North Korea Success, Iran & Israel Tangle, Blue Wave Sinks

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (WNW 334 5.11.18)

Even the biased propaganda of the mainstream media (MSM) had to call what is happening in North Korea a good thing. Will Trump win the Nobel Peace Prize?  Who knows, but there is zero doubt that Trump has made more progress on North Korea than any president since Truman.

Iran has been building military bases in Syria for war, and Israel is attacking them. Syria is also attacking Israel in what looks to be a new chapter in the Syrian conflict.

This week featured several primaries in multiple states. Instead of a so-called “Blue Wave” hitting the political shores, what we saw was a blue fizzle and laid bare the advantage the Democrats have been touting for the upcoming 2018 mid-terms.  The Dems are running on tax increases, impeachment of Trump, destroying the 2nd Amendment and basic Marxism.  That is a very tough bill to sell without outright lying and cheating, which is what I predict the Dems will have to resort to come November.

    The United States will defy most of the world with its Jerusalem embassy opening on Monday.
    There’s something almost spiritual about going against what the majority of the world wants. I’m not saying it is spiritual, understand. But the Bible makes it plain that there are three enemies: the world, the flesh and the devil.
    So combine America defying the will of the world with honoring Israel – whom the world despises – and it adds up to an act of our government which is very encouraging to fundamental, Zionist Christians.
    Seeing America blessing Israel by officially recognizing that Jerusalem and Israel are inseparable is a very encouraging thing.
    God bless America.

      Robert,
      God the Father is smiling!! He might even be laughing out loud.

        “Trump’s decision to pull out of the nuclear deal, but also the blows Iran and its proxies have sustained in recent days in Syria, have been received with unveiled glee by many in the Arab world, who sense that Washington is returning to filling a leading role in the region by defending its allies and blocking Iran’s expansionist endeavors.”

        Greg, I suspect that the Arab nations which approve of Trump’s actions are the “Sheba and Dedan” of Ezekiel 38:13.

      • Mohammad

        Smiling and laughing at the lives that will be wasted in the coming inferno?

        Mohammad

        • Greg Hunter

          Why would you be smiling and laughing?
          Greg

          • Mohammad

            Not me Greg
            Am asking why would your god be smiling and laughing at when scores of lives are going to be lost in the coming war.
            He should be sad.

            Mohammad

            • Greg Hunter

              Mohammad,
              Because the truth was exposed. You think the lies would protect everyone??
              Greg

          • Arthur Barnes

            Because the “the Religion of Peace” tells Mohammad that he can’t live with Israel, Christianity, or the Western Infidels, this country is great not because it has open borders allowing opponents to its borders such as Islam but because it is still a Christian country; and, Mohammad whether you like it or not this IS A CHRISTIAN COUNTRY! Your bull crap about Syria being the all in all of the world is crashing down. The only thing I would like to know is why aren’t you over there trying to protect your ancient history if you love it so much & why does the Muslims want to come to the West in the first instance? Frankly, you can all stay home and leave us alone to enjoy our Bible, Guns & Butter. We never ask your Religion of Peace to cover here, we were doing just fine with Christ in our lives. Your many hateful blogs show your true self as an American Hater, you can’t fool all of us Mo, just some of the usual American beer drinking, football watching idiots, but believe me there are others here not so gullible. Good luck with Syria, hope you return soon!

            • Paul ...

              What Mohammad is trying to say is that those who are happy, gleeful and jumping for joy about war with Iran and the attacking and killing of their enemies now … will be crying the loudest about the “inhuman slaughter” and “foul deeds” of the enemy when bombs and rockets begin falling on Israel in retaliation Israeli women and children are taken away in body bags!! … they will be calling for use of the Samson Option to kill millions more … because working toward “peace” is not their goal … war is … and they will look to the Bible to promote war … irrespective of what that “Crazy man named Jesus” said about his enemies … even when being nailed to a Cross … “Forgive Them Father for Hating This Jew “even though” They Believe I Don’t Have a Right to Exist”!!

              • Arthur Barnes

                Paul, one of my thoughts was that the Religion of Peace will not allow for independent thought. Any deviation from hating Jews, Christians & the West is forbidden and, in fact, punishment could be death. The Religion of Peace was founded on hatred and its kind of innate even for those who come over to the West can’t help but hate the hands that feed them here. I make no apologies for American Christians, I am one and I am proud of it, I will hold onto to my Bible, guns and butter; don’t press it Islam as we are fed up to here with your culture & religion. That is not to say that I don’t believe you have a right to your ideology, you do, its just that I don’t have to assimilate to it, NOR WILL I SUMMIT TO IT~

                • susan

                  Bible, guns and bacon is more like it here.

        • Frederick

          Mohammad According to Zerohedge 56 percent of Americans oppose Trumps abandonment of the Iran nuclear deal or Non deal as some call it Only 26 percent support him

          • Greg Hunter

            Frederick,
            That’s because they think it was signed by Iran. Of course we all know it was NOT. So ask them should the US stay in a deal that was NEVER signed by Iran?? I bet the answer would change.
            Greg

            • Arthur Barnes

              I didn’t agree with the “deal” in the first instance, now the truth is being revealed; Iran made monkeys out of Obama and Kerry. What could you expect from a “closet Muslim” such as Obama, but Kerry, I guess he just couldn’t help but try and hurt America because they wouldn’t make him King; egocentric a##hole that he is.

