Ron Paul Vs. Paul Krugman

By Greg Hunter’s

I don’t know how many of you saw this last week, but it is worth watching.  It is a showdown between Congressman Ron Paul and Nobel-Prize winning economist Paul Krugman. Things must be getting pretty bad for Mr. Krugman to agree to a live debate with a guy who wants to end the Federal Reserve as we know it.  The Fed has a monopoly, and Paul wants to break it up.  This is no accident.  This debate must be a message the powers that be want to get out to the public.  (more…)

Charles Biderman, CEO Trim Tabs Investment Research

By Greg Hunter’s 

The most underreported story this week is the European debt crisis.  Greece, Portugal and Ireland have all been in the spotlight with money troubles. Now, Spain is taking center stage, and its debt is more than double the previous three countries.

There has been one bailout after another.  Nothing is working as many EU countries plunge into recession.  (more…)

The Illusion of an Economic Recovery

By Greg Hunter’s  (Revised)

Last Friday, the government reported the gross domestic product (GDP) number for the first quarter, and it was 2.2%.  That was .8% lower than the 4th quarter’s 3% growth rate.  It was a big disappointment because most economists were expecting growth numbers closer to the 3% range.  (more…)

Weekly News Wrap-Up 4.27.12

By Greg Hunter’s 

The mainstream media is constantly pushing the so-called “recovery” story, and this week was no exception.  On Wednesday, Federal Reserve Chief Ben Bernanke raised his forecast for growth and said the economy was improving.  Really?  Bernanke reaffirmed near zero percent interest rates through 2014 and said, this week, that more bond buying or money printing “remain very much on the table.”  (more…)

Gold Will Win Money War

By Greg Hunter’s 

It was recently reported that countries like China and India are going to buy Iranian oil with gold.  Jim Sinclair of said this week, “The implications of China paying for Iranian oil in gold is the most important event in the modern history of gold.”  (more…)

Case Shiller: Housing Prices Down Again

By Greg Hunter’s 

Housing prices are back to where they were in late 2002 according to the latest Case-Shiller report that tracks housing prices.  February data shows 15 of 20 cities surveyed showed price declines.  Overall, the prices sank 3.5% annually.  Atlanta fared the worst with a 17.3% year over year fall in home prices.  Phoenix was one of the few bright spots with a 3.3% increase.    (more…)

Tony Robbins’ Dire Wake-Up Warning

Tony Robbins

By Greg Hunter’s 

Tony Robbins is known for motivational speaking.  This man is the king of positive thought, and it is hard to argue with his success.  I have known people who have gone to his seminars and had some life changing results.  So, when I heard Robbins’ dire warnings on this video he did three weeks ago, it really made me sit up and take notice.  (more…)

Numb to Bad News

What is happening feels like a slow motion train wreck to me.  I am waiting for someone to flip a switch and turn it to real speed.  It’s as if people are numb to the bad news.  The mainstream media (MSM) won’t report it, and if they do, it is spun to look like something good is going on.  For example, the FDIC announced the 17th bank of the year failed last Friday.  The MSM doesn’t even bother reporting this ongoing disaster.  (more…)

By Greg Hunter’s 

Talks, last weekend, in Turkey over Iran’s nuclear program have produced yet another round of discussions in Iraq scheduled for about this time next month.  The West wants Iran to stop enriching uranium and shut down its not-so-secret underground facility.  Nothing but a new round of talks May 23rd has been agreed upon.  (more…)

Goldman Sachs Never Misses an Opportunity

Europe is in deep financial trouble and, for most, this will mean hardship, austerity and financial ruin. There are some who see this out-of-control sovereign debt crisis as an opportunity to gain power and control. It appears that the Goldman Sachs bankers and alumni look to better themselves on the backs of EU taxpayers. Ellen Brown, from, has written a wonderful piece on what she is calling a “bankers’ coup.” Please enjoy this well written and well sourced post.—Greg Hunter— (more…)

Bottom-Bouncing Economy

Economy Recovering or a Bottom-Bouncing EconomyBy Greg Hunter’s 

“Bottom-bouncing” is the term John Williams of uses consistently to describe the true state of the economy.  The mainstream media would like you to believe that with every slight uptick in the economy, we have hit bottom and are in a so-called “recovery.”  The upticks are reported with wild enthusiasm, while the downticks are brushed over.  (more…)

Do Not Underestimate Silver’s True Value

Silver looks like it has been in holding pattern for months.  Traders call this range bound.  There is plenty of evidence out there to make a strong case that silver prices are being manipulated and suppressed.  The suppression game can’t go on forever, and many say it will end sooner than later.  When that happens prices are going higher, much higher.  Chris Duane from has a new video out called “Silver in Perspective.”  It is well worth taking the time to watch.—Greg Hunter– (more…)

Buffett Rule Hypocrisy

By Greg Hunter’s 

It looks like President Barack Obama is making the tax proposal called the Buffett Rule (also known as the “Paying a Fair Share Act”) into a wedge issue.  This weekend, the President was pushing the tax proposal, named after billionaire Warren Buffett, as a way to reduce the deficit.   The pending legislation says anyone making more than $1 million a year should pay no less than 30% federal tax.   (more…)

This is **** Creek

By Greg Hunter’s 

The biggest story not in the news is the upcoming meeting, this weekend, in Turkey about Iran’s nuclear program.  The U.S. is meeting with Iran along with Britain, Germany, France, Russia and China.  It is nothing short of an attempt to avoid World War III.  Sanctions from the West against Iran are ratcheting up, while Iran retaliates by cutting off oil to Europe.  I cannot see an amicable end to this gathering of world powers.  I hope I am totally wrong.   (more…)

Gold Rising

Gold was on a tear this week, and there are more up days to come.  The reasons for the rally in the yellow metal are numerous.  A few are:  Europe is a mess, Iran war draws closer and U.S. economy is not in a so-called “recovery.”  Do you think the Fed will print more bailout money in a presidential election year?  Gold is rising because it has no place else to go.  (more…)
