Our greatest risk is war.”  Ms. Fitts explains, “I am talking about war in many different venues.  What we’ve seen in a place like Ukraine is very much defined by what’s called “soft weapons.”  So, we are watching war through the information systems and cyber hacking.  (more…)

Economist John Williams has a dire prediction for the U.S. dollar.  Williams says, “I don’t see what will save it at this point. . . .

Fed Laundering Treasury Purchases to Disguise What’s Happening-Paul Craig Roberts

Dr. Paul Crag Roberts: Belgium and US Treasury DebtBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

In his latest article, former Assistant Treasury Secretary Dr. Paul Craig Roberts says, “The Fed is the great deceiver.”   Why is he making this shocking accusation?   The reason is tiny Belgium’s whopping purchase of $141 billion in Treasury bonds earlier this year.   Dr. Roberts explains, “We know that Belgium didn’t have any money to buy $141 billion worth of bonds over a three month period.  That sum comes to 29% of the Belgium GDP.  So, they don’t have a surplus in their budget that is 29% of their GDP, and they don’t have trade or current account surplus in that amount.  In fact, everything is in the red.  (more…)

Russian Bombers Off California, Benghazi Scandal and MoreBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

The Ukraine crisis is spidering off in ways no one dreamed of a few months ago.  Even though Russia says it is backing off, the economic and psychological war is intensifying.  Big headline in USA Today says “Putin Diffuses Tensions in Ukraine Crisis.” Putin says it is backing some troops off from the border, but NATO says there is “no evidence of withdrawal.”  My sources say Russia will not do an overt invasion; it will just let Ukraine sink into chaos.  (more…)

Dr. Jim Willie-Russia May want Gold Not Stinking Dollars

Dr. Jim Willie: Gold Update, Russia and Ukraine, Janet Yellen & MoreBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Financial newsletter writer, Dr. Jim Willie, thinks the Ukraine crisis is more of a financial war than a shooting war.  Dr. Willie says, “A couple of months ago, I said, ‘Give it time and the whole nation would sink,’ and the Putin strategy would be to create a standoff militarily, maybe some skirmishes, but let the nation sink.  It’s been raided of its gold and raided of its official government funds; and, now, the energy companies are in there doing fracking.  I think what is happening now is we are starting to see the breakdown.” (more…)

Catastrophic Meltdown Coming to America-Doug Casey

Doug Casey

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Investor/author Doug Casey says most Americans are ill-prepared for what is coming.  Casey explains, “This huge recession that started in 2007, and the bottom was 2009 and 2010, has cyclically recovered.  So, people think it’s going to be happy days again, but it’s not.  The way the government engineered this recovery is by creating trillions in currency units, and as we speak, they are creating $55 billion a month more by buying government bonds and mortgage securities.  All of this paper money which is currently sitting in banks, at some point, is going to wash over the U.S.  You’ll see very high levels of inflation.  It’s going to be quite catastrophic.”   (more…)

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…)
