WNW175-Financial War and Shooting War Intensifying-No Real Recovery, Obama Veto

4finBy Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (1.30.15)

War is what I am going to concentrate on in this Weekly News Wrap-Up.  There is no doubt a massive financial war is going on right now.  If this keeps up, it will only lead to a shooting war and a very big one at that.  The EU wants to put another round of sanctions on Russia, and get this, Greece is signaling it will veto that action.  So, not only does the recently elected Greece leadership want debt forgiveness, it also looks like it is going to side with Russia over more sanctions.  Greece is a NATO country, and it’s making noises that may close NATO military bases and withdraw from the alliance. All this is destabilizing the EU economy and the geopolitical situation there.  There is no doubt that part of the world is inching towards more war over Ukraine.  The cherry on top of the cake came from rarely heard former leader of Russia, Mikhail Gorbachev, who said, “Have they lost their minds?”  Talking about actions taken recently by the U.S., Gorbachev goes on to say, “The ‘cold’ war will “lead to a ‘hot’ war.”  I am not advocating war, I am just telling you it looks like one is coming.

Want more war possibilities?  Look no further than the Middle East.  The hottest of hot spots is looking more and more like Israel.  Ever since Israel bombed Hezbollah positions in Syria near the Golan Heights, the shooting has been picking up on both sides. This is all part of the reason why the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, is going to talk to Congress about Iran, its nuclear program and more sanctions.  The President is furious over this, and I think it’s because there may be enough votes on both sides of the isle to override a veto.  Congress will no doubt pass legislation to strengthen sanctions against Iran if talks fail to curtail Iran’s nuclear program.  Meanwhile, Iran has vowed to attack Israel because of the airstrike that killed an Iranian General and a son of a Hezbollah leader in Syria.  It is reported Iran has said it will attack Israel from the West Bank.  Iran also reportedly told the U.S. State Department it was going to attack Israel.  This is a new wrinkle.  Iran did not say it was going to have Hezbollah or Hamas attack Israel.  It stated Iran was going to attack Israel.  This is a whole new level of rhetoric, and it is definitely a dangerous escalation of war talk.  If Iran did directly attack Israel, what would a counterattack be for Israel?  Can you see how this could spiral out of control?  This is “war and rumors of war” talk, and I don’t think anyone is bluffing.

President Obama has made a record high amount of veto threats to the new Republican Congress.  There are nine Obama veto threats in all.  I told you that he will likely veto any additional sanctions in Iran, but his first veto is probably be going to be the Keystone XL Pipeline legislation that just passed in the Senate.  Now, the House and the Senate have to get the language sorted out, and then it will be sent to the President’s desk.  Former Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid used to stop all bills in the Senate.  Now, the Republicans hold the Senate, and a flurry of bills will be passing through to President Obama’s desk.  Will he now become the President of “No” like the Republicans were branded?  Nine Democrats voted for the Keystone bill with the Republicans in the Senate.  This is the trend I told you was coming.  We will see if Congress can override a veto if one comes.

The Federal Reserve said it will remain “patient” on raising interest rates.  We keep hearing about the good economy, and signs abound that the economy is not good, at least for Main Street.  I just want to make my point with recent bad news on housing. According to the Commerce Department, home ownership just hit fresh 20 year lows in the last quarter of 2014.  How can there be a so-called “economic recovery” when homeownership is hitting fresh lows?

Finally, CNN is pushing for a North American Union in an opinion piece posted on CNN.com.  Remember when people said this was crazy conspiracy theory talk a few years ago?  I guess it’s not so crazy.  The writers say we don’t need a Constitution, and to me, that means we don’t need any rights such as in the Constitutional Amendments.  Simply outrageous, and CNN should be ashamed to be used as a New World Order propaganda tool.

    Hi Greg,
    For several months I have been visiting USA Watchdog and encouraging others to frequent your reports. Now I wish to encourage you. Write the editorial and ask CNN to post it! The worst that can happen is that we have another excellent article to read on USAWatchdog.com.

    • Greg Hunter

      They did not renew my contract because I was warning that all the banks were in trouble in late 2007 and early 2008. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hqzCnNsmU0 They do not want me on their air and I don’t want to be there either. I have a growing concern here with USAW and they are laying off people by the hundreds. I think that says it all. You are very kind and I thank you for your support.

      • Rodster

        Wow Greg, you nailed that one back in 2008. Thanks for posting that YT video. I rarely watched CNN but I never knew there was a show or segment called Fear Factor.

        Yeah I could see why you would make the corporate wigs a little nervous.

      • Mark

        There is no question about it. You are way too good for CNN. I am sure that most people here will agree. They, CNN, didn’t get the nickname “Communist News Network” for nothing.

      • Bruno T. Bosconovitch III

        Greg, most of the advertisers on CNBC, “99%,” require a growing market to contribute to CNBC’s coffer’s, so of course they must because of necessity be biased towards a growing market, at least they think so, but in reality not, thats why anybody in his right mind knows you do not plume CNBC for market advice except in rare instances like the one that no doubt brought down the ire of the banksters and Goldman Sachs on your employer CNBC and ultimately on you for your honesty and heartfelt concern in giving it! They were more about buying time for their cronies then warning their viewers, ” the real customers,” of the danger ahead and unfortunately they eliminated the messenger, you, instead of admitting the fact the banksters had no clothes, as you stated, being fleeced by the wall street traders, the biggest one of all, Hank Paulson, who later was the one appointed by the Obummer administration, to fleece then the taxpayers, to recoup the banksters stolen loot, setting up once again the American taxpayer to be left holding the bag as they watch their God given republic disintegrate into the dustbin of history thanks to Bill Clinton, who never met a crook he didn’t like, who to the delight of the Wall St. crony capitalist pig’s, eliminated the Glass Steagall banking act of 1933, the only law, that kept the wolves out the hen house, that are now poised to finish off us all off in not just a deep depression, but a tribulation of biblical proportion, seen coming long ago by none other than the Son of God! Yikes! ! Informal exclamation;
        expressing shock and alarm, often for humorous effect.

          I think I was booted for that kind of thinking but yes it was the best thing that happened to be. The transition was long and very tough though. I have been at this sins 2009. When I first went online I would get 10 people a day some days. You are vey kind and I thank you for your kind words of support.

          • JM

            There’s a lot of pretty women over at CNN. That must have been a tough decision for you to walk away from all that..

            • Greg Hunter

              CNN did not renew my contract–that simple. The ladies there had nothing to do with it. The people who worked there with me were very nice.

                I respect that as well, Greg. You are a good man. I find it interesting that the MSM is inundated with beautiful woman delivering the news. The skirts seem much higher than they were 10 years ago. I can only believe that this is part of the game being played against us.

