Syria War Update, Economy Tanking, No Fed Rate Hike, MSM Dem Super-Pac

19Greg Hunter’s (WNW 214 10.30.15)

The U.S. Middle East policy is getting more confusing and more dangerous. They are talking peace while sending more troops to Iraq and Syria. Iran is now also invited to the peace table in Vienna to try and find a solution to the five year Syrian civil war. The Iranians and Russians are backing Bashar al-Assad, and the U.S. wants him gone. I don’t see how this will happen peacefully when it hasn’t been done with force and more than 250,000 dead in the crisis. Is John Kerry just going to talk Assad out of power now that Russia is clearly keeping him in power by force? He’s not leaving.

Meanwhile, the U.S. is going to be sending “advisers” into Iraq and Syria. The program to train and arm the so-called “moderate rebels” was a disaster. The Pentagon had a hard time finding the so-called “moderate rebels” to train. The U.S. will not have that much of a problem in Iraq but will have to fight alongside of Iran and forces friendly to Iran. Syria will present a huge and dangerous problem. How are the U.S. advisers going to not be captured by ISIS or al Qaeda? How long do you think it will take to see U.S. forces beheaded on camera? On top of that, U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter said, this week, he is now going to have “direct action on the ground.” Russia is protesting U.S. ground forces being used in Syria, calling that “illegal” and a “big mistake.” So, the U.S. will fight with Russia and Iran against ISIS in Iraq, and fight against Iran and Russia alongside the “moderate rebels” being helped by al-Qaeda and ISIS in Syria?  What kind of foreign policy is this? This is both confusing and dangerous for our military.

Big surprise, the Fed is not going to raise rates. Here’s where it gets “Baghdad Bob” funny. The Fed is still hinting that it will raise rates in December. You can’t make this up and this is, yet another, blow to Fed credibility. They cannot afford to raise rates—ever. Every week it’s one dreadful economic headline after another. On top of that, the coordination between global central banks seems to be ramping up even greater to continue to prop up the system. Gregory Mannarino ( says it used to be individual Fed Presidents making statements and individual central banks taking action. Now, Mannarino says it looks to be coordinated on a global scale. As the system gets weaker and weaker, the pressure and coordination by central banks increases. The only question is how long can this go on?

Here’s a headline you should have seen from the GOP debate, “Democrats have the Ultimate Super PAC in MSM.” That’s what Senator and Presidential candidate Marco Rubio said, but the mainstream media (MSM) would not touch it. How about Dem front-runner “Hillary Clinton Exposed as Liar says Marco Rubio.” Those should have been the headlines out of the GOP debate, and the MSM would have sold papers and gotten lots of attention and revenue. You will never see this because, as Rubio says, the MSM Clinton super PAC is helping her out and ignoring his quotes because the MSM knows they are true.

    Well done Greg , we have a concoction of fantasy and fiction, parody and farce, from absurd to ridiculous, you wearing a top hat and twirling a cane, the ringmaster in the greatest show on earth circus, and it will keep going merrily along until the band stops playing and the lights go out.

    If gods in charge and the world is in the state it’s in, then perhaps god should be sacked.

    • Charles H


      All proceeds from the Spiritual realm on down – a war of Good and Evil, which separates the wheat from the chaff: based on their own decision. The Test – which side will you be on? The “god of this world” (Satan) has power and authority; is tearing it up; and gains ascendency; as we see evil proliferate. The true God (of the Bible) will, in time, fulfill what He has written; and conclude this running Morality Play with complete renovation that brings a new creation into eternal realms. The problem is: whether one becomes pro-active in solving for themselves their position; or just complains and lays blame elsewhere. That a singular God has made a singular way for everyone to be right: is enough, and fair, and equal to All. It is Man who blows the opportunity off. God cannot be indicted whatsoever.

        Charles this morning I realized I have given God all of my heart when I went to the throne in worship while sitting on the toilet.

        • Charles H


          What a MOVING description! However, I am of the opinion that “giving your heart” to God is NOT technically correct; and is therefore an inaccuracy that borders on an error.

          The idea of there being nothing you can do to merit salvation, is basic. Then there is nothing one can do to change or modify God’s condition of unmerited Grace, which must be entered: it is then a matter of the Will, of purpose, to be where He can actually meet you. Adoption of a Biblical Faith – to the point of trusting is the positioning. If you don’t want it; or think you should tell God where HE is wrong, and what He should do; it’s your skin.
          Once having a faith that agrees with God in His Word, the Bible: the real deal is Repenting of Sin and casting yourself on the Mercies of God; receiving for yourself the Person and sacrificial work Jesus Christ did on the cross, and the proof of His Resurrection. By casting yourself on the Mercies of God: you are allowing God’s Grace to be the active principle – not ‘GIVING your whole heart’; though in the seeking after God – a whole heart is involved in the sense of complete honesty and sincerity before Him. Salvation is a free gift one must receive – not a bargain by the offer of a heart. This premise of “giving your whole heart to God’ is NOT part of the initial steps necessary to become first a born-again Christian. One is not alive until they are viably born. One does not become a Christian until he is viably Born-again by God Himself, when the conditions of Repentance and Faith are met, and Grace is realized by dependence upon God’s mercy alone – in the issue of receiving the ‘gift’ of Salvation.

          What I don’t understand is – why hang around here, where politically and economically people are preparing themselves for calamity. Most people here agree – what a lie the world is broadcasting, which makes them a small minority which the majority think are nuts. Why all the pains and participation preparing for trouble in this world; but give a real hard time to those who are preparing for Eternity?
          I say – I’m inside; and I testify it is real and true. You are outside, and say: baloney. I say, that you can’t know unless you are inside. You say… well – we have the example above.
          Christians are messengers. If people shoot the messengers : it is because they have a problem with the message; and by extension the Author. Honestly – if you have a problem with God: take it up with God. Harpooning people makes you look quite ugly.
          The Western World is about to breakdown – and this site is about informing and helping people to prepare for what’s ahead. Christianity does little different in that it speaks about the spiritual bridge ahead being out, and gives the prescription to avoid it.
          I am sorry you feel compelled to ridicule those who are doing a real service; albeit one you obviously strongly disagree with. You don’t think – “God is in control”? Fine.
          Just remember it is you who have painted the word-picture in the eyes of all the readers here: throne, worship, and all. That is how you are seen, now – and will be remembered. Likely you will hit eternity ‘caught with your pants down’ also.

          • JC Davis

            To fill your heart with the love of God you must first empty your heart from love of yourself. Cast in all of your cares on Jesus and he will care for them. Knowledge profit nothing in the day of judgment. I answer to God alone. Men well they don’t know my heart. I live my days to make God smile. Prepping is a part of it.

