Spending into Oblivion-Gregory Mannarino

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Financial analyst/trader Gregory Mannarino says forget about the recent positive economic news.  The economy is not in recovery and there is a simple way to prove it.  Mannarino says, “All you need to do is look at two metrics, just two, and you can see there is no economic recovery.  One of them is the money velocity.  That’s the rate that cash is moving through an economy. We are at historic lows here.  We also have a labor force participation rate at a three decade low.  So, please explain to me how we can have a recovery without those two simple metrics.”  Mannarino goes on to say, “They’re going to do things to prop this dollar up . . . with regard to bringing us to war, more spending on the military and equipment to fight this new war.  This is all going to be added to GDP.”

On the fact more war is going to explode the debt and deficit, Mannarino says, “The debt doesn’t matter . . . all they are determined to do is hyper and super hyper-inflate the debt bubble because this is the foundation of our economic model.  It is a debt based economic model.  It demands that cash be borrowed into the system in perpetuity.  It cannot stop.  Once we stop or admit we have a debt problem—implosion time.  They are going to look for every single excuse to borrow this cash into existence.  They waited for the right time to do this new war.  They waited for the beheadings to happen so they could get the American people behind spending more.  This is what this is about.  It’s about spending into oblivion.  That’s where we are, and again, we are hyper-inflating that bubble in debt which parallels the population boom and a human bubble.   In fact, it is the greatest threat to humankind period.”

On the stock market, Mannarino says, “The market is still going to go higher here . . .  The European Central Bank will, without a doubt, be instituting full on Federal Reserve style quantitative easing.  They’re already half way there.  They are buying assets from the banks.  They have negative interest rates.  Does this sound familiar?”  So, is this a way to counter Russia cutting gas supplies and raising prices by simply printing money?  Mannarino says, “Without any doubt, this is exactly what they are going to do.  They are not going to allow the economy to falter.  Mario Draghi came out and said he will do whatever it takes.  This is what they are going to do over there, and that’s what is going to push the markets higher.”

It’s all about propping up the western economy, and Mannarino goes on to say, “War is part of the mechanism of propping this entire thing up, and it’s going to get much worse.  Anyone out here has to understand what is going on here; it’s a scramble for resources.  We are witnessing the decimation of the middle class.  A two-tier society is being created, and it will span the globe, unfortunately.  They need to push this higher to foster this wealth transfer that is going on.  With negative interest rates, anyone with a savings account is being robbed here.”

What happens when the money printing stops working?  Mannarino says, “War, we are going to global war.  This is the next step here.  It is the natural progression of where they are taking us now.  This new war we have in Syria, and Iraq is going to get much, much worse here.”

    G.M. has it right! QUOTE— They waited for the right time to do this new war. They waited for the beheadings to happen so they could get the American people behind spending more. This is what this is about.

    I have said it several times, ISIS is created by our govmnt, and the beheadings are very conveinient. We must take Syria to get those pipelines from Qatar to the Syrian border, to counterbalance Gaxprom.

    The Democrats tried to explode a neuk over NC, or SC. but they are sooo wishy washy. We NEED A republican to get a real BIG FALSE FLAG, to rally everyone to take on russia in the Ukraine or Syria.

    Mannarino says, “War, we are going to global war. This is the next step here.

      Russia Disseminates, Snowden Validates, NSA Evidence Corroborates New 9/11 Data Dump

      “This 9/11 data dump is so radioactive the US Government will likely collapse. The world will never be the same when nations everywhere see this report!” – Veteran 9/11 Investigator

      The evidence is now clear and indisputable that the false flag operation carried out on September 11, 2001 was a multi-nation conspiracy. The USA, Israel, Saudi Arabia and UK have each been proven to be directly involved with the execution and coverup of this crime against humanity.

      There were other state actors and intelligence agencies involved such as Pakistan’s ISI; however, the US Federal Government and Israel Secret Services are by far the most complicit. The voluminous amount of circumstantial evidence alone both indicts and convicts the US Government of crimes against its own citizenry. Likewise, Israel’s fingerprints are all over the 9/11 crime scene and directly related criminal activities.

      Enter Russia … Edward Snowden … and the Alternative News Media

      • allen ols


        With the dissemination of the most recent round of 9/11 Truth, the guilty state actors have been painted into the corner … WITH NO WAY OUT. When a nation such as Russia, which possesses an intelligence apparatus second only to the USA, provides high integrity information and data pertaining to the 9/11 false flag operation, and Edward Snowden is backing it up with NSA-generated hard evidence, how can the real perps possibly squeeze out of that corner?

        The internet has seen to it that no one can hide in 2014 and beyond … not in Paraguay, not in Pine Gap, nor in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. What do we mean by this?

        The following bullet points were extracted from one of the most earth-shaking interviews ever conducted on radio. This truly extraordinary interview took place among a group of 9/11 Truth seekers whose collective knowledge base, unique experience set and access to insider information qualified them “to blow the lid off ” the US Government-coordinated conspiracy to commit high treason, mass murder, grand theft and premeditated acts of state-sponsored terrorism.

        The YouTube video of this unprecedented interview is shown below, as is the original hyper-link. This particular link has also been used for the following bulletized transcription of many of the key points concerning 9/11 Truth that were discussed. Many of those points have the YouTube time posted for ease of referencing.

