November 13, 2016 World War 3: The U.N. Gambit

by John Galt August 21, 2016 03:00 ET I apologize for the pause in this ongoing blovel, however, I honestly thought and still think that by this time on Wednesday morning we may still face the possibility of a major conflict erupting should the Poroshenko government keep pressing the issue at the same time the Syrian and Russian Air Forces are bombing near United States Special Forces units inside of Syria. That being said, this story may become the exception versus the rule with the timing being incorrect, which I admit…

Nine days later the world was introduced to Blitzkrieg, total war, and an overwhelming modern invasion of…

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? Turkish president Erdoğan breaks down in tears at coup victim’s funeral as he calls his opponents a ‘virus’ who must be purged  The…

06.19 Latest Videos from Syria: What Ceasefire?

by John Galt June 19, 2016 14:30 ET For some strange reason the United States and Russia are trying to maintain the charade of a “ceasefire” inside the rapidly imploding war zone known as Syria. These videos from various news sources tend to dispel that myth. Where the subject matter was posted in Arabic or another language, I have used Google Translate to accommodate my readers. When a terrorist pick up truck is seen with a group of terrs in Aleppo yesterday, simply dial 1-800-KORNET!: Okay, maybe I embellished that translation…


The US Military is Not Ready for World War III

by John Galt June 15, 2016 19:45 ET Sigh…now I really miss the 1980’s. Not for the reason anyone might think as the women were fun, the music better, and the U.S. military was recovering from it’s Jimmy Carter induced slumber. As an American citizen in that era, the threat was not from some Jihadi Joe coming to the good old U.S.A. on a student visa or refugee program here to rape or kill my wife or shoot up night clubs. In fact by the late 1980’s the biggest threat to…


Saudi Arabia – Iran Feud Heats Up: Iranian Pilgrims to miss Hajj, Blames Saudi Arabia

by John Galt May 29, 2016 21:45 ET Just like two drunken camels fighting at a Bedouin discotheque, the relative peace in the Iran-Saudi economic and military conflict could not be counted on to remain silent for too long. As the Saudi proxy army ISIS is facing the possibility of massive defeats in Iraq and Syria, now Iran is accusing the Saudi regime of “blocking the path to Allah” and forbidding its pilgrims from making the sacred journey known as the Hajj. From Zee News in India today: Iran says to…


04.17 14:30 ET BREAKING NEWS: OPEC Doha Meeting Ends with No Agreement

by John Galt April 17, 2016 14:30 ET In a not so shocking development, the Saudis and Russians could not find middle ground for agreement to freeze oil production until October of this year as Saudi Arabia insisted on some sort of output reduction guarantees from Iran. The news just broke in the past 20 minutes, here is Reuters breaking news on the meetings: OPEC and non-OPEC producers on Sunday failed to reach a deal to freeze oil output, three oil industry sources told Reuters.

02.09 Russia, Hezbollah, and Syrian Army Pound Islamist Rebels near Aleppo (VIDEO)

by John Galt February 9, 2016 20:45 ET Thanks to Twitter and YouTube everyone can keep one eye open on the battle for and around the Syrian city of Aleppo and the developing crisis for the Islamist rebels supported by America, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey. With the city essentially encircled and the supply lines from Turkey now cut off, the Russians and Syrians continue to pound the rebels into submission with a strategically well conceived winter offensive which will force submission of the civilian population and probably a surrender and/or slaughter…



01.17 Middle East Markets Plunge as Iran Plans Massive Oil Exports

by John Galt January 17, 2016 09:40 ET OUCH! While U.S. markets may be closed for a government union sponsored day off on Monday, the rest of the world’s equity markets are imploding once again. The lifting of economic sanctions by the United States and United Nations was promptly followed by the Iranian government promising to ramp up oil exports as soon as today or Monday. The resulting addition of more oil to the markets and an illiquid Asian equity situation should set up a nice crash in Brent prices overnight…

by John Galt January 3, 2016 21:40 ET Here it is an innocent first night in 2016 trading with Iran and Saudi Arabia fighting over the same camel (it’s sexual this time) and of course US equity index futures originally opening higher this evening.

That of course took an already fragile Japanese market down further…

by John Galt December 4, 2015 18:55 ET In what can only be called a major destabilization and possibly one of the most absurd stories of the night from the Islamist state of Turkey, the entire situation in the Middle East may have taken a step far closer to the start of a multi-nation World War(From the Turkish newspaper Hürriyet Daily News): Turkish troops in Mosul for training Yes, seriously… At least several hundred Turkish soldiers have been deployed to provide training in northern Iraq’s Mosul region to the Peshmerga and opposition…

by John Galt November 17, 2015 19:30 ET Don’t piss on the bear unless you can handle getting hit by the claw. Apparently ISIS hasn’t figured out that they should have broadcast pictures of their “fighters” feeding infants instead of raping and beheading them as Russia in coordination now with France has basically told Obama to F. Off and started bombing the living dog snot out of ISIS in Raqqa and selected other targets as another pre-winter offensive begins. This time it is different however with both Russia and France assisting…

by John Galt September 27, 2015 09:30 ET And in turn, Remove the United States as a Superpower in the Middle East On post super blood moon Monday, Vladimir Putin will be meeting with President Obama to discuss the ISIS crisis in the Middle East.