      • Peter

        Hi Greg,I just wanted to thank you for all you are doing and keeping some of us brits ypdated with what is going in the world.I regret the media is very bad in the UK and not terribly informative and the only paper that is straight forward in this country is The Guardian.It does not mince words (like your good self)It is so hard to find anything re the US as to what is going on in the world of war,politics and economics.The gutter press in the UK only submits to the Neanderthals who only wish to read about sport and sex and who is sleeping with who.It is very rare to overhear conversation about any of the articles that you write and comment on.I think that much in the UK is being withheld and articles and items are printed on a ‘need -to-know’ basis….and we don’t need to know it would seem.
        Best of luck in all you do.Warm regards and happy new year.

          You are very kind my friend. Please remember to stock up on food and water, At the very least it will never be cheaper, and the very worst, it will keep you out of the streets!! “Fear Not” fine UK friend!! God save the Queen and most importantly her people.

          • Peter

            Thanks for your kind comments.Any links from the UK of importance I will send to you.I feel sad that many people in the UK are unaware,stupid or ignorant of news and vital facts and having seen Gerald Celente many times he echoes the same rhetoric about the US citizens.I like Gerald but he does get excited.I do like him and your style also.I have a feeling that the US would be hit first then the rest of Europe would suffer a chain reaction.With our strong sovereign currency we may not feel immediate effects.However,one cannot be complacent.I will store water as you suggest and tinned food.Be in touch I’m sure.

            I enclose another link for you.This website and journal sails very close to the wind and ruffles the feathers of our Government Ministers.One or two journalists have been beaten up for their enthusiastic research and Government probing of the current and on-going investigations of three members of the House of Lords and three MPs from Her Majesties Government.It has also been suggested that a top official member of MI5 has been involved also top ranking police commissioner.All unnamed of course.Being a journalist yourself you may find it good reading. and I do not expect you are familiar with EXARONEWS.Read it but you need not publish my link or comments on the WEB if you wish not to.Warm Regards Peter

They think Gold is for the festive & marriage season only & property has just one direction & thats UP !……they say TOUGH TIMES DONT LAST, TOUGH PEOPLE DO…..sad but true.
        Never mind, you surely have my support …GOD Bless you & FEAR NOT !!!!!!!

        • Greg Hunter

          Thank you for the promotion in India. “Gold is money.” We have been told for decades that debt is money (FRN’s) and bonds (debt) are an asset. We are about to find out either is true.

    Hi Greg
    The Russians and Chinese will pull out the rug underneath the US$ as last resort (to prevent the war). BTW the US$ is on the leave, the only question is will it leave with a bang or fizzle out?
    Everybody sane enough will prefer the later.

    In Middle East, well the Russians and Chinese will prevent a major war.

      There will be no shortage of food and stuff.

      That means it will take more dollars to buy the food and stuff
      So, take your dollars and buy things now that go up in price to offset the future rise in food and stuff.

    Hi Greg,
    here are my forecasts:
    1- we will have a huge western economic collapse probably before september 2015,
    2- social unrest,massive riots all over the world,
    3- Third World (and last ?) War.
    This war will oppose two major camps.Zionist Jews (not all Jews) + Zionist Westerners + their Islamist puppets (Al qaeda,ISIL,Boko haram…) versus Russia + China + authentic Muslims.
    For sure it will be very very ugly.

    • Mohammad

      It will oppose Jesus vs Dajjal
      Each camp has followers, crystal clear lines at those moments of truth. Then Jesus prevails.
      That is the final chapter of humanity , prosperous short time till the end.


      • Galaxy 500

        Yes, Jesus will prevail but not the way you think. Jesus is a Jew and he is the son of the One True God, Jehovah, the God of Israel. My suggestion is to cast off false religions while there is still time.
        Peace to.the.followers of God and desolation.to.the.followers of all.false gods.

    Greg ,I’m really glad you are not the Alex Jones of financial reports. Jones seems to parody himself with his alarmist reporting thus making his message less credible. I sometimes wonder whether Jones is part of the controlled opposition as he his style often runs contrary to his own cause.
    Thanks Greg for credible and well balanced reports .I look forward to many more.

    • Greg Hunter

      Thank you Ross. For the record I like Mr. Jones but I do not personally know him.

      • Ross

        On one occasion a few months ago I remember Jones interviewing Dr Paul Craig Roberts. Dr Roberts became annoyed with his continual butting in on his conversation. Dr Roberts “Would you let me finish please ?” Jones does good work but I don’t like his style and lack of manners.

    • Henry

      Peace would so much easier to achieve if there were no religions. We’re all on this lonely planet together. It’s tragic that so many people can’t see the Big Picture, and instead, sweat the little things and look for reasons to demonize each other. It’s discouraging to see so many people still fighting over superstition…

  9. bob

    greg, great info. yes, soros is the man behind this north american union. i heard this story for years. aka the amero. just like the euro, which is not working. and obama commented on this according to jerome corsi, in an interview on coast to coast. soros also gave 33 million to groups involved with the ferguson riots. may want to look that up. jerome corsi would be a great interview. he writes on wnd. ?
    this also shows where cnn is. why, there are a lot of people in this country that will do anything for money. also, they are in on destroying what once was the greatest country in the world. greed, godless, power,always leads to destruction.
    one last thing greg, the info on the internet is things aren’t going to well for the powers that be. let’s pray and wake up to the great deception and go against it!

    • Mohammad


      I kinda agree to the premise of those sociopaths supporting riots.

      Does it strike you like it did to me the resemblance between:
      Rabiaa hand gesture in Egypt to the Do Not Shoot hand gesture in US, and both are linked to riots and violence, I bet you if you dig (and i hope authorities do) deep enough you find the financier and the master mind of the two is the same.

    Greg, CNN did you a favor not renewing your contract,

    Hi Greg
    I thought that I may have to have a debate about Greece and Syriza, however your analysis was absolutely spot the crony capitalists have made communism look good. The people of Greece have just had enough and I can’t blame them, they have suffered and suffered and the only thing that separates Greece and the UK is we have our own printing press.
    Greg you have completely eclipsed CNN and the MSM they should be begging you to have a show with them. In the words of who I perhaps naively hope will be your next President “news should called main stream entertainment cus that’s all it is” Jesse Ventura.

    • Greg Hunter

      Thank you GN.

    • JC Davis

      WOW GN. I just had a thought I would pay money to see Greg interview Jesse V. That would be worth my money. So much alike and so far apart.

      • GN912457

        That would be a good interview and Greg being such a good host would probably get the best out of Jessie, however we may have to wait a while. On RT a few days ago Jessie said that he would only announce he was running in at least the same year as the election and maybe just three months before.

