Middle East War Coming, Economy Tanks Fed Hikes, Obama Care Implosion and Bailout
By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com WNW 218 12.4.15
As terrible as the terror attack in San Bernardino, California, is it’s not really the big story. I know you have been seeing wall to wall coverage of this attack. I am sure some Democrats and the President would like this to be workplace violence, but let’s face it, it was a terror attack carried out by violent Islamic extremists. I am equally sure the President and some Democrats would like to use this as a way to have anti-gun legislation. Both of these views are delusional and out of touch with most Americans. Look no further than Black Friday gun sales. They broke records, and that was before this awful attack. Not all Muslims are bad, but the population is so big globally that if just 10% were radicalized, it would be 160 or 170 million people. This is the new asymmetrical warfare, and it will increase because conflict in the Middle East is increasing.
This brings us to the big story, and that is the increasing tensions mounting in Syria, and military assets and boots on the ground are converging there. Tensions between NATO and Russia have been mounting since Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet. Russia has been hitting ISIS oil facilities and cutting off their financing. Evidence shows Turkey has been buying the oil and financing ISIS. I said months ago that the Obama Administration was not serious about defeating ISIS because it was not cutting off its oil and bombing the wells it controls and uses to finance terror. Now we know why. The U.S. had to know who was buying the oil and, therefore, was complicit in financing the terror. Not only that, but Democrats and Republicans are both worried about what is going on. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is wondering if Turkey should even be in NATO after shooting down that Russian jet and how it is apparently backing ISIS. Meanwhile, House Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has questioned the wisdom of putting U.S. jets in a position to counter Russian jets on the Turkey/Syrian border and said it could lead the U.S. into a nuclear war with Russia. Retired General Wesley Clark pointed out how sticky this whole Middle East mess really is when he said, “Let’s be very clear: ISIS is not just a terrorist organization; it is a Sunni terrorist organization. That means it blocks and targets Shi’a. And that means it’s serving the interests of Turkey and Saudi Arabia – even as it poses a threat to them.”
Back home, Fed Head Janet Yellen is signaling an interest rate hike is in the cards for this year. The headline reads “Fed Chair Ready to Raise Rates at Own Pace.” What does that mean? Apparently, the stock market and bond markets think it means something bad because both tanked this week. Gregory Mannarino of TradersChoice.net called the stock market top in May, and it looks like he’s been right ever since. I don’t think we are going to see the Santa Clause rally this year. Meanwhile, the economy continues to sink. The latest bad news comes from imploding durable goods and factory orders.
Obama Care is being confirmed as the disaster I told you it would be. This huge Democrat lie of public policy is imploding. The so-called healthcare co-ops are dropping like flies. Now, Obama Care needs a bailout, and it doesn’t look the Republican Congress is going to come up with billions of dollars to keep this turkey of a healthcare plan afloat. It there is not taxpayer bailout, healthcare providers will go broke or pullout altogether. Democrats should be ashamed for lying and now asking for tax money to bail out their fraud on the American public.
Join Greg Hunter as he talks about these stories and more in the Weekly News Wrap-Up.
LOL emphasis on “should be”. But you’re right, they’re Democrats and they have no shame.
The Democrat Party should be outlawed and all Democrats in government tried for treason and imprisoned/deported/hung if found guilty.
Ashamed, yea that’s the new reality even from Greg! Our citizen’s are dying in the streets, our military has been used ,abused and confused, all for these stinking politicians. When is America going to grow some b***s and put the blame where it belongs?
Yes, Democrats should be ashamed. But so should Republicans. It’s downright disgusting what our elected officials are allowing to happen to our once great country. It still amazes me how many people fall for the Republican vs. Democrat facade in assigning blame!
Please go away! You obviously do not want to hear the truth. Good luck with living in your fantasy land liberal world. It will come crashing down soon, unfortunately it will crash on us all.
Please contact your local adult education program and enroll in a basic elementary school level reading comprehension class. This appears to b e an emergency you need to tend to.
San Bernadino was a drill gone live
Obamacare = de facto socialism, and when you start out trillions in red ink, it’s even more short lived than when you start out in the black.
Great weekly wrap up! Love your passion!
(Noticed your eye, not sure if it is a stye or just irritation: my grandmother’s treatment for a stye was simple. She had us put a steeped and still HOT black tea bag on our eye, as hot as we could stand it, wrapped in a handkerchief. It always worked. Hope this helps!)
Ah, okay. You are a trooper! Thanks again!
C’mon Greg! Start rockin’ an eye patch!!
More overtime, more incoming. Trying to find a nice card. (I’m a colossal savage when it comes to such things)
You looked good Greg. I’ve seen you look more tired. I know you work almost 24/7
This is exactly how I cleared out an infection I had under my fingernail. Nothing else worked! But I used Chamomile tea….via my grandmother.
WD, really? Good to know because I usually have chamomile and mint tea in the pantry. Not sure why it works but it is a simple remedy to try!
About 15 years ago I had a terrible ingrown nail. That I finally got out myself. But it became infected. It got redder and worse.
I used all the over the counter meds that fought infections. But it got wore and redder. I had no money, no job and no insurance.
I was terrified I would loose my toe. I asked my grandmother for some money to go see doctor, she looked at it and told me to steep chamomile tea as hot as I could and wrap the toe with the teabag. The next morning it was 50% better. By the 3rd it was completely infection free. To this day I have never seen anything work that fast.
Isn’t it amazing what the old-timers know that has been lost to the younger generations. If we were to have a full-blown fightin war with the US homeland threatened like in WWII, how would the young people today survive? They have NO skills when it comes to this sort of thing. One exception-street wise gang members and farm kids may be the only ones who know how to survive.
I tried to answer some of your questions in 12/2/2015 if you look back there.
Yep – we see it all over again.
It wasn’t a Islamic – it was a angry worker.
Little by little after seeing they couldn’t hide it they then went on to say it was the Christmas Tree that was at fault!!!
He seen this Christmas tree and went postal.
What do we have running this country?
I can’t believe these people graduated kindergarten.
would like you to interview john lott author “more guns less crime”
i would like to know why the economy is going down hill and all signs show but i work for a company 60 miles west of st louis mo. wink wink making axles for trailers for18 wheelers and landing gear and we are calling back people from layoff and had been told by the company we will be busy at least through march. 1 plant has opened and 2 more to open about 5 miles further west. 1 of those to do with shingles and the other is tied to a truck and van plant about 25 miles east off of hwy 70. but the country is tanking.
john kerry a nobel peace prize? lol! obama got one! lol! FOR WHAT! are they starting to hand those out like candy? we must be the laughing stock to the world
You had a tremendous amount to cover and did it so well (thank you).
The only way to cool Putin’s jets (just a little) would be to kick Turkey out of NATO, but of course that isn’t going to happen. The players are all lining up and war as we haven’t seen the likes of before is coming soon as predicted in scripture (this is quite evident). All we can do now is to pray for guidance/prepare.
I 2nd John Lott that would be a great interview.
Hello Greg. Thank you for another very good WNW. Well done sir.
In terms of the ACA, the Iran (no deal), as well as the reports from the FED, all of it is just more lies by the most corrupt US administration in modern history. The presidents legacy will follow that fool into history for years to come. But only IF the material being presented to our children and grandchildren is unbiased, which I have little confidence in.
You said it best when you stated “the democrats should be ashamed”.
greg, congratulations on another wnw. For an interesting take on the Fed and a rate hike, see jim comiskey’s analysis dated Dec 2, partt 2. on you tube.
Concerning interest rates … just calmly think about this … will Janet Yellen at the Fed pull the plug on a financial system they were created in 1913 to save?? … the answer is obviously “not on your life” … people who say “it can never happen” point to the fact that in every prior recession the Fed either lowered rates or added liquidity into the system … they can’t conceive of how the Fed who always lowered rates as the economy sinks into recession can even think of rising rates … and they can’t conceive of how the Fed can pile even more debt on top of the trillions in debt it already owes … but consider a Fed that now out of necessity must think out of the box … they can’t jump start the economy in the traditional way by lowering rates … but … they can add liquidity … but this time they can’t just add liquidity … they must add “exponential liquidity” not only to boost the economy but to provide the liquidity necessary to cover defaulting oil derivatives … all that liquidity will be inflationary … and inflation drives the price of bonds downward … but the US must continue to sell bonds to cover the cost of government, entitlements, perpetual wars, etc…. they can’t allow the T-bond market to collapse … so they must raise rates to make the bonds more attractive to the mutual fund managers that are currently getting negative interest rates on the money they are keeping in the bank … but raising rates will cause interest rate derivatives to implode … so the Fed will need to generate even more liquidity to save the banks on the loosing side of huge interest rate derivative positions … the exponential money supply increase this will create will likely crash the bond market … unless the Fed raises rates high enough to attract buying from fund managers that see the dollars in the bank losing more and more value as exponential money creation goes into Zimbabwe overdrive … so there you have it … the Fed “must” exponentially expand the money supply to create enough liquidity in the system “to save it” AND raise interest rates at the same time “to make T-bonds more attractive” in such an inflationary environment … gold and silver investors “are beginning to sniff this out” (that the inflationary implications of coming Fed policy that bails out derivative defaults will more then likely nullify any rise in interest rates that will go along with it (normally rising rates is a negative for precious metals but the expected exponential inflation of the money supply will swamp the negative effects of rising rates)!