          • Mohammad

            Frederick,

            It does not matter,
            What matters is the war against Iran which Gen. Clark talked about years back is set in motion.
            Hillary said it, TRUMP IS GOING TO PRESS THE BIG RED BUTTON. We tried the Clintons before for years in the White House, they never initiated a nuclear war, this guy WILL, we had then the best prosperous years here in US, we had the gallon of oil in the sub dollar for YEARS not for a short spike.
            Now for all those cheering Trump in his coming war which he declared by shredding the treaty with Iran, I want to say to them CONGRATS, lets hear what you will say when you will cough up 10 dollars a gallon (at least) at the pump.
            Am waiting for that moment to post.
            They will get their wish, but like the old say goes, be careful what you wish for…!

            Mohammad

            • Greg Hunter

              Mohammad,
              So it OK with you that Iran’s leader writes a book about how to destroy Israel and take the Nuke “deal” (No Signature) and builds 10 military bases in Syria with the intent to make War with Israel and try to wipe them out for a third time. You are good with that? Nothing wrong with this military action against Israel? Those Jews should just walk into the gas chambers–again–NOT!!
              Greg

              • Mohammad

                Greg,
                No it is not OK with me, Iran with the Wahhabis in Saudi Arabia/Emirates/Qatar decimated my country, setting emotions aside am for tightening the bolts and the noose but shy from an all out war that you love to take place which will lead to world war III that you and your Israelis partners are awaiting impatiently, that is all to it, I oppose Iran’s regime, they are Zealous just like the zealous regime in Israel and the zealous regime in Saudi Arabia, and the zealous neocons in US/West/East, but am not for WWIII, and for Sure Clintons would of not get involved in it, we tried them before, but your guy will.

                Mohammad

      • Frederick

        I’d like to hear Dr PC Roberts view on all of this nonsense

    • This sceptred Isle

      Robert, do you believe that every Jewish Israeli person will be saved regardless of their individual actions or will they have to face judgement like everybody else?

      • Robert Zionist Lykens

        No, of course not every Jewish Israeli will be saved. But “all Israel will be saved” according to Romans. That means that Israel will be a Christian nation just like America is, even though not every American is a Christian. But in my opinion a great majority of Israeli Jews will be Christians.
        You have to think about it this way: one day Jesus Christ will be reigning as King of kings from the rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem. There will be few indeed who will be able to remain unsaved with King Jesus dwelling among them.
        I urge all who read this to seek Christ now because as the Bible says, “Every knee will bow and every tongue confess” that Jesus is Lord. It’s far better to bow and confess now than before the Great White Throne of judgment.

        • Robert Zionist Lykens

          God goves a prophecy in Zechariah 13:8, 9 about Istael being saved.
          2/3 of Israel will die and 1/3 will be saved.

          8“In the whole land, declares the LORD,
          two thirds shall be cut off and perish,
          and one third shall be left alive.”
          9”And I will put this third into the fire,
          and refine them as one refines silver,
          and test them as gold is tested.
          They will call upon my name,
          and I will answer them.
          I will say, ‘They are my people’;
          and they will say, ‘The LORD is my God.'”

          So even the third that gets to live and be saved will have to be refined in the fire – no pleasant thing!

          Those who resent Israel for being God’s chosen people don’t have a clue what their resentment is about. No people in history have, or will have to suffer like Israel.
          And even in “good times”, being the nation which is supposed to represent God to the world is a life-consuming thing.

          • This sceptred Isle

            Ok, thanks for answering the question.

    • Randy anti-zionist Hitt

      God separated Israel and Jerusalem many times and Israel has not repented since they rejected and murdered the Christ, for which god through the Romans completely destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD.

      Since then every Jew has specifically rejected the gospel Jesus shared with Nicodemus.

      Maybe I’m missing something here, but I’m pretty sure Christian doctrine says only those reborn in the spirit will inherit ever lasting life. So why are US Christians giving the holy land to those god has NOT sanctified?

      You can have John Hagee, I’ll keep my scriptures and 2000 years of Christian tradition thank you.

      • Greg Hunter

        Yes Randy you are missing something. God loves Israel and the Jews in both the old and new testament. Here are 100 Bible verses to back up my point: https://www.openbible.info/topics/protecting_israel
        Greg

        • Jallen

          Greg,
          What Bible are you reading? New Testament John Chapter 3 versus 34 – 36;
          For he whom G-D hath sent speaketh the words of G-D: for G-D giveth not the spirt by measure unto him.
          The Father loveth the Son and hath given all things into his hand.
          He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of G-d abideth on him.

          Keep in mind Greg, many Israelites converted to Christianity when Christ and his disciples walked the earth!!! THERE IS NO SALVATION BUT BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST!

          Respectfully,
          Jallen

          • Greg Hunter

            Jallen,
            God loves Israel and the Jews. He will no doubt work it out.
            Greg

            • Luther

              Dear Greg,
              You are exactly right! Even though God appeared to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and made personal covenants with them Israel didn’t always live up to being the nation God intended, which is the case even now. If anyone has any doubt of God’s plan for Israel, as a nation, I would urge them to read the thirty-sixth chapter of Ezekiel or at least verses sixteen through thirty-eight.

              Really appreciate what you do! This is my favorite website for content and comments.

              • Paul ...

                Luther … were those Covenants with God signed or unsigned deals? … we Christians only abide by signed deals!! … that’s why the Ten Commandments are not adhered to (we Christians can’t abide by “only the word” of God … so what if he says “Thou Shall Not Kill” … he never signed his Ten Commandments!!

