They Want to Get Rid of Cash – Lynette Zang

By Greg Hunter’s

Market analyst Lynette Zang says get ready for a “money standard shift.” A reset in how we buy and sell things is being put into place. Zang contends, “Look at the crypto currency area because they know that’s where they want to go. They have to take us there so they can get rid of cash, and they can control everything directly. . . . Generally speaking, all these new crypto coins that are coming out and are making lots of money and people marry that money because of nominal confusion, what is really happening is they are preparing us . . . for a money standard shift.”

Zang explains that the U.S. dollar has lost about 96% of its value since inception of the Federal Reserve, and its value is “nearing the bottom. . . . So, there is no place else to go but to digital currency,” says Zang.

On interest rates, Zang says with all the massive debt out there globally, rates cannot be allowed to rise, and central bankers “need interest rates to be negative.” Zang says, “Interest rates will not go up too much further because that will trigger the derivative market unless they are ready for the shift . . . because all that debt keeps coming due. It’s not like they are paying that debt off, they are just rolling it into additional debt. Rising interest rates will cost everybody more money.”

If rates go up to around 4%, Zang contends, “That would be a trigger and cause a derivative event that will implode all the markets.”

Zang says we are headed towards an undemocratic technocratic financial system. Zang explains, “Technocrats don’t care about people, they care about systems. That’s what the most important thing is. The formulas that guide all of those systems is not how a democracy works. . . . Essentially, what they are trying to do is get all wealth held in cyberspace and the title to all wealth held in cyberspace. Then the “Smart Contract” can immediately transfer that title. You can go to the mall and spend the equity in your house.”

Zang warns that central banks could make a big mistake and lose control quickly. Zang says, “They could lose control because it’s all about confidence. Why do they keep testing all of this confidence? People have been losing a lot of confidence in the governments and central banks. Why do they need a trustless system? They could lose control.”

Zang says every fiat currency will reset against gold and silver, and if it happened today, she estimates “gold would be more than $9,300 per ounce” and “silver would be more than $625 per ounce.”  Zang says, given all the unpayable debt in the world, those are conservative estimates.

    Ms Zang is a Rembrandt in a world of Picassos. Clear and insightful.

    • The Seer

      Ms Zang is better than most. I have yet to hear a sensible analysis for hard asset value in the future. It does not make sense to divide total world debt into above ground metal to come up with a per oz price. Some of the metal is indeed lost, some retained as jewelry,
      some for personal saving, some for central banks, some for banks, and other areas. I for one do not believe every last dollar of debt will rebalanced to metal prices. The phony manipulated system will just continue to morph into other systems for decades to come.
      Even the price of gold is a matter of agreement – a perceived value at the time. I do agree metal is something to have. I think there are cheaper easier things of value and for barter. Be careful when listening to those placing prices on metal in the next few years.
      No one can perceive it and a big flaw is to think all the debt will be accredited into the value per oz.

      • Charles H

        The phony system will morph to another… BINGO! And all the debt accredited to gold – is almost like splitting the first arrow with a second.

        The East WILL try to gain the high ground, through proving their reserves; and something HAS to back currency. PMs are then the least dirty shirts in the laundry?

  2. Nick in UK

    Got this from Barclays Bank (UK) this morning

    Dear Mr XXXXXX,
    We’re writing to let you know that we’ll be carrying out work on our systems, during which time our core services (Online Banking, Telephone Banking and our Mobile Banking app) will be unavailable. This work is required to prepare us for one of the reforms brought in by the UK government, called ring-fencing, which aims to strengthen the UK financial system. You can find out more details about these reforms below. The work will take place during one weekend each month, for five months (with the exception of December). They will start at 23:30 on a Saturday and typically complete around 15:30 Sunday afternoon. We’ll let you know the exact dates nearer the time through our app, online banking, or via SMS or email. The next time we carry out work where our core services will be unavailable will be the weekend from 23:30 on Saturday 19 August until 15:30 on Sunday 20 August. We know this may cause disruption and we’re sorry for any inconvenience. Which services will be unavailable? During the periods where we’ll be carrying out work on our systems, some core services will be affected. However, we’ll always let you know about these periods in advance so you can organise your banking.
    Services which will be affected: •   Online Banking   •   Mobile Banking app   •   Telephone Banking   •   Pingit   •   Transferring money into / out of your account. You can still continue to use the following services: •   Card payments (as long as you have enough funds in your account prior to the outage starting)   •   Cash machines – you can still withdraw cash and check your balance. Barclaycard services are not affected. Please remember •   If you need to transfer money into your account to use during our system outage, please ensure you do so before 23:30 on Saturday 19 August   •   Any money that’s transferred or paid into your account between 23:30 on Saturday to 15:30 Sunday will be added to your account as soon as possible after our work is finished. What’s UK ring-fencing and why are we making changes? Ring-fencing of day to day banking services is one of the reforms brought in by the UK government to strengthen our financial system following the financial crisis that began in 2008. Ring-fencing legislation requires each of the larger UK high street banks, including Barclays, to separate certain retail and smaller corporate banking activity and products, from more complex activity. In order to ring-fence our retail and business banking services, we need to make changes to our banking systems. These additional and longer outage periods are required to enable us to make those changes. If you want to find out more about ring-fencing, please search for ‘Barclays ring-fencing’ in your web browser. How will we keep you updated? Before our outage starts, we’ll always update you in the following ways: •   Service Status page – we’ll always update this page before and during our system outage, you can find it by searching ‘Barclays service status’ in your web browser.

    Not long until the sheep are “ring fenced” in my opinion.

    Expand your thoughts on how they could implement their digital system further.Perhaps a guaranteed universal income for qualifying individuals along with one payer health care and you can only use your digits at certain retail stores (think Wally World -groceries – car repair-bill pay-crypto currency only) and its total control over your life.They could also end up controlling the media if we loose the battle for free internet/ fake news. Thinking of all the sheeple that will never see this coming and embrace it as the latest and greatest thing to happen in their lifetime … Even so Lord come quickly so that you may find a few faithful servants.

    Excellent Greg! Many thanks.

    • Paul ...

      Good advice AA … why is it so many people won’t use their own money to buy and own real assets for themselves? … instead they fork over their money to a bankster cabal who simply hands you some electrons for your dollars … the banksters then take your dollars and buy real assets “in their name” … now why would anyone in their right mind allow the banksters to claim title to the real assets you could have easily bought for yourself? … instead the banksters get “the real assets” … and you get “some electrons on a computer” (called bit coin) … it just doesn’t make economic cents!!

      • Paul ...

        Now exactly why do the banksers need title to everything on Earth? .. is it because they know they can’t sell something without legal title to it?? … and who do they plan to sell everything on Earth to??? … do they need to “sell the Earth to aliens” for transportation to a new home among the stars (for their breakaway civilization) and therefore need legal tittle to every single thing on Earth????

        • Paul ...

          Don’t expect gold and silver to take off right away … the banksters want to buy gold and silver with the money you hand them for bit coins … it is going to take awhile to get everything digitized into electronic bits and sold to you for your cash … the banksters will then take that cash and buy physical gold and silver at artificially low manipulated prices … so gold and silver prices could “remain relatively cheap” until all the cash is sucked away from the common people by giving them “electronic bits” … however the higher the price they can get for their “electronic bits” the sooner all the cash will be drained from the common people … all that cash will then be used by the banksters to buy cheap gold and silver and hold title to it in their name … then when the re-set occurs … the common people will find it takes a million dollar bit coin to buy a gallon of milk while we silver stackers will be able to buy five (5) gallons of milk with a one ounce silver coin … so what is the better deal … buying a bit coin for $4000 dollars that rises to 1 million dollars that buys you one gallon of milk … or buying a one ounce of silver coin for $17 dollars that will buy you five gallons of milk!!

    Lynette Zang isn’t fooling anyone. Her anti crypto rap is pretty transparent. I feel bad for all the gold people they have companies to run and employees to pay. Are they really going to be objective…no.
    Anyone who is experiencing the total freedom from the system that Crypto’s provide knows she is dead wrong.
    I recently moved $2500 from my Scottrade account to my bank to get a money order to pay for sons college tuition. 30 year customer with First Citizens Bank. Had to wait 10 days, 2 trips to the bank and $75 for money order…….this is a Horse and Buggy system where the electronic banditos rob you along the way.
    This could be done privately 24/7 in less than 3 minutes for about a nickle. This is not slavery it is freedom.

