Fed Never Correctly Predicts Big Downturns – Craig Hemke

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Financial writer, market analyst and precious metals expert Craig Hemke predicted at the beginning of 2022, “This is going to be a wild, unpredictable year.  It will be volatile.”  Looks like Hemke was correct.  The S&P was off nearly 20%, the tech heavy NASDAQ was down 33% and gold was basically flat.  What is the trend for 2023?  The Fed says everything is great, but Hemke says, “The Fed has been 0% correct in predicting recessions.”  Hemke explains, “The economy is being reported as a great thing and all these new jobs, and the economy is so robust . . . and you just dig a little deeper, it’s in shambles.”

Hemke studies data called “purchasing manager indices,” also known as PMIs.  Hemke says all that data points to a falling economy.  Hemke says, “There are two companies that put out PMIs, and all of the regional Fed banks . . . all put out their own PMIs. . . . If the measure comes in under 50, that is considered a contracting sector or a contracting part of the economy. . . . The data in December in manufacturing and services are all well below 50.  . . .  Those PMI’s have a perfect eight for eight track record for predicting a recession.  Regardless of the spin . . . the U.S. economy is in deep trouble.”

Hemke says inflation will be coming down, and when it does, look for the Fed to change course on raising interest rates.  Hemke thinks this is going to happen shortly before or after summer of 2023.  Hemke says, “The Fed is going to say, hey, we did it.  We got the rate of inflation below the Fed Funds Rate, and now we can start cutting to save the economy.  This is exactly what they have done in the past, and it is exactly what they will do again.  When they do it, and the flood gates open again—up go the metals.”

Hemke also talks about the highest gold demand by central banks since 1968; what the most important financial event of 2022 was; why gold will hit $2,300 per ounce and silver will be at $35 per ounce before the end of this year;  how fake gold and silver will cause a spectacular move in metals, and finally, what the common man can do to play this volatile market with a very low risk investment.

    Thanks Greg for the great information.

      • Anthony Australia

        Please remind me Greg who on your show last year said that the Politicians soon will start to fall.
        BJ in the UK, ScoMo in Oz, Gladdy in NSW and now Arden in NZ. Hopefully Canada and the US soon.

  2. Cheri Rodriguez

    Silver is already past $35 and pushing $40 if you’re buying American Eagles.

    • Anthony Australia

      1oz Gold coins will be back to $3,000 AUD here very soon.
      Lengthy waiting times on silver coins.

    • Ranger

      That’s because The US Mint is supposed to sell Silver directly to the public, yet they refuse and force distributors to buy from them, then sell to the public.
      Plus, The Federal Reserve Central Bank should be burned to the ground, and all of them hanged.

      • Rich Milford

        Yep, Eagles would probably be 2.00 premium if we could buy them from the banks and credit unions…..who needs “Savings” Bonds……Don’t forget their Corporate and Political friends, we can have a big shindig for them, call it XXXOS or something!

    • jomer

      Strange thing is silver Eagles are cheaper now than when spot price was about $4 less..

      I have an email form mid-January for a bullion dealer offering to buy Eagles for $12 over spot and they were selling them at $18 over spot. Now they are offering $3 over spot and selling at $13 over spot.

    • Lucas Doolin

      For people that live in a country with no precious metals market there is Amazon. I am in the Philippines and every time I make an order I have been adding a silver round or two to the order. If below 175 dollars or so I get free shipping with no import duties. I am paying about 38 dollars per round. Check them out by adding rounds to your cart and see if you will owe duty, shipping or not. Also check your used local sterling silver market (.925).

      As info I never used Amazon while living in the US. It is a necessity now.

    First time having a video issue. Clicking play does nothing. Almost like it’s not a video link. Admittedly too lazy to try other browsers (Brave).
    Went to rumble channel directly to start watching.

      First time I have had video problems as well. Also having the same problem on The New American web site. I was using duck duck go… Switched to Firefox and it is working now

    Has Trump disavowed his KillShots yet?

    If not why not?

    If not why is anyone still supporting him?

    Do Trumpers have any answers not involving saying the name “Joe Biden”?

    • Max

      Jim…TDS is a serious mental disorder…please seek help !
      Also, do dims have ANY answers not involving saying the name “Donald Trump” ?

      • Jim


        You didn’t answer my questions!

        You’re the one suffering from TDS—Trump Delusion Syndrome.

