Debt Bubble to End All Bubbles – Michael Snyder

By Greg Hunter’s 

Journalist and book author Michael Snyder says corporate debt is at record highs standing at $10 trillion. Snyder points out debt is setting records in every aspect of the economy and contends, “If you include all other forms of corporate debt not listed on the stock exchanges, that brings the total to $15.5 trillion, which is equivalent to 74% of GDP. We’ve never seen anything like this before in all of U.S. history. That is just one form of debt and how our society has grown the debt. People need to realize the only reason why we have any prosperity in this country today is because it is fueled by debt. We have been building up this bubble, and it is the bubble to end all bubbles. Look at consumers. U.S. consumers are now $14 trillion in debt, which is an all-time record. State and local governments are at all-time debt record levels. The U.S. government . . . we just hit $23 trillion in debt, more than double since the last financial meltdown. . . . We are stealing from future generations more than $100 million every single hour of every single day. This is a crime beyond comprehension, and it’s been going on more than a decade. . . .All the debt has bought for us is more time to expand the bubble for relative stability. Meanwhile, we are literally committing national suicide and literally destroying the future of this country and the future of this republic. We are destroying everything the founders built by insatiable greed in this generation.”

Snyder says you don’t have to wait for the next recession because it’s already started. Snyder says, “Eventually, this whole thing is going to come crashing down. This thing is not sustainable. Here in the United States, we are already in a manufacturing recession. We are already in a transportation recession. We’re already in a corporate earnings recession. We are already in trouble that I document regularly on my website. We are already seeing dozens of data points that an economic slowdown is already happening. This is what we will notice first. We will go into a recession, and things are going to start getting bad, but beyond that . . . we are headed for the Greatest Depression. It’s the perfect storm. . . . We are talking about the breakdown of trade with China. . . . We have witnessed the complete and total breakdown of relations between the United States and China. . . . They (China) view us (America) as their primary global enemy. So, there is not going to be any kind of comprehensive trade agreement. You can forget that, and that has been one of the only things holding this stock market up.”

Snyder says no China trade deal will cause the stock market to “lose hope for the future.” Snyder predicts stocks will “fall at least back to its long term averages, which is 40% to 50% lower than stocks are today.”

Snyder also says, “The system is failing. People that have faith in Wall Street, people that have faith in Washington, people that have faith in the Federal Reserve and in the system, ultimately, they are going to be extremely, extremely disappointed. Most Americans are going to be blindsided by this, and most people have no idea what’s coming, absolutely no idea. We’re not just talking about Mad Max. We’re not just talking about Armageddon. We’re talking about the end of America. In the long term, if you want to prepare, you need to prepare for the end of our country.”

    Greg, I haven’t even looked at the interview yet but in reading what Michael says in your write up, I know it is going to be good. You and Michael are two of my favorite truth tellers. Thank you so very much for having him. He is a man of principle and gives hard hitting objective analysis and commentary. Can’t wait to hit the play button.

    • Greg Hunter

      Thanks Marti!

      • Scott

        Michael spoke at our church (Spirit of Prophecy Church) a few years ago. Had the privilege of hearing him for an entire weekend. Hoping he’ll come back.

      • Robert

        What happened to Greg Manarino? He used to be on all the time. Just curious.

        • iwitness02

          Mannarino announced last summer that he wasn’t going to do anymore interviews. I can’t speak for Mannarino, but my impression is that he believes the Fed and the central banks will hold on to their power and control.
          This site, and others, believe there is hope for escaping the unconstitutional Fed, and central banking system.
          I still follow Mannarino, but I have the same hope as Greg Hunter. That we will ultimately throw off the Fed and get out country back.

        • JC

          Robert, Greg H explained some time ago that Greg M won’t be back at USA Watchdog anymore. You must have missed it. Simply put, it’s due to differences of opinion.

      • iwitness02

        the chip wouldn’t be my cup of tea. (they want me to have it)
        I’m more interested in things that gov. doesn’t want me to have.
        You know, like freedom.

      People in America didn’t know the fact of the riots in Hong Kong. They are not protestors but rioters. They are not for so call democracy or freedom instead youth were brain washed by the others for policital gain. Hong Kong has been top 3 (most freedom) in the world for years ranked by the international organization. The western media were so biased only reporting the negative of the government not the horrific things done by the rioters.
      Seeing is believing. If it happen in the other countries a lot of people were killed.

      THE MARK OF THE BEAST (A response to Stan’s question: “Will you accept the chip?”)

      All of us should search the Scriptures (Acts 17:11) on this topic. There is much we need to understand going forward. Failing to study leaves us at risk of confusing truth with error, which plays right into the hand of the enemy of souls who “deceiveth the whole world” (Rev. 12:9) “that they should believe a lie” (2 Thess. 2:11).

      We must ask ourselves: WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?

      There is so much speculation and human reasoning blowing around on this subject that we need to get back to the Bible for our understanding and explanation. We are counseled by Paul not to be “children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive” (Ephesians 4:14). We are admonished: “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).

      The mark of the beast is about WORSHIP — not an ID card, or an electrode placed in your hand, or a tattoo on your forehead. Please, go back and read Revelation 13 through 22 until this principle of worship becomes clear. Either our behavior is demonstrating allegiance to God on His terms or we are following the example of Cain and doing things our own way. Isaiah 4:1 perfectly describes the attitude of many “Christians” today:

      “And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach” (Isaiah 4:1).

      The introduction of an ID card or an electronic chip may be a method to facilitate the prohibition against buying and selling (Rev. 13:16), or it may be the first step in Satan’s attempt to meld humans with machines so he can totally obliterate the image of God in mankind, but an electrode itself is not the mark of the beast. The mark is placed on whoever refuses to WORSHIP God (see especially Rev. 14:11-12) in the manner He has revealed to us through his word, the Bible.

      If we are going to try to understand the mark of the beast, we must first understand what the Bible is describing when it uses the symbolism of a beast.

      Revelation 13 presents us with two beasts for examination. The first beast rises “up out of the sea” (verse 1) while the second beast comes “up out of the earth” (verse 11). The chapter also tells us the second beast “causeth” all “to receive a mark” (verse 16) and “causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to WORSHIP the first beast” (verse 12).

      The word “causeth” in both verse 12 and 16 is from the Greek word ποιέω poieo, poy-eh´-o; (Strong’s 4160) which means: to make or do (in a very wide application, more or less direct): — abide, + agree, appoint, x avenge, + band together, be, bear, + bewray, bring (forth), cast out, cause, commit, + content, continue, deal, + without any delay, (would) do(-ing), execute, exercise, fulfil, gain, give, have, hold, x journeying, keep, + lay wait, + lighten the ship, make, x mean, + none of these things move me, observe, ordain, perform, provide, + have purged, purpose, put, + raising up, x secure, shew, x shoot out, spend, take, tarry, + transgress the law, work, yield.

      The obvious question at this point: What does all this mean?

      Let’s start with the Biblical definition of a prophetic beast. Daniel 7 begins with Daniel receiving a dream from the Lord while he slept in his bed. In his dream, Daniel sees “four great beasts” come “up from the sea” (verse 3). Wow! This is the same language found in Revelation 13:1 describing the beast from the sea! Coincidence? Not in the Bible. Every bit of information has meaning.

      In Daniel 7:17 an angel explains to Daniel the mystery of the beasts: “These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.” So, we now know that a beast represents a kingdom or a nation. We use the same imagery today: USA=an eagle, Russia=a bear, England=a lion, etc.

