WNW 185-Iran Nuke Deal Falls Apart, Will Fed Raise Interest Rates, Economy Getting Worse

5By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (4/10/15)

The deal to curtail Iran’s nuclear program is no deal at all.  How do I know this?  You just have to listen to the leadership in Iran.  The Ayatollah Khamenei has weighed in along with his subordinates, and they have said that the White House and the President are liars.  There is going to be no inspections of their military facilities, and they are not going to stop enriching uranium.  Also, the President said the sanctions would be lifted gradually as the Iranians complied with the deal, and Iran now says they demand sanctions be lifted at the signing of the deal; otherwise, there is NO DEAL.  They had me at “liar.”  How do you negotiate a deal when the other side calls you a liar and a devil?  Either John Kerry or President Obama knew they did not have a deal or they are incompetent.  Maybe they are a little of both.  I predict right here and now there will be no deal to curtail Iran’s nuclear program.  Ironically, as the Obama Administration is being called out for lying by the Iranians, the White House twitter account is mocking Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  Israel is an ally, and Iran is still on the State Department list of countries that fund terrorism.  I cannot make this stuff up.  The White House is negotiating with Iran, and it will not even address terrorism as part of the Iran nuke deal.  Does that mean Obama is okay with what Iran is doing in the Middle East?

Meanwhile, Congress is getting legislation ready that will require it to have a say in the Iran Nuke deal and also will propose new sanctions if there is no deal.  The President said he would veto any legislation that gets in the way of his deal.  The only question that remains is can Congress get enough Democrats to vote to override a veto.  The chances are good they will because this is just way to important for Congress to sit by and watch the President, who now looks like a fool.  I have to say one thing for the Iranians, they have been very consistent over the past several years I have been reporting on this.  The real wild card here are the Arabs and the Israelis, who are now on the same side against Iran.  This is a powder keg situation, and the fuse is lit.  We just do not know how long it is.

Iran is now reportedly sending warships to the Yemen coast.  Egypt is also sending warships and troops.  Egypt and the rest of the world has much to lose if the Strait of Mandeb is shut down by either war or terror.  If the Mandeb Strait is closed, that means the Suez Canal will not produce revenue to Egypt, and things like oil shipments will stop and be forced to go around Africa to get to Europe.

The economy showed yet another sign that it is in trouble.  Wholesale sales have plunged and are joining the declining factory orders.  The March Fed minutes were released, and the Fed is reportedly split on raising interest rates.  My friend Gregory Mannarino of TradersChoice.net called me and said the Fed has turned into a “circus.”  Mannarino contends the Fed knows that if it raises interest rates, the economy gets killed.  I agree.  It really faces two choices and that is to raise rates now and immediately kill the economy or let it ride, but the result is the same.  Almost everyone I talk to and hear about agree on two facts:  What we are doing with 0% interest rates cannot go on, and we are headed for another financial calamity.  Just this week, the Head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde, warned how 0% rates could cause “asset over-valuation risks.”  Jamie Dimon of Chase is also warning of another crash just this week.  This is making its way into the mainstream vernacular.  Does that mean a crash is getting closer?

    Do you suppose we will ever know the rap sheet on every doosh in DC who came to that town nip and tuck and within a few years became a multimillionaire? Can you imagine what a novel that would make? Corzine still mingles with the gods unscathed. Someone tell me what the difference is regarding who gets prosecuted. Never mind, we all know.

    Lois Lerner off the hook. Hillary, hey what difference does it make? Hillary and McCain running for office — HUH? Stockholm syndrome?

    The thing that is rolling around in my mind’s cage is whether or not we as a country will make better choices in the future (if indeed there is a future). Hello, when your candidate’s minister GD’s America, do you think people’s radar will activate next time? When a candidate openly telegraphs a progressive agenda, at what point do you consider your wife and kids first?

    I got rid of TV totally, stopped listening to talk radio. The only one who purges the bile in me is Michael Savage when it comes to talk radio. He is my only exception. The others get most of their schtick off the Drudge Report. How lazy! I know everything they have to say by 5 a.m.

    And enough with the right/left routine. We are one slow walk from the execution courtyard and these clowns in radio keep trying to put a new wax job on the Bill Kristols, Dick and Mary Cheney, Jeb Bush …. Aaaaaaaaaaaah!

    My brother used to ask me this question whenever I made a stupid decision that reared up and bit me: “Did you learn anything?” Me: “Yes, I will never do that again.” My brother: “Then it wasn’t a total loss, was it?”

    I’m ready and anxious to help put the pieces back together, should we ever get that chance. But, it would be pointless if the bulk of the public doesn’t grasp reality and learn from this.

      Donna I too liked Dr Savage very much but his denial of the 911 false flag as well as his Muslim hating which is nonsense has turned me off Also the way he belittles any callers that he disagrees with is extremely arrogant and infantile in my opinion

  3. Donna

    Needs no translation.

    Pick a country, any country. Oozing of arrogance and incompetence. God help us.


    • John

      I agree Savage can be caustic at times, but he is usually right. What he says about a nation being defined by it’s borders, language, and culture is spot on, and the current administration is doing everything it can to blur the lines. We are in trouble. Great article Greg. I learn a lot from your guests and your insights. Please keep up the great work!

    I think we are about to see the beginning of a “United States of the Middle East” … with the formation now of an informal alliance between Israel and the Sunni States, including Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States (except Qatar) in a move to counter a nuclear armed Iran … where Israel as the lead State of this Union will provide nuclear cover for the other Sunni States.

    Israel is now actively collaborating with these Sunni States in security, defense and intelligence activities, as well as such economic projects as gas supply to Jordan and the Red Sea to Dead Sea water project … this new Middle East Union may one day be called the “United States of the Middle East” … as the brother’s of Abraham finally unite to build a strong new economic, scientific and technological Union at a time when the European Union seems on the verge of collapse!

    • paul

      Germany’s Angela Merkel is on record as having said “a Greek Exit from the Euro would mean the end of the European dream” … although Greece made a payment of $490 million dollars to the International Monetary Fund on April 9 … all eyes are now focused on the upcoming payments Greece will have to make “every week in April” … and also the further $7.75 billion dollars it will have to find in May and June … will the Fed be picking up the bill as part of a QE4 expansion of the money supply? … so as to prevent Greece from being “taken” in the Grand Chess Game being played by the US and Russia?

    • paul

      As Israel draws closer to its Arab brothers watch to see a breakthrough in the Palestinian issue … perhaps an agreement that states “no women … no children” and a lifting of sanctions!

