Weekly News Wrap-Up 6.20.14
By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
President Obama is sending 300 military advisors to Iraq. This is the ultimate lose-lose scenario. Remember I told you Iran was already there, and the U.S. would be helping Iran defend Iraq. Well, it’s happening. Obama does not want to attack the ISIS or ISIL forces that have come down from Syria, and he does not want the Iranians to defend Iraq and gain influence. The Obama Administration has armed the Syrian rebels that are in part al-Qaeda related. If he starts bombing them, the campaign to oust Assad in Syria will be over. (It probably already is over.) If he helps the government in Iraq, he will in turn be helping the Iranians. This comes down to a coming civil war between the Sunni and Shiite Muslims. The United States has armed them both and is going to get caught in the middle. When, and not if, there is war, oil prices are going to explode. This is going to be a global economy killer
Meanwhile, the Russians are massing forces on the Ukraine border according to NATO. Heavy fighting is reported in Eastern Ukraine between Kiev government forces and pro-Russian separatists. It is also reported a military convoy stretching 10 miles is on the road between Moscow and Ukraine. On top of that, an Eastern Ukraine gas pipeline blew up this week. Maybe it’s was blown up because Russia cut off their natural gas and demands payment up front from now on. Who knows, but this is not moving the country closer to peace. One Russian official was quoted as saying it was “moving closer towards a serious conflict.”
A top Russian economic advisor to Putin is pushing to crash the dollar system as a way to stop the Ukraine civil war that Russia says was started by Washington. The Russians are worried about a third phase of sanctions that could end up hurting Russia and the EU. Meanwhile, it was announced this week the UK and China will begin trading in their own currencies. It is direct trade with yuan pound sterling. Please note they will not use the dollar. I hear nails being hammered in the dollar coffin, and I wonder when the dollar abandonment will reach critical mass. It is coming, but I don’t know when.
The IRS claims it lost two years of emails from a key figure in the IRS targeting scandal. Lois Lerner’s emails are gone along with other emails of people who have been accused of illegally targeting conservative groups. This is a juvenile and idiotic claim because emails are always backed up on multiple servers. The government is required by law to back them up. The main stream media (MSM) has given very little attention to this story even though this a major 1st Amendment violation they should be all over. If there was not a “smidgeon of corruption” as the President claims, then why not produce the emails? The Wall Street Journal says this is worse than Watergate. President Nixon lost less than 20 minutes of audio tape. The IRS lost two years of data? If this is not a cover-up, I don’t know what is. This is simply outrageous.
Illegal immigrant children are flooding across the U.S. Mexican border. Infowars.com is reporting that DHS will be helping escort undocumented immigrant children into the United States. Meanwhile, Texas Governor Rick Perry is beefing up security to combat the flood if illegals trying to cross the border. Governor Perry said, “Texas can’t afford to wait for Washington to act on this crisis.” Perry said that “safety and security” in Texas is “threatened.” Last week, former border patrol agents said they thought the crisis was being orchestrated.
Finally, Fed head Janet Yellen spoke this week and said that monetary policy would remain “highly accommodative.” She said this phrase multiple times. Greg Mannarino’s take on what she said is that she promised to do whatever it takes to continue to hyper-distort the market. Gold was up more than $40 in one day. I think that says a lot.
Join Greg Hunter as he talks about these stories and more in the Weekly News Wrap-Up.
The only crime at Watergate was that We-the-People never got to hear what was in the tapes at the DNC. I think Nixon had good reasons to spy on the DNC. Look at what the DNC is doing to us….
We owe Nixon an apology….
“We owe Nixon an apology”
Sorry, but that’s the dumbest comment EVER!
Compared to today’s era of Leaders, we can label Nixon as a ‘Pencil Thief’. Thus, we owe him an apology for his forced resignation by fickleness and two-faced Americans.
You are in that same category that blames Reagan for the deficit, but then by-passes Carter’s era of 15% unemployment, 22% interest rates, oil embargoes, grain embargoes, grain dumplings in oceans, hostages, Olympic embargoes, and so forth.
In two years Reagan turned it around. Thus, we were better then than the previous four years. Now days, we are far, far, far worse off than just 6 years ago. Enjoy your $5 gas and $8 gallon milk.
Hopefully, we will turn things for the better. Better for USA and for our world’s citizens….
Nixon was a crook & a liar!
What he steal?
@dan……..what is Obama,hillary,bill Clinton,lois lerner…….are they liars?
Last time I filled up with petrol it was $2.26 per litre.
We don’t use the ‘Queens’ imperial system down here – we moved on to metrics.
Here is the maths;
Petrol $2.26/litre x 3.78 [3.78 litre per US gallon] = $8.54
$8.54 x exchange rate[nz$ .87 to $US] = $7.43US
Wow Check out these exchanges between Congress and the Head of the IRS
But what are they going to do about it other than tell the IRS they don’t believe the? cut their funding? force resignations? dont’ count on anything but theater
How bout no 2014 tax refunds for any IRS agents, they’ll find am! There’s an old say in, a bird in the hand is better than two in the bush, money mate talks and cough’s up!
YOU it right, 250/barrel or more;
Today a legendary trader and investor warned King World News that the world is in danger of seeing the oil price soar to $250. He also warned this will crash the world economy and collapse confidence in the financial system and currencies. Victor Sperandeo has been in the business 45 years, and has worked with famous individuals such as Leon Cooperman and George Soros. Another legend, hedge fund manager Paul Tudor Jones, said, “Victor Sperandeo is gifted with one of the finest minds I know. No wonder he’s compiled such an amazing record of success as a money manager.” Below are the dire warnings issued by Sperandeo.
Sperandeo: “If you want to completely destabilize the Middle East, you try to destroy Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia is the richest country in the Middle East and they take care of their people. So when ISIS takes control of Iraq, you are going to have what the U.S. would describe as terrorists on the border of Saudi Arabia.”
Victor Sperandeo continues @ KingWorldNews.com
will never make it to 200 much less 250,,,,russia will short the hell out of oil at 150 and insure their price for years to come,,,along with all the oil companies and all oil producing countries…this may be the only reason for all this bullshit …just to get oil up to 150 where they can lock in that price for years to come.
I don’t quite understand why our oil prices should shoot through the roof when there is an oil embargo against Iran. We also convinced Europe to do the same which reduced Iran’s oil exports by 1/2. http://www.businessweek.com/news/2014-06-12/growing-iran-oil-exports-challenge-u-dot-s-dot-nuclear-sanctions. So if our markets are not dependent on Iranian oil, why the price jump???
A bird in the hand, “Irag,” is better than one in the in the bush, “Iran.”
Trying to find an answer to my previous question. I know the largest Iraq refinery is under siege. Found this article with seemingly conflicting opinions. http://www.motherjones.com/environment/2014/06/iraq-obama-baiji-oil-fracking

