Christmas Message 2018 from Greg Hunter

The cartoon refers to Congressman Adam Schiff.

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Christmas only comes once a year, and what a joyous time it is to celebrate the Birth of Christ.  I am giving you my Christmas message, but first, I will talk about the two huge problems in the world, and that is unpayable debt and massive crime.  These two reasons are why everything looks so crazy right now.

Merry Christmas and please remember to “Fear Not”!!

      A fallen “Angel” (Merkel) delivers her X-mas (or Satan-mas message) before she is permanently thrown down to a place from (the witch shall never return) stating: “All Nations Must Give Up Their Sovereignty To A Commie/Satanist/Fascist New World Order” … https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-12-27/angela-merkel-nation-states-must-give-sovereignty-new-world-order … however millions of people across Europe are sending their own “Christ-mas message” by voting with their feet and donning yellow vests … calling for a change to the current evil political, immoral and jumbled up cultural order being imposed upon the world by Demons … Satan’s Demons are intent on seizing the wealth of “all” Nations by subjugating all the people of planet Earth to a life” without the rule of law” … by methodically destroying every Nation State with a Constitution (that protects people’s “God’s Given Rights”)!!

        Once these radical Islamist’s get more political power then they have now (currently you can get 4 years in prison for showing photo’s of the beheading of two teenage girls by radicalized Islamist’s ) … https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-12-28/outrage-after-swedish-tv-downplays-gruesome-isis-beheadings-issues-prison-threat … remember one thing … it won’t always be knives they use to kill their enemy … one day very soon they will have their hands on Europe’s nuclear weapons … think about what nation comes to mind to these radicalized Islamic’s that believes in a God not in keeping with the Islam faith? … it could be Russia … it could be the US … but I would think Israel would be the first one on these radical Islamist’s nuclear target list … then we have Bibi and his neocons radicalizing the Palestinians, the Syrians, etc., etc., and people’s all over the Middle East are now being driven out of their homeland (forcing most of them to migrate to Europe) … for those who want to really save Israel we better start thinking long term (and perhaps it may not be so long) … for there could be nuclear hell to pay for not immediately settling the Palestinian issue that has been dragging on all these years radicalizing millions of people … as of now it looks like the radical Islamist’s already have a lot of political power (four years in prison if someone shows photos or makes mention of two girls being beheaded) … so it can be fairly soon these radicalized Islamic’s get there hands on Europe’s nuclear weapons!!

          So I guess “we out of work” American workers should listen to Trump and take our food money to buy stock in General Motors (who was already given hundreds of millions in US taxpayer dollars by Obama to build plants in Mexico and close their plants in the US) in order to increase their corporate earnings and their stock price? … come on Trump … you know better (because you don’t own any stocks yourself) … it is obviously a bad idea “to reward corporations” that are closing their factories in the US … and you want us to buy the stock of these corporations that are moving out of the US?? … what we should be doing is selling their stock and boycotting all their products!!

          • paul ...

            Hey Trump … why not promote buying precious metals the way you promote stocks of corporations that are globalists? … in the last month gold has risen by 4% and silver by 8% … those who took their money out of stocks and put their money in Treasuries got only 0.25% this last month!!

            • paul ...

              Seems gold and silver are now being manipulated upward by the Plunge Protection Team at the same time they are manipulating the stock market up and manipulating the dollar up!! … will this Trump re-set (pushing everything up) designed to hold off the criminal IMF re-set?? … perhaps Trump figures it will be difficult for the globalist IMF banksters to crash a system being manipulated higher!! higherahttps://www.kitco.com/commentaries/2018-12-28/The-Silver-Lining-In-Gold.html

    Greg, you mentioned that FDR’s bank holiday came in early March. That’s because in 1933 the Presidential inauguration didn’t take place until March 4th which was on a Saturday. The bank holiday period started two days afterward on Monday March 6th, the very first working day of his first term. The change to January 20th didn’t take place until 1937. I don’t know that there will be another bank holiday anytime soon unless it is part of a national emergency declaration, but if you think there will be a bank holiday, don’t bet on it being held off until March, especially with a President that is already in office.

        Greg,

        Aside from the lack of confidence (if Powell is fired by arrogant Trump) that may threatens the thrown of the greenback, EU/China/Russia are very happy with the feds policy for two reasons:
        1- Tightening is strong dollar positive which will screw up our export in the trade war with China ( the latter is very happy)
        2- Tightening is going to give the Euro, Yen, Yuan…. a room to breath from their easing and negative interest rate, as long as they are pegging their currency to undercut the dollar and keep the latter the carry trade.

        Mohammad

        • ConcAmDad

          …….and the Dow surges this morning after Trumpe urges to”Buy the Dip!” and expresses confidence in Mnuchin and Powell. …….. just more of the manic Kabuki theatre…….if he was really going to try and put a wrench into their machine he would have simply stuck with the truth …… would have been easier to wake people up.

          • Mohammad

            Same as what Karen Hudes always says:

            ALL ARE IN CAHOOT..!!

            Mohammad

          • Jim Weeber

            I think even the those who have been making the bad decisions. Winding the watch spring tighter all the time. Realize the consequences of the spring breaking and the system becoming nonfunctional on almost any level are too dire to risk. Consequently they will run this horse till it won’t run anymore. I think a slow decompression of all that is wrong becomes more difficult to manage with each passing day.

          • paul ...

            For equity traders who think the worst is over now that Trump said “buy stocks” … take a look at the collapse taking place in the leveraged loan market … liquidation has been furious as investors continue to pull money out in spite of the recent violent move up in the S&P … https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-12-28/leveraged-loan-prices-collapse-amid-record-breaking-outflows

        • TSI

          Trump has crossed the line telling ordinary folks to “buy the dip”. Unforgivable.

          • Greg Hunter

            TSI,
            “Unforgivable”??? Really? How about flying C-130’s full of cash to Iran in a phony deal that WAS NOT SIGNED BY ANYONE? How about that? Is that “unforgivable”? People have free will and telling people to “But the it” is not exactly what I call an “unforgivable” sin. The market did rally nearly 1,100 points the day Trump said that. Is “Buy the dip” at this point in time bad advice and wishful thinking–maybe.

