WNW 172-Islamic Terror Spreads West, Oil Price Plunge, Declining Economy

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com    (Weekly News Wrap-Up 1.9.15) 

The Head of MI 5, British security, is sounding the alarm that Islamic terrorists from Syria are planning more attacks on the West.  Andrew Parker says al-Qaeda fighters from Syria are planning mass casualty attacks against the West.  He was not specific on the targets, but an attack on the United Kingdom was highly likely according to Parker.  Parker also said that these terrorists want to “cause large-scale loss of life, often by attacking transport systems or iconic targets.”  These are the same al-Qaeda fighters that the West has armed in Syria.  The policy of arming al-Qaeda to overthrow the Assad Regime is backfiring once again.

Many law enforcement agencies in the West, including the United States, are on high alert after what happened in Paris where Islamic radicals gunned down more than a dozen people, including editors and journalists of a satirical newspaper that criticized Islam and the Prophet Mohammad.  Many in Europe are outraged, and I am sure this act will turn up more violence, not only in Europe but here in America.  I think the war on terror is going to kick into another gear, and now terrorists will be carrying out more bloody attacks.  The President is maintaining an unusually low profile here, unlike his comments surrounding Ferguson Missouri.

Folks may be celebrating plunging gasoline prices, but there is a big downside, and that is possible financial calamity associated with debt tied to oil and fracking.  JP Morgan and Citi have about $135 trillion in derivatives between them.  You might remember that JP Morgan and Citi were frantic to get Congress to void taxpayer protections from risky derivatives.  Now, in the event of a derivative meltdown, the taxpayer is going to be on the hook for losses, and the losses could be huge.  It seemed to me that these two banks were panicked to get this protection from losses, and now I think I know why.  Oil prices are down 50% from six months ago, and that means that have to go up 100% just to get back to where they were.

To make matters worse, the President was saying this week in an NPR interview that the oil price decline was a “strategy” against Russia.   Obama said, “. . . the only thing keeping that economy afloat was the price of oil.”  This is a stunning admission that the U.S. and its allies were manipulating the price of oil down, and it was to punish Russia over Ukraine.  This is nothing short of confirmation of government price manipulation of the biggest commodity on the planet and financial war against Russia.  Why would he do this?  The downside, here at home and abroad, is going to be enormous.

Finally, the President is getting ready for the State of the Union address, and he is going to tout the so-called recovery.  As you know, I have been telling you there is no real recovery for Main Street.  Of course, there are a few bright spots, and the only recovery taking place is for Wall Street.  Congress is going to try to do some things to spur the economy such as the XL Pipeline and setting 40 hours as full-time employment as opposed to 30 hours per week under Obama Care.  Obama is threatening to veto both of them, and then he will become the President of “No.”  Expect Democrats to jump ship and vote with Republicans more and more in the next two years.

      How do you make such claim Allen ?
      “Every muslim i have every talked to, agrees Jews should be exterminated!! It is QURAN LAW”
      You talked to me on this forum many many times, did you hear such thing from me and am muslim??

        The people we should be putting in FEMA camps are the Cabal sociopaths without a shred of decency or morals … not the Jews or the Muslims, etc., etc., because the problem goes beyond religion or nationality … simply lock up “all those” who make up the Cabal (whatever their religion or nationality) as “they” have committed the “crimes against humanity” and it is “they” who should be brought to justice!!

      • allen ols

        Abu Huraira (ra) reported Allah’s Messenger (saas) as saying:

        “The Last Hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews. The Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: ‘Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him;’ but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.”
        (Sahih Muslim, Kitab al-Fitan wa Ashrat as-Sa’ah, Book 41, 6985)

        “So that Jews will hide behind trees and the tree will say “Muslim! The servant of Allah! Come, look there is a Jew behind me, he hid here, behind me, come and punish him”. Only the tree Gharqad will not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.”
        (Kitab al-Fitan, hadith. 2239)

        • allen ols

          It is the duty of the muslim to kill the infidel, “non believer” and the Jew!

        • mohammad

          You heard it from me before and i explained it to you and others before and i will say it again:
          That Hadith you referred to is what will happen after JESUS comes back to earth, MAY I REPEAT AGAIN? ok I will as i did before:
          This Hadith is after Jesus comes back to earth.
          So:
          Muslims, Christians , Jews, infidel, Martians, Aliens…. what have you…. who follow Jesus will fight the final battle against JEWS, MUSLIMS , CHRISTIANS or any other entity that claim what they are and take the stand against Jesus.
          AND YES, they will be defeated and KILLED since then no one can stand against Jesus and Justice.

          And there is no room for mistake then:
          JESUS is the perfect , beautiful , complete.
          Dajjal (Anti -Christ) is the one eyed, ugly and incomplete.
          NO ROOMS FOR MISTAKES THEN and the lines are crystal clear.

          Comprende..?

            Mohammad,
            My Jesus, who preceded Mohammad by 600 years, is not coming back to kill anybody. He’s coming back to save us. Jesus is not death. Jesus is life and love. I hope you do follow him when he returns because he will not lead you to the place you described.

                    Mohammed,

                    You are correct -Armageddon follows the Return of Jesus Christ. There are three Advents. First, 2000 years ago as Savior and rejected Messiah. Next is the imminent appearance in the clouds, for the Rapture of the Church of all true (born-again) believers – that (I believe) will start the official take-over of dajjal, or anti-Christ, and the Tribulation of seven years. It is at the end of this Tribulation that Jesus Christ comes to touch the earth; will conquer all foes of God Almighty; and begin a Millennial reign, ruling and reigning from Jerusalem. I believe you speak of the Third Advent. And He does war. Your concordance is correct. Rev. 19:11-21.

                    Mohammad,

                    So, if I am an agnostic and I do not recognize Jesus and therefore I do not follow him, you will come and kill me?
                    Is that correct?

                    So is that what is behind your “civilized mask”? I think I will have to watch out for you!

                    I was questioning Greg a little bit about his opinion on the 10% of the muslims being radical in a comment below. But after reading your comments I have to say this causes me to think it is the correct opinion.

                Like the old Cain and Abel story … depicting the continuing struggle between good and evil … but it’s not about who believes (or writes in their texts) “they are the good Abel and need to exact retribution” …the fact all must agree upon is that “killing in and of itself” is evil … neither side wants to be depicted as the evil Cain who killed his brother … yet we still see in the Middle East today brother killing brother … until the “blame game” stops and both sides can simply Stand Down and agree that “killing in and of itself is evil” … the Middle East will return to the Eden it once was!

              The DNA of Abraham flows in the blood of both Ishmael and Isaac and in the blood of both Muhammad and Jesus … and after close to three thousand years we can’t reconcile the fact that both prophets stood for love and peace … that both prophets were brothers … lets not continue to make one brother Cain and the other brother Abel … for both Muhammad and Jesus believed “thou shall not kill” … yet the brothers of Abraham to this day can’t stop the killing in the Middle East … why? … why can’t we make the Middle East Eden again.

            Read your Bible, Greg.
            Jesus came as the Saviour the first time.
            He is coming as Judge the second time.
            There is a battle coming.
            Mohammad is right.

            Revelation 19:19
            And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war against Him who sat on the horse (Jesus) and against His army.

            vs. 21
            And the rest [of mankind] (those fighting against Jesus and His armies) were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse and all the birds were filled with their flesh.

            • Greg Hunter

              Old Dog,
              Jesus is not coming to kill Christians and Jews as the Koran says. You and I think Christ is the Son of God as stated in the Bible many times. The Koran does not. I am sorry I did not make that point clear. I was answering Mohammad about Christ the Son of God and nothing more. Thank you for weighing in here my friend.
              Greg

              • mohammad

                Greg,

                Quran does not say Jesus is coming back to kill Jews and Christians.
                The ultimate test of humanity is Jesus return, when that happens all religions will be irrelevant and it will be one of two things, either you are a follower of Jesus, or you are a follower of Dajjal (anti christ).
                The ultimate test is to be on the right side.
                And as I mentioned before the differentiation between the two is not that difficult:
                Jesus is beautiful , COMPLETE.
                Dajjal is UGLY, ONE EYED.
                And yes there will be a battle, and Jesus will kill the Dajjal and believers in Jesus will prevail. I DID NOT MAKE THAT UP, it is mentioned in all holy books, other wise how would we know about it?
                Sorry to post after i said in a previous one that it will be my last post on the thread but it is so important that i had to.
                One thing fascinating about your site Greg is you ability to accept all views and allow them to express freely on your blog and that what makes you SO SO SO SPECIAL.

                • Greg Hunter

                  Mohamad,
                  Help me out here please. When I put this question in Google: “Does the Koran really say Jews and Christians should be killed?”
                  I get: “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks. . . Surah 4:89”

                  The translation below the Surah said, “If Jews and Christians reject Islam, this says to capture them and kill them, wherever they are.”

                  Is this misquoted from the Koran? Isn’t this why Islamic extremists are killing Christians? I am not giving you a hard time. Can you give your take?

      Allen,
      It is true that Oil and Dollar liquidity are the grease that keeps the economies of the world in motion.
      Lower gas (energy) prices is a subset of the overall picture of economic stability and sustainability. Consistent lower prices is as important as continued liquidity.
      The dilemma for the commoner is to seek an alternative for the opportunity cost of the gas savings. That is…where do you spend the difference between $4 and $2.50 Gas ?
      In a climate of economic growth and wellbeing…the answer becomes clearer perhaps and the consumer …continues to consume (in relation to the US consumer = high spending low savings). In our current state of play (unemployment, lower real wages, debt burdens and uncertainty), I suspect the any savings generated are not finding their way into the economy (thus dollars are being hoarded).
      Notwithstanding this, the cost of Energy is a vital component to all economies because it is inherent in all cost structures. Lower energy costs are beneficial to all businesses even those that are in the producing sector.
      The critical point of the matter however is what is forcing the price of Oil (and hence Gas) lower?
      Is the world having a “fire” sale (where surplus stock is being heavily discounted) or is it being forced lower for other reasons (geo-political). I believe it is short term and unsustainable.
      Whatever the case , the narrative tells us the weak Global economic picture will override any short term beneficial pricing in Oil. The compounding effects of lower oil/gas prices are detrimental to producing nations which then feeds into the other global economies.
      Think of it in terms of the domino effect. Lower prices = lower profits for producers = lower GDP(exports) = lower employment= lower demand. It becomes a deflationary cycle because credit expansion slows (lack of investment in capital and exploration).
      Ultimately we are then facing a true supply / demand shock….which forces prices to rise inexplicably. If you thought lower cost of fuel was indicative of a recessionary/deflationary trend which then portends even more economic trouble, then the (MUCH) higher price of Oil will destroy an semblance of growth and will turn a recession into a depression.
      In the medium to longer term…we are all on a collision course with the Masters of money and Mother Nature. Mother Nature always wins.
      I don’t profess to be a world expert on Economic matters.
      This is just my take on where things stand. Hope it helps.

    a wench, a guest, and weather rainy. b. franklin

    from BILL HOLTER;

    I call a FULL ALERT because control has and is being lost. There are no more “bazookas” left as Hank Paulson called it. There are not even any bullets left! Can they sweep it under the rug again as they have done for so many years? I believe no, there are no more “can kicks”. I don’t believe the ability exists because there are so many markets and asset classes going “in the wrong direction” in violent moves. Even gold, THE most sacrosanct market to the total “rig” has been quietly going higher throughout all of this. In fact, looked at versus non dollar currencies, gold has been in a rip roaring bull market for several months …while demand for the metal has exploded.

    Hi Greg
    I just want point out few things:
    1st Islamist attacks are not unintended. Yes, somebody is using these Gladio-like tactics to form the public opinion to push agendas.
    2nd Paris attackers are childes of immigrants.
    3rd Up to 5% of Muslims are wackjobs-Islamists.
    4th Only 16% of Russian GDP is from oil and gas revenues, about 10-15% is from other resource selling.
    5th Obama is either provoking the Russians or the falling oil prices are unintended consequences of strong US Dollar or more likely both.

    My 2 cents
    Oracle 911

    • Pablo

      To your point #1 I think I agree with you:

      LOTS more behind this attack than dismissing it as what the media is writing it off as being simply radical muslims…… Need to look past the media spin and Govt propaganda to see the REAL picture here. WHO stands to gain from such an attack? ISrael and the French Govts

      France has been recently siding with Palestine on issues, so this could be Mossad.

      LONG history of governments trying to exacerbate racial and ethnic tensions (which do exist) but they play into them.