  13. Brian Lauzon

    My comment is not related much to this article so I apologize in advance for that oversight. However , I want to point out something that never seems to come up in conversations about the coming economic collapse , war and everything else connected to the elite plans we are facing. I will only use one company to explain my comment – Disney. It has been put forth that Disney is run by the elites with connections to media control through six major mega corporations and thus control our perceptions of the truth. CNN is another such example of not reporting the real news in favor of 12 hours of the blizzard of the century that never happened. Getting back to Disney I have to ask what to me is the obvious. If I was in charge of Disney I would think that there is some sort of inside information regarding economic collapses , war , civil unrest and the rest of what you and most others of this nature ( alternative media ) are warning about. If I were the head of Disney with even a bit of inside information or even just visiting some of these media sites I would know something is coming and it isn’t good. So if I was in the know just a tiny bit wouldn’t Disney be reluctant to spend billions on things like new movies. Star Wars is more to the point because it will cost a lot of money to make them but as the head of Disney I would put an immediate stop to investments like this because there won’t be a market for their product in the near future. As a canary in the mine the tip off that the elites like Disney , Time Warner and others would halt all wasteful investments until they knew things were safer to do so. I don’t see any slow down in Marvel super hero movies , Star Wars and even in adding to their theme parks. That would suggest the immediate future is not as bleak as it seems. HOWEVER , what brought me to this idea in the first place was the recent announcement about the planned Avatar sequels being delayed. That says to me that maybe it is starting to become more of a real threat to us and the others will follow suit soon. Bottom line is if the elites in charge of everything filled with money suddenly stop their investments then the canary is dying and it’s time to hide.

  14. Terry Bartak

    Greg, I was glad to find your site. Intelligent interviews with expert guests. Straight to the point, facts “as they are” stories, real reporting. I thought that was dead. I’ve been reading the Blaze for a while but it’s like watching bad TV or those “newspapers” in the supermarket checkout line. “Watch what happens when……………” instead of a headline. Not all bad but not real news. I don’t have time to chase rabbits down their holes looking for real news. Is the entire world headed for big trouble? Absolutely! How and why, specifically, is what I want to know. There is no need for news to be “balanced”. The truth need not be balanced with a lie. You’re doing a good job. Thank you.

    • Greg Hunter

      Thank you Terry.

    • Donna

      I happen to agree with Brian’s comment on Disney. I live in So Cal and I go to Disneyland frequently as I have a So Cal pass and the growth that is happening around Anaheim and at Disney itself is astonishing, considering that the financial sky is gonna fall. When I go there, I think to myself ” if the financial collapse is gonna happen and the elites who run the world know what is about to come, why would they continue to invest in this market”?
      there are new hotels going up at an unbelievable rate, disney keeps updating both Disneyland and Cal Adventure park.

      Maybe somewhere the answer is they know what is coming and may as well invest/exchange the cheap current system of federal reserve notes for whatever future currency system is in the future? Disney will always exist because the sleepy masses want their escape from reality and the elites are more than happy to comply giving us Baseball, Football, Soccer games and amusement parks to keep our eyes off the obvious reality. Once you step out of the matrix, you can see it clear as day, but most don’t to and believe what they are shown in a television screen must be real!

      Just my 2 cents regarding Disney, the happiest, expensive, not real place on earth!

  15. Galaxy 500

    Greg, WTI and BRENT are diverting again. There’s a 10% difference at 6:45ET. So what does this tell you?
    CNN as a news source? Now that is funny. They are the New Pravda.
    0bama is giving $1Billion to Central America to stop illegal immigration. Hahaha, yeah, that’s going to work. If 0bama and his minions keep bringing the illegals here, we will be Mexican. We should force all them out by putting a bounty on illegals. $1,000 per head. In a month, we wouldn’t have an illegal problem. No more children killed by illegals. Nancy, didn’t you and Dingy Harry, say that guns should be banned if we could save one child? Hundreds of citizens are murdered each month by illegals. So what do you say Nancy? Boot them out to save our citizens? I didn’t think so you hypocritical biotch.
    I said a few years ago that Israel is going to have to nuke the evil moslems in Iran. Fighter pilots and aircraft are a valuable asset. Israel doesn’t have Ashby conventional weapons that can breech the Iranian nuclear weapons bunkers…And neither do we. To take them out its going to take at least a1KT weapon and to be safe, you would use a 5KT.
    I see no other course of action to get the job done and what a great cover an Iranian attack would be. And if Israel is attacked from the West Bank, Israel should a fix bayonets on their rifles and push all the Arab terrorist (there is NO race called Palestinian , its a political construct, just like the mythical moderate moslem) out of the West Bank.
    Great wrap up and keep the faith

    “Naturally the common people don’t want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” -Hermann Goering.

    “Have they lost their minds?” Well, yes………… ” How can there be a so-called “economic recovery” when homeownership is hitting fresh lows? ” My wife and I are now paying $925/month with a $12,000 deductible. We’re 59…….. Pretty sure that use to be a house payment (in the good ‘ol days). There’s 50% of the economic problem.

    Thank You Greg for more great content. Just keep ringing the bell as you are doing a most important job and may more appreciation come your way.
    I rarely inject religion or politics into a discussion as I follow the “Don’t Discuss Religion or Politics” rule. Usually I stand back and watch others go for each others throat and marvel.
    If I was going to share someone else ringing the bell in a different sphere it would be Rabbi Jonathan Cahn. I have to chuckle to myself because I was raised old school Catholic but this guy is …….Very Interesting! It is economic as well.

    Hi Greg,

    Thank you so much for the information provided on your website. Without sites like yours, it becomes real easy to walk around with eyes wide shut. I think it is too late to turn the tide and get the country as a whole to wake up from their misinformed stupor, but know that you are doing a great job to help inform the masses.


  22. Art Barnes

    Greg, that’s a wrap! Loss of Greece is coming, the only way to keep those people in NATO will be debt forgiveness. That leads to me to the price of oil, it may well have to be kept low to keep Russia from helping the new Greek government and making inroads to its military bases, both on land & a deep water sea base. Thank this is far-fetched? The people of Greece have had enough of the international bankers, they want help from anywhere they can get it. Western minded peoples have gotten used to better & like here the bankers and crony politicians of Greece have eaten the chicken and left the feathers to their people for nourishment; can you see them dining on the fat chickens in our own kitchen? Greeks are a strong, viral, & intelligent people, they finally have had enough of austerity; maybe the American people should take a lesson, 18 trillion & counting, for what, roads to nowhere, bridges over dry rivers, $200 toilet seats, and on & on & on. Main Street is in trouble & instead of feeding the Bankers the Government should have helped our neighbors & people living on main street. Your discussion & statistic of housing ownership is only going to get worst not better, as it takes well paying jobs to own a house & the maintenance such requires, its can’t be done flipping burgers a the local fat burger. Gas price helps the middle & lower classes a little but not enough to buy the American dream, so expect home ownership to be a rare event in the future for the have not(s). As more & more Americans join the lower social economic class we will see declining nationalism & a rising discontent, all because our (crony) capitalism was outsourced to the bankers.

