1st Quarter 2019 Wrap Up – News Trends & Stories, Part II

“The enemy of women is not men. No, and the enemy of the black is not the white. The enemy of the capitalist is not the communist, the enemy of homosexual is not heterosexual, the enemy of Jew is not Arab, the enemy of youth is not the old, the enemy of hip is not redneck, the enemy of Chicano is not gringo and the enemy of women is not men….We all have the same enemy. The enemy is the tyranny of the dull mind.” ~ Tom Robbins, Even Cowgirls Get the Blues

By Catherine Austin Fitts

This coming week is the second in our two-part publication of News Trends & Stories for the 1st Quarter 2019 Wrap Up. Dr. Joseph P. Farrell joins me for our analysis of what is happening in 2019—and where it is going.

Last week in Part II, we reviewed the top ten stories in Economy & Financial Markets and Geopolitics – and discussed the fire at Notre-Dame in Paris as well as the linkages between culture, the economy, and political tensions.

In Part II, we look at the top stories in Culture, Science and Technology, Space, and Food and Health and cover our top picks for Unanswered Questions, Inspiration, and Take Action. We also fill in the Trump Report Card for the 1st Quarter.

I hope you take advantage of both Parts I and II; – I know of no better round-up of the deeper news than these discussions. Make sure to check out the News Trends & Stories section on our 1st Quarter 2019 Wrap Up web presentation for top trends, headlines in each story, as well as recommended videos.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley, a new documentary that describes the rise and fall of Theranos, the blood testing start-up that went from a purported valuation of $0 to $9 billion to $0, led by its founder Elizabeth Holmes and her board of all-star deep-staters.