I just copied and will paste a parag. from JW’s HT letter concerning CHEMICAL WEAPONS IN IRAQ, and we can let G5 snopes or urban legend it for some pessimism porn. 🙂
remember guys, Jim protects his contacts like his “source” and the guys from Euro-Rajh, and dozens more from the govmnt. as they are still highly placed, which ensures a steady stream of fresh info.
Global Money Report, HT
“The United States has routinely called it nation building, but the war is better described as subservient to the grand crime syndicate. They can be assured of many accomplishments for their many business partners. Consider the huge service contracts to Halliburton and Blackwater for meals, fuel supply, village raids, road explosive dismantles, even helicopter side shows in civilian murder contests. Consider the huge arms contracts to the usual gang of military hardware producers led by McDonnell Douglas and Boeing.
Bear in mind the chemical weapons and biological weapons were cleaned up back in 2003. Do not believe the various expert accounts of nothing found, since the Jackass met an ex-Halliburton contractor in Costa Rica who was part of cleanup of Bush items. They found ten warehouses full of chem/bio weapons, all with ‘Made in USA’ markings, sold by the Bush I Admin. One must realize that Bush and Rumsfeld were Saddam’s suppliers and cohorts for the chemical weapons used against Iran in their long border war in the 1980 decade. Saddam also used US-made chemicals on the Kurds on the Turkish border on multiple incidents. See the News Doctor article with photo (CLICK HERE). One million lives were flushed during the entire project versus Iran, with another million lives flushed in Iraq during the awkward US annexation that followed, later abandoned. Also, the Big Pharm team conducted scattered vaccination experiments on soldier logs, a term used for unwilling victim considered of no value. The USArmy vaccine experiments (well documented by a nurse whistle blower) during the 1990 Kuwait War resulted in the Gulf War Syndrome, since the vaccines were laced with toxins. Many symptoms were blamed on the destroyed oil fields, as Saddam tossed many chemical weapons into the holes before detonations were done. ” JW Hat Trick Letter
Allen, you can search online to find the State department export document of the agents transferred to Iraq/Saddam ….. including numerous biological weapons ….
thanks, apprec. it. al
So you.want to make an equivalence between facts and make believe. Go for it. You.dont like the.fact that I point out inconvenient facts and truths about your little gullible guillotine store. I will always point out the truth, even when it is to my detriment. Beware the koolaid you drink dude, it clouds reason
and u still cant wrap your pess. porn around the FACT, my miss. friend’s, friend “out of the blue” told them of a warehouse full of guillotines’ became fearfull, and fled back to Italy, and OUT OF THE BLUE, they told me with no solicitation, Fact ! then I read Jim Willie has military contacts, who SAW the ovens and guillotines, seems, u have a daily dose of neg. pess. porn for breakfast. CANT BEAT EYE BALLS ON A FACT. It is the trump card, it seems u have a problem with my facts and enjoyment of JW as a superior commentator/analyst and you cant accept his superior analyisis of events, nor his great world wide covert contacts. You will never get actual out in the open indepth accurate facts of what is going inside the fema camps, 800, by googling goofy snopes, or urban. Must be done by secret contact. enter, Jim Willie. vote repubocrate this next election, and see what u get, 2 headed snake. see what you got from Bush, “patriot act” and and cliton, repeal glass steagle, and obma, more 2 headed snake stuff.
Good points. I’m beginning to think 500 has turned into the information police. I’m guessing that if some jar headed MS journalist hasn’t posted some tripe from a online rag, it doesn’t exist in his mind. What? Who owns the newspapers? Oh that’s right the same gaggle of crooks that have destroyed our financial system. Mercy me!
Just the truth police. Buy the fairy tales if you like. I do have a few magic beans for sale if you or Al have a cow to trade.

“Another threat, less overt but no less basic, confronts liberal democracy. More directly linked to the impact of technology, it involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled and directed society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite whose claim to political power would rest on allegedly superior scientific knowhow. Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values, this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using the latest modern techniques for influencing public behavior and keeping society under close surveillance and control. Under such circumstances, the scientific and technological momentum of the country would not be reversed but would actually feed on the situation it exploits.
… Persisting social crisis, the emergence of a charismatic personality, and the exploitation of mass media to obtain public confidence would be the steppingstones in the piecemeal transformation of the United States into a highly controlled society.”

You want to believe that the all powerful.government can take down towers to hide evidence (which I call bull.shiite on) but they cant find Jim Willie in Costa Rica? Dude, really?
No point arguing with people that deny facts. I have found you cant argue with fanatics, whether its a snake handler in the process of dying or the Heaven’s Gate cult member drinking the koolaid to visit the mother ship.
At one point I thought that you were reasonable. Did you pull up the link I posted that.pointed to the real GA bill…no, you continue on the yellow brick road. Well, good luck dude. I hope you make it to the city of Oz.