      These “brothers” without any military training, pulled this off in western style military tactics including using hand gestures used by western military.

      They KNEW of an internal meeting at the paper at the exact time where all the staff would be at the same time.

      I’m sure the French govt doesn’t mind this distraction, not too many French concerned that their economy is imploding and the EU is in crises much now that the Muslim boogey men are gunning for them…

          If one could entertain the thought that this is part of the Master-plan to create the atmosphere to force the Arab (Muslim) Nations into confrontation with the Jews, one could see WWIII as the ultimate aim. Russia’s involvement is no accident either. It has a score to settle and has direct involvement via select Arab nations.
          This brings the world to a position that was faced during WWII and several other incidents subsequent- shades of Ethnic Cleansing.
          We shall see how the MSM handles this and what agenda they have (with their powers of persuasion forcing opinion onto the public). It will become a very fine line (esp. for France)….keeping the pro Jewish community and the society at large in abeyance and orderly whilst not unsettling 5MLN Muslims who have taken residency.

          The Communist Political machine are forcing their left wing agendas onto the Globe. Beware the UN is growing in stature. It will in and of itself be the NWO Governing body by then end of this decade.

          Allen,

          It happened before and it is happening in front of our eyes again now and very few are aware of the facts, most are driven by emotions that obscure 20/20 sight that i thank god for giving it to me besides my physician’s instinct that makes me see the unnoticeable.
          First dot:
          Civil wars in Iraq and in Syria and later on in Egypt to EMPTY THE LAND from its fabric which is muslims, christian and jews and depopulate.
          Second dot:
          Israel does not have enough population to concur the empty land and survive, and here please keep in mind that ISRAEL IS THE ONLY STATE IN THE WORLD WITHOUT WELL DEFINED BOUNDARIES….keep it in the back drop of mind because we are going back to it later on.
          Third dot:
          Inorder to fill the empty land they have to recruit jews to come back to Israel (REMEMBER ALSO THAT ISRAEL IS THE ONLY STATE IN THE WORLD CLAIMING IT IS JEWISH AND THAT WAS JUST RECENTLY),
          If I was a jew, happy in France or in any other country in the world i have a good business going and am living in prosperity then why to leave ? yes … I would love to visit the holy land every time i wish but why to leave my business, money, memories….etc. UNLESS, something terrifies me and FORCES me to leave like what happened in Germany 1939-1945.
          Here is a link to what CONFIRMS my theory and that drumbeat is by nothing but … NETANYAHU:

          http://news.yahoo.com/netanyahu-steps-appeal-french-jews-attacks-113532462.html

          Put those 3 points together and you will have a picture THAT HAPPENED EXACTLY IN 1939-1945 , Same exact scenario but different execution, then it was the nazis then when the Zionists wanted youth jews to move to the newly conceived state, and now it is “Islamic terrorists” that will move more to the empty land that is evacuated by the Zionists with the civil wars fueled by them and fought by their puppets.

          That is why Rabbi’s like rabbi Weiss are AWARE of the EVIL plan that the Zionists are executing.

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2SYMj41Q9U

          It is happening in front of our eyes and the zionist will hit many birds with one evil stone, they will scare jews out of their places to flock to Israel and the new empty land in Syria , Iraq and Egypt (remember what they say about the boundaries of israel that is on the flag – from river to river..!!), they will unroot Muslims like me from where they are, they will reset the monetary system for Israel to emerge as a super power after the current supper powers collide and finally they will DEPOPULATE.

          I hope you guys put emotions aside, and think a little bit of what the subtle signs are screaming at you, yo will find out that all of us including god fearing jews are victims to this evil plan executed by Zionists who happened to be atheists.

      Greg. …”President was saying this week in an NPR interview that the oil price decline was a “strategy” against Russia…” don’t believe it, the President is full of himself, and it was just his egocentric personality trying to take credit for the low gas price claiming it was a strategy. The President is quick to take credit for anything that goes well even if its a simple coincidence. On the other hand he never accepts responsibility for anything that goes wrong; classic functioning egotistical personality. The sooner he leaves office and starts around partying and giving speeches the better off we will be.

        When opportunity comes knocking…best to grab it with both hands.
        BO’s advisers saw the opportunity to take credit for the “Strategy” of lowering the Oil price…something which is beyond the realms of plausibility given their history of incompetence and impotence. Hmmmmm…but then again they are perfectionists at destroying an economy whilst bullying the globe under the guise of the King Dollar regime.
        Oil prices are not lower because of supply-demand equations. An obscure HF or two acting under directions of a sovereign nation (cabal) in tandem with algo’s and derivatives use, are likely instigators and perpetrators.

      O, 5 percent of 1.5 billion, well, you do the math, its a big number and who knows the numbers of Muslims who are secretly in agreement or look favorable with the 5 percent wackjobs,, maybe another 600 million or so. What ever it is, the numbers are adding up and the incidents are going along the same curve.

      • Paul from Indiana

        Art, Obama is at heart a Muslim. He has waxed rhapsodic in public and in writing about his positive, sentimental attachments to his Muslim experiences in boyhood. He is trying to get out of the White House with his record intact of having done nothing to impede the advance of Islam in any and all of its manifestations. These last two years will prove to be of particular challenge in that regard. And many will suffer accordingly. Best always. PM

      As of 2012 oil and gas sector accounted for 16% of the GDP, 52% of federal budget revenues and over 70% of total exports. I don’t see sanction’s as a tool of destruction for Russia. When you grow your own its hard for outsiders to affect you.

      You CANNOT Negotiate With Mentally Defective People
      By Karl Denninger

      This is a cultural war. It is not an isolated incident. It is not a tiny percentage of people that hold these “religious” beliefs; if it was then there would be a billion people both decrying and hunting down these animals, and that has never, in over 1,000 years, happened.

      Example #1:

      ISLAMABAD – Police say a 52-year-old Muslim man arrested for blasphemy was killed by gunmen after being released from jail.

      Blasphemy is punished by jail and then murder? This is acceptable, civilized conduct? You can reason or negotiate with such people? No, not any more than you can negotiate with these guys:

      Nigerian Islamist militant group Boko Haram have attacked the northeastern town of Baga for the second time in a week, leaving bodies littering the streets, according to an official.

      Two locals said the Islamist insurgents began shooting indiscriminately and burning buildings on Tuesday evening in raids on the civilian population that carried on into Wednesday.

      More than 2,000 people are unaccounted for according to Musa Bukar, chairman of local government for the Kukawa district, which includes Baga.

      So murdering 2,000 people for ****s and grins constitutes something you can negotiate over?

      The hell it is.

      Of course in France we have a publisher that was murdered for what was seen as “blasphemy” as well, along with what are at least two groups of gunmen that are generally terrorizing the nation at this very moment – all because the French refuse to defer to their view of what sort of respect an ancient raging, raping pedophile should receive…..cont’d

    greg;

    There are two ways to look at the alleged terrorist attack on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

    One is that in the English speaking world, or much of it, the satire would have been regarded as “hate speech,” and the satirists arrested. But in France Muslims are excluded from the privileged category, took offense at the satire, and retaliated.

    Why would Muslims bother? By now Muslims must be accustomed to Western hypocrisy and double standards. Little doubt that Muslims are angry that they do not enjoy the protections other minorities receive, but why retaliate for satire but not for France’s participation in Washington’s wars against Muslims in which hundreds of thousands have died? Isn’t being killed more serious than being satirized?

    Another way of seeing the attack is as an attack designed to shore up France’s vassal status to Washington. The suspects can be both guilty and patsies. Just remember all the terrorist plots created by the FBI that served to make the terrorism threat real to Americans.

    • Silence is Golden

      This creates even more hatred towards the US.
      Knowing and having evidence about US involvement (via their nefarious agencies) pushes those countries on the cusp to actually moving away and aligning with a new world power. If anything these actions do more to encourage than to deter ….said Washington Vassal States…. from moving away.
      Expect an increase in the efforts of the Empire to shore up its allegiance. We are only just starting to see the manifestation of these actions.

      and…. Bill Maher says;

      On Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC, Bill Maher reacted to the Islamist attack in Paris by beseeching his ideological fellow travelers to “turn toward the truth” about the Muslim world’s opposition to “liberal principles.” Maher underlined that “hundreds of millions of [Muslims] support an attack like this. They applaud an attack like this. What they say is – oh, we don’t approve of violence, but you know what? When you make fun of the prophet, all bets are off.” Host Jimmy Kimmel pushed back a bit against the HBO personality’s view: “Do you really think hundreds of millions of Muslims support this?” Maher replied, “Absolutely. That is mainstream in the Muslim world – that when you make fun of the prophet, all bets are off. – See more at: http://newsbusters.org/blogs/matthew-balan/2015/01/08/maher-warns-liberals-hundreds-millions-muslims-back-terrorism?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=marketing&utm_term=facebook&utm_content=facebook&utm_campaign=maher-terrorism#sthash.pswEHkgE.dpuf

    Obama was in Phoenix on Thursday at a local high school touting the great economy and all the things he was going to do to facilitate home ownership (cutting PMI costs in half, for one). I heard all kinds of gushing on the local news by the adults who were there. Home ownership — like shovel ready, affordable care. He is teaming up with the Pope on global warming. Now there is a scam you truly can believe in.

    I had bad vibes about Francis right from the start. Suddenly the Vatican is front and center in the news and the Pope has an opinion on all things political. The press, from what I can tell, just loves this guy. Suddenly papist dogma is trendy and he cannot say anything wrong. Red flag.

    I do not get O’s obsession with besting Russia. If it is true that our CIA had something to do with crashing the ruble in Gorbachev’s time, it is just beyond the pale what Obama has admitted to. It is his glee that makes me squirm. We have an absolute creep for president.

  7. J Medina

    Greg,
    US supported terrorists have been trying to attack the US/West for many years. Remember the attacks on US embassies in Africa and the USS Cole in Yemen. Is blow-back coming to haunt the West? Now it is so overt that Stevie Wonder can see it. NATO announced this week that Russia was an ally against global terrorism. Look at some of the countries that have been attack recently by terrorist. For instance, Australia signed a trade agreement with China in November 2014 and suffered a terrorist attack four weeks later. Also, French President Holland recently stated the sanctions against Russia should end immediately. A few days later terrorist attacked Charlie Hebdo. Is this a coincidence ? Those who are moving away from the US sphere are getting attacked.
    Terrorist attacks in Europe are an attempt to further create chaos and a scapegoat. Muslims are one of the fastest growing minority/immigrant group in Europe. If people act in vigilantism, it could cause great riots over Europe. A way to distract people from the horrible European economy. This is similar to the chaos in the US caused by the false narrative, with respect to police actions and minorities. This is a way to divide and conquer; mental slavery. These distractions are a way to control the conversation away from the collapsing economy, corrupt government, and their puppet masters, banksters.
    Although the US economy is dying from its core, Russia has one of the strongest economies. From what I found Russia has zero external debt, massive amounts of natural resources with a large amount of readily customers, increasing trade ties around the world (BRICS and their associates), not only great technological advances in defense systems, but also medicine and a strong currency (I think it is free floating).
    The US economy is sinking. It is up to us to decide if we will go down with the ship or build lifeboats.

    Greg
    Though you are very astute in some areas on global events, it’s unfortunate that you still buy into all this Islamic terrorist propaganda that the west has been pushing for more than a decade now.

    By creating the terrorist boogeyman the powers that be have been able to start wars, destroy nations and implement their draconian agendas worldwide. How people can still be so naïve after all the false flag events beginning with 9/11 is beyond me. All you need to do is dig a little deeper, open your eyes a little wider and the truth will appear.

    Unfortunately, it is too late to change the course of things but there are always options and some better than others. Stocking up on food, supplies, buying a little gold and moving away from a densely populated city, however, is not going to do it. As I like to say, there was no safe haven on the Titanic – you either made it to a life boat or went down with the ship – rich or poor. And that will be the outcome this time around also.

    Greg …
    Just a thought … if Islamic terrorists from Syria (planning and carrying out attacks on France and England) were backed and financed by Assad … do you think both France and England would be sending their fighter jets over the Syrian Capital?
    Most probably France and England would without a doubt go after Assad for backing and financing these terrorists attacking them … so the question then arises … why don’t we see French and English fighter jets flying over Washington (for financing and backing the Islamic terrorists now attacking London and Paris)??

    • jc davis

      Paul. Good question. You know the answer They know they would lose that fight. However I must say if the electrical grid was taken down our so called friends would rain there revenge quickly. I cant stress enough to folks how important it is to be able to leave the city areas in a moments notice.

