The Government’s War on Us

In my Straight Talk column two weeks ago I said that Daily Wealth gives more genuinely valuable contrarian investment advice than any other website I know of. That’s still true. But what I should have added is that every once in a while you’ll get some political commentary that is so right-on-the-mark you’ll wish you had said it first. Read this article for one example… 

Internet Searches, New York City, Gold And The Tea Party

*Don’t search for Cameron Diaz. At least, not on the Internet. Turns out cybercriminals love to play on our fascination with stars. According to tech security company McAfee Labs, your chances of getting a computer infection are one in 10 if you click on links for Cameron Diaz. Other names in the “most dangerous” category […]

John Birch Was First Recorded Cold War Death

The first recorded death in the Cold War occurred on Aug. 25, 1945 — one week before VJ Day — when Chinese Communists murdered a Baptist missionary and United States Army Captain named John Birch. Although the U.S. State Department tried to cover up the details of his death, the story was related in the book, The Life of […]

The War at Home

In researching another topic, I stumbled across a column I wrote three years ago. That was back in the days before Personal Liberty Alerts started sending my musings to more than 500,000 people every week. No, in the fall of 2007 I had just 1,000 or 2,000 readers, most of them were probably named Wood. So the column below didn’t reach very many people. Read on to learn about the war at home… 

Internet Post Looks Ahead

As I’m sure you’re aware, there’s an amazing amount of stuff on the Internet. Some is incredible, some is unbelievable (and rightly so); some is horrifying, some is downright silly. And some, like the items below, are anonymous. I don’t know whom to credit for this very clever look ahead, but I think you’ll enjoy […]

The United Nations Moves In

It was 60 years ago this Saturday, on Aug. 21, 1950, that the advocates of one-world government and defenders of murderous tyrannies and corrupt dictators got the world headquarters they had sought for nearly a century. The United Nations moved into its new home along the East River in New York City on land donated […]

What Websites Do You Read?

In response to hundreds of reader inquiries—well, at least three—I’m going to devote this week’s column to describing some of the other websites I read every week. If some in the list below are new to you I hope you’ll check them out. You may find yet another “must read” columnist you’ll want to check out every week… 

Channeling Dr. Seuss

*Dr. Seuss revisited. I wish I knew whom to credit for the following parody, which has been making the rounds on the Internet. Heck, I wish I were clever enough to have written it myself. But I’m not and I can’t find out who did. If you know, please tell me. In the meantime, enjoy […]

Carnegie Gave Away His Fortune To Benefit Others

On Aug. 11, 1919, a remarkable philanthropist and industrialist went to his reward. Andrew Carnegie, the king of steel and architect of the second Industrial Revolution, made the equivalent of many billions of dollars… and then gave it all away. Born in Scotland, Carnegie immigrated to America at the age of 13 and went to […]

How Capitalism Will Save Us

I’d like to take credit for the title of today’s column but I can’t. It comes from my favorite American capitalist, Steve Forbes. It was the title of a speech he gave at the huge gathering of 2,000 stubborn individualists at FreedomFest last month. And it is also, not so coincidentally, the title of his latest book, which I hope you’ll read. Read this article for a lesson on capitalism from Steve Forbes…
