Obama Chaos Before Leaving Office, Obama Punishes Russia Hacking & Economic Warning

1aBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (WNW 266 12.30.16)

The Obama Administration basically stabbed Israel, its top U.S. Middle East ally, in the back by not stopping a UN resolution that makes the Western Wall occupied Palestinian territory. It also makes building Israeli settlements in the West Bank an international crime.  This is all taking place less than thirty days before Trump’s inauguration.  Is Obama creating as much chaos as possible before he leaves office?  I say YES!!!

On another front, President Obama has expelled 35 Russian officials from the U.S. because of allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The Russians say Obama is “paranoid” and denies the charge.  Now, the Kremlin is vowing retaliation for expelling its diplomats and seizing Russian property in the U.S.  Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin has negotiated a ceasefire in Syria without any involvement from the Obama Administration.

There are big flashing warning signs with the U.S. stock market and bond market. According to Gregory Mannarino of TradersChoice.net, the long end of the yield curve is flattening out, and that has always signaled trouble in the past.  The same pattern happened just before the dot com crash and the 2008 financial meltdown.  Mannarino says look for a horrible start to 2017 in the markets just as bad, or worse, than the beginning of 2016—which was the worst start ever for the Dow and S&P.

    Are we really buying the government’s evidence of Russia hacking our elections? No, we aren’t. My husband, a computer security expert, and I analyzed the evidence and wrote this article in response. https://turningpointnews.org/exposing-political-corruption/dhs-fbi-claim-of-russian-hacking-is-fake-news
    Good luck to us all.

          John is right, Greg Hunter Rocks!!

          Not like Main Stream Media Bauble Heads that are trained like pets to regurgitate exactly what they are told to regurgitate.

          Case in point, check out this FAKE NEWS! PLEASE SEE THE ATTACHED VIDEO…

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZVv2AOCnaA

          Remember that during the first few years of Clinton ‘Rule’ over this is country that the news media was deregulated. Before Clinton, it was not legal for large companies to own news outlets across the entire country. Slick Willie changed all that. Now only 6 (yes, I said SIX) companies own 90+ percent of the news outlets across the USA.

          Think of the advantages to this approach…

          – Cost savings realized due to salary for only one writer,
          – Pending cost savings; only one salary for one person to say what they want all of us to believe.
          – Everybody hears the same ‘news’ everybody ‘thinks’ the same way.

          No wonder they see the internet as such a threat.

        … Thank You sooo much CD ; I had a good laugh and real view of msm ! Trump is the first web news president and they are beginning to swallow hard these days . I think we are entering a new period of “WE THE PEOPLE” and you can see it happening across the globe . We know Barry and his dnc are just causing trouble because they just had the white house rug pulled out from under them ! Trump and U.S. from the web mostly ignored msm and kept an eye on dnc ; whereas it turned out , they (dnc) could not rig the election enough as Barry had ! Election day brought all this out as even Fox bobble heads had no clue until the numbers started coming in … Boy did they do an about face on Trump as “THEE NEWS STATION” , including Megan Kelly !

      Greg,
      Long time visitor, first time comment:

      Regarding the recent US UN abstaining Israel’s Palestinian occupation it is hard to decipher what is really going on. I tried to get on line to research disputed settlement activity and stumbled on this sight: http://israelandpalestine.org/map-of-israel-and-palestine/ It is hard to believe difference between 2005 and Father David’s 20012 map wouldn’t upset the entire Muslim population. You would think that the main street’s supported Israeli version “a few small encroachments shouldn’t interfere with a two state peace process”. The map comparisons look worse than Dumb and Dumber’s million dollar attaché.
      Without jumping off the deep end would you be able to shed some light in one of your weekly wrap-ups?

    Greg,

    To answer your question about whether Obama is trying to create chaos. You are partially right. Obama has been a puppet all along and he has never called a shot during his 8 years in office (with the exception of his golfing vacations). The Shadow Gov’t, Deep State, and Globalist Elite are really the ones making all the decisions and ordering Obama what to do – I’m still shocked that most people don’t see this. And they are indeed the ones trying to create chaos before Trump gets into office.

    • rahrog

      I agree. Obama was never anything but a token hire made by The Ruling Class to assist in the War on America.

      In the waning days of 2016 the US fedgov passed 2 bills into law that are a direct assault on freedom of speech.

      Obama will be gone soon. The Beast lives on.

      Speaking about creating chaos:
      https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2531054/america-special-forces-russian-border-lithuania-obama-putin/

      PRESIDENT Obama has deployed US special forces troops along Lithuania’s border with ‘aggressive’ Russia.

      Tensions between Washington and the Kremlin have reached Cold War levels amid reports Vladimir Putin is deploying nuke-ready missiles in the Russian province of Kaliningrad – which borders Poland, Belarus and Lithuania.

      Doesn’t sound good….

