Real Inflation Rate 10% Squeezing Consumers – John Williams

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Economist John Williams says if Hillary would have won the 2016 election, we would “most likely be in a full blown depression.” The problems in the economy started long ago no matter who was elected. Williams says, “I would contend we were already in a recession at the end of the Obama Administration. That’s one reason why Donald Trump got elected.”

Williams says another negative for the economy is resistance on both sides of the isle of swamp creatures who do not want to pass legislation so Trump can bring home better jobs. Williams says, “Their motivation is not to provide those jobs.” So, Congress is working against “We the People,” and Williams goes on to say, “Yes . . . Yes, let me put it this way. Mr. Trump was something of an anti-establishment candidate, and the establishment had been in place on both sides of the isle for a long time. . . . Now, you have someone who is going to change the approach, one that is needed to get the system back on stabile footing. As a result, you have extraordinary turmoil in the press and a lot of opposition in Congress on both sides of the isle. He also has some support, and that’s where this next mid-term election is going to be interesting. My bet is the same people that voted for Mr. Trump for President are sensitive to the fact he has run into a lot of trouble here. If he had a slate of Congressional candidates that were looking at the same thing (as Trump), this whole thing might have gotten off to a little faster footing. There is going to be more people running for Congress this time that are aware of what needs to be done. I think you are going to have some surprises that will help the President.”

Williams sees a declining economy and says, “This is what I see happening. As the economy turns down, that’s a negative for the dollar. Most importantly here, if the Fed backs off its tightening and moves back towards quantitative easing, and their minutes allow for it . . . they’re going to do that. Right now, the dollar is being supported by expectations of a higher interest rate. As the fed moves back towards quantitative easing, you are very likely going to see a massive sell-off in the dollar. The massive sell-off in the dollar becomes very inflationary. This is a big problem right now for the Fed.”

Williams says everyone should hold a core position of physical gold and silver because they will work well as financial protection from a dollar sell-off and inflation.

    Off topic here…. but there is a brand new new flu vaccine… it is supposed to be “more inter-actively rapid” and available….. Right at the time when we are all discovering just how corrupt the deep state really is… right? More than I ever even imagined myself.

    So here we are, they are trying to take down Trump like nothing we have ever seen…. They do damage him to some degree with their lies and bias I suppose…. but…. his armor and resilience seem to be strong (quite remarkable really) and much seems to just bounce off him.

    So, for even a second…. do we not think the deep state will pick up up a step, or 10, or 100, or a gazillion. THEY HATE freedom and the Man we voted in. Look at the FBI. Bever thought I would see anything like it.

    Sooooo, what in the world makes us think they will stop just because President Trump won a few battles….

    My theory… is they could care less about freedome and the Constitution and will not stop. not even yet considering stopping.

    Sooo, tonight I heard, that they have this new vaccine…. Look to see where it is marketed the most? In the deep Red states? I hope not, but in their desperation, we need to really be on full alert. As they are capable of anything…. Even the FBI dudes,,, all but offering to cut off every mans balls to sell us out… to their new evil Queen Hillary Clinton. My Gosh, I HATE weak people who sell out…..

    Bill Holter and John Williams were among the first interviews I watched several years ago. And a guaranteed strong weekly wrap-up ahead? I feel like it’s family reunion week! Winning is everywhere!

    Greg you should drive people to watch the video on Youtube because by watching it on your website no advertisement plays. Therefore, you do not get revenue when video is watched on your website.

    You could simply have a hyperlink to ship the viewer over to Youtube. ETc.

    Hope this helps.

    Mr. Hunter: Thanks again; this is vital information.
    However, it’s frustrating to observe Dr. Williams’ refusal to grasp the nettle, to embrace the implications of his own calculations in the light of the complete lack of political will of Congress to deal constructively with the fiscal situation, out-of-control immigration, the large and growing national debt, the trade deficit, and the hollowing out of manufacturing and much of the rest of the economy. Then, on top of that, let’s add in the already obvious and unbridgeable political divide, and the seditions and treasonous political scandals that are probably the most widespread and evil in the history of the world.
    Yet, Dr. Williams seems to assume, contrary to Mr. Holter (for example), that more debt can somehow revive the economy and save the situation. I’m at a loss; I can’t understand how so many economists can somehow gloss over, or miss altogether, the implications.
    How can there be any doubt that all of this ends very badly: with social chaos (perhaps civil war), a collapsed economy, and hyperinflation and all that goes with all that? In short, why would anyone think that we face anything less than a social and economic catastrophe of the highest order, indeed, possible civilizational collapse?
    At least my best friend didn’t die this week, as his doctors had prognosticated (because, until two days ago) they had missed the most obvious diagnosis possible . . . the effing morons. (Strangely, another example of “normalcy bias”).

    • Beverly Kingsford

      Dear Mr. Stanley,

      I wondered if John Williams does believe that the likelihood of all this crashing, is quite high. But, maybe he has to be careful what he says. Did you notice how he talked about how the establishment doesn’t like Trump? He said these things carefully. He probably doesn’t want to bring anymore doubt into the picture. People panic. I’m already wondering how I should react to Bill Holter’s latest interview. Things very will could collapse this fall. We just have to keep watching closely. As far as your friend’s health….you can’t trust doctors. Get Norman Walker’s book called Colon Health. He has another one called Become Younger. Both very good. But, the colon health book is excellent. Read it and start doing what Norman Walker recommends. Get your friend on systemic enzymes(William Wong) and also digestive enzymes(Jack Stockwell) and also look into Redmond Clay to help remove toxicity. Hope this helps.

      • William Stanley

        Beverly Kingsford: Thank you for the health advice.
        As for Mr. Williams’ answers, I did notice how careful he was and it disturbed me, as well. I sure hope he doesn’t feel threatened by “the establishment.” However, his shadow stats clearly threaten them.

    • Arthur w simpson

      It does end “very badly” Mr. Stanley. With the “social chaos” displayed by ANTIFA of the fascist left, (should be PROFA); a thoughtful read of KJV Revelation chapter 6, perhaps beginning with verse 8ff shall bring us to the prescient moment of ‘now’.

    Greg,
    Care to wager on a gentlemen’s bet between you and I.

    I am betting that the crooked political machine is so powerful that none of Obama, Podesta, Comey, McCabe, Lynch or either Clinton will ever see the inside looking out view of a prison cell. That’s even with the crystal clear evidence for all to be charged with a staggering amount of felonies.

    Please don’t take this wrong as I do really like Trump and what he’s doing for the USA in putting it first. And a great deal of my fellow Canadians also support Trump and want the swamp drained. But there is always something holding him back. It seems like even “The Donald” is struggling to find the balls to pull the pin on that grenade.

        Greg,
        I’m a very avid reader of your site and you took my comment completely wrong.

        I want all listed to pay the price and then some for their traitor acts.

        The point was I unfortunately don’t believe there is anyone going to stand up and charge them with anything.

