Don’t Ignore these Warnings; Attacks on the Dollar are Accelerating

May 26, 2014

Y2K Didn’t Happen

May 5, 2014

One of the big arguments faced when dealing with the issues we’ve covered in this Blog and our books, Game Plan and Secret Weapon, is that Y2K came and went without disaster.

Is the West Finally Waking up to Reality? Is it Too Late?

April 22, 2014

The Failure of the American Perspective

March 31, 2014

World War may well be underway just as surely as it was on 26 November 1941 when Japanese Admiral Nagumo set sail for Pearl Harbor two weeks before the formal attack.
