  by John Galt July 2, 2013 22:20 ET Egypt is on fire, over 50 killed in bombings in Iraq, U.S. foreign policy is focused on a 29 year old hacker while Syrians die by the hundreds, oil soars over $102 per barrel so of course, Asian markets are dropping hints about the turmoil and tumult about to hit the U.S. markets during a short day of trading tomorrow. All quotes are from Yahoo Finance and delayed 15 minutes and actively update until the close of trading. Australia: Japan: Hong Kong:…


The Superpower Behind the Turkish Protests

  by John Galt June 4, 2013 05:00 ET   To understand the rage and news from Turkey and the alleged “Turkish Spring” being promoted by some websites and commentators, one has to have a deep understanding of the friends and enemies the nation of Turkey has acquired in eighty plus years of independence and Westernization thanks to Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. In the West, the British still resent the Turks for their unwillingness to take up arms against the Nazis in World War II. Believe it or not, some Germans hold…


Was Tim Tebow Fired Because He’s a Christian?

  by John Galt May 2, 2013 05:30 EDT Tim Tebow, welcome to the world of Christian persecution. No, not like the administration ignoring rape and murder of Christians in the Arab Spring nations, nor that of those being evicted from millennial old homelands in Egypt, Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon. This is the continuation of the American persecution led by the elitist citizenry who want to force feed grown adults arugula and broccoli and teach their children how to call the Department of Homeland Security on their parents for offering financial…


Predictions 2013: The Year of Living Dangerously

  by John Galt January 1, 2013 17:00 ET   2013.   Bah Humbug.   Washington, D.C. is a mess ruled by a maniacal narcissistic Marxist and opposed by a globalist political party which would sell your mother into slavery to get a new bridge for swamp rats in their district. The civil war in Syria continues unabated. North Korea can lob objects into the atmosphere with the trajectory of “God only knows” and hopefully one day they do not get lucky with something over the U.S.   Oh, and did…

12/21 8 P.M. ET – The 3 Hour Final Voice of Galt Broadcast

December 21, 2012 05:05 ET By John Galt     Tonight I must say that parting is such sweet sorrow. It is time for this cowboy to ride off into the sunset and spend more time writing at this website and more importantly prepare my family for the acceleration of the collapse. It has been a good run, starting with my time on Steve Quayle’s program many years ago until this moment where with the blessings of all my listeners who allowed me into their homes to share the news of…

Gold will move $500 Per Ounce Per Major City

  by John Galt November 14, 2012 20:00 ET   I may not be able to predict political outcomes but I can smell a major move in precious metals and geopolitical conflict a mile away. At this point in time, it is only logical to observe the situation in the Middle East and the soon to begin ground war in the Gaza Strip and start to extrapolate the potential move in precious metals.   To begin this story, I wish to observe the “bear” market period of the past year in…

Does World War III Start on September 11, 2012 ?

  by John Galt September 3, 2012 21:15 ET       One week from today the discussion of the average American citizen and businessman COULD switch from the results of the Democratic National Convention and the first weekend of the National Football League results to a horrific realization that the world has once again stepped beyond the precipice and into a new era of complete and total suicidal conflict.   Almost exactly eleven years after the attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11/01.   There are some prophecy experts, web…


June 17, 2012 A World in Turmoil

  by John Galt June 17, 2012  08:30 ET   With the news of the last week, some of which I have linked to in this piece, it is amazing when one takes a step back and realizes that we truly are witnessing a world in turmoil. This is how it begins with a lack of U.S. leadership as a vacuum creates opportunity for radicals to create problems worldwide, and of course the biggest black hole in the world is in Washington, D.C. where the word “leadership” is a joke. Each…


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…


06.03.12 Middle East Market Update: Israel down 2%, Saudi Flat, Others down 1-2%

  by John Galt June 3, 2012 07:50 ET   Here we go again. With the Saudi market bouncing back into a positive move for the day, albeit small (0.34%) and looking to close relatively flat there was some hope that the markets might recover in the Middle East to put a floor under U.S. collapse on Friday. Unfortunately the rest of the region is down but not as bad as the TASI yesterday so it would appear everyone is waiting to see what Asia does, especially since the U.K. is…