    Hi Greg
    Congrats. on another great WD week my friend.

    Just my 2 cents worth re the Iran deal.
    As you know I am neither a statesman nor a financial expert.
    I am just a 60 year old impartial observer from afar but I do believe I recognize a liar when I hear and see one. Personally I regard Obama and Kerry, not to mention Nuland, as completely untrustworthy psychopaths and the concept that Iran could trust Washington in any deal as quite simply farcical and utterly untenable.
    I have to agree with PCR on this one and take the liberty of quoting a couple of recent comments from him ;
    ” On what basis could Iran possibly trust Washington”
    ” An agreement with Washington is a prelude to treachery. It puts the signer at ease while Washington prepares the signer’s doom. This is the way Washington operates.”
    Ooops sorry…. I copied and pasted!

    Of course the problem of serial porkies is much wider than the current administration.
    Perhaps Iran can remember that bare faced lies were repeatedly told by the Bush admin as to Iraq’s conduct. These lies led to sanctions and a war plus the death of some 4,500 US servicemen and one million Iraqi’s. And thats right didn’t that one million casualties include 500,00 infants whose deaths were directly attributed to the economic sanctions imposed on that country by the US and its cohorts.

    Perhaps Iran reflects too on what Washington’s deal was worth when they agreed with Gorbachev that they would not move NATO east when Germany was reunified.
    This list goes on ad nauseam.

    I’m sorry Greg but as long as your country instals [ I was going to say ‘elects’ but this is not always the right term] incompetent liars into high positions including the white house, then the US will never be taken seriously ever again in any diplomatic deals.
    They will have to continue to rely on their reputation as a bludgeoning bully in order to get anything done.

    Sorry if this sounds a bit harsh but this is how many people around the world regard the US now. Quite frankly I feel very angry about the serial bad behavior of the US and its partners in crime, particularly the UK and TPTB.
    I feel this way and I live in a traditionally ‘US lapdog country’ that so far [touch wood !] has not been bombed and lost a million or so of it’s citizens because we stepped out of line.

    Remember too that people of my age, 60 years old, cannot remember a single year where the US was not involved in at least one war somewhere in the world.
    It is disgraceful to think that during this time and up until 2009 these wars cost the lives of some 35 million people and injured an estimated 350 million.
    Even more astonishing is the fact that this killing was seemingly normalized by many US vassal states.
    Well guess what US, most of the world is now thoroughly sick of this big fat bully on the block and they won’t be making any deals because quite frankly there isn’t any point!


    • dbcooper

      Gertrude, We call it the “War Of Northern Aggression” !! DB

    • Silence is Golden

      The sad truth about the US and its involvement in War does not and never will form part of the history that is taught in schools.
      These sub-humans that control the governments do from time to time chose very competent people for the CIC role. The trouble is, they also create inducements/deterrents to ensure that the incumbents do not deviate from the desired agenda/objectives.
      Of course there are different elements operating with differing motives within any administration. What we don’t overtly see is the in-fighting.

    Hi Greg
    Obama doing his masters biding, which is destroying USA and it can be seen as incompetence or political machination. And that is another reason why he would be impeached on treason or why he would be able walk away. Not to mention that fact if Obama get impeached on treason the 47 congressmans should be to (those who write letter to Iran).
    Another “fun fact” about Obama’s administration, they are refusing evacuate US citizens on pretext they were warned (about 200 suits were signed against the US gov.) and icing on the cake is: the said citizens are asking the Russians for help (and they are getting it).
    I “wonder” what kind of massage is this sending.
    What happens if an US citizen will be killed?
    Obama will held a press conference and will say something like:
    “I signed an executive order to getting out US citizens from Yemen, but my administration didn’t executed it.” (This would be probably true.)
    Again, maximum damage to the US, and it will describe Obama as incompetent and the US government as anti-American. (And the Iranians would be proven right and the US gov would be a “laughing stock”.)

    Lets talk about Yemen. As you noted, Egypt’s goal is keeping the Suez canal open. The Iranians goal is stopping the killing in Yemen and stabilizing the situation there (and the Chinese have similar goals). So these 3 reached a consensus and will try stabilize the region and keeping open the Suez canal (China is using this route to), while the US and its allies trying blow up the ME and the rest of the world. Again, maximum damage to the US, while Putin is wondering about the sanity of the US gov.

    My 2 cents
    Oracle 911

  8. Allen Starr

    I don’t really want to get into an argument about whether Iran is a terrorist nation or not because the US, NATO, and the EU are all Terrorists when it comes to Ukraine. This is all about stealing Ukrainian assets and murdering its people to accomplish it’s goals. And it doesn’t take a genius to understand that if the US continues to push the Russians, they will be forced to nuke the US, NATO, and it’s allies. I was always a US patriot until 2008 when Georgia attacked South Ossetia. I was familiar with Georgia because of the pipeline that goes through the country with Azerbaijan oil and gas from the Caspian Sea. I got my eyes opened and was just stunned by the lying of the US, NATO, and EU that came out of that attack and still continues today. The lying has continued and gotten worse under the Obama Administration and Obamacare isn’t the only screwing the American people are getting. The Ayatollah calling Obama/Kerry liars is probably coming from someone who is tired of the BS. I’m sure Putin can relate to all of this as the US has broken every treaty it has ever signed. I came to the same conclusion that Bill Holder comes to and it gave me many sleepless nights for awhile until I finally got to the point of not caring. I live within a few miles of a Dam and an Air Force base here in Russia so I will be at ground zero when the nuks start flying. The US has been taken over by the Neo Cons and Bankers and they must have War. I am at the point in my life where I must trust Putin and would rather be nuked than live under the control of the US today. I have met ex KGB agents and they are some of the smartest people in Russia. I have met FSB agents and they are Professional and smart also and recruit from groups of the best in Russia and I’d trust them before I’d trust anything told by Kerry, Obama, or any of the other US liars today. I am just sickened by what the US has become and the realization that my country is dead and there’s no way to save it.

    • Mike M.

      Thanks for leaving. We will be fine thanks.

      Dont bet against the U.S. just because our leaders are terrible for now. Once the bond market goes the gig will be up and America will reform. The next generation will be ready to lead when we get the reins.

      Nobody is nuking anybody, lay off the fear porn.

