The Ultimate Guide to the Doom and Destruction for the Rest of 2015 Part 1: Economic Collapse

by John Galt July 26, 2015 18:00 ET 2015 could well be known as the year where we who were lucky, or unlucky, enough to survive may  have the opportunity to mark the beginning of the end of mankind’s civilized era of the past three hundred years as we know it. Pax Americana of the past 70 years also could become easily, the Iron Curtain of America as our society implodes as a result of events overseas, domestically, and worse, natural disasters warned about in the past, yet never properly prepared…

World War III will Begin in Babylon, not Libya

I have re-posted this story this evening as it is quite prescient and apparently was somewhat accurate except for the fact that I did not expect the Saudis to support a former Al-Qaeda group to achieve Sunni superiority in Iraq and thus quite possibly set the trip wire for a major world war…-JG By John Galt August 3, 2011 On the August 2, 2011 edition of the Glenn Beck radio program, he began a postulation that World War Three would begin in Libya and the distractions created by that might be…


Predictions for 2014 Print Edition

  by John Galt January  1, 2014 13:00 ET If you listened to my radio show this past Friday, you already know this story but for those foolish enough not listen via the archives or live, here are my predictions for 2014. Keep in mind I do not think anyone should use these predictions as investment advice and it is not meant to be construed as such, nor do I recommend using this information for anything other than building a fallout shelter with at least 1 foot thick reinforced concrete walls…



BREAKING NEWS: Michelle Obama Retaliates, Posts own Selfie from South Africa!

  by John Galt December  10, 2013 21:20 ET The bizarre Clintonian story of the day involves the Messiah-in-Chief becoming a Clinton-in-Wanting today by posting a selfie during a funeral which blows the Bubba in Chief away because all he could use was a Polaroid camera at the time (thankfully, I don’t have those pictures): Needless to say, Michelle Obama has that “Hillary” look in her eyes as the President of the Free World makes an ass of himself to well, everyone. How bad is the political, er, psychological, er, never…


Woo-Hoo! English Woman gives Birth to Another Globalist Monarch!

  by John Galt July 22, 2013 16:45 ET Whatever. If anyone questions my distaste, think about how the serfs who realized the decisions of 1913 and the creation of the Fed felt when royalty seized control of America once again; after all, if anyone doubts that Sir J.P. Morgan and any weasel from Le Squid are not controlling our destiny along with French and British royalty via the central banks, you are a moron. Hopefully, the Brits bow down to him and his parents as they elect to worship their…


India and China Square off Again after PLA Incursion into India

  by John Galt July 20, 2013 23:15 ET Whenever a nation is in the midst of an economic crisis or decline, war is the best, sometimes only, and most profitable solution. The rumors of war and conflict are usually proceeded by probes, teases, and outright taunts between enemies and in the ongoing conflict between China, India, and Pakistan, that is no exception. With all three secondary powers possessing nuclear weapons any conflict demands the attention of the West and this week there was another incursion into the disputed Ladakh region…


03.24 AEP: A Warning about World War starting in Asia

  by John Galt March 24, 2013 17:15 ET Just when everyone thinks the Cyprus issue is the big problem of the day, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard reminds us that the building conflict over the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea could easily lead to a superpower conflict which could destroy not just the economies of the Far East, but embroil the entire world in a war that will have profound consequences for China and the United States for decades to come. The article in today’s U.K. Telegraph titled: The dangerous drift…

10/23 Islamist Autumn Update: Tunisian Elections Experience Huge Turnout

By John Galt October 23, 2011 – 12:30 ET The dangerous turn of events in the MENA region are being paid their obligatory lip service from American politicians such as Senator Lindsey Graham on FNC”s Sunday news program, but the reality is the failure of U.S. foreign policy since President George H.W. Bush to address the balance between freedom, economics, and geopolitics in the area. The so-called “Arab Spring” has yielded promises of elections and the majority of citizens fully expect that their wishes are expressed at the ballot box and…


Our Ally at Work: Pakistan gave China access to Top Secret US Helicopter from Osama Raid

By John Galt August 14, 2011 – 13:15 ET The story just broke an hour ago from the Financial Times by Anna Fifield (registration required): Pakistan gave China access to US helicopter From the article: “The US now has information that Pakistan, particularly the ISI, gave access to the Chinese military to the downed helicopter in Abbottabad,” said one person in intelligence circles, referring to the Pakistani spy agency.