                • Greg Hunter

                  Paul,
                  This is a brand new height ridiculous. God does not have to sign anything because his word is his bond.
                  Greg

            • Jallen

              Greg,
              You are correct. See my entry below.
              Israel will be converted and regathered.

              Jallen

        • Paul ...

          Were we not taught in the Bible that God loved “all his creations” (even the ones that killed his only Son were offered forgiveness) … God was not prejudice nor selective!!

          • Greg Hunter

            Yes he does Paul.
            Greg

        • Jallen

          Greg
          According to the Prophets Israel, regathered from all nations, restored to her own land and converted, is yet to have her greatest earthly exaltation and glory.
          Note: to happen after the fullness of the gentiles.

          Respectfully,

          Jallen

        • Arthur Barnes

          Greg, try a few thousand verses to back up your point!

      • Charles H

        God sanctifies ANY one who come to Him by Biblical faith, whether Jew or Gentile. Have some Jews been converted to Christianity? Yes. Have some Gentiles been converted to Christianity? Yes. So are the Jews to be condemned by percentages?!? You over-generalize. Also – Israel was ‘blinded’ purposefully and spiritually so that the Gentiles could be ‘grafted in’ to the first tree of promise. And you are utterly incorrect about Christians giving the Holy Land to anybody. God Himself deeded this land. Scripture indicates they will return to it. And you might even question your “Christian tradition”. Lots of teachings going around aren’t even Biblical. Keep close with the Scriptures, and nothing else.

      • This sceptred Isle

        Yes, the Zio Christians tell us the only way to be saved is through Jesus and from what I have read most Jews reject him as their saviour. Am I missing something?

        https://www.myjewishlearning.com/article/what-do-jews-believe-about-jesus/

        • Robert Zionist Lykens

          Many reject Christ, including Jews. Just make sure you don’t.

      • Robert Zionist Lykens

        Randy, being a Zionist doesn’t mean hating America or Christianity, or believing that Israel has no flaws.
        It means supporting and promoting the nation of Israel as the former and future home of the King, and being obedient to God, who made it clear that we should bless Zion.
        Look up and read all the places in the Bible that mention Zion. You’ll find that God has a special place in his heart for Mt. Zion, and anger in store for those who don’t.

        • Paul ...

          I’m not sure Bibi is working to save Mt. Zion from being turned to glass in a nuclear exchange with Russia … working toward peace is a lot harder then going to war … but most people want things easy … and they eventually pay the price for taking the easy way out!!

    Thanks Mr Hunter.
    Here in the UK oue economy still sucks for us “deplorables”,yet it is astounding to see the displays of wealth being touted about here in London from British nationals and those who are of questionable wealth,quite a number of the British nationals fall in the questionable wealth zone as well.Here we have laws about “wealth of unknown origin”yet our legal authorities cannot contort themselves enough to accommodate this money no matter how blood soaked.Why even Harrods is owned by a terrorist supporting state(Qatar)according to the CIA,so the idea that Iranians are parading around the UK and despoiling their wealth is not surprising.Why even murderers from Odessa(Ukraine)who we all support are desperately trying to decide whether to buy a Bentley a Ferrari or both with their drug money laundered via Malta into London all known by our beloved security services.Still this goes on from Georgia,Azerbaijan.Israel and Russia of course.London is nothing but a cheap hooker for blood money and still our government with all its laws are silent and inactive.
    Back to scrubbing floors.

        Here in America we shook off the crown and we did that by arming ourselves. Millions of people are law abiding and we the people should not lose our rights to bare arms.

          Greg, agreed, London is a mess with every immigrant known to man who is anti-Christian. Let them in, good luck England, your so politically correct you lost your own culture. Oh, by the way, have your Bobbies go down to the “no goes” areas of London, see if they may have something to say if they come out alive. London is toast, their immigration policies of India, the Middle East, and North Africa has seen to that, good by, won’t be over anytime soon to watch the changing of the guard as it has already taken place!

      Joe Sinclair, Thank you for posting this link. I don’t know what motivated you to do so since it doesn’t seem relative to today’s video, but it came at a most opportune time for me in my “studies”……your timing is more than a coincidence. Thank you, again.

      • J. Sinclair, Extrordinare.

        M, your welcome!
        You know I was wondering the same thing my self.
        In fact I usually don’t check out such things, because their sort of way too out there for me. Somehow I found myself there and after watching a little, found it very interesting. Then with the connection with Nicholas Tesla, unbelievable!
        I also liked Tesla’s take on the higher consciences-ness thing, where he felt he got his idea’s and the producers tie in with the ancients.
        As George Norie would say, it was beyond belief!
        I was so fascinated and Greg is a frequent guest on Coast to Coast with his buddy Norie, where they cover this sort of thing, a lot. I said what the heck.
        Maybe this is a fore gleam of God’s kingdom on Earth? One day hopefully, sooner not later.
        “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as in heaven”
        Were in need of it now, like pronto! As Greg’s WNW and comments seem to pertain too, here on, USAWacthdog.com

        • MCasey

          To J. Sinclair, Extrordinare.
          Me too.
          Friday night, concurrent with reading your post/watching your video, I was also watching the History Channel and its several shows on Tesla and Ancient Monoliths. And same night, stumbled on John G Trump’s (Donald’s uncle) connection to Tesla. (All dots I needed to connect.)