        The idiot-crats can make up a phoney inquiry with Mueller and charge Trump allies/supporters. But no Republicans are standing up and creating their own inquiry to hold any of the ones I originally mentioned accountable.

        What has to happen for that to actually take place ?

        Being a daily reader of your site and having the utmost respect for what you’re doing with this website it’s offensive to see you comment “not so bright”.

      • ConcAmDad

        Greg, considering Mr. Williams point about slowly and gently educating the masses on all of the fraud including the fabricated and massaged disinformation in economic cooked numbers- if Trump is truly doing God’s work, he could have started with the truth. Since the campaign trail he seems to have abandoned that in favor of claiming credit. During the campaign he mentioned the unemployment rate as a fraud. Now he claims it as his victory. He also seems to frolic in the kabuki theatre of the left-right paradigm.

      • Ross Herman

        Greg, that seems like a harsh response for valid points?

        Hypothetically, what crime would Hilary have to commit (on video) for some law enforcement to actually arrest her and but on the handcuffs?

      • Harald...

        Paul… I like to read the Bible, and it doesn’t actually write about any hell. People like to infer that, and have done so since romans took over christianity, but what Paul and the others fought for was not dualism, where the soul is separated from the body and a very popular idea among non-jews at he time, but being raised up to life again, both body and soul, and then being judged. The people God don’t trust will be given a “second death”, that probably means being removed from existence. Only the fire is everlasting, not the people that ends up there. The righteous are given a non-perishable body.
        Yes, Satan exists, but “Satan” is a term for “the prosecutor” and probably works as a term for the tendency people have to judge each others. The “devil” means “false prosecutor”, signifying this kind of judgementalism is unrighteous. “Satan” obviously means more than that, obviously this has a will of its own, but nowhere does the Bible say that Satan rules in hell. What the Bible say is that the fallen angels are cast into Tartarus, but that’s different from Sheol, the resting place for dead people, which is also different from the heavens where God resides. Bible translators have messed these things up.
        So judgement, yes. But hell, no. God isn’t an evil torturer.

            Greg,

            I will respond only to you concerning this consistent pestering, which is a veiled attack, denying the existence of “Hell”. ANYTHING or ANYONE who disputes the clear record of God’s Word, the Holy Bible is deseminating doctrines of devils. The only commentary on the Bible is the Bible. We are in the Last Days and many attempts to draw away from the Bible will be made. It is unbelievable to see what is being thrown around to see what sticks. But it is the closest to the Truth which deviates – that is the most dangerous. CH

        • Beverly Kingsford

          Harald,

          I agree that Bible translations have messed up our understanding of eternal things. Have you seen the documentaries by Christian Pinto? There is one called Bridge to Babylon that is very interesting. All about the different texts of the Bible. I believe that there is a hell and that it is controlled by Christ. But, I believe the people that go there will suffer mostly because of the inner knowledge they have about their terrible wrong doings. They will have a much better understanding of all the effects of what their actions did to other people. And, their spirits will suffer a very painful hellish pain because of it. I believe they will have to remain there until Christ determines they have suffered enough to pay the price for their actions. Is there the possibility that these people never change though? Maybe they will NEVER regret their actions and change. If that is the case, then I believe they would stay in that hell forever. If people aren’t sorry for their sins, they can’t repent in any way. What will happen in the life after this one? We all have our own ideas about it and we are all learning.

    Thanks Mr Hunter and Mr Williams,somewhat depressing.
    So since 1994 pensions have been slashed along with all the other payouts due to the conniving of Slick Willie and Congress.Yes the New Contract with America under Newt Gingrich and still all you had was your economy decimated and incomes destroyed.How many of these Congress persons and Senators were re-elected since then?
    Mr Blair,here in the UK, took much of this to heart and did the same on steroids.
    Sadly we have all handed to this “controlled”elite complacent power to screw us over.
    Just expect the unexpected and expect little in return for your labour other than rapacious taxation.

    • laura ann

      Maria: Pensions are riskier than 401k’s because the 401’s can be repositioned into bonds when close to retirement like we did and you can choose what you invest in. Retirees: are not getting decent raises for cost of living in SS and medicare keeps going up with higher co pays. Have to watch sales for sure and clip coupons. Drive fuel efficient cars.

  8. NH Watcher

    The beauty and value of this site is the diversity of guests which Greg has on. The theme is always “something is up,” but as to who, what, why, when, and how, there will always be varied opinions … and that is good. We need to wrestle with all these opinions ourselves, going back to our own beliefs and foundation, and then decide how best to move forward.

    Prepping, large or small, is still essential. If not, then why do you even bother coming here and listening to anyone? No one person elected is going to heal all of our wounds, nor is God (and I do believe God is always in control) going to step in and disrupt human free will. The elite believe that they are gods, but, in the end, they are human just as you or me. In the end, they will face judgment like any of us.

    Where does that leave us though? Precisely at the greatest moment in human history. Not for any one country or people. Yes, the Enemy would want us destroyed this very day, and the book of Job is clear that the Enemy can do nothing without God’s knowledge. Still, suffering is universal in the Biblical story, and while suffering has already been dealt with in our souls (as we believe), suffering all around us continues.

    Some of us will only be here for the short term of what is to come, and some of us will be here for the whole thing. Jesus dealt with this before He ascended, when Peter bickered with Him about why he was to die a martyr when John was to live much longer … and Jesus replied to Peter, “What is that to you? You follow me.” We may be following Him to heroic acts, or we may be following Him to our deaths. The true bottom line is: to follow Him.

    I am following Him with some preparation, as is well and good, no matter if the remainder of my life turns out to be as Peter … or as John. And my preparations are not perfect, but this site’s information has continued to help me in deciding (of my own free will) what it is to do.

    • Beverly Kingsford

      NH Watcher,

      Amen to your comment!! Preparation is what it’s all about and following Christ. We can be like 5 of the virgins who didn’t bring extra oil, or we can be like the ones who did. And, these people had to keep watching. In the parable, they all fall asleep. Then when they wake up, some of them have something, some don’t. If we lose faith and hope and fall asleep in Christ, then we will not be prepared. We have to keep watching and preparing all the time until we die, to be really ready.

    John, you’re looking good as you bring a breath of fresh air among the establishment’s past whirling dervish of smelly B.S. I can’t believe these unemployment numbers are still propagated as fact.

    I DISTINCTLY REMEMBER the year 1999 when unemployment was truly below 5%. WAGES WERE HIGH AND RISING! McDonalds and similar establishments were crying out for workers. There were real news stories about this on a daily basis.
    Contrast that today with the “new normal”. Look at the application lines (or web equivalent) when a new McDonalds opens up. This is NOT 5% unemployment. John is 100% correct.

    Jobs were plenty in 1999, as a result wages were rising not “stagflating”. Basic economics.

    John brings out several great points, including the discouraged worker who is still out of work. I know some of them personally! These are professional people, proud of their skill level and way over-qualified for these low paying piece of crap part time jobs where $9/hr is the going rate. THAT’S DISCOURAGING!
    5% unemployment my rear end!

