Why the CIA, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar are Furious about Erdogan’s Russian Rapprochement

by John Galt August 14, 2016 23:00 ET Deep inside the bowels of Langley, Riyadh, and Doha, there are some furious individuals who thought their establishment of disorder and conflict would result in a new world order that eradicated those foes who failed to fall in line with their program would be destroyed economically. Instead, the tables have now been turned and the CIA, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar are now facing the most embarrassing reversal of fortune since America’s withdrawal from Saigon. The plan was simple: After Bashir Al-Assad, the dictator…


The Obama Administration Raises the Stakes as U.S. Military Illegally Occupies Airfield in Syria

by John Galt January 20, 2016 21:00 ET President Barack Obama once spoke of how the Bush administration used the military in an unwise fashion. During a MTV/MySpace candidate town hall on February 2, 2008 Obama said the following: For much of the campaign, Obama has sought to differentiate himself from Clinton by stressing that he was against the Iraq war from day one and, when asked if he would institute a draft as president, he once again used the occasion to put distance between himself and his chief rival. “I…

08.29 TEOTWAWKI RADIO SHOW: Help, I’ve lost my Strategy and I can’t Get Up!

by John Galt August 29, 2014 19:30 ET I don’t have a strategy for this show tonight. Yes, it is live but what should I do? Should I smoke some Bill Clinton pre-interned cigars? Should I play golf and phone it in? Should I get a big jet and fly my wife to expensive shopping malls and have my goons kick everyone out? Sheesh, only one hour to talk about not having a strategy yet I have to have one or this show could degenerate into a booze filled whine fest…

The U.S. Media has Ignored the Iranian Invasion of Iraq

by John Galt August 3, 2014 22:20 ET As Tikrit fell in early June there was a degree of panic felt in Baghdad, Washington, and Tehran that was not indicated until recently by the Sunni kingdoms of the Arab gulf but now has a palpable feeling of panic. The reason the Saudis moved their military to the Iraqi border to reinforce against an alleged radical terrorist army which their wealthy oil sheiks allegedly helped to finance (with major help from Qatar), was not to protect their nation from the threat of…


07.11 TEOTWAWKI Radio Show: Wars, Gold, and the North American Union Dominate the News

by John Galt July 11, 2014 05:20 ET It’s enough to make one vomit. The Idiot in Chief telling lies and never challenged by the media along with the cowardly Republicans refusing to do anything to stop his illegal actions. The wars breaking out all over the globe and Obama blaming everyone but himself for the severity of the situation. Gold and silver advancing nicely over the last 6 weeks but financial news still calling anyone who buys the precious metal complex basically barbarians or morons. And the North American Union…


Dubai Financial Market Crashes 8% as it Falls into Bear Market Territory

by John Galt June  24, 2014  05:45 ET The sell off continues this morning with total panic as the largest construction company in Dubai, Arabtec dropping over 9% per day since Sunday’s trading session as the company appears to be struggling as a viable concern. Add in the conflict in Iraq where the sheik’s investments in their own Sunni military might pay off or worse backfire and start a regional war between all of the major powers, then one could understand why the Dubai Financial Market is down over 27% in…


06.15 Middle East Financial Markets Down 1% to almost 5% on War Jitters

by John Galt June  15, 2014 08:00 ET Other than Bahrain, Israel, and Oman experiencing minor declines the nations with the most to worry about with regards to the conflict in Iraq experienced a financial jihad of their own today as markets declined from 1 to 5% throughout the region. A trader quoted in a Bloomberg-Businessweek article this morning said it best: “Any regional unrest is bad news for the market, certainly if it’s looking for an excuse to correct anyway,” Julian Bruce, the head of institutional trading at EFG-Hermes U.A.E….


