WNW 165-Republican Landslide, Russia War Talk, Silver Sells Out

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  11/7/14

The Republicans now control both the Senate and the House. The mainstream media said it would be close, and it turned into a blowout.  Now, all the blocking that outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was doing for President Obama is going to be unblocked, and expect many pieces of legislation to land on the President’s desk.  Yes, the President can veto legislation, but then he will be known as the President of “no.”  Now, for another prediction, but first let me highlight what Reid’s Chief of Staff said after the election this week.  David Krone said, “The President’s approval rating is barely 40 percent,” Krone said. “What else more is there to say? . . . He wasn’t going to play well in North Carolina or Iowa or New Hampshire. I’m sorry. It doesn’t mean that the message was bad, but sometimes the messenger isn’t good.” Yes, you heard correctly.  Reid’s top guy said the President isn’t a “good messenger.” I call that message throwing your party leader under the bus.  Here’s my prediction.  If the President starts to veto bills that try to move the country forward, the Democrats will vote against the President and override his vetoes.  If you think the Democrats were running against the President in this past election, just wait until 2016.  Democrats will be falling all over themselves to say they voted against the President and for the American people.  Democrats will turn on their own President to save their skins.  That said, nothing is fixed.  We still have a cash deficit approaching $18 trillion.  We still have nearly 93 million not in the work force.  We still have record numbers of people on food stamps.  Not a single person in Washington has a clue on how to get this under control before we all go over the cliff right along with the U.S. dollar.

It’s been revealed President Obama secretly wrote a letter to the Supreme Leader of Iran asking for his help in fighting the Islamic State. I thought Iran was on the State Department terror list.  I thought the U.S. and other nations were trying to get Iran to curtail its nuclear program.  I thought we were asking Sunnis to overthrow Assad in Syria that Iran (Shia Muslim) is helping to stay in power.  Confused?  So am I, and I think so is the Obama Administration on Middle East policy.  We are in the process of arming so-called moderate rebels who are Sunni while we are asking the Shia Muslims in Iran to help destroy the Islamic State.  You can’t make this up.  This is a mess, and it is leading us to war and conflict.

Financial war is raging between the West and Russia. The ruble is way down in value.  The Russians are going to make the use of dollars illegal and force people to close dollar denominated accounts.  There are sanctions from Europe and the U.S. on Russia and vice versa.  Now, we hear of a cyber-threat from Homeland Security called “Black Energy” that can shut things like nuclear power plants down.  I am not surprised because in war, even financial war, people shoot back.  Putin was out recently saying that America was creating an “empire of chaos,” and it does not want chaos to spread.  Meanwhile, China keeps opening up Yuan trading facilities.  The latest is in Canada.  This is all dollar negative long term.

Gold and silver prices are being pounded down while demand is very strong. It is so strong that the U.S. Mint reportedly sold out of Silver Eagles.  Let’s get this straight, there is sell-out demand and the price of metal is going down.  That cannot be done without criminal manipulation of the markets.  It cannot and will not last.

On the Ebola front, New York is now actively monitoring more than 350 people for Ebola. This is because of the doctor who returned from West Africa and came down with Ebola.  There are people out there who are saying Ebola is a hoax or a government black op program.  Whatever you want to call it, the story is creepy in how the government is handling this on both sides of the Atlantic.  I still have not heard of a coherent reason why there are not travel restrictions with this outbreak in West Africa.

There is another investigation into JP Morgan, this time, over its foreign exchange business. I am not optimistic of getting any convictions.  The government hasn’t convicted a single high profile banker for massive and obvious crime.  That said, there is a new star witness against JP Morgan, and Matt Tiabbi of Rolling Stone lays out the case in a story titled “The $9 Billion Witness: Meet JPMorgan Chase’s Worst Nightmare.” It’s about a former JPMorgan attorney who says she has evidence of criminal activity by top bankers.  The story also charges that Attorney General Eric Holder helped cover up massive banker crime.

    greg, A lot has happened, GREAT WEEK ANOTHER, “soon they will know what we have already known” 🙂 thankyou!


    egon von greyerz……….WOW!!!