    Keystones pipeline
    IMHO it,s a money pit , with the price of oil trending down for the forseable future Canadian tar sands are wildly uneconomic , by the time it is built ( if it,s built ) the producers in Canada will be bankrupt , this is infrastructure the country can’t afford , the U.S. economy can’t stand $ 100 oil , it’s been spiraling down since the last oil shock causing volatility in every market , tar sands / fracking can’t build a business plan on volatility .

    Hello Greg,

    As usual, I agree with most of what you say or write, except, when you show unbalanced and unfair favor for the terrorist state of Israel. Since it seems that the only time that you deviate from economic issues is to defend Zio-terrorism, I challenge you, hell no, I double-dog-dare you to have an opposing voice on your show as a guest. I recommend David Duke of Louisana; yes, THAT David Duke, and please don’t discredit and embarrass yourself by only attacking the messenger. If his facts are wrong or even untrue it should be easy for an accomplished journalist and interviewer as you are to expose him as a fraud. It’s your show and it’s a good and worthwhile show, and you may, of course, do as you wish; but since you continue to open a discussion concerning Israel, don’t you agree that you owe it to your credibility and your audience to at least offer an opposing view? I’m pretty confident that most of your audience already know who really runs America, and it would be understandable that, if out of fear of financial or even terrorist retribution, you might choose to ignore and exclude this comment, then so be it. (I apologize for the italics)

    • Greg Hunter

      I am not putting David Duke on this channel. Please go to his channel to hear him bash Israel. I just want to report the facts and that is what I try to do. I’ll let you post your “terrorist state of Israel” comment this time but that’s it as it is biased and unfair. Please go and comment somewhere else like David Dukes site. I am sure he will appreciate your support.

    • Mohammad


      I was born and raised in M.E.
      We there sometimes feel jealous when we see PM of israel doing whatever it takes to protect his country, or when Israel wages wars that are devastating because one or two soldiers were killed whilst at the same time we see our leaders in ME killing scores of their citizens sometimes in hundreds of thousands just because they ask them to leave.
      Irony it is but nonetheless it is worth mentioning here.

    Another great wrap-up. Thanks for keeping us updated with the *real* news. I’ve given up on the main stream media. You’re one of the very, very few who hasn’t been corrupted and co-opted by the NWO. I don’t know what I’d do without you. Please keep up the great work!

  30. Anne Elliott

    Great wrap up Greg! The plan to merge the US, Canada, and Mexico is just another link in the chain being readied for us within the NWO. Creating a North American Union may be the only way that TPTB can get rid of our gun rights and American ideologies about individual freedoms. Such a union may be created out of a big war – allies in a war are looked on so much more favorably than just a nearby nation, and an “us” (North America) vs. “them” (Russia and China) mentality can go a long way with the youth of this country who may have to fight this war overseas.

    • Greg Hunter

      Thank you Anne for the comment and support.

  31. Jerry

    As far as the North American Union article in CNN, do you remember this post?
    Jerry 07/17/2014 •
    Important Update-
    I heard from my source this morning a very sobering message that I’m still trying to wrap my mind around. He has recently made contact with a very high level military source, that basically laid out the entire playbook for the NWO. The reason this man contacted my source, was to make arrangements for him and his family to relocate outside the United States. Yes its going to get that bad.

    First let me say John Williams theory of “bottom bouncing” is very accurate. According to this contact , we’re going to see the dollar bottom bounce from the coming conflict between NATO and Russia, causing the metal prices to spike in August, to a final collapse at the end of 2015. That’s were things get interesting. According to this contact we will be under martial law from that point forward to the establishment of the new NAU ( North American Union) consisting of Mexico, U.S., Canada. The United States will cease to exist as a nation as of ……..get this……..2017. Get the 7 ?

    According to this man, the Pentagon wanted him to sign a contract under a FISA agreement to fire on American citizens on American soil. When he refused to do it, they released him from his command, and began to harass him and his family to the point that he contacted my source to be extracted from the United States. The scary part is this man was a Four Star general with authorization over the drone program. So what does that tell you about their intentions.

    According to him thousands of drones backed by a mercenary force numbering in the tens of thousands from Black Water, DHS and other covert organizations will be used to take down the armed citizenry of America. All of this in order to establish the NAU for the sole purpose of allowing the Chinese to set up their economic trade platforms within the borders of the United States and the NAU.

    Are you getting it yet?
    a. Why the Chinese have never collected on their 1.7 Trillion dollar loan?
    b. Why the Chinese are busy setting up trade platforms all over the world?
    c. Why our government is unconcerned about our debt?
    d. Why thousands, soon to be millions are streaming across our southern borders?
    e. Why there’s been no collapse of the dollar?

    Folks, I have to tell you, it makes me sick at my stomach to type this, but here it is. The NWO has much bigger plans for us than simply setting up a new currency system. They want the establishment of the NAU, to go along with the EU, at all cost. That’s their overall objective. There’s much more but I can’t write it. I really, really, hope this isn’t true. May the lord be with you.

    Still think I’m wearing a tin hat?

    • Paul from Indiana

      Jerry, I know you report truly what you hear, but what you hear may not be true. But let’s say it is. Every cloud has a silver lining. I will be going “home” very soon. And at this point, it is with very little regret. I’m in. When Col. Travis drew his line in the sand in 1836, everybody knew what the deal was. Best always. PM

      “Still think I’m wearing a tin hat?”

    To understand the pipeline in question we have to put it in perspective and that is NAFTA and the NAFTA superhighway.

    Maps of both for sure, undoubtedly overlap and since some noise here and there derailed the superhighway project for a while it is still in the works silently through some kind of convenient way of traveling and that is: {{{{{Pay toll roads…!!!}}}}
    Those pay toll roads are the nuclei to the superhighway (no exit, no entrance without the highway check points, then you can add to it the EZPASS…..!!!!) , one day the connection between those pay toll roads will reveal the frightening picture.

    Keystone pipe line ALREADY EXISTS, and what does not is the expansion of it to Canada and the gulf, it will pass along that super highway …When the project is done, country is cut from the heart to two major parts and later on to more bits and pieces with counties that are isolated and eventually will turn into ghost towns, so major residential areas will be limited and voila (one more time ) agenda 21.

    Now the question is: why Obama is against that pipeline that is supposed to advance the agenda?

    Actually his veto to it (if it materializes ) will strike all the arguments that he is globalist.
    May be it will make the opposite argument that he is patriot a valid one.

    One major reason why Obama is against it is what he said himself:
    “Keystone XL allows “Canada to pump their oil, send it through our land, down to the Gulf, where it will be sold everywhere else.”
    He said it on Friday, November 14th, 2014 in a press conference in Burma.