          Mohammad,
          You are lost in the woods, too many trees for you to see through. It all begins with honest money and you can bet your last FIAT dollar THE FEDERAL RESERVE IS NOT HONEST MONEY nor is the Euro, Yen and Yuan etc. If you want to know what is coming read the BOOK OF REVELATION in the Christian Bible.
          It is all about credit and the price of credit, as there are very few paper dollars compared to electronic dollars. Now you know how the masses are controlled. Think about this Mohammad, if the grid comes down (electronic failure), how much money is available for trade? now you know how the Federal Reserve and all its counterparts can be defeated. A country can be defeated not by regular bombs but by EMP bombs as they will be brought to their knees with the infrastructure still intact.
          This is all setting up for THE MARK OF THE BEAST mentioned in the Biblical book of REVELATION.
          Don’t get me wrong Mohammad, you are a very bright
          person. With inflation, even paper dollars will become the enemy of the Federal Reserve as they could not print the amount required, keep in mind the only denominations that circulate are $1, $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 and the powers that be want to get rid of the $50 and $100 denominations, to keep the inflation game going it will eventually become all electronic money.

          Jallen

          • Mohammad

            Jallen,

            Why do you think our market rallied ~1100 points on the heel of the Chinese market rallying to the same magnitude after both were nose diving…??????

            I will leave you with this question to ponder on…!!

            Mohammad

            • Jallen

              Mohammad,
              The Market is manipulated. When you can put a number in a computer and call it money, you can even manipulate stock markets! Mohammad, have you not heard of the plunge protection team? Don’t worry Mohammad it is that part of the cycle to fleece stock investors.
              Do you not think the same players control both the Chinese and American stock markets etc.
              To convince you, study the housing market, i.e. a 160,000 dollar home is worth 370,000 dollars twenty years later with little to no upgrades.
              Mohammad, it is all about inflation, that is how you steal money from the nations savers, investors etc. In closing,
              I will give you one technique on stock market manipulation; look into GE and the purchasing of its own stock on borrowed money (credit) and what it did to their stock price. Many companies did the same thing. Boom, the Fed raises interest rates and the stock plunges. Keep digging Mohammad you will eventually GET IT.

      Mark … if you are right and the bank holiday is imposed a few days after Jan 20, 2019 … people better get their hands on some cash, gold and silver real fast … because when “all the markets” are shut down … people won’t be able sell anything (i.e. stocks, bonds, bitcoins, etc.) banks will close (and ATM’s and credit cards won’t work) … so people better make sure they are in a secure position now (where they don’t have to sell anything to get money) … cash, gold and silver in hand will be the only money during a holiday shutdown … so everyone better prepare now … listen to Jim Rickards as he gives a complete explanation of how the bankster Cabal intends to steal our wealth (and make the US dollar as worth less as a Mexican peso)!! … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIgGOovWR3E

    • Beverly Kingsford

      Columbus Day is a Bank holiday and it is also not a very recognized holiday. Hmmm.

      • ConcAmDad

        Trump said it wasa bubble/ now he takes credit and tells people to buy into it…… the fact that prople still give him credibility is as baffling as how the flopping Fed mouthpieces have any credibilty after yhe last decade if BS and lies.

        • Tin foil hat

          CONCAMDAD,
          When BS and lies are the only things that are keeping the system afloat, truth becomes not just an inconvience but the thin line between Venuezuela and us.
          Americans are not ready for the truth. If BS were alcohol, we would likely die from DT or BS withdrawal.
          The Deep State wants the BS to go on forever, Trump is preparing us to wean off the BS. That is the difference.

    Thanks Mr Hunter and a very MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and all.A saviour has been born who is CHRIST THE LORD.God has crashed through time and space to suffer and die for OUR sins.

  5. Anthony Australia

    Merry Christmas

  6. Tim McGraw

    You are right, Greg, “Debt and crime.” We need a debt jubilee. All private debts are forgiven. Jesus talks about this. The Assyrians, Jews, and Egyptians, as well as Einstein, knew that compound interest on debt was the strongest force in the universe.
    Our ancestors knew that debt would always outrun productivity so once in awhile all private debts had to be forgiven and the economy would recover… along with civilization.
    Merry Christmas.

    • FC

      My initial thought in the forgiveness on private debt is, what about the ones amongst us who have been responsible and living within our means…….are we punished?
      While the irresponsible ones are rewarded in a debt free asset they couldn’t afford in the first place.
      If so it appears Greed is Good, Gordon Gekko

      • Crybabe

        True, but irresponsible lenders should also be punished now and again as well.

        • FC

          And they will Crybabe, when the asset is sold under the borrowed amount.

      • Dr Darryl Jewett

        good question, FC. and to expand on your observation, Tim wrote about private debt. but what about us who spent all our lives subsisting within our means and then had the gov’t impose against us an illegal court-order (which courts administer as debts – and I’m thinking particularly of child-support but there are other similar court-orders administered similarly). and so there’s no “debt jubilee” for us. we’re the ones who were screwed the most. again, no matter what the solution to this problem, it’ll amount to the gov’t picking who wins and loses and who lives and dies. that’s why I’ve said before that there’s no gov’t solution to these problems created by gov’t. debt jubilee or anything. the solution is to remove gov’t imposition from all private and gov’t contracts, labor or otherwise. no debts. no child support. no anything. get rid of it all. but most of all, get rid of these huge gov’t bureaucracies that have imposed themselves in the first place. IRS, Fed Office of Child Support, etc… you can’t pick and choose. it’s either all or nothing. the whole problem in the past is gov’t picking and choosing. that can’t be the solution this time.

        • FC

          If that’s the case Dr, I go back to what my mother has always said me and I live by it……….you’ve made your bed, now lie in it.

          • Dr Darryl Jewett

            hmmm… don’t know what that means… you mean someone else made my bed?