          You know the “higher consciences-ness thing” (God’s revealed wisdom) is not limited to great men and great revelations, but can occur on a regular basis on regular topics to those who ask, seek and knock (although ultimately, they do lead to a ‘higher’ revelation). And, I felt your post was a part of revealed knowledge on my ‘study’ Friday night.

          I am not familiar with George Norie but will accept this as a ‘clue/guidance’ to investigate…..maybe another dot to be connected. Thank you, again.

          • MCasey

            J. Sinclair….Found him! “…..George Noory (Norie) has also appeared in the History Channel series Ancient Aliens….” Seems like the dots have come full ‘circle’ back to the History Channel and Ancient Aliens on Friday night!….Thanks again.

    greg, you are on fire!!!!!!!!!!! red pilling. maybe we should call you dr. hunter. god bless!

  6. William Stanley

    Mr. Hunter: It sure is challenging trying to sort out the ME/Israel. However, much is being revealed which was hitherto hidden.
    One thing that fascinates me is the fracturing of the Anglo/Rothschild/American cabal as it tries — not only unsuccessfully but counterproductively — to cover its tracks while attacking President Trump.
    A related issue is the apparent impossibility of reconciling all the alliances and factions in the ME. Here, my thesis may be at odds with Biblical prophecy: However, my crystal ball tells me that (1) NATO will break up, benefiting Russia; (2) Turkey will align with Russia since they need each other for oil pipelines out of Russia and central Asia; (3) Russia will not back Iran in the coming showdown with Israel and the US. Indeed, it would seem that Russia wouldn’t mind at all if Islamic Iran were weakened. Nor would Russia mind if oil were bottled up in both Iran and Saudi Arabia as a result of hostilities in the Persian Gulf. Moreover, it would only be a plus factor for Russia if the US did most of the dirty work with Iran, suffered most of the costs of the undertaking, and took most of the blame; and (4) Israel wouldn’t mind too much if Saudi Arabia were dinged up in the process, as long as that increased the price of the hydrocarbons it would sell to Europe.
    Bottom line: Russia is the big winner, but Turkey and Israel are also winners and . . . get ready for it . . . become more allied than opposed.
    The US wins by getting out of the quagmire in the ME and weakening its relationship with the Anglo/Rothschild part of the globalist cabal, who are among the losers. (Incidentally, it wouldn’t surprise me if the House of Rothschild clings to the House of Windsor and back stabs Israel in its struggle with Iran).
    With Iran weakened, China loses its ability to dominate the One Belt One Road; indeed Russia wins there as well.
    Finally, if the US smartens up enough, it will try to align itself with Russia, which alignment would benefit both as they both break free of China and the Globalists and save western civilization in the process.
    And they all lived happily ever after.

    • This sceptred Isle

      William you made a number of astute points.
      I believe your points 1 and 2 are related as how can Nato survive in its current form when Turkey is pivoting towards Russia? Surely the potential for Turkey to pass on vital strategic information to Russia, regarding Nato troop movements etc, would be too grave a danger.
      However, not sure if Iran could take on Israel and America without Russian backing as it is a non-nuclear power.

        My thesis is that Iran is a loser here whether they fight or not. The question is, I think, how badly they get dinged up.

    Dear Greg,

    At last, at last in the Netherlands they wrote in the Telegraaf a very good story about how Law is functioning in de USA and also the ‘Deep State’ had there attention. Even ‘ the ‘false flag’ story was good, but missed the ‘Colin Powell – Iraque’ lie and ‘ 9/11’ show.

    It is starting. The USA will be alone.

      Peter,

      Many Americans can not understand the idea of America being alienated. They don’t give account to all the bad things it has done in recent history. Some still believe that all that has to be done is mend a few fences and all is good. Perspective is quite different from’outside’.

    • William Stanley

      Peter:
      RE: “It is starting. The USA will be alone.”
      Alone? Maybe. But not lonely; and, maybe, free!

        Exactly, the deep state is not the USA. Perhaps the deep state will be alone and isolated (preferably in Quantanamo Bay) but we will be free.

  8. Steven Poloncak

    Greg, I will ask you again. Can you get somebody on to explain to everybody who owes what debt to who?

    • This Sceptred Isle

      Bonds are units of debt issued by governments and corporations. They are held by foreign governments as part of their reserves, by pension funds, individual investors and multi billion dollar investment funds.

    • William Stanley

      Steven:
      I think that there is some ambiguity in your question because you haven’t explained why you want to know. For example, are you interested in who the winners and losers would be in a debt jubilee or mutual defaults on debt? Or, are you interested in the question of whether gross debt matters if much of it nets out? Or, are you concerned that even if debt nets out in gross, that counter-party defaults could cause a cascading chain of defaults leading to widespread bankruptcies, and therefore, that the size of gross debt is indicative of the multiplicity of possible weak points and the probability of failure of the system?
      In any event, Steven, I doubt that there is a data source that would provide a granular breakdown of all debt both public and private.

    Mr Hunter, I am a big fan of your program and have over time mostly agreed with your comments. Whatever the internal issues about your political parties may be, I do not assume to know better; so I listen to your comments instructively. On Iran itself, you are plain wrong, indeed your view generally about any of America’s targets for regime change are WRONG because you confuse what America wants as being fundamentally right, without the benefit of an objective view of the problem. Unfortunately, there isn’t a shred of media in the western world that could possibly give you a fair counter-view of the regional issues in the Middle East; not even Al-Jazeera does.