    Am not Obama fan, but he HAS A POINT here, why the hell we should allow canada to use our land to export its oil we benefit nothing but disasters from it.
    So far I have not heard any strong argument in favor of the PIPELINE or NAFTA or Agenda 21 except from THE BUSH CONS and SLIK WILLI.

    At least we have here a president who is against what in reality is AGENDA 21


    • mohammad


      If someone will argue that TPP Obama for is NAFTA on steroid i can argue back that it is to isolate China form its Asia market to eliminate its global influence. Details can ensue upon request.


    • OutLookingIn

      Canada’s heavy oil from the tar sands is difficult to refine. However, the Gulf Coast refineries can handle it, then use or export the refined products, with attendant mark up of price. This has made the Canadian people in the west angry, in that they think a refinery should be built to handle the heavy oil and pocket all the proceeds from the tar sands. Rather than export the crude for a fire sale price to the US and have most of the profits end up south of the border.

      • Gary Canuck

        I supply the Oil Patch in Alberta with Industrial product from Houston, due to the C Dollar we have had to put through a 18% price increase, we are now unprofitable in Canada.
        Our export markets Brazil, South America are in the shithouse, the exchange rate today at the bank is 1.31 . This is KILLING business in the oil patch along with the price of oil.
        Unfortunately we have a puppet leader Harper in Canada, who
        will not act independently after Obama screwed him.
        If Putin was running Canada we would have that pipeline under construction to export Refined Product to Asia.

        Either way all these high paying jobs in North America are going to diminish, its like 4-1 vs service jobs, what kind of leaders would collaborate with the Saudis to take out their own industry, obviously those interested in putting the boots to Russia, American and Canadian jobs are expendable.

        The next time these dumb ass Canadian & American politicians talk about sanctions, we the people will pay for it as they know perfectly well some one has to pay.
        Joke: What do you get when you cross a Republican with a Conservative from Canada. “You get nothing” there are some things even a dog will not do, at least a dog has a conscious.

        Ps I really like the new Greek PM, although if I were him I would stay out of hot tubs, and get a food taster.

      • Rick Perkins

        Nice song about a cabin paradise in Tennessee.

        I’m not clear, however, as to what the phrase “Fear not” is supposed to mean. To me it is ambiguous at best. Why?

        The Bible often uses the word “fear” as in “to revere” or “to hold in awe” as in Ecclesiastes 12:13 where that teacher, having searched for the meaning of life, tells us:
        “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man”
        or in Revelation 14:7:
        “Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”

        In other Biblical text the word “fear” is used as in “being frightened” or “apprehensive” as when David writes in Psalm 56:4:
        “In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.”

        I suppose the phrase “Fear not” , as often used in the comments here, is used to express a recognition that although man can be extremely brutal and cruel, he can only destroy the mortal body while God deals with the eternal soul. If so, then “Fear not” is probably short hand for “Fear not men but only God”?

    Hi Greg, thank you for your insights.
    In 2012, I heard about a speculation that the entity, which randomly disables nuclear missiles as from 1948, began with a game of chess, after so long now starting to execute a game plan in disabling nuclear missiles, supposedly that one started in the summer of 2012 in Israel, the disabling entity being against western leadership. As from that time I saw some geopolitical news, which remembered me about the speculation, as it made me not ruling it out. Then, the beginning of 2014, in my guessing game, I wrote it off as I was awaiting a Cold War in that speculation, categorizing it as a farfetched wild speculation. When the Cold War came shortly after that, the speculation reentered my mind. When the speculation might be true, Vladimir Putin will slowly advance in the Cold War, building a climax leading to a Cuba Crisis like thing eventually. In that possible scenario the West is shooting herself in the foot with escalating the thing. As far the speculation could be true, Iran supposedly being in the know, I can imagine they abandoned their desires for nuclear arms, as in that scenario Israel politics will be dealt with anyway. President Ahmadinejad at first was advocating a wipe out of Israel, as he stated ‘I wonder whose side Jesus Christ (JC) will choose when he returns’. My spiritual sources stating, Ahmadinejad in the know JC is walking the earth again, the global network around the comeback of JC informing him, as Ahmadinejad moved towards a peace advocating style, the speculative plan moving against the Israeli anyway. Recently Ahmadinejad met Jewish people; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5I8Eexh0Afg
    Former president Ahmadinejad spoke many times with conviction that JC is about to return. My spiritual sources claiming the comeback of JC lives in the western world, in an average Joe position. As far the speculation being true, then Ahmadinejad was the only leader ever who declared that one, as in the west there is none. The networks around the comeback of JC in the first place not in the interest of the people in the world. The comeback of JC not engaging, as the waiting is on the development of enough good forces to oppose the evil ones in the thing. As I sometimes run the simulation in my mind the speculation being true, I wonder how the comeback of JC, in an average Joe position, could ever be a difference in this one world, as magic miracles do not exist to prove his identity. Then I come to the conclusion that the nukes disabling thing, or something, could back him up, as then there might be something brewing. Retired air force captain Robert Salas on the tampering with nukes; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkZWHpP17Rc
    In 2010 a national press release on the topic; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLMYO4jvobc
    As far the speculation might be true, it will tie Obama’s hands, boxing him in at crucial moments. Putin saw the financial warfare coming, as he probably integrated it in his strategy, aiming a backfire to the west. I am curious what Iran’s position is in that scenario, as it could be holding back in the Israel thing as a new Cold War is developing. I am very curious what game Putin has in mind. It’s a farfetched speculative story. May the view of the founding fathers of America go viral one day, and the Source of Love bless us all. Expect the unexpected.

    Would I like to see a debate with Al Gore and Lord Monckton ! Throw in Obama just for laughs.

    I thought a question relating to climate change and the growth in green technology was missing. The reason for Obama’s support for it and opposition to carbon was predicated in a false climate model–at least that is my assumption.

    My regret is Obama, Gore, and other have vested interests for which the truth ( or the climate change supporters truth) shall not be revealed.

    “FBI workers were allowed tell their families about Plan C in vague terms only but were also encouraged to make preparations.

    “The stressing to all employees that it is the employee’s moral responsibility to plan for survival and for the care of his family, to see that his family is aware of such planning, and to go into such planning, in detail, with his family,” one memo reads.

    MuckRock has requested about 150 additional pages regarding Plan C under the Freedom of Information Act. The FBI is consulting with other agencies before releasing the documents. Plans A and B did not exist.”


  48. Collateral Damage

    Big stuff happening in Europe today Folks…

    This story is from From “The Journal”, a German television news program reported in the English language. The Reporter began, “It is the Face-Off that Investors have been fearing, Greece’s new Government said that it will make good on it’s pledge to overhaul Austerity in the country. It could mean no ‘new bailouts’ and maybe even an exit from the Eurozone.