Go to the bottom of the following chart and zoom in on the 60 day chart for gold … and see that it has clearly broken up out of its downtrend … a Christmas Rally is upon us!
… MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL ….
Paul, your theories are all reasonable. I would like to add 2 more theories….. 1st, I don’t believe rates will be raised (see #2) but there is the possibility that they will to destroy the US economy (on purpose) and also attempt to destroy all those BRIC nations gunning for the dollar………. I personally lean toward #2 being they want to appear as though they will raise rates but can’t. So they need a REASON not to……. #2 False flag before Dec 15th (Fed day).
Good WNW… The first casualty of war is the truth and the BS is flying hot & heavy over the ISIS Oil dealings. Not surprising that there was another staged terror attack to distract the American people.
Farook’s wife did not have body armor on … she was in shorts and a blouse?? http://img.thesun.co.uk/aidemitlum/archive/02588/San_Bernardino_str_2588896a.jpg
What happened to the third suspect? At first there were three shooters.
Done. Done. And done. Another great week Greg! As you pointed out, transportation is the real arbiter re the state of our economy. Pundits can spin the economy all they want, but the truth lies in transportation. If they aren’t shipping, they aren’t selling. It really is that simple. Best regards.
In a righteous and moral world you would be safe to believe in what you are told … but should we “believe” the transportation numbers being given to us? … when the temperature numbers being given to us (to prove global warming while Antarctica freezes over) were rigged … the inflation numbers given to us (to deny COLA increases for retirees) are rigged … the QE numbers (that were trillions larger then reported) were rigged … the gold and silver numbers are rigged … the manipulated interest rate numbers rigged … etc. rigged … etc. rigged???
If I see all the food on a shelf labeled “not Kosher” … but then find “one can” on that shelf “without a label” … you won’t find me eating it!
Hope your well Greg, minor eye irritation? Thanks for last weeks mention of your area and aerial aerosol spraying. Economy headline, truck driver lay-offs within the US, about a 60 percent decline of dry goods delivery. Love what you do sir.
Last paragraph says it all about Obama as President. “Disaster, lie, imploding, broke, fraud.” Bravo Greg!
I will always remember a quote from Erdogan. It went something like this: ” Democracy is simply a train that we will ride to a station where we will get off.” As an Islamist, he was telling the world his plans and tactic for ending Turkey’s democracy and installing sharia law, etc. He is most probably using Turkey’s NATO membership and ISIS oil for the same purpose.
He’s a Turkey true and true!
I think Obamacare is a backdoor subsidy for Medicare and with an average of 10000 per day reaching age 65 starting on 1-1-11 and continuing for 19 years I expect this turkey to survive many more Thanksgivings one way or another. The lie of affordable healthcare for the masses is more palatable than raising taxes on people who actually do that thing called voting.
By calling for gun control, Hussein Obama the muslim Democrat is blaming Americans for the terrorist attacks instead of the true murderers, islamic terrorists.
It’s like blaming the Indian’s for the slaughter of the buffalo’s!
The Iran deal was not about nuclear proliferation. It is about Iran selling oil outside the petro dollar system. It appears as though sanctions convinced the Iranians to resume selling oil in dollar terms and so the nuclear nonsense is dropped as a result. Israel makes a stink about this subject to keep the pity-party and thus financial and military support pipeline going. By the way, have you noticed that Israel never gets attacked by the militants. Hmmmm, wonder why. I also wonder why these terrorists are always killed in shootouts as opposed to being captured and questioned. Remember the Maine! Remember the Maine. That false flag event in Havana which started a war. Think this is any different. Connect the dots.
Thanks for the wrap up Greg. Law of the sea demands all agreements be signed. This is big news yet as I recall one of the leaders of Iran told Kerry was lying the day after Kerry claimed they had a deal. Maybe the knutbell prize should go to Iran’s leader. I look for Israel to step up next. This slow war could go hot any minute.
You look for Israel to step up next? … perhaps … but only if neocon McCain nominates Netanyahu for the “Noble” Peace Prize before the Iranian leader lays claim to it … but then again Turkey’s President may offer some stiff competition!
Paul In todays world lock, and load is all I know for certain. Protecting my loved ones, and securing there well being is all that matters.
You mentioned the shooting down of the Russian plane and the subsequent shooting of one of the pilots.
I think you are being unfair in your statement. The whole incident was just “work place violence.”
I am jesting of course.
Have a good day, Greg.

Murder And Mayhem In The Middle East
Why it matters to those living in the West
Something is strange about the Bernardino terrorist incident … when co-workers were asked about Farook … https://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2015/12/farook.jpg?quality=100&strip=all&w=216&strip=all … they said “he never struck me as a fanatic, he never struck me as suspicious” … another co-worker who shared a cubicle with Farook said his colleague appeared to be “living the American dream” with his new wife and baby … another worker said “Farook rarely started a conversation but was well-liked” … and a baby shower was recently held for the couple … http://nypost.com/2015/12/03/muslim-newlyweds-slaughter-coworkers-who-threw-them-a-baby-shower/ … but the “really odd thing” that stands out is that the police said Farook and his wife “were dressed in combat gear” … look at Farook’s dead wife on the ground … http://img.thesun.co.uk/aidemitlum/archive/02588/San_Bernardino_str_2588896a.jpg … she is dressed in shorts and a mini blouse … not exactly combat gear???
There should be no question at this point that ISIS is backed and funded by Washington, so the most effective way to eliminate them would be the next time they come in for their paychecks, SHOOT THEM!
This is a vital piece of information, considering that our Congress put the American tax payer on the hook for 80 Trillion dollars in bank derivative debt only a year ago.
Put that in focus with the fact that China is getting ready to do a Gold Price Fix sometime in December that will send these Banks over the edge, and you have a recipe for disaster on a monumental scale. If you haven’t taken your money out of the bank by the end of 2015, you can kiss it goodbye.
Here’s a backstop to my last post for those that doubt the validity of it. It should be no surprise by now that our illustrious Congress passes these bills in the dead of night on the Holidays. Growing up, I hung out with thieves. The Holidays were their favorite time to break in and steal peoples possessions. That should give you a clue as to what is coming.
If you still have your money in the bank, you may want to read this. There will be no more bailouts for Banks in financial trouble by either the Fed, or the Federal Government. They’ve washed their hands of it,, and have now left you holding the bag.
Ted Cruz on gun rights:
“Unfortunately, the goal of both President Obama and Hillary Clinton, is to consistently–at every turn–to look to weaken the constitutional rights of American citizens. And in particular, to undermine our constitutional right to keep and bear arms. You don’t get rid of the bad guys by getting rid of our guns. You get rid of the bad guys by using our guns. And, rather than respond to radical Islam and terrorism with a commitment from the president to keep this nation safe–to kill the terrorists–instead, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton refuse to even utter the words “radical Islamic terrorism.
“At a time of growing threats to our safety and security from radical Islamic terrorists, the right to keep and bear arms of law-abiding American citizens has never been more vital.
“The gun control push illustrates the misguided priorities of President Obama and Hillary Clinton. They refuse to stand up and do what is necessary to defeat radical Islamic terrorism, to defeat ISIS, to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Instead, they remain obsessed with disarming the American citizenry, of stripping us of our fundamental right to protect our homes, our lives, and our families.
“I would note that the calls from liberals for more and more gun controls in the wake of the San Bernardino shootings ignores the fact that California already has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country–so their policies and solutions have already been implemented in California. And to the surprise of no one, the laws failed to prevent this horrific attack.”
We Americans are getting our asses kicked by the liberals. They have destroyed our economy. They have legalized the murder of babies. They have legalized open, recreational drug use. They steal our money and give it to the lazy and unproductive. They have destroyed our borders. They have outlawed the Name of God and his Word in public venues. They have destroyed our reputation in the world.
I would add that they do most of the items you mentioned WITH the help of many Republicans.
As you say Grafique … it is not the “natural born” Americans doing all the terrorist acts … so why should good Americans be targeted to have their guns taken away? … It’s just like in the old days when the government wanted to put the Indians in FEMA camps … they would send out their soldiers “dressed as Indians” to scalp some innocent women and children in a false flag operation … in order to justify more stringent government actions to take away the God given rights of the indigenous people and to steal their lands and property … I bet if Buffalo Bill was running for President back then … he would be telling the voters “We must take away all the bows and arrows from the Indian’s” … in order to … “Stop the Wanton Slaughter of the Buffalo’s”!
