President Obama Blinks And Will Not Use U.S. Troops in Syria

by John Galt October 15, 2016 09:15 ET There was great speculation leading into yesterday’s meeting of the White House National Security team that President Obama might push for using United States military assets against Bashir al-Assad’s forces around Aleppo and thus potentially killing or coming into direct confrontation with the Russian military. Unfortunately for those who wanted to see the big test of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile against the USAF or Russian pilots actually dogfighting with American counterparts, that thankfully will have to wait for another day. From the White…

Despite Saudi and Russian Bluff, Oil Supply is Still Overwhelming Price

by John Galt October 10, 2016 19:45 ET Despite the recent recovery in oil prices back above $50 per bbl (Brent chart courtesy of NetDania): The problem however is that oil supply is not reflected by the price. The latest results from the International Energy Agency (IEA) through the 2nd quarter of this year shows little if any evidence of a draw down in supply: Then tonight this fascinating story tonight from the UK Express: Something very odd is being hidden in the middle of the Atlantic ocean and Gulf of…

Russia Accused of Moving Nuclear Capable Missiles into Baltic Enclave of Kaliningrad

by John Galt October 7, 2016 18:15 ET IF Western news media and government reports are to be believed, the Russian government just upped the ante in the Cold War v2.0 considerably with this report. From Malta Today: Estonia says Russia is moving nuclear-capable missiles into Kaliningrad Estonian officials have said that Russia appears to be moving powerful, nuclear capable missiles into Kaliningrad, a Russian outpost province sandwiched between Poland and Lithuania along the Baltic coast.

Russia Considering Return to Military Bases in Cuba, Vietnam, and Other Countries

by John Galt October 7, 2016 05:25 ET As the United States and some NATO members begin the march to World War 3 with Russia, the bear is not sitting idly by taking these threats without considering a response. Currently Russia has bases in Armenia, Georgia, Syria, along with a logistics resupply base in Vietnam. This story below from ITAR-TASS however indicates that there is serious consideration to expand where Russian soldiers will be based around the world as the Cold War returns to reality. Russian Defense Ministry may return to…

Syria War Update: Videos of the Ground Assault on Aleppo

by John Galt October 3, 2016 21:15 ET In what can only be called a rare occurrence in modern warfare, a major assault by a large army is under way inside of a major city. In recent history, outside of Gulf War II, there have been few incursions into major cities and instead, bypassing and surrounding them has been the tactic of the day. However, Bashia al-Assad has no choice but to recapture the second largest city of Aleppo in its entirety to demonstrate he has control of what is left…

Look for Russia to Impose a No-Fly Zone for U.S. Forces over Syria

by John Galt September 17, 2016 18:15 ET Over a year ago I published a map where I thought Russia might impose a so-called “No-Fly Zone” over parts of Syria to block pro-U.S. coalition aircraft from operating. That was on September 9, 2015: That zone is no longer relevant after today. The Russian Federation, despite what the morons in D.C. thinks, does not like to be humiliated nor lied to and the United States under President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have betrayed President Vladimir Putin for the last…


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…


Did Europe Just Witness an August 1939 Von Ribbentrop Moment?

by John Galt August 16, 2016 04:00 ET On August 23, 1939, the Foreign Ministers of Germany and Russia, Ribbentrop and Molotov, signed an extensive non-aggression pact which resulted in the future de facto division of Poland and surrender of all German claims to the Baltic states and some Romanian border territories in exchange for Germany having a free hand to deal with what they called the “Polish Problem” of that moment in history. Nine days later the world was introduced to Blitzkrieg, total war, and an overwhelming modern invasion of…


Russia Ups the Ante and Deploys Strategic Bombers to Base in Iran (Video)

by John Galt August 15, 2016 20:45 ET The story from Al-Masdar News is a stunner: Russia deploys jets at Iranian Airbase to combat insurgents in Syria By Chris Tomson 15/08/2016 Al-Masdar News has obtained exclusive photos of Russian warplanes being deployed to the Hamedan Air Base in western Iran.

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…

by John Galt August 14, 2016 22:20 ET The following information is from the DC Leaks organization and their hack of the George Soros OSI(Open Societies Initiatives) and various foundations which front for his operations.

