Is It Time to Restore the Rule of Law to America?
We have long called for non-violent forms of resistance to restore the rule of law in America. We have said for years (and we still proclaim on the right bar of our website):
We are NOT calling for the overthrow of the government. In fact, we are calling for the reinstatement of our government.
We are not calling for lawlessness. We are calling for an end [...]
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says Washington “feels as broken as it did four years ago,” when he took office.
He’s most frustrated by the inability “to change the atmosphere” in the capital “to reflect the decency and common sense of ordinary people” who want leaders to solve problems.

From Porter Stansberry in the S&A Digest:
In today’s Friday Digest… I’ll give you perhaps the clearest example I’ve ever found of the real problems driving our “End of America” theme. And… here’s a first… a detailed explanation of why you shouldn’t buy high-yield bonds right now.

Guess Who’s Almost Out Of Silver
According to Jamie Dimon, he did America a favor when he agreed to take bailout money from taxpayers (and we didn’t even have the decency to thank him). Last week ,we learned that the JP Morgan CEO likes his catastrophe’s predictable, but as Mick Jagger once observed, “You can’t always get what you want.”
So in case you’re wondering who might be stupid enough to [...]