    Thought provoking and information that I hear nowhere else and most of all it makes sense. Thank you Greg for having L. Zang back on, I don’t feel she was treated very nicely by our space in the past. Yes, she is new but who cares? Her message aligns with truth.

    One request: I would like to see a link to the chart she sometimes holds up showing that in Venezuela, gold is worth over 1,000,000 bolivar. When I do my research I see that gold is worth a bit north of 12,000 bolivar. What gives? Is that the black market price? If so why can’t people buy it and sell it on the black market and make a killing? I’d like to see that link please.

    • Petedivine

      I have family in Venezuela and am very familiar with the system. What you are seeing is the “official” rate. Unfortunately, you can’t buy gold at the official rate. You can’t buy much of anything at the official rate. The Bolivar price you see has had several zeros nocked off of it, and it was renamed the “new Bolivar” which then proceeded to continually devaluing at a hyperinflationary rate. I recall reading an article on zerohedge a couple weeks ago, where the Bolivar lost 16% of its value in one day. The real currency is the Dollar, although now even the Dollar can’t buy as much because there isn’t anything to buy. Example: No flour, therefore no bread, therefore it doesn’t matter how much money you have when there isn’t anything to consume.

    Hi Greg!

    Lynette is right that this technocratic system is going to sit on the back of all the peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues:

    Revelation 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels that had the seven bowls, and spake with me, saying, Come hither, I will show thee the judgment of the great harlot that sitteth upon many waters;

    Revelation 17:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the harlot sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

    This mother of the harlots is America who is “mystery Babylon” who has birthed many harlots across the globe both spiritually and economically:

    Revelation 17:5-6 and upon her forehead a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. (6) And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I wondered with a great wonder.

    The saints are those Christians who come out from this beast system that is an idol:

    2 Corinthians 6:16-18 And what agreement hath a temple of God with idols? for we are a temple of the living God; even as God said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. (17) Wherefore Come ye out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, And touch no unclean thing; And I will receive you, (18) And will be to you a Father, And ye shall be to me sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

    The true church will be proven and refined through the tribulation before Jesus takes the saints home:

    1 Peter 4:12-19 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial among you, which cometh upon you to prove you, as though a strange thing happened unto you: (13) but insomuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings, rejoice; that at the revelation of his glory also ye may rejoice with exceeding joy. (14) If ye are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are ye; because the Spirit of glory and the Spirit of God resteth upon you. (15) For let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or an evil-doer, or as a meddler in other men’s matters: (16) but if a man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God in this name. (17) For the time is come for judgment to begin at the house of God: and if it begin first at us, what shall be the end of them that obey not the gospel of God? (18) And if the righteous is scarcely saved, where shall the ungodly and sinner appear? (19) Wherefore let them also that suffer according to the will of God commit their souls in well-doing unto a faithful Creator.

    The harlots incorporate the many denominations that teach such silly lies as a pre trib rapture:

    Love in CHRIST! Rob

    • Charles H


      It really is a negligible matter of WHEN one crosses the Finish Line: when the true issue is to finish the race (‘run the race with patience’ of Heb. 12:1). So WHY you have to hammer a different viewpoint, by assigning a stigma to those who disagree with you – with such disagreeable language – I don’t understand. In fact, when one looks at the statement itself: you are calling MILLIONS of Christians “harlots” – which I simply cannot consider either Biblical or Christian. “The harlots incorporate the many denominations that teach such silly lies as a pre trib rapture”. At least harlots are agreeable in most matters: it is the ravenous wolves that go about attacking and tearing-up the flock. Let the readers decide – from your own words.

      • Rob

        Hi Charles!

        You must ask yourself why there are so many denominations with all their pet doctrines when there is only one truth. The letters to the seven churches in Revelation hold the key to that question:

        Isaiah 4:1 And seven women shall take hold of one man in that day, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name; take thou away our reproach.

        The word “teach” in the sentence you are referencing should to the trained reader prove who it is I am singling out as it is not the pew sitters but the pulpiteers:

        Matthew 23:15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he is become so, ye make him twofold more a son of hell than yourselves.

        For those who can extrapolate; what Jesus was accusing the scribes and Pharisees of was exactly what Paul was referring to in this passage about teachers today:

        2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure the sound doctrine; but, having itching ears, will heap to themselves teachers after their own lusts; (4) and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside unto fables.

        Love in CHRIST! Rob

        • Charles H


          I don’t follow you. You reference the letter to the Seven Churches: then jump to Isaiah? It seems here you are mixing and matching what belongs to Israel with the Church. They don’t mix.
          As to trying to diminish the damage of your insult towards denominations by re-defining your words – no dice. If you can’t own your words: don’t share them.
          As to your ‘extrapolation’ – all I can say is that you consistently evidence comparisons that don’t or shouldn’t be matched. Jesus Christ’s rebuke of the Pharisees (Matt. 23) – under hypocritical and murderous accussations: has nothing to do with the context of evangelical preaching to those who will only listen to the men and the messages they want to hear (2Tim4). Not only is this, again, an improper marriage of Scriptures, along the Israel/Church division; it is totally out of context as to how it applies. I think this insight of your extrapolation shows how far your mind stretches in order to form a thought. This is fallacious. You need to leave extrapolating alone.
          What I REALLY ask myself is – Why there is a consistent agreement among so many scholars and great preachers, for generations: and a newcomer can just show up and overturn them all, and in an uncharitable way. Besides – I am not the one coming here to teach, and draw others to another site. I only respond; and I don’t have a site.

          • Rob

            Hi Charles!

            I see you do not understand what Jesus said about “the scriptures cannot be broken”:

            John 10:34-35 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? (35) If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came (and the scripture cannot be broken),

            You keep trying to divide the church from Israel even though Paul through the Holy Spirit clearly said the Gentile believers in Christ are fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God who are the commonwealth of Israel:

            Ephesians 2:11-22 Wherefore remember, that once ye, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called Circumcision, in the flesh, made by hands; (12) that ye were at that time separate from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of the promise, having no hope and without God in the world. (13) But now in Christ Jesus ye that once were far off are made nigh in the blood of Christ. (14) For he is our peace, who made both one, and brake down the middle wall of partition, (15) having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; that he might create in himself of the two one new man, so making peace; (16) and might reconcile them both in one body unto God through the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: (17) and he came and preached peace to you that were far off, and peace to them that were nigh: (18) for through him we both have our access in one Spirit unto the Father. (19) So then ye are no more strangers and sojourners, but ye are fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God, (20) being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the chief corner stone; (21) in whom each several building, fitly framed together, groweth into a holy temple in the Lord; (22) in whom ye also are builded together for a habitation of God in the Spirit.

            If you truly understood that passage then you would truly understand this passage:

            1 Corinthians 10:11-12 Now these things happened unto them by way of example; and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages are come. (12) Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

            But your scriptureless replies prove you value your opinion more than what Father has to say. The OT clearly agrees with the NT in Spirit because the Word of the OT became the flesh of the NT and will always agree with Himself:

            John 1:14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father), full of grace and truth.

            Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and to-day, (yea) and for ever.

            Your doctrine requires you to look for a 3rd temple to be built in Jerusalem but just remember our Father will never dwell in any temple built by man’s hands:

            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;

            That simple fact shoots your theory full of holes that the abomination of desolation occurs in a physical temple because the believer whether Jew or Gentile is the commonwealth of Israel and the temple of God:

            1 Corinthians 3:16-17 Know ye not that ye are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? (17) If any man destroyeth the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, and such are ye.

            You had better start extrapolating because having leaven in your house will get you cut off:

            Exodus 12:15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.

            Those seven days spoken of in Exodus are the seven years of the Tribulation in the Spirit of the Word for those who have eyes to see:

            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.