      Let’s go back to the beasts found in Revelation 13. The first beast is seen coming out of the sea by John. What does the sea represent? In Revelation 17 John paints a picture of “the great whore that sitteth upon many waters” (verse 3). In verse 15 an angel explains to John: “The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” So, ”waters” or “the sea” represents people. Also see Daniel 7:2-3, Isaiah 8:7, 17:12-13, 57:20; Jeremiah 51:13 and many other passages in the Bible to confirm this.

      Using the Bible as our guide, we now understand that a beast represents a nation (civil government) and waters represent humanity or the peoples being ruled over by the various beast powers or governments. At some point in the future, “a beast” will cause all the world to receive “a mark” which will seal the destiny of those who go along with the program.

      How do nations enforce their edicts? Through its laws. Consider Daniel 3. Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah were commanded to bow down to a golden image erected by the government in violation of the 2nd Commandment (see Exodus 4-6). The commandment of the king “caused” all to bow or they would be thrown into a fiery furnace. What “a time of trouble” (see Daniel 12:1) for them!

      This event, documented in Daniel 3, is a mirror image of what will happen in the future. Paul counsels: “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come” (1 Corinthians 10:11). Solomon warns: “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9).

      Remember earlier I mentioned the Greek meaning of “causeth”? If you look back at the definition you will note it can be translated as “transgress the law.” The choice offered to Hannah, Mishael and Azariah was to either follow the edicts of the world or stand for the Lord. The same two choices will be made to God’s people in the coming time of trouble. Being courageous when the whole world turns against the Word of God will determine our fate (see Luke 9:26). Our choices matter.

      Continuing the discussion from another angle, we must examine other incidents in the Bible where a mark was placed on someone. Please consider the story of Cain and Abel. Abel worshiped God according to God’s instruction. Cain, on the other hand, worshiped as he saw fit. God rejected Cain’s worship, and Cain killed his brother in anger (also see Galatians 4:29). GOD PLACED a MARK upon Cain for his rebellion.

      In Ezekiel 8 God calls Ezekiel as a witness for Him as He leads the prophet through an investigation of the behavior of the leaders of Israel. While claiming to be the leaders of God’s people, their behavior (evidence of their allegiance demonstrated by their works) was reprehensible. As the story continues in chapter 9 “a MARK” is PLACED BY AN ANGEL “upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst” of the land (verse 4). Those who are faithful are spared, but the others are slain.

      Revelation 7:3 also tells us that God’s people will receive a mark in their foreheads, which will be placed there by an angel. “And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads” (Revelation 14:1).

      The two different marks mentioned above, the seal of God spoken of in Rev. 7:3, and the mark of the beast are PLACED by HEAVENLY AGENCIES to designate the lost and the saved. Men will not be able to see these marks as they are placed by heaven for the angels to designate the sheep and the goats (Matthew 25:32-33).

      As already stated, the issue is about allegiance and worship. Who or what do you worship? Your lifestyle, your money, your addictions or Christ? Who has your best thoughts? Self or Christ?

      Jesus said: “If you love me KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS” (John 14:15).

      Speaking of God’s people, Revelation 12:17 says: “And the dragon [Satan] was wroth with the woman [God’s true people], and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD and have the testimony of Jesus Christ” (also see Revelation 14:12 and 19:10).

      Revelation 14:6-9 describes three angels who give a warning to mankind, while verses 10 and 11 describe the results of ignoring the warning. Verse 12 describes those who listen: “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, and the faith of Jesus.”

      Speaking of the redeemed, Revelation 22:14 tells us: “Blessed are they THAT DO HIS COMMANDMENTS, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.”

      It is also important to understand that a person can know all that the Bible teaches and still be lost. Consider the foolish virgins found in Matthew 25:1-13. They had the lamp or word of God (see Psalm 119:105). Yet, they were shut out from the wedding because they did not know Christ. They knew about Him because they read the book, but they did not know Him.

      Knowledge alone does not save us. We are saved by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8). But if all we do is believe (“the devils also believe” – James 2:19), our faith is dead (James 2:20) and so are we.

      Salvation comes through allowing the Holy Spirit into the heart and committing our entire being to loving service for Christ. Solomon summed it up this way: “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: FEAR [obey] GOD, and KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14).

      Finally, we are called to follow the example left by Christ. Matthew 4:23 tells us: ” And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.” Are you interested in the welfare and eternal interests of others? How do you treat them? Our actions should reflect our profession. Jesus said, “Ye shall know them by their fruits” (Matthew 7:16).

      Jesus told “HIS DISCIPLES, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me” (Matt. 16:24). May you be so close to the Master that the dust from His steps falls on you.

      A parting question: Which commandment does almost the entire world disobey, many without even understanding what they are doing?

      May God continue to bless us as we seek His face.

    Mr. Hunter:
    The end of America? Or the beginning of a new America(s)?

    IMO, things are far more perilous than Mr. Snyder discusses. For example, where was his acknowledgement of the “missing 21 Trillion” and its implications for government transparency and rule of law, and government of, by, and for the people? Where was his discussion of the deep state and its depredations?

    However, also IMO, many of us are daily learning more and more about the nature of our peril. Therefore, day by day, we are also coming closer to properly dealing with it and getting to the “solution” . . . even though “armageddon” lies in wait between then and now.

    Yes, first we must survive. That is why, as you say, we must “get ready and stay ready.”

    • Greg Hunter

        Why are there such drastic differences in what all of your knowledgeable guests, like Michael Snyder, say when he explains how “We are stealing from future generations more than $100 million every single hour of every single day. This is a crime beyond comprehension…. we are literally committing national suicide and literally destroying the future of this country and the future of this republic.”

        In direct opposition to a very popular conservative website where the author, Sundance in the below link, brags about how President Trump is responsible for de-globalization… and that the U.S. economy is strong, where all the fundamentals are solid.

        Are they just lying to impart feel-good-economic information on their readers, possibly to make Trump look better, or could they be this ignorant to our economic realities?

        Your thoughts or comments by others would be mush appreciated. Thanks. Brooklyn.

        • Greg Hunter


          I think there is a little truth in both of what these folks are saying. I have said this before and that is we (USA) are well past the point of ever paying any of our debt off. To think we will is 1970’s mentality. This decision was made in the 1990’s and nobody cared. Bill Clinton effetely abolished the Glass Steagall Act. by signing the Graham Bliley Leach Act. Glass Steagall separated commercial banking from investment banking. This allowed for the massive banking bailouts we have seen so far. The debt has exploded and for the lase 17 years nobody cared. Trump is moving the economy with a combination of repatriation, reg cutting, tax cutting, Oil and energy production and money printing by the FED. At this point they are going to run it until it blows up and hopefully get everything in place to reorganize America in a bankruptcy without losing the America we love. Hillary would have destroyed the country and even sold off parts of it. Hill and the Dems hate America, the Constitution, and the rights of “We the People.” Look no further than the Dem debates and you see Marxism, communism, National Socialism (NAZI). globalism and satanic New World Order (NWO) godless fools who will stop at nothing to get their way. Hillary was supposed to be in charge when it all came down, but God installed Trump because the God of the Bible has always been the kingmaker. So, Trump is going to be at the head of America and dictate how the bankruptcy will go NOT godless Hillary. It will not favor the rich or the NWO globalists. That is the short long story of how I think this will go down. Also expect a new U.S. currency and the Fed Reserve Note (debt instrument) will revert to zero.

    • paul ...