        ▶ Veterans Today Radio (9-22-14) Stew Webb, Gordon Duff, Jim Fetzer, Preston James – YouTube

        Beginning of transcription of key points from the preceding interview:

        World trade center destroyed by nuclear weapons. Documents in hand prove source of materials for these weapons.
        Able Danger investigation proved that the FBI was complicit in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. Mossad Agent Monica Lewinsky was set up to get Clinton to stop investigating the Oklahoma City nuclear event.
        40:01 Real Able Danger established after Oklahoma City bombing, to investigate a group that included a rogue organization within the CIA, Israeli, and Saudi Intelligence. Able Danger pre-report lists CIA [part of Able Danger investigation], The Mossad, and Saudi Intelligence, were operating in the USA as terror cells who called themselves by a code name = Al Qaeda
        Able Danger investigated theft of nuclear material, and the Dept of Energy, stating a high-ranking individual within US Energy Dept, perhaps the Director himself, was an Israeli agent who made available to Viktor Bout, and those working with him, could have been a brother of President George Bush, and the Prime Minister of Israel, and the Prime Minister of South Africa at that time, were all directly involved.
        44:00 Gordon Duff pulls up report Russians sent to him that lists people who planned destruction of the World Trade Center in NYC. 9/11 attacks were partially done as nuclear blackmail, and also to stop Able Danger investigating theft of over $200 trillion and 350 nuclear warheads. Gordon has documents from the Russian government regarding Able Danger.

        Greg M. at his best! Right on all points. I have researched this all thoroughly and Greg is spot on this time. He has done his homework. Silver under production value, no brainer. I said NO BRAINER! HELLO! This is the boom after the doom. On a platter just for you. I’m buying silver at Sprott, safe and sound.

    • brian

      I don’t know about you, but I am having a REAL hard time just, quite literally, sitting here just watching this avalanche of crap bowling right at me. It is an established FACT, and the undiluted truth that the people with the most power in this world have been and will continue to do WHATEVER they can get away with in furthering their position. A position which is simply at odds with our well being, spirituality and liberty. There is no tool they will not use, the only restraint upon them is “us”, and lately “we” are not really doing much restraining….and well, we all can see the results of that.

      We are, as a matter of FACT being walked into a global conflict of some kind, if things simply play out more or less to the will of those people with the most power in this world, it is they who will land on their feet and upon our faces, spines and guts that they will land.

      Something needs to be done, something should have been done decades ago, things simply cannot be allowed to continue as they are for much longer. I for one think a good START would be to start forcing a short list of folks to spill their guts, by whatever means is necessary. Forcing these criminals to shed some real light on the inner workings of what we face here provides the best chance of actually rousing this nation into further action. The only true measure of restitution we will ever get from the criminals who did so much damage to this nation can be found in whatever information we can twist, grind, hammer, extrude, press or otherwise cajole out of them. Only then, with a better and more concrete understanding of what is going on here can we move forward in restoring some semblance of a nation that the founders had in mind.

      Sure a national inquisition might sound drastic, dangerous even, at best it would threaten the very foundation of the civil society and rule of law, but what the heck, aren’t those things pretty much shot to hell and dying on the vine anyway? I’d rather go into chaos with nobody behind the wheel than head into the storm with the guys who steered us into it still in control.

      • Silence is Golden

        More than coincidence ? I believe very strongly all is planned.
        Revolutions and World Wars are not accidents.
        Domination of the world population is their goal. Always has been.
        To point the finger… one must identify the perpetrators.
        That process has to begin at the very top.
        To understand that those in supposed “control” are not ordinary people is an understatement of biblical proportion. Additionally there are many groups vying for supremacy.
        Compounding this monumental problem is that their policies and agendas are endemic to everything that makes our life what it is today.
        The whole system is infected with their cult and mystery religion.
        I am afraid that a Reset of the monetary system will not do the job.
        The cancer has spread and cannot be eradicated without destroying healthy cells.

        Greg may well say “Fear Not”.
        I say there is a lot to be fearful of. Not being pessimistic just realistic.
        No matter which way this plays out, there will inevitably be a tremendous amount of suffering and loss of life.

        Our future was written centuries ago.

          The oligarchs are not really in control. They just think they are.

          • Silence is Golden

            I would have to entirely agree with you there Greg. They have a misplaced sense of power and control.
            Ultimately though, there must be a discovery process to show who/what is at the top of the food chain because if we know the Oligarchs don’t control the show, without a higher order….we are simply rudderless. I quite simply believe what we are seeing by way of events currently are not result of inaction or ineptitude. In the larger scheme of things ….our future is planned.

        It is alleged that Sen. Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin who brought forth the House Un-American Activities Committee – bought America 50 years; for the communists WERE in government back then. There is no one willing or able to organize or mount another defense of this magnitude. Silence is Golden is right. God’s Hand is removed from America, both in Divine response to increasing sin and unrighteousness; as well as the realization of Scriptural prophesy. The White Knight has turned into the Bad Cop. I wish it were otherwise.

        • brian

          unfortunately, we will all REALLY wish it were otherwise once the hammer starts to really fall on us here and the real pain starts. I’m not so sure how eager God is going to be to lend aid to all of us who did not even bother to really do anything meaningful in the way of warning others about this—the sign of Jonah is worth contemplating here, especially when one considers it perhaps has less to do with the emergence of a man from a great fish and more to do with an angry, bitter, resentful man perched atop a hill, in a sun scorched wind under a worm devoured vine, being rebuked by God.