            Love in CHRIST! Rob

            • Charles H

              If my comments are scarce in Scripture, but paraphrase important verses: this does not disqualify my assertions. So if someone comes along and quotes more than you: then that makes you wrong? Preposterous.
              Also – just as the born again Christian is the new man made from the Jew and Gentile: so is Grace from the Law. Both supersede and are SEPARATE. The potential Gentile world is grafted-in to the commonwealth of Israel by Grace through Faith in Jesus Christ; just as not all the Jews died in their Faith believing God would provide a Messiah – the Old Testament form of Grace. The Mosaic Law justified NOBODY: it as given to prove the whole world under Sin. The Promises pertaining to the Covenants to the Jews continue in parallel in time with the Church: but the Church has a better Covenant, a different one because the Jews reject Jesus Christ. Therefore what pertains to the Old Testament Jewish covenants, and the ‘better’ New Testament covent in the blood of Jesus Christ are DIFFERENT. There ARE distinctions. The Old Testament ‘saints’ are a TYPE of Jewish believer – which is fulfilled in the New Testament Christian. The O.T. covenants are with the NATION, the people, the race: and those outstanding conditions will be fulfilled separately, in the future, apart from the Church. The Church is as distinct from Israel, as Grace is from the Law. So, yes: it is in this BASIC spiritual distinction where you go wrong; just as you stated so in the comment above.
              The Bible is so plentious in material – it can be made to represent nearly unlimited variations on the theme: so it doesn’t matter how much you list. If one isn’t observing First Mention; progressive revelation;immediate context; and harmony of context and meaning – it cannot be “Rightly divided”. And your propensity to couple verses together which
              don’t belong together – as I have mentioned numerous times before – openly shows you are trying to make Scripture say what it is not supposed to mean.
              I’ve read your site: and your doctine on the Trinity, and ‘conditional’ Salvation are messed-up. (“Those who allow the Spirit of God to lead them in to the crucified life will be declared sons of God in their end”; “We receive by faith these promises from our Father but only those who actively walk in obedience to them as overcomers will be declared sons of God in our end”) Such is totally cultic language which impresses believers into a obedience/WORKS salvation: in DIRECT violation of Romans 11:6 & Eph. 2:8,9. I didn’t need to investigate further.
              Finally – I am not going to take Greg Hunter’s valuable resources; except when an occasion to defend sound doctrine arises.

              • Rob

                Hi Charles!

                Sorry but the old covenant is completely done away in Christ:

                2 Corinthians 3:14 but their minds were hardened: for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remaineth, it not being revealed to them that it is done away in Christ.

                There is only ONE olive tree called Israel that Gentile believers are grafted into since the resurrection of CHRIST:

                Romans 11:17 But if some of the branches were broken off, and thou, being a wild olive, wast grafted in among them, and didst become partaker with them of the root of the fatness of the olive tree;

                The Gentile believer is now Abraham’s seed through Christ as ONE olive tree that a careful study of Romans chapter 11 clearly proves:

                Galatians 3:28-29 There can be neither Jew nor Greek, there can be neither bond nor free, there can be no male and female; for ye all are one man in Christ Jesus. (29) And if ye are Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, heirs according to promise.

                I love how you cookie cutter college Christians quote Ephesians 2:8 and 9 but never seem to include verse 10:

                Ephesians 2:8-10 for by grace have ye been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; (9) not of works, that no man should glory. (10) For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God afore prepared that we should walk in them.

                Jesus is very clear in Matthew 25:31-46 that without the works of Christ NO one is going into the kingdom of God whether Jew or Gentile:

                Matthew 25:31-46 But when the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit on the throne of his glory: (32) and before him shall be gathered all the nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separateth the sheep from the goats; (33) and he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. (34) Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: (35) for I was hungry, and ye gave me to eat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink; I was a stranger, and ye took me in; (36) naked, and ye clothed me; I was sick, and ye visited me; I was in prison, and ye came unto me. (37) Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee hungry, and fed thee? or athirst, and gave thee drink? (38) And when saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? (39) And when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? (40) And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it unto one of these my brethren, even these least, ye did it unto me. (41) Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into the eternal fire which is prepared for the devil and his angels: (42) for I was hungry, and ye did not give me to eat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink; (43) I was a stranger, and ye took me not in; naked, and ye clothed me not; sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. (44) Then shall they also answer, saying, Lord, when saw we thee hungry, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? (45) Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not unto one of these least, ye did it not unto me. (46) And these shall go away into eternal punishment: but the righteous into eternal life.

                Jesus, Paul, Titus, and James didn’t have any trouble teaching that the good works of Christ are REQUIRED to complete salvation:

                Romans 2:6-11 who will render to every man according to his works: (7) to them that by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and incorruption, eternal life: (8) but unto them that are factious, and obey not the truth, but obey unrighteousness, shall be wrath and indignation, (9) tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that worketh evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Greek; (10) but glory and honor and peace to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek: (11) for there is no respect of persons with God.

                Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God; but by their works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

                James 2:14-18 What doth it profit, my brethren, if a man say he hath faith, but have not works? can that faith save him? (15) If a brother or sister be naked and in lack of daily food, (16) and one of you say unto them, Go in peace, be ye warmed and filled; and yet ye give them not the things needful to the body; what doth it profit? (17) Even so faith, if it have not works, is dead in itself. (18) Yea, a man will say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: show me thy faith apart from thy works, and I by my works will show thee my faith.

                Hebrews 5:8-9 though he was a Son, yet learned obedience by the things which he suffered; (9) and having been made perfect, he became unto all them that obey him the author of eternal salvation;

                Hmm imagine that; We are REQUIRED to obey Jesus for Him to author His salvation in us:

                John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath eternal life; but he that obeyeth not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him.

                Love in CHRIST! Rob

                  Well, these exchanges have turned out to be quite an education: for Greg Hunter and the readers, that is…
                  But I am glad this has finally drawn-out the very substantial errors to be exposed.

                  Owing to the wrong Bible you use: the language is changed which allows a reading and meaning that errs. “But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old Testament; which veil is done away in Christ.” 2Cor 3:14 KJV. The veil is a spiritual blindness, and has NOTHING to do with God’s covenant. Wrong Bible: wrong doctrine. You’ve fallen into a modern-day trap. In Christ – that blindness is not to Christians.
                  I also read through Romans Chapter 11: and absolutely NO MENTION of Abraham’s seed is made; except as the Apostle Paul personally identified with. The only way such material could appear is through your modern, changed, and errant Bible. And how you STITCH Gal.3:28,29 to Rom 11 – again shows how you mix and match verses which DON”T go together. THAT Galatians chapter deals with the relationshoip of the Law being a ‘schoolmaster’, tutelage, which engenderd bondage under the Law; in contrast to children of God by faith in Jesus Christ. And the whole point of “Abraham’s seed’ – from verse 11: ‘that seed is Christ’: and we are then by faith adopted into God’s family – following Abraham’s faith in God’s promise. Christianity is a spiritual seed, in the sense of adoption: not in the sense of replacing his lineage, the Jews.

                  Allow this cookie-cutter college Christian to explain English grammer for you. Verses 5 – 9 deal with the subject salvation (“by Grace ye are saved” is in verse 5); and verse 9 completes. Verse 10 shows a break in the narrative in SUBJECT, using the Preposition “For” that conjoins the new narrative of verse 11 using the “Wherefore” as a continuance to the end of the chapter. It cannot then be used as a defining article to a completed narrative: especially when it is used to introduce the last part of the chapter. Again, here – you place inordinate meaning or weight to something it should not contain. Works, works, works. If I stop at verse 9: it is because it is THE defining statement. It seems you pass-over verses 8 and 9 in order to get to the works you are looking for – and blow-off the previous verses; or set them in contradiction. There are NO good works TO Salvation: only after for proper service. But you have Salvation all wrong, and I’ll get to that.
                  Using Matt.25:31-46 – which, following a PARABLE, spoken to the Jews (under the Law); in the transitional earthly ministry of Jesus Christ (before the vicarious atonement of His death ushered in the Dispensation of Grace: is a FORESHADOWING, partial revelation, and rebuke warning. IT DOES NOT SUBSTANTIATE Salvation by works. Again you are all over the map here.

