Weekly News Wrap-Up 9.26.14

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

The top story is the bombing campaign on ISIS in Syria and Iraq, but at this stage, it is mostly Syria.  The U.S. promises a “Long Campaign,” with the bombing of the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.  The Obama Administration has the support of other Arab nations, but the most important support comes from Saudi Arabia.  Remember last year when the Obama Administration backed out of bombing Syria.  Top Saudi officials were quoted as saying that they were “stabbed in the back” by President Obama.  Fast forward to today and rumors of Saudi Arabia to stop using the petro dollar when selling oil.  No doubt the Saudis threatened to pull the plug on the dollar.  Now, it looks like this bombing deal in Syria will prolong the use of the dollar when buying and selling oil, at least for a while.   One other thing, President Obama talked at the UN and asked for help with the Islamic State that he called a “network of death.”  The liberal press can’t bring itself to call this what it really is–Islamic extremists.  This story calls them Middle East militants.

Eric Holder announced he is quitting his job as Attorney General.  My question is why now?  I guess it could be any number of things such as the “Contempt of Congress” case that is proceeding.  It could also be the “Fast and Furious” case that a federal judge just ruled that there can be no more delays with providing records.  It may also be the IRS targeting that, in reality, is felony First Amendment criminal activity to suppress political opponents.  In this case, Tea Party Republicans were targeted by IRS criminals.  There is “not a smidgeon of evidence” in wrongdoing according to the President, but then again, all those hard drives crashed and were destroyed with no backup.   I think Holder is going to be a political hot potato, and he’s leaving office well ahead of the 2016 election so to do as little damage as possible to the Democrats.  Holder’s problems are far from over.

The top commander of NATO says there is cease-fire in Ukraine in “name only.”   You have not heard much on this subject, but it too, is far from over.  Russia is now drafting some new laws in response to the sanctions from the West over Ukraine.  Russian lawmakers want to seize property of foreign companies inside Russia.   Let’s just name a few things that can be seized if this law passes, and I think it will.  McDonald’s has hundreds of stores in Russia.  BP and Shell oil have major projects there.  Think they will be able to remove equipment such as refineries and drilling rigs?  France has a very big dairy operation in Russia.  French businesses can lose everything from cows to pasture land and barns.  Germany has 6,000 companies doing business in Russia.  I am sure there are lots to seize there too.  Let’s not forget winter is around the corner, and you can expect Russia to cut natural gas supply and raise prices.  My only question is will they stop the sanctions before or after Europe’s economy goes into a full blown depression.

Finally, I have the crop report.  Bumper crops here in the Midwest back to the East, but the West is a far different story.  Most of California is at the worst level of drought, and many other places from Texas to Oregon are very dry.  This spring will be mud slides, and food prices will be going much higher.  Pray for rain.

    Greg; this is a great site with very intelligent commenters.

    ERIC HOLDER, good riddance, but I hear al ‘sticky fingers’ sharpton is going to help find a new AG.

    Here is good news from Egon von Greyerz;

    Greyerz: “Eric, this year we have been talking about the autumn being a critical time in terms of being an inflection point for the world economy and global markets. In every single area of the world there are problems. Japan alone has enough debt and deficits that that when it implodes it should create a worldwide depression. And China, the former growth engine of the world, is strugglin
    “It’s important to look at the consumption of commodities in China. Right now they are declining rapidly. Then we have the shadow banking system in China which is in a massive bubble. In Europe, only one major economy, which is Germany, has kept the eurozone alive. But German growth has now come to a halt.

    And as we’ve discussed many times, Spain, Italy, Greece, and Portugal will not survive in their present construct. And in spite of that these countries can borrow money at ridiculously low rates, as if there was no risk at all. The markets don’t even understand what risk means today.

    In the U.K. we have seen a slight improvement but it’s all debt and deficit based so it’s not sustainable. And France will be the economy that tips Europe over the precipice. Both politically and economically France is now on the brink. Hollande is disliked by 86 percent of the people. And French workers will not accept austerity. We recently saw French farmers setting fire to a French tax office. Add to that a European banking system which is massively leveraged and full of debt and a great deal of that debt will never be repaid. So in my view the European banking system will not survive.

    the rest is all about gold and silver….

