigrants from Southern Asia are willing to work for 20k a year, driving down wages for skilled American I.T. workers who are REQUIRED by most of these companies to lever up with debt to attain at least a Bachelors (the minimum for most corporations).

    If Trump can do nothing else, I hope he can close this egregious loophole as well as accomplishing some REAL tax reform. Though I have severe reservations about him accomplishing much, given goons like Rex Tillerson, close friend of kid-diddler Dennis Hastert being in his midst, in addition to the Mar-a-Lago swamp being filled with Iran-Contra runaways like Adnan Khashoggi.

    John Doe, your analysis is right on the mark. FAITH in Jesus Christ is what made this a great country. The number of “believers” has decreased and that is the problem.

    • Charles H

      True faith in God tasks us to a focus, away from ourselves and selfishness, to true benevolence, which transcends man. Work, responsibility, and sacrifice are the only basis of getting ahead – a thing our natures don’t start with, unless we had parents who showed the example.
      It’s funny how people think they will lose everything to enjoy; when by moderation and self-discipline: so much more is gained. To be valuable, something must be practical: and Christianity is just that.

It is true that ‘to bollocks something up’ is to make a mess of something but the word ‘bollocks’ means balls, i.e. testicles, so it isn’t a term used in ‘polite society’ – or rather, it probably is used in ‘polite society’ but in private. Nevertheless, CAF alluding to the ‘elites’ as the Evil Empire is spot on. I do not know much about President Trump but I do know that he could show his ‘sincerity’, to put it like that, by clearing out the Augean Stables (http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/Herakles/stables.html) of the COMEX gold and silver markets. That would free up so much ‘honestly owned’ capital (of honest money – gold and silver) that all his good works could be accomplished within his allotted term of 4 (or perhaps 8?) years.

    That would be an excellent start!

    When Trump was running, he said the market was fixed. It appears to be even more fixed since he took the oval office. The market has hit record highs for absolutely no reason. Trump is playing the game. he’s not going to save the average guy. He’s selling out and the proof is in the market rally. The more things change the more they remain the same.

    Greg, thank you for another interview. Catherine is savvy. She packed a lot into 22 minutes.

    She quantifies the enemies of Trump (and the Republic). I have believed that there is no political solution and now I am convinced. The Deep State (http://www.oftwominds.com/photos2015/Deep-State5-15.gif) will continue to stonewall Trump, or worse. Pray for his safety and for that of his love ones. If they force Trump into a corner, his strongest allies will probably be the military and civilians who voted for him. I respect the opinions of CAF and others with careers in politics. But like the saying goes, ‘When your only tool is a hammer, you think of all your problems as nails’.

    I may live in Montana, but contrary to the fake MSM, we are NOT all anarchists. I believe God ordained governments, but only those “who are not a terror to good works, but to evil” (Romans 13:3). The Deep State is evil. I can visualize a conflict of epic proportion.

    Jeffrey Epstein’s Satanic Temple.
    Just for grins take a dollar bill out and examine it with a magnifying glass. On the topside where George Washington’s picture is there is a frame around it. In the upper right hand corner of the framed in section where there is a curve which has an owl head in it. The mint uses an owl head to discourage counter fitters because it cannot be duplicated. Interesting that they use an owl in the bohemian grove ceremony, and that there’s one on top of Jeffrey Epstein’s Satanic temple? Symbols have meaning.

    1.) MSNBC going ballistic over fake news allegations, even interviewed “Dickless” David Gregory about it.

    2.) Mario Cuomo said said accusing reporters of fake news is like calling them the N-word…I kid you not. He was very angry.

    3.) Washington Post reported fake news allegations have backfired.

    You were right, they are going ballistic over this fake news accusations, it must be affecting their bottom line….

    • Charles H

      They shoot themselves in the foot, by lying, misleading, and serving as propaganda organs; and when other tell the truth – the truth-tellers are made to be the villains. Instead of going from bad to worse – I think they have upped the game by going from bad to evil. Or is it from bad, to doubled-down on bad? Wherever on the line they are: they’re going in the wrong direction!

    Still don’t think banks can access your money? “Right of Set Off says they can.

    In the past few months others on this site have posted that your money is safe in a bank. Is it? In my state a notice of default is issued within 60 says of nonpayment. What do you think they will do should we have an economic collapse and you can’t make your payments? In my state they will put you on the curb or arrest you as an unlawful detainer after 60 days. My advice? If you are carrying a loan have a backup plan. Its not uncommon for families to lean on each other during hard times. During the depression my grandfather had a sister and brother in law move in with him until they could get on their feet. An empty belly and an aching body has a way of overriding pride. I’m not trying to scare you, but you’d better have a plan….and soon.