    Japanese have just come out with additional QE at the rate of an astonishing 8 trillion yen per year, which is roughly $800 billion. Remember that the Japanese economy is only about $5 trillion per year. So this would be equivalent to the U.S. launching a new QE program totaling about $2.5 trillion per year.
    So, Eric, nothing adds up in Japan. Tax revenue is 43 trillion yen, which is $400 billion, and debt service plus social security payments are now 120 percent of tax revenues. What is happening in Japan is they are having to borrow 50 percent of the budget just to make ends meet.
    Tax revenues have been static for over a decade and expenditures are escalating fast. Even if interest rates only rose to 3.5 percent in Japan, which is very likely for a country on its way to hyperinflation, then all tax revenues would go to pay just the interest. But interest rates will eventually go above 10 percent, 20 percent, or even more. This will mean the end of the Japanese economy. The Japanese will be bankrupt and have to default.
    But on the way to their default the Japanese will print tens of quadrillions of yen and eventually hundreds of quadrillions of yen. Remember that hyperinflation comes from a collapse of the currency and that is already starting in Japan. The yen is already down about 35 percent since 2012. And just in the last week the yen has fallen 10 yen against the U.S. dollar.
    So Abe’s road to ruin for Japan is starting to work. Eric, as you know I have said for a long time that the Japanese economy will not survive, and debts, deficits, and a collapsing currency will lead to hyperinflationary depression. Of course for the aging population in Japan it will be a human disaster.
    But everyone should be watching Japan as an example of what is likely to happen in Europe and in the United States. We are not that far away from additional money printing schemes in the West. Europe is already starting to print and it might take a little bit longer in the U.S., but eventually it will happen in the United States as well.
    But it is also important to remember that once Japan starts to default, it will have major repercussions for the rest of the world. Meaning, the Japanese default will spill over quite dramatically into Europe and the United States and create enormous chaos for them as well.

    I would rather buy $20 worth of flour now, and a food grade storage bucket than trade $20 for a loaf of bread later.


    JC Davis 11/06/2014 •
    O C I had a friend tell ask me why I had so much toilet paper. I told him got it free so why not . Will my friend be such when he uses his 100.00 dollar bills in place of toilet paper? I hope so. I love the guy, but he isn’t getting my toilet paper. I have over 500 food grade buckets for sale 25.00 each.

    JC I know where i can get 30 free w/lids, call me. 🙂

    • JC Davis

      Allen. Why would Japan trade outside the dollar ? Seems they would be better off to scrap there money, and come up with a different system. What a mess. Buckets for welding on my wine vat.
      Maybe Japan should find friends they could trade goods in a fair trade.

    Hi Greg
    What a superb weekly roundup!
    You have given us an awful lot to digest here!

    Most worrying to me in all of this chaos is the exponential deterioration of Washington’s behavior under the tenure of the Obama regime. This man and is now seen by myself and many in the world now as an out of control murderous lunatic. I said when he was re-elected and I will say it again – ‘I doubt very much if he will complete his 2nd term with both his job and his life’.

    To quote from your column – Putin was out recently saying that America was creating an “empire of chaos,” and he does not want chaos to spread.
    I’m sorry Greg but like you I also have to agree with Mr Putin on this one.

    Hope you have a great weekend Greg.

    • Greg Hunter

      Thank you Col! You Too!!

      • Justin

        Greg any chance of getting David Morgan back on I want to know what’s going on With silver prices &gold prices thank you justin

        • Greg Hunter

          I’ll try to have him back on before the end of the year.

    • Colin - 'the farmer from NZ'

      I see an overwhelming awakening around the world that Mr. Putin has been seriously misjudged and that he is in fact the West’s greatest ally in the war against the Anglo American Axis.
      I agree with Michael when he states that Putin is likely to go down in history as one of the all time great leaders of the world!

      “Through Russia comes the hope of the world. Not in respect to what is sometimes termed Communism or Bolshevism — no! But freedom — freedom! That each man will live for his fellow man. The principle has been born there. It will take years for it to be crystallized; yet out of Russia comes again the hope of the world.”
      ~ Edgar Cayce

      I will also take the liberty of quoting from a recent article by Michael Thomas and urge every one to read the bottom link.

      ‘Clearly this prophetic utterance by Edgar Cayce was both prescient and perceptive. For not only have the steppes of Central Asia forged the hearts and minds of the Russian people over centuries, the tyranny of Soviet communism proved to be a crucible like no other. Russia has always been a nation of philosophers with writers like Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky molding the national consciousness since the 19th century. Given their relatively recent release from the imposed atheism of godless Marxism, Russians young and old have re-embraced the mystical traditions of the Russian Orthodox Church.

      Given this very profound and ongoing cultural transformation, a new national mindset is emerging. Undoubtedly it is one that is bending inexorably toward a more conservative and traditional society, especially one that is moving in the opposite direction of Western societies. Putin is well aware of the sensibilities which predominate throughout the Motherland. He seeks to offend no one, but at the same time will not let the crazies run the asylum as they do throughout the Anglo-American Axis. Nor will he permit the values and principles, customs and traditions of any minorities dominate Russian culture.

      In light of what is at stake for both Putin’s Russia and Obama’s USA, it is now apparent that an epic battle has been raging across the land. The most recent battle in the Ukraine is only one more among those being waged throughout the entire Middle East and beyond. Both Russia and China have seen their geopolitical positions assaulted and undermined wherever they attempt to establish new markets or engage trading partners. Particularly wherever energy resources are at stake, the wars have become more apocalyptic. So much so that many wonder if an epoch-ending World War III is around the corner. However, such an engineered Armageddon can only be foisted on the community of nations with the participation of both East and West.