          • JC Davis

            Charles. I hope you don’t find yourself praying on a toilet that you don’t pass blood from internal bleeding as I was praying. You really don’t have a clue how hurtful it was to have you tell me I am on the outside of God. Well If I am on the outside the Jesus is there with me. I believe he will heal my bleeding problems, but your problem I would not want to have.

            • Charles H


              One has only what is given to deal with in which to work. I read your comment to my wife – and she concluded the same as I. Actually she had worse to say.
              If there had been any more details given, apart from the very sparse language: likely I would have understood what you were expressing. In that I have had to be provided more details in a separate comment in order to understand your situation – is the telling detail. That being said: I apologize for misunderstanding your comment. I sincerely ask your forgiveness for the additional pain I caused you.

              I know of Internal Bleeding – my father lost most of his colon to Diverticulitis. And living in Mexico – I am subject to a deluge of intestinal problems. I don’t expect to live much past seventy at the rate of decline I perceive. And also the infections here are well ahead of most US bacteria in being drug-resistant.

              Concerning being “in Christ”, or not, has always been a concern for me. Call me names; tell me I’m not a Christian; or argue until one is hoarse: and I will not be shaken from the inward witness and confirmation of God the Holy Spirit. This is His purpose, besides being the Agent of the New Birth – to indwell and confirm the verity of Scripture and spiritual reality of new life. I was saved back in ’73; but then ran-around in the world, choosing ignorance and self-will. But the spiritual adoption was a done deal then – as there came an end to patience and I received chastisement as a son: first physically, then emotionally.
              When these chastisements came, there was also certainty of the WHY, that came with them. So I can say that there is a period of time, an interim of spiritual immaturity one can hide in or excuse in being a babe in Christ: but at some point growth must take place. And the object of growth is to proceed to a maturity which lights the spiritual candle that should not be hid.
              I do not know your history, or your relationship with Jesus Christ. What I most worry about is people FALLING SHORT of real salvation. “God” is such a generic term, and usually used by atheists, as it can mean any that claims to be (supernatural) God. And since there is no other name (Jesus Christ) in which we must be saved: this can be misleading.
              The idea of ‘giving God all one’s heart’ has been a contention in Gospel evangelization – and so I explained WHY. The Big Issue of Eternity is basically “if the shoe fits”. It all breaks down to whether you are in, or you are out. If you ARE in – then the internal witness of the Holy Spirit should be an unshakeable reality. I don’t believe the Triune God of the Bible intends that an eternal work of Grace in Salvation should not be known or of benefit to those who claim to believe. Not, at least, for much time from conversion. Christianity is NOT a ‘hope so’ Faith: it is a “know so” Faith. This the Bible itself substantiates.

              So – please forgive me for causing you additional pain. My sincere intention was to insure the real understanding of Salvation was set-out. Your completely unconventional place of worship threw me a curve, and I missed it. I am sorry. CH

                We are good Charles. I just need to not post as much. Like I told the girl at the store when she asked paper or plastic? I said neither I am a man I can handle it.

      You would love the book of Habakkuk, if you have not already read it you should. The author expresses your sentiments rather powerfully, and you can spend a great deal of time trying to fathom the conclusion…..if you’re into that kinda thing of course.

    Greg. USA Watchdog readers.
    Let me be the first to inform you that China has just opened up its first bond market in Frankfort Germany, scheduled to go online in November.

    Its time to wakeup and smell the Yuan. In case you’re not getting it, (according to some of the post I’ve read) ……Germany… (who is the central hub of the EU) is preparing to use the RMB for exchange.

    So, what does that tell you?
    1.) The RMB will be given reserve currency status in November.
    2.) Countries of the EU will be buying something else besides U.S. Treasuries.

    Hello! Janet Yellen. Its time to kick the press into hyper drive.

    • Jerry

      I would like to couple my last post with a press release that the Bank of International Settlements put out almost a year ago.

      I find its interesting that Frankfort just happened to be chosen by the Chinese as the central hub for their RMB bond market. The Bank of International Settlements just happens to have deep roots in Germany. In fact some people believe that they were created by the Nazi’s. Isn’t it interesting, that this sequence of events just happened to occur at about the same time Deutsche Bank was laying off 15,000 employee’s?

      The bottom line. The Federal Reserve Bank takes its marching orders from the BIS. I believe that once they feel the Chinese Exchange System is fully functional and ready, they will tell the Fed to raise interest rates. I don’t have to tell you what that means.

      • paul

        Jerry … for the yuan to compete with the US dollar as a reserve currency … China must begin to produce almost as many “yuan bonds” as the US has Treasury bonds … so nations can make the switch from holding US Treasuries to holding Yuan Bonds (as a reserve replacement) … currently China has only produced and sold about 2% of what the US has outstanding in Treasury’s … so as of yet … the world really has nowhere to go even if they wanted out of the dollar … all they can do presently is switch into more Yen and Euro paper … the only way I can see things happening quickly is if China massively inflates its debt (selling yuan bonds) … but then it puts itself in the same position as the US … massive debt … which is not a very good thing to have … so to avoid “even more paper debt” in the world … the Chinese must somehow make whatever little debt they have now “worth more” to the nations that buy it … and that would be to back their Yuan Bonds with gold … where every Yuan is backed with the equivalent of $50 US dollars (at $10,000 dollar gold that would amount to 0.005 ounces of gold for each Yuan) … only by backing the Yuan with gold will nations exchange two hundred(200) [$10,000 US dollar Treasury Notes] for one(1) [Y10,000 Yuan Note] … where the $10,000 US Treasury Note is worth “zero gold” … and the Y10,000 Yuan Note would be worth (200 x 0.005 ounces of gold) … or more simply … one $10,000 dollar US Treasury Note will be worth “zero gold” but one Y10,000 Yuan Note will be convertible into one ounce of gold!

        Now for gold to be worth $50,000 dollars per ounce the way Jim Sinclair thinks it will … the Chinese will have to make one Yuan equal $5 dollars … and therefore 10,000 Yuan would be convertible into $50,000 dollars … making one Yuan worth (0.0001 ounce of gold).

        So in summary: if the Yuan is made convertible into $5 US dollars on the FOREX exchange (and that “one” Yuan is backed by and convertible into 0.0001 ounce of gold) … then one ounce of gold will be worth $50,000 US dollars!