Pope Francis Warns The Global Economy Is Near Collapse

On the IRS, can I say that the TWO WAY power of taxation should be understood. In ancient times, out-right slavery was replaced with the practice of “tithing” or “the taking of first fruits”. But throughout history, Governments have over-reached until the people revolted causing a reset. In simple terms, think of the movie “Ants” wherein the ants (that’s you and me) were forced to collect food for the parasitic grass-hoppers (that’s our Government and their mates). In that movie, the final refusal to pay tax resulted in a war, which (we the people) won because ultimately it is the (Government) who are dependent on us. If you have no idea what I’m talking about – rent the move!
The point is that taxation revolts have previously been used successfully to bring down hundreds of tyrannical Governments and indeed whole Empires, such as the Aztec, Egyptian and Roman. Other historic events that originated as tax revolts include the Magna Carta, the American Revolution and the French Revolution. The full history is extensive, but a short summary (running for many pages) can be found here:
The important questions (before starting a tax revolt) have always been:
– Is the over-all level of taxation appropriate?
– Does the law allow the rich and powerful to hide from taxation?
– Is taxpayer money used to bail-out the mistakes of the elite?
– Does the Government waste the tax it collects?
– Is the Government taking the country in the right direction?
– Does the taxpayer have other means to change Government direction?
So if you want a (quick) reset of your system, simply start “Occupy the IRS” and refuse (en mass) to pay your taxes. You will have the tyrants on their knees and begging for forgiveness in no time! AND your next Government will be representative of “we the people” rather than of tax-free lobby groups!
You make a good point; but over-simplify at the same time. If they can print money at will – can they not supply their minions while they lock-up non-payers? Following your suggestion, only a portion of Americans with conscientious objections will be made an object lesson of, locked up, and the rest will be tamed. What do you do about the Patriot Act?; all the presidential Executive Directives?? All anybody has to do is term tax-evaders as “soft” homeland terrorists. Simple solutions do not conduce to resolve complex problems.
Racking over history, when Governments get to the point whereby they are above the law / Constitution and voting no longer works, there are only two alternatives – violence (which I am against) and a tax revolt (which I think the American public would be very good at – because it involves NOT doing something)!
For the weak-hearted, crimeless tax revolts can be done in a number of ways:
 Citizens and companies can state that they are unhappy with the direction of the Federal Government and that they are considering a tax revolt, with meetings to be held in consultation with State and local Government to consider the options available etc, etc…
 Citizens and companies actually declare their INTENT to either stage a tax revolt and /or move off-shore (as Apple and so many others have already done), BUT at the same time give public reasons for the move (Government direction, Obamacare, no more war, etc).
 NON-taxpayers gather and protest and declare that they will not pay their taxes. Media coverage of this event will be enough to scare the Government, who can do nothing because they are non-taxpayers.
 Taxpayers state that they will not pay their NEXT tax, which in itself is not a crime but sends an equally strong message.
 Petititions are signed stating the “Taxpayers Demands” which, if not met, may result in a tax-revolt.
 Use your own imagination – there are many other ways to create a Government panic without actually commiting a crime. Remember, the Government have built a weapons arsenal to fight an armed revolt, but they have no weapons against a peaceful revolt. And with-holding taxation is the peaceful citizen’s most powerful weapon!
At some stage, some taxpayers might actually choose to stop paying tax. In which case, the outcome will be just like that of any other strike action. If enough workers go on strike and show determination, then they will win – otherwise they will lose. The key is get the right organizer who can build the solidarity required.
I agree that the Government can print money at will. But this also means that taxation is unnecessary. In fact, (I believe that) income tax was only introducted after the creation of the Federal Reserve system. Which means that tax is really just an invention of the criminal bankers to create poverty and debt and thereby create customers.
Finally, I note an interesting thing – although I don’t want (or need) to use it as an argument for my case. If you look at the reference given above – it appears that Jesus himself may have started one of the first organized tax revolts :
Jewish Zealots, 1st century A.D.
See also: Render unto Caesar…
In the 1st century AD, Jewish Zealots in Judaea resisted the poll tax instituted by the Roman Empire. Jesus was accused of promoting tax resistance prior to his torture and execution (“We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Cæsar, saying that he himself is Christ a King” — Luke 23:2).
Which (if true), suggests that peaceful tax resistance is a legitimate form of protest against Government tyranny. But I am no scholar of the subject, so please don’t shout – I just thoought it was interesting.
Sorry to continue and take up valuable space, but I have found a reference that expresses by thoughts:
Mexican-American War, 1846
Perhaps the most famous American example of a tax resister, Henry David Thoreau, was briefly jailed in 1846 for refusing to pay taxes in protest against the Fugitive Slave Act and the Mexican–American War.
In his essay on civil disobedience, he wrote:
…If a thousand men were not to pay their tax bills this year, that would not be a violent and bloody measure, as it would be to pay them, and enable the State to commit violence and shed innocent blood. This is, in fact, the definition of a peaceable revolution, if any such is possible.
Me too, i copied and pasted it to a friend. lol
Thanks – because I would like to add that the critical thing is not the withdrawal of money – but the withdrawal (by the public) of the legitimacy of the Government. And it is that which makes them panic and reform.
Dude I am very much with you on this one.
Is our perspective ‘down here’ a bit different or what?
We will solve nothing by only ever banging on about what is broke. It is high time we became constructive in our criticism and actually offer up some ideas and models that could be used in facilitating and implementing change.
As contributors and followers on this site I think we need to encourage and debate new initiatives that are put forward.
We never know but the status quo system could be gone tomorrow, thats how precarious it is. We don’t want to be in a position where the new system is a cross between a big black hole and flat out anarchy.
You “think” you are going to panic the government? I don’t think so.
To just stop paying tax is – “just like that of any other strike action.” No, this is painting in too broad of strokes. Tell the Air Traffic Controllers that lost their livelihood when then went against President Reagan.
Taxation may be tied to the FED and all the following corruption – but it also paved the way to fund the Industrial Revolution’s improvements like constructing roads for automobiles; not to mention WWI and WWII. Didn’t Lincoln tax during the Civil War?
And you infer that “Jesus himself may have started on of the first organized tax revolts”?!???! At this point you completely lose me. This is WAY over-the top. The reference of St. Luke 23:2 specifies an accusation made by men who were LYING in their accusation: there was no foundation to this accusation. If you read further Pilot says: “I find no fault in this man.” Jesus, the Christ – is God. You therefore bring God into the picture to support tax revolts? No, Sir Your zealousness toward this cause is allowing you to twist even Holy Scripture around. And the rule for Scripture is that it does not contradict itself. Jesus Christ Himself TAUGHT, from His own mouth, in His answer to the Herodians (followers of King Herod) Using “tribute money”, a “penny” – (Matt. 22:15-22.) He said:” Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things which are God’s.” You voluntarily use money with the government’s inscription on it, instead of bartering. Don’t beef about rendering unto the government the things which are the government’s.
Finally, you mention that H. D. Thoreau – “was briefly jailed in 1846 for refusing to pay taxes.” So they DO put people in jail for a protest “like any other strike action”. That was then, before the IRS became an agency of persecution. Remember Wesley Snipes? He went to jail in Central Florida for a number of years for tax evasion. And they have closed-down Creationist’s Museums and jailed husband and wife even though they agreed to pay the exorbitant penalties.
A missionary friend, now gone, was opposed by the local parish priest, who slandered and stirred up the people a ways down the street from the home and missionary compound. As the priest walked and raised his voice against the “Gringo” who was condemning to Hell all the souls he might convert: the people increased to a crowd, and then an angry mob. But before arriving at the compound – the priest faded back through the crowd, and lodged, half-hidden in a doorway – to not be involved, but to see how this mob would do violence to the American missionaries. I wonder if you follow this same pattern? Stirring people up and sending them off to a bad confrontation?!?? Only Tax Protesters won’t be outnumbering the intended target. The government will throw-down very hard on those who oppose them under taxation issues. Stir ’em up: let ’em go? There are an hundred ways to start filling the Fema Camps: and this, however intended, could be a good one.
Gosh, great rant Charles!
But a couple of days ago this site attacked me for criticising without providing a solution. So I took that on board and worked hard and today I provide you with the only peaceful solution that has worked over the last 2,000 years. And still you are not happy!
So I give up, do what you like – I really don’t care! But I’ll tell you one thing mate – and this is an rock solid promise – if your Government touches one hair on any of my children’s heads, then I will come after YOU!
You sit there whinging about the crimes of your Government, quoting this passage from the Bible and that, but when push comes to shove you actually won’t DO anything !
I am also sorry Charles, I know that you are allowed to quote passages from the Bible, but no one else is. But I did clearly state that it was a point of interest only and I did state that I was not relying on it to form my argument. In any case, please delete the reference Greg – religion has no place in this discussion.
Charles, Fras, Al and the Gregster, Mark 12:13 Next they sent to him some of the Pharisees and of the party followers of Herod in order to catch him in his speech. On arriving, these said to him: “Teacher, we know you are truthful and you do not seek anyone’s favor, for you do not look at the outward appearance of people, but you teach the way of God in line with truth. Is it lawful to pay head tax to Caesar or not? 15 Should we pay, or should we not pay?” Detecting their hypocrisy, he said to them: “Why do you put me to the test? Bring me a de·nar′i·us to look at.” 16 They brought one, and he said to them: “Whose image and inscription is this?” They said to him: “Caesar’s.” 17 Jesus then said: “Pay back Caesar’s things to Caesar, but God’s things to God.” And they were amazed at him.
There you are my fiends, from the horse’s mouth, Jesus, the Christ, the son of God!
Amen!! Awesome analysis, and smack on.
Well.said mr charles
I’m only speculating here,is there not a world court that will hold us accountable for the far to many wars we are fighting in. Wasn’t Germany held accountable for the crimes they committed after WWII was over. Once our dollar is no more and once we can’t fuel our army’s, then it’s only time before the rest of the rug is pulled from under this nation’s feet. Let’s take those 300 advisers and send them to the US borders, to support our border patrol agents who desperately need help. We’re pretty good at sending our military into just about every country, but for some reason they refuse to protect our borders. Love my country. Proud to support our military. Don’t give a tinker’s Dam about the politicians who can’t follow the constitution, and who send our military into situation’s we do not belong in the first place. They spend our tax dollars like it was their own money . They have not given us a budget and they have put us into more debt then we can ever repay. If we get to an election in November (and in my opinion,that may not happen with this crowd in office) ,PINK slips to every Yahoo in Washington. Before signing off, I was just trying to remember Watergate and President Nixon resigning. I was a senior in High school. Tell me again, “He did what” to be forced to resign from office. Under pressure from the American press and the citizens of this country, he resigns from Office. We now have a Administration that is destroying America from within, and no one is standing up to defend our constitution or the rights of her citizens. Seems to me, we all know where this is leading us…..Thanks for letting me exercise my constitutional rights, before an executive order tells me other wise. Be prepared for what’s to come.

