AOC’s terrorist propaganda video

“I’m not here to poo poo you,” Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told 4.8 million followers on a live Instagram broadcast over the weekend.

“I’m not here to say you’re wrong. Or that you’re a bad person. . . I’m not here to shame you.”

She was talking, of course, to people who aren’t particularly fired up about voting for Joe Biden.

But to AOC, not voting for Biden is the worst possible sin.[...] Click here to continue reading

While I was sitting in the ER, I thought of these three other countries with great healthcare

Around 2:30am a few days ago when I was deep asleep, my significant other suddenly shook me awake and asked me to take her to the emergency room.

She told me she was having trouble breathing and her heart was racing, so we immediately hopped in the car and raced to a nearby urgent care clinic.

Fortunately it all turned out fine. But it was my first experience seeing the Puerto Rico medical[...] Click here to continue reading

The new puritans are on the prowl

In the spring of 1692, Giles Corey was 80 years old when his wife was accused of witchcraft.


The entire town was in such a frenzy that even Giles started to believe that his wife might be a witch.


Soon after, another person in the town was accused of witchcraft. Then another. And another. And another.


It wasn’t until Giles Corey himself was accused of being a wizard that he realized the whole thing was[...]

I went to Mount Rushmore… before the Bolsheviks cancel it

After having visited 120+ countries on all seven continents, and dozens of states across the US, it’s a pretty rare event these days that I travel somewhere I’ve never been before.

I’m pretty weak in the South Pacific—I’ve never been to Tahiti or Bora Bora… nor central Africa, like the Democratic Republic of Congo.

But most of the rest of the world I have covered.

Lessons in Social Justice from the 16th century

It was a damp evening in the early 1560s when Walter Kapell was marched through a silent crowd in the town square.

He had just been convicted of heresy by the Inquisition, and he would only have a few more minutes to live.

Kapell was a wealthy man and beloved by the townspeople of his native Diksmuide in modern day Belgium. He reportedly gave much of his wealth away to feed and clothe[...] Click here to continue reading

Germany will pay you to do nothing, but force you to walk your dog

The old joke about the 1990s TV show Seinfeld was that it was a show about nothing. Now it looks like Germany wants to be an economy about nothing.

German University paying scholarships to do nothing


A German university is looking for people it can pay to do nothing. Literally. They want to pay people to refrain from activities.

Anyone can submit proposals on what they pledge to stop doing, for how long, and[...] Click here to continue reading

It’s time to have an honest, rational conversation with your family

When the captain came on the announcement system yesterday morning to introduce himself to passengers, the first thing he said was,

“Ladies and gentlemen, a lot of us have been cooped up and under tremendous stress for the past several months. So the most important thing we can do right now is be kind, patient, and understanding with one another.”

It was an interesting way to start off a flight.

And I[...] Click here to continue reading

It’s time to rethink the Hong Kong dollar

In 221 BC, the 38-year emperor Qin Shi Huang declared total victory against all of his rivals in northern China.

Qin’s ancestors had literally spent centuries invading neighboring states and engaging in complex diplomacy in order to unify China into a single empire.

And Qin Shi Huang was the first Emperor to rule over the unified China that his ancestors had worked so long to build. Talk about having a long-term view.

Once upon a time in Hollywood. . .

When Charlie Chaplin first arrived to Los Angeles in December 1913, the city was still a fairly small oil town… just a fraction of the size of San Francisco.


LA was so underdeveloped that, as Chaplin wrote in his autobiography, wild coyotes frequently roamed around Hollywood and Beverly Hills.


But within a few years the city was booming, and Chaplin had become one of the most famous people in the world.


This is obviously[...]

We were humbled by this feedback from our readers

CNN almost makes it sound like a James Bond movie.


It’s like there’s a tuxedo-clad billionaire straightening his bowtie while boarding his private jet and flying off to his private island… where scantily clad women await him with champagne and caviar.


This is the image that CNN conjures when they talk about “the elite world of investment migration.”


The ‘worlds’ most trusted news source’ recently posted an article on its website about second citizenships. They[...]

Notes from our Sovereign Woman

Today’s Notes from the Field are a little bit different.

