Just an Awesome View From Space

by John Galt February 17, 2018 22:30 ET I just decided to crank up some great tunes and this picture came up from Tesla’s Starman cam: Keep in mind the elongated angle of approach and the fact that the car is hauling you know what away from Earth, and that is awesome. The red circle is what I estimate to be Cyclone Gita over the South Pacific between Vanuatu and New Caledonia heading south towards New Zealand. Just an awesome pic. And now for tonight’s tunes, yeah, you know I’m not…

We had finally through many trials reached our destination that very warm February night at 0230 local.

The Real Barrack and Michelle Obama Portrait Just Discovered

by John Galt February 12, 2018 20:00 ET After the release of the individual portraits of Barrack and Michelle Obama today, along with all the hoopla, suddenly it has been discovered that their was a joint portrait with both of them together, somewhat more vivid in its display than the individual artist’s attempt. I wonder why this portrait of the two of them together didn’t get more coverage?

All You Need to Know About this Current Market Correction: It ain’t Over

by John Galt February 8, 2018 20:00 ET The story from The Financial Times tonight sums it up: Investors resume their bets against market volatility Yeah, there is still a whole lot of morons still out there. I mean with such sterling plays like XIV in the last 90 days, what could go wrong? The article from FT sums it up: Some investors are creeping back to the “short vol” trade that wiped out several financial instruments earlier this week, betting that stock market volatility will fall once again. More than…


If you Don’t Think This is Cool to Watch, You’re a Dick (Video)

by John Galt February 7, 2018, 20:45 ET I’ve decided to use an ELO stream from YouTube in another window to listen to while watching Starman float off to Mars. For those of us who grew up on the original Star Trek, it is really cool to finally see us make the next preparation for the world’s next step in space exploration. Thank you for letting an old guy vent.


The Fed Lied but Gold Ain’t Died

by John Galt February 1, 2018 05:00 ET From today’s FOMC (Federal Reserve Open Market Committee) statement: Information received since the Federal Open Market Committee met in December indicates that the labor market has continued to strengthen and that economic activity has been rising at a solid rate.

Another Dud from the Star Wars Missile Defense System

by John Galt January 31, 2018 19:25 ET Ummmm, yeah. The blaring headline from The Drudge Report tonight says it all: So what happened? From DefenseNews: Another US Navy ballistic missile intercept reportedly fails in Hawaii (excerpt) A test shoot of the SM-3 Block IIA fired from an Aegis Ashore test site in Hawaii failed Wednesday, CNN has reported.

2018 State of the Union Drinking Game Rules 1.75L Stoli Edition

by John Galt January 30, 2018 18:00 ET Comrades, break out the big bottles! In honor of the fake Russian dossier, I thought I would get a real headache as America celebrates President Trump’s first State of the Union Speech and Democrats with their commie pals all commit hari-kari (no, that’s not suicide sex with an aspiring Japanese teenage Hollywood actress you stupid libs) using a rusty Ginsu knife. So let us all take a pause, gather our livers and sanity, and prepare to laugh at the liberals freaking out tonight…



The US Dollar is Crashing and Burning this Morning

by John Galt January 24, 2018 05:50 ET It would appear that not only have the Euro investors decided that the Dollar is no longer the place to be, but so has Asian investors as the Yen blew through the critical 110 level and even the commodity currencies like the Aussie and Kiwi have a bid. But why? If this is a shift in global confidence due to the malfucntioning US political system, then there might be some validity to this mornings drop. Even the common US Dollar Index is starting…


Don’t Kill the Messenger: Bitcoin Could Drop to $1800 or Lower

by John Galt January 23, 2018 21:00 ET As America becomes more and more fascinated with the internet porn version of “paper gold” (you know, the stuff allegedly stored in a triple secure vault in Perth, Australia), Bitcoin is starting to come under more and more scrutiny. Why one may ask? Perhaps these headlines will help: Alt-right utilizes bitcoin after crackdown on hate speech People are mortgaging their houses to buy Bitcoin Way Too Many People Are Using Credit Cards to Buy Bitcoin Report Reveals 18% of Investors Buy Bitcoin With…


Somehow, I Told You So, Doesn’t Quite Say It

by John Galt January 22, 2018 21:45 ET Ummmm, yeah..

The Late But Ever Bizarre John Galt Predictions for 2018

by John Galt January 22, 2018 21:10 ET Yup, it’s the year of the Russians as the Russians are Coming, the Russians are Coming, if you believe the stupidity of the MSM, Democrats, and our military-industrial complex. Unfortunately for them a weakened Russian economy will keep Putin in check in 2018 and despite popular belief that he hid a microphone in Hillary’s cootchie, there are even some things a KGB agent will not do. However, that being the case, a weakened Russia, a dysfunctional European Union, and America being America it…

The Truth About Silver in 1980 and Cryptocurrencies in 2018

by John Galt January 17, 2018 22:40 ET Oh ye who sow ignorance of history, what thou shall reap is the agony of the past, in a present form of pain. – John Galt, January 17, 2018 Today on Bubblevision Channel One, aka, CNBC, a nasty debate about the cryptocurrencies erupted on the television screen:   Here are the key levels to watch for cryptocurrencies from CNBC.