Why Saudi Arabia and Qatar want to Eradicate Iraq

by John Galt June  12, 2014 22:00 ET On September 1, 2013, I published the following article referring to the idea of putting US troops on the ground in the Syrian Civil War: Just Say NO on Syria In that article, I stated the following: The desire to build a natural gas pipeline from Qatar and Saudi Arabia first took hold in 2009 but due to the uprisings within the “Arab Spring” which followed and massive instability created from the uprisings, Bashar Al-Assad’s distrust of the Sunni governments which supported the…


05.30 TEOTWAWKI RADIO SHOW: 8 pm ET 2 Hour War, Economy, and Hamster Spectacular

by John Galt May 30, 2014 04:30 ET Tonight’s show is to make up for last week’s vacation day and to report a ton of news. The crash which is about to occur is NOTHING like anything anyone alive today has experienced in their lifetime. Many will try to say “oh, it’s just a repeat of 2008” or other such nonsense; we could only hope. Add in the fact that the Ukraine is literally blowing up and the threat of wars starting and spreading around the world as low intensity conflicts…


Egypt Deals with Muslim Brotherhood Sentences 683 Morsi Supporters to Death

by John Galt April 28, 2014 05:05 ET One has to wonder how this will go over within the halls of the pro-Muslim Brotherhood Obama administration as the Egyptian military government has decided to firmly deal with the Muslim Brotherhood problem and former President Morsi’s supporters once and for all. From the Egyptian newspaper Ahram Online: Egypt sentences 683 Morsi supporters to death Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie among 683 people sentenced to death by a court in Minya, Upper Egypt Monday 28 Apr 2014 A court in Minya has…


America’s Ukrainian Petard

  by John Galt April 8, 2014 21:55 ET In ancient times, way, way back over a month ago, the Obama administration needed a distraction from the persistent attack on Obamacare by the conservative talk radio cabal and even his pet whores, the mainstream media. Voila, let’s turn the Ukraine issue into a big deal, distract the sheeple, and support the overthrow of a legally elected government there while at the same time downplaying the riots and marches against a Communist dictatorship in Venezuela which has detained thousands and possibly killed…


Another sign the Syrian Civil War is Winding Down: 25% of Saudi Fighters have Returned Home

  by John Galt March 24, 2014 18:45 ET The radical Islamists supported by Qatar and Iran might well be staging one final show of force to hold the line in Syria against Assad, the reality is that those “volunteers” from those nations with enough common sense to see the handwriting on the wall are coming home. Without firm US support, including advanced weaponry and if possible, air cover, there is no logical nor tactical way the rebels can defeat the Russian backed government in Syria. That reality appears to be…


03.23 BREAKING NEWS: Turkey Shoots Down Syrian Warplane

  by John Galt March 23, 2014 08:38 ET Breaking news per Al-Arabiya at 08:23 ET: Turkey downs Syria warplane on border By Staff writer | Al Arabiya News Sunday, 23 March 2014 Turkish anti-aircraft fire shot down a Syrian warplane on Sunday as it bombed rebels fighting to seize control of a border post in northwestern Syria, an NGO said. “Turkish air defenses targeted a Syrian fighter bomber as it struck areas of the northern province of Latakia.

The Arab Spring comes to Algeria with Protests and 3 Deaths this Weekend

  by John Galt March 16, 2014 21:40 ET As all eyes are focused on Russia and the Ukraine, the MENA region (Middle East-North Africa) continues to boil with Libya making waves almost daily and now Algeria experiencing rare anti-government protests on Saturday and Sunday after the 77 year old incumbent, President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, decided to seek a fourth term. The pro-Boutefika protests in Algeria were obvious propaganda as their stated purpose was to “motivate” the youth to get out and vote for the current leadership. However across town the protests…


World War Panic Grips Financial Markets

  by John Galt March 13, 2014 21:15 ET Today’s Dow Jones Industrial average may have only close 1.41% lower from its previous close but the market action from the intraday high indicates something spooked the market in a very violent manner early in the trading session after the prices were initially increasing: The market breadth was horrid. Very few issues were up in relation to real stocks (non ETF, REITs, etc.) that were down. Volume started to increase but this was not, I repeat, not an indication of capitulation but…


Is the Syrian Civil War Over?

  by John Galt March 9, 2014 22:10 ET The maps which sum up the Syrian Civil War are both religious and petroleum related: While the religious persecution and geographical split is important, the key aspect appears to be the Saudi desire to focus on the potential for a destructive conflict in the Ukraine and to abandon their plans for Syria for the last decade: Yes, that old map I first published on September 1, 2013 in the article “Just Say NO on Syria” was a clear indication as to why…


