There were new all-time highs on the Dow and S&P 500 this week.  Of course, the mainstream media didn’t mention a word about how the Fed’s “open-ended” $85 billion a month bond buying program helped push the stock market to new highs.  Maybe that’s why even some of the folks on CNBC called the market “creepy.”    (more…)

We are in a Fiat Currency Bubble-James Turk

James Turk: Gold Will Reach $11,000 an Ounce in the Next Five YearsBy Greg Hunter’s 

Gold expert James Turk says, “Mr. Bernanke is so anti-deflation he’s willing to risk hyperinflation, and we are on this path of hyperinflation given the policies we are following.”  Turk contends gold is a good value right now.  Turk says, “Because it is money outside the banking system, it doesn’t have any counterparty risk, and that is very important as this crisis continues to unfold.”   Turk predicts, “Either we cut back on spending or the dollar is going to collapse. . . . Those are the two choices.”    (more…)

The answer is NO.  The president cannot kill Americans on U.S. soil with a drone attack who are not engaged in combat.  It took a gutsy 13 hour filibuster from Senator Rand Paul and some other Republican and Democratic Senators to get that answer from the White House.  When liberal Democrat Ron Wyden joined the Republicans, it became very hard to blow it off as partisan politics.   (more…)

What Happens if U.S. Doesn’t Cut Spending?

Government Spending Cuts 2013: What Happens if the U.S. Doesn’t Cut Spending?Greg Hunter’s 

Everybody is talking about the cuts in government spending with the $85 billion in forced spending cuts in military and social programs.  $85 billion amounts to little more than a 2% cut in $3.8 trillion (or $3,800 billion) in federal spending per year.  Didn’t most working Americans just suffer a 2% pay cut with the expiration of the Social Security tax holiday?  (more…)
