WNW 163: No Ebola Travel Ban, Terror in Canada and NYC, Financial War

WNW 163: No Ebola Travel Ban, Terror in Canada and NYC, Financial WarBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Another week, another Ebola infection.  This time, in crowded New York City.  This after the government declared “U.S. Ramps up Fight on Ebola.”  This time, a young American doctor who returned after treating Ebola victims in West Africa.  I cannot believe we do not have a travel ban and/or mandatory quarantine and testing for everyone coming from West Africa.  It seems too stupid to be stupid to “keep track” of people when we could just stop people from coming here, and we would not have to “keep track” of them.  We are getting hundreds of folks from West Africa coming in every month.  Do you feel comfortable with the government keeping track of anything, let alone potentially sick people that could cause a deadly outbreak?  It’s almost as if they are inviting a pandemic to America.  Oh, and by the way, the new Ebola Czar, Ron Klain, reportedly said his biggest fear for the world is “how to deal with the continually growing population.”  Yes, that’s right.  The new Ebola Czar’s biggest concern is over-population.  That should make you feel all warm and fuzzy.

Terror, terror everywhere in North America.  The only difference is that, in Canada, they call it Islamic terror.  In the U.S., they call it work place violence.  You heard about the guy who took an ax to some New York City cops.  They shot the ax attacker dead, but not before he hurt some police.  This week, one of the editorial pages in USA Today talked about Christian extremists, but no one mentions Islamic extremists.  You don’t hear Christian extremists hacking police up with an ax.  It is simply outrageous not to call it what it really is, and I think more terror is on the way.  We are at war with extremists in the Islamic world.  That is clear.

Good news at the gas pump as prices are going down.  How long is that going to last?  Saudi Arabia has finally cut production to prop up oil prices.  It’s not all good news as shale oil needs a price of $85 a barrel to turn a profit.  That business could come crashing down as it is highly leveraged.  Also, it’s is not all supply and demand causing the prices of crude oil to fall.  It is financial war by the U.S. and the West to punish Russia over Ukraine.  The lower price is hurting Russia because Russia gets half its operating revenue from energy sales.  Russia is not going to sit idly by and be attacked. For example, Russia wants the EU to guarantee it will pay Ukraine’s natural gas bill this winter, and the EU is balking.  Russia will cut natural gas supplies if it is not paid, and that is only the beginning of this financial war.  Nobody is backing off from the sanctions, and this situation is only going to get worse this winter.

Finally, Fed Head Janet Yellen says “Inequality is worsening.”   She talked about this late last week, and I cannot believe she can say this with a straight face.  At one point last year, the Fed was printing and handing out $45 billion a month.  Much of that went to the bankers to buy their toxic mortgage-backed securities.  You print trillions of dollars to bail out your banking buddies and hedge funds, and you have the gall to stand up and complain of economic inequality?  That is rich.

    Greg,

    A great wrap up. It keep seeing this Russian situation in a new dimension. I remeber growing up and the US and the USSR/Russia had there differences. They would posture, thump chests, yell a little but it always seemed that the USSR would always be the first to blink. And then in a few days it was over. ( again I spent over half my life in the shadow of the cold war).

    These “confrontations” never lasted long. But this time its so different. Russia is not backing down NOT AT ALL. They are not afraid at all. I really believe they know something or have a few aces up their sleve.

    When I get into discussions and I hear others say Putin is crazy mad man etc. He is causing all these problems…I always answer “if this is so why is he playing us so easily”

    No one can or does ever answer me!

    Greg … West Africans were grateful to hear of President Obama’s pledge to send the U.S. military to fight the Ebola outbreak … the U.S. military to fight Ebola??? … what are Marines going to do? … shoot everyone with Ebola symptoms??? … ofcourse with over population being the major problem in the world I guess they figure shooting all the people with Ebola symptoms in West Africa will help a little … but it seems what they actually want (to really help reduce the population ) is for a lot more people in the U.S. to get infected (so no travel ban) … Hum?? is this why Homeland Security recently purchased billions of rounds of hollow point ammunition??

    A Home Work Asignment for our new Ebola Czar … If an express train with 10 people in the car with an infected Ebola patient and his girlfriend leaves Grand Central Station heading south to a bowling ally at 8AM at 60 mph and another express train with 12 people in the car leaves Union Station heading north with the Ebola patients girlfriend aboard at 9:30AM at 75 mph, how long will it take until all 8 million people in New York City get infected with Ebola?
    If our Ebola Czar can’t kept track of and calculate how many infectious interactions are taking place and can’t answer the above question … he should simply put an immediate ban on all flights that carry people who have recently been in Ebola areas of West Africa.