Some Disturbing Pieces of Intel Possibly Relating to Upcoming Russian-Ukraine War

by John Galt August 10, 2016 17:50 ET I don’t know if this is any indication of something wicked this way coming but this maritime traffic map indicated in the embedded Tweet seems to indicate a massive increase in supplies to Kerch in the Crimea which is the primary Russian military base on the east side of the Crimean Peninsula.

The Propaganda War Cranks up as Radio Free Europe warns of Return to Full Scale War in Ukraine

by John Galt August 10, 2016 05:30 ET IF there is not a larger signal that the Ukrainian government is getting ready to start a late summer offensive in the Donbass region, I don’t know what there is. First there has been a dramatic increase in artillery attacks along the cease-fire line throughout the region, especially to the northeast and south of Donetsk. Then there was the assassination attempt on the head of the separtist Lugansk Republic a few weeks ago. Next there has been a large buildup of Ukrainian armor…


08.07 Russia-Ukraine SITREP: Russian Military Buildup on Ukraine Border

by John Galt August 7, 2016 16:10 ET The headline and story from Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty is consistent with what appears to be a buildup to a confrontation in the Southern Ukraine before the autumn rainy season begins: Russian Military Hardware Sighted Along Northern Crimea Border (excerpt) Crimean Tatar activists have reported armed checkpoints being erected at scattered sites around the Russian-occupied peninsula, and unusually large concentrations of Russian hardware in northern regions. Ukraine-s border guard service, meanwhile, reported that Russian authorities had blocked all road entry to the Black…


November 12, 2016 WW3: Over There, Over There

by John Galt July 30, 2016 23:30 ET Ah yes, the joys of war in Europe. Think it can not happen again? This fictional account is to remind everyone just how close America and NATO are to engaging in a conflict it is neither ready for nor desires. While we brag about our whiz-bang technological advantage, there is a difference between starting a conflict with Russia and finishing it conventionally on their territory. Many a nation have tried to conquer the Russians and many have failed. Without the American public being…


Wikileaks, Hillary, and Russia: Revenge is a Dish Best Served Cold

by John Galt July 29, 2016 05:00 ET The mega-circus known as the Democrat National Convention is concluding in Philadelphia, but the concern of all of its major leadership will not be seen unless this next release indicates what most of America already knows: The Clinton family is the most corrupt, un-indicted crime family in America next to White Bulger until the FBI finally went after his gang. Hillary Clinton’s problem however is not as easy as a bimbo eruption or weak participant in one of their exercises of illegality which…

Shortwave Radio Still Matters Part 2: North Korea Resumes Spy Numbers Broadcast

by John Galt July 20, 2016 19:00 ET Last week it was the allegedly phony coup in Turkey. Fast forward to this week and here we area gain, with the old Spy Number station making a comeback in North Korea, 16 years after the allegedly “Cold War” ended between North and South Korea.

November 10, 2016 World War 3: “Remember the Maine”

by John Galt July 8, 2016 05:00 ET The following is a fictional blovel written in the same style as my last one, “The Day the Dollar Died.” Why this subject matter my readers might ask, and not a follow up to the economic survivalist fiction as before? Currently there is huge speculation that President Obama is doing everything in his power to tweak and provoke the Russian and Chinese dictatorships into taking offensive actions to justify a short conflict by the American regime for either profit or to stay in…


America’s Beloved USMC Goes 100% PC with Gender Neutral Terminology

by John Galt June 28, 2016 19:45 ET Sigh. Poor America. Our beloved United States Marine Corps has become a joke. First the panic as women failed to pass the tests to qualify for combat at a frightening 85.7% failure rate. Thus the bureaucrats are considering lowering the standards, like they did for the women who passed the US Ranger course by reducing the difficulty level to accommodate those who can not pass real time stringent requirements. Then today, the phrase “infantryman” died a politically correct death because after all, that…


06.18 23:00 ET – Ukraine Civil War: Heavy Fighting in Mariupol and Donetsk Tonight (VIDEO)

by John Galt June 18, 2016 23:00 ET The video above is purported to be a firefight between pro-Russian rebels and Ukrainian forces outside of Donetsk earlier this evening. Keep in mind that it is very difficult to verify the validity of many reports posted on the internet from this region but if confirmed along with the other breaking news of the evening, then the situation is deteriorating inside the Ukraine conflict as quickly as it is along the NATO-Russian border in the West of Russia. Tonight appears to be the…


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…


Did Russia Just Order a Full Mobilization of its Armed Forces for War?

