Moody’s dropped a bomb on global banks this week. It handed out credit rating cuts to 15 of the biggest banks in the western world.

By Greg Hunter’s 

Forget about the outcome of the Greek elections.  The only thing that matters, according to Karl Denninger of, is math.   Denninger thinks, “The powers that be are lying about the solvency of institutions and this is doomed to fail.”

Forget about the Greek Elections because, in the end, Greece still has to pay its bills.  There probably will not be any one party that will get enough votes to garner a majority, but the anti-bailout party is gaining ground.  Spain is the latest bailout casualty, but it is all a sign of a system in a tailspin of insolvency.  (more…)

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

By Greg Hunter’s 

There has been plenty of calamitous news surrounding the European debt crisis.  Greece is insolvent.  Spain just got a big bank bailout, and Ireland wants a new bailout deal.  No matter how bad it looks in the EU, Paul Craig Roberts says the problems in Europe are “nowhere near as big as the ones here.”  The U.S. is printing massive amounts of money to paper over the mess, but it won’t work.  Roberts says a collapse of the U.S. dollar could happen at any moment.   (more…)

The UN says that civil war in Syria is “imminent.”  It looks to me it’s been imminent for months.  More than 9,000 people have been killed in the uprising which, at its core, is a fight between Shia and Sunni.  That’s the Hatfields and McCoys to you and me.  There is mounting pressure from the U.S. calling for regime change, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton echoed that call, again, this week.  (more…)

Bank Insolvency: Will Fed Printing Press Try to Save Europe?By Greg Hunter’s 

You know things are heating up when the banks start with scare tactics.  In Greece, the bankers are in full court press to sway voters for next month’s election.  Reuters reported yesterday, “In a report released ahead of an election on June 17 that may determine whether the country stays in the single currency, the country’s biggest bank said the risk of Athens exiting the euro was no longer just a theoretical possibility, warning that the fallout from such a move would be dramatic.  (more…)