                  Salvation by Grace, through Faith. Those are the terms and operating principles (NOT OF WORKS). but YOU make a different claim. “Jesus, Paul, Titus, and James didn’t have any trouble teaching that the good works of Christ are REQUIRED to complete salvation.” This, sir: is another gospel. “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him the called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accused. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that we have received, let him be accursed.” Gal. 1:6-9.
                  Grace and Works are mutually EXCLUSIVE: they cannot mix or be combined. Grace mixed with works FORFEITS Grace. Again – the BIBLE SPECIFIES: “Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of GRACE. And if by grace, THEN IT IS NO MORE OF WORKS: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. Rom.11:5,6 (emphasis mine). By insisting that “the good works of Christ are REQUIRED to complete salvation”: you FORFEIT the gospel of Grace (by Faith) and preach another gospel (of added works) – one the Bible itself warns against. You are deceived, confused; and in real big spiritual trouble with God. And under the conditions you yourself expound: even YOU are NOT Saved: and therefore cannot have Holy Spirit indwelling spiritual discernment – which explains a lot why you are so off and all over the place. You can’t be preaching another gospel; be right with God; have Holy Spirit indwelling, that seals you until the day of redemption – and be doing the “works of Christ”! There isn’t even the phrase in the New Testament containing the words “works of Christ”! The closest is John 6:29 – “This is the work of God, that you believe upon him whom he has sent.”
                  Your exegesis of Heb.5:8,9 is WRONG. His authorship is NOT based on our obedience. The obedience this signals is ‘believing from the heart God raised him from the dead.’ You are twisting EVERYTHING to fit a narrative based on a false and foregone conclusion!

                  Rob – If you came from some ‘Baptistic’ background, apparently you didn’t get Saved there – or you wouldn’t be spewing this other, false gospel. You associated enough with a cultic figure to post a link to his material: which is patently FALSE. And now you seem to distance yourself from him with your own semi-anonymous site – yet seem to be carrying-on or carrying forward the cultic same errors. Though you are 100% sincere and convinced that you got what’s right: but you are yet outside the Grace of God, and not bound for Heaven at all. Worst of all – you are intent on dragging toward Hell a bunch with you. I grieves me to see someone so deeply deceived, and earnestly zealous – but so are the Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses. They, too, absolutely believe and are sincere as the day is long: but they are wrong.
                  “Verily, verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Verily, verily, I say nto thee, Except a man be born of water (childbirth) and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said into thee, Ye must be born again.”

                    Hi Charles!

                    The ASV that I am using to post verses is a much more literal translation than the KJV though I use both :o)

                    Sorry again but the old covenant has been done away in Christ and here is a second witness since your KJV translation didn’t get 1 Cor. 3:14 right:

                    Hebrews 8:6-13 But now hath he obtained a ministry the more excellent, by so much as he is also the mediator of a better covenant, which hath been enacted upon better promises. (7) For if that first covenant had been faultless, then would no place have been sought for a second. (8) For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, That I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah; (9) 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.

                    I actually feel sorry for you souls that can not see the correlation between such books as Romans and Galatians where Paul who is writing to a majority of Gentiles in both churches calls them “children of promise” inferring they are Abraham’s seed as one olive tree:

                    Galatians 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise.

                    You keep trying to excuse most of what Jesus said in the 4 gospels as something only intended for the physical Jews but Paul made it very clear that “ALL scripture” is profitable for doctrine:

                    2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (17) That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

                    If you truly understood what God means when He says “ALL scripture” is to make the man of God perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works you wouldn’t be trying to turn grace into lasciviousness:

                    Jude 1:4 For there are certain men crept in privily, even they who were of old written of beforehand unto this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

                    The entire NT is for the express purpose of teaching us to walk as Jesus purifying ourselves through His Father’s Word:

                    1 John 2:4-6 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; (5) but whoso keepeth his word, in him verily hath the love of God been perfected. Hereby we know that we are in him: (6) he that saith he abideth in him ought himself also to walk even as he walked.

                    1 John 3:3-6 And every one that hath this hope set on him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. (4) Every one that doeth sin doeth also lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. (5) And ye know that he was manifested to take away sins; and in him is no sin. (6) Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither knoweth him.

                    Those 1 John passages are not requests but commands but you will just ignore them just like you did Romans 2:6-11 passage that I posted above because it does not fit your cookie cutter college Christian narrative but just remember we will all be justified only in our words that totally agree with “ALL scripture”:

                    Romans 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be found true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy words, And mightest prevail when thou comest into judgment.

                    Love in CHRIST! Rob

                    “If I truly understood Scripture.” ?!?? NO.
                    No amount of proof, or reproof, or substantiation will ever get through. My wife, who has reviewed key replies – thinks you cannot possibly be a Christian: and I agree. You place yourself right into Scripture that describes apostate teachers – 2Timothy 3:7 – “Ever learning and never able to come to a knowldge of the truth.”
                    Just like what the Leftist Liberals are doing: deny validity of argument;baselessly accuse the criticism; then move on to different ground to denigrate, thus overwheling the narrative. Blah, blah, blah – it never ends. ‘In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin…” You can baffle them with all the goobledy-gook endlessly, like you do with me here: but before God – you are wrong. Your exegesis is horrific; your interpretation on the Trinity is so bad it causes me to wonder if you even know Him; and your doctrine on salvation amounts to heresy and another gospel, as it is convoluted and contradicts clear Bible teaching.
                    I won’t take up more space or Mr. Hunter’s resources. What I’ve written in rebuttal is enough to show reason and damnable error. I won’t correct your posts at length anymore; but I will point out your fallacies in brief, as needed.

                  • Rob

                    Hi Charles!

                    Did you ever notice the difference between our posts? I simply follow Father’s very clear format for seeking His concealed deeper truth that weans a babe in Christ such as yourself off the milk of the Word and hopefully into some meat that matures one into a full grown son of God:

                    Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing; But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.

                    Isaiah 28:9-10 Whom will he teach knowledge? and whom will he make to understand the message? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts? (10) For it is precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, there a little.

                    Hebrews 5:12-14 For when by reason of the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need again that some one teach you the rudiments of the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of solid food. (13) For every one that partaketh of milk is without experience of the word of righteousness; for he is a babe. (14) But solid food is for full grown men, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern good and evil.

                    There is a reason Father hid His deeper message as line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little and you proved it very clearly in your last post :o)

                    Love in CHRIST! Rob

                    You are a broken record – flawed and skipping, skipping, skipping: and you can’t see yourself.
                    The difference between our posts others WILL see what you cannot.
                    In completely discounting my responses: you lose all credibility; and can’t see that either. ‘The rabbi who praises himself: has a comgregation of one.’

                  • Greg Hunter

                    Charles and Rob,
                    Let’s all agree to disagree and at least acknowledge we are playing for the same team and move on. We have big things in front of us all and let’s just support each other.

                  • Charles H

                    Dear Greg,

                    I am stopping the confrontation, of my own decision – and well before your comment here.
                    I must point out this critical issue: Rob and I are NOT ON THE SAME TEAM. I have and will not go behind anyone’s back – so I answer here.

                    Apparently you do not follow the details of the exchanges between Rob and I; or do not have the spiritual depth to recognize the importance of my arguments. Like the Jehovah’s Witnesses, which you do acknowledge a danger to – Rob disseminates doctrine that sounds good: but is heretical. It took a long time and more space than I ever wished to use – but he finally spelled-out the error: “Jesus, Paul, Titus, and James didn’t have any trouble teaching that the good works of Christ are REQUIRED to complete salvation”. And “Hmm imagine that; We are REQUIRED to obey Jesus for Him to author His salvation in us”. This is mixing works with grace, which forfeits grace. It is like the Catholic Church obligating the sacraments and misas to mix with Faith to get to Heaven.

                    Partly because ALL true Believers are enjoined to contend for sound doctrine and refute heresy – I have reproved Rob in detail – in order to PROVE the fallacy of his teaching; and partly because I have been defending USAWD from spiritually dangerous posers – I took the time and effort to state that which is Biblically true, so that readers would not just be informed of the error; but have understanding of WHY the error is wrong.

                    Two main fallacies are expounded by Rob in his doctrine. One is that following his formula for salvation; people won’t get saved, and Jesus Christ won’t recognize them in judgment. The other is that ‘spiritual leaders’ like Rob will dictate to followers all the obedient works they must do to qualify – “doing the works of Christ”. This can build a big cultic church, because WHO CAN TELL WHEN YOU HAVE DONE ENOUGH?

                    I am really disappointed. If you have only parsed our comments and haven’t really studied them: shame on you. The “spiritual warfare” contained in Rob’s and my exchanges are really high level, state-of-the-art stuff. All I can say at this point is – consider the backgrounds. I am Baptist start to finish; what is Rob? Look at the language in the comments – who is serious and who ridicules? And finally – look at the doctrine, or get your pastor to analyze it (as I have before encouraged).