    The two big conspiracy theories to be exaggerated that cover up the truth are the 911 WTC Attack and the Kennedy Assassination. With the former, people take it to the extreme and claim there was not even an attack by terrorists and the whole thing was made up. Sorry, there was an attack and the government knew it was coming and allowed it to for three purposes

    (1) eliminate the evidence on many cases in WTC7 including all my evidence that documented EVERY market manipulation up to 1999 by the investment banks et al for which they are getting fined all the time today
    (2) wipe out the evidence that would have exposed the missing $2 trillion in the Pentagon budget, and
    (3) generate more power for government by allowing Americans to be victims as originally proposed in Operation Northwoods.

    all i heard you say over and over which each story is, we’ve been hi jacked by a group and they are out to destroy or finish us off.
    i read an article from a man who ran the numbers and explained a lot on the idea of over population. in a nut shell it takes care of itself. right now, the baby boomers are going quite quickly and is excelerating. the younger generation is waiting to even get married let alone have children. economy/jobs/college debt. poor, uneducated and diseased (because of uneducated) countries keep having large families. is this not what we did to keep population going? put in war and we have a population problem about to start. they, whoever you want to call them wants to knock us back by 90%. is this a long term plan to try and take total control?
    how about the msm and our gov’t. if i did’nt know any better they all have a gun pointed to their heads that they will do as their told. a good example is there is no good investigation reporting going on in the msm. ( thank you greg for what you do and they’re others). it starts with the liberals. they have started with your’e tv, then school and college.
    then you have the speech of eisenhower, who warned us about the millitary complex.
    this is just a few ideas that make up one gigantic web of things that are going on. it seems like i am traviling down the rabbit hole. we need a thousand or more of you to wake us up.
    lindsey williams says there is an oil reserve off the coast of alaska all ready to go that would supply the world for many years. he has pictures. yet it sits idle. matter of fact i read an article a few years ago that the largest oil tanker was heading that way.

    • Desert Rose

      Alaska was leased to the US by Russia, and the lease is now being evaluated.
      Seward’s Folly, remember? That was when the lease of Alaska looked like a bad idea.

  9. Collateral Damage

    My thoughts for the day…

    Ok, so the concept of ‘Fear Not’ really resonated with me when you first started using it. However, with Ebola, we have entered a new phase in the 9th inning of this ballgame. Most of the time when Greg said ‘Fear Not’ it seemed mildly comforting, but this week it seems downright incongruous. I have way too many books on my shelf that chronicle the 19teens influenza epidemics and have read way too many books on cholera and bio-warfare to not be scared to the tips of my toes. Icing on the cake was the new Ebola Czar’s comment on world population being a problem. I guess that all problems have solutions don’t they? Too bad there is collateral damage from solutions. Collateral damage and very distinct winners and losers. But I do ‘fear not’ that there are sufficient quarantine positions for some uber-wealthy amongst our ranks.

    Another thought that goes through my head… Could ebola and the boogieman of an evil Russia (when they retaliate) be the diversions that the coming economic collapse is blamed on? Me thinks I smell a rat (or was it something Rotten in Denmark?).

    Further, in the words of Simon and Garfunkel, The Boxer…

    “I am just a poor boy
    Thought my story’s seldom told,
    I have squandered my resistance for a pocket full of mumbles such are promises.
    All lies in jest,
    STILL A MAN HEARS WHAT HE WANTS TO HEAR AND DISREGARDS THE REST.” Leave your families and friends alone. Let them live out their last few days in blissful ignorance. Let’s face it, those of us who prepare may not really be much better off – viruses are indiscriminate killers without successful isolation that our ‘fearless leaders’ are so ‘dead-set’ on not implementing. (Wow – that was harsh.)

    And my final thought for the day.
    “Swing low, sweet chariot, coming for to carry me home.” We have been living off the fat of the land for far to long.

    Payback is a B##ch.

    My Best Regards go out to all, faithful Watchdog Listeners and newcomers alike.

    Brace yourself, it is going to be a bumpy ride.

    And remember that if we get hit with it (either economically or with the Ebola), it really wasn’t anything personal, we were all just collateral damage.

  10. Nick

    New York cops are at war with everyone.

    • Greg Hunter

      Nick,
      I think we can all agree that the cops do not deserve to be hit in the head with an ax!

          NC,
          The cops in this case were not at a check point. This was an Islamic radical terror attack. The attacker blind sided them.
          Greg

          • Trevor

            If a person were to spend enough time and intelligence they could come up with an equation for blow back. Stupid things done in other countries is proportional to random terrorist actions committed at home. As of right now, America is playing out the story of the king who couldn’t get rid of his mice, so he got a cat, then something to get rid of the cat, and on and on. In the current situation where we’re at, America created the original mice (radical Taliban) and ended up with the biggest animal so far, the Elephant ( the Iraqi army that fled) because it was afraid of the mice (original Taliban concept now re-conceptualized as IS) So to get rid of the mice once again, the US is looking to give away weapons to anyone with a pulse who will point the guns at IS, but that’s not the real motive, because the real and original plan was to destroy Syria and take Iraq form the Shia allied with Iran. The US has no intention of destroying IS until Syria is burnt to the ground. IS is America’s secret ally. Stand back and look at America from independent perspective what you’ll see is terrifying madness, literally. A psychopathic system drowning. All or nothing, if can’t survive it will destroy the world in the process. I never thought I would say this, but Russia and China might be the worlds last hope.

      • Dan

        Couldn’t agree more Greg. How can any reasonable person think that a cop deserves to be hit with an ax?!? Sickos!

    Manipulating the gas prices- Not only do they get to punish Iran, Russia and Venezuela, this is the only time politicians give any care about the voters pocket books.

    Gas prices always seem to mysteriously go down right before elections, odd isn’t it. Throwing some scraps to us little people.