    Several years ago, I started to watch this site and have enjoyed it ever since. One of my first comments,was the recounting of a conversation by a group of retires at our local restaurant. Many Saturdays have come and gone and the conversation that are still filling this coffee house, are nothing less then chilling.
    There is no longer any respect for this President and so many of our elected officials. They see a total lack of respect for our God, Country and our Constitution and for our way of life in America.
    Porous borders are allowing illegal aliens and terrorist into our country. There is “No” budget,continue record spending with no cutting back. What is it now $17-$18 Trillion?? The American dollar about to implode. Loss of good paying jobs.And administration that is willing to change this Republic, by Executive order’s.
    Some at the table said that this administration was more corrupt then the Nixon administration. We are involving our soldiers in far to many wars, that frankly we do not need to be involved in. We no longer want to take care of our veterans! Or our seniors! One lady, mentioned the new born babies that are being murdered! What about them,she said!
    Our country is being lead by this president to become a Socialist country. Housing prices are up,food and gas prices up,too. And then there’s Obama care being rammed down our throats and the spying of “We the people”. Someone mentioned the book 1984!
    At this point, my food that I ordered was cold and I’m sipping luke warm coffee. In summary, it was the Vietnam Veteran, the fellow at the end of the table wearing the his camo jacket from the Vietnam war, he felt that those in public office have betrayed the citizens of this country the most and that the radical’s from the 60’s were now running the show. The lost of so many of his friends in all of those senseless wars bothered him the most. He felt that the rug had been pulled from under our feet. He feels that the politicians who swear an oath to Protect and Defend the Constitution, don’t give a dam about America anymore! They are only out for them selves.
    As I overheard this conversation at the table, I wondered how many more July 4th’s we would be celebrating as a Free nation? A land of Liberty?
    That is what I overheard at breakfast one Saturday morning. Many are no longer coming to breakfast at the local dinner. Some have died and some can not afford being retired. They have to watch their pennies!
    Some are sadden that this great nation is being fundamentally changed without anyone standing up to fight for this last “bastion of freedom”, as one of the customers at the table in the back room stated so patriotically. God bless them and this country. All that this group of seniors had built and fought for all of their lives, was being cleared away,the same way that the bus boy was clearing the dirty dishes away and empty coffee cups.God bless us,God help us and prepare for what’s to come.This is what I have to report to you and your listeners Greg.Indeed Greg, “these are times that try men’s soles”. SP

    • Chip

      SP, i enjoyed your post, it is great to hear what others around the country are thinking. i especially enjoy hearing from seniors as they’ve seen and experienced a lot…

      • Southern Patriot

        Thanks for the feed back and kudos. This is like a nite mare and you can’t wake up. An old friend of mine thinks that there are no such things as conspiracies. I whole hardheartedly disagree. The rich and powerful are in control of the steering wheel of the country and the world. When one man such as George S. can bring down the Sterling pound of the British empire,were all in trouble. It would be nice if we could have another George Washington who was willing to stand and defend this nation. We need to arrest the traitors to this country and put America back on a Constitutional based heading. Have a great day.SP

  6. robert heartland

    These beheadings. I’m beginning to believe that the shadow government is behind them because it has been the catalyst for changing public opinion for going back to war in the middle east! Think about it! The agenda has been and continues to be Syria and it’s takeover at all costs. Our government is now bombing the daylights out of Syria and the congress and the senate aren’t saying jack! We have a resident in the white house that talks cryptically about Russia being the enemy along with Isis before the UN and Lavrov picked up on this right away! The resident in the whitehouse is sounding more insane and giving more threats towards Russia all the time. Putin would have done better to have allowed this resident to attack Syria the last time and not have given him an out. Just look at what thanks this resident is showing for this act of friendship! Don’t help this resident in the whitehouse ever again! That’s the lesson here! We should be kicking this resident right down the whitehouse stairs and across the whitehouse lawn and into the street where he belongs! What a loser! What a poser! He is!

  7. Silence is Golden

    Greg,
    Great wrap for the week. I just keep shaking my head in disbelief….fools & damn fools!!!
    Its all coming apart at the seams. Someone needs to stop these maniacs (Politicians) for the damage they cause to the human race.

