Iran War Drums, Panama Papers Update, Economy Weak and Sick

1aBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (WNW 234 4.8.16)

Lots of news about Iran this week being overlooked because of the so-called Panama Papers. Iran has issued a warning to the U.S. not to interfere with its ballistic missile program.  Iranian officials say any attempt to interfere with its weapons program would be crossing a “red line.”  Iran also wants to improve the destructive power of its warheads which would also help in detonating a nuclear armed missile.  Iran has recently test fired ballistic weapons and continues to develop them.  An Iranian General was quoted this week on Iranian state run press, as saying “The reason we designed our missiles with a range of 2000 km is to be able to hit our enemy the Zionist regime from a safe distance.” The Obama Administration is now talking about putting sanctions on Iran because it continues to develop ballistic missiles.  Might I remind you, the Iran deal to curtail its nuclear program was not signed by Iran.  By the way, the U.S. Navy just intercepted a load of weapons going to the Iranian backed rebels in Yemen.

The so-called “Panama Papers” were released this week, and it showed how a Panamanian law firm helped the global elite dodge taxes and launder money. Big wigs from around the globe have been implicated including, John Podesta who is running Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.  The law firm had offices in Miami and other U.S. locations, but when the story broke, they disappeared literally overnight.  Of course, you can set up shell companies in places like Nevada and Wyoming with little to no regulation.  Other shoes on this tax avoidance story are going to drop.  This is just more of the global financial fraud being exposed.

Anybody that thinks the overall economy is good should take a long look at this headline from Zerohedge.com. It reads, “It’s Probably Nothing”: Truck Orders Plunge 37% as Unsold Inventories Soar the Most Since 2007.”  If you are not buying new trucks to ship, then the economy is not growing–just the opposite.  In another comparison, Lehman Brothers is a bank that started to get into trouble in 2007.  The Lehman collapse in September of 2008 started the last global financial meltdown.  The stock chart of Deutsche Bank, which is orders of magnitude bigger than Lehman, looks like it’s following the exact same path as Lehman before it imploded.

    Yes, it does indeed appear that a war against Iran/Persia needs to be fought in the worst way. Too bad, though, that so many lack the heart and spine to do what’s necessary. They may join Obama and the leftist Democrat Party in being on the wrong side of history along with Neville Chamberlain, who was too timid to fight and instead tried to appease Hitler.

    In 1939, the policy of appeasement failed when Hitler invaded Czechoslovakia. The leftist policy of appeasement will fail again against Iran/Persia.

      For those of the faith…
      From a Biblical perspective…..societies are degenerating as was expected. At the right time, “At the time of the end”..the king of the south shall rise up and push against the king of the north and the king of the north shall come as a whirlwind, overflow and pass through…..Iran looks to be the king of the south, Europe, king of the north and the USA will be a “was, past tense, were”. (Dan 11:40) But societies will continue….under new management. LOL “But go your way till the end, and you shall rest, and shall stand in your allotted place at the end of days.” (Daniel 12:13)

      • David S

        well said! constantly appeasing Israel has to stop. only bernie sanders seems to have shown any mettle in standing up to the israel lobby. donald trumps speech at aipac was awful, more appeasement, more war!

        • Paul

          It’s not so much appeasing Israel and guaranteeing their right to a homeland … but not appeasing the neocon Zionists who took over the government there who have designs on conquering the entire Middle East (the same way the US neocons have taken over America with designs on conquering the entire world) … Trump does emphasize a strong military a lot … but I tell myself he is doing it to garner support from the neocon crowd … but with Bernie at least we definitely know he does not suck up to the neocon crowd and the American people can see it and will support such a man (giving Hillary a very hard time)!

    • dchayden

      Sadly, Neville Chamberlain was not the man “history” portrayed him as, he was much much more. I encourage further research into who this man really was, and then draw your “own” conclusion. Mainstream history, is very much like today’s mainstream news…sadly.

      ~dchayden

      • Robert Lykens (formerly Grafique)

        My point was not so much about Chamberlain as it was about negotiation/appeasement.
        Some wars desperately need to be fought.

        • sk

          Well, Mr. Lykens, what’s stopping you? The IDF takes volunteers. Just get a gun, boots, canteen, and uninform and wing your way to the Iranian border. But pretty please do not spend my country’s wealth or get young Americans killed for your delusional plans to remake the Middle East.

          • Greg Hunter

            SK,
            So does Hamas or Hezbollah.
            Greg

          • Russ McMeans

            Why does Israel need their IDF?…. Do your homework and open the history books please.

            • sk

              For the same reason that Iran need an army and weapons?

        • Russ McMeans

          Amen! I concur!

    • Michael Bierlein

      Many will disagree Robert . This president, which i disagree with 90 percent of his policies, has this one right. The new American Century The Chaney-Bush neo-Nazis called out by General Wesly Clark have killed off enough innocent woman and children since 9-11 and is shameful. Remember 5 countries in 7 year campaign? Destabilize every area of the middle east and Europe. Iran may saber rattle, though is no real challenge or worry to the US. We have all the worries here in our own country one needs. Example, the early Sunday release explains drought, famine, and the poisoning of the land and people.

      • Robert Lykens (formerly Grafique)

        But we have common defense treaties with other countries, namely Israel. Israel’s defense and well-being must be our Number One Priority.

        • lastmanstanding

          “Israel’s defense and well-being…

          You are so going to eat those words.

      • frederick

        Michael your common sense arguement will get you zero traction with zionist bootlickers like grafique His narrow mind will never allow for rational discourse and you are wasting your time on religious fanatics such as he They are just as dangerous as the radical Muslims or Jews do not be mistaken

      • frederick

        Depleted Uranium is wreaking havoc on the local population in İraq with hundreds of birth defects but Robert probably thinks like Madeline Albright that its just colateral damage and fully acceptable How pathetic is that? İ agree with you Michael it has to stop NOW

        • Greg Hunter

          Fredrick, Michael,
          I did a big story on CNN about DU munitions. I think it was part of my contract not being renewed. enjoy:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_1Utbd_z8I

          • frederick

            thank you for that Greg İ lnow you are a good person just alittle too pro Zionist for me but keep the truth coming We need all we can get

            • Greg Hunter

              Frederick,
              Israel not “Zionist.”

            But thank you and God bless you, Greg H., for trying.

