Weekly News Wrap-Up 1.27.12

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  The Federal Reserve announced, this week, that it was keeping interest rates at near zero percent until at least 2014.  It sure doesn’t look like the so-called “recovery” is going very well.  The Fed also said it may “stimulate” the economy soon.  Print baby print—you wonder why gold has been rising in price?  Billionaire investor George Soros is scaring the heck out of everybody with his dark comments about the economy’s possible collapse, and riots in Europe and the U.S. he thinks are coming.  He actually said he’s worried about “survival.”  Things must be getting pretty bad if he is saying this type of stuff publicly. The Middle East is a mess with ongoing revolts in Egypt and Syria.  More sanctions are hitting Iranian oil, and Iran is, once again, threatening to close the Strait of Hormuz.  About 20% of the world’s crude oil is shipped through this narrow passageway every year.  Closing it will most certainly bring chaos to a very fragile world economy.  Greg Hunter of USAWatchdog.com brings you these stories and more on the Weekly News Wrap-Up.

    When did anyone ever think the Fed was done printing more fiat money. Print baby print Big Ben has never had any other plan(s) for the economy except to print out of it, its just his nature as a fake fiat man. Remember, Big Print Ben testified in Congress last year that gold was not money. Ben’s real problem is that he can’t make gold as easily as he can put ink on paper or else gold would be worthless too, he would make sure of that!

    I have a book recommendation to understand what is happening in domestic and international affairs and economies – and why. It’s called “Hope For The Wicked”. Here’s a great summary of the book:

    “It’s the best book on the new world order I’ve ever read. It is extremely well researched documented and foot noted. Unlike many books on the new world order this book is straight up facts no silly conspiracies about alien bodies UFO’s or military bases on the moon, just well documented history. The book is 550 pages with 82 photographs and 1,200 footnotes, with a strong historical basis to show that there is a global elite working to end the sovereignty of nations, to place all under the United Nations. Areas explored are: the plan to bring America into the New World Order, the altered roles and make-up of the family, how a global elite is working to change the form of money, the abuse of technology, the Shadow Government, Executive Orders, the role of the Federal Reserve and who owns it, the Bilderbergers, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, identities of the global big wigs and wonks, how the agenda has no ideology and is neither Democrat nor Republican but about control, the erosion of freedoms and rights, the planned collapse of the world economy to bring a new order from chaos, the intentional dumbing-down of American education, and many other issues that are bothering you in your gut, but that you can’t put your finger on.”

    You can link to a preview on Amazon – go straight to Chapter 1 for a real flavor of the material. These are the missing pieces that are not reported by our media – the dots that connect all of the activities together. Here’s the preview:

    Greg:

    what do you think the price of silver will be by the end of the year?

    • Greg

      Maria,
      I am not a market timer and I do not suggest people buy physical gold and silver coins as a way to make some cash. Gold and silver should be a part of every-one’s investment portfolio first and foremost as an insurance policy that never expires. That said, I feel silver, (and Gold) will be much higher in dollar terms by the end of the year. The Fed just announced an extension of zero interest rate policy until at least the end of 2014. I don’t see how the Fed is not debasing the U.S. dollar. Thank you for the question.

      When the “dollar” falls to zero, the price of ANYTHING will be infinite.
      Check out Zimbabwe dollars or Hungarian pengo with your search engine.

    Bernanke’s ZIRP will inevitably be followed by inflation – just when and how much is anybody’s guess.

    Suffice to say his policy is blatant theft from the prudent to reward the PTB. (Which I’ve redefined as the Predators That Be)

    Metaphorically speaking the Ivy league educational institutions (Harvard, Princeton, et. al.) began a breeding program during the sixties to graduate wolves rather than sheep-dogs.

    Freedom has become illegal, no? http://thedailybell.com/3540/Staff-Report-Larken-Rose. The folks at dailybell really got this one right!

    Greg, this man speaks the truth, there a link to his web site with very informative info about the IRS, taxes and of course our law makers who do not read bills they pass or even understand the laws they write, DR Paul has pointed this out many times, but americans can’t hear him, mostly because the way americans were schooled/fooled into this way of thinking, push along by the MSM and the distractions they provide daily, but that is changing, it will have to change, we will have no choice, but you can & should be prepared for that change & try to explain to others, some will see it & act and those that don’t will do what, that’s scary, no?

    Greg, that is what you do, you offer people the truth, it is for them to take action, you have done your job, mine is to try my best to relay the message. Thanks again, you do make a difference!!!