    Thank you Greg for another excellent video and for Truth in the new media

      Jerry,

      When the devil tempted Jesus Christ, taking Him to a high mountain and “showed unto Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto Him, All this power will I give unto Thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will give it.” – do think this was a lie? An illegitimate offer? He was saying the truth of what he could deliver. All the kingdoms of the world, and their glory – in which he has insured the heritage through Time. There are two camps: the world; and we are in the world but not of the world – which correlates to the many and the few. Only the facade of the building will change until… “in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” Until Sin is purged from the Creation itself: rebellion against God will continue to exist; and corruption will hold sway upon the fallen, sinful nature of man. And we have a ways to go – just to there.

    Inflation here too is fudged, just go to the markets and time stamp prices and you’ll see as I did over a 6 month journal, that this 2% annual CPI rise is utter baloney.
    What’s worse is the retail supermarkets and pharmacy chains with all their propaganda ads, promos and slogans about ‘specials & keeping prices down’.

  12. Paul ...

    You know …. why is it John Williams can give us “the exact magnitude” of the inflation rate but the “private” bankster Fed with all their Phd’s (with the blessing of corrupt government politicians) can’t figure it out … and continue to steal the American people’s wealth in broad daylight by keeping their current “fake CPI” … inflation is running at 10% (and the “fake CPI” is only going to give us 1/3 of what we are rightfully due in 2019) … but the “private Fed” will print “unlimited amounts of money” for their bankster buddies … will give the people negative interest rates on their money in the bank and will expropriate any money we have in their bank accounts if that is what is necessary for their bankster buddies to do more speculating and create more derivatives … and what do ordinary people do when these crooks (with a strangle hold on our government) rob the wallets out of our pockets? … nothing … in fact we will allow this “private company” (the Fed) “to tell us we can’t see our own gold” at Fort Knox … what kind of representative government do we have when a “private company” (the Fed) can tell American citizens they can’t see their gold in Fort Knox?? … and can fudge the CPI numbers to give us only 1/3rd of the “real” Cost of Living Increase that is due us? … does this sound like a representative government? … or even a democracy? … when a “private”(Commie Fascist Predatory Oligarchy) company” can swindle us of our money at will … and most everyone just keeps their mouth shut and allows the crooks to do whatever they want (i.e. printing up unlimited amounts of QE money for themselves) … Trump has to shut down this “private company called the Fed” that just gives their printed notes to their bankster friends “for free” … and we must set up a National Bank that will print up Treasury dollars backed by silver and gold to lend to the American people to begin producing “wealth” (not more debt as the Fed does)!!

    • Beverly Kingsford

      Paul,

      A time is coming when there will be no Federal Government anymore. There are so many passive Americans, that it is hard for anything to change. In order to get things to change, I’m afraid that this country will have to suffer a real blow in order to wake people up. And then, how will people be able to learn the truth? They won’t. They don’t want to know the truth. They want somebody else to fix their problems. They don’t want to fix them themselves. It’s only when the people decide it is way past time for them to take on their responsibilities, that this country will be able to recover.

    It looks like the next manufactured crisis is manifesting right on cue in Germany:
    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-06-27/deutsche-bank-tumbles-new-record-low-drags-european-banks

    The BIS and the IMF are established as central banks in every G20 country. They set up patsy banks such as Lehman Brothers in 2008 and now Deutsche Bank in 2018 to engineer a crisis every 7 to 10 years that is bringing us to a world currency:
    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-07-09/economist-get-ready-world-currency-2018

    The low hanging fruit such as the corrupt government officials will continue to be fed to the lions as a way to keep the masses entertained with “bread and circuses” while the beast system continues to evolve to this point completely unrestrained:
    Rev 13:16-17  And he causeth all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, that there be given them a mark on their right hand, or upon their forehead;  (17)  and that no man should be able to buy or to sell, save he that hath the mark, even the name of the beast or the number of his name.

    Trump is being used as a servant just like Cyrus was:
    Isa 44:28  That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure, even saying of Jerusalem, She shall be built; and of the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.
    Isa 45:1-7  Thus saith Jehovah to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him, and I will loose the loins of kings; to open the doors before him, and the gates shall not be shut:  (2)  I will go before thee, and make the rough places smooth; I will break in pieces the doors of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron;  (3)  and I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that it is I, Jehovah, who call thee by thy name, even the God of Israel.  (4)  For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Israel my chosen, I have called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.  (5)  I am Jehovah, and there is none else; besides me there is no God. I will gird thee, though thou hast not known me;  (6)  that they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none besides me: I am Jehovah, and there is none else.  (7)  I form the light, and create darkness; I make peace, and create evil. I am Jehovah, that doeth all these things.

    The church has been grafted into the ONE Olive tree and will go through the tribulation:

      Rob,
      I agree with you. Like the first link in the bottom about the spiritual Israel. Bible clearly states who are the seed of Abraham.
      Gal 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

      Please notice this verse:
      John 8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
      40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

      I encourage all to read whole chapter 8 of John carefully. There is only one name we can be saved and this is Jesus Christ.

      Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

      We are only saved individuals through relationship with Jesus Christ and this includes Jews. There is no corporate salvation, not by inheritance, not buy nationality, not by membership to particular church.

      The subject of Temple of God. All Christendom is awaiting the 3rd Temple. But not only Christians and Jews. Also, 33 degree masons and entire occult world. Let’s see what the Bible says about the 3rd Temple.

      John 2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
      20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
      21 But he spake of the temple of his body. (HIS BODY)

      1Cor 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
      20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. (OUR BODIES).

      Col 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: (CHIST IS IN YOU which is sanctification that must happen before coming of Christ, hope of glory to receive glorified body at His coming).

      So the 3rd temple is the human body and not a building of stone. So, let’s not defile the Temple of God.

      • Charles H

        If two temples were made of stone; then a third made of flesh, would be apples and oranges.
        Old Testament temples were places where blood sacrifices were made to make an atonement, to set aside the penalty of sin. New Testament Christians fulfill or replicate no such function. Only Jesus Christ likened his body to the Jerusalem temple: which DID make a blood sacrifice for sin.
        There is a temple in heaven: where the Blood was offered, on an alter: where it became a propitiation, fufilling the demands of the Law. Do you think this is figurative; or fleshly?
        The Olivet Discourse that mentions Daniel 12 – both declaring “the time of the end”, or “the end of the world”: there IS a holy place in Judea; where the man of sin, the Beast will offer himself as being God, and having power to continue forty and two months – 3 1/2 years or half the Tribulation period. If there won’t be a physical Third Temple: how can the abomination of desolation stand in the holy place? Also the 2Thessalonians 2:3,4 the man of sin, son of perdition – sits in the temple. Jesus Christ isn’t talking about the one during his life and ministry that will be destroyed; but of the Apostacy and End of Time.
        Finally, the Third Temple, whom the apostate Jews wish to build in Jerusalem – can be concurrent with the New Testament spiritual reality of God’s indwelling presence in Believers. There is no precedent to allow us to claim succession. We are a ‘new creation created in Christ Jesus’: which does not lend itself to succession. In fact, the essence of the true tabernacle is when mortality is swallowed up of life, and we are clothed upon with our house which is from heaven; a house not made with hands; in other words – when we pass from this life.
        When the Third Temple starts to be built – I think we will be on a short countdown. It mimics the Field of Dreams epic saying, with derivation: “If they build it: He will come.”