      • Allen Starr

        Thank You. And enjoy what’s coming.
        It’s obvious you know nothing about what the lunatics in the US are doing in the Middle East , Ukraine, or many other countries over here. It’s serious and the rest of the world has had enough. It’s impossible to avoid war in Ukraine with the Kiev Govt. in power and the US doing everything it can do to start a war. I’ve already found a place where life is better and is much less of a Police state than the US is. You are totally ignorant as to what is going on and what is going to happen if something doesn’t change. The US started a financial war with QE and the rest of the world has responded to protect itself and this war is to the death. The US can’t win this war. I am lucky that I got screwed years ago and found another life in a foreign country. All my $’s are converted to rubles and invested at 19%. We bought apartments years ago for almost nothing and the value has increased more than 20 times.
        We have a large Dacha and only use about 20% of the crops we grow and sell the rest. I can honestly say that I am much better off here with these people under Putin and hoping he can avoid the coming Nuclear war. Why would anyone want to live in the US under Obama, the Neo Cons, the Bankers, and the Police State, and the catastrophe that’s sure to make your life a living hell. Don’t waste your time throwing nonsense my way as you don’t have much time left even if a nuclear war is somehow avoided. I already suffered the pain of making the change and will tell you that you aren’t going to like going through this as your life will be changed forever and there’s nothing you can do about it.

        • Colin - 'the farmer from NZ'

          Hi Allen
          It is an absolute treat for me to read your posts knowing that you actually live in Russia. I feel we watchdoggers, Mike M. included, would be very foolish indeed not to listen carefully to your perspective.

          My personal view is that with lunatics like Obama, Kerry and Nuland calling the shots it is an absolute miracle that military WW3 is not already in full swing.
          These people are such habitual liars that it is farcical for a sovereign country to even try to make deals with the US.

          The word is that Kerry will possibly run for President in 2016. Being yet another delusional psychopath he probably has every chance of being ‘elected’. What a tragedy that would be. The very survival of humanity would continue to hang by one small thread.


      • Freebreezer

        Mike M.
        This is no game being played and the n. option is on the table! Russia will not back down on Ukraine, thus you need to ask yourself – will the US? With the likes of J. McCain, D. Feinstein, L. Graham and the Arms industry and big bankers sitting at the ‘proverbial’ table it scares the hell out of me. Russia just flew a top of the line jet at one of our AWACs … missing it by 20 ft. This is no accident and one of many instances of Russia trying to say to the US & Europe – WAKE UP! The the cadre advising Obama ( Ivy league, left leaning idealogues; younger with questionable world experience – except for A. Sharpton of course; and indoctrinated in the left utopia of equality), they might not be up to the situation and could easily make a naive mistake/mis-calculation! … I think of Chamberlin with ‘peace for this century’ and Obama with an unearned Nobel peace prize … history is unfortunately loaded with these ironies. The bond market needs to go and quick(!) and we had better pray that it stops this ‘train’, otherwise the alternatives are dark. ….. Just my opinion

  9. jose

    I posted on your you-tube channel that Obama is intentionally doing all these things. In my opinion, and others as well, the man is a narcissist and quite possibly a sociopath. I am worried what this man, if you can call him that, is capable of doing. Since 2008 I have been saying that we know nothing about the man. It appears as if everything about the man is made up. Everyone has been ignoring the 800 pound gorilla in the room. Well, as his former pastor used to say: The chickens are coming home to roost”.

    God help us all.

    • diane

      Jose speaks the truth.

    • Silence is Golden

      Obama cannot pass wind without getting permission.
      He is there to carry out the wishes of his minders and he is no different to his predecessors, who were all controlled in the same fashion.
      Understand how these people get elected and who funds their campaigns.
      Western Governments are not democratically elected. They are chosen by the Elites and put on show for the public. The public has continually been conned and believe their vote still counts.
      Ever wonder why there are only two horses running the election race…no independents ? The MSM would ensure that a third horse would be permanently put out to pasture. Could you imagine someone standing for President to represent the American People…with the aim of ridding the country of the very people who are destroying the fabric of a once great Nation. They would have to shut down the Government, Judicial system, Law Enforcement and close the FED and all Private Banks. The they would be required to remove the internal security and spy agencies and all the parasites that have appendages to them.

      Chances of that happening….ZERO !!!

      If Obama looks and acts like a narcissist and sociopath…its probably because of he resembles the sort of people the are pulling the strings.

      • diane

        True, also SIG
        The scary thing is the way this Obama fooled most of the people. They voted for this idiot twice….he became God to the ignorant, the Marxists, and the Atheists.
        We can only pray these fools wake up and join our minority who still believe in freedom and the Free market and our United States Constitution.

    • John

      I actually like much of what you say in terms of finding a new life and your accomplishments. Why do you think Obama really wants a war with Russia?

  10. Jeff Warren

    I was needing your opinion on the survival of the collapse for the average person. Even though the middle class with conservative minds are doing fairly well, it will still be difficult for survival and keeping your homes being that most people still owe on their mortgages and can not afford very much if any silver or gold. I was wondering if you could have a guest on your show that could give us survival tips and ideas on how to weather the storm. My self and other people that I know are doing the basics like food storage, extra cash, weapons , other supplies and keeping your faith, but is there any other advise out there that we do not know about?
    Thank you again for your show and your guest, it has been a very eye opening and learning experience.
    God Bless,

      Jeff W … for the average person … the one “must have” necessity … it”s not gold, not silver, not even food … it is water!

      Water is “critical” to a family’s survival …the human body can last for weeks “without food” … but only “a few days” without water!

      So … at a minimum each family should store at least one gallon of water per person per day for drinking purposes. Those who live in an arid clima may need three gallons of drinking water per person per day.

      For a family of four (storing one gallon of drinking water per day for each person) means they will need 28 gallons to last one week!

      PS: Caution … don’t store plastic water containers directly on cement floors … storing plastic water containers on concrete can start a chemical reaction that will contaminate your water … so put down some plywood first … or store the plastic containers on shelves!

      Unopened “store bought” water containers are best for long-term storage … such water will not “go bad” … but if one decides to save some money and refill plastic containers from the tap … it could become contaminated by microbes … so sanitize the container first by filling the gallon container and adding one teaspoon of bleach … shake … let it sit for a minute … repeat about three times … then rinse with clear water from the faucet … and only then … fill the container with the tap water you intend to store (also make sure the cap is disinfected) … this water should be good to drink for more then six months.

      PSS: If a crisis comes upon us quickly … rapidly clean your bath tub with bleach and let it stand awhile … rinse and empty … then fill the tub with tap water … the average bathtub can hold about 60 gallons (that’s two weeks worth of drinking water for a family of four) … you can also store water for “washing and sanitation” in your washing machine.

