The Ultimate Bitcoin Crash Nightmare

by John Galt July 30, 2017 19:00 ET The experts in Bitcoinland have been proclaiming how great this cryptocurrency is and shall be into the future. The “experts” also claimed that it was healthy for the cryptocurrencies that the Securities and Exchange Commission required ICO’s (Initial Coin Offerings) within the United States to be treated somewhat like IPO’s (more at this link).  However, and as usual with new technologies (a la Portfolio Insurance, Derivatives, etc.) the SEC is already 4 years behind a burgeoning multi-billion dollar industry as most nation’s regulators…

You Deserve to be Eaten by a Zombie IF…

by John Galt August 17, 2015 20:45  ET Just Sigh. I get older, you get older or at least some of you seem to, and we witness a new generation of “zombie” preppers and survivalists emerge preparing for the apocalypse as if they ever had to face Soviet missiles about to obliterate everyone they know in town. Sigh. Instead of the USSR because so many of the younger prepper think that is just a cool t-shirt now, I thought a modernized version of analyzing those who will or deserve to die…


What to Expect when Ebola or Other Contagion Hits the US Mainland in Large Numbers

by John Galt August 4, 2014 19:40 ET The current Ebola scare in New York City may well turn out to be another false negative or buried report with those “possibly” infected suddenly vanishing into isolation wards on military bases around the region but the question has been raised all over the internet earlier this afternoon: What IF this is the big one? By the big one I interpret that to be a contagious, highly lethal disease with a 60%+ mortality rate escaping the control of the government and spreading across…


TSHTF Inflation

  by John Galt March 21, 2014 20:15 ET 20 cans of Tuna? Check 100 MREs? Check. 20 bushels of Corn? Check. 2 rolls of pre-1964 ‘Junk’ Silver dimes? Check. 400 rounds .22 LR? Check. 500 rounds .223 ammo? Check. Sounds like a nice stash of survivalist/prepper goods to start with doesn’t it? I could continue on with the list but it only begins to belie the myth that sadly so many members of the prepper community believe to be their ideal that they are 100% prepared for the collapse of…

Are you Really Prepared? I thought I was until…

  by John Galt August 3, 2013 21:00 ET     A long presentation but well worth it, but what does that have to do with preps and yours truly, the author of this website almost committing a fatal sin and destroying a key portion of my survival plans? I ignored my own website and it almost cost myself and more importantly, my family. What did I ignore one might ask; well this: For all of my preparing, for the potential for an economic disaster, surviving in a situation similar to…


Just Wait Because I’m not Ready Yet

  by John Galt May 7, 2013 05:00 EDT A Warning for the Unprepared Prepper… Last year, yours truly penned a piece titled “It’s Time to Accept Reality that it’s Too Late.” It was an echo of the words I uttered on radio many years ago that if one wishes to survive the oncoming threat of a United States based dictatorship using a corporatocracy inclined Fascist system to control the masses, that the two words one did not want to hear were that it is “too late.”  I honestly pray for…


Attention Carry Concealed Licensees, Ham Radio Operators, and Precious Metals Owners: Registration is Confiscation

  by John Galt April 12, 2013 05:00 EDT     Think it can’t and won’t happen here? Think again. In every case where a totalitarian dictatorship was progressing which restricts the freedoms and rights of citizens, seizing the firearms of the average person was always and still is goal number one. To make matters worse, the pointing at the Canadian example does nothing to impede the thought process of cowardly Republicans defending the idea because the thought of obtaining more financial support far supersedes their oath of office and to…


When the Watchmen Go Silent

  by John Galt March 26, 2013 05:00 ET    Acts 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. – King James Bible “Authorized Version”, Pure Cambridge Edition .. “airpower holds out the hope to the nations that, in the future, air battles taking place miles away from the frontiers will be so decisive and of such far-reaching effect that the nation losing them will be willing to capitulate without resorting to a further contest on land or water…


The United States of Jail

  by John Galt March 15, 2013 05:00 ET     MSNBC asked this key question on March 4, 2011 in the story linked below: Why do America’s police need an armored tank? That’s a damned good question as the vehicle demonstrated in the vehicle above is specified to resist a .50 caliber bullet and all other small arms fire that “average” civilians use inside the United States of America and overseas. So just why does the Department of Homeland Security feel that it is necessary to provide $300,000 grants to…


Part of the OLD Documentation behind America is now officially F#@!ed from the USAF

  by John Galt February 25, 2013 17:35 ET     For those who have the cahones and ability to read and write, here you go:       Of course I’m just hyping up twelve and eight year old papers for nothing. There has been zero technological innovation since 2005 right?   Nah, we’re all still married to our PERSONAL COMPUTERS, so never mind, the skeptics are right, MAV’s are no big deal. Got Terminator movies?  


