Weekly News Wrap-Up 1.20.12

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?

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…)

Greg Hunter on Infowars Nightly News

By Greg Hunbter’s

I was asked to be on the Nightly News show with Alex Jones.  Arron Dykes filled in for Alex and did a great job.   I want to point out that this newscast is really on the cutting edge of information technology.  In the news world, the Internet represents what is called “disruptive technology.”  (more…)

Unemployment Drop Masks Ongoing Decline

Greg Hunter’s 

Last Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) said 200,000 new jobs were created which dropped the unemployment rate to 8.5%.  Break out the party hats and champagne, we’ve finally hit bottom and are heading back up!  That’s the way the mainstream media (MSM) reported it, and in a campaign year, President Obama took a victory lap.    (more…)

Weekly News Wrap-Up 1.6.12

By Greg Hunter’s 

The Middle East keeps getting hotter every week.  Iran just finished war games in the Persian Gulf and threatened to shut down the Strait of Hormuz because of increasing sanctions.  It is now warning the U.S. Navy to stay out of the Gulf with its aircraft carriers.  The Pentagon is ignoring the threat and says it is going to keep on doing business as usual.  It is also reported that the U.S. is conducting military exercises in in Israel.  It’s been done before, but the timing could not be more provocative.  (more…)

Meet the Mainstream Press

By Greg Hunter’s 

Nothing is more emblematic of the mainstream media (MSM) than NBC’s “Meet the Press.”  I wonder if it should be renamed “Meet the Corporate Mainstream Press” because that is exactly what it was on Sunday.  Before the first vote was cast, Sunday’s panel anointed Mitt Romney as the Republican candidate to face Barack Obama this fall.  I really wonder why we have caucuses or primaries at all.  (more…)

The Hormuz Wild Card

Strait of Hormuz

By Greg Hunter’s 

Iran is threatening to shut down the Strait of Hormuz if more sanctions are installed against it.  Tensions are mounting between the U.S. and other nations as Iran continues to develop a nuclear program.  Most recently, it was reported Iran made its first nuclear fuel rod that it claims is for the peaceful production of energy.  (more…)

Weekly News Wrap-Up 12.30.11

By Greg Hunter’s 

The big story, with worldwide implications, is Iran threating to close down the Strait of Hormuz.  The Iranians are fighting mad at the U.S. and EU for plans to tighten sanctions on their oil and financial interests because of Iran’s nuclear program.  Iran claims it is for peaceful purposes.  Nevertheless, tensions with Iran have been escalating in recent weeks.  (more…)

MSM Pushing Turnaround for Economy

Economy Turning AroundBy Greg Hunter’s 

Over the last several days, I began hearing a new description of the economy by the mainstream media (MSM)—“turnaround.”  I can’t tell you how many different ways this phrase was used, but it was enough to get my attention.  I don’t know who comes up with this stuff or where it is hatched, but I think this phrase is the new “recovery” term.  Remember when we started out with “green shoots”?  (more…)

Charities get Christmas Gift from “Anonymous”

By Greg Hunter’s

It looks like charities such as the Red Cross, CARE and Save the Children got some much needed money this Christmas, but it came from the Internet hacking group know as “Anonymous.”  It is being reported Anonymous broke into a reporting and security firm called Stratfor.  It stole thousands of client credit card numbers and donated money from those individuals to charity.  (more…)