    Speaking of damage… some interesting developments may see some fireworks in the PM market sooner rather than later.
    Andrew Maguire (London Metals Trader) did some critical work last year (August) in the JPM whistle-blower case which proved (hard evidence and testimony) that the Bank was manipulating Au/Ag markets. All of which was provided to CFTC only to force the immediate closure of the then running (5yr) silver manipulation investigation.
    Cut a long story short, the matter was pursued further, once CFTC closed the investigation, by seeking to have the story written up by a well respected NY financial journalist (William Cohan)….. who was ready to publish it….when suddenly it got withheld. Now over a year….and still NOTHING.
    This is now about to go viral thanks to efforts of members of GATA (David Morgan, Andy Hoffman and Chris Duane are included).
    Interestingly (not unlike the Attorney General Holder’s recent resignation) the then Chief Investigative Officer of the CFTC (Meister) suddenly resigned (August 2013).

    Andrew’s story needs to be aired again.
    Kindly seek to get him on your show and help him bring about justice and to expose these criminals for who and what they are.
    Its going to be the biggest news when it hits the mainstream and it will blow the whole suppression game to smithereens.

    Go here to see what Andrew said last year…..

    Greg;
    I SURE do like PCR, he tells it like it is. A patriot indeed!!

    excerpt;
    The entire world knows that Washington overthrew the elected Ukrainian government, that Washington refuses to release its satellite photos of the destruction of the Malaysian airliner, that Ukraine refuses to release its air traffic control instructions to the airliner, that Washington has prevented a real investigation of the airliner’s destruction, that European experts on the scene have testified that both sides of the airliner’s cockpit demonstrate machine gun fire, an indication that the airliner was shot down by the Ukrainian jets that were following it. Indeed, there has been no explanation why Ukrainian jets were close on the heels of an airliner directed by Ukrainian air traffic control.

    The entire world knows that if Russia had territorial ambitions, when the Russian military defeated the American trained and supplied Georgian army that attacked South Ossetia, Russia would have kept Georgia and reincorporated it within Russia where it resided for centuries.

    Notice that it is not aggression when Washington bombs and invades seven countries in 13 years without a declaration of war. Aggression occurs when Russia accepts the petition of Crimeans who voted 97 percent in favor of reuniting with Russia where Crimea resided for centuries before Khrushchev attached it to the Soviet Socialist Republic of Ukraine in 1954 when Ukraine and Russia were part of the same country.

    And the entire world knows that, as the separatist leader of the Donetsk Republic said, “If Russian military units were fighting with us, the news would not be the fall of Mariupol but the fall of Kiev and Lviv.”

    Which is “the cancer of violent extremism”–ISIS which cut off the heads of four journalists, or Washington which has bombed seven countries in the 21st century murdering hundreds of thousands of civilians and displacing millions?

    Thanks for another great update
    After being rebuffed last year over wanting to bomb Syria you can tell the saudi’s kept on the pressure for US military action against Syria ….and ….poof ISIS appears providing new justification to attack Syria without any congressional authorization.

    All this works to divert attention from Obamacare failures (remember that?) going into the November elections.

  13. art barnes

    Greg, are we leaving Afghanistan as planned by Obama’s time table or is will that be on hold due to ISIS. My prediction if we leave Afghanistan ISIS or one of their splinter groups will take over there like Iraq & Syria. On another note Obama’s religion of peace has put egg on his face with this latest bombing campaign. Obama Nobel Peace Prize is now tarnished a bit don’t you think? Leading a bombing campaign on brother Islam won’t turn out pretty & he knows it. This will create more hostilities & worldwide terror, but Obama created it by his denial of reality of the current Islamic radical movement & its millions upon millions of soft Muslim supporters; appeasement has never worked in history & today is no exception & Obama’s half measures won’t fix it either it is just a way to help with the coming elections and get him out of office and let the next president deal with the threat. Further, just wait and see what Afghanistan will look like when the last troops leave; another ISIS country? The reality is that the Muslim Religion is at war once again with the world for domination & control of its practices, either realize it & deal with it or suffer the consequences once again, its as simple as that. Prediction: because the West is full of political correctness its loses to the Religion of Peace one bombing at a time.

    Great wrap up Greg. Have a good weekend. I like your get-away, looks like a good place to be…

    Greg we are basically fighting a war on two fronts. Just recently Blackwater/xe/ Acadomi mercenaries were captured in Ukraine. That tells me that for all intensive purposes NATO is dead. In fact Franco Germans have joined the fight with Russia against the U.S. proxy government in Kiev.