      • Tim McGraw

        What the Assyrians, Israelites, Egyptians, and Einstein knew is that compound interest is the strongest force in the universe. The interest payments on the debts grow faster than the economy. They are like a leech that must be removed every once in awhile.
        Is it fair to savers? Of course not. Are 0% interest rates fare to savers?
        Is life fair?
        Look, if you want to get rid of this problem; outlaw usury. Bring back sound money.

        • DB Cooper

          OK, Tim, Do really fly a round engine?? DB

    • Beverly Kingsford

      We do need a debt jubilee, but that isn’t going to happen. The bankers and China and other countries who have suffered while America prospered so much because of the dollar being the reserve currency, are not going to forgive this debt so easily. And, the international bankers of the world have it as their goal to enslave the world population.
      So, there is going to be a fight and a big one.

  7. Tim McGraw

    ‘Something bad is coming.” Well, yeah. The only thing that we really own is our body and mind. Take care of that. The rest will fall into place.

    • paul ...

      Some don’t own their mind until they get out of military service … as USMC General Smedley Butlerandall said: “like most members of the military profession I never had an original thought until I left the service”
      … then … when it’s too late … these military men likely ask themselves “why did I go half way around the world blindly following orders to shoot and kill women and children”???”

  8. Tim McGraw

    Greg, we don’t “Need a savior.” We have to save our own souls. No cop outs allowed. As Gandhi said, “You want to change the world, well, start with yourself.”
    Now, don’t get me wrong. I believe in JC and how Christianity brought about Western Civilization and all of the wonders; refrigerators, cars, hot showers, flush toilets, anti-biotics……but here we are. Wars are as violent as ever though tens of millions don’t die like they did in WWI and WWII.
    We have to change ourselves. Jesus showed us the way, but He can’t save us.
    We have to save ourselves.

  9. William Stanley

    Mr. Hunter,
    Thanks, and have a wonderful Christ Mas!

    • Crybabe

      William, I have taken the liberty to reply to you on the current thread in order to keep the discussion current.

      You posted to me:
      “Zt,
      Would it matter to you if the money that was supposed to go into the pension fund was stolen and given to support programs that you voted for or of which you were the beneficiary?”

      No, because I believe that there are several reasons why pensions funds are underfunded (see my other posts). Government theft is only one cause. The whole concept of livable pensions is an unsustainable socialist experiment (and that has been with a century long bull market in financial assets. Can you imagine what will happen to pension funds if the predicted deflation hits?). And as most people on this site are against socialism I was just trying to offer a few helpful pointers.
      One of the misapprehensions people are labouring under is that it is the natural order for succeeding generations to pay for the retired generations’ pension pay outs. As I have outlined this is not how the pension system is supposed to work. This misunderstanding (societies misunderstanding not yours personally) has to be corrected before an informative discussion can take place on pensions.

      • William Stanley

        Crybabe,
        The deal was “you give me your labor now and we/government pay you later part of what we owe you.” The people that gave their labor acted in detrimental reliance on that promise, i.e., many of them could have made a higher salary working in private industry (and, yes, many of them couldn’t). In any event, they upheld their part of the bargain.
        There are lots of things that we can’t afford to pay for now. However, refusing to pay for something that someone else labored in good faith to give us is not morally the same as cutting funding on programs that give stuff to people who didn’t first labor to give us value. It seems to me that you are obfuscating that fundamental moral difference.
        I don’t think that you are guilty of this, but I sense that many people have a sort of cargo-cult mentality, i.e., that the stuff that people get is not produced by sacrifice and labor, that it is just out there waiting to be distributed and that everyone has the same moral right to receive it regardless of how much they have produced and saved.
        Worse, some people really understand the concept that some people actually produce, or have produced, more and saved more than others and have accrued more right to the stuff, even that which is produced by present labor. Unfortunately, some of those people want to blur that moral fact in order to justify obtaining more of the stuff for themselves, even though they didn’t make the sacrifice necessary in the first place.
        Of course, the reality is more complicated. Some people acquired wealth though theft and deception and yes, some pensions fall into that category. So do lots of other things.
        It’s not about taking care of the otherwise indigent out of charity. It’s about honoring a contract. In other words, IMO, focusing on pensions is subterfuge, especially because most of those pensions were earned fair and square for value given via labor provided.
        I understand that we/government have, or are reaching, the point where we cannot meet all of our obligations, i.e., I understand that we/government can’t get blood out of a stone. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean that we/government don’t morally owe retired government employees payment for what they sacrificed to provide. So rather than looking to them first when we renege on our obligations, we need to look lots of other places first.

        • Crybabe

          William you make some good points. However, if I make a deal with Mr X to undertake some work in exchange for payment I would not expect you to bail me out in the event that Mr X doesn’t fulfill his end of the bargain. I am not suggesting that retirees are not entitled to their pensions, merely that the size of the pension payments should be in proportion to the assets currently held in the pension fund. Should we bail out everyone’s private pensions as well as I know this has happened in the private sector without compensation. Also I believe that it is a myth that the average private sector worker earns more than the average public sector worker. TSI For every rich banker there are many more PAs, secretaries, cleaners etc working in the private sector without the job security, good pension and high wage. These are the people expected to bail out the state pensions.

          • Crybabe

            William, by the way I still watch the Man from Lamancha performance on YouTube. Outstanding!

            • paul ...

              Hey guys … lets tax the robots instead of printing the money for pensions like a bunch of commies!!

              • Crybabe

                Paul, I think you have a point there. If automation of production and services continues along the same growth trajectory, we will have to socialise the income generated from automation (by taxing the robots as you put it) or face 99% of the workforce being unemployed and having no purchasing power, as no government can support that level of unemployment. Capitalism (what we have left) has a double paradox to overcome. 1) In its quest to become more efficient capitalist companies will become more automated, require a smaller workforce and destroy the purchasing power of their consumer base on which they rely. This will also create an insurmountable problem for socialism as well as no one will be able to pay taxes. 2) The winners of capitalism will and have sought to undermine and destroy the free market in order to maintain their position of dominance and avoid becoming victims of the creative destruction. I am not writing this to bash capitalism but am pointing out the paradox in the hope that it can be addressed.

                • William Stanley

                  Crybabe,
                  I agree concerning the threat from robots, and AI more generally.
                  My best guess: warfare will eventually destroy advanced civilization and its capacity to produce robots.