        • James Maher

          Have you no fight in you? You must show courage against the money changers as our Lord did! Pray against the Lords of finance! They are easily defeated by goodness of heart and faith.

    13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

    What an apt metaphor. The intent of frog croaking is to seduce and ward off rivals.
    Government, media and elite intellectuals are croaking with with miraculous effect.

    14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. (Revelations chapter 16 describing events preceding the fall of Babylon)

    Greg; found this article by Justin raimondo

    The Kristoff Brigade and their Kristolian allies on the right were rebuffed, but not defeated. They simply bided their time. After all, things were looking pretty ugly in Iraq, and it wasn’t long before they got ugly enough to spawn the creature known as ISIS – the Islamic State in al Sham [the Levant]. A few beheadings conveniently tweeted by the media-savvy jihadists, a flurry of panicked news reports predicting the imminent fall of Baghdad, a “humanitarian disaster” that in retrospect proved to be greatly exaggerated, and – voila! – another “crisis” erupted, which the War Party was quick to take advantage of.

    It’s hard to keep the American people engaged with foreign affairs: notoriously “isolationist,” we just can’t stay interested in the various overseas “threats” our rulers would have us in a panic over. While Al Qaeda was Washington’s biggest “success” in this regard – the 9/11 attacks really got everyone’s attention and managed to keep Americans focused on the absolute necessity of gutting our Constitution and rampaging over half the earth – that was some thirteen year ago. The assassination of Osama bin Laden, and two drawn-out and absolutely disastrous wars – both ending in what looks dismayingly like defeat – have pretty much exhausted everyone’s patience. The “war on terrorism” launched by George W. Bush with such dramatic fanfare was in danger of petering out, ending not with a bang – or a victory – but without even any acknowledgment on the part of our wise rulers that it was a) over, and b) a horrific failure.

    Yet the blowback from our obtusely wrongheaded policies continues to play havoc with the international landscape, destabilizing governments throughout the Middle East and putting Americans and American interests at risk around the globe. The political class is united in the belief that Washington has to Do Something – after all, our National Prestige is at stake!

    Having deliberately and viciously destroyed the Iraqi state, we stood looking at our handiwork aghast – why, the whole country was in utter chaos! The Iranians were practically in charge, the Kurds were rebelling, and those bothersome Sunnis were up in arms again. What to do?


  4. From Australia

    Thanks Greg, another good video, Mr Mannarino talks straight, no noise, and on the mark, going by the past. I agree with his prediction of a major war, actually there is plenty of shots going off, and more petrol to spill as has been already witnessed! Russia is pulling a big gun out with the latest response, that will surely rattle and shake some pillars, pillars that are already very unsteady. Once the first falls, the barrel of monkeys collapses!

      We probably should add to this rant the facts of the Iran Iraq, Syrian pipeline. Wikipedia can give you a starter. It amazes me how the real source of these conflicts escapes the minds of the willing! It’s all about energies! The escape of free energy topples the whole fascist control of the planet. It’s just that simple. Think in terms of the balance of energies control and you have the enemies whole game plan in your hand. Topple the fiat system by not paying your debts and watch the whole house of cards crumble. It’s just a lie, after all. Don’t participate and you are free!!!!!

  6. Markus M.

    Mannarino lost credibility with me when he said that Putin wants war, that he wanted the Ukraine conflict. Putin merely reacted to NATO/EU actions, and is a lot more levelheaded than his opponents. Not everyone wants war, and a war with Russia would leave gold and silver melted and smoking in the nuclear rubble. You can’t have it both ways: which is it? A world where it makes sense to invest in silver, or a ruined, radiating mess of a planet?

    Dear Greg,
    First of all let me please thank you from the bottom of my heart! I am very impressed with your truthfulness and honesty in your reporting. It is rare these days, to find a humble yet assertive young man with the courage to buck the tide of tolerance, diversity, and political correctness in a post Christian culture. You Sir are a breath of fresh air … in a sea of lies and diversions. God has placed you and blessed you for a time like the one we find our self’s in, your courage and determination to telling truth is needed very badly. you are the voice of reason. You will be in my prayers… And may the Lord Jesus Christ creator of all things visible and invisible keep you and all of your loved ones safe.

    This person seems to ignore facts too. Related?
    “Last week, an Oklahoma man, who recently converted to Islam, went on a violent stabbing spree at his former workplace, including beheading a coworker, but MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry was quick to dismiss his religion as being a factor in the killing. Appearing on her self-titled show on Saturday morning, Harris-Perry insisted that “it is a story that I read as a workplace violence story” and then proceeded to condemn any references to his Islamic faith when discussing the crime. –

    Washington’s Secret Agendas

    Paul Craig Roberts

    One might think that by now even Americans would have caught on to the constant stream of false alarms that Washington sounds in order to deceive the people into supporting its hidden agendas.

    The public fell for the lie that the Taliban in Afghanistan are terrorists allied with al Qaeda. Americans fought a war for 13 years that enriched Dick Cheney’s firm, Halliburton, and other private interests only to end in another Washington failure.