      • Tommy

        Exactly Max.
        TDS includes the symptoms of making shit up out of the blue… ah wait…that’s always been the BIGGEST Symptom going on 7 YEARS.

        • Jim


          You didn’t answer the questions either…

    • Motto

      Why ? It’s called Stockholm syndrome.

    • Paul

      For your viewing Jim,


      I voted for the man who gave up his wealth for my country.
      NOT the man who gave up my country for his wealth.

      His coattail riders in the maga movement are our blessings today.

      • Tommy

        Excellent clip Paul!
        That will have many of the whining ninnies wetting their pants and clutching their pearls in Stage 4 TDS but, there are thousands of clips that have the same effect 😄😄😄

      • Jim

        Paul, you didn’t answer the questions!

    • Patriot Kong

      Recently Trump serrved lots of alcohol at his Mar aLago privvate mansion to these types of individuals who are LGBTQ activitists.

    • David Bagley

      Exactly.. Trump is a deception.. any politician still silent about the 💉 is complicit.. the Stockholm syndrome is a real threat today..

    Michael Pento is credentialed and solid history – superior.
    Nothing new here with CH again.

    • Anthony Australia

      That’s because the formula is simple and straightforward.
      Pento is a self indulgent salesman. Flips on a whim and forever sprouting his credibility.

    • Paul

      It is important to be on the monetary side of value forward, the life being advocated by our unelected officials ultimately will determine the value of life. To me and I think others this is the most pressing issue of all , that needs constant addressing and methods to fight against this for all countries future generations.

      I would rather be poor with a future than monied with the WEF , Rothschild crap.
      We discuss the licking the bones of once great cultures.

  7. PersonaNonGrata

    Hi Greg,
    Love Craig Hemke and enjoyed this interview. However, at 4:50, CH says that the interest on the national debt is $800 billion and, based on the Fed policy of increasing interest rates, asks what will happen when the cost of servicing the debt goes to $1 trillion or even $1.5 trillion? As you say, ‘tell me I’m wrong, when I’m wrong’ but my understanding is that government debt is offered (sold) at a fixed rate of interest (coupon) which does not alter throughout the term of the bond. As bonds are tradable, the price can rise and fall and this alters the effective rate of interest, the yield, but only for investors who purchased in the ‘after’ market – the yield does not alter for investors who bought at the point of issue and who hold to maturity. To my point, rising or falling base rates should not affect the interest the government pays on the national debt because the rates are fixed at time of issue. I am no expert – so please correct my assumptions if incorrect . . .

    • Greg Hunter

      You are correct with existing debt but there is a ton of NEW debt, like the 1.7 trillion just passed at the end of 2022.

      • PersonaNonGrata

        Hi Greg and thanks for the clarification. Rising debt leads to rising cost of servicing the debt – period – unless TPTB experiment with the disastrous idea of issuing debt with a negative yield, thus destroying capital, as in Europe! That said, many commentators express the view that rising base rates affect the cost of servicing ALL of the national debt and, as you confirm, this is not the case. Thanks again.

      • CAP

        Greg … thank you for your great work and passion for truth!

        I did not receive the usual email notifying of a new post — did you send one? Or are our “friends” at big tech blocking?

        • Greg Hunter

          I forgot to send it out, and I just did. Thanks for the reminder–my bad!!

    • Darin

      They change because the debt turns over — the government doesn’t pay it off. The gov’t issues lots of short term notes in addition to the mid range bills and long term bonds. 3 mo, 6 mo, etc. up to 30 yr, so that there is always a big mix of maturity dates. At the end of 2020, at least, the average age of maturity was a little over 5 years. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-economy-yellen-bonds/yellen-says-no-plans-to-lengthen-maturity-of-u-s-treasury-issuance-idUSKBN2BF2LP

      If the current rate is greater than that on maturing instruments, then to roll them over, the government has to issue new notes / bills / bonds with the current higher coupon. Consequently the interest cost in the budget must go up with the increasing rates.

    Also, was in Auckland recently and a Chinese man at a bar said to a friend of mine that in China they are dying by the millions.
    Cremation ovens running 24/7.
    Manufacturing plants losing employees. Really really bad and he was injected twice and scared. Said the deaths being suppressed so world doesn’t know the collapse of China will also collapse the world not just the collapse of German banks etc
    Most people on South Island New Zealand didn’t take the killjab.

