1st Quarter Wrap Up – The Clash of Civilizations

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” ~ The United States Declaration of Independence

By Catherine Austin Fitts

Our theme for the 2017 1st Quarter Wrap Up is “The Clash of Civilizations – Can a new administration preserve a prosperous economy without more debt, crime & war?”

Dr. Farrell joins me this week to discuss our theme. We assess the first 70 days of the Trump administration and the contradictions at the heart of the American economy,

Our web presentation comes complete with —

  • Overview of the Washington DC financial ecosystem;
  • People and profiles of the new administration;
  • A presidential report card for the first 70 days;
  • Top accomplishments;
  • Top material omissions and stumbles;
  • Recommendations; and,
  • Links for Solari Report coverage of the Trump administration.

We will discuss the clash of civilizations happening in the Western world- and whether we will permit the destruction of the principles, values and laws that created the Western democracies and are the foundation of our prosperity.

Our goal is to help you see past the “shriek-o-meter” that is distracting the public and to provide you with critical insight regarding the real power and money issues driving events behind the scenes.


The following week, Dr. Farrell joins me again for an in-depth review of News Trends and Stories. Check out the web presentation for a listing of the top trends and links for the top stories of the first three months of 2017.

In the third week, I will present the 1st Quarter Equity Overview combined with our quarterly Rambus Chartology. Check out the web presentation for the fixed income, equity and commodities charts as of the end of the 1st Quarter.

For Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Zero Days, a documentary about the creation and propagation of the Stuxnet computer virus. The film addresses the vulnerabilities of energy and industrial systems to cyber attack, the joint US- Israeli effort to target the Iranian nuclear industry and the development of the US Cyber Command – a new military front in the propagation of global digital violence. If you have ever questioned my statement that digital systems have zero integrity, Zero Days will help you understand one of the reasons why.
