Syria Cease-Fire & Safe Zone-Not, South China Sea Heats Up, Apple & DOJ Spar Over Unlocking I-Phone

1bBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (WNW 228 2.26.16)

A cease-fire is supposed to begin on Syria Saturday. Many geopolitical experts are skeptical that it will ever take place. It was negotiated by the U.S and Russia. With Secretary of State John Kerry doing the negotiation for America, I don’t have any faith in it being a success. John Kerry says if the cease-fire does not hold, he may push to partition Syria. I say the odds of that happening are slim to none. Even though it is reported that Kerry is thinking about making some sort of “safe zone” in Syria, it will require as many as 30,000 U.S. troops.

Perfect Storm of Financial Collapse and WWIII-Michael Snyder

12bBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Journalist and book author Michael Snyder says the collapse is not an event, but a “process.” Snyder explains, “I believe it is already in the process of coming apart. . . . One fifth of global stock market value is already gone.  That means we only have four fifths left.  At one point this month, $16.5 trillion had been wiped out from global stock markets since mid-2015.  So, this started last year.  We saw oil collapse.  We’ve seen junk bonds collapse.  We’ve seen commodity prices collapse.  The $16.5 trillion I just mentioned is just for stocks, and when you add up the other losses, that’s trillions of dollars more wealth that has been wiped out all over the world.  What we have seen already has been extraordinary, but we are still in the process.  People want to think of it as an event or a single day or a month, but this is a process.”

Cash Ban is All about Control-Bill Holter

22Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com   (Early Sunday Release)

Financial writer Bill Holter says there is a good reason some are pushing the idea of doing away with cash. Holter contends, “It’s not about the drug trade.  It’s not about tax evasion.  It’s really about capital controls.  It’s about corralling the public’s funds into the banks.  Then you go one step further, and they already put bail-in legislation into effect pretty much throughout the West.  So, what they are doing is ring fencing your capital.  If they really do away with all cash and all your funds have to be in the banking system, then basically you are completely controlled. . . . Individuals can be shut off because the state doesn’t like them.”

Could WWIII in Middle East Start Soon, Even MSM Knows Economy Tanking, Trump vs Pope

1bBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (WNW 227 2.19.16)

The top story is the Middle East and the possibility of WWIII. I am not exaggerating here as both Saudi Arabia and Turkey have strongly suggested that their countries would invade Syria. Saudi Arabia and other Middle East countries have reportedly amassed 350,000 troops on the Syrian border. Russian President Vladimir Putin says any troops entering Syria without the permission of Syria would be considered an “Act of War.” This would be huge and, no doubt, would go nuclear. Maybe this is the reason why Russia dispatched a brand new cruise missile ship to the Eastern Mediterranean last week.

2016 Reveals Banks Shaky & Gold Solid-James Turk

10By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Gold expert James Turk says the banks are in trouble again. One of the biggest troubled institutions is Germany’s Deutsche Bank, and Turk contends, “It is quite alarming the shares of the stock are basically where they were in the lows of 2008.  It’s at the bottom of that year’s financial crisis, and here we have not even started the financial crisis yet.  The stock is back to those prices of seven or eight years ago.  It makes you wonder what is yet to come.  You are seeing publicity stunts like Jamie Dimon buying $25 million worth of JPMorgan stock.  It reminds me of what we saw back in the 1930’s.  In the history books, guys would go out and buy shares of their stock to convince people that things were okay.  The market is telling us that people want to be in safer things, and it looks like gold’s trend has finally turned after a four year correction. . . . It looks like we are going to be heading higher.”

Stocks Cut in Half & Gold Doubles in 2016-Bo Polny

Bo Polny Photo ORIGINALBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)

Market cycle analyst Bo Polny says stocks are going to take a beating, and gold is going to shine in 2016. Polny contends, “What we’ve seen happen so far in gold is just a warm up.  We are not even close to see movements in gold, this is just the start. . . . What’s coming is a transfer of wealth.  When you are looking at a transfer of wealth, it means a huge financial shift in the landscape. . . . You are going to have the stock market crash this year of a minimum of 50% . . . and gold will double.   A $5,000 stock investment, after it is cut in half, will only buy you one ounce of gold that will be $2,500, and that will happen this year.”

Elites Know Economy in Deep Trouble, ISIS Will Attack US, Election Update

The economy is in deep trouble and elites know it.  I think it’s so dire that it’s safe to say the trouble coming is going to be unlike anything we have seen.  It will be Biblical in nature.  The headlines this week were touting plunging markets and spiking gold prices.  You know people are nervous when Drudge Report has a main headline that talks about gold demand.  Anybody with two neurons touching knows the economy is in trouble, and the Fed is totally out of options.

Gold Will Smell Blood of Negative Rates-Peter Schiff

Money manager Peter Schiff says forget about the Fed raising interest rates. The next move is down.  Schiff explains, “I think there is a pretty good chance we’re going to get 0% interest rates before the end of the year, and I think we’re going to get QE4.  We will see if the Fed is going to go negative, but they are going to do it eventually.”

DOW 6,000 Extreme Sell-Off Coming-Gregory Mannarino

2By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (Early Sunday Release)

Trader/analyst Gregory Mannarino called the top of the DOW in May 2015. The market was well over 18,000 then and currently more than 2,000 points lower.  Mannarino now says the Dow is going to “6,000–or lower.” Mannarino warns, “People need to be ready for a major, extreme sell-off in equities which are inflated in a bubble.”

