Why Everyone Uses the US Dollar

As Doug Casey has correctly noted, the prime directive of any organism—whether it’s an amoeba or a person or a corporation or a government—is to survive. That’s why the US government protects the petrodollar so zealously. It needs the system to survive. World leaders who have challenged the petrodollar recently have ended up dead… Why Everyone Uses the US Dollar… for Now In the 1970s, the US government struck a series of deals with Saudi Arabia, creating the petrodollar system. The US promised to coddle and protect the Saudi kingdom. And, in exchange, Saudi Arabia would use its dominant position … Continue reading

The Pilgrims Rejected Communism

Historically, Thanksgiving has been a feast day during which Americans are called upon to thank the Lord for the many blessings he has bestowed upon us. Richard J. Maybury and Gary Galles both explain the economic lessons to glean from the experience of the Pilgrims and both note that the primary reason for God’s blessing them with relative prosperity after years of famine and hunger was a shift away from socialism and toward private property. In their essays, both authors draw upon William Bradford’s History of Plymouth Plantation to get the story straight from the source. One misconception that is still with us is that the … Continue reading

Kratom: The Safe Natural Pain-Killer

It is no secret that Americans are losing trust in large institutions that were once believed to be beyond reproach. The media, once considered a paragon of integrity, is viewed with cynicism and suspicion. Our former faith in governmental programs and the ‘best and brightest’ has plummeted steadily from doubt into resentment. So it seems politically foolish for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, in the midst of its own opioid crisis, which has wrought hundreds of thousands of deaths, laid waste to the life prospects of millions, and lined the pockets of its unscrupulous partner corporations, to issue a … Continue reading

The Manliness of Card Games

Card games have been around for a long time. They’ve existed in various forms for a millennium, having been invented in the Far East. From there, they came West with trading, and in the 1400s the French solidified the 52-card deck and the four suits — spades, clubs, hearts, and diamonds — that we use today. While different cultures and nations use different sets of cards, that system is the most widely used around the world. For literally centuries now, friends, families, and strangers have convened around bar tops, campfires, and dining room tables to play friendly and perhaps not-so-friendly games of cards. … Continue reading

Hillary Dreams of Being the Planetary Ruler of Earth 2

A bitter Hillary Clinton may have finally just developed a plan that would fulfill her lifelong dream of wielding complete power while simultaneously granting her detractors their lifelong dream of being rid of her.  The plan, apparently hatched in an interview with Now This News, envisions Hillary traveling to an alien planet, Earth 2, where she could rule the non-existent masses with impunity. Unfortunately, this is not a joke…in an interview that starts with the ‘Now This’ anchor declaring that “people joke about Earth 2, where you are president” (a joke that literally no one has ever told), an awkward, giggling Hillary comments … Continue reading

For Goodness Sake, Let Boys Be Boys

I’m a man. There, I’ve said it. At the risk of offending the world’s increasing army of hypersensitive PC-crazed snowflakes, I am proudly and unapologetically identifying as a male. I realise that for some people, this admission alone is currently tantamount to having me fired, arrested and possibly publicly executed. Think I’m being ridiculous? Think again. Last night, popular US Teen Vogue writer Emily Lindin tweeted this to her 22,000 followers: ‘Here’s an unpopular opinion. I’m not actually at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations.’ Buy Silver at Discounted Prices So yes, for … Continue reading

JFK Files Reveal US Planned To Buy Soviet Planes

The recently released batch of files related to the Kennedy assassination includes a curious document revealing secret plans by the US government to purchase or build Soviet aircraft for the purpose of staging false flag attacks on the US or its allies, thus giving Washington the pretext it needed to go to war with Moscow or its allies. According to the partially declassified document, a March 22, 1962 meeting attended by the Special Group Augmented (SGA), a high-level Kennedy administration committee charged with overthrowing the Cuban government, included a discussion on the different possibilities for obtaining Soviet planes. The SGA group, which formally included Attorney General … Continue reading
