by John Galt March 26, 2015 05:00 ET Needless to say that old barbaric metal must be popular in the Middle East as an insurance policy against economic destabilization.

Obama’s Petulant Revenge: US Declassifies Intel Report on Israel’s Nuclear Weapons Program

by John Galt March 25,2015 20:33 ET The petulant emperor’s temper tantrum has reached new lows with the hatred towards Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu and apparent secret policy of anti-Semitism which runs rampant throughout the administration. Tonight, the Obama administration “suddenly” declassified very sensitive information about Israel’s nuclear weapons program, amazingly enough, on the eve of a possible non-written, undocumented agreement with the terrorist nation of Iran on their nuclear program. From the Israel National News, Arutz Sheva: US Declassifies Document Revealing Israel’s Nuclear Program Obama revenge for Netanyahu’s Congress talk?…

With the Death of the Saudi King, a US Invasion of Yemen is only Weeks Away

by John Galt January 22, 2015 21:45 ET Just about one year ago on February 5, 2014, I warned about events on the Arabian peninsula which have now come to fruition: Obama is about to Lose Another Arab “Ally” to Radical Islamists in Yemen Within that warning, I stated the following: Once Yemen falls, there is a proverbial line in the sand challenging Saudi dominance in the area and worse, it creates a hornet’s nest of Islamist radicalism potentially obstructing commercial traffic into the Red Sea and Suez Canal with Islamic…


12.05 TEOTWAWKI Radio Show: It’s not just the Economy Stupid, it’s Far Worse

December 5, 2014 17:00 by John Galt Today the stock markets soared to another record high, so let’s get drunk, stupid and celebrate, right? Maybe not such a hot idea. Everyone looks at the headlines, no one reads the stories, does their own research, or check on the truth. The mainstream media and regime along with various propaganda sources purporting to be “independent” are playing the American people for suckers and rightfully so. The next shoe to drop has begun and sadly it is going to change our society forever. Tune…

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?

08.10 16:30 ET BREAKING NEWS: Erdoğan Barely Wins First Popular Presidential Election in Turkey

by John Galt August 10, 2014 16:30 ET The implications for the re-election of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan should be viewed with great alarm in the West as his consolidation of power, albeit by not an overwhelming endorsement via the numbers from the voting population in Turkey. The war with ISIS (or ISIL, IS, whatever) will continue in the Middle East unabated as long as Turkey’s new Islamist leader supports them and provides a manner to filter weapons purchased with Qatari money into Iraq and Syria to supply the terrorists.

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…

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…

07.14 1800 ET BREAKING NEWS: Israeli Invasion of Gaza Strip to Begin Any Moment

by John Galt July 14, 2014 18:03 ET The precursor this blogger reported on over the weekend was just that, a softening up of positions as was the commando raid to attack a rocket facility and obtain intelligence on Hamas’ military strength and effectiveness. This just came in via some trusted sources of mine in Israel: All schools at every level, preschool through college and university are closed immediately. All hospital beds which have non-life threatening patients are being cleared and the patients sent home for home care. Civilians are being…

Is Saudi Arabia Fostering a False Flag Attack to Justify an Invasion of Iraq?

by John Galt July 7, 2014 20:50 ET Several hours ago, the following news broke across Twitter and newswires around the world: What is not unusual about this report however, is that the Saud media has censored any information about this attack as it was not reported via state organs including the Arab News newspaper.

Investing in War has Great Returns- Dubai Stock Market Rallies 3.68%

by John Galt June  13, 2014 20:15 ET It’s a good thing some of their businessmen and sheiks allegedly have invested in ISIS otherwise this week could have been a disaster for the Dubai Stock Market: (charts via Bloomberg.com) War is good when there is little threat of one’s tiny nation being directly involved and investing in conflict to create profit… Of course if a nation used to using the US military as its mercenary force may actually have to fight their own war on their own border against either terrorists…

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…

June 8th Middle East Stock Markets take a Mini-Swoon but Why?

by John Galt June  8, 2014 14:30 ET Interestingly enough, while the U.S. economy appears to be performing like the greatest  juggernaut of all time as it creates more part time McJobs than at any other point in our modern history, the Middle Eastern equity markets have also been chugging along quite nicely with many setting all time highs and recovering completely from the dire dark days of the Federal Reserve’s harvest of 2008-2009. Of course while the Dow and S&P 500 achieved new highs on Friday after the phony BLS…


Obama Considers the “Bush” Approach to Attack Syria

by John Galt June 5, 2014 09:25 ET As America’s slumber about the remainder of the world continues where a majority of citizens think Damascus is a wealthy white suburb of Chicago on the North side, reality is setting in for the remainder of the world that their survival might depend on the approval numbers for the Obama administration and the investment desires of the Qatari government. The following story from the Lebanese newspaper “The Star” should both give pause to Americans and encouragement to billionaires like George Soros and the…
