The Moment of Clarity - The Weekend Vigilante May 17, 2014

May 17, 2014

Hello from Havana, Cuba,

By the time you read this I will likely be back in Acapulco but being in a country with almost no internet access gives me a lot of time to think and write.

Not to mention all the extra time I have where I would normally be out carousing until 5am drinking Cuban rum and getting myself into all manner of interesting situations.

But since I had my moment of clarity three weeks ago today everything has changed.  And, I mean everything.  It has been an almost euphoric experience.  It also has opened up all kinds of new feelings, thoughts and opportunities that have led me through the Cayman Islands and Cuba this week.

I haven't been filled with this much energy in years and the thoughts are overflowing.

Operation American Spring Fails To Restore Republic

May 17, 2014

[Editor's Note: The following post is by TDV Contributor, Christopher Cantwell]

Suppose I said to you “Let’s get 10-30 million people to go down to Washington DC and force Barack Obama out of office!” What would you say? Might sound like a great idea at first, until you realize that I lack the capacity to organize millions of people to travel to the nation’s capitol on a workday. Especially when I predict people will wind up dead and in prison, it’s not exactly the most appealing thing for people to hire babysitters for.

[Editor's Note: The following post is by TDV Editor-in-Chief, Jeff Berwick]

It doesn't happen often, but The New York Times (NYT) has truthfully reported on something recently.

On what did it report? Well, on itself, and how alarmed it is due to its own increasing irrelevance in the face of new sources of information.

Breaking FATCA News: A Semi-Stay of Execution for Americans Assets And The US Dollar

May 14, 2014

[Editor's Note: The following post is by TDV Editor-in-Chief, Jeff Berwick]

The Illegitimate Revenue Agency (IRS) has just announced that the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) has been postponed from July 1, 2014 until January 1, 2016.

This is good news in many ways for both those with assets that they wish to internationalize as well as for the dollar and US banking system itself but in many ways the damage has already been done.

Dr Dre Forgot THIS When He Claimed To Be Hip Hop's First Billionaire

May 13, 2014

[Editor's Note: The following post is by TDV Editor-in-Chief, Jeff Berwick]

In his 1996 hit song "Been There, Done That," Dr. Dre rapped, "I ain't got no time to wait around for illuminati, I gotta make a billion before the year 2-G." Whether or not you believe in the so-called "illuminati," Dr. Dre was hinting at an underlying urgency he felt to strike it rich in a big way before society went down the drain. 14 years after the year 2000 and his last album, Dr. Dre has struck it big again.  But is he a billionaire?

America's #Hashtag Foreign Policy

May 12, 2014

[Editor’s Note: The following post is by TDV contributor, Wendy McElroy]

A foreign policy driven by twitter and celebrity 'selfies' holding signs is an embarrassing disaster. On April 14, 250+ Nigerian schoolgirls were kidnapped by the radical Islamic Boko Haram, which is on America's terrorist list. (Sources vary on the number of girls.) As of May 8, #BringBackOurGirls had been tweeted more than 1.6 million times and by such luminaries as Sean Penn and Angelina Jolie. Apparently that's enough for President Obama to send a team including military advisors into Nigeria.

United We Stand Fest Brings Together Communists & Anarchists: TDV Week in Review, May 11th, 2014

May 11, 2014
 

The drive to Los Angeles from San Diego is quite a simple one. Southern California is merely one big concrete island, one big city...with one catch: the nation's second biggest military base, Camp Pendleton, sits approximately in the southwest of the region.

To get to LA from San Diego, one must travel along Interstate & Defense Highway 5, which is part of the Dwight D Eisenhower National System of Interstate & Defense Highways.