America is now officially F#@!ed

by John Galt February 25, 2013 05:00 ET   “Wolverines!” Yup, America’s rebels have won the day again. Of course reality in today’s era is far different from the Cold War ideology and mindset of the youth and even us old farts compared to what is happening now. In fact if there is one conclusion anyone with experience in reality and who dares to be honest with themselves and their family can easily reach, it’s this: America is F#@!ed. I have censored the word all of you have read aloud or…


Guerrilla Radio Listening and Broadcasting

  by John Galt October 1, 2012 19:00 ET   What is Guerrilla Radio?   The background picture for this webpage is an illustration from an archive of historical pictures of the French Resistance during World War II. Why is this pertinent to the show last Friday?   It is time for a dose of reality for those souls who think that we will not endure the horrors of those inhabitants under Nazi German rule or worse, the people trapped behind the Iron Curtain of Communist dictatorships around the world. Why…


The Most Dangerous Executive Order Ever issued by Barack Obama

  by John Galt July 9, 2012 19:45 ET   This executive order essentially gives the Department of Homeland Security unlimited powers to seized, monitor, and control all aspects of radio and internet communications, up to and including cell phone service, in the event that the President declares a national emergency. This means that all privately held communications equipment, including personal computers, cell phones, amateur radio equipment, AM, FM, or Shortwave transmitters can be seized with no warning.   On June 25, 2012, President Barack Hussein Obama declared such an emergency:…


This Could be the Go Time Weekend

  by John Galt June 14, 2012 12:00 ET   First and foremost, this is just an advisory of what my personal plan of action will be over the next 120 hours and not a recommendation for anyone to repeat or engage in any of these actions, especially if they can not afford to do so. There is not guarantee that this is the weekend where the events in Europe and the Middle East create the ultimate storm of financial disruption which washes over the American seawall like a Tsunami of…


Prepetorial #27: A Pledge of Allegiance

by John Galt February 13, 2012 22:30 ET   “I pledge allegiance, To the flag, Of the United World States of Freedom, And to the Democracy, For which it stands, United, In Peace, Freedom, Liberty, And Social Justice for all.”    After the children in Mrs. Halstead’s third grade class at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School of Muncie, Indiana finished the morning drill, each student stood for three seconds with their right hand in an oath taking position as instructed since their kindergarten education began. The morning assembly had changed somewhat since…


130 Million Americans without Electricity? It’s possible in 2013…

by John Galt February 7, 2012 18:00 ET   Early in 2013, the eleven year solar cycle which has been running a tad bit behind schedule will finally peak and some engineers are concerned about the consequences of the event. Consider the following: – Utilities have been generally negligent in maintaining older systems or upgrading to handle sudden shocks or surges. To validate that I invite anyone who lives from Florida throughout the Mid West where thunderstorms are often violent and extensive but creates an unstable grid miles away from where…



Prepetorial #25: No Exit Ahead

by John Galt January 24, 2012 17:00 ET   It has been a few years since I wrote the initial 24 part Prepetorial series and I feel like I never really finished the writings with a climatic finish. I remind everyone that the first portion in italics is a fictional account of a potential future event and how I perceive one might prepare for that situation. While the technology exists for everything described in the fictional portion below, the legal implementation indicated in the story has not happened. Yet.   Our…


1.20 V of Galt Survival Hour: The Very First item to Vanish when TSHTF

By John Galt January 20, 2012 Live 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. EST TONIGHT: Tonight we’ll start the program with a quick and dirty financial report then a discussion and contest about the very FIRST item to disappear when TSHTF, the world goes MadMax, or Jericho becomes a reality TV show (whatever you want to call it). Then I’ll offer my input and take the listeners calls on ideas on how to obtain that item and protect it at all costs. To call into the program dial: (877)213-6404 or (812)307-4363. Just…


New Strain of Swine Flu (H3N2v) Detected in U.S. with Potential for H2H Transmission

by John Galt January 11, 2012 21:30 ET Just when everyone thought it was safe to shake hands, kiss babies, and meet politicians again, the story from US News and World Report caused me to take a deep N-100 filtered breath: 12 Infected With New Swine Flu Strain (click on the link above to read the full story) Why is this story so disturbing? Because of the timing, an election year with radical Islamist terrorism on the rise, and the worldwide economy facing collapse on any unanticipated event. These two sentences…


The Tools of America’s Future Police State

By John Galt December 19, 2011 – 08:40 ET Now that the NDAA has pretty much guaranteed that the entire country is about to be subjected to illegal search and seizures, beyond what has been occurring under the Patriot Act, I think a glimpse into the various instruments the government is acquiring to monitor and enforce whatever plans they have for its citizens is in order. I discussed these instruments of liberty’s destruction on last Tuesday’s program as I was quite angry about the alleged Tea Party patriots of the House…



Prepetorial#18: Vienna Weiners

Prepetorial#18: Vienna Weiners By John Galt July 17, 2008 The little store marked “Joe’s 24” sitting off Highway 87 near Jay, FL has changed hands a few times in the last 4 years, but now in 2010, it became the meeting place for everyone crossing from Alabama into Florida and vice versa to get goods and gas. This little country store had become a symbol of the resilience of American ingenuity and business acumen because despite the food and gas ration programs, Joe always had enough gas and stock to meet…


Prepetorial #14: “The Arctic Express”

by John Galt April 20, 2008 Mike was stunned when his wife and kids accepted the offer to “get out of Dodge” and make a run for it. The “Springfield Slaughter” was all it took for the kids to be totally terrorized and the wife to finally say “okay prepperboy, you were right!” The FEMA food lines in Springfield, MO where over three thousand people deep and when the food ran out a riot ensued. That was met, of course, with harsh action from machine gunners surrounding the area and two…
