Now that the Nobel Prizewinning President Barack Obama—who campaigned for the White House on fervent opposition to two wars—is leading the United States into a third conflict involving the “Religion of Peace,” perhaps this isn’t the best time to bring this up. However, timing has never been my strong suit.
Now that my colleague Porter Stansberry has made national news with his dire "End of America" video, I’m hearing a major question over and over… To paraphrase a hundred emails, the question goes: If you guys are right about the "End of America" prediction and a currency crisis, why on Earth would you recommend investing in U.S.-based stocks?
As Japan faces a long, costly road to recovery, battles continue to rage across the Middle East, the American economy continues to flounder and Democrats are beginning to threaten active violence against their opponents—including death threats against Wisconsin’s governor and legislators and Tea Party leaders who have committed the unpardonable sin of standing up to the Democrat Party’s union thug accomplices.
How quickly our lives can change. On Thursday the discussions were about public sector unions, Charlie Sheen’s public meltdown, the growing instability in the Middle East and Congress’ lip service to meaningful government cuts.

Fast-forward a few years to 1997 when I started communicating that same message for a living.
In the March 7 edition of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, liberal columnist Eugene Kane fired another salvo at the Democrat Party’s target-du-jour, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. In the piece “Scott Walker, Charlie Sheen: In the same boat?” Kane compares Walker to the erstwhile star of the sitcom “Two and Half Men.”
If any remain under the delusion that the government doesn’t work covertly and break its own laws to achieve its own nefarious ends, that delusion should be dispelled once and for all with revelation by a Federal agent that the United States Justice Department ordered agents to sit idly by as weapons were smuggled into Mexico for use by drug cartels and criminal gangs.
On the afternoon of March 2, Arid Uka murdered two American service personnel during an attack at the Frankfurt International Airport. In the days following the attack, German officials identified Uka—who evidently shouted “Allahu Akbar!” as he fired—as a “quickly radicalized” Muslim and a part of a known network of al-Qaida sympathizers.