  13. Mason

    Greg,

    I do have a point to make:

    You correctly state – and have been correctly for a long time – that what we are seeing now is blowback from the *moderate* (meaning Al-Queda affiliated) rebels the West has been funding / arming in Syria.

    My point is this:
    This is a typical Problem–>Solution–>Reaction scenario by the Western elites.

    Problem:
    create a threat by arming Al-Quaeda in Syria (and directly or indirectly kill hundred of thousands op people in Iraq) and wait for blowback and terrorist attacks to happen.

    Reaction:
    People in the West say that radical islam is a threat and turn to government for protection.

    Solution:
    You come up with the “solution” that you would never have been able to sell before: an endless war on terror, more security-camera’s on the street, more surveillance-drones, more militarization of the police, more budget increases for police and defence to “fight the terrorists over there” (and conveniently creating a bigger breeding ground for more terrorists).

    You have to be blind in my opinion, not to see this. And this is only one example of many that the NWO-elite are enforcing on us.

    I think now would be the right time for G. Edward Griffin to come on USAWatchdog to explain how this Problem–>Reaction–>Solution mechanism works.

    I just had to connect these dots. But other than that: Excellent Weekly News Wrap Up as usual Greg and great to see you back on the WNW!

    • Silence is Golden

      The bigger picture is WWIII.
      Unsettling of the ME region.
      Creating terrorist factions, lawlessness with the West being perceived as the Evil empire.
      Russian involvement (siding with Muslim States).
      The battleground is set.
      The opponents are swelling.
      The fuse that lights the fire is readied.

      • Mason

        The West against Russia, China and 1,6 billion muslims, you say? Mmmmmm, that is speculation but it could come to be true unfortunately. Now that would be an extremely ugly war, to put it mildly.

        • Silence is Golden

          It is unfortunate because like with the previous two world wars, the third is planned. What we are seeing now is the foundations of its making. Russia plays a significant part of that episode in history. You can clearly see how this is fomenting if you care to look.

  14. DiscoProJoe

    Great commentary, Greg, but with one point of disagreement. You say, “The real enemy is radical Islam.”

    However, my views are as follows:

    A. Your worst enemy (and the biggest threat to your freedom) is *yourself*: making unwise decisions, remaining in situations that don’t suit you, and blaming yourself for other people’s problems.

    B. The second-most-significant threat to your freedom is *your own government*: confiscating a large portion of your income, stifling the economy, attempting to micromanage every facet of your life, and putting you at risk of rogue attacks and terrorist acts because of your regime’s insane foreign policies.

    C. Foreign enemies (and terrorists) pose *very little* threat to your freedom — especially when compared to yourself and your own government. Politicians, the mainstream media, and some of their major lobbyists, shareholders, and advertisers love to fool people away from this obvious fact.

    Now, imagine how much better most people’s lives would be if each of them focused 97 percent of their personal energy on (A), three percent of their efforts on (B), and almost nothing on (C). Wow…it’s amazing, isn’t it!

    Anyway, on this topic, check out my favorite author Harry Browne’s most widely-read article he ever published, entitled, “When Will We Learn?” released online late in the evening of September 11, 2001. I remember cheering when receiving it in my e-mail late that evening. He eventually made it into a 4-part series. You can read it here: http://www.wnd.com/2001/09/10817

    Happy New Year, and happy enlightenment! 🙂

    • DiscoProJoe

      In that awesome article, Harry Browne says, “When will we learn that we can’t allow our politicians to bully the world without someone bullying back eventually?”

  15. Aziz JAAFAR

    Hi Greg,
    concerning the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack you have an interesting analysis made by Dr Paul Craig Roberts in his excellent website and I agree with him.Personally I believe those who committed the attack are islamists radicals maniplulated by the Gladio program (or “stay-behind” program,it’s the same).
    As for Ferguson,I’m surprised you ignore there is a problem with the police and the Police State that the politics are building for years.
    I agree with you that the financial war against Russia is as stupid as dangerous.
    And I think 2015 is the year we have THE huge western meltdown.

    • Greg Hunter

      Aziz,
      My point was simply there is zero evidence of white police hunting down unarmed black men and murdering them–zero. The police state is a different issue and it is real. I also agree 2015 is the year of the “huge western meltdown.” Thank you for your comment.
      Greg

  16. Mason

    To illustrate my point that the islamist terrorits attacks in Paris serve the purpose of the government:

    Martin Armstrong writes:

    Italy’s Version of the Patriot Act?

    “The Italian government is preparing to enact stronger anti-terrorism laws in the wake of the Paris attack. Our sources in Italy see this as an opportunity much like the Patriot Act was used in the USA after 911. Any terror suspects who wish to leave the country, their passport can be withdrawn. The police should have more rights to block websites that used the terrorists for propaganda as well. THE DEFINITION OF A “TERRORIST”: IS BECOMING ANYONE WHO DISAGREES WITH GOVERNMENT. The problem in italy is the rise resistance against Europe. This is being fueled as unemployment among the youth exceeds 50%.”

  17. Carolyn

    Whats interesting.everbody talks about how the taxpayers are going to be on the hook for the next bubble, but I’m still trying to figure out who are the taxpayers that have the money? I don’t think the folks working at several Jo bs and still living with somebody to make their student loan payment actually has the money. Or the folks that are on some form of assistance have it either or the folks that are looking for a job had really paid into taxes. I guess we can give them our food stamps and health care and call it even.

    • jc davis

      Carolyn. Good question. I asked myself could this be a land grab? 30% of the USA is government land. Mostly the western area. I would not put anything past this oligarchy controlled government. They already tried to give China a city in this country. They are buying land all over the USA. http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/a-chinese-group-plans-to-construct-a-200-acre-china-city-in-michigan

    • Rick Perkins

      “..who are the taxpayers?”

      From the link below, at the time I looked at it, the debt “owed” per tax payer is $154,061.00. Taking unfunded liabilities into account, the debt per taxpayer is $789,145.00

      http://www.usdebtclock.org/

      Obviously the current taxpayers can not pay those amounts, and your friends in Washington know that. Their solution has been to obligate, by law, the earnings of our children and grand children, and their children and grand children..etc, to pay this “debt owed” to a private bank currently in control of our monetary system.

      Carolyn, another more important question you might ask, since it gets to the root of the debt issue, is…”Why have our friends in Washington, having been delegated Constitutional power to create and issue money without interest, instead borrow that money at interest from a privately owned central bank and thereby commit current and future generations of Americans to debt slavery to that bank.?”

  18. paul

    Greg …
    Some of my thoughts on precious metals and the US dollar may not be main stream yet as everyone sees the recent rise in the US dollar as a negative for both gold and silver … they believe the “matrix dollar” is a bastion of “everlasting value” that should be put in a shoe box under your bed because there are only a quadrillion of them in the world (printed up out of thin air).

    But consider this … could it be people are simply unloading their more worthless fiat (Yen, Euro’s, etc.) for US dollars … so they can then go out and buy Gold??? … US government data is now showing that Short holdings in gold has dropped for the sixth week in the last seven.

    And, what has happened recently that seems to have caused a panic out of short positions in Gold?

    Is it that Russia and the Saudi’s have just blown up the Cabal’s petrodollar system?

    And, because of this blow up “one link” in the Cabal’s financial chain (holding the entire banking system together) may have already snapped?

    If the Cabal’s financial chain has been broken … then defaulting derivatives have “already made” Governments and their Central Banks legally insolvent.

    If Governments and their Central Banks are “already” legally insolvent … what value does their fiat paper money have in a bankruptcy court?

    If people haven’t guessed already … it’s zero!!

    Now since gold and silver can never default as an asset … as both are “debt-free” money … both gold and silver become “the only” true safe havens for ones wealth.

    So the strong US dollar could just be “a symptom” of people running to it initially … but ultimately … moving their wealth into the “safest haven” … gold and silver (if they can find enough of it).

    • Jeff L

      ” But consider this … could it be people are simply unloading their more worthless fiat (Yen, Euro’s, etc.) for US dollars … so they can then go out and buy Gold??? ” …………. Paul, they can buy gold in Yen or Euros. Why convert to the dollar to do it ?

      • paul

        To give them time to find the gold and silver they want … just ask Rob how difficult it is to get hold of significant quantities of gold and silver. So switching out of falling fiat currencies into a rising fiat dollar “preserves their capital” until they can place it in a more secure form of money as it becomes available.

    • J Medina

      Paul,
      Your question on foreign fiat currency trading for gold is an interesting one. For instance, the gold price did not change much ( ~$50) in 2014 with respect to the dollar. If one was to look at the price of gold with respect to foreign currencies (ie Euro, Ruble, Yen, etc.), the gold price has grown substantially. Better to trade in foreign currency for dollars to buy precious metals.

      • Jeff L

        If you bought the dollar this week you lost while waiting…….. It was a great trade till then……… Medina ……. Buying gold in any currency would have worked well. Many traders have touted buying gold in Yen or Euro because that is were the movement is…….. Yesterdays profits could become tomorrows losses.

      I absolutely agree with you my friend.
      Check out this video and you will see that parts of the Paris shooting were fake and completely staged. And I might add they were acted out extraordinarily badly indeed.
      TPTB obviously think we, the masses, are extraordinarily thick. The sad part of all of this is that they are right. With the able assistance of the MSM we will swallow virtually any narrative that they can dig up.

      I will quote from a fellow WD commenter ‘Texas Citizen’ who on 12/12/14 wrote what I consider a brilliant comment;
      “The strategy is simple – overwhelm the system with so many “unbelievable events” that the public just gets weary and worn out.”

  20. Robert E. Salt

    I doubt very much that Islamic terrorists were involved with the attack in Paris. The identity of patsies were conveniently left in the killers’ vehicle, just like the passport of a patsy was left at 9/11. Who do you suppose would set up Arab muslims? “War by deception”. This story conveniently happened right after Prince Andrew was linked to Epstein island. I just found out that some of our abortion clinics uses fetuses to be raised like cattle and used as sex slaves for pedophiles in the military industrial complex and for powerful people in government and the motion picture industry. Without parents these children have no one to care about them. Prominent American names have been linked to the Epstein island of sex slaves as well as Prince Andrew.

  21. alya

    Dear Greg and readers,
    Please, let me correct you when you say the biggest threat to the US is not Russia but radical Muslims. I don’t think the threat is Russia, nor radicals. Why ?? Because as you said, the 1,7 billion muslims live peacefully and don”t want any trouble.
    The radical don’t represent 10%, your figure is wrong. They rather represent 1% , which is totally different. Also, those 1% are manipulated by their “boss” who are the very same people who provide them with weapons, money and training. Yes, the US and other Westen Countries are the ones behind all those terrible attacks. Remember 9/11 ?? What happen after ?? Stories kept on changing.
    I live in France and we already have facts proving the two guys were at least manipulated and fell into a trap. Those who made the killings showed high military training. The two brothers couldn’t have possibly have been trained military style.
    Another fact : a few hours after the killings, Israel News Broadcast released the identity of the two suspects. How the hell did they know???
    There are plenty of other FACTS indicating it was a “false flag” attack? Yesterday, one of the top police officer in charge of this case committed “suicide”.
    Islam is a religion of peace and never called for killing people. The United Nations reports show that muslims in the world are the very first victimes of terrorism, not Americans, not French, but innocent muslims around the wold, particularly in Irak Burma, Afganistan, Central Africa.
    Please, give people real facts and real information.
    Hope my comment won’t be censored.

      Abu Huraira (ra) reported Allah’s Messenger (saas) as saying:

      “The Last Hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews. The Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: ‘Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him;’ but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.”
      (Sahih Muslim, Kitab al-Fitan wa Ashrat as-Sa’ah, Book 41, 6985)

      “So that Jews will hide behind trees and the tree will say “Muslim! The servant of Allah! Come, look there is a Jew behind me, he hid here, behind me, come and punish him”. Only the tree Gharqad will not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.”
      (Kitab al-Fitan, hadith. 2239)

          The Netherlands[edit]
          Further information: History of the Jews in the Netherlands
          In the Netherlands, antisemitic incidents, from verbal abuse to violence, are reported, allegedly connected with Islamic youth, mostly boys from Moroccan descent. A phrase made popular during football matches against the so-called Jewish football club Ajax has been adopted by Muslim youth and is frequently heard at pro-Palestinian demonstrations: “Hamas, Hamas, Jews to the gas!”
          Belgium[edit]
          Further information: History of the Jews in Belgium
          There were recorded well over a hundred antisemitic attacks in Belgium in 2009. This was a 100% increase from the year before.
          France[edit]
          Further information: History of the Jews in France
          In 2004, France experienced rising levels of Islamic antisemitism and acts that were publicized around the world.[180][181][182] In 2006, rising levels of antisemitism were recorded in French schools.
          Germany[edit]
          According to a 2012 survey, 18% of the Turks in Germany believe Jews are inferior human beings.[194][195
          Norway[edit]
          Further information: Antisemitism in Norway
          In 2010, the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation after one year of research, revealed that anti-semitism was common among Norwegian Muslims.
          Sweden
          A government study in 2006 estimated that 5% of the total adult population and 39% of adult Muslims “harbour systematic antisemitic views”.[196] The former prime minister Göran Persson described these results as “surprising and terrifying”.

