Catherine Austin Fitts: Complete Breakdown of Financial Controls in US Government

Former HUD Assistant Housing Secretary and investment advisor Catherine Austin Fitts reveals her thoughts on the ever-rising debt ceiling… what Obamacare is really about (and that’s not socialized healthcare)… why over $4 trillion missing from federal programs may not be incompetence, but a covert strategy… how to protect yourself from the constant devaluation of the US dollar… and what exactly the Popsicle Index measures and why it matters.

Here are a few excerpts:

“I don’t see Obamacare as something designed to offer healthcare. … I think the question comes down to a bigger one, which is, are we going to create a society where one hundred percent of everything is digitized and under central control?”

“Well, you have a complete breakdown of internal financial controls in the US government. … You had over $4 trillion of what is called undocumentable adjustments and to this day, [these agencies] have never, as required by law, produced audited financial statements.”

- - -

“In my experience, government is not incompetent at all. … Gridlock is a cover story, incompetence is a cover story. There is a plan, you just can’t see what it is.”

- - -

"The negative return on government investment is so enormous, which is not productive or economic, if we could reverse engineer that, we could build a significantly wealthier economy."

Now that was time well spent.

The tape was only 24 minutes but I started, stopped, and replayed it multiply times. She is easy to listen to, a straight talker. Bottom line: the system is run by psychopaths and is now insane.

I have to prepare for

I have to prepare for Catherine Austin Fitts much like I would prepare for an acid trip. Revealing, insightful, but not always pleasant. I have to be in comfortable surroundings, with few other stressors.

Thank you so much for posting this - will be definitely

listening to it this evening! I find her viewpoints always fascinating.


She understands more than

anyone I'm aware of how the corruption works. In November, she said it's not just corrupt agencies, but an economic model that we all feed, yet collectively have the power to starve.


Her people are Quakers. I did not know that.

Yes yes.

"it's not just corrupt agencies, but an economic model that we all feed, yet collectively have the power to starve."

I would add to that not only an economic model but governmental model as well.

Here is some of that missing $4T; Massive EPA Fraud Exposed.

Massive Fraud Has Been Unveiled At The EPA (Again)

A report released by the EPA’s Inspector General found that over 90% of sampled transactions were for “prohibited, improper, or erroneous purchases.” Worst of all, the sample size was extremely small at only 80 transactions out of 67,000 transactions during the sample period. Considering EPA cardholders spent $29 million in taxpayer dollars in 2012 with a potential 90% fraud rate, you do the math.

Grow Pot

Smart or stupid, informed or otherwise you folks need to make it your mission to grow pot and to encourage all others to do the same. Hemp seed will nourish your body like no other substance on earth. The medicine derived from the plant or taken in while plant matter is consumed is vastly more effective than anything the criminal pharma empire has produced thus far. The fibers will clothes and shelter you and your family and will last ten times longer than any crap we buy that is made in a sweat shop somewhere. The plastic from cannabis is biodegradable and the biofuel produced from it is top quality. Cannabis is the solution to all of these problems and the documentation proving this has existed for more than my lifetime. This is why America is in such shitty shape. The entire hoard of useless eaters never took the opportunity of correcting error for truth and so here we are trying to correct a situation left to us by no fewer than three generations of pathetic American who never questioned authority. God if I ever have kids...

She is the smartest person I am aware of. Just brilliant.

In particular she assesses the big picture.

She is a treat to listen to. If you haven't already, check out this talk:

I Just listen to the link you posted. I have always looked

forward to listening to Catherine when she was on Coast to Coast. I would love to see her serving in the White House Administration if we win the White House back in 2016. (:

"Gridlock is a cover story. There is a plan, you just can't see what it is."

She just said that. I'm trying to find that cartoon she's talking about.

He's the man.

She is the smartest person I am aware of. Just

exceptional. In particular she assesses the big picture.