Coming Here Soon: London Endures Worst Riots in Years

By John Galt August 7, 2011 10:22 ET Funny thing is none of the Sunday news programs, cable news networks, or local television stations with their “international news” mentioned a word of this. From Reuters this morning: London wakes up to aftermath of worst riots for years 5:59pm IST By Michael Holden and Adrian Croft LONDON (Reuters) – London picked itself up on Sunday from some of the worst violence seen in the British capital for years which politicians and police blamed on criminal thugs but residents attributed to local tensions…


Seal Team 6 Copter Shoot Down: Is the CIA Erasing Evidence of the OBL Operation?

By John Galt August 7, 2011 09:30 ET As many of my readers and listeners know, I am not much for conspiracies from the extreme woo-woo land, but every now and then I will take a swim in the conspiracy pool and get a toe or two wet. This morning however, I think I’m diving into the deep end with this one and I hope you’ll follow my logic because the shooting down of the helicopter containing members of Seal Team Six which were involved in the alleged assassination of Osama…


Arab Spring to Islamist Summer Update: Goodbye Egypt, Hello Islamic Republic of Egypt

By John Galt July 29, 2011 The U.K. Daily Mail pretty much tells the tale of the tape today: Thousands demonstrate for an Islamic state in Egypt Then from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC): Islamist groups dominate protests in Cairo And from the Khaleej Times:: Two dead as armed men rampage through Sinai city Finally from the Chinese state news agency Xinhua with the story and photo: Egyptian capital sees rally with big turnout of Islamists CAIRO, July 29 (Xinhua) — Tens of thousands of Egyptians gathered in Cairo’s Tahrir Square…


Malaysia Goes Old School: Jews And Christians behind recent pro-Democracy Protests

By John Galt July 27, 2011 It’s always a pleasure to see that some old formula can be dusted off from the pages of history and restored for modern political purposes. Why let Hitler and the Arab governments monopolize bigotry and propaganda when shifting it several thousand miles to a Far East nation works just as well, even though many in the Muslim population have lived at relative peace with religious minorities in Malaysia for decades. Before the recent Berish protests (See: The Islamist Summer rolls on: 1,667 Arrested in Malaysian…


Propaganda Hilarity Ensues: Chinese Re-fitting Aircraft Carrier for “Scientific Research”

By John Galt July 27, 2011 Perhaps the Chinese Communist Party has dusted off some of their old news writers for this story out of the state controlled media this morning where the claim has been made that the aircraft carrier they purchased from the Ukraine which is readying for sea trials is being set up for “scientific research.” That reminds me of some of the old time stories you would hear on shortwave via Radio Tirana, Radio Moscow World Service, and currently on Radio Habana Cuba as they attempt to…


Chinese Fighters “repel” U.S. Aircraft in Taiwan Straits

This marks the first known encounter between US and Chinese military aircraft in mid-air since a US reconnaissance aircraft collided with a Chinese fighter jet in 2001 and was…


7/23 Cairo, Egypt Protests Turn Bloody-Over 230 injured

By John Galt July 23, 2011 The news overnight from Egypt is turning grimmer by the day. On Friday after prayers the protesters returned to march from Tahrir Square where thousands have been encamped since July 8 to the Defense Ministry building to show their displeasure over the police tactics and the slow pace of reforms under the military council. The best coverage comes from RIA Novosti below: Over 230 injured in Cairo protests 02:31 24/07/2011 MOSCOW, July 24 (RIA Novosti) A total of 231 people were injured when pro-democracy protestors…