  3. Dan

    As for 2017 and beyond, unless Trump were to end the Fed and the fake money and re-give money making power back to the Treasury, all his wet dreams about re-industrializing and infrastructure-building plans will be pointless and undoable without real and honest money. Debt will no longer work its illusionary magic as it has done in the past since nobody will buy the crap going forward. The ability to raise trillions is for such projects is a pipe dream. In 2017, those already trillions of greenbacks will make their way back to the US causing massive inflation. It will happen very suddenly.

    Nevertheless, have a great and hopeful New Year. We can always hope a “natural” (not instigated by the banking elite) crash and meltdown occurs, as to rebuild from the ashes. God Bless.

    • Charles H

      I must agree, Dan. China and Russia will at sometime tell the USA that they can keep their Dollar. The US is completely going ‘off-the-rails’; and the plug will have to be pulled.
      Happy New Year to you.

    • Frederick

    On a side-note, I just watched a great (Dec. 29) interview on RT with Larry King (who I usually actually don’t like all that much) with guest John McAfee regarding hacking and surveillance in general. As the first developer of Ant-virus software and 50 years in the business, I really enjoyed the way he articulated and addressed all these hot issues. Fantastic, spot-on, straight no-nonsense commentary. Must listen. Here is the link:

  6. Faith

    Indeed, this week has been incredible to observe! Amazing to watch the outgoing president throw a temper tantrum on his way out! It looks like Russia is not falling for this nonsense, thank God!

    I feel like I am on pins and needles, waiting to see what the man-child is going to do next! The way Israel was treated by both Obama, and Kerry, and the UN, was atrocious. It put Israel in an untenable position, an unsolvable dilemma. The one democracy in the Middle East and this is how they are treated? With all the concern about Obama’s legacy, well, with these final moves he is showing his real allegiance and true motives!

    I served during the Cold War and was able to travel to some of the former Iron Curtain countries after the fall of the Berlin Wall (the former East Germany, Poland, Romania, Belarus, Bulgaria, Hungary). The old USSR is gone. It is time to end the scary stories about MAD (mutually assured destruction) and the mean old Russians! It is ridiculous! The good news is the Russians seems to be taking Obama’s foolishness with a grain of salt and the Russian Ambassador in the UK posted a tweet that was on the Drudge report most of the afternoon and evening. Very humorous and good natured which was good to see! The fact that Russia was able to broker a peace deal in Syria, without any US involvement, speaks volumes with regard to how far the US has fallen in the eyes of the world. Again, this will be Obama’s lasting historical legacy. Was this really his plan? If so, that leaves me speechless.

    Thank you for showing the chart that you showed from Gregory Mannarino! This market very much reminds me of the 2000 dot com bubble and 2008. I am out of the market. I have minimal debt. I do own PMs and have extra food stored. I agree about the shock for many older people that are close to retirement and who think the recent stock gains will last and support them in their old age. This is a great market if you are in your 20s or 30s and even your 40s. If you are in your 50s, 60s, or 70s and still fully invested in the US stock market: ouch! Those folks are made of sturdier stuff than myself!

    Great weekly news wrap up, once again, Mr. Hunter! Happy New Year! 🎉🍾☃

      To you mean the man who presently occupies the position of POTUS? (With all the criminal government related activity, I’m not sure that Obama was even eligible to hold this visibly highest office). And to think that this trouble maker was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

  8. Paul ...

    A consequence of the recent Security Council resolution against those Israeli neocons in charge of building, expanding and populating settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory (because there was no one to stop them) … is that now the International Criminal Court can start formal investigations into the actions of these neocon Israeli political and military leaders … and eventually prosecute them for “war crimes” … so this is now becoming serious!!

  9. Linda L.

    Greg
    I read that ‘Republican’ Speaker Paul Ryan agrees with Obama’s latest sanctions against Russia, however he says that Obama just waited too long to instigate them! As Obama attempts to destroy our Republic and bring us closer to war if he can, so called Democrats AND Republicans like weasel Ryan demonstrate to me that the two party system is just about gone, filled to the brim with socialists/communists, opportunists and downright criminals. If it weren’t for Trump, who is anxious to work with Russia and Israel, I think that America would be in war by now. Obama and his cronies like George Soros and the Clintons (who I think should all be in jail) happily didn’t anticipate this. Thank you for your information.

    • JC Davis

      Linda L and site. I am a bit confused about the sanctions. I thought we already put all the sanctions on Russia, and they laughed them into non existence by selling off treasuries. Also they don’t need America. They operate outside the dollar. What am I missing.?

  10. Linda L.

  11. Russ

    Thanks Greg, good wrap-up of current events. Is Obama creating as much chaos as possible before he leaves office? Of course; this is what scortched Earth looks like wrt transitioning the Oval Office from a lame duck President to someone he hates.

    Happy New Year, it will be interesting times.

    • Russ

      and in an unusual response, Putin turns the other cheek … http://www.newsmax.com/World/GlobalTalk/russia-american-diplomats-expelled-retaliation/2016/12/30/id/766142/
      quote:
      In a statement on the Kremlin’s web site Friday, Putin referred to the sanctions as a “provocation aimed to further undermine Russian-American relations.” But he also said Moscow would not be expelling American diplomats, as the Obama administration had ordered against Moscow.