Not a single ray of sunshine do we see.
The USA goes to the middle east and makes a complete mess of it.
Then we go to the Ukraine and make a mess of that too.
The reason is unlike a war where there is planning this is not what we have here.
These people are haphazardly doing what one person or another wants to do.
Seemed like a good idea at the time sort of thing.
Guess it was like George Soros said: It’s so much fun.
But as time goes by the mess we make over there will spill over to here.
Seems there was a person running for president not too long ago talking about it.
Something called blow back.
Quite a few people were booing him and wanted him out of the debates.
So we add to this the IRS problem and Benghazi and the border problems and Fast and Furious and the health care problems and should I go on?
Lets face it we no longer have a government for the people.
What we see is nothing short of a page out of Looney Toons.
What’s that term they used back in WW2 for things that were really messed up.
Oh yes Fubar!
Greg, I just finished listening to T. Ferguson’s interviews with Dr. Dave Janda at http://www.tfmetalsreport.com. Have you ever heard of him? He is an orthopedic surgeon and very aware of the current situation, whose insight I believe is highly relevant. He does have a website and radio show. http://www.davejanda.com. Please check into his work and if possible see if you can get him as a guest. All the very best Greg, God bless, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. I do understand if you decide not to post this in the comments section as I am not making remarks about your report on the weekly wrap, but if you listen to his interview with Turd Ferguson (1st interview May 29, 2nd interview here in June) you will see the value in what Dr. Janda shares because of the high quality and ease with which he articulates the facts related to what we are facing.
look who owns the media. i quit tuning into these news stations because it’s all lies. i got tired of listening to the bs that flowed out of the mouths of these people. then the local news is worse. some murder, usually drug related or dumb – – – going off the deep end. fire, then we move straight to whats going on in hollywood. vague stories around the world or our gov’t. the song, dirty laundry always pops into mind.
once again somebody or some part of our gov’t lies intentionally about something like the irs, throws it out there, msm won’t touch it with a 10 ft. poll. the story they give is so full of holes that you can’t even make swiss cheese with it, yet they get away without any response, except a very few people like you. but the mass is asleep. it worries me that when they do wake, it will be complete chaos. i don’t think very many see it coming. this and many other things our gov’t does is beyond belief.
the power of prayer for the innocent people of this country, our military people and those who need to go away.
greg, i see your passion and hard work, god bless you and your family. i wish you a good weekend.
for a suggestion for an interview, mish shedlock
Right on! I cancelled my DirecTv due to lies and trash. Funny how you can have over 600 channels and nothing on worth watching! I selectively peruse the internet for news. I opened an acct with Netflix and watch mostly educational stuff….and even that has been infected to some degree. There’s also a lot of good radio over the internet…I particularly like Mark Davis. He’s just soooo logical and factual….To me, Limbaugh isn’t worth the time as he does not stray far from the party line. When the wheels have fallen off, there’s no fixin” it….It has to be thrown out! If voting were not rigged and the parties were not most of the problem, I would have some hope, but that is not the case. It’s all corrupt. Trust in your preparations, gold and silver….that’s the ticket IMHO. You have to be very careful where you tread as you don’t want to end up in a FEMA “camp” under one of their guillotines, or shot with one of their armor piercing bullets by some power crazed government worker from the TSA or the P.O.!
You do not disappoint… “careful where you tread”; “Limbaugh isn’t worth the time”; and the “over 600 channels and nothing worth watching”. I understand that you are just stating straight observation: but for others – it is almost poetry. Surely voting isn’t rigged!!??!! (I’m joking.)
I too rid myself of comcast 3 yrs ago, and i too just got net flix, tv hasn’t been on for months. I stay close to the views here at the watchdog, and research other stuff recommended by people here. my antenna is broke off my PU truck, and dont turn it on anyhow. alot of folks send me stuff on FB for research.
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. – Revelations 20:4
Calgirl and Bob, Amen. And remember that camaraderie will be priceless.
While I no longer listen to Limbaugh, he was an important step in finally ‘getting it’. Once I recognized the evil globalist ‘men behind the curtain’ and that Limbaugh, Hannity, Fox News etc. dare not tread on them, I moved forward. This whole journey can be summed up by always searching for better sources of truth. Finding Greg’s and his savvy Watchdogs has been a blessing.
A very interesting take on the Iraqi situ
”…You can believe or not believe at you own discretion. This my friends is a CIA operation pure and simple the purpose of which is to remove Maliki under the guise that terrorists are over running the country. I know some will say I sound like a quack and some will judge me as such. I don’t care anymore… .”
Goes into details in the latter half of the post.
It is no coincidence that :
– US intelligence was completely “blind-sided” (by months of build up)
– 250,000 Iraqi soldiers (trained by the US) fled before an ISIS group of 8,000
– The terrorists “captured” all the US military assets
– The US left the keys in those military assets
– The terrorists knew exactly how and where to steal all the Iraqi gold and money
– The US refuses to lift a finger to stop them
– The US is calling for “regime change” in Iraq as a condition of help
SO – this “terrorist attack” has “made in the USA” written all over it !
It occured to me that Obama and McCain wanted to arm the Al Qaeda to fight in Syria. Did you see.were all of these weapons were.going? Being trucked to Syria. I posted a link that has a picture of McCain and his Al Qaeda buddies. It seems awful convenient that so many weapons were left not to mention stingers.
G500 – Honestly, my heart just sinks and sinks. I hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.
If anyone is surprise by this, they just came out a rock.
Our “scandal a week-in-chief” is living up to his pedigree. he will destroy this nation.
Maliki was leaving the petrodollar reservation.
So of course this is Al CIAda removing him from leadership.
Just think petrodollar when looking at these conflicts and all becomes clear.
Ukraine,Iraq,Nigeria , cui bono ?

“There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer: no disease that love will not heal: no door that enough love will not open…It makes no difference how deep set the trouble: how hopeless the outlook: how muddled the tangle: how great the mistake.

