Mainstream Media Keeps Putting Lipstick on Pig Economy

Hyperinflationary Depression 2012 - 2014: Mainstream Media Keeps Putting Lipstick on Pig EconomyBy Greg Hunter’s 

My slogan is “analyzing the news to give you a clear picture of what’s really going on.”  So, I spend a significant amount of time watching news on TV and the Internet and even the good old fashioned newspaper.  If you only got your news from the mainstream media (MSM), it’s easy to understand whyso many people think the economy is not all that bad.  For example, yesterday, I heard the “R” word a lot.  No, I am not talking about recession but “recovery.”  This is preposterous when you consider the latest report from the Case-Shiller Home Price Index that was released yesterday.  (more…)

There is No Real Recovery in Economy

If the economy was doing so well, the Federal Reserve would not be announcing (last week) an extension of its zero interest rate policy until the end of 2014.  If the economy was truly in a real recovery the Fed would be hiking interest rates instead of giving away money for virtually nothing.  It is just not the U.S. that is doing badly, but the rest of the world is also tanking.  Just look shipping traffic around the globe.

State of Denial in Coming War Catastrophe

By Greg Hunter’s 

The world economy is in the tank, and the Federal Reserve’s decision to extend its zero interest rate policy to, at least, the end of 2014 proves it.  What will happen if the fragile world economy also has to deal with a war with Iran?  (more…)

Weekly News Wrap-Up 1.27.12

By Greg Hunter’s  The Federal Reserve announced, this week, that it was keeping interest rates at near zero percent until at least 2014.  It sure doesn’t look like the so-called “recovery” is going very well.  The Fed also said it may “stimulate” the economy soon.  Print baby print—you wonder why gold has been rising in price?  (more…)

A Warning from a Pro

By Greg hunter’s 

I got an email yesterday from a person called “Michael” (I will not use his last name.) that said, “Greg, I have been reading you for about two years now. I have read everything from $8/gallon gas to a total collapse of the dollar. You are the boy who cries wolf.”  (more…)

JP Morgan Chase Continues PR Blitz

By Greg Hunter’s

I was watching the FOX Business channel, and who did I see again–Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO of JP Morgan Chase.  Charlie Gasparino had what he called a “no holds barred” interview with Dimon.  I watched two long segments of the interview, and once again, it appeared like a PR story for the bank.  In one of the segments, Gasparino said that Dimon, “. . . took every question I threw at him . . . I think he sees himself as a spokesman for the industry.”  It was too bad Gasparino was throwing softballs.


George Soros Worried about Survival!

By Greg Hunter’s 

The World Economic Forum (January 25-29) in Davos, Switzerland, is probably the most important ever.  The world is closer to another financial meltdown that could crush the tenuous global economy.  Many experts have said the next meltdown will be bigger than 2008.  On top of the list of problems to tackle is the sovereign debt crisis and insolvent European banks.  (more…)

USA Today Gives JP Morgan Free Pass

By Greg Hunter’s 

Last week, I saw an interview in USA Today with JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon.  Maria Bartiromo of CNBC was the reporter; so, I am not surprised to see a very soft ball story.  I don’t know what you would call this kind of reporting, but it’s not journalism.  To me, it’s a PR piece for Dimon and JP Morgan.  (more…)

There are about a dozen dead and twenty more missing off the coast of Italy.  Video of the Costal Concordia on its side made this story irresistible to the mainstream media.  It got wall-to-wall coverage, but does it really affect the everyday lives of Americans?  No!!  It took away time for stories that are much more important, and, no, I am not talking about the tawdry tale from Newt Gingrich’s ex-wife.  (more…)

Resistance Over Indefinite Detention Legislation Grows

Just because President Obama quietly signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA, aka Indefinite Detention) into law on New Years Eve, doesn’t mean protests about the new law have simmered down.  The new law gives the government the power to detain American citizens for the suspicion of terrorism.  There is no right of trial, or even the requirement of a formal charge.  (more…)

Can Ron Paul Win as a Third Party Candidate?

Can Ron Paul Win as a Third Party Candidate?By Greg Hunter’s

In a new poll, out yesterday, 7 out of 10 Republicans and right leaning independent voters believe Mitt Romney will be the GOP nominee for President.  (Click here for that poll.)   Does that mean it’s over for Congressman Ron Paul?  I think it is safe to say it is probably a long shot he will be the Republican nominee, but what about a third party run?  Can Ron Paul win as a third party candidate? (more…)

Iran War is Only Matter of Time

By Greg Hunter’s 

Two weeks ago, Iranians were saved from pirates on their hijacked ship by the U.S. Navy.  Last week, the U.S. military saved a sinking ship in the Persian Gulf.  It’s too bad that will not be enough goodwill to stop the coming Iran war.  Headlines in the last few weeks look like a stark warning for a coming conflict.  (more…)

It looks like GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney is opening up a wide lead in the national polls.  Gallup has his up by as much as 20 points, but he hasn’t won the nomination just yet.  The South Carolina primary is coming up, and it promises to be a real cage fight. (more…)

Dollar Crisis Coming–Just a Matter of Time

I have long said the trouble in the U.S. economy will all eventually boil down to a currency crisis.  Meaning, the dollar is going to lose a whole lot more buying power before this chapter in American history is over.  This is not a matter of if but when, and we are not going to have to wait too much longer.  People call the buck a “safe haven” investment, but the buck is hardly safe.  Jim Willie from agrees and has written a stellar post spelling out just how vulnerable the U.S. dollar really is.  Please enjoy his work below, and check out his PhD credentials after the post.—Greg Hunter.

Obama or More of the Same

Mitt Romney Wins in NH

By Greg Hunter’s 

Mitt Romney, who finished first in New Hampshire last night, got a raw deal from the mainstream media (MSM) and his Republican opponents about a comment that was totally taken out of context.  It was reported that Mitt Romney said, “I like to fire people.”  That would make you think he was some sort of cold hearted person who doesn’t care about people.  (more…)