    ……and….. M Armstrong

    World War II created the vast military-complex, Once that was created, they used the threat of Communism to expand. Indeed, that was the battle cry for both the Korean and Vietnam Wars. The discovery of Eisenhower’s notes on his famous Farewell Speech of January 17, 1961, which were discover only in 2011, illustrate that this was in the draft stage for years. Eisenhower was always talking about the Cold War and the threat it was transforming American “garrison state.” Eisenhower was a general and the military thought they had put their man in office and he would give them the golden keys to the nation’s value. The military wanted a lot more than he was willing to give them. Most people have no idea that Eisenhower stood as a check against the military that he saw had grown 10 fold from before the war and was consuming the nation’s resources. The military was extremely frustrated Eisenhower and his farewell address was critical for he was attempting to pass on a warning. This battle between the ever-increasing demands from the military is what he warned about and I believe Kennedy understood and was eventually assassinated for. Yes there was Lee Harvey Oswald who was never put on trial and was assassinated by Jack Ruby who dies in prison. If there had been a trial, it may have proven there were other shooters and that he was a unknowing participant is a grander conspiracy. This same pattern appears to have been used with 911. Yes there were “terrorists” but they too were being used for a greater purpose – to expand the military complex once again.

    Good morning Greg, I TY for your program/site.

    Workplace violence vs jihad?
    What would they call a civil war, ‘Mass Social differences’ ?
    How about a revolution? Perhaps that would be termed, ‘ A Societal Disagreement’?
    I spose that the obaman’s economic/foreign policy/ebola/and war on radicle islam failures could be called, ‘Constructive Fraud’ ?
    Bank robbery is an ‘Undocumented withdraw’, on and on and on with these ‘pc minded idiots!
    I suspect that things are going to degrade now at a much faster pace until the other shoe drops, then it’s ‘Katy bar the door’.

    You hit it out of the park. I have been screaming from the roof tops since 1981 about the
    way our government has been handling all matters of our way of life. Kinda nice to know
    that there are other folks out there that see what I was seeing. God bless and keep your ammo dry 🙂

  18. art barnes

    Greg, many virus mutate, changing to an “airborne” delivery virus. I believe the Government may be preparing for that contingency. If Ebola become airborne you will see a travel band but the question then will it be too late. I’m in favor of a travel ban until a vaccine has been developed, but it won’t matter with the Obola Administration, they will ban travel to Russia first, just wait and see. As to oil, the elite has made a fortune lately sell crude short, they now will go long and double down, look for the price to go to $90 or more quickly. The insiders knew exactly the price number when the Saudi’s would cut production, its an insiders game as all the markets are now. The little guy better stay away from the futures market and prepare for not becoming the expendable collateral damage that the elite will sacrifice when the SHTF.

    Greg, you nailed it big time in your weekly wrap up. America is losing the economic war. That much is clear now, apart from all the other ridiculous diversionary BS news the cabal news agency is pumping out.

    It appears that China will be opening an RMB hub in Canada in November, while agreements are being finalized with France and Germany in the coming weeks.
    http://www.globalcapital.com/article/nj7h12rtq2q3/france-luxembourg-eyeing-up-rmb-bonds-after-uks-trailblazer

    This is accelerating at breakneck speed folks. And, like Greg said when the shoe drops, it will happen so fast, you won’t be able to catch your breath. Even Stevie Wonder can see this coming.

  20. Rick

    When you really look behind the curtain and at the “cabal” orchestrating the Ponzi scheme…it makes one wonder why they make the decisions they do. Why would they print money and give it to the banksters? Why would they open borders up and allow a free for all influx with no safeguards? Why would they allow flights in and out of the Ebola plagued countries in Africa?

    Well….one thing no one really likes talking about is the fact that many in high places are under the influence of Satan himself. You can dismiss it if you like, but Jesus said the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one”…. 1 John 5:19…
    and then this
    The Devil is a manslayer. “That one was a manslayer when he began,” said Jesus. (John 8:44) Beginning with his first act in turning Adam and Eve away from God, Satan has been a manslayer. He brought death upon the first human pair and their offspring. (Romans 5:12) It may be noted that this action can be attributed only to a person, not to a mere principle of evil.

    greg;

    When this writer was 3 years old, the Empire of Japan devastated Battleship Row of the U.S. Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor.

    Before I was 7, Gen. MacArthur was in an office in Tokyo overlooking the Imperial Palace, dictating to a shattered Japan.

    In 1956, President Eisenhower, impressed by the autobahn he had seen in Hitler’s Reich, ordered a U.S. Interstate Highway System constructed, tying America together, one of the great public works projects in all history.

    Within a decade, the system was on its way to completion.

    In 1961, John F. Kennedy said the United States, beaten into space by Nikita Khrushchev’s Soviet Union, would put a man on the moon and return him to earth within the decade.

    In July 1969, President Nixon, on the deck of the carrier Hornet, welcomed home Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins of Apollo 11.

    What ever became of that America? What ever became of that can-do nation? What has happened to us?

    This October saw the vaunted Center for Disease Control and Prevention fumbling over basic questions on how to protect Americans from an Ebola epidemic in three small countries of West Africa.

    In September, an intruder with a knife climbed the White House fence, trotted across the North lawn, walked through the unlocked front door of the president’s house, barreled over a female officer, and ran around the East Room before being tackled by a Secret Service agent going off duty. The president had just departed.