    • Paul

      Robert … war is easy … but it is just an overt and destructive means of negotiation between rivals that leaves both sides bitter for generations … as the Bible says “blessed are the peace makers” … peace is hard … but accommodation and harmony can be achieved without war … just like the unsigned Iranian deal a grudging and hesitant start toward peace … accommodation should be our goal before dragging everyone into outright war … we can simply start by both sides military agreeing (not to kill women and children) … once that first step is taken … then move on to the next steps (i.e. no arms shipments into Gaza, etc.) … and so forth and so on … until a peaceful accommodation both sides can live with is reached by both sides … giving an inch can result a peaceful yard!

      • Robert Lykens (formerly Grafique)

        Paul, back when the US fought our wars for ourselves – not the UN – the losers became our allies and bitterness didn’t endure for generations.
        Fighting wars the Democrat Party way – in which we must try not to offend anyone, and in which we aren’t allowed to use too much force – definitely leaves both sides bitter, because nothing ever gets resolved like it used to when we completely defeated our enemies.

        The last war the US fought **AS THE US** was WWII. Every war since has been by the leave of the United Nations. That’s no way to fight a war or run a country.

      • frederick

        Paul that will NEVER happen Do you really truly believe that the İsraelis have any intention whatesoever to be fair? They have a greater İsrael project to move forward with and that plan has no room for the Palestinians thats pretty obvious

        • Greg Hunter

          Hey Frederick,
          Maybe if Hamas and the PA would stop saying their official goal is to totally destroy Israel, maybe they could cut a peace deal? You Israel bashers never bring up that part. I guess the Palestinians stabbing Jews is freedom fighting to you? Do you really believe that Hamas and the PA “have any intentions of being fair?” Oh yeah, that’s right radical Muslims never do anything wrong. It’s always the Jews.

          Here is a list of Radical Muslim attacks for the last 30 days alone in the world: http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/attacks/attacks.aspx?Yr=Last30

        Paul. There is a time for peace and a time for war. It’s time to fight back against the Moolims. Their founder/ Prophet is a fraud. Look at what he did to people of other countries. Barbarians deserve the sword. Let there be blood. They lie to us while in negotiations. Snakes.

    • frederick

      Typical Grafique warmongering comment Why dont you lead the way for your beloved İsrael?

      • Robert Lykens (formerly Grafique)

        Yes, it is my beloved Israel. Thank you for noticing.

        • aussie jeff

          Actually it’s God’s beloved Israel……
          And whether we like it or not the world will see this in due course.
          Do not let the current political Israel and how it is acting on the world stage allow you to think God has no interest in her.
          God,in His own time will bring her to full repentance,a severe and painful period lays ahead for this nation.
          Israel’s discipline involves all of us,how so?
          God loves Israel,those who openly or secretly hope for her demise will find themselves in a precarious position when God asks why?

          • Greg Hunter

            Amen Jeff.
            Greg

          • Keith

            Jeff,
            God’s historically beloved Israel is not the same as the current political, zionist Israel, any more than the remnant of God’s beloved children, the body and bride of Christ here in the US, are the same as the current US government; which like the current state of Israel, is run by the antichrist system – economically, politically, religiously, and militarily, and which also controls 90%+ of the world’s media.

            • Greg Hunter

              Keith,
              The Bible is clear in both the old and New Testament about Israel starting with Genesis. You are not right on this point.
              Greg

        • JC Davis

          Robert. Those that stand with Israel will be glad they did by July 2017.

    • Clare Doll

      Mr. Lykens,
      Each geographical area needs to handle its own problems just as we need to start handling ours. If you have NO MONEY, then you don’t go meddling. IRAN is no longer our business — bringing military crap and troops all the way out to the Middle East when you have NO MONEY is a no-brainer. Stick to defending what is yours close to home and give up the rest. The countries that are already there know what is happening and need to defend their own. Geographically, the Neville Chamberlain affair is not comparable.

      • Robert Lykens (formerly Grafique)

        Clare, that sounds great but we have commitments all around the Middle East as well as around the world.

        God has blessed and continues to bless nations which defend and befriend Israel. We can’t afford not to defend and fight for the people of God.

      • Russ McMeans

        I agree with you Clare, broke countries shouldn’t be a meddling. But I’m a Jew lover, so I have some issues here.

    • andyb

      Oh most definitely we need another World War to make Gates’ and Rockefeller’s wet dream agenda of depopulating the planet by 2/3 (sarc). We never seem to learn, do we?
      We continually allow the psychos in charge of policy to decimate our treasury and young men in useless aggression. But to what end? We are all being had by those that control the MIC (that Eisenhower warned against) in order to keep the bribery and corruption flowing. At least I realize it.

      • Greg Hunter

        The Gates and Rockefeller families should show us the way and depopulate themselves first. The word depopulate is just a nice word for mass murder. As a Christian I cannot judge but I expect it to be harsh for the perpetrators of this mass murder on humanity.
        Greg

      • diane s.

        The United States used to be respected and feared…now it is neither.
        Eisenhower was right.
        The MIC has taken this country down.
        Along with the Neocons….failed Socialism and Communism.
        Malignant messianic narcissist leaders
        Like Obama, Hillary and the Brussels EU gang.

      • Robert Lykens (formerly Grafique)

        I’m not paying attention to those “controlling the mic”, I’m paying attention to the Bible. We simply must defend Israel.
        Imagine the blessings God would give us if we were 100% committed to the security of God’s people.

          • Robert Lykens (formerly Grafique)

            Yes, Irice, there is overwhelming evidence in the Bible about Jewish, Zionist Israel in the end times -in both the Old and New Testaments.

            To deny this means denying that God is able to keep his promises.

        • Russ McMeans

          Amen. Remember the Jews wrote the Bible…. Or transcribed it from God. Google that subject if you’re so inclined. Amazing people folks, remember where our cell phones came from too… I’m doing this on an iPhone 6. Hey was Steve Jobs Jewish too? We better find out. The only problem is they are running our banking system into the ground. THAT’S A PROBLEM THAT IS VERY SERIOUS. We need a Jubilee please.

              But they didn’t. The Bible was written over hundreds of years and contains many books. So you are an atheist?

                I don’t think humans are CAPABLE of a definitive answer. Maybe that makes me an agnostic? Whenever an group of humans has concluded that they and only they have the one true answer, all hell (maybe all Hell? LOL) breaks loose.

      • steve

        Very true. There is always cause and effect. We have been maneuvered into an inter civilizational war between the Muslim and western civilizations. The meddling and rabble rousing of the west (stronger) toward the Middle east (weaker) and the attempt to garner hegemony is now out of control. The inability of western citizens to recognize the propaganda they receive on a continuing basis hurts any chance of segregating the civilizations at this point. One of the biggest propaganda pieces that prevented a positive relationship with Iran was in 2005 when Amadinejad was accused of giving a speech that said he wanted to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. I read multi Farsi translations of the speech. He never said such a thing. He said that the current regime in Israel will disappear with the sands of time. How does that translates into war with Israel? This little propaganda campaign allowed the non cooperation with Iran in any fight against Al Quida and now Isis from ever taking place. We all have been tricked and now we pay the piper.

