Here are two alternative solutions to finance the upcoming Syrian intervention that, in theory, will not increase America’s gargantuan deficits.
As the Western military forces congregate in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea in anticipation of a “limited strike” on Syria, it is time to ask ourselves a simple question: Why?
Admittedly, our options for fighting this massive surveillance state are few. But here are a couple of potential solutions to start the conversation.
As if the Middle East is not already awash in U.S., Chinese, and Russian armaments, the military-industrial complex has sought Congressional permission to send another $2 billion in arms to war-torn Iraq.

Even the most conspiratorial minds among us are perhaps just beginning to scratch the surface…
The struggle between East and West will inevitably explode in the resource-rich Middle East.
The latest allegations of transatlantic espionage conducted by the U.S. against its European “allies” have placed President Barack Obama and the U.S. State Department in the global hot seat.
At least we are safe from those evil “terrorists.” Right?
Geopolitical tensions have created a growing number of current global conflicts that threaten the existing global financial order.
“The USPS is bleeding — losing $3.2 billion in the second quarter of fiscal year 2012 — and its problems require immediate Congressional action.”
With prices currently below $2 and demand growing, U.S. natural gas prices will eventually stabilize at a much higher equilibrium price.
Here’s a round up of the some of the latest shocking numbers detailing the continuing bankruptcy of our nation.

Is FoxNews Really “Looking Out For You?” If you haven’t studied the rise of FoxNews in its influence over the neoconservatives and its manipulation of the evangelical community, it is simply fascinating. We will save that story for another day. Suffice it to say that there has never been a better descriptive phrase than television “programming.” FoxNews Exposed.
Now, as a student of Austrian economics and as a firm believer in the free markets, I am not opposed at all to leveraging one’s talents and abilities to increase wealth. However, doesn’t it seem that our modern day “public servants” may be getting the better end of the deal? After all, they are sent to Washington with a mandate to promote the will of the people. However, America’s politicians often end up serving the wishes of their corporate masters as well as other special interest groups.
Ron Paul’s Presidential Campaign has just released a brand new web ad exposing the serial hypocrisy of corrupt former Speaker, Newt Gingrich entitled: Selling Access.

Jerry gives some brief comments on the Supreme Court’s recent decision to hear a challenge to Obamacare. He also discusses what to expect on this weekend’s FTMWeekly radio show which includes special guests, Peter Schiff, and David Morgan. And what are those strange lines in the Chinese desert?
Economist and author Peter Schiff recently braved a stroll through the loony mob (affectionately referred to as the “Occupy Wall Street” movement by the mainstream media) currently inhabiting Lower Manhattan. He was armed with a video camera and a microphone. There is no need for further comment. Just watch the video for yourself.

Stocks rallied in the final hour of trading on Friday with all three major indexes logging a 10-week high, amid optimism the euro zone would find a solution to its debt crisis. The Dow Jones Industrial Average posted its best week in a month and ended firmly in positive territory for the year. The S&P 500 had its best week since July 2009, while the Nasdaq finished higher for 2011.
Here’s a few stories that caught my eye this week that I wanted to share. Some of these flew under the mainstream media’s radar.
Despite trillions of dollars in stimulus and Washington’s hype over a “recovery”, the economy is still barely growing in most parts of the country.
If you believe that the market is heading lower and that inflation is inevitable, as we do, then it would be wise to re-examine your finances to ensure that they are aligned with your beliefs about the future. Do you own any precious metals? Do you have any exposure to agriculture in your portfolio? How many of the stocks in your portfolio will benefit as the U.S. continues its decline?

This weekend, I ran across this unique presentation that attempts to visualize the U.S. National Debt through stacks of $100 bills.
Friends, you often hear me talk about the fact that America has a debt-based monetary system. But what exactly does that mean? Watch this video to see how money is debt.
What a surprise! After the mainstream media forced you to watch hours upon hours of coverage on the staged debt ceiling “crisis,” Washington somehow found a way to save their own hides, and pull off a “last-minute” debt deal.
Here’s what to expect now…
Washington continues to fail on a debt deal. The simple goal for Washington right now is to pass a deal that will reduce the deficit. Washington leaders only have one incentive: re-election.
This is just a quick post to let all of our subscribers know about some upcoming events this weekend.
Most Americans have no clue that the Federal Reserve is not part of the U.S. Federal government. But even fewer know that they have a machine-gun toting police force as well.
There will be no FTMWeekly Radio show this week as Jerry will be out of the office this weekend. In lieu of our regular weekly program, enjoy this recent interview with Jerry Robinson on Financial Survival Radio.
It helps if you think of the Fed as a drug pusher. Pushers don’t “market” their drugs. Instead, they rely upon the addicts to come crawling back for more. The Fed doesn’t need to push QE3 on the public. This would only bring more attention to its true intentions. Instead, the Fed will let the public demand it.
Stocks are getting hammered today after U.S. companies added fewer employees than forecast in May. Here are some of my random thoughts on the U.S. economic “recovery.”

There are three forces working against your future wealth. Each and every day we wake up, you and I are confronted by these three powerful forces that exist to devour our hard-earned money. Each of these forces are powerful in and of themselves. However, when they are combined, their strength is exponentially increased.
To help understand the coming dollar collapse due to the faltering petrodollar system, I often use an illustration about a hamburger stand. Here it goes…
FTMDaily.com Founder, Jerry Robinson, was recently interviewed about the state of the U.S. economy on Iranian State Television (presstv.ir).
Will the Euro survive? Or will the Euro collapse? There are a lot of questions swirling around the debt-ridden Eurozone. Before I tell you my thoughts, let’s take a brief look at how all of this mess got started.
One chilly Sunday morning, amid the height of the subprime crisis in early 2009, I found my way to a church service in the heart of the Midwest. The church, known as a “megachurch” and one of the largest in the region, was typical of most churches its size.
I must admit that as I sat down to watch the State of the Union address last night, I was more hopeful than usual that the President would at least propose a handful of ideas for effectively reducing our budget deficits and our collective national debt.
A report was released by the World Economic Forum ahead of the organization’s high-profile annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, which is scheduled for next weekend. According to the report the organization is claiming that the global economy will need access to an additional $103 trillion in “credit” to sustain normal economic growth.