    Days earlier, an armed security guard in Atlanta with a violent criminal past was allowed by Secret Service to ride an elevator with Barack Obama.

    Last summer came reports that 60,000 children and young people from Central America had walked across the border into the United States, overwhelming our Border Patrol.

    Last spring, we learned that sick and suffering vets were deliberately made to wait months for appointments to see VA doctors, and dozens may have died during the wait.

    Earlier, the rollout of Obamacare, years in preparation, became a national joke and a metaphor for government incompetence.

    Under President Bush came Katrina, where 30,000 residents of New Orleans were stranded for days behind a pool of stagnant water after a hurricane. The city and state couldn’t handle it.

    Yet, during five days in 1940, 350,000 British troops, besieged at Dunkirk, were rescued from across the Channel by their countrymen in boats and yachts under the guns of the Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe.

    Such events have contributed to a collapse of confidence among Americans in the competency of their leaders and their government.

    Large majorities now believe America is heading downhill, that the future will not be as good as the past, that we are going in the wrong direction.

    Malaise pervades the republic.

    And there are larger reasons for these sentiments.

    I cannot comment on this because I am sure you don’t want to hear what I said when I saw this.

    Also, I got an email from Rep. Grayson. Here is part of what he says.

    “Let’s put this in perspective. We already ban visitors from other countries unless they prove that they have been vaccinated against whooping cough – a far less deadly disease than Ebola. We don’t just ban visitors with whooping cough; we ban visitors unless they prove that they cannot get whooping cough.

    Suspending tourism from these three countries wouldn’t prevent relief efforts. On the contrary, the more we spend here, the less we can spend there.

    More than 25 other countries have instituted such travel restrictions.”

    Love your 4 Horsemen, Greg!!!

    Jeremiah 15:3 = Ez 14:12-23 (Note: V 21) = Rev 6:1-8 (Note: V 8)

    Jer 15:3
    3“I will send “4” kinds of destroyers against them,” declares the Lord

    Ez 14:21

    21“For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: How much worse will it be when I send against Jerusalem my “4” DREADFUL JUDGEMENTS—SWORD and FAMINE and WILD BEASTS and PLAGUE—to kill its men and their animals!

    Rev 6:8

    8I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by SWORD, FAMINE and PLAGUE, and by the WILD BEASTs of the earth.

    The 4 Horsemen are the “4” Dreadful Judgements of G-d!

    1. Sword (Of the Lord: Natural Disasters)
    2. Famine (Self-Explanatory)
    3. Plague/Pestilence (Ebola, Swine Flu etc)
    4. Wild Beast (Al Queda, ISIS, Etc…)

    The reason they want to keep track of the Ebola patients is because that is what they know how to do, and it is an activity they feel comfortable with. Having to actually do what is necessary to prevent Ebola’s spread is full of doubts and requires very determined effort, and that is looked upon as stressful activity. One cause of this distorted behavior is the intentional dumbing down of American school students during the past several decades.

  27. Donna C

    Greg, if a physician (who should know better) returns to the states and totally disregards self-quarantine measures, how can anyone have confidence in an honor system? It’s all hooey for public consumption. The 5 airports designated to screen for Ebola mentioned by Obama were already the main drop off points. In other words, he revised nothing in regard to fine tuning procedures for our safety. Just the usual cynicism, feed us beans knowing full well that the average Jake would never catch on to the usual shell game he likes to play. Just like a conning carney, he creates a problem and then gives the illusion of coming to the rescue.

    A friend of mine was married to a county attorney who went to Washington on business, came home with a cut finger, wound up in the ICU — never to return home. He picked up an MRSA infection from who knows where, within weeks was deader than JFK.

    I was driving across Phoenix one balmy October night about 15 years back, running late to get to my job at a hospital. I was stopped at a red light at one point with my window down because it was such a pleasant night. I became aware that someone was very ill in the car next to me. Suddenly the passenger in that car emptied her lung out (yes, a woman) and spit out her window, hitting me right in the face. I screamed as though I had been shot, understanding full well that it amounted to the same thing. She apologized and the car went on its way.

    When I got to the hospital, I scrubbed my face with alcohol swabs and then went into work mode as my job is all about production with strict accuracy standards. I became very ill as the days passed, kept relapsing, and eventually drove myself across town to that hospital while I still had the strength to drive. Yes, I wound up hospitalized over this stranger, had endocarditis on top of everything else. I have no end of respect in regard to the capabilities of viruses.

    Our country is becoming one big Dr. Mengele experiment on the population. We are reintroducing diseases once eradicated, adding newer exotic nightmares to the mix.

    I made a smoothie one July evening, frozen blueberries and blackberries. Within 15 minutes, I had a crawly sensation in every muscle in my body as though insects were under my skin. Moments later, I was slathering the walls of my bathroom with explosive vomiting. It was 110 degrees outside. Turned my air conditioner off as I had a freezing sensation and the shakes. There were not enough blankets in the house to swaddle myself in. I shook till I thought my neck would snap. My fear of the ER was greater than my fear of poisoning. I stayed home and dug in for the next several days. Threw the smoothie maker away. Quit buying anything frozen that I could not boil or stir fry. That was my lesson in FDA safety.