      Fortunately, Putin’s Russia will not be goaded into a World War 3 scenario. Neither will Jinping’s China nor Modi’s India. Because of Putin’s unshakeable resolve and strong leadership within the BRICS Alliance, none of the nations being routinely assailed by the AAA will be triggered into full scale war. The whole world has Vladimir Putin to thank for his sane and sober response to so many conflicts and skirmishes, false flag attacks and proxy invasions being staged across the planet on a weekly basis by the Anglo-American Axis.’

    • Desert Rose

      I agree about O—but the decisions are all from his handlers, unseen Elites. Obama would rather play golf, eat burgers and mess around. His life is really over. He will never be a free man again. The Elite handlers are TERRIFIED of Putin’s resolve and integrity. That Cayce stuff is so on the mark.

      Saw an interesting detail on the back of a dollar bill: the eye above the pyramid was crossed out. Think that’s a trend?

      Great site, Greg. Thank you.

      Troy. Your probably right, but if this lady has the goods on JP Morgan they may have to set up a fall guy to go on probation for 6 months.

    Don’t forget the effect of a strong dollar on food prices especially in the Middle East, was that not the root cause of the Arab Spring?

    It seems denial is running rampant not only just in government.

    The democrats can’t believe they lost based on their platform.
    A large number of people no longer believe in anything the government says.

    Yes many people do not believe there is a Ebola problem.

    How can you expect people to believe anything when you have nothing but lies from the major news sources and the government.
    Worse we are in a high tech age where anything can be created visually and sold as real.

    When I look at many major newspaper websites they look like a raunchy bad neighborhood . This leaves a lasting impression that is very negative in my opinion.

    When people loose trust in their systems it is destined to collapse.

    In USAtoday thursday –> U.S. uniformed officers to treat Ebola patients in Liberia

    About 310 health care workers are among 4,808 people who have died from Ebola in the current epidemic, according to the World Health Organization.

    That’s about 6.5% of those that died!!
    Based on that the odds are you could run out of health care workers quickly.

    You want a reason why they down play the problem.
    If you own a 747 and a passenger has Ebola symptoms what will happen to the Jet?
    Can you afford to have it out of service for days while it’s being disinfected?

    About something you said.
    Harry Reid – Devil’s Triangle?
    Oh of course you can’t use Black Hole or you will be called a racist.

  7. bob

    by the republicans having the house and senate, does this mean we have hillary “corporations don’t create jobs. gov’t does”. rodam clinton.
    putin is calling us out on our crap that we pull. of course when the dollar is in trouble we come out fighting. we couldn’t go into Syria so lets just create as much chaos as possible and i strongly believe we created isis, isil or whatever they decide at the moment to call them. the gov’t can’t even go with one name. we have created this mess and i like your secret commentary jesters. it’s such a painted picture of what is probably happening.
    how did this woman not wind up as another suicide story. oh, oh…..slip through the cracks? nsa, fbi or cia not doing their job? time to get the broom out. where’s the carpet?
    greg, OPPURTUNITY! BUY GOLD AND SILVER! it’s the biggest sale going on. when 2 million eagles are sold in 2hrs out of the blue? somethings up!

    • Greg Hunter

      Yes Bob the powers know it’s all on sale and are rushing to buy metal at or way below mining cost.

  8. Kabous

    Telling it like it is!
    Thanks for the update on silver/gold also 🙂

  9. woody188

    I’m an independent voter, and I held my nose and voted for every Republican where no Libertarian was running. It was to send a message to Democrats, and I believe a large number of independents did the same.

    If we stop to think about it, 50% of the people don’t vote. Of the 50% that do vote, 49% are independent voters. That makes Democrats and Republicans the minority. But this minority of the people control the elections, and try to keep only members of their minority being listed on the ballot. This minority also then counts the votes.

    Why do we allow this?

    • woody188

      Wanted to add, my biggest fear is the Republican Congress giving Obama fast track on the Tran-Pacific Partnership, which is the Asian NAFTA. Same thing happened during the Clinton years to pass NAFTA. How has that worked out for blue collar Americans?

      • brian

        what should really scare the bejesus out of you is having the “Maverick” set up to chair the Senate Armed Services Committee.

    Happy Happy Friday Greg!
    What a great commentary as always, but todays was a bit more as in, “What can go wrong”?
    I think that obama can be neutralized by prosecuting him on his complacency with,
    Fast and Furious
    The i.r.s. cover-up
    Encouraging and promoting the flood of illegals flooding the southern border
    ETC ETC !!!
    The American people need to be reminded of these things as he, his V.P. and A.G. are prosecuted!
    However if all 3 resign ‘immediately’, these charges will be reconsidered, possibly?
    Thank you Greg.