      William … Snyder did acknowledge the $21 trillion theft in a round about way … by stating the crooks are stealing from future generations … more than $100 million “every single hour” … of “every” passing day … this is a crime beyond the comprehension of ordinary (Demon-rat “commie” voting) millennials … who still don’t know they should be buying gold to protect themselves … their minds are “so lacking in acetylcholine” they can’t retain important facts or thoughts nor comprehend the massive (and continual) thief of trillions of dollars by “commie” Demon-rats working within our Government Agencies … millennials brains “need to be restored” by raising their acetylcholine to optimal levels … chocolate bars contain acetylcholine but they need additional supplementation with Alpha GPC, Huperzine A, Bacopa Monnieri, Lion’s Mane Mushroom, and Ginkgo Biloba!!!

      • paul ...

        You know … everyone should be eating foods every day to raise their acetylcholine levels … as it protects against age-related cognitive decline and strengthens neural connections in the brain … “choline speeds up the creation and release of acetylcholine” (which is a protein that carries signals to brain cells and is important for memory and assorted other brain functions) … the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease have lower levels of acetylcholine than people without the disease … try eating eggs, liver, peanuts, etc. every day which are especially rich sources of choline!!

  5. paul ...

    Michael Snyder says swine fever is killing off the world’s pigs … … this could have devastating consequences for the world economy … but this “Pork Apocalypse” is much greater then we commonly think … because we have greedy “elite pigs” fueling our economic destruction by out right theft of our money ($21 Trillion dollars), taking bribes and payoffs (pork), etc. which we ordinary people have to make up for “by taking a cut in our living standards” … the top 1% of the “elite pigs” think they can solve the world’s food problems by simply killing off 95% of us ordinary people on the planet … but perhaps a Mad Max “fever” will instead kill off 95% of the “elite pigs” (before they do us in) … to prevent this all but inevitable coming holocaust from happening … the Fed (to help the elite pigs) is printing money … printing as much money as it takes to prevent “a sure to come” (as Rick Ackerman believes) Mad Max “greedy pig killing spree” Apocalypse … therefore … everyone better buy some gold (that will rise) along with all the printed fiat dollars the Fed is currently generating … to avoid a Mad Max Apocalypse!!

    • paul ...

      This is how much will the Fed is printing to avoid a Pig Apocalypse …

      • paul ...

        err … this is how much “money” the Fed is printing to avoid a Pig Apocalypse!!

          the bankers are the real problem get rid of them and we can oust all the corrupt politicians that sold us out and down the crazy river without a paddle
          and i got your replies on ackermans interviiew
          i noticed i made a big mistake i put 50 dollars and got 1000 to 1 not 500 but the second one that was close to a 1000 to 1 i put 250 down so they have been very very good to me but BTC and ETH will more than likely not be around in ten years just like facebook amazon and google will not be the leaders in the market ten years from now
          the trick is finding what will take their place and make your killing and trade for gold and silver
          thanks for your replies yesterday paul and i think its a good idea to check out some of these new revolution cryptos that will do away with ETH and BTC dinasaurs and BTC has been hijacked a while back but for some reason people keep buying it lol
          i only have one purely cash crypto (monero) all the rest provide a service or are secutrities for companies that do something that will take away the need for lawyers banks tracking companies and so on and so on
          have a great evening bud and i see stans here where is gina lol
          there is more stans and ginas than there is people like us and that is the problem
          too many are indoctrinated and its impossible to change things when things are like this
          its took a 100 years to get like this so we wont be changing anything very quickly with all the brainwashed that have to be reeducated and im not talking about clinton fun camps here

          • paul ...

            Nick … if we study “the patterns of how the banksters operate” we can use it to our advantage (to beat them at their own game) … for instance … look at the following chart … … notice how interest rates (black line) “spikes up” right before a recession … and notice how “money supply spikes” (blue line) as we enter (and rises all the way through) a recession … well the Fed’s recent interest rate spike “is now over” … and it looks like the Fed’s recent Repo actions “is the start of” their money printing operation (the Fed always ratchets up the printing presses right through recessions) … so the Fed’s recent money printing Repo operation is indicating “we are now entering a recession” (although the Fed banksters think they can throw us off by saying Repo “is not QE”) … but as people begin to realize the economy “is” entering a recession … they will begin to sell their stocks and markets will fall … and gold is where people (other then Stan) will go “for protection” as the S&P 500 crashes …

          • K.Wayne

            The Bankers are only part of the problem.
            The biggest issue is the Fiat Currency that is unbacked by Gold currently accepted around the Globe as the commodity for exchange and settlement.
            You remove Fiat from the hands of Bankers and all other issues are resolved instantly.
            But that comes with side-effects. The Socialism and Welfare States disappear. Those on Welfare and Govt. Pensions will suffer greatly. But society becomes functionally whole again, with corruption sent to the dustbin of eternity.

    The best thing that the “little guy” can do: to repeat what you started the interview with on debt … the lesson: get out of personal debt as much as possible. Don’t buy what you truly cannot afford, and don’t wait hoping for debt forgiveness or a bailout in the next crash. If you lost your job, could you survive for one month, two months, three months? These are reasonable things for anyone to consider. AND KNOW YOUR NEIGHBORS. Know who can help you in the next crash, versus who cannot, will not, or may even harm you.

  8. Revd Andrew de Berry

    Snyder is not for me. As a Christian he is way too negative, while his book The beginning of the End I found to be a shockingly incoherent read.

  9. paul ...

    Finally … As I have been saying … to protect America’s children here at home from being harmed by the Mexican Drug Cartels … and to protect Americans abroad … President Trump should invade Mexico “militarily” … once we take control of Mexico militarily and completely destroy the drug cartels … we can ask the Mexican people to vote on joining the Union as a “new” State (just like Russia did with Crimea) … this would provide the US with plenty of Mexican silver mines able to produce “real silver money coins” for us to put into circulation to back up the failing dollar the way JFK was doing (before the Deep State got rid of him) … in any case … it seems Trump is almost ready to designate the Mexican Drug Cartels “as terrorist groups” … and as soon as the Wall is built sufficiently (to prevent any Drug Cartel counter-attacks onto American soil) … Trump will likely order the US military to invade Mexico (and destroy the drug cartels “right on Mexican soil”)!! …

    • paul ...

      Operation CONDOR can be used to secure “all the land” from the southern US right up to the Panama Canal … at least under Trump “our continuous wars” will be fought by American boys “to help the American people” … rather then our sons and daughters helping the Saudi’s fight wars in Yemen, Iran or some other foreign nation and die for them!! …

      • paul ...

        You know … right now in America we have “commies” educating our children and lowering the average passing grade to 45 (years ago the average passing grade was 75) … the “commies” have turned us into a Nation of dumbed down drugged up idiots that can’t think themselves out of a paper bag (and thus idiotically vote for even more “commie” Demon-rats to control them) … within the last 30 days … 24 million Americans have taken an illegal drug (and it is getting worse with each passing year) … the Pentagon says 71 percent of our young adults “are ineligible to serve in the US military” because they are either “too dumb, too fat or have a criminal background” … so guess who the Military sends off “to be used as cannon fodder” in their unending continuous wars? … the few kids “with at least half a brain” … as time goes on … who is going to be around to run things in America and to keep us “The Greatest Nation on Earth” (people that are even dumber then Pelosi and Schumer)?? … right now the average “college freshman in the United States” reads at a 7th grade level … and our “Institutions of Higher Learning” are charging $50,000 per year to teach kids (who can barely read Dick and Jane Comic books)??? … Stan and Gina “are geniuses” compared to the current crop of chocolate eating millennials graduating from our “commie” schools … this is why Trump has to invade Mexico and destroy the Drug Cartels and then revamp and completely overhaul our education system … otherwise … our children can never be expected to out compete Chinese kids … who are probably being taught calculus in 4th grade!!! …

      Building a Wall or invading Mexico will not stop the drug trafficking…period !!