Egyptian Protests Start in Alexandria Again

By John Galt July 23, 2011 While the lack of focus by the American mainstream media on the week long protests in Cairo were well underway, the fury of the original protesters and the new found disdain for the military has spread north to Alexandria, except this time the military did not let the protests expand beyond about 1,000 before firing shots in the air and beating marchers. From Reuters last night: Egypt police disperse Alexandria protesters-witness 23 Jul 2011 00:04 * Alexandria protest blocks road, military police fire shots *…


Shadowy Islamic Jihad Group Claims Responsibility for Norwegian Attacks

By John Galt July 21, 2011 I’m a little late to the story due to traffic but the latest does seem to indicate an Islamist radical group’s ties to the terrorist attack in Oslo and at the youth political camp today. From the website FastCompany: An obscure group called Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami (Assistants of the Global Jihad) posted a message on an Islamist bulletin board called Smukh and may have uploaded a video to YouTube several days ago predicting the attack, which may killed more than a dozen. Ansar al-Jihad’s Abu…

Islamist Summer of Rage Sunday News Summary

By John Galt July 17, 2011 The issues arising after the “Arab Spring” have re-emerged into a summer of Islamist rage, especially in those nations once romanticized by the Western mainstream media but as some of us tried to warn, never romance the stone when it has been whipped from a slingshot towards one’s face. The lack of reform is neither shocking nor unexpected in most of the nations where violence, protests, and economic duress have been ongoing for months now. This is a brief review of the stories since Friday…


Egypt’s Forgotten Arab Spring

By John Galt July 12, 2011 Ah the joys of the “Arab Spring” a mythical creation of the Western mainstream media…. The romantic notions of corrupted journalists was shattered with Lara Logan’s horrifying account of the reality on the ground during a 60 Minutes interview: Needless to say with the assaults on Fox News reporter Greg Palkot and his cameraman Olaf Wiig and the interview from 60 Minutes above, the Western media has not been in any hurry to validate nor verify the claims of a successful Arab rebellion against a…


Summer of Rage: Ireland-Bus hijacked, Petrol Bombs thrown at Police in Northern Ireland

By John Galt July 10, 2011 The situation in Northern Ireland apparently continues to deteriorate as last night’s violence was described as “serious public disorder” in Ballyclare Co Antrim according to the Irish Times Sunday edition. The following portion is from the story Bus hijacked during night of serious violence in North : Petrol bombs and other missiles were thrown at police and a bus was hijacked and used to ram a police vehicle. The violence flared at about 11.30pm last night when a crowd of up to 100 people began throwing…


The Islamist Summer rolls on: 1,667 Arrested in Malaysian Protests

By John Galt July 10, 2011 The video only begins to tell the story of another Islamic nation beginning its journey into the Islamist Summer from hell. The people of Malaysia are not exactly living the life of a truly free nation either and the protests which were supposedly blocked from happening as the roads were sealed off by the military and police turned out to be more of a government story rather than an effective means from preventing a large crowd from turning out in Kuala Lumpur, the nation’s capitol. …


The United Nations needs a Waaaambulance

By John Galt July 9, 2011 I just report what the leftist pantywaists say. From the BBC: Texas execution ‘violated international law’, UN says The US breached international law when the state of Texas executed a Mexican citizen convicted of raping and killing an American girl, the UN’s senior human rights official has said. Navi Pillay cited “particular legal concerns” whether Humberto Leal Garcia, 38, had access to consular officials and a fair trial. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also said she was “disappointed” that Texas carried out the lethal…


Egyptian Tahrir Square Protests Begin Again-Up to 1 Million expected today

By John Galt July 8, 2011 As of this moment, approximately 5:34 a.m. Eastern Time, hundreds of thousands of people are approaching Tahrir Square in Cairo once again to protest not just the pace of the reforms promised by the military junta, but to demand that the Mubarak cronies be held accountable for their actions. The lack of accountability and prosecutions for decades of corruption plus an extremely severe economic downturn in Egypt has triggered a demand by the people that the military stop delaying the reforms and immediately begin to…