01.17.18 – CRYPTOCARNAGE Resumes After Overnight Rally Geek Squad Wrecked

by John Galt January 17, 2018 05:35 ET The carnage resumed after a rally above $11,000 last night with heavy selling apparently from Europeans and Middle East investors early this morning: Normally I would not recommend tuning into specific radio shows, especially hucksters like Glenn Beck, but his show might be worth a listen if they discuss Bitcoin(BTC) and various cryptocurrencies as he and his sidekick have taken a position in BTC and had several guests on the show touting the cryptocurrency revolution. What makes it interesting is this chart of…




CRYPTOCARNAGE – Bitcoin crashes below 10,000, Ripple down 50%!!!!!

by John Galt January 16, 2017 17:45 ET Uh, um, yup. At least the new kid on the block with the super-duper ultra blockchain is still rocking it, right? What a nightmare. This is what happens when fiat money chases imaginary crypto fiat money and a crash occurs. The exits are not big enough, there is not enough liquidity, and panic ensues. If it doesn’t, well, all I can say is the exit was obvious at $17,000 and now you’ll be lucky to catch a bid, if there is such a…


How to Make a Liberal Head’s Explode with One Donald Trump Tweet

by John Galt December 28, 2017 19:25 ET Just freaking awesome: In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 29, 2017 Go Donald Go! LOLOLOL! (here is a screen shot for the Twitter impaired)


Oh the Humanity! Crypto Carnage as Bitcoin is down Almost $8000 from its Highs

by John Galt December 22, 2017 09:20 ET Millennial know it all’s, meet gravity: If this isn’t the start of something bigger to the down side the BOHICA when the crash really does come. Technically speaking however, there is little reason to expect major support until this breaks down below the $6,000 to $7,000 range with substantial volume. All of the cryptos are experiencing this year end profit taking so if anyone thinks this is over, well there is a week to go in the year roughly and with the Wall…


Yeah, This is Going to End Well (Terminators courtesy of Boeing)

by John Galt December 18, 2017 22:25 ET It is sort of weird. In the movie “Terminator, Rise of the Machines” no one saw it coming. Uh, huh. From the UK Daily Mail with a shocking revelation tomorrow: Oops, wrong video: So what is THIS story about; well, don’t sleep well after tomorrow’s announcement: (excerpted) Boeing will unveil their mystery aircraft on December 19th. Speculation has so far said it could anything from a new spaceplane to an electric fighter jet. Earlier this year Boeing bought Aurora Flight Sciences Corp, which…


Guest Post Special: Prepping – The moment of Truth

A guest post…. by Natty Bumppo December 15, 2017 05:00 ET It was cold and windy the winter of 2005 as I left the hotel in Ashland , Kentucky and drove to the studio to appear on a Daystar satellite television program. The name of which and the name of the host no longer remains in my memory. However I do remember Tammy. Tammy was the producer who had been in contact with me for several weeks and met me in the parking lot. She then brought me to a very…


Is Jeff Sessions Preparing to Nuke the Mueller Investigation in 2018?

by John Galt December 10, 2017 10:15 ET As America prepares to slumber into it’s dual holiday seasons of Christmas and drinking itself blind, aka, the post-Christmas to New Year’s Eve non-stop drinking party (or whatever the hell you consume), news is quietly being made and sometimes, looking beyond the headlines should wake everyone up. You know, headlines like these: Bias allegations in Robert Mueller’s probe offer Trump allies a new counterargument Yet another top FBI agent involved in Mueller’s investigation is being accused of political bias Mueller Removed Top Agent…


12/10 While You Slept Bitcoin Crashed and Recovered Again

by John Galt December 10, 2017 10:15 ET Twas two weeks before Christmas, And all through the Financial Houses, Not a creature was stirring, Except Crypto-mouses. Wow. The “stability” of crypto bubble currencies never ceases to amaze but what Bitcoin has been doing over the last three weeks is nothing short of Ponzi spectacular. Last night was no exception: A drop of over $2,000 since Friday with a bounce back to $15,000 all in one night. Someone in Asia apparently thinks the US futures debut will be a clusterfawk while others…


A Dangerous Encounter: US F-22 Chased Away over Syria by Russian Fighter Jets

by John Galt December 9, 2017 15:25 ET A very dangerous and irresponsible air encounter occurred over the Deir Ezzor region in Syria which could have easily tripped the world into a global conflict involving Russia and the United States. Per the Russian news agency TASS, a US F-22 fighter was performing dangerous maneuvers designed to interrupt operations of Russian Air Force SU-25 Frogfoot ground attack aircraft as the Islamic State was being driven out of its remaining positions in the region along the Euphrates River. Excerpt from the story via…