    The public fell for the lie that Saddam Hussein in Iraq had “weapons of mass destruction” that were a threat to America and that if the US did not invade Iraq Americans risked a “mushroom cloud going up over an American city.” With the rise of ISIS, this long war apparently is far from over. Billions of dollars more in profits will pour into the coffers of the US military security complex as Washington fights those who are redrawing the false Middle East boundaries created by the British and French after WW I when the British and French seized territories of the former Ottoman Empire.

    The American public fell for the lies told about Gaddafi in Libya. The formerly stable and prosperous country is now in chaos.

    The American public fell for the lie that Iran has, or is building, nuclear weapons. Sanctioned and reviled by the West, Iran has shifted toward an Eastern orientation, thereby removing a principal oil producer from Western influence.

    The public fell for the lie that Assad of Syria used “chemical weapons against his own people.” The jihadists that Washington sent to overthrow Assad have turned out to be, according to Washington’s propaganda, a threat to America.

    The greatest threat to the world is Washington’s insistence on its hegemony. The ideology of a handful of neoconservatives is the basis for this insistence. We face the situation in which a handful of American neoconservative psychopaths claim to determine the fate of countries;

    Let’s take this to the logical endpoint. If what Mannerino says is true, and I find his argument compelling, then we should be lauding our spendthrift “leaders” in this farce. If willing, creating, printing, or, as Mr. Mannarino says, loaning this money into existence is what keeps us going, we want/need the current (Obama) AND next Mr. or Mrs. Deficit vigorously to pursue this policy, which demonstrates just how crazy it all is. Might as well go on: an intractable, unsolvable, unpayable, ACKNOWLEDGED $17.5 trillion and counting… Best always. PM

      I would agree with you, except for the fact that the element of unsustainability needs to be recognized here. The current general macroeconomic situation, as it exists, encompassing the entire globe, really is beginning to fall apart, the almighty printing presses are cavitating and it is causing all the swords to rattle.

      In order for this to go on much longer we are all going to have to start giving up a lot of our rational integrity and start accepting bald faced, in-our-face lies in much the same way a substance abuser finds it necessary to do, because at the end of the day this is a dependency/abuse type of thing.

    Remember what happened to Mohammed Mossadegh in 1953 when he tried nationalizing the Anglo Iranian oil company (BP) ?


    i AM JUST NOW getting to this, thanks muchly, also, PCR posted this and I will order all three books.


    Perhaps if Americans were taught their true history in place of idealistic fairy tales, they would be less gullible and less susceptible to government propaganda. I have recommended Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick’s The Untold History of the US, Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the US, and now I recommend Stephen Kinzer’s The Brothers, the story of the long rule of John Foster and Allen Dulles over the State Department and CIA and their demonization of reformist governments that they often succeeded in overthrowing. Kinzer’s history of the Dulles brothers’ plots to overthrow six governments provides insight into how Washington operates today.

  21. john

    i enjoy watching and listening to the fascinating and highly informative interviews you have on your show, but i really do not see what mannarino has to offer your listeners. he has/will reduce his listening audience by probably more than half after the 1st of october as he monetizes his youtube channel. furthermore, the barrage of insults he’s hurled at those who follow him proves (to me at least) that he cares only about the bottom line – to help himself. he just went about it all wrong… i would have paid a subscription for a month or two, but the way he presented his intentions were a real turnoff. he became so defensive of his intentions after a storm of comments….. that his actions turn insulting. (he really stepped in it).

    gotta say, he’s not much of an authority to start this week.

    this probably will not make it to your site, but i do encourage you to listen to his commentary this past month on his youtube channel and decide for yourself. FYI- he has deleted some of the videos where he became insulting to his listenership….. but only because he will need subscribers who will find “neutral” episodes that will entice a membership fee. golly geez!

    keep up the great work my friend!

  22. Jerry

    Greg, GM was absolutely correct when he said this is a battle over resources. That’s exactly what it is. Take a look at the top #5 producing oil countries.
    1. Saudi Arabia 13.28%
    2. United States 12.65%
    3. Russia 12.26%
    4. Iran 4.83%
    5. China 4.56%
    According to my sources the Saudi’s are pumping 85% water from their three largest wells. http://www.theoildrum.com/node/4357
    In 1968 the United States went off the gold standard and went to the petrodollar as a peg to its currency, signing an agreement with the Saudis. If the Saudi wells are truly running dry, why would Russia, Iran, and China continue to use the petrodollar for exchange? Especially since Russia just signed an oil deal with Iran? They wouldn’t. In fact I’m guessing the western Banking Cabal has been planning on replacing the Bretton Woods economic model, based on the petrodollar for quite some time, and this is just another opportunity to do it. Iran has wells full of oil, waiting to be pumped as a result of economic embargo’s over the last thirty years, and the Russians and Gazprom can’t wait to cash in on it. It will literally collapse the Saudi economy as well as ours when they do.

    The war in Syria is more about stopping Gazprom than ISIS. The American people are being used as sheep once again. Same thing for Ukraine. Look at the top #5 natural gas producers.
    1. United States
    2. Russia
    3. Iran
    4. Canada
    5. China
    Lets not forget that Russia and China signed a gas deal less than three months ago, not to mention that Russia holds over 20% of the EU’s gas supplies in its hands. Are you beginning to get the picture yet? The world is moving into a new economic paradigm model comprised of the unification of Russia, China and over 105 BRIC nations. The petrodollar is dead.