        • paul

          With the Yuan selling for $0.16 cents right now … and assuming the Chinese back the Yuan with 0.0001 ounce of gold … driving the price of the Yuan to $5 dollars each … some may get the idea of opening a Yuan currency account so that when the gold backing occurs they will make 31.25 times their money … but why hold paper?? … backed by the Chinese promise to pay you gold … when you can simply buy a physical ounce of gold now for $1200 dollars and when it rises to $50,000 dollars per ounce you will make 41.66 times your money … which is 10 times more money for you (without holding someone else’s debt)!

          • paul

            For those Americans that don’t buy gold and simply hold “dollars” under their mattress … Chinese goods that only cost $0.16 cents now are going to cost $5 dollars … that is the true hyper-inflation that awaits you … so all you people out there listening to the deflationists like Dent, Armstrong,etc., etc. … will be in a world of hurt when the paper dollars under your mattress buy you 30 times less goods … while gold under your mattress buys you 40 times more!

            • Deanna Johnston Clark

              We who care have avoided any slave made goods for years…so Toys R Us and Walmart become Nieman Marcus!! It’s high time Americans discovered the good stuff still made in the US anyway.

  5. paul

    Abortion is either 1) a question of what is morally right and morally wrong … or 2) how much evil we as humans “can accept” before we say “no more it’s just not right” … for the “elite types” who supposedly eat babies and drink their blood … they will say there is absolutely nothing wrong with abortions “even if the babies feel pain while being chopped up and finally murdered” in the womb … as for the “Neo-con types” they will say what’s the difference if we kill them at 3 months of age or send them to Syria at 18 yrs old to be aborted … as for the “highly religious types” … they will be against killing “at any age” and speak out against all the warmongers who kill innocent women and children for any reason … and then there are the “ordinary types” who don’t like killing “yet will accept it” if it makes their life easier … these “moral agnostics” may know what is morally right and morally wrong but the only thing that counts with them is what makes their life easier … irrespective of the morality of their actions … these “ordinary types” can seen here …

    However sometimes “moral agnostics” have a change of heart … and can’t live with themselves doing evil things … and they switch from the dark side to the right side …

    The three Republican hold outs … who want to continue to give “our tax dollars” to Planned Parenthood to pay the salary’s of these “grave diggers” … will only change sides if it is going to affect the votes they receive in the next election … however what of the legality of Senators supporting an organization where the workers get to make an extra $50 dollars “on the side” for each abortion (probably off the books and tax free) … and what about the legality of the “Frankenstein type” research facilities that solicit killing be done “in particular ways” for the supposed purpose ” of been for the greater benefit of society”? … like for instance making our Pepsi taste better, etc.  …

    • brian

      We cannot legislate morality, as John Adams pointed out so long ago. A constitutional republic which not only recognizes but guarantees the God given rights of the individual is wholly inadequate for an immoral or irreligious people. Looking around I guess we can kiss our liberty and everything that goes with it, such as the value and sanctity of our lives, good bye. Cry your tears now and get ready to be force marched and dragged by the lips and gums through a shrieking hell for an unknowable amount of time. This sucks.

      • Charles H


        While you are a little ‘dark’ in composure: I think you are quite correct in assessment. The morality a Constitutional Republic depends upon to preserve it – was not to come, or be formed from Laws; but from the defining document which preceded it. And THAT is now anathema politically and culturally.

      • Jeremy

        We can have laws against immorality which define our society and teach to those laws. This doesn’t address the root cause which is a heart issue. However, murder, theft, traffic violations all have moral root and violations have consequences if you are caught. That doesn’t prevent people from still choosing to violate the law though. I think abortion and sexual immorality could be added back into the law with the same view.

    Greg it has been a interesting week. Both the interviews, and comments on this site were informative, and sometimes entertaining. I would like to see a RNC debate with some of the commenters from this site asking there free thinking questions.

  7. paul

    The most pertinent question we should be asking ourselves about Hillary is … “what did she promise to others” … to receive all those donations to the Clinton foundation? … looking at the “size of the foundation” we should have some idea as to how many favors she probably owes to those special interest groups that made donations … the next thing we should ask ourselves is … is this the type of person who will be working as President to do what is best for the American people as a whole … or will she just be catering to the special interests? … so it is not so much what she says on the campaign trail or in debates with her rivals … we should be looking at the size of the Clinton foundation, how fast it is growing and if “inurement” is going on … … and if it is found “inurement” is going on … it will be the solid proof we need to show “she will do things” for money!

  8. FC

    Greg, I believe during the Republican Debate on Wednesday evening, which by the way was pathetically moderated by the 3 Stooges on CNBC………….Mick Huckabee, gave a wonderful analogy of today’s Government.

    If you saw the Blimp that was cut loose from Maryland today, it’s a perfect example of Government ………………what we have is something that Government had made, basically a bag of gas that cut loose and destroyed everything in it’s path, left thousands of people powerless, but we couldn’t get rid of it, because we had too much money invested it and had to keep it.

    And watching that Blimp on TV, it seemed like it was all happening in slow motion, the same way this collapse is occurring, until finally the bag rips and there’s nothing, but thin air.

    The economy has never “recovered” but the fed is detemined to say it has and prove it with a rate hike.

    The central banks coordinate their moves which is why i dont subscribe to the “currency wars” theory.

    I have been expecting the Fed to raise rates, not because the economy is improving, but that they would hike rates to protect their credibility and hence the dollar.

    The dollar, however, has held up despite the six year delay in raising rates. The fed may not have to raise rates given the ECB and BOJ are still extremely “accomodative” .

    Seems that just talking about rate hikes for a year has worked.

    The fed will raise rates when they see a real threat to the dollar. I would have thought that with china dumping treasuries and other dedollarization initiatives that demand for US treasuries and the dollar.

    So far demand has held up.

    If it appears it wont, that is when the Fed will raise rates.

  14. Spanky

    Great wrap-up, Greg.
    Years ago, I watched CNBC regularly. I wouldn’t miss a minute, thinking that the moderators were in touch with what was happening in the financial world. But, it didn’t take long until I recognized that I couldn’t have been more wrong. At some point I realize that every time CNBC interviewed a mover-and-shaker in the financial world-like Bernanke, or Larry Summers, or Tim Geithner-the interviewer would toss the guest one softball question after another. CNBC didn’t even try to hold the interviewee’s feet to the fire. The first (and last) interview that I watched with Becky Quick going one on one with Warren Buffet was a complete waste of time. There wasn’t anything substantial that anyone interested in finance and the economy could take away from that interview. By the way, I suspect that the avuncular persona that Buffet exudes on television is a masterful veneer that hides a crafty and “don’t mess with me or I’ll ruin you for life” attitude.
    The only individual on the CNBC network that I respect is Rick Santelli. The rest, as far as I’m concerned, are sycophants and arrogant fools.