I have read through all your comments regarding Ted Cruz, and while I do not argue the merits of what he stands for, says he will do and sees things I do wonder to myself, and aloud, how this Ted Cruz is going to accomplish anything at all if his supporters merely vote for him and go back home. IF ted Cruz is going to get anything done his supporters are going to have to first and foremost practically force him into office against the substantial will of a great lot of people who for a sundry of reasons will not want someone like him anywhere near the white house, and after that President Cruz is going to need the full support and backing of every last one of his supporters financially, physically, prayerfully and above all completely.
I don’t think you understand how entrenched the corruptive forces within our government are; it goes way beyond individuals by this point, we are talking about fixed mechanisms in place here, there are entire bureaucratic entities staffed with hundreds and thousands of people that will not just go away, there are huge amounts of money involved as well as the long standing conduits which that money flows through and is received and then there is the sheer inertia of decades and decades of how things get done, how people think, how people get on a ballot and what the populace in general now accepts as normal–corruption is now an institution all its own here and there is an entire industry tending to it and cultivating it on a daily basis. Don’t you get it? This government needs to be forcefully brought back in line and I don’t see anyone so much as willing to lose a few ticks off their 401k much less put their so called freedom and even their very lives on the line here…
Take a good honest look back over the past 60, 70, 80 or so years and look at what the people of this nation have swallowed so far without so much as a whimper, that is the trajectory we are on. People just cannot believe what is being done, even as it happens right in front of us all.
You are correct when you say, in so many words that folks just don’t get how entreached the corruptible powers are now within the government system. Simply voting for an individual such as Ted Cruz, as some are suggesting here on this site, in order to create a magical change with one individual just isn’t going to happen now because the corruption is too vast/absolutely devastating this point. America’s fall is a reminder of the decline of the Roman Empire, but at a much higher, destructive speed. It would take an awakening of huge proportions to turn this thing around. Unfortunately, too many people are sleeping, or just don’t care as long as the freebies keep rolling in.
Linda, it is my belief that the biggest problem here is exactly what you point out.
Too many people simply do not understand what this republic is supposed to be, how it is supposed to function and more importantly why it was designed and intended to exist in such a way.
Too many people have been led by their noses to seek to satisfy only the most fleeting of desires, quell the most baseless of fears and sate the most transient of hunger pangs; desires, fears and pangs all too often instigated, cultivated and cajoled by the very hands pillaging these poor lost souls every errant misstep of their contrived meanderings.
Tyrants and slave masters and abusive souls of all kinds are never satisfied; but their desire to dominate, subjugate and torment is one that only grows the more it is nourished by the misdeeds others allow them to carry out. The longer this nation is allowed to operate in the way that it does the more savage and the more powerful and the more narrow sighted those whose hands operate the organs of power become….until one day, one way or another, such an abomination runs its course to its inevitable conclusion, taking all those with it, either as captives or patrons, into a ruin the likes of which is not easily relieved.
May God help all of us who plead for assistance in these times.
Why don’t you think I understand the corruption in politics? Because I urge voting for a true conservative?
For you, Brian, and for anyone else reading this, let me say that I am not some naive little babe-in-the-woods; I have lived with the disappointment of the Republican-in-name-onlies as long as anyone here; I understand the frustration of dealing with career bureaucrats as well as anyone; I own two corporations and I have to submit to the IRS probably more than anyone here.
And now that the disclaimer has been offered, let me make my real argument –
The liberals have had their way with this once-great nation for too long, and they are succeeding in bringing it down. If we have any hope at all of turning this ship – the USS Politically Correct – around, it is through the vote.
Unfortunately, too many preppers/libertarians believe the lie that the vote is rigged, or their vote is meaningless, or some other conspiracy-theorist nonsense. Meanwhile, the Democrat Party continues to rape America while the libertarians sit smugly at home, satisfied that they aren’t “wasting” their vote.
To you, to them, I say, get your conspiracy-theorist asses off the couch and vote for the most conservative candidate in this election. He might not be perfect, but it will at least slow the fall of America.
And if you don’t have someone to vote FOR, then at least vote AGAINST the Democrat.
In regards to Brian’s sound analysis above and my response to his note, I believe that your come back was over the top. No one has said not to vote. I can’t speak for Brian, but I can tell you that I always vote and never voted for our current POTUS in either terms. I believe that the over all point of Brian’s note was related to the intensity in years of layered corruption (an overwhelming difficulty for a comeback now) which is quite true. Even if you owned a thousand corporations, it doesn’t give you the right to tell others to get their “asses off the couch and vote” in your very brazen assumptions of others on this site. Lighten up.
Yeah, I get what you are saying, and its not that I think you are naive, far from it; its just that from the things I have read you write here it would seem you are not giving a fair accounting of the nature and source of the corruption we are facing.
It is not enough to vote, as you point out yourself, there is no real choice other than half speed or full speed towards tyranny. I would argue that by simply and only voting all you are really accomplishing is to lend your stamp of approval to what has become a totally illegitimate and unconstitutional process of governing.
As I said above, albeit in rather long winded fashion, to simply vote at this point in time is just not going to cut it; we are all going to have to do much more to ensure that our government is brought back within the limits set upon it by our constitution, that the rule of law is restored, due process is practiced and that our God given rights are respected by the government that we indeed consent to be governed by.
I do not pretend to know what exactly should be done and what steps should be taken in what order here, that is something for all of us who wish to seek egress from the growing disaster clearly unfolding in front of us here to discuss, argue and decide. All I can tell you at this point is what I have already said, you are going to have to do much more than just vote. If all you do is vote you will simply watch your candidate either lose or melt into the fabric of the seat he or she comes to occupy; a seat which is no longer held accountable to the high moral standards and lofty goals set for this nation to prosper in pursuit of but set instead to simply serve as a vehicle for some select few to seek to satisfy some of the most base and short sighted of desires that reside latent within us all.
I posted this on Yahoo as there reporter twisted the truth.
I long for the day news reporters care more for there country the babbling the lies there paid to repeat. The MSM has a agenda and we the people are at the core of it. Read how many comments are for keeping guns verses giving them up. Yahoo and MSM your agenda will not work . Give it up already. We will hold them and use them when our government sends Muslims to take them. Reporters grow a set of balls. Refuse to deceive the American people. You will get another job somewhere.
Ted Cruz on the Iran nuclear “deal”:
“If I am elected president, I have pledged in my very first day in office to rip to shreds this catastrophic deal.”
Ted Cruz regarding Israel:
Promising that on his first day in office, “…we will begin the process of moving the American embassy to Jerusalem…”
“I am saddened to see that some here, not everyone, but some here, are so consumed with hate… If you will not stand with Israel and the Jews, then I will not stand with you.” – Cruz before walking off the stage after being booed by a Middle Eastern group for supporting Israel
Ted Cruz on Obamacare:
“I will do everything necessary and anything possible to defund Obamacare.”
” … let’s face it, it was a terror attack carried out by violent Islamic extremists… Not all Muslims are bad, but the population is so big globally that if just 10% were radicalized, it would be 160 or 170 million people. This is the new asymmetrical warfare, and it will increase because conflict in the Middle East is increasing.”
It’s statements like this that have caused me to lose respect for your site Greg and I rarely come here anymore. That is a sad, narrow-minded statement coming from ignorance and prejudice, especially considering San Bernardino was very likely another false flag event (it’s still early so conclusions are tenuous) orchestrated by the US / Israeli gov’t just like all the other previous “terrorist” attacks. Muslims were not involved and sadly I’ve had to face the reality that Muslims are one of the most unfairly persecuted group in the world. This, coming from someone who for a few years after 9/11 believed the official story, I’ve had to completely change my opinion of who is actually behind terrorism and world conflict. Who is behind it all? That group of people you are not even allowed to mention or you are branded a racist. But we can openly talk all about how Muslims are responsible; that’s not racist despite there being no evidence supporting it.
theres plenty of ‘anti… ethnic/religious’ around. I think its reasonable to bring up false flag.. why is it not? He can’t prove it. There are many jews who are very against what Israel has done & promoted in the mid East for decades.. promoting their own interests using brutal means. Ditto the U.S.- I am not anti jewish. I think the Palestinians have been treated very badly. The people of that region have been through hell. I believe theres a broader theme… human.
Greg, I like you more every time you post. I was going to comment but you said everything I would have said.
As a retired veteran, I have over twenty-two years of my life defending our country under my belt. This includes more than two years total underwater. You have the right to speak your mind. This comes with the responsibility to be able to convince me that you are correct.
A supreme God is believed in by all major religions to my knowledge, just in many forms.
And although all major religions believe in a loving God that speaks of peace and commands … “Thou Shall Not Kill” … everyone seems to be merrily running around forming armies to oppose and kill each other in joyful glee for money, power, glory and medals of honor … the only “god” that would choose “these type of people as his own” is that evil snake Satan … who conned Adam and Eve to come over to the “Dark Side” a long time ago … and we the children of that original sin against God … carry on their evil tradition of supporting Satan and the Dark Side by creating perpetual wars … it is as though God Almighty gave us a Commandment that said: “Thou Shall Kill Innocent Women and Children … and we his children dutifully obeyed!