    We are our own first and best line of defense. Bulk up on vitamins, green drinks, red drinks, vitamin C (5000 mg is my routine), etc. I also soap wash fruits and vegetables. Frankly, you cannot trust that a field worker did not wiz in the lettuce patch. Remember the deaths in Pittsburgh as a result of hepatitis traced to tainted green onions?

    Just like China is taking advantage of lower gold prices by buying all they can get, they are buying all the cheap oil they can get to fill their strategic reserves. There’s a line of oil tankers headed there way…….They also got great long term contracts with Russia because of the position Russia is in now…….. say what you will, they know how to get things done their way.

    • Paul from Indiana

      Jeff, yes, sir, you are correct; they stack the deck to make sure they get it “their way”, as the hamburger ad used to say. Meanwhile, we sit around arguing about propriety, so-called rights, so-called fairness, so-called diversity and who knows what else, chasing some kind of elusive consensus that can’t possibly exist once the flame under the melting pot has been extinguished, as it was in the ’60’s. The Chinese are not similarly burdened. Our form of government is not built for the modern problems and break-neck pace of modern times. Best always. PM

    Hi Greg,

    This source is still the best commentary about the Ukraine Crisis and Russia responses to USA and Europe available in the West. Stephen F. Cohen is without a doubt the best American Russian expert. Batchelor is no slouch either….

    My 2 cents on Russian resolve.

    I read somewhere this week a remark that went roughly: “Every now and then, someone forgets the lessons of history and tries to take Russia on, only to liter the snow banks with corpses.” A population forced into eating everything with 4 feet or wings is not a pushover. Yes, their ability to persevere has been watered down in the last generation or so. They tend to remember history though.

    Putin will not tolerate hoards of foreigners who speak every language but Russian within his borders, nor is there a welcome wagon and a grocery list of perks and privileges showered upon the invader. Something to be said for nationalism when you need to confront your enemies bent on conflict.

    I went for groceries a few nights back. I usually shop at 5 a.m. or so to avoid crowds and lurking diseases. I had several immediate impressions on setting foot in the store: I was a stranger, an outsider in my own country. Here I am exposing myself to people who are unscreened, no Ellis Island guidelines whatever. What happens when the government largesse runs out and we become a soup of competing cultures with little in common?

    Only 15 years back, these thoughts would have never been on my radar. Janet Napolitano carpet bagged her way to governor here in AZ and the place will never recover from the transition. The rubes here had to vote “for a woman.” She said all the usual lib crapola that appeals to the child in the voting adult. I would have never dreamed you could take a state down in so short a stretch of time. We have become a political/cultural outhouse.

    I am not that far off the boat myself but my grandparents came here to get away from “brotherly government.” My own mother’s first language was Croatian. No one in the neighborhood knew that. All things foreign were kept in the living room. My relatives were not park pigeons imposing their culture on others.

    The Russians sit back (for now) watching our own dictator decimate our culture. Time is on his side. An invaded country understands the necessity of putting your own people first. Even a country that is not above abusing its own people at times knows better than to tolerate abuse from without and within.

    • Desert Rose

      Putin is a chess master….the US “leaders” are losing right now, which I celebrate.

      Re immigrants, I live in a southwest state. My rural area was full of laborers here to do plaster, plumbing, run machinery, landscape, stucco and tile work. Our street is quiet now. There is NO WORK. They left. Rental prices are dropping here.

      When Obama talks of opening the borders, why bother? There is NO WORK in the US.

  32. Paul from Indiana

    I have said it many times before on this (and other) forum(s): one of the best propaganda tools, and a means of getting a vexing variable out of the equation, would be for the West to pay Ukraine’s energy debt and new bills going forward, chicken feed in the overall scheme of things. That accomplishes two things: it shuts Putin up on this issue/straw-man, which isn’t going to please some who profess admiration for this one-trick, warmed-over communist enforcer and self-styled hardass, and it forges, by default, commercial and economic ties between the West and Ukraine, an alleged goal of the West and Ukraine, and a supposed big factor in the Russian upset. As a bonus, we gain the humanitarian upper-hand of keeping people warm this winter. But watch us blow this opportunity, too… Best always. PM

  33. CrazyCanuck

    To Paul from Indiana:
    Yes, good one. It seems only right that America and fellow white hat European sycophants pay the gas bill. Obviously it is a no-brainer once you overthrow an elected government and install your puppet billionaire that you pay it’s debts. Then for sure you will be on the high road — even as you are busy building another military base and put ting missiles on that black hatted bad guy Putin’s border. Yup, demonize the guy running the country with the energy, America’s never done that before!

    • Paul from Indiana

      Mr. Canuck, I didn’t say demonize anybody. I said get the issue of who’s paying for gas off the table and thereby force discussion of the real issues at hand. The Ukrainians deserve heat; they are victims. I tire of this idea that Putin is some kind of virtuous example to the world. The original, elected government in Ukraine, the one before our alleged stooge was installed, as you and many claim, was the one seeking ties with the West. That’s what raised Putin’s ire and started the whole, current misadventure. As I have often stated on this forum, we should have offered NATO membership to Russia when the USSR dissolved. Best always. PM

      • CrazyCanuck

        Sir, I thinks you are mistaken. The elected head of state, while not very well liked and while like so many other bad politicians was milking his country. He was also watching his country swirl the economic toilet and thus had to decide whether to accept greater ties ( aka economic help ) from the west or the east. As a leader, he must have thought his citizens would be better off if he chose the EAST and Putin’s sweet deal on energy. The Empire was not pleased, and that was that. Enter Nuland to accelerate a new arrangement ( F*^% the EU remember? ) and away we go.

