Fear is the language of government, and freedom is always the casualty. Politicians are notorious for saying the most preposterous things in order to coax Americans to submit to fear.
Former Federal Reserve official Bill Dudley's recent op-ed calling for the Federal Reserve to implement policies that will damage President Trump's reelection campaign states that such action would be unprecedented.
Those hoping for a US withdrawal from Afghanistan after 18 years of pointless war and a new peace deal with the Taliban are going to be disappointed. According to press reports, the US will be keeping more troops in Afghanistan than it is removing. W
The US Navy's newest aircraft carrier, the USS Gerald Ford, is so over-budget and riddled with errors that it's practically useless. Never is it asked whether we need such a ship for the defense of this country. It is about spending and maintaining s
The Fed is political.
When empires fall, they do not go down gracefully. The collapse is sudden and the consequences are permanent. Like the schoolyard bully who is finally defeated, his former victims and enemies revel in his fall. The US empire is now teetering on such
The US Constitution never granted the federal government authority to create a central bank. The Founders, having lived through hyperinflation themselves, understood that government should never have a printing press at its disposal. But from the ver
The Federal Reserve should not exist. This week, ex-NY Fed President Bill Dudley picked a fight with President Trump, insinuating that the Fed can sink Trump's re-election. Central planning is an absolute failure that has financed the growth of the b
According to a new NBC/WSJ poll, some 70 percent of Americans are as furious with the ruling class as they were in the run-up to Trump's election four years ago. While they feel satisfied with the current state of the economy, they feel Washington an
Whether it's a trade war or military war, or both, there are no real winners. Just scores of losers. President Trump unilaterally launched this unnecessary trade war with China. Congress, as has become tradition in America, was not consulted. Taxes w
The recent mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton have re-ignited efforts to pass "Red Flag" laws, which allow the government to take away a person's guns without due process, and expanded background checks on those wishing to purchase a gun.
The United States has become the poster child for why governments and central banks should never, EVER, be granted a monopoly on creating money. Gold has been the ultimate money for approximately 6,000 years and the U.S. government has proved, withou

The Federal Reserve is the culprit. It creates the bubbles and the unavoidable busts.
Can you imagine the money, that you work so hard for, actually increasing in purchasing power every year? Can you imagine your bills gradually falling over the years, instead of relentlessly rising? Of course you can't! And the reason that you can't
Whether speaking at UC Berkely or BYU, to a black church group or a GOP dinner, his message was always consistent: peace, freedom, sound money, less government power, more personal liberty. Let's hope that message still resonates. Happy Birthday Ro
Stocks fell last week following news that the yield curve on Treasury notes had inverted. This means that a short-term Treasury note was paying higher interest rates than long-term Treasury note. An inverted yield curve is widely seen as a sign of an
Departing Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats sent Congress a letter requesting that several features of the misnamed USA FREEDOM Act be made permanent, allowing the US government to spy in Americans in perpetuity. The Trump Administration wa
No matter where you look, the desire for the Fed to print, Print, PRINT, is intense! The president wants it, the Socialists want it, debtors want it...The consequences of this madness are more than predictable. Great Inflation awaits, and the only th
The US government claim that US sanctions do not affect medicines and humanitarian assistance to Iran is a bold-faced lie. They make the manufacture of medicines in Iran nearly impossible and they make the cost of medicines beyond the reach of Irania
The 2011 US attack on Libya to "save the people" from Gadaffi was an entirely manufactured narrative with Hillary Clinton's weaponized State Department, a chief author of the lies. Libya's population continues to suffer endless war and terrorism from
With a peace agreement between the US and the Taliban nearly completed, will President Trump be able to do what his two predecessors were unable to do - end the US military's 18 year war on Afghanistan? Neocons at home are screaming that we must stay
The Federal Reserve, responding to concerns about the economy and the stock market, and perhaps to criticisms by President Trump, recently changed course on interest rates by cutting its "benchmark" rate from 2.25 percent to two percent.
Trade war with US, Hong Kong protests showing no signs of slowing - is China on the verge of a collapse? If the collapse does come, what next? Are America's fingerprints on the protests, as China claims?
'Central Planning' loses before it even begins. In America, central planning of the economy was cemented into place when the U.S. Congress established the monopolist Federal Reserve in 1913. The seeds were planted then, and they have been bearing rot
Lew Rockwell, founder of The Mises Institute and publisher of the enormously popular LewRockwell.com, joins today's Liberty Report to discuss his upcoming speech at the Ron Paul Institute Washington conference and the importance of Rothbard to antiwa
Turkish president Erdogan has warned the US that an invasion and occupation of Syria's Kurd regions was imminent. Talks are ongoing with US officials to stave off the move, which could see US military personnel in Syria facing off against NATO partne
President Trump announced a full US embargo of Venezuela, with punishment for anyone of any nationality who "supports" the Maduro government. US sanctions are said to have been responsible for 40,000 deaths in the past two years. How many more will d
One day after the Trump Administration announced it was getting out of the Reagan-era INF treaty, the new Pentagon chief said US would be sending missiles once banned by that treaty to Asia. Targeting China. Will an Asian arms race be stabilizing or
Extreme spending ... extreme debt ... extreme welfare ... extreme militarism ... extreme Socialists ... extreme Cronyism ... All at same time! The biggest bubble to ever exist is heading for disaster.