I hear the Muslim community is having a million man march in Washington D.C. proclaiming Islam to be a peaceful religion…………….NOT! Correct me if I am wrong but didn’t I see Muslims dancing in the streets of Palestine, handing out cakes after 911? I am not a politically correct person by any means, but any religion that encourages its youth to strap on bomb vest and blow themselves up in crowded markets has an issue. They can blame the Jews. They can blame the Christians. They can blame daffy duck for all I care, but at the end of the day you still have have to question the sanity of anyone who would participate in a religion like that.
Sometimes suicide bombers have no choice but to participate “because their families are threatened with eradication” if they don’t obey … and they are told to make sure they blow themselves up with some “significant casualty numbers” … for if it was only the “truly crazy people” blowing themselves up in the endless conflicts over the centuries … you would think that by now the world would have become a “less insane” place … but it hasn’t … so it must mean that perfectly sane people are blowing themselves up to save the lives of threatened family members!
Paul It is true some get under loads of pressure to commit terror.
Most of them are indoctrinated at a young age. The Quran teaches murder of non believers is a way to Ali. This religion should be called what it is/ Occult. Message from Satin himself.
The Gun ban is a distraction from my stated fact.
I wouldn’t go so far as to call IT a religion. Islam is purely a political machine/belief system with the main focused goal of conquering the infidel/unbeliever in order to establish dominance/rule. Research an English version of the Qur’an and you’ll discover dozens of OPEN ENDED verses that describe how the followers of Allah are suppose to slaughter the unbelievers (quite appalling). In their supplemental book the Hadith, it’s permissible to kill women and children in order to further their cause for seeking pure dominance. ISLAM has no place in modern society because at its roots, this ideology has ZERO tolerance for unbelievers. I submit that Muslims who refer to themselves as MODERATES are not reading the Quran or the Hadith in their entirety. As it has been said before, if MUHAMMAD were alive today he would be considered a RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORIST, and so how can we call this a religion? Until the world comes to terms with these truths (halt the political correctness) we’re all in a heap of trouble.
OK, lets call it Satanic.
Muslims are the most maligned people in the world and they haven’t done anything to deserve it? You must also believe that the activities of Isis is also a false flag. What I would like to know is, when did our mental institutions start allowing patients access to computers? Keep up with your therapy, it seems to be working.
I would argue about the context of the type of false flag and the evidence, questions, citizen monitored real time information, main stream media reported information, and government reaction.
First, we can all agree that information disseminated by both the government and MSM is always subject to scrutiny. We know that economic information is twisted to fit an agenda and is sometimes blatant lying. We know that the federal government has been involved in false flag operations on large scale operations in such manner as to drive us into world war before. We know that high level deep dark state operatives participate in all kinds of operations where innocent people get killed and are considered collateral damage.
I was at home watching television on December 2nd when NBC interrupted regular programming with breaking news from San Bernie. The very initial report was “3 white males” in ski masks with “AK-type” long rifles dressed in tactical black clothing. I questioned the 3 white male part by virtue of the ski mask but certainly it was possible. With a ski mask you may be able to distinguish between Asian, black, and other. Male characteristics may or may not be differentiated.
A majority of americans (>50%) can probably tell the difference between an “AK-type” versus other firearms since we constantly see middle eastern footage with ISIS jihadists carrying AK type weapons during almost all video tape. I suspect that the initial reports of “AK” carrying atackers was a correct description as opposed to the “M4″ weapons that were presented as the weapons of choice. Autopsy results should be released or other evidence that supports the use of ” M4″ weaponry.
Since this was a large place and the conference room was the targeted location, there should be ample eyewitness and video footage of the attackers entering the area, moving to target, and leaving the area. The question is how do 2-3 attackers exit the parking lot, enter and move to the target area, hit the target, and exit without being seen by many witnesses. No real witnesses have materialized nor has there been any video released to confirm or deny how many attackers were involved. In the Charleston shooting, there was immediate videotape released that showed the attacker entering through the door of the church and in other attacks we have seen video evidence of similar attacks. In this case where there would expected video evidence, we get none. I would say that this attack in California was a well planned/ well executed military/paramilitary (.gov) operation. It would require detailed entrance/exit planning, knowledge of the target, knowledge of weapons, and coordination. Perhaps even advanced recon of the target area. I would suspect that a place of this size had security staffing most likely unarmed. Where were these people?
We know that the FBI has been involved in counterintelligence operations and has infiltrated suspected cells in the homeland. After watching the initial press conferences on 12/2, I suspect that the FBI were aware of the two designated suspects and had perhaps already knew these two. I believe that these two jihadi wanna bes were patsy set ups. The FBI perhaps had these two under surveillance and conveniently had them killed in a shoot-out before any information could be released. I am not convinced that these two with “ISIS connections” did the attack. The number does not fit the initial reports, the weapon type does not fit, and they don’t fit the crime. Perhaps three men associated with them did the attack or perhaps the attack was done by a black ops .gov cell run by government contractors or even criminal gangsters affiliated with cartels/mafia types/foreign agents/military. These are the types that we are potentially dealing with. Favors could be exchanged between high level criminal types in exchange for such attacks.
Another interesting angle to this is allowing the MSM press into the apartment of the two dead suspects. This is unheard of in the past history of crimes such as this. The notice of items taken from the apartment happened to be on the table provided kindly by the FBI. It stinks to me.
Also of note is the quick push to more gun control. The president is supposed to give a speech tonight from the oval office. This is not a gun control issue if there is a link to terrorism. It is an issue to control the border and immigration. If anything, it demonstrates that proper vetting of foreign nationals from Islamic countries is faulty.
The third suspect that was supposedly captured (and there was videotape out there) has somehow disappeared from MSM. There was a third suspect that fled from the SUV that was chased down in the neighborhood and was captured. Local chatter on police scanner was initially released through social media (twitter/facebook) that confirmed that police were in pursuit of a third suspect.
We don’t trust MSM when it comes to financial information. Why should we trust them in this narrative on the attack?
The real story is the support provided by Turkey to IS oil operations with approval by the Obama administration. That hard video evidence was released by Russia on the day of the attack. San Bernie was a planned diversion operation to distract from the real news information of the day/week/month. The run up to WW III is the real story.
I think this is an excellent post that demands main street’s attention. I would have to agree that there are enough anomalies in the narrative put forward by the authorities, and in concert with the lame stream media, that each and every one of us should be highly suspicious of yet another tragic event.
Obamacare was designed to fail in order to have the government’s “solution” to the failure put into effect. That “solution” being a single payer fully socialized medical system based on the Canadian model. Hospitals would be nationalized,doctors would become government employees and the whole system would be controlled by the central government. Sort of a VA System for all Americans. Of course there would be “opt out” clauses for affluent Americans where private clinics and doctors would be “permitted.” In the end,for the rest of us,our taxes would be much higher,our waiting times for service would greatly increase and grandma and grandpa would simply be sent home to die.
If the Congress is forced to eliminate Ocare, they will not give up their control. As you say, they will institute some system whereby they maintain control from DC. Same as getting rid of the Dept. of Education…….Trump says that he will eliminate that department………what do you want to bet that they will continue collecting the taxes and dole it back to the states…….thereby maintaining their control. Why does everything have to go thru D.C.? How about I pay my taxes to the state in which I reside, thereby giving ME more control via my local vote. I can face off with a local politician a hell of a lot easier than some pol in Washington!
I agree Calgirl. I see DC as a huge sinkhole, or blackhole, that sucks in money and people and doesn’t let go.
That’s right, and so how does one fix DC in all these multiple layers of corruption? Is it even possible now?
Ted Cruz on the national debt:
“Our national debt exceeds the size of our entire economy, threatening future generations. And, in the face of these grave economic challenges, Washington, DC, is agonizing over a 2.4 percent cut. We need to cut a lot more than 2.4 percent.”
Let me guess. You’re a Ted Cruz supporter?
I’m a conservative. Ted Cruz is the most conservative candidate..
I suggest we send Ted on a cruse to Antarctica so he can see with his own eyes the Ice Sheet is growing “larger” … and then when he gets back schedule a debate between him and Al Gore on national TV … to discuss the “climate change” he witnessed occurring with his very own eyes!
It’s good to dream……. but the nightmare will be no more elections.
Great wrap-up Greg. It was evident last week that the shoot-down was about protecting Turkey’s/Erdogan’s oil interests inside Syria. Looks like everyone except Presidents O and Erdogan knows it now. Erdogan is asking to see some proof from the Russians. Meanwhile the Russians are hanging Air-Air missiles on their jets, something they didn’t need to do until Turkey shot down the SU-24. Rep Tulsi Gabbard ((D-HI) is right to be concerned.
As to your point about Obamacare being the “biggest policy lie in history” — I would put Global Warming above O’care on the biggest policy lies scale, but that’s just an opinion. When GW turns into a definite cooling trend and there’s no hydrocarbons to burn because we cratered those industries, the biggest lie will have done its damage. Scientists are now looking at a potential Maunder Minimum type situation from 2030-2040.
