Investment advisor and former Assistant Secretary of Housing Catherine Austin Fitts thinks Vladimir Putin saying “the dollar is going to collapse soon” is a flashing warning for the U.S. dollar’s value in the not-so-distant future. Fitts explains, “What Putin is saying is the dollar is going into a steep decline, and what was interesting about his comment is he said ‘soon.’ . . . What is the ability of the U.S. military versus the Russian or Chinese military to defend the dollar’s position? That is intelligence that Putin has, and because Putin has this intelligence, people really stood up and I really stood up and took notice. If Putin has access to that intelligence, and I don’t, which is saying the dollar could go into a deep decline, we need to take a serious look at it. The dollar is clearly under pressure, and if you look at reserves, the central banks are buying gold and selling dollars, including the Russians and Chinese.”
Fitts also points out, “The dollar is holding, and yet, if you look at the price of household goods in America, where I live, it’s approximately 8% to 10% a year in prices of household goods (going up), and you can tell the money printing has been significant. If you look at what the Fed is doing in the repo market, we are really on the next QE. So, we’ve got a problem with currency debasement, and what Putin is saying is it’s going to go faster, a lot faster in 2020, and that is an issue I am looking at. . . . One of the scenarios I am looking at is the dollar declines significantly in 2020. . . . When you have real household inflation at 10% every year for the past five years, the dollar has really already taken a hit as are many fiat currencies around the world. . . . What has really supported the dollar is its huge market share both in trade and traditionally in reserves. . . . You need to withstand a scenario where in 2020, instead of getting 10% inflation, you need to withstand 20% or 25% inflation in real household goods. . . . I have been saying for many, many years the dollar is strong. This is the first time I started to see the potential for a crack in the armor. I think we have to be prepared for the potential for a more serious decline than we’ve been dealing with for the last five years.”
What adds to the uncertainty of the U.S. dollar is the “missing” $21 trillion that was discovered by Dr. Mark Skidmore and analyzed and recognized as a huge problem by Catherin Austin Fitts, publisher of the popular Solari Report. Also, analysis Fitts has done on the government making the “missing money” a “national security issue” with FASAB rule 56 (Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board) makes the secret money a hidden horror the general public is totally unaware of. Fitts explains, “The dollar is under pressure because we have been talking about the ‘missing money’ and FASAB rule 56, and the dollar is not what it used to be. If you look at the integrity behind the dollar, it’s not there. If you read “The Real Game of Missing Money,” which we did this big article for investors to do due diligence, the arrangements behind the dollar and the Treasury market do not have integrity. The deceleration of the integrity of the dollar is very significant and serious. . . . You’ve got to be more resilient, and it’s not just finances, you’ve got to be more resilient in terms of safety. If we have this kind of breakdown with the rule of law with FASAB rule 56, it’s not going to take long before it breaks into your neighborhood.”

Did you know that there was an electronic RUN ON THE BANKS on September 11th, 2008 that if allowed to continue would have crashed the United States economy along with the entire global economy? It’s true, it happened, and the potential for it happening again now appears to be extremely high. Lynette Zang joins me to discuss.
A stunning documentary.
Read labels carefully before you buy a manufactured food.
We’ve heard for years about the dangers of eating too much fat or salt. But there have never been recommended limits for sugar on Canadian food labels, despite emerging research that suggests the sweet stuff may be making more of us fat and sick. In the fifth estate’s season premiere, Gillian Findlay digs into the surprising science — and the reaction from the food industry — to reveal The Secrets of Sugar. Has the sugar industry been hiding an unsavoury truth from consumers?
A small but influential group of medical researchers is stirring up the health debate, linking sugar not just to rising obesity rates but also to a host of diseases including cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s.
We put a family of four on a healthy diet to try to beat their sugar habit and track the surprising results. We talk to leading scientists – and their critics. And we ask the food industry why those ingredient labels are far from clear when it comes to how much sugar is really on your plate.

Kerth Barker’s books, radio programs and videos have been telling us of these things for years. It’s finally coming to the surface, in movies, television, music videos, and even on the daily news shows. Below are two excellent reports of the “in-your-face” influence that has moved out of the shadows and put itself in the spotlight. Let’s examine what’s going on. What is behind the attempts to legalize pedophilia and cannibalism? What is behind these public displays of devotion to the dark side?

The 2019 AMAs was a satanic extravaganza mixed with a whole lot of “woke” brainwashing. And, to top it off, there was a recurrent theme that was difficult to ignore: Hell. Like, literal hell. Indeed, several performances featured artists performing in actual hellfire. And, when there was no hellfire, we had to suffer through another kind of hell: Virtue signaling: heavy-handed and contrived virtue signaling.
If you did not watch the AMAs, you did good because you did not miss anything. Except for a boatload of agenda-pushing. Here are the lowlights of this three hours of hell…
The media, for selfish reasons, may finally be waking up to the consequences of their malign smears and misrepresentation of Julian Assange.
Newspapers and other media in the United States, Britain and Australia have recently declared a passion for freedom of speech, especially their right to publish freely. They are worried by the “Assange effect”.