  14. Matt Jaymes

    I was watching the Cartoon Nonsense Network last night when the breaking news promulgated the story concerning the Trojan horse virus. And before Mr. Blitzer could even finish the sentence, I piped up and said aloud “Let me guess, the Russians planted it” and sure enough………

    Firstly I doubt that there is any such virus, and if there is, it was probably planted by the CIA to potentially stoke a black flag event. I’m loath to believe that with all the pernicious and ubiquitous spying the USA does (friends, foes and citizens alike) that nothing was detected anywhere at any time about a potential cyber attach, the result of which would have been the implementation of cyber counter measures! Secondly, this alleged bug was never executed, that is: it didn’t actually do anything, so why even bother with the story? Unless of course, pumping “the story” was the real game. Thirdly, in as much as our government is a collection of psycho-maniacal malcontents, is anyone really that surprised another sovereign may take offense and attempt some sort of quid pro quo?

    The long and short of it is this: the entire world economy is about to implode and central bankers & their collusive brethren (the governments) need a scape goat – so they’re going to manufacture several: Ebola, financial warfare, real warfare, cyber warfare and psyops, all to keep prying eyes off the ball.

    With sites like USA Watchdog, “The Dawg” – we, that is the serfs, at least have a fighting chance. Well done and thanks Greg.

      The CIA Role in Narcotics Trafficking
      Share on facebookShare on twitterShare on emailShare on pinterest_shareMore Sharing Services
      peter dale scottPart 2 of Counter-intelligence: Shining a Light on Black Operations

      by Dr Stuart Jeanne Bramhall

      “Deep state” is Part 2 of a five part documentary by Scott Noble called Counter-Intelligence: Shining a Light on Black Operations. Historian and former diplomat Peter Dale Scott coined the term Deep State to describe the shadow government that operates outside our so-called democratic institutions to service the needs of America’s wealthy elite.
      This episode focuses on close historical links between the Mafia and CIA and the role of narcotics trafficking in all major CIA covert operations. CIA drug trafficking serves two main purposes. In addition to providing off the books (not reportable to Congress) income for clandestine operations, it’s also a source of ready-made criminal networks. The latter are valuable as a conduits for weapons delivery to CIA mercenaries and as lethal enforcers of corporate interests against labor and human rights activists.
      Scott, who is interviewed at length, stresses the instrumental role of the CIA in ALL global narcotics trafficking. The converse is also true. Citing the French Connection (centered in Marseilles) and the Golden Triangle (in Southeast Asia) as prime examples, he makes the case that all major narcotics hubs collapse following CIA withdrawal from the region.
      “Deep State” also shines a light on current drug operations in Afghanistan and Colombia. At present Afghanistan is the world’s leading heroin producer, a direct result of CIA involvement in the region. Colombia, in turn is the world’s largest purveyor of cocaine, thanks to the CIA decision to use Colombia to “block the spread” of communism from Cuba to the rest of Latin America.
      According to filmmaker Scott Noble, all major Wall Street banks have engaged in laundering profits from illicit narcotics. Illegal drugs are America’s third biggest commodity, with the wealthy elite siphoning off the vast majority of drug profits. They also rake in immense profits from the prison industrial complex, a growth industry that owes its existence to the so-called War on Drugs. Wells Fargo and other Wall Street banks are major investors in the prison privatization industry.
      Part 2 concludes with an examination of Obama’s campaign to prosecute whistleblowers for exposing criminal misconduct by the CIA and other federal intelligence agencies. Included is a detailed discussion of whistleblowing as a fundamental first amendment right. The whole purpose of guaranteeing freedom of speech, in the eyes of the founding fathers, was to guarantee the right to speak out against government misconduct.

    From ABC News
    General Mills cuts its sales and profit outlook for the year on Friday, citing persistent sales weakness in the U.S. food industry.

    Due to a food stamp economy as I said before.

    US food companies are over priced for the average American.

    • JC Davis

      Vincent G I went to Kroger to get buckets yesterday, and noticed how high food prices have gone, and the ever shrinking portions. 3.50 for a pound of macaroni and cheese. It is hard to make a one person meal for less then 5 bucks.

      • JC Davis

        Recommended 3 meals a day equals 5,500 dollars a year for one person. I can only wonder how much of this food is fukushima food. I may have to get a radiation tester to shop for food.

    • JC Davis

      Vincent. U.S. foods is being bought out by cisco ore. According to a close friend. Not sure if your talking about usa or U S foods company.

    I remember reading a story a couple of weeks ago about how China is seeking to have a greater role in the IMF, that the matter is coming up for review/decision in 2015/2016, and that for any favorable consideration — the IMF is requiring China to make additional economic “disclosures.” It would seem to me that the IMF would want to know China’s gold reserves. The article suggested China’s further disclosures would be made in next few months.

    I can’t help but wonder is the gold smash isn’t an effort to make gold less attractive to the Swiss before their vote. If China released its gold holding numbers prior to the Swiss vote, imagine the impact it could have on the vote and the cumulative impact both could have on the gold price.

    I have been looking for more stories on this China/IMF story, but can’t find them anywhere. Have you come across anything more on this?

    Andrew W

    • Winston Churchill

      Its supposed to be decided in Brisbane at the G20 meet on Dec.15/16th this year.
      With ,or without the US agreeing.
      Expect a lot of announcements in the next five weeks.Its no coincidence that
      the Swiss vote is happening now.
      Lagardes number 7 forecast still has time to run.

