Wouldn’t you like to “adjust” away your bills? The level of corruption is gargantuan. Catherine Austin Fitts of the Solari Report (link) join Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St to size-up the Trump Administration. Will he drain the swamp or is Trump part of the problem? Has Trump been swallowed by warmongering “Neocons”?
TND Podcast Spotlight: Wall St. For Main St.
Fitts has familiarized herself with the U.S. federal budget and financial statements of the United States. It’s an ugly picture:
“The United States Government has operated outside the law, both Constitutional and financial management laws for quite some time. Certainly since I’ve become familiar with the federal budget. So, starting with fiscal 1998 we have over 11.5 trillion dollars in undocumentable adjustments and the federal government has refused to produced audited financial statements that’s required by law. Now, if you were a public company the exchange wouldn’t allow you to list on the exchange. You wouldn’t be allowed to issue securities. Your bank wouldn’t affect transactions. So you couldn’t function with impunity outside the law because there all sorts of checks and balances that requires you to do so. But interestingly enough the federal government is the largest issuer of securities in the world and the market continues to allow them to borrow money and issue securities despite the fact that they are in complete defiance of the law and have been for more than a couple of decades.”
The state of the nation’s finances is more dire than widely believed. The perception that Trump would be change is widespread. Will President Trump’s enemies torpeedo his presidency and block his ability to get anything done? Catherine Austin Fitts joins Wall St. for Main St. to spotlight pervasive corruption at all levels of government “from sea to shining sea” and how it keeps the status quo going.
Jason also asks Catherine whether Trump is a neocon or he’s been duped into the Syria strikes? Catherine has some interesting ideas about this.