    • JMiller

      “others on this site have posted that your money is safe in a bank”

      Like who? I know of no one on here that said that you money is safe in the bank. Your money is safe no where. Not even in gold and silver.

    • Galaxy 500

      This is in the UK, Inhave not seen that in a US bank contract but seeing how the person owed the bank money on either credit cards are a home loan and didn’t pay, I don’t see her as a victim.

      “This could happen if you miss loan or credit card payments and you also have a current or savings account with the bank. A bank can, under certain conditions, then access your account to claim the money you owe.”

      • JMiller

        Galaxy 500,

        Also this article is 6 years old. So it sure is not a common occurrence since you never even heard of this kind of thing happening over the years. I doubt if it ever happened in the U.S., certainly not like what happened to that woman.

    Observation on a beautiful day in Seattle.

    Rode my bicycle in Kent today (2 0 miles south of Seattle) I worked there 30 years ago as a machinist- at that time it was thriving and vibrant- the future. Not so much today. For every 100 trailers at the bay door had maybe one tractor to pull it. Wife and I rode river trail at backside of many factories and one place was gigantic. It wasn’t until return on street that I saw the Amazon sign. It is frightening . Change is good. Its the speed and the diversity of industry that Amazon is replacing- is whatever but not good. Vibrant is a good word and it never came to mind today.

    Had to add this new heads up from Clif High about how to combat the algos being used to target alt news sites by google , facebook and such!

  71. Walter Baumgarten

    Wow, Greg, just WOW! Culling Machine where the system absorbs the best and the brightest and Disaster Capitalism where the system plays on humanitarian feelings of the masses to connive them into giving more than they can afford to “alleviate” suffering? This are tactics first devised by the early Vatican and utilized well enough to become the richest entity in the World. And I do not say this to degrade any religion, only the institutions created by man. It is said that though Jesus had infinite patience for individuals, He had NO patience for institutions. Yes Catherine, indeed, you have seen the light and uncovered the plan for they are all working the same old same old. If it works, stick with it. And when you consider Wall Street, Washington DC, Hollywood, and Silicone Valley and all of the money and power they have accumulated and how much each works with the other towards the promotion of all, it becomes clear to see that following the money leads to the root of the problem. Ms. Fitts is damned near clairvoyant in her abilities to see what is and what is not. She has even pointed out the promotion of the move towards inhumanity and the vast practice of pedophilia and degradation of children within the system which is a huge clue as to who is all behind this movement. If you would like a direction to look for answers to this Greg, I suggest you research the Catholic Church and its present difficulties in gathering sufficient assets to deal with the current requirements for exorcism and the extent to which the need is currently growing. Be careful though, it is not pretty. We are all under attack my friend and only the Lord God the Creator can save any of us through the works of His Son. Keep the Faith my friend and keep up the good work. Praise God.

    Sanctuary City’s

    Some of you will recall Californians Prop 187 back in back in 94. It passed!

    California Proposition 187 (also known as the Save Our State (SOS) initiative) was a 1994 ballot initiative to establish a state-run citizenship screening system and prohibit illegal aliens from using non-emergency health care, public education, and other services in the State of California. Voters passed the proposed law at a referendum in November 1994

    The People of California find and declare as follows:
    That they have suffered and are suffering economic hardship caused by the presence of illegal immigrants in this state. That they have suffered and are suffering personal injury and damage caused by the criminal conduct of illegal immigrants in this state. That they have a right to the protection of their government from any person or persons entering this country unlawfully.


    Then the Bill Clinton/ Janet Reno department of justice stepped in and voided the public vote.
    Calming it violated U.S. Immigration law which only the federal government had standing.
    If this was the case in 94 why would it not apply now? How can city’s proclaim they are a “Sanctuary
    City” with out the fed having standing to force them into compliance today?

    On another note

     Do you remember the big story of Trumps heated phone conversation
    with the prime minster of Australia
     that was leaked by the press. Obama made a deal with the PM that the
    US would take 10,000 refugees
     {Muslims} after the November elections. Leaving Trump a nice surprise!
    Well as Paul Harvey used to say “Now For The Rest Of The Story”

     Any wonder why the prime minster was in a hurry to dump off the

     those 2 islands off their coast??????

      This isn’t that hard to figure out.

  73. Mike R

    This week seems to be the worst out of every week of the Trump admin. I’m a voter and supporter of Trump, more because the alternative was even worse to imagine. However, his administration does seem to be a freaking mess, and getting worse by the day. It seems like everyone is railing on every decision, every tweet, and he has insubordination going on throughout the entire admin, including especially with congress people who are out to destroy him on both sides. Now that Flynn has resigned, and Preibus and Miller are on the hot seat, the daily news stream goes from bad to worse. Clearly he can’t clean house fast enough, but also, he hasn’t hired people with integrity or clean backgrounds. (i know, impossible to find these days- everyone has dirt on them somewhere). If he doesn’t get things under control post haste, with his own staff, then him running hard and fast to change things is just going to blow up in his face, and turn even his staunchist supporters against him. JMHO.