  15. Jerry

    This is how desperate the western banking cabal is. Trying to provoke a war with China. Fortunately the Chinese know what a wounded animal looks like, that has its foot caught in a bear (Russia) trap.

    Right, wrong, or indifferent, the BRIC Alliance and the rest of the world have had enough of U.S. hegemony. How embarrassing? We pull this stunt at about the same time we make idle threats to go into Syria and help eradicate ISIS……….. Right. This is a rudderless ship circling the bowl before the drop.

    • paul

      John McCain, chairman of the U.S. Senate’s Armed Services Committee (speaking in reference to China and the South China Sea) can be made to sound just like Putin:

      McCain said: “Today’s ruling is an important step forward in upholding international law against China’s attempts to assert vast and, in my view, questionable claims in the South China Sea.”

      Now substitute “US for China” and “Syria for the South China Sea” … and this is how McCain’s statement above would read:

      “Today’s ruling is an important step forward in upholding international law against US attempts to assert vast and, in my view, questionable claims in Syria.”

      I don’t know whether to laugh (because Putin’s move was so superbly clever) or to cry (because I’m American). Here’s the story – United States: “We are in the Middle East to fight this uniquely evil, head chopping band of utterly depraved creatures! We have no ulterior motives whatsoever! What is this ‘PNAC’ thingie, anyway?” Putin: Well, gee, in that case let me help you! You couldn’t possibly have any objection to my joining your noble endeavor, now could you? I have no ulterior motives whatsoever. What is this thing called ‘oil’ anyway? And….in any case, the elected government of Syria invited me.”

    Greg, excellent post. I am spreading it as far and as widely as I can through social media.
    Personally, I have transitioned from attempting to call my fellow citizens to action, to have ears to hear, and eyes to see. I had hope that enough would see the signs and discern the season before it is too late. I was wrong. My personal belief is that the gates of hell have been opened, and rest in faith on the Word.

    Hence, your closing sentences have great power.

    We are called to ‘occupy’. This means to remain in place, to parry each thrust, but most importantly, to position ourselves to be as useful and helpful to the remnant as we can possibly be.

    I agree that the only logical conclusion one can reach is that the debt is just funny money, and the growing bellicose words and nefarious deeds expose the plan for how that debt will be retired.

    Your blog is of the highest quality, and gets better each posting. It is a valuable service for those who know the season.

    Fear not. And occupy.

    Thank you Greg.

      Good post Noel. It is indeed discouraging trying to alert people. I like you have turned to getting ready to help the remnant. Even that will be a small number.

    Hi Greg,

    An enigma from an unrelated story…

    OK. People are afraid that the glaciers from Greenland and the Antarctica are going to completely melt away and inundate the world and it’s coastal cities.

    From this graphic of the temperature records at the GISP2 ice core in Greenland, we know we had hot spells in the past.

    In the Minoan period, some 3300 years ago, temperatures shot up at some –28,7C. In the Roman period, 2000 years ago, they shot up at some –29,5C, and in the medieval period, they shot up at some –30,5C. During the little ice age, some 350 years ago, they were down at about –32,0C.


    If today we can get temperature records from 10000 years ago and beyond from those ice cores, then those glaciers never melted away, despite those hot spells.

    If the temperatures during those hot spells were in the region of –30C, then it would take a lot more then a mere 10C increase to melt them away and inundate everything.

    The summit of the GISP2 ice core is right smack in the middle of Greenland at an altitude of 3027m. It will never melt away unless temperatures rise some 30C degrees.

    So… Enough of those catastrophic Halloween stories !

      Tax revenue is not enough to keep the banks solvent anymore … so “Zimbabwe Yellen” is funneling a Trillion dollars per month to the bankers in a “stealth QE4” so they can pay off on their failed oil derivatives … this is being implemented by the banks simply selling a Trillion dollars worth of Fed Treasuries “naked short” … upon selling the Fed puts the Trillion in cash directly in the banks account … however … since the banks don’t own any Treasuries (they are shorting naked) “three days later when the Treasury Certificates must arrive at the Fed they don’t … but the Fed “does not demand that the banks cover their naked shorts” … the Fed simply lists on their balance sheet “that there was a failure to deliver” … and the Fed does not ask for the Trillion dollars back they gave the banks! … the effect is … “a free Trillion dollars” is being given to the banks every month to cover all their bad oil derivatives currently imploding … and to “give cover” to the bankers still outstanding “naked short Treasury positions” (they failed to deliver) the Fed “must work to keep interest rates up” to make sure the banks naked short Treasury positions (still outstanding and never delivered) don’t ever go against the bankers (just in case the banks are forced by the “Certificate Clearing Authorities” to make good on their naked shorts.

    Greg: don’t be confused about the Syrian situation; it is really quite obvious. Just understand the PNAC Doctrine for regime change in the ME so that Israel can eventually control the entire region and the puppet masters can control all the resources, as well as deny Russia’s sale of energy to Europe. US hegemony must be maintained at all cost, regardless of the death and destruction it entails.

    Americans should applaud the checkmate by Putin and Iran. We don’t need the expense or casualties in these endless wars that enrich only the 1% and the MIC, while destroying what’s left of the American Dream.

    • Greg Hunter

      It is looking like Iran and Russia will control the region.

      • Lynn

        What if nothing we know is the truth. There’s no govt, no law that says we owe taxes to the IRS (a foreign corporation), our churches 501c corp., the weakness of the country being accelerated, Russia being propped up to make a 1 world govt easier to implement, what if they are all under the same umbrella and we are nothing more than pawns in their game for hundreds of years. What if all of this is true? We only have one thing to fall back on…it is love for each other. But if that were to happen, they must keep the power and implement their agendas to get us into a world war so their mission is complete. The only ones who have it right? The animals and nature created to show us beauty, love of a mother to her offspring, and a knowing to stay far away from us. God bless our country, Greg Hunter, and those who are trying to shine a light on their deception.

    Thanks Greg, excellent news wrap but no surprises. The FED cannot raise rates,, no surprise there, except maybe to some of the Wall Street FED watchers and CNBC analysts. Speaking of CNBC, how can we be surprised that the MSM is in the tank for Hillary? How can we be surprised that O’s war policy is confusing? The policy seems to be bipolar, one pole being Syria and the other Iraq. I won’t speculate as to how they settled on these conflicting policies; however, am I mistaken or do we have an academic in charge of the Defense Department? Let’s not denigrate all academia though, I had some good teachers in grade school.

    Have a great weekend. Who’s on tap for Monday?

    Thanks again.

