Frankenstein Debt Monster Has Peaked-Gregory Mannarino

4_jpgBy Greg Hunter’s  (Early Sunday Release)

Stock trader Gregory Mannarino says Greece is the tip of the debt iceberg.  Mannarino explains, “Never in history have we been so overwhelmed and buried underneath a mountain of debt.  I believe we are at a top in regard to the debt.  What does this mean?  We could see a domino effect where all this starts cascading down and correct to fair market value.  It will, whether it’s today, tomorrow or next week.  There is no way out of it, and that is what people need to keep in mind.”


Greece to Puerto Rico Unpayable Debt, More Phony Jobs, Drought and Floods

Whether it is Greece or Puerto Rico, the story is the same—the debt is unpayable.  Greece is going through a referendum and they are taking a que from the Clash song “Should I Stay or Should I Go.”  Meaning, should Greece stay or leave the European Union?  I say it is not going to make much difference.  The Greeks, as everybody else in the world, have been living beyond their means.  There are going to be big cuts to everything no matter what.  The Greeks want a debt cut.  The Greek Finance Minister says he’d rather “cut off his arm” than sign a bailout deal without a debt cut.  Now, folks in Spain and Italy are telling the IMF they, too, want a debt cut because the debt is unpayable.


New Recession Starts After Mid-Year-John Williams

New Recession Starts After Mid-Year-John WilliamsBy Greg Hunter’s

Economist John Williams correctly predicted the first quarter GDP in 2015 would turn negative.  What is his second quarter prediction for GDP?  Williams says, “I am looking for an outright contraction in the second quarter as well.  Two back to back negative quarters in the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) would be counted as a recession.  GDP is very heavily bloated and inflated by all sorts of gimmicks. . . . In effect, we are seeing a weakening of the economy now that is dragging down these bloated numbers.  I contend we never recovered from the collapse in 2008 and 2009.  We have just been bottom bouncing. . . . It is beginning to turn down again. . . . Expectations for the second quarter will begin to sink.”


Every Asset in a Bubble, Except Gold and Silver-Michael Pento

Every Asset in a Bubble, Except Gold and Silver-Michael PentoGreg Hunter’s 

Money manager Michael Pento thinks the Greek debt crisis is small when you consider the enormously leveraged global economy.  Pento contends, “That’s why I consider Greece as more of a distraction.  It’s a small piece to the puzzle.  You look at debt that extends all across the planet, every asset on the planet is in a bubble.  China is in a bubble.  Japan is in a bubble.  Europe is in a bubble.  The United States is in bubble.  That’s not just stocks.  It’s bonds.  It’s real estate.  It’s diamonds.  It’s art.  Look, China fell 7 ½ % overnight because every housewife and widow in China opened up a margin account, and now, they are wiped out.  The market in China is down 18% in the last week alone, and it’s got a lot more to fall.  Who is there to support that?  This is where the rubber meets the road.  Don’t worry because central banks have our backs.  When has that been the case?  A central bank can monetize unlimited amounts of debt and destroy the currency.  It creates money out of thin air at infinitum without any consequences.  When has that ever been the case?  (more…)

Obama Care Upheld at SCOTUS, Trade Treason Now Law, Lost Lerner Emails Destroyed-WNW 196

4_jpgBy Greg Hunter’s (6.26.15) 

The huge concocted lie that is Obama Care was upheld by the Supreme Court.  The majority opinion simply reworded the law because it did not want to stop subsidies to more than 8 million people.  They are involving themselves in policy instead of interpreting the law.  Now, there is talk of a bill in the House that will force the Supreme Court onto Obama Care by taking away their exemption.  Obama Care is the biggest policy lie in U.S. history, and we know that to be fact because of MIT professor Jonathan Gruber who bragged on several videos about how the Obama Care lies were crafted with top Democrats including the White House.  The Obama Administration said Gruber was not a key player in Obama Care, but that too is a big lie as new emails were released this week showing he was, according to published reports, “frequently consulted by staffers and advisers for both the White House and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) about the Affordable Care Act.”  Obama says it’s “here to stay,” and the Republicans say Obama Care will be a campaign issue once again in 2016.


We Don’t Know How Bad Secret Obama Trade Deal Really Is-Ellen Brown

4By Greg Hunter’s

Attorney and public banking expert Ellen Brown says the recent Obama trade deal is bad news.  Brown contends, “We don’t even know how bad it is.  All we know we got out of WikiLeaks.  It’s all secret.  They are negotiating what would be called a treaty which should require a two-thirds vote under the Constitution.  They are negotiating it for “fast-track” and it is completely secret. . . .    These documents are supposed to be kept classified for four years after this thing passes.  How is that even possible?  There are two other agreements that are coming down the pipe that are also covered by “fast-track,” which means they go directly to an up or down vote.  Only get a brief time to look at it.  They don’t get to use filibusters.  They don’t get to debate.  Besides the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) which is bad enough because what we know of it is horrible, there is the Trans-Atlantic Agreement which is similar to the TPP with Pacific Rim countries.  There’s another one that we only just heard about which is the TiSA, which is the Trade in Services Agreement.  This covers 80% of the American economy and all sorts of services, including financial services, which means banking.  So, we can’t regulate banking anymore, and that is basically what it means.”


Federal Reserve System a Run Away Machine-G. Edward Griffin

4_jpgBy Greg Hunter’s  (Early Sunday Release)

Edward Griffin, author of “The Creature from Jekyll Island,” says the global monetary system is out of control. Griffin contends, “There is nothing that can be done about it. This thing is a runaway machine.  I would feel much better if these political figures would say hey, this is out of our control right now.  We need a substantial change in the system. . . . We need more honesty.  People have to stand up and say we are in for a tough time.  There is no easy way out of this.  We are in for a tough time.  Hang on to your seatbelts.  We are coming into the rapids now.  We need that kind of honesty, but we are not getting it because most of these guys and gals in Washington are thinking well, it’s going to be bad, but at least I’m in a good spot.  They are more worried about themselves and their families than they are worried about the nation.”