      • Rob

        Amen Andrea!
        I totally agree that the majority of the Christians are focused on the letter and not the Spirit of the Word:
        2 Corinthians 3:4-6 And such confidence have we through Christ to God-ward: (5) not that we are sufficient of ourselves, to account anything as from ourselves; but our sufficiency is from God; (6) who also made us sufficient as ministers of a new covenant; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

        Therefore they focus on literal things in the world like the building of a physical temple in physical Israel when Father has been building a spiritual house and we are the stones:
        1 Peter 2:5 ye also, as living stones, are built up a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

        Those focusing on the letter are becoming lawless as Judas became:

        Thank you Andrea for diligent study of Father’s Word that will keep you from swallowing the lie that a 3rd temple will somehow become holy which would require the Father to dwell there thus breaking His Word:

        Acts 7:48 Howbeit the Most High dwelleth not in houses made with hands; as saith the prophet,

        Acts 17:24 The God that made the world and all things therein, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

        There is in fact the “succession” of the OT covenant with a NT covenant never to the OT covenant again:

        Hebrews 8:9-13 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers In the day that I took them by the hand to lead them forth out of the land of Egypt; For they continued not in my covenant, And I regarded them not, saith the Lord. (10) For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel After those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, And on their heart also will I write them: And I will be to them a God, And they shall be to me a people: (11) And they shall not teach every man his fellow-citizen, And every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: For all shall know me, From the least to the greatest of them. (12) For I will be merciful to their iniquities, And their sins will I remember no more. (13) In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. But that which is becoming old and waxeth aged is nigh unto vanishing away.

        Hebrews 10:1-17 For the law having a shadow of the good things to come, not the very image of the things, can never with the same sacrifices year by year, which they offer continually, make perfect them that draw nigh. (2) Else would they not have ceased to be offered? because the worshippers, having been once cleansed, would have had no more consciousness of sins. (3) But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance made of sins year by year. (4) For it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins. (5) Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, But a body didst thou prepare for me; (6) In whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hadst no pleasure: (7) Then said I, Lo, I am come (In the roll of the book it is written of me) To do thy will, O God. (8) Saying above, Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein (the which are offered according to the law), (9) then hath he said, Lo, I am come to do thy will. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. (10) By which will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. (11) And every priest indeed standeth day by day ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, the which can never take away sins: (12) but he, when he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; (13) henceforth expecting till his enemies be made the footstool of his feet. (14) For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. (15) And the Holy Spirit also beareth witness to us; for after he hath said, (16) This is the covenant that I will make with them After those days, saith the Lord: I will put my laws on their heart, And upon their mind also will I write them; then saith he, (17) And their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

        I do believe they will build a 3rd temple over in physical Israel to weed out those poor souls that do not pay any attention to the Father’s Word but swallow the lies most preachers spew from the pulpits these days:

        Acts 20:28-30 Take heed unto yourselves, and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit hath made you bishops, to feed the church of the Lord which he purchased with his own blood. (29) I know that after my departing grievous wolves shall enter in among you, not sparing the flock; (30) and from among your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them.

      • Beverly Kingsford

        Andre,

        I agree that our bodies are temples and they are sacred and should be taken care of well. I believe that there will be physical temples though, that will be built specifically for Priesthood ordinances to be done during the millenium. Christ told Nicodemus—-in order to be born again you must be baptized of water and of the Spirit. This means that we must be baptized by somebody who holds the proper authority. Why was John the Baptist such a key figure? His father held a key position in the Priesthood. And, holding this position, he was able to pass this authority down to his son, John. John was chosen ahead of his birth, to be the forerunner of Christ, and this because of his valiancy in the pre-earth life. He had to be born through a certain lineage though in order to get that authority. Authority does matter and so do ordinances like baptism and they laying on of hands for the Gift of the Holy Ghost.

  14. Dan

    Mr. Williams better stick to reporting his economic “statistics”, and leave the “forecasting” to others.

    He has spent the last 7 years forecasting the same crap. Each year’s interview repeats last year’s nonsense. Hyper inflation, collapsing stock market, meteoric rise in the pm’s, food shortages, etc.

    And all of us have witnessed the greatest stock market bull run over the last 7 years in the history of the market. Listening to this jerk screwed you out of the best returns you are likely to see in a lifetime.

    None of these morons you keep bringing on here for interviews have a clue when it comes to TIME & PRICE. None of ’em.

    But they should all be in the PT Barnum hall of fame.

    “Nobody ever went broke UNDER-estimating the intelligence of the American public”.

    • William Stanley

      Dan: What’s your forecast for TIME & PRICE?

    • Charles H

      Following your logic – if you listened to the professional gamblers: you could have made the best bets, played the best games – and came out richer than Midas, if you had only listened and been playing as they had done. The Stock Market is a CASINO; and a rigged one too.

      One can’t live in a “what-if” world: lamenting the things they did not do. Life is not judged by what you might have done, or may have had: but by what you got; what you did. If you think the Stock Market is a good deal: get in! If you have doubt as to whether it can continue rising and rendering gains – then you are half acquiescing to the conditions that others arrived at years ago. But by all means you shouldn’t blame-shift phantom, un-realized gains upon others: they aren’t responsible for your decisions! If it hapens that people missed-out: they missed-out. The other side of the coin is being a believer in Bitcoin, and holding on from $14,000.00 to under $6,000.00. Just don’t call people names. You may eat more than lost opportunities; you may end up eating your words.

    • Jodyp

      Dan, I’ll agree no one knows. But wouldn’t we all be morons to come here every week to listen to these morons? You included? Sticks and stones…

    • Beverly Kingsford

      Dan,

      What you are saying is like saying that it’s alright if we all go out and abuse our bodies by drinking, eating junk food, smoking, drinking soda, etc. And, you are saying that as long as we know when it’s time to clean up our act, and we do so, then we will be fine. Then we won’t get cancer or some other disease as long as we clean up our act(ha, ha–right!) But, this is NOT how we save ourselves from a hellish future. The devil works by slowly dragging people down to hell. It’s not going to happen all at once, but if the Devil does it slowly but surely, he will get us there. The stock market is NOT something that is Godly. It is made in hell. Should we even participate in such a thing and support such a thing? I don’t believe so. That is my opinion. Why take the risk? Why play games with the devil’s system? You are going to lose out eventually, if you do. Live by God’s rules all the time though, and you are sure to win, no matter what. Might take a while, but God is watching every one of us and He is testing our patience and integrity.

