There were lots of fireworks at the United Nations this week.  Yesterday, the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, was drawing a red line of his own on a crude picture of a bomb.  Don’t laugh, because he was really talking to the U.S. audience in illustrating his point that Iran is getting close to building a nuclear bomb.  It was simple but effective.  (more…)

Gold is a Currency

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

We have long been told that gold is a commodity–that it is no different than a bushel of corn or a barrel of oil.  In many newspapers, it is listed under the commodity section.   With the advent of the Federal Reserve’s recent announcement of “unlimited” Quantitative Easing (QE) or money printing, that has changed.  The view of gold as a commodity has circled back to what banker JP Morgan proclaimed to Congress in 1913, “Gold is money and nothing else.”   Many folks in the blogosphere have long agreed with the original JP Morgan.  (more…)

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

I just want to focus on two stories today: the Federal Reserve’s latest round of money printing and the Middle East.  Let’s start with the Fed’s announcement.  It will print money and spend it buying $40 billion a month in sour debt.  It says it is to keep interest rates low and to spur employment, but it’s much more about a continued bailout of the big banks.  (more…)

That should evolve into hyperinflation.”   Williams, “Doesn’t see the current system holding together without hyperinflation beyond 2014.”  He contends the real annual deficit is “$5 trillion per year” and says, “That’s beyond containment.”  (more…)

Ron Paul Tribute

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

I cannot believe Congressman Ron Paul is completely finished with politics.  I thought he would run third party, of course, he did not.  Could he run when he’s 80 in 2016?  Probably not, but I bet his son, Senator Rand Paul does.  If so, I’ll bet father Paul will help out on the campaign trail.  Dr. Paul is a man if integrity who never sold out the country.  In this day and age that is a rare trait in Congress.  Please enjoy the video below: (more…)
