High Alert on North Korea, Economy Down Again and Trump Tax Plan

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (WNW 281 4.28.17)

Secretary of State Tillerson and other top U.S. officials have issued a dire warning on North Korea. In a press release this week, the Trump Administration says, “North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear weapons is an urgent national security threat and top foreign policy priority.”  This release was issued after a White House briefing to 100 Senators that detailed the possible threat.  Another ominous sign was the test firing of an unarmed ICBM at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.  Meanwhile, North Korea has been making provocative videos showing a military nuclear strike on the United States and also a live fire drill with North Korean artillery.  Many of North Korea’s artillery can easily reach Seoul, South Korea.

Trump Feel Good Financial Narrative Crumbling-Craig Hemke

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Financial writer Craig Hemke is looking beneath the pie in the sky high stock market to the shaky foundation that is trying to hold up the so called “Trump Bump.” Hemke says the “generally accepted narrative” is failing and points out, “If we go back a couple Fridays ago, the March employment report was terrible.  It was something like 88,000 jobs.  The latest other data on inflation is coming in negative, not just below expectations, but negative inflation.  So, this whole generally accepted narrative is crumbling.  The other part of it was higher interest rates and a stronger dollar.  The dollar is down 3% or 4% year-to-date.  So, that ain’t working too well.  (more…)

Captains of Dollar Are Panicked-Bill Holter

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)

Market expert and financial writer Bill Holter says elite were in a “panic” last week to try to push down the price of gold and silver. Holter explains, “You have to understand that gold is the direct competitor versus the dollar.  Other currencies in the world compete with the dollar, but the dollar is the reserve currency.  It supplanted gold in 1971.  Gold and the dollar are direct competitors or arch enemies, or whatever you want to call them.  The best way to make the dollar look good is to make gold look bad.  That’s what the purpose of all these naked sales or contracts are to suppress the price (of gold and silver).   That’s the purpose of it. . . . Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday were three big sales back to back to back, which shows the captains of the dollar are panicking.  The dollar definitely looks like its rolling over and has been taking some fairly sizable drops intraday.”

North Korea Threat Turns Hot, FBI & CIA Look for Traitor, Economic Update

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (WNW 280 4.21.17)

North Korea made the most provocative and dangerous threat yet through the state media when it said Kim Jong-Un may order a “super-mighty preemptive strike” against South Korea and the U.S. The U.S. says it is sending an armada to deal with the provocation. China and Russia, which both border North Korea, reportedly have deployed troops there. The threat is the worst ever for the Korean Peninsula as the North now has nuclear weapons that it did not have in the Korean War in the early 1950’s.

Stocks & Dollar Crash-Gold & Silver Spike-Bo Polny

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Market cycle analyst Bo Polny says he may have been wrong in the past about a stock market top, but now the top is in and predicts, “As of March 1st (2017), we believe the stock market, the Dow, the S&P, and all the world markets for that matter, are supposed to have topped and from this point forward, we are supposed to see a very ugly April.”

Strong Dollar Could Cause Bond Market Crash-Martin Armstrong

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Renowned financial expert Martin Armstrong says the biggest risk out there is the effect a strong U.S. dollar has on the global bond market. Armstrong explains, “There’s these people who keep saying the dollar is going to crash.  If the dollar crashes, the world is happier and basically celebrating.  You have half the U.S. debt equivalent in emerging market debt issued in dollars.  If the dollar goes up, they are in trouble.  Then you are going to see sovereign defaults. . . . The U.S. is not going to default, but as you start defaults elsewhere outside the country, it makes people begin to get concerned about sovereign debt.  Sovereign debt is the worst of all.  It’s not secured.  If the U.S. government defaulted on its debt, what would happen?  You cannot go down to the National Gallery and start lifting Picassos.”

Grand Goal Is War-Gregory Mannarino

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Analyst/trader Gregory Mannarino says war should figure into any investment strategy because one is coming. Mannarino says, “It should be clear to people that we are now at a pivotal moment. . . . Whenever the economy in the United States starts to get shaky, unfortunately, we seem to escalate into new wars, and I think that is where we are going.  We have spoken about this in the past.  This is their grand goal.  War is the goal.  War has always been the goal.  We are already in it, and I really believe this war started a while ago.  It’s now really starting to come into the public light, and now we are in the propaganda war.  This is what goes on at the beginning of every major engagement.”

First Ever Global Government Crash Coming-Clif High

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com “Early Sunday Release” 

Internet data mining expert Clif High uses what he calls “predictive linguistics” to spot trends and make predictions for future events. In his latest in-depth report, High sees a “huge” calamity coming for humanity.  Clif High explains, “There is all kinds of data for money and lack of money and lack of funding and all kinds of emotions around this.  There are hints in the data that something huge is coming for August and September that is being exposed by the language now.  I think it’s a bond crash or not a bond crash because I don’t know how that works.  It’s not a stock market crash.  The data I am looking at now says the stock market is not meaningful.  We may lose 50 cents on every dollar in the stock market in just a few days, but it’s meaningless.  It won’t make any difference at all to anybody according to what the data is showing me because the real crisis is in the crash of government.”

