Unpacking Divide and Conquer with Junious Ricardo Stanton

” For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a strong mind.” ~ 2 Timothy 1:7

By Catherine Austin Fitts

The economics of hatred is a fascinating area of research – one I recommend to you. When you start digging in to who makes money on hatred you start to see the world through a new lens. There is no more effective tactic to financial and economic control than keeping the general population in a state of dramatic competition rather than peaceful cooperation.  Arranging for your enemies to destroy each other in ways that profit you is an ancient tactic – but with digital technology and multinational corporate media it is achieving a very modern twist.

This week on The Solari Report, I will be speaking with one of the independent producers I most admire – author and host of The Digital Underground and The Cyberspace Sanctuary, Junious Ricardo Stanton. Junious and I are both from the Philadelphia area, both attended the University of Pennsylvania. We share a lifelong passion for understanding the world around us from the global economy to our local community. Junious served as a councilman in Lawnside, New Jersey and studied urban planning.

An invaluable step to living a free and inspired life is building immunity to the divide and conquer media and politics around us. To do that, I find it particularly valuable to understand the effort to alienate men from women and black from white.  Remove those two manipulations and the entire game could unravel.

I asked Junious to join me because I want a raw, uncut conversation. Junious is the master of dealing with our darkest obstacles while keeping things in a higher mind. He has grappled with these issues for many years both professionally and on and off air.

Pastor TD Jakes once said, “If you lose your love, you lose your power.” How do you survive the “beat down” and preserve your love? There is no more important question before us. Love is the backbone of a culture that endures. Jim Rouse once challenged the design group for Columbia, Maryland, “How do we create communities where we are free to love one another?” This question is at the heart of outwitting the uncivil society growing up around us. We need to talk about this and we need to do it now.

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

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review After the Wedding, a remarkable Danish movie that reminds us that there are very few degrees of separation between the richest 1% and the poorest 1% on the globe. Indeed, when the love of a man and a woman, and the love of a mother and father for a child are involved, we are all are intimately and powerfully connected.

Talk to you Thursday!


  1. Hi Catherine: You have stated that you expect capital controls. Do you agree with the following:

    “We must not think that the people who run our world have plans to relinquish power with the attitude of “O well, we had a good run”. The new game that is coming is simply a re-packaging of the present one and our only advantage to be had is in recognizing this and being positioned to be on the right side of the equation.

    Everything in the world is connected and nothing happens in a vacuum.

    The supposed actions of gov’t to shut down the party of the bankers have lead to regulations (that are fully in place) that will be portrayed as having forced the bankers to simply seize (haircuts) monies from their “investors” and that means you and I.”

    This seems to describe the same old game: create the crisis, then inject the solution which is nothing more than another harvesting of the people’s wealth disguised as an inevitable outcome. If government does not regulate, we lose. If government regulates, we lose.

    • Dasa:

      I don’t expect them. They are here. We are living underneath the load of massive capital controls. Read our articles about crowdfunding or the FBAR or taxes on precious metals. Those are about massive capital controls instituted with layers of vast complexity.

      I agree that everything in the world is connected.

      I do not agree that it is likely that there will be a grab for US insured bank deposits for the foreseeable future. Why would a country that can print money out of thin air let the FDIC fund go down? No reason to do so unless they wanted to reengineer the system and there is no sign currently that this is the case.

      If you do not want “too big too fail” then there is only one other choice – for the uninsured depositors to lose some or all of their money. That is pure math. I can not fathom objecting to “Too big to fail” policies and then
      implying there is an outrageous conspiracy when the regulators prepare the other feasible alternative – losses on uninsured deposits.

      The recent derivatives issue on Dodd Frank involves another layer which I will try to blog about.

      In a “no government” model, then all or some of the depositors will lose their money when banks fail.

      Yes, the current governance system is organized to screw the little guy, but frankly the black budget is a way bigger problem that the banking system.


  2. Hello Catherine:
    I just finished listening to Unpacking Divide and Conquer. It was one of your best. Jenious Ricardo Stanton has a lot too share.
    He reminded me my Irish ancestors lived under apartheid for hundreds of years. Scott/ Irish and African Americans have similar histories/ memories. Thank you for bringing Mr. Stanton to my attention. I hope you will invite him again soon.
    Merry Christmas.
    Katie O’Flaherty Madden

  3. Please explain to me how I get to the Blog. ? You talk as if it isis a different place, than the Blog section on the right side of the page.
    Thee they are all different subjects. They do not sound like th ecurent blog you use?

    • Max:

      The blog is on the home page – it is the entire page. So when you go to solari.com or click on home it takes you to the blog. Sounds like I should just start referring to it as the website. Our target date for launching our
      new website is the end of January. As part of that all of the content will be moved into the blog format. My apologies for the confusion. We used to have a website with a blog. The blog is steadily overtaking the whole site!

      If you can not find something I have referred to in the Solari Report, there is a search box on the upper right which will do searches. If you want to go back to prior dates, just click previous at the bottom of the page and it will take you back. Or there are links on the right to take you back to only a given category.

      Let me know if you would like me to have Customer Service call to walk you through tips for navigation.