Bitcoin Might Reach $20,000 Before Winthorpe and Valentine Sell

by John Galt December 7, 2017 06:35 ET I’m not saying that the chart I posted last week looks vaguely familiar, but here it is again for those who emailed and commented on “Guess this Chart” last week: For those who wonder, it was the NASDAQ from August 9, 1995 until the top right before it crashed in 2000. The August 1995 date is significant because it market the debut of Netscape on to the market and the wave of .com bombs which caused a massive crash which followed. Which brings…


Today’s Old Man on the Beach in a Speedo Stock Market

by John Galt December 4, 2017 21:20 ET Well, you took the click bait so let me give you my rant before making your eyes hurt with today’s market action. Granted, I live close to one of the most beautiful and popular beaches in the world at Siesta Key, thus the dress code is somewhat lax, especially during the season when the northerners and Europeans invade. But for Pete’s sake people, especially you old guys, do not wear speedos or other European swimwear thinking you have a body like Borat with…


America’s Pathetic Crisis de Jour: A Christmas Tree Shortage

by John Galt December 4, 2017 20:15 ET With wars in the Middle East turning into bloodbaths, the US on the verge of nuclear war with North Korea, drug overdose epidemics nationwide, sex perverts in Hollywood and Politics everywhere, and of course a mainstream media willing to make up news to attack the average American middle class citizen or the President with their #FakeNews, what is the big story locally and nationwide? Yes, seriously. It’s all over the local news. It’s all over the national news. Pathetic. The United States of…


The NFL’s Roger Goodell is Actually PC Principal in Reality

by John Galt November 27, 2017 22:30 ET Watch this instructional video on PC Principal (courtesy of South Park) and then reflect: So what does the so-called PC Principal and Commissioner Goodell have in common? To get some idea, let’s review Rush Limbaugh’s rant on the NFL from 2016 with many thanks to the DailyRushbo via YouTube: The truth of the matter was obvious to any real NFL football fan several years ago when Princess Goodell was made the “Commish” of the league; he is a far left extremist anointed by…



Pelosi Defends Democrat Pervert Conyers

by John Galt November 26, 2017 10:45 ET Today on Meet the Democrats, er, Meet the Press, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the following: Excerpt from NBC News: “John Conyers is an icon in our country. He has done a great deal to protect women – Violence Against Women Act, which the left – right-wing – is now quoting me as praising him for his work on that, and he did great work on that,” she added. “But the fact is, as John reviews his case, which he knows,…

From the Shit You Could Not Make Up Part 122: Hillary Goes Nixon

by John Galt November 19, 2017 23:50 ET Just F’in wow. Hillary is actually believing the nonsense her supporters promote, just like Nixon did. Hillary Clinton actually claims the following (thanks to The Daily Caller for this one): “He didn’t tweet about it, he got to work about it and he actually got it done” Really? Listen you wicked bitch, it is sad enough you attack everyone who didn’t vote for you, which by the way was a majority of the nation outside the shitholes of the Northeast and West Coast,…


Despite Idealism, the Communist Mugabe in Zimbabwe was Not Deposed Due to Idealism

by John Galt November 19, 2017 23:35 ET This weekend the international and naive US media have once again portrayed the overthrow of the long standing communist dictatorship of Robert Mugabe as that of a “populist” revolution against a stale region. Trust me. It is 100% bullshit. This is about one thing which was announced by the Mugabe government in 2016 and ultimately will result in his downfall. From the UK Guardian on March 3, 2016: Robert Mugabe to nationalise Zimbabwe’s diamond industry If anyone thinks this is not enough to…


Israel has Sold It’s Soul to Islam in the Name of “Security”

by John Galt November 19, 2017 23:00 ET Today on Israeli Army Radio, the Israeli government admitted a deep dark secret which many of us have suspected: From Haaretz today: Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz said on Sunday that Israel has had covert contacts with Saudi Arabia amid common concerns over Iran, a first disclosure by a senior Israeli official of such contacts. In an interview on Army Radio, Steinitz was asked why Israel was hiding its ties with Saudi Arabia, which does not have diplomatic ties with Israel. Steinitz replied: ”We…


Why 2018 Will Continue to set Records for Stocks (Until it Doesn’t)

by John Galt November 19, 2017 22:00 ET The theory behind Trumponomics is as simple as it gets: Buy the bubble until you can not afford to. This is the same issue which arose during the 1990’s, yet few, if any, of today’s young quants can relate to the issues of that time which are mirrored in today’s era of stock froth and insanity. Old dogs like Dennis Gartman and Art Cashin wonder aloud why the traditional shorting and other strategies are floundering in the face of an overvalued market based…