Trump Attacks Syria, Spying on Trump Worse than Watergate, Fed Dumping Debt

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (WNW 279 4.7.17) 

The “War Card” has been flipped over as President Trump orders an attack on Syria. The attack came as a response to the chemical weapons attack in Syria allegedly by the Assad regime.  Not everyone is buying the story it was Assad that ordered a gas attack on his own people.  Former Congressman Ron Paul thinks it was a false flag to get the U.S. to make a move against Assad.  Now, the U.S. foreign policy in Syria has gone from destroying ISIS to removing Bashar al-Assad from power in Syria.  Russia will surely weigh in.  Will the Russians stand by and allow Assad to be attacked and removed by the U.S.?

Debt Based System Running Out of Steam-Paul Craig Roberts

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Former Assistant Treasury Secretary in the Reagan Administration, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, sees trouble for the economy. Dr. Roberts explains, “This image of a strong stock market is based essentially on debt, borrowing and debt, money creation and debt.  It’s a false signal that shows prosperity, and it’s not really there. . . . So, during a period of time when there has been no interest income on peoples’ savings in the form of bonds or CDs, there has also been no growth in Social Security income.  So, the elderly, or the largest block of them, are hard pressed.  The young come out of school with student debt and no good jobs.  A large percentage can’t find sufficient employment to support an independent existence.  They can’t possibly pay off the loans.  So, wherever you look, you see a debt based system that’s running out of steam.”

Money Riots Coming in Next Financial Collapse-James Rickards

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)

Financial expert and four time, best-selling book author James Rickards says there is no avoiding another economic collapse. Every time the economy suffers a setback, such as recently hitting a $20 trillion debt ceiling in the United States Congress, things get a little worse. Rickards explains, “The point of my books, ‘The Death of Money’ and my more recent book ‘The Road to Ruin,’ is that these are like snowflakes building up to cause an avalanche.  The avalanche is the instability of the financial system as a whole.  The concentrations of assets among the banks, the interconnectedness of the system, and almost a $1 quadrillion, not $1 trillion, $1 quadrillion, that’s a $1,000 trillion of notional value of derivatives, all these things are unstable.  What does it take to cause that avalanche?  What does it take to cause a loss of confidence in the system?  (more…)

Surveillance on Trump Backfires, Russian Collusion False Narrative, Are Markets Topping

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (WNW 278 3.31.17)

The pile of felonies against people in the Deep State that illegally released classified information, for the purpose of embarrassing and destroying the incoming Trump Administration, keep stacking up. This crime is orders of magnitude worse that Watergate.  The White House invited leaders of Congress to see documents from whistleblowers that point to improper handling of Intel surrounding the Trump team.

Obamacare is the Reason for Anemic Growth-Karl Denninger

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Analyst and entrepreneur Karl Denninger predicted years ago that Obamacare would “kill the economy” and “eventually implode.” Today, the first quarter GDP came in at just .9%, and Denninger contends Obamacare is part of the reason the economy is so anemic. Denninger says, “Since the crash in 2008, we’ve had 2% GDP expansion roughly on an average basis, and you are trying to expand the growth of one program in the government by 8.5%, and that’s not going to work. This is the problem you have. What Obamacare has done has caused the 2% expansion. . . . So, what has happened here is we have taken this program and crammed these costs into the economy on a mandated basis, and the result is the productivity expansion has gone into the toilet.”

Trump is America’s Last Chance-John Williams

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)

Economist John Williams says President Trump has to do something fast and big to turn the faltering U.S. economy around. Williams explains, “You are seeing the economy slow down.  Some people are recognizing that.  The Fed’s statement a week or two ago . . . many analysts consider that dovish.  The Fed knows what’s going on here.  They are trying to get rates up a little, but they have a circumstance that they are not out of the woods with the banks.  What they are hoping for is maybe the Trump Administration is going to bail them out and stimulate the economy.”

Spying Lying Exposed-Trump Proven Right, Economy Tanking, North Korea Update

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (3.24.17 WNW 277) 

Donald Trump was mocked by the mainstream media (MSM) for saying Obama “wiretapped” or spied on Trump and his top advisors. This week, Trump was proven 100% correct when information came out that President-elect Trump and his transition team were, in fact, wrapped up in government surveillance.  Information was illegally leaked to the press, and identities were illegally “unmasked” to discredit and embarrass the incoming President and his team.  This makes Watergate look like a squirt gun fight, and this investigation is now set to reveal “smoking gun” proof that the Obama Administration was involved in illegal activity.  This investigation is far from over and could directly implicate former President Obama.