  15. arthur barnes

    Greg, Congress not helping Trump is an understatement. Never in modern history has a President faced so much opposition within his own party, let alone the antagonistic Democratic party. Frankly, it just makes me support Trump more than ever. Mr. Williams mentions the mid-terms could be interesting, you can bet that it will, I can still hear the great wave for Trump coming to shore out there. One thing I can tell you that we haven’t seen before of if ever and that is Trump will not be bought and he doesn’t fold his cards easily. Thanks for having Mr. Williams on again, he is a true voice in the wilderness, a John the Baptist of the economy if you will. Thanks again. a b

      Arthur Barnes;
      While the Robert DeNiros and the Samantha Bs receive standing ovations by the Hollywood elite and the msm liberals for their disparaging remarks about our President and his daughter. There are those of us in middle America who find their language and attitudes offensive. Our remarks will be expressed in the voting booth this November.

    Let us also note that Iran has been accepting Euro’s and
    gold for their crude oil. The U.S. mafia only allows oil to
    be paid for in dollars. Now you will have sanctions against
    Iran which will cause artificial shortage of crude to the EU.
    Venezuela is unable to produce due to infrastructure problems
    in there oil fields. Happy 4th of July @ the gas pump.
    Oil at the time of this post is trading @ $71.50
    Inflation is about to get real.

  17. jim c

    I believe john Williams is wrong about it being tough to get loans, All you need is a pulse to get a loan, they are loaning money that is printed and free, banks don`t care if your at risk for default, they hide the defaults and only report the money being loaned. I know this first hand because I just got a car loan. there is no way I should have qualified.

    • Paul ...

      The money you got Jim was to help the car companies survive … try applying for a personal loan!

  18. Russ

    Thanks Greg, always good to hear from John Williams. He’s always good for grounding oneself in reality. That said, imo the fireside chats with Roosevelt discussing the emergency banking act (1933) and the 1930’s banking crisis would not work now.

    Maybe it’s just me, but for a President to ask the bottom 99% to sacrifice while it’s evident the top .1% are still getting richer would lost him support among the people who put him in the White House. Trump will need to get congress to pass some legislation to fix the ongoing corruption and for that to happen we will need a lot of new faces in congress. A new breed of incorruptible politicians (is there such an animal) will need to find themselves elected and able to pass needed legislation. The first legislation passed would remove congressional exemptions, make them follow the same laws that affect the rest of us – no more free passes. That might get things moving. Dunno, has it ever been done?

    • Russ

      Speaking of incorruptible politicians, how about …
      Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ousts Joe Crowley in New York stunner, CNN projects

      • Paul ...

        Why not replace all the corruptible politicians in both the House and Senate “with a quantum computer” programed to create fair and equal legislation “for all the people” and reject all special interest group input … have another quantum computer for the Judicial system to dispense “equal justice for all” … and a strategic quantum computer the POTUS can use to get “the best deal” for Americans when negotiating with other countries!!

              Paul . . . , re:” it would be nice to know a more intelligent entity can say: ‘Sorry Hillary I Can’t Do That’!!”
              LOL, I guess you have a good point there. However, as you may know, within living memory (of some of us), Soviet military officers on at least two occasions courageously refused to comply with orders that would have initiated nuclear war.
              Had computers been the final decision makers then, we wouldn’t be here now. We, and all civilization, literally owe our existence to two unsung and virtually nameless Russian heroes.
              BTW, on another occasion, the US Dew Line radars and computers misinterpreted
              the rising moon as a Soviet missile launch. The US nuclear bomber fleet was airborne and on its way before some people figured out what was happening.
              With hypersonic missiles, weaponized space and AI, all nuclear powers may be forced into a “launch on warning” readiness status. Not good.

    Wow. Orders for durable goods fell 0.6% in May following a revised 1% decline in April. *Didn’t they get the memo about our “booming” economy?

    • JMiller

      True. The economy may not be “booming” but it is not as bad as some are saying either.

      • JMiller

        But just to add, there are areas of the country that are actually “booming”. New homes, new stores and businesses, new bank branches, a low unemployment rate with plenty of help wanted signs and ads.

        • Paul ...

          JMiller … The economy “for the people” is being gradually made better by Trump … but the economy “for the WallStreet banksters, brokers and corporate CEO’s” is about to get worse … the borrowing of money for almost nothing and leveraging it massively to drive asset markets higher is being put to an end with rising interest rates (which will drain liquidity) and will have the exact opposite effect that easy money had on the asset markets … the writing is on the wall … stocks will be driven down as speculators begin to deleverage … and Europe is set to reverse their QE policy … and if stock buybacks stop (as there will be no easy money available to continue the no lose game for CEO’s to buy their stocks with borrowed money) they can’t drive their stock prices higher any longer (reaping big fat bonuses for themselves) … with rising interest rates the prolific stock buyback activity now driving stock prices insanely higher (than the underlying fundamentals could logically justify) will come to a screeching halt!!

        • William Stanley

          JMiller: The whole region around one of Elon Musk’s (Tesla’s) factories is booming. What could go wrong?

          • JMiller

            Well not much since there is only one Tesla factory in the U.S., which is in the San Francisco area, and they only produce 4,000 cars a week. If that area is booming, along with the other areas of the country, it sure is not because of that Tesla factory.

            • JMiller

              Just to clarify. When I said the Tesla has one factory, I was referring to their auto producing factory. Tesla does have a battery making factory near Reno Nevada which they employ about 1600 people.

              • Frederick

                Tesla is nothing but a losing Ponzi scheme Investors haven’t realized that yet Musk is just another charlatan

              • William Stanley

                JMiller: The Nevada “gigafactory” is the one I had in mind. It’s had quite an impact there. As you probably know, “Solar City,” now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tesla, just stopped operations in a number of states and laid off thousands of workers.
                While — even combined with Tesla’s automotive problems — that doesn’t necessarily mean that production at the Nevada gigafactory (a joint venture with Panasonic) is imperiled, it isn’t very positive either.

    • JMiller

      Mr. Mannarino,

      Just to point out that one or two months of small declines in durable goods orders is normal even in a booming economy and the general trend for the last two years has been up.

    Greg: fake numbers vs real numbers;some issues:

    l. I remember when Trump (on the stump) decried the fake numbers, but now he embraces them. Either he’s a puppet of the globalists, or he is trying his best to work within the swampy corruption. Hard to tell.
    2. Many left-of-center blogs and sites decry JW and his methods when it would seem logical for them to expose the fake numbers to hurt Trump. Indicates that there is truly only one party with an agenda to destroy America and the middle class by bought-and-paid for politicians.
    3. Inflation at 10% (compounded) means that the debt bomb is close to exploding. Loss of 100% of purchasing power within 6.5 years!!!
    On another site, Rob Kirby offered an interesting analysis on hamburger prices showing loss of purchasing power over a decade. I keep receipts. In 2008, I was paying $1.78/lb for 80%. My last purchase was for $3.98/lb.