              • William Stanley

                paul …,
                You’ve offered us a non sequitur: (1) many of the robots are in other countries, thus impossible to directly tax, (2) it’s not required to print money to pay our debts if we live within our means, and (3) paying one’s debts isn’t acting like “a bunch of commies.”

                • Crybabe

                  William, you just have a good argument for a one world government. A problem that can only be addressed through global governance. Angela merkels dream.

                  • William Stanley

                    Crybabe,
                    Some things are worse than death.
                    Live Free or Die!
                    (a shoutout to the folks from the Granite State).

            • William Stanley

              Crybabe,
              You sly dog! I suspected you were a man of discerning tastes.

          • William Stanley

            Crybabe,
            Thus we come full circle to what I previously characterized as the nub of the problem: Mr. X is you and I where government employees are concerned . . . unless this is not a government of the people, for the people, and by the people and we are no longer a nation.
            I would add that, if we are no longer a nation, then the globalists will have gained a huge victory and I would expect things to get very dire for everyone, including them.

          • Crybabe

            Private sector workers can be very poorly paid, such as waiters, bar staff, grocery store workers etc. and with none of the benefits of the public sector.

            • William Stanley

              Yes, Crybabe, partly because, with the help of the Globalists, China and others have been allowed to take over manufacturing and hollow out our economy (and, perhaps, yours).
              A number of months ago, Charles Turner, who comments here, posted a fantastic video on the problem.
              BTW, pay close attention to whatever Mr. Turner posts, he is one very smart and wise man — one whom you should search out and try to meet.
              Charles, if you’re reading this, would you be so kind as to provide that link again?

              • William Stanley

                Sorry, Charles, I found it. It’s the Charlie Rose interview of Sir Jimmy Goldsmith where he outlined some of the problems with unrestricted trade with China, India and Asia generally:

    This correction/crash should be a good test of Martin Armstrong’s Dow 40,000 prediction. He gets a lot of hero worship on here so want to find out if he is the real deal.

      TSI,
      LOL, at first I read “real deal” as “raw deal.”

        I suspect his subscribers (if he offers this service) will get a “raw deal” if his prediction doesn’t come off. ho ho ho…

    Some or my sources say that Trump put Powell there to make the Fed look bad and that it’s all a game. Well, I disagree, the Fed had to lose control at some point and Trump is truly angry.
    As Rob Kirby says, “it works until it doesn’t” and we are at the “it doesn’t” phase. Hallelujah!!!
    This is a tremendous Christ mas present to the World where truth and justice and financial honesty returns once again. The best present of all is that the Fed lost credibility along with the enemy media.
    2018 exited with a bang!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS GREG, YOUR GUESTS, AND YOUR VIEWERS! CHIP

    • Chip

      WOW Greg very inspirational message. Thank You! Chip

    • Crybabe

      Chip, just as a follow-up regarding the previous discussion: most pensions are underfunded (think Chicago) due to 1) governments stealing pension contributions, 2) assets bought with pension contributions underperforming due to artificial suppression of interest rates and 3) an underestimation of the required pension contributions. Any collapse in asset prices will further exacerbate this issue. On retirement a person’s pension should be paid out from their pension contributions (and government add ons) over the course of their working life. If this is insufficient, for one of the above reasons, that is between you and the government. The present situation is that the pension contributions made by people currently working are being used to cover the shortfall. In other words, people in employment are directly funding pension payments to other people who are currently retired. In effect, MY pension contributions are paying for YOUR retirement when MY pension contributions should be going into a fund for MY future retirement. Anything else is a Ponzi scheme. Many people on here claim to be against socialism yet seem to think that it is ok for the labour of younger generations to make good on the ridiculous pension promises of previous governments; in effect a bail out. Is it not bad enough that the younger generation is overloaded with intergenerational debt without having their pension contributions sucked into a black hole?

      • Crybabe

        It is often noted that the pension system is heading for a disaster due to demographic factors. To elaborate, baby boomers were numerically superior to the previous generation so could afford to support their pension payments. In contrast, baby boomers will be too numerous and live too long to be supported in retirement by younger generations. However, this is only true if the pension contributions of the babyboomers are insufficient or non-existent. There should theoretically be no need for pension contributions from a younger generation to pay the pensions of older generations.

        • Chip

          The fact is that people are getting SS benefits that never paid into the system. THAT is the problem… Chip

          • Chip

            AND, if I die before getting out what I paid in, the Government keeps the money. That should help keep it solvent if others who paid in nothing were not receiving benefits… Chip

            • Crybabe

              Why are all the pension schemes underfunded then?

              • William Stanley

                Crybabe,
                They’re underfunded because people don’t want to pay what they owe. They would rather rob Peter to pay Paul than pay Peter what they owe him.

          • Crybabe

            That is correct but that doesn’t take away from the fact that pensions = socialism.

            • William Stanley

              Crybabe,
              Re: “pensions = socialism.”
              No, pensions equal deferred payment for services rendered. They’re just provisions in good ole free-market contracts.

              • Crybabe

                That point is debatable if you include government add ons. In the U.K. the government supplements the pension contributions. However, a pension bailout is definitely socialism same as with the bank bailouts.

              • Dr Darryl Jewett

                no they are not… where do you come up with this stuff??