        • Greg Hunter

          Steve,
          please stop with the poor translation red herring. The Supreme Leader wrote a book about destroying Israel. Here:http://nypost.com/2015/08/01/iran-publishes-book-on-how-to-outwit-us-and-destroy-israel/

          • Tin foil hat

            Grey,
            I always wonder about the poor translation excuse regarding Amadinejad’s speech to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.
            Thanks for the refutation.

        • frederick

          Exactly Steve we created and funded Al Queada during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and supported Bin Laden and now we are doing the same thing with this İSİS mercenary army of the week to take out Assad however Putin stuck his foot in the door and wouldnt take it out Anyone who cannot see that obvious truth is either not looking very well or in denial of facts

    • Diane D.

      More unconstitutional wars in the Middle East? How has the last 25 years of wars there worked out for America?

      I suggest Americans reread what is arguably the most important speech ever given on US soil, George Washington’s Farewell Address of 1796. “The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible…. It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.”

      • Robert Lykens (formerly Grafique)

        Diane, that can’t be done in today’s world. It just isn’t realistic. We must extend our influence because Russia, China and ISIS are extending theirs.

        • frederick

          NONSENSE Russia is responding to aggression against them by NATO/Zionists and are the ones attempting to destroy the mercenary army known as İSİS and its common knowledge by now who was behind the 911 false flag attacks GRAFİQUE so you are still defending the people who murdered 3000 fellow US citizens then do İ understand you correctly?

        • Tin foil hat

          Robert,
          Russia and China are not our enemies. ISIS is probably our useful idiots.
          Our enemy is from within, the banking cartel which has gradually stolen our heritage by using the progressive movement as a cloak or vice versa.

    • USAF Airman Rich Treadway

      Attacking Iran would be a step in the right direction. I was talking to William Crystal about the state of affairs and he points out that the longer we wait, the greater the need for a more expanded regional war, which probably will need to employ nukes. Ive never enjoyed the privilege of dropping a nuke bomb, but if we get the green light, I would never be happier to do my duty. My men are just itching to go back to the region and finish what we started 15 years ago. I would love to see Paul Ryan or Ted Cruz ascend to the presidency as they would certainly authorize such moves.

      • Jerry

        Airman Treadway,
        Have you ever had your best friends guts blown all over you? Probably not since you’re several thousand feet off the ground. For the rest of us ground pounders, we will pay the price for whatever insanity your overlords decide to inflict on us. Carry on.

      • Robert Lykens (formerly Grafique)

        Airman Treadway, I’m sure you see in the news, as I do, the threats and bullyings coming out of both Iran and N Korea. The more we negotiate, the more the leftists give away.
        The pressures continue to rise without being released. One day the pressure will become too great and the tank will explode, killing many, many more people than would have been killed had we “released the pressure” early on.
        When WWIII starts, or when a nuke explodes in NYC or DC, will we again try to fight “limited warfare”?

        • sk

          When a nuke explodes in NYC or Wash DC, most of us will probably suspect a bigger and better false flag! LOL!

          • frederick

            And why wouldnt we after 911? Fool me once sort of thing

      • K-in-Maryland

        There are only two types of people on the planet that actually want war :
        1. those that don’t have to fight it but profit from it (politicians/bankers)
        2. those that have no first-hand experience of it

        Why would you want to murder people in a foreign country you have never even met, know nothing about and have done nothing to harm you. I speak not of just Iran but of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria…

        Nobody is threatening the USA… it is just the opposite. Please, open your eyes and dispassionately observe what is happening on the planet? Who has the most military bases outside its own country? Who spends the most on the military? Who is dropping bombs and killing people on who?

      Having the gall to hide behind a facade of Christianity, your hypocrisy is both astonishing and obscene.

      The fictitious comments from character ‘Rich Treadways’ are IMO tongue in cheek and are made to bait WDer’s and to illustrate that there is a truly terrifying element of war hawkish lunacy residing within America. With you sir, there is no pretense whatsoever.
      You ARE the real deal.

      • Robert Lykens (formerly Grafique)

        Yes, I am the real deal, and glad of it. I’m neither naive enough to believe everything the media/government tell me, nor gullible enough to fall for every silly conspiracy theory that comes down the pike.

    • Linda L.

      Robert:
      War with Iran isn’t going to solve a thing (are you kidding!). The elites need to stop all the proxy wars perpetrated throughout the Middle East for starters (no wonder they hate us). We need to FOCUS on the issues/needs of America (strengthen our borders, address our dysfunctional healthcare system, unemployment issues, moral decay, bring manufacturing back to the US to create jobs, upgrade many of our infrastructures, improve our educational system with elimination of Communist Core etc.,). The last thing that we need to be doing is spending billions of ‘paper’ dollars while losing all our precious youth to more dead end wars in the Middle East/Iran and then ultimately Russia/China. Next time, the party/country that initiates war in the specified areas mentioned will usher in WW3. If Hillary Clinton is elected President, you can bet that she’ll lead us to a War without winners. God help America.

      • Robert Lykens (formerly Grafique)

        Linda, I’m not surprised that you said “dead end wars”. That’s what we have fought since WWII, because as I pointed out above, every war the US has fought since has been under the auspices of the UN.
        Wars need to be fought ruthlessly, to win – not timidly, to contain.
        In spite of having the greatest military the world has ever seen, the leftists have us fighting with half-measures. That leads to “dead end wars”.

        • Russ McMeans

          I’m siding with Robert, this PC peace is killing us by a thousand cuts every day!

        linda L.
        Don’t be confused, Muslims will hate us regardless of all the proxy wars perpetrated throughout the Middle East.
        Muslims hate all infidels. They have been killing Buddhists and Hindus in S.E. Asia, whom never start or have anything to do with the proxy wars in the Middle East.

