Bond Market Bubble in Search of a Pin-Doug Casey

Doug Casey of Casey Research: Bond Market Bubble, Gold and Silver Important to Own and MoreBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Author/investor Doug Casey says, “We’re in a bond bubble.  This is much more serious than the other bubbles because the bond market is much larger than either the real estate market or the stock market.”  Casey explains, “What the government has been doing in an attempt to prop up the failing economy and prop up failing banks and brokerage firms is keep interest rates at very low levels, and that has taken bonds to very high levels.  That bubble is in search of a pin at this point, and when it blows up, it will be much worse than what we saw when the recession started in 2007. ”

Investment advisor Catherine Austin Fitts knows the economy is bad, but not all bad.  She says, “There are many aspects of the economy where the fundamentals are dreadful, and there are certainly parts of the economy collapsing in an evolving implosion.”  Fitts contends capital has shifted out of the old system and into a new system that is high tech and rapidly evolving.  Fitts explains, “One of the things that is keeping the slow burn going is that money flowing into the new system is being reinvested, and those parts of the economy are not only growing but growing strongly. . . . .

Syria is the top story.  Before the second round of Geneva peace talks even started, Iran was uninvited to the talks by the U.N.  It was because Iran would not agree that the President of Syria, Bashar al-Assad, should be removed as part of any peace plan.  The Syrian peace talks have turned into a name calling event with both sides posturing.  This is why the headlines say things like peace talks get off to “Belligerent Start.”  (more…)

Fed-They Do Not Have Any More Gold-Paul Craig Roberts

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Former Assistant Treasury Secretary Paul Craig Roberts is making some bold new claims about the Federal Reserve and its official government gold holdings.  Dr. Roberts contends, “They don’t have any more gold.  That’s why they can only give Germany 5 tons of the 1,500 tons it’s holding.  In fact, when Germany asked for this delivery last year, the Fed said no.  But it said we will give you back 300 tons . . . . So, they said we will give you back 20% of what you trusted us to keep for you over the next seven years, but they are not even able to do that.”  (more…)

President Obama Address NSA Spy Program? Gold-Silver Manipulation & MoreBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

President Obama told Democratic Senators at the White House this week he is going ahead with his agenda with or without Republicans in Congress.  It looks like he will be ramping up the so-called executive order on policies such as immigration and income inequality.  I don’t see how a Constitutional scholar doesn’t get the way the U.S. government works.  Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government are essentially equal and provide checks and balances.  I predict this policy will backfire.

My top story is not New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and the “lane closure gate” on the George Washington bridge between New York and New Jersey.  In a word, it is “stupid.”  The amount of time the networks spent on this story is outrageous.  They should spend this much time on things like the NSA spying and the IRS being used as a political weapon.  This is why the mainstream media is fast becoming irrelevant and untrusted.  (more…)

WILLIAMS_092_wade.JPGBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com   (Early Sunday Release)

Economist John Williams thinks 2014 will mark the beginning of hyperinflation.  Williams contends, “You are going to see, early on, a crisis in the dollar that will start to trigger the inflation . . . as the inflation picks up, that’s going to savage the economy, which is already in a depression.  It never recovered.”  Forget what you have heard about the so-called recovery.  Williams says, “The consumer is in trouble.  There is nothing happening to turn the economy around.”  The weak economy is bad news for the dollar.  According to Williams, “Anything that would suggest deficit deterioration here, and a weak economy would do that, will have a devastating impact on the dollar.”  (more…)

The top story for the last Wrap-Up of the year is the turmoil in the Middle East.  The Iranian lawmakers are considering a bill that will allow the enrichment of uranium to 60%.  If this passes and is approved, it will be, no doubt, a deal breaker for the recent accords agreed upon with the West in Geneva.  Iran says its nuclear program is for the peaceful production of energy.  The West is afraid of a nuclear armed Iran.