          • Dr Darryl Jewett

            I don’t know how anyone gets SS benefits if they didn’t pay into the system. maybe illegal immigrants can. I dunno. but I do know that many people are getting benefits many orders of magnitude greater than that what they invested. meaning that before most even started collecting SS, their benefits already ran out. the average SS beneficiary (real domestic legal citizen) receives way more benefits than they were anticipated or supposed to receive. because the gov’t kept increasing the amount relative to GDP or inflation year over year. gave them more benefits than intended in exchange for votes and absolute power. and when the gov’t ran out of SS benefits that were invested by those who were receiving them, the gov’t went after all the money that had been and was still being invested by those who are still working. and now the gov’t has run out of those too. so it’s invented a bunch of other mechanisms to tax those still working as an excuse to steal the proceeds of labor and give to those who never earned those proceeds. in exchange for votes and absolute power. for instance, part of your gov’t retirement is paid with subsidies attached to child support and gov’t instituted child trafficking. the government literally has created a massive system and bureaucracy to promote the kidnapping and trafficking of children. almost exclusively from fathers, forcing them into slavery to pay the ransom and the cost of trafficking. in 50 yrs, I don’t know anyone who receives benefits who’ve never paid into the system. perhaps illegal immigrants. maybe some women. I dunno. obviously you have some thoughts. but i don’t know anyone. and you’d think that with all my research and experience, i’d have encountered at least one. I don’t even know if it’s possible. but it wouldn’t surprise me. that being written, I am familiar with more than one-hundred-million people presently who are receiving benefits in great excess (orders of magnitude) to what they invested. THAT’s the real problem. it’s massively large. and real. and easily documented, cross-referenced and verified. every single man and woman from the greatest and baby-boom generations who are receiving SS, are receiving the investments and proceeds of the labor from later generations. the investments of the greatest and boomer gens ran out decades ago. where do you think all your money comes from?? THAT’s the big problem. not the very small proportion (if any – as I explained, I don’t know anyone) of people who might be receiving benefits but didn’t pay into the system. the only people who are receiving benefits on a massive scale who are the problem, paid into the system, but received already in great excess to what they paid in plus all the interest and are now completely dependent upon the slave labor of later generations. THAT’s why our economy is Ponzi scheme. maybe you’ve heard people refer to it that way. well…. that’s what they’re talking about. people like you who’s benefits already expired decades ago, but you still keep getting them and don’t know where they came from. they came from me. you’re welcome. oh I forgot, you didn’t thank me because you’re an ungrateful narcissist. and a stupid communist who doesn’t know who pays your bills because you think that you pay them. becaus you think you’re a libertarian or a conservative republican. what a joke.

            • William Stanley

              DDJ,
              I don’t know if it surprises you, but many present retirees paid into pension funds and didn’t stay employed there long enough to “vest,” i.e., get to receive any pension at all. Not only has that happened to me a couple of times, I also don’t get as large a SS check as I would if I had been in prison for the last forty years instead of working for most of that time. Some strange rules out there.
              BTW, DDJ, I have no doubt that you’ve been treated unfairly by the divorce courts. It really is a scandal how frequently men are treated unfairly there.

        • William Stanley

          Crybabe,
          Agreed, but that would assume responsible citizens and responsible governments actually provide the necessary funds to meet their promises.

          • paul ...

            Lets make the companies that use robots pay both Social Security taxes and pension payments for every robot that use … it’s a win win for humans … as these robots will never collect Social Security or a pension and we don’t have to become commies printing money to cover these payments!!

            • Tin foil hat

              paul …
              ” as these robots will never collect Social Security or a pension and we don’t have to become commies printing money to cover these payments!!”

              Their labour support the dollar or enable the printing of money to support not only our pensions, S.S. and likely Crybabe’s tuition, but also our military.

      • SOD

        Cry,
        As a Boomer who most assuredly won’t see much of that fat comfortable pension he was promised, I agree with you, this boondoggle shouldn’t be placed on the backs of our up and coming generations. I do wonder, however, just how many of our younger generations won’t jump at the chance to have their college loans forgiven by our conniving political elite when this is offered up to them? Will this be considered a bail out or a just solution for being– another victim of a questionable promise? SOD

        • Dr Darryl Jewett

          a better question for you SOD – how many of our younger generations were smart enough not to take out a college loan? especially when you consider (at least for a man in the US with a degree in STEM – the only real degree – a degree in middle management or business accounting or God forbid public school teaching are not real degrees) that for decades such degrees (STEM – fundamental to any civilization) yielded no returns (on average – meaning that for some there were returns but for most there weren’t and in many cases, a degree actually didn’t just not help a graduate financially but actually hurt them) on the investment or worse: cost more than they are worth.

          • SOD

            DDJ,
            A STEM degree is the only real degree?? I certainly find that assertion rich. I know a lot of judges, investment speculators, antique specialists and CEO’s that command the needed expertise that allows them to do quite nicely even without a STEM designation. While I probably wouldn’t select a major in gender studies, social justice or even that of a vaunted community organizer–I suspect you’d be spot on that these particular degrees would probably cost much more than they are worth to most students. As to how many students are smart enough to avoid college loans? I would say with the cost of higher education it would be only the select few that could swing college today without a loan or help of some kind. SOD

      • William Stanley

        Crybabe,
        Re: “If this is insufficient, for one of the above reasons, that is between you and the government.”
        Wouldn’t the same argument apply to your generation’s forthcoming shortfall: when, for whatever reason, the government fails to provide the funds to cover what it is promising its employees? That one shortfall happened to go to present retirees is little different morally from when money that should have gone to provide funding for present retirees went somewhere else (including employees who retired before them). Why isn’t that also just a problem between you/present government workers and the government? (which apparently you conceive as some entity different from “we the people”). Yes, many present employees will not make out a well as present government retirees, but present employees also know the present deal. Some of them are not offering their services subject to the same promises that present retirees did. Their detrimental reliance is different. Yet, no doubt, the generation following you will make the same argument as to who they should first stiff on the promises their government made to your generation’s government workers.

        • Crybabe

          May I firstly say that I enjoy debating with you and have conceeded to some of your arguments in the past. On this matter you have raised some points that I agree with. In response to your questions above the difference is the babyboomers appear to expect a full pension as a right, whilst I have accepted that I won’t receive a pension when I retire (surely the great deflation will have destroyed the pension paradigm by then) and my contributions are merely paying for someone else’s pension. The best that I can hope for is to stay healthy enough to work at least part time into old age. Once my capacity for labour has diminished such that I cannot provide for myself I shall probably shrivel up and die, just as certain animals do when they can no longer hunt or forage for food. Such is the natural order. If the babyboomers did have to fund the pensions of the previous generation the burden would have been much less as 1) the war generation was much smaller due to war casualties, shorter life expectancy and lower population originally, 2) greater economic expansion post war and 3) corresponding asset boom in real estate and financial assets. Also, I am speculating that war generations’ pensions were lower per person in real terms.