        • frederick

          Tin foil that is total NONSENSE My wife and her family are all Muslims and they dont hate anyone You are painting too wide a swath and that is not only untrue and unfair but dangerous İta exactly what TPTB want to create hate between cultures for their benefit

          • Tin foil hat

            frederick,
            Well, Turkish Muslims are probably the only Sunnis who are not as radical because of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.
            Being that Turkey is the only Islamic nation which bans Sharia Law, Turkish Muslims are exceptionally moderate. especially the ones who reside in the cities. There are other moderate Muslims who I have no problem with but they are the minorities such as the Alevi and Ahmadis sects. However, these truly moderate Muslim minorities are getting killed just like other infidels by their Muslim brothers.
            Open your eyes, statistic shows that Muslims always have problems with all their neighbors no matter what religion or ethnicity. Sunnis are the worse. Shiites are a little better, they don’t blow themselves up. Alevi and Ahmadis are good and that’s why other Muslims kill them.
            I’m pretty sure you wife and her family don’t follow Sharia Law.
            TPTB is using the century old conflict between the Sunni and Shiite to maintain the balance in the Mid East. Their violent tendencies were not created by the west, they learn that from the Quran.

      • Robert Lykens (formerly Grafique)

        No winners in nuclear war. That’s why we need to stop Iran/N Korea now.

      How many nations has Iran destroyed with its brute force military lately?
      How many secret agencies does Iran have that are “above the law”?
      How many nations do Iran currently have puppet governments inserted into, doing their bidding?
      How many military bases does Iran have on each continent?
      How much money printing does Iran do?
      How many people in Iran are currently on food stamps?
      You speak of “something that needs to be done”.
      I know what needs to be done sir…….
      Respectfully, you need to go out and purchase a mirror……then use it.

      • Robert Lykens (formerly Grafique)

        I disagree. Both Iran and N Korea are dangerous, paranoid states that will explode when they’re ready. To ignore that fact, to appease them, will certainly bring disaster. Iran knows that our current “president” will do nothing but negotiate, so they act with impunity.

        History shows that ruthless war followed by total victory is followed by peace and alliance between the factions.
        That’s the best possible outcome, but the spineless among us cry for “limited war”. All that does is postpone the larger war.

      • Robert Lykens (formerly Grafique)

        N Korea is a perfect example of the point I’ve been trying to make. The Korean War in the 1950s was a United Nations action. It was the first such action for the United States. It also happened to be the first war that we fought which had no resolution. We should have fought that war like we fought WWII.
        It will be fought to a resolution one day. Why wait until they have nuclear ICBMs?
        Same for Iran. That war will also be fought one day. Why wait until they have nuclear ICBMs? If they don’t already have them that is.
        The United States used to be the great force for good in the world, but liberalism and the United Nations have infected this body like the disease they are – a spiritual disease.
        One of its symptoms is timidity.

Please young man, look into the lies about Iraq and Saddam Hussein. Remember, the US went into Iraq over WMD but never found them, why ? Because there weren’t any and all that were important knew that. Rich, It was all about Iraq selling oil in Euro’s and not King Dollar. Rich, you are told over and over about spreading freedom and democracy. However, Its one BIG LIE……. I was there in your shoes in 1979 at 18 years old, all rip roaring to go. PLEASE, look deeper into Vietnam and Iraq, both costed over 5 million innocent lives. PS, you are active military ? Strange, because most are warned not to go on a truth site like USA Watchdog and only watch Fox News o9r main street news. I think your full of it.

    Great wrapup, Greg. I do appreciate your analysis while I am distracted by farming!

    One of the things this country has
    never grasped is the mindset of the middle east. Clan loyalty is everything. History 1000s of years years ago is yesterday to them, and they do not forget. Also, Religion is paramount.

    So, when they threaten but don’t deliver tomorrow it doesn’t mean they can’t, or they’ve lost interest. No, they have a plan, a date significant to them and they WILL strike. With a weak president, there is no question they will strike.

    The economy is a mess and probably the most lied about item by the MSM. It’s all good, to them.

    I liked the cartoon and can only hope it will be a reality. Hillary in the dock, yes!!!

    Too bad there’s less chance of justice for the rest of the elite.

    As to inventory, my advice to friends is, if you need it, buy it now. You won’t be able to get the item when stocks run out. Discounts are everywhere because products aren’t moving but there will be no restock. Get your new item while you can.

    Greg,
    Great wrap. This is what happens when the hypocrites that yelled peace in the 1960’s take charge of affairs. The enemies of America were their friends so now they are selling us out to these evil bastards. We are in a “race to the bottom” as far as currency goes. I just hope there is something left when we get there. Yes, God is indeed, in charge.

    Hi All
    Here is a interview on Gold, Silver and world markets by Jordan from the Australian Bullion Company that I found to be unbiased and interesting.
    I like this guy because I think he speaks with honesty, I get his free news letters and have never thought that he just pushes gold down our throats like so many other gold dealers do.
    He also makes a strong case for holding silver.
    Hope some of you find this interesting and as unbiased as I did.

    Thanks Greg, glad to hear your bringing Dane Winington back on. I’ve spent over 1000 hours of study on geoengineering and our outlook is dim. Yes, for the short period the economic Great Depression #2 will be rough on us all, and nothing to laugh at. However, compared to what’s really to come its only a drop in the bucket. I hope most of your followers understand SRM and the microwaving of the atmosphere, really does as a whole. We are in the 6th Great Mass Extinction Period with little time left, and even if we somehow went back to pre 1775 industrial revolution living the reverse feed back loops will be hard to overcome. Artic news, has said we have the smallest density of ice at the North pole in 10,000 years. And we all know what that means. Its so hard to believe the military and or our Gov’t could do this stratospheric aerosol spraying, but it is being done. We as humans conquered the planet within a couple of hundred of years not knowing how quickly we destroyed it. For those whom are non-believers in Christ, pray for the healing of the Satanist rulers or TPTB. For otherwise we have no chance forward past at most 20 years. I’m trying to recall a verse from Matthew, about the end of days, and If not for Christ all would perish in terror. Having a hard time remembering. Anyway Greg thank you for keeping us all informed, time is running out.

  13. MICHAEL BIERLEIN

    Greg, in a follow up on Matthew verse. Written as a question in meaning. Growing up wondering what this scripture meant. “For then there will be a great tribulation such as has not occurred since the world’s beginning until now, no, nor, will occur again. In fact, unless those days were cut short, no flesh would be saved, but on account of the chosen ones those days will be cut short.” Matthew 24 21-22. This is our future for mankind. With the terrors of genocide, homicide, and the terrors of it all. Radiation poisoning FUKUSHIMA, the oceans, uranium dumps into the oceans, microwaving the atmosphere, electronic waves of the atmosphere, chemical dumps into lakes and rivers, GMO’s, herbicides and pesticides, and the overall outlook of planet earth as a dumping ground. In truth Al Gore and his ideas were a scam, for sure. But his outlook at 50 to 100 years is a lie of another. Think short term of 10 or 20 years before we have virtually no living life left. Dane, may bring up Venus syndrome which will grip this planet some time in the future.. I don’t include we as humans that love and care for our friends, loved ones, and our planet. However, all governments and militaries pollute one million times more then we whom care, for all living life on earth. SRM, aka chemtrails are all so very real, and in them is death caused by aluminum, strontium, barium, among other poisons. God speed and fear not.