A time-worn plaque against the side of a building. It reads:
“a free press for a free people.”
“Below is a letter which reached my
desk this morning. It’s a commentary
on what we laughingly call the civilized
world. ‘Dear Miss Mitchell: Four years
ago I was fired out of my job. Since
then I haven’t been able to get another
one. At first I was sore at the state
administration because it’s on account
of the slimy politics here we have all
this unemployment. But in looking around,
it seems the whole world’s going to
pot, so in protest I’m going to commit
suicide by jumping off the City Hall
roof!’ Signed, A disgusted American
citizen, John Doe.'”
“Editor’s note . . . If you ask this
column, the wrong people are jumping
___________Meet John Doe Tonight_______________________
_______________ON THE AIR__________________________
And good evening, ladies and gentlemen.
This is Kenneth Frye, speaking for the
New Bulletin . Tonight we give you something
entirely new and different. Standing
beside me is the young man who has declared
publicly that on Christmas Eve he intends
to commit suicide, giving as his reason—quote:
“I protest against the state of civilization.”
End quote. Ladies and gentlemen, the
New Bulletin takes pleasure in presenting
the man who is fast becoming the most
talked-of person in the whole country,
John Doe: Well, people like the Governor — people like the Governor — and that fella there can — can stop worrying. I’m not gonna talk about them. I’m gonna talk about us, the average guys, the John Does.
If anybody should ask you what the average John Doe is like, you couldn’t tell him because he’s a million and one things. He’s Mr. Big and Mr. Small. He’s simple and he’s wise. He’s inherently honest, but he’s got a streak of larceny in his heart. He seldom walks up to a public telephone without shoving his finger into the slot to see if somebody left a nickel there.
He’s the man the ads are written for. He’s the fella everybody sells things to. He’s Joe Doakes, the world’s greatest stooge and the world’s greatest strength.
Yes, sir — Yes, sir, we’re a great family, the John Does. We are the meek who are — who are supposed to inherit the earth. You’ll find us everywhere. We raise the crops; we dig the mines, work the factories, keep the books, fly the planes and drive the busses. And when a cop yells: “Stand back there, you!” He means us, the John Does!
We have existed since time began. We built the pyramids. We saw Christ crucified, pulled the oars for Roman emperors, sailed the boats for Columbus, retreated from Moscow with Napoleon and froze with Washington at Valley Forge.
Yes, sir. We’ve been in there dodging left hooks since before history began to walk. In our struggle for freedom we’ve hit the canvas many a time, but we always bounced back! Because we’re the people — and we’re tough.
They’ve started a lot of talk about free people going soft — that we can’t take it. That’s a lot of hooeyl A free people can beat the world at anything, from war to tiddle-de-winks, if we all pull in the same direction.
I know a lot of you are saying “What can I do? I’m just a little punk. I don’t count.” Well, you’re dead wrong! The little punks have always counted because in the long run the character of a country is the sum total of the character of its little punks.
But, we’ve all got to get in there and pitch. We can’t win the old ballgame unless we have teamwork. And that’s where every John Doe comes in. It’s up to him to get together with his teammates. And your teammate, my friend, is the guy next door to you. Your neighbor — he’s a terribly important guy that guy next door. You’re gonna need him and he’s gonna need you, so look him up. If he’s sick, call on him. If he’s hungry, feed him. If he’s out of a job, find him one.
To most of you, your neighbor is a stranger, a guy with a barkin’ dog and high fence around him. Now, you can’t be a stranger to any guy that’s on your own team. So tear down the fence that separates you. Tear down the fence and you’ll tear down a lot of hates and prejudices. Tear down all the fences in the country and you’ll really have teamwork.
I know a lot of you are saying to yourselves, “He’s askin’ for a miracle to happen. He’s expectin’ people to change all of a sudden. Well, you’re wrong. It’s no miracle. It’s no miracle because I see it happen once every year. And and so do you — at Christmas time. There’s somethin’ swell about the spirit of Christmas, to see what it does to people, all kinds of people.
Now, why can’t that spirit, that same, warm Christmas spirit last the whole year around? Gosh, if it ever did, if each and every John Doe would make that spirit last 365 days out of the year, we’d develop such strength, we’d create such a tidal wave of good will that no human force could stand against it. Yes sir, my friends, the meek can only inherit the earth when the John Doe’s start lovin’ their neighbors.
You better start right now. Don’t wait till the game is called on account of darkness.
Wake up, John Doe. You’re the hope of the world.
COLONEL: Walter Brennan
Say, all this John Doe business is batty,
if yuh ask me.
ANN: Barbara Stanwyck
Well, nobody asked yuh.
COLONEL: r Trying to improve the world by jumping
off buildings. You couldn’t improve
the world if the building jumped on
JOHN: Gary Cooper
Don’t mind the Colonel. He hates people!
Why do you spam this blog?
We have the old guard oligarchs of the uS bankers and blind trusts and stock holding companies. we have the european oligarchs in London, Berlin…
we have some new unidentified oligarchs in Hong-kong, China, Russia….
The one percent are positively making you and JohnDoe obsolete anacronisms.
WE need just the facts, not this LLAMF (lost like a mother forker) stuff (stuff = the green piles behind a horse).
Its as informative as the horse shiite that some gullible posters put about guillotines …and by that I mean not very. But they both are laughable
And although the opening of the convention
is hours off, the delegates are already
pouring into the ball park by the droves,
with lunch baskets, banners and petitions,
asking John Doe not to jump off any
roof . . .
KNOX MANNING: I It is still a phenomenal movement. The
John Does, or the hoi polloi as you’ve
heard people call them, have been laughed
at and ridiculed but here they are,
gay and happy, having traveled thousands
of miles, their expenses paid by their
neighbors, to come here to pay homage
to their hero, John Doe.
JOHN B. HUGHES:
And in these days of wars and bombings,
it’s a hopeful sign that a simple idea
like this can sweep the country, an
idea based on friendliness, on giving
and not taking, on helping your neighbor
and asking nothing in return. And if
a thing like this can happen, don’t
let any of our grumbling friends tell
you that humanity is falling apart.
This is John B. Hughes, signing off . . .
There you are guy’s, the people, try and lick that!
And guy’s don’t lose your heads over all this!
You’ve got it all wrong. Iraq is not a ‘lose lose’ situation it’s a big ‘Win Win’ for the military industrial complex. More profits for the arms industry. For them the chance to kill and maim thousands more is music to their ears.
Where’s is your pride in USA militarism. Got to keep dropping those bombs. It’s the American way. (Cue the Stars and Stripes music.)
ps. the above is irony.
Great wrap-up Greg. The mounting tensions and the email scandal are the biggest news this week. Some heads better roll from “losing” those emails, but if they follow their SOP, they will probably promote those people to some plush IT job in Caribbean consulate. What is telling is the corporate media hasn’t shown the backlash from the technical community and called the IRS/Executive out on to the carpet. Just more proof of the control the government exerts over the “free” media.
Greg you really summed it all up in that last few minutes !! You owe it to yourself and to your audience to do a positive news show perhaps one a month? Or perhaps a closing positive story once in a while : ) There is still a lot of good in the world Greg, and there are some good stories to cover, about good people, and good organizations fighting the good fight. If you could give them a little attention on your wonderful news cast, that would be great ! At this point, we could all use a little good news once in a while, as this negative insanity is taking a toll on us all : / Please have a good weekend…and I hope you find a way to balance all of this destructive news you cover, with constantly acknowledging all the good in your life, as it is not easy to cover all this negative news, day in and day out. Thank you for all you do sir, much respect to you !!
Amen. I can not listen to anymore bad news. I have put my head in the sand on this – I don’t even listen to Greg’s weekly wrap up (nothing personal Greg). I just can’t take anymore negative stuff. I am ready to explode with it – I’ve had my fill. However. I do enjoy reading the comments – I do ignore and not read a few certain posters. But, I learn and enjoy most of the comments, but just can’t take anymore negative news.
Your ending was simple and to the point. “We have to have the most idiotic and dumbest leaders in the history of leadership.” I love it and it is a brilliant summary of our situation reduced to a few words.
However, one has to sit back and ponder how stupid and dumb the American populace is for continually electing these toxic fools.
Perhaps this happened because we lost the news media. Oh how I yearn for the real news media that ended sometime ago in 1970. I still remember the words. “Goodnight Chet… Good night David” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYf3eyRjfYA
Agreed. If they were about truth, justice and the American way like in the good old days.
“Truth, justice and the American way like in the good old days.”
Looking at history through rose-tinted glasses. Remembering the good times and forgetting about the bad. Love it”
But of course…if the pain wasnt dulled by the passage of time women wouldn’t have a second or third child nor men a second marriage
Greg, critical mass for the dollar will come on July 15th according to my source. The United States has clearly reached a checkmate scenario, with Ukraine and Iraq. I have no doubt that ISIS was directed by the Saudi’s to invade Iraq to draw the United States into a trap, in preparation for the end of the Petro dollar. My sources have said that the Saudis have reached an agreement with the Chinese and the Russians behind closed doors, to supply oil to them using the new gold backed Yuan system.
O.K. listen up, because this is important. My sources have said that they have received information that Silver prices will do a moon shot following the events transpiring on July 15th. What events you say? Several lines diverging at the same time to an unprecedented event.
1. ) War between Russia and NATO
2.) Loss of the Petro Dollar
3.) Second Quarter GDP report
This is it. Economic musical chairs. Pick yours while you still can. My advice for those paying attention. By some Silver along with food supplies.
Hi Jerry, I have been following your posts for a while now. I t looks like what you are saying is coming due. I just wanted to ask you… is your source that reliable, I mean dead on reliable. I aslk because this is exactly the scenario I see coming No offense meant.
Google the “City of London Corporation”. My source does investments for these people. They tell him ahead of time what events they plan to manipulate, so they can get maximum return on their investments. So do you think he would be accurate? Or do you still believe that the free market still exists? These people make money whether its boom or bust. No pun intended. Forget about the MSM and what you read on the internet. They control that to.
Here is a link that describes the City of London’s power base pretty well.
Those that don’t believe that the Rothschild’s and Rockefeller’s are in full control are just plain ignorant of the facts.
Here’s another link, for those that want to educate themselves on who controls the markets, and the banks.
wow will keep watching, hope u r wrong.
Thank you Greg, I find your guests and commentary the best of the best online … Your no bull approach to economic news is refreshing and insightful.
Would it be out of line to use short segments of your reports or commentary in a news package within my own short news report with adequate attribution for you and your site?
Here is something interesting. The govt seems to have known the.flood of children was coming.
Here is a pic.of McCain and ISIS rebels in Syria
We are waiting for the trigger ,so says a ex marine /CIA employee , this is the other side of the coin , the blowback from the 99% , its only a matter of time before the status quo implodes , from Iraq to wall street too many things are getting out of control at the same time , there will be a Tunisian fruit seller moment , then the TSHTF .
Maybe this guy would be a great guest on your programme ?
Allen for over two months I have been getting mulberries from my tree. 9 gal of mulberry wine. Buckets of tame blackberries. This week I figured how to get water to move up hill using a 4 gal bucket and a/c fan blades. apx 10 ft lift.
Greg. L Lerner needs to be locked up for sure. I bet a good hacker could find those emails.
picked up 250 lbs of rice, sams; 250 ft 10-2 wire, several batters d – c, remember u can recharge reg. batteries up to 10 times, NP. didnt understand the water lift, but mulberry wine, great!!!!
went to the bank yest to get papers notorized sp and the banker gave me my papers, and i asked him the question, lol ha “what does the usd as the reserve currency mean to the world and to us if we lose this status?” look of dumb, no idea. i covered gold backwardation, naked shorting 34 banker deaths, eurasian trade zone, who are the BRICS nations, who leads the G20, what is a yaun swap facility. still dumb look. I preceede to inform him, and he pulled out an envelop and said write down the sites. of course i channeled him to usawd and the JW interview, rob kirby, pcr, manirinno, egon von G. and more, a whole list and more.
I said I would get back to him.
I then went to LOWES and stopped by the cont. desk to see another guy I nailed a week or so ago, and he wasnt his usual chipper “I’m blessed and highly favored” all is well sanguine self. contrary. I said did u listen to the GH interview of rob kirby, and more. he said, sober faced, “It really looks scarey” I than told him to go back and listen to the wed morn with GH vs Jim Willie. He will he said. lol sheeple, and pessimist porn, no common sense. al
The world is dividing between the wolves and the sheep. The wolves that run Washington want to kill off the other wolves, so they can have complete control of the sheep. But guess what? Their plan will fail. The righteous will prevail.
Allen Good work. Everyone that thought I was a scared nut case. Now they realize they have been uninformed.
you live right down the road from me in tennessee, son, i posted my cell no. on your fb page, woahhhh very small world, we gotta hook up, show u my places in woods and stuff.
Archimedes screw. Its been used for several thousand years to.raise water and it is simple to construct
G 500. That’s basic of what I made on a super small scale . When I get well I will post pics on my fb page.
Neat. Sorry, I.dont have a.facebook page
Aside from re-invading, it seems we [the US] are seeking to do a regime change in Iraq. Again. Obama and McCain agree that “al-Maliki has to go.” [Never mind that we engineered his “election”; we engineered Saddam Hussain obtaining control of Iraq all those years ago, and you see where that got him. In the end, I mean.] Oh, and Obama has just said we may need to bomb Syria along the way. Gotta break a few eggs and all that. It’s all about oil, and the corporate cabals that run the US now don’t care if oil prices go up. It’s all more profit for them; what do they care where the coin comes from? As to the Sauds, who remain one of our best “friends” despite the fact that most of the 9/11 hijackers came from there: I would venture that all this turmoil suits the House of Saud just fine; keeps the Iraqi oil off the market for awhile, and they are also well aware that the ISIS terrorists are handled and armed by the US and thus no real threat to them. That we are instigating, aiding and abetting terrorism all over the place, killing people everywhere and messing with cultures we mostly don’t understand is irrelevant to our so-called leaders.
And who has reared his ugly head as one of our favorites to replace al Maliki if we can manipulate this out-of-control situation that far?
Ahmad Chalabi. Perfect. The guy knows how to play both sides against the fence and would fit right in with the Obama administration as well as he did with the Bush.
“[…] Over the past two days the American ambassador, Robert S. Beecroft, along with Brett McGurk, the senior State Department official on Iraq and Iran, have met with Usama Nujaifi, the leader of the largest Sunni contingent, United For Reform, and with Ahmad Chalabi, one of the several potential Shiite candidates for prime minister, according to people close to each of those factions, as well as other political figures.
“ ‘Brett and the ambassador met with Mr. Nujaifi yesterday and they were open about this, they do not want Maliki to stay,’ Nabil al-Khashab, the senior political adviser to Mr. Nujaifi, said Thursday. […]”
In case you don’t remember that name, here’s a brief summary of Chalabi, who was important to the Bush administration in drumming up support for the invasion of Iraq in ’03 and was installed in Baghdad in charge of the “deBaathification” process after Hussain was hanged (and was put in charge of repairing Iraq’s infrastructure in ’07, although he quickly betrayed Maliki and the US by siding with al-Sadr and so was removed from his position in the Iraqi government): http://www.huffingtonpost.com/barry-l...
I suppose Lando, who wrote the HuffPo piece a few years ago, will have to update the ending of that particular article.
Darrell Issa isn’t a dumb person by any means. He knows good and well that emails are held on mail servers and those servers have backups. Since 9\11 backup and disaster recovery has been a very large part of IT. This whole deal smells of political theater. This is nothing more than a show for the sheeple. (not a very convincing show for us IT professionals)
ha, tram, train samo samo 🙂