  34. Orion

    Right on target, Greg! Except for the military, is there anything the US governmment can do competently? People better not assume the government has Ebola under control. Obama appointed Ron Klain, a democrat startegist with no medical experience whatsover as the Ebola “czar” for goodness sake! Obama is treating this as if it were a PR or propaganda problem. Look, regardless of what political party is in power, no one should ever take the governments word for anything. Just ssk the people in New Orleasn who were told by the governemtn that the levees were safe. Don’t be lulled into a false sence of security by the “Polyannas” with the MSM either. Question everything, investigate and use your brains folks. If you want to trust in something, then trust in God. As for Janet Yellin, I believe the Fed governors know that things are going to collapse soon, so they “voted” her as the “sacrificial lamb” to be thrown to the slaughter. She certainly has the “deer in headlights” look down pat so she can go in front of Congress and look apalled. She is also dumb as a rock.

    Great wrap up Greg!

    I have to agreed with BOB: ” the younger generation is waiting to even get married let alone have children. economy/jobs/college debt. poor, uneducated and diseased (because of uneducated) countries keep having large families. is this not what we did to keep population going?”

    As a younger female I am so frustrated when my Grandparents ask my husband and I when we are having children since we are “so responsible and could make such great parents.” How do I explain to someone, who grew up in greatest era of the USA, that it is not a good time to be living in this country or this planet. I cannot justify bringing another human being into this world to live a future live of difficulty and likely pain and suffering from declining living conditions.

    Many of my peers do not have children and the ones who do are uneducated and very dependent on the taxes my family is forced to pay to support them. I know they do not understand that when they give birth to a child and “register it” they are actually giving up their rights to parent their child. They sign all the papers because that’s what everyone does and then the child becomes property (a ward) of the state….can anyone say Nanny State?

    Parents have been losing their rights for many years. You are forced to vaccinate them or they cannot go to public school. If you spank them it is child abuse and they can remove your child from your home. (Meanwhile, the state can collect thousands of dollars running them through foster care and drugging them without your parental consent) If your child develops a disease and you seek alternative therapy they can charge you with neglect and shove their conventional therapies down your throat.

    Tell me why would any younger American who has any critically thinking skills want to be a parent now?

    • Paul from Indiana

      Nichole, I understand your frustration, so I will offer a response, and this from a person who has been married to the same woman for 37 years and who has 5 grown, productive children: if the competent, talented, decent, intelligent people leave the child production and rearing to the largely incompetent, untalented, uncultured, and marginally intelligent, what becomes of the country? You are witnessing and living that challenge. If you truly believe what you say, you, and we, are already defeated. Please reconsider. Best always. PM

    Hi. Greg,

    What a great job you are doing ~ fearlessly ~ commenting on world events in a straightforward manner at a time when the MSM has abandoned any pretence of reporting the ‘truth’ or of asking searching questions of the powers that be.

    I gave up reading The Daily Mail the day they ran the front page headline, “Putin Killed My Son” – one day after the MH17 disaster. One day!!! Even though the most mundane air crashes take months of forensic examination to determine – in just one day The Daily Mail was certain of the cause and ready to apportion blame. No lover of Putin, by the way, just brassed off with 24/7 propaganda.

    Thanks again Greg.

    Thank you CrazyCanuck for setting the record straight about who’s really responsible for the created war in Ukraine. Like all the rest…..Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Syria and on and on. We are responsible for the spilled blood and misery thru out the world. Putin ? Give me a break and wake up people……….. Seems to me Russia is busy doing business and promoting commerce. What a real leader should be doing…… What do we do besides blow things up, turn countries upside down and may I add, cause and spread deadly epidemics (Ebola). Yea, lets take some more of our people’s hard earned money and give it to a country half way across the world. A place we have no business being in and money we don’t have . But heck, the world will perceive us as being humanitarian ? I have news for you all, the world saw thru this BS a long time ago. Only our stupid citizens still believe the lie……….As long as people continue to believe the gov propaganda about our evil enemies they will never see our gov is the evil one…….

      Jeff; excerpt from Jim Willie concerning protecting the US DOLLAR. Another banker murder;

      The murder of Total Oil CEO Christophe de Margerie will galvanize anti-USDollar movement among Western European nations. Any member sitting on the fence will no longer be ambivalent. The key players might not talk openly about the murder, but they will react to it. This is a major turning point in psychology, since the victim was a corporate leader within the European Union of nations. This time the murder was behind enemy lines inside Russia, an added message to heads of state. Total Oil is the world’s 13th biggest oil producer and Europe’s 2nd largest. The Jackass suspects one of three fascist nation security agencies at work, Langley, MI-6, and the Masswipes, with no proof offered, just suspicion after observing two decades of ploys, plots, and pranks. Private aircraft are easy prey. Just ask former Governor Paul Wellstone of Minnesota, or Senator John Tower, or Senator John Heinz, or John Kennedy Jr whose “George” magazine had a planned feature article about the murder of his father and the actors behind it. See the Zero Hedge article (CLICK HERE).

