There is a new revelation in the Benghazi, Libya, tragedy where four Americans were murdered in a terror attack on September 11, 2012.  An email has surfaced that some are calling a “smoking gun” because it lays out the talking points to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice in prep for the Sunday talk shows.  Rice said the attack was motivated by a protest because of an anti-Islamic video.  There was no protest, and the video did not cause an attack.  (more…)

Sanctions Are Not Going to Hurt Russia At All-Jim Rogers

12By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Renowned investor Jim Rogers thinks the Ukraine crisis is a big negative for the U.S.  Rogers says, “It’s certainly not helping the United States.  This whole thing in the Ukraine started when the U.S. instigated a coup.  We have our own diplomats on the phone talking about instigating a coup.  We instigated a coup and the Russians naturally reacted.  I mean, if Russia instigated a coup in Canada, I assure you the U.S. would have reacted.  So, Russia reacted, and now he’s (Obama) gotten us into a situation where we’re doing something and they’re doing something; and, of course, this is pushing Russia and China closer together, Russia and other countries closer together, and I don’t know what we’re getting out of it except another embarrassment.”  (more…)

10By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Gold expert James Turk says the Ukraine crisis can affect the price of gold. Turk says, “Whenever there is global tension, people go to safety, and one of the greatest safe havens of all-time has been gold.  It’s been money for 5,000 years, and it’s still money and still a safe haven because it’s money that doesn’t have counter-party risk. . . .  Gold does respond to geopolitical tensions, and I must admit the situation in Ukraine is getting more serious.  (more…)

Fed Knows LIBOR Rate Rigging is a Criminal Conspiracy-Ellen Brown

Fed Knows LIBOR Rate Rigging is a Criminal Conspiracy - Ellen BrownBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Journalist Ellen Brown thinks one of the biggest banker frauds on the planet is the rate rigging of the London Interbank Offered Rate, or LIBOR.  Hundreds of trillions of dollars’ worth of interest rates are set off of LIBOR globally.  Many claim in court they were cheated, and that includes the FDIC.  Brown says, “The FDIC suit is different from the others.  Most of the previous suits were about anti-trust and RICO, which is racketeering and are federal claims. . . . It involves 16 of the world’s largest banks that Professor Bill Black called the largest cartel, and illegal cartel, in history . . . clearly a criminal conspiracy.”   (more…)

True Scale of Dollar Ponzi Scheme Becoming Apparent-Rob KirbyBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Financial expert Rob Kirby says global central bank fraud is propping up the economy.  Kirby contends, “The amount of fiat money that has to be created on a go forward basis rises exponentially over time.  So much, much money is being created whether the Fed says they are ‘tapering’ or the Fed says they’re not ‘tapering’ is irrelevant to what is really happening.  The money is being created, and they have to find places to hide it.  (more…)

This headline is only half right–“Putin turns up the heat in Ukraine.”  It should read, Obama and Putin turn up the heat.  I think this is the big story, and it is being underreported.  It has both financial and real war implications.  Let’s start with what Russia is doing.  It is now going to issue a new bond based in the yuan.  Are you getting that?  (more…)