    I can’t pretend to know what Mr Trump and his team are up to with this move, but I fear it will not have positive consequences going forward. We are all sailing on one boat, and no nation can be ejected out of it. Trade is for everyone; without it, we are all at war and it matters not what you or I think is the right and the wrong of it, because this time round EVERYBODY gets hurt, including Americans at home. Whatever the Wolfowitz doctrine has achieved so far is ALL it will achieve because the final group of countries it wants to bring down are seasoned heavyweights; they cannot be coerced nor destroyed as were Yugoslavia and Libya; and the Ukraine (which was a prelude to bringing the RF down).

    If good governance is about setting a long-term course of peace and stability, Mr. Trump’s actions look not to be addressing the long term. Nevertheless, the best comment I ever heard about Mr. Trump, though I don’t know if it is correct, is that burdened by a syndrome of empire over-reach, he is beating a retreat from global dominance without wanting to give that impression to the rest of the world. If this is all that the Trump method is about, it’s a risky way to do it, but quite understandable that he should want to do it that way. If he gets away without causing a major war, the US will recover its prudent governance at home and the world will survive and prosper as a whole. Let’s hope this is not just another zero-sum game, because there is no longer any room for that.

    Respectfully

      Greg I might remind your readers that we are in a full blown currency war.
      1. China has cornered the gold market.
      2. They’ve set up their own currency exchange system with CIPS and SWIFT.
      3. And now they’re stripping away the underpinnings of the petrodollar with the petroyuan.
      Its as plain as the nose on your face. Should the central banks continue to put pressure on the emerging currencies of the BRICS alliance by printing money, they will be forced to choose between breaking away from the petrodollar or risk collapsing their own currencies. What would you do? The contingency plan is the “Silk Road Project”. Once that is complete I have no doubt that they will lay their economic cards on the table.

        A little education Stan. I have been doing real estate investing and insurance for over thirty eight years . Do you know how many times I have purchased foreclosure homes after bubbles have popped ? I have seen equity’s go from $250,000. Down to $65,000. In a matter of months. Don’t tell me there wont be an economic collapse because they happen all the time. The only difference is the rigged Ponzi scheme the fed runs to keep the economic system propped up as a whole. You’re an idiot if you think this can go on indefinitely. It can’t. In the history of the world it never has. Prove me wrong!

        • John

          Let those rates rise like the fed is communicating and you are going to see equity in houses evaporate as liquidity is taken out of the housing market. I feel that we are headed for another housing crisis because people will be so upside down in their mortgage that they will just walk away like they did in 07/08. Just as important as rates rising is the decreased purchasing of bonds going forward – this and rate increases will trigger a bond market collapse and then a stock market collapse. IMHO – this will be the point that Au, Ag and Pt starts to rise as people move out of paper and into precious metals to seek safety – only to soon realize how scarce these commodities are in the market place. Get prepared people – I think we are close to a deflationary collapse in all things paper and an inflationary rise in commodities as people seek safety.

      Jerry, Americans in Turkey should leave, its predicted that Turkey will side with Iran and Russia when the SHTF. Turkey is no friend of the West, just more talking out both side of their mouth as with most Islamic countries.

      Greg, wish you could offer an opinion about my initial question.

  15. Jallen

    Greg and Watchdogs,
    Food for thought. What comprises Israel in the last days? Please refer to you Bible the book of Genesis, Chapter 48 and 49. These chapters foretell what will happen to the tribes of Israel in the last days. Please note, Israel is comprised of the twelve tribes plus the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh (Sons of Joseph). After reading these chapters, do you think all the tribes of Israel can be contained in the current nation named Israel? Notice Joseph’s younger son will become a multitude of nations. No doubt Judah is the royal tribe. Some people think Ephraim and Manasseh are England and the United States. I am aware the current nation of Israel has not yet obtained the physical boundaries set by the Almighty G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

    Jallen

  16. Arthur Barnes

    Greg, Israel is not going to allow Iran to hold unto their new military bases in Syria. The last strike this week was fairly large and I suspect more is coming. Notice how Iran does not send rockets to Israel from within their own borders, they don’t have the balls to as they know their Persian land will be subject to a strike, that is why they have launched from Syria. Their mistake so far has been to believe Russia will protect them from strikes from inside of Syria but that has not happened and probably will not. Iran’s Syrian bases will become a big waste of money and energy very shortly if they haven’t already. There is just no hope for Iran in their attempt to wipe out Israel from the face of the earth, their cards have been played and they stand ready without remorse to receive His wrath for the blood they have shed against His people. Gods will be done! a b

        Forgiveness is important, but Trump also needs to be contrite for his wrongful ways. As Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the Lutheran theologian, once said forgiveness without repentance is like communion without confession, it is not real. Instead it is a form of “cheap grace” or bargain-basement Christianity. Those who followed Trump’s campaign will remember is his response to pollster Frank Luntz who asked if he ever turned to God for forgiveness, Trump’s uncomfortable response, in part, was most telling,”I don’t think so.”

        Trump is the master of never admitting he was wrong and for not apologizing for mistakes. Telling the truth is always a better option than exaggeration, deception and lying. Unfortunately Trump sees any admission of wrong or making mistakes as a sign of weakness prefering, like a petulant child, to deflect or to blame others. Yes, people including presidents are imperfect, but Trump is out of the box – a narcissistic, hyperbolic, mean-spirited and a thin-skinned bully.