                    I have no problem letting ones like Rob on your site, who use clickbait to theirs. I do have a problem when I realize that false teachings, that are so well counterfeited, that it is hard to see the errors – appears in pubic forum; and knowing the finality of such will ultimately have souls missing Heaven.

                    You have my sincerest apologies for taking up so much space and resources. But I will not excuse you for lumping me in with the likes of Rob. WE ARE NOT ON THE SAME SPIRITUAL SIDE; or ‘playing for the same team’, as you put it. No hard feelings here, Greg. But you are caught with your spiritual pants down here.

                  • Greg Hunter

                    Thank you Charles for taking the time to put this in one succinct post.

                    Sorry for the late reply but I was down at the Christian school . . . (This is Greg Hunter. Please stop, it’s over. I let this go on too long. Thank you for being understanding and for supporting USAW.)

                  • Rob

                    Greg Why would you allow Charles to have a final comment after he ridiculed you but not post my final thoughts on the subject when I tried to take this to an email and he refused. I never once commented on any post and certainly not one of Charles posts but he continually replied to the few post I put on USAWD. You could have easily posted my entire post and then put your request at the end but the way you cut my post off with out leaving me defend myself against Charles baseless accusations is not fair and balanced reporting :o(

                    Love in CHRIST! Rob

                  • Greg Hunter

    Greg: Listening to Ms Zang talk about Technocracy brings to mind Patrick Wood. He has written about Technocracy for over 20 years I believe he would be a great interview on Technocracy and its implications. He would reinforce what Ms Zang is talking about.

    Thank you for what you do.

    Great interview Greg.
    Ordinarily I don’t disagree with Lynette on anything, but according to my sources we don’t have much time left. The IMF just downgraded the United States again, and will most likely take away its reserve currency status in October.
    Currently over 76 countries have had their currencies revalued in the IMF basket. With the Federal Reserve Bank scheduled to officially end QE (money printing) and clear its balance sheets by the end of September, it should be obvious what is about to happen.

    I do agree, that when the time comes unless you are prepared to be self reliant and are debt free, you will voluntarily sign on to a digital controlled system to continue your way of life. Its just a matter of time.

    • Jerry

      Its not hard to figure out why the United States will loose reserve currency status to China once you see the numbers.
      America is a debtor nation and the IMF is not going to risk loosing China’s money flowing into its basket of currencies when they meet in October. If the IMF doesn’t make the switch soon China and over 85 member countries now part of the AIIB will break away from the IMF and World bank. Count on it. As Lynette says the China didn’t build a quantum satellite for no reason. They will bypass SWIFT and use CIPS if they need to,

        Let’s say you are completely right this time. Let’s say the October changeover happens. I say it backfires when the chaos this move will engender engulfs the world. Best always. PM

          I was raised by my grandparents who went through the depression in dust bowl Oklahoma. I know all to well the implications of what we face. I doubt seriously many here do. The common theme of today is “we’ll deal with it when it happens”. That is the song of death. You will only get one chance to get it right so make the most of it with the time you have left. Many wonder about the timing. Does it matter if you’re not prepared? My grandparents told me about how their neighbors thought they were stupid for owning their own land instead of living high on the hog during the roaring twenties. And then they showed up at their door asking for food. Yep. Nothings changed here. I still read the skeptics on this site daily. My condolences go out to them.

            Paul Ryan and many others have proven to be wolves in sheep’s clothing. I don’t know how Trump has put up with it this far. If I were him Id just give up.

                Maybe you are taking too much for granted. God’s ways are unknowable to man. A mystery. I suspect God just determined (intervened) so Hillary Clinton Lost. No matter how much the Democrats cheated, no matter how much money or media she had behind her, she still Lost. A miracle? That’s the way they happen. You can not prove them. Its taken on faith.

        I’ve said before – if the US won’t play fair – the BRICS will hand the (sandlot base-) ball to the West and say – we won’t play your game anymore. The US and Europe are disintegrating; if the world splits into a bi-polar economic system – the West will crash and burn.

            I really hope you do well, Frederick – you are a decent sort. Likely your area will turn East and do much better than where the US has it’s claws into.

    • Mike R

      Sorry, but you are highly mistaken if you think some arbitrary body can ‘take away’ reserve currency status. That is an impossibility. Any nation that wants to maintain their currency as ‘reserve currency’ and not just a trading currency, MUST maintain and run a deficit. Period. China could not have it’s currency simply be ‘annointed’ a reserve currency by the IMF or any other governing body, until it completely changed the make up of its economy (meaning importing way more than they export), which would take many many years to accomplish. Further that deficit has to be HUGE and commensurate in size in terms of global demand for that country’s currency.
      See the attached article by Charles Hugh Smith for some further layman education in the topic, and that way you can understand at least a little bit better about what a reserve currency truly is, and the implications, before you espouse or share some links about what you have come to an incredibly stretch conclusion on
      There is zero mention and zero inference that could come from that article that the IMF could ‘take away’ the US’s reserve currency status. Ain’t.Gonna.Happen. Demand for USD’s by the way remains HUGE, no matter what anyone believes, and its relative strength or weakness in any given year that varies, and ebbs and flows with the global economy, simply does not convey the magnitude of how embedded the USD is in world trade. The dollar falling a little bit against any basket is really miniscule in the big picture. Any country can SAY they want to get away from the USD, but the practicality of such is a wet dream for many. There simply is very little alternative, and its going to be that way for a long long long time. The ONLY possible short term event that could change that time period, would be a WWIII, and China and the US nuking each other, and 75% of each countries population and industries being wiped out. The entire world would have to start over. And some country would have somehow ‘shoulder’ the weight of the world, and re-start it. If you think an India or Russia or whoever would be left from such a WW, could do that, you would be highly underestimating the nature and structure of world finance that is currently based on the USD remaining at least 60% of the world’s currency reserves. China cannot come anywhere close to do that, as they have a negative net wealth, despite years of double digit growth, as that was all funded through massive debt creation. (tens of trillions.) They can’t even support their own population, let alone the world. They are hugely dependent upon the world, to generate enough demand for their goods, because despite their massive population they simply don’t consume anywhere close to the amount of goods and services their own country produces. If they loose the exports, in particular the US, they all will mostly die off, if not sent back to the caveman era for good. Thats how precarious China’s position is in the world. They’ve compounded their problems by the ambition of their communist rulers, attempting to artificially acceleration their entire economy to move their entire population up from way below what our poverty level is here today, with a population 3 times the size of ours. Nice dream, but its failing miserably, and you don’t see that because they totally hide it from all western media, and totally control all that we can ever see. Even social media can’t crack into what’s really going on there. After China, there is not even a close second in terms of an ‘economy’, that is not highly fragmented, until you get to the ‘faux’ body of the EU that attempts to pretend it has a collective ‘GDP’. Of the EU, Germany is the only country that has any semblence of a real economy. Most people in our country are so incredibly naive about how the US simply dwarfs the rest of the world in terms of its currency power, and economic engine, which is heavily intertwined due to our extremely powerful multinationals, who themselves have benefitted immensely from our maintaining US reserve currency status, and a majority portion of all reserve currencies in existing. There’s a lot of things we may not like about our government, or our taxes, or our politics, that we an all knock on a daily basis. But until you comprehend the real magnitude of our global reach and power, you will not likely be able to make even close educated guesses about what the IMF may do, or not do, or how our currency may go up or down, or even possibly collapse. You don’t want to, and can’t even imagine what would happen if our currency collapsed. It would be a world wide catastrophe that no other country would survive, and while it would hurt us pretty bad, rest assured the magnitude of pain on every other country in the world would be 10x to 100x worse than ours. Gold would not ‘save’ anyone in that instance. Bitcoin is laughable to even be in that dialogue as ‘an alternative’ as is any ‘crypto-currency.’ Ms. Lang is playing upon the ignorance of the audience here, which is ashame, as there are some things that she says that could be worthwhile.

        Do your homework. Its happening now inside our banking system.
        Who do you think Hank Paulsen met with in 2008 to keep the banks from crashing? FYI…..Bretton Woods = IMF= Reserve Currency Status.

