Control 101 – 3rd Quarter Wrap Up

“Fear is an enemy that can be killed only at close range. The closest range of all is intimacy.” ~ Andrew Vachss.

By Catherine Austin Fitts

This week on the Solari Report, I will present Control 101, the theme of our 2017 3rd Quarter Wrap Up.

For many years, independent media commentators have direly predicted events that did not come to pass. The US dollar was about to collapse. The American economy was also about to collapse. Gold was headed to $5,000 per ounce. True, some pundits were simply marketing fear porn. However, many better commentators were sincere.

For the last two decades, I have been a contrarian in the group. I have said that our economy would “slow burn,” that the dollar was dangerous but dominant – not yet at the point of collapse or replacement. Although I agreed that gold was in a long-term bull market, I thought spectacular price increases were unlikely.

When I tried to explain my thinking, I hit a brick wall. My assessment had little to do with classic economics and financial markets. It had to do with my personal experience with the inner workings of our political, economic, and social control systems.

I learned a great deal about control technologies working inside the establishment. Then I added rich insight from 11 years of protracted litigation with the US federal government and three years of additional tax and compliance responsibilities. These years included significant levels of physical harassment, surveillance, smear campaign, and dirty tricks.

Financial professionals would say “I don’t want to go there.” They did not want to discuss the extent to which our current governance system operates by force both domestically and globally. That is, they did not want to discuss control methods such as fake news, smear campaigns, false flags, control files, malicious prosecution and more.

How can we achieve effective use of our time and money unless we “go there” – unless we deal with reality? The truth is that we cannot use time and money effectively unless we do so, which is why we do “go there” in the Solari Report.

My goal for our discussion of Control 101 is to ensure that you have the framework to understand the wide range of methods used to manipulate and control you, in order to immunize you to them. My goal is to help you create ways to free yourself whenever and wherever possible.

In Money & Markets this week I will discuss the latest financial and geopolitical news.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review the movies posted in your 3rd Quarter Wrap Up web presentation that best demonstrate aspects of control. Our team has created a collection of enormously insightful and entertaining selections, including many reviewed on the Solari Report. Here is the trailer from one of my favorite – the Swedish movie As It Is In Heaven. It reminds us that we can help each other break free – and the importance of music and the arts in helping us do so.

Talk to you Thursday!


  1. HOW DO I GET TO THE REPORT???? Nothing clicked on goes there. The trailers work, the letter to senator, but not report -?????

    Clicking on the report cover, the date or “Solari Report” just brings me back to the same page that I received in email – no more no less.


  2. For my fellow Solari members: The week’s Solari Report is usually posted on the Friday morning following the first appearance of the program/interview/discussion 11 or so PM, Eastern Time, Thursday night–thus no audio links are up at the moment.

  3. I’ll admit it’s a little confusing to have the email/blog post out before the material is ready to be view. However, do not understand the frantic reactions. Stuff happens, be patient…

  4. Ladies and Gentlemen:

    My apologies. We posted late this evening. We have always reserved the right to post late, although we try to post the interview by 6pm and normally do.


    Money & Markets is never posted on the last week of the month. Money & Markets will be posted shortly.


  5. Just read an article about a Senate Bill written in July 2017 called “Senate Bill to Force Citizens to Register Cash Not in a Bank, Violators Get 10 Years in Prison”. It was on The Free Thought Projects website. SB 1241. I haven’t heard of this bill and do not know much about it, but the first paragraph and in the bill SEC. 13. PREPAID ACCESS DEVICES, DIGITAL CURRENCIES, OR OTHER SIMILAR INSTRUMENTS.
    (a) In General.—Section 5312(a) of title 31, United States Code, is amended—
    ““(7) ‘prepaid access device’ means an electronic device or vehicle, such as a card, plate, code, number, electronic serial number, mobile identification number, personal identification number, or other instrument, that provides a portal to funds or the value of funds that have been paid in advance and can be retrievable and transferable at some point in the future.”.”
    I’m guessing this is a way to force people to report all bitcoins and other ‘coins’. Just thought the topic was relevant considering the wrap up topic and the recent Crypto Conference. Again, I just came across this article and it may be well known by many, and am not sure if it is Law. Thanks for a wonderful Wrap Up!

  6. Wow! this Control 101 is terrific. Your presentation is clear and concise. We have our work cut out for us.

    As you know I am a Solari Report enthusiast, I love the weekly interviews and all the comments from the subscribers. I check the blog daily and use a lot of your selections in my work.

    My inspiring and supportive community is you. I connect virtually with Solari, Giza Death Star and Cynthia McKinney. I get my inspiration from you three. No one in my immediate community has any interest in the things we talk about. In fact most are hostile to any discussion of the subjects we discuss. You are like an oasis in the vast wasteland. My deepest thanks comes with this.

    Katie Madden

  7. From Skip Jones:

    Dear Catherine

    My head is spinning from your latest solari report. Control 101 and the Entrainment solari are my two favorites ever. Lots to mull over and listen to over and over.

    Congratulations to you and your team. In these dark times there is a crack that lets the light in. You and Solari are that crack.

    You help me formulate my own views.

    Thanks for your light,


  8. Posting more dialogue with one subscriber:


    Thank you for the feedback. I am so glad it was helpful for you.