      “The Russian diplomats returning home will spend the New Year Holidays with their relatives and dear ones,” Putin said. “At home. We will not create problems for U.S. diplomats. We will not expel anybody.”
      unquote

      Putin takes the prize for the latest ceasefire in Syria and now he takes the high road wrt O’s latest attempt to flip the game board. O’ is definitely leaving the Presidency on a low note and setting the bar very low for Trump to look Presidential.

      • Freebreezer

  13. Elusive Joseph

    Erdogan is like the pot calling the kettle black. Turkey also supported extremists, “al-Nusra”, to wage war against the Syrian government. The fake label, “moderates”, is nothing more than a propaganda tactic to make people look the other way or support them in their quest of a violent overthrow of Assad, while Syrian Christians, who were always protected by Assad, get slaughtered in the process. What’s this “Free Syrian Army” lie that was spewed by the fake media? If Syria wasn’t free, why do the Christians support Assad and oppose the rebels since day one of the Syrian war? For Erdogan to condemn the U.S. for supporting ISIS, is like a corrupt police chief in another city, who supports The Bloods, to condemn corrupt police chief in another city for supporting The Crips.

    I believe Our Lord Jesus Christ’s words regarding the second Temple, “Not one stone will be left upon another,” and to believe or say otherwise is to say He was wrong. Christ can never be wrong. This is why I believe the so-called “Wailing Wall” is the remains of the Roman fortress, Fort Antonia.

    Even Jewish historian, Josephus, who also wrote in his “Jewish Wars”, attested the Romans left nothing above or below ground of the Second Temple so that one coming to Jerusalem thereafter would never believe a Temple ever existed. According to Josephus, Titus, the Roman General who flattened Jerusalem to the ground in 70 AD, allowed Fort Antonia to remain to house the Tenth Legion left to monitor Roman affairs in Jerusalem.

  14. Diane D.

    If Trump is who he said he is, he will repeal all of Obama’s unconstitutional actions. Fat chance…

    Trump is already to kiss the ring of globalist/Zionist Netanyahu and keep spilling innocent blood in the Middle East. We have been waging unconstitutional wars in the ME for 15 years. We have over 7,000 Americans dead. Would someone explain specifically what the US military has accomplished? That is NOT a rhetorical question…

    • Frank D

      Diane, I believe you are wrong about Trump. He is not a war monger (unlike the neocon Hitlery who is). He is much more of an isolationist. Hitlery would have had us in a war with Russia as soon as she took office. As for the military’s accomplishments, they were on the verge of victory before Obama gave it all back by bringing the troops home too soon (and against his general’s advice). I am with Trump, however, and don’t believe we should spill ANY MORE American blood in the various hell holes of the world. Its not our place to do so, especially if we get nothing in return. But, while we did lose 4,000+ lives in Iraq/Afghanistan, Obama’s give away made those lost lives for nothing. What an utter shame (on him) and a slap in the face for the families of those lost. Obama made it all for nothing. Can’t wait until his sorry azz is out of office. It can’t happen soon enough. Don’t buy the MSM take of Trump….he will not have us in a war (except against those trying to kill us….we will NOT be “nation building”). I believe he and Putin will get along fabulously.

    • Charles H

      An exercise of Stupidity. And even as America should not be judged by the leadership by a total failure; neither should Israel be abandoned because of it’s leadership either.

      • Paul ...

        Right on Charles … Israel could have been a great force for good in the Middle East … with their technology and brains the Middle East could have been a paradise by now … but greedy neocons took over the Israeli government the same way they did right here in America … but things are changing for the better over here with Trump … now all we need to do is change the leadership at the top in Israel too!!

  15. M. Sansone

    Greg:
    I would like to address the first point you made on 12/30/16. I believe Mr. Obama is engaging in opportunistic acts in order to posture, or position himself, within the False Paradigm, that is, the hegemonic construct spoken of by some of your guests. Simply put, for eight years he has been trying to secure his role in the cultural script, at the expense of good governance…and lives.

    On the Israeli-palestinian conflict you are simply wrong!

    • JC Davis

      MP how would you feel if Canada told you not to build next to a American Indian reservation ?

  17. Fear Not

    Mark your calendar, January 15th of 2017, 70 nations are going to meet in Paris to discuss the “Two-State Solution.” Do you really think Obama will waste a good crisis for the Israeli’s? I personally think the outcome is an official UN recognition of the State of Palestine according to the ’67 borders. Even the second worst president in modern times, Jimmy Carter, was recently calling on the worst president of modern times, Barrack Hussein Obama, to go ahead and recognize Palestine. Those ’67 borders, as outlined in the December UN Resolution, will make it illegal for Israelis to build, even in the old Jewish quarter, of Jerusalem. Those borders are not defend-able, and Israel will not give up their capital.

      Those who bless Israel will be blessed. Those who curse Israel will be cursed. It doesn’t matter who the political leaders are. There are no conditions to be met. I feel like the UN has pushed God up against the “Wailing Wall”. Scaaarrrry.