CA Drought Worst Ever, Greek Debt Crisis Latest, Fed Cannot Raise Rates, Secret Trade Deal Advances-WNW 195

4_jpgBy Greg Hunter’s (6.19.15 

A picture is worth a thousand words, and here is a picture of an unfolding calamity in California.  Check out the latest drought map of the state.  Almost 100% of the state is in severe drought conditions.  Many parts of the West are also experiencing drought, but California is ground-zero.  This is a huge food growing region, and the state has just started restricting water to agriculture.  This is a vast problem not only for the U.S., but the entire world, and there is no end in sight. California is a state with a population of nearly 40 million people.  Some towns have been cut off, and some people are starting to store drinking water in their homes.  This could spark a humanitarian crisis and a financial crisis.  You cannot live or do business without ample supplies of water.  California has a GDP of $2.2 trillion.  Agriculture alone is $46 billion a year.  (more…)

Next Financial Calamity Unavoidable-John Embry

4By Greg Hunter’s 

John Embry, Senior Investment Strategist at Sprott Asset Management, says there is no doubt another financial calamity is coming.  In fact, Embry says, “It’s unavoidable.  It’s inevitable is the word I would use.  There is no getting out of it.  If you thought 2008 was bad, and I thought it was terrible, this time, there is no ammunition left.  You can’t take interest rates any lower.  All you can do is print even more money.  That really didn’t work the last time.  The safety nets are largely gone if we do run into something untoward, and it could be fairly soon.  I don’t think there is really anything left to stave it off.  I don’t think they will refuel the period from 2015 to 2020 like they did after 2008.  I think it will be much uglier than that.”


Cashless Society Needed for Negative Rates-Gordon Long

War on cash - A Cashless Society Needed for Negative Rates - Gordon LongBy Greg Hunter’s  (Early Sunday Release)

Macroeconomist Gordon Long says elite bankers want and need negative interest rates.  How do they get them?  Long says, “We need a cashless society in order to get negative interest rates.  We have had negative real interest rates for some time.  That’s the whole premise of paying down the government debt by effectively debasing it.  But we have run up against a wall, and we have run up against that wall.  Clearly, quantitative easing isn’t working.”


WNW 194-Secret Trade Deals, Not Serious About Stopping ISIS, Obama Care and Economy in Trouble

4_jpgBy Greg Hunter’s  (6.12.15) 

The Republicans are pushing trade agreements, but they are secret.  Congressman Paul Ryan says “We the People” do not get to know the secret details until Congress votes them through.  On the trade packages in Asia and Europe, Ryan said, “It’s declassified and made public once it’s agreed to.”  Is this his Republican version of the Nancy Pelosi “We have to vote for it to see what’s in it”?  You know it’s a bad deal for everyday Americans when this sort of trade deal is opposed by Democrats, such as Senator Elizabeth Warren and Republican Congressmen Duncan Hunter.  (more…)

The Collapse Is Now-Gregory Mannarino

4_jpgBy Greg Hunter’s

Financial analyst Gregory Mannarino says time is short for the next financial calamity.  Mannarino contends, “Not only are things are getting close, but we are here now.  This is it. . . . The collapse is now.  Look at what is going on. . . .Despite actions by world central banks, which are unprecedented, we are still going nowhere.  The economy is going nowhere.  The proof is simply in the money velocity.  The issue with the money velocity . . . or at least one of the reasons we are not seeing massive inflation, is the cash is not moving.  Once cash starts to move, and it will move, all of those extra bills that have been printed out of thin air are going to be chasing the same amount of goods.  You do not need to be a rocket scientist to figure this out.”  (more…)

Wave Coming Too Large to Duck Under-Warren Pollock

4By Greg Hunter’s    (Early Sunday Release)

Financial and geopolitical analyst Warren Pollock warns, “When I go swimming in the ocean, sometimes I have to duck under a wave.  This wave may be too large to duck under, and I think that is what these large events are.  I think we are seeing large events, the likes of which you and I haven’t seen, and haven’t been seen in generational memory.  80 years would be a generational memory.  We haven’t seen what a world war looks like.  We haven’t seen what a Great Depression looks like.  We haven’t seen a political crisis.  We haven’t seen total lawlessness, and these are all the things that are happening.”


WNW 193-Greek Debt Crisis Conclusion, Economic Propaganda, Iraq Finger Pointing

4_jpgGreg Hunter’s   (6.5.15)

The Greek debt crisis looks like it will be coming to an end.  I don’t know if it is this month, but it is definitely this year.  Everybody is worried about a Greece default, but a default has really already happened.  If you have to loan a country money to pay its debts, isn’t that a default.  The bankers have piled the debt on Greece, and it can never be paid.  Greece says it cannot make its 300 million euro payment to the IMF (International Monetary Fund) and wants to bundle the debt and put off the payment until the end of the month.  I think the Greeks are going to get that last 7 billion euro loan package, and it will officially default this fall.  (more…)

Panic Exit Out of Currencies & Into Gold & Silver-David Morgan

4_jpgBy Greg Hunter’s

Finance and economic writer David Morgan thinks the global economy very likely could take a sudden turn for the worst.  Morgan says, “There is going to be a panic buy into the metals, and there is only so much to go around. . . . The way things have gone from the 2008 financial crisis until now have only gotten worse. . . . I don’t think we are going to have a hyperinflation, but what I do believe is there will be a panic exit out of currencies.  That event will cause people to run for the most trusted money that exists, and that is gold and silver.  (more…)
