Almost all of Afghanistan’s economy is supported by foreign aid, most of which comes from the United States. We have a President who is borrowing money from a potentially much larger enemy, China, to finance foreign wars against Islamic countries who hate us.
Who killed the U.S. dollar? This question will be debated by future historians. Already, more people are asking that question than tuned in to find out who shot J.R. on Dallas. The lineup of suspects is long, but it ends with Barack Obama, the triggerman who killed the buck.
If you think the Information Age has advanced the world and is leading to the pursuit of happiness, think again. Now in my 50s, I am convinced technology is killing our spirit and setting us up for a big fall. And while I don’t consider myself a Luddite, my three children might disagree.
In the spring of 1775, silversmith and patriot Paul Revere rode into the cold night to warn that the British were coming. A century and a half later, America helped defeat Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan — two nations bent on world domination and extinguishing individual liberty. The world has changed, and the war at home rages. Geographic borders no longer demarcate the saintly from the sinister.
Despite proclamations of victory by the Administration of President Barack Obama, the death of Osama bin Laden is not like the fall of Berlin in 1945. In itself, killing bin Laden brings no peace. It does ask many unsettling questions about America’s number one ally on the war on terror, Pakistan. It also puts into question America’s ability to even win the war in Afghanistan.

My guess is you would be hard-pressed to find a late-model car, truck or SUV that has anything smaller than a 200 horsepower engine.
In October 2000 I became the editor of Outstanding Investments. In that first issue I told subscribers to buy gold. For 10 and a half years I have not once wavered in my advice. But I have to confess, after having recommended bullion at $284 per ounce a decade ago I have been tempted to tell readers that it is time to take profits.
There are agitated protestors from London to Liberia. War rages in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. Much of the world is becoming violent, and there is no reason to believe North America is immune to this trend. John Myers explains what violence around the world means to President Barack Obama and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.
President Barack Obama is staking America’s future on clean energy while ignoring some simple truths. Two weeks ago in a major policy address, Obama announced that America would continue to pursue green energy solutions from wind, solar, biofuels and nuclear power.