      • Paul ...

        Like a true neocon who won’t stop until he controls everything … Netanyahu did not bless Israel … by pushing and pushing for more and more and more land he has the world now in a rage saying “enough is enough” … look at what he has wrought … Russia is now in a position to “liberate” the Golan Heights and return it to its rightful owner (Syria) … and Russia can militarily enforce the complete return of Israel back to its pre-1967 borders … so what was it all for Netanyahu?? … what did Israel gain from it all?? … only worldwide hatred!!!
        Since the Palestinians are genetically “Jews” … the most reasonable solution would be to have “One State” where “all the Jews” live together in peace!!

          Huh! Nobody has ever said that to me before.

      • Randy Hitt

        Susan, the bible does not say “those who bless Israel will be blessed”.
        Go back and read it again. What it says is “those who bless Abraham will be blessed”.

        • Greg Hunter

          Sorry Randy it does indeed say that many times starting in Genesis: “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
          – Genesis 12:1-3

          • Randy Hitt

            You proved my point Greg. It does NOT say Israel in the scripture you quoted as in fact Israel is just another name for Jacob who was not born yet, nor was Israel’s father Isaac born or Abraham’s first son Ishmael.

            In fact God is talking to the pre-transformed, pre-covenant Abram the Chaldean, in his home town Ur in Mesopotamia before God promised the holy land to Abraham.

            Clearly Gen 12: 1-3 God the father is talking to Abram and the blessing he bestowed on all families of men is his son Jesus not the people who rejected him, accused him before the Romans, and demanded his crucifixion.

  18. andyb

    Greg: there’s no question that Obama has Muslim sympathies what with the prevalence of the Muslim Brotherhood in the West Wing. And it’s fairly obvious as well that Huma was to be the successor to Valerie Jarrett as “consigliere”. So is the latest UN kerfuffle Obama’s middle finger to the Zionists who seek Israeli hegemony over the Middle East? This hegemony is actually one of the agendas for both the CIA and Mossad who have, together with the terrorist states of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, enabled, armed, and supported ISIS and all other AlQ offshoots. Actually, he should be applauded, or should he? What Obama has done with the UN Resolution, in essence, will preclude and muddy the waters for any 2 state solution, which would give the Palestinians control over Gaza. That’s a no-no considering the natural gas Leviathan deposit sitting just off the coast. There is no question that both the CIA and Mossad are at least partially controlled by neocon war mongers which serve the global chaos agenda of the Zionist banking cabal and there is ample evidence that both intelligence agencies were complicit in 911. So what to make of Trump’s romance with Israel and the Zionist members of his cabinet? Have we been snookered again?

    • Freebreezer

      AndyB – I was all so considering (a few months ago) the impact of the huge gas deposit off west bank coast … How would Israel play the deal given their closet partners the Saudis and Oil Emirats? Now, do the Zionist really care per Saudi / Qatar /UAE getting a pipe line through Syria? It is Israel’s advantage not too … less competition. Plus the Syria conflict appears to be winding down … And Is the whole UN thing smoke and mirrors set in to play by the Zionist, this to play victim but at the same time muddy the waters per a 2 state resolution? Great question. Oh, what a messed up region of the world!

    • Paul ...

      andyb … Trump has common sense and intellect … he knows right from wrong … if he works with moral Israeli politicians and moral Jewish members of his cabinet there is no problem with him or us being “snookered” … activist Jewish leaders who have morals and common decency can be one of the greatest forces for good in our world … we must unleash all the forces for good … in all peoples of our world … in the Middle East we can begin by proclaiming the murder of women and children “by anyone” as a war crime … no women … no children … and soon we will see the beginnings of peace flower once again in the region!!

    Russia Calls U.S. Move To More Easily Arm Syrian Rebels A ‘Hostile Act’

    posted by askousen – Thursday, December 29 2016
    …The U.S. decided to loosen rules on arming Syrian rebels, which resulted in allowing for distributions of shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles, a move Moscow claimed would directly endanger Russian forces in Syria. The easing of the restrictions came out of a measure from the recently passed defense-spending bill which President Obama signed last week. — The Daily Caller

    Greg,
    Great show as always!
    Just to alert – what is viral on YouTube, if you haven’t noticed: sheriff Arpaio and crew have PROVEN that the Obama birth certificate is a FORGERY! There was a challenge court case on December 14, 2016 ( Yes, two weeks ago!) where Obama’s lawyer admitted the truth of this. Anyone interested – just search Arpaio on YouTube. The communist Obama is coming apart. His puppet master Soros is being exposed.

    Greg, thanks for all your efforts to bring truth to the forefront !