        Mike R,
        “Any country can SAY they want to get away from the USD, but the practicality of such is a wet dream for many. There simply is very little alternative,”
        Euro was very close to be the alternative back on 2011 until the Goldman Sachs/CIA Financial Seal’s time bomb (Greece) blew up in the EU face, any country which said they want to get away from the dollar has been blown to smithereens.
        China doesn’t want to replace the dollar with the yuan. They understand the pro & con of the reserve status and they don’t want the responsibility. Hence they are supporting the SDR as an alternative to the dollar.
        If China were spearheading the implementation of the SDR without the consent of the Deep State, they better be prepared for chaos and mayhem.

          The dollar’s world reserve statues is still largely dependent on Saudi Arabia selling oil in dollars. What happens when China makes S. Arabia a better offer?

        • Tin foil hat

          We are observing a gladiators’ dance in the modern day (financial) Colosseum.
          In one corner, we have the Federal Reserve DOLLAR System, Soros, the Clintons, Bushs, McCain and certain high ranking members of the intelligence community, etc. – the Anglo-American contenders.
          And in this corner, we have the international banking and generational wealth interests, the BIS, IMF and World Bank – The Internationals
          The so called DEEP STATE is more aligned with the new money Anglo-Americans. Trump and the BIS Internationals are on the opposing side.
          Most Trump supporters see Trump as a defender against the globalist. It can be confusing, because both the Anglo American dollar faction and the BIS Internationals want globalism, they just want it under their control.
          China is just one of the pieces in this transition. CIPS, AIIB and the Shanghai Gold Exchange are merely their lifeboats. BIS/IMF’s SDR is the cruise ship which the Chinese ultimately want to board.
          Trump is preparing us for this change by promoting manufacturings, apprenticeship programs …etc, as the Deep State is trying their best (magical stock/bond markets) to manage the challenges of the American Empire due to its dollar system fatigue. However, allowing the dollar to pretend to manage this global bankruptcy of governments merely accelerates its own demise – it will extinguish itself through the lack of foreign support that comes with “identity politics”. A symptomatic dilemma perhaps as problematic as Triffin’s. A single nation advantage of managing the wealth reserve of all nations is fatally flawed because it gives rise to its own power agenda.
          The BIS/IMF’s plan is to have a supra sovereign wealth reserve and unit of account under the BIS/IMF system, which “bails out” the sovereigns, including China, in a managed bankruptcy instead of World War III.

    I tried to buy a bitcoin two months ago when it was $2,700, but coinbase wouldn’t allow me. It is now over $4,000. You can buy goods directly from China, but they won’t accept U.S. currency. They will accept bitcoin however. 9/11 marked the beginning of a plan to have everyone receive a chip implant. This will separate real Christians from fake ones. A Christian is not permitted to surrender their freewill and sell their soul to the devil. If 80% of the population gets chipped, the remainder will be chipped by force. Your bank account will be on the chip. Not only can it be erased, but you can be physically punished or even terminated. I don’t want to be a zombie. Chip me not!

    (For those who may not understand bitcoin, it is one of many online currencies known as cryptocurrencies. It is not physical, and cannot function without the internet. When you have an audio file or a video file, you can make as many copies as you want and send one to all of your friends. Block chain technology allows just one copy of a file. If you send it to someone, you lose it. This is perfect for creating online currencies which appears to be the wave of the future.)

    • Mike R

      Robert. I buy goods now directly from China for my business here. I buy them using US Dollars. I don’t need Bitcoin to do that. Chinese companies of all shapes and sizes, gladly will accept US Dollars. If they want to ‘exchange’ them for Yuan, they can do so in their own country very easily. Many do not however, as they consider the USD a far better store of value, due to its Reserve Currency status.

  16. Marvin Double

    This interview with Lynette Zang is very important for a number of reasons. Zang offers a highly credible big picture overview which really does connect all the dots. Her explaination of what is being done to crash the current financial system globally and by whom really is “golden.” Most importantly Lynette is an excellent communicator. She has the gift of taking large complicated issues and making them simpler to understand for lay people. In that regard she helps level the field and reduce the knowledge gap between the wealthy and the rest of us. If knowldge is power Zang has made all your viewers a little stronger. Many thanks Greg for your dedicated effort to give people like Lynette Zang a platform and the opportunity to share what she knows.

    Thanks Greg, another great interview.

    As for confidence in the central bank system, I was late to the party but my “faith” in the central banks went over the cliff in 2008. Others who were more tuned in saw it way earlier than me.

    We’ll see how the coming iteration of the global financial system goes, but I for one will not voluntarily enter a digital monetary system. We as a people are ceding way too much control of our lives to bureaucrats and now technocrats. Think “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”

    I’ve got a degree in engineering from way back and at the time, machines and technology in general served man (I use that term to mean men and women). It seems this new system is being described as to serve a few elite and the rest of us will serve the system. Put a layer of machine between we the people and the wannabe overlords.

    HI Greg and another excellent interview with Lynette Zang! Over the last few months I’ve noticed an increase in the written assaults on those who profess their faith in Jesus Christ. Now, some will probably comment about my saying this but that is okay since I had to cancel a Twitter account directly attributable to this discourse. With the criminal elite moving humanity ever closer to a single world currency one with any ability to reason will recognize this as eventually converting into the “Mark of The Beast”. Without risking being identified as an anti-Semite one could look around and see the entire convergence is being played out by modern day Sadducees and the Pharisees who control the global finances. Who would have thunk it? And many will laugh at these thoughts but the reality is that Revelation 13:16-18 will and is coming to past as we observe daily events. As always, thanks for your continued production of exceptional journalism.

    • Paul ...

      Alan … at the risk of being called anti-Semitic I’m calling out Soros as a neocon sympathizer … it doesn’t matter that he is a Jew … he turned over more then 10,000 Jews to Hitler to be burned in death camps … now he is behind a movement to call Trump a Nazi?? … irrespective of religion people must be judged by what they do … why is Netanyahu (another neocon sympathizer) supporting ISIL terrorists who are chopping off Christian heads??

    Great interview. Zang’s insights are invaluable and right-on.
    Greg can you, at some point, marry the insights from Clif High about cryptos being a safe store of wealth, and virtually impervious to hacking….to the fact that big money has already started moving the crypto market (manipulating it), and Zang’s analysis that cryptos are really just a more centralized and organized form of control of our assets?

    I am inclined to side with Zang, despite High’s accurate price predictions. I think something more nefarius could be at work with the crypto craze!

    For your review. Video showing the Charlottesville victim is not a victim.

    • Tin foil hat

      Charlottesville act of terror could be an accident.

      “Witnesses said moments before the car plowed into the crowd, a counter-protester had allegedly thrown a rock at the car, causing the driver to swivel around and ram into people and two cars in its way.”

      I found the above info in the UK Daily Mail. I believe he was slowing down with his foot on the brake from the point where he passed the camera to where he passed the man with the black motorcycle helmet. The man, who likely threw the rock, could be seen standing i/f/o a row of motorcycles in the video but not in the picture.. The picture clearly shows the brake lights were lit. The time which the photo was taken seems to be at the moment right before the camera swung back up from the floor. In the video, you can see the brake lights, in slow motion, as the car passed the camera.
      I’m confident to say that the driver had his foot on the brake for at least 3 seconds before he got spooked. Anyway, Trump made the right call yesterday – nobody has all the facts!.

      The picture I’m referring to is the fifth photo in the article showing the rear license plate and brake lights. The link doesn’t work.

      • Tin foil hat

        My bad, I look at the video again. I think the reason he stepped on the brake briefly is because of the speed bump. That explains the noise which I thought originated from the rock hitting his car.
        Oh well, I guess he is going to get the chair.

    Glad your site is working, Greg. I was a little worried about you, keep up the good work.
    “Zang says we are headed towards an undemocratic technocratic financial system.”
    I think we have been there for a long time and what we have moved into is a blatantly fascist system run by oligarchs and the deep state. Jimmy Carter told us two years ago that the US is an oligarchy.
    I know the banksters want to eliminate cash, but I have to wonder if there aren’t enough illegal operations that depend upon cash that this process will be prevented. I do think that it will be very difficult to get many of the deplorables to accept this.
    I believe that it if it is impossible to drain the swamp, then we should divorce ourselves from it. To hell with the Federal government; the people who run Washington could care less about ordinary people, they will never end their endless wars with a trillion dollar annual military budget (one million, million dollars a year). It is time to secede from the Union, to form regional governments that use our tax dollars to rebuild the US rather than destroy the nations of the world in the name of “freedom and democracy”.

