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.

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.

United We Stand... For What? - The Weekend Vigilante May 10, 2014

May 10, 2014

Hello from 30,000 feet over New Mexico,

Things never go as you expect and you can never really understand something unless you have done it yourself.  These are two things that I have come to understand over my lifetime.

Knowing this, I don't know why I still try to imagine what a particular event in the future will be like.  While it is interesting to play over different scenarios of how things will go it is almost completely pointless in the end.  Why?  Because things never go exactly how you expect.  Often they don't go anything like you expect!

Yeah, Let's Make It All About Racism

May 9, 2014

[EDITOR'S NOTE: THE FOLLOWING POST IS BY TDV LATIN AMERICA EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, ADIL ELIAS]

CLIVEN BUNDY

Having the ability to reduce a massive in-your-face land grab to be nothing more than about racism is no ordinary task, it certainly takes a very special type of person to accomplish the mission, a person with no shame, no scruples nor common sense for that matter. In fact you have to be clinically insane or otherwise it wouldn’t even occur to you.

BREAKING: All Out Assault on Libertarians Both Online & On The Streets Continues

May 8, 2014

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

Daily attacks on libertarian sites are not a coincidence. They come just weeks after the mainstream press made much to do about "super flaggers." Yesterday Josie The Outlaw's Facebook page was taken down.  And just a few hours ago Adam Kokesh's page was deleted by Fedbook. When will it stop? And what's behind the madness?

May 7, 2014

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

Everyday your child goes off to government public school his or her life and well-being is in danger.  Nowhere in the world is this truer than in the United States.

But the risks aren't just limited to just the danger of being unable to read and write. I mean literal physical danger. Here are twenty examples why:

More Affordable Than University, Travel Is The Best Teacher

May 6, 2014

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

Forget school. Instead, travel with your kids. And forget college, get them an around-the-world plane ticket and watch them excel above their peers in terms of understanding.

People think it costs a lot of money to take this route and is very difficult, which is funny, considering that school can be way more expensive and the student loans are the most difficult part of all...way more difficult than travel or the classes you're actually paying for. Becoming an indentured servant does not come cheaply.

The Beginning of the End for the Leaders Of The 'Free World'… Humanity Awakens!

May 4, 2014

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

The leaders of the "free world" are on the run. In many cases, they can’t go out and travel due to the risk of being arrested, protested or even having a shoe thrown at them.

In just the past few weeks, First Lady Michelle Obama, Former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and Attorney General Eric Holder have had to cancel appearances due to protests.