            Prior to WWII we had the rise of Nazism…A Political tool conveniently used to gain momentum. Europe was (perhaps still is) deeply anti-Semitic for centuries.
            The Rise of Zionism is no surprise. It too has a political motive.

    Greg, there are more flocks of sheep in the world than there are letters in the alphabet. The enduring enemy of the these flocks seems to be the instigators and the master of these instigators whose purpose is to distract, divide, and deceive.

    Be leery when non specific, “intelligent propaganda”, A.K.A. fear is used to pit one letter of the alphabet against another letter of the alphabet, creating alphabet soup. The faceless instigator bystands, thrilled and laughing, as he bathes in the blood of the sheep.

    Humans seem capably stubborn enough to ultimately choose their own shepherd/leader.

    Choose wisely, my friend, and don’t despair.

  23. Texas citizen

    Greg,

    First I just have to get this out there: The so called war on terror is rediculous. You can’t have a war unless you have an enemy. Terror is a method, not an enemy. Unless and until the enemy is identified there is no “war”, just victims. We know who the enemy is but Obama and company will never state it – because “we” not Islam are the enemies in their eyes.

    That said, we can be sure that “the powers that be” are not stupid. The events of the day are as carefully planned as an Obama TelePrompTer speach. The governments are only a front for the criminals and the ultimate goal is destruction – while they claim the opposite.

    Russia is intentionally being provoked – can we possibly end 2015 without war?
    Islam is being coddled – will the killing of Christians increase or decrease?
    Debts are sky high – will any of these debts ever be paid?
    Morality is in the gutter – will people repent and turn back to God?

    We are reaping the whirlwind !

    Oh, I forgot about the 12 and 6 year olds shot by police or the 78 year old tasered by police or the 18000 swat team attacks or the 230 billion earmarked for military equipment for police forces or the billions of dollars of civil forfeit from honest citizens by our boys in blue while we end up black and blue. A lot of issues, mostly fabricated, are going to be used to divert attention from a rapidly crumbling economy and way of life in this country. By the way, anyone with money in IRA/401K’s ought to think about draining the money out from under gov’t control before THEY drain it out for you….as in MYRA schemes or worse. There is 15-20 Trillion in these accounts and the gov’t, wall street and the banks are determined to get it legally or illegally.

    Stephen Quayle: from king world news,
    “Most people focus primarily on three things: The stock market, phony economic data releases and Fed announcements. But the middle class was warned by Ross Perot in 1992. He said that ‘giant sucking sound’ was jobs going offshore. Since Perot issued that warning, the middle class has been systematically destroyed in the United States….
    “Eric, how many times have we heard consumer spending fuels the economy? Well, broke people can’t buy houses, feed their families, or take vacations.

    Meanwhile, in Europe we are seeing the results of militant Islam. The freedom of expression has died in Europe. We are now in the midst of a global revolution and uprising. What we are seeing is a total communist takeover. Life as we have known it is coming to an end.

    It’s also important to note that the Chinese are buying up all of the key assets, including real estate, that they can get their hands on in the United States. We saw the Japanese doing the same thing in the late 1980s. The big difference between Japan and China is that China now controls more physical gold than any other country in the world.

    Collapse Is Inevitable

    Meanwhile, in the West all of the markets are being manipulated by the central planners. But manipulation eventually results in madness and mayhem and a lot of dead people. It also results in extensive poverty. The chasm between the rich and the poor is now one of the largest in history. This growing disparity will eventually lead to anarchy and severe disruptions in the West.

    People must understand, when a nation divorces itself from a just measure of money and prints fiat money indiscriminately, its population becomes so indebted that collapse is inevitable.”

Sure their problems a large………… But the point missed is they could write volumes on the US problems if they chose……… I look at it in relative terms as every country has their problems now……….. Relatively speaking, our problems (financial) are 10X Chinas. Probably 20X Russia’s…………. Besides, everyone knows (MSM) it’s not acceptable to talk down the US. You might find yourself having an “accident”………. Even a French “accident”

    So How Will This Screwed Up World Be Put Out It’s Misery?

    “You are not in darkness, so that that day should overtake you as it would thieves.”—1 THESS. 5:4.

    Unseen developments are indicated in the following scriptures.

    1 Thessalonians 5:3
    Revelation 17:16
    Daniel 2:44

    What will help us to keep on the watch and cope with trials to come?

    EARTHSHAKING events will soon occur. The fulfillment of Bible prophecies confirms this fact, so we need to keep on the watch. What will help us to do that? The apostle Paul urges us to “keep our eyes . . . on the things unseen.” Yes, we need to bear in mind our reward of everlasting life, be it in heaven or on earth. As the context shows, Paul wrote these words to encourage fellow believers to focus on the happy outcome of their faithful course. Doing so would also help them to cope with trials and persecution.—2 Cor. 4:8, 9, 16-18; 5:7.

    EVENTS LEADING UP TO A TIME OF PEACE
    So, do the events that are yet unseen that we considered so far, lead us to a time period we will enjoy? Significant developments and earthshaking events are ahead of us. We look forward to seeing how the saying of “Peace and security!” will come about. Then we will witness the destruction of Babylon the Great, the attack by Gog of Magog, the battle of Armageddon, and the hurling into the abyss of Satan and his demons. After these events, when all wickedness is gone, we will enter a new chapter in life—Christ’s Millennial Reign, during which we will enjoy an “abundance of peace.”—Ps. 37:10, 11.

    And in addition to the five events we have examined so far, there are other “things unseen” on which we want to “keep our eyes. . .”

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-nPsrX05Rk
    Empires come and go and life will go on and will continue on, forever and forever. Be there to enjoy it! Prepare for the worst and expect the best,… outcome, . . . that is!

    Greg,

    Thanks again for your continuing effort to expose the truth.

    Yesterday I posted this comment on The Miles Franklin Blog and I thought I should post it here as well.

    The Two Elements of Society

    For many of us here we realize that we are in the Eleventh Hour.

    Great efforts have been undertaken to try and extend this Ponzi, but like all Ponzi Schemes they eventually all have to fall apart.

    To understand how we arrived at this Eleventh Hour we simply need to understand the following.

    Firstly, there is a group of Society that resides in Countries all over the World that walk through life trying to do the right thing by the people that pass through their lives.

    Then there is the other group that some would call the sociopaths that have little to no conscience.

    Their belief system or should I say lack of belief system has motivated them to work towards achieving positions of power.

    They have used these positions of power in order to enrich themselves. How they achieve this enrichment is of no consequence to them because all that matters to them is reaching their goals and massaging their egos.

    In the end that enrichment at the costs of others has been achieved simply because many have been lulled to sleep.

    So as we pass through the Eleventh Hour and enter the end game, that sleeping part of Society will awaken to a nightmare and that will likely be the turning point in our Society as we know it.

    The unsuspecting and unprepared will again pay the price, how they respond will bring on Chaos like we have never seen it I suspect.

    Thank You to people like yourself and the many others who have devoted significant time and effort to helping us understand.

    To those responsible for this raping of Society…I say this to you…

    When the day comes for you to meet your fate nothing will clean the tarnish off your souls.

    One final comment.

    Seldom are things as they appear to be today.
    MSM never ever tells the whole story.. Just a slanted 15 second bite of the events that unfold.

    Greg –

    Happy New Year to you and your family! By the way, there is something else to take into consideration here. Did you notice this attack came just a few days AFTER Hollande called for an end of Russian Sanctions, and a move by France to divest their lock-step standing with US? Think of what has happened to France this year as they have wavered in the proxy war.

    BNP Paribas fine, Total CEO mysterious death, overt hijacking of Saudi Prince on French thoroughfare to get documents of Saudi meeting with Russia, and now this attack when the Islamic world KNEW about this magazine for years.

    Economics finally reaches Socialist Hollande as he calls for end to sanctions
    http://www.examiner.com/article/economics-finally-reaches-socialist-hollande-as-he-calls-for-end-to-sanctions

    Was attack in France retribution for calling for end of Russian sanctions?
    http://www.examiner.com/article/was-attack-france-retribution-for-calling-for-end-of-russian-sanctions

    I posed a question recently to Dr. Jim WIllie… what if it is France who may be the first to try to leave the EU and Euro before Germany? He didnt disagree with me on the possibility of this in light of the fluidity of world events.

  31. Jerry

    Greg I was glad to see you mention the Bond Market going below 2.0 . This will be the next big story in 2015. We have several economic lines diverging into one main focal point
    ” the end of the petrodollar”.
    http://money.cnn.com/2015/01/06/investing/oil-price-stocks-market-bonds/index.html
    Do not for one second buy into the notion that Putin was blindsided by the takedown of the oil industry. I contend this is a setup for a checkmate scenario that is coming. When you play chess, checkmate is usually established by drawing your opponent in with several counterproductive moves. In other words baiting your opponent. Oblivious to the western cabal leaders, I believe the Chinese and Russians have been planning for this contingency for quite some time, an have positioned themselves to make a checkmate move once the pieces are in position.

    Lets be honest, who’s more likely to weather a global economic firestorm, a country sitting on a pile of paper, or a country sitting on a pile of rocks (gold) ? Its two for one. Take down our economy, and the military goes with it. That is unless you believe that soldiers fight for free?

  32. James Sullivan

    Greg, I usually find your statements / interviews to be balanced for the most part….but i think you are missing some of the backstory re the muslims. France has approx 5 million muslim , none of which have been offered French citizenship. Immigrants always search out neighborhoods of like ….language, food, and family are more comfortable when surrounded by similar immigrants. In North America, these immigrant ghettoes end up losing their cohesion as upward mobility allows the children to move out into the larger world of the main culture. In Toronto, the Kennsington district was first populated by the Italian immigrants, but after their children grew up, and left home, one could then see the next immigrant wave (Protugueese) move in and the ghettoe became more Portugueese in flavor.
    The muslims in France were like most immigrants…searching for a better life for their family etc. FRANCE, in its zenophobia (anything not French) did not offer these people the rights of citizenship ….and have created an intractable problem. Notwithstanding the small % who turn terrorist, most immigrants enrich their new homeland ….but not so much when they are treated as lower class non-citizens.

    • allen ols

      James S

      …then the muslims, try to change american law, to their shiriah law. When an immigrant comes to usa, they are required to pledge allegiance to the flag of the usa, period, and follow and learn all american laws. instead they flee their miserable countries/govmnts, founded on Islam, then try to set up the same miserable religion, law and govmnt, they fled in the first place. It is a cycle of misery.

      • Silence is Golden

        The radicalist elements have integrated and assimilated into western societies. France did not allow this and yet they are subject to attacks.

        They radicals are not unlike the seed planted in the ground. It will germinate and spread shoots after remaining dormant.

  33. Robert Burt

    Our people are having their eyes pried open, having to look at things they don’t want to see, having thoughts forced upon them which they prefer to reject or deny. Next comes the question of what to do about what they see. It will not be an easy question to answer. One problem I see is that we place too much trust in other people, some of whom we call leaders. Just my opinion.

  34. Patrick

    Thank YOU Greg. See ya on Monday.

  35. mohammad

    Greg,

    I talked about this in an older thread on your blog and i will mention it again here.

    Radical Islam is not the enemy, it is THE TOOL to unroot Islam completely from the face of earth.

    My statement here is supported by facts some of them you have JUST MENTIONED in your great wrap up, some of those facts are the support those extremists are getting from the west…!!!!