    Great guest Greg! Something is definitely brewing. The Billionare Club of big money hedge funds are signalling a shift in their investment strategies; Jim Rickards,Pento, Mannirino, and Zang to name a few are sounding the alarm bell. High Debt, sluggish economy , cultural disease, a hugely divided electorate and a mob-like hatred by elitists including media and academia for President Trump all point to a catastrophic scenario playing out. This , combined with increasing world tension paints a worrisome time ahead. Biblical prophesies right before our eyes! Get some Gold and especially Silver and remember to keep the faith!

  33. Russ

    Thank you Greg, Lynette is so knowledgeable and articulate. She mentions that gold and silver can go to $9,300 per ounce, and silver to $625 per ounce (or more!). My question is when all wealth is held in cyberspace, what happens to the equity shares that you hold – specifically the PM mining shares (not the general equity market). At those levels, precious metals miners should (will) be significantly higher in price and value. The rate of return of mining share ownership should (would) dwarf the rate of return of the physical metal. Additionally, is it safe to leave those shares with your brokerage company, or should one put those shares with the transfer agent (out of the brokerage house) or better yet in certificate form? I wonder if Lynette advocates owning solid PM shares as well as the actual physical metal. If so, what ratio mining shares to physical? Or, maybe the governments will take over the miners? Please think about having a guest (or maybe even Lynette) that can discuss PM mining share ownership (how much if any versus physical, and in what form – brokerage, transfer agent, or certificate) given the future that Lynette is laying out. Thank you for everything you do for us! I have a hard time waiting for your next interview……

    • Charles H


      As long as Mining Shares are gold in the ground – when the SHTF – nationalization of ‘resources’ could stop most the industry. China keeps all they mine; and they are the model now?

      You simply instruct your brokerage to move your shares to ComputerShares for
      direct registration and from there can get certificates. This way your holdings are
      on the mining company books and not subject to confiscation from your brokerage
      general fund.

    Hi Greg! Thank you so much for having Ms. Zang on and explaining the new system. I hope she can come back often. Have you heard of Patrick Wood? He talks about Technocracy all the time. Here is his website:

    Keep up the good work!!


  38. Dr Darryl Jewett

    examples of how wrong a technocracy can go is the systems of family law and child support. everything works great. the algorithms are perfect. and they’re executed perfectly. for trafficking children to transfer the proceeds of a man’s labor to the mother in exchange for votes and absolute power. while the man is condemned to poverty and short life expectancy. it’s slavery. and extermination. when I think of technocracy, I think of code enforcement. codes only work 5-10% of the time. in all other instances, they’re either just a mechanism to generate revenue for those in charge… those addicted to power, or they compromise the integrity of our infrastructure. the codes aren’t just worthless but they’re destructive. child support and family law the same. what a mess. and these systems are designed for anyone’s best interest but those in power. to satisfy their addiction to power and control. best interests of the children is just a senseless aphorism. a sanctimonious platitude. for disguising addiction to power and control. yes, our global government is trying to digitize everything. that means control everything. it’s an addiction. a paranoid and delusional obsession. control is an illusion. it’s better to try and understand everything. that’s impossible but at least it’s not as destructive as controlling. it’s an endless pursuit of the truth. a more constructive alternative to power. that requires patience, conscience and responsibility. there’s two kinds of people in the world: people who want to understand everything and people who want to control everything because they are incapable of understanding. guess what technocrats are.

  39. Dr Darryl Jewett

    technocrats don’t care about systems. they care about satisfying their addiction to power and control. they only care about systems as long as those systems allow them to satisfy their addiction to power and control. once the system no longer satisfies their addiction to power and control, they don’t care about it anymore. except to rid themselves of it.

    From the outside the US looks like it is well on the way to dissolving into mayhem and chaos. Good is bad, male is female, up is down, fraud is profit, lies are reporting. Perhaps the Mayans were right and we underwent a pole shift in 2012…
    It is hard to spot any sanity here let alone think it might predominate. The county becomes more conflicted and dysfunctional and more of an embarrassment on the international stage each day. I can only anticipate a horrible outcome when the economic reckoning arrives. There should be no excuses made when that happens however because it has been both willed by a sick elite and enabled by default by the inaction of those who knew better and did nothing useful.
    It is hard to believe the Bush’s , Jamie Dimon and Larry Summers today calling out Trump for wrong over Charlottesville when these guys ought to be swinging from trees for their own conduct. In a functional society these guys wouldn’t be able to go out in public in fear of retribution let alone mouth off like their opinion was worth hearing.
    If there is to be a civil war in America they better get on with it because there is much to do and little time to do it. I would say for each month that goes by now without someone taking bold action to restore law and fiscal order there will ultimately be another million dead in the streets. Enough spectating, people need to get serious about righting their country as soon as possible else the outcome will be grim indeed and indeed it may be permanently ruined.

  41. Flattop

    GREG; All of your guests say we should buy silver and gold. Please help us by asking what denominations we should hold. Bars, rounds, coins, or all of the above. Also is it still smart to hold cash under the mattress?

    • Greg Hunter

      Many have told me for most people to hold coins and not rounds. If you are very wealth you should be vaulting numbered bars. If you are an average investor just hold U.S. minted gold and silver coins. Some have told me to hold them the way it comes out of the ground. for every one ounce of gold you should have 10 ounces of silver. You should hold cash too because it will work really well for a short amount of time if the system goes down.

      • RichM

        Why not 1 oz. rounds?

        • Greg Hunter

          Advantages of Owning Coins vs Bars
          Still another advantage for coins–multiple ounce bars cannot be broken up. You are forced to sell the entire bar if you want to liquidate—it’s all or nothing. With coins, you can sell small, medium or large quantities when you want to cash out.

          Yet another advantage of coins over bars is their acceptability. Once again, coins are better than bars because bars (small or large) do not carry the same prestige as a minted coin. Even when prices rise dramatically, coins will likely be accepted without question or assay. An assay is a scientific measurement of the amount of gold in a coin or bar.

          In short, base your purchase on the future sale of the gold price or silver price, not saving a few bucks on premiums (or commissions) when you buy. Here’s another way to look at it. If you decided to sell some of your gold at $10,000 per ounce, what do you think would be more desirable: a Gold Eagle or a stamped 1 ounce bar? The Gold Eagle will win out every time. That does not mean that a 1 ounce bar is not valuable—it is. It is just not as valuable or sellable as a 1 ounce coin. Think of the “sell” when you buy, and pay a little more for quality. If you are buying gold or silver–buy coins. (If you are a beginner, I do not recommend proof coins because it’s easy for the beginner to pay too much for them.) The entire article I wrote is here:

          In my opinion rounds produced by major silver producers are fine As long as they are .999 pure Silver they will have good purchasing power if TSHTF

          • Greg Hunter

            You are correct, but you are missing my point. If silver does go to some crazy price, a Silver Eagle or Maple Leaf will not require an assay. These coins would be easier to use. Therefore paying an extra buck or two commission would be worth it, and who would care if your silver went to $500 per ounce or higher.

            • This Sceptered Isle

              In the UK silver Britannia coins are capital gains tax free which means that should the price of silver go to a crazy price you would not have to pay capital gains tax. I assume the same applies to silver eagles in America. Of course governments could change the goal posts and make capital gains tax applicable to these coins retrospectively.

    Concerning what Lynette Zang said about the amount of derivatives, at the 8:13 mark she said that there WAS 1.48 quadrillion in total derivatives before they changed the accounting procedure. I would like to ask Lynette who she is referring to when she said THEY changed the accounting procedure? Also just how many years ago was this and what was the amount of total derivatives changed to? I saw articles from way back to 2010 that said that there were 1.5 quadrillion in derivatives though they provided no evidence of such a high amount. Some people in the ALT media have said that the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) used to report 1.2 quadrillion in derivatives but then they cut the number in half to 600 billion. That is not true. The BIS has NEVER reported the total amount of derivatives even over 1 quadrillion. I checked as did Bob Moriarty of 321Gold.

    According derivatives expert Rob Kirby, he stated a week ago that there has been a SIGNIFICANT reduction in the total amount of derivatives outstanding in the last 3 years.

    Rob Kirby’s statement is at the 14:40 mark.

