I'm trying to commit this to memory. It's that good.

I watched this hour presentation last night, and it is phenomenal. Thank you Alex Jones and Daily Paul.

Seriously. It is really something you should take in.

He's the man.

Another bump

In honor of another interview posted today by DJP333.


He's the man.

October 19, 2006, Ms. Fitts was on...

Jefferson Public Radio in Ashland Oregon. She talked about her job as HUD undersecretary in Bush 41's administration. She worked under then HUD secretary Jack Kemp who would tell her to stop some "horrible corruption" and then tell her subordinates to make sure she "fails". She said "HUD is being run as a criminal enterprise" and there is "no government", only defense contractors and large banks who run a government mechanism.

Fitts cited a Justice Dept. official who said "500 billion to a Trillion dollars" is laundered through the NYSE every year, and the EU was taking legal action against RJR and KKR for laundering money for Russian mafia and South American drug cartels. Meanwhile, the US Justice Department takes no action to stop the crime. Believe it or not, Fitts agreed nothing could be done because the US is financially dependent on organized crime. At that point I called the radio show and accused her of providing cover for the criminals. In my opinion, anyone who says we can't do anything about the criminals running our country, is one of the criminals.

Great interview. However,

I just wish she would've mentioned the source of this corruption in regard to our monetary system. That being the Federal Reserve. Until this monopoly on money creation is done away with, there is no incentive for big banks, big business, and big government to operate any differently. There is no room for free market principles to improve our economy until the Fed gets out of the way. Until that happens, free enterprise will continue to suffer.

I'm preaching to the choir, I know. I just wish she would've mentioned this.

she did, in a way.

at about 22min. she speaks of the root of the problem being the central bank, backed up by the military.


well, that was an hour long

well, that was an hour long truth bomb.

You are so right!

Brilliant, timely and simple... stop running all your transactions through a NY bank. Period. reminds me of how Dodd Frank is a perpetual bailout - for the banks. people! U know what to do!

I really wouldn't mind

if this stayed at the top of the front page forever.

Only graduates of progressives schools will blame

banks and corporations for the mess. I will give you just a simple example - Assume the government agrees to stop printing and borrowing money. A free USA consumer usually tries to get maximum out of his money and will likely buy many foreign made products. If no new money is artificially pumped into the system, the dollar value at home should rise (since USA dollar can be used aboad as reserve or oil money.) In a free economy, that should lead to dropping in domestic consumer prices and dropping in salaries (although the purchasing power of workers will be the same.) But such a scenario does not sit well with the public, trade unions, any long-term lending and mortgaging plans.

Market and free competition is exactly what affirmative-action recipients (75% of population if you count women and gays) do not want.

Thanks for the video

Great video. This is a must see.

That is why I invest in big apartments for Cash Flow

She is right about decentralization. But its about networking and growing "your investment team" locally so that you are big enough to capitalize on what we all know is coming (world debt crises).

So, Myself and a few other RP patriots have joined together into an LLC. We first learned what companies to use to switch our 401ks over to "self directed IRAs" and then we began our quest for positive cash flow. We invested our retirement funds into apt buildings that we can see and touch and have professionally managed for us. So now, 4 times a Month, usually on a Monday, we get together at Mimis Cafe and go over our Property Manager Investor Reports. We spend Monday basically, managing the property manager. One of the best policies we have is making sure our tenants all pay their rent via direct deposit.

And since we are all RP Patriots, we know that come hard times via the debt criss us default banking collapse, our units will be fully leased. Our discussions lately have been about ideas on how to take payment when that event occurs.

But we have been lucky. We caught lots of markets at the bottom in 2010. Some buildings that we invested in are getting 8%, and 9% and 10%, and one is getting 12% on our money each month. It all depending which apt building we are talking about. What we really like is that the buildings are all appreciating. Phoenix is up 17% and that is very conservative because I have seen other MLS sources saying its much higher. Nevertheless, we patriots expect that when we sell our IRR will be over 36%. Buying and selling is all about timing... so you can imagine our wonderful Monday investor club meetings.

So as she says, invest locally. I second that. But also make sure its the right local market. There are DYING Cities out there. But there are growing ones too. Right now there are 16 sub city markets that are showing great returns and if you buy right, you will be ready for any major down turn.

Like Doug Casey says, "most libertarians are as poor as church mice", but we like to say in reply to Doug, "It doesn't have to be that way. When like-minded patriots come together, our investment power grows exponentially. Most of all, we can capitalize on the market knowledge we all share".

What market?

Just curious, CA?

Right on!

I appreciate your perspective!

What would the Founders do?

Brilliant analysis!

Time well spent watching.

I just shared it with 500 of my closest friends on Facebook.

She Sounds Like A Localist. She could have written several..

..chapters of "Localism, a Philosophy of Government". Not saying she did, but in her grasp of the threat of the centralization of power in several forms, it sounds like she "gets it" completely. Even the mention of the 3100 counties instead of one corrupt city, the threat of corporations, I mean, it was exciting.

Localism is for people who can still sleep at night even though somebody they don't know in a city they have never been is doing things differently. ("Localism, A Philosophy of Government" on Amazon for Kindle or Barnes and Noble ebook websites)

I'm still reading. Good stuff

Her "county-driven" software that she created...

to show each County in the USA how their money was sent to and received from the Federal government meant that she had to research all of those Counties.

Her research has become our benefit of knowledge. You make a great point in bringing it up.

The best interview I have ever seen. Attack Poodles, LOL

Thank you for posting this.

all of a sudden just 'MSM' seems inadequate...

will hence forth use 'MSM attack poodles'. Yeah.

VP candidate?

This is my first exposure to her, and I like what I've seen here. Would she make a good VP for someone?

Thank you Ron for waking me up.

Fed. Chair or Treasury would be awesome —

and sweet revenge...

Thank you for putting this on the top of the front page

it made me click on the interview. Wow! Jam packed full of information presented in a rational and sane manner...not that I don't like to be entertained once in a while, but IMO CAF presented 100% information...no filler.

I'm glad you watched it

I watched the whole thing last night, and it was well worth the time. Talk about connecting the dots.

He's the man.

Yes, I am listening again for the 2nd time - well worth it

I am thinking if communities would take the time and listen to this interview, perhaps grassroots can eject the parasite...I know, start in mine...and that is how the parasite will be ejected...each community finding the truth is a dose of worming medicine...or at least each sharing the information with one's sphere of influence linking concentric circles.

Thank you, Michael, for providing a place where Liberty has a voice for many ears!

You know, Ben Carson recomments a health savings account being assigned at birth, wonder if IBM has been tapped on the shoulder?

???QUESTION???: if you have a moment and don't mind sharing, you linked Gary Webb who CAF mentioned... what is your opinion of John Pilger? I have been introduced to him as of late and he is way out of my comfort zone, but so is truth at times. Liberty can be a tricky place to navigate at times :)

John Pilger

I don't know a lot about him, but what I've seen so far I like. He seems solid.

I remember reading this book about 10 years ago:

And it seemed to be on the mark.

Have you watched his film, "The War You Don't See"?


- - - -

As for CAF - I can see watching that interview a second time. And a third. And more...

He's the man.