How can this report happen? LIVE REPORT.
Greg is there any explanation possible?
Jim Willie e mailed me last year, 2 of his jewish subscribers who worked in the towers, were notified 2 days in advance NOT TO GO TO WORK in the towers, or they would be killed.
NEWS FLASH! Justin Bieber throws eggs at neighbor’s house!
NEWS FLASH! Lindsay Lohan get’s another DUI!
NEWS FLASH! Old Billionaire is a closet rascist!
Is it any wonder that more and more people are turning off the main stream media and turning on usawatchdog? Thanks for giving us the real news.
Greg: Thanks for what you do! I cannot miss a day checking your site.
My compliments to Jim Quinn and Tyler Durdin at Zero Hedge. I read the Fourth Turning in about 1998. Strauss and Howe – 1997 woke me up and started my long term strategy. The reason I watch you Greg began with them snapping me out of the fog of asking myself a question. “What the heck is it I am missing?” This update article will answer a lot of people I see commenting here that cannot quite get what the you and the regulars are talking about. Please check it out and maybe see if Strauss or Howe might give an update interview. I do not know Jim Quinn either.
I am so surprised no one has sarcastically said for the retrieval of emails should be requested from the NSA. As bad as it is out there we need to keep calm, our eyes on the ball and wait for what we know is coming. We can help spread the word, but force our opinions on others is a lost cause. People are ignorant and sent in their own ways. They are comfortable right now and don’t like change. With every crisis there are opportunities.
“The majority must be wrong, for the few to benefit.” And it is this quote that is true , I forget who said it but is what makes up the wealthy 1%.
The only way to be informative and alert are from great sites like yours. I have great respect for work. Keep it up, you are doing a great job.
Coalburner., fyi…Strauss passed away a few years ago. And Howe doesn’t seem to be doing much in the way of new stuff..
The world is heading for a BIG CRISIS. There will be chaos everywhere.
The USA will fail, the ruin is certain, it is not right now (there is an event that will happen first ), but will fail big time, and bring the whole world together to ruin.
The prophecy on the last verses of Daniel 11 will soon happen.
I urge everyone to read the book “The Great Controversy” written by Ellen G. White.
There will be the WW3 ! It will happen. It is not right now, there will be a little time before it starts. Anyone who thinks, knows it will happen!
Good wrap-up. The wheels are just about off, huh? I just want to say thanks. Underneath the wear and tear of so much negative and southbound news – I still detect what I call “Ordinary Heroism” in your broadcasts. Just like the many horribly scarred veterans from WWII, who hardly ever, or never spoke about the personal costs; but came back changed men – they returned to their wives and children to do the best they could. Just getting up every day, and making the best of the bargain as they wound their way through life. It wasn’t American Exceptionalism: it was Ordinary Heroism, based on a people of better moral fabric and faith that kept everything running, and building. American Exceptionalism is an unqualified plagiarism and attempt in living in the past, because it doesn’t exist that way anymore. We are the remnants of that past, who model ourselves after our fathers and the nation’s fore-fathers. And I believe we carry what they had as they communicated some of their stuff to us; along with pockets around the world – like Colin from NZ. Be strong, and of good courage – ordinary heroism, my friend. It rubs off – you see.
Putin just gave Maliki his FULL support.
Blowback is a biatch.
Thousands demonstrate against Federal Reserve Bank IN GERMANY!
I really enjoy your posts.
You have fired me up about the FED again!
It is interesting to see this demonstration happening in Germany. The Fed is without any doubt the most sinister, destructive and evil institution that the financial world has ever witnessed. The fact that it is privately owned, unconstitutional and illegally formed means that there are in fact numerous ways to dismember it. The Fed is the foundation and root cause of the financial global mayhem that we are all now drowning in and it is an absolute disgrace that it has been allowed to survive for over 100 years.
It is the responsibility of each and every American to accept this and to realize that they are duty bound to disband the Fed. If the man in the street in America does not rise up against this evil creation then by default they are complicit in the ongoing destruction of the US economy.
Remember that term coined from State-run media a few years back…?
Yes, an amusing comment coming from a prepper. Irony abounds
if oil goes to 140 a barrel I am selling EVERYTHING and buying a double short etf on oil..the world can not and will not pay 140 for long, plus it will open up millions of sites to drill that are not feasible at 100 per barrel….
Personally, I think that would be a bad strategy. There is as much manipulation of the oil market as there is gold.
Everything is going according to plan. The Obamanistas are racing at full speed to create as many crises as possible to bring down the economic and social order as we know them before the 2016 election. They know they are toast in 2014 and do not care. They have the power of the pen and the militarized domestic police forces in place. The legislative and judicial branches have demonstrated that they are impotent and powerless. When everything collapses before the 2016 elections, the stage will be set for deferring/canceling the 2016 elections and Obama will do so knowing that he has absolutely no opposition except for some constitutionalists that he will have arrested and paraded in front of the complicit news media as the “bad guys.”
Classic Marxist take over 101.
Oh, Greg, what can I say!? You nailed it completely and succinctly. We have the most idiotic and dumbest leadership in the history of leadership. End of subject! This country is unfixable.
You ask when will Saudi Arabia get fed up. Maybe real soon seeing as they are Sunni, like Isis.
This is a great article:
In it he links to this bit of news:
Personally I’m looking forward to the day the dollar starts falling. I really don’t see it as a bad thing. It’s the only way out of this mess.
Greg perhaps you could do a piece on bank closures delve into what the hell is going on in the USA I have seen a genuine paper with nearly 1000 branches owned by Citi bank closing this month , from Sanfransisco to Washington , they call it realigning the business , I say if ya ain’t growing ya shrinking,, not a good business practice , are we watching the death throws of tbtf us banks ? hidden in plain sight ? .
I’ve said for a long time the way to change was not paying our taxes……My proposal is to file extensions…….completely legal…… Problem with all this discussion is we are surrounded by lazy, gov entitled non-thinkers…… Now you know why they dumbed down the populace and handed out the freebies…..Not to sound neg but everyone here needs to understand…..It’s over.
I just a received an up date from my source at 10:PM Friday night CST on 06/20/2014.
According to high level sources, Russian Troops are massing on the Ukrainian border. They have activated their missile defense systems. And are bring up heavy armored divisions in preparation for a quick strike attack. It could go down anytime. I thought I would pass this along to anyone who’s paying attention, that would want to know.