    I emailed Rob Kirby and asked him what he believes the total amount of derivatives outstanding is today? Here is his response:

    “I do not make this shit up: according to the BIS at end of 2016 – total aggregate outstanding notional derivatives was 482.9 Trillion

    for more up-to-date info specifically detailing American banking institutions – go to this link:

    Here, at this link, at table 2 – you will see that American bank holding cos possess 242.9 Trillion in notional of the overall (global) outstanding notional as of March 31, 2017. There is some overlap in dates – but you can do the math.

    Table 2 in the same US publication back in 2013 showed total American aggregate derivatives exposure as 296.8 Trillion in notional:

    BIS data has shown the same downward trend in outstanding notionals over the years.”

    So based on Rob Kirby’s response he accepts the BIS and OCC numbers. So the total aggregate outstanding notional over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives was about 500 trillion at the end of 2016. And if you add the almost $100 trillion in exchange-traded derivatives you get about $600 trillion in total derivatives which is much less than 1.5 quadrillion. I think that 1.5 quadrillion in total derivatives that some are still using today is at best an outdated number and at worst an exaggeration.

    • JMiller

      Just a follow-up to my post above. Concerning those people that say that total amount of derivatives is really 1.2 or 1.5 trillion but the amount was cut in half and is being falsely reported as just 600 or 700 billion by the BIS, here is an article by Jim Sinclair who in 2012 says the same thing.

      “Keep in mind the notional value of the total amount of OTC derivatives outstanding reported by the BIS was reduced by 50% about two years ago when the BIS changed their computer basis for valuation by considering all derivatives as going to closure as value to maturity. The actual total value of all outstanding OTC derivatives that was then carried for two reporting periods on the books of the BIS is one quadrillion, one hundred and forty four trillion US dollars notional value. This is fact. The $700 trillion US dollars that is quoted now has not changed since it was manufactured by a change in the method of accounting for notional value by reducing the number by approximately 50%.”

      But here is the problem. I found no evidence to support Jim Sinclair’s claim. The BIS semiannual reports from 2005-2017 all show that the total notional amount of OTC derivatives outstanding never got close to 1 quadrillion and never was reduced by any amount even close to what Sinclair said.

    Control of humanity is the goal of the One-World Govt, and what better way then to control the money that everyone uses to exchange for physical goods and services that people need. You can bet they have figured out on a replacement for the dying Federal Reserve Note dollar, and making it digital gives them technological control in our new inter-connected technological world.
    The big question will be if the new Eastern (Chinese/Russian) money system will be implemented and/or coerced by the globalists for their own purposes of total control and global slavery, or if the Eastern money will be competing with an inferior US/Western money substitute that PRETENDS to have some real gold backing. I’m not sure what the Chinese and Russians are thinking, although they officially declare themselves to be communists in ideology. The decadent West is so dysfunctional that it no longer can determine its own national identity, as many are confused about their genders and many feel the need to destroy plaster statues that have historical national significance.
    The foundation of money is based on “fuzzy” confidence, which is a concept and construct of the mind.
    I think the globalists intend to control our minds AND our bodies.
    The fake news is trying to control our mindful thoughts on God, morality, nature, history, sovereignty, and our perceptions of reality. Our fake political leaders are trying to take away our gold and guns (in addition to already destroyed our paper money), as gold and guns preserve our personal freedoms and our property–when our words and Constitution are not enough.
    The globalists want to destroy America conceptually and physically, because we are supposed to be the bastion of individual freedoms and private property. Both are quickly slipping away.

    Everything seems to be beyond one’s control. Cryptocurrencies? How many ways can one identify that personal control could be lost? Fiat money? Going to nothing and quickly being controlled by others. There is a coordinated effort to control the crash for those who have surreptitiously put on their seatbelt, but damn the poor unbelted ride alongs. Gold/silver? Go to your fave market and try to pay for your beer with that nugget. Besides what can’t the elected gods/goddesses mandate to dissuade Au/Ag? The pols are not leaving much in terms of a ‘safe landing’. Maybe I’m just a pessimistic SOB; for now I’ll just turn the page as the compelling, yet incomplete. dystopian novel is being written. But one question, what is the regular joe’ to do?

      The people who own the politicians in Washington love war and conflict. Black against white. Christian against Muslim. Jew against Arab. Its a good business model.There’s plenty of dollars to be made in endless war for the cabal.How is taking down a old statue in some backwater of america more important than stopping gun crime in Chicago. Its all about turning Anglo Saxon America against black and white liberals in Washington. If the banksters at Goldman Sachs could have another civil war like the one in 1860s,they would. Its good for business. America was built by men from Anglo Saxon Europe before Goldman Sachs,Rothschild’s,Rockerfella,Soros,and the other satanic families arrived in america. They want to destroy your history. Destroying the monuments is the start of causing bloody confrontation against black and white. Its good for business,sells newspapers,more TV ratings,more firearms and ammo , more us debt required for the police and military.This is how they work. This is how they have always worked. Destroying nation after nation throughout history.They ain’t christian . There controlled by Satan,and worship the devil daily.

        Nancy Pelosi wants all confederate statues removed from the capitol. Her family arrived from campobasso Italy in 1909. Her family have been in America only a few generations and she wants all statues removed , which have been standing longer than her family have been in the USA.

        • Rick Geisler

          The left aka Democrats is the Confederacy. History can’t repeat itself as long as these monuments exist. They are a reminder of what democrats were and are…..racists, liars and attack idiots of what they themselves are guilty of. Useful morons are always a plus. Those that supply the chants and a rope. These people depend on the stupidity of the American people to not see that they ARE the PEOPLE they are trying to condemn. Shameful.

    Terrific insightful interview Greg. Based on the recent near hysterical attacks
    on her analysis by bitcoin promoters I would say she is definitely on target with
    her comments. I lost much respect for Andy Hoffman after listening to his interview
    with Shaun @ SGT report on this very topic. The name calling is unbelievable.

  56. Tracy Welborn

    Wow, just listened to the SGT Report piece where Shawn and Andy Hoffman really get into it.

    Some of these guys are really ticked at Lynette for questioning the motives behind crypto’s. Why do they insist on being so demeaning and hateful?

    USA Watchdog website down on August 13-15, as previous comments alluded to. However, the exact cause of the server disconnect remains undisclosed, leaving it to rumor and speculation. Greg may not have paid his monthly fee to the website host in time and was shut down, or perhaps “a check bounced”. Money problems explain a lot. Has to be embarrassing. Time for donors to come to the rescue ? Let the cat out of the bag

      Yeah it was a bit over the top. I have cut Andy, Clif, Bix, Jsnip from my visits circuit. Seems like they have vested self interests. As time goes on people’s positions will form up. I suspect Christians or just plain straight up people will be the remaining core of resistance.

    Listened to the Andy Hoffman’s interview on SGT. He kept calling Lynette a nobody. He then polished his own apple regarding his expertise and credentials. I found him to be hideously unprofessional.

    Bill Holter had a joint interview with Lynette recently. I listened to that interview several times and forwarded it to friends and family. They made a great duo. It was in sharp contrast to how Hoffman talked down his nose about Lynette, the nobody.

    Hoffman was a hot head on SGT. You can disagree with people without getting mud fight ugly about it. Very disappointed. He didn’t do himself any favors.

    One comment on Lynette’s podcast with you, in that she’s incorrect in regards to the NWO will own everything; I wonder if anyone realizes that if you stop paying your taxes, usually three years, they, the state, will foreclose. So one really doesn’t own any type of real estate.

    Your diversity of guest are great. Ms. Zang’s info made me do some research and between some of Clif High’s reports and a video link below I viewed has me thinking with more confidence. I also listened to a podcast criticizing Zang on her lack of knowledge of blockchain/ACCHAIN and I think that individual may have to eat his (Andy Hoffman/SGT Report August 16 2017 ACCHAIN:You’ll be) words. We are all learning here so all ideas are welcome. Like brainstorming where no idea is a bad one until all possibilities are exhausted and crossed off the list. Time will tell!
    Again after watching this video link below think about setting up a Crypto currency wallet and be part of it/not all in-just a little in because that is all you will need to be comfortable as everyone /a large portion of the globe joins in inflating your wallet holdings. The future will include trillions of dollars in security transactions from a dying old system into the new system of blockchain including, smart contracts and transactions that I don’t yet understand! This will all add value.
    Great service you provide Greg and Thank You very much!