    Greg. I have a hard time trusting a stock player. To tell me . the . truth. Greg M lost me when he said if people will not educate themselves I (G M) will take advantage of them. I for one can not trust any person that has no compassion for the less fortunate.

      frustrated I am.
      Greg what will we do? This country is sinking fast. You keep interviewing fools like greg manaroon. I have friends millionaire fools just like him that will advise any thing as long as they win from your lose. Get real interviews. I do so wish you had interviewed Obama on 60 minutes. Dumb.

      I think the best way to look at this is you take what you can from people like Greg Mannarino. It’s up to you to sift through his message (and others on here) and pick out what makes sense (and probably seek out more information where it quite doesn’t).

      Personally, I like his style and message – he gets a big thumbs up from me for having the balls and guts to expose the financial system and the Fed for what it is (unlike 99% of his scumbag peers)…..he’s a funny guy too…..so I don’t want or need or desire compassion if I’m getting educated properly and I’m awake to it all (hopefully).

      Btw, compassion won’t get squat when SHTF.

    Even without China and Russia issues, the United States is trapped in what will be a devastating religious war from which we already are unable to extricate ourselves.

    Religious wars are the most devastating. They last generations. You don’t need to look at Muslim conflicts to see how terrible they become. The Lutherans and the Catholics killed each other in what today is Germany and did so until every family had lost someone to a senseless conflict. Finally, exhausted, people agreed in the future to kill one another for other reasons, religion being too horrible a cause. Each side has God or Allah on its side. Neither can lose, so neither wins and the carnage does not stop.

    Messianic Exceptionalsim has trapped us in a conflict with the Muslim world. IS is the tip of the Sunni iceberg. Sunnis are 90% of the Muslim community. The Muslim community is 23% of the entire world population.

    How can we win?

    IS wants us to attack them. They want American boots on the ground so they can demonstrate to their constituency their ability to defeat and humiliate “The Great Satan.” We’ve fallen for it. They will goad us. They will attack us even if we do the unthinkable and withdraw in utter defeat and humiliation.

    Worse yet, the threat of force is far more effective than the use of force. Once others perceive our failure, once we again demonstrate the limits of force, and when people believe the debacles of Iraq and Afghanistan were not one off events, people worldwide who have grievances but thought attacking the United States impossible, will turn on us to avenge the humiliations and deaths we forced on them, their families and loved ones.

    Do we think the Germans love us for the nukes we store on German soil? Do the Japanese love our Marines on Okinawa?

    Just wait until they see the opportunity to assert their freedom from US hegemony. Just wait!

    Do you recall how excruciatingly difficult we found getting out of Vietnam? For some 2 years at least the negotiators argued about the shape and size of the conference table! That lasted until we turned tail and the helicopters evacuated prostitutes with gold strips from the US Embassy in Saigon.

    This time expect the humiliation and the consequences to be orders of magnitude worse.

    This time, with whom to we negotiate? Who speaks for 23% of the world’s population?

    The die is cast. We cannot get out. It’s quite possible our country itself will disintegrate before this war is over.

    Hi Greg,
    I am enjoyed the Carmen Segarra link. Sad part is, that many government regulators that keep the banks in check are afraid of rocking the boat. It’s good to hear that there are people out there that have character.

    Hello Greg and fellow Watchdogs.
    61 years of age and all my life lived with some type of Boogie man about to attack me around the next corner. This is the norm for most people who have internet and television. Never thought I would leave Texas beyond short trips for vacations but in 1990 I headed for Dhahran in Saudi Arabia, Peru, Germany, Kosovo, Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan and the Ukraine. Actually lived in all these places and befriended locals in all these places and the Boogie Man died, except the one behind the curtain telling me there was a Boogie man. Yes, the Russian’s do love their children too. Still don’t have much 100% figured out but seems like the WWF (World Wrestling Federation) more than anything. Wouldn’t it be a hoot to find that all these Elite with their gated communities, Military and Police protection world wide are playing their people to maintain the status quo where they are? One thing I found all I befriended had in common was distrust of Elites and government. Funny thing is most of them seem to be more informed about the abuses in their nations than we are. As international as the world is becoming it stands to reason that the little people will soon realize their neighbor’s across the border want to be left alone as much as anyone and the threats were mostly contrived. That I’m sure wont be a problem because then they can pull the ET card and have us all fearing them. I was afraid for at least 47 years and for what. Just wasted valuable time. ENJOY!!!

    Greetings Greg:
    You may ditch this if you deem it inappropriate. No harm, no foul! you are doing a great job!
    Come now Free Oregon! Calm yourself! We will win on our soil. Our lucky break is that this mess will spin out of control in England and Europe very early before we are so outnumbered in our own country. The lesson will be taught to the unarmed masses. Just like zombies it takes a lot of firepower for a small number to stop a herd of machetes. We are not unarmed. If you do not own a battle rifle go buy one, stop whining and learn how to use it. One day you or your kids will need it. Was just mentioning this eve that within five years of a grid down or semi grid down(caused by shutting down coal fired plants or whatever) the most dangerous thing we will face is the wild animals turned lose here that have reverted and the tame animals gone wild. Have you ever met even a small pack of starving dogs gone wild? I have, thank the man who invented flashlights and Mr. Smith, Mr Wesson and Mr Beretta, and…..

