WNW 178-Obama Blocked on Immigration, Ukraine Ceasefire Off, ISIS Beheading Christians

4Greg Hunter’s  2.20.15

The Obama Administration suffered a crushing defeat this week on his executive order on immigration.  A federal judge ruled that basically the President did not have the power to make up his own laws outside of Congress.  The immigration executive order would have given temporary legal status to 4 to 5 million illegal immigrants, allowing them tax refunds, social security numbers and other government benefits.  (more…)

Greece Will Default-Calamity Follows-Andrew Hoffman

45By Greg Hunter’s 

Financial writer Andrew Hoffman says the debt problem in Greece will not have a happy ending. Hoffman contends, “More than half of Greek debt, everyone talks about the 400 billion euros they owe, more than half of this debt is from the bailouts in the last four years. . . . Two years ago, I wrote that Greece was my top pick to catalyze the big one, and here we are in that same position. . . . If there is an agreement, it is only going to be bad for everybody.  It’s going to bad for Europe and bad for Greece.  Of course, if there is no agreement, then there is your end game right there.  (more…)

Renowned economist John Williams says forget the happy talk about the so-called “recovery”—it ain’t happening.  Williams contends, “I wish I could say things are booming, but indeed they are not. . . . The GDP in the last three quarters, if you believe what they put out, is the strongest economic growth seen in more than a decade.  That’s not the common experience. . . . The consumer is in terrible liquidity straights. . . . The reality is the economy has not recovered.” 


WNW 177-Middle East War Set-Up, Ukraine Peace Deal, Greece and EU on Brink

4By Greg Hunter’s (2.13.15)

Everywhere you look in the Middle East, there are “wars and rumors of wars.”  Let’s start with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.  The President says he’s ready to fight the Islamic State, and they are “losing.” In fact, they are continuing to take territory in Iraq and Syria.  President Obama is asking Congress for military authority, but in reality, the President’s proposal to defeat ISIS has restrictions, and he does not want to use ground troops.  (more…)

Growing Problems Leading to US Dollar Crisis-Peter Schiff

4By Greg Hunter’s

Money manager Peter Schiff says forget about the Greece debt questions; the problems in the U.S. are far worse.  Schiff contends, “I am even more concerned with the problems with the dollar.  The dollar is benefiting right now because most people are just concerned about the euro.  So, the dollar gets stronger because people sell euros and buy dollars, but they are missing the bigger picture.  We have even more advanced problems with our currency than they have in Europe with the euro.”


Everybody is Trying to Postpone the Inevitable-Axel Merk

Alex MerkBy Greg Hunter’s

Money manager Axel Merk says, “I am very concerned about Russia.  I am very concerned about what is happening with Ukraine.  The problems we have there and in Europe, and in Japan and in the U.S., are we cannot balance our budgets.  Ukraine would not be in the situation it is in if it could, if it were able to balance its books.  That’s just the symptom and it exhibits differently.  (more…)

WNW 176 Middle East War, Ukraine War, Economic Calamity Coming

4By Greg Hunter’s (2/6/15) 

Everybody has seen the horrifying video of the Jordanian pilot being burned alive by the Islamic State.  I want to concentrate on why these Islamic radicals did this, and did it in a slickly produced video.  I think these terrorists wanted to make sure the world could clearly see and hear this horrible act to get people riled up for war.  (more…)

Gold is Gone, Total Chaos Coming-Bill Holter

4By Greg Hunter’s 

Financial writer Bill Holter says there is better than 60% to 70% chance that another financial calamity will hit in 2015, and it could start from anywhere in the world.  Holter contends, “It doesn’t really matter where it starts.  It will probably be global within less than 48 hours.  The reality is it will go all the way around the world within two days because party “A” will not pay party “B” who doesn’t pay party “C” and on and on we will go.  The payment chain will break.

World War III Has Started-Gregory Mannarino

Greg MannarinoBy Greg Hunter’s

Analyst and trader Gregory Mannarino says, “We are deeply engaged in an economic war against Russia.  This is a collective collusion that is very scary.  We just found out the OPEC nations have increased their production of oil despite the fact that we’ve seen crude oil fall 60% or more from its high.  Does that make any sense?  This should not happen.  They are going to increase production when the price is falling off a cliff.  OPEC has made it clear for many years now they think $100 a barrel is a fair price.  This is being done on purpose to punish the Russian economy.  This is economic warfare 101, and it’s going to lead to a shooting war.  Not only is it going to lead to a shooting war, this is the grand plan.

WNW175-Financial War and Shooting War Intensifying-No Real Recovery, Obama Veto

4finBy Greg Hunter’s (1.30.15)

War is what I am going to concentrate on in this Weekly News Wrap-Up.  There is no doubt a massive financial war is going on right now.  If this keeps up, it will only lead to a shooting war and a very big one at that.  The EU wants to put another round of sanctions on Russia, and get this, Greece is signaling it will veto that action.  So, not only does the recently elected Greece leadership want debt forgiveness, it also looks like it is going to side with Russia over more sanctions.  (more…)

Climate Change is Global Communist Tyranny-Lord Christopher Monckton

4By Greg Hunter’s

Lord Christopher Monckton says the “climate change” issue is really a way to gain control of the world.  Lord Monckton, former award winning journalist who was once an advisor to Margaret Thatcher, contends, “This is a story that has been grossly, I mean grossly, oversold.  They have exaggerated beyond all reason.  Just this week, I’ve had a major paper published in the Science Bulletin of the Chinese Academy of Science which gives the reasons why they got it wrong.  We went into their wretched climate models and took them apart.  We’ve found what they did wrong, and we exposed it.  The left have gone ballistic.”


Lawless Leaders Changing the World-Catherine Austin Fitts

7By Greg Hunter’s  (Early Sunday Release)

Financial expert Catherine Austin Fitts says the world is changing through crime by our leaders.  Fitts contends, “We are dealing with a lawlessness that is happening with the build out of the global systems, which is very ugly.  If you look at what has happened to the Ukraine, so far, over a million people have lost their homes.  That’s pretty lawless. The fighting is getting very, very painful.  (more…)

4By Greg Hunter’s (1.23.15) 

Several top stories are all coming out of the Middle East, and they all show war is approaching.  Yemen has fallen into the hands of Islamic radicals, and there is total chaos and anarchy in the country which now has no formal government.  This is an ominous development as it borders Saudi Arabia where staunch U.S. ally, King Abdullah, just died.  (more…)

Free Markets Have Been Completely Obliterated-Michael Pento

4By Greg Hunter’s

Money manager Michael Pento says, “We live in a world now where free markets have been completely obliterated.  You can’t find a free market left on the planet, and that goes for commodities, equity markets, currencies and particularly goes for the bond markets.  The bond markets now do not represent any vestige of reality whatsoever.  That should be apparent to anyone with a pulse or an IQ better than a retarded ameba.”


We Are in a Financial Meltdown-Nomi Prins

Nomi PrinsBy Greg Hunter’s     (Early Sunday Release)

Best-selling author and financial expert Nomi Prins says, “We are in a financial meltdown.  I said 9 or 10 months ago, it hadn’t happened yet, but it should happen because of the instability of a system that is supported by central bank maneuvers and not really anything organic and leveraging and reaching for yields in places like oil and natural gas and other places on the virtue of cheap money. . . . It kind of boggles the mind.  This QE is epic.  It’s historic.  It is larger and more insane that ever in history.  It is pan-global.  The reason that things have kind of stayed in place is because there was enough cheap money coming into the system and enough corporations getting it . . . that really kept the markets artificially buoyed by virtue of this cheap money coming  in.  (more…)