    Can any one explain to me like you explain it to a 4 year old kid (so i can get it) how in the world those two Yemenis that did the massacre in Paris managed to get to France when they are on the NO FLY LIST of US intelligence?????????

    http://news.yahoo.com/terror-suspects-in-charlie-hebdo-massacre-were-on-u-s—no-fly–list-212840229.html

    Or can any one explain to me how ALL the involved in 9/11 managed to SNEAK, yeah right… SNEAK their board cutters to the air planes and NONE of them managed to trigger any kind of alarm????????

    So in those two instances I can conclude unless i need MRI to my brain that SOMEONE CLOSED THE EYE when they were not suppose to.

    Who toppled a secular Shah and allowed KHUMAINI to lead the coupe de tat supported by the west financed by the west and from nothing but PARIS???????

    Who was Funding, training, arming terrorists in Afghanistan?

    Who Killed a secular leader (Saddam Hussain) who was known to be against radicalism to made Iraq breeding terrorism farm?

    Who let ISIS flourish in Iraq after the RELEASED top 5 fierce Alqaeda Lieutenants in exchange for a soldier that the navy seals involved in rescuing said he deserted his post?

    Who killed an anti radicalism and a secular leader (Qaddafi) to make Libya a breeding farm of terrorism, then funneling them through NATO MEMBER TURKEY to Syria to kill another secular leader who is FIGHTING TERRORISM (Assad) to make Syria another breeding ground of terrorism????

    That and many many instances that can clog the blog .

    But for what purpose?

    Why?

    That is the question that begs answers.

    And I claim I know the answer…!

    ISLAM IS WHAT TPTB wants to unroot, they created the RADICAL ISLAM to unroot Islam, no doubt in my mind about it and i furnished few facts up in my post including some you Greg mentioned in your wrap up.

    You know Greg how respectful I am to other beliefs, that does not prevent me from saying that Islam is the only obstacle standing in the face of TPTB to concur the world and enslave humanity, AND PLEASE NOTICE that this power of Islam that scares the CRAP OUT OF TPTB is NOT those maniacs who go shoot, kill innocent people like what happened in Paris, rather the power of islam that scares them is the humbleness sincerity LOVE compassion to other humans that true muslims carry in their hearts and in their actions that OPEN HEARTS. and that is what they fear the most.
    So what they do? they create, fund , facilitate, arm, finance TERRORISTS to unroot people like me an amy family and billions alike…!

    BUT IT AINT GONE WORK.

    Because the sun cannot be covered with dust.
    and truth will prevail.

    Sorry Greg, long post but i had to say my side of it.
    I will again say (me and my wife and kids) prayers to the innocent victims in this recent terrorist attack and ask god guidance and protection from evil acts and evil people.

    • jc davis

      Mohamad I agree there are a lot of unanswered questions concerning 911. It may well be to uproot the good Muslims .
      Is it true that Mohamed had a 6 year old child as a wife ? I saw a wedding video of Muslims marring kids/children. Hard to believe anyone would see this as a healthy / Loving religion Is it true?

      • jc davis

        Sorry for the misspell. Mohammed. Clearly I know very little about Mohammedism.

      • mohammad

        JC,

        I will assume a good faith in your question and not cunning mockery so i will answer:

        How old were most queens in Europe when they got married during old times?
        It is not unusual those days to have young marriages, and it was proven that the marriage from Aisha by the prophet peace be upon him was when she reached the puberty.
        Again let me stress on this and it will be the last time I talk about it,
        He married her when she was ready by GOD’S TERMS (that are in place throughout history for mankind to bear a child).
        What do i mean?
        If zionists for their agenda to depopulate decided to enforce the age of maturity to 18, and god knows later where it could be (20?, 22?…) that does not change the fact that the age of maturity is WHAT GOD DECIDED for man and woman and that is PUBERTY, so the boy is able to reproduce when he first have the ability to form the semen (please excuse me here am a physician and nothing wrong with using terms related to biology to explain the point) and for girls to be able to produce when they have their first period.
        GOD’s age of maturity is that biologic clock that tells the boy and the girl that they are ready to reproduce and keep the mankind.
        ZIONISM age of maturity is 18, to push marriage further later and depopulate (and it is not working by the way so they are thinking of more destructive methods to depopulate).
        So to summarize again:
        Prophet Mohammad peace be upon him DID NOT MARRY Aisha BEFOR MATURITY.
        Now if some one wants to poke at muslims and use this stupid reason to degrade the prophet (and please am not referring to you as one of them since as i mentioned earlier i assumed the good faith in your question) then they need to take that question to god and ask him why girls start their period at age of 9 warmer climates or age of 12 in colder ones and not like what the zionists want age 18.
        I do understand that in now terms and in our times laws are to be followed, so if it is 18 then be it, but during those times it was a common practice as long as she was NOT A CHILD, and SHE WAS NOT.

        Mohammad

        • JC Davis

          Mohamad so she was not 6 years old. I was told by a old friend the age 18 came from the wild west days of prostitution in America. The older ladys could not make enough money because the younger one got all the men. I will see if I can find the video I mentioned. This was a recent video of full grown men with young kids. Pretty sick to my mind.

            Am not sure why i should google for you guys, but you want to see and hear what pleases the hatred inside of you to muslims.
            I will do it again and i will do the job that you should of done to educate yourselves on the matter at hand, but am GETTING TIRED OF THIS PR ZIONIST CAMPAIGN:
            Girls in our culture dress like weds, it is the time they wait when their older sisters get married, so they put makeup and wear a wedding dress found and dance and sing like any flower girls.
            This wed you are referring to was HAMAS group wed after the zionists killed thousands of lives in Gaza, and it was in defiance of death to show the zionists that they cannot take the joy and happiness away.
            Those girls in this mass wedding are the sisters of the grooms or the brides and here is a link to the photo album to few of them, and it did not happen once but rather many many times.
            Every time the zionists kill scores of Muslims in Gaza the answer is weddings so they keep the Zionists at bay with the population balance.

            one mass wedding:

              Mohammad,
              You must be fair here. Hamas started the conflict. If fired rockets by the thousands into Israel. They did this from populated locations when wide-open areas exist outside of the Gaza cities. This was a military strategy to make sure of a high Palestinian body count, and to garner sympathy for this military action. If Hamas wanted to protect its people, they would gone to the farm ground and conducted their military campaign. You can use Google Earth and study Gaza to see what I mean: https:[email protected],34.3886928,70376m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x14fd844104b258a9:0x7e8955cbe285984e Zoom in and take a look at the at the Gaza border. It is marked by the “1950 Armistice Agreement line.” You will find lots of farm ground and open spaces in and around Gaza towns and cities to conduct war. This is the objective truth. By the way, when Palestinians complained to Hamas about how they were conducting war from Schools and hospitals and other populated areas, they were taken out into the streets and shot. About two dozen people were classified as “Israeli collaborators” and executed without trial. This was reported by multiple sources, including the New York Times. The Jews are not always the bad guys and Palestinians not always the victims. Lots of sin to go around and both sides have sins.

                Have you ever heard of a concentration camp as big as Gaza for as long as the years they have been besieged?

                  You were talking about were and the death of Palestinians unfairly killed by the Jews. I pointed out it was a strategy formulated by Hamas that brought on the more than 2,000 dead (mostly civilians.) This I might ad is a concentration camp with shopping malls farm ground and a pristine view of the Mediterranean Sea. Hamas spend billions on tunnels and weapons instead of schools, infrastructure and productive investment.

                    Gaza is anything but a pristine view of Mediterranean Sea.
                    They are slowely dying from hunger and diseases and all the world is participating.
                    You can put the blame on Hamas all day long and i may not disagree with you, but the people there are slowly killed by hunger , disease and besiege and quickly killed by the israeli’s war machines every few years.

                    Mohammad,
                    So, you have no reply to the fact that Hamas was responsible for conducting a military action designed to get a high civilian body count? (By the way this is a war crime and NOT genocide by Israel.) You have no answer to the murder of protesters who complained about conducting a war in this fashion? The people of Gaza elected Hamas, and there will never be another election. That is sad for the Palestinians who live there. The stated goal of Hamas is the destruction of Israel how can there be peace? Let’s agree to disagree on this and move on my friend.

                    Greg,
                    I do have a reply, and though it is getting tight here space wise but never mind it is worth the time and effort to expose the truth:
                    You have to know that Hamas leaders were in the southern lebanon camps with the leaders of Hizbullah after they were expelled by Israel, please keep it in the back drop because we are getting back to it.
                    Then after being together for years in the camp ISRAEL WILLINGLY ALLOWED THEM IN to the west bank and Gaza, they FULLY knew that their ideas was mixing with the Iranian’s that were hostile to Israel but YET THEY ALLOWED THEM IN.
                    That is important to remember to understand what WILL happen later.
                    in the ONLY ONE ELECTION held in west bank and Gaza that Israel allowed, and they FULLY know the mood of the street and fully know that HAMAS will win they let it happen to put a nail in the coffin of A PALESTINIAN STATE.
                    In a UNILATERAL move by Areal Sharon he withdrew from the GAZA to pit the IRANIAN Hamas against Fateh and to fully exploit this division to build more settlements and take more lands.
                    let me say it again, I am not fan of Hamas, HAMAS is the Iranian arm that Israel allowed in Gaza to blow the Palestinian state away for good. Israel played a chess move that ARAFAT KNEW…THEY KILLED HIM.
                    Do I expect a mercy on the Palestinians from Iran’s arm HAMAS…HELL NO, i am a witness to what they are doing in Syria now, 1 million dead and 9 million in the camps and the world is “WORRIED”.
                    Yes I have a reply and I know the history which leads me to understand the present and anticipate the future, am not an easy prey to the PR machines. and that is what makes me look into HISTORY A LOT.
                    Please forgive me Greg for the long post , God bless your heart for the tremendous exhaustive job you do but i had to say what i just did.

    Hi Greg,
    I thought you might use this as a cautionary tale. A French couple I have known over the years has taken every opportunity to point out the flaws and barbaric ways of America, especially in regards to our 2nd Amendment. Now with the rash of terrorism that has hit their city–they have made a belated turnaround pertaining to their objections to fire arms. Now they are singing the tune that “Life isn’t fair; its even worse when only the bad guys have the guns.” Reality is indeed a brutal taskmaster.

    Greg,

    With respect to many Muslim friends… because the Law is coded into Islamic Scripture, it is a bomb whose fuse can be lit whenever the time or motive comes. The many Muslims in the world who desire peace and harmony are admirable. Still because it is written for them, and available to be studied and used: the source material for radicalization is there. And since it is a Charter of both religious and governmental purpose: it sets the broad Arabic family (originally) to be the exclusive franchise of representing God to the world, and governance for the Human Race. I can only say, that my idea of God is One that respects individual sovereign will for matters of Faith; and Self-defense for practices of morality.
    As far as arming “moderate Muslim” fighters: this is a farce. Genesis 16:12,13. “And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard of thy affliction. And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” IF you ARM one: you arm THEM ALL. Nothing will degrade the cohesion that Islamic identity bestows. Obama MORE THAN SYMPATHIZES with his father’s Islamic roots.

    The Scope of Nature reveals the scope of Man’s confusion and greed. Man is building another Tower of Babbel, in an economic/governmental sense: and nobody is going to get their mind around it. Their purpose in building it will go on… until it falls. And fall – it will. The last Tower (or monolith), so to speak, will be a pure and absolutely imposed governmental/religious (One World) one, rising out of the rubble soon to come.

    • Charles H.

      Please allow me to be a little more, ah specific… When I mention “arming one” – I mean that of the situation in the Middle-East. In respect to those muslims who are educated and peaceable – I do not mean to lump them in with those who embrace violence. My observation is to draw attention to the fact that practically all the arms sent over there, supposedly for the ‘moderates’ – end-up in the hands that war against the West.

    Bank of America Warns of ‘Lethal’ Damage to China’s Financial System as Deflation Deepens
    ‘Deflation, Devaluation, and Default’ loom in China this year. The denouement for Shanghai’s bourse will not be pretty, says the US bank.
    by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard
    The Telegraph

    China is at mounting risk of a financial crisis this year as growth sputters and deflationary pressures trigger a wave of defaults, Bank of America has warned.
    The US lender told clients that a confluence of forces are coming together that threaten to chill the speculative mania on the Shanghai stock exchange and to expose the underlying fragility of China’s $26 trillion edifice of debt.
    “A credit crunch is highly probable,” said the bank in a report entitled “Deflation, Devaluation, and Default”, written by David Cui and Tracy Tian.

Relatively speaking, our problems (financial) are 10X Chinas. Probably 20X Russia’s…………. Besides, everyone knows (MSM) it’s not acceptable to talk down the US.