  14. Paul

    Greg I see no end to this. Our officials are the law makers the criminals the investigators of their own crimes and the judges of their own crimes and actions, therefore no body on top ever goes to jail. There is no independent group in power that is powerful enough making sure all is legal of their actions and can actually make a difference. So unless there is a total collapse or revolution, it continues and all we the sheepal can ever do is complain and talk about it while we are forced to watch it all happen. Thanks for your efforts.

        Greg,
        Jesus Christ is the begotten Son of the G-d of Abraham, Issac and Jacob who lived in the flesh. Greg, I do not have the confidence you have with the current Zionist regime in Israel. I doubt very much all the tribes of Israel have been regathered in Israel at this time. There are two types of promises made to Israel; 1. Physical Israel (land) and 2. The blood line of Jacob renamed Israel. Please keep in mind Jesus Christ converted many Israelites when he walked the earth. No matter how much you support Zionism, one must believe Jesus Christ died on the cross for the sins of man to receive eternal life and as of now Zionist do not believe in Jesus Christ.

        • Greg Hunter

          Jallen,
          What is important about Israel is God loves and protects Israel. Protecting Israel and God’s love for Israel is mentioned in the Bible many times starting with Genesis. The “Zionists” have nothing to do with God’s love for Israel with he says will be “eternal” I don’t support Zionism. I support God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ.

    So I am supposed to believe that “journalists” working for various news agencies around the world, have worked together in good faith on this Panama paper “leak,” for an extended period of time, and released limited parts of it together in sync around the world, and not one news agency tried to scoop the other over the supposed biggest leak in history, and only releasing limited or allowed pieces of its data? …Really?…I am supposed to believe that? This whole thing reeks of “operatives,” *cough ..cia..*cough ….I am sorry. Sounds to me like a bigger cartel attacking some of its lesser rivals, with acceptable collateral damage along the way. As well, like clock work, very shortly after the “leak,” we have Obama calling for international tax reform …*cough …global governance…cough* ….

    I am more interested in who these Panama papers DO NOT include, than the names included.

    There was once a very religious man who owned a beautiful house next to a river. The lord had blessed him many times in his life because of his obedience. Then one day it began to rain and rain and the river began to rise. First his neighbors came by in a truck and said its time to leave your house. The man said, I’m not worried “the lord will provide”. The rains kept coming and pretty soon the water began to rise. So much so that the man was forced to move to the second story of his house to escape the rising water. Soon a rescue boat came by, and once again the man refused to leave his house saying “the lord will provide”. Once again the waters began to rise, so much so that the man was forced to flee to the roof of his house to escape the rising waters. Soon an emergency helicopter arrived and a rope was lowered, but once again the man refused to leave his house saying I am not concerned “the lord will provide”. With that the water began to rise again, and soon the man drowned. When the man finally reached heaven he said, ” lord I don’t understand you promised me if I was obedient that you would take care if me”. The lord said ” I sent you a truck, a boat, and a helicopter, what else did you want from me”?

    We I read this headline, I think of that story. How many times do we need to be warned? http://www.wsj.com/articles/deutsche-bank-and-credit-suisse-here-come-the-hard-yards-1459779399

  17. K-in-Maryland

    Greg – not sure why you are always bashing Iran. Israel has nukes, Pakistan has nukes, Saudi likely has them and the USA zio-controlled-neocons have made it public for years that they want to do to Iran (see General Wesley Clark video or Col Wilkerson) what they have already done to : Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and now Syria. If was the president of Iran, I would have nukes as a pseudo second amendment protection against the thugs that are currently running the US. How about we turn that criticism to our own, obvious behavior in world? We spend more than all countries combined on military. We have 100+ military bases world wide, we have invaded and destroyed many countries since the end of WW2. Our drones/bombs kill more people in the world on an annual basis than any other country on the planet – not to mention murdering of our own US citizens via “extrajudicial” decisions from the white house! We need to fix our own house before casting any more stones abroad.

    • Greg Hunter

      K-in MD,
      What you call bashing I call analysis and reporting. You are welcome to start your own site and show us all how it’s done. By the way do you realize how we enjoy the standard of living we have. Hint: It has something to do with the military.

      Greg

      • Colin - 'the farmer from NZ'

        Greg
        Just my 2 cents worth from the south seas, but the US continues to enjoy its high standard of living for two reasons alone;
        #1 The perpetual global hegemonic terrorism and warfare that Washington inflicts.
        #2 The fact that up until recently you are still able to sell your debt

        The world at large is becoming sick to death of the reckless bully and will no longer put up with its incoherent behaviour. Notice too that they are not stupid enough to continue to buy your debt either. The party and ‘the high standard of living’ is all but over and will most certainly cease when the off the books ESF fund is exhausted.

        I’m sorry Greg but from where I stand most of what ‘K-in-Maryland’ said is absolutely true and yet he/she undeservedly gets the familiar….. “You are welcome to start your own site and show us all how its done.”….treatment.

        Col
        PS By the way ‘K-in-Maryland’, last time I checked your country had 400+ off-shore military bases. To give this figure some perspective China has 4!!!!!!!

      • Jallen

        Greg,
        Did it ever dawn on you, America has become the Modern Day BABYLON? One of the main reasons our standard of living is so high is THE PETRO DOLLAR which is backed by Saudia Arabian oil and the US Military. Why do you think we attacked IRAQ? Do yoy think THE FEDERAL RESERVE is Honest Money? America was high jacked in 1913. So your thinking is to hell with the rest of the world as long as we have HIGH STANDARD OF living. You would be wise to give more respect to K-in MD. Shame on you Greg and I mean shame!! I know, I can start my own wibe site, Greg, pick up your marbles and go home.
        You sure do act like a Zionist. Keep this line of thinking and you web site will deteriorate. Wake up!!! By the way, as Jerry will tell you, THE PETRO DOLLAR WILL BE REPLACED BY A GOLD BACKED CURRENCY and there goes your HIGH STANDARD OF LIVING. Greg, K-in MD just outed you. Ban me and you ban the truth!