Looking forward to Gerald Celente on Sunday.
Edit: double tapped the link — http://www.express.co.uk/news/science/616937/GLOBAL-COOLING-Decade-long-ice-age-predicted-as-sun-hibernates
Gerald Celente on Sunday will once again expose the truth for us … and that is … that War is the direct result of a lack of negotiating skills … and where that “lack of skills” is most likely feigned … in order to achieve some very profitable hidden agenda … on the dead bodies of millions of innocent people.

@allen ols – You are impressed that Pat Robertson has bought Chinese stocks? Amazing that a (so called) Christian would invest in China. He must not know what the Chinese government does to its citizens. Buy hey, I guess a guy who used money, intended for refugees in Africa, for his own diamond-mining venture is open to climbing into bed with just about anyone – http://www.nytimes.com/1997/04/28/us/pat-robertson-s-aid-sent-to-mines-pilot-says.html
And UPS give you healthcare for “free”? Are you kidding me? Nothing is free. Someone has to pay for it. In your case those that use UPS pay for you, your wife and several children. It’s a good gig if you can get it but nothing is free in this world. When someone says something like that it just validates what I have long known, that Americans don’t have even a basic grasp of economics.
I don’t watch tv, J c davis and I watch the news he gives, and I have seen him only 3 times at J C’s garage. Next, I assumed everyone knew what I ment about the ups insurance, my point is, I don’t pay premiums and deductibles like so many in obma care. Next, Jesus said two men were praying on a street corner, and one prayed, ” I thank God I am not like all these sinners/hypocrites, the second one prayed “OH LORD be merciful to me a sinner.
Ted Cruz on Washington politics and the establishment Republican Party:
“Part of what’s so problematic with Washington is how many Republicans want a show vote to pretend to their constituents they’re fighting for what they say they’re fighting for, rather than actually fighting for it and actually winning. In both parties, you’ve got entrenched politicians who have barely veiled contempt for the American people. They think their voters are gullible rubes – and you give them a little ‘show vote,’ you tell them, ‘Hey, I’m totally with you,’ then they go to Washington and they don’t actually do what they say.”
I am truthfully ashamed of our leaders. I have been for decades now. They respond to National and World events like a bunch of rank amateurs (which they are). Their goals (both here and abroad) are substandard, even childish. They are a bunch of psychopathic buffoons, who have lost touch with reality, and, as a result, they’re being outclassed, on every level, by their counterparts on the opposite side of the table. Their hubris is pathetic, disturbing, and unfounded. Everything our leader’s become involved with turns to crap (King Midas with a twist). Invariably, the unintended consequences of their military and political actions to solve specific problems turn out to be considerably more perilous than the original situation ever was (can you spell ISIS?). Their inability to accept the blame for their mistakes and lapses of good judgment always results in a barrage of unbelievable lies (The problems in the Middle East are the result of Global Warming) on top of more lies (The burning of the embassy in Benghazi was the result of a Youtube video). The total number of lies, deceit, and misdirection told by just the Obama administration would fill volumes.
What did we, the citizens of this nation, do to deserve this, and why are we being lead by a small, but growing, army of always egotistical, mostly deceptive, sometimes corrupt, and (when it comes to real leadership) inept clowns? The answer, of course, is easy: we voted for them. Like Pogo says, we have met the enemy, and he is (or they are) US. If our leaders finally manage to take us to war, or to ruin the economy (the two are not necessarily mutually exclusive) , then we’ve nobody to blame but ourselves.
I too am ashamed of the leaders in my country and much of the West as they are little more than lapdogs and sychophantic accomplices to Washington and TPTB.
If the below report has any truth to it, then the US disastrous foreign policy you describe marches on. Tragically the atrocities and the blunders are escalating and seem to be occurring now with such regularity that most of us can’t keep pace anymore. My head is spinning just thinking about a few of these atrocities Washington has contrived and underwritten in 2015 alone.
Ted Cruz on terrorism:
“Look, it’s not our job to be social workers in Iraq and put them all on expanded Medicaid. It is our job to kill terrorists who have declared war on America and who have demonstrated the intention and capability to murder innocent Americans.”
I just learned that the female that participated in the mass killing in San Bernardino California has pledged her life to the head of ISIS. That in itself is evident that our leaders don’t have a clue about anything. Sure, lets bring more refugees into the US without vetting them, they’re mostly women and children after all. I heard a report stating that it would be cheaper for the US to house and feed them somewhere in the Middle East than to bring them into this country. By the way, all the electronic surveillance by the NSA failed to identify these two terrorists (and, yes, that is what they were). Of course, the apparatchiks in the Obama administration, including the big buffoon himself, will downplay the terrorist aspect, other than to say something inane, like how this could have been prevented if the planet wasn’t overheating.
Spanky … perhaps the stringent vetting of people from the middle east is simply “a useless exercise” … because “absolutely normal, non-criminal and non-terrorist people” can be “forced to give their lives” in the service of evil terrorists located in a foreign land … in order to save the lives of their families and relatives!
Please read this column by Chris Martensen.
Top notch article
Murder And Mayhem In The Middle East
Why it matters to those living in the West
Then read this: http://russia-insider.com/en/politics/rep-dana-rohrabacher-if-being-nato-means-protecting-erdogan-either-he-shouldnt-be-nato-or
WE, the US along with some obedient followers, caused all this mayhem in the ME.
All of these displaced peoples are the sum of what our politicians and the military have done. They promise us “freebies” and cry for the poor people we have destroyed, and the takers amongst us vote for them…….and then all of us are faced with the outcome. They lie to gain support for their mayhem, bomb the hell out of any country/leader which opposes their hegemony , and then appeal to our hearts to fix the damage they caused. Then these jekylls retire on a handsome pension to their mansions which many of them got thru insider trading, and we struggle to pay the bill.
They want our guns while they are protected for life by the Secret Service. Some of those who have not prepared will use violence to get food and drink when this fraud riddled gig collapses and we will need our guns for protection of ourselves and families.
Meanwhile they will be safe in the bunkers we provided for them via taxes collected by threat of prosecution. I don’t understand how they can live with what they have done.
America, by its sanctions, caused the death of about 500,000 people in Iraq – did you even know that? Then, in 2003, based on LIES that Iraq had something to do with 9/11 and that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, America invaded Iraq, causing further death and destruction. You have nerve talking about ‘unwarranted’ blowback by Muslims. Gad, it’s hard to decide whether you’re absolutely brainwashed or absolutely analytically defunct.
Greg Your site is great revealing what the MSM won’t talk about and you daily stick your neck out. I love you for that…. But in the end it’s all about the truth that I hope we all seek.
My view is this is all about good vs evil. God vs Satan. In my book these Muslim extremists are pure evil. But I think we err not acknowledging the evil present in the Western leaders. This includes the US and Israel. Israel will always be God’s people but there are some running the country that are as evil as the one’s running our country. We are (at least used to be) a Christian country but now we are run by some very evil people.
If we’re all in this together seeking truth then we have to acknowledge we are anything but guiltless. I would love to spend my days waving the flag (as I love my country) but I continue to find evil in the highest places.
I’ve stated some of those evils many times so there’s no point laying it on. What I haven’t done is expose the truth about what Israel has done. I don’t out of respect for my God. Like criticizing a mother’s child, a losing proposition. Suffice to say they are anything but guiltless. The latest is the revelation that they are the one’s (with full knowledge you can bet) excepting and profiting from the flow of ISIS oil thru Turkey. So if they will do that you can imagine they would not stop at anything.
Just something to contemplate if we are all really seeking the truth and not just listening to whatever agrees with our views. God Bless
Before you discard my entire post because I believe much of ISIS oil flows thru Israel and is sent to Europe for profit (everybody looks the other way), here’s a map describing the flow of oil from Iraq. Is it 100% proof, of course not. Does anyone believe they don’t know the origin of the oil ? Just seeking the truth Greg. Nothing more. Nothing less. [ http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user92183/imageroot/2015/11/RaqqaRockefeller.png ]
In real life its called ‘blow back’…. we go over there start horrific wars
murder 500,000 children in Irag… take out leaders and this is the result.
They didn’t appreciate our terrorism either…still don’t.
You absolutely nailed it in two short sentences!
Yet most of the half-witted western leaders can’t or won’t grasp this simple truth.
Ted Cruz on ISIS:
“If I am elected president, we will utterly destroy ISIS. We won’t weaken them. We won’t degrade them. We will utterly destroy them. We will carpet bomb them into oblivion. We will arm the Kurds. We will do everything necessary so that every militant on the face of the earth will know if you go and join ISIS, if you wage jihad and declare war on America, you are signing your death warrant.”