      PSSS: If the crisis lasts longer then expected and you’ve exhausted both your gallon container supply of drinking water and all your bathtub water … you can tap your hot water heater (which contains about 40 gallons of water) by attaching a garden hose to the bottom release valve … this additional emergency water will provide another week and one half of drinking water for a family of four.

      PSSSS: … Remember any tap water collected “after a power outage” could be unsafe to drink … so you should boil it “for three minutes” which will make it safe to drink … if you don’t have any means to boil your water add two to four drops of chlorine bleach per quart of water … let it sit for 30 minutes … smell the water … if you don’t smell chlorine … repeat the process … wait another 30 minutes … if you smell chlorine it is sanitized and ready for drinking … if you don’t have any bleach to sanitize your water … you can utilize the Sun’s ultraviolet radiation to make your water safe to drink by using a “clear” plastic container like a soda bottle no larger then two liters …remove exterior labels fill with water (it can’t be murky) strain through a cloth if need be … then lay the bottle on its side and expose the water to direct sunlight for six(6) hours … do not use a glass bottle or colored bottle which will absorb the sanitizing ultraviolet radiation … if the bottle you happen to have is three liters don’t fill it all the way as the ultraviolet radiation will find it difficult to penetrate a too dense concentration of water.

      Any additional water you need for washing and sanitation can be caught in a rain barrel from gutters … or simply “reuse” your cooking water for washing, toilet and other necessities.

      • diane

        Excellent tips, Paul.
        Greg Hunter has the right idea….don’t bother with wimpy hand wringing…do what you have to do and FEAR NOT.
        Thanks Greg.

    • James Hastings

      May I suggest reading these….
      Go to the ant, you sluggard…Prov. 6:6
      And an idle person will suffer hunger…Prov.19:15
      He who has a slack hand becomes poor…Prov.10:4
      A prudent man forsees evil and hides himself…Prov. 22:3
      Gather his wheat into the barn…Matt 3:12
      Therefore you also be ready…Matt 24:43

      Why this coming calamity….if you walk contrary to me, and will not hearken unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins…Lev 26:21 (I am God, I do not change)

      It’s all in the book. Good luck.

        James love the scripture. But other the hard work what advise do you have for the slaves.. THINK.

    • jay cee Davis

      but is there any other advise out there that we do not know about?.
      Really folks? This, ( Jeff Warren is asking a very important question) STOP !

  11. Titus

    As you said Greg, it makes 2014 look like a holiday. Put aside Illuminati stuff etc, USA is now the Provocotor…The Big Plan would be for Washington is to release Iran from the sanctions, Iran builds up again and in doing so provokes Israel to attack…and then they destroy each other…as per the plan! As Albert Pike wrote in 1871…

    “The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by the “agentur” (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions.”

    “The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine. During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm.”

    After this Second World War, Communism was made strong enough to begin taking over weaker governments. In 1945, at the Potsdam Conference between Truman, Churchill, and Stalin, a large portion of Europe was simply handed over to Russia, and on the other side of the world, the aftermath of the war with Japan helped to sweep the tide of Communism into China.

    (Readers who argue that the terms Nazism and Zionism were not known in 1871 should remember that the Illuminati invented both these movements. In addition, Communism as an ideology, and as a coined phrase, originates in France during the Revolution. In 1785, Restif coined the phrase four years before revolution broke out. Restif and Babeuf, in turn, were influenced by Rousseau – as was the most famous conspirator of them all, Adam Weishaupt.)

    “The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.” (www.threeworldwars.com).

    • Greg Hunter

      According to the Bible Israel will not be destroyed.

      • Emeth

        Israel will not be TOTALLY destroyed –

        Jer.30:11 For I am with you,’ says the LORD, ‘to save you; Though I make a full end of all nations where I have scattered you, Yet I will not make a complete end of you. But I will correct you in justice, And will not let you go altogether unpunished.’
        This is what lies ahead – big trouble is coming,

        Firstly, Zech.12:2-3. “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”

        Two thirds of them will perish in the battle
        Zech.13:8 “And it shall come to pass in all the land, Says the LORD, “That two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die, But one-third shall be left in it:….”

        The outcome of all this tragedy is clearly spoken of in Zech.14 => eventually all nations will be at peace, war will be no more. God’s kingdom and dominion will be established over all the earth in the man chosen for the role, even the Lord Jesus Christ, the second Adam. He will take the dominion Gen.1:26-28 (Heb.2, Ps.110:1, Heb.10:13) and rule over all, bringing this peace.

        • Greg Hunter

          I think I said the opposite and we are on the same page my friend.

    • Gene

      And according to the Bible, His Church will not be destroyed since, “The gates of Hell will not overpower it.” See Matthew 16:18

      • Emeth

        Please read Rom.11:25-29 – Paul says, do not be ignorant of this mystery….. concerning Israel.

        • paul

          Yes … but for Israel to be saved it must turn away ungodliness … it is godly that the sons of Abraham are now coming together … all that remains is to bring the blessings of peace to Palestine!

          • Emeth

            Yes, in Rom.11:26 Paul says “The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob.”
            So the change of heart and mind will happen after Jesus comes again.
            Interestingly, Mal.4:5-6 (ESV) “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes. And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the land with a decree of utter destruction.”
            Some Jewish synagogues have a chair named for the prophet Elijah, used during some ceremonies.
            But the important question is why will God save ungodly Israel, in the future?
            For the same reason he saved them out of Egypt the first time -> Primarily because he keeps his promises, and the outworking of his Love and grace to them, not for their righteousness (read Deut.7:7-9, 9:4-6).
            This is the very point Paul is making in Rom.11.

    • James Hastings

      At that time Jerusalem shall be called the thrown of the Lord…Jer 3:17
      the cities shall be inhabited and the WASTE places rebuilt…Jer36:10
      It shall come to pass in the LATTER days…Micah 4:1
      everyone that survives of all the NATIONS …shall go up year after year to worship the King and keeps his feasts..Zec 14:16
      He that overcomes and keeps my works unto the end, I will give power over the NATIONS…Rev 2.26
      He who conquers I will grant him to sit with me on my throne…Rev 3.21
      and we shall reign on the EARTH…Rev 5:10
      for all NATIONS shall come and worship before thee…Rev 15:4
      He will rule with a rod of iron…19:15

      It’s all in the book.

    Great Weekly News Wrap-Up once again Greg!

    And now for my regular tribute to the USA Watchdog headline information-pool:

    Lobbyists for spies appointed to oversee spying:

    A small excerpt:
    “Who’s keeping watch of the National Security Agency? In Congress, the answer in more and more cases is that the job is going to former lobbyists for NSA contractors and other intelligence community insiders.

