Massive Global Defaults Coming-Greg Hunter, Michael Pento Video

Money manager Michael Pento says President Trump sent a profound financial message to Wall Street and Main Street when he said $74 billion in Puerto Rican debt needed to be “wiped out.” Pento, who is also an economist, explains, “What I find very striking is that Trump said, very honestly, we’re going to get rid of that.  We’re going to abrogate it.  We’re going to cancel that debt.  So, he’s telling private creditors, Goldman Sachs, pension funds and individual bond holders, you’re going to get close to, if not exactly, zero cents on the dollar.  That’s an explicit default on debt. . . . Ladies and gentleman, please listen to me, the governments of the world, which include the United States, Puerto Rico, Greece, China, Japan and Eurozone, they are going to default on their debt either explicitly or implicitly through inflation.  That is what’s happening now, and that condition will only exacerbate as we go through time.”

Is Puerto Rico a test for debt default? Pento says, “Absolutely correct.  It’s what’s going to happen.  There has also been a test case in Cyprus and in Greece.  They are telling creditors you are going to get ‘X’ cents on the dollar.  These are small isolated cases, and please don’t believe that the United States can ever fund its $20.3 trillion worth of debt that’s on the balance sheet.  We have over a hundred trillion dollars in unfunded liabilities, and quadrillions of debt in derivatives.  So, we are going to have massive defaults.”

Pento says even though the stock market has made huge gains in 2017, don’t expect this to continue. Pento contends, “Year-over-year growth for the third quarter (Q3) is just 2.9%. . . .  So, you have no more earnings growth.  It’s very miniscule.  GDP (Gross Domestic Product) according to the New York Fed for Q3, it’s 1.8%.  If you look at the Atlanta Fed, it’s just a little bit above 2%.  So, you are still stuck in that 2% range.  There’s no real growth in GDP and no real growth in earnings.  The only thing you have left (holding up the markets) is central banks, and that game is ending.  You have central banks selling when there is a high risk of nuclear war, WWIII, stocks are trading at all-time record highs and 138% total market cap to GDP when the average is 50%.  This is crazy.  There is no way you can justify the level of stock prices without massive and unrelenting money printing, which is coming to an end.”

On gold, Pento says, “You’ve got to have 10% physical gold in your liquid net worth. It has to be physical gold that you possess directly.  I cannot stress that enough. . . . I like all precious metals.  They are going to be in a massive and unprecedented bull market sometime in 2018.”

    Report indicate MGM stock owner sold off 80% of his insider stock position
    30 days before LV massacre thereby saving his position in cash.
    George Soros said to have made $73 Million by SHORTING MGM 60 days before.

    So who is shorting NOW before the Nov 4, 2017 ANTIFA “TET Offensive”
    that would give reason to crash the market???

      Dear John,

      Its pretty funny when you think about it, God created the World for all Human Beings, Animals, Plants, etc.

      But yet, you can only work and go where you’re told and the rest you need a passport.

      Of course a passport makes no difference to some countries at certain times.

      I had a funny conversation with a women here a few years ago, she went to a tourist spot and where foreigners live to find a husband and found one and he had to go back to work and so she came around, so I asked her that tourist spot I heard, is suppose to be Beautiful,

      and she said.

      Oh Yes, Its Beautiful.

      Except for all the Foreigners.

      That’s what happens when the World, God created is not shared Equally, the humans, animals, plants and trees not protected Equally, but you can never have a shared world without God or the Creator in at least the Spiritual sense.

      Its Why Communism or Atheism Will Never Work.

      Its the same worldwide really, those few with it all and those with nothing at all, those with nothing at all have nothing left to lose and are Free to find God or the Infinite within their own Heart.

      Those few with it all Worldwide are going to find, Freedom before the End and just may find God and realize all the Money in this World can not replace the Infinite within their own Heart.

      Matthew 6:24

      No one can serve two masters:

      Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.

      You cannot serve both God and money.