    I have two large orders for silver eagles out from NW territorial mint. about 6,000 oz in total. estimated delivery time …… 10 weeks!!! at $17.50 silver is selling for about 30% under replacement cost, and there are zero above ground inventories. Greg M is right on. Silver at these prices ( assume you can get filled) is the cheapest thing that has ever existed on the planet. From what I hear, JP Morgan is shorting the paper markets here and buying as much physical silver as they can get their hands on. they have a huge short position on the Crimex. once they get all the cheap silver they can, they will cover and go long. ANY excess cash that you folks have should be invested in physical silver, it is the opportunity of a lifetime. If they drop it down under $17 I will go ALL IN!!!

      Just a little story Me and many others got caught up in back in the early 80’s. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swrrAQBsEE0
      You know the saying about those who don’t know history. There is also a part 2 if one isn’t enough. Red shield, Rocky and the Architects want visible controllable digits. They already have them and are in the process of increasing and consolidating them for ease of control. CNN Money front page headline yesterday was “US Dollar Stronger Than Ever”. You and I know this can’t be true but our world for some time now has spun around their impossible truths. Good for me that I see truths beyond this world. Hope your silver venture does better than mine. Bought mine in the early 80’s at a little over $14 per ounce. Within a few months it was a little over $4 and stayed there.

  29. Silence is Golden

    The more I see of what is happening in this world just confirms that nothing surprises me anymore…… BUT the stark reality is that the issues are enormous & very concerning.
    Just to consider that The US, EZ, China and Russia are pushing their nations / zones into depressions and perhaps WAR is without doubt the scariest thought.
    There is no formal acknowledgement of the fact that debt has become inwardly destructive, because to do so would ring all alarm bells and formally invite a very severe corrective/liquidation phase from which there is no escape.
    Combining that with the notion that Governments, through various instrumentalities, have become Managed Equity Holders and Real Estate Barons all the while they playfully muse about the price-setting and price-taking mechanism. They are one in the same.
    They also contrive markets …..that is to give the appearance that they actually exist. We know they don’t exist….and it is far better to remove oneself from the notion of any market existing…..for sanity and wealth preservation purposes alone.
    I am solely convinced that governments of the western world have been brainwashed into thinking that capitalism cannot work without the influence (CONTROL) of BIG BROTHER working in tandem. Communism is getting a stranglehold and the patients are losing consciousness.
    Our world today is vastly different that it was at the turn of the 21st century. Again in less than a decade from now, we will arrive at another destination, which like the prior decade timespan, will be eerily similar and yet marked differences will be apparent.

    The masterful plan to set up the USA with all the pomp and ceremony that one would expect no less than that of Rome re-incarnate, was successful for but a short time. It is now finding itself treading the familiar path of the once great Roman Empire. The Empire’s Bank is bleeding, the Nation State is mortally wounded. Its vast military stretched to every corner of the Globe. The great planners erred by allowing too many privileges for the common men who were elevated to the highest position. They took liberty with their position and became intoxicated with the wine of mutual deification all the while they were intent upon the prey of earthly profit and material pleasures.
    The godless elites of the world will inevitably achieve their “chosen people status” through the mechanisms that have got us to this point.
    Rome will eventually be destroyed by Communism and in turn, the world.

  30. Oblivion

    How The Old World Disorder; Ends!
    “You are not in darkness, so that that day should overtake you as it would thieves.”—1 THESS. 5:4.

    What yet unseen developments are indicated in the following scriptures?
    1 Thessalonians 5:3
    Revelation 17:16
    Daniel 2:44

    EARTHSHAKING events will soon occur. The fulfillment of Bible prophecies of today, “NOW,” confirms this fact, so we need to keep on the watch. What will help us to do that? The apostle Paul urges us to “keep our eyes . . . on the things unseen.” Yes, we need to bear in mind our reward of everlasting life, be it in heaven or on earth. As the context shows, Paul wrote these words to encourage fellow believers to focus on the happy outcome of their faithful course. Doing so would also help them to cope with trials and persecution.—2 Cor. 4:8, 9, 16-18; 5:7.

    Paul’s admonition contains an important principle: To keep our hope firm, we must look beyond the things that are immediately before us. We need to focus on significant events that are as yet unseen. (Heb. 11:1; 12:1, 2)


    Our dear leaders announcing peace to crowds of people world wide?

    One future development is mentioned by Paul in his letter to the Thessalonians. (Read 1 Thessalonians 5:2, 3.) He draws attention to “the great day,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqvlucAVoqI, the Lords day, to the period that will start with the destruction of false religion and will culminate in the war of Armageddon. However, just before that day begins, world leaders will be saying “Peace and security!” This may refer to one event or to a series of events. Nations may think that they are close to solving some of their big problems. What about the religious leaders? 99.9% are part of the world, so it is possible that they will join the political leaders. (Rev. 17:1, 2) The clergy would thus be imitating the false prophets of ancient Judah. Jehovah said about them: “They [are] saying, ‘There is peace! There is peace!’ when there is no peace.”—Jer. 6:14; 23:16, 17.


    1.  Proclamation of “Peace and security!”
    2.  Nations attack and destroy “Babylon the Great”
    3.  Attack on God’s people
    4.  War of Armageddon
    5.  Satan and his demons are abyssed

    No matter who will share in saying “Peace and security!” that development will indicate that the great day is to begin. Paul could therefore state: “Brothers, you are not in darkness, so that that day should overtake you as it would thieves, for you are all sons of light.” (1 Thess. 5:4, 5) Unlike mankind in general, we can discern the Scriptural significance of current events. How exactly will this prophecy about saying “Peace and security!” be fulfilled? We must wait and see. Therefore, let us be determined to “stay awake and keep our senses.”—1 Thess. 5:6; Zeph. 3:8.