    A very tense meeting in Athens on Friday (30Jan2015). Greece’s new left-wing government opened negotiations in a meeting between the Greek Finance Minister, Yanis Varoufakis, and Jerone Dijsselbloom, Head of the European Union’s Group of Finance Ministers. Greece started things off with a terse rejection of Austerity Measures imposed on Greece over the past 5 YEARS. The new government says that it will no longer allow IMF and EU Auditors into Greece and REFUSES TO EXTEND THE BAILOUT PROGRAM (The current term of the program expires at the end of February).

    GREEK FINANCE MINISTER – “We will seek cooperation with the legal institutions of the Eurozone and International Monetary Fund, but the Tripartiad Committee of IMF, European Commission, and ECB insists on a program who’s logic we consider anti-European. According to the European Parliament, that committee is poorly structured, we do not intend to work with it.”

    The new government is moving quickly to defy specific terms of the EU/IMF bailout program. Planned privatization’s of a gold mine and a gas distributor were canceled on Friday (TODAY) [NOTE: THEY WERE SUCKING THE TRUE WEALTH AND RESOURCES OUT OF GREECE IN EXCHANGE FOR WORTHLESS PAPER. INTERESTING HOW THEY (TPTB) HAVE BEEN, AND WANT TO CONTINUE TO EXCHANGE WORTHLESS PAPER FOR THE REAL WEALTH OF A GOLD MINE AND A NATURAL GAS DISTRIBUTORSHIP] HA!

    EU FINANCE MINISTER – “It is of the upmost importance that Greece remain on a plan of ‘Recovery’. …Ignoring previous arrangements is not the way forward.” [I BET HE FEELS THAT WAY. SURE WOULD WANT A GOLD MINE OR GAS DISTRIBUTOR INSTEAD OF WORTHLESS PAPER MYSELF!]

    Germany is rejecting any ‘Debt Relief’ or any ‘Relaxation’ of Greece’s Bailout terms.

    Now to a German Reporter for analysis…

    “Athens is ‘Bokners’ not talking to the bank who has given them a very big loan. This won’t lead anywhere, they must bear the consequences… They will not get the last installment at the end of Feb. (which is 7 Billion Euros, which Greece really needs), European Central Bank may not give ‘liquidity’ anymore to Greek Banks, this would be a real disaster. ATMs won’t work anymore.”

    Question -‘What about the talk coming from the Greek Finance Minister asking for a write down of Greek debt?’

    Response – ‘Why do they worry about a write down at all because they are not paying down anything, they will not be starting to pay down their debt before 2020 or maybe even 2022, so this is in the future, so far all they are paying is interest and at a very low rate.


    “A poor man is made out of muscle and blood,… a mind that is weak and a back that is strong.”



    SHE CONTINUES… Plus, 80 percent of the Greek debt is held within the European Union, and that means that the countries of Europe (Italy, France, Germany and the rest of them) would have to shell out.

    Greece may be able to ‘play games’ with the European Union, but you cannot play games with the IMF and Washington, and we can be sure that Christine Legaurd (sp?)will not be charmed by the New Greece Finance Minister.

    And let the ‘Games’ continue….

    The Games will proceed as follows:

    1) They will continue the Game by ‘Buying off the Leaders (of countries like Greece)’,
    2) Game continues through ‘Threatening the Leaders’, or
    3) Game ends, when they can no longer do so.

    Best Always to each of you,

      CD, the irony in all of this is that in the 1920’s, it was the Germans repudiating their debt (war reparations to France), rejecting the burdens of “austerity”. Now the Germans are on the other side of the fence, and Greece is balking at the burden, and the Germans are screaming “foul!” All depends on whose ox is being gored, doesn’t it? Best always. PM

    • sk

      Germany, after WW I, was asked to pay ALL debts, though it was not the SOLE cause of WW I. I recommend the book “When Money Dies” by Adam Fergusson for details. The French prime minister Poincare’ demanded every last pfennig, even though Germans were quite literally starving. In 2015 Greece, I’m sure it is very difficult for the people, but their problems are not the result of a war for which they are being held SOLELY responsible. They have lived beyond their means, and now the consequences are upon them. That is not to say that help should not be given to them.

      Dear RJ

      I am also in Canada and it troubles me also that friends and family think I have lost it.

      Regardless, I continue trying to prepare as best as I can.
      I would do more but I can only alienate my wife to a point.

      Slowly she is coming around but by the time she is fully on board it likely will be too late to fully prepare.

      I can tell you this much. She knows that I respect and follow the writings 0f Eric Sprott, Jim Sinclair, Bill Holter , Greg Hunter.

      Each day I try to expossed her to a statement that supports that what I have been telling her for a few years is beginning to occur.

      She loves my effort to food stack.

      Slowly and patiently I press forward in my preparation.

    A great — and sobering — weekly summary, Greg. None of it surprises me. It is clear that the endgame is fully in motion and things are only going to get more tense and potentially explosive from here on in. I look forward to your summary each week, as you put the pieces together so well. Thanks for all you do!

    Hi Greg,
    I admire the way you publish comments you disagree with or you may not appreciate,including mine.It’s amazing how different points of view are coexisting in this comments space.You defend the real free speech and for that THANK YOU.

  57. SamAdamsGhost

    Thank you Greg for all your work. I listen to mainstream ‘news’ radio reports often & occasionally watch t.v. ‘news’ when visiting relatives. (We disconnected the cable t.v. a couple of years ago at our place out of disgust.) The level of propaganda out there is quite disturbing – quite like Pravda during the old USSR days. Coming here to USA Watchdog is now part of our regular routine.
    We also send links to your broadcasts to others, hoping this will help wake up others & free people from the mental prison in which they are held. Unfortunately, most people don’t recognize the cell bars. People can tell that you’re a reasonable and sincere man, who is also an experienced journalist pro. I’ve found that many will listen to your reports who would dismiss others out of hand. I will continue to watch, spread the word to other people, and donate when I can.
    Taking your sign off to heart to ‘Fear Not’, – – Sam

    Greg, I have been a dedicated follower of this site since it’s inception and have watched the viewership grow year by year, along with the amount of high quality commentary.

    You have provided a most valuable service. THE TRUTH! Which sadly, is in short supply to the public from the MSM and our so-called “leader’s”. I would like to take this opportunity to say a big “thank you” to all the other commenters on this site. I get just as much meaningful information from you as I do from Greg himself! So, once again Greg, thank you so much for all that you do. Please take care and go with God.

    Greg, your WNWs are always on the money but your latest (Jan. 30) was especially so.

    In Europe there is a real wild card in all that you covered in your wrap-up, and I think it is the Greeks. Their left-wing dominated government might just tell the EU to shinny up a pole with its U.S. demanded sanctions of Russia, refuse to cooperate in any austerity plan, default if necessary, and in general distant itself from Brussels and possibly be kicked out of the EU. If this happens, Russia could quickly fill the vacuum created by all this and give Greece aid and comfort as necessary.

