“If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.”
~ James Madison, fourth President of the United States
By Catherine Austin Fitts
We are seeing an increased use of covert force delivered via sophisticated surveillance technologies and exotic weaponry (both visible and invisible) to stage violent events. Such events are designed to:
- Draw media attention / boost media revenues
- Shift popular opinion
- Justify government policies and acts of war
- Further centralize wealth and political power
Indeed, it may be said that such events – often referred to as false flag events – are a form of street theater or reality TV which have been taken to a whole new level of intensity and profitability.
Under the circumstances, it is not surprising that my esteemed ally, Richard Dolan, is writing a book about false flag events. I took the opportunity to invite Richard to join me this week on the Solari Report to discuss his research.
Two phenomena are critical to the development of false flag capabilities: the emergence of private armies and intelligence agency who can, along with their public counterparts, command a remarkable array of new and invisible high tech surveillance tools and invisible weaponry. Because these topics are complex, I have researched and written a series of book reviews to supplement this week’s discussion:
- The Modern Mercenary
- Guinea Pigs: Technologies of Control
- Mark M. Rich on the Nuts & Bolts of Tyranny (subscriber-only)
My goal is not to draw you into the heart of darkness. Rather, I want you to see what is happening around you so that you are less likely to be tricked or harmed.
In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review a new TV show, Mr. Robot, which was recommended by one of our most astute subscribers. It is the story a young cyber-security expert who must navigate between greedy corporations, dangerous hackers, rapist drug dealers and naïve psychiatrists while searching for a pathway to a “free and inspired” life.
And you thought you were having a bad day!
I will also be reporting on the latest events in Money & Markets as I drive across the country and return to Tennessee. Don’t forget to post your questions in Ask Catherine.