    What yet unseen event will take place next? Paul stated: “Whenever it is that they are saying: ‘Peace and security!’ then sudden destruction is to be instantly upon them.” The first phase of this “sudden destruction” is the attack against “Babylon the Great,” the world empire of false religion, also known as “the harlot.” (Rev. 17:5, 6, 15) That attack against all forms of false religion, including Christendom, is the start of the “great tribulation.” (Matt. 24:21; 2 Thess. 2:8) For many, this event will come as a surprise. Why? Because up to that point, the harlot “all false religion” will confidently view herself as “a queen” who will “never see mourning.” But she will suddenly discover that she has miscalculated her chances of survival. She will be wiped out rather quickly, as if “in one day.”—Rev. 18:7, 8.

    False religion will be destroyed by whom?

    God’s Word identifies the harlot’s attacker as a “wild beast” with “ten horns.” A study of the book of Revelation shows that the wild beast refers to the United Nations (UN). “The ten horns” represent all present political powers that support this “scarlet-colored wild beast.” (Rev. 17:3, 5, 11, 12) How devastating will the attack be? The nations of the UN will plunder the harlot’s wealth, expose her real character, devour her, and “completely burn her.” Her destruction will be final.—Read Revelation 17:16.

    What will trigger the attack by the “wild beast”?

    Bible prophecy also indicates what will trigger this attack. Somehow God will put it into the hearts of political rulers “to carry out his thought,” namely, to devastate the harlot. (Rev. 17:17) Warmongering religion continues to be a disruptive force in the world; hence, the nations may feel that destroying the harlot is in their own national interests. In fact, when the rulers attack, they will think that they are carrying out their own “one thought.” In reality, however, they act as God’s tool for obliterating all false religion. Thus, in a stunning reversal, one part of Satan’s system will attack another part, and Satan will be powerless to prevent it.—Matt. 12:25, 26.


    Armed soldiers and riot police?

    What is the attack by “Gog of the land of Magog”?

    After false religion has been destroyed, God’s servants will still be found “dwelling in security” and “without wall.” (Ezek. 38:11, 14) What will happen to this seemingly defenseless group of people who continue to worship the all mighty? It appears that they will become the object of an all-out assault by “many peoples.” God’s Word describes that development as the attack by “Gog of the land of Magog.” (Read Ezekiel 38:2, 15, 16.) How should we view that attack?

    What is a Christian’s main concern and what steps should we take now to strengthen our faith?

    Knowing in advance about this attack on God’s people does not make us overly anxious. Rather, our main concern is, not our own salvation, but the sanctification of Gods name and the vindication of his sovereignty. In fact, Jehovah declared more than 60 times: “You will have to know that I am Jehovah.” (Ezek. 6:7; see footnote.) Hence, we look forward with intense interest to the fulfillment of that outstanding aspect of Ezekiel’s prophecy, trusting that “ our heavenly father,” knows how to deliver people of godly devotion out of trial.” (2 Pet. 2:9) Meanwhile, we want to use every opportunity to strengthen our faith so that we will be able to keep our integrity to God no matter what tests we may face. What should we do? We should pray, study God’s Word and meditate on it, and share this good news with others. By doing so, we keep our hope of everlasting life firm, like “an anchor.”—Heb. 6:19; Ps. 25:21.


    What earthshaking event will be triggered by the attack on Gods people? Jehovah, by means of Jesus and the heavenly armies, will intervene in behalf of His people. (Rev. 19:11-16) That intervention will be “the war of the great day of God the Almighty”—Armageddon.—Rev. 16:14, 16.

    Regarding that war, Jehovah declares by means of Ezekiel: “‘I will call forth against [Gog] throughout all my mountainous region a sword,’ is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah. ‘Against his own brother the sword of each one will come to be.’” Panic-stricken, those on Satan’s side will be thrown into confusion and will turn their weapons against their own ranks—warrior against warrior. However, havoc is also to come Satan’s way. Jehovah God states: “Fire and sulphur I shall rain down upon [Gog] and upon his bands and upon the many peoples that will be with him.” (Ezek. 38:21, 22) What will be the result of this divine action?

    The nations will have to realize that their crushing defeat is brought about by the order of the true God himself. Then, as did the ancient Egyptian attackers who pursued the Israelites at the Red Sea, Satan’s forces may cry out in desperation: “Jehovah certainly fights for them”! (Ex. 14:25) Yes, the nations will be forced to acknowledge Jehovah. (Read Ezekiel 38:23.) How close are we to the start of this chain of events?


    A prophecy in the book of Daniel enables us to establish where we are in the stream of time. Daniel describes an image in human form made up of different metals. (Dan. 2:28, 31-33) It represents successive world powers that have had a major influence on God’s people, past and present. They are Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome—and the last, in our time, another world power. A study of Daniel’s prophecy shows that this final world power is depicted in the image as the feet and toes. During World War I, Britain and the United States forged a special partnership. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZjZvwuUV6s Yes, the fifth part of Daniel’s image is the Anglo-American World Power. The feet form the last part of the image, indicating that no other human world power will appear on the scene. That the feet and toes are made up of iron and clay pictures the weakened state of the Anglo-American World Power.