    A wave of recent appointments has placed intelligence industry insiders into key Congressional roles overseeing intelligence gathering. The influx of insiders is particularly alarming because lawmakers in Washington are set to take up a series of sensitive surveillance and intelligence issues this year, from reform of the Patriot Act to far-reaching “information sharing” legislation.

    Hi Greg
    I read with interest your take on the Iran ‘deal’ pushed through by your current administration, and was not surprised by your position as you have been consistent in your Mideast support of Israel and distrust in Iran over the years.

    Given this, I thought it would be an exceptional interview if you had Paul Craig Roberts on again to debate the issue. His views on the trustworthiness of the USA deal makers over the generations ( The Iran Nuclear Energy Agreement: Force Again Prevails Over Law ) suggests that with this deal, the Iranians should be very, very worried. Just ask Gorbachev how he feels about his ‘deal’ with the US of A regarding the end of the Cold War and NATO’s promise not to move one inch toward the East and Russian borders.

    Kind of reminds me of the old saying ” keep your friends close — and your enemies closer” …

  14. Bruce Schneider

    Greg, you are bang on . Whats happening today is incredible, and 99% of the population is in total denial. I have been preaching the comming economic collapse every day to people at work and they think im some kind of nut. We need more people like you to warn whats really going on in this world, thanks Greg. PTL

  15. Jeff

    Greg – This article from Western Journalism backs your report on the Iran deal:

  16. JC Davis

    Good job Greg. Question of the week is Mr. Obama where you gona go when your out of office, and out of countries? As a deceptive Muslim you should have been accepted by Iran, yet you were rejected. I guess even Iranians have a conviction about lying when they are not the ones telling the lie.
    Greg I think Iran already have nukes and are hoping Israel strikes them.

  17. Jerry

    Greg, I sometimes get the impression from some of your readers here, that the discussion about the economic reset is like some type of entertainment for them. That the reality of what is getting ready to happen hasn’t really soaked in yet. That when its over we’ll all be sitting at a table drinking coffee at the local Star Bucks discussing the details. Well let me shed some more light on this subject. Please read the Presidents latest executive order carefully.

    I’m not sure how you interpret it, but when I read the legal language of the document, it appears to me that the President has expended his executive powers to his agencies to deal with some type of financial crisis, that may or may not be associated with a cyber attack. In short they’re preparing for something.

    When you view the numbers of countries that have signed on with AIIB the last two weeks, including Iran (hint, hint) this week, it appears to me that they’re all preparing for something, and the one that is being isolated isn’t Iran, its us! The only ones who aren’t aware of it, are the clueless American people who have been sold out by the MSM and are to busy watching dancing with the stars, to notice.

    Greg, when I look at the MSM, staying with them would have never worked for you. You care to much about people, and have a conscience. God bless you.

    • Jerry

      Still don’t think there’s a global plan in motion? How about a superhighway to connect Russia with New York City?
      Before you discount this as hokum, check out the Silk Road that runs from China to London England. Hilary Clinton gave 5 Billion dollars of U.S. taxpayer money to help fund this project for the Chinese when she was Secretary of State.

      • Desert Rose

        Jerry, maybe she could do that since it was printed $…..fresh off QE.

    • NC Gal

      Jerry, do you think this is possibly a reaction to the White House having been hacked recently? That was blamed on Russia and when I saw the headline on it, I thought of Bill Holter’s observation that Edward Snowden had been in Russia for a year and a half and had to be doing SOMETHING there to support himself (and his girlfriend, I assume). This is something like the seizing of assets of people who are in Putin’s inner circle, isn’t it? Just a thought.

      • Jerry

        NC Gal.
        I find the broadness of the terminology used in this EO very troubling. All that is required for your arrest is to have someone finger you as a cyber threat and that’s it. No due process of law. No constitutional rights. Nothing. Its a shining example of martial law that is being installed in stages. Here’s another one.
        This is the mandatory form that banks are required to use for people who withdraw more than $10,000. out of their accounts. Getting $5,000. cash will get you a visit from local law enforcement.

        • Desert Rose

          This is a big deal.
          I want to share that I got a packet from the Dept of Commerce, since I live a southwestern state, and it had a huge survey, response was required by law. The survey included full name, address, phone, email, income, scheduled hours, and much more. Also, any persons living in house- their info had to be included. I told the guy I paid my taxes and that this was too much to fill out. They sent a Fed EX letter explaining “all information would be confidential” (YEAH, RIGHT!). Then I got a letter saying to call the info takers # for a very brief response. I did. The few questions he asked I answered- name of Jane Doe, at his suggestion.

          Point here, they are mining info for taxes and income. This whole thing was 6 weeks in process. More info required than the census. Got it, everyone?

    • Galaxy 500

      I read it as an attempt to stop cyber criminals from making off or transferring their ill gotten gain.

    • Cryptic Little Sister

      The clueless American people? Jerry, I put you far above those. For sure. You’ve seen some things. Any discerning reader can tell that you are sitting on some very exciting info.

      And you are not frightened, are you, Jerry?

      I’ve got my eye on you.

      • Jerry

        Afraid of what? Death? Been there. Done that. Came back. Will probably do it again REAL SOON. What else you got? I’m flattered that you’re keeping an eye on me. Be careful though. You don’t know who I know.

        • Cryptic Little Sister

          But, Jerry, my point is that you are above fear, are you not?

          You know too much to be afraid, do you not?

          Be careful of thinking that you know someone.

          • Greg Hunter

            Cryptic Little Sister,
            If you are going to come hear and supply some meaningful information and analysis then that’s great. I am not going to allow you to taunt people here with veiled threats. Got it? Stop it or move on.

    Obama taken for fool by classic Muslim ploy


  21. James Sullivan

    Hello Greg;

    A little off topic, but i have been wondering about the huge amount of stock buybacks in recent years. I understand the argument that the company elite are ensuring a lower P/E ratio by sweeping up large amounts of issued stock, as well as raising the stock price -thus ensuring high bonuses….but i find that argument somewhat suspect…since it leaves these companies with buying high just when one might think a market crash will drop the price of those same stock ….and leave the company saddled with debt at a bad time. I find it incredible that so many CEO’s could be so self serving, and i wonder if there is a further dynamic. There is so much cheap money floating around, would it not be an obvious gambit to use the money to outright acquire these companies …in which case the buybacks would be used as a type of ‘Poison pill’ to ward off takeovers?