by John Galt June 14, 2016 15:35 ET The news this week has been moving hot and fast in Eastern Europe as the US Military via NATO has announced that 4 battalions will be re-positioned in Estonai, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland to counter “Russian aggression” even though there has been no direct evidence presented of an impending Russian invasion of any NATO nation. CNN covered this story yesterday: NATO chief: 4 battalions to Eastern Europe amid tensions with Russia Excerpted: Each of the battalions is expected to consist of up to…


If True, the World has gone Nuts: Israel and Russia Agree to Joint Military Exercises

by John Galt June 13, 2016 19:30 ET *** GRANTED THIS IS FROM DEBKA *** So take this story with a huge grain of salt. However during the meetings in Moscow, the Russian language press did mention that the Netanyahu and Putin agreed to expanded military cooperation in the Middle East to prevent Hezbollah from threatening or attacking Israel (who have now been ordered by Iran to focus on Saudi Arabia). From DEBKAfile on June 10th: First ever Israeli-Russian war game is coming Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister…


The War That isn’t Reported Continues: 9 Ukrainian Soldiers Killed, 19 Wounded on Friday

by John Galt June 12, 2016 16:35 ET The war that is not going to be reported in the Western media continues with casualties and destruction on both sides becoming quite commonplace as artillery exchanges and small arms fire intensifies. The story below demonstrates that the OSCE oversight of the Minsk Agreements is nothing more than a figurehead joke designed to support a pro-NATO/EU version of events ignoring the plight of citizens near the front lines in the Donbass region. From DNI News on Saturday: 9 Ukrainian security officers killed, 19…


Ukraine Continues to Attack Donbass while Europe Ignores Ceasefire Violations (VIDEO)

by John Galt June 1, 2016 19:45 Peace in our time? Hardly. According to reports from the pro-Russian governments in the Donbass, there were over 2,000 ceasefire violations over the past weekend. The American response? Silence. NATO’s response? Silence. European Union/OSCE’s response? Silence. Small wonder that Vladimir Putin is building up forces in the West of Russia and around the Ukraine in anticipation of another invasion by the Ukrainian forces and their pro-fascist allies into ethnic Russian areas. This is what a ceasefire looks like according to the OSCE monitoring group…


Will Russia and the Ukraine go to War this Weekend?

by John Galt May 5, 2016 05:30 ET The ongoing small unit skirmishes along the line of contact in the Lugansk and Donetsk Republics has been ongoing since the first implementation of the Minsk accords. The violations are being reported to the OSCE monitors but little if any action has been taken against either side as a result. According the DNR yesterday for example, there were 60 violations including artillery and mortar attacks along with small unit engagements in Zaitsevo, Yasinovataya, Ozeryanovka, Zheleznaya Balka, Sakhanka and the hotly contested area of…


Obama’s Military Reminds Me of the Jimmy Carter Era (Video)

by John Galt April 25, 2016 18:00ET First we focused on making sure gays were welcome in the military. Obama made sure to make a big deal about this. Unfortunately for his royal ignorance, they have always served but no one cared because 99% of the soldiers kept their sexuality to themselves unless it was the usual bullshit scuttelbutt about finding that nice piece of ass in town during liberty. Now even that conversation has taken on new meaning. Then it was to force the military to be more accommodating to…


Obama to Send 250 More Troops into Undeclared Syrian War

by John Galt April 24, 2016 21:30 ET The United States has declared war on the government of Syria but someone forgot to tell the American people and U.S. Constitution. In May of 2013 I highlighted the games Obama started playing with the Saudis over the Syrian Civil War and the sudden rush of “contributions” some of which appeared to originate from GCC nations. Fast forward to this weekend where suddenly after meeting with King Salman in Saudi Arabia, Obama is set to increase the U.S. involvement in the conflict which…


04.17 DeathCamelBurger Edition: Saudis Choke in Doha, WTI Crashes below $40 on the Open, Stock Futures Falling

by John Galt April 17, 2016 19:15ET Apparently the House of Saud would rather eat their rides than finance them as today’s Doha, Qatar OPEC meeting ended in discord and disaster for the now flailing for a reason to exist organization. The results? WTI-Crude opened up down over 6% along with Brent and created a huge disaster for the longs that enjoyed the short covering rally of the past few weeks (Charts courtesy of Finviz.com/prices delayed 15 mins):   Note: WTI rolled over to the June 2016 contract starting today; on…