    “Bagdad Bob” funny. Greg, you crack me up. Insightful analysis. I see some are saying that Hildabeast is going to be elected. I agree with you. Obama knows the Clinton’s well deserved Reputation of punishing enemies and the Obamas and the Clinton’s are enemies. They hate each other. I don’t see Obamas allowing the Clinton’s to hold sway over them. That is called suicide.

    Day of the Dead.
    “Fat, Ugly, and Wear Army Boots”…

    Special Ops are already on the ground in Syria. Perhaps the soldier killed last week in the raid in Iraq was not in Iraq. The released video of the raid appeared fake. None of the prisoners had cuffs on as they were being freed. Interesting how the lighting was perfect and there happened to be an IS flag on the wall. Perhaps the soldier was killed in a Russian bombing mission.
    RIP MSG Wheeler. Sua Sponte, Ranger.

    Things are getting worse and there is no truth from Washington. They prepare for war while the people sleep. The US public will be the last to know. Keep texting and staring into the small screen. The walking dead.

  26. vincent_g

    Greg – you left out the new deal the President made with Indonesia.
    He wants Indonesia to help bring calm to all Muslims.

    There is no doubt that the US foreign policy looks more like a excerpt of Mad Magazine.

    Once again the debt limit can not be limited as the nature of the monetary system is as such that it requires more debt every year or the whole system will collapse.

    If you balance the budget the system collapses!!

    The only way to fix it is to end the federal reserve and end this debt based money system.

    The debate on balancing the budget is a smoke screen.
    It’s designed to take your attention away from the bad boys ( The Fed )
    It’s designed to make you think the trouble is because the people in congress can not handle money proper.
    It’s all fake !!!

    You can’t balance the budget!!

    Last is Marco Rubio – Even though he made good points I would not give him a headline. I can not support anyone that supports expansion of H1B visa!

    I have personally seen people that were hired by companies like Standard and Poor’s or Merrill Lynch and so many others.
    These people were brought in from India from consulting companies which paid these workers $20 an hour while they collected $60 an hour for these workers.
    This quickly brought down the labor fees for both consultants and full time workers.

    Rates for consultants fell to $40 per hour very quickly and well you can ask the people at Disney how they felt about it.

    Great system we have – lets give the low paying jobs to these people crashing the border. Americans don’t want to do these jobs is what we are told.
    And while we are at it lets farm out the middle class jobs to India and China.
    Americans want too much money for phone support jobs or manufacturing jobs.
    Lets bring in more H1B workers since Americans are too lazy to learn high tech jobs.

    Ok now that we gave away all our jobs to low paid people from India and China who will pay the tax?
    Who will buy the houses that you keep pushing the price higher and higher?

    They don’t care about the people – they care about the banks.
    They can’t let the price of property fall or the banks will have problems.
    Oh no we can’t allow a bank to have problems.

    But you really don’t need a job now do you?
    You will be ok – we will give you food stamps and a little money to spend.

    This picture I paint really suc – well you get the idea.

    The sad thing about it is it’s reality and for God knows what reason people just don’t see the truth.

    Forget the budget it’s smoke and mirrors.
    End the Fed and be done with it already!

    Bring back the original intent of Glass Steagall.
    Just as Governments are Banks also are necessary evils too.

    Another great WNW Greg. Thanks. Some of my own thoughts for you and our fellow bloggers… Our intervention around the world is appalling! While our own country falls apart. While we have un-payable debts. While SS and MC are bankrupt. While soon millions of seniors will be told they have to get by on less. While soon ALL pensioners at city, state, and federal level will be told there is not enough money for us to keep our promises to you. While our borders are wide open and any terrorist can come right on in and do whatever they want. While those same borders are allowing millions through that are draining our welfare coffers. What is going on? Seems Washington is deliberately trying to destroy not only our country but the world… Chip

    “So, the U.S. will fight with Russia and Iran against ISIS in Iraq, and fight against Iran and Russia alongside the “moderate rebels” being helped by al-Qaeda and ISIS in Syria?”

    Warmongering neocons actually make liberals look good. Heck, they make Communist Russia look good. Neocons are obsessed with continuous unjust, unconstitutional wars. Soon America will have TWO generations which know of nothing but constant war. Where do neocons get the moral authority to shed innocent blood? That doesn’t matter to neocons. But it will to God.

    How long do you think it will take to see U.S. forces beheaded on camera?

    I really don’t think there is any difference between cutting off your enemy’s head versus blowing their body to smithereens with a drone. Dead is dead and both are extremely gruesome. Maybe the one difference is that it’s okay when “our” guys do it and not okay when “their” guys do it.

    As a Christian I want to add this about pro-life. I’ve read all the arguments for 42 years and helped girls through crisis pregnancies with clothes and prayer and childcare…so I’m not just shooting my mouth off to feel righteous.
    Our entire sweatshop economy, including here in America, is based on sterile women…birth control, abortion, or simple slave labor that can’t move out of a factory dorm to form a family of any kind.
    So who benefits from all this? Many western Christians do.
    I saw a little interview with a Vietnamese factory girl who makes shoes for big American feet. She said her dream was to someday marry and have a child, but that seemed far away. She is legion.
    Until pro life means more than preaching and pretty pamphlets with pink and blue baby blankets…maybe we could at least vote with our buying habits and stop being so smug. Hobby Lobby was built on the backs of girls like that above. Let’s get real.

    • Jeremy

      We need to be-careful of broad-brushing all Christians or all “fill in the blank”s. Abortion is terrible and no amount of circumstances will change that. There are Christians involved but the body of Christ has many parts and there would be a lot more if people were out preaching and teaching and making disciples.
      We also need to realize that taking jobs away from under developed countries is not the answer but to keep the factories accountable by investigating and by keeping the western companies using those factories accountable.
      Ultimately, hearts need to be reached for Christ.

    Greg, news from the front lines of the migrant issue in Europe from one of my friends…

    Spoke to my niece in Germany on the weekend. She said that in around northern Germany migrants were put up in former Army barracks because it was the only space available. They have been smashing the furniture because they do not like the accommodations. Some have been put up in Army style tents and have threatened to burn the tents if they do not get a better place to live. Germany is nuts. They should have closed the borders. In addition like the article below they are straining an already strained medical system. Hope we are not so stupid. We will never be able to help these people because they do not want to change or adapt. So they should stay where they are.
    And again the media never reports anything properly. All they show is some child drowning to pull at our heart strings. In reality the migrants don’t care because they will just have more children. Funny that no one ever worried about Cubans who fled and also drowned or Mexicans trying to get across the borders. But we are bent over double to help the middle east even though they hate us. We will always be infidels to them.
    I have friends in Europe and one of them directed me to the following today. This is an eyewitness story from a doctor working in Germany at a Munich hospital, a retired physician from the Czech Republic who went to work there because they needed additional help. This is part of her email from Germany:
    ———-EMAIL FROM GERMANY —————

    Yesterday, at the hospital we had a meeting about how the situation here and at the other Munich hospitals is unsustainable. Clinics cannot handle emergencies, so they are starting to send everything to the hospitals.

