Each Friday we highlight a number of important, and often bizarre stories from around the world that my team and I are closely following:


Cory Booker introduces reparations bill


Get ready for a slippery slope, because because Cory Booker just introduced a reparations bill in Congress.


The 2020 Presidential contender said, “this bill is a way of addressing head-on the persistence of racism, white supremacy, and implicit racial bias in our country... and propose solutions[...]

Netflix’s unbelievable cash burn just got 60% worse

If you’re a big fan of shows like Narcos, Stranger Things, House of Cards, or Orange is the New Black, you might want to think about sending a fruit basket to anyone you know who is a Netflix shareholder.


Netflix reported its quarterly earnings again yesterday afternoon. And, as expected, the company is losing a metric truckload.


According to its own financial statements, Netflix burned nearly half a billion dollars in the last quarter. That’s[...]

Astonishing opportunities in one of the oldest cities in the world

By the time Alexander the Great and his Macedonian army conquered the city of Samarkand in 329 BC, the city had already existed for centuries.


Samarkand had been a prominent, vibrant regional capital in the Persian Empire prior to the Macedonians’ arrival.


And under Alexander the city flourished even more. He declared it one of the most majestic places he had ever been, and the city served as a critical outpost for his conquests in[...]

Even Elizabeth Warren is maximizing her tax deductions

On September 11, 1791, sixteen men disguised themselves as women and waited patiently in a forest outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for the local tax collector.


The tax collector’s name was Robert Johnson. And he was tasked with collecting the new Whiskey Tax that had recently been signed into law.


This was -very- early in US history; the Constitution had only been ratified two years earlier, and George Washington was barely into his first term as[...]

Elizabeth Warren wants to end “beyond a reasonable doubt” for criminal convictions

Each Friday we highlight a number of important, and often bizarre stories from around the world that my team and I are closely following:


Elizabeth Warren wants to destroy centuries of legal standards


To take your freedom requires more evidence than to take your money. For now.

How to take advantage of the best tax deal ever, before it’s too late

You’ve heard me mention Puerto Rico’s amazing tax incentives about a million times by now.

Here I am, living in a beautiful place that’s part of the United States… yet I pay ZERO US federal income tax, only a 4% corporate tax for my businesses and ZERO capital gains and dividends tax.

And this is all perfectly legal.

I’m still a US citizen, but I’m not hiding out from the IRS, nefariously[...] Click here to continue reading

104: Taking matters into your own hands

Last week in its annual report, the US government reported that Social Security’s long-term, unfunded liability now exceeds $50 TRILLION.

Moreover, they state that the Social Security and Medicare trust funds will run out of money in 2034.

This is the government’s own calculation.

Bottom line: The younger you are, the less you should count on Social Security in your retirement plans. You must take matters into your own hands and save[...] Click here to continue reading

New York City just went from Dumb to Dumber…

A few months ago, I wrote to you about how New York City wants to tax people who own second homes there.


They call it a pied-a-terre tax, and the geniuses behind it believe that it will help plug the city’s $1 billion budget shortfall.


Bill de Blasio himself, the mayor of New York City, has voiced his enthusiasm in soaking the rich.


Hedge fund manager Ken Griffin became one of the primary victims of[...]

Four ways that Uncle Sam will respond to its $75 trillion insolvency

Last week I told you that the US government recently reported a negative net worth of MINUS $75 TRILLION.


That’s not a type-o. According to the Treasury Department’s annual financial report for Fiscal Year 2018 (which they just published last week), the US government is hopelessly bankrupt.


Now, I’m not talking about this trying to stoke fear and panic.


Quite the opposite-- I’m hoping that this conversation results in calm optimism. But the point is[...]

The latest Social Justice absurdity…

Each Friday we highlight a number of important, and often bizarre stories from around the world that my team and I are closely following:


What age do you identify as?


It happens way too often here at Sovereign Man… we joke around about the next outlandish demands of Social Justice Warriors. And then it happens.


This time the Journal of Medical Ethics published a paper arguing that if you don’t feel your “chronological” age, you[...]
