Jon Stewart and the Fiscal Cliff

By Greg Hunter’s

I don’t know about you, but I’m already sick of the so-called “Fiscal Cliff” battle in Congress. That’s the mandatory concoction of tax increases and spending cuts that kick in January 1st if Democrats and Republicans can’t reach a compromise.   Comedian Jon Stewart gave his perspective recently on “The Daily Show.”  I thought he dished the dirt pretty evenly between both parties.  (more…)

Weekly News Wrap-Up 11.30.12

By Greg Hunter’s 

The two big issues, this week, are the U.S. debt deal and the Middle East.  The debt deal that everyone thinks was in the bag looks like it is nowhere near a done deal.  It all comes down to which parties’ base will be hurt the most.  For the Republicans, it’s tax increases.  In this case, they want to close loopholes and raise a trillion bucks over 10 years.  It’s not a lot of money, but I guess it’s a start.  (more…)

Climate of Fraud, Negligence, Incompetence and JP Morgan

By Greg Hunter’s 

I was thinking about titling this post “Fire Jamie Dimon.”  I changed my mind because this article is much, much bigger than Mr. Dimon.  This is really an article about the current climate of fraud, negligence and incompetence that is accepted as the new normal.  Dimon and JP Morgan Chase are just the larger-than-life faces of the profound problems that are not getting fixed.  (more…)

Gaza-Israel Fighting, Fiscal Cliff and Debt Ceiling to Infinity

Greg Hunter’s  Weekly News Wrap-Up 11/23/12

A cease-fire was announced earlier this week in the Gaza-Israeli conflict.  Fighting lasted longer than a week and claimed the lives of 140 Palestinians.  Israel counted five dead and more than a dozen wounded.  It is not the “durable outcome” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was seeking, but at least the bloodshed stopped.  The only question is how long will it be before the shooting starts again.  (more…)

Hyperinflation and Complete Collapse – Nick Barisheff

By Greg Hunter’s 

Asset manager Nick Barisheff says, “There’s never been a fiat currency in history that didn’t end in hyperinflation and complete collapse.”  Barisheff thinks that Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s most recent call to have an “unlimited debt ceiling” for the U.S. was “just telling the truth.”  That’s essentially what we have now with “open-ended” money printing by the Fed.  Barisheff adds, “All it’s doing is postponing a problem . . . it makes it bigger and eventually it blows up.”  (more…)