    …2. The United States wanted the Islamic State to grow, as proved by leaked intelligence documents The rapid growth of the Islamic State was not an accident, and many observers of the conflict questioned the US commitment to fighting terrorism as they ignored the group’s rise. Since the start of the armed conflict in 2011, United States officials including Hillary Clinton have publicly stated that their solution to stop the war is to replace Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and other government leaders. The public policy of the United States has been to support what the US calls moderate opposition groups under the name Free Syrian Army (FSA) with the goal of having them weaken the government forces. That strategy changed in mid-2012 as news reports confirmed these rebels were committing war crimes by killing civilians and executing soldiers. One of the largest factions Al Nusra was specifically identified as a terrorist group in December 2012. — The Free Thought Project

    Ottomans objected division of POLAND. POLAND CANNOT BE DIVIDED
    Fought massive wars but lost. POLAND was divided by Russians and Austrian Empires.
    In final settlements, Ottomans were not called.
    FALL OF OTTOMAN / Turkish EMPIRE

  27. Mike R

    Focus on what was stolen and released irrespective of who did it.

    What was stolen was in fact hard evidence, bordering on irrefutable proof, that a major political party in this country intentionally corrupted their own primary process to steal said primary election for one candidate and disenfranchise another.

    That is the “damaging information” that was released.

    The irony of accusing Russia of “tampering” with our election when the information released, and in fact the only information that had damaging value which was released, was hard evidence of actual tampering with our elections by the Democrat Party itself is not lost on me nor on anyone else with half a functional brain.

    That the American people decided to “reward” such election tampering by our own political party, not Russia, with an unexpected loss at the polls is not “evil”, it is not “corrupt”, it is just desserts.

    Had the Democrat Party not tampered with the primaries including, I remind you, multiple apparent proved instances of party insiders being fed debate questions ahead of time, there would have been nothing of value to disclose and no impact from same.

    Next, we have a Wikileaks insider, the man who claims to have been the actual courier, who has said on the record that a DNC insider, quite possibly Seth Rich, gave him the contents of said emails (other than John Podesta’s.)

    Leaving aside the outrageous idiocy and lack of care when it comes to security that the DNC exhibited, particularly high-level campaign insiders such as Podesta, in using public email providers (such as Google) the fact remains that there is not only little credible evidence that the DNC’s email was “hacked” there is zero evidence provided in the FBI report that Russia had anything to do with it.

    So by these absurdly infantile actions, Obama is merely re-iterating for us all, and highlighting that what was supposedly ‘stolen’ was HARD EVIDENCE that shows how corrupt the Democratic party, his own party, truly is. He’s making it like the child who got into mom’s precious Godiva chocolate candies, and with brown chocolate smeared all over his face and hands, proudly proclaims ‘mom, I didn’t eat any chocolate candy.’ And he is doing it, once again emphasizing his truly infantile mentality, to try to cause disruption and upend the incoming President. If that doesn’t show you what a gutless, treasonous, purely selfish, cowardly, and total fool the man is, then you are woefully blind to the past 8 years of him screwing all legal American citizens, while destroying the fabric of our country. In fact, one could easily argue, that his ONLY intention in becoming President was to try to personally destroy everything that is great, good, and amazing about this country, while leaving nothing but badness, evil, and hostility by Americans against every other American. Further, his underlying purpose was to turn everyone against each other. On that measure, I’m afraid he has come very close to achieving that. Lets be honest: This very last act, along with the 18,000 new regulations he is introducing at the 11th hour, proves beyond a shadow of a doubt, the man is deeply hateful and shameless to the bone, hates America and in particular all WHITE Americans. How we ever elected such an incorrigible fraudster con man, is scary beyond belief. This New Years eve, should be the celebration of a lifetime, that we somehow survived this man’s evil.

  35. gregd

    Greg,
    According to sheriff Arpaio and his investigators, Obama’ birth certificate is fake. They put a lot on the line and with the Obama’ continued efforts to keep his school transcripts secret, I believe they may be correct. Please remember that it was Obama’ book that he wrote that stated he was born inKenya, not someone else’s book. If so that would make everything Obama has done completely reversible.
    Other than that I believe the only other choice we have is for the U.S. and Israel to remove themselves from the U.N.
    Trump himself said he believes the U.N. causes more problems but never solves any problems. Or something to that effect.
    Perhaps they can work out an agreement with Russia and maybe even China that would be beneficial to all.
    P.S. If you are right about Obama trying to cause chaos, be prepared for O.J. to be pardoned along with Clinton.

    Thank you for the nice comment. I find no joy in posting the information I share. It saddens me greatly to watch our great nation being sucked dry by these parasitic bankers that have infiltrated our economic system. More bond selling.
    http://www.marketwatch.com/story/treasury-yields-decline-in-final-session-of-2016-2016-12-30

    The current manipulation formula:
    Foreign bond selling + Federal Reserve Buyback + Quantitative Easing = Rising Dollar. Rinse and repeat.

    As I have stated before, the other currencies of the world are being crushed by this formula, and are now making the transition to the Yuan as their trade peg of choice. Eleven countries made the transition just this week with even more lining up after the new year. We are on a collision course with the IMF to either loose our reserve currency status or risk collapsing the global economy. Whatever stopgap measures they have used to this point are temporary.

      Does anyone want to guess what China’s next move may be?

      • Paul ...