Saudi TASI Stock Market Plummets after Dismal Friday on Wall Street

  by John Galt June 2, 2012 14:00 ET   For some reason, I don’t think the Royals wanted to follow the lead of the U.S. and its inept leadership in the financial markets like this:   No, my readers are not staring at a misprint, the Saudi Arabian TASI collapsed 4.22% in its Saturday session. The implosion in U.S. equities on Friday apparently has angered the camels of the Kingdom and based on the opening 5 minutes of trading started a stampede into safety. If this rolls into the Sunday…


4.8.12 Middle East Markets: Mixed but generally Down

by John Galt April 8, 2012 11:00 ET The anticipation building up for the open of U.S. futures tonight is highlighted by the action in the Israeli and Arab markets which were open for trading today. In lieu of the non-farm payroll data, the theory is that there will be a decent sized plunge at the open of the US markets. The Saudi market probably illustrates the pattern the S&P 500 and DJIA will probably take; a sharp dive at the open with an afternoon recovery as the Saudi TASI did…


And another Domino begins to fall during the Islamist Winter: Kuwait

by John Galt February 5, 2012 08:40 ET The United States citizenry continues to enjoy this bubble of disbelief, told repeatedly that the threats of the Arab Spring uprisings are overblown and that the concerns expressed are rantings of anti-Obama and anti-Democracy forces. Unfortunately for one of the most inept State Department regimes in U.S. history, the Arab Spring did in fact give way to an Islamist Winter and the dominoes have been falling as feared, one nation at a time. Kuwait joins this list of nations which are enduring a…


JohnGaltFLA.com Predictions for 2012

JohnGaltFLA Predictions for 2012   By John Galt January 1, 2012 – 17:00 ET I. Geopolitical Predictions          1. The United States constructs a new large military base in Columbia near the Venezuelan border in anticipation of the collapse of the Chavez regime. The new focus on South America is seen as a desire to refocus American foreign policy as the Middle East rejects any further interference from the United States. Columbia welcomes the action as it intertwines the U.S. into their internal conflicts and guarantees economic cooperation as their oil…

Islamist Winter Update#3: Stories the Mainstream Will Ignore from Central Asia and the MENA Region

By John Galt December 18, 2011 – 20:15 ET As Bahrain and Egypt are getting scant notice beyond some of the cable news outlets in the U.S., there are other regions roiling with protests and riots which will impact not just the geopolitical picture, but economic future of the West in the year ahead. Thus I thought some alerts as to what just might be coming is worthy of reporting. First from Reuters, a story today that could indicate that all of the plans of the West, especially Europe and even…


Islamist Winter Update#2: Several Injured in Bahrain, Residents Tire of Protests

By John Galt December 17, 2011 – 23:45 ET When the nation of Saudi Arabia insisted the GCC invade Bahrain to crush the Shiite protests, the West went back to sleep and assumed the discontent was pacified or stifled and this strategic tiny nation in the Persian Gulf would not reappear in the news cycle. Unfortunately for the House of Saud, that is not the case as this story from Al-Jazeera explains: ‘Several injured’ in Bahrain clashes Excerpt: Bahraini police have clashed with anti-government protesters, a day after rights activists said…


The Islamist Winter begins to assert itself in North Africa

By John Galt December 4, 2011 – 21:45 ET Two stories from Reuter’s African news wire tells the tale of trouble that so many of us warned would be a result of these “popular” uprisings. The first story is straight out of the conflict of cultures under way in the nation of Tunisia: Islamists and secularists in Tunisia stand-off Last I checked, from this particular blog, all I can say is: But hey, who am I to say that? Oh yes, that guy who warned all the num-nuts who claimed that…


12.04 Nothingburger of the Weekend: A Drone is gone, so what? (UPDATED)

By John Galt December 4, 2011 – 16:45 ET While the mainstream media and blogosphere searches desperately for the “oh my God we are all going to die” story of the day, the reality of the story behind the alleged shooting down of the drone is somewhat more overblown than the usual hysterical rantings of the Iranian regime. Reality? This is not the first drone shot down, and it will not be the last. The reason it is a big deal is not that the Iranian media and Western mainstream media…