            Frederick,
            There is no “folly in my ways.” This is what God the Father says about Israel: Genesis 12:3 “3And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

            This is a theme through the Old and New Testament of the Bible. You are on the wrong side if you are cursing Israel.
            Greg

      • K-in-Maryland

        Greg – c’mon Greg, we enjoy our standard of living because we were the last man standing after WW2 with industrial might, a belief in the constitution and the ultimate power of the worlds-reserve-currency. We no longer have the the first two and we have severely abused the third by allowing a private central bank (federal reserve) to control/profit via extreme global usury… now the banks run our politicians, dominate global money and are moving the world toward global monetary slavery. In a strange way, we can learn a few things from Iran : don’t invade other countries, abolish usury, deny the existence of central bank, wipe out external foreign control of the people’s government.

        I like your news (I contribute financially). I just think your analysis on this particular topic is not balanced/fair and lacks a larger perspective. I never hear you talk about the genocide being conducted in palestine and the blatant theft of their homeland.

        • Greg Hunter

          K,
          What you call genocide, the Israelis would call self defense. How about all those attacks and stabbings in the last several months in Israel done by Palestinians? I guess you are going to ignore the “genocide” by Hamas and Hezbollah? (Which, by the way, are financed by Iran.) How’s that for “balance.” Maybe you should take you own advice and study both sides of an equation? Just because we disagree doesn’t me I “lack perspective.” Did you ever think that it is you who “lack perspective”?
          Greg

        • Tin foil hat

          K-in-Maryland,
          I concur with everything except Palestine and the blatant theft of their homeland.
          Muslims in the Middle East couldn’t tolerate a non Islamic nation in their midst and used the Palestinians, useful idiots, to overturn or undone Israel. That is why their muslim brothers never took in the Palestinians into Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey ….. etc.
          Jordan was the only one which took them in and blew them into smithereens shortly afterward.
          Israel gave the Palestinians more than once to coexist and be independent. The Jews may have done them wrong in the past but I don’t think they are obligated to do more to right the past wrong.

  18. CrazyCanuck

    Greg,
    The Panama Papers story certainly seems to have legs. As Zero Hedge and RT suggest, something is amiss. The big tell is that the leak was given to a MSM outlet instead of uploaded direct to the Internet. Consequently, the West’s ( read American Empire’s ) propaganda machine fires up and searches using its criteria, getting the initial narrative out that evil Putin, his cronies and friends like Assad, are crooks par excellence. I watch for the fat finger flushing of vast swatches of the file before any mining can be done that embarrasses key 1 percenters from the Empire.
    Or it could be that the Empire insists its criminals and thieves ( political & regular ) keep their stashes in Amurica in haven states such as Rhode Island.

    Greg, Iran has been making fools out of the U.S. for about 35 years now and counting (ever since the hostage crisis of the Carter Administration), why should they stop now. Can’t figure out even why Obama would have done that deal in the first place, it staggers the imagination, Israel and the U.S. are not safer now than we were. Also, maybe I am naive but I honestly don’t think you can make a deal at any level when the other side is supporting & declaring “Death to America, Death to the Great Satan” etc. This “deal” will eventually lead to war because it emboldens Iran into a false narrative that it can continue to do as it pleases and the U.S. will never do anything about it; well maybe that is a fact, but the wild card is Israel and you can’t for certain say that for them. Israel will not stand by idly forever with nuclear missiles on the launch pad that you can be sure of. Obama’s foreign policy is a bald face disaster, he has made the world less safe, N. Korea is another prime example, among others.

    The Washington Post says that Trump is “embracing a distinctly gloomy view of the economy that counters mainstream economic forecasts” … so Trump and Greg Hunter have something very much in common which puts Trump on the side of us WatchDogger’s … I note something interesting I see looking at a chart of the Australian dollar … it seems to be breaking upward out of its years long downtrend … this can only mean the US Dollars path from here is down … which is good for gold and good for getting the economy moving upward again … for with a cheaper US dollar all those trucks in inventory can be sold!

    http://usdefensewatch.com/2016/04/china-deploys-nuke-subs-to-us-west-coast-invokes-defense-treaty-with-russia/

    Some are saying that this move is in response to the tensions that are growing in the south China sea. I disagree. I think this is a cautionary maneuver to make sure that Americas rogue government doesn’t launch a preemptive strike against China as they move closer to the economic kill shot that most likely may commence with the coming Gold Price Fix on April 19th. Lets not forget as long as gold is artificially suppressed, the dollar remains strong. But China has plans, and it doesn’t include the dollar. They did not corner the Gold market just for the fun of it.

    With Iran’s history, which includes having it’s Democratic government overthrown by the U.S. in 1953 followed by the U.S. installation of the Shah, one of the most brutal dictators on the planet, the U.S. government’s support of Saddam Hussein and his war against Iran, and the endless threats by nuclear armed Israel (which refuses to sign the NPT) and endless threats by the U.S., who can blame Iran for desiring weapons to defends itself? Given Iran’s history of being a peaceful nation, I don’t see why some people get so worked up about this. The real threats to world peace today are the U.S. and Israeli governments, who have a long and documented history of war crimes and aggression.

    • Greg Hunter

      Henry,

            I guess what I am trying to say here is no one has a white hat, and one has a black hat.
            A war…..A BIG WAR…..is coming, you are right.
            It CAN be avoided though.
            The US government, military, Fed, CIA……ALL OF THEM…….need to realise one simple truth:
            The name of this world is Planet Earth.
            It is not, never will, nor ever SHOULD be, Planet America.
            To them I say, “Go home. Enrich your nation from within……stop raping from without. The whole world awaits your reintroduction to the brotherhood of nations, and will welcome you there when you return…..every single one…..as God Himself intended from the beginning”
            Peace and happiness to you and all others x

        • Henry

          Well said, ray. Greg, I have a lot of respect for you and the reporting you do, but I truly believe that when it comes to dealing with the ME, you let your religion cloud your judgement. I was really pleased to see you question the free fall, symmetric drop of WTC7 late in the day on 9-11-01. Fact is, that was a controlled demolition, and 9-11 was a “false flag” operation carried out by self proclaimed Christians, not Muslims. Of course there are some very radical and violent Muslim fanatics, but people tend to get crazy when their families, friends, and neighbors are terrorized, bombed, droned, kidnapped, and tortured for years with no end in sight. Even more so, when this happens because of a big lie….

          • Greg Hunter

            Henry,

            Just because we have different views doesn’t me my “religion cloud(s my) judgment.” Maybe your lack of religion clouds your judgment? As I have told you before: Start your own site and put your views out there. It’s easy.