Market Update by Morris Hubbartt … gold and silver still very undervalued by people in general … US dollar index back under 100 … http://www.superforcesignals.com/video/2015dec3stockbond/2015dec3stockbond.html
What is a bit surprising is that as the Dow and bonds look ready to crash … commodities seem ready to rise … along with gold and silver … http://www.superforcesignals.com/video/2015dec3goldcrb/2015dec3goldcrb.html … now one would think that with the economy “so bad” commodities would have “no reason to rise” (unless there was underlying inflation being generated by massive Fed printing of fiat to bail out derivative losses) … the Fed being forced to raise rates to combat inflation of the money supply they had to do to save the banks … will hurt bonds … but the stock market should hold up (once monetary inflation becomes more clearly evident).
Calgirl, you got that right! The US lost its soul a longtime back ….growing up in Canada i wondered about the hubris of American exceptionalism . There is an ancient saying, “Who the gods would humble, they first make proud.”
…. and sure as god made little green apples, the US has had its time of chest thumping.
As an close neighbor, i wondered why the richest most powerful nation could not, would not see to the health of its own people. There was plenty of money for war, bribes and the insiders ….
I think you as a people closed your eyes to the real world, and now the real world has slapped you in the head and you are beginning to wake up to find your industry has been shipped off , your treasury is empty, fraud and greed rampant in gov and finance….much of the world fears you, and there are people who hate you so much they will blow themselves up for the satisfaction of taking some of you with them.
I do not hold Canada up as a glowing example of how the US should be …we have our crooks and weak leaders, and we too have been fed the fantasy of Hollywood and Disneyland….perhaps our role as Barney Fife to the US as Andy Griffith tempered our smugness, eh?
There is a reckoning in which all debts are paid, all lies made clear, and Canada will share in the bonfire ….
The last act of American Exceptionalism is in play: The average US citizen fears his government and its myriad agencies , those in power are gutting the country, and even if a great leader could arise out of the people, there is nothing left with which to rebuild.
As a youth, i remember seeing a photo of post war Germany. The photo showed a German going through the rubble of his home, picking out good bricks and stacking them on the side. He was beginning to rebuild. I suggest we in the west consider doing the same.
Greg,look foreword to your news updates.Good info that I pass along to others.Keep up the good work!Regards
No PC for terrorism.
Wow, can you image something like this at the Kennedy Center in DC? NOT!
By the way, no man will ever force me to wear a hijab, niqab, or a burka. I plan to arm myself, carry my firearm at all times (we can now open & conceal carry in Texas) and if I am present during some kind of attack, I plan to blow their f***king balls off. And I will enjoy it, too. And if you men out there had cohones, as we say in Texas, you will be doing the same.
Good for you!
Preparing the public for a moral war against the fascist neocons? … looks like it!
I’m still waiting for Muslim leadership to express outrage about the violence perpetrated by “radicalized” Muslims, and put action behind their words. Until and unless we see this, I think we’re better off painting with a broad brush.
Haha Greg, your assessment of the Iran deal was a good one, you just forgot to add that besides being validated by a few signatures a deal needs to be upheld and honored by parties capable of holding to their word no matter what.
There is nobody at that table or lurking anywhere around the vicinity of that table, hammering out some so called deal, even remotely capable of showing even a spare glimmer of honor, decency, integrity or honesty….there will be no deal because there is nobody involved in possession of the ability to make a deal.
No, instead what we will witness is a bunch of misguided, self serving, moronic boobs and buffoons chasing down their own small minded, fractious agendas under the thinly veiled and pathetically porous pretense of a reasonable endeavor to secure what approximates the common good; with all of us left to shoulder the burden and pay the cost of such highly vaunted efforts.
What a joke, its just sick and to borrow a term from my sister in law, “They can all f#@# off and jolly rot.”
Sometimes a deal can be made with a handshake … as long as the two sides are “honorable” they really don’t have to sign anything on paper … now if Satan shakes on a deal with the Great Devil … it just “might hold” … as they are “birds of a feather” … and understand one another very well!
Nice analysis. How DO you negotiate with people who allow the funding of ISIS while deceiving the people you purportedly represent into going into combat against them. These people, and there are thousands of them, make a living siphoning dollars off the masses who believe in “government” and are too busy taking care of themselves and the people they know to pay attention to these rats and snakes who have come to power in the federal government.
“In this age, in this country, public sentiment is everything. With it, nothing can fail; against it, nothing can succeed. Whoever molds public sentiment goes deeper than he who enacts statutes, or pronounces judicial decisions.”
Great perspective and analysis as always Greg. It is refreshing to hear truthful reporting of events in these tumultous times in which we find ourselves. Keep up the good work!
Some still love liberty. William Barret Travis’ letter returns to the Alamo.
As one of the posters commented…
He wished the reporters would stop lying and being polically correct and “grow a pair”
Greg Hunter still has a pair.
Thanks for your reports Greg.
Get some antibiotic eye drops.
I would trust putting a silver dollar on that eye (or perhaps colloidal silver eye drops) rather then an antibiotic!
Perhaps you should market your ideas. Stay away from the tree shredders.
America is bleeding out. Ultimately it was not liberals who destroyed this country, but rather blood-thirsty Neocons. They were the useful idiots doing the bidding of evil NOW globalists. War war war. Its purposes are two-fold. First to destroy liberties of free citizens and force them into defenseless subjects. Secondly to bring world wrath upon the US homeland.
The so called ‘War on Terror’ is by definition a ‘war’ than can never be won. But it serves both purposes. Decades of unjust, unconstitutional US-led wars in the Middle East have directly killed approximately 1.5 million civilians and several million more indirectly. At least 20 million more have been displaced from their homes. And we are shocked that survivors of these wars are coming to retaliate against us on US soil? Would you want justice for the evil murdering of your fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, aunts, and uncles?
America must be taken down to Third World status before an evil NWO can ‘save us’. That is exactly what is happening. Look for more ‘San Bernardinos’. We are reaping what we sowed.
For decades I personally fought for constitutional government. Now I don’t even have a dog in the fight. I take heart in knowing that Christ changed everything. There is no more Jew and Gentile. We are all one in Christ. Christ also abolished all preference or distinction by nation. No nation is a favored nation by God All nations became one in Christ. That is good enough for me.
Just a note to say how much I appreciate your commentaries and the wide range of guests that you have on regularly. I think sites such as yours are very important so that a person can get reasoned alternate views than those presented by mainstream corporate media. As just an ordinary person it is difficult to try to distinguish between truth, lies, propaganda and manipulation. In listening to many points of view brings balance (in my humble opinion) . I pray that some peaceful resolution can be found in the Middle East and the multitude of interest groups can be figured out. I support Gerald Celante’s ‘Occupy Peace’ because war has never solved anything. Peter Schiff also gives logical arguments concerning the economy. There are many other opinions and voices out there that need to be heard as well and I find your posts are the source for these voices. Please keep up the good work – it is important work !
My point exactly:
US Congressman: ‘Either Erdogan Shouldn’t Be in NATO or We Shouldn’t’
Rep. Rohrabacher is blasting US backing of Turkey over Russia
“Russia should be applauded. Instead, it is being castigated for doing what our government is unwilling to do to confront the terrorist offensive now butchering innocent human beings from Africa, to the Middle East, to the streets of Paris.
If being in NATO means protecting Erdogan in this situation, either he shouldn’t be in NATO or we shouldn’t.”
Well, here we go again. The odor of cordite was still thick in the air and the WH was out hitting the airwaves with their plea for “Common Sense” gun regulations. Instead of just sitting there, glassy eyed, reporters should ask the president what exactly are these “common sense” regulations. Because, California already has some, if not the most, strictest gun regulations in the country, as does Illinois by the way. Up until a few years ago, Chicago banned handguns, (by anybody but criminals). Just kidding, it only appeared that way because the only ones obeying that law were the law abiding citizens. As anyone can attest, Chicago was/is a war zone. So, other than confiscation, I can’t think of any other measures that he thinks are needed. As fast as Barry was on television with his plea, the officials were equally as slow coming out with any meaningful information about the event. While the MSM were standing, eagerly awaiting some facts, the officials were holding back the wheat, while doling out the chaff to these lap dogs. In the past, investigators were tripping over themselves to get to the podium, when the shooter was of a different ethnicity and could possibly be tied to the GOP, Tea Party or some other right wing group. This however, was different and they had to tread very carefully before giving away anything. They were trying, very hard, to come up with any motive, other than terrorism. Rudy Guilliani said it best, and I concur, anybody who thinks this was anything other than terrorism is a Moron. Since the climate summit just ended, maybe the Democrats can tie the shooting to the recent drought. It’s not beneath them.
For the Democrats to tie the Farook shooting to the recent drought … they would have to show he was incensed over the policies of his workplace with regard to water conservation … remember it was crazy environmental policy for the State of California to dump 5 years worth of water reserves into the Pacific Ocean … to save “a sardine” that was not even on the endangered species list … now that might get some people mad!
Don’t kid yourself Greg, the market WILL see a new high. TPTB will see to it, as the dollar crashes and we headed into the toilet.
Thanks, Matilda. I’m with you!
Your welcome Grafique. I enjoy your insightful comments as well, along with all the other comments here, good and bad, mostly good of course! Where else can the elites and us peons rub thoughts together. Like Yakov Smirnoff used to say, “what ah country,” we can say, “USAWatchdog, what a website!”