I like Mark Levin too….true Patriots…
Earlier this month I took my wife over to the grocery store to do some shopping. We are really ramping up our food storage this summer, and so we grabbed as much stuff on sale as we could find. When we got our cart to the register, I was expecting the bill to be large, but I didn’t expect it to be over 300 dollars.
And remember, this was just for a single shopping cart and we had consciously tried to grab things that were significantly reduced from regular price.
I almost felt like asking the cashier which organ I should donate to pay the bill.
Sadly, this is just the beginning. Food prices are eventually going to go much, much higher than this.
Also, you should get ready to pay substantially more for water as well.
According to CNBC, one recent report warned that “your water bill will likely increase” in the coming months…
U.S. water utilities face a critical economic squeeze, according to a new report—and that will likely mean higher prices at the water tap for consumers.
A survey by water-engineering firm Black & Veatch of 368 water utility companies across the country shows that 66 percent of them are not generating enough revenue to cover their costs.
To make up for the financial shortfall, prices for water are heading upward, said Michael Orth, one of the co-authors of the report and senior vice president at Black & Veatch.
“People will have to pay more for water to make up the falling revenues,” he said. “And that’s likely to be more than the rate of inflation.”
Of even greater concern is what is happening to gas prices.
According to Bloomberg, the price of gasoline hasn’t been this high at this time of the year for six years…
Gasoline in the U.S. climbed this week, boosted by a surge in oil, and is expected to reach the highest level for this time of year since 2008.
The pump price averaged $3.686 a gallon yesterday, up 1.2 cents from a week earlier, data posted on the Energy Information Administration’s website late yesterday show. Oil, which accounts for two-thirds of the retail price of gasoline, gained $2.49 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange in the same period and $4.88 in the month ended yesterday.
The jump in crude, driven by concern that the crisis in Iraq will disrupt supplies, may boost pump prices by 10 cents a gallon at a time when they normally drop, according to forecasts including one from the EIA.
And the conflicts in Iraq, Ukraine and elsewhere could potentially send gas prices screaming far higher.
In fact, T. Boone Pickens recently told CNBC that if Baghdad falls to ISIS that the price of a barrel of oil could potentially hit $200.
Heard on talk radio the fairness doctrine is coming to the internet; in the meantime the internet is just burning up. How long can the maimed steamed media hold out? Somebody there with half a brain must see the writing on the wall, well I can see the clock on the wall and got’s to go but here’s some of the fire from cyber space;
“A study by the Council on Foreign Relations and the James A. Baker III Institute at Rice University claimed that Iraq has 220 bbl of undiscovered oil; and another study by the Center for Global Energy Studies and Petrolog & Associates offered an even more optimistic estimate of 300 bbl—a number that would give Iraq reserves greater even than those of Saudi Arabia. In a Guardian interview before the war, Taha Hmud Moussa, Saddam’s deputy oil minister, said that all of Iraq’s oil reserves “will exceed 300bbl when all Iraq’s regions are explored
If true, this would mean that Iraq has roughly a quarter of all of the world’s oil.”
And that ladies and gentlemen, at the end of the day, is what everything that now follows is all about.
No way! It’s about freedumb and stuff.
It’s also about gas pipelines to Europe through Syria. Do NOT forget the pipelines.

Anyone else see this turning into a Cold War II repeat of Cold War I’s Afghanistan Baltar’s picture
The Cold War was about two large powers jockeying for power. This is a cluster-%uck brought on by the decline of the USSA and the power vacuum it creates. Cluster-&ucks end in World Wars I think.
America needs to change her mindset. Now, there are two other super powers in town.

Sounds like a mindset change to me. How is that working out?
Saudi killed Russia once with 10$ a barrel tried twice with Ukraine…
Me think it is time for US army forces to pick a side: are their with the people or with Washington DC?

Obama flushed the ranks of anyone that made the ‘wrong’ choice. What every dictator in history has ever done.
There is no help coming from the military.
The problem is people are still thinking in nationalistic terms.
This isn’t team sports. Team USA, Team Russia, Team China… . . . .ing irrelevant. You have a failing nuclear super power and two rising nuclear powers, that is all you need to know. This ends very badly for everyone.
Oh, and the Global elite are not holding hands and ushering in collapse in order to rule, they aren’t the kind of people who share power.
These are different factions of one percenters who are fighting for power against each other and using nations as chess pieces.
These are the kind of people who would rather see the world burn than lose. World War Three is coming to town.