The Story the White House won’t discuss: Fighting breaking out between rival Libyan Rebel Militias

By John Galt November 13, 2011 – 09:30 ET (UPDATED 15:40 ET Nov. 13) As the Arab Spring devolved into the Islamist Autumn, warnings were issued on these pages and at many other blogs and news sources about the problems with the so-called rebellions within Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia along with ongoing conflicts throughout the MENA region. Now the White House is starting to worry because the success of the revolution in Libya is showing signs of fraying as yesterday two members of rebel militias were killed in fighting near a…


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…

Saudi Markets down 5.46% Today but the real show is Sunday

By John Galt August 6, 2011 I wouldn’t get too excited about today’s 5.46% drop in the TASI (Tadawul Stock Exchange) in Saudi Arabia as they are the largest holder of US Treasuries in the region. Sunday, when many of the markets who have been closed due to Ramadan, will re-open and that will be the true  measure of the reaction to the S&P ratings action. In the mean time, here are some pretty charts now that the Saudi markets are closed including a wild chart of “gainers” which might be…


The NY Times Finally Gets it on Iraq: The Situation is Dire

By John Galt July 30, 2011 The New York Times is breaking what will be the most under reported story of the weekend thanks to the manufactured crisis in Washington in the Sunday print edition. The United States has been falsely claiming under the pretense of political advancement via two Presidents that the Iraqi situation has been stabilized and victory achieved. Reality on the ground, along with the dictates of the news from nations and media outside the sphere of our mainstream propaganda influence, are telling a tale of total anarchy…


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…

Iran says they are Ready to close the Straits of Hormuz

  By John Galt July 5, 2011 The story from the newspaper Emirates 24/7 via AFP should be worthy of a little attention and should be a cause for concern as things heat up in the Middle East: Iran ready to close Strait of Hormuz: General Published Monday, July 04, 2011 Iran is ready if threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz to ships linking the Gulf to international markets, Revolutionary Guards commander General Mohammad Ali Jafari told Mehr news agency on Monday. “In light of the strategic position of the…

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…

BREAKING NEWS: Jordan’s King Abdullah II Motorcade Attacked

By John Galt June 13, 2011 This is a major escalation by the Islamist movement in the country of Jordan and a slap in the face to pro-Western allies like Saudi Arabia and the other nations of the region. Read the full story from Al-Arabiyah here: Jordan King’s motorcade attacked with stones and empty bottles in southern city I wonder if the House of Saud will spend $72,000 per citizen in Jordan now to keep its northern border secure…..

Israel Apparently bombed Syrian Nuke Site in 2007 per U.N.

By John Galt May 25, 2011 Astonishingly enough, the world is not heaping praise on Israel from preventing a murderous dictator from developing nuclear weapons. I know that seems shocking to the readers of these pages but the IAF may have saved the world from Hezbollah getting their terrorist hands on functioning atomic weapons or at least nuclear material for making dirty bombs. The Obama administration has offered no measurable mainstream commentary on this report although they are playing the “human rights” angle against the Assad regime in Syria. To say…

Terrorists in Pakistan Kill Saudi Diplomat

By John Galt May 16, 2011 The violence in Pakistan has accelerated, first with a grenade attack on the Saudi consulate in Karachi four days ago (read it here at ArabianBusiness.com). Fast forward to the news breaking this morning where per Reuters a Saudi diplomat was just killed in Karachi by a gunman as he was traveling in a car belonging to the consulate. This news may not sound disturbing yet Al Queda has not been extinguished in the Arabian peninsula despite proclamations by the various Sheikdoms and that should give…

A Bank Failure You Won’t Hear About

By John Galt May 16, 2011 For once the FDIC isn’t behind a bank failure and seizure. Of course for them to be involved in actions in Dubai would be interesting although not shocking. Dubai Bank which is part of the troubled Dubai Holdings along with Emaar Properties, another troubled concern. While the United States sits in blissful ignorance of what is happening overseas as these institutions begin to fail as the lack of cash flow from their U.S. and European holdings starts to impact their viability as ongoing institutions, the…

Is this the Weekend The U.S. Turns Against Israel Fulfilling Zechariah 14?

  By John Galt March 25, 2011 Zechariah 14 1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when…