This is one of the single biggest threats to the dollar today

In late November 1943, as World War II raged in Europe and the Pacific, leaders of the ‘Big Three’ allied nations-- the United States, United Kingdom, and Soviet Union, held a key strategy meeting in Tehran.


It’s hard to imagine anymore that the United States and Soviet Union were, at least for a time, allies. Many of us grew up in a world where the Cold War dominated, and threat of mutual nuclear annihilation was[...]

Does anyone else find this ironic?


In the age of #MeToo and BLM, the most ‘woke’ political party in the Land of the Free has chosen a guy with multiple sexual misconduct allegations as its presidential nominee; and a lady who locked up countless black people (many for victimless crimes) as its vice presidential nominee?


These are true statements, of course.


Joe Biden was accused of sexual assault a few months ago by a former[...]

Our enemies will tremble at the sight of our diversity and inclusion. . .

Not long ago, the British Army realized that it needed to completely revamp its recruiting campaign.


The younger generation simply wasn’t responding to the Army’s previous ‘Be All You Can Be’ style of advertising. So British leadership changed the recruiting message to keep up with the massive cultural shift that has been sweeping the world.


Their updated campaign focused on-- you guessed it-- diversity and inclusion.


The Army’s new priority was to show off how[...]

Economic prosperity is no longer the priority. Guess what happens next…

Recently I held a live Q&A Zoom call with my friend Peter Schiff, and several dozen members of our Total Access group.


And towards the end of the call, one of our members asked-- what do you think the future looks like for the US, and the West in general?


Peter went off into one of his classic tirades about how the US dollar is doomed because of how much money the central bank is[...]

This second passport comes with free university tuition

I’ve written a lot in the past that there are two lifelong benefits that parents can provide their children, practically from birth.

The first is the gift of a foreign language. Every kid is going to learn his/her parents’ native tongue. 

But giving a child constant exposure to a foreign language from a very young age will help them develop an additional native fluency that will last a lifetime.

It makes an[...] Click here to continue reading

4 countries welcoming the digital nomads during Covid

Life has taken an eerie turn for digital nomads as their favorite cities emptied of tourists and foreigners working remotely.

Tasha Prados arrived in Vietnam in late February, a few weeks before the country closed its borders.

Tasha opted to stay in Vietnam, and rent a house with five other[...] Click here to continue reading

Mommy put us in time-out again

After a few weeks of freedom here in Puerto Rico where people could engage in dangerous, death-defying acts (like going to the gym), our all-knowing, all-powerful governor announced new lockdown rules late last week.

Or as I tell my friends, Mommy put us back in time-out.

This is not unique to Puerto Rico; several states and countries all over the world are imposing new waves of restrictions due to an uptick in Covid[...] Click here to continue reading

This is bigger than Covid. But few people are paying attention.

Most people realize that 2020 has thrust two game-changing trends upon us that will change the world for years to come.

Mortgage rates are effectively negative in the Land of the Free

By the late 200s AD, the economy of ancient Rome was in serious distress.

There was hardly a single year during that entire century without some major crisis-- civil war, barbarian invasion, plague, imperial assassination, political scandal, or economic depression.

It was so bad, in fact, that historians refer to this period as the Crisis of the Third Century. And the Roman economy suffered immeasurably as a result of all the turmoil.

The #1 destination for American expats is still very compelling

I’m an immigrant.

And I’ve been an immigrant for most of my adult life.

Over the past 20+ years, I’ve lived in ten different countries across Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East, and I’ve spent far more time outside my native country (the United States) than in it.

In most cases, whenever I moved to a new country I went through a formal process to obtain legal residency.

What a surprise– there’s a mass exodus out of New York City!

In the 1650s, European rivals like England and France were busy dividing up the New World in North America.

France settled much of modern day Quebec in Canada, and England initially settled colonies in the mid-Atlantic.

The English and French didn’t have much in common, and they were bitter rivals. But one thing they did agree on was their mutual hatred of Jewish people.

This was part of a long tradition in[...] Click here to continue reading

It’s never too late to start

By the summer of 1789, the people of France finally reached their breaking point.

France was the largest, most powerful empire in the world at the time. But their economy had been in ruins for years. Unemployment was high. Inflation had spiraled out of control. And after a very tough winter, many people had starved to death.

Violence, riots, and looting were a common occurrence, and Paris boiled in anger.