    Greg, Always a great interview with Mr. William. Clarity…good accounting methods that provide a strong basis for judging the true waypoint thru the troubled sea of and deception.
    Also…want to quote an article and see if you or anyone of the contributors know the validity of several points in this statement…

    It is easy for the KM to garner enough money to elect anyone they want, because when you control a bank that is a secret major counterfeiter, you have all the money made for you that you desire. At about the same time that they created their illegal tax system in America, they also bribed members of Congress to approve the Internal Revenue Service, which is their private collection agency incorporated in Puerto Rico.
    Soon afterwards, they set up the Federal Bureau of Investigation to protect their banksters, to serve their cover-up needs and prevent them from ever being prosecuted for their child sacrifice rituals, pedophile networks; and to also serve as a covert Intel operation on their behalf.
    Note that the FBI has no official charter, according to the Library of Congress, and has no right to exist or issue paychecks.”

    Spygate Blown Wide Open! Psychopaths Scattering!
    June 25, 2018
    A psychopath will do anything, anytime, anywhere to win.
    They have no scruples and therefore have no constraints on their utterly reckless behavior. Because they completely lack empathy, they care not about the extreme pain and suffering they cause others. They lack the capacity to even consider the horrendous consequences of their actions.
    Hence, they feel unrestrained to commit any wrong, any crime, or any shocking atrocity in order to achieve their objectives. For them, the end always justifies the means… no matter how barbaric or repugnant their actions are.
    On the other hand, people of conscience are significantly limited in what they might do in the attainment of their goals. They will not deliberately perpetrate evil deeds.
    Unlike psychopaths, they do not perform actions to win; rather, they act out of righteousness for the greater good of all.
    More…
    Thanks Greg…John Williams and your other contributors for all your hard, tenacious pursuit of truth AND bring HIS light to the darkness others cause in the world.

    The first thing Trump could have done would have been to start clearing away all the billowing clouds of BS being blown into our faces. Getting an audit of the “federal” “reserve” as well as the pentagon underway would have been nice and likely would have led to other pertinent and poignant questions being asked, which if we all had even a smidgen of dignity left and even a modicum of respect for our God, would have hopefully set alight the genesis of an orderly process of examining, investigating and unraveling the godless fraud we are mired in and likely very soon to be suffering and dying in.

    …………..Of course last time there was loose talk about a pentagon audit several thousand of my fellow Americans were destroyed and used to launch WW3 (aka the war on terror).

      Brian,

      You must have been a Ron Paul supporter. Yes, it would be nice to have that audit. But, Trump has to stay alive to do anything. As long as he relies on God and prays for wisdom……….lets hope that God keeps him alive to do the job he’s in there for. I believe it all depends on the righteousness or wickedness of the American people. If they will repent, then there might be a possibility for a turn around. If not, then this country will go through terrible times. Got to get humbled somehow.

    If the NESARA ACT ( which has been passed) were implemented, it would solve almost everything!!!!! We should all be working to implement this Act. See what would change…………..BTW, Wikipedia does not tell the truth on this.
    What does NESARA Law do?
    NESARA implements the following changes:
    1. Zeros out all credit card, mortgage, and other bank debt due to illegal banking and government activities. This is the Federal Reserve’s worst nightmare, a “jubilee” or a forgiveness of debt.
    2. Abolishes the income tax.
    3. Abolishes the IRS. Employees of the IRS will be transferred into the US Treasury national sales tax area.
    4. Creates a 14% flat rate non-essential new items only sales tax revenue for the government. In other words, food and medicine will not be taxed; nor will used items such as old homes.
    5. Increases benefits to senior citizens.
    6. Returns Constitutional Law to all courts and legal matters.
    7. Reinstates the original Title of Nobility amendment. 13th amendment.
    8. Establishes new Presidential and Congressional elections within 120 days after NESARA’s announcement. The interim government will cancel all National Emergencies and return us back to constitutional law.
    9. Monitors elections and prevents illegal election activities of special interest groups.
    10. Creates a new U.S. Treasury rainbow currency backed by gold, silver, and platinum precious metals, ending the bankruptcy of the United States initiated by Franklin Roosevelt in 1933.
    11. Forbids the sale of American birth certificate records as chattel property bonds by the US Department of Transportation.
    12. Initiates new U.S. Treasury Bank System in alignment with Constitutional Law
    13. Eliminates the Federal Reserve System. During the transition period the Federal Reserve will be allowed to operate side by side of the U.S. treasury for one year in order to remove all Federal Reserve notes from the money supply.
    14. Restores financial privacy.
    15. Retrains all judges and attorneys in Constitutional Law.
    16. Ceases all aggressive, U.S. government military actions worldwide.
    17. Establishes peace throughout the world.
    18. Releases enormous sums of money for humanitarian purposes.
    19. Enables the release of over 6,000 patents of suppressed technologies that are being withheld from the public under the guise of national security, including free energy devices, antigravity, and sonic healing machines.

        Sorry Greg,
        My personal troll got off his leash and wandered into your cyberspace. Stan if you can’t play nice go sit at the kiddie table where you belong and leave the discussion to the adults.

      • Kevin

        Sorry Greg….every single one of his predictions over the last 5 years equal epic fail….

        • Greg Hunter

          kevin,
          You are a nameless troll and you are also dead wrong.
          Greg

    • Paul ...

      Yes Stan … things are looking brighter (by putting the Deutsche bank crooks out of business which will temporarily strengthening the dollar) … this may not seem like a catastrophe to ordinary people … but to the investment banksters it is a very big deal!!

    • William Stanley

      Stan, re: “calling for doom and gloom for several years but no catastrophe has occurred”
      You are so right: not only no catastrophe, but Donald Trump was elected President!

    • Frederick

      Stanley , Mr Williams is a Dartmouth educated economist What’s your accreditation other than your parents basement? We are waiting for your response

      • William Stanley

        Frederick: I have both a Ph.D. (economics) and a JD.
        I taught economics and statistics at the university level. I was also a consultant and government economist.
        Later, I became an attorney who exclusively litigated cases involving economic and financial issues. Sometimes, the amounts involved were for less than $1 million. However, occasionally I litigated cases with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake.
        When I retired, I held the title of Senior Deputy Attorney General for the State of Nevada.
        Since you have so much esteem for accreditation, in the future it would be appropriate for you to address me as “Dr. Stanley.” I would prefer everyone else to continue addressing me as “William.”
        BTW, Frederick, I do hold Mr. Williams in high esteem (even though he does not hold a Ph.D.). However, I don’t think any of us here need be overawed by anyone’s credentials, including each other’s.
        Now, in the interest of equity and fairness, would you be so kind as to share your accreditations and background?

        • Frederick

          I was addressing “Stan” Billy

          • William Stanley

            Sorry, Frederick, I got confused when you addressed him as “Stanley,” not “Stan,” in a comment that appeared right below one of mine.
            I’m glad we’ve got that cleared up.

