    Catherine Austin Fitts Explains the Financial Coup D'état

    Catherine Austin Fitts has been following the story of the black budget, the missing trillions, and the back door in the US Treasury for decades. Now, her tireless work on this subject has been published in a comprehensive report from Solari.com, "The Real Game of Missing Money" Volumes 1 and 2. Today James Corbett talks to Fitts about FASAB 56, the missing trillions and the financial coup d'état which has liquidated the wealth of the United States and shipped it out the back door.

    Question

    Amish buggy driver spotted rocking out to stereo, pounding beers



    Cops pulled over a horse and buggy in Ohio when they saw the two Amish men inside pounding beer as they rode — and found a massive rocking stereo system in the back, according to a report.

    The Trumbull County sheriff’s deputies in North Bloomfield also found a 12-pack of Michelob Ultras on top of the buggy with several open bottles inside, WKBN reported.

    The men — who come from a community that usually shuns high technology and avoids alcohol — fled into the trees as the deputies approached and left their horse behind to continue clopping down the road, deputies said.

    The buggy was towed and deputies found someone to take care of the horse until the owner comes forward.

    The Amish are a Christian group that originated with Anabaptist Swiss-Germans in 16th-century Europe. They are known for simple living, plain dress and reluctance to adopt modern conveniences like electronic speakers.

    While many Amish also shun booze, some members of the community have had legal problems with getting DUIs in their buggies.

    In April, a 21-year-old Amish man in Ohio ran a stop sign and admitted to drinking 10 beers after a police dashcam caught it on video.

    Reuben Yoder, 34, was arrested in June after he collided with a car at a Kentucky intersection while under the influence of alcohol, Bowling Green Daily News reported.

    Four Amish people were arrested for underage drinking in 2012 when their buggy crashed and other buggies traveling with them fled the scene, the Telegraph reported.

    That's kinda like what muslims (men mostly) do behind closed doors. All kinds of sin going on 'out of sight'.

    I'm not picking on muslims here, I've just witnessed some things as well as talked to many muslims I know and I lived in a muslim country for a couple months. Geraldine Brooks writes about it in Nine Parts of Desire.

    Well i don't necessarily see it in the terms of sinning (religious teachings), though i do see an ever growing mainstream global trend of younger people trying to escape the pressures of everyday life. The ever ricocheting up on the cost of living, not to mention the ongoing insane politics and social media trends - has left even old farts like myself uncomfortably numb ...

    The Amish story above is a unique example of it all, but even these communities have been drifting this way for decades ... In particular the Midwest (but U.S. as a whole) - whether it be opioid, meth, alcohol and vaping addictions etc etc ...

    Hence, Chrissie Hynde's haunting lyrics of 'Ay, oh, where ya go, Ohio' ?

    Brian Keating - Imagining the Impossible

    LegaliseFreedom1

    Brian Keating discusses the role of imagination and creativity in shaping the world around us and our future. As perhaps the most curious species on Earth, from the very beginning we have been driven to probe the mysteries of our planet, uncover its inner workings, and use this knowledge for our benefit. From this quest grew the many branches of human knowledge and expression, including science, religion, and art. But the commercialisation of science and art and the marginalisation of spirituality has led to a myopic, materialistic view of what can and what should be done in wider society, a situation exacerbated by the mainstream education system which churns out specialists or drone workers, often for jobs that are rapidly disappearing or already gone.

    More than ever, there is now an urgent need to reinvigorate imagination and creativity from the ground up, dissolving the artificial barriers between fields of study, branches of knowledge, and modes of thinking. The extent to which this can or will be achieved will have an enormous impact on how we face and attempt to deal with the huge political, social, economic, and environmental challenges facing humanity. Endless human progress is by no means guaranteed, and if we are to overcome our most pressing problems, we will need to test the limits of our imagination and of the possible like never before.
