American Soldiers are Brainwashed Beyond Hope

There’s this crazy story over at TPM about Afghan children being handcuffed, taken into custody, and finally shot by their captors.
Karzai, not acting like the puppet he’s supposed to at all, sent a delegation to investigate. Their report is extremely disturbing:
“The delegation concluded that a unit of international forces descended from a plane Sunday night into Ghazi Khan village in Narang district of the eastern province of Kunar and took ten people from three homes, eight of them school students in grades six, nine and ten, one of them a guest, the rest from the same family, and shot [...]

Will the Real Conservatives Please Stand Up

I wrote a paper a few months ago defining what a true conservative really was.  In a nutshell, this is it:
“…true Conservatives are in fact Libertarians, being said that the central tenet of Libertarianism is the principle of individual liberty, furthermore true Conservatives are Constitutionalists, being said that the central tenet of Constitutionalism is to uphold and respect the rule of law set forth in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and thirdly, however, most important in my opinion, is the fact that true Conservatives, in following the tenets of Libertarianism and Constitutionalism, uphold and respect one another’s rights [...]

Stock for the New York Times now costs less than a Sunday paper. Hopefully they’ll be one of the next bubble-borne companies to go bust.

Letter to congress urging support of Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009

The following is a copy of a letter I sent to my Representative, feel free to use it or write your own, this bill needs to get passed ASAP
First I would like to applaud you for voting no on the recent stimulus bill. As a tax-payer I hope that your vote on this was not just one based on party lines and more a vote based on your understanding of the disastrous effects of spending more of ‘our’ money to fix this economic recession. We cannot spend our way out of a situation that was caused by spending.
That said the [...]

My Challenge to You…

So many people are crying about the economy being broken but no one wants to do anything about it. The government spending large amounts of money for public projects is not a long term solution. Sure it might make some short term jobs, but what happens once those contract jobs are done and they need more money to pay the people? We are then right back where we started. No America, if anyone is going to fix this problem it has to be YOU.
Many will cite the federal reserve as the devil behind it all but [...]

At least some people are waking up to what investments are actually intelligent investments. Bullion sales are like never before. $2000 gold by the summer?

Boy, I am right in line with Karen DeCoster on this one: this has got to be one of the dumbest business ideas in history. I’d be awfully suprised to see this place last longer than a few months. There are few examples of the ridiculous, fake boom malinvestment projects as this one.

Yes, yes, Jerome Corsi is a protectionist and many of you might call him paranoid, but he’s done great work in the past and this is quite the legitimate story.  Be afraid, people.  There’s a reason Jim Rogers moved to Singapore.

I’ve been pleased with how my other books have turned out, and I’ve been gratified to learn that people have enjoyed and benefited from them. But this is the first time I’ve actually felt that the message of a book I’ve written has been extremely urgent. I worked day and night so [...]
