The Perfect No-Prosecution Crime

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (revised)

Did you know that in the aftermath of the Savings and Loan (Thrifts) scandal there were more than a thousand felony convictions of financial elites?  The cost of the wrongdoing associated with the rip-off and closure of nearly 800 Thrifts cost taxpayers more than $160 billion.  The current sub-prime/mortgage-backed security scandal is 40 times bigger according to Economics professor William Black.  That means the size of the crime is $6.4 trillion by my calculation.  (more…)

Who Really Owns Your Home?

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

There are some big questions facing the real estate market after the foreclosure fraud story exploded in the last few weeks.  The number one question for anyone who has a mortgage is “Who really owns your home?”  This would be simple to answer before the mortgage-backed security (MBS). These MBS’s were mortgages that were bundled together and sold to investors such as pension and bond funds by big banks.  (more…)

Eric Holder Reveals Deep State Running Scared – Kevin Shipp

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)

Former CIA officer and counter-intelligence expert Kevin Shipp says that former Obama Administration Attorney General (AG) Eric Holder gave a big Deep State panic signal when he wrote in an Op-Ed last week in the Washington Post trashing current AG William Barr and his top prosecutor John Durham. Shipp explains, “This is very significant. We all remember that Holder was Obama’s right hand man. Eric Holder was Barack Obama’s enforcer. The fact that Holder comes out this quickly after the Inspector General (IG) Horowitz Report comes out . . . and makes this veiled threat against Durham’s reputation. The fact that Eric Holder came out and made this statement is a clear indication to me they are running scared. We have to understand it was Eric Holder that Barack Obama used to target the heads of corporations that spoke out publicly about Barack Obama. (more…)

Trump vs Deep State in Historic Battle – Kevin Shipp

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Former CIA Officer and whistleblower Kevin Shipp says what is going on in Washington D.C. with the “treason” against Trump is unlike anything we have ever faced as a nation. Shipp explains, “This is an historic battle between the President of the United States and what I call the ‘Shadow Government.’ Some call this the ‘Deep State,’ and that includes the CIA, the FBI and the NSA. President Trump is the first President to stand up against this Shadow Government. They have been spying on Trump since he was a presidential candidate. So, this is huge, it’s historic and nothing like this has ever occurred in any western government. . . . The Shadow Government has been controlling Congress, controlling the judiciary and controlling the President of the United States. No one has stood up against them until Donald J. Trump.  (more…)

WNW 194-Secret Trade Deals, Not Serious About Stopping ISIS, Obama Care and Economy in Trouble

4_jpgBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (6.12.15) 

The Republicans are pushing trade agreements, but they are secret.  Congressman Paul Ryan says “We the People” do not get to know the secret details until Congress votes them through.  On the trade packages in Asia and Europe, Ryan said, “It’s declassified and made public once it’s agreed to.”  Is this his Republican version of the Nancy Pelosi “We have to vote for it to see what’s in it”?  You know it’s a bad deal for everyday Americans when this sort of trade deal is opposed by Democrats, such as Senator Elizabeth Warren and Republican Congressmen Duncan Hunter.  (more…)

WNW 171-Fed and Congress Signal Trouble, Putin Defends Russia, ISIS War

Cuba-Proped-600-LI (2)By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (Friday 12.19.14)

My top story is the economy, and I think the Fed and Congress just signaled that something is seriously wrong, and it’s going to get worse.  First off, the Federal Reserve just came out and said that it was going to be “patient” when normalizing the monetary policy.  I know Wall Street is jubilant and the stock market spiked on the news, but I think this is really ominous, and it is nothing to be celebrated.  (more…)

WNW 168-Ferguson Analysis, Iran Nuke Deal Stalled, Gold Repatriation

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com    (Friday 11.28.14) 

I told you last week there would be no charges for the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, and no charges were brought. Of course, there was rioting and violence, and that seems to be what was wanted.   The Governor of Missouri did not deploy the National Guard, and things got out of control.  Was it done on purpose?  One thing is for sure, this is NOT about race.  (more…)

Ben Bernanke 2013 Update: Federal Reserve Will Keep Printing Money & MoreBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

The big story, once again, comes from Fed Chief Ben Bernanke.  This week, he did a 180 degree about-face and said the easy money policies of the Federal Reserve will go on for the “foreseeable future.”  Last month, he was talking about cutting back or “tapering” the massive $85 billion a month money printing and that caused a mini stock market crash.  (more…)

Gold and Dow Flash the Same Warning Signal

By Greg hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

On Friday, both gold and the Dow flashed the same warning signal—the economy is in deep trouble.  The Dow plunged nearly 275 points on the news of a weak jobs report, and gold rocketed higher by $66 on speculation global bankers are going to print money to resuscitate a dying financial system.  You do not get this kind of tandem move in opposite directions by coincident.  Last week, both the stock and gold markets appeared to stop pretending and acknowledged the vortex of debt and insolvency that could suck us all into a black hole.

The Hormuz Wild Card

Strait of Hormuz

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Iran is threatening to shut down the Strait of Hormuz if more sanctions are installed against it.  Tensions are mounting between the U.S. and other nations as Iran continues to develop a nuclear program.  Most recently, it was reported Iran made its first nuclear fuel rod that it claims is for the peaceful production of energy.  (more…)

Is the World Spinning Out of Control?

Europe Bailout NewsGreg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

More Europe bailout news. Last week, the world was elated with news that the Federal Reserve and five other central banks got together to prop up Eurozone banks drowning on sour sovereign debt, but the crisis is far from over.  The latest scheme is for countries to trade sovereignty over their budgets in return for more bailout money.  (more…)

When?

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

When?  That’s the question that is on the minds of people following the economy.  When will the “you know what” hit the fan and we start another global meltdown.  I am not going to string you along.  I will tell you right now, I don’t know.  I will tell you the headlines I read and the things I am hearing from people in power around the globe say we are in deep danger.  The time is close.  (more…)

The Most Predictable Financial Calamity in History

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

In November 2010, the Federal Reserve announced a second round of economic stimulus commonly referred to as Quantitative Easing (QE2).  The reason, according to the Fed, was “progress toward its objectives has been disappointingly slow.”   So, to try and turn the economy around, the Fed said, “. . . the Committee intends to purchase a further $600 billion of longer-term Treasury securities (more…)

Recession Not Over, Double-Dip or Worse Coming

By Greg Hunter’s

USAWatchdog.com 

Just last week, I ridiculed a group of academic economists for calling an end to the longest recession since World War II.   The National Bureau of Economic Research proclaimed the recession we STILL find ourselves in ended in June of 2009.  The NBER is the official arbiter of the timing of the U.S. business cycle.  Well, I’m not the only person who thinks the NBER’s ascertainment of the economy defies all statistical evidence.    (more…)

Truth Has Fallen and Has Taken Liberty With It

This is a sobering article written by Paul Craig Roberts, a former Deputy Treasury Secretary under the Reagan Administration.  It is the last one Roberts, who has been writing syndicated columns for years,  says he will write!  I emailed Roberts to get permission to reprint his work, and I also asked him why he is, in his words “signing off”?  Roberts sent back this two line reply, “Yes, you can reprint.   I signed off because I came to the conclusion that it is futile to protest war and the police state as long as the 9/11 myth holds.”   The article is riveting– please take time to read it.   Greg Hunter
