Precious Metals Market Report with Franklin Sanders

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality.” ~Lao Tsu

By Catherine Austin Fitts

Franklin Sanders will join me next week for the precious metals market report. Franklin will walk us through what has happened in the gold and silver markets this year. We will discuss the current correction and how gold and silver prices may be impacted by the Fed decision in September.

We will also discuss the end of the debt-financed growth model and what it means to the outlook for precious metals.  Whether the fury at the Fed, the high disapproval ratings of the Presidential candidates, the growing concern about falling productivity growth, what appears to be an unraveling of Obamacare and the growing pressure to reengineer government budgets in the United States and worldwide — all of these matters make it clear that the costs of centralization, secrecy and privilege have become unbearable.

Franklin recently published a joke that I just have to share.

“It reminds me of the two old boys, Willie & Earl, who used to drive trucks together. Willie was being tested to renew his license, & the inspector asked him, “Suppose you are going down the long steep grade of Monteagle Mountain, and suppose further that your brakes went out. Now suppose that you look at the foot of the mountain and see 35 cars in front of you waiting for a railroad train to pass. What would you do next?” Willie never hesitated. “I’d wake up Earl.” Inspector said, “Wake up Earl? Why on earth would you wake up Earl?” Willie shot back, “Cause he ain’t never seen a wreck like this!”

We have never quite seen a wreck like the one into which we are headed. A recent report in Tennessee where Franklin and I live concludes that 50 percent of the current jobs will be replaced with automation. It really is time to rebuild our local economies, centralization be damned!

In Let’s Go to the Movies I will discuss the controversial autism documentary Vaxxed – what it is about, why the controversy, and why it is important to you to understand the issues. Essentially, if autism continues to grow at current rates, it will overwhelm the educational and health care system and have a devastating human and economic impact. It is essential that we figure out what causes autism and reverse the trends.

I will cover the latest developments in markets and geopolitics in Money & Market. Make sure to post your questions for Ask Catherine.

Talk to you Thursday!


  1. Catherine–One of your best interviews with Franklin! I’m going to listen to it a couple more times….lots of info here. Equally valuable is what you said about the healthcare industry. I’ve always thought that people don’t question nearly enough just how “necessary” much of our healthcare is, and how necessary many prescription medications are. You’ve touched on it many times, that aiming for “health” is more valuable than figuring out how to afford the mainstream healthcare system. That is a subject as valuable as gold, and we could explore it endlessly. I work very hard to keep my elderly mother out of the clutches of the tapeworm medical system, because she doesn’t need all of that; she experienced an unnecessary prescription recently that just gave her side effects and took away her quality of life. She stopped taking it, and immediately improved. These doctors and hospitals play the elderly like a slot machine. They need to stop acting like drug dealers as well.

  2. I read the article about how American women in particular are being over-prescribed (to put it politely) narcotics and anti-anxiety drugs among a plethora of other things and heard you mention the problem on this report.

    I am wondering if you are familiar with the book Chasing The Scream by Johann Hari. I peeked around the site and saw him referenced a few times, but not the book.

    He travels all around the world in pursuit of the origins and consequences of our policies and enforcement regarding narcotics and comes up with unexpected and very creditably researched results. It is a compassionate and eye opening book that I highly recommend on this topic. Plus there’s a big shocker at the end which is well worth the reading to get to.

  3. The Chase pet pig commercial, and it’s entire ad/PR/marketing program, is important because they have such a hold on the masses, ensnaring them into a system that harvests their time and money. I went on an Internet Forum dedicated to Chase credit cards because I was curious, and I found thousands of complaints! People gave detailed complaints about how the bank is sneaky in charging people extra fees, and the overloaded customer service reps simply repeat like robots, “There’s nothing I can do.” And these Chase customers are honest on the Forum about how much of their money is being drained by the bank, which is a lot. They would be much better off getting their bank accounts and credit cards through a credit union or community bank, but they are brainwashed into hooking up with this “prestigious” bank. The Chase ad theme is “Chase what matters.” That’s right–this bank has customers chasing after their own hard-earned money that is being syphoned off from them! And Chase customers, according to their complaints, spend a lot of precious time chasing after the bank, questioning fees and trying to reverse errors.

    • Hard to fathom why anyone would do business with a bank with such a documented record – other than entrainment and subliminals and other forms of professional mind control.