        Meanwhile, the Trump tax cut is being eroded by rising gas prices and health care costs continue on an upward trajectory. Trump has reneged on his promise to allow Medicare to negotiate discounts with pharma (a generally accepted negotiation practice in procurement). The imposition of trade tariffs is a mess, posing big problems to exporters and consumers alike down the road. China has already stopped buying soybeans (canceled a net 62,690 metric tons of U.S. soybean purchases recently), the second largest market for our agricultural exports. Other countries around the world will now stand to gain at our expense. Sorting out global trade is not as easy as Trump boasted.

        The national debt is sky-rocketing and government spending is spiraling out of control. The administration and associates are self-dealing and influence-peddling. Kushner business received over $500m of loans originated around the time he was named a senior adviser at the White House No, the swap is not draining but rather turning into a large, dark lagoon with more even bigger albeit different creatures inhabiting it.

        Oh, whatever happened to Trump campaign promise: ‘If I win I may never see my property — I may never see these places again because I’m going to be working for you, I’m not going to have time to go golfing, Believe me. Believe me. Believe me, folks!!’

    Good Morning Greg,
    You have many and frequent guests who discuss “fractional reserve banking”, debt-based currency, and Fiat currency. There are very few individuals in the world who understand this very complex system; in fact, the average person when asked, say it is too complicated or they really don’t want to know, because “ignorance is bliss”. I read many articles and textbooks on this subject and often struggle to cement some of the concepts. I stumbled on a non-profit organization out of England called “Positive Money”. I have looked at their policy statements and financial statement and they appear to be an upfront legitimate organization, and “apolitical”. Their goal is to educate the public to demand a fair and stable monetary system. They have only researched the Bank of England Central Bank, and state upfront, they have not studied our Federal Reserve System; however, they believe they all operate the same. Many of your guests have referred to the “Fed’s Reserve Ratio” with fractional banking. If Positive Money is correct, there is NO reserve ratio. They have put together six very short educational videos, most are only five minutes, the longest and most interesting, lesson three, is twenty minutes long. In my opinion, Positive Money would be a fantastic guest to have on your show and then have past guests like James Rickards or Greg Mannarino evaluate their statements. These “training videos” are the best I have ever seen; they take a very complex subject matter and make it understandable for the person on the street. Thanks for all you do, Godspeed.

    Mikey Lee

    • William Stanley

      Mikey:
      Positive Money’s tutorials look really good to me. Moreover, IMO, Positive Money is correct: there is no simple “Reserve Ratio.” However, (as I understand it) bank regulators, like the Fed, do have regulations relating to capital requirements; and cash and bank balances at the Fed count toward the capital requirement (which provides the “reserve” needed to weather loan defaults and bank runs).
      It should also be noted that the old text book explanation of money creation was always wrong/over-simplified even in the days when there was a simple “reserve ratio,” because it assumed that banks would always lend up to the limits imposed by the reserve ratio without considering the demand for loans and the probabilities of loan defaults. Yet banks did consider such things anyway.
      Despite all this, Central banks, e.g., the Fed, still can and do influence interest rates via their purchases of notes and bonds (as well as by other means) which, in turn, influences the amount of money commercial banks want to create and lend, and borrowers want to borrow. Moreover, the probabilities of defaults on loans is always weighed against the bank’s capital and the capital requirements imposed by the “Fed.”
      In short, IMO, the term “fractional reserve banking” is still a useful shorthand even though, strictly speaking, there is no simple “reserve” requirement, only “capital requirements.”

      • Mikey Lee

        Thanks, William,
        Your input is much appreciated. I have also read that commercial banks can also use current mortgages they hold as collateral with the Fed to write even more loans. It appears to me that currency creation still remains the only thing that man can create out of nothing.

        • William Stanley

          Mikey:
          Another tricky aspect of money creation is that, although a commercial bank can create it “out of thin air,” it is a liability on the bank’s balance sheet. The borrower’s promise to repay is the “offsetting” asset. So, if enough borrowers default on their promises to repay, the bank will go bankrupt and its investors will lose money. Put another way, the created money is not entirely free money to the bank.
          The situation for central banks, e.g., the Fed, is somewhat different. It also can create money out of thin air in order to buy assets, usually bonds (but not limited to bonds). But, although, it can technically go bankrupt (with liabilities greater than assets) if the bond issuers default on their promises to repay, a central bank won’t go out of business. That’s not to say that a central bank cannot “print” so much money out of thin air that it destroys the purchasing power of the money it has created.

          • This sceptred Isle

        • Paul ...

          And it will get worse as time goes on … remember what Pento said … the banksters always try inflation to fix things (i.e. Germany, Zimbabwe , Argentina, Venezuela, etc., etc.) … so the Fed will surely try “Inflation Adjusted Universal Income” dropped from Fed Helicopters like manna from Heaven to keep the people fat and happy … even if it means those who worked all their life to accumulate a few or a trillion US dollars toward their retirement will be wiped out in the process … for under communism “everyone is equal” and the Bushes, Hillary, Comey, etc., etc., with all their millions, billions and trillions will have the exact same wealth in their hands (worthless fiat dollars) … which may actually be a good punishment for the crooks and thieves … as we little people can put “all our wealth” into gold while “they” can’t!!