    • The True Nolan

      “Most people on South Island New Zealand didn’t take the killjab.”

      Very glad to hear that. I was of the belief that all of NZ had VERY high vaxx rates.

      • Steve

        No some of us did not take it. Ardens Government put out claims that most were vaxxed, but there was a stronghold that refused it. Still too many took it.

    • The Canuck

      The owner of Rebel News here in Canada, Ezra Levant, is in Davos Switzerland covering the WEF annual meeting. He had encountered Pfizer CEO Alfred Bourla on the street and just bombarded him with questions. A must watch video !
      Also, Jacinda Ardern in New Zealand is resigning from her position as Prime Minister. getting out while the gett’n is good ?

    • Glenn Whittington

      It is the very elderly and infirmed that are having the problems in China. They do not allow the clot shots in China. The new variants are another inconvenient cold type illness for healthy, fit people with resilient immune systems. I know first hand. Don’t believe drunks in bars, especially if they are Falun Gong assets. ; )

    Thanks Mr Hunter and Mr Hemke.

  11. Steven Kayser

    I would like to respectfully point out to Craig that he might have missed something. As the importing nations as a whole have a declining energy supply, banking no longer has a commercial basis. Fiat money lending connot continue without an increasing energy supply. The Fed is foreclosing on america and closing up shop.

    Peak Oil Happened. The fiat money gods are taking final profits and closing up shop.
    If continuing debt service requires increasing energy supply, what would you do? https://stevenlawrencekayser.substack.com/p/peak-oil-happened-the-fiat-money

  12. jomer

    I personally do not see $35 silver, it is too volatile. when silver takes off, I see it blowing right through the $30’s and low $40’s. However, there is the exception if it cannot break through the resistance at $50 it could settle back into the mid-30’s as it consolidates for the next leg up.

    Sliver is like a rollercoaster, either it up at a peak or down in the valley, but it doesn’t seem to spend much time in the middle ground.

    • Harry

      To consider how really undervalued silver is – simply think about the fact that silver’s price is still below its 1980 high of $50 US dollars per ounce – yet Gold today at $1910 is currently “More Then Double it’s 1980 high of $800 US dollars” – simple logic suggests that the silver price “right now” should be more then double it’s 1980 high and be selling today for well over $100 US dollars per ounce!!!
      PS: When the price of silver finally catches up with reality those silver one ounce coins you buy at between $24 and $34 US dollars will give you 3 to 4 times your money!!!

      • Harry

        Remember – the corrections in the gold price of $100, $200 and $300 dollars – and the corrections in the silver price of $2, $4 and $6 dollars – are just big picture “noise” – and should be used as an opportunity “to add to positions”!!

      • Tin foil hat

        Hunts brothers were responsible for the $50/oz price back in the 80s by buying up all the silver.
        Presently, Russia and China Central Banks are stockpiling gold and the Hunts brothers are died.

        • Harry

          TFH – China is today’s “Hunt Brothers” (and they are currently moving into silver “in very large size” (and we can see the effects of this tightening in wholesale supply by the premiums we are currently paying for our silver coins)!! – Stephen Leeb sees Chinese demand for silver (Just to Build Solar Panels) will push silver’s price well over $100 dollars per ounce!! – https://www.bullionvault.com/gold-news/buying_silver_082220116

          • Tin foil hat

            Hunts stockpiling of silver wasn’t a hedge against a commodity – which is needed for the solar panel industry as in China, it was a strategy to hedge against the voracious inflation of the 70s—a monumental bet against the U.S. dollar.

            China and Russia are not stockpiling gold as a hedge against a commodity needed to build space ships, they are trying to break away from the dollar by means of gold or simply betting against the U.S. dollar.

            I’m not against holding silver, I own physical silver, silver mines (HL, PAAS) and paper silver (PSLV, SIVR). I’m just saying silver and gold are not exactly in the same category – not yet.

          • jomer

            Another big difference the Hunt brothers made is they cleaned out all the ‘weak handed’ silver holders. My local paper often showed pictures of long lines of people waiting to sell their sterling silver platters, candle sticks, tea sets to duff bags of junk silver coins to the silver buyers.

            To bust the Hunt Brothers monopoly the mint opens its vault and sold its huge holding of junk silver coins which lasted until 1998’ish.

            All this silver is gone, so I do not see the recycling market getting flooded like it did back then.