    If I am right, the Italians, Spanish, and Portuguese, just to mention a few other EU members, will watch these developments with interest and perhaps a willingness to follow the Greek example. Add to this the flawed QE plan of the ECB and the EU might then really start to unravel.

    In regard to the Middle East no one (not even you, as I recall) ever mentions that Israel has plenty of nuclear weapons. (The Brits have done extensive reporting on this.) But the propaganda job, aided and abetted by a pliant U.S. Congress is to orchestrate instead, a reverse situation, namely, an ever increasing fear of Iranian nuclear weapons (they have none, read the various international inspection reports), a fear, if and when it reaches hysterical levels, that will provide cover for Israel’s possible use of its own nuclear weapons in a war with Iran.

    The wild card here may be Muslim countries like Pakistan, which do have nuclear weapons. But this is pure speculation.

    • Greg Hunter

      Watch the EU very carefully. When it blows, the U.S. will be next and the collapse will be spectacular.

    • Mohammad


      Greece is in the Russian camp now, keep in mind the gas pipe line going to Turkey and from there where do you think to distribute to Europe..? GREECE.
      Before that you remember how Russia bought Cyprus?
      They are now offering a life rope to Greece


    • Jeff

      The alignment of Greece with Russia and the impending collapse of the southern members (Spain, Italy, France) are already lining up…… Greece has a backstop now (Russia) and will leave the EU………. What Greece is now doing (and their attitude) made my week. Everything else is just fluff.

      • Mohammad


        If you think about it you may find that the Germans are all for it in private, they want Greece to be in the eastern camp for GAS…!
        Remember the gas pipeline by Russia that is supposed to go to Turkey and from there where other than Greece as an end terminal to distribute to Europe and keeps the German’s machine going since the anglo American access interrupted the Ukraine’s area for gas supply.
        Hence the many many reports popping here and there that Greece is a corridor for Jihadists…hmmmm…another Ukraine’s scenario if Greece goes East? seems some one wants to squeeze the neck of Germans.

    There has been a trend over the last year or so of celebrities selling their mansions, almost every time i click on yahoo i find one of those sold mansions with pics on front page.
    What do they know that we don’t (time wise)
    Most wealthy people in Syria liquidated their properties 1-2 years prior to the civil war there, every one of my family and friends where scratching heads saying why so and so sold his property/business? he is doing very well….?
    After 2 years we KNEW WHY..!

    In regard to Sunday’s big game, this should give anyone chills, see http://m.nextgov.com/defense/2015/01/dhs-reveals-super-bowl-surveillance-techniques-kinda/104016/ Does anyone see anything wrong here??

    I wish I could share what happened this past week to me, but let me say it this way, everyone and again I repeat everyone is being very carefully watched.

    I must make one comment in regard to the Fed, when Charles Plosser states “It may work out just fine, but there’s a risk to that strategy… we’re in some sense distorting what might be the normal market outcomes at some point, we’re going to have to stop doing it. At some point the pressure is going to be too great. The market forces are going to overwhelm us. We’re not going to be able to hold the line anymore. And then you get that rapid snapback in premiums as the market realizes that central banks can’t do this forever. And that’s going to cause volatility and disruption.”

    Then you can bet your whole house, that they knew precisely what they are doing, they have used calculus to determine the optimal bending coefficients correctly and they know just how much stress to induce into the system to cause that particular “dynamic bounce” recoil and with what damage. Those market forces are being utilized by very clever people in the Fed to drive the whole world a certain direction, and it is succeeding quite brilliantly ( I am sorry to say)

    comment off…

    Greg, I truly appreciate what you are doing, and I will continue to pray the Heavenly Father to support you and give you His strength to carry on.


    – Randall

    Is it possible that the reserve the swiss have after removing the cap is going in oil?


    if that in the article materializes imagine how much the feds made / sterilized through the swiss move when they buy oil at 40 and sell at 200…..!!!!!


    • Jeff

      I believe up till now I’m the only one harping that oils going higher. Much higher. Last week commenters here were talking (and posting articles) about $30 oil………. $200 ? Quite a turnaround………

      • Jeff

        In fact, the Saudi prince last week said oil would never see $100 again…….. He’s delusional and a liar.

        • Mohammad

          Neither, he will do his best to keep his word to no avail, he under evaluates the cabal that killed his grandfather King Faisal for just that.


      • Mohammad

        I said Jeff on the record when someone mentioned that the reserve Swiss are carrying is going into gold I said it very well could go into oil.

    We are already in the beginnings of WW3, being the financial war which is taking place right now. When the shooting starts, it’s going to get bad. All of this is leading to the 4th seal being opened up. Have faith in Jesus Christ and practice loving one another as the days get darker and darker:

    7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

    8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. (Revelation 6:7, 8)