“Losing your life is not the worst thing that can happen. The worst thing is to lose your reason for living.”
― Jo Nesbø
It seems our system no longer produces goods. Our system produces and readily transmits despair, as if a virus. And then misnames those stricken with that disease “home grown terrorists”.
Does it benefit us to cure the underlying virus or do we bother treating the symptoms of disease? Do we trade our freedoms/liberties for a misguiding promise of security from the powers that should not be?
Keep Hoping for Change from the absolutely corrupted OR just be the light in the darkness to those of good will.
GREG, STICK WITH THE LIKES OF KARL DUNNINGER AND YOUR OWN GOD GIVEN INTELLECT AND YOU WILL GO FARTHER AND HIGHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m just glad to meet a current events blogger who isn’t thrilled at my country going down. Hopefully the US can experience correction and cleaning up without a collapse.
The vilification of Washington gets confused with the citizenry….just as the fighting over Israeli politics has blended with anti-semitism. Who’s pushing all that?
…and why is there nothing about the little folks? How about the old black lady I see at the credit union, waiting for her SS check to pay her rent? How does she fit into all the blogs?
In WWI there were 2 Irish brothers who grew so very weary of political harangues and hatred for England and music about the troubles in the local pub they walked off together and joined the British Army. Sometimes I know exactly how they felt.
One died, the other came home…I wonder what he did then?
Islamic migrants at Macedonian border hold up a sign reading, “OPEN OR DIE”.
Greg, I like you better in your farm clothes.
The global warming / climate change issue is complicated and confusing. As a Maine Biologist/Oceanographer I can state with absolute conviction that sea level is rising measureably. I can only think of 3 reasons for this. First, undersea volcanic activity which likely has a minimal impact, land based ice melt due to thermodynamic equilibrium and ocean water expansion due to thermodynamic equilibrium……these last two reasons for sea level rising would seem to have to be for SOMETHING getting warmer. What is causing that to occur. I’m not going to suggest I know but I would suggest paying more attention to physics and earth science than a cadre of Bloods and Crips otherwise known as Democrats and Republicans.
Jedward … I fight against the global warming crowd because I know they are simply using “climate change” as an excuse to raise our taxes and rake in more free money for themselves … I’ve been a round long enough to know that the sun “is shining more intensely now” … then when I was a kid … so the oceans can be getting warmer (expanding) and rising sea levels to some extent … and the warm ocean water can be putting more moisture in the air that is now dropping as snow on Antarctica increasing the size of the ice cap … but lets consider these explanations “pure speculation and poppycock” … because the global warming crowd is going around illegally “fudging” Earths temperature measurements … to falsely prove their case … illegally justifying “a global tax” on all citizens of the world for private gain is not ethical or moral!
I’m almost 60 now and always respected the Nobel Prize process up to them giving it to Obama. Now with this talk of Kerry receiving the price I have no respect or regard for the Nobel awards. Sad what should be an honored institution with traditionally thorough and introspectively deep examinations of a candidates worthiness, has become more fodder for supermarket rags. What a downer!

You and I are part of the Last Generation which will see the return of Christ!
I totally agree with you. Nobel Peace Price was also given to the man who invented prefrontal lobotomy. How sick is that? Not to mention Henry Kissinger.
Another comment (I should probably shut my dumb mouth, lol). I’M hearing from multiple sources that Russia apparently has an electronic warfare system capable of completely deactivating our electronic warfare capability and it has been used in the Black Sea on the USS Donald Cook and twice so far in Syria. The shooting down of the Russian fighter may be an attempt to force the Russians to use this capability more, thus affording our side to study this capability. I’m concerned about our Russia and China baiting. Do we really think we can militarily defeat either let alone both. This is NOT a good plan.
There is really not much the West can do to counter Russia’s electronic jamming system “if” the Russian’s have a “back door” into all our electronic chips … it will take years to redesign and replace all the electronic circuitry, components and computer chips in every one of our military weapon systems … so forcing the Russians to use their jamming system may not do them much good and the Russian’s probably know it!
Will this be “a wake-up call” to the defense/electronics industry to bring those high paying computer programming and electronics jobs (they out-sourced to foreign lands) back home to “loyal American’s” who deeply care about their country?
If we just stopped promoting war it wouldn’t be a problem. I’m sure you know Paul, that’s why we’re broke.
Well, Greg, you sure did not leave anything out except good news which is gasoline is 1.79 a gallon and heading down. Only problem is because of Obamacare(less) we all can’t afford to go anywhere. Who had an extra 5000 around just for their deductible? If you listen to the wrapup you just did, it is dire. It’s a zoo, a circus of twirling plates, magic acts, jugling balls, stuffing clowns into tiny cars, cutting people in half with a mirage of tricks, and most importantly, the fat lady is warming up and is getting ready to sing. She knows “rates on the rise” is not a tune that anyone wants to hear but she is going to sing it anyway.. 2016 will be a year to remember. The WNW just sums it all up. Thank you for all you do.
It all started when the politicians started spending money for all the ever expanding programs. And what I mean by that is welfare for the very rich and the very poor and all you got was more of both. The more you give them, the more they want.
They said we’ll grow are way out of it but all we did was take all the surplus out of the social security fund and replacing it with I.O.U.’s or in other words worthless Government bonds.
Greg, your work/sources and other analysis point to major problems being realized (they’ve been perculating in the shadows for a while but will start to be comprehended) starting in January.
I’ve been telling the clueless postal workers this and still get the glazed look. But… the majority of the customers (70-80%) are somewhat-to-fully aware of the dire straits we are in. I even had 1 declare we all need to buy more ammo. Postal pkg business is only slightly more than normal and Christmas stamp sales are strong but its mainly the babyboomers and older who are buying those stamps. (This seems to reflect the demographics re: an increase in the economy in Colo Spgs due to an increase in retirees moving here) I am waiting to see what happens over the next 2 weeks to postal business.
Thank you for your hard, honest work. This world needs Truth. I am looking forward to your interview with Mr. Celente. Hope you eye clears up and you have a good week.
The middle-east has devolved into a mess, and Turkey has gotten itself caught up in the cross fire. There are allegedly those in Turkey benefiting from the human tragedy taking place in Syria, but Turkey (the middle-man) is not the only nation state acting alone in this. To blame Turkey only is totally disingenuous and hypocritical. Despite this, the Turkish economy is bearing the costs of taking in over 2.5 million refugees and has lost tremendous economic opportunities due to the ongoing wars in Syria, Libya, and Iraq. As a NATO member, Turkey has opened all its air bases to the US led coalition to conduct anti- terrorist operations. Once again, a few benefit while the masses suffer.
The Russians have posted satellite and drone images of “8,000” oil tanker trucks transporting millions of barrels of oil to Turkey from Syria and Iraq. The people of Turkey may not be benefiting by this stolen oil, but certainly IS is! It appears that the U.S. in complicit in this theft also…….see video of Russian news conference…….midway thru this video are pictures of thousands of oil tankers traveling to and fro to refineries and ships. https://www.rt.com/news/324810-iran-proof-isis-oil-turkey/ It appears that NATO and the US have been caught with their pants down……
Our president should deliver a speech to America following the outline of Putin’s address to his nation……. posted on 12-3
Hello Greg: Your summary of this week most important news is a good as the previous ones. Correct me if I am wrong, but I think that you accidentally missed to mention that we have now Chines currency as the new reserve currency in our world, which until now enjoyed the American dollar, Japanese yen and European euro only. Will this change affect the current status of international money/commodities trade and, if yes, to what extent an ordinary American will feel it on its pocket?
Kerry et al: Another WWII piece and the same woman singing who shows in every fiber of her being that you can be tough and gorgeous all in one package. The various hordes down through the centuries never watered down Russian womanhood.
Another great week of work. The Denninger interview was fantastic. I need to listen to it again to catch all of his thoughts. I recently had an eye infection and treated it with colloidal silver drops. Cleared it up in no time. Thank you for your efforts. Take care.
Jazzy, Bluesy war.
You forgot to mention that the ISIS stollen oil is shipped via Turkey to your friends in Israel. Just an oversight I’m sure.
That is completely untrue and, frankly, a rather puerile conclusion. I don’t hate anybody because of their creed or colour or whatever. I do have issues with the hypocrisy of the Israeli State and its insincerity in respect of a two State solution to the Palestinian issue. The Israeli State continues to act in contravention of Inetrnational law and several UN resolutions. Whne Israel should, under International law, be serving as the conservator of occupied territories, it continues to build settlements on occupied land in what amounts to a land grab.
Since you puport to be objective in your analysis of events, you will, I am sure, understand the difference between bieng anti-semitic and anti-Israeli State policy. Thanks also for your concern about my friends but they do already know my views and, in fact, most of them agree with my views expressed as above, including my US friends.
Incidentally, there is a lot of evidence to support the statement that the stollen ISIS oil is being shipped from Turkey to Israel, as I am sure that you will, in the interests of objectivity, acknowledge in due course.