    Its just a thought that’s been nagging me for some time. I’d appreciate it if any of your readers could take a run at this theory. Thanks for your good work…never fear.

    • Silence is Golden

      Why take on debt…when you can use the power of the Balance Sheet ?
      Stock buybacks are funded through cash flow …in lieu of capital investment or dividends.
      First and foremost …higher individual stock prices give SNR. Execs an exit strategy.
      Secondly…it strengthens the company’s position for potential corporate activity. Equity….. my friend…… is being used to gain more control…and to remove competition.

  22. Art Barnes

    Greg, the Iranians have been making fools out of American Presidents since the middle late 70’s, all without repercussions except for a few sanctions which they in large were able to circumvent by discounting oil, etc. Iran understands that Obama took the military option off the table. They also understand that they now have 2 years to build a nuclear arsenal remembering that they already have state of the art delivery systems in which to put the warheads on. This will in effect stop any further military action because of the fear of a nuclear response. Iran has had 6 years in which to take advantage of Obama naivete including H. Clinton the predecessor of State while the enrichment went full steam ahead. Sounds like Iran took advantage of the administration’s policy of Muslim now, Muslim first, Muslim always approach to the Middle-east which policy also had at its precondition Israel’s diminished support & power in the region for not supporting Obama’s two state request of Palestine. How will all this play out, anyone’s guess but if I were a betting man it I would bet on a nuclear Iran. From there on, well you can connect the dots from that point.

  23. Jerry

    For those of you still stuck in the quandary about whether or not to keep your money in a bank, here’s some more reality for you.

    According to this ruling, its no longer your money when you put it in a bank, pure and simple. As far as bank boxes? My grandpa told me during the depression when he went to his, (in bank that was taken over) a federal regulator was there to inspect the contents. It was widely known they would seize anything the state deemed as of real value. (IE Gold)

    • Desert Rose

      Agreed….it ain’t ours if its in a bank. Getting hard to use cash now. They put your bank account # on checks, even when you cash them. Louisiana is in trouble with that law now that requires paypal, credit cards and checks for all used goods transactions.

      Even if a person has some PMs, it’s tough to live for those on the edge.

  24. Lo

    Hi Greg:
    Thank you for all the information. Its interesting because I see so clearly that we’re in trouble and at any minute the whole BUBBLE is going to POP. As bad as things are, I can’t seem to convince my family that we’re in a unsustainable, dangerous situation. My daughter says she doesn’t want to hear it and my son-in-law just laughs when I talk about, and my own mother tells me that all I need to do is to relax and go “watch a good movie”. Its almost as if a genuine spirit of ignorance is overshadowing most people around me and the general population in America at large. Are you experiencing the same situation with your family/friends? Didn’t this happen to the Jews in Germany, when so many of them refused to acknowledge how bad things were until it was too late? I value your opinions very much and thank you again for all your hard work and time. Take care of yourself, Lo

    • Greg Hunter

      Short answer, yes.

  26. NC Gal

    Great wrap-up, as usual, Greg! Now that I’ve gotten used to your presentation style, it’s one of the highlights of my week and I find myself laughing often at the way you put your finger on how ridiculous and conflicted so much of this is. Thank you!

    I agree strongly with your prediction about how tumultuous the rest of this year is going to be. Perhaps there is a wall out there somewhere, past which the can cannot be kicked any longer, and the day of reckoning is truly going to come for everyone all over the world.

    I saw two good articles on Zerohedge today. One is about the calendar for repayment of Greek debt (com/news/2015-04-09/imf-payment-sends-greek-yields-lower-athens-warns-next-month-different-matter) which puts the next “date to watch” at May 12.

    The other is a very well-written piece by a man in Hong Kong about what a currency reset might look like and be based upon (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-04-09/spelling-out-big-reset). Of course, his thinking does not take war, much less nuclear war, into account, but I still think it’s worth a read to get one’s head around what it could look like.

  27. NC Gal

    Sorry, the link to that first Zerohedge article should have been http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-04-09/imf-payment-sends-greek-yields-lower-athens-warns-next-month-different-matter My bad.

      Yet … it’s an improvement from being called the Great Satan! … so I guess diplomacy is having some effect!

  29. paul

    To raise rates the Fed must create “visible inflationary pressures” … like a QE4 … or perhaps by telling the public we have to bail out Greece for US strategic reasons as part of our National Defense and Security (as Russia encroaches into our sphere of influence in retaliation for the US encroaching into it’s sphere of influence in the Ukraine and other areas) … or perhaps a War … however it is done … all this extra spending will create the “visible monetary inflation” necessary to raise interest rates (which will create even more inflation of the money supply because the interest payments on the National Debt will rise) … then as interest rates rise … “cost of living adjustments” will have to be made to peoples Social Security, EBT and Pensions … minimum wage payments will rise … thus putting more money in the hands of the people … so the public can take out “new” loans … or put more money on their credit cards … thus boosting the economy … continuing to boost the stock market … and finally boosting the price of gold and silver!

    So … what am I doing? … I buy some silver each month come hell or high water “no matter what the price is” … and I buy “extra silver” whenever there happens to be a more significant decline “for whatever reason” (a strong dollar, some analyst saying it will drop to $6 dollars per ounce, etc., etc.) … because as long as the Fed is raising rates it means they are creating by hook or crook “monetary inflation” … so all … all declines in silver (for whatever reason) will be bought by me.

  30. Tom Cunningham

    Hi Greg,

    Thanks again for all of the good work that you do. The signs are everywhere that the economy is not as good as the mainstream pundits want to make it out to be.

    Here in Northern Nevada there are several signs that are becoming hard for even the most “eyes wide shut” person to ignore.

    1. The real estate bubble is being inflated yet again with no real change in wages. Since the bottom of the market in 2010, home prices have rebounded close to 60% while wages remain stagnant. Wages at my company increase based on the CPI. That translates into about a 4-5% increase in wages over the same time period.

    2. A big to-do was made when Apple announced that they were going to develop a 340 acre parcel into a data warehouse campus in the Reno/Tahoe Industrial Park and build a large office in downtown Reno. My sources tell me that now Apple has pulled out of building the office downtown and is scaling back their plans to fully develop the 340 acre parcel. I was told that this was due to the high cost of electricity that they could not negotiate down with NV Energy, which was recently acquired by Berkshire Hathaway. My understanding is that they are going to develop a data warehouse in AZ where the KwH rate for electricity is over 50% less.