    Over several interviews it’s been mentioned that the central banks are buying record amounts of gold. Were is all this gold coming from? Who’s selling literally tons of gold?

    • nick

      darren more than likely the americans and i highly doubt america has any gold left in fort knox
      its all been leased to china russia and they will never get it back unfortunately

      • K.Wayne

        Circa 2500 Tonnes of Gold is produced annually. Not all of it goes to China. Given China produces 400 Tonnes annually that implies 2100 Tonnes are delivered from Australia, US, Russia, Canada , Indonesia, Peru, Sth. Africa.
        On top of the produced Gold you have Gold melt – sourced from jewellery and scrap. Also Gold in pure Bar/Coin form being sold by Wealthy Investors for cash.

    • JC

      Maybe Rob Kirby would know who is selling tons of gold.

    Here we go again. We are told that we are in grave danger, yet what specific actions are recommended to save our loved ones? Millions will suffer for lack of one word, ‘therefore’…

  12. A. E Jones. JR

    I totally agree. We will see the end of the systems in force today from the Federal Government on down. Count it as a blessing. It is already happening in stages. I live in southside Virginia. Our state just flipped the state government (Blumberg money) to all Democrat and their main issue is gun control. My county government along with I believe about 25 other county governments have passed legislation making us a gun law sanctuary. The Sheriffs have stated they will not enforce any state gun laws. Once the Federal government loses control ceasing to be the great enforcer it will be a whole new ball game. Southwest and southside Virginia will be a separate state or independent political entities as will the metro cities. The roots of the American Civil War go back to around 1830, when Andrew Jackson was president and he and John C. Calhoun butted heads. Calhoun advocated what was called “Nullification”. That meant the states could nullify in their jurisdiction any law the Federal Government passed that was not in the interest of the South. President Jackson threatened to invade the south if the states passed the “Nullification Act.” That event was the beginning of our Civil War!! What did the Nullification Act say? It said that the South was a legal sanctuary against laws it did not believe in her interest. The other issue of contention of the time was a National Bank. This whole situation is a remake of an old saga. The issue then was that what was good for the North (tariffs) was bad for the South because the foreign countries just put tariffs on Southern exports to compensate for the tariffs put on to protect the industries of the north meaning the South was paying indirectly to protect the industrial development of the North. The National Bank was the seat of corruption. They could make you or break you. You cannot have a nation with the two factions composing the nation at odds with each other. “A nation divided against itself cannot stand.”

      i for one cant wait for everything to collapse so we can start over again and so it could slowly and eventually get better for all

      • Warren B.

        Seriously NICK !!!!
        Wishing for a collapse is not something you should be embracing let alone looking forward to. You should seek medical attention.

        • nick

          warren i did not create this collapse and the sooner the better so we can get back to normal again and if you want this to continue then sir you are way more sicker than i am and medical help will not help you
          ‘the longer the collapse takes the more suffering there will be
          so what you are saying you want more suffering than less for the american people
          you poor mutton
          you obviously do NOT have a clue since you want this to last longer
          it should have collapsed long ago but since it hasnt people will suffer way more and it seems like you want more suffering for everyone
          you sir should be ashamed of yourself
          i want less suffering for everyone not more such as yourself

          • Warren B.

            Your line of thinking is vastly impaired.
            Collapse is not something I would wish for given the interconnectedness of the Global Financial and Monetary System.
            You seem quite oblivious to the ramifications of a collapsing civilization with “getting back to normal sooner”.
            An implosion of such would surely put the survivors through another “Dark Ages” period lasting 400 years perhaps. This was the result of a collapse of the Roman Empire (alone). The effects of which were felt throughout greater Europe.
            America doesn’t live in isolation as you seem to suggest. I would inform you that NO collapse of America would be complete without a consummation from other global economies.Making the collapse a worldwide catastrophe. That my friend is reality and what you are so fixated on by maddeningly wishing for the day to arrive as soon as possible.

            I don’t wish for suffering at all. Far from it in fact.

            We have a great President and wonderful country. I am extremely positive about our future. Talk of collapse is unnecessary and unwarranted on so many levels.

            My suggestion to you sir would be to live life as best you can while you can.

      And can you image the the strain it would put on the infrastructure of a state of just a little more than 1 million people if even 500,000 people tried to relocate to Montana following a catastrophe as large as the one being described.
      A this time most of us can not run the risk or even afford to leave the big cities like the one I live in but when it happens there will be nothing to lose in our attempt to escape them so be careful Mister Montana Guy the locals may have to knock a little country sense into you for putting hair brain ideas into our minds.

    Great interview! I align myself with everything Snyder said.

  16. Jerry

    According to this article the Fed is increasing the size of the repos daily, and plans to do so until the end of the year.

    I have no idea what this indicates? Maybe you do? But one must conclude that it’s either one of two things. Either the repos are beginning to loose their effectiveness to keep the banks liquid? Or, it’s part of a broader, preplanned strategy to rebuild the lines of cross lending? Who knows? But I do know this. It’s never been done before.

    • K.Wayne

      There are issues in the CLO market (Corporate Debt on Steroids) which have not surfaced in the general public’s eye … YET !! Snyder alluded to the $10TLN Corporate Debt being 1 level above Junk. That is exactly what the Banksters have bundled up in their new CLO’s …that they have on sold.
      What could possibly go wrong there ? Well….as I said….the CLO’s are the new CDO’s ….where are Mark Baum and Michael Burry while all this is going on ??
      Follow the smart guys…they know what’s happening.

    Good job Greg

    “can the fed bail us out again”………hummm that depends on the definition of “us” …….ya ment bail the bankers & big business & state governments & pension plans …….the GDP not so much rightttttttttt. Time to bail out the TAXPAYERS they will SPEND it & let that trickle down to the banks instead of bailing out the banks & screwing over the TAXPAYER.

  20. Arrowflinger


    I agree that the bailout of Long Term Capital Management was a break point which started the flood of derivatives debt which has guaranteed the collapse. We saw two Nobel laureates in Economics and a star bond trader shown to be utter fools, yet the Political Economy of Lootery turned all of us into the greater fools who bailed them out. The insane derivatives leverage turned a $1 billion in equity into $125 billion in debt and an astounding $1.25 TRILLION in derivative obligations, enough to cause a collapse 22 years ago.

    Now the derivatives stand in the quadrillion of dollars. The banksters have even gotten enough derivatives quaranteed by the FDIC ahead of depositors to swamp any possibility of the already insolvent FDIC fund being there for us.

    What has been done to prudent people is beyond criminal.

    • paul jr.

      You are wrong. The FDIC does not guarantee derivatives. They only guarantee deposits. And insured deposits get paid before any before any derivatives. Also the FDIC is not insolvent. You obviously do not know much about this subject do you?

      • Arrowflinger

        Why Is the FDIC Insuring Jamie Dimon’s Mistakes? | The Nation

      • Arrowflinger

        In 2017 the FDIC fund stood at $92.7 billion to cover $7.1 TRILLION of insured deposits, or about 1.2%.
        I leave it to other, rational readers to decide their comfort level with this degree of coverage or lack thereof.
        I don’t think the coverage ratio is much different now.

        FDIC has a $100 billion line of credit from the Treasury department, to be fair but the coverage using it would still be less than 3%.