    Many Muslims are refusing treatment by female staff and, we women are refusing to go among those animals, especially from Africa. Relations between the staff and migrants are going from bad to worse. Since last weekend, migrants going to the hospitals must be accompanied by police with K-9 units.

    Many migrants have AIDS, syphilis, open TB and many exotic diseases. If they receive a prescription in the pharmacy, they learn they have to pay cash. This leads to unbelievable outbursts, especially when it is about drugs for the children. They abandon their children with pharmacy staff with the words: “So, cure them here yourselves!” So the police are not just guarding the clinics and hospitals, but also large pharmacies.

    Where are all those who had welcomed in front of TV cameras, with signs at train stations? Yes, for now, the border has been closed, but a million of them are already here and we will definitely not be able to get rid of them.

    Until now, the number of unemployed in Germany was 2.2 million. Now it will be at least 3.5 million. Most of these people are completely unemployable. A bare minimum of them have any education. What is more, their women usually do not work at all. I estimate that one in ten is pregnant. They have brought along infants and little kids under six, many emaciated and neglected. If this continues and German re-opens its borders, I’m going home to the Czech Republic. Nobody can keep me here in this situation, not even at double the salary that I make at home. I went to Germany, not to Africa or the Middle East.

    Even the professor who heads our department told us how sad it makes him to see the cleaning woman, who for 800 Euros cleans every day for years, and then meet young men in the hallways who just wait with their hand outstretched, want everything for free, and when they don’t get it they throw a fit.

    I really don’t need this! But I’m afraid that if I return, that at some point it will be the same in the Czech Republic. If the Germans, with their nature cannot handle this, there in the Czech Republic it would be total chaos. Nobody who has not come in contact with them has any idea what kind of animals they are, especially the ones from Africa, and how Muslims act superior to our staff, regarding their religious accommodation. For now, the local hospital staff has not come down with the diseases they brought here, but, with so many hundreds of patients every day – this is just a question of time.

    In a hospital near the Rhine, migrants attacked the staff with knives after they had handed over an 8-month-old on the brink of death, which they had dragged across half of Europe for three months. The child died in two days, despite having received top care at one of the best pediatric clinics in Germany. The physician had to undergo surgery and two nurses are laid up in the ICU. Nobody has been punished.

    The local press is forbidden to write about it. What would have happened to a German if he had stabbed a doctor and nurses with a knife? Or if he had flung his own syphilis-infected urine into a nurse’s face and so threatened her with infection? At a minimum he’d go straight to jail and later to court. With these people – so far, nothing has happened.

    And so I ask, where are all those greeters and receivers from the train stations? Sitting pretty at home, enjoying their non-profits and looking forward to more trains. If it were up to me I would round up all these greeters and bring them here first to our hospital’s emergency ward, as attendants. Then, into one building with the migrants so they can look after them there themselves, without armed police, without police dogs who today are in every hospital here in Bavaria.

    I would like to thank you for your guidance and think you are somewhat right, but you are a little off the target.
    The true problem is STATISM and ” The Financialization of the Economy”…
    look up author Joan McCullough, Longford Associates. The take-over of the United
    States Government and the Gross National Product goes back a long way:
    “Jackson continued to denounce the “perfidy and treachery” of banks”
    He dismantled the first FEDERAL BANK,
    Only two presidents would have done the same thing: Lincoln and Kennedy….

    “Financialization is characterized by the accrual of profits primarily thru financial channels (allocating or exchanging capital in anticipation of interest, divvies or capital gains) as opposed to accrual of profits thru trade and the production of goods/services.”

    Yes Greg, God and His special people are in charge. Fear not!
    You ask, who is in charge of American foreign policy? Guess who? Ever hear the term Neo-con?
    You point out the bias of the major corporate media. Guess who controls 95 percent of the main stream media in the US and Canada?
    Maybe you didn’t read about the Iraqi capture of a high ranking Israeli military officer along with some his ISIS, ISIL, IS that he was leading. Do you think that this Israeli officer is the only one advising and leading al Quada and the ISIS gang.

    Lets see if we can get all this straight.
    We know who were the “intellectuals” that formed the policies for the US invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, and turned Libya into a hell hole and are doing the same to Syria. Russia has had it put to here, and is trying to save Syria from the fate of Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya.
    We know or should know who controls the mass media in the US and most of Europe.
    We know or should know by now who has been arming, funding and training and leading the ISIS, ISIL, IS and the other Muslim animals.
    We know or should know that the vast majority of he Muslims invaders of Western Europe, and soon coming to a village near you in America, are young males, who have been committing mass rape of White women. And the guess who controls the governments and media in Europe are doing nothing about it.

    Fear not Greg, God and His people are in control.

    Greg, great week and very informative information and wrap-up today. While I am watching you I am also watching FOX news show what a great month it was for the stock market. The lies and spin that are told by the MSM are wearing thin. The irony is that I am now more apt to view RT than any MSM source. After the Benghazi hearings this week I have finally come to the conclusion that there is no rule of law in the US anymore. At best there is one set of laws for the little people and another set of laws for the elite and the connected. Thank you for remaining positive but it is a challenge.

    There’s nothing like shoving a group of U.S. Special Forces into a battlefield hot zone composed of multiple unilateral forces? The mans either lost hi marbles, or he’s trying to start WWIII.

    With no strategic value, or viable plan of any kind, this smells of desperation.

    • eddiemd

      Special Forces have been in and around Syria for the past 5 years. Maybe longer.

      The cover story is that they are going in now. Maybe it has to do with the death of MSG Wheeler recently on the supposed raid in Iraq. MSG Wheeler might have been the team sergeant of a SITGA detachment inside Syria and taken out with a Russian missile.

    Be careful of thinking of a nation as the sum of its leaders. What may be helpful is to distinguish the nation and its land and history from the people currently running it. That may sound obvious, but it offers an aid to understanding the flow of influence in a country like China, Russia, or the United States. It is true that China and Russia are becoming powerful militarily, but it is not true that they are against President Obama. It will become very obvious in another couple of years the influence behind Putin and Xi. Putin is not who many of you think he is. But neither is Obama. Be careful of thinking that the two men are at odds with each other. The way things happen in the next two years shows that this is not true. These men seem to walk apart, but they hold the same wheel.

    China will have gold, Chicago will control silver.

    But first Europa will fall, and rise again.