            • Frederick

              No worries

        • Charles H

          William.

          When you first came on the scene of USAWD: I recognized a fine and well trained intellect. I tried to encourage your participation; and moderate some harsh expression, for more a polished effect. Since then: you have proved yourself, by your own words – to be a positive, and gentleman-like contributor here; astute, well informed, and sharp to detail. From the bulk of your comments you have proved yourself and had NO NEED to list qualifications to anybody, for any reason. But even I fall to such baiting. Thank you for sharing this with us. Beyond all your qualifications: we always sense a good heart – and this is your best qualification of all. CH

          • William Stanley

            Charles H: Thanks for your kindness. I had a weak moment, and I regret having responded as I did.

    Good interview Greg love hearing the truth from John Williams

    The GDP ( Generally Dumb Public ) has to wake up to the fact the Federal Reserve is not their friend. When they raise rates it puts the screws to the middle & lower class in the higher credit card rates home loans… etc. We need to return to honest money & the Fed has to go – they play politics and Americas middle & lower classes pay the price for their actions .

    • Mark Maples

      Mortgage rates are not tied in any way to the FED rate. Mortgage rates are tied to the 10 year note rate

      • Greg Hunter

        Mark,
        That is correct and also (to some extent) LIBOR.
        Greg

        Adjustable rate mortgages are

        • Mark Maples

          I have 20 years past experience in lending on all retail and wholesale levels.

          The FED rate, the one everyone hears and talks about effects the rates of unsecured and revolving debt, primarily credit cards.

          Auto lending is tied to the 5year note rate, mortgages to the 10 year.

  26. Andre

    Great interview. I watch John Williams for years and for years he and others predict collapse of the dollar and based on economic principles he is right and I agree with him. Problem is that the collapse has to be weighted against something. Like Gold for example or oil. But, there is no free market left in the world of anything. The elite has control over all aspects of economy including the gold prices. They knew what was coming so they invented “paper gold”. China gold exchange was supposed to free gold market off this control but so far it didn’t. Why is that?

    The prophecy tells me that the whore with the golden cup will have control entire economy which includes money and precious metals and all businesses and there will be mega corporations in the world and they will worship the beast (“the whore with the golden cup”).
    Also “the whore rides (controls) the beast with seven heads and ten horns” which are the economic powers (please look up Club of Rome and division of the world in 10 regions-10 horns).

    I already wrote about digital currency coming as a way to enforce the mark of the beast:
    Rev 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
    18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (check link in my post from 2 days ago).

    Rome believe (wrongfully) with all the elite that prophetic 1000 years (millennium) of peace is coming under the rules of papacy and “the one”. The one is “cosmic christ” (google it) who will satisfy all religions but who is actually satan. The desired system is NWO which is neo-feudalism/fascism. That’s why is the push for NWO and all these agenda. Jan Paul II spoke about NWO on the visit to Poland in 1980 well before Bush senior. NWO is Vatican agenda based on Thomas Equinas philosophy. Look how they exalt pope – everywhere he goes, including US ruling elite. US was a protestant country and we had no relationship with Vatican until Reagan established embassy in Vatican. Since then, all presidents go to Vatican to kiss the ring.

    But Jesus said:
    John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: ………..

    So they believe that under one religion and the rule of cosmic christ or Maitreya through pope, it will be peace in the world and they will be priests and princes. Yes. This is what they believe. That’s why are all these sacrifices of children.

    But Bible tells me that:
    1Thes 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. (second coming of Christ).

    All this tells me that we are going home soon.

    Coming back to USD. I don’t believe that USD will collapse because prophecy tells me that USA will be the economic and military power to enforce mark of the beast on the entire world so it has to be able to project power.

    • William Stanley

      Andre: I’m confused: You say that, “. . . I already wrote about digital currency coming as a way to enforce the mark of the beast . . ..” However, you also say that, “I don’t believe that USD will collapse because prophecy tells me that USA will be the economic and military power to enforce mark of the beast . . ..”
      Are you saying that: (1) a “digital” currency (do you mean a cryptocurrency?) is coming to “enforce the mark of the beast” and, (2) the USD will also be used to “enforce the mark of the beast”; or are you saying the USD will become digital (meaning what?) and, in that form, “enforce the mark of the beast”? Or what?

    District of Criminals. The shoe fits.
    It is hard to be optimistic, but one way or another change is coming to America.
    Maybe even to the whole world. Life these days is an endless series of point and counter point. No agreement can be found on any subject. I don’t see how this can be sustainable on any front.
    Thank you Greg and John. Truth is a precious commodity.

    Was looking for a market bounce off support here. Not happening.
    Wednesday, June 27, 2:00 central time. Market support broken.
    Are they going to cut the money supply to screw Prez. Trump over?
    It’s possible he is very naive about this. Surely his boy Mnuchin schooled him on how it works? (or doesn’t work!)

    • William Stanley

      Deplorable, re: “Market support broken.”
      Since, IMO there is no chance that Trump is naive about this, I offer this alternative hypothesis: market manipulation is working just fine. So fine . . . for some of us.
      Now, go out and start buying precious metals while life is good and the prices are low.

    NEW SCOTUS PICK FOR TRUMP. EVERY DAY THIS YEAR GETS BETTER AND BETTER.

    DEMS ARE WHINING …Not WINNING !

    WE ARE THOUGH !

  33. John M.

    It’s obvious by now, that America is really one big Potemkin Village with almost everything fake. From plastic boobs that look quite real to our digital US Dollars created on computers, it’s mostly all an illusion. At least Hillary did not LIE convincingly enough to become a REAL Dictator for life! She wanted to take and destroy this Village so badly, but luckily many Americans are just not that gullible.
    That woman is a tool of the globalist swamp, but I digress.
    Inflation has been about 10% for 10 years, which means that when factored into US GDP that we have been in a very real recession (if not depression) for all this time, if not longer. Ho Hum, no new news for those of us who don’t drink the MSM and Gov’t Kool-aid because it just don’t look right or taste right as many people probably have pissed in the punch bowl. I would suspect that it won’t take much for Americans to quickly lose confidence in the dollar, as many Americans can see that their own home finances within this big village do not have solid foundations with so much debt, income stagnation, and real increases in the costs of everything they buy (healthcare, insurance, education, etc.).
    It’s difficult to predict how and when this confidence in the dollar breaks, but certainly it will happen. I’m not so sure that Pres. Trump will tell us the whole truth of all the LIES when this current Petro$ financial system collapses, but he should. Otherwise, it will be very difficult for Americans to understand why America has become a giant third-world village of homeless and huts and why it’s essential to have sound money and a better grasp of other economic realities. The people of this country will turn on Pres. Trump and blame him, in a heartbeat, unless he can educate them quickly, as only he can do. He must convincingly tell Americans how the filthy globalist elites from Washington to Brussels have destroyed our country, and he must make the necessary changes to save what is left of America.