        China’s next move will likely be to try and deny the Fed access to SDR’s from the IMF … without SDR’s to cover their dollar debts the Fed’s Reserve Notes (the dollar) will fall in value relative to other currencies (that can access SDR’s) … and the currency re-set that follows will put China and its currency (backed by gold) in a stronger position to begin to take on “reserve status”!!!

      • Freebreezer

        The answer to that is worth mega billions! All I know is that after being in China for work, they are incredible nationalistic (i.e. the populist believe they should be the superpower … they do not say this, be it is easily observed in their mannerism!). Just look back at the China Olympics to see it put in our face (!) … and the general USA populace have no clue/idea what is lurking over there! Their brightist/astute kids were educated with PhD’s here in the USA starting in the 80’s and 90’s, this to found/seed the Universities of China. They understand the west but how well do we understand the east? If it was a poker game, I believe China will ‘check’ the pot for now and let the West continue to build it!

  41. Diana Dee Jarvis

    Regarding the expulsion of Russian diplomats, that happens occasionally because governments really do have intelligence officers pose as diplomats. After Obama and Biden talked so much about retaliation, they had to do *something* — and expelling known GRU agents probably isn’t that big a deal to Russia. If you look at Putin’s comments, Putin’s even getting great PR from it. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/vladimir-putin-russia-expel-us-american-diplomats-35-intelligence-operatives-barack-obama-us-a7501916.html

    As for Russia hacking US election, lamestream media is willfully misusing the word hacking. Russia did hack both Republicans and Democrats. The media is using “hack” to refer to the email leaks. MSM and Democrats claim the leaks came from the hacks (or SIGINT collection). Wikileaks claims the leaks did not come from Russian sources. IMO whether the leaks were Russian or not, they provided a much needed counterbalance to the MSM propaganda. As a child of the Cold War, I’m amazed at myself for typing this.

  42. James Hastings

    The grit, that waxes my pearl is simple. We as a Nation, are dramatically different on philosophy. The Democrats are fanatical Marxist. Mindless bots. They can’t see the real world. I don’t see a reconciliation as a Nation. So….I see blood and strife, death and destruction. We will not fare well in this mess. I’ll stop there. You can’t handle the rest. I regret I sound so depressing. But, I see, you don’t. I hope President Trump softens the reset. 🙂

He founded the software company McAfee Associates in 1987 and ran it until 1994, when he resigned from the company. McAfee Associates achieved early success as the creators of McAfee, the first commercial antivirus software, and they now produce an entire line of enterprise security software. The company was renamed to Intel Security in 2011 after being purchased by Intel, though the software still retains the McAfee brand name. McAfee’s wealth peaked in 2007 at $100 million, before his investments suffered in the global financial crisis that began that year.

  48. Billy

    Putin is the prophesied prince of Russia. He’s too smart for Obama. I think God has a big plan playing out, and that includes the rise of Russia and China to the East. The rise of the far right in Europe and the decline of Ancient Israel – which is America and Britain today and Judah which is Israel today. God chose Trump not to make great America again but to chastise it for its sin. Modern Israel which is America, Britain and commonwealth countries are as God calls them hypocrites look at gay marriage, media bias, politics, economics. I think he is trying to get our attention and we are under a curse. America Britain and israel will be great again but not under Trump, it will come under Gods plan.

  49. Billy

    The special bond between America and Israel is over, i would look for Israel to look to Germany and the EU in the short future. Remember the bloody battles between the catholics and islam, this is where WW3 starts from. Both the catholic church and islam have always had eyes on Jerusalem. Israel is going to look to Germany for help from the arabs and German led EU is going to betray them. This is where it all starts from Jerusalem which will engulf the entire planet. Not the beginning of the end, but the end of the beginning.

        I wish you were right Greg, but i don’t agree at all. When Israel goes down, the US and Britain follow after. It’s bizarre twist of events, but the Nation who wanted to wipe the jews off the planet in WW2 is who Israel will look to in the not to distant future.

        Trump will not turn this around. The people as a whole have to turn, but there is way too much division.

        Hosea 5.5
        Israel’s arrogance testifies against them; the Israelites, even Ephraim, stumble in their sin; Judah also stumbles with them.

        Hosea 5:13New International Version (NIV)

        13 “When Ephraim saw his sickness,
        and Judah his sores,
        then Ephraim turned to Assyria,
        and sent to the great king for help.
        But he is not able to cure you,
        not able to heal your sores.

            It will only rise through Christs return. Christ said when you see Jerusalem surrounded by enemies know the end is near. There will not be peace in Israel just because Trump is president. It is about to intensify, America, Britain and Israel are lacking in Faith as nations. You just watch over the next year. Great days lie ahead but at the moment we live in sterner times.

          • Charles H

            It may be a remnant, or portion who are redeemed out of Tribulation. Not everyone survives war – political or spiritual. They WILL be redeemed as a nation.

            • Billy

              Agree, though God has a 7000 year plan after the millenium 1000 year of peace, there will be the first resurrection where everyone will come to life again and get to know God. Jerusalem is Gods chosen city where Jesus will rule from. It is a very special place.