            Greg

      • Henry

        We’re told by the U.S. government and its corporate media (the same people responsible for the genocide of hundreds of thousands of innocent people in Iraq and Afghanistan, including many thousands of women and children) that Hezbollah and Hamas are “terrorist” groups. However, the people they help and defend from U.S. and Israeli bombings and terror attacks will tell you a much different story. To the victims of U.S. and Israeli aggression, they are heroes and freedom fighters.
        Saudi terrorists just murdered scores of women and children in Yemen. Guess who provides that brutal, undemocratic, terrorist regime with the latest high tech weaponry? Fact is, unlike the U.S. government and its allies, Iran does not have a history of aggression. It has a history of being threatened, attacked, and having it’s Democratic government overthrown by the U.S. because Iran made the “mistake” of believing that it owned the oil within it’s borders.

        • Greg Hunter

          Henry,

          Greg

          • Henry

            Greg says: “Henry, You really should move to Iran. Greg”

            That sort of reply seems beneath you, and it doesn’t address any of the hard facts I’ve posted. You don’t seem to be interested in addressing or discussing the facts in this topic, Greg. That’s why I say your religion clouds your judgment where ME conflicts are involved.

            • Greg Hunter

              Henry,
              What you call “hard facts” I call spin and cherry picking information that agrees with your point of view. I think your disbelief in God clouds your judgment. It’s hard to be conflicted when you are black and empty inside.

        The hypocrisy is really something pertaining to İran Greg says that they have funded terrorist groups for the last 30 years OK maybe so but how much murder and mayhem has the CİA/MOSSAD and other groups funded and caused around the world in that same time period? İ am not condoning any terrorist activity far from it but to single out the İranians really smacks of predjudice İMO

        • Henry

          I do believe in God, but without the extremism and fanaticism. You seem to have a lot of anger and hatred in your heart. I am as far from black and empty inside as a human can be. You come across as the Christian equivalent of the people you hate – a religious extremist/fanatic who uses his religion to demonize and dehumanized others. You and religious extremists of other religions are two sides of the same coin. Your beliefs are a far cry from those of Jesus Christ, a man of peace, tolerance, compassion, and understanding….

          • Greg Hunter

            Henery,
            I run a free site and let lots of people I do not agree with comment. Now you are calling me a “religious extremist” because we don’t agree, which is just a page from the lefty/socialist/communist playbook to destroy your opponent. That is just empty rhetoric and exposes the fact you really have no argument. Peace.

      Henry the real threats to world peace are not just the US and Israel but “all” nuclear armed nations … this is why all nuclear weapons should be given up and put under United Nations control … Iran joining the nuclear club only adds an additional threat to world peace … until the current nuclear armed powers give up their weapons the world will never be at peace because the nuclear armed nations (just like the elites) are above the law … Iran (just like Trump) is not part of the “establishment” … and the current nuclear elites don’t want Iran to be “above the law” … this is why the unsigned deal with Iran is “mostly acceptable” to the Powers that Be … because it keeps Iran out of the nuclear (above the law) club!

    • freebreezer

      Henry, Pleaseeeeee – ‘one of the most brutal dictators on the planet’. Think before writing such an unqualified line … Stalin, Hitler, The Turks via the Armenian genocide, Mao, Khemer Rouge, Castro bothers are just a few that come to mind per brutal dictators … I could go on and on. The Shaw didn’t even make it to the minor leagues. Anyway, who ever is ruling in the ME seems to like to kill and execute dissidents, torture, rape, imprison their opposition … it seems to be a theme. And if you were a peaceful nation like the old Christian Lebanon, you guys overthrow the government and start the killing anew. The Shaw was brutal on hard line Islam and it is pretty obvious why – they seem to like to kill everyone. Hard line Islam (now ruling Iran) is brutal on anything western … and hell, they even executed disc jockeys -talk about going to the bottom of the barrel to kill people! I would guess that Iran’s present regime has killed, maimed etc. as many if not more as compared to the Shaw did on the other side ( I wish I had time to research this). point of fact – the present hard line Islam regime hang gays (google gay/Iran – very sad!), imprison Christians, kill Jews, rapes their women etc, etc, etc. Same old theme, except the present Iran dictators hate the US and every thing western and they repeatedly say they want to wipe us off the earth – that killing theme Again! … and in following hard line Islam protocol (think of the killing theme) they are likely to try. Now explain to me why we should not worry about Iran? Per the 1953 ‘a democratic gov’ … NO it was not! Just another power monger hungering to become dictator. See the blog from Rickards per sources. Personally, I wish the US would take Rand Pauls position.

      “Freebreezer”, when you claim that the Castro brothers were more brutal than the U.S. installed Shah of Iran, one can only conclude that you’re trolling or severely misinformed. That’s *simply* absurd.

      http://www.democracynow.org/2013/9/11/noam_chomsky_us_has_been_torturing_iran_for_60_years_since_1953_coup

      “Well, what’s the crucial fact about Iran, which we should begin with, is that for the past 60 years, not a day has passed in which the U.S. has not been torturing Iranians. That’s 60 years, right now. Began with a military coup, which overthrew the parliamentary regime in 1953, installed the Shah, a brutal dictator. Amnesty International described him as one of the worst, most extreme torturers in the world, year after year. When he was overthrown in 1979, the U.S. almost immediately turned to supporting Saddam Hussein in an assault against Iran, which killed hundreds of thousands of Iranians, used extensive use of chemical weapons.”

    General Wesley Clark: Wars Were Planned – Seven Countries In Five Years

    “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.” I said, “Is it classified?” He said, “Yes, sir.” I said, “Well, don’t show it to me.” And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, “You remember that?” He said, “Sir, I didn’t show you that memo! I didn’t show it to you!”

      I saw this video with General Wesley Clark a year or so ago. 911 was an internal arrangement, having absolutely nothing to do with Iraq or Afghanistan. The day it was announced that America was going to invade Iraq, my heart sunk in disbelief. I never understood it. All our young men and women soldiers who were killed fighting in the region, and innocent civilians too for political aspirations of the elites (makes me sick). I wish that more Americans understood this truth.

So, yes, a bit helter-skelter but I got the main points out. I thought the Iran Info was the really big story and it was way under-reported.

    The focus on Iran { A country with a rather benign foreign policy for the past several hundred years } is really ludicrous in light of the fact that the United States overthrew the very secular government of Mossadech back in the fifties ; which opened up the gateway to the crap we are experiencing today.

    This is interesting and after I seen it I thought that the whole entire Cruz vs Trump on the wives thing was all staged – all planned.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lV-onKp8XJ8

    Now I seen the film of the Cruz created family videos prior to the above Video.
    But what I didn’t see was how he took that line from Michel Douglas !!