        FDIC: Quarterly Banking Profile

        • paul jr.

          Several things you said need correcting, again. You said that derivatives are guaranteed by FDIC and that they get paid first ahead of depositors so that the deposit insurance fund will be depleted before any insured depositor gets their money. As proof you give a link to an article that wrongly implies that the FDIC insurance fund actually covers derivatives when it does not. Instead you should look up what the FDIC insurance fund actually covers which are only deposits. So just because some investment or product is in an FDIC-insured bank does not mean that it is covered by the FDIC insurance fund.

          You also said that the FDIC is insolvent but then you admit that they really are not because you state that they have about $92.7 billion in the insurance fund (currently $108.9 billion dollars as of September 30, 2019). So like I said, the FDIC is not insolvent.

          You bring up the fact that there is relatively very little in the deposit insurance fund to cover the $7.1 billion in insured deposits (currently $7.7 billion). That is true but FDIC really do not need much either. In case you did not know, in the vast majority of times when a bank fails very little of the insurance fund is even used. Sometimes none of it. So they do not require much money unless many banks fail. And if many banks do fail and the FDIC insurance fund is depleted, they do have that $100 billion credit line with the Treasury which can easily be expanded to $500 billion like they did back in the last financial crisis. And even back then with over 450 banks failing from 2008-2012 the FDIC did not even touch their line of credit. And if that still is not enough the FDIC also has the authority to raise money by other means, especially if a big bank fails. So the FDIC can easily get as much money as it needs to pay off any insured depositors.

          • K.Wayne

            Interesting snippet on Morgan Stanley (re FDIC).
            ……”Making the situation at Morgan Stanley even more dicey, it owns two Federally-insured deposit taking banks that the U.S. taxpayer is on the hook for. According to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), Morgan Stanley Bank, National Association holds $116 billion in deposits while Morgan Stanley Private Bank, N.A. holds another $70 billion in deposits.
            If you’re thinking this is the banking structure from hell, you would be spot on”.

            We shouldn’t overlook the function of the FDIC either.
            It is useful to remember that under BAIL IN Law, depositors funds are used first to avoid Bankruptcy of a Financial Institution. The Act of Bankruptcy then invokes the Deposit Insurance. There needs to be some clarity around the function of FDIC Insurance as it is easily misunderstood.

            • paul jr.


              Just to correct some things that you said. Under Bail-in laws, only UNINSURED deposits may be used if needed. It is the bondholders and shareholders that take the first hit.

              And it is not the act of bankruptcy that invokes the FDIC deposit insurance but rather when a bank becomes insolvent. It is then that the FDIC takes over the failed bank and pays out any money to insured depositors, if needed. Normally bankruptcy would come sometime after a bank has become insolvent.

              And just to clarify something. Bail-ins are not used to avoid bankruptcy. It is really the Orderly Liquidation Authority (“OLA”), which is a regulatory alternative to bankruptcy that was established in the Dodd-Frank Act, that would be used to avoid “bankruptcy”. It is under the OLA that the FDIC would use bail-ins as part of the resolution process of a failed major bank that has been deemed a systemically important financial institution (SIFI).

  21. Jeannette Rowden

    Thanks, Greg, for having Michael Snyder on. He is very knowledgeable and I learned a lot I didn’t know from this interview. I appreciate all you do to keep us informed.

  22. Marion Sampson

    With all of the criminal activity in high places; people with money to throw away, instead of sending them to jail, which is probably more like hotel arrest, why not make them pay back the money from their foundations – money that was stolen, or gained illegally and on the backs of children, natural disasters, sex trafficking, pedophile rings, drug trafficking, etc. That money could pay off the US debt. I hope and pray that making real criminals pay will be on Trump’s agenda when he is re-elected, and alternative truth-telling media will bring that to its listeners. Then we can hope again.
    I also wish we wouldn’t receive so much cheap junk from China that eventually overflows our landfills.

    The debt won’t be paid by future generations. It will either be defaulted or it will be repaid in dollars that are worthless due to hyperinflation or it will be paid by bank customers as part of bail ins.

      more than likely all of the above bill

  26. Leo

    All right Greg thx for Snyder interview. His books are a great and sober read. Like he said very few have any clue what is coming and we who do see will scarcely believe. Sooner or later those who don’t believe and are not prepared will be at your door and you will only survive by being with like minded armed people in small groups off grid. People will lose their minds and souls. when I do go out and see all the families at the store shopping, driving around in the suv or new pickup some hauling campers i wonder, can this really happen as in the days of Noah? “everybody gotta die sometime” Tom Berenger (platoon). I am not ready for this and i don’t want it . Nevermind the gold the lead the food, Jesus save my soul.

  27. D.O.Brack

    Like Celente, Mannarino and the rest, Mr Snyder is brilliant at stating the problem and the horrors in store for us but has absolutely no advice on how to change things other than the vague “we need to get off this path”. He says we should never have traded with the evil Chinese but bashes Trump because he has not signed a trade policy with China, and now we have no hope. (Trump can’t force the Chinese not to steal our intellectual policy.) So, “What would YOU DO differently Mr Snyder?” and “what would you do if your actions, Mr Snyder, triggered a stampede and horrific civil unrest?” It’s easy for your guests to state the problem, Greg, but solutions are disappointingly vague.

    • nick

      we cannot get off this path it is too late sir and if trump cant fix this dont expect snyder and celente and mannarino to if the president cant
      and trump deserves to be given shot since tarrifs empower the chinese and USS of A govt while the people of both countries suffer
      as far as im concerned trump is not much better than the clintons (no wonder since he is related to them) and bushes
      in saying that i do like that trump is on there instead of clinton but in the long run it will not make one bit of a difference cause there is no changing paths now
      we have to go through this we are in the eye of the storm believe it or not and when we get out of the eye its going to get bad really really fast

      D.O.Brack, many survival-minded folks mock Mr. Snyder. I don’t. He excels at what he does. He is like the Alex Jones of doom and gloom. But he gets folks stirred up, thinking and asking critical questions. If they are determined to seek answers, Mr. Snyder may prove to be their Paul Revere or William Dawes.

      For answers folks need to seek subject matter experts. Take ‘survival’ for example. Seek SMEs such as James Wesley Rawles, Tess Pennington, and Brandon Smith

      The solution is take your money out of the blanking system and buy real assets.

Then possibly we could return to a constitutional republic (as long as we are dreaming).

  29. Rodster

    I disagree with Synder on one point. This meltdown will not be a US event only. He’s taken the line from Gerald Celente who has been saying, we are entering the Greatest Depression possibly as soon as 2021.

    Gerald Celente has also pointed to all the civil unrest hotspots around the world and they are multiplying and growing. I’m one of the few who doesn’t believe we will ever see another Gold Standard or that China will become the top dog again, decades from now. Those guys are the originators of the Fiat system and they certainly know a thing or two on how to cheat the system.

    But what we are witnessing today and this is also a belief of Gerald Celente is a reverse of globalization. Countries are beginning to look inward.

    • nick

      you are right this will be worldwide since we are all connected

    • K.Wayne

      I don’t entirely agree with your comment although I will agree on “This meltdown will not be a US event only”.
      Those countries who have aligned themselves under BRIC and are working towards a Gold Backed Currency/ Gold Trading settlement system/platform are the ones who will prosper.
      The inward looking, Fiat currency dependant Nation States of the West are headed for the Great Inflation / Hyper-Inflation scenarios. That ends with the complete destruction of the Fiat monetary system. Ultimately the West reverts to the system adopted by the East.