            • Tin foil hat

              The U.S. Mint didn’t break the Hunt Brothers, it was the COMEX.

              In response to the Hunts’ accumulation, the exchange rules regarding leverage were abruptly changed; COMEX placed heavy restrictions on the purchase of commodities on margin with no warning.

              The Hunt brothers had borrowed heavily to finance their purchases, they were unable to meet their obligations as silver price began to drop.

    The Fed Never Correctly Predicted This Big Downturn – https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Fcdn.howmuch.net%2Farticles%2FRise-and-Fall-of-the-USD-64c2.jpg&f=1&nofb=1 – the Fed snakes simply keep talking with their forked tongue about how they are keeping the US dollar “strong” with their high interest rate policy – yet – they are printing trillions in new money for Biden’s Expanding Ukrainian War, printing free money for the ever expanding hoard of illegal aliens and printing trillions for all the ingrained political pork programs – requiring “a high money printing policy” that fuels more inflation even as higher interest rates are used “to supposedly keep the dollar strong” (but as shown in the chart above the Fed is in reality really embarked on a “weak dollar policy”)!!!

    • Harry

      The Saudi’s looking at the above chart have now come to the realization that they are giving away their oil for “nothing” (and they are “not happy about it”) – so the Saudi’s are about to join the BRIC nations – this will be the death knell to the US dollar (and other fiat currencies) and Gold will become the ultimate asset to save (protecting the purchasing power of all those who hold it)!!

  14. Roger Stamper

    tks craig greg

  15. antoinette dawson

    Craig nailed it, regarding the most important event of 2022. Gonzola Lira said that the FED begged the White House to not kick Russia from SWIFT and that it would have devastating consequences. We all knew what it meant when we saw it happen and the sane response was one of shock, that the White House would sabotage the world reserve currency.

    • Harry

      Remember the puppets working for the WEF need to weaken the US dollar “to worthlessness” (looking at this chart – https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Fcdn.howmuch.net%2Farticles%2FRise-and-Fall-of-the-USD-64c2.jpg&f=1&nofb=1 – we are there – “we own nothing”) – now the plan is to bring in their “crypto dollar” (also worth nothing) but with “a very big control advantage” – the puppets working for the WEF will be able to control your ability to spend your US crypto currency – and thus force you to do whatever they want (like take their Killer Clot Shots) – if you need proof of the Globalist agenda simply look at what the puppets running the Canadian Government did to the Truckers who refused to take their poison jabs (the bank accounts of the truckers were seized) and this was even before the more controlling crypto currency was rolled out)!!
      PS: Anyone thinking about buying physical gold or silver should realize that they won’t be allowed to make such purchases with the new crypto that is introduced – so you need to do it now before cash currency is declared illegal!!!

  16. john

    Gold and silver will go up once the Bricks go on a gold standard to destroy the fiat toilet paper once and for all, the FED will not allow the metals to reach its true price as long as they remain in power. The US debt clock showed gold @ 30K per oz, and now the dollar to gold ratio is 873 per oz. and silver was 3K per oz and is now $119 per oz. from a few months ago. Looks like the FED is repricing the metals to a worthless low just like the worthless $

    • Harry

      Everyone should be taking advantage of the unbelievable opportunity they now have to use their worthless Fed dollars “to buy real physical gold and silver” – that will be used to underpin the world’s return to some sort of a gold standard (now starting with the Bricks nations)!!

    • Pete+only

      John, good points. I just wanted to add that the U.S Debt Clock now shows silver paper contracts for silver at almost 450 for one physical ounce available at the present time, which is about 4x compared to paper gold vs physical gold. This is put a different way I suppose, but nevertheless indicates how much potential value silver and gold might unwind to when the time comes.
      A silver dime might one day be able to purchase a loaf of bread. Perspective is everything.
      Never forget that only a few percent of the people actually own any physical silver and gold outside of their wedding rings, and while they may think that they already own it in their retirement accounts, unfortunately there may be dozens of other people owning that same paper ounce.

  17. L. Bos

    Gold is not going up, The fiat is going down

    • Harry

      But looking at this chart we should expect “a correction” to eventually begin – http://www.321gold.com/editorials/chan/chan011823new/1.png – perhaps when gold gets up to 2000 to 2050 – so don’t jump all in – take advantage of the corrections that always take place (the way the “big money” does it)!!