      • As a current/ soon-to-be-former Chase customer, I will tell you exactly why I banked there. I havent owned a television for more than a decade, so it cant be the commercials….

        1) I travel. A lot. I move. A lot. Chase is the only bank that is almost everywhere.

        2) Unlike the other bank that is almost everywhere (BofA) they don’t treat you like a barefoot bag of dog poo when you walk in the door. Theyre actually really, really nice. (My nickname for BofA is Bank of Equality. It doesnt matter how much money you have on deposit, they treat eveyone equally like sh*t)

        3) Sheer, unfettered convenience. Unlike many other banks, their lobby hours are till 6 pm. (Bank of Equality closes at 4 pm in most places)

        In the event of lost card or identity theft, most branches can replace your card on-site within minutes. They have an onsite notary thats free for account holders. (I have no idea why my life requires so many notarized documents, but it does). They have a QuickPay feature where you can send funds instantly to other chase customers using their email address.The fees for things like wire transfers are minimal compared to other banks. Unlike Bank of Equality, they dont use algorithms that cause your account to overdraft. The international wire cut-off time is 2 pm Pacific and I can do it online, and at flagship locations such as San Francisco and other major cities, they have branches open 7 days/wk,

        Its *insanely* convenient.

        4) Sheer, blissful Ignorance. Prior to becoming a Solari subscriber; I had absolutely no idea that using a local bank would make any kind of difference. I assumed that all banks were one shake of a lambs tail away from insolvency.

        Given my lifestyle, which, by the way, is an untethered lifestyle shared by many of my millennial peers (Im at the oldest end of that definition) the added inconvenience of using a local bank just mades ZERO sense.

        However—now that I have been enlightened about how the money works, informed that there are alternatives, and informed about HOW those alternatives make a tangible difference in taking our power back from the Tapeworm (honestly, I used to think that ALL the banks sold their stuff to wall street, even the local ones)—

        Now that I understand all that–NOW its WORTH it for me to forego all those cushy Chase comforts and start to utilize mobile deposits (only an option for smaller amounts), deal with the delay and inconvenience of mailing in larger deposit amounts, and suck up the fees and inconveniences of using Walmart or the post office when I need cashiers checks and the like.

        But, I am proud to say that I did my research, and as of this week, opened both a personal and business account at a nice little local bank in the heartland of America.

        • WONDERFUL! Congratulations. I must say that I travel a lot and have no problem getting what I want when I want it – the difference is I probably pay more in ATM fees. I can call into my bank and get great service anywhere in the world – they know me personally. We also deposit digitally – so instantaneous.


    Hello Catherine,

    We met briefly at a lunch in Austin and I mentioned this lovely little greeting card. I couldn’t help but send it your way after enjoying

    Mr Sanders’ statement about experience w computer nerds. Technocracy, Psy-Ops, chemical/ electronic warfare on civilian populations,

    internet addiction and individual surveillance, social media control systems, eroding sovereignty and supra national governance systems,

    global moral missions as unifying motivation…on and on…quite a little hit parade spelled out in dispassionate clarity.

    My hunch here is architects make great prognosticators and Z big has mastered a certain passive tone that seems to observe

    intentions as natural trends; a very clever rhetorical posture indeed!

    Your question about general awareness of a “dark vision” reminds me of a quote from the Louis Armstrong.

    When asked by a reporter “What is Jazz?” Pops replied: “If you have to ask then you’ll never know!”

    As always, blessing and thanks to you and your staff for courage vision and humor!…

  5. I forget which report it is where Catherine says about people being overwhelmed, and that if you want people to do anything these days you have to make it EXTREMELY simple….

    Chase is following through on their entrainment by doing exactly that.

    In addition to all the conveniences I mentioned above—-About 18 months ago, they rolled out these automatic teller machines in the lobby. At first, I hated them. I saw it as more shadow work, and how the robots are taking over everything. (they are. but thats for another time).

    Well, at these teller machines in the lobby, you can take out I think its up to $3,000 in cash, dispensed by the machine, in whatever combination of denominations you want from $100s down to singles without needing to fill out a deposit slip or explain to the cashier why you need $500 in 1s. Or, alternatively, why you need $3000 in 100s;

    So, you pop in, get a bunch of cash, and pop out in minutes, without having to deal with a person.