  30. Paul Anthony

    Snyder – Obviously, A smart man that I respect and agree with 99 percent of his thoughts in this interview.

    His responses saying that we had a chance to do the right thing with Trump winning 2016 but he’s still doing the same things economically that Obama did.

    Ok I agree … But … as we are discovering, there was a “resistance strategy ” even before he took office, He was surrounded with deep state immediately and more than likely given horrible advice especially in his first year.

    While I agree they are doing the same game and nothing has changed there I regarding Printing massive amounts of money and deeper debt – I do believe in the end he wants to do the right thing buy can’t do it now especially before the election. He however does have accomplishments – massive arrests have happened and not been covered in the child sex traffic evil arena – The deep state is being exposed, the tax cuts the deep state did not want. Crimes being exposed, by MSM, democrat politicians and Rhinos. Its all out and obvious with the exception of the people who just don’t want to believe truth.

    There is no person as president that would have accomplished what Trump has so far. I wouldn’t necessarily count on the same ole, same ole, continuing because the corruption is breaking and failing. I would accredit The Lord for Trump being the leader in place when it happens. Cant imagine what our lives would be like if he wasn’t President when the collapse happens. I believe that where it is heading. he will be The president under a global re-set.

    Of course he was forced to continue Money Printing and not been able to do the right thing.

    Perhaps I am wrong and he will never do the right thing. That will be tragic if that happens. But I’ll be prepared.

    Just my 2 cents – if its even worth that.

    Good interview ! Thank you Greg and Mark

    • Steve Bice

      Hi Paul: I believe the opportunity to “do the right thing” is well in the rear-view mirror. Every administration embraces Keynesian theory with regard to government stimulus, but none is ever willing to withdraw the stimulus as the economy recovers. Keynesian theory was supposed to be about smoothing, not stimulus in perpetuity. Today, we have the latter.

      Federal spending is now approaching 36% of GDP. In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, total debt approached and surged past 100% of GDP. The last time this occurred was in 1945-1947.

      With the war over, and the manufacturing capacity of Europe completely decimated, the U.S. engaged in a manufacturing and growth juggernaut to grow its way out of the economic malaise.

      The conditions now are very different. U.S. manufacturing has been decimated (via tax and trade policy), foreign military entanglements continue unabated, and federal spending is accelerating…with ever-more calls for new multi-billion dollar programs. We are on course to destroy our economy and the dollar…while Congress, the administration and the media are whistling past the economic graveyard.

      We are now trapped.

      Cutting federal spending even by 10 percent would push the economy into a severe decades-long depression. That means a full generation would live their productive years under 1930’s-like economic conditions.

      No administration (or party) will risk becoming a generational pariah. The Rubicon is well in the rear-view mirror.

      If there is indeed no way out, there is a certain logic in using a weakening dollar (paper) to acquire trillions of dollars of shiny new infrastructure to enter economic hard times with “real” and necessary assets: bridges, roads, rail and utilities (water, gas and electric).

      But that is not what we are doing. The vast majority of current federal spending will evaporate when the dollar collapses, leaving nothing behind but misery born of dependence.

      We have allowed the political class free reign, and followed the partisan Pied Pipers to our increasing detriment… and we have been betrayed.

      Governmental profligacy is a disease…an economic pandemic which has now spread across the world. We are in trouble.

      There is no easy way out. Civilizations rise and fall on economic and monetary policy. The 400-year-plus Roman Empire fell largely due to economic and military over-reach. Sound familiar?

      The lessons of economic malfeasance cry out across out the centuries, but each generation must sadly learn anew the destructive power of profligacy writ large.

      The lesson is before us.

      Buckle up.

  31. Mike

    What does the endgame look like?

    • Paul Anthony

      Hi Steve:

      I basically Agree with you. I was trying to say that POTUS doesn’t really have a choice but to do the same ol same ol regarding low interest and printing money. But at some point there is a re-set of the system and Id rather have him in charge of debt dealings when it happens than anyone else. Your point is well taken.

    Mr. Hunter, you know how to ask the right questions to get closer to truth, which some say will set you free, but others indicate it will merely make you mad. I’ve been both for some time. Thank you sir!

  33. Rob

    There will be no future generations in any country as our Father is purposely bringing everything everything to a climactic time of tribulation such as mass food shortages globally so it is ready for Jesus’ 3rd seal:

    Revelation 6:5-6 And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, Come. And I saw, and behold, a black horse; and he that sat thereon had a balance in his hand. (6) And I heard as it were a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, A measure of wheat for a shilling, and three measures of barley for a shilling; and the oil and the wine hurt thou not.

    This is all part of the plan to drive small personally owned farms out of business so big corporations in bed with large corporate farms fully subsidized by the government will produce all our food so they have better control over who is allowed to buy and sell food:

    It’s all part of the end game that will be fulfilled within the next decade:

    The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
    But fools despise wisdom and instruction.

    Mr. Doom. He tells the truth across a range of subjects. Not just economics.

    Mad Max terror. The fury, fierceness, and wrath of the Almighty God against His enemies. Natural disasters, famine, pestilence, war. Persecution of Christians. Your life will be required. Just like Stephen. Full of faith and the Holy Spirit. Are you ready?

    Proverbs 1:25-33

    Because you disdained all my counsel,
    And would have none of my rebuke,
    I also will laugh at your calamity;
    I will mock when your terror comes,
    When your terror comes like a storm,
    And your destruction comes like a whirlwind,
    When distress and anguish come upon you.
    “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer;
    They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.
    Because they hated knowledge
    And did not choose the fear of the Lord,
    They would have none of my counsel
    And despised my every rebuke.
    Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way,
    And be filled to the full with their own fancies.
    For the turning away of the simple will slay them,
    And the complacency of fools will destroy them;
    But whoever listens to me will dwell safely,
    And will be secure, without fear of evil.”

    The fury of the Almighty God upon His enemies. Imagine that.

    He stands at the door. Jesus Christ of Nazareth. King of kings. Lord of lords. Lion of the tribe of Judah. El Shaddai. Messiah. Anointed One. Emmanuel. Prince of Peace. Seek Him while He may be found.

    Ephesians 5:14
    Therefore He says “Awake you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.”

    Armagedon is now! Our preperation needs to be now. Accept ttheir is no hope according
    to Michael Synder. Not a pleasant thought.

  36. Mike R

    What I dont understand is why more people aren’t paying attention to Michael Snyder, and how he has written so many stories that talk about how doomed we are, yet things still keep going along, and the markets keep bubbilizing higher, and more debt keeps piling on. Everyone from private individuals, to corporates, to state and city governments, and the federal government keeps piling on more debt. More IOU’s. How is this being allowed ? How are the criminal lenders allowed to keep doing this ? I think the entire principal of bankruptcy should be abolished, and that absolutely no one should be allowed to get out of paying their debt, and that simply they should be put in prison, along with the lender who lent the money to that person or company who attempted to default. There should be a limit and ratio on how much debt can be taken on by any person or entity. Credit monitoring agencies are worthless, the SEC is worthless, and too many people are being allowed to get away with absolute theft.

    Its sad that so many people mock Snyder publicly on places like Zero Hedge, and everyone dismisses him.

    The end of America.
    A complete synopsis in 4 words.

    • Greg Hunter

      I’ll take the other side of that bet. America will not end with the right person in charge of the bankruptcy of USA!!