      I not sure I follow your logic here my friend.
      In this article it also talks about, and I quote – “President Xi trying to stamp out moral hazard and wean the country off excess credit”. Well I don’t see a whole lot wrong with this policy and indeed this is exactly what the US has failed to do and look where it has got them. In the mean time the US has also exported its manufacturing sector to China and destroyed the vast majority of its social capital.
      In this stouch I’ll bet on the economic alliance of China and Russia and the rest of the BRIC’s who are sick and tired of the US’s reckless and destructive financial and diplomatic behavior.
      From where I stand I see the BRICs with a big hand full of trump cards and the US with none. They had the joker [the reserve currency] but they are using this to win the first trick – they will lose every other trick. People around the world have finally realized that without it’s reserve currency status the US will be powerless to persist with its global bullying and hegemony and they are in well into the process of undermining this status.
      Best wishes to you Allen.

      Apparently You and I and a few others have a false understanding of the real events of WW2. Check out the below link.

      http://www.sott.net/article/291166-Yatsenyuk-rewrites-WWII-history-Soviets-invaded-Germany-and-Ukraine

      According to the Neo-Nazi Ukrainian Prime Minister and fondly referred to as ‘Yats’ by Victoria Nuland, and no doubt highly respected by Kerry and Obama, we all have our history on WW2 completely wrong. It was Russia who invaded Germany in during WW2 just as they invaded the Ukraine.
      Oh but ‘Yats’ – you forgot to mention Crimea, according to the the Ukraine PTB and the global MSM narrative they were also invaded by Russia in 2014.

      Cheers

      Word is that ‘Yats’ gets on fabulously with Kerry.

    I doubt that the French attack was actually at it first appears to be.

    Greg,

    When you mention “Islamic terrorism” please consider the following possibility..

    “…what is unfolding today is, not a war on terrorism to defend freedom, but a war on freedom that requires the defense of terrorism…” – G. Edward Griffin, “The Chasm, The Future Is Calling (Part One)”
    http://www.freedomforceinternational.org/pdf/futurecalling1.pdf

    Creating an enemy to instill fear in the public in order to more easily manipulate them is a common and very reliable political tactic that has been used throughout history but which absolutely nothing to do with religion. The use of the presstitute phrase “Islamic terrorism” is beneath you, in my opinion.

    • Greg Hunter

      Rick,
      I put on information I can source. I know many think latest attack in Paris is some sort of false flag CIA operation. I cannot state that as fact without a source. What I can say without question is the U.S. and it’s allies armed al-Qaeda in Syria. Congress just voted a few months ago to give lethal aid to theses so-called “rebels.” I am not disputing G. Edward Griffin as he is probably correct, but I cannot make accusations without sources. That is also beneath me as well. I put on information I can stand on and source. I have no problem allowing opinionated comments on this site. Plenty of folks opinions turn out to be correct. I do have a problem with people stating opinion as a verified fact. Thank you for your comment.
      Greg

      • Rick Perkins

        The whole issue reminds me of Hillary’s verifiable and factual lie that Islam’s religion was the reason for the terrorist attack at Benghazi, but this time with a cartoon used in place of a movie to arouse hatred against those who follow that religion.

        I understand and appreciate your efforts to present verified and factual information here. That’s why yours is near the top of my list of sites visited every day it’s also exactly why I took issue with headline “Islamic Terror” affirming, as if in fact, the blame for this incident of terror is to be laid squarely on the religion of Islam.

        I truly appreciate all that you do in trying to bring us truth, even when doing so is going against the prevailing winds.
        -Rick

      • Mason

        Greg, in this instance I have to agree with Rick.

        First of all my compliments to you for pointing out for a long time that the US and their allies are arming Al Quaeda in Syria. Without you, I would not be aware of that. So thank you for that. As an objective journalist, you are right to put out only information you can stand on and source. I think that you do an excellent job in that regard, generally speaking.

        But when you state that radical Islam is the problem, and that 160 million people (10% who fall in this category) are wackadoodles, can you source that or is that your opinion?

        I am not saying I disagree with your opinion (you could be right or wrong, I personally just don’t know and I don’t have a strong opinion on this). My point here is that it is not true that you only state facts and not opinions. Am I correct?

        This leads up to my second, and bigger point. I know you respect G. Edward Griffin and appreciate and understand that you are “not disputing him as he is probably correct”, but Griffin is not saying that the Paris or similar attacks are due to some sort of false flag CIA operation. I don’t know if that is what you are saying, but if that is the case, then I would say that would be slopping thinking on your part. What Griffin is saying is that terrorism is a distraction for deeper issues. Both hawks and doves are playing into the hands of those who are using the conflict for their own hidden agendas.
        I think Griffin adheres to the Problem–>Reaction–>Solution scenario:
        Problem (arming al Quaeda in Syria and creating blowback in the form of terrorist attacks) –> Reaction (people such as yourself pointing out that radical Islam is the problem) –> Solution (install camera’s, militarization of the police, surveillance drones etc) scenario.

        In this sense, I am saddend to say that you are playing your part in this scenario problem–>reaction–>solution scenario.

        I think the manipulation of the mainstream media press and in some cases the alternate press is the bigger story here.

        I think that instead of stating your opinion that radical muslims are the problem and that 160 million people are wackadoodles (or do you have sources for that?), you would be better served in stating the (better documented) opinion that terrorism is being used to declare war on freedom (as Rick above points out when he refers to Griffin).

        I love your work and your site, and I am really not trying to give you a hard time, but this just has to be said.

        • Greg Hunter

          Mason,
          You said, “But when you state that radical Islam is the problem, and that 160 million people (10% who fall in this category) are wackadoodles, can you source that or is that your opinion?” I clearly said “Let’s just say 10% . . .” I used a small percentage to illustrate the size of a potential problem. If I said, “Let’s just say 1%.” That would be 16 million. Either way it is a very big problem and Muslims around the world aught to be condemning this kind of attack. The only major head of state I know of that is condemning Muslim attacks is Egyptian President Sisi.
          Greg

          • Mason

            Greg, you are correct on multiple counts:

            1) You indeed clearly said “let’s just say that 10%….” After listening a second time I noticed that. In retrospect I should have have been more careful in phrasing what I exactly said. So I do apologize for that.
            2) I think you are correct in that a huge number of muslims (in absolute terms) are radicalized. And that is indeed a big problem (although Western policy and the sociopaths in government can take a big part of the blame for that).
            3) You are also correct that all muslims around the world should be condemning this attack. I did not know that only Egyptian president Sisi was the only one who did that. So that is a very good point you make as well.

            That said, this does not diminish what I explain in my post above (and what Griffin says) that these terror attacks and the war on terrorism are being used to wage a war on freedom and are being used to implement the Police State. I don’t have to tell you that: you know that! If this continues, this will be like 911 and the Patriot Act all over again, but in this case for Europe. That is the absolute last thing we need!

            The only thing I am trying to say is that you should not only address the problem of the radicalized muslims, which you rightly do. But you should also address this other – I think even bigger – problem as well. I didn’t see you do that, therefore I had to mention this.

            That’s all. I know you give multiple great scoops in the WNW every week for me at least and I also realize that you can’t cover everything in 15 minutes of WNW.

            Anyway, just my input, just my two cents, you can do with it what you want.

            Sincerely all my best wishes to you and keep up the excellent work! 🙂

    It seems Russia, the Saudi’s, China, and most of the rest of the world … are joining together to hurl the evil Cabal down into the abyss where Satan and his other demon sociopaths reside!

    All the Cabal’s sociopaths (without conscience or morals) are presently killing innocents in a flurry of false flag operations … to try and bail themselves out of the certain fate that awaits them … but once their Tower of Babble [their world fiat empire] crumbles … and the fiat paper they print (with their Illuminati symbols) is no longer accepted as legitimate payment for anything of value … the people, the politicians and even the military they control with their fiat … will all “Stand Down” and not take orders from the Cabal anymore.

    This is why it is vitally imperative that the evil Cabal do everything in their power to keep the fiat Ponzi Scheme going … to do so however will likely require many more false flags … to take “the focus off” the fact that they will likely need $100 quadrillion more paper dollars to keep their Ponzi Scheme going … but printing more and more fiat simply pushes the Cabal’s “matrix money” closer and closer to the “worthlessness” they fear the most … as worthless fiat takes “their power over others” away from them!!

    Thus the intense hatred by the Cabal for “unencumbered” money like gold and silver … and is why they fight and fight to push gold and silver down … but people have awakened to the fraud … and even with the US dollar rising people are buying millions and millions of silver coins … they see what the Fed has done since 1913 … sucking the value out of the US dollar to such an extent that it is now worth only 2 cents in purchasing power! … the Cabal’s hubris and immoral acts they do for greed and power is insatiable but won’t last much longer … for the world has awakened!!

  46. Karen

    Just a great weekly wrap up Greg. So much of what you talked about really resounded with me, but none more than your reference to Al Sharpton. I lived in New York during the Tawana Brawley debacle and 25 years later the mention of Al Sharpton’s name still infuriates me. How can people forget the fraud he helped perpetrate and the misery he caused to completely innocent people? How any human being can consider him anything other than a race-baiting, despicable, loud-mouthed thug is mind blowing. This so-called “reverend’s” only contribution to this country has been to cause even more racial division, distrust and anger. Sorry for the rant, but even the mention of his name makes my blood boil, and to hear that he has been to the White House 80 times, and that so many other people are unwilling or unable to discern his true character, even though he does little to hide it, leaves me little hope for this country.

    I also have one of those 50 trillion Zimbabwe dollar notes framed and hanging in my office. I have had it for several years as a constant reminder to myself of where our US currency is headed. I also have some wonderful cartoons of $100 dollar bills being used as rolls of toilet paper, also not an exaggeration.
    I wholeheartedly agree with Donna about Pope Francis, and I’m a ultra-conservative Catholic. There is something sinister about environmentalism being cleverly used by Western governments and religion to destroy our economic system, perhaps to replace it with a one-world economic, political, and spiritual entity. Strange times indeed, and I think we ain’t seen noth’in yet!

    Greg, Paris is just the tip of the iceberg what Islam has in store for us. Dirty pictures, drugs, alcohol, fast women, and free welfare money won’t change their plans, they will not be westernized or Americanize no matter what our greedy government believes; they will not be bought off by appeasement; but I know appeasement will go forward because this country has lost it will for the truth and feel secure that they can buy everything and everyone.

    Hi Greg,
    Happy New Year.

    I’m incredulous in listening to Obama seemingly goad Putin and the Russian nation. He is admitting to economic warfare against Russia? This is crazy. Not too long ago, I was equally incredulous in listening to Obama insult Putin, along with the Russian nation. Does the American political establishment really want war with nuclear armed Russia? Haven’t they read their history about those who went up against Russia on their territory? ( Napoleon, Hitler). I’ve read the biographies of the statesmen during the Cold War. Who are the giants of today? Our president has his picture taken with a group of school girls while wearing a tiara.

    God help this country of ours!

    There’s always something interesting going on here at USA Watch Dog. No doubt the west’s security forces are using the ol’ fear game to panic and herd the public with the events in France. Personally, I’d be more worried about surviving and traffic stop in America than having a run in with a terrorist, real or FBI synthetic. Any terrorists strike, real or synthetic, will be stopped just like 9/11 was as the hit is much more usable than the save. The French event was a warning to keep France in line after Hollande last Monday went against an imperial prime directive by stating the sanctions against Russia must end. That’s a big one. Retribution was swift so there’d be no misunderstanding with the Hebdo killings on Wednesday. Not as severe as I would have thought but on short notice it was a strong enough message; unlike in Norway which because it pulled out of it’s active bombing mission of Libya and also perhaps it’s failure to make its national sovereign fund available to the banksters they suffered two downtown bombing and the mass murder of the ruling party’s teens and young adults. Other examples of the demonstration of raw cold power as warnings abound. MH17 may not have had the desired results in the frame and blame game but the room sure went quiet with that display of what can happen on anyone’s flight.

    Enjoyed the week here at USA WD and look forward to what will appear here in the future.

    Thank you for the insights Greg.
    Lies rule in this one world, for the power that corrupts. David Morgan stated ‘truth will prevail’, as that is a slow motion movie, and that is a good thing, as ‘chaos goes before change’ you prefer a slow motion movie not to see it getting out of hand too much. ‘Divide and rule’ is all over the place, in many aspects of all the systems shaping this world. I have reasons to belief, see, and recognize good forces opposing evil forces, kind of a battle between good and evil, an Armageddon unfolding in many elements in all the systems all over the globe.
    Rumour goes that the brother of former president Bush was involved with installing security systems in the twin towers, as well the rumours tell the suspicion that his company installed explosives, which enforced the implosion of the twin towers.

