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…)

Payroll Tax Cut Extension and Ron Paul and Martial LawGreg Hunter’s 

We have a deal on extending the payroll tax cut–for two whole months.  It may put a few extra bucks in the pockets of working Americans, but it is an accounting nightmare for business. This isn’t much of a fix to the ailing economy, but we really don’t have much in the way of leadership on either side of the aisle.  (more…)

Greg Hunter with Alex Jones on

By Greg Hunter’s

I had the pleasure of being on with Alex Jones this week.  We covered a variety of topics including the European debt crisis (which is really a bank solvency crisis), loss of the Constitutional rights of Americans with passage of the Indefinite Detention bill and FEMA camps to name a few.  I was having some audio problems that day; so, I winged it and used a telephone along with my Skype.  (more…)

Countdown to the End

2012 Economic Outlook: Countdown to the EndBy Greg Hunter’s 

Today marks the official one year countdown to the end of the Mayan calendar.  365 days from today will be December 21, 2012.  Some say it marks the end of the world, but others say it is really the end of an era.  An Associated Press (AP) report, yesterday, about Mexican tourism said, “It’s selling the date, the Winter Solstice in the coming year, as a time of renewal. Many archeologists argue that the 2012 reference on a 1,300-year-old stone tablet only marks the end of a cycle in the Mayan calendar.  (more…)

First Amendment Under Attack at All Levels

By Greg Hunter’s  

Government politicians have gotten things all turned around.  Instead of them working for us, they think we work for them.  People are starting to speak out about the problems bubbling up, and it is not being appreciated by our elected officials.  This is not just a phenomenon for a big global protest like Occupy Wall Street, but it is trickling down to small cities like Pensacola, Florida.  (more…)

Oblivious Because of Mainstream Media

By Greg Hunter’s

 I think most people are simply oblivious to the enormous dangers the world economy faces.  Oh, I think we will all get through Christmas and New Years without a meltdown, but all bets are off in 2012.  A new acquaintance of mine told me last Friday, “Isn’t the economy getting better?”  I just looked at her and shook my head in the negative.  (more…)

Weekly News Wrap-Up 12.16.11

Greg Hunter’s  Congress held multiple hearings this week on what happened in the bankruptcy of MF Global. At least $1.2 billion in customer funds are missing, and none of the top executives, including Jon Corzine, knows anything.  Some are finding it hard to believe that Corzine, a former CEO of Goldman Sachs, a former Governor and Senator could be that much in the dark about what happened. The IMF chief, Christine Lagarde, said the crisis in Europe is not only “unfolding but escalating.”  Iranians now say they brought down that American spy drone (SQ 170 Sentinel) by hacking into the electronics of the aircraft. The U.S. denies it’s even the real thing.  (more…)

The Last Bill of Rights Day

By Greg Hunter’s

Earlier today, I wrote a hopeful article about how the language in the “Indefinite Detention” bill (otherwise know as National Defense Authorization Act or NDAA) might be changed to not gut the Bill of Rights. I was way too optimistic.  It appears to be over, and the reconciled bill is on its way to President Obama’s desk to sign into law.  It also appears there is zero chance he will veto the bill.  I think this effectively means America has had its last Bill of Rights Day.  (more…)

Hope Indefinite Detention Bill Will Be Changed to Protect Americans

By Greg Hunter’s 

Not everyone in Congress thinks it is a good idea to pass a law that will allow indefinite detention of U.S. citizens.  Senator Mike Lee and Representative Justin Amash think the Senate version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) needs major changes to preserve constitutional rights of all Americans.  Both the House of Representatives and the Senate have passed versions of this bill.  The bill the Senate passed recently (S 1867) is where all the controversy comes from.  (more…)

Is the Gold Bull Really Dead?

Price of Gold: Is the Gold Bull Really Dead?By Greg Hunter’s

Economist Dennis Gartman announced in his newsletter, yesterday, that he has sold all of his gold.  I don’t know if it was physical or paper gold in an ETF (exchange traded fund), but it is gone.  According to Bloomberg, Gartman said, “Since the early autumn here in the Northern Hemisphere gold has failed to make a new high. . . .

Three Stooges Testify about Missing Money at MF Global

From the movie “Three Dumb Clucks”

Greg Hunter’s 

I watched in amazement today at the Senate Hearing on the collapse of MF Global about 6 weeks ago.  The three top executives testified about what they knew and when they knew it.  CEO Jon Corzine, COO Bradley Abelow and CFO Henri Steenkamp all sat there and, essentially, said none of them knew where $1.2 billion of segregated customer money went.  It might as well have been Moe, Larry and Curly testifying.   (more…)

Signs of Disintegration

US and European Economic Crisis: Signs of Disintegration!By Greg Hunter’s 

“Disintegration.”  That’s the word both billionaire George Soros and French President Nicolas Sarkozy have recently used to describe what’s going on with the European economic crisis.  It is really a solvency crisis for the big banks there, and leaders are trying desperately to fix the problem.  Last week, 26 European countries agreed to give up sovereignty and vote for new rules on tax and spending and tough sanctions to enforce them.  (more…)

By Greg Hunter’s 

There was a big meeting in Europe this week to try and find a solution to the sovereign debt crisis.  The fate of the European Union hangs in the balance.  French President Nicolas Sarkozy said, “Never has the risk of disintegration been greater.”  He was also quoted saying there could be an “explosion” if a solution is not found in the next few weeks.  Former MF Global chief testified in front of Congress and says he has no idea where up to $3 billion of segregated client money is after more than a month after the brokerage declared bankruptcy.  (more…)

Does the Indefinite Detention Bill Foretell Future?

National Defense Authorization Act - Indefinite Detention Bill Senate Bill 1867By Greg Hunter’s 

The recent passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (Senate Bill 1867), otherwise known as the “Indefinite Detention Bill,” should scare the heck out of anyone who loves the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  This bill effectively hands over control to the military to arrest, torture and even kill terrorists on American soil.  (more…)

MSM Waking up to Zero Wall Street Prosecutions

This weekend 60 Minutes finally did a story about the fact that zero high ranking prosecutions have taken place in the wake of the financial meltdown.  I guess as far as CBS is concerned it is better late than never.  My only question is what in the hell took CBS so long to wake up to this outrageous travesty of justice?  Enormous crimes were committed by the highest ranking members of Wall Street.  This was racketeering on many levels.  (more…)