    Seems the Cruz people seem to know how to push Trumps buttons.
    He planned all this as he was prepared for that reporter – had the line memorized.
    What else did he memorize?

    Did Cruz also plant the story of 5 woman in the Enquirer?
    The story looks like it is false.

    So who would have gained from a fake story which came out when the Vote in Wisconsin was about to take place.

    Thing is Trump didn’t bite on that one.

    I agree with the author of that video – Jim Beckwith
    There seems to be nothing real when your are dealing with Ted Cruz.
    It looks like everything you see is fake.

    I wouldn’t get too excited about the Panama papers dump. The fact that it was coordinated among corporate “journalists”–not shared with anyone else–especially alt media, pretty much tells you everything you need to know.

    Wow, I can always count on you just to speak truth. You placed blame were it belongs, and its my hope, that if Mr. Trump is elected, he will expose and deal with the corruption in Washington. And though he doesn’t profess Christ as savior, God has chosen and used kings throughout history, that held a respect for him and his ways. Its my hope also, he does not take a liberal stance on abortion. I have tried to contact him to let him know my views about these matters. We cannot as a nation support things like abortion, and expect God’s blessing on our nation. We should be getting close to a word on Clintons email scandal soon. The last I knew the FBI was nearing ready to interview or dispose Clinton for questioning. Mr. Trump, if elected, could be a fresh breath of air, and begin to break down the globalist plans of capturing our nation. I just hope the people awake in time. With your help, and others, we could see a turn around for our nation. Thanks Greg, for not being afraid to speak the truth, and may the Lord reward your efforts. Farewell

      I have refused to fly commercial since 9/11. I do not believe the security theater. I am willing to travel via charter or via a private flight. There is no way I will ever fly commercial in the US until the security theater ends.

      There were a number of people caught working in airports behind the supposedly secure lines that were on US watchlists. This happened after the last big attack in Paris. A number of people were discovered to be on watchlists that had access to airplanes in Paris. The same thing happened after the Brussels terrorist attacks and more people were found to not only be working at the airport, but some airport workers cheered after the Belguim terrorist attack.

      It has amazed me that no stinger missiles or Manpads have not been used against commercial flights in the US. I expect this type of event to happen. When? Soon.

    The Panama papers is disturbing and the MSM is refusing to report on it. Hillary Clinton is not qualified to be president, for this on top of all the other corrupt things she has done. Bernie Sanders said Hillary was “not qualified” and the MSM jumped all over him! I watched the CNN folks all criticize Bernie and denounce him, but he was right! The MSM will do whatever is necessary to guarantee Hillary is elected president. I’m starting to feel that the FBI will not find anything wrong with her handling of classified information. They have had plenty of time to prove the obvious case against her.

    If the FBI finds Hillary innocent I would never trust the FBI again. I would suggest we should build a statue to Edward Snowden and praise every other spy in US history, in that case! If Hillary were to be elected president, the USA would no longer be a country to be respected.

    Greg, your explanation of the problems you had with getting this wrap-up produced were quite amusing. When you are in ?Missouri, I always notice the sound of the wind gusts, sounds like your broadcasting at sea. You give a smooth solid talk and one would never guess at all the snags you’re dealing with in putting out your product.

    I, too, like your all-man attire when you go country. Even when you “dress down,” you still have that Johnny Carson flare with the casual. My personal pick is the plaid shirt and dark glasses. I studied in clothes design at one point, so I tend to notice how people dress. Fr. Martin of “Chalk Talk” fame used to remark: “If you look like a bum, chances are.” You and Mannarino make boss mannequins.

    I could have gone with Cruz up until I noted the personalities standing with him, heeding the warning, “show me your friends.” Also do not believe he has crossover appeal. Even if Trump can overcome the big guns and the dirty press, you know even better than I do just how entrenched all the opposition is, from influence, power, to their very paychecks.

    This ploy with building up Paul Ryan as the “reasonable, mellow alternative” to “all the bitter division” is a real hoot. I’m just observing to see if he is built up to suddenly seem like the only guy running, and the most brilliant man in the room.

    Looks like the powers like going deep bench with unknowns like B Clinton, Obama, Ryan. Build a false persona and then stuff the public like a goose on the magical traits of their hand picks, traits that tend to spell t-r-a-i-t-o-r.

    A good commentary from David Stockman on the establishment fear of Trump.

    One thing that I see taking critical mass is the talk host battle lines over candidates. I knew it would lead there, surprised it took so long. Levin and Savage, in particular, are locked in a death dance. Those 2 in particular despise each other from way back. Others are involved but are shiftier about it.

    It’s why I get queasy when people get personal, it usually ends in a pile of rubble. I remember a time when people could spar and laugh during the process. We are humorless. Nothing seems to suffice short of taking the other person out.

    In all of this, I’ve come to have a new-found appreciation of Hannity lately. He interrupted Ingraham at one point stating, “I don’t care anymore,” meaning he had the country in mind and let the chips fall.

    However, it looks like the conservatives are out to punch each other out of the ring. They are acting more like 2 Muslim factions hellbent on erasing each other. It comes done to power, influence, fat egos, and paychecks. The stew they are creating is poisoning the process, sickening observers.

    Come November, President Hillary, not a scratch, not a hair out of place.

    From reading other post and probably I not sure some of Greg’s past interviews it has been stated to put your valuables in physical gold and get it out of the country to protect it from the so called reset in the monetary policies coming. Isn’t it fair to say that the Panama papers thing is people trying to protect them selves for that which is coming?

    Since Iran does not have the reputation of being a warmongerer and the US and Israel have…….there must be more to the story.
    Well there is: the “sable rattling” of Iran is a deterent to the fact that Germany sells/sold subs to Israel that are immediately re-fitted for nuclear missles going to be stationed in the seas around Iran. (maybe already are).
    Some more research would be a good idea, Greg.

      What do you call funding Hamas and Hezbollah for decades to attack Israel? “Some more research would be a good idea.”

        frederick,
        Did Iran fund Hamas and Hezbollah first or Israel got the submarine with nuclear missiles first?
        British divided Palestine between the Jews and the Palestinian Muslims. Other Muslims from the region decided that Israel had no rights to exist and attacked. They never intended to kick the Jews out and gave the land to the Palestinians, they were going to divide the lands among themselves. Israel was not the aggressor from the get go.
        I’m not a Jew and I think we should mind our own business. However Israel has the right to defend herself.
        I believe the only time Israel screw up was when she invaded Egypt on behalf of the French and the British over the Suez Canal.