          • paul ...

            Crybaby … lets tax all the computers Wall Street uses to pay our SS and pensions (as all computers used in business can be defined as robots) … Wall Street alone can provide a big chunk of the SS and Pension shortfall!!

          • William Stanley

            Crybabe,
            There is only one reason why you’re not already over here getting ready to join the resistance if need be: you love your homeland too much.
            Okay, so be it. You’ll fight and die there . . . or just maybe you’re going to fight and win there. No way are you going down without a fight. Giving up is not in your genes, and it doesn’t reflect your culture, either. Sorry to give you the “bad” news about who you are.

          • Dr Darryl Jewett

            @ Cry – you can do what you want, but I wouldn’t waste time debating with people like William or Chip because they simply don’t want to accept responsibility for their behavior. they’re only interested in finding excuses to blame others. and any argument they make is going to serve that end. they will never concede anything even the truth.

            there are two growing demographics in the US represented almost exclusively by Gen xers and Millennials (I suppose a very small proportion of Boomers born after 1955): (1) The Working Homeless (men who have at least one full-time job but also live on the street) and (2) men who continue to work at jobs way beyond that which is age appropriate for their health and ability.

            the past two gens (Greatest gens and Boomers) never had either of these demographics even during the Great Depression (or not in significant proportions to be recognized as a distinct demographic). I suppose you can add a third demographic: men into their 20’s and even 30’s who still live at home with their parents (if they’re lucky enough and their parents let them live with them – although more than half of Gen xers and Millennials were alienated from their fathers, and for many it’s not an option).

            all these men work so hard and yet can’t afford a standard of living above poverty or even squalor and homelessness because all of their income is being taken away and given to other demographics in exchange for votes and absolute power? demographics that don’t need but want.

            Greatest gens and Boomers represent approximately 170-million people in the US. Xers and Millennials approximately 160-million people. but only about half of millennials have graduated into adulthood. and about two-thirds of them identify as communists.

            so Xers and Millennials represent about 105-million of the electorate. Boomers and Greatest gens about 170-million. politicians know which side their bread is buttered on. they also know that women represent a growing majority of the electorate. any politician (legislator, judge or law enforcer) knows that to keep his/her job, s/he can’t decide against a woman… ever. it’s career and financial suicide.

              DDJ,
              Re: ” they will never concede anything even the truth”
              I’ll bet that Chip agrees with this concession to the truth: if you were productive enough to get a well-paying job, you’d have one (or be self employed).
              You wouldn’t have time to spend whining about how unfair the court system has been to force you to support your children.
              Sorry that I can’t give you any more attention tonight: my girlfriend is looking pretty attractive right now, and I have an early tee-time tomorrow.

            • paul ...

              Doc … you say “there is approximately 160-million Millennials in the US and about two-thirds of them identify as communists” … 2/3rds of 160 million is 106.56 million commies … this means about 1/3rd of the entire US population of 320 million are commies … God the Father had the same problem in Heaven with Satan and his followers being 1/3rd of Heavens population … God the Father’s “final solution” was to round up all Satan’s “commie perverts” in Heaven and send them down to Earth so “we humans” could take care of them (assigning the alien grey’s to watch over the Demons to make sure none of them escaped back into heaven) while we humans took care of God’s problem for him … our solution … under Trump … is to round up these commie perverts … and send them all to GITMO (for hanging) after trial of course!!!

            • Crybabe

              Either the people that created the system are really dumb or really clever. Have they intentionally created a system that will crash on a historic level in order to pave the way for a one world government to solve all our problems?

    Merry Christmas Greg.
    A message to those that think Trump is being rude and letting down your allies.
    Germany, the 4th largest economy in the world spends 1.2% of its GDP on NATO.(Plus they have the distinction for instigating the last two world wars). The USA spends 3.57% of GDP. That is 2.37% more than Germany. Or 459 billion a year more in percentage terms. Yet your politicians are squabbling over a few billion over a wall and are concerned about how Trump speaks to your allies ( fair weather friends). . There are very, very few politicians in Washington or your media that are putting America first, otherwise they would be applauding Trump for exposing the elephants in the room.

    • Dr Darryl Jewett

      @ Charles – I don’t disagree with the sentiment of your comment…

      BUT Germany didn’t start the last two World Wars… the central banks did. Germany was defending herself against them and the countries that allowed themselves to be hosts of the central banks. the general behavior of the other countries and what the allied forces did to Germany before and particularly after WWI is unconscionable. WWII was an inevitable outcome after WWI. for which Germany is absolved entirely of responsibility.

      Germany may or may not be contributing its fair share to NATO (I argue that it’s not but for different reasons), but the US represents five-percent of the world’s population (Germany 1.25), we (the US) are the epicenter of the world’s economic problems (we didn’t invent usury but we did invent many loony and unconscionable mechanisms for implementing it and exported them to the rest of the world), and we believe (wrongly) that we have the moral authority to be the policeman to the world. We do not.

      I don’t think the question is whether or not Germany or the US are investng the proper amount in NATO but why any of us are investing anything at all. our forefathers warned us about and discouraged endless foreign entanglements for a reason. your argument that Germany isn’t contributing enough misses the point that none of us should be involved in foreign entanglements and shouldn’t be contributing anything at all to an arrangement like NATO and its endless foreign entanglements. Just my two cents….

        It takes big money to go to war. The ultimate question is; who financed Hitler’s war machine and why. This much I can tell you, a lot of gold left the United States and found its way to Germany. Keep in mind Germany was broke after WORLD WAR 1 and was paying war reparations.

          The investment firm, Brown Brothers Harriman was home to a lot of powerful US money. Its management included Grandad (Prescott) Bush.
          Allen Dulles, later of OSS and CIA fame, and his brother, John Foster Dulles who worked for Sullivan & Cromwell (the law firm entwined with Brown Brothers Harriman) and who later become Secretary of State, were were also closely associated. The lot of them were connected with German financial interests.
          Of course, the son of Grandad Bush, the late George H.W. Bush, became CIA Director and then, later, President.
          There is a picture of Queen Elizabeth giving the Nazi salute as a child and, no doubt, the Windsor family had some financial interests in Germany as well.