  34. Hoosier river rat

    Andre , it isn’t a matter of taking the mark but what a person does to get the mark. In your forehead means what you think and your right hand means how you act . You will have to perform an act of worship in order to partake of the economy. Satan was made the full pattern ,meaning he lacked nothing . He is a good looking rascal with a convincing tongue . He appears at the 6 the trump ,6th vial and 6th scroll, hence 666. Satan will pose as Christ . If you translate the word anti-Christ from the Greek it means instead of not against . He will fool alote of Christian’s into accepting the mark. Christs number is 777 which in biblical numerics means spiritual completeness. 6 comes before 7 so Satan appears before Christ . But don’t worry keep faithful Christ shortened the time from years to months or even the elect would be fooled . Christ returns to vanquish evil , to rejuvenate the earth and to establish his kingdom . Amen.

    The ability to print money has delayed the inevitable.
    http://finalwakeupcall.info/en/2018/06/27/inflation-is-poorly-understood/

    As Greg M has said repeadly, the ability to print money has allowed us to live a better now. But at what cost? If debt really doesn’t matter why bother keeping track of it? In my mind If you’re obedient to Gods laws there’s no need for forgiveness. The truth is nothing is free. Mercy cannot rob justice anymore than a payment can be made with an IOU. A price must be paid in order to meet the debt, whether it’s monetary or spiritual. Our note is coming due when our Q E credit card is cut in half.

  37. Paul Anthony

    This is awesome! How many Supreme Court Justice’s did Mark Taylor say Trump was going to appoint?

      Five during the time he is President.

      • Paul Anthony

        That Makes me Happy! I believe God gave Mark Taylor that information!

        • Beverly Kingsford

          I don’t believe that is true. Historically, that just hasn’t happened because they don’t die off or leave that fast.
          We will see. Mark Taylor may have the Spirit, but is he prophesying or predicting? We don’t really know that for sure and if we are smart, we will be VERY careful to watch who we follow.

  38. John M.

    There’s always hope.
    Pres. Trump gets to appoint another Supreme Court Justice. And Justice Ruth Ginsburg should be next.

  43. Dan Shalom

    Hi Greg. Love your guest. John Williams is a God send. I am a buyer of precious metals but one thing I hate is that if I buy gold at say $1000 an ounce and inflation kicks up and the price goes up to $2000 or doubles, I assume it is jest PRESERVING my wealth and just matching the rate of inflation. But when I sell that same ounce of gold I then have to pay capital gains on the increase of $1000. So If gold just keeps up with inflation, I still lose money. Could you please bring this up the next time you have your different guests on to address it? Thanks Gregg and I will send another donation later.

  44. Janet Reid

    Mr. Hunter We are dying here in the plains of Kansas, All manufacturing has gone away over the past 20 years. The small farmer is no more. The gas and oil man are just little players barely making anything off of their wells. The big boys farms thousand areas as well as hold many oil and gas leases. Independence Kansas in the southeast part of KS was the wealthiest town with more millionaires than any place in the USA at the turn of the century 1913. Now our town is dying population falls by the hundreds each and every year can’t find a job nowhere not even a mim wage of $7.25 per hour. Some people work at small factory very hard work no air conditioning ect for $11.00 per hour. Very high property taxes, personal property 20% or more taxed on a new vehicle if you had any money. 50% of population makes anywhere from $1.00-$10,000 for family of four per year. 28% make up to $20,000 per year family of four. 22% makes more than $20,000 per year. Talk about hopeless, depression, helpless poor health poor food 1 small terrible Walmart in an 80 mile area. There are many places in America that is awful. Remember we were a very wealth town and had many smart wealthy people in the last 25 years the decay is beyond belief. Coffeyville, Cherryville, Parsons KS many small towns has been destroyed due to NAFTA. Too Late for many of us. Can’t sell your house no one to buy it no way out my husband and I are now 60 years old can’t find work can’t move out we feel helpless and afraid for our futures. We grow garden most people can’t afford to even replace appliances cars tires gas because there isn’t any work and too far from anyplace to drive to a job. No medical close by no food and our sales tax 9.8% can’t afford insurance on house. I NEVER IN MY LIFE thought this would be my life. Oh yes have college degree no place to work all stores has closed except Walmart, Dollar Tree ,Dollar General. I feel like walking out closing the door and drive away and never look back. But where to go we do have a small house paid for have lived here for 5 years and our property taxes has increased 5 fold. I have fought it every year to lower them to many people leaving they just keep raising ALL taxes. Prayer is all any of us have left. Some days I feel so sad about what our life has become and hope that we will be able to leave this place in hope of a better life.

      Janet,

      You are probably experiencing a closer version of what we all will have to deal with when the economy totally collapses. But, you may have figured out a few ways of survival and be ahead in that respect anyway. I believe that belonging to a Church or a Congregation of some kind, and going regularly, is important for survival these days. Perhaps we will find ways to work together and help each other. I know some people in Nevada who belong to a religious group. They all grow gardens and then when the different crops come in, they get together and put it in bottles together. Then, they have a storehouse that they put it all in and each family takes what they need from that storehouse during the year. So, it’s a matter of trusting your neighbor. People produce what they can and contribute what they can. Congregations can organize themselves to do these things and sew things, etc. Communal living. Thanks for your comment Janet. I’m so sorry to hear of your struggles.

    • Liberty

      To Janet,
      Thank you very much for your comment. Try to keep up, do some prepping, ( food, water, gardening, canning, etc.) What it’s happening to the Western World it;s a total crime. It’s totally immoral and those elite must paid for what they are doing to the people.

      Thanks for sharing with us. Very few people understand the real situation in America. Your situation is more pertinent than the majority may think. I grew-up upper-middleclass; but live now upper-lowerclass, well below the Poverty Line. I have a college degree; and have worked the worst jobs. I too can hardly believe where America has come to.

    • Janet Reid

      Thank you Mr. Hunter will never give up. Some days are kind of hard because the future don’t look very good at all. Still hanging on to those American Dreams that will not come to pass for me unless things turn around with the PM ‘s if that happens everything will be pretty rotten for all of us by then. It’s like a huge slap in the face for our country to be in the shape it’s in but my reality started in 2008 and continues to erode my lifestyle to the point that you really worry if you can make it. Inflation is very real and just trying to maintain has slipped away and daily losing ground now must going into modest savings to buy tires, lawn mowers, ect. and wonder how log will we be able to continue on. I can see the day is close at hand where generations will be living together because it will take 4 people not 2 working just to get by. Daily updates on social security, medicare and all things as we thought would be won’t be . I know there are millions of us Americans that are weary and tired worrying about their kids, and grandchildren’s future. I’m surprised that most everyone that I talk to KNOWS somethings wrong but tell you they don’t want to hear it or deal with what will becoming to us all. Thank you for all of the very important information that you and your guest continue to put out there for anyone who is willing to look at what our future holds and ways we can try to help ourselves. May God bless and keep his faithful in the coming times that our country will face. For he is control and knows what is instore for all of us in this world.
