Only three stories in the Weekly News Wrap-Up, but they all have something in common.  They all will have cascading effects that will go on for some time to come.  First up, the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 over Eastern Ukraine.  Nearly 300 people are dead; and of that total, nearly two dozen are reportedly U.S. citizens.  Everybody is pointing the finger at the other side.  The Ukrainians say it’s Russia’s fault.  The Pro-Russian separatists say it’s Ukraine’s fault, and so does Russia.  No matter whose fault it is, new sanctions and war tensions are mounting.    (more…)

Economist John Williams says to forget about the so-called recovery.  What’s coming next is recession or worse.  Williams contends, “The fact that we saw a -2.9% contraction in the first quarter, in official reporting . . . you know the economy is in real bad shape.  It’s continued to the second quarter, and that will gain recognition as all the data gets published.”  (more…)

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

John Rubino, author of the new book “The Money Bubble,” can sum up the ongoing global financial problems in a single phrase: “There is too much debt.” Rubino goes on to say, “Debt works the same way for a country as it works for an individual or a family, which is to say if you borrow too much, then your life basically craters. Everything gets harder to do, and you end up doing things in order to deal with your past mistakes that you would never do normally. You start trying absolutely crazy things, and that’s where the world’s governments are right now. . . . (more…)

Iraq is the top story, and the crisis there is boiling over.  At its core, this is a religious war between the Sunni and Shia Muslims.  One big problem–the U.S. has armed and supported both sides.  We have sent military advisors to help the Shia majority government that is being helped by Iran.  ISIS was armed in part by the U.S. in Syria; and, now, the Obama Administration is asking Congress for $500 million to aid the so-called rebels in Syria.  (more…)

President Obama is sending 300 military advisors to Iraq.  This is the ultimate lose-lose scenario.  Remember I told you Iran was already there, and the U.S. would be helping Iran defend Iraq.  Well, it’s happening.  Obama does not want to attack the ISIS or ISIL forces that have come down from Syria, and he does not want the Iranians to defend Iraq and gain influence.  (more…)