    It is becoming more apparent everyday that the western Banking cabal is willing to collapse the EU in an effort to safe itself, so I fully expect the EU to lift sanctions on Russia before winter. This of course does not address the 1000 pound dragon (China) that is poised to move in when the time is right.

    Hi Greg,
    I phoned the Speaker of the House this morning to request that they stop the Syrian bombing campaign. I also phoned the Nobel organization and wrote this email to them:
    Gentlemen,
    Due to numerous actions that are not acceptable from one who has been honored with a Nobel Peace prize, and especially due to the current bombing campaign in Syria, please due your best to revoke the Peace prize that you have awarded Mr. Obama.

    By him receiving such an honor and then consistently exhibiting contradictory behavior, your reputation and the other prize recipients are reduced in stature. If this continues, your Nobel Peace prize will be meaningless.

    Greg, great summation of the weeks activities. The question I have is don’t you think that when Oct 22nd comes and Eric the Great is not forthcoming with the documents documents to the court on Fast and Furious, their is going to be a substantial uproar by the Republicans against the illegal dealings of the Justice Dept and Eric. If their is no reaction by the Republicans I think it is safe to say that they are in league with the Dems and wish to suppress the story.

    Regarding the resignation of Holder, time will tell as to where he will show up next and whether that will provide any clues as to why he is leaving now. As for his replacement, this is whom immediately came to mind although I haven’t seen anything recently. Could it be someone whom Obama was praising a couple of years ago, Kamala Harris, current Attorney General of California? It would be another historic moment, right? Just think, the first African American WOMAN as the new Attorney General (and judging from her bio on Wikipedia, she appears to more than adequately fill the radical shoes)!

    • RTW

      If you wonder where Holder will show up next, you only have to think like Stephen King. Try to imagine where Holder could possibly do the most damage to the country, aside from his current accomplishments, that is and there you’ll have it. You know that’s going to happen. These guys don’t fall off the wire without a safety net below them. There are no such things as coincidences with these people, everything is calculated and well planned out. Look back at the great city of Chicago (sarcasm implied) when Daley suddenly decided to retire and the Rahmfather also decided, at that moment, that he should evacuate the WH. Low and behold, he is anointed as the mayor of Chicago even though he had no residence in the city. Miraculously, his wife had left her wedding dress in the attic of their former home, when they moved and that was enough, in the eyes of the election judges, to qualify as his home. You can’t make this stuff up. The election was a no brainer and the rest is history, as they say. He did not leave his job in the WH to TRY and be mayor of Chicago, it was guaranteed. Holder didn’t abruptly leave because he was worried what the Republicans were going to do to him. They haven’t laid a glove on him thus far. No, there is something more important in the offing. As far as Kamala goes, lets not forget to add being the Best Looking Attorney General to her bio, according to our CIC. So, we could also have another historic moment with the First Best Looking African American Woman as US Attorney General. It also doesn’t hurt that she’s an extreme liberal. No wonder why Americans are addicted to Reality TV.

    Greg:
    First of all, let’s just say good riddance to Eric Holder. He has accomplished what no other AG has done and that is to bring the office of the US Attorney General to a new low. One is hard pressed to recall any positive accomplishments, of any substance, that he can lay claim to. But hey, he has received rave reviews from
    The reverend Al. That has to be worth something. Al Sharpton has been in communications with the WH to ensure Eric’s successor is just as capable. We can always count on Reverend Al to look out for the interests of the entire country. Our only hope is, that because Holder is obviously “taking one for the team”, he isn’t rewarded with a black robe and a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court sometime in the near future. Because Washington does work in mysterious ways.

    If it takes Russia playing offense against American sanctions to wake up the world then go all out. I don’t remember the US being sanctioned for the 100+ wars they are/have started lately. That we are even discussing this tells you how slanted the MSM is. Are we losing perspective here people ? Can you imagine if China/Russia overthrew the Mexican Government with the intent to destabilize the US and install some strategically placed missiles ? Can you ? I think this country is so retarded and gone that you really can’t understand.

    great update greg. you always cover the spectrum. enjoy to see the farm report too. it is important. too bad gmo.
    we the people should be up in arms with eric holder, irs , our govrnment and the msm. i feel that the political crimes and frauds etc. are now being conducted right before our very eyes, out in the open all but shoved in our faces. virtually no consequinces.
    it almost feels like we purposely pissed off the saudi’s but hey they can blame us because we did’nt want another war. we are told one thing but it always comes down to oil, finance, petro dollar, etc. but never democracy or weapons of mass destruction. funny how you now only here isis. is this our new and improved biggest threat?