      • Greg Hunter

        Interesting and thank you.

        • Paul

          Now it is making sense why China has been excelerating gold purchases . Just the past month nearly 200 tones alone. To join IMF and by extension have the Yuan part of the SDR weighting China would have to demonstrate to the world it’s currency is backed by strong gold reserves. They have cleverly suckered the USA/London gold cartel to cough up the West’s gold . Now with their aim to join IMF it would seem logical to declare their “official” gold reserves before December meeting. Just my humble opinion!

          • Andrew W

            I agree. No one should be surprised if China announces their new gold holdings in the next five weeks.

            They have to know that announcing will send the price of gold much higher. If they are ready for that, and want that, it would make sense to release the number the week before the Swiss vote. The impact of both could perhaps send gold $500/oz higher.

  18. Paul

    Greg, another great show. Speaking of silver manipulation, zero hedge reported this morning that silver futures were smashing UPWARDS following non farm payroll news. However, the powers-that-be HALTED silver futures ! Then the price backed off!!! This is criminal! Something is rotten here. Obviously silver shorts were about to be slaughtered! Perhaps you might be able to dig a little deeper into this story but if in fact it true then the crime is now out in the open. As always , keep the great work. We need your valuable voice!


    • Greg Hunter

      They have clearly resorted to out-in-the-open criminal activity to prop up the economy. That’s how we know this is winding down.

      • Dennis Downing

        It looks like what Harvey Organ was saying about the physical silver shortage playing out in Nov. might be happening. Let the truth be known, Silver paper contracts do not equal real silver! Great show Greg!

          Thank you Dennis.

    Greg: you appear to have some optimism that the Senate takeover will change anything such as banker criminality and corruption, the growing police state, the purposeful decimation of the middle class and the abrogation of the Rule of Law. Unfortunately the Rothschild Zionist cabal has done their job only too well; especially since 1913, and on steroids since 9/11. There is too much evidence that all 535 (with few exceptions) are bought and paid for as well as SCOTUS ( see Citizens United and Obamacare, both blatantly unconstitutional). I’m afraid that there is little hope left for future generations, as the American Government is more interested in the protection of Israel in the CIA-directed destabilization of the Middle East than in the well-being of US citizens,

  21. NC Gal

    Great summary and presentation, Greg! I have to confess that I was laughing out loud at several points in the video because the way you mocked the insanity of how things are being done made what should have been cause for alarm into material for a Saturday Night Live skit. Given the way you put the facts together, independent of the spin and manipulation, as my former husband would have said, “Even Ray Charles could see that!” (no offense to blind people intended)

    There was a man who was featured on the conspiracy site run by Jeff Rense who coined a phrase that stuck with me, even though the rest of the man’s material came to nothing at all. It was “the terminal madness of the end times.” I think that’s what you’re really describing, and once again, while there isn’t any logic to these behaviors (it seems obvious that they are working at cross-purposes with anything that might actually benefit anyone other than the elites), it does fit with my expectations of rising chaos as the social, economic, and geophysical realms come unraveled. The chaos itself is like a rising cloud of dust that masks what is going on behind the scenes.

    These are the distractions, intentional or otherwise, that Rob Kirby identified as keeping us from really seeing what’s going on. Great job and great presentation, Greg. I just hope you don’t pop a blood vessel from being so animated in elaborating just how insane all of this is! I’m still chuckling, but I do know that serious times are coming and the insanity just shows how desperate the puppets are to carry out their orders.

    The elites can’t lose, no matter how it goes, until and unless there is something on the order of divine intervention or the kinds of massive earth changes that are beyond what the elites can control or survive. Take your pick. Prophecies come and go, but “even Ray Charles” could see where this is heading!

    I rediscovered the story about China and the IMF.


    I thought the most interesting sentence in the article was: “In addition, China still has to release more statistics to the Fund about its monetary reserves and other matters.”

    It looks to me like China will have to report its gold holdings to the IMF by next year, if it wishes to have the Yuan considered as part of the SDR basket.

    I certainly think it would be interesting if they released the number just prior to the Swiss vote. It makes me wonder if this latest gold take down might be China’s engineered last-discount buying opportunity. What is the open interest for Comex Dec delivery now up to?

    Thank you Greg.
    It looks increasingly possible that the oligarchs that have the U.S. and Russia under their control, will use a military confrontation between the west and the east as means of covering their tracks in the face an economic reset.

    The recent buying frenzy in gold and silver serves a dual purpose for the cabal that controls our financial system. First, it should be clear that when you drain the supply of a resource, the price will automatically increase with demand. My source predicted this event take place in Mid September from the data he received, but he was off on his estimates. What follows is more important.