  18. John Petushin

    I want to buy gold for $873 per oz from the US mint because the US Debt clock says gold to dollar ratio is 873 per oz, but the mint told me it’s $2,720 per oz , how can that be? The US debt clock is a government website, and it states gold sells for $873 per oz. Looks like the US Mint doesn’t know what the true price of gold is either. I now believe everybody knows nothing about everything.

    Do you remember how suddenly the financial crisis of 2008 seemed to appear? Most modern crises are the result of artifice. Governments and quasi-government corporate entities increase their franchises by failure. What is the next step in our subjugation? Some proposals are already published. The groundwork for a New Normal is being laid. A New Normal that nobody would choose unless they were driven by fear and hopelessness into despair.

  22. Ron Lang

    Russia recognized Ukraine’s independence and sovereignty over Crimea in a nuclear agreement outlined in the Budapest Memorandum of 1994. It was Russia who broke its commitments under the Budapest Memorandum in 2014, with its annexation of Crimea and aggression in eastern Ukraine. There were/are no bioweapon labs or any nuclear labs secretly hiding somewhere at the behest of America/Ukraine. You have taken the bait of a former KGB propagandist, Putin. You know little to nothing about Ukraine. I have lived in Ukraine for over 20 years, have you ever been even close to the border? I applaud Craig for not digressing into your personal, erroneous tirade against Ukraine. He stayed on the subject he knows best.

    • Bob Monroe

      What a crock Ron! The comedian the Us administration put in as “president” should be indicted and punished to the full extent of the law as well as the Nazis in Washington who are responsible.

    Greg, Interesting discussion…but as far as mentioning Zoltan Pozsar work…hmm.
    A lot of differing discussions there…not to say what Hemke is suggesting is not happening…but the why might be suspect… that and HOW we get thru or out of the mess needs clarification as to, does the FED even know, and have a ‘REAL’ handle and the tools it ‘says’ it has? …. OR….is their ‘word speak’ just that…all just a psych-ops…like so much else just a way to ‘influence/ herd’ people in a particular way to go. Yes, I see the advantages of people getting debt free as possible and having physical commodities rather than leveraged and hypothecated paper assets…BUT if many people move to physical like the big push seems to be…will that now dry up and further starve liquidity that will help push people into the use of CBDC and their high interest rate credit cards as ‘they’ hope to take increasing control over the masses via the ‘social scoring’ apparatus the are setting up? Thus, debt free, holding some PM, and holding cash? So much of this ‘banking problem’ seems so increasing socially engineered does not help?…

    Ukraine, you better hope you get defeated by Russia quickly.

    If you eventually beat Russia, you’ll be forced with a gun at your nations head to join the EU and NATO.

    A year after that, your Ukraine nation (a peon subsidiary of the WEF) will be looted of all natural resources with all the proceeds going to Brussels (your new master), and your people won’t know what a Ukrainian is anymore, you’ll be expected to shoulder 15 to 20 million North African refugees. I’m certain you Nazi-Ukrainians will just love that!!! And there will be nothing Ukraine can do about it, Ukraine will have as much power as a dead Tesla. LOL@Ukraine

    Kiev will look like London and Paris, balloon to 15 million people but nowhere to be found a single ancient ancestor of either. That’s OK, the stupid American working taxpayer will pay for everyone’s entitlement welfares world wide.

    • Human Livestock

      In the end, a trillion dollars of USTaxpayer money will create a new Ukraine, where less than 1% of the Ukrainians are Biden billionaires and over 99% live a life even worse than ever before.

      When the DEMS/RINOS tout that this is an investment in democracy, these nutty assholes should be put away, like It would be great if each working taxpayer that had their tax money stolen from them, confiscating hundreds of thousands of daollars EACH involuntarily… each taxpayer would get weekly dividend checks $$$ direct from the foreign government from all the foreign nations we have rebuilt throught history. Otherwise, this war shit is never an investment.

    Here’s a reporter in Davos hammering the CEO of Pfizer about the Covid shots. He appears guilty as hell to me. These people, as Greg says, need to be put in a cinder block room with a floor drain.
    The video keeps pausing. Just press play and keep viewing.

    Greg, something is wrong with your site. I have been trying for many hours to watch this interview but cannot. I can watch Rumble, Brighteon and Youtube but not your site. You are being blocked or hacked.
    Lo Iyrah!!!