Mannarino also says that the current stock market is, “the biggest bubble of them all that was inflated by a runaway central bank, and I believe it is bursting now. . . . There is nothing to push this back up.”

Hillary’s Iowa Loss, Economy Keeps Sinking, Obama Mosque Visit

1bBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

The big loser in the Iowa Primary is Hillary Clinton. Yes, she came in first by a tiny margin, but even that is in question. Iowa’s biggest newspaper is calling for a recount because of the .2% margin of victory. The head of the Democratic Party in Iowa, also, reportedly, is a huge supporter of Clinton, and her Iowa license plate reads HRC 2016. Dr. Andrea “Andy” McGuire, the state’s Democratic Party Chairman, says there will be no recount. The biggest problem for Hillary is the ongoing FBI investigation over big national security issues caused by her private server. One of the big Republican winners in Iowa was Donald Trump. Why do I say this when he came in second? Trump spent far less time and money in Iowa than Rubio and Cruz. Iowa was basically a three-way tie.

World Going into Nasty Depression-Hugo Salinas Price

4bBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Billionaire retail magnate Hugo Salinas Price says the world debt has peaked and has no place to go but down. Salinas Price explains, “It is a global phenomenon, yes. The world has too much debt, and now it’s trying to get out of debt. That’s what’s going on. . . . The debt peaked in August of 2014. I’ve been watching this for 20 years, and I have never seen anything like it. It was always growing, and now something has changed. A big change of this sort is an enormous event. I think it portends a new trend, and that trend will be to get out of debt. Deleverage and pay down debt. That is, of course, a contraction. Contraction means depression. The world is going into a depression. It’s going to get very nasty. The end result is nations, governments are going to have to revalue gold because that is the only thing they will have left. They will have to resort to that to keep trade coming in. No country is completely independent economically. We all need things others produce. . . . In order to have that world trade going, we are going to have to go back to gold. That’s my vision anyway.”

Investors Heading for Slaughter One More Time-David Stockman

Stockman, David NEW (cr. Caryl Englander)By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (Early Sunday Release)

Former Reagan White House Budget Director David Stockman says retail investors are going to take, yet, another very big hit. Stockman explains, “The retail investor waded in again. The sheep lined up and, unfortunately, are heading for the slaughter one more time. I think it is very hard to see how this Baby Boom generation, with 10,000 of them retiring a day, can afford one more devastating crash in their stock holdings. That is, unfortunately, what we are heading for. That’s why I say it’s dangerous. When the bubble breaks, it will spill and flow throughout the Main Street economy.”

All Trump All the Time, Bad Economy Sold as Good, Lucifer is In Style-NOT

b4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (WNW 224 1.29.16)

Trump talks, he makes news. Trump doesn’t talk, he makes news. Trump tweets, he makes news. Trump offends, he makes news. Trump makes sense, he makes news. You may think what is going on with Donald Trump is all about Trump, it is really about the changing landscape of media and the old mainstream media (MSM) losing its relevance. Look at what just happened with Trump and this debate fiasco with FOX. FOX thinks it’s still running the media show, and Trump is showing them they are not. When you hear about Trump tweeting, switch out the word ‘tweet’ with ‘broadcast’ and there you have it. Trump, via the new media such as Facebook and Twitter, doesn’t need a network of TV stations or a cable outlet. The mainstream media is so freaked out they cover each and every tweet of Trump’s so as to not miss out and retain some relevance. No front-runner would have ever turned down a TV appearance until now. Why did he turn it down–he doesn’t need it. The MSM needs him. Times are changing, and the MSM is losing its grip in media and thus its relevance. Of that there is no doubt.

Monetary Meth Coming Soon-Gerald Celente

15By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Top trends forecaster Gerald Celente says the global economy is tanking, but don’t expect central banks to go down without a fight. Celente explains, “So, what happens? The markets are going down, and you hear from people like Ray Dalio (hedge fund manager) from Bridgewater Associates saying that the Federal Reserve needs to consider quantitative easing again and more stimulus. All of a sudden, the markets go up because, what happens, Mario Draghi, former head of the Goldman Sachs gang in Europe. . . . . Now, of course, he’s the head of the European Central Bank (ECB).  Davos, Dalio, Draghi, three D’s man. Draghi gave these money junkies over there some monetary meth.  All of a sudden, Draghi comes out and promises more stimulus on the horizon, folks. Whether it’s the Fed, ECB, China or the Bank of Japan talking about it again—more stimulus. All they are doing is keeping this money junkie, this Ponzi that is addicted to cheap money, alive. At some point, as we saw, it’s crashing and they keep coming up and give it more life.”

Next Crash Worse than 1929 & 2008 Combined-Michael Pento

Michael PentoBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (Early Sunday release)

Money manager Michael Pento says the next crash will be one for the record books. Pento contends, “If you look at any of the economic data coming out, it screams recession. It will be one of the worst recessions since 2008 and 1929—combined.” This is a description of a global depression. Pento contends, “Unfortunately, I think that’s exactly where we are headed. It’s not my opinion. It’s not a Cassandra. It’s not my view. It’s the entire view of all global markets. China is 45% down. There’s a bear market in Europe. There’s a bear market in Japan. There is a bear market in most of the United States.”