Is Saudi Arabia Begging US Banksters for an Economic Bailout?

by John Galt September 7, 2015 19:00 ET The first observation is the biggest lie of them all; that the crash in oil prices has not hurt the Saudi Arabian stock market and economy. The Tadawul All Shares Index (TASI) demonstrates this fact (chart courtesy of Bloomberg): Thus this could be one of the reasons for the peculiar headline from the Financial Times this evening: Saudi Arabia’s king meets top US executives in investment drive Usually it is the other way around; US executives beg the Saudis to invest part of…


The Ultimate Guide to the Doom and Destruction for the Rest of 2015 Part 2: World War

by John Galt July 27, 2015 21:40 ET 2. World War III World War III appears to be on the horizon with some postings around the internet speculating it could start in the magic time frame of September or October of this year. Of course, I have warned what would happen if there was an outbreak of war between the United States, Russia, and China. But this could pale in comparison to everything else which the United States and world as a whole could endure before this year ends. The unfortunate…


President Obama offers Israel an Olive Branch on Iran Deal: Jonathon Pollard to be Released by U.S.

by John Galt July 24, 2015 17:00 ET In what can only be called an attempt to pacify the wealthy New York City ultra-socialist pro-Israeli Jewish lobby in New York City (so they will keep giving Obama and his cronies money) the Obama administration is apparently about to release super-spy Jonathon Pollard according to numerous media reports. The Jerusalem Post reports it as follows: US preparing to release convicted Israeli spy Pollard (excerpted) WASHINGTON – The Obama administration is preparing to release Jonathan Pollard, a US Navy intelligence officer convicted of…


The Real Reason for the Sudden Iran Nuclear Deal

by John Galt July 14, 2015 20:40 ET IN the wee hours of this morning, President Obama’s team lead by the former head of Emily’s list and Secretary of State John Kerry capitulated to the Iranian mullahs and basically gave the regime in Tehran almost everything they asked for in a structured nuclear deal. This deal, as analyzed by numerous arms control experts, former heads of the IAEA, members of the US military, and objective observers in Israel have rated this not only as a disaster for world peace, but a…


The Saudi King Returns the Insult to Obama – Will not Attend Camp David GCC Meeting

by John Galt May 10, 2015 19:00 ET The ongoing tit-for-tat exchange of diplomatic slights continued today as Riyadh sent the message to President Obama in a loud and clear signal: You are irrelevant. When President Obama initially refused to attend the State Funeral for the deceased Saudi King the House of Saud and all the member states of the Arabian Peninsula rightfully viewed this as an insult. King Salman, in typical Saudi fashion, has decided to return the insult and dismiss the importance of President Obama’s conference in one move…

Iran to get Nukes, Israel Angry, and Yemen being Invaded; Guess Where Obama is Going?

by John Galt March 26, 2015 19:40 ET While Michelle Obama is in Southeast Asia destroying what relationships we have with our remaining allies in that region: Cambodian prime minister criticizes Michelle Obama visit Ah well, maybe it was her dance moves.

After all, selling out America’s only ally in the Middle East which just happens to be the only democracy in…

by John Galt December 29, 2014 18:45 ET Yeah, that guy.

The story from the Khaleej Times of Dubai, December 30, 2014: US embassy not ruled out in Iran, says Obama Yes seriously.

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…

by John Galt July 20, 2014 08:45 ET Once again the idea that war(s) is or are good for the Middle East Sheikdoms appears to be a rumor only as the markets in the GCC are getting whacked again, especially in the United Arab Emirates where Dubai is down 5.99%: Without any major news events other than the wars in the Ukraine, Gaza Strip and Israel, Syria, and Iraq apparently to drive activity one has to wonder if this is a hint that the entire region expects to be engulfed in…


07.19 BREAKING NEWS: Israel Expands Ground Operations in Gaza Strip

by John Galt July 19, 2014 23:45 ET Via the IDF- Hitting Hamas Tunnels in Gaza: Apparently the influence of the ketchup king who portrays himself as a barely adequate United States Secretary of State is irrelevant in the world once again as John Kerry’s “peace efforts” to find an amenable solution to reach a cease fire fell on deaf ears in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Cairo, and whatever international city Hamas declares as their new evacuation capital. The Israeli government and people have had enough and elected to expand their ground…

The Voice of America Demonstrates it is Managed by Chamberlainesque Idiots at the State Department

by John Galt June  30, 2014 20:30 ET Any day now, I expect Obama or someone from our the United States Department of State to come out and proclaim, “peace in our time.” The Voice of America continued its decline into irrelevancy today as broadcasting into some of the most tension ridden and conflict infested regions of the world was terminated by the morons that run the International Broadcasting Bureau (IBB) under the control of the United States Department of State. From the website BBG Watch: Bureaucrats gave listeners little time…


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.