    Hi Greg. Since the beginning of 2008, I am on a journey on the internet for information, not only about the financial system. I always google and YouTube around, as I saw you there regularly. As I got attracted by your sympathetic personality, I visited your site last December, I rarely read comments, but joined that now. I never saw Gregory Mannarino, I watched some old interviews with him on your site. ‘Big Brother is watching us all in high tech time’, and especially sites like yours Greg. Expect the unexpected, at times it can be good forces in interfering with the internet, as they want to encourage, or something. As from the summer of 2003, I became in the middle of a tsunami of paranormal contacts. Through the years, a growing pool of casual contacts out of nowhere, at some periods being exponentially, as at times it seemed there was nothing else out there temporarily, sometimes even seemingly encrypted/translated in MSM, the pool of contacts referring to that. Along that happening, I began to notice that something began showing itself to me in an very obvious way, of being observing me. Often enough after debating some topics in my home, going out for a drink, a new casual contact shows up, starting a conversation, and then beginning around the topic I debated in the privacy of my home, as I began to notice my privacy got lost in the woods at some periods. When I posted a too long commentary recently, seeing it disappear, I automatically assumed they were just profiling themselves again, not remembering your request to make it not that long, as I posted it again, and you accommodating it anyway. At some times, when I want to make a phone call with my mobile, they just start to dial a lot of numbers, meddling in my emails, as the list of experiences is endless. I experienced things which make your head spin, a story beyond any imagination, as I have countless ones. Maybe I grew into a tinfoil hat guy (I know I am not), but I recognise opposing forces in the observing mechanisms. I know the paranormal sources want me to write the whole story, as that pool of contacts out of nowhere began to encourage that one as well, as the act the presence of observing mechanisms began to grow, stories beyond your imagination. As I didn’t feel attracted with all the controversial things to go out in the open, the paranormal sources pull some twilight zone stunts from time to time to keep me intrigued, and occupied with it. Opposing forces. In 2012/2013, I had a relationship with a in Holland born Kurdish girl. She came back to Holland 11 years ago, as she joined the PKK from her 17th till her 28th, being a guerrilla in the mountains for 11 years, able to return with the help of several secret services. As her father is an Imam, she doesn’t practice Islam, as only believing in Allah, praying for peace in the world, as she is a lovely girl, with a heart of gold, driven by peace and justice, tired of war. All her stories made me see her past, at times as if I was there, what she experienced all, as my respect for her grew with it. Two times facing a PKK bullet for being a too critical mind to PKK procedures, jailed in Syria, and so on, and so on. Shot in the lower leg by friendly Iranian fire, as they repaired that one beautifully. Her father accepting a non-Muslim at the time, her having a special position in the family, as she is struggling with posttraumatic war stress. Her brother, not practising Islam either, began to oppose our relationship after some time, as she suspected his friends arguing against our relationship, the honour thing, as most Dutch Muslim women are not allowed relationships with non-Muslims. She introduced me in the Muslim/Islam culture, as she agreed with my perception of it. She was worried, as he owns a pistol. At that period, when I visited her, as she lives 30 miles of my hometown, I saw a lot of police circulating in that period she was worried about her brother. One time I parked my car to visit her, a police officer halted the car, and stated ‘we don’t want to see you get hurt’, as they moved on. I was flubbercasted, as I know Dutch government is not my friend, not at all, quite some unbelievable stories as well at that front. Some 20 years ago, I had quite some lawsuits, doing them myself, against the Dutch government, as I experienced the intense corruption literally all over the place, knowing too much by that. One day, a police officer told me that governments sometime get rid of people, when they see them as a potential political threat, as I talk openly in that big pool of casual contacts about the massive corruption of government, judges, and so on, and so on, as people know it got MSM coverage for some years, as I experienced corrupt government/MSM, demonising tactics, and so on, and so on. I went on TV and all, opposing and so on, but at some moment I just let it be, getting tired of communicating to the press all the time. I just replied to the police officer that I am not afraid to die, as I have had a wonderful adventurous life so far, feeling to have seen and done it all, but that one stated as well something like ‘we don’t like to see you getting hurt’. I like to live long on this world, but have peace with the idea of closing my eyes on a short notice, at sometimes even short moments of desiring to join the paranormal sources again, the spirit world, at sometimes a sort of home-sickness, but then I realize I have an eternity ahead of doing that. In my hometown there are quite some Muslims, it amazes me what I can argue against Islam and Muslim culture, opposing all religions by the way, as normally it would get you hurt, but again I am not afraid to die at all, as I never felt fear in my live. Recently a Kurdish guy told me that some Kurdish circles wanted to eliminate me, as my dad warned me for danger when I started the relationship. I silenced him with the statement that something is seemingly watching out over me, and if not I have no problems with leaving this world, not looking for it at all, but not afraid to lose the physical life.
    Now looking back, I realize I gradually grew in the whole thing, which makes me long for my life before the whole thing started, at the same time not wanting to miss out on the thing that grew all these years, a contradictious state of mind from time to time. I stopped my business at 36 years, taking a free time for some years, but the whole developing story made me a retiree, consuming my time, having just sufficient resources for that, as I always lived below my means, aiming a surplus. At times feeling great with the whole thing, at other times feeling I sacrificed my normal life to the thing. At times watching Madonna ‘I have a tale to tell, a man can tell a thousand lies, I learned my lesson well’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oR2Tda51Gog
    ‘Live to tell a tale’ the song is titled, may the good forces in the world prevail, as we walk the edge, ‘sleep walking into tyranny’, as lord Monckton put it beautifully. I never knew that song of Madonna, as someone mentioned it to me last year Madonna performed that one in 2006 again, on a crucifix, wearing a crown of thorns. My paranormal sources claiming it’s somehow connected to the networks knowing the comeback of JC walks the earth again, injecting it slightly all over the place, as he has the biggest tale ever to tell I am sure. As I watched some of your interviews with Gregory Mannarino, I think he is a very clever, good hearted man, looking forward to the interview. When the post became too long again Greg, just skip it, I love to write anyway. May the view of the founding fathers of America go viral one day, and the Source of Love bless us all. Expect the unexpected.

    This is the saddest thing I have ever seen in my life but you must see it to have any idea what is going on in Ukraine. You will never see anything like this in the US news about what Kiev does to it’s own soldiers or is doing to the people of Donetsk. The bodies are all Kiev soldiers in this new offensive where they are completely getting their asses kicked. Thank you US, NATO, and EU where Russia is going to have to get into this War before June of this year to protect Crimea.

    You can put this up for publication if you want to, but what I’m looking for here is for somebody to do some research and find out what has happened to SUN GAS. I have been unable to find anything passed Feb 2014. If you don’t know, Sun Gas is for real. A method was developed by MIT and UNC scientists to use sunlight, water and CO2 to make a hydrogen gas that can be stored for use and piped etc. This gas burns better that methane and is cleaner. The DOE funded the projects, but I can’t find any info concerning this. What I think has happened is that big oil has stopped this whole business here in America, but the genie is out of the bag. They know how do do this. Just think what this would do for China and its atmosphere. You have a lot of readers – maybe somebody knows something. Betts

    One more thing, King World News is reporting[1] that Saudi Arabia made out on the drop in crude oil prices. Then I read a sentence “If the Fed truly wants to generate inflation and a stronger U.S. economy, their involvement in the oil situation would be helpful.”

    Hello?? Any moral intelligent people left on planet earth? The Fed is NOT your friend!!!!

    I strongly urge every living person on the planet to get a copy of Dr. Stan Monteith’s book “The Brotherhood of Darkness” where he explicitly lays out the button pushers and why they are manipulating whole nations.

    Sorry to be so extreme here, but honestly as a very wise man said “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free”, it is incumbent upon moral people to discern what is truly happening today.

  75. Jack Johnson

    Greg: Thanks for your dire warnings! You are a very courageous man. Hopefully they are overstated, but I fear that they are accurate. Rather that preach, which I fear does very little, I will simply make a recommendation, and preach just a little at the end. There is a wonderful book out that describes our predicament. It is titled, “Are These the Last Days?” by Charles P. Schmitt. In it, the worlds headlines of today are blatently visible in Christian Scripture as shown and commented upon by the author. This book is an easy and quick read.

    There may only be one way out of this mess; through prayer and a change in our personal lives and attitudes. We serve a loving and powerful God. But we have abandoned Him in favor of our own hedonistic pursuits. Many nations have done likewise in the past; to their destruction. If we don’t come around quickly I am afraid we will feel the sting in a terrible and destructive way. Jesus, of course, is the answer. But most people living today don’t understand the question! With just a little work… say for example, an honest prayer, the question and the answer are revealed.