    • JMiller

      Mickey Lee,

      Just started to watch the banking series videos and already they are saying erroneous things. They say that when you deposit your money in a bank that your money becomes the property of the bank and is no longer your money. That is false. When you deposit your money in the bank you are loaning them your money. There is a debtor-creditor relationship and you have every legal right to expect the return of your money. It is not the ownership of your money that changes. It is the control of your money that changes. The same is true when the bank loans you money. The money is still the banks money. It does not become your money. You are just borrowing it and are required to pay it back and the bank can take legal action if you fail to do so.

    In Tehran, Hossein Salami, deputy commander of the Revolutionary Guards, said that “100,000 missiles are ready to fly’’ in Israel’s direction, and warned they could bring about its “annihilation and collapse.’’

    “14 I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel,
    and they shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them;
    they shall plant vineyards and drink their wine,
    and they shall make gardens and eat their fruit.

    15 I will plant them on their land,
    and they shall never again be uprooted
    out of the land that I have given them,

    says the LORD your God.”
    – Amos 9:14, 15

    MEMO TO WORLD: ISRAEL WILL NOT BE ANNIHILATED, NOR MADE TO LEAVE ITS LAND.

      Amend, ADDITIONAL MEMO TO THE WORLD: in fact, their borders are going to be enlarged at the expense of their present surrounding enemies, including, but not limited to, those peaceful Palestinians swatting in Gaza,

    Its not really correct or fair to say Trump is “embarrassing” – the media exaggerate every time he gaffs and they ignore any issue where he shows his classier side. Especially Trump who comments 1000x per week compared to other public figures. If the media chose to pick out his good side he would look like George Clooney on his best day. Instead they take the 10 worst moves he makes and things he says – the “LYING MEDIA” make him look they way they want him to look. Back in the 1990s he was the darling and could do no wrong – ask Oprah Winfrey who interviewed himon her show.?.?.?

    Hey Greg

    Didnt kerry marry or someone in his family marry an Iranian?

    Greg. Over the last few years the Argentina currency has collapsed. Due to government financial problems the currency is going to toilet paper. If living in Argentina in 2004 you placed your peso in gold. You would have made 3000% return on your monies. On silver your doing 2500% return on your monies. This proves that having some gold and silver in these assets will protect you when the dollar goes the same way as the Argentine peso. Over the last 12 months gold is up nearly 60%. The currency is in collapse. How many people in Argentina wished they had gold in there hands today ?

    • Greg Hunter

      Thank you Keith!!!

    The people of Iran had their democratically elected government overthrown by the CIA and a ruthless dictator ruled for near 40 years as a result, no one should be surprised by hatred caused by the greed of the Illuminati who benefited from the wealth of a country and not the people. Truman did not want to do this but the start of the creeping military industrial complex had its roots in the Eisenhower era. This is a must watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_AHJQiMxIw&feature=youtu.be

    • Paul ...

      The US has become a wasteland … we have squandered hundreds of trillions of dollars fighting nonsensical wars in Vietnam, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Ukraine, etc., etc., etc., etc. and the only thing we have to show for it is a failed fiat monetary system, debt up the kazoo and more enemies then any nation in world history …when are the American people going to put a stop to the neocon warmongers who need to do regime changes every year to keep their military industrial complex money flowing … and with all our money spent on “useless weapons” like nukes that can’t be used, F35 planes that can’t fly and aircraft carrier fleets that can all be sunk in one minute by a couple of dozen Russian hyper-sonic Kinzhal anti-ship missiles … all our money spent on a military “that is not only obsolete” but can’t defend its own Pentagon from a Terrorist with a box cutter that could hardly fly a Cessna but “was able” to wipe out the exact office in the Pentagon that was doing an audit on the 2.3 billion in Defense Budget money that went missing!!

      • Arthur Barnes

        Paul, maybe you live in a wasteland, but I don’t. I live in America the Beautiful, outside in my town the birds are chirping, the skies are blue, the lawns are green, the people are nice, and, by the way, mostly Christians. Sorry you don’t participate in that America, I really wish you did you might not hate her so much.

    • Arthur Barnes

      Paul, nonsense, the Iranian people could have chosen a moderate government at the time of the overthrowing of the Shaw(s) (which were supported by the U.S). But the Iranians wanted to go back 800 years and have Shari-law instead; they supported censorship, anti-Christian, anti-Jews and anti-western values, evidently they still do. They could have placed our embassy people on a plane instead of taking them as hostages. They still have some egg in the eye coming and I think Israel is about to give it to them. They can live in peace, fine with me, but don’t arm and support terrorist to come to my back yard as then I will have to support the demise their government for doing so, and, if the Iranian people support that as well, then let the chips fall where they lay. Frankly, I believe that the Iranian people do support their government with its anti-Christian, Jews, & Western policies and, if so, will receive whats coming to them for their hatred and blood on their hands. As the old saying goes, there will be hell to pay!

    If it wasn’t for Greg Hunter bringing on the guest that he does ,I believe many would still be relying on the lying mainstream media to try and figure things out.
    And would still be in the dark!!!!
    I thank god ,truly , that the truth is coming out thanks to people like Greg and others in the real alternate true news movement.
    Greg ,you deserve an award for what you do !
    Thank you so much for what you have done in reporting the truth!

    Let’s see, you take Iran and Syria. I’ll take Israel and Saudi Arabia. North Korea is back in play. Libya, Yemen, Iraq and Afghanistan have been taken off the board. We sit at our keyboards and play ‘Rule the World’ as if it is fantasy football.

    Who in hell do we think we are? What gives the U.S. the moral authority to determine what weapons other nations can and cannot have for their own defense, or choose the rulers of sovereign nations?