Saudi Arabia Betrays Obama’s Policies and Bans the Muslim Brotherhood as a Terrorist Organization

  by John Galt March 7, 2014 23:45 ET The graphic above indicates how serious the Interior Ministry of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has become about dealing with the Muslim Brotherhood and the Kingdom of Qatar. The diplomatic spat between Qatar and Saudi Arabia certainly has become greater as the Saudis fear that the Qatari government might well be playing the Brotherhood against their interests in the Middle East, complicating their ability to expand their relationships with China, Europe, and quite possibly even Israel regarding dealing with their long time…


Meanwhile in Tunisia: Another Arab Spring Obama Success Story Continues to Implode

  by John Galt February 5, 2014 21:00 ET Perhaps just a few of the headlines will provide some insight… 8 radicals die in Tunisia shootout Tunisia pins hopes on attracting investment to tackle high unemployment Policeman, two militants killed in clash in Tunisia Tunisia embeds protection of climate in new constitution – I’m guessing lead poisoning from Islamic courts does not count.-JG Of course the new Tunisian leader will be meeting with Obama soon so I’m fairly certain that nation will continue to be assailed like the success story known…

While Syria is the Focus, Another Arab Spring Obama Experiment in Libya is Collapsing

  by John Galt August  25, 2013 16:45 ET As the United States prepares another undeclared, unconstitutional, and unnecessary war against the nation of Syria, its last adventure into Libya is now imploding on a daily basis. When left wing globalist rags like Foreign Policy magazine recognize this fact, it is not rocket science to figure out that the crisis inside of Libya is far worse than advertised: Libya Goes for Broke The opening paragraph from the August 14th article by Fayuruz Abdulhadi tells the tale of woe imposed by the…


08/04 BREAKING – 2045 ET – Reports Rebels using Chemical Weapons in Rural Areas around Damascus

  by John Galt August  4, 2013 20:45 ET Only coming in via Twitter at the moment:     This is unconfirmed at this time but here are some Tweets from the region: Both sides are accusing the other of launching the attack but remember this important fact the U.S. media, including the so-called “alternative” media has yet to report: Libya manufactured Sarin gas in large quantities based on the Soviet formula also in an almost identical fashion as the Syrian regime did. While I am not a fan of the…


Car Bomb in Bahrain latest in Series of Islamist Terror Attacks

  by John Galt August 3, 2013 15:15 ET With the United States DHS accelerating its preparations of whatever warnings were received by monitoring Al Qaeda and US military shortwave radio nets as alive as if it were 1983 during the Cold War with Russia, the action around the world after the warnings were issued by the US State Department seem to have some prescience for the precautions our government has been taking overseas. Just reported via Reuters, a car bomb detonated near the capital city of Manama in Bahrain: Car…


The Arab Summer of Discontent Returns to Bahrain

  by John Galt July 7, 2013 14:00 ET The myth that the events which have occurred in Egypt are contained has now been shattered by a bombing at a police station in Sitra which has killed one police officer.

The Other Truth about Benghazi

  by John Galt May 9, 2013 05:00 EDT Yesterday afternoon, a brave group of whistle-blowers gave testimony which some considered explosive, I would consider just plain brave (from CNSNews.com):     Throughout the entire Libyan “revolution” ignited by quite possibly a teaming up of Saudi, Qatari, U.S., and U.K. intelligence resources, there were several factors which for a lack of better words “smelled quite rotten’ and had everyone scratching their collective heads. The questions that stood out in Europe and the United States related to the use of NATO resources…


The Cyprus Crisis: It Isn’t what it Seems

  by John Galt March 20, 2013 22:00 ET   In August of 2011 this blogger observed the following in an article titled “The Most Dangerous Stock Market in the World is now down over 90%“: In the nation of Cyprus, divided for decades between Turks and Greeks. Orthodox Christian and Muslim, the danger is real and somewhat buried in the back pages as other more pressing issues which impact geopolitics surpassed the region in importance. With the nation divided at gunpoint and distrust at all time highs, the last thing…

The Assassination of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens

  by John Galt October 31, 2012 05:00 ET   As the story about the death of four brave Americans doing what their nation had asked of them, at least from a government perspective, fades into the noise of the 2012 elections and the monstrosity known as the mainstream media, the question which must be asked is staring everyone in the face:   Did President Barack Obama order the assassination of the United States Ambassador to Libya and the subsequent cover up?   The supposition stated above is not a reach,…