Yes, of course Israel has a right to exist and, yes the PA and Hamas should renounce their position wrt Israel. BUT that doesn’t alter the fact that Israel is behaving entirely irresponsibly and in contravention of both International law AND several UN resolutions in biulding settlements on occupied territories? In fact, the land grab by Israel tends to exacerbate the intransigent position of the Palestinians, amongst other matters. It doesn’t matter who started the dispute(s), both sides must change their positions if a lasting solution is ever to be found.
On your other point, when I set up my account, I simply followed the lead of ALL the other posters. If you would like to review this thread, you will find that you are ONLY person using his/her full name to post?
It’s just a difference of opinion, the same difference you had with Catherine Austin Fitts about Israeli State policies. Differences of opinion can be managed respectfully in a free society and I do respect your opinions and enjoy your work. But I don’t think that accusing someone of being a bigot without any evidence to support such a statement represents a valid part of such respectful disagreement.
Correct, I am not a troll and I will continue to enjoy listening to your work. The only issue that I have, as indeed with CAF and now DT is on Israeli State policies.
Israel has a right to exist, but not in otal disregard of the cost of the way in which they freely choose to do so.
Israel would do well to consider the words of Jesus Christ as expressed in Luke 12:58. Israel is not accountable to me or you, but you can bet your bottom dollar Greg that they are accountable to the god that they indeed stand to represent and declare to follow…and that God is just as demanding as He is forgiving.
Luke 12:58 Greg.
Incidentally, Donald Trump now appears to be adopting the same position on the Palestinian issue. So, using your “logic”, that makes him a hater of Jews also?
News just in … even more Russian “payback” for the Turkey’s that thought they could tangle with a Bear … Russia and Syria will be closing off and sealing the boarder with Turkey … so much for the profitable little racket Turkey’s President had going with ISIS … and so much for the cash ISIS was making selling Syrian oil to Turkey to fund their war efforts!
What I don’t understand is why Greg gets in such a huff about ISIS and how it “cuts off people’s heads”.
Greg……when will you face up to the reality of what ISIS actually is: a CIA created and funded PROXY ARMY used as a tool to crystalize United States foreign policy in the Middle East.
Mate……ISIS is the USA’s Frankenstein. That’s it.
Sadly, a big Karma Sandwich is about to avalanche upon the good people of the USA.
Remebember your words: “God’s in charge”.
Very true, and when God decides enough is enough, I think you”ll find it is America that gets it’s arse smacked the hardest, given the untold carnage it renders upon innocent humans right across the globe, year after year, while at the same time boasting of freedom and justice.
That said……I enjoy your site and wish nothing but health, happiness and peace to you and yours.
When I look at the following graph … I see a Shemitah “buying” opportunity … where the next recession should occur at or near the next Shemitah in 2021 … and therefore selling of the positions being accumulated now should be done on or around 2020 … http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user5/imageroot/2015/11/20151203_FacYoY.jpg
Well … well … well … finally millions of people “outraged against the immoral conduct of Monsanto” are joining forces with dozens of global food, farming and environmental justice groups who have just announced that they will be putting Monsanto on trial for Crimes against Nature and Humanity … the world is currently eating denutrified, poisoned “food” forced upon us by a criminal cartel … says Russia … US agribusiness is destroying the world’s soils with petrochemical-monocrop agriculture and creating GMO’s destroying the health of millions and the fertility of the land … just a handful of criminals have destroyed indigenous agriculture across the planet Putin said … while addressing the Russian parliament … and that Russia will become the world’s largest supplier of ecologically clean and high-quality organic food … becoming completely self-sufficient in healthy organic food production by 2020.
Paul…I’m amazed that this isn’t the biggest story in the world.
The crimes of Monsanto and what GMOS and PESTICIDES have done to our health is horrific.
Forget about so called “global warming”
This is a very serious issue .
Most all our politicians have been bought off by Monsanto. Obama and Hillary at the top of the list.
Have any of the Rebulican candidates taken a stand against this?
I doubt it. It’s up to us the people to fight locally against this.
Don’t buy GMO food. Fight. We are making progress.
Good for Putin for taking this stand.
Greg & USA watch dog readers.
I cannot overstate enough how important the coming gold reset will be. Once the Chinese have all of their exchange mechanisms in place with the central banks, they are going to come out with an official announcement that they will be backing their currency with gold (sometime in December). This is critical because at about the same time, they will request an immediate audit from the IMF of all the currencies holding Reserve Status.
Do you remember what happened when Germany asked for their Gold back? How about Saudi Arabia having their Gold stolen? Fantasy world is about to have a head on collision with reality. Brace yourselves!
China’s Gold Strategy.
IMF inclusion of the Yuan was just a means to an end. That end is, the end of “King Dollar”. The Chinese are preparing to buy America for pennies on the dollar. I hear people say all the time, “why would China want to collapse our economy when we’re they’re best customer”? My answer. If you own the house, it doesn’t really matter who gets to rent it. What do you think our government put up as collateral when they accepted 2.5 Trillion dollars in loans from the Chinese? Gold? Most likely all of it.
I think you are 100% correct. The key is the Chinese Gold Price Fix. The PBOC has stated that are planning on doing it before the end of 2015. But I’ll be damned if I can find out anything about it. That really concerns me, because it tells me this is going to an overnight surprise attack on the markets. If this is any indication, it could be any day.
Or the reason why you may not be hearing anything more about the Chinese Gold Price Fix right now is because it probably has been delayed until sometime next year.
Agreed. Next Fall is what I’ve heard.
Go away jehovah witness.
I’m sorry eddie, but please don’t fault others.
I think by the biggest news story is that the United States has a blatant diabolical traitor as POTUS and no one in a position of power will call him on it and act. It is the duty of the congress and senate to act accordingly and they don’t. The establishment Republicans have demonstrated that they are useless, spineless and timid capos. I see no leadership coming from this group at all.
Going forward we will see an accelerating trend of Jihadi violence in this country, economic implosion and the elimination of our constitutional rights and freedoms in response to the aforementioned accelerating trends.
When you mention these current events to the average person in the SF Bay Area they don’t care and think Obama is doing a great job and that I am problem (because in their view) and I am nuts.
We have passed the tipping to save the country and average American (who I consider now to be the stupidest people to roam the planet in human history) have no clue as to what is happening to them.
Very sad to see the country melt away like a block of ice in the July afternoon sun in Death Valley.
Greg, we can always count on you to bring sound reason, in the face of increasing chaos. We need a strong leadership which have strong faith and believe the teachings of the scriptures. Without it, we are a nation, without an anchor. Only the truth of scripture can point the way. You, gave us an astounding truth about the shear numbers of Muslims that are radical, and having said what you did, awakens me to the fact, that there is know practical way to have any percentage of Muslim population in this country without increasing the chance of localized terrorism exploding here. A year or two ago, I read an article from Templeton and Phoenix Arizona, about over three hundred law enforcement people gathered for a information seminar about the Islamic effort going on in there area. I will try to find and post the document if possible. Islamic mosque, student organization, and special organized events were being used to support the Muslim brotherhood and do cultural jihad in an attempt to destroy the culture in America. With the mosque being used as a headquarters for the organized planning. After reading the article I printed it and took it to local police station in my small town, to make them aware of these efforts. I will look now, and see if I can find and post the article. Good job on wrap-up.
Greg, the article covering Islamic efforts around Phoenix and Templeton Arizona have been removed. However, I did find a few articles about protest in Templeton where the Main mosque is located. The people in Arizona have been alerted, and are responding, in protest. Your viewers can type in anti-Islamic protest in Templeton Arizona. Should bring up several articles.
Greeks Told To Declare Cash “Under The Mattress”, Jewelry And Precious Stones
Greeks told they have to declare EVERYTHING!!
Everyone-Greece is a precursor for the U.S.
“Greeks told they have to declare EVERYTHING”
Not exactly true. Read the article.
All but….close enough wouldn’t you say
No, I would not say. The problem with many people in the ALT media is that they exaggerate things (fear mongering) which is what you did.
Fearmongering is that what you call it? The article goes to the point of no assets are safe. Declare this- declare that. Whats not to understand?
Greece keeps lowering the bar for what they want to take, once you “declare”anything….they come for more.
This is a very very big deal, whether you want to believe it or not.
Sometimes the truth hurts and its unpleasant.
You will just have to get used to it.
I am not talking about the article being fear mongering. I am talking about your erroneous statement “Greeks told they have to declare EVERYTHING”
Why did you have the word “EVERYTHING” in bold? It was done to emphasize it. Was your statement true? No, not according to the article. Your exaggerating statement is sensationalism, which is a type of fear mongering. ZeroHedge, KWN, Michael Snyder, Dave Hodges and many others are known to do this at times.
Hello, all is going perfectly here and ofcourse every one is sharing data, that’s truly good, keep up writing.
“Democrats should be ashamed….”…Really Greg? Democrats… ashamed? To borrow a phrase from Nancy Pelosi….”Are you serious”