    On another note: Crime and Debt. It would be so gratifying to see an end to it all. I am so tired of having life hijacked by these monsters. They steal everything and get away with it, century after century. Oddly, I still have hope. Because for the first time we are seeing something being done about it. Plus we are talking about it. The wicked can only endure so much light and truth before it destroys them. Death by a thousand rays of light. May our freedom come quickly. This can only occur during our Lords presence. So in my mind our Lord is here, or very close. There is a lot of shaking going on. Long live Freedom!

    As you’ve said, this is a replay of 2008. Only this time it’s global and there won’t be any bailouts. I would advise those willing to listen to lay in as much food as you can, while you still you can, before hyper inflation hits the grocery stores. Once liquidity begins to seize up in the banks, the markets will react very rapidly driving up prices to cover their loses.

    Hi Greg,

    I am hoping you will read this. A while back (2014), you had a guest on named Brandon Smith who I have been following ever since at his blog alt-market.com. I had never heard of him before, and actually found out about him from you. Since then, he has been the most accurate forecaster out of all the people I follow by far. He correctly predicted Trump would win which I even thought was crazy. He posted this below on 12/24/ on his blog, and I will put a link to it under it.

    “Trump is part of the agenda; a pied piper. He is surrounded by banking elites in the White House, and his own commerce secretary is a Rothschild agent who bailed him out of his debts in his Taj Mahal casino in the 1990’s.

    The Q stuff is clearly a psyop to distract everyone away from these facts and lure liberty activists into supporting Trump blindly while he engages in a WWF wrestling match with the Fed. They will wrap the entire crash not only around the image of Trump as a “populist” but they will also blame conservative ideals in general.

    Trump’s job is to play the role of the bumbling populist villain who took credit for the stock bull market for two years, then crashed everything, and then tried to blame “innocent” central bankers who were only attempting to “normalize” the economy. I do not support puppet politicians, which is why I don’t recommend anyone buy into Trump. If Trump attempts to initiate martial law in the wake of this crisis, I will fight him just as hard as I will fight the globalists.”

    http://www.alt-market.com/msm/3610-government-shutdown-my-be-prolonged-just-in-time-for-the-stock-market-crash (scroll down to comments to find quote)

    I think this sums it up perfectly what is going on and is going to happen. I was initially fooled by Trump myself, but I have since seen the light. So many conservatives in the liberty movement are being duped by Trump, so I am also trying to wake people up about it myself. Maybe you could have Brandon Smith back on as a guest? I think that would be awesome.

    Sincerely,
    Brent

    • Greg Hunter

      I am not sure he’s correct Brent. This is a huge problem to clean up and it is deeply ingrained in America and is complicated and difficult to clean up. You and Brandon didn’t think this was going to be easy and cleaned up in a couple of years did you? If you ask me Brandon is falling for the operation to divide and concur Trumps base. Oh and here’s my favorite part, Trump donates his salary and get’s $1 per year. Brandon left that part of the “scam” out. He’s wrong.
      Greg

    • Rich

      Brent,
      I do agree with you that brandon smith hands down has been the most accurate forecaster. We’ll see if that continues?

    • FC

      I agree with you Brent, whether Brandon is right or wrong his analysis makes a lot sense to me.

    • William Stanley

      Brent,
      For what it’s worth, I also follow Mr. Smith’s blog. However, like Greg, I found the article that you’ve cited as unconvincing, despite the factors you point to. It doesn’t account for all the Russiagate malarkey or all the never-Trump BS. Clearly, the deep state, including the Fed, never wanted Trump to be President. So he couldn’t have been part some ongoing deep-state plan.
      I did find the pre-market gyrations the night of Trump’s election victory to be highly suspicious. Why did the pre-markets first fall some thousand points when the tide turned against Hillary and toward Trump, and then that same night, within hours, completely unwind and reverse, and then go into a two year “Trump” rally? That sudden reversal seemed to me — at the time and since — to be clear evidence of market tampering by the Plunge Protection Team, which was then still under control of Obama/Hillary/Deep State. Why didn’t they just push that crash right along and blame its cause as stemming from market fear and lack of confidence in Trump? There was no need to delay things. Indeed, it seems to me that the delay has furthered the destruction of the credibility of the mass media, as well as a major unmasking of the Deep State. That seems an unlikely aspect of any plan in which Trump would have been playing any part. To me, the more likely explanation is that they were surprised and panicked by Trump’s victory, and in disarray. So they decided to temporarily stabilize the situation until Obama left office while they withdrew and reorganized their attack on Trump.

      • FC

        William Stanley, firstly I’d like to say I enjoy reading your comments but on this one I disagree somewhat.
        I’ve always said Trump would be President for the very reason that the Deep State and the Fed wanted him there as he is not cut from the same cloth and he would make the perfect escape goat for when the economic collapses.
        Ross Perot’s timing in 1992 didn’t suit the Globalists back then because he could hear the giant sucking sound going South and the fact the economy was repairable.
        But now they know this is irreparable and the Globalists can not been seen as the villains.
        Admittedly when Hillary announced her intention to run I immediately thought she was going to be the first female President but that was short lived when I started to consider that the economy will inevitably collapse and will not see out another 8 years of stimulus and the last thing they wanted was the first female Globalist President at the helm when the collapse of this magnitude occurs, can you imagine the outrage from all the Feminists alone not to mention the Soy Boys…………….but alas, along comes Trump.

  51. Ivan

    Famous quote by
    Charles August Lindbergh
    This Act (the Federal Reserve Act, Dec. 23rd 1913) establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President signs this bill, the invisible government by the Monetary Power will be legalized. The people may not know it immediately, but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed. The trusts will soon realize that they have gone too far even for their own good. The people must make a declaration of independence to relieve themselves from the Monetary Power. This they will be able to do by taking control of Congress. Wall Streeters could not cheat us if you Senators and Representatives did not make a humbug of Congress… The greatest crime of Congress is its currency system. The worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking bill. The caucus and the party bosses have again operated and prevented the people from getting the benefit of their own government.