        • Charles H

          Jim Gilly,

          God Almighty works with such economy: that not even the devils or Satan can perceive His workings. Mere mortal man, then, may see even less. This is what describes His “mysterious ways” – of producing an outcome which we don’t expect. Also, when man works against the councils of God – He is not obligated to further our expectations; but may use other avenues.
          Be sure that the prophesies Scripture contains WILL be fulfilled: which are not all favorable in general. Strip away all but Scriptural criteria: and the world is bleak and descending; yet there is an economy, which Faith comprehends that continues in Light, and Hope. If you are not a part of this later, faithful economy: little will make sense to you; and you will continue to impress your criteria over that which is alone seen by the eyes. The Salvation the Son of God purchased, dying in man’s place – COULD save the entire world: except it is denied and refused. Don’t blame Greg Hunter for your lack of faith or vision. For those born-again souls the Holy Spirit saves in response to receiving Jesus Christ as Savior by Grace (God’s mercy alone) through Faith, repenting of their sin: all Eternity and blessings are gained. God is not changing the world to suit our whims: He is redeeming those who will come His way, under His conditions of faith – to ready us for His own abode. Do we, and will we all suffer here – with sin and evil in the world? Certainly. But God will NOT forsake us, who are His own: though suffering and tragedy may afflict. THE Great Issue in life is in the old Gospel message, first expressed in the Old Testament: “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.” It is a heart condition, and a matter of the Will to respond to God according to His Truth. He is not to blame for us choosing something else, over Him. This time is short – our lives. The question is: which side of the Almighty do you want to be on? Once in Eternity: you lose the opportunity to choose.

    • Paul ...

      What evidence? … the evidence that the Almighty cast out 1/3 of the population of Heaven and placed them in “an insane asylum” called Hell … it’s only the 1/3rd that were thrown out of Heaven that look upon the Almighty as being insane!!

      DLC this has MOSSAD/CIA written all over it sadly

    If you consider what some have done to date to serve the agenda of the NWO….why would you not think that they will stop at nothing in the effort to accomplish their goals.

    These are perilous times. Those of us that are aware know that this is far from over.

    It brakes my heart each day knowing what mess we leave for our children and grandchildren.

    All that I can do is reach out and ask God for guidance and mercy.

    In my view the USA is on the verge of planned chaos.
    They want to see us at odds against each other.

    Trust in yourself. Trust in God….question everything else carefully.

    • Paul ...

      Yes … these are perilous times and they are far from over … as we celebrate this New Year lets ask God for his protection from the current waves of cosmic energy hitting our Earth … that have already damaged Earth’s protective magnetic shield and is now creating unprecedented volcanic activity (which can foster in a new ice age) to the consternation of the Al Gore gang who thought they could use Earth’s weather changes as another excuse to tax us … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmHB0O9pJcI

    Greg,
    The way I see Obama and what he is doing as Lame Duck has much to do as what a bad renter does to the house he rents once his lease is up. For the first time in American history we did not have a real American to represent us in the White House. We had a Globalist who went on a apology tour and told us we were nothing special and certainly nothing exceptional. Yes this “renter” is trying to tear up the place before
    he vacates. Very nice weekend wrap.
    Happy New Year Greg

    We have 20 days left. Can the last 20 days of an American President have ever been so worrying?
    Obama is running out of cards he can play, especially against Russia. It will be difficult for him to create a false flag event in Syria now, especially as the USA were not part of the ceasefire and Putin will wisely consolidate Aleppo before moving to wider territory. Russia’ not responding to Obama’ sanctions, mean that even if he raises more sanctions and threats against Russia, he will be increasingly seen as aggressive and deliberately trying to raise tensions. This limits his options to false flags in Ukraine/ Crimea and the old Baltic states, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia who would play ball if the money is right. Putin has no wish to invade these countries, but he is very patriotic and these countries have large Russian populations. If these populations were attacked he would respond. 20 days and counting.

    Obama threw Israel under the bus for one reason: To increase his stock as a future Secretary General of the UN. This is his narcissist, egotistical, personality at it’s finest. “I don’t care how many dishes I break in the China Shop as long as I get what I want.”
    He’s a young guy and he’s looking to become president of the world in the near future. What’s closer than Secretary General? This act gets all the middle east tinpot dictators on his side. God help the world!

    So what happens tonight?

    Desperate people do desperate things….

    The principle of distraction….look this way…because I do not want you to see what I am doing over there.

    This is a likely a time where being a realist will be more rewarding than being a positive thinking goal reaching person.

    Any clear thinking person can see that there are major powers within the USA that want to tear the USA apart.

    Be careful…be very careful in the next 18 hours.
    Safest place to be the next 18 hours is away from large crowds.

    IMHO

    Lets make 2017 a YEAR of POSITIVE CHANGE.

    Lets take back our freedom and lets all choose to control our lives and our destiny.

    Thank You Greg Hunter for your HONEST JOURNALISM and your genuine Christian desire to help and awaken others.

    I put nothing past the evil ones.

