Everybody is Trying to Postpone the Inevitable-Axel Merk

Alex MerkBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Money manager Axel Merk says, “I am very concerned about Russia.  I am very concerned about what is happening with Ukraine.  The problems we have there and in Europe, and in Japan and in the U.S., are we cannot balance our budgets.  Ukraine would not be in the situation it is in if it could, if it were able to balance its books.  That’s just the symptom and it exhibits differently.  (more…)

WNW 176 Middle East War, Ukraine War, Economic Calamity Coming

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (2/6/15) 

Everybody has seen the horrifying video of the Jordanian pilot being burned alive by the Islamic State.  I want to concentrate on why these Islamic radicals did this, and did it in a slickly produced video.  I think these terrorists wanted to make sure the world could clearly see and hear this horrible act to get people riled up for war.  (more…)

Gold is Gone, Total Chaos Coming-Bill Holter

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Financial writer Bill Holter says there is better than 60% to 70% chance that another financial calamity will hit in 2015, and it could start from anywhere in the world.  Holter contends, “It doesn’t really matter where it starts.  It will probably be global within less than 48 hours.  The reality is it will go all the way around the world within two days because party “A” will not pay party “B” who doesn’t pay party “C” and on and on we will go.  The payment chain will break.

World War III Has Started-Gregory Mannarino

Greg MannarinoBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Analyst and trader Gregory Mannarino says, “We are deeply engaged in an economic war against Russia.  This is a collective collusion that is very scary.  We just found out the OPEC nations have increased their production of oil despite the fact that we’ve seen crude oil fall 60% or more from its high.  Does that make any sense?  This should not happen.  They are going to increase production when the price is falling off a cliff.  OPEC has made it clear for many years now they think $100 a barrel is a fair price.  This is being done on purpose to punish the Russian economy.  This is economic warfare 101, and it’s going to lead to a shooting war.  Not only is it going to lead to a shooting war, this is the grand plan.

WNW175-Financial War and Shooting War Intensifying-No Real Recovery, Obama Veto

4finBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (1.30.15)

War is what I am going to concentrate on in this Weekly News Wrap-Up.  There is no doubt a massive financial war is going on right now.  If this keeps up, it will only lead to a shooting war and a very big one at that.  The EU wants to put another round of sanctions on Russia, and get this, Greece is signaling it will veto that action.  So, not only does the recently elected Greece leadership want debt forgiveness, it also looks like it is going to side with Russia over more sanctions.  (more…)

Climate Change is Global Communist Tyranny-Lord Christopher Monckton

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Lord Christopher Monckton says the “climate change” issue is really a way to gain control of the world.  Lord Monckton, former award winning journalist who was once an advisor to Margaret Thatcher, contends, “This is a story that has been grossly, I mean grossly, oversold.  They have exaggerated beyond all reason.  Just this week, I’ve had a major paper published in the Science Bulletin of the Chinese Academy of Science which gives the reasons why they got it wrong.  We went into their wretched climate models and took them apart.  We’ve found what they did wrong, and we exposed it.  The left have gone ballistic.”

Lawless Leaders Changing the World-Catherine Austin Fitts

7By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (Early Sunday Release)

Financial expert Catherine Austin Fitts says the world is changing through crime by our leaders.  Fitts contends, “We are dealing with a lawlessness that is happening with the build out of the global systems, which is very ugly.  If you look at what has happened to the Ukraine, so far, over a million people have lost their homes.  That’s pretty lawless. The fighting is getting very, very painful.  (more…)

WNW 174-Middle East War Coming, Iran Russia Unite, Ferguson Cop Cleared

Several top stories are all coming out of the Middle East, and they all show war is approaching.  Yemen has fallen into the hands of Islamic radicals, and there is total chaos and anarchy in the country which now has no formal government.  This is an ominous development as it borders Saudi Arabia where staunch U.S. ally, King Abdullah, just died.  (more…)

Free Markets Have Been Completely Obliterated-Michael Pento

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Money manager Michael Pento says, “We live in a world now where free markets have been completely obliterated.  You can’t find a free market left on the planet, and that goes for commodities, equity markets, currencies and particularly goes for the bond markets.  The bond markets now do not represent any vestige of reality whatsoever.  That should be apparent to anyone with a pulse or an IQ better than a retarded ameba.”

We Are in a Financial Meltdown-Nomi Prins

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

Best-selling author and financial expert Nomi Prins says, “We are in a financial meltdown.  I said 9 or 10 months ago, it hadn’t happened yet, but it should happen because of the instability of a system that is supported by central bank maneuvers and not really anything organic and leveraging and reaching for yields in places like oil and natural gas and other places on the virtue of cheap money. . . . It kind of boggles the mind.  This QE is epic.  It’s historic.  It is larger and more insane that ever in history.  It is pan-global.  The reason that things have kind of stayed in place is because there was enough cheap money coming into the system and enough corporations getting it . . . that really kept the markets artificially buoyed by virtue of this cheap money coming  in.  (more…)

WNW-173 Swiss Franc & Euro Decouple, Russia Cuts Gas, Road to WWIII

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com   (1.16.15) 

My top story is Switzerland and the surprise move to remove its cap against the Euro.  This cap kept the two currencies roughly the same value–but not anymore.  The move was such a surprise that even IMF Chief Christine Lagarde admitted the move by Swiss National bank (SNB) caught her off guard.  It also caught currency traders by surprise as the Swiss franc soared by as much as 30%.  Gold also spiked on the news.    (more…)

Major War Exploding Soon-Charles Nenner

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Renowned analyst Charles Nenner says the biggest cycle he sees coming is the war cycle.  Nenner says, “For the last couple of years, I have been saying, in the second decade of the new century, we will have a big war.  Why, because there is a 100 year cycle.  If you go back 100 years to the first world war in 1914 to 1918, that led to the second world war.  That was actually one big war with peace in the middle.  It you go back 100 years before that, you get Napoleon. . . .

European Bank Runs Could Come to America-Laurence Kotlikoff

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

Boston University Economics Professor Laurence Kotlikoff says Greece is, once again, in financial trouble and that could set off another global financial calamity.  Dr. Kotlikoff contends, “So, you have the same problem.  You have a country that is fiscally unsustainable, and they haven’t really been able to get out from under that situation. . . . It sets up a situation where you could have runs on other banks like in Italy, Spain, Portugal, and that could spread to other banks in other countries, including France and Germany(more…)

WNW 172-Islamic Terror Spreads West, Oil Price Plunge, Declining Economy

The Head of MI 5, British security, is sounding the alarm that Islamic terrorists from Syria are planning more attacks on the West.  Andrew Parker says al-Qaeda fighters from Syria are planning mass casualty attacks against the West.  He was not specific on the targets, but an attack on the United Kingdom was highly likely according to Parker.  (more…)

Oil Derivatives Explosion Double 2008 Sub-Prime Crisis-David Morgan

David MorganBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Precious metals expert David Morgan says the plunge in oil prices is not good news for big Wall Street banks.  Morgan explains, “The amount of debt that is carried by the fracking industry at large is about double what the sub-prime was in the real estate fiasco in 2008.   In summary, we’re looking at an explosion in potential that is greater than the sub-prime market of 2008 because, number one, oil and energy are the most important sectors out there.  (more…)
