Today the world of banking and finance waited with baited breath for the Federal Reserve in the United States to hike... or not to hike... interest rates.

This happens several times each year as the central bank’s Federal Open[...] Click here to continue reading

“If you can keep it…”

On September 17, 1787 on the final day of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin was approached by a woman as he walked out of Independence Hall.

Almost all bankrupt governments eventually realize this. And it’s great for us

Eighteen centuries ago in the year 212 AD, the Roman Empire was in dire financial straits.

Emperor Caracalla had nearly bankrupted the treasury spending lavishly on his personal proclivities, waging pointless wars, and executing some of Rome’s most productive citizens.

We’re talking about a guy who murdered his brother (Geta) in order to become Emperor, and then had Geta’s name stricken from every official record.

Caracalla made it a capital crime for[...] Click here to continue reading

It’s now a “human right” to NOT be offended. Unless you’re the one who’s offended.

In the latest episode of the completely psychotic breakdown of Western values, Canada’s government has just passed a law that champions sexual identity over science.

It’s called C-16, “An Act to Amend the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Criminal Code”.

Both of these codes prohibit discrimination against individuals based on race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, etc.

And this new law includes gender identity in that list.

Great. Nothing wrong with[...] Click here to continue reading

Argentina issues 100-year bond. What could possibly go wrong?

Apparently while I was in the air yesterday flying between Asia and Europe, the financial system proved once again that it believes in magic beans.

The latest absurdity is that the government of Argentina sold $2.75 billion worth of bonds yesterday afternoon.

It’s not strange or unusual for a government to sell bonds; it happens multiple times across the world nearly every single day of the year.

What’s totally insane about yesterday’s[...] Click here to continue reading

Tim Price: “the UK today feels like a very strange, and disturbing, place”

[Editor’s note: This letter was written by Tim Price, frequent Sovereign Man contributor and manager of the VT Price Value Portfolio.]
If you have been voting for politicians who promise to give you goodies at someone else’s expense, then you have no right to complain when they take your money and give it to someone else, including themselves.

Economist Thomas Sowell
It is difficult to know where to begin.

The worst guy on the planet

Jose Rafael Torrealba wins the award for biggest scumbag on the planet today.

Torrealba is a Venezuelan army general who was featured in a leaked audio recording that was just published yesterday.

The recording is of a meeting that took place a few weeks ago in Venezuela in which he and his fellow generals discuss how to keep the civilian population under control.

Torrealba’s solution? Use snipers against his own people.

We got robbed this weekend

It’s true.

Over the weekend at an amazing, closed-door event that we held here in Las Vegas exclusively for our Total Access members, a number of us got robbed.

It happened on Saturday, which was an intense day packed with a dozen Q&A sessions with the CEOs of exciting private businesses in which we all invested.

But at the end of the day, I treated our group to live entertainment by a[...] Click here to continue reading

The “justice” system killed this guy for stealing $14

During the winter of 1796, a Frenchman named Eugene Francois Vidocq was sentenced to eight years of hard labor after being convicted of document forgery.

It was a remarkably harsh punishment for a non-violent crime, especially in Vidocq’s case as there was not even a victim.

Yet this took place during the chaos that ensued after the French Revolution. The scars from the Reign of Terror still remained.

Long sentences were typical,[...] Click here to continue reading