    Which world power will be the dominant one when Armageddon strikes? Hint;

    The same prophecy indicates that God’s Kingdom, pictured by a large stone, was cut from the mountain of Jehovah’s sovereignty in 1914. That stone is now hurtling toward its target—the feet of the image. At Armageddon, the feet and the rest of the image will be smashed. (Read Daniel 2:44, 45.) Thus, the Anglo-American World Power will still be the dominant world power when Armageddon strikes. How thrilling it will be to witness the complete fulfillment of this prophecy! What, though, does our God have in store for Satan himself?


    A dragon thrown into an abyss

    After Armageddon, what will happen to Satan and his demons?
    First, Satan will have to witness from beginning to end his entire organization on earth being wiped out. Then, Satan himself becomes the focus of attention. The apostle John reports what happens next. (Read Revelation 20:1-3.) Jesus Christ—the “angel . . . with the key of the abyss”—will seize Satan and his demons, hurl them into the abyss, and keep them there for a thousand years. (Luke 8:30, 31; 1 John 3:8) That action constitutes the initial stage of the bruising of the serpent’s head. —Gen. 3:15.

    What will it mean for Satan to be in “the abyss”?

    What is “the abyss” into which Satan and the demons will be hurled? The Greek word a′bys·sos used by John means “very or exceedingly deep.” It is also translated “unfathomable, boundless,” and “the infinite void.” Thus, it is a place completely out of reach of anyone except God and his appointed angel “with the key of the abyss.” There, Satan will be in a state of deathlike inactivity so that “he might not mislead the nations anymore.” Truly, that “roaring lion” will be silenced!—1 Pet. 5:8.


    After these events, what time period will we enjoy?

    Significant developments and earthshaking events are ahead of us. We look forward to seeing how the saying of “Peace and security!” will come about. Then we will witness the destruction of Babylon the Great, the attack by Gog of Magog, the battle of Armageddon, and the hurling into the abyss of Satan and his demons. After these events, when all wickedness is gone, we will enter a new chapter in life—Christ’s Millennial Reign, during which we will enjoy an “abundance of peace.”—Ps. 37:10, 11. True, true peace and security, forever!

    I know that headline sounds completely outrageous. But it is actually true. The U.S. government is borrowing about 8 trillion dollars a year, and you are about to see the hard numbers that prove this. When discussing the national debt, most people tend to only focus on the amount that it increases each 12 months. And as I wrote about recently, the U.S. national debt has increased by more than a trillion dollars in fiscal year 2014. But that does not count the huge amounts of U.S. Treasury securities that the federal government must redeem each year. When these debt instruments hit their maturity date, the U.S. government must pay them off. This is done by borrowing more money to pay off the previous debts. In fiscal year 2013, redemptions of U.S. Treasury securities totaled $7,546,726,000,000 and new debt totaling $8,323,949,000,000 was issued. The final numbers for fiscal year 2014 are likely to be significantly higher than that.

      In 2011 john Williams was saying the government was really going into debt at a $5 trillion rate per year. Last year Williams (Shadowstats.com) said the real debt accumulated was $6.8 trillion. So $8 trillion today is not a stretch by any means my friend. Thank you for the posting.

    Greg, the title of this article ( ” The future of the Renminbi ” ) 10 hours ago pretty much says it all.
    Take a good look at this picture. I see solidarity between China, Russia, and the BRICS. How about you? The bigger question should be, how long can the dollar continue as reserve currency when these countries are solidifying a new trade platform right in front of us?

    • Silence is Golden

      Good post Jerry….
      The trillion dollar question is how quickly will the dollar die.
      I suspect these agreements are deliberate and piecemeal knowing full well that convertibility is still “welded to the hip of the USD” in the interim period.
      To have a sudden withdrawal of demand for USD would be catastrophic for all participants. Even then the demand will not go to zero. USD will still have some functionality albeit limited to less than the current 60-70% of world settlement.
      For those who are not awake…the implication is very dire for US citizens.
      It may not be a week/month/year….but it is manifesting itself to create untold hardship for every working American.

  34. aka_ces

    Greg, I’m sympathetic to your guest’s overall pov but have to say that in this interview he did not marshall much of an argument for it. For example, he emphasizes the similarity of this year’s silver chart to 2008, and suggests it’s an important omen. In actuality, silver and gold have regular, seasonal price patterns, and any given year can easily be considered analogous to another selected year. The actual price levels this year vs. 2008 are in the same general area, but their flows and levels are not the mirrors that Mannarino suggests.

  35. Brett

    Hi Greg,

    Would you be in agreement with me then by saying the “beheadings” of the journalists were false flag events? “Jihad John”…the British Muslim doing multiple knife strokes resulting in no blood at all before the fade to black, the failure to yell “Abu Akbar!” before he begins “beheading” (extremely important in any Muslim execution), and the fact that he is a lone messenger without any cronies to partake in the event all reek of a setup to gain support from the citizens of the west for war. And they got it, did they not? We are not bombing ISIS or ISIL or IS…we’re bombing Syria. This article backs up the financial war machine. The deception is that when we go to war we lose money because all of the costs behind it; when in reality it’s making the rich richer and keeping our economy “afloat”…which is another lie in and of itself.