    The USA stabbed Saudi in the back by refusing to get involved in their religious war against hisbola , Iran and Syria , Saudi can’t be trusted ,after all 9 /11 was carried out by Saudis . IMHO Saudi is attempting to play the USA off against Russia , Russian Orthodox against western Christianity and Islam wins !
    The long campaign is designed by Saudi to grind down the west in every way , from bankrupting the west to destroying the will to fight of its population , its costing Saudi a few billion fiat paper dollars, and the lives of thousands of jihadists in a overpopulated region , no real cost to Saudi ,with the positive outcome of destruction of the radical moslems that are a threat to Saudi royal family , Islam is the winner !……………….. Saudi Islam .

    The last real drought in the SW lasted 85 years. There have been longer. That was around 800 years ago. That was when the Cliff Dwellers and others left that part of the country. Dancing Dust Devils! What a thought! Fiddlin

      Forgot the Dust Bowl of the 1920’s and 30’s? That was a 20 year drought. Conditions are the same now in the pan handle. I guess we’ll see if their changes in agriculture brought about the change of if the cycle just moved on.

      When there is a dust bowl in the southwest, the northeast gets floods!

    Invasion, 2015.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0zRD-Ulv2s

    A very interesting conversation on America from a Russian point of view. The main speaker is a former soldier from the Russo/Afghani war and currently a representative in the Duma, or Russian parliament. It is 2 hours long, but held my interest to the very end, good as a movie without the love scene. I like to delve into topics and discussions that are not always U.S. filtered. My Yugo grandfather always read a foreign paper, stating we were as much in the dark about the world as any Soviet citizen.

    The discussion gives some insight into the fatalistic Slav mindset ingrained in a people who expect to be overrun time and again. Just like us, however, it sounds as though the general population of Russia is asleep or unwilling to forego comforts in order to once again deal with the invaders. This speaker from the Duma outlines the realities and stakes involved, either fight or cease to be.

    I enjoyed watching 3 informed citizens holding a 2-hour long conversation that was not filled with P.C. or platitudes. It was very interesting to hear how they view the U.S. (the invaders), discussing the latest blitzkrieg (during the Olympics) and the probable end game.

    I agree with speaker Fedorov. The U.S. manufactured the problem and will not let it rest. The reasons our population are given for so much of the world’s turmoil are so removed from the truth.

    I am not a Russian cheerleader. Met a Czech woman in a local Joann store a few years back. While we leafed through the pattern books, she spent 3-4 hours discussing her earlier life as a victim of the Germans and Russians. Her summation: “Between the Germans and Russians, I could not tell you who was the bigger SOB.” To take her remark a little further though, we are seen as the world’s SOB at the moment. We have many Bosnians living in AZ. The Wal-Mart in Scottsdale I call Little Bosnia, so many workers from that area. We have become a repository for all the nations whose lives our politicians have destroyed. Where is OUR end game?

    Greg,
    You are right to say that the water situation in California remains quite serious. This year we averted a major catastrophe in crop production only because farmers pumped water like crazy from underground aquifers to make up for surface water shortfalls from all those reservoirs that are usually filled by melting snow in the Sierras.
    The media and legislators over here are ecstatic that Gov. Brown recently signed the first groundwater legislation in California’s history. Now farmers can expect new water taxes and severe rationing of groundwater. My county is considering a moratorium on the drilling of new wells. And the environmentalists continue to halt any meaningful new water storage construction in the state.
    I think it may be next year’s crop and irrigation season that begins California’s first true crop failure. Then again we may get lucky and buy another year of time, just like our economy and currency is doing at the moment.

    I’m a big fan of Dr. Willie but the very recent US joint coalition with the Saudi in attacks on Syrian soil do not make sense if the Saudi have truly abandoned their relationship to the USD.

    Does Dr. Willie have an explanation for this?