    Ha – The Scorpion is out in NZ. Hopefully back under the rock from whence it came.

    Would’nt be surprised if she was caught up to her horse teeth in bribes.

    No guns there? How about a wood-chipper, feet first?

    I have tried everything resetting modem… the worlks

    Got a blister on my finger and it still ain’t workin!

    What a great interview!
    Thank you Greg!

    When China bought the amount of gold it did in 2022, you get the sense they’re preparing to make a momentous move in the not too distant future.
    – Listen to my new parody song called “Joe’s Yesterday” about his classified docs dilemma here:

  37. Jeffrobbins

    I like listening to Hemke- good interview. Another angle to elevate Au and Ag-As i get older the more i consider how insidious taxes are. Our money represents time and talent spent serving someone or producing something and governments want a portion of that. Taxes are like a partial slavery-accounting scheme. Gold and silver are a way to store years of labor and if i should die unexpectedly, the state won’t get any of that, the wife and kids will get that stored labor- i already paid the income taxes on the money used to purchase the metal. I just read about dem. states (including mine-WA) wanting to create wealth taxes. They can only tax what is titled, deeded, registered, etc. Of coarse the devil is in the details- keep your eyes on wealth taxes.

  38. Marie Joy

    The Deep State likes DeSantis and they hate Trump. That tells me Trump is a good guy and DeSantis is not what he seems.

    • Greg Hunter

      Not arguing with you but DeSantis is putting on quite a show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbrhVme4Alo

      • Matt Kaatz

        They are both compromised.

      • Marie Joy

        I wonder if DeSantis would be interested in being Trump’s 2024 vice presidential running mate. I don’t want us to start eating our own.

        • Harry

          Trump should be given the VP spot in a DeSantis Administration (of all the Governors in our Nation only DeSantis “is using his God given brains” and actually doing the logical things that make sense for his constituents)!!!

    We are living in the times gold was intended for – a plummeting dollar. And what has happened with gold? It has tanked while virtually every other commodity soared. The dollar has lost half of it’s value since 2019 and yet it takes fewer 50 cent dollars to buy an ounce of gold. I’m done with gold, and silver isn’t much better. Silver has long awaited peaks but never sustains them.

    • Greg Hunter

      I agree J D!!

    • Jeffrobbins

      JD- i would give this as an answer; Gold has been relegated to the sidelines of finance and the question should be will it move back into center stage. At this moment the world is being split in two- east/west. We need to take a step back from the daily affairs and watch the role of the dollar and Triffins dilemma. Personally, i hold some metal, but am really excited about some fruit trees on order and using two water sources (the pond water should be the bomb). The Bible lays out tremendous value for things that are living, metals are not.

      • Harry

        We may soon have “living metals” – as the WEF implements their Cyber Borg Agenda for Humanity (that will most likely require a huge amount of un-corruptible gold wiring inside their massive AI Hive Computer Brain and also within every Borg’s brain!!

    • Steve

      Now is the time to be in Gold and Silver hopefully purchased some years back. Watch the charts.

    • Randy Best

      Surely you know that the price of gold is manipulated by the bankers. We don’t have true price discovery and they want everyone believing in worthless fiat.

      • Harry

        It is up to the common man to determine what kind of “nothing” they want to own – fiat paper, electronic crypto or gold and silver – personally owning gold and silver (even if the banksters keep the price at zero) “will make me happy” when the alternative is owning worthless government fiat or worthless government crypto!!

  40. john M beasley

    It is interesting, we all think of the money supply as being fake – fiat currency that the FED banking cartel prints at will, but I had never considered paper gold and silver as being fake gold and silver.

  41. Rob

    Greg, THANK YOU. I’ve been listening for years and never had technical issues on iPhone using safari.
    Your interviews and work are the best.

    • Greg Hunter

      Thanks Rob!!

  42. Steve Bice

    While stress can certainly age us, Jacinda has the haggard dark-baggy-eyed look that so many have after Covid vaccines. She has aged 15 years overnight. I wouldn’t be surprised if she suddenly has reported health issues…or already has them and is keeping them quiet.

    My opinion is that Tom Brady also has that look…while recognizing he has had his share of stress this last year. His haggard look and husky voice that he couldn’t shake occurred in the immediate aftermath of his reported second shot. Just my observation…


    • Steve Bice

      I just watched her resignation announcement again. When she says she will not be seeking reelection, it looks like her mouth droops twice on the right side. It could be emotion, but it seemed off. Since I don’t watch her speak often, I don’t know if this is “normal” for her.