    • Beligarant

      @CLS : Any updates on your prophetic forecasts? I’ve seen several people make forecasts on this and similar sites and so far they’ve all crashed and burned. According to Marshall Swing on Silver Doctors, silver should no longer be available for sale. The economy was supposed to collapse a few weeks ago. Jerry on this site, who is a constant poster, made a forecast over a year ago that Russia would go to war with NATO in 2014 and win which would cause the dollar to collapse. I smirked at his prediction then and I’m laughing at it now. I quit reading his postings on this site after he made such a wild forecast and soon will quit reading yours. There’s a non-ending parade of self appointed guru’s which have given out nothing but bad advice to everyone on these websites creating a lot of misery. I believe you are about to join their ranks. Sinclair said gold would never go below $1600 again. Andy Hoffman said silver would never go below $30, Bo Ploney said…Bill Holter said the recent Chinese chemical explosion was a nuclear weapon or something…and the list just goes on and on and on. So what say you and your forecast? If you are correct it will be the call of the decade but having my doubts right now.

    I don’t doubt that the US has significant leadership problems. Our president was unqualified from day 1 and has acted more like a political activist than a statesman. Having said that, I am shocked by how many anti-american posts there are here and on other sites. China is seriously messed up (I have visited often) and they are horrific polluters, execute political prisoners and are subsidizing their businesses to dump their goods all over the world, (Why the US doesn’t put up tariffs is a sign of something…fear, corruptiion, incompetence…whatever it is China is killing the planet and they get a pass and even admiration from posters. I have to wonder if many of these posts are Chinese trolls or at least they are winning the public relations war. If folks really think that a world run by China will be better, they are deluding themselves.

    • frederick

      @ratman there is absolutely nothing “anti American” about criticizing an out of control criminal government What are you talking about These people are the true Americans not the sheeple who are too lazy to do anything and prefer to just lay back and watch their country go straight to hell Your comment disgusts me rat man

    Hi greg
    Have you noticed how bad the “Baltic dry index” it is falling to unbelievable lows,so much for global growth

    • Greg Hunter

      Please post a link. Thank you for pointing this out!!

      • paul

        Greg … looking at a long term chart of the Baltic Dry Index … … it seems to me we are “back to normal” … and the big rise we see in the last decade might only be an “aberration” due to the buying of “real assets” with “phony printed money” the Fed has been creating out of thin air … perhaps there is a world wide reaction against accepting “more and more worthless fiat dollars” for their goods … and thus less goods are being shipped and the index is now back to “normal” and not the “unbelievable lows” people think!

          You made some good points about the Baltic Dry Index. The Baltic Dry Index, just like most indictors, appears to be unreliable at times. That is why it is good to look at a multitude of indicators.

      • Lake M


        Recent data that reflect the conditions in the shipping container,

          Lake M,
          You and I both know the Fed knows how bad it is.

    • frederick

      @Frank yes the Baltic Dry has been dropping as of late but it is still above the lows reached in the spring of 2015 İ believe

    • Cryptic Little Sister

      This drop in the index is a very important warning of a part of the crash. In the near future, pay attention to this index. China’s drag on emerging markets has something to do with the coming collapse. Many individuals are being laid off, and it is not being reported in the media. A German bank (not Deutsche Bank) will collapse soon. This problem will spread around the world. Many of you will know of the true damage of the crash by what happens in the retail stores.

      The DOW will go up a bit more and then it will crash.

      You have precious little time now.

    I have a question,,,,,,
    IF Clinton does become president BEFORE the FBI issues it’s findings of Emailgate, is she still prosecute-able? This is of course assuming that the FBI’s finding is legit and they find that she acted illegally.

    • Linda louin

      I think that if Clinton became POTUS before the FBI FINDINGS were completed that she wouldn’t be prosecuted. Clinton’s handlers would never allow the truth/final findings to be known/surface at this point. Most likely the lies would be justified as necessary, in order to maintain the best interests of the country. Besides, Clinton never would have made it as far as she has now if our legal system were honest.

  51. Sayonara

    Thank you as always for providing a great presentation of truly important news.
    The one news item that stands out this week is the absolute blatant bias in the MSM. I have known this all along. Back in the 1970s one my father’s best friends was high ranking executive at ABC News (And a Democrat) and he made no bones about how they skewed the news to favor the Democrat party. This weeks debate demonstrated not only is the media biased in favor of the Democrat party, they are aggressively trying to embarrass and destroy the Republican candidates openly.
    And they are able to get away with it because the average American has been so dumb downed that they have no idea what has happened and what is happening to them.
    I expect to see more of this aggressive biased behavior by the MSM in the months to come.

      This chart is a lie. No way 50% are “independent”-no way. They are lying to make themselves look more unbiased (when in fact they are totally biased) in my opinion and experience at two networks.

      • smaulgld

        agree, I posted it just to show at least the trend towards dems and away from Reps

    • Sayonara

      I am not surprised by this chart at all. Democrats do and will lie, cheat and steal to achieve their goals at any cost. That 50% of independents is really 40% Democrat and 10% true independents (which includes me). Hard core Democrats list themselves as Independents in order to create a statistical illusion that they are not media biased. When in fact they are the most pernicious, corrupt , evil and tyrannical political group in this country’s history.
      The thing that really disgusts me is that constitutional conservatives are spineless and keep letting the corrupt Democrats beat them up, take their money away from them and then use their money to beat them up more. The only way that the constitutional conservatives are going turn the political paradigm around is to be meaner, nastier and above all, tougher than the Democrats. I do not see this happening anytime soon with exception of Donald Trump.

    I had a vision: Obama will try to nationalize the police department before his term ends.

    Recently Ben Carson said that he would only support a Muslim in a governmental position if he was assured that they would not advocate of Shiria law….(or something like that). I think he was only half right due to the second paragraph below:

    Are Muslims Permitted to Lie?

    Muslim scholars teach that Muslims should generally be truthful to each other, unless the purpose of lying is to “smooth over differences.”

    There are two forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, taqiyya and kitman. These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause Islam – in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.

    Col. Edward .Mandell .House to President Woodrow Wilson in a private meeting.

    “Soon, every American will be required to register their biological property in a national system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging. By such methodology, we can compel people to ubmit to our agenda, which will effect our security as a charge back for our fiat paper currency.
    Every American will be forced to register or suffer being unable to work and earn a living. They will be our chattel, and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions.

    Americans, by unknowingly or unwillingly delivering the bills of lading to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, forever to remain economic slaves through taxation, secured by their pledges. They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans and if by accident one or two should figure it our, we have in our arsenal plausible deniability.