    Would it be ok if I posted your comments at Subscriber Comments – I want to encourage everyone to listen.

    Indeed, the more you will post there, it would be helpful to all of us. We are more than anything an intelligence network.

    I encourage subscribers to share with immediate family. However, I would ask that when you share with others that you send them an excerpt and encourage them to subscribe to get the rest.

    We spend approximately $100,000 on work made accessible for free on an annual basis. However we are required to generate enough revenues to cover our expenses. Real intelligence costs money – every person or organization that wants good intelligence pays the cost of producing it.

    The one thing that does not cost money is disinformation and fake news and some entertainment. We can not and will not try to compete with those materials – let alone promote ads in enterprises we who are IMO harming people.

    We are in a different market. We are trying to help real people get real results.

    So anything you could to help people convert from an entertainment model to an intelligence model if they want and need solid intelligence would be appreciated.

    You have made that conversion, and what I have heard from you, you are much better for it.

    Thanks again. I very much appreciate your feedback,


    > Dear Catherine,
    > Your presentation this week I find to be your most poignant and deeply, deeply intelligent on so many levels. My words fail me. As I’ve mentioned in an earlier note, I’ve been following your work since the day the buildings came down and, for me, your lesson this week tops everything else you have done to date in its depth and breadth of scope. I can only imagine what a wrenching experience putting this work together must have been for you. I didn’t ask your permission to do so, but I managed to send your material out to several people via email. I hope this is OK to do. EVERYONE needs to hear what you have to say. If not us, then who? If not now, then when?
    > Regarding the California fires, I’ve sent you some information about the use of Directed Energy Weapons as the energy source for the devastation as well as the likely implementation of Agenda 21. I hope you will publish your views on this most nefarious turn of events.
    > Please stay well and safe.
    > Warm greetings,
    > Carol ????

  9. Dear Catherine,
    I think that this (Control 101) has been your most poignant piece ever! I am grateful to Alex Jones for introducing me to your site through one of his shows on which you appeared; and I know that you were pulling from the depths in this presentation. No where is this more evident than in the medical society right now with the HMO’s, and their incessant regulation of all medications and information that they attempt to drag out of the patient. First they “cure” you, and then they “kill” you …especially if you are over a certain age!…………continue, please your wonderful work. Best regards, Lauran Findlay

  10. I always wondered was became of the Greek gods. Now I have the answer. They waited for this time frame to come back as Catherine and Joseph. There is even an organ in the mix. How could you miss it?

    Always thinking of ways to get the special member content out to those who haven’t yet figured out that members are blessed and protected by the gods.

    How about a member rating system that votes the best shows, to which the naked public can then donate to get access to the he 5 star stories via email? A raffle type system? Not sure. Just know that the whole world needs to hear what CAF is saying. It’s manna from heaven.

  11. Hello,
    does anyone have any information or recommendations for an affordable filter (or some other way) that removes, or at least materially reduces, fluoride in tap water? I spent some time searching and results are inconclusive. I think the reverse osmosis filter does the job but due to its size and price, I cannot consider it at this time.

    If this topic has been discussed elsewhere on the site please forgive the duplication. I am a new subscriber and there is so much in here, I don’t know where to start!

    Thank you,

    • Good question, Tatiana. I know of many people who have discovered that their filter did not filter out fluoride, to their surprise. We did an interview on water filters several years ago, but is out of date now. I will see if I can think of who to ask.

      • Hi Catherine, thank you for the quick response! I am really thrilled to have discovered this community. I cannot even imagine the hardships you went through in your journey and I can not thank you enough for your work.

        I am originally from Eastern Europe and this fluoride thing had been bothering me for a long time. I would have thought that this is one thing that we should be able to deal with fairly easily on our own. Filters are able to remove other things from water, so why not fluoride? We have a “LifeStraw” sold for $15 which makes it safe to drink water literally from puddles on the ground, so I can’t imagine that some entrepreneur could not come up with a solution. I do understand that whether they are “allowed” to market and sell such product widely maybe a different story.

        While most of the people in US remain brainwashed thinking it is good for their teeth, I know that there are communities who know better (vegans and vegetarians tend to be more educated in this area, also raw food community are very aware so if you are in touch with anyone prominent from this community they may have some insights) so I would think there is a certain amount of demand.

        I don’t mind spending time on researching this, however the issue I faced was the unreliable nature of the information available to me as an average person with internet access and no background in chemistry. For each statement that such and such product removed fluoride, I would find another statement that it does not. So I have been running in circles for a while, I need help! 🙂

        I would really really appreciate if you could look into this question for us. My information about size/cost of reverse osmosis filter is also at least five years old, so it is possible that the technology has moved on and it should be considered, I am open to suggestions, I got to get this thing out of my water.

        Thank you so much,

    • Hi Tatiana,
      I’ve been looking into this as well. Want the best water purification system that’s ‘affordable’. The one I’ve found to be the best so far are the Berkey’s. “The Ultimate Guide to Choosing a Gravity Water Filter” It takes a bit of time and energy to actually do what the guide says to do, but so far I think I will try this model. I never knew the difference between ‘filters and purification systems’. Most are just ‘filters’ and that doesn’t do much ‘filtering’ The Berkey systems also have add on filtration for ‘fluoride and something else’. There’s many choices and price ranges for any budget. Hope this helps.