    The cabal will use the price spike that is coming as a mechanism to collapse the dollar and transition investors into the gold backed RMB market. Now you can begin to understand why there was such a sudden expansion of RMB hubs throughout the world during the past several months, including Canada. Several of the major world banks are already on board with the plan. HSBC, CITI, and many others. Ukraine was simply used as a straw man to illustrate to the world how pathetically weak the United States has become in order to destroy confidence in the dollar. How much more proof do you need, when you see a U.S. President begging for help from a terrorist state like Iran?

    I don’t know how long it will take for the whole process to play out, that depends on a multitude of factors that no one can predict. But I can promise you one thing. The cabal has a plan, and its in motion.

    One last thing I wanted to mention. I looked at who was on the RMB board of directors, and low and behold, there was a CEO from the City of London Corporation. Imagine that ?:

      Here’s the reason why the western banking cabal is so freaked out, and why they are buying up massive amounts of silver on short contracts.
      The writing is on the wall people. Greg has posted so much information about the collapse of the dollar, and had so many guest on his site to support this idea, that I am beginning to wonder what there is left to post here.

    An interview with David Marsh, the think tank guy who wrote the USA Today article, would be fascinating.

    What is his basis for writing that China still needs to provide the IMF its data on its official reserves? Does he know when the IMF requires such info?

    Economist Martin Armstrong is predicting that rising resentment against the status quo as a result of economic inequality is likely to cause a serious political uprising before 2016.

    “It looks more and more like a serious political uprising will erupt by 2016 once the economy turns down. That is the magic ingredient. Turn the economy down and you get civil unrest and revolution,” writes Armstrong.

    In making the forecast, the economist cites the case of 90-year-old World War 2 veteran Arnold Abbott, who is being targeted by authorities in Fort Lauderdale for defying a newly passed city ordinance that criminalizes feeding the homeless, an example says Armstrong of how “laws in the USA have simply gone nuts.”

    Armstrong, who correctly predicted the 1987 Black Monday crash as well as the 1998 Russian financial collapse, asserts that the downfall of the system will be its inability to gauge the anger that Americans currently feel towards their government.

    “You just cannot make up this stuff. And the Democrats cannot figure out that the people are getting pissed-off at who is ever in office? And what about the police?” asks Armstrong. “Is this just turning into thugs with badges who just enforce whatever law some nut-job politician writes? What if they passed a Herod type law to curb population and decree that everyone must kill their first-born. When does reason ever return to the police force these days? They no longer protect the people – they protect the politicians against the people.”

    The other day some of my Japanese university students were shocked when I showed them the classic documentary film which is available on YouTube: “911 Mysteries.” Before viewing the film they told me that politics is “boring” but once they watched it and learned how 911 was a blatant false flag operation, they were energized with curiosity and nearly jumped out of their seats. They mentioned that Japan had used false flag terror in the 1930s in order to invade Manchuria and claim it as its own. These students were making connections, creating mental patterns based on the substantially unbiased evidence I had presented to them — they were learning.

    Since many still accept the official story of 911 it is important for us to spread understanding as 911 has hastened the New World Order of domestic and international oppression. It also represents the cognitive dissonance in the public mind which in the same way accepts that nuclear energy is a benefit for mankind.

    The fall of the Berlin Wall and collapse of the USSR was not the spontaneous series of major events that the Mainstream Media (MSM) would have us believe. Neither was it the result of President Ronald Reagan’s request: “Mr. Gorbachev, Tear Down This Wall”; although his Hollywood background made for some great (and convincing) political theatre. “Perestroika” and “glasnost” were simply buzzwords bandied about to present the appearance of a fundamentally changed USSR. Yes, Russia did become liberalized especially in contrast to Soviet Communism, but only so it could be neo-liberalized by the banksters.

    In fact, the entire dissolution of the USSR was the product of numerous top secret meetings which took place with very high level (as in highest level) representatives from the USSR, USA, UK and other major AAA nations and WSG controllers. By and large the most important of these meetings concerned the meticulously engineered business and commercial, banking and investment aspects necessary for an orderly breakup of the USSR republics and its eastern European satellites.
    By 1989 the pendulum of power had swung from those who wished to see the USSR and her satellites controlled by communism to those who wanted to directly control her prodigious natural wealth, industrial base and other national assets by way of naked predatory capitalism. Toward that end the many notorious Russian oligarchs were each selected and appointed by the Western coalition of bankers to oversee the outright theft of all major assets and natural resources from the Russian people. This unique form of corrupt predatory capitalism was at first hidden from public view as it was implemented to strip everything of value from both the state and the citizenry.

    This is my first stop on Friday mornings to get updated on important things that really matter. An important thing that matters is precious metals. I have been $ cost averaging into physical gold and silver the last several weeks in anticipation of the bottom and I think we are there. My reliable local dealer is out of inventory. Their premiums for silver have gone from $2.25 to $3.50 for eagles and from $2.25 to $2.95 for maples which they do not have in stock for the first time. Something is definitely up big time.

    • Greg Hunter

      They are sold out at the mint too (Silver Eagles). Thank you for sharing this street level information.