      De Margerie is attributed with two key quotes, which should serve well on his tombstone or mausoleum portal. “There is no need to trade oil for the Dollar,” was stated in July 2014. It made headline news, since Russian sanctions were all the rage. At an French economist conference in Aix-en-Provence, he went further. “Nothing prevents anyone from paying for oil in Euros. The price of a barrel of oil is quoted in Dollars. A refinery can take that price and using the Euro-Dollar exchange rate on any given day, agree to make the payment in Euros.” A meeting had just concluded with Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev wherein Total and its partner, Russia’s largest independent oil and gas producer Novatek, would begin selling oil and liquefied natural gas (LNG) in either Euros or Rubles, and not US Dollars. Total and Novatek have a US$27 billion project to develop a LNG project in the Yamal region of the Russian Arctic that should start producing in 2017. The field’s proven reserves are estimated at 800 million barrels of oil equivalent, likely to yield 15 million tons LNG per year. Such USDollar opposition plus his dedication to develop Iran energy sources rendered De Margerie a target to the Western banker energy titans who have resorted in recent years to defend the Petro-Dollar to war, genocide, and murder.

In other news i’ve done some stumbling around on the internet and found some interesting stuff that’s worth a read imo….

    This kind of corresponds to Johanthan Cahn’s Sept. 13, 2015 Shemitah year or 29 Elul with it culminating into a complete global economic collapse.

    Greg, this strategy of “ramping up for Ebola” by letting infected people into country so “we can track them” sounds a lot like the strategy that was used for “fast and furious” where our own ATF agents were providing weapons they purchased here in the US to drug cartels operating in territories south of our border so we could “track them.” We all know how well that worked out. Truly the inmates are running the asylum. No fear though, the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ, in Whom is the Light of Life so that no man may walk in darkness but instead have the light of Life because he who walks in the darkness is blind and does not see where he is going (1Jn.2:11, Jn.12:35)

    Greg,

    No doubt in my mind what happened in NYC is a terrorist act although the first ones to harm from it are muslims in this country which leads me to the point am trying to make here:

    If you look at what is happening in middle east you will reach the conclusion that it is a plan well put and well executed to EVACUATE LANDS.

    Easiest way to do it is to fund , unleash, trained fanatics in an area that is heavily populated, then close the eye on a tyrant that controls that area when he bombs the hell of that populated area (and please keep in mind that this tyrant is supported and assigned by UN itself) then have a lot of people fleeing the FAST death to CONCENTRATION CAMPS to face the SLOW death there.
    In brief, TEXT BOOK AGENDA 21.
    If that tyrant cannot do the job we will help him doing it or Russia will help him do it, depends on where in the world you are looking at.

    Now ,
    Just please do a review of all the reports talking about the fertility rate of Muslims in the continent of Europe and America compared to the fertility rate of the locals, and please notice all the reports about what is the predicted number of the muslims in 20-30 years and you will hear the alarm bells in those reports, and please keep in mind that i am here describing things and putting emotions aside because emotions can interfere with judgment.

    That leads me to believe that we are at a stage of REPEATING what happened in Andalus (Spain) at the level of Europe and North America, when they completely cleaned the land from every muslim on it at that time. So on one aspect you start hearing the crescendo tones of condemning Islam as a religion promotes terrorism ( and here am describing in an unbiased way what is happening so i can understand) and on another aspect they are inflaming emotions overseas by hammering muslim countries killing scores of millions to flip some to do something crazy could be used to go ahead with a plan that is already put in place to cleanse muslims and remove that biological time bomb threatening the fabric of those continents.

    You can say to me what are you smoking Mohammad, I will answer you i do not smoke.

    I firmly convinced that this moment of ethnic cleansing that would not happen except in KAOS is coming to Europe and North America. I can see the writings on the wall.

    As my personal opinion the concentration camps in Jordan, Turkey , Kurdistan …. are a PREVIEW to what is coming.

    All I can do as an individual is to pray, raise my kids to be righteous , help others and wish for them what i wish for my self, and pray, oh i said it before….. right?…..well no problem, praying is the best thing any one can do.

    Greg,

    Thank you for all you do with your site! It’s the only place I go to regularly anymore.

    In your written summary, you said, ” It’s almost as if they are inviting a pandemic to America.” There’s no ALMOST about it! In the years I have been aware of both the motives and plans of the “elites” (the few individuals who are actually decision makers at the top of their huge organizational tree), I have come to a few conclusions:

    1) They are basically opportunists, which preserves their anonymity and allows them to operate invisibly behind the scenes. They make generous use of “problem, reaction, solution” tactics — creating a “problem,” waiting for the predictable reactions, then offering their solution, which is what they had intended from the beginning. Because of their control of the media, their spin doctors prepare the ground for what follows, and most people do not see the manipulation of their perceptions. They are like spiders who wait for the opportunity to present, then pounce, but they do “help” things along through planting the seeds ahead of time.
    2) They consider that they are the only ones who have both the insight and wisdom to do what’s necessary to guide the fate of the entire world. They also are incredibly insensitive to the pain they inflict in carrying out their plans. As Aaron Russo so eloquently described regarding his friendship with Nick Rockefeller, they don’t care about the rest of us.
    3) They DO intend to depopulate the world and reduce the survivors to two groups — themselves as the masters of everyone else, and everyone else treated according to how useful we might be to them. We saw this occur in Nazi Germany, but this time the intent is to rule the entire world in that fashion.

