“Black people are hopeless. We are moving them out and moving Hispanics in.” ~Deputy Assistant Secretary of HUD, Clinton Administration, to Catherine Austin Fitts, then CEO of Hamilton Securities Group, lead financial advisor to FHA/HUD, 1994
by Catherine Austin Fitts
I could write a book about the genocidal targeting of the African-American community during the Clinton Administration. In fact, I did. It is called Dillon, Read & Co and the Aristocracy of Stock Profits.
I have tried to publish it in hard copy three times. Each time I experienced sabotage and inexplicable behavior. Finally, on the last go round, I receieved highly sophisticated and subtle threats to the lives of family. I took those threats seriously. So the book remains freely available on line, never published in book form.I could write a lot more.
The Clinton Administration built the foundations and complex engineering for the housing bubble and private prisons. The entire bipartisan Washington elite ~ white and black alike ~ were in a state of high excitement on the profits and capital gains they would make on real estate and gentrification. That included profits in DC neighborhoods as waves of SWAT teams rounded up kids in poor neighborhoods to process through the criminal justice system. Those kids were headed to prisons where they would work for a DOJ prison company that generated profits making uniforms for the military. This is where Eric Holder made his bones – helping to round up young kids to fill up the prison machinery.
However, there is no need for me to write more. Michelle Alexander in The Nation just did a nice job of summarizing some of the high points.
Now Bernie Sanders has fired the first salvo for pitching the African American vote. (See video above.) Question is will anyone start looking seriously at the real Clinton record decimating black America?
If they do, this campaign could even start to interest me. Bob Parry just referred to the campaign as “The Misinformation Mess.” That is way too nice. The lies here are much, much deeper. They go back much longer, and take us all the way into America’s heart of darkness.
Alas, we can only look at truth of the Clintons if we are prepared to look at the truth of ourselves.
“Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set ye free.”