    As far there is a global network of good guys, they are all over the place, infiltrated all over the place, witnessing what evil forces are doing, at some moments sabotaging evil developments, which are getting too much out of hand, but mostly only watching as they become bearers of knowledge, bearers of the truth, which hopefully one day gets injected into the world, step by step. The propaganda of evil forces is dominating main stream, but the work of good forces is in this world, not getting too much attention though, like the alternative news on the financial system. The score of lies is inflating, ruling this world. The truth is out there, waiting for a massive inflation in a very slow step by step process, hoping to crush the lies, to crush the work of evil forces. The truth is in the shadows, waiting for enlightening. Extremes are building up, as the drum beats of chaos are rambling up at times. A fight between Good and Bad on the horizon.

    When first man got inspired by the spiritual source he translated it into wishful thinking, being God a man like him, God being the entity of absolute power, and speaking in that name transfers that power onto him. The spiritual source, the spirit world saw that one coming. So the reaction was ‘to divide and rule’, as no religion should become the only and dominant one. The spirit world inspired the man Jesus Christ (JC) knowing the story would get altered for the power, in a world ruled by lies. Well before JC there was Mythras, of which was said the same characteristics as JC, born out of a virgin, walking over water, etcetera, as that’s a sun legend out of ancient Egypt, which got glued upon JC as well. The prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him, pbuh) got inspired by the spirit world, which knows that this world is ruled by lies, as power corrupts, leading to the altering of the story about the man Mohammed (pbuh), and his spiritual speeches. It wouldn’t surprise me a bit that good forces inspired evil forces to boost Islamic extremism, just to letting a replay of history having its course, a clash of religions, to vaporize them in it. The west pretty much hammered some Islamic countries for some decades, which grows anger, boosting radicalisation. Islam came 700 years later, as this time shift was engineered by the spiritual source in the divide and rule principle, as no altered spiritual story (religions) should take the dominating root in this world, keeping the debate about the spiritual truth going, not to fade in time. Nowadays Islamic extremism is the mirror of the Vatican’s history, and her Inquisition, as Islam came late to that barbaric party, as she is 700 years younger. In the divide and rule mechanism the spiritual source/world awaited Islamic extremism, as 911 was a manifestation of that, nowadays version of the barbaric Catholic Inquisition, of which many think it was co-orchestrated from the west. The arising of ISIS co-orchestrated by the west a very thinkable scenario. Religions opt for the Kingdom of God, and they advocate the road to that, or the opposite, as fear got used in religions as well, fear is a bad advisor, which fear for the religious hell idea is.

    JC advocated against the views of the ruling religious elites, as the Jews are skilled lobbyists, they got him executed by the Roman Pilatus, as masses died on a cross. JC stated ‘the Kingdom of God is within you’, as he couldn’t deny the single God idea at the time, which Moses launched in competition with the Egyptian belief system, demonising the Egyptian culture, demonization not new in this world. ‘The Kingdom of God is within you’, as every soul can open up for Love, which boost the creative abilities on every element of the spiritual and physical aspects of life. Love boosts creativity, which then feels divine, as that ability is in every soul.

    As Bix Weir points to ‘the road to roota’ comics, on a Federal Reserve site, as a double clutch story, truth is encrypted in it. Like according Bill Still in his documentary ‘the secret of OZ’ claims the writer of ‘the Wizard of OZ’ encrypted some truth about the financial system. As far that’s true, one could see good forces doing that. The sun travels through the 12 months (disciples), as from December the 21st the sun stands still for ‘3 days’, then resurrects on December the 25th, which got inserted as JC’s birthday, Christmas, the festivity of the Light of Love. Encrypted truth got inserted on many places by good forces among the evil ones. The spiritual truth at first sight is not sexy compared to religious fairy tales. The sun legend was thought of as an analogue for reincarnation, which was the feeling of the ancient Egyptians. The ancient Egyptians were spirited people as they received thought visions from the spiritual source to co-assist in building the old pyramids, which are still standing as 1 of the 7 world wonders.

    JC reincarnated back as JFK on the political stage. When time is ripe, as timing is everything, JC will enter the spiritual stage once again. Mankind was making war anyway, so the spirit world/the spiritual source seeded religions, which became an ingredient in that warfare, just to unravel it one day with the spiritual truth, as truth will prevail, setting free this imprisoned world. When could be the timing for JC’s entrance on the spiritual stage? Of JC is expected to boost a change in this world, as chaos goes before change, it could be after the chaos has arrived, and the world is rethinking her systems, including the belief system in the new world arising from the ashes of chaos. One man can’t change the world, but good forces, bearing all kinds of truths are waiting in the shadows, until the era of enlightening arrives, as the truth can free an imprisoned world.

    JC’s spirit occupied the physical body of the prophet Mohammed (pbuh), as it was all element of the divide and rule strategy to deal with ruling lies altering the original spiritual stories for the power, which corrupts. Mohammed (pbuh) lived in barbaric times, where they slaughtered each other for an insult, which is just words. Mohammed (pbuh) halted that, as by that he became the first fighter for freedom of speech, not slaughtering each other for just words. Mohammed (pbuh) would halt Islamic extremists, as they kill over just words, as he did back then.

    It’s a battle between Good and Bad. The drum beats of chaos are rambling up at times, walking the edge.

    ‘The (Kingdom of Love) God is within you’. Love is the biggest treasure which joys you in this one world, and the spirit world after this one.
    ‘Gather your treasures on earth, and in heaven’, as Love is the biggest treasure of all.

    May the view of the founding fathers of America one say go viral in this world, and Love be the Dictator.

    • brian

      Yeah, you know what though; when we give sober consideration to the kind of off the wall crap “governments” around the world get caught doing and allowing to happen I consider the wild conspiracy theories to be a most welcome example of erring on the side of caution. I mean why should we give the benefit of the doubt to proven sex offenders, malcontents, absolute freaking scum bags and sociopaths who also happen to be congenital liars that cannot give a straight answer to a question as simple as one regarding what time of the day it is. So some guy who baths only once a month using hippie soap and believes that by wearing a hat made of aluminum foil he is effectively repelling nefarious influences beamed to him from the outer reaches of the solar system dares to voice his views regarding what he thinks may be going on–is this same guy dumping fluoride in your water under the outrageous and preposterous pretense that it is good for your teeth? Is the Cuckoo conspiracy theorist looking at your wealth and salivating, trying to devise ways to simply strip you of it and leave you to die in a ditch? Is the tin foil warrior out there instigating conflict that could threaten to upend any semblance of stability left on the geopolitical map? You should aim your little pee shooter at the real enemy here and not be so engrossed with chastising and pillorying the harmless ideas of people who are prudently suspicious of the intentions of those who presume to have power over us and seek to direct how the fruits of our labor are to be used and spent.

      Quite frankly I think these people you obviously view as idiots do more to maintain the civil society than any guy who sits around making sure everything he thinks and does is neatly couched within the bounds of “moderate” and “measured” and “reasonable” behavior all while blindly consuming all the shit and crap being served to us all on a daily basis intended to make us stupid little servants to a outright abomination.

    Got in late on the discussions, so not sure if anyone is here. The economy according to Jim Rickard’s has produced about 3 cents of GDP for every Dollar printed, and the M2 money velocity is in a steeper nose dive than it was in the 1929 great depression. So even though the Fed. may follow Japan’s example, it will do know good. Jim gives pretty good evidence that what ever the fed. does a total collapse will happen. It’s just, what event will set it off. I seen that a muslim contended a little about future events according to the Quran. There Jesus is not the christrian’s Jesus. The Christian’s Jesus is co-equal with God the father, there Jesus is a prophet of Ali. The bible does teach that Jesus will return at the battle of armageddon to set of the millennial raine of Christ for a thousand years. He destroys the armies by, his word, and judges the sheep and goat nations. Those who are alive at that time, who have saving faith, go into the kingdom, while the goats, them who do not have saving faith, are cast into the lake of fire. So plainly put the muslims have the wrong Jesus. I noticed today Lord Monkin out of the UK warning that Obama will sell the US out a the UN summit this fall by allowing US citizen’s to pay a carbon tax, recognizing the UN as the global government. Folks we’re living out bible prophecy by the day. The Lord is on the verge of returning.

    I’m a Canadian and as such, I have a somewhat different perspective on life when compared to my American neighbor. But as a Canadian, there has always been one aspect of the American life that enticed a certain enviousness. Namely, that strong sense of identity Americans have that belonging to a great country meant more than life itself. But after listening to your many interviews Greg and reading countless number of comments, I’m left with a gut drenching feeling that something corrupt is eroding the American founding father’s dream. So I have to say, that sense of enviousness is all but gone in me. What say you my American friends?

    Greg, the parallels between what led to WWII and what is happening now are absolutely amazing. Japan invaded China in the early 1930’s which upset the US, which led to the US putting sanctions on Japan. One of the last sanctions prior to the attack on pearl harbour was oil related. You can read it for yourself right here in the section titled “Japanese Views”.

  63. Don from Oklahoma

    To Aurele; I noticed your post and wanted to comment. There is great sadness I feel writing this. I’m over 60, and the foundation that our nation was built on, it’s Christian heritage, the constitution and bill of rights, are all in danger. Most of our leaders since the 1940’s or 50’s though starting out as a small percent have now gone to bed with the globalist. In 1944 the league of nation’s came into being with a global plan of creating a One world government. It latter became the UN, with the same ambition. In 1913 on Jeckell Island off the coast of Mass. the federal reserve was created which gave a private banking cabal the control of our money supply. The banking cabal, was able to control inflation, deflation, war, industry, military, and our leaders through growth of wealth flowing through the hands of the oligarcy, which were themselves the private shar holders of the Federal Reserve, and enrich the politicians that changed the law’s, so greater wealth and power was shuffled into there hands, while the poor and middle class suffered. They would cause years of prosperity, only to shuffle assets back in to their hands using a capitalistic system. Then over a period of time, the politicians were chosen by them, even though the people voted, the media and money, owned by these people would only allow a candidate of there choosing to win, It didn’t matter which one won, both were owned by them. This has created a shadow government within our government. All along the UN developed it’s own global government framework. You can see it by going to UN home page. So the American people have now for decades, been controlled by these globalist through there ever growing web of industrial complex, and central bank expansion around the world. There is only about 3 countries left that do not have a central bank. Syria, Iran, and North Korea. The Technicrats of the Europian Union are an unelected governing body of all of Europe. This is were the world is heading. It is through international treaties, that the world is being divided up into trading blocks, the newest is the bric nations euroasian block, were Russia and China are the big players. Now that the world has been divided up into these trade blocks, the UN is seeking to take its place as each nation gives its own sovereignty over to the UN. Our leaders will one day soon, including Canada as part of the NAFA block give yours and my nation’s sovereignty to the UN. Right now the UN and many nation’s leaders are trying to get the nation’s leaders to levy tax money from there population’s to the UN. This will be a totalitarian world government.

    JFK got murdered after he signed executive order 11110, making silver money again, which Lydon Johnson sent to the dustbin of history. Before JFK died he made some speeches, of which are said these lead to his death. In this one JFK warns for what’s going on the past decades in Washington DC. JFK warns, among other topics, for conspiracies, not forgetting to learn from mistakes, etecetera. ‘The truth is out there’, this JFK speech only got 5000 hits, like Bill Still’s ‘Secret of OZ’ only got some 2.000 hits on YouTube, while it deserves a couple of billion. ‘The truth is out there’, just hoping to get viral one day. Conspiracy thinkers are getting ridiculed, but JFK being in the know, warned for it.

    Hi guys
    I am relatively new to Greg’s great blog here.
    I have a sophomoric question.
    IF we have a complete economic global collapse? How do we protect any assets we have?
    Cash, precious metal coins? Do we sit on equities and wait for recovery?

    • Greg Hunter

      Diane,
      You need some actual cash on hand it will work really well for a short period of time. (3 weeks to 3 months) You will need all sorts of tangible assets. This includes even the basic things such as food and water. You also need clear title property, this includes your vehicles and you need precious metals. This is NOT a trade. It is an insurance/wealth preservation play. You can wait to time the market only to find that at the lowest price there is no physical metal or the commissions have skyrocketed. Or, you can buy now and hold your position no matter what. SIPC has around $2 billion in the fund and there is no line of credit to the Treasury. If your brokerage goes down I’d say your money is toast. I think there are going to be some brokerages that will go under in the next calamity as well as some very big banks. I would not want to be in paper assets when this next “leveling’ occurs. That’s my thumbnail sketch of how you should be thinking but I am not a money manager of investment advisor.

