Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Strzok, Rosenstein and the Rise of Anarcho-Tyranny

Sam Francis coined the term "Anarcho-tyranny" to describe the state the U.S. and Europe have descended into.  In short, it is where the state works to protect its own and those that control it while bringing the full weight of it down on those that are supposed to be served by it.

Deep State Sideswipes Helsinki Summit with Mueller Indictments

So, imagine my shock, Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted twelve Russian intelligence officers on the eve of a summit between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Record Deficits, Stronger Dollar Equals Record China Trade Deficit

Hope is not The Plan in Geopolitics

Hope is not a plan or a path to the stars.  It is something much more pernicious than that. Surrendering to hope that everything will work out is an abdication of responsibility.  That’s not to say hope is useless, but it is only useful in the presence of determination to change your fate. In geopolitics, … Continue reading Hope is not The Plan in Geopolitics