    • David

      Mike, I agree with you. Trump fatigue is setting in quickly. They are committing unforced errors… one right after the other. Trump has to gain control.

  74. Tommy

    Wow, CAF starts off by saying Trump’s enemies would take out his loyal lieutenants and less than 24 hours after your interview with her Gen. Kelly is gone. I get the feeling that blood is now in the water and the sharks will be on a feeding frenzy. Already the Republicans are the ones leading the charge in calling for an investigation. Only Republicans eat their own. I really appreciate that you have on here. She is so very interesting and always spot on. Thanks Greg and Catherine for a great interview.

  75. Crugar Tuttle

    Well Greg – that prediction didn’t take long – just watched Kathryn yesterday and boom Mike Flynn gone…

  76. Galaxy 500

    This is how intelligent the Dems are:

    Two Russian pranksters have called US Congresswoman Maxine Waters posing as the Ukrainian PM seeking reassurances in the wake of Moscow’s most recent “invasions” across the globe and impudent “hacking” of presidential elections in a fictitious country. […]

    The pranksters then proceeded to exploit the seriously lacking geography knowledge of Congresswoman Waters, who had recently claimed that Russia was “advancing in Korea.”

    Speaking about the most recent “development” in Ukraine, the duo claimed that “Putin’s regular army” had “simultaneously occupied” both Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine and Lvov, which is in the West. In addition, the pranksters said that Russia had “invaded Gabon” to support President Ondimba.

    As a final blow, the pranksters claimed that Moscow had “hacked the election system” in a fictitious country of Limpopo, completely reversing the outcome and installing their puppet Ai Bolit as a president. Since the situation there has become even “worse than in the US,” the ousted president of Limpopo was considering fleeing to Ukraine, they said.

  77. Don

    Dear Greg, I believe Mrs. Fitts is right in her opinion. Those who are fighting against him, the radical left, who are bought by the likes of Soros, are threatened in a great way. Its been corporate big money and its influence controlling the political policies so long, that the average American had been left out. The globalist deep pockets have done nothing, nor will do anything that actually improves our society. The politicians have gorged themselves fat, through the endless supply of money given by these individuals who promote the global government agenda. Trump, has exposed both this and the crooked MSM as two birds in the same bush, full of corruption and greed. In my opinion, until Trump is able to break the controlling arms of the federal reserve and big banks, along with dealing with Washington corruption, the financing needed for meaningful change will be withheld. I had a policeman wheeled in beside me and confront me with littering the other day, as I unconsciencely cast a 1/2 of a top of the foiled cover of a cigarette pack out a window. I wasn’t thinking when I did it, and was unaware as he immediately accused me of getting some sort of kick out of doing so. I responded by asking what in the world he was talking about. He accused me again, and said he saw me. I immediately searched my memory and the only thing I could remember was I’d handed two sacks of Ice to my son in the boat, as we were going fishing. So I responded by saying he was wrong. He said he’d seen me. So I ask, officer what did you see me do, trying to remember, he responded, you throughout of your truck a piece of trash. Then it struck me, I had opened a pack of cigerettes and had through the small piece od paper out the window. So, I said I remember, and that he was right, and that I wasn’t thinking at the time. He immediately told me how it showed disrespect, and I said I was aware I broke the law, and promised to try to do better. He told me he wanted me to try to pick it up, and also to pickup another sack that another person had left on the scene, which I did. My thoughts were, how is it that to commoners laws are strickly enforced, while so disregarded by those who make them and break them all the time. I was guilty of littering, and all he had to say is I saw you break the littering laws, and ask me to pick it up, but instead, he took the occasion to lecture me somewhat about mutual respect. Which I already believed in. Point being, Washington, were our laws are made, only apply to us, and not to those of grater statis.

  78. Juan Cervantes

    Sorry Greg but I am not whining. I live in a reality of being threatened with having ICE called on me for deportation by people like you and your readers because of my name. It is even getting worse ever since Trump won. I am glad none of this has happened to you but it has happened to me and others I know. If you want to keep imagining that it does not exist then there is nothing I can do.

      That is totally false. You are NOT going to be “deported” if you are (really) legally in the U.S. Please go to the very fake news networks to tell those kind of lies.

    Absolutely Spot on. I concur . Thank you for the Truth. God Bless you. I personally don’t care for our president mainly for the reason of the Violations of U.S.Government Treaties in North Dakota for the Oil Access Pipe Line. But if God is working his plans through him then I don’t have anything to say there, I do like you. I Love hearing honest people speak Truth.