7/6 Egypt’s Arab Spring movement Returns with More Protests

By John Galt July 6, 2011 Despite the belief that all is well and the election will pacify the populace, the collapsing Egyptian economy along with discontent about Arab policy towards Israel and the West has brought the people back into the streets of Cairo, this time with very little coverage from the U.S. networks or commentary from the Obama administration. The story from Reuters/IRIN this morning, More Protests in Cairo’s Tahir Square, highlights the anger and frustration of the masses after months of corruption and misdeeds by the military and…

Another PIIG(Italy) takes a Shot at Austerity while the Garbage Piles Up

By John Galt July 5, 2011 Two fascinating stories from the same online periodical New Europe which outline the problems the Italian little PIIGSy is running into: Italy mulls four-year austerity plan EU ‘very concerned’ by Naples trash Both stories are from Sunday July 3rd, but approaching each individually is the best way to demonstrate that Italy might be primed to jump ahead of Spain in the “reasons for the ECB to panic” race to the bottom. The Italian banks were already downgraded by the credit rating agencies so any news…

CISCO Aids the Police State

  By John Galt July 5, 2011 The scenes from the movie THX 1138 are foreign to many of my readers but for those that remember George Lucas’ look at a bleak, impersonal future managed by computers and enforced with brutal robotic killers, that reality moves closer every day. The definitive police state wet dream is what I would title that movie and based on the actions and desires of the Department of Homeland Security and American corporations, that reality is accelerating into our homes and neighborhoods at lightening speed. So…

More Clashes in Bahrain as National Dialogue Talks begin

  By John Galt July 2, 2011 For those naive souls who think that just because some camel (instead of kangaroo) courts convicted some Shi’ite leaders in Bahrain over the “Arab Spring” protests this year and the Saudi military retreated after perceived peace and quiet was restored, I present evidence that the West does not understand how Iran or the Shi’ites of the region nor how just how complex the situation is: Bahraini security forces clash with 500 protestors English.news.cn 2011-07-03 05:57:38 MANAMA, July 2 (Xinhua) — About 500 anti-government protestors…

The Arab Spring turns into an Islamist Summer

By John Galt June 29, 2011 As this author and many others have been warning for months now,the glorious extremist “Arab Spring” has rapidly deteriorated into an Islamist summer with protests and riots re-emerging but barely covered by the U.S. media in nations from Morocco to Tunisia, Egypt to Iraq, and throughout the regions where “reform” was the promise but reality would, as expected, dictate otherwise. The truth is being exposed now in a series of headlines over the last week where violent clashes returned to Cairo last night and Tunisia…

ICC issues Arrest Warrant for Momar Gaddafi

  By John Galt June 27, 2011 Apparently they have sent their best man out to conduct the arrest. Seriously. If any story is a bigger joke than this one, I am hard pressed to find out what it is. The story from Reuters: Hague court issues arrest warrant for Gaddafi is the biggest joke I’ve seen in years. A sovereign nation, engaged in a civil conflict now with foreign interests supporting both sides heavily, has its corrupt, psychopathic leader facing the horror of an ICC arrest. I tend to think…

The “Arab Spring” Continues: More Protests Set for Morocco

  By John Galt June 19, 2011 While America slumbers, the deterioration of the political condition of many of its key allies in the MENA region continues to accelerate. King Mohammed VI (also known as M6 in the country) proposed a series of reforms over the past week but kept key powers such as retention of the commander in chief role over the military and other political moves which despite an increase in civilian power, ultimately leaves the King as the supreme power in the land. According to a story from…

News that will be ignored by the MSM: Another Riot in China

By John Galt June 13, 2011 From Reuters this morning: Police use tear gas to quell riot in southern China The importance of this is not that it was reported but that a riot occurred at all. It would appear that the long simmering conflict between the numerous manufacturers with the migrant workers from the interior of China has gone into a full boil. The key statement from the article: The rioters smashed windows, set fire to government buildings and overturned police vehicles, bringing to a climax anger over security guards…