It is as if the struggle of truth-tellers like Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning is now a warning to them: that the thugs who dragged Assange out of the Ecuadorean embassy in April may one day come for them.
A common refrain was echoed by the Guardian last week. The extradition of Assange, said the paper, “is not a question of how wise Mr. Assange is, still less how likable. It’s not about his character, nor his judgment. It’s a matter of press freedom and the public’s right to know.”
What the Guardian is trying to do is separate Assange from his landmark achievements, which have both profited the Guardian and exposed its own vulnerability, along with its propensity to suck up to rapacious power and smear those who reveal its double standards.
The poison that has fueled the persecution of Julian Assange is not as obvious in this editorial as it usually is; there is no fiction about Assange smearing feces on embassy walls or being awful to his cat.
Instead, the weasel references to “character” and “judgment” and “likeability” perpetuate an epic smear which is now almost a decade old. Nils Melzer, the United Nations Rapporteur on Torture, used a more apt description. “There has been,” he wrote, “a relentless and unrestrained campaign of public mobbing.” He explains mobbing as “an endless stream of humiliating, debasing and threatening statements in the press”. This “collection ridicule” amounts to torture and could lead to Assange’s death.
Having witnessed much of what Melzer describes, I can vouch for the truth of his words. If Julian Assange were to succumb to the cruelties heaped upon him, week after week, month after month, year upon year, as doctors warn, newspapers like the Guardian will share the responsibility.
A few days ago, the Sydney Morning Herald’s man in London, Nick Miller, wrote a lazy, specious piece headlined, “Assange has not been vindicated, he has merely outwaited justice.” He was referring to Sweden’s abandonment of the so-called Assange investigation.
Miller’s report is not untypical for its omissions and distortions while masquerading as a tribune of women’s rights. There is no original work, no real inquiry: just smear.
There is nothing on the documented behavior of a clutch of Swedish zealots who hijacked the “allegations” of sexual misconduct against Assange and made a mockery of Swedish law and that society’s vaunted decency.
He makes no mention that in 2013, the Swedish prosecutor tried to abandon the case and emailed the Crown Prosecution Service in London to say it would no longer pursue a European Arrest Warrant, to which she received the reply: “Don’t you dare!!!” (Thanks to Stefania Maurizi of La Repubblica)
Other emails show the CPS discouraging the Swedes from coming to London to interview Assange – which was common practice – thus blocking progress that might have set him free in 2011.
There was never an indictment. There were never charges. There was never a serious attempt to put “allegations” to Assange and question him – behavior that the Swedish Court of Appeal ruled to be negligent and the General Secretary of the Swedish Bar Association has since condemned.
Both the women involved said there was no rape. Critical written evidence of their text messages was willfully withheld from Assange’s lawyers, clearly because it undermined the “allegations”. …
Witnessing and participating in a baby’s acquisition of language is one of the most delightful chapters of parenthood. For most children, the progression from babbling to words to simple phrases unfolds seamlessly within the first two to three years, and by five years of age, they are able to use adult grammar and tell stories. However, a growing subset of American children suffers from speech delays or other language difficulties that are cheating families out of sharing these exciting milestones and the children of their potential for a full and productive life.
According to the 2012 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), nearly 8% of children aged 3-17 had, in the previous year, one or more communication disorders, defined by the CDC as problems with speech, language, voice or swallowing. Of the four categories, problems with speech (stuttering or difficulty making correct sounds) and language (difficulty learning, using or understanding words or sentences) were by far the most frequent communication disorders. Among those with communication disorders, fully a third of younger children and a fourth of preteens and adolescents had multiple communication disorders. The NHIS also confirmed what study after study has shown—that male sex is a strong risk factor for communication, language and speech impairments. Communication disorders were present in 9.6% of boys who participated in the NHIS versus 5.7% of girls.
National studies suggest that the proportion of U.S. children with speech and language disorders is rising. Depending on the survey, the proportion has grown by anywhere from 26% (2007 and 2011 NHIS) to 56% (2005-06 and 2009-10 National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs). Moreover, speech and language problems frequently layer on top of other childhood-onset disorders suspected of having environmental causes. Commenting on speech delays that present in the context of “complex neurodevelopmental disorders,” one researcher notes that “The term complex…is used to include environmental contributions to neurodevelopmental disorders” [emphasis in original]. In 2016, the Institute of Medicine hypothesized that the same factors that are contributing to the increased prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are giving rise to the uptick in speech and language disorders.
Layers of disability
Atypical language development can be “idiopathic” (no known cause) or it “can be a secondary characteristic of other physical and developmental problems that may first manifest as language problems.” A study published this year confirmed the frequent overlap with other disorders, examining the prevalence of motor speech disorders among nearly 350 young participants (average age=13) who also had one of eight neurodevelopmental disorders (including various genetic syndromes, “idiopathic intellectual disability,” severe traumatic brain injury or ASD). The researchers reported that almost half (48%) of their sample met the criteria for speech disorders—over two and a half times more than the reported prevalence (18%) in studies involving idiopathic speech delays.