      • JC Davis

        Greg. I thought things were crazy last year with the manipulation. This is manipulation on steroids.

      • Sayonara

        Further evidence that physical silver is decoupling from paper. Just checked my dealer and premiums per my post above since last week have gone from $2.25 to $3.50 and now this week $3.75 for eagles and from $2.25 to $2.95 and now this week $3.50 for maples which they still do not have in stock but are taking orders. Interesting that is not occurring with gold. I speculate that silver is being hoarded as potential currency and gold is too expensive to be used as such.

  37. Bob

    Do you think that TPTB are smashing the price of silver and gold in an attempt to “encourage” private holders to sell? Sort of a back-door confiscation process to increase the available supply?


    • Greg Hunter

      The banks and strong hands are buying all they can get in the physical market. When you see the U.S. mint sell out of 2014 Silver Eagles in a short amount of time that means the silver bars are gone and they are moving down to smaller increments–coins by the monster box.

    Edward Cate says………“Not a single person in Washington has a clue on how to get this under control before we all go over the cliff right along with the U.S. dollar.” ………………. It is mathematically impossible to get this under control. Same with the other western countries. They all chose the printing route ( with prodding from the US) . The only question is how long they can keep juggling plates……. As for our leaders in Washington; attorneys were not trained in math, science, or economics (sorry to you attorneys that actually learned how the world works before you decided to pursue telling the rest of us how to live our lives). Most members of congress are over their heads and clueless. It seems like that’s a prerequisite for Washington membership.

  39. Jeff

    Just saw Bob’s comment … “Do you think that TPTB are smashing the price of silver and gold in an attempt to “encourage” private holders to sell? Sort of a back-door confiscation process to increase the available supply? ” ………… Yes, exactly without a doubt………. I’ve long believed we are being set up for debt slavery. Wiping out the middle class assets (mostly seniors) one bust at a time. Then enslaving the younger generations with a college debt that might be impossible to pay. Enticing tapped out consumers into more auto debt is another noose around the neck………… I believe they want us dependent, broke, indebted, and especially without silver and gold when the big “reset” occurs………. Would you say they’re doing a good job ?

    Has anyone else on the comment board seen a report that a large group of the “Free Syrian Rebels” the ones supplied weapons by the US, has submitted to ISIS and turned over all their heavy weapons, including anti-tank and shoulder launched ground to air missiles? Seen the report last week and can’t remember where. Age kicking in! Anyway, this wasn’t a small group. Reported as being two brigades in size.

  42. Ned Kelly Esq.

    Don’t be confused by what’s going on in the middle east.

    We support the Iraq government in the fight against IS.

    We don’t like the Islamic State, “IS.”, but hey, IS, is, bought and paid for by Saudi Arabia, ARAMCO, whom we like and has bought and paid for us, the US., long before IS, that also birthed IS., “thank you John McCain”, whom Barack Hussein Ebola, still calls IS. by it’s birth name, “ISIL”, whom Vlad, “the Impaler” Putin called, “those liver eater’s”, as the reason he refused to join the new world disorder in it’s removal of the blue eyed British educated Arab, Assad, so the disorder crowd could build it’s pipelines thru Syria, even though it would have shown Ebola-Obama-ram ma-through, how to do the same, thru North Dakota, but he didn’t want to offend, Warren, peace, bluff in, Buffett, who wants to be the richest man in the graveyard, not just the train yard!

    So our deep state, “doe doe’s”, don’t like Assad in Syria, but our secretary in state never tells us why, could it be, he like’s to see all those slaughtered Christians, being able to get to paradise much sooner than much later, dispatched by IS. and the evil Assad is preventing him from allowing our only begotten ISIl, “IS”, from getting their finale meal of “chopped Christian liver” and to think Assad’s old buddy, John Kerry tried to pass the gas on Assad, but the evil Putin, called him out, in his now infamous remark, that Kerry is, “a liar and knows he’s a liar”! Now if you find that confusing or amusing, why in the hell, would Vlad Putin save our dear leaders butt, whom embarrassed himself and in turn all gringo’s with his line in the sand B.S., by handing Obomb’o a way out of WWZ, that’s why, thank you!

    So as I was slaying, for some reason we don’t like Assad in Syria, but the maimed steamed media never tells us why and they never tell us why Obama and John McCain’s baby ISIL, “IS.”, want Assad out too? Is their a neo-conflict of interest there in Syria? Or are they all just smokin too much wacky tobaccky and to think we haven’t even touched on their pipe dreams for Ukulele Ukraine and mother Ruska! By the by, are the Ruska’s really in Svenska waters, can Alaska, be next? Maybe McCain can petition congress again for man-pads, but this time not just Syrian rebels, but for the Inuit? Please just leave am for the seals John, US. Navy seals John! Remember them John! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0omB9LwuWhE

    We don’t like Iran, but Iran supports their fellow Shia in Iraq in it’s fight against IS.
    But are our new enemies we are fighting supposed to be on the Sunni side of the street in this unholy war. So some of our friends support our enemies , some enemies are now are friends, and some of our enemies are fighting against our other enemies, who we want to lose, but we don’t want some enemies who are fighting our other enemies to win.