    After all, this is the only logical way to fund government, by floating liens and debt to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges. This will inevitably reap to us huge profits beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor to this fraud which we will call “Social Insurance”.

    Without realizing it, every American will insure us for any loss we may incur and in this manner, every American will unknowingly be our servant, however begrudgingly. The people will become helpless and without any hope for their redemption and, we will employ the high office of the President of our dummy corporation to foment this plot against America.”

    ‘Consent of the Governed’

    • Faith

      @Calgirl: I watched about 1 hour 30 minutes of the video you linked. The premise presented is interesting. It may even be correct. It doesn’t matter. If you refuse to obey the commands and instructions of a law enforcement officer you risk death. Certainly, in the US, there are almost daily videos of citizens being gunned down by law enforcement and, sometimes, for trivial acts. Perhaps once this idea of non-consent reaches critical mass it will be effective. At this point in time I am unwilling to risk my life or my freedom for the non-payment of taxes or for failure to show a driver’s license. Certainly Irwin Schiff took that risk and ended up locked in a cage and died under the supervision of the state, chained to a bed and guareded by law enforcement while his family and fellow citizens were unable to do anything to free him. I consider Mr. Erwin Schiff a martyr. May he rest in peace. He, and his family, are in my thoughts and prayers.

    @ chip. In relation to your “email from Germany” which sounds like complete stereotypical hatred for people from the continent, i am somewhat disappointed to see a email of this nature being promoted on this site. I am not condoning any of the negative behaviours of the REFUGESS and to paraphrase Gerald Celente “when people have nothing to loose, they loose it”. I do not feel it is acceptable for anybody, especially a Dr. to describe fellow human being as “animals”.
    “Many migrants have AIDS, syphilis, open TB and many exotic diseases”. That statement sounds like it was taken right out of the RACIST manual. Lets be clear, it was the European invaders AKA white folk who exposed people from the continent to these European diseases. Like the email, I move away from the point which is that this is a problem created by the 1% who wait for us to react and then offer us a solution to the problem which they created. Simply put it is called the Hegelian Dialectic.

    Greg, I appreciate that it is important to get different global perspective but being a relgious man I would hope you would offer some challenge to the racial content of the email.

    Stay blessed

    Case it point. The refugee crisis in Europe is already overwhelming the system and will soon reach a critical mass of chaos.

    With much of the facts being hidden by the MSM there they might be able to conceal the truth for a little longer but eventually the truth always floats to the surface.

    I traveled to Europe for the first time early this summer but I have little doubt that it will be the one and only time that I visit Europe.

    Hi Greg

    Per Sprott Asset Management:
    The outlook for gold rests squarely on the mathematics that U.S. GDP can no longer service U.S credit-market debt without fresh credit creation on the order of nearly $2.0 trillion on an annual basis. In essence, new debt claims on this order of magnitude are now necessary to support the burden of outstanding debts

    To those who continue to liable me: I have never been wrong about any of my visions. I said that Germany would stumble in September, and that politicians would be involved, and exactly two weeks later, Germany, whose autos, unlike any other country, are almost 50 percent of their DAX, crashed and many people are now saying that on that day in September the global economy took a huge hit in the repo market. Even Martin Armstrong has called it the Big Bang. Back up and I think you will find that my vision was correct about that. Also, you might have made a great deal of money if you had listened to me when I told you that the stock market would go down and gold would go up. The very next day gold went up 15 percent. The stock market went down.

    To weeks ago, I told Greg that the Congress would not wait until November 5th to vote on the NDAA. I said No, watch early next week, they will put together a new budget, and that is what happened. On Monday and Tuesday of last week, the President had a hand in writing the new budget, just as I said he would. The NDAA is now wrapped up in that new budget, and the 1.2 billion will come. Watch for it.

    I am not God. I cannot see everything. But I and others are trying our best to give you what we do see so that you may be forewarned and take action. The only thing I have ever been wrong about is the veto, and that came from my own speculation. It is all too easy to pull down like spoiled children the good things that others make. Perhaps you will all have the courage to see the good and true in what I am saying, rather than attempt to tear down everything I say.

    Try not to allow hatred and jealousy to rot your heart. Vindictive malice can kill a person. There are things in this universe that you simply refuse to understand. But your refusal does not change those powers.

    • Greg Hunter

      Thank you CLS for posting here. Since ISIS is taking credit (this is morbid) for the mid-air explosion of that Russian passenger jet over Egypt, there is going to be grand payback for that one single action alone. I suspect it could come on multiple fronts, including an attack on the USD especially after this $80 billion in new spending with this debt ceiling raise and new budget.

      • frederick

        Greg İSİS taking the blame means exactly nothing since they are a NATO mercenary army and could just be patsies İ really wouldnt put much credance in that admission of guilt İ would personally look at some govt agencies with the experience and connections to pull off something like this We may never know for sure but İ suspect Putin has a short list of possible perpetrators

        • Greg Hunter

          One thing is for sure, payback for this is going to be harsh. Watch for ma major escalation in Russian response against ISIS. I have been anticipating a wider M.E war, and this is what we are getting.

              To assert that there is a worldly Israel that stands in juxtaposition with the Israel of God is to cross that line…………Isn’t it Greg? I mean its your site, your hard work and your rules, but I’m just sayin’.

                However much you may dislike the fact, Brian, the fact remains that the leaders of Israel today are not who you think they are. They will destroy Israel before they will allow Jesus to take his throne there.

                No amount of wishing can make it otherwise.

                But go ahead and stone me. LOL. They did worse to Jesus. I think I can take it.

                • Greg Hunter

                  Here’s where we totally disagree. “They” will not destroy Israel. It will have an everlasting name according to the Bible. You really don’t have sources, do you? You just have your visions–is this correct?

              • Cryptic LIttle Sister

                And when did I “suggest” the Israel is “not” something. And when did I “assert” what you claim. I did nothing of the sort. You put words in my mouth that were never there. Odd how I go from “suggesting” to “asserting.”

                    That would mean CLS is limited to expound the Bible; if he/she knows which one is real. With the incorporation of the Holy Bible: prophesy ceased – there is NO more current or recent revelation from God. There are no visions, dreams, ‘fresh words’ coming from God – otherwise the Bible can be superseded – which then loses authority and position as Standard. This isn’t happening. At least not in truth.

    • JMiller

      “I have never been wrong about any of my visions.”

      Yeah right.

      “The only thing I have ever been wrong about is the veto, and that came from my own speculation.”

      The only thing that you ever been wrong about? Please stop lying. Now you are trying to CYA by saying that your statement that the NDAA was not going to be vetoed was just your speculation. That is not how it sounded when you were proclaiming it.