In children with ASD, language impairment can be a marker of poor long-term outcomes. A French study that followed children with autism for 15 years (after recruiting them into the study at an average age of 5 years) identified three baseline characteristics that predicted persistent behavioral difficulties and problems functioning independently, one of which was absence of language. Even in children who have language impairments but no intellectual disability, evidence indicates that the impairments are associated with problems that reverberate “into adult life.” As one researcher asserts, “Language skill is the single most important predictor of long-term educational, social, and vocational achievement for all children, including those with ASD.”
Heavy metals and language development
For decades, studies have documented the ability of heavy metals, and particularly mercury, to impair language development (among many other neurotoxic effects). This research includes past studies of Minimata disease, which showed that prenatal exposure to methylmercury (via industrial releases in Minimata Bay, Japan) led to serious neurodevelopmental delays in children, with language dysfunction being one of the prominent symptoms observed. Longitudinal research in the Faroe Islands later identified widespread effects on brain function resulting from prenatal methylmercury exposure “at exposure levels currently considered safe”—with the most pronounced effects seen in the domains of language, attention and memory. The 2017 Minimata Convention—an international treaty on mercury—lists irreversible language impairment among mercury’s severe health impacts and concurs that mercury’s “effects can be seen even at very low levels,” particularly in fetuses, newborn babies and children.
Children’s exposure to methylmercury occurs primarily through maternal or childhood consumption of seafood, in which mercury bioaccumulates. Methylmercury is an organic mercury compound—and so is ethylmercury, the compound found in the vaccine preservative thimerosal, which is still present in influenza vaccines routinely administered to pregnant women in the U.S. as well as childhood vaccines used around the world. In 2017, CDC toxicologists published a comprehensive review of the two compounds and concluded that there are “many commonalities [and] similarities in the mechanisms of toxic action of methylmercury and ethylmercury.” Many of these—including the ability to cause DNA damage (or impair DNA synthesis), affect cell division, decrease glutathione activity and increase oxidative stress—are hallmarks of ASD and similar neurodevelopmental disorders.
Some authors caution about the potential risks of co-exposure to methylmercury and ethylmercury, which together “might induce more adverse neurotoxic effects than each agent alone.” A Brazilian study published in 2016 confirmed this hypothesis, showing that combined exposure to methylmercury via maternal fish consumption and ethylmercury via thimerosal-containing vaccines produced a statistically significant increase in neurodevelopmental delays, with “age of talking” being one of the primary neurodevelopmental indicators measured.
Where speech and language impairments are concerned, researchers also have identified other substances of concern besides mercury. A few investigators have raised questions about the potential for mercury to interact synergistically with other neurotoxic substances, which include:
- Phthalates—shown to significantly increase the odds of language delay in a dose-response manner, particularly in boys
- Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)—“associated with decrements in cognitive domains that depend on language or are critical for language development”
- Lead—significantly associated with speech-language delays and poorer language skills at older ages
- Acetaminophen—associated with language delay in girls exposed prenatally
Idiopathic or ignored?
At this juncture, it is highly disingenuous to maintain, as U.S. government agencies still do, that most speech disorders “have no known cause.” The scientific literature points to numerous environmental factors likely to be contributing, singly or in combination, to the development of ASD—including “pesticides, phthalates, polychorinated biphenyls, solvents, air pollutants, fragrances, glyphosate and heavy metals, especially aluminum used in vaccines as adjuvant.” There is every reason to suspect that these toxins could also be contributing to speech and language delays. In 2010, researchers criticized “positions that deny a link to environmental toxins and autism,” stating that such positions “are based on relatively weak science and are disregarding the bulk of scientific literature.” Nearly 10 years later, this critique holds true not just for autism but for the tsunami of neurodevelopmental disorders—including speech and language impairments—that is drowning American children.
A bill prefiled in the South Carolina House would make gold and silver coins legal tender in the state. Passage of this bill would take a step toward creating currency competition in South Carolina and undermine the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on money.
Rep. Stewart Jones filed House Bill 4678 (H.4678) on Nov. 20. Under the proposed law, “gold and silver coins minted foreign or domestic shall be legal tender in the State of South Carolina under the laws of this State. No person or other entity may compel another person or other entity to tender or accept gold or silver coin unless agreed upon by the parties.”
Practically speaking, this would allow South Carolina residents to use gold or silver coins to pay taxes and other debts owed to the state. In effect, it would put gold and silver on the same footing as Federal Reserve notes.
The phrase, “unless agreed upon by the parties” has important legal ramifications. This wording reaffirms the court’s ability, and constitutional responsibility according to Article I, Section 10, to require specific performance when enforcing such contracts. If voluntary parties agree to be paid, or to pay, in gold and silver coin, South Carolina courts could not substitute any other thing, e.g. Federal Reserve Notes, as payment.
Time is running out to prevent complete economic collapse when the dollar goes extinct. This should be a priority in every legislature, especially washington.
So we all know about the missing trillions by now, but where is that money going? And what can Americans do to reclaim that money that is rightfully theirs? Join Catherine Austin Fitts of Solari.com and James Corbett of The Corbett Report for this wide-ranging discussion on the most important topic of our time that no one is talking about.
