North Korea, once again, leads the Weekly News Wrap-Up.  There has been nothing done to ease tensions in the past week on the Korean Peninsula—just the opposite.  On one side, you have the North Koreans planning more missile launches.  On the other, you have U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel saying North Korea was “skating very close to a dangerous line.”  (more…)

Must See David Stockman Interview

5By Greg Hunter’s

Sometimes I am shocked at what leaks out over the mainstream media.  Two days ago, former White House Budget Director in the Reagan Administration, David Stockman, dropped some financial bombs in an interview on FOX.  He said the Social Security Trust Fund  was “filled with confetti.”   This was not included in the cut I posted.  What is included in the clip is Stockman saying if the Fed was “gone fishing” for six weeks (meaning it would stop the $85 billion a month “open-ended” money printing),  “there would be calamity in the markets.”  (more…)

Just three stories today, but they are big ones–North Korea, the Middle East and the ongoing banking crisis.  North Korea has rattled its saber in the past, but not this loudly.  Any talk that this is another bluff to get the world to back off on the sanctions for its nuclear program is underestimating the seriousness of the situation.  (more…)