      • nick

        although i think trump is not the right person in charge for the bankruptcy i see he will have to possibly deal with but better him than clinton or obama and i am not a republican or a democrat
        i am alibetarian/anarchist
        govt is never ever the solution but the main problem after the central banks
        great stuff greg
        although i think trump is working with the deep state i do believe he is better for the coming reset than any of the others

  39. Dave

    The guest was honest about Trump. Despite the promise of his election nothing has changed. It’s actually gotten worst. The largest deficits ever signed by Trump and illegal immigration many times higher than under Obama. And, less deportations by Trump’s admin than by Obama’s. Think about it.

    The whole Russian/Ukraine situation is a scam to divide Americans and keep them at each other’s throats. Allowing the Deep State to increase its control. Don’t forget that Trump supported FASV. As did both parties. That strikes at the heart o representative government. Just as liberals refused to accept the Mueller Report, conservatives are set to refuse to accept the Horowitz Report. Solidify that deep divide in the populace is the goal keep them believing lies and seeing each other as enemies.

    USAWatchdog is a rare media source. Not part of controlled conservative media (Rush, Hannity and Levin). It turns out the IG report is apparently not going to fin any effort by the Deep State to unseat Trump or prevent him from winning. Comey is vindicated as has been McCabe who is not going to be prosecuted. Hannity is a Deep Stator IMO. His absolutely close Bush ties are a red flag. His insistence to this day there were WMDs. Hannity lied to his listeners for two years now. There will be prosecutions, the FBI will see massive resignations in protest of the Deep State. Now? With Hannity about to be proved wrong he is backing off of his incessant claims of conspiracy that he and a handful of selected guests sold to his audiences. But wait, someone has put out a rumor Barr does not agree with the IG. You can bet that is coming from a controlled conservative media source. . So they can string their listeners along another year until the Durham report comes out. It’s all part of controlled conservative medias assignment – to keep patriots and conservatives from bolting the GOP. To make sure no effective conservative movement emerges in this country. And the deficit? It does not matter don’t you know – none other than Rush has so recently informed his listeners.

    • Greg Hunter

      No Dave it has not gotten worse it got better and that is a fact. Trump has had record judi9cial appointments to federal courts, He is building a wall and Trump got us out of fraud deals such as the Paris Climate Accord, TPP and the Iran (no signature) nuke deal to name a few. Trump is going to crash the economy when he steps into office when he is stuck with $41 trillion in unpayable debt? You are kidding right??? Really??? You cannot believe we are ever going to pay a dime of this back. If you do you believe we are paying all this fraud debt back then you also must in unicorns and Santa Claus. Trump is printing all he can because we are NEVER INTENDING TO PAY A DIME OF THI BACK. I would do the same thing. What the heck is the difference of defaulting of $40 trillion or $48 trillion or whatever??? It is heading to default and this has been the case since LTCM case in 1998. Let’s get teal hear and apply the metrics that make sense instead of metrics of the 1970’s. The USA id getting prepared for a bankruptcy. It is really that simple. I support what Trump is doing because a total bankruptcy is the only way to save the republic.


      • Hockey Puck

        Thank for taking a stand on this issue Greg. I understand Dave’s despondency. A lot of people are dismayed by the lack of results. It’s human. We’ve all been there. But don’t forget. It took General Washington 8 years to win the Revolutionary War, and during that time, he had lost more battles than he had won. What so many so-called conservatives lack is a sense of perspective. War is brutal. And Trump is at war. Wars are not won in 1 day.

        I would also like to take issue with Snyder’s snotty remark at 4:28 about Trump doing the same thing that Obama did but worse. WRONG! Dead wrong! In fact very ignorant and self-contradictory. What so few people seem to understand is that DEBT IS MONEY. So if you reduce the debt, you reduce the amount of money in circulation and that would implode the economy… immediately!!! No president could ever survive that kind of catastrophe, and no president would be able to get anything done after that. His presidency would be completely lost. So whether we like it or not, no president can pull the plug like that and anyone who suggests such a thing is an idiot.

        What Trump is trying to do is recreate the growth economy that America had for most of its history, and that way grow its way out of the debt. How come Snyder didn’t talk about that? I guess he just doesn’t know anything.

        More important, Trump INHERITED this extremely indebted economy from 5 prior administrations. That’s right! 36 years of bad money management, largely because of Congress. He also inherited an extremely dysfunctional economy that only grew @ 1.9% per annum since 2008. These are BIG, BIG, BIG problems and cannot be corrected in 5 minutes. They take years and Trump is doing an extraordinary job to reverse that.

        Also what Snyder said about Hong Kong and the Trade War with China is so misinformed I am dumbfounded by his ignorance. It suggests he is either 1) a troll or 2) a big mouth with no brains. Pathetic! What so few Americans understand is that China is 1) a totalitarian state worst than the Third Reich who 2) created a mercantile economy to wage an economic war against the USA for over 20 years now, a far more sophisticated war than America has ever had to face in its history, far more sophisticated than any military encounter… EVER! That’s what Trump is focused on and that’s what he should be focused on. It’s the #1 issue of the day!

        If Trump succeeds at winning the Economic War with China and brings back US manufacturing, which is what he said he would do, US GDP growth could go up to 4% or even 5% per year for a whole decade, especially given the pent-up demand. Who wants to see that? You got it… the “Deplorables”. Who’s against it? The Elite, the Party of Davos, the CCP. Trump has very big enemies. Are you one of them, Snyder? Serious! If not, get informed.

    MS said a great deal without using the taboo phrase “over-population” that is the source of all problems on the planet. Keep in mind the 1929 crash that occurred in the face of a “GOD fearing” American population with Christian values and far less immorality than prevalent today.

    MS is suggesting a possible outcome for the stock market and banking.

    Another outcome is described by Clif High in this video starting at the 31 minute mark.

  42. Doug

    Its all by design Gregg. The NWO through the banks and multinational Companies are destroying the Western Middle Class by bankrupting us all (with cheap credit and enormous Inflation).
    I wish you would have Cathy O’Brien on your show sometime. She has written a first person account of her life in the 60′, 70′ and 80’s as a MK-Ultra project Monarch Sex Slave. She mentions BIG names in power at the time, including many Presidents, Prime Ministers etc.. The real tell is the fact that NO ONE has sued her. That tell you something. They don’t want to have the truth of the Pedophilia and Human trafficking out in the open.
    Her book is called “Trance…..formation of America” and talks about the mind control and propaganda being administered to us every day. It talks all about the NWO openly reported about with Bush Sr. blabbing about it all the time. Remember Chaney shooting the guy in the face? Apparently that is one of his favorite things to play….”A most dangerous game”, where they actually track people and shoot them. These people are psychopaths. Not sure how to deal with them but eventually they will have to be dealt with. Great show again Gregg.

    • Greg Hunter

      Thanks Doug!

    • Jerry

      This is the way you drain the swamp.

      You bulldoze it under. When Trump says make America great again, he means from the ground up. He is a builder for lands sake. You can’t fix a broken economic system, anymore than you can fix a house eaten up with termites, and he knows it. The globalist and the dems will be crushed under the collapse and be used as scapegoats when the time is right.

      FYI some insiders are saying the repos are being used to prop up Deutsche bank until the hammer drops.

      • Jerry

        The closer we get to a global currency reset, the more tensions between nations will rise.

        Some sources are reporting that there are Russian subs parked off the shores of the United States. While I have no way to confirm this, it does make sense. The Russians have become uneasy as to who will win the power struggle in Washington, and what the outcome might be should the United States undergo a civil war or economic collapse. We are at a tipping point. Should the deep state fail in its impeachment attempt, who knows what the next step will be, and what happens on Monday when the FISA report comes out?

