U.S. Government Criminal Enterprise – Catherine Austin Fitts

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

Financial expert and investment advisor Catherine Austin Fitts says the U.S. Government runs on massive criminal activity. Fitts explains, “The U.S. economy is deeply dependent on criminal cash flows.  We’re the global leader in money laundering.  If we stopped doing that, the economy would be in for a major, major change. . . . The preference for most Americans is to keep that system going as long as it works for them.  So, it you are a public official, you are between a rock and a hard place.  If you press the red button and stop the illegal cash flows, then all hell breaks loose. . . . The U.S. Government has been run as a criminal enterprise, and I have documented and proved that on multiple occasions.  The swamp that exists in Washington is from sea to shining sea.  It’s not just in Washington.  It’s in every county and every state house in the country.  If we are going to change and clean ourselves of enormous financial dependencies on criminal activities, we are talking about a very big change, and it’s not just in Washington.”

So, in the big picture, where are we now? Why are so many top people in politics and Hollywood being taken down?  Fitts says, “These people are expensive.  This is a fundamental re-engineering. . . . We are watching purges, but these purges are knocking out the expensive people, people we no longer need from the financial coup d’état period, and you are bringing in a new wave of people or you are just downsizing.  So, we see sex purges in Hollywood and in various forms of media and entertainment. . . . You have various purges going on because the reality is the world needs to move on.  This money needs to be reinvested, and you can’t afford a bunch of egotistical maniacs who were good at stealing money.  You can’t use them to build the future, and you can’t afford them. . . . There is a huge amount of money that is floating around in fixed income and derivative markets, and now you’ve got to bring it down into the hard economy and hard assets.  How do you do that?  You need to switch the caliber of the people for management and reinvestment of the money.  You have to do it in a way that doesn’t kick off hyperinflation.”

So, what are the rich doing with their money?   Fitts says, “Gold is what it has always been and that is a real store of value.  I am a gold girl.  If you look at the smart money and central banks around the world . . . the smart money is buying gold, and the smart money is buying land.  If you read the land report, that’s the top holders of land in the United States.  Their holdings have doubled since 2008.  I see tremendous amounts of money moving into hard assets.”

Catherine Austin Fitts, who was also an Assistant Housing Secretary in the first Bush Administration, talks about the Mueller/Trump investigation that she says is twisting in the wind and also the gun control and why Americans need firearms now more than ever. Fitts also says a large market correction will probably happen in 2018.

    Mr. Hunter: Thanks. That was fun!

      Greg – Arguing with an independent commentator was tiring. Talking over such a respected personality was rude. You can take direct ownership of your share investments in that company and achieve dividend returns i.e. that is an investment!!

      • Greg Hunter

        You are entitled to your opinion, but my point was (and still is) there are zero honest markets. This is a fact and it is not debatable. That means, there are no real investments because there are no real markets with real price discovery. You are trading, gambling and playing the intervention and manipulation by central bankers. That said, you are welcome to call it what you want. I, am likewise, able to call it what it really is on my totally free website”!!!”

    Most of my family and friends are watching ‘crap’’ TV of a Sunday night, which I find acutely demented. I’m having my Sunday bath and tuning into USAWD, they may laugh at me but I find the honesty and transparency of this show relaxing.

    I feel refreshed and able to tackle the working week! Thanks Greg

    Oh, 60 Minutes Australia are broadcasting a ‘special’ on North Korea, the drums are beating WAR.

  3. Robert

    Wow, what an excellent interview. Especially about what’s behind this bitcoin craze. Makes sense. Love CAF…wish she was my neighbor or if I were younger, my favorite aunt.

    Great interview! Jim willie made the astute point that the American government and economies reliance on illegal cash flows is an insurmountable barrier towards a cashless society. Tough questions well handled by Austin Fitts. Still would like her to answer how the debt crisis will resolve itself. Stock prices and debt levels are highly correlated so if we are in the middle of a long-term bull market for stocks she must be predicting debt levels to go much higher.

    • Chip

      Have you heard ANYONE in government talking about making the government smaller? Yes debt levels will be going much higher, you can bank on that… Chip

    Hi Greg, Great interview with Catherine. Good to hear some robust debate toward the end – so rare to hear a difference of opinion debated with such vigour without one or other party being ‘triggered’ and resorting to personal insult and ultimately physical assault! Catherine is one smart and BRAVE lady. If only she and her ilk could get airtime on the MSM (no chance) the world could start to heal itself.

    • Diane

      So true Andrew.

    It is clear to me now that the situation in the US is irredeemable and a reckoning will be severe. It is also clear to me from my investigations that even the prepared could not survive if there was a 80% population reduction resulting from a deep global crisis. This next year rather than trying to raise Americans awareness of the true situation and the causes in the hopes of changing the outcome for people everywhere I will be working towards isolating the US internationally by collaborating with the like minded in other countries. I will protest at the US embassy and boycott American goods. Aside from all of the other reprehensible buggery committed around the world in the name of the US over the years which people might take exception to this intractable financial criminality and its extent has become a threat to all humanity. This cannot be excused, ignored or accommodated. I would much rather side with the Russians and Chinese despite our differences than allow bad things happen locally because Americans won’t deal with their issues. The US must address its serious economic problems constructively or find itself