Not Too Important’s post. Everyone loses. That’s why it’s such a bad game.
I read that Americans have killed 20-30 million people since WWII….
Is that it? Or more to come?
Mao Zedong killed more than that in one year. Whats your point? How about how many the USSR, the Germans, etc. Nice to.single.out the.USA
Cockroaches and Bankers
The filthy cockroach and the dirty banker have been scurrying around in their respective cracks almost since the dawn of time. Funny how the bankers and the cockroaches both dislike daylight. But now the regulators have found their insecticide and the roaches and bankers are scattering. All I can hope for is that the bankers get a good spraying. It would do my heart good to see several bankers laying on their back with legs and arms flailing toward their long, slow death. Now the bible says that vengeance is not mine, so I will have to do a lot of praying I suppose. Will you pray for me?
Do you watch Max Keiser on RT.
I follow him regularly and thoroughly enjoy his perspective regarding the absolute nonsense that makes up a large portion of the global finance industry. As well as having been a stockbroker, Max was also a standup comedian. Consequently much of his approach is very comical but this somehow fits the subject rather well as quite frankly much of what goes on in this cesspool is so grim and shocking that a bit of humour makes it all a bit easier to absorb.
Max pulls no punches. You should hear him when he gets going on the Jamie Dimons, the George Osbournes and the Mark Carneys of this world – nobody scares Max and no one hides from him either.
Anyway what I was getting around to is that in an animated ad for the show, RTV has Max and Stacy Herbert, his co-presenter, driving this huge fire breathing dragon shaped machine down the street whilst tearing down buildings like the World Bank headquarters and standing on banksters and their cars as they try to make off with hoards of cash. Max maintains a contrived gormless expression as he drives this monstrosity and waves to people at the same time. It is hilarious!
Calgirl – knowing what you share my thoughts on the banking cabal, I would love to know if you have seen this ad and what your reaction to it was.
PS Please keep up the great posts!
(Can’t get rid of these italics)
“The dumbest leaders in the history of our nation…” and that exasperated look on your face. That pic is worth a thousand words!
On the scale of things, the name of the Washington pro football team is small potatoes, and the government has no business interfering. But the team’s name is a racial slur and Dan Snyder, the team’s owner, should do the right thing and change it. Contrast the NBA’s railroading of Jack Sterling, whom they’ve despised for years, on the basis of a private conversation.
I think a bunch of American Indians ought to get season tix to the R-skins home games and show up in full war paint and Indian regalia and cheer loudly for the Skins — “This is our team!” — and co-opt the farce. The fans would love it and would end up not only cheering the American Indians (many of whom, I’m told, dislike the pretentious term “Native American”) but, quietly behind the scenes, would become their friends and supporters.
When the Washington Redskins were named some thirty or forty years ago, your indignation was not even on the radar. Their name is a brand name, like Cocoa Cola or General Mills……something very dear to the owner/investors and not easily changed. I personally do not see their name as a slur….maybe the Indians are proud of “their” team, did you consider that? How easily we become distracted from the real issues…..such as the possibility of WAR, or the financial ruin of an entire society!
I apologize….I was wrong about your post and your views. Please accept my apology. I am too ready to “jump” on this issue.
Maybe Greg will be kind enough to catch my missive and delete it for me!
I like most of your videos but not this one. Children facing an uncertain future to be deported back to another country to face an even more uncertain future ?? This event is not without historical precedent. America was built on families in Europe and elsewhere risking everything to emigrate across an ocean. Families sent their children away from home, out of hopelessness and poverty to have a chance of a future abroad. Clearly that is what is happening here as well.
Families without hope are sending their kids to the US on the slim hope that they might escape poverty and misery at home- and the solution is to deport them? Do you really want to end America from being ‘the land of the free, and the home of the brave’ ?
Let’s give kids a chance of a better life !
Do you have evidence that it was planned and orchestrated? If so, would you please post it ? Thanks.
Lots of people want to adopt. That’s a good place to start.
Perhaps you will take in a “family” or two. You know, the family that has TB and runs with MS13. You can even give up your job so that they can work. When Europeans immigrated to our once fine country they came with the guarantee that they would not be a burden on our society….they had sponsors to guarantee that they would not go immediately “on the dole”. They also had to pass a physical exam. If they failed, they were sent back on the next ship. So, maybe you should rethink your position. We have homeless here also, and millions without work or hope. Their families go to bed hungry too. And let’s not forget that they came legally. Go on down to the barrio and pick up a couple of homeless from there if you are so eager to give our country away.
It reminds me of the Cuban boat lift crisis when Castro emptied the jails un Cuba. Only instead of waves of criminals coming in. we’ve got waves of children, that central American Marxist regimes can’t afford to take care of. This is a total tragedy. These children are being used as political pawns.
Yes, America was built on LEGAL immigration. Why would take food and jobs from our children to give to non citizens?
And the plot thickens
And another thought…what do.30,000 stored guillotines look like….shipping boxes indistinguishable from anything else shipped…you know they wouldnt be shipped assembled. So if you somehow found a warehouse full of boxes, how would you know whats in them and how would you have time to count them? Things that defy logic and make you go hmmmm…kind of like the dog ate my email lie. You cant build a foundation of truth on the shifting sands of lies. You will always be undone
300? Why not 200 or 400? Did he see the movie the night before and now thinks he’s a Spartan? King Leonidas?
Just a great weekly wrap up Greg.
I have no real comments……What could I say?
I can’t get anyone to listen nor can I convince them to prepare here in La La suburbia.
You can just see trouble coming.
I have told my daughter , who lives in the next state, to get in the car and return home at the first sign of turmoil.
For those with children who live at a distance you might think about a family plan of action if anything extreme takes place.
Phones may be out of service and travel may be restricted if you wait too long.

The IRS claim that the crash of Lois Lerner’s hard drive resulted in the loss of 2 years of her emails is a complete lie. She may have kept copies of some of her emails on her own personal hard drive for quick access. However, the servers that routed the emails to and from all IRS employees anywhere are surely stored, backed up and retained elsewhere and accessible for many years. When working in the banking industry all emails (as well as most other forms of data) were all required to be backed up and retained for periods of many years. It has been a while since I worked there, but retention periods were for most data were generally 7+ years, emails were retained much longer. The contention that the data is completely irretrievable because of a crash of a single PC hard drive is so absurd to be a poor attempt at bad humor. To not backup this data on central servers for very long term retention would surely violate numerous gov’t laws and agency policies. If this contention really is true then surely the IT directors of the IRS would have already been fired for gross incompetence, which to my knowledge has not occurred. Additionally, the emails to/from the white house and other agencies would all be backed up to their own servers for retention. Any of those other entities would be able to identify and provide copies of emails to/from their agencies that involved Lois Lerner. If those emails are not produced then IMO Congress has a duty to appoint a special prosecutor to get to the bottom of the issue.
Just my $0.02
When evil is in confronted with the agenda they cannot argue with the truth. The only recourse they have is power and control. That has been the progressive/liberal agenda since Wilson and Roosevelt of both parties. These parasites have been trying to kill us for 100 years. That is how strong our God endowed republic was founded. Just check your history books. That is if the evil twisted progressives haven’t gotten there to rewrite it first. Maggots are one step up on the food chain from progressives. They want to turn every self thinker into dumb down sheep. Why? So government can replace God!! God bless you Greg.
Anybody know what happened to all those Blackwater type mercenaries that were in Iraq, supposedly being used as security?
Greg its starting to happen. England is the first.
Would somebody please explain to me how our economy can continue, if we lose reserve status of the dollar?
This is a follow up on my last post about Russia preparing for attack in Ukraine
from zero hedge.
Trust me, this is a dress rehearsal for the real thing. It cost money to move troops like this and the Russians don’t have it right now, with the recent embargo and gas pipe line explosion crippling their economy. NATO and the US will once again be caught flat footed when Putin throws that left hook. Buckle in, its about to get bumpy.
At the end of the day, all Americans and America itself needs to give an apology to–
Richard M Nixon….
We never got to hear the tapes….
The ruling class is deliberately destabilizing nations (Ukraine, Syria, Libya, Iraq, and Afghanistan just to name a few of the more recent ones) in order to foment chaos, and war to mask the disastrous economic policies they have pushed upon the world to benefit themselves (the 1% ruling class) at the expense of everyone else. After the wars, and the economic crash they intend to “save” us with a new global fiat currency (perhaps the “Word Bank Dollar”?) that will be the death stroke to any chance the working people have of saving the fruits of their labors. Anyone, or any nation, that resists will be destroyed. Sadly, most people will line up and drink the fiat currency Kool-Aid. Long live liberty! Long live revolution! SECEDE…SECEDE…SECEDE…
Emails are never lost. The Provider or Server has them….
I feel bad for any country that our ‘country’ interferes or intervenes with. We are no longer the Leaders of the Free World….it is almost very embarrassing what type of Leadership our USA country is doing these days….
Gas, food, and other items will Sky-Rocket.