      Did anyone else notice this?

      • Harry

        If she took the jab the effects will soon present themselves – what I want to know is: “Did she jab her baby”??

  43. Hillbilly Ron

    16 Jan 2023 – Trump blames de Santis and remains unapologetic as our family, friends and neighbors are being destroyed or killed each day from his vax:

    • Harry

      When Trump speaks of the 100 million lives he saved – is he referring to those who will remain alive in the world (after everyone else is dead from the jab)???

  44. Prospector

    Well Greg , Trump has made a tacit admission about vaxxine problems. Saying it’s
    ” relatively small numbers “. He is either out of the loop information wise , or he is trying to minimize the story. See what you think.

    Clip at @TheChiefNerd – Twitter , Jan 19

    NEW — Trump Dismisses COVID Vaccine Safety Concerns, Says They Saved Millions of Lives

    “You have many reports that say the vaccines saved tens of millions of lives and without the vaccines you would have had a thing like we had in 1917.”

  45. Pete+only

    Greg, thanks for having Craig Hemke on again on your show.
    His thesis for the declining interest rate later this year is only contingent on investors believing that the actual inflation rate is what is stated by the Federal Reserve.
    In years past, investors and institutions actually believed the inflation numbers stated, but this year might be different. True inflation is likely double or even triple what is stated by the Federal Reserve, and people might not be suckered as they were in the past.
    As is the roll out by the BRICS nations that will be introducing a currency that is backed by physical commodity based materials such as energy, silver, gold, copper, uranium, rare earths and so forth, and might include food stuffs such as wheat, corn, and other crops, but the point is that this currency will be backed by something that is actually real and physical, much unlike what the we have now, and not likely to go “poof” like a digital bitcoin might do.

  46. Lucy HF

    around 11 minutes in Ed Dowd tells Alex Jones the same thing about Trump’s vax pushing that Catherine Austin Fitz tried to warn Greg Hunter but to no avail.


  47. jim

    I’ve heard gold is going to $50,000 an oz., silver to $500, for over 10 years now…mostly from folks selling both.

    • Greg Hunter

      Go long the USD my friend. You’ll always get your dollars because they will just print what they need to pay you. How much those dollars buy is another story.

      • jim

        I did not say I didn’t own both physical gold and silver, and a royalty company. I was just pointing out all the crazy hype it gets from some people when the price begs to differ.

    • Harry

      Jim – Lets say gold goes to $50,000 dollars per ounce tomorrow – would you actually sell your one ounce gold coin for just $50,000 US dollars when the US dollar is currently worth “less then a penny in purchasing power”?? – https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Fcdn.howmuch.net%2Farticles%2FRise-and-Fall-of-the-USD-64c2.jpg&f=1&nofb=1 – or would you continue to hold it “as protection from the US dollar falling to $0.0001 cent”???

  48. Randy Best

    Until we have true supply & demand in PMs, it seems to me the central bankers (evil ones) can slam down the price anytime they want to.

    • Harry

      Let the banksters slam the gold price down – we should take advantage of the Golden Opportunity – good times for the banksters and their fiat dollars won’t last forever – in fact in a few months the Saudi’s will not be selling their oil priced in US dollars anymore – the Saudi’s have finally wised up and want “something of value” for their precious oil (like gold)!!

  49. Frank S.

    There is no doubt that the Dollar, and all national currencies, will be replaced by a single, global currency. The Bible alludes to that fact ala “the mark of the Beast”. Therefore, no single nation will hold sway over the world monetary system. That power will belong to the Global Elites. Gold and silver will be “king” in an underground economy, which will allow its “value” (based solely on off-market supply and demand) to self-determine.
    Will the Feds try another 1933 “gold grab”? Probably. Steer clear of banks to avoid that.

  50. Cry Me a Ruble

    I have been viewing a lot of clips of the WEF which is currently meeting in Davos. The more time spent viewing these monsters the more the Bible makes perfect sense.

  51. Kevin Berner

    https://mises.org/wire/why-fed-bankrupt-and-why-means-more-inflation Greg,here is a great article about the Federal Reserve.You should try to get Ryan Mcmaken as a guest for a future show.Take care,Kevin.
