Why I Won’t Pay for the New York Times Propaganda Rag

By John Galt May 18, 2011 As many of my readers might be aware, I receive and try to sort through numerous news sources to provide information, commentary, and analysis on current events and the world in general. It means that sometimes I have to read propaganda rags like the Iranian “news” source PRESSTV or even the New York Times. The era of a “free” New York Times online ended several weeks ago and thus far they are claiming that the subscription model has been a modest success, however, considering their…

The Violence and Protests in Tunisia and Morocco Continue

By John Galt May 18, 2011 Despite a respite and the typical Western media approach of “if it’s not bloody enough, don’t cover it” the violence in the MENA region continues along with protests attempted against the regimes of the region. Here is a sampling of stories the last few days from the area via various sources: Reuters: Al Qaeda suspected in deadly Tunisia clash – source Tunisia demands Libya stop cross-border shelling Tunisia arrests al Qaeda suspects with bombs Tunisia arrests al Qaeda suspects with bombs Five guards taken hostage…

The Disturbing Video of Philadelphia Police Ignoring the Constitution and Their Own Laws

By John Galt May 17, 2011 ***** WARNING: EXTREMELY HARSH CURSING AND FOUL LANGUAGE (ALL BY THE POLICE I MIGHT ADD) ************* To add insult to injury this update from NBC in Philadelphia: Man Has Exposed Gun in Phila., Charged The charges? Disorderly content and “reckless endangerment” and that is why anyone with half a brain should be reading this grave concern. Mr. Fiorino was operating within the realm of the laws as written in Pennsylvania and these charges are more akin to petty revenge on the cop’s behalf rather than…

The Housing Disaster Rolls On – The Spring of our Winter Discontent

By John Galt May 17, 2011 The Commerce Department released the latest report on housing starts and permits revealed that no sane, logical, intelligent soul would accept the FIBS (Financial Infomercial Broadcasting Services, aka CNBC, FBN, BLM) mantra of the past year that housing has bottomed and that the recovery was well under way. Amazingly enough the preachings and screeching of the pro-regime talking heads was non-existent on the morning radio or television programs. Thus there is a realization that perhaps, just perhaps, free money from the Federal Reserve does not…

Irish Militants Issue Bomb Threat to Central London

By John Galt May 16, 2011 My ancestors in Ireland are back at it as predicted by yours truly on a radio show months ago shortly after the Irish government capitulated to the London and ECB banksters and mortgaged their nation’s future. The suspected militants are following the pattern of the “Real IRA” a splinter group not affiliated with Sein Fein or the Provisional group which surrendered most of their arms after peace was made years ago. This story breaks as the Queen is scheduled to visit Ireland tomorrow. More from…

The U.N. Condemns Israel again…Are you Kidding me?

By John Galt May 16, 2011 The breaking news from the largest Marxist NWO organization in existence, aka the United Nations, via Ynet News in Israel is not shocking but damned near pathetic: UN official condemns Israel’s use of force Perhaps this statement from the article  says it all: UN representative says Israel used “disproportionate, deadly force” when its soldiers fired on demonstrators marching toward the country’s borders. Unreal. Perhaps the IDF should follow the U.N. Peacekeeper example and just rape the women and children and enslave the select few to…

IMF will not force “Head” Man DSK to Step Down

By John Galt May 16, 2011 IMF Will Not Force Strauss-Kahn to Step Down (Story Developing) Headline only from CNBC and other wire services. No further details yet. Thank goodness for consistency as banksters don’t do time, their victims do.   ********************* UPDATE 1245 ET ******************** Judge denies bond per FBN and CNBC. Guess the obvious hit the Judge’s brain: He’s a flight risk. ************************************************************

Terrorists in Pakistan Kill Saudi Diplomat

By John Galt May 16, 2011 The violence in Pakistan has accelerated, first with a grenade attack on the Saudi consulate in Karachi four days ago (read it here at ArabianBusiness.com). Fast forward to the news breaking this morning where per Reuters a Saudi diplomat was just killed in Karachi by a gunman as he was traveling in a car belonging to the consulate. This news may not sound disturbing yet Al Queda has not been extinguished in the Arabian peninsula despite proclamations by the various Sheikdoms and that should give…

Empire State Manufacturing Survey – Getting Ugly

By John Galt May 16, 2011 The Federal Reserve Bank of New York just released their monthly survey and the ugliest data point beyond a huge decline from last month was the fact that prices paid were the second highest on record. The reading was 11.88 for May vs. 21.7 in April and does seem to add more ammunition to my theory that the Fed will pull the monetary reigns in during the summer and help to create a recession or at least a massive slow down for the last two…

CPI Necessities Chart for April 2011 – It’s Transitory

By John Galt May 15, 2011 It is becoming somewhat spooky when the words of Ben Bernanke haunt the mind, week after week, thus I shall do the best that I can to escape this transitory trap he has placed most commentators into. Except in this case the “official” CPI report from last Friday was without a doubt seriously a transition before a major commodity crash brings the prices down the BLS creates out of thin air and allows the Fed even more room to monetize every living thing, dead thing,…

Open Thread: So do you like the new look?

Just a quick note and open thread from your host. Sorry I was down for so long but a certain company that used to host this blog that begins with the letter “Y” was so WordPress unfriendly and their database structure so horrid that when I attempted the transfer they held it up for four days and of course let me with problems translating the archives from their format to the new structure so I’ll be rebuilding history for a few weeks. If you have to re-register, I apologize in advance…

Congressman Paul Ryan’s Big Lie

By John Galt April 18, 2011 Truly, this is one of those entries I did not wish to make. After returning from my trip this past week I decided to take the time to study Congressman Paul Ryan’s A Roadmap for America’s Future which even includes the flashy splashy easy to view front page for all to see:   There are marked differences between the original “roadmap” as proposed originally and the The Path to Prosperity: Restoring America’s Promise, most notably of which was the removal of the proposed Value Added…
