WNW 186-Senate Gets To Approve Iran Deal, Russia Sends Air Defense to Iran, Middle East Chaos Continues

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  

Congress is going to get a say in the upcoming deal to curtail Iran’s nuclear program.  Congress has a veto proof majority they will require the President to allow Congress to give its approval.  Just this weekend, the President said that the “GOP had overstepped in foreign affairs” according to the AP.  Of course, that is preposterous; and, meanwhile, the AP continues to push the idea of a so-called “emerging deal.”  There is no deal, and with Congress now involved, there is going to be no deal.  (more…)

Drought Number One Emergency in California-Ellen Brown

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Author and attorney Ellen Brown says the drought in California is dire.  NASA recently said that California has just one year of water left.  Brown says, “It was just declared our number one emergency. . . .It’s pretty shocking what is happening.  It’s our fourth year of drought.  The Governor just declared that all the cities must cut back 25% in water usage. . . . The water districts are being fined $10,000 for going over, and you can get a $500 fine for doing a 10 minute shower instead of a 5 minute shower.  They have smart meters that can show specifically how long your shower was, which is kind of scary in itself.”

Fall 2015 Turning Point-Civil Unrest and Riots-Martin Armstrong

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

Legendary financial analyst Martin Armstrong says the world is going to be hitting a major “turning point” this fall.  Armstrong says this is the end of a 300 year cycle and contends, “This appears to be a peak, as far as governments and bond markets are concerned, and from there, we are going to be turning down.  We are in a lot of trouble with most of these governments.  Our models say that by 2020, the amount of interest we pay . . . will exceed the entire defense budget.  So, this is pretty serious.”

WNW 185-Iran Nuke Deal Falls Apart, Will Fed Raise Interest Rates, Economy Getting Worse

5By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (4/10/15)

The deal to curtail Iran’s nuclear program is no deal at all.  How do I know this?  You just have to listen to the leadership in Iran.  The Ayatollah Khamenei has weighed in along with his subordinates, and they have said that the White House and the President are liars.  There is going to be no inspections of their military facilities, and they are not going to stop enriching uranium.  Also, the President said the sanctions would be lifted gradually as the Iranians complied with the deal, and Iran now says they demand sanctions be lifted at the signing of the deal; otherwise, there is NO DEAL.  They had me at “liar.”  (more…)

We’re Going to Step On a Mine before End of 2015-James Turk

James Turk #2By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Renowned Precious metals expert James Turk thinks this fall is going to be trouble for the U.S. dollar.  Turk explains, “I think that is the time frame we should be looking for, and there are a couple of reasons for this.  Every five years, the International Monetary Fund recalculates the “Special Drawing Rights,” the SDR. . . The Chinese have been quite clear over the last five years that they want to be included in the SDR when the next rewriting comes, and the next recalculation is scheduled for September and October.  (more…)

Financial writer Bill Holter says don’t expect the economy to get better anytime soon.  Holter says, “We’re probably in recession again . . . the economy has been quite weak.  It looks to me we could be breaking down in the stock market.  This is going to be a really critical week.”

WNW-184- Iran Nuke Deal or No Deal, Russia Threatens Nuke War, 0% GDP Growth, California Drought

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (4.3.15)

Looks like the U.S. and the rest of the major countries negotiating with Iran have a framework for a deal to curtail Iran’s nuclear program.  Let’s not call it a real deal.  Why?  Because this is only a so-called “framework,” and lots has to be agreed upon before it’s a real deal.  There are two big problems:  they are inspections of known and unknown sites, and Iran doesn’t have to dismantle any of its nuclear facilities.  (more…)

Fed Will Be Forced Not to Raise Interest Rates-Reggie Middleton

4

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Financial expert and trader Reggie Middleton says the Fed is “going to be forced not to raise interest rates.”  Middleton explains, “If they do raise rates, money is going to fly into the dollar.  The dollar is going to become even stronger relative the euro and Asian currencies.  Then you are also going to have a lot of pressure on U.S. corporates because any international business is going to take a significant hit.”  (more…)

Middle East Revolution & Inflationary Depression Coming-Paul Craig Roberts

1By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (Early Sunday Release)

Former Assistant Treasury Secretary Dr. Paul Craig Roberts thinks the Middle East violence is going to get much worse.  Dr. Roberts contends, “Unless the Islamic State somehow collapses, you are going to see a new wave of revolutionary developments in the Middle East.  I suspect all the oil dictatorships will be overthrown because there is a tiny handful of people we installed there and they are mega-billionaires, and there isn’t anybody else that’s got anything. . . . I think they are all headed down the drain.”

WNW 183-War in Yemen, Crazy Middle East US Policy, Iran Nuke Deal

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  3/27/15

This Wrap-Up will try to make sense of the nonsensical, crazy U.S. Middle East policy. We start in Yemen. Saudi Arabia and Egypt are getting ready for an invasion of Yemen. Saudi Arabia has already been bombing key positions of Iranian backed terrorists (also known as Houthi rebels). It was little more than six months ago that the President called Yemen a success in terms of fighting terror, but now the government has imploded, and al-Qaeda backed terrorists are fighting for control of the country with Iranian backed terrorists.

We Are All Trapped-Alasdair Macleod

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  

Finance and economic expert Alasdair Macleod sees a fragile global economy with many ways to crash.  Macleod starts in Europe with the euro currency, “We are looking at a currency which, at any moment, triggered by Greece or triggered by a butterfly in the jungle, could begin to unravel.  I actually think the lack of any history behind the euro is probably the worst thing that it has.  People can go off the euro incredibly quickly. . . . That is one area where it could happen. . . . Look what’s going on in Japan.  They are printing money, and its hyperinflation.  It is monetary hyperinflation which, at some stage, is going to be price hyperinflation.  It’s only a matter of time. . . .  I can’t find what’s good in the world.  (more…)

Next Crash Already Started-Bix Weir

Financial writer and analyst Bix Weir predicts, “When we have our next crash, and it is coming, I believe it will be here this year, and that’s my final conclusion.  I am looking around September, but I believe it has already started.  When it does come, people will have a different mindset because they have learned so much.  It won’t take too many people to stand in front of an ATM machine and not get their money to be really angry at these people who have rigged our markets and basically stolen our country over the last hundred years.”

WNW 182-Netanyahu & Coming War, Fed Confusion, Drought in West

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  3/20/15 

The big story this week is the election win of Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel, and the implications for the Middle East.  I predicted that the meddling Obama supporters were doing in Israel would backfire, and it did–big time.  Netanyahu won, so now what?  A Palestinian peace deal has moved to a back burner.  Some in the press have reported Netanyahu has cancelled the so-called two state solution to form a Palestinian state.  That is not really accurate.

Financial System Will Collapse Just a Matter of When-Laurence Kotlikoff

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Renowned economist Laurence Kotlikoff recently testified at the U.S. Senate about the runaway U.S. budget.  How bad is it?  Kotlikoff says, “I told them the real (2014) deficit was $5 trillion, not the $500 billion or $300 billion or whatever it was announced to be this year.  Almost all the liabilities of the government are being kept off the books by bogus accounting.