    Greg,

    This is a post relying to your question:

    {{{{{{{{{Mohamad,
    Help me out here please. When I put this question in Google: “Does the Koran really say Jews and Christians should be killed?”
    I get: “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks. . . Surah 4:89″

    The translation below the Surah said, “If Jews and Christians reject Islam, this says to capture them and kill them, wherever they are.”

    Is this misquoted from the Koran? Isn’t this why Islamic extremists are killing Christians? I am not giving you a hard time. Can you give your take?
    Greg}}}}}}}}}}}}}

    First off there is a rule that applies to any textual document, and that is :
    If you take a part of it outside the context of the whole you go astray, miss the whole point and worse, if a decision is based on misinformation results can be devastating.

    That Surat you referred to is سورة النساء (surat number 4) translation is the “verse of women”, that particular verse shows the utmost respect Islam has to women and the utmost protection of women’s rights in all aspects of life.

    The particular Ayat (number 89, hence 4:89″) you referred to are NOT RELATED to Jews nor to Christians, actually if you read the one before and one after you get a good idea about the CONTEXT,

    The Aya before is number 88,
    {فَمَا لَكُمْ فِي الْمُنَافِقِينَ فِئَتَيْنِ وَاللَّهُ أَرْكَسَهُمْ بِمَا كَسَبُوا أَتُرِيدُونَ أَنْ تَهْدُوا مَنْ أَضَلَّ اللَّهُ وَمَنْ يُضْلِلِ اللَّهُ فَلَنْ تَجِدَ لَهُ سَبِيلًا (88)}
    Translation:
    “What is [the matter] with you [that you are] two groups concerning the hypocrites, while Allah has made them fall back [into error and disbelief] for what they earned. Do you wish to guide those whom Allah has sent astray? And he whom Allah sends astray – never will you find for him a way [of guidance].”

    The Aya that follows the one you quoted is number 90:
    {إِلَّا الَّذِينَ يَصِلُونَ إِلَىٰ قَوْمٍ بَيْنَكُمْ وَبَيْنَهُمْ مِيثَاقٌ أَوْ جَاءُوكُمْ حَصِرَتْ صُدُورُهُمْ أَنْ يُقَاتِلُوكُمْ أَوْ يُقَاتِلُوا قَوْمَهُمْ ۚ وَلَوْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ لَسَلَّطَهُمْ عَلَيْكُمْ فَلَقَاتَلُوكُمْ ۚ فَإِنِ اعْتَزَلُوكُمْ فَلَمْ يُقَاتِلُوكُمْ وَأَلْقَوْا إِلَيْكُمُ السَّلَمَ فَمَا جَعَلَ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ عَلَيْهِمْ سَبِيلًا}
    Translation:
    “Except for those who take refuge with a people between yourselves and whom is a treaty or those who come to you, their hearts strained at [the prospect of] fighting you or fighting their own people. And if Allah had willed, He could have given them power over you, and they would have fought you. So if they remove themselves from you and do not fight you and offer you peace, then Allah has not made for you a cause [for fighting] against them.”

    So it is about the Hypocrites, (and not the JEWS, nor the CHRISTIANS) that are conspiring and fighting and in certain timeline killed muslims, so in brief the 3 Ayats , the one you quoted and the two that precedes and follows all stress one thing and that is :
    IF SOME ONE FIGHTS YOU, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO FIGHT BACK.
    And that is RIGHT.

    Again:
    It is very very important to take the whole context and not to snatch a part out of it and conclude.

    I hope i made my point clear.
    Thanks any way for asking and thanks for listening.

  70. dee garmon

    It indeed is, Greg. The explanation, however, is simple : As the joke goes” Putin is playing
    chess against the (5) so called Western leaders simultaneously and winning it”.
    Our self declared leaders know only too well how to sell out to multinationals in order to get elected in the first place, and collect rewards after retiring from public service afterwards. As such, they are very jealous of Putin’s popularity and will do anything in
    their power to destroy it even at the detriment of their own respective countries.

    Greg,

    Here is an interview between O’Riley and dr. Zuhdi Jasser.

    http://www.foxnews.com/transcript/2015/01/12/is-this-it-for-islam/

    in this interview after O’Riley gives the guy a pat on the back and a certificate of “GOODNESS” ( as if the guy needs his certificate) , he goes to say what strengthen’s my theory:
    “I think you are going to pay a personal price. I think people have had enough with the Muslims. ”
    So here on a national TV where a lot of people tune to (they still do more than alternative media) and inflames emotions against a guy he describes as a “GOOD MAN”.
    That drum beat is NOT AT RANDOM.
    And i think it is a shame that an anchor watched by many plays a role in inflaming emotions against Muslims.

    Let me see if I have this right. These radical Muslims won’t be happy until all the infidels are eliminated and all that is left are the true believers in Allah, Mohammed, and governed by Sharia Law. So, they have all been dispatched to cleanse the earth, so to speak. This is because Islam is the only true religion and the prophet Mohammed, who popped up out of the desert long after Christ was here, is THE ONE!! Let’s surmise for a moment, albeit a scary moment. that someday they are successful in their mission. Then what? Look at their homelands and the progress they have made in just the few thousand years that they have been there. What great strides or accomplishments can they point to, except the fact that they had the good fortune to be sitting atop trillions of barrels of oil. They treat everyone, except royalty, with disdain, especially the females. People are publicly stoned, beheaded, and beaten, for minor infractions, and for the more serious ones…. there’s bombings. We are told time and time again that Islam is a peaceful religion, who rarely fights with each other and only kills people, for mocking their prophet. Makes sense. (Sarcasm) What a wonderful world this would be should the Muslims take over and everyone is finally on the same page. Submission is what their religion is all about, according to a few of their Imams. Plain and Simple.

      Algebra is still the arabic name of الجبر one of the sweet spots of Arab Muslims that all aspects of life are benefiting from now and then.

      Zero, is the invention of Muslims, Romans did not KNOW IT. and besides your friends at the federal reserve bank that are making a very good use of it non of the computer developments nor any development at all would of taken place without it.

      When your ancestor in EUROPE (am not sure where the heck are you from any way) were cutting the limbs because of a minor infection of it , muslim doctors were treating those diseases, kings and queens of EUROPE were KISSING THE FEET of Arab Muslims to treat their beloved patients and they were bragging about how many muslim doctor they had in their palaces.

      When IBN SEENA wrote his book in medicine it was the core of universities in EUROPE for hundred of years after his death.

      Do I go to the achievements in physics, cosmos, math, poetry………… I will clog the blog

      If you are ignorant go and get some education , nothing wrong with educating your self before going on the offensive and blame Mossad’s, CIA’s trainees’ atrocities on muslims.

      So sad

      This site is losing what attracted me to it, and that is DIALOGUE, all i can smell is hatred here, I feel stranger in this place that once was home.
      If those long posts i put there on this thread did not suffice then nothing will.

        Mohammad,
        All that you say is true. Also, many Nobel Prize winners in the modern era are Muslim.

        Mohammad:
        Thank you for that information, it was very interesting. I didn’t know any of that. I’ll admit that I am ignorant when it comes to the history of the Middle East. This was by choice. I had very little interest in anything to do with that area of the world, except for the price of oil. I’ll also admit that my only exposure comes from the news outlets. I only recently began paying attention after the USS Cole incident in Yemen. I barely remember the first WTC bombing. I had other things on my mind at that time and if it didn’t happen in my back yard, I wasn’t interested. I’m sorry if you extracted hatred from my comment. I do not hate, it takes too much energy and is counterproductive. I do however have a propensity to dismiss anyone who thinks they can commit crimes, at will, on innocent people because they do not agree with them. You were correct in mentioning the fact that my ancestors may have violently settled disputes, with a proclivity toward the Claymore. They attacked and killed each other and their neighbors almost on a daily basis. However, they outgrew it.

          RTW,

          Glad to read you sincere words and it is felt in my heart, life is much easier now.
          I pray that my people in M.E. will grow up the way your ancestors did, they have to, otherwise they will have nothing left.
          Thanks for the kind words.

            The problem is not with ethnicity or creed, humankind is plagued with opportunists of every stripe that are without a conscience and filled only with avarice and blind unrestrained arrogance fueled ambition, it is unfortunate, but those with those types of personality flaws often find themselves at the levers of power and they too often exert whatever power they have to gain more power at the expense of everyone else rather than by serving as a benefit to the earth in general. We as human beings must learn to control our self appointed leaders who pretend to speak for us, divide us and redirect all our energy towards their own self serving and lowly ends.

            The muslims need to overthrow the dictators that the West has installed to ruin their nations, those of us in the West need to overthrow the assholes who are profiteering off of conflict and strife, anyone in this world who assumes to be considered a leader should be held to bitter account for all that they do with the power they have, if power is abused great abuse and death should be heaped upon they who would abuse the peoples trust.

    Frankly I am sick and tired of all the hypocrisy and kissing of the backsides of the so-called “good Muslims”. Do they exist? Yes. The Mayor of Rotterdam Holland is a great example. He is that rare example of an assimilated Muslim who identifies himself as a Dutchman first and foremost. And a courageous one at that. By his recent statement admonishing that if any of his co-religionists don’t like western and specifically Dutch culture to “please pack your bags and go!” he has put his life on the line for what he believes is right.

    I’m sure I’m not the only one who is fed up with seeing some Imams of no particular influence get trotted out on network TV shows to speak out of both sides of their mouths. Out of one side they condemn the perpetrators of whatever ghastly new attack and claim that they are not really Islamic.

    It’s all just so much Taqiyya (lying for the sake of Allah). As Yasser Arafat once said; “I’m willing to kill for my cause. Do you think I wouldn’t lie for it?”

    In Islam the Sunna (from which the Sunni sect draws its name means “to follow the example of Mohammad”. Well the recent attacks in Paris are a perfect example of Sunna and prove the lie of the Imams claiming that they are not Islamic.

    During Mohammad’s siege of Medina a famous Jewish poet of the day, Kab Ashraf, among others wrote pieces that ridiculed and criticized Muhammad. They soon found wide circulation in the towns and villages of Western Arabia. Muhammad response was to send secret assassination squads into Medina and other Jewish enclaves to kill anyone who would dare criticize Muhammad and his movement. Thus we have the beginning of the use of terror by Islamist in order to frighten critics into silence. After the assignations of Kab Ashraf and others a delegation of Jews from Medina was sent to Muhammad to complain of their cruel fate at his hands. Muhammad replied: “He hurt us (Allah and his messenger) and insulted us with poetry, and one does not do this among you (Jews and polytheists) but he shall be put to the sword.”

    So then the assignation of Theo Van Gogh, the attacks against the Danish cartoonists and now the wanton murders in Paris are nothing more than a contemporary exercise in the practice of the Sunna. Anyone who denies it or makes feeble excuses for are either fools or simply practicing Taqiyya.

    Islam is now and has always been political/military movement covered with a veneer of “religion”. In form and function it is little different than Japanese Shintoism that manifest in Kamikaze attacks and suicidal Banzai charges. (There is a reason Gen. MacArthur insisted that the post war Japanese constitution specifically excluded Shintoism from having any place in the new government.)

    Such Imperial death worship, coupled with violent hatred of the Jews was manifested in the long time residence of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem in Berlin during WWII and in the greatly feared Hansar SS division that was comprised entirely of Muslims from the Yugoslavia region and some from Syria who entered Europe through Vichy France.

    The Bush administration had us fighting this determined enemy with one hand behind our back. The current administration has undertaken to make sure we have both hands tied.

    On a more hopeful note, the Jihadists have created a Frankenstein’s monster in the lone self directed operative. The uncoordinated and extremely violent attacks like those in France, the gang rapes that have occurred in Sweden and Germany have begun to take their toll of the consciousness of growing numbers in Europe. The backlash to decades of “tolerance” and the creation of Islamic “no go” zones, that are the breeding grounds of hatred and violence, have spawned new movements that will only grow in size and political influence. We can only hope that their growth is tempered with wisdom as well as political fervor lest violent retribution become the order of the day as the deteriorating economic situation in Europe piles frustration upon frustration.