      Tad,
      You are wrong. There have been changes made. There are a heck of a lot more people who are aware of the banking conspiracy in the world that is trying to destroy the whole world. Trump knows about it and is trying to do something about it. I believe we are going to go through a hell of a time to pay for our sins as a nation. But, this nation will be preserved according to God’s plan. Lots of people are going to have to fight for that freedom though. It’s not going to be just handed back to us. Men will have to fight and die for their children who will live on. This scenario has happened all throughout the scriptures.

    Greg: Merry Christ mas to you!

    I just listened to Alex N again. He is getting everything he said correct. I think the Trump withdrawal from Syria is also a threat to the Deep State for not giving him his Wall. He threatened to take the troops from Afghanistan too. That will be much more upsetting to them. He said today, if I heard correctly that the troops would stay in Iraq for the time being. So he has a standing threat to the Deep State on Afghanistan. Their Opium trade is at stake. He wants them to give him the Wall. One big problem is that several government agencies are still filled with traitors, State Dept, CIA, FBI, Justice and maybe a few in the Pentagon. State is filled with them! If he doesn’t take the criminals down with tribunals we are in big trouble.

    Hi Greg,
    Please remember, when I told you to watch from Dec. 21 through Jan. 2 it was because of the actual volume of the stock market during that period of time and that it coincided with a Super Cycle but, don’t forget that the cycle runs until almost the end of February so what we are seeing now could just be the beginning, or it could be very limited and end next week.

    I think that the fact that the next lunar eclipse (2/20-2/21) will be a blood moon will add a lot of drama but will have no effect upon the length or intensity of the cycle itself.
    Lo Iyrah!
    Shalom,
    CC

    • Country Codger

      Sorry Greg,
      I didn’t realize I put down the wrong date for the eclipse. It is the night of January 20th and the early morning hours of January 21 and will be visible across the Americas.
      ((I typed out the month so I could be sure I got it right.))

    Merry ChristMas Greg,
    In your message you mentioned the JFK assassination. If you dive deep enough into two events like 911 and JFK’s murder it is possible to produce ties that suggest both events were carried out by the same folks. For as my mentor, Dr Stan Monteith, used to begin every program on his radioliberty .com site with this; “Reality is usually scoffed at, illusion is usually king. But in the battle for survival of western civilization it is going to be reality, not illusion or delusion that will determine what the future will bring”. More on this later but first back to JFK.
    You mentioned your doubts regarding Lee Harvey bin Laden, er I mean Oswald. That is a good start. Did you know Lee Harvey was CIA? Did you know he had an alias ALex Hidell? Did you know his best friend in Dallas was a man named George De Mohrenschildt? It was De Mohrenschildt(CIA), who through a common friend, set Lee Harvey up with the job at the Texas School Book Depository. The common friend was a woman named Ruth Paine. Once Oswald began working at the Depository he and his wife moved out of their apartment with Lee renting a room close to the depository and his wife Marina, moving in with Ruth Paine. The Oswalds moved all their belongings into Ruths garage. Of course the rifle that was found on the sixth floor of the School Book Depository was in that garage.
    Here is my ChristMas gift to you, a one hour blast from the past! Dr Stan died in 2014 at 84 years old. Dr Stan followed a path similar to a source you hold in high esteem as he began as an orthopedic surgeon. I believe it was in the 1960s when he shifted his focus onto for lack of a better term, the new world order conspiracy.
    The link I have provided at the end is of Dr Stan interviewing a man named Bruce Adamson. After Adamson won a large medical settlement he spent his time and money investigating De Mohrenschildt which is covered in this interview. As with Dr Stan’s interview he interjects relative info so listen carefully. You should find this interview amazing.
    After you hear this consider that I listened to this man 3 or 4 hours every day from the time I retired in 2000 until Dr Stan died. His info tied with lots of other research and mu own life’s experiences have given me a fairly deep and wide knowledge base so I strongly encourage you to take the time to listen.

    Hi Greg,
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Great work, I visit your site regularly.
    Just ran across this story. I think you’ll get a kick out of it. A quick background: this site is put up by Russians, working in and reporting news in the USA. Mueller has charged that this group was connected with the Russians who were indicted for the bots that allegedly affected the last election. Once you read the story, you see why Mueller and his crew were so down on these guys. Whose side do these Russians appear to be on? You tell me.

    My wife and I listened to your Christmas message on my smart phone, driving up north Christmas day to see her dad in Chico. Good stuff!
    We diverted and drove thru the town of Paradise first, and that place was obviously burned badly (cars and homes) but I was expecting it much worse in the landscape.

    The Newman CA cop killer suspect was just apprehended in Bakersfield this morning, and they are hauling him back up to Modesto. Our Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson gave the most remarkable press conference at noon (Dec. 28) KCRA 3. I never heard such an outstanding press conference, and the slain Officer Singh’s brother was sobbing unceasing which would make any viewer ball with tears. I cannot attach the link, but definitely worth watching as the Sheriff contrasted the legal citizen Officer Singh to the suspect who was an illegal gang member with a DUI record. Apparently was being pulled over for drunk driving on early morning after Christmas.
    Newman is a rural small town 9 miles to my south as I pass through there often. Helicopters and police were all around here the morning of the shooting, and the suspect abandoned his vehicle at rural trailer park about a mile from a friend of mine. In fact, my wife works at Macy’s in Modesto and she had helped assist the slain officer and his wife at Christmas last year — she said they were the nicest young couple (and they just had a newborn months ago this Christmas.)
    May Officer Singh’s soul rest in God’s arms, and may God bless his family and new child.
    The WALL is sure looking better all the time, and SANCTUARY anything is purely wrong and criminal!!

    Paul – President Trump never told anyone to buy car stocks to my knowledge. After the market had dropped he hinted it was a good time to buy(time will tell). Trump also told GM he wasn’t happy about the recent plans to close plants. Trump persuaded US car companies to invest in the US. If you recall, Obama gave GM money to build plants in Mexico, which was not in the US workers best interest. Trump stands up for US worker while Obama did just the opposite.