    None of this is accidental. As opportunists. the elites make use of their planned interventions as well as the natural incompetency that occurs routinely in human organizations. Obama is a perfect puppet and was vetted by the Council of Foreign Relations before running for President. No one who gets into high office gets there without being vetted by the organizations through which the elite operate. Henry Kissinger personally vetted Sarah Palin when John McCain selected her as his running mate.

    I mourn for what has become of the country I was born in and used to love. I saw the gutting of the Constitution begin when the Murrah Building was destroyed (another inside job — see General Partin’s analysis of the explosives placement on the third level columns inside the building) in order to push through the first “antiterrorist” bill. 9/11 was the second attempt on the World Trade Center (the first one did not succeed) and the unwinnable “war on terror” was launched. It is a fiction created by the elite and eventually it will either kill or enslave anyone who is not part of the elite unless there is something like “divine intervention.”

    I do expect it all to come to an end, per Rev. 21:1, and this Earth to pass away entirely, but in the meantime, it’s going to get crazy, painful and ugly, and I am not happy about what is coming.

    Unfortunately, as Rob Kirby pointed out, since the elite control the money and place themselves (and those who serve them well) above the law, there is nothing we can do to protect ourselves from what is coming. If we “prep,” the existing “emergency powers” acts that were signed into law (beginning with the Carter administration) give the “government” (used to be FEMA, now DHS) the right to take what they please, tell us where to live, tell us where we have to work, order us to get vaccinated, and on and on. Anything in our possession can be taken from us, and there is little we can do about it. Our “elected” representatives do not serve us anymore, so there is no point in trying to appeal to them for relief. By the time someone gets to high office, they have sold out to those who put them there by contributing to their campaigns.

    This Ebola epidemic was manufactured by the elites and the corporatocracy and will now serve as the excuse to massively suspend individual rights in the name of “public safety.” The “terrorist” drum is beating loudly, and now the Russians are our enemy again. It seems the entire armatorium of propaganda and lies is being pulled out, and that tells me that we are very close to something very big. The signs are everywhere, and I agree with your encouragement to “fear not.” I am looking down a tunnel and can see the train coming straight at me, but I am not afraid because I am not afraid of dying. I just don’t want to suffer along the way.

    Greg,

    What about Christian Fundamentalist Extremists, many of which hold political positions and jobs within Government Agencies? To a large extent these people are influencing and writing the policies that undermine the Constitution based upon their religious prejudices, and not upon factual opinions! This is the arrogance of American society thinking that no other culture has anything to teach us because we have truth sown up, even when it is based upon a clearly false belief system! These people are anti gun control, racist, bigoted, anti-freedom, murderous, neocons that support the systemic mechanisms of social injustice and crimes against humanity!
    Why do you criticize Islamic extremists and totally ignore mentioning the terrorist acts committed, as a result of Christian fundamentalist extremists? The hideous acts of the American Goon State has a magnitude of scale of atrocities that make the Muslim counterpart look like a bunch of girl guides!
    “Fundamentalism can be found within either a secular or a religious framework. It’s a binary worldview that divides the world into us and them, good and evil, right and wrong. It’s a belief that you and those who subscribe to your ideology have found the absolute truth, which must be accepted by everyone, and those who won’t accept it must be silenced or eradicated. Fundamentalism is an abdication of our moral responsibility to make difficult decisions, because within a fundamentalist movement people are told what to do. They don’t believe in a plurality of truths or ways of being. Fundamentalism is anti-intellectual, because it discourages investigation of other cultures, histories, and belief systems.” …Chris Hedges

      Robert,
      Christians have a “false belief system”? Let me guess, you are an atheist and “progressive.” Correct? You also say, “These people are anti gun control, racist, bigoted, anti-freedom, murderous, neocons that support the systemic mechanisms of social injustice and crimes against humanity!” Spoken like a true social fascist. Only you are right and everyone else who dose not think like you is stupid and wrong. This sounds link Germany in 1935. You are quoting Salon. How far left can you get. It’s the Christians who are the problem??? Who just cut the head off a woman in Oklahoma? Who just killed 50 people in Iraq? Who was behind the Fort Hood terror attack? Don’t come back here.

    Hi Greg
    Russia
    The MSM is jumping up and down hailing the fall of the rouble , lets look at this from Russia’s perspective , Russia is a major oil exporter and is now under sanctions it imports little / is nearly self sufficient in everything from food to vehicles , so the price of a German car goes up who cares they buy a Russian built car , same with food and near everything else . N ow they are paid in dollars which they convert to rubles , now they get one third MORE rubles for every barrel of oil and cubic foot of gas sold to the world , the foreign exchange markets are giving Russia a 30 % price hike on their exports ! .

    Enter the words “Bronze Age collapse” into the YouTube search field, and check out the videos on it. It happened around 1200 BC, and was more catastrophic and significant than the fall of Rome, with an 80% drop in the populations of the affected areas. Fascinating stuff! That happened 3200 years ago, the fall of Rome was 1600 years ago, and if this pattern continues, maybe the U.S. and parts of Western Europe will be “ground zero” for the next catastrophe in the coming years. We shall see….