    3. Tesla is in the process of building their Battery Giga Factory in the Tahoe/Reno Industrial Park. Part of the arrangement they made with the state was that they would use as many local contractors as possible. A large concrete contractor I know told me that even though his bid was the low bid and his plant is less than 5 miles from the site being built, an out of state contractor is being used. Additionally I have heard that the 6000 or so jobs that were promised are being scaled back.

    4. I am personally seeing an increase in the number of homes that are being sold as short sales or foreclosures. This will start to put pressure on housing prices and could lead to the bursting of the housing bubble again.

    I truly feel that we must hold on tight because the ride is going to get a bit bumpy.

      In all environments we have winners and losers. Why not take control of your own future and take advantage of the opportunities ahead.

      If you think a market is going to collapse then bet against it or hold cash until the time to buy is right.

      I am looking forward to the bargains ahead. All of those people telling you the end of the world is coming are selling fear or gold. The oil market collapsed and look we survived. Yes there will be bad states or cities to be in, be stay calm and use your knowledge to make your future brighter.

    Greg: to understand the seemingly bizarre foreign policy of this administration, one only has to review the sordid history of the Rothschilds; how they fomented war to create chaos, financed all sides, and picked up the spoils for pennies on the dollar. There is no question that all Western governments are beholden to the bankster cabal; bought and paid for politicians with secret off shore accounts whose promoted laws and regulations always have an agenda of destroying both the populations and the economies they represent and increasing the coffers of the 1%.

    I was going to post my thoughts earlier this week about what could be a very plausible scenario to the take-down of Amerika. That was before I got “distracted”……… Being prepared is the mantra here (or use to be) so I present my thoughts…………….. If you were going to take down this country why use the approach of door to door gun confiscation (and the ensuing bloodshed). No telling what a civil war would bring……….. Why not “disconnect” the power grid ? Either by internet or EMP attack. You get a population extermination of 90% within months as a bonus……….Then the UN can walk in unscathed ( after they turn the lights back on, of course)…….. If I were designing a downfall this would be my choice for an area so large and populated……… My opinion is if you prepare for an electrical grid failure, you almost cover all your bases……….. Just my thoughts (whether you like me or not). Nazi Jeff

            Greg … When the Fed hikes interest rates in June … bonds more then equities will get hit hard … and interest rate and oil derivatives will get smashed … which will require the Fed to come up with some “newly printed cash” to bail out the banks on the wrong side of these derivatives trades … so although rising rates will tend to make the dollar stronger … the “newly printed cash” needed to bail out imploding derivatives should be a weakening influence on the dollar.

    Why on earth should Iran trust the US? Starting in 1953 the US has been sticking its nose into Iran’s sovereign affairs. The US supplied one despot – Saddam Hussein – with chemical weapons that it knew were used against the Iranian’s in the 80’s war and sat by passively by. As someone who has actually been to Iran I can tell you that they are wonderful people. That said I don’t particularly want them to build a nuclear weapon but then again I’d like it if Israel declared theirs and signed the non-proliferation treaty. I was in Palestine in December and saw what they do to Arabs and Christians up close and personal. I’d rather they not have nuclear weapons either.

    The two brothers accused in the Boston marathon bombing were innocent patsies. They didn’t bother running until they heard the authorities were looking for them. Why would the authorities announce they were looking for them when they knew who they were and could easily pick them up? They wanted them to run so they could shoot them dead and not have to deal with a trial. Traditionally no one cares whether or not the accused are guilty as long as someone pays for the crime. Did you see all the bullet holes in the boat in which the young brother was captured? Why would these reckless maniacs shoot at the boat if they thought he was trapped inside? There could have been a neighborhood child in that boat using it as hideout. Kids are always going where they don’t belong. The young brother was running for his life! Are we to believe he had the presence of mind to bring a flashlight and a magic marker with him so he could scribble Islamic messages inside the boat? Are we that stupid? It took two years to gather enough fake evidence and false witnesses for his speedy trial. Why even bother to have a trial? Why don’t we just publicly hang him? We already murdered his brother. Christians against Muslims! How many times are we supposed to fall for a divide and conquer strategy? Black lives matter but Moslem lives don’t? What are we teaching our children? Moslems had nothing to do with the 9/11 attack.

      Robert Salt I totally agree the military industrial complex needed a new boogeyman after the fall of the Soviet Union and they did 911 to blame the Muslims and create endless war and chaos for profit NO doubt in my mind you are correct

    Comment of the week IMO.
    Jeff L,
    Take this site for what it is….a platform to discuss topics of interest. Don’t try and make it something that only caters to your desires or tastes.
    I don’t feel special BTW…..so please refrain from painting everyone with the same brush. Nor do I have membership to any special club. I find your comment to be offensive and lacking respect.
    Your case for “Sharing” opinions is one thing…and opinions are just that….subjective thought processes. Everyone has a right to express themselves (as you have done) and if YOU gain something from that, then try to be content. Don’t try to take away the open nature of the “giving” (cut and paste as you put it)….others don’t have the time or energy to do the research for all the material…that you so eloquently discard as being redundant.

      Hat tip to you. 😉

    We are suicidal as a nation. Obama is GREATER……….than Chamberlin… You have a wonderful following. Many are excellent at adding to the economic analysis, expounding on foreign policy and giving us insights into back door intrigue.

    The bottom line is….there are two side to this coin. Some think….life as we know it, will muddle on… others realize, it’s almost over.

    We are on the verge of collapse and destruction as a nation. Soon, we will be history. I regret so many will be standing there with their mouths open. They need to make changes now.

    Great job again.

  38. Mike Soon Over

    Greg, thank you for the best 15 minutes of news anywhere and for the great interviews Greg you ROCK. I think I have a man crush. Lol On the other side I pray none of this comes true for I’m blessed in having such a fine life. (Fear not) THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO.

    Is it possible that the Iranian nuclear deal is not so much about any nuclear issues and more about Iran selling their oil for US dollars?

    A wise old owl lived in an oak.
    The more he saw the less he spoke.
    The less he spoke the more he heard.
    Why can’t we all be like that wise old bird?

    • Ignatius J. Reilly

      Because we have you to be wise and old and a bird.

      • paul

        The owl gives us the bird … and we say who? who? who?
        Shouldn’t it be the other way around?

    • paul

      Some “conspiracy theorists” believe that the Cryptic Little Sister (owl) simply represents a disinformation troll … but throughout history it seems the “owl” represented the guardian of secret knowledge … http://www.richardcassaro.com/uncovering-the-secret-owl-society … so CLS … start letting us in on some of those secrets!