    ‘Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.’ Proverbs 16:18

    • Paul ...

      Yes Roger … and besides all the above … we have cross-dressing drag queen transvestites in our schools teaching our children about sexual preferences … and how not to be a “bi-sexual bigot” … and now proposing that all babies “must give consent” to have their diapers changed … to put in the minds of our children that pedophiles have the “God given Right” to have sex with infants (as long as that infant gave its consent to the perverted sex act)!!

      • Arthur Barnes

        Paul, we also have great teachers of high class teaching value, good morals, citizenship, and respect for each others; you just don’t see the glass half full.

        • Paul ...

          Arthur … the King has no clothes on … take off you rose colored glasses!!

        • Roger D

          ‘Half full’ is 50%. Even using Common Core math one would verify that 92% of the states teach at the altar of Common Core.

          Yes there are good teachers. Our homeschooling teachers are excellent examples. But any teacher who doesn’t recognize how the public school sets the stage to undermine parental authority and indoctrinate children doesn’t really understand the system they are part of. They need not apply to teach our children.

    We know debt is worldwide, not just US or China. We know China and Russia have been stockpiling gold. And we think we know how metals could help out us ‘ little guys’ after the big one passes. But how do you Greg, or any readers, see the advantages of countries with gold playing out since no ones on a gold standard anymore?

    • This Sceptred Isle

      Countries such as China and Russia could let their currencies collapse before issuing a new gold back one – in theory.

      • This Sceptred Isle

        Gold may also be one of a basket of assets used to back a new global currency.

    • John

      Well if you get a country is big as China making everything and you get a country as big as Russia with all of its natural resources working together and they desire transactions of goods and services in currencies backed with gold and other commodities and outside of the dollar then the US is going to have to follow along or will be left behind in the largest emerging economic zone on the planet – Asia. Seriously, our penchant for debt is making the US irrelevant and if not for our military we would have been off the world stage long ago. We are not going to be able to defeat a Sino-Soviet economic/military alliance in Asia – one that is increasingly looking towards gold as a means to conduct trade between countries who are burdened with US dollars and are wanting to diversify out of the dollar before the SHTF. I would love to see Rickards back on if possible and hear his updated views on the SDR.

      • Jodyp

        Thanks John and TSI. We get opinions on what’s causing and coming, no problem. Seems nobody wants to touch what comes after said collapse… seeking a prediction of course. Just cur
        ious.

        • john

          Look what happened to the Soviet Union when it collapsed. Look at what happened after 1929 – this would be two good events of epic scale to give an idea of what could happen to the man on the street if the current system implodes.

    This is not what I voted for. What happened to America first? Meddling in Iranian politics will avail us nothing but trouble. Both China and Russia are to deeply embedded in this regime to make any significant difference.

    What a great presentation! We had tears rolling down our cheeks when you were commenting on the LBGQT…alphabet. Your insight is so important to all believers in understanding the true statistics and involvement of the people united within our country. We would so much enjoy and embrace meeting you in person someday and appreciate all your efforts, dedication and leadership. God Bless You!!! Mary and Dennis

      Thank you Mary and Dennis for your very kind words and support. I work on the Wrap-Up all week with the big day on Thursday. I started around 4:00pm on Thursday and finished at 2:00 am on Friday. I am happy you like the presentation. I know it’s low tech, but I try to pact it with content. Thank you again and I am very happy you enjoyed it.

    I don’t care if Stormy Daniels got paid. I have a life. It does seem to me, though, that as much as she’s blabbing, if she got paid to keep quiet she ought to give the money back.

    1 Corinthians 7:29-31 English Standard Version (ESV)
    29 This is what I mean, brothers: the appointed time has grown very short. From now on, let those who have wives live as though they had none, 30 and those who mourn as though they were not mourning, and those who rejoice as though they were not rejoicing, and those who buy as though they had no goods, 31 and those who deal with the world as though they had no dealings with it. For the present form of this world is passing away.​—1 Cor. 7:29-31.
    Because we are living deep in “the last days,” we are experiencing “critical times hard to deal with.” (2 Tim. 3:1-5) Yet, keeping spiritually strong will do much to offset this world’s negative influences. Paul was not telling married couples to neglect their marital duties. In view of the reduced time, however, they needed to give priority to spiritual matters. (Matt. 6:33) Although we are living in very trying times and marital relationships are failing all around us, it is possible for us to make marriage happy and successful. Indeed, married Christians who stick with the truth and God’s people, many found here on USAWatchdog.com, apply Scriptural counsel and accept the guidance of God’s holy spirit, can preserve “what God has yoked together.”​—Mark 10:9.

      Arthur … To save America … we must open our eyes … listen to all viewpoints … and then after unbiased reasoning … speak our thoughts for others “with open minds” to consider!!

  41. Marcus

    Greg I think you have lost direction.
    Trump is part of the NWO, it is now so so clear he is not for the people. Trump is in full support of Israel and the destruction of sovereign rights. No one is going to jail the noise is just noise, while the NWO continue to remove more and more of our freedom, while they spend millions of $ on all sorts of crap, You congress dose nothing to support Truth.
    meantime we are becoming less and less important.

    • Greg Hunter

      Marcus,
      You are a trump hating idiot. NWO?? TPP, Paris Climate Accord and Iran Nuke (phony & unsigned) deal were all Killed by Trump. All of these deals were NWO constructs. Facts don’t match your premise.
      Greg
