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…)

9/11 Conspiracy Theory–Insane or Insightful?

By Greg Hunter’s 

I keep coming back to one question in the 9/11 conspiracy story: How did two jets knock down three New York City skyscrapers?  The jets only hit two buildings, and that is a fact.  I have posted a video from the group “” on the site.  (Click here to see Building 7 implode.)  It clearly shows Building 7 of the World Trade Center imploding straight down, as if it was a controlled demolition.  I am not an expert, but it sure looks like that to me.  (more…)

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…)