      • paul

        You know … owls are noted for eating rats … so why are there so many still left on Wall Street?? … This “secret owl society” seems to have fallen down on the job … what we need is a “pied piper” to rid us of all the rats!

  41. Steve

    This is pretty misguided, Greg. Just today I saw this, which is a very useful antidote to your views:

    Iran was never the problem.

    • Greg Hunter

      You do realize that there is no deal and the Iranians are calling the President and White House a “liar”? You have to ignore a lot to be this one-sided. You should start your own site and post all the links you wish.

  42. gregd

    I couldn’t agree with you more. You must be batting 1000 on your Friday wrap up predictions. But looking to the future , I would like to hear from John Williams to see if he’s seeing anything different or anything happening soon, but if you could interview Ann Barnhardt, that would be someone everyone should hear from. Two very different styles. But very intelligent people.
    Keep up the good work.

    • John

      Of course Obama and company are lying. They always have and are never to be believed about anything. I mean, what would Iran have to gain from this statement other than to show they have more integrity than our leaders? Do not believe anything this president says . Never. Assume the opposite of what he is saying to be the truth. The hardest statements are the deceitful ones-half truths propagated to further his leftist agenda. That where prayer, wisdom, and folks like Greg come in.

  43. Jerry

    I’m convinced that the IMF is going to give China SDR drawing rights. Check out Christine Lagarde’s last statement to Zhou Xiachuan.
    If that happens its goodbye reserve currency status for the dollar.

    • Greg Hunter

      Martin Armstrong is up next and what he says is a bit startling. The bond market is toast but the USD (according to him) is not, at least not yet.

  44. J C Davis

    Greg I am going to avoid posting to see if these f……. trolls will leave your site with me. Keep up the work of GOD .

    • Greg Hunter

      Don’t let anyone run you off. Disruption and fear is what they are about. “Fear Not.” You have a right and my blessing to post all you want.

  45. steve

    The problem we have here is that the US do not know how to use diplomacy or negotiate, as they are used to threats and then follow up by bombing. The Sanctions should be immediatly lifted once they have an agreement, not slowly over time, that’s just nonsense. Do the deal , honour it and get it done.

  46. Sensetti

    Greg, spot on! Very well done, you are right on the money. Thank you for your consistent, top shelf analysis, soldier on and faint not.

    • Greg Hunter

      You are very kind Sensetti.

    Good evening Greg,
    Another very informative weekly summary. I’m sure the Iranians are aware of all the treaties between the US and the Indian Nations through the years and how those worked out, and I paraphrase. “As long as the wind blows and the grass grows until we see something you have that the US wants”.
    Here is a link to a short 3 minute interview with a retired Admiral (James Lyons) from the “greatest generation”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRXZAb5UkxA In it he identifies Islam in the fewest, most meaningful words I have personally read. “Islam is Islam. There are no modifiers. Islam is a political movement masquerading as a religion.”. He also mentions an incident when Caspar Weingerger was Sec. of Defense that merits more explanation. After viewing this short clip, I hope you deem him worthy of trying to book as a guest on your site. I think he is a treasure of information.
    He exemplifies the fear not attitude.

    Were not all Keynesian’s anymore, were all crony capitalists.

    That means were all Nazi’s! ~ Adolf Hitler

    And when ‘Der Führer’ comes back, just remember,

    I agree Savage is rude to callers. It stuns even me at times, and I grew up in a household of 5 males. My sister and I were on the tail end of the family. Protected — NOT. I’m used to rude, Irish/Croatian, fist happy, argumentative men over everything from an extra helping at the table to baseball. If that was not enough wear and tear, I could go to Manhattan or Hicksville, Long Island, and be a wingless fly on the head of a pin listening to my mother’s family argue politics and the old country. I grew up around strongly opinionated males. Savage is what I remember of New York. I overlook his flaws. To me, he is the all but extinct male. Today, it is totally “I am woman, hear me roar.” Hillary, anyone?

    I do not like today’s neutered male. Women will go down the wood chipper when this economy comes apart. Give me a Savage over the Pee Wee Hermins in this country. I admit, I’m exhilarated when Michael howls: “Am I the last angry man on the planet?”

    I am also aware of what a cut throat business talk radio is. They snipe each other. For the most part they are a clique, and Michael is not in it.

    You will need a very tough hide for the months ahead. I do not want to be schmoozed or stroked. I want info, I want direction.

    Muslim hate? Now, that is unfair. I do not think so, but we can disagree. I take it you missed his Good Friday airing. He addressed Muslims, Jews, and Christians over things that needed to be said. I have heard the same thing out of Steve Quayle, the Hagmanns, and Sheila Zelinsky. Maybe we should ALL put a muzzle on it and follow our Oz dictator’s chastisements.

    Give me back the decades I lived through when you could disagree at the top of your lungs and at the end of it laugh until you near broke a rib. My husband-to-be came to my attention in a group when I heard him yelling to some progressive condescending female: “THAT SOUNDS LIKE MAO DOGMA!” I think I was the only one in that room who knew who Chairman Mao was. Anyway, he got a wife out of it.

    Dear Greg,

    All what I read is: talk, talk and talk. But what is the real question???
    Your Justice system is going under and is very sick. All what the US is doing: is killing. And that is democracy. Don’t make me as a Euro-person say ……!!!
    Please revolt or…?

    England banned short selling for much of the 18th and 19th centuries, Napoleon declared short sellers to be enemies of the state, and many countries today either ban or severely restrict short selling.” I found this from 2 years back a interesting read.

  52. Alyce

    My only comment is that I agree with you, Greg, your analysis is great and you should do more than one each week!

  53. Billy

    Well Said Greg!! The deal with Iran is madness, and bravo for speaking the truth about Iran. Mr Obama is a modern day Chamberlain, all words no power behind any of it. Putin , China and Iran all see this and i think Israel knows that Americas power is spent in vain.
    The only deal you get with Iran is war!! Look at Obamas record on middle east policy- it’s atrocious. I believe a strong man is coming on the scene in europe very soon, and it may come about from all this economic mess. Remember Hitler came to power when europe was in economic mess in the 30’s. Iran gets war with europe and Europe will destroy Iran!!

  54. Eric Winegart

    Hello Greg,
    I’m a newby on your webpage. Thank you for being there. Have you heard of current legislation here in Montana about the water compact bill? It effectively gives all water right to the tribes/feds. This means ground water as well as flowing sources. CSKT Montana Compact bill# 427. Real big money being thrown at this as” common sense approach to aviod future legal battles” , It is blackmail on a large scale and will be the presidence for the nation to control our most precious commodity…water.
