“You can have my house, you can have my car, you can have my job, but you can not have my joy!”
~ Co-Pastor Susie Owens
By Catherine Austin Fitts
Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-Ga) served in the House of Representatives with distinction from 1997 to 2003 and 2005-6 and was nominated by the Green Party to serve as US President in 2008. It is largely due to her work in Congress that we know as much as we do about trillions missing from the US government, sex-slave trafficking by defense contractor officials and the failure to achieve transparency and accountability regarding the events of 9/11. The shenanigans that McKinney managed in her 2002 defeat and 2004 re-election to Congress were documented in the Guerrilla News Network production American Blackout.
I have said many times that we have three pathways before us:
Our focus at Solari is change. I have asked Congresswoman McKinney to join us on the Solari Report this week to discuss the REAL issues we face in 2016.
We need to understand what a successful United States and a successful world really look like. McKinney is one of the seasoned leaders who has been in the fray, grappled with the issues and is helping people create a practical vision. She is brilliant and shoots straight – so be prepared for a much more informative discussion than you are used to hearing from “entertainment politics.”
In our Let’s go to the Movies segment, I will review Netflix’ new documentary on one of the great performers of the last generation: Nina Simone.
Simone left the United States in 1970 with good reason to be concerned for her safety. The film is a sobering reminder of the importance of not losing your love in the face of the evil in this world – something Congresswoman McKinney and I have grappled with a lot! The documentary is also a remarkable introduction to this extraordinary musician and her artistic contribution.
There will be lots more on current markets and geopolitics in our Money & Markets segment. If you’re not a Solari Report subscriber yet, you can learn more about becoming one here.
Talk to you Thursday!