    If the people we want to defeat are defeated, they could be replaced by people we like even less and this was started by us invading a country to drive out terrorists who were not actually there until we went in drive them out.

    It’s quite simple, really. Do you understand now? NO? Well now;

    Here is an Ebola proposal every member of Congress should fully support .

    Simply require all flights from West Africa to land in Washington DC and all the passengers onboard these flights given a free tour of Congress and the White House before being sent on their way.

    If a quarantine of West Africans is truly not necessary as the Government says there should be little objection to such free tours of all Government offices because it will provide “total proof to the public” that there is nothing to worry about as the Government now says … and there is also an upside in that passengers will not be detained for a full 21 days but only a day or two at most.

    If it then happens that the entire Government starts to become infected by the Ebola virus … for public health, safety and Government continuity reasons all Government officials will have to voluntarily quarantine themselves at a FEMA camp and new representatives appointed to take their place who then may take more seriously their responsiblity toward the public’s health and safety.

      Sounds like a very sound strategy to me.

  47. teri

    @ Outlookingin,

    There have been many instances of the Free Syrian Army giving their US weapons to ISIS, and their members defecting to ISIS. The latest might be this one, dated 2 Nov.:

    “November 2
    “BEIRUT — The Obama administration’s Syria strategy suffered a major setback Sunday after fighters linked to al-Qaeda routed U.S.-backed rebels from their main northern strongholds, capturing significant quantities of weaponry, triggering widespread defections and ending hopes that Washington will readily find Syrian partners in its war against the Islamic State.
    “Moderate rebels who had been armed and trained by the United States either surrendered or defected to the extremists as the Jabhat al-Nusra group, affiliated with al-Qaeda, swept through the towns and villages the moderates controlled in the northern province of Idlib, in what appeared to be a concerted push to vanquish the moderate Free Syrian Army, according to rebel commanders, activists and analysts.
    “Other moderate fighters were on the run, headed for the Turkish border as the extremists closed in, heralding a significant defeat for the rebel forces Washington had been counting on as a bulwark against the Islamic State. […]”

    You must bear in mind that both the Free Syrian Army and al Nusra Front were on the State Dept.’s list of terrorist groups for years, and still may be, for all I know. Although we are now told that the Free Syrian Army is a “good group” and al Nusra Front a “bad group”, we were arming both last year in an effort to topple Assad. One US General remarked that it was “ironic” that we were arming affiliates of al Qaeda. The chief of staff of the FSA (Free Syrian Army), Gen. Bashir, admitted in Sept. that the FSA is really run by the CIA:

    “[…] Another problem: the U.S. can’t find competent indigenous leadership for their anti-Assad campaign. In September, Gen. Abdul-Ilah al Bashir, the FSA’s chief of staff (who defected from the Syrian Army in 2012 to join the rebels), told the press that the FSA now consists of over 70 groups all of whose commanders now report to the CIA. “The leadership of the FSA is American,” he admitted openly. […]”

    Furthermore, it is known that the FSA (the good rebels, remember) kidnapped at least one, and probably both, of the American journalists and sold them to ISIS, who later beheaded them. We are arming these guys.

    The average American can’t keep track of who is who, and I don’t think we are supposed to. It’s just a new phase of the War on Terror which they are running because they think war spending boosts GDP (which, of course, it does, but I don’t think that’s how one would deliberately boost GDP in a sane country) and furthermore, it is an attempt to cover up the economic slaughter both continuing and to come. Keeps people distracted, diverts money away from domestic use and into the hands of the MIC, useful as a tool to continue austerity measures, continues the pillage of the Middle East, etc. I am beginning to think that ISIS itself is really the CIA; it’s all too “Wag the Dog” to even be real. We know ISIS is selling oil on the black market, but we don’t sanction the countries that are buying it from them? Interestingly, that number seems to include two European countries, by the way. We “can’t find” where ISIS strongholds are to bomb them; really? They have fleets of trucks and armored vehicles in a desert and we have spy satellites everywhere, but somehow they traipse around undetected until suddenly they “capture” a city. We are dropping weapons from airplanes in the hopes that the “good guys” will find them before ISIS does? Who runs a war that way? Even Hitler was willing to blow up the German infrastructure and wreck all the Army’s materiel before he took a chance of any of it falling into the hands of the Allied Forces.

    None of it makes any sense. Maybe because it’s all BS.

    Hi Greg,
    How come milk is down to 2.19 a gallon, yet at the same time butter doubled to 5.00?
    Is it all going to China, as pecans have? Butter (or any single commodity or asset) doubling in price in a few weeks should garner some interest. Do you think Fort Knox is being refilled with butter bars as they can easily be converted into a very liquid asset? (just kidding about that)
    thanks for all,