    Pessimist;
    I dont know what the jackass thinks on this, but I will venture a guess;
    If S.A. can get LNG from Qatar, through S.A. desert, up to iraq, into syria, they will attach to any govmnt i guess.
    the Jackass said to me in 2 emails, “Qatar will send LNG through Iran up to syria” Remember China has their aircraft carrier parked in Iran’s port across from baharaine/qatar area, which is on SA’s east coast. Looks like a 100 km from qatar to Iranian coast.

    Greg, probably too late for you to post but I had to comment on your crop report. So Americans farmers are dancing in their GMO Roundup soaked farm fields are they? Great to hear it, hope they have good health insurance if they are eating their own product! Wouldn’t surprise me if the smart ones have set aside and acre or so to grow so natural food for their families and sell the rest of the crop to their American cousins.

      It’s field corn, the majority of which is fed to livestock. We eat sweet corn and I’ve yet to see sweet corn fields with any corporate seed signs. Reporting live from the heartland of Ohio.

    Hatred is a learned trait. We all have 46 chromosomes. We all came from the original parents, Adam and Eve. Thus, we are all related. But wars continue….

    • woody188

      Hatred might be learned, but violence comes quite naturally. Babies are like feral humans. They hit, bite, scratch. They have to be taught to be civilized to one another.

    Greg,
    It’s not about GMO, it’s about the pesticide use that the GMO use facilitates. I respect your insight and watch every show, but please consider giving some attention to how large scale farming is ruining our soil, and poisoning the food supply. Your grasp of these issues falls short in comparison to your great strengths in other areas.

    • Greg Hunter

      Ken,
      Lots of pesticides were used before the days of GMO but your points are well made and well taken.

    I think Saudi Arabia is just playing both sides. Conversing with China and Russia ( i.e. threating to jump ship) to get what they want from the US.

  53. Jeff

    That doesn’t mean the talks are meaningless as they will jump ship when it’s to their advantage. Their actions will coincide with everything else we’ve been discussing. When time is up everybody jumps the ship and everyman for himself…….. What many refer to as a SHTF moment.

    Greg;
    I just spent a couple of days riding horses with the kids and grand kids in what was once Apache Country. My conclusion besides a fantastic feeling just doing it, I know why they fought so hard to keep it. Totally beautiful! Most folks do not know it but that is also “Billy The Kid Country ” in southern New Mexico high country. We won’t give it up easy either! I have to admit, I am rethinking GMO. How bad is it really? We keep eating “worse” and getting worse health care but we are still living longer. There is a lot of BS in both directions to sift through.
    Also most of the drought here has been checked if not broken. It is always a dry country. Mostly cattle and hay are raised in New Mexico. Add a few sheep. We will starve without diesel trucks from GMO country and California. 400 years ago the Spanish arrived and upset the balance. Thousands of people died of starvation and change was small until Interstate Highways and trucks arrived to lurch the state into the 1960’s. One opinion! Hope the news stays dull another week!

    Good morning,
    there are happening a lot of suiped things in the world (ISIS, Ebola, etc., etc.). It is, if you do not understand what is going on, not normal anymore. One important thing also happening, which nearly nobody has in mind. The freemsons try to destroy since over 400 years to distroy the old chatholic latin mass. Pope Franziskus try to eliminate this mass too. Why are the freemasons so interested in destroying the old mass? Normaly the most people belive, it ist not an important thing. But it should be important otherwise the freemasons are very stupid to make a lot of work with that latin mass. So I bought a Roman Catholic Daily Missal /german a few month ago and went to a church, where they celebrate this mass. If you go only once to vistit this mass, you will konw, why satan and his “workers” try to eliminate this mass.

    http://birettabooks.com/go/webstore/product/roman_catholic_daily_missal_leather_cover/
    If the anti-christ will come one day, you realy need this book. I can explain why, but it will take too much space here. Very short: this mass is the only way, of making a “sin offering” and this is what Jesus Christ want to have. The thing with the ” the Lord’s Supper” is completly nonsens, if you understand the bible. The new catholic mass is only a supper not a offering!
    But it takes me nearly 1,5 years to figure this out.
    So search in the internet you can find it out and go only once in this old mess, then you know it.

    Hey Greg,

    When are you going to get Jim Willie, Karen Hudes, Dmitry Orlov, and Jim Rickards back? I enjoy your program and thanks for your time.