    Hi Greg

    Thank You for your Sharp Business/Economy/political acumen in keeping us informed. I enjoy you weekly commentaries.

    I wanted to mention to you that there is as much FRAUD in our healthcare system as our financial system. When I was a kid in grade school in the 60’s I remember reading our Weekly Reader and remember an article that one day Plants would cure most diseases. This can’t happen because Big Pharma can’t patent a plant.

    I had prostate cancer and did the research to find the Rick Simpson Oil as the cure for most cancers. I am now cured. What stuns me that the “Profit” is more important then peoples lives. What has happened to our country. What happened to truth & honor….

    Happy New Year Greg!

    Duterte Says US Ambassadors Are CIA “Spies” As Alleged US Plot To Overthrow Him Emerges

    Philippine President Duterte slammed U.S. ambassadors as CIA “spies”, in response to a media report of an alleged American plot to overthrow his government, a job he said some envoys were appointed solely to do.

  63. Larry Galearis

    Obama seems to have got his marching orders and 1) they seem to be directed as leaving Trump with as much trouble as he can – or 2) perhaps, even to cripple Washington and Russian relations. The rhetoric is certainly being escalated. I wonder also about the level of crisis the deep state is finding itself and it begs the question about whether another false flag event could happen in the next 20 days. Perhaps a nuke attack? What could then happen would be to extend the Obama presidency in order to deal with this new emergency. People forget that Roosevelt went on to extend his presidency during WW2. I don’t wish to sound alarmist, but I suspect the possibility that the deep state may try something extreme to deny Trump his presidency.
    FWIW,
    G.

    Greg – have you ever considered getting Wolf Richter from Wolfstreet.com on for an interview ? Writes a number of economic articles. Interesting perspectives too. Link below to one of them….

    Hello Greg. I have always enjoyed your WNWs, listening to your interviews and reading your guest’s comments. And I respect your Christian beliefs concerning Israel. However, while I agree with 99% of what you say and I give your site as much word-of-mouth support that I can, on this subject we must respectfully agree to disagree. For me, I look at the amount to land within Palestine that Israel occupied in 1948 and compare this with how much they occupy today (http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/mapstellstory.html). If this information is correct someone is clearly losing out in this equation, and it doesn’t seem to be the Israeli’s.
    It is always difficult to analyze a situation from afar when one has to rely on other people for ‘facts’ but I found this woman’s account of the Israeli Palestine conflict very moving (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecQp1JLQMDc).
    What seems obvious to me, and what I hope for, is that the Israeli’s and Palestinians must somehow shed their anger, hate, pride and stubbornness and find a real solution/compromise to sharing a country fairly – no matter what ‘rights’ either side claims to have over the land.
    Greg, I would like to ask you two questions (and I only ask this so that I understand the situation better) : As a Christian do you agree with the Two State Solution in Palestine? and
    If you don’t want a Two State Solution, how much land would you like to see the Palestinian’s occupying?

    Have a great year Greg.
    Clive

      Clive,
      I have no idea if this map is even correct. Please remember, the entire Arab world attacked Israel in 1967 and in 1973. They lost. This is how most of the land was taken. It is now part of the security of Israel. To this day, the Palestinian’s (Hamas and the PA) official position is to wipe out Israel and kill the Jews. This is their stated goal in their charter and they will NOT accept Israel’s right to exist. That’s the other side of the story.
      Greg

      • Aussie Clive

        Greg. Thank you for your reply. I have yet to hear a clear answer from the Israelis (or from yourself) to the questions I posted earlier. The Palestinians stated goal to Not accept Israel’s right to exist against, I suspect, the unstated goal of Israel (with their Right of Return policy to the Promised Land) to control the entire country is the crux of the problem.
        Anna Baltzer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecQp1JLQMDc) describes the ever expanding settlement process occurring in Palestine which has expanded far beyond the land secured since 1973. Their support in the form of weaponry (including nuclear) and money from the US and others allows them to do this. There is never going to be peace while this is occurring and I doubt that this will end well for the Palestinians since the more powerful party usually wins the dispute.
        I know this is a sensitive subject but I only bring it up for discussion since it is a current issue in this weeks WNW.
        Clive

    Very many thanks for all of the sound programmes your have aired in 2016 and we look forward to many more in 2017, O’Bama has not sent an economic warning to Russia, it is more correctly described as a Comic warning. It is schoolboy stuff, once again Vlad has out manoeuvered him.

    Happy New Years Greg! I listen to all of your broadcasts. I bet next year you “make it” to Prop or Not. I wrote this article thinking of you.

    Greg, I do not know what to make of this. I am referring to your removal of my reply comments to “freebreezer” who alluded to the fact in this article about the Zionists stealing more Palestinian land to build settlements was some how a lot of fuss over where a few houses were built. You did not take this very condescending remark to task, yet you delete my factual and respectfully worded comments on the subject. You then ignore my request for a simple explanation of your actions. Is this your idea of a free and fair media? I have followed your website for a couple of years and I am hoping that this is all a mistake somehow because I really like and respect you. Sincerely, Mike
