Catherine Austin Fitts: The Red Button Story – The Disturbing Truth About The Role Dirty Money Plays In Our Economy (Video)

On Friday, I posted a video that included former United States Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development for Housing Catherine Austin Fitts being interviewed by Greg Hunter of  During that excellent interview that exposed Trump idolatry, Fitts mentioned The Red Button story that she put out 13 years ago.  So, it got me curious as to what the story was all about.  As far as I can tell, this video has only been viewed 24,000 times.  That’s just on YouTube so I’m sure there are probably more views depending on whether or not others downloaded and uploaded it to other places or whether her readers at Solari Report read it.  Nevertheless, many of you reading this have probably never heard the story and it is quite enlightening to see how easily people are controlled.

Fitts stated:

The Red Button. You never want to have an epiphany in the middle of a speech, but I did. In the summer of 2000, I spoke to a wonderful group of people called Spiritual Frontiers Foundation International. They have a conference once a year to talk about how they can help evolve our society spiritually. They are very dedicated, wonderful people.

A friend asked me to give a speech called ‘How the Money Works on Organized Crime’. In the middle of the speech, I described the fact that a reporter I was doing research for had been told by the Department of Justice that the US economy and the financial system laundered $500 billion to $1 trillion a year of all dirty money.

So I said to this wonderful group of spiritually evolved people, “What would happen if we stopped laundering $500 billion to $1 trillion a year of all dirty money?”

We had a little interaction, and they said, “Well, the stock market would go down because that money would leave and go to Hong Kong or Singapore or Zurich, and we would have trouble financing the government deficit because we would offend the people who control that money and the accumulated capital for years thereon. Our government checks might stop, or our taxes might go up.”

So I said, “Okay. Well, let’s pretend that there is a big red button up here on the lectern, and if you push that button, you can stop all hard narcotics trafficking in your community, your state, and your country tomorrow, thus offending the people who control $500 billion to $1 trillion of annual dirty money. Who here will push the button?”

Out of 100 people, only one would push the button. I said to the other 99, “Why would you not push the button?”

They said, “We don’t want our mutual funds and our IRAs to go down in price, we don’t want our government checks to stop, and we don’t want our taxes to go up.”

So that is what I call ‘The Red Button problem’. The Solari mission is about how do we turn the red button green. In other words, how do we make money pushing the red button because if we can make money pushing the red button, then we can push the red button?

Take a look.