  43. Mike

    the highly corrupt unions in our dark state of IL, have full control of all the government, and to try to cover the pension shortfalls, an impossibility at $130 billion and growing, they are now corruptly re-assessing home values year after year, when prices are falling. SO not only are there annual percentage increases in the property tax, there is also the multplier of re-assessment. They have completely rigged process whereby they send out notices with a 30 day window to appeal, and do so right during the holidays between thanksgiving and christmas. They figure maybe 1 in 500,000 might try to appeal. The unions have held the entire state hostage, and now with rising taxes on gasoline, sales taxes, property taxes, rising assessments, hundreds of other city and local taxes, and new taxes on every item or business process you can think of, every citizen in Illinois is getting hosed to the max ! People can’t leave the state fast enough, and meanwhile home sales prices are plummeting, while assessed valuations are many 10’s of thousands above the sales prices. Illinois is the definition of pure criminal in terms of state government and the unions colluding. Morally bankrupt on the way to financially bankrupt. The IL bonds trade at junk level. Union pensioners get paid twice what they made as salaries when they retire. Teachers retire at 55. This is where Obama cut his teeth. This is what Obama brought into DC, to corrupt the entire federal government, fully beyond anything ever seen. DC people are rookies in terms of endemic corruption compared to Illinois. 4 out of our last 7 governors ended up in prison. Those were the sacrificial lambs who didn’t ‘cooperate.’ Capiche ?

    i really like mr snyder but i think stocks will fall 90 percent against gold in the next crash and at least 50 percent or more against the corrupt fiat murdering greenback
    i think you will be able to buy a house with a few ounces of gold when this is all said and done

    • Warren B.

      Why would you relate Stock market movements in Gold terms. Gold is not a currency. It is a relic that doesn’t earn a dime in interest.
      Tell me what the process is when you need to convert your supposed Gold holdings to currency, when you wish to purchase that house?
      How do Stocks lose against the Greenback. If you actually understood what the price is for the DOW or S & P or NASDAQ, then you would know that the Dollar is the currency upon which the Stock market is valued. If you are inferring that the Stock Market will lose value because of Inflation (debasement of the Dollar) then you are overlooking the effect of the Dollar Inflation in terms of Asset prices.

    The above link highlights text that was released today as having passed between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page:

    Lisa Page Text to Peter Strzok: ‘You get all our oconus lures approved?

    Meanwhile the Washington Post (link below) claims Bill Durham has found no connection between the Trump Russian Collusion Hoax / Spying and any US intelligence agency.

    ” And Durham informed Horowitz’s office that his investigation had not produced any evidence that might contradict the inspector general’s findings on that point. ”

    Evidently setting OCONUS Lures approved by some senior administration official at least overseeing the FBI and maybe POTUS himself (Obama) based on earlier Texts saying POTUS wants to know everything….somehow doesn’t qualify as a connection to an intelligence agency. I had to look it up, but OCONUS is “Off Continental US” or foreign assets (agents) used as lures.

    I’m hoping I’m misunderstanding this. If not, than maybe the Epstein farce was a dry run to see how gullible we are at accepting obviously contrived false info from the Justice Department.

  48. Peter Morris

    I have heard for sometime That Trump is planning on dumping the FED and their debt and starting a Gold baked Dollar, and that he has gotten America’s gold back to America and that he will dump the FED
    and return to the us treasury = But in order to do that he has to let a serious disaster happen so Americans will operate from the US treasury. I pray that he can do this as the FED is our biggest problem. Peter Morris

    Fewer Americans are donating to charity — and it may have nothing to do with money

    One factor is that people don’t have the means to give that they have had in the past. Many families are just trying to make ends meet. There’s also this from the article:

    Americans are losing their religion
    “One factor driving the decline: Americans are becoming less likely to attend religious services or identify with a specific religion …”
    “But there are fewer very religious people than ever in the U.S. The share of the population who describe themselves as atheists, agnostics or “nothing in particular” is now at 26%, up from 17% in 2009, according to 2018 and 2019 surveys by the Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan “fact tank” in Washington, D.C.”

    America Braces for Possible French Fry Shortage After POOR POTATO HARVEST

    Forget the “French fries shortage.” Have you tried to buy potatoes since Thanksgiving? Many places are out of potatoes. People shrug it off thinking, “They will have more in a few days,” and they might. But what will happen when the last bag is gone? Then, panic will ensue. Now is the time to prepare.

    Noah did all he could to prepare for the crisis in his day. Hebrews 11:7 tells us:
    “By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.”

    When the Assyrian king, Sennacherib, surrounded Jerusalem and threatened to destroy it, King Hezekiah did all he could to prepare and then prayed for the Lord’s protection and intervention. In the end, Sennacherib was utterly defeated.

    Now is our time of preparation. God has given us this window of opportunity to prepare for the coming storm which is clearly just before us. Are you preparing an ark for you and your family?

    The “Oracle”, by Jonathan Cahn- a Sneak Preview:
    REF: Chapter 58, “The Dark Oracle”

    “… it’s not just the Jewish people returning to their land, if the Jewish people, it’s also the world. The Jewish people are returning to where they were at the beginning of the age when Jesus was here. They were in Israel, so they’re back, they’re back, everything is back. Where was the world 2,000 years ago at the beginning? It was not Christian, it was-

    Dr. Dobson: Roman.

    Rabbi Cahn:

    Roman, Pagan, anti-Christian, anti-Bible. What are we witnessing in the world now? The world is returning to its original state just as the Jewish people were. World culture is returning anti-Christian, un-Christian, throwing off Christianity, mainstream culture. It’s part of the mystery of return, there’s going to be another showdown but it’s part of the mystery of return. But the good return, if that’s happening, where was the Church 2,000 years ago? It wasn’t rich, it wasn’t established, it was the Book of Acts.”…

    So, the Rise of China since 1970, Roe vs. Wade & Institutionalization of Abortion, The Loss of the Vietnam War, The Fall of the Soviet Union in 1990, and the progressive secularization of America (Apostica), still a work-in-progress. The Catholic Church and its Fall from Grace ( Pedifile priests & Aids pandemic amongst the ordained in the dioceses), the Rise of the Robots and Artificial Intelligence (A.I.), The Great Financial Crisis and Recession of 2008-2009, the buildup of unprecedented and unpayable government debts, and the Coming Financial Collapse and Great Depression II, and so on. Its all been written and is playing-out as it needs to. We are only players, not directors. Know your place in the World.

    The Economic Crash & Burn of the US Economy won’t happen until the Rockefeller Empire green lights it. When Col. Prouty in the movie JFK asks (by letter in real life, in person in the movie)
    “Why was Kennedy killed?
    Who benefited?
    Who has the power to cover it up?
    (see last 7 secs of clip)
    David Rockefeller was the black ops banker that gave the CIA as many billions of $ as they needed whenever & wherever. He also headed the Rockefeller & Carnegie Foundations that seed moneyed the CIA into existence, & had all the CFR connections as well as banking connections to the Soviet Union (building their tanks & MIGs, etc) that one could ever want to insert & extract Lee Harvey Oswald without consequence.
    You really need to interview Rodney Howard-Browne on his book “Killing The Planet”. Be prepared for an apocalypse epiphany in pre-reading his book, and a lot of sleeping alot less nights when you realize that, in light of what we now know & without anyone needing to say it, that it is clear that the Rockefeller Empire IS The Shadow Government, and the corrupt officials in Federal Gov’t signing a non-disclosure clause in order to even be there ALL KNOW IT.
