by John Galt January 28, 2015 20:30 ET Buried deep within the Federal Reserve’s Open Market Committee (FOMC) statement today was this gem which I feel has been misinterpreted by the financial blogosphere and especially or deliberately, the financial press. What is this gem and what do I feel it really means? Re-read this portion of today’s propaganda statement from the Fed and focus on the portion highlighted in red: To support continued progress toward maximum employment and price stability, the Committee today reaffirmed its…

Why Today’s Stock Market Numbers are Totally Irrelevant


by John Galt January 27, 2015 22:30 ET I could just be an asshole and just post the following without explanation to summarize today’s action: Good think I’m a “nice guy” (LOL). The first thing news sources like the Wall Street Journal (thank you for the screen shot above) and the electronic horn dog ‘there’s a bull in every crack and crevice media thanks to Apple earnings, is that everything awful today was due to Snowmeggadon 2015 and Global Warming/Climate Change, which from a Florida…

by John Galt January 27, 2015 22:00 ET To say that this past few days have been uneventful in the Donbas region, especially around the Debaltseve salient is an understatement.

by John Galt January 25, 2015 18:30 ET This is what happens when central banksters have what they do to taxpayers done to them. In this case, Greece appears set to flip off the thugs with the Syriza victory and shift back to the real Marxist model leaving Western banking cartels to eat dust or raise taxes on their own middle classes (again) to cover losses.

Meet Liam Neeson the Globalist Liberal Pro-Gun Control Moron of the Day


by John Galt January 12, 2015 18:25 ET Liam Neeson, formerly one of my favorite actors of the modern era, decided to display his ignorance of American culture and more importantly, the United States Constitution.

Bad News Sparky: All Savings due to Cheap Gas Eaten up by Obamacare Insurance Increases


by John Galt January 6, 2015 21:30 ET As the American media regales in the rapid decline in oil prices and parallel drop in regular unleaded gasoline prices, the miniscule amount of savings for the average family on a weekly basis was already spent thanks to six years of Euro-socialism culminating with the implementation of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act. How is this possible, my readers may ask with  that puzzled Kim Kardashian reality television show look? Let’s review some the news of the past…
