Hillary and the DNC Demonstrate that Corruption is Their Speciality


by John Galt July 24, 2016 19:05 ET Is there really any comment necessary beyond this Tweet? Immediately after announcing she'll step down from DNC, Hillary shamelessly rewards Schultz w/ top campaign position — Abby Martin (@AbbyMartin) July 24, 2016 That’s what is so funny about all this. She gets some peace and quiet then Hillary finds a way to prove she’s more corrupt, crooked, and evil than the mental case who is the Republican nominee. She deserves to lose and so does America,…

Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson Starting to win the Hollywood Endorsements


by John Galt July 24, 2016 17:30 ET Yeah, that guy. The Libertarian Presidential Candidate, in fact the only Presidential candidate to climb Mount Everest. In what I would call a bizarre twist, if this is not the start of truly liberty loving souls in Hollywood daring to upset the Hildabeast/Trumptard domination of the political landscape then this story means nothing; however I think it is a hint of a deluge of endorsements and money to come (From Red Alert Politics): Drew Carey endorses Gary…

Alex Jones Shows his Ass Again: Gets into Confrontation with the Young Turks Program ON THEIR SET! (Video)


by John Galt July 21, 2016 19:30 ET Even though Roger Stone is in the picture initially trolling with Jr. Space Cadet Trumptard 1st Class Alex Jones, it tells you everything you need to know about the Trump campaign when they decide to allow him to partially be a part of their media campaign. Alex is not what I would call a positive reinforcement for the American people but hey, he has seen Charlie Sheen’s hernia and I can’t make that claim to fame (start…

This is Now my Favorite Republican Convention Moment of all Time (Video)


by John Galt July 20, 2016 05:30 ET Normally the conventions are boring affairs. The powers in charge crush the average people, violate their own rules (like they did on Monday in Cleveland), and never stick to a schedule so working people go to bed before the good speakers come on late at night. Didn’t they learn anything from the declining MLB prime time ratings? Thus when Melania Trump spoke on Monday night, I missed the entire plagiarizing portion of the speech which was suddenly…

Hillary Clinton has Another Reason to Hate Obama


by John Galt July 19, 2016 20:45 ET Poor Hillary. Okay, I’m joking and right about now the 5 Clintonistas that read my blog on a daily basis are probably blathering about what kind of hate I’m about to spew about their witch, er, candidate. Unfortunately, for them, this is an observation on the gift that keeps on giving: the manipulated fraudulent Obama economy. After eight years of manufactured and at best fictional economic data the Clinton campaign should be worried about what is about…

WAR DRUMS: China Blames Japan for the Hague Decision on the South China Sea


by John Galt July 18, 2016 21:00 ET Normally I would not give much credence to an editorial in the People’s Daily from China, however since this is the official public organ of the Chinese Communist Party it is crucial to understand the war drums that are beginning to pound louder by the minute after the decision by the Hague on China’s interests in the East and South China Sea. First the editorial from the People’s Daily this morning which indicates who is to blame…

Sheriff David Clarke Points out to Don Lemon that Liberal Bias is B.S. (Video)


by John Galt July 18, 2016 19:30 ET Sheriff David Clarke p*wns the sissy Don Lemon at CNN by actually quoting facts, citing reality, and supporting his argument by using the Constitutional powers vested in him by the people of Milwaukee County. Another reason for my readers to divorce the MSM and stay on the internet and shortwave until the information is cut off by the government and the Bill of Rights eventually gets suspended. It is a shame the good Sheriff did not remind…

North Korea Fires 3 Missiles Tonight and No One Cares


by John Galt July 18, 2016 19:10 ET Sad isn’t it? Turkey has a false flag coup, the United States experiences a rash of racist inspired terrorist attacks on police, and the Republicans have a convention full of morons acting like us little people don’t even matter. Which means, guess what? That’s right, the short little turd in North Korea felt the need to fire 3 Intermediate Range Ballistic Missiles into the ocean to prove that he still has a steady supply of Viagra. From…

Cleveland, OH: Now the Circus Comes to Your Town (Video)


by John Galt July 18, 2016 17:50 ET What a nightmare. The RNC convention kicked off last night with the Republican nominee, one Donald Trump, interrupting his Vice-Presidential Candidate, Governor Mike Pence repeatedly during a joint interview on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Bad? No, typical actually. But today, the RNC conspired with the Trump forces and using the establishment’s backing killed any future grass roots efforts which would ensure the Tea Party or other pro-Conservative movements a voice in the Republican Party nominating or electoral process.…

Someone forgot to Tell Donald Trump that ISIS is in Iraq


by John Galt July 18, 2016 05: 30 ET It hasn’t even been 24 hours since the 60 Minutes interview aired and all anyone can say is “ugh.” From the joint Trump/Pence interview this quote came out again (via The Hill): Trump said the country needs to declare war on the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and did not rule out putting troops on the ground. “We have people that hate us. We have people that want to wipe us out. We have…

The Failed Coup in Turkey Shows Why Shortwave Radio is Still Relevant


by John Galt July 17, 2016 21:00 ET There have been many a eulogy presented for the hobby of shortwave radio listening and broadcasters over the past five years so highlighting the statements of the obvious does nothing but fulfill the age old argument that the internet has replaced radio and soon we won’t have any need for AM, FM, or Shortwave because of modern technology. That statement is true, if you wish to live in a world like current day Iran or China is…

Did Saudi Arabia Help Erdogan with the Attempted Phony Coup?


by John Galt July 17, 2016 15:50 ET The story from the Western media is totally inconsistent with the pro-Government Turkish and Middle Eastern propaganda outlets as the period some thirty-six hours after the coup comes into clear view. The headline on the Drudge Report earlier today summed it up quite nicely: The story it the Drudge Report linked to was from the U.K. Daily Mail: Crocodile tears?

A Serious Warning About the French Terrorist Attack for American Citizens


by John Galt July 15, 2016 05:00 ET I wish to start this commentary and warning with a reflection. Innocent people were enjoying their lives in Nice, France last night when terrorism struck again, killing over 70 people, injuring over 100, and once again putting the nation on France on the razor’s edge. I pray for the victims and their families, and the French nation as they have endured enough. That being said this was a huge warning to all Americans in our own homeland…

The Smart Money is Betting on More Economic Pain Today


by John Galt July 5, 2016 05:15 ET The smart money, as I warned about last week, is ignoring the so-called low volume rally and fleeing to safety. Need proof?

Regardless of what the bubbleheads say on financial television this will be a massive shift of billions of dollars out of potential investment pools for…
