Confiscation of Gold and Silver Coins Will Not Happen

By Greg Hunter’s 

People ask me on a consistent basis if I think the government will confiscate their gold and silver coins if times get rough.  I feel there is little chance of this happening, and here’s why.  Gold and silver coins are predominantly held by the wealthy (especially gold).  (more…)

By Greg Hunter’s 

President Obama attacked the Supreme Court, this week, over his health care bill.  The nation’s highest court is deciding if a law, known as “Obama Care,” is constitutional.  It would force all Americans to buy insurance under threat of fine or penalty.  The President said that he hoped the court would not overturn the law.  (more…)

Budget War Threatens America’s Survival

The Republican Budget War Threatens America’s SurvivalGreg Hunter’s USA 

President Barak Obama gave a speech to newspaper executives about the recently passed Republican budget in the House of Representatives.  It proposes to cut spending by more than $5 trillion over the next ten years.  Yesterday’s speech was, basically, a declaration of war against the GOP and its vision of the government’s budget.  (more…)

Car Sales Up, Economy Fixed—Not

By Greg Hunter’s 

There was good news for the car industry today.  Just about every car company sales in March were up and in double digits.  The car industry hasn’t seen this kind of monthly performance in nearly four years.  (more…)

Mainstream Media Power to Indict or Ignore: Obama's Birth Certificate

Obama’s Birth Certificate

By Greg Hunter’s 

About a month ago, renowned Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio made an astounding claim in a public press conference, “A six month long investigation conducted by my cold case posse has lead me to believe there is probable cause to believe that President Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate released by the White House on April 27, 2011, is a computer-generated forgery,” said Arpaio.  The Maricopa County Sheriff claimed President Obama’s Hawaiian selective-service card was, also, “most likely a forgery.”  (more…)

Financial Collapse by 2015, $5 Gas and More: Weekly News Wrap-UpBy Greg Hunter’s 

A budget has been passed in the House of Representatives by the Republicans that cut $5.3 trillion over the next 10 years.  Can it pass the Senate where the Democrats are in control?  Probably not, and that means we are back to the fight of spending reductions by Republicans and tax increases by the Democrats.  It’s election year politics at its finest.  The budget proposed by President Obama was unanimously defeated in the House.  (more…)

Cartoons Explain Fed Chief’s Actions

By Greg Hunter’s 

The folks at Reachwest News Networks (RNN) had some really interesting cartoons, this week, explaining the words and actions of Fed Chief Ben Bernanke.  Bernanke hinted this week at more money printing (QE3).  There is also a new lecture series where Bernanke is basically bashing gold and a gold standard.  (more…)

Recovery? Housing says it’s a Hoax

By Greg Hunter’s 

Watching the financial channels yesterday, I could not tell you how many times the word “recovery” was used.   Sure, the stock market is up, but that is compliments of the Federal Reserve.  Since the 2008 financial meltdown, we’ve had a money printing extravaganza.  There was QE1, QE2, Operation Twist, dollar swaps with Europe and 0% interest rates (on a key rate) through 2014.  Of course the stock market is up, it loves free money.  (more…)

Could U.S. Dollar take Big Hit by Summer?

By Greg Hunter’s  There are plenty of reasons why the U.S. dollar is under downward pressure.  There have been massive bailouts of the global banking system by the Federal Reserve, exploding deficits and a movement globally to move away from doing business in dollars.  Now, there is a new threat, and it is being pushed by U.S. foreign policy with Iran.  (more…)

More Bad News for the Dollar

Greg Hunter’s

Buying gasoline these days has turned into a horror show.  I filled up my car and handed the attendant a $50 bill to turn the pump on.  I had a little more than a quarter of a tank.  So, I thought that would do the trick and peg the needle past full with change to spare.  I was wrong.  I stood in shock as the pump rolled right past $40 and up to $50.  The car (which is a Buick Lacrosse) was still not quite full.  I thought, $50 is not enough to fill up a standard size car with already more than a quarter of a tank?  (more…)

Military Coup in China, Russian Special Forces in Syria, NDRP & MoreBy Greg Hunter’s 

The top story on the USA Today Newspaper was titled “NFL’s Big Hit.”  I could not believe this was their lead.  This week, there were several stories that I think should have taken its place as the single most important thing Americans should know about.  (more…)

Dollar Quietly and Continually Under Attack

Greg Hunter’s 

If you listen to the mainstream media, you would think that we are in a recovery and the future of the U.S. dollar’s reign as world reserve currency is not in jeopardy.  But a look on alternative news sites tells a different story.  The dollar is quietly under attack, and the latest assault comes from Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (aka BRICS) who want to start a joint bank.  The dollar (as a reserve currency) does not really benefit the BRICS, but it is a necessary evil for international trade—at the moment.  (more…)

It’s All About Control

National Defense Resources Preparedness - NDRP OrderBy Greg Hunter’s  (Revised)

Ever since the original Patriot Act was passed by Congress in 2001, American civil liberties have steadily shrunk and government control has steadily grown.  In a financial crisis, your bank or brokerage can severely restrict the amount of money you can withdraw from your accounts.  The government can now assassinate so-called terrorists anywhere in the world, including on U.S. soil.    (more…)

Nigel Farage Strikes Again

By Greg Hunter’s

I suspect most of the Members of the European Parliament really despise Nigel Farage.  Farage  represents the United Kingdom, and even though the UK is a member of the EU, it does not use the Euro as its currency.  Farage is a straight talking truth-teller and says things about the latest Greek bailout such as (more…)
