Anti-Americanism from abroad would not be such a problem if Americans were united in standing up for their own country. But in this country itself, there are those who blame America for most of the evils in the world. On the political left, many fault the United States for a history of slavery, and for continuing inequality and racism. Even on the right, traditionally the home of patriotism, we hear influential figures say that America has become so decadent that we are “slouching towards Gomorrah.”
But the critics are wrong about America, because they are missing the big picture. In their indignation over the sins of America, they ignore what is unique and good about American civilization. Read More
It is 10pm, September 14, 2015 and I am visiting family in Sydney, Australia. Something just happened 15 minutes ago that would, with good reason, shock any American.
Australia's prime minister, Tony Abbot, was challenged by someone in his own liberal party, Malcolm Turnbull, to become the new prime minister today. Within 8 hours of Turnbull announcing his challenge, and a vote of 100 government people, the entire country of Australia just got saddled with a new prime minister they didn't elect. Read More
Here in Australia, everything is outrageously expensive!! Way more than even Europe. Especially housing. Yesterday, the Brit and I had lunch at a sweet, cozy spot with a burning fire in a fireplace in Manly Beach overlooking the ocean. Our server was an American and I immediately started chatting him up about why he was in Australia and his experiences here. Read More
Has your stock portfolio just had a scary roller coaster dip? Feel like you might have a heart attack with last week's perpetual drops in the stock market?
Today, the S&P 500 was halted for the first time in history. The DOW saw the biggest intraday drop EVER. Stocks are falling all over the world. It's frightening stuff if you have a significant portion of your savings and investments in the stock market. Who is everyone blaming for this? China, of course. Especially mainstream media.
But China is not to blame. The Federal Reserve is to blame. Read More
A disastrous three million gallon toxic mining waste spill into Colorado's Animas River, caused by the Environmental Protection Agency, is proving to Americans, yet again, that when the government is the culprit, no one is held accountable. Their actions show that government thinks so highly of itself and it is not subject to the same laws that the rest of us are.
“If a mining operator or other private business caused the spill to occur, the EPA would be all over them…the EPA admits fault and, as such, must be accountable and held to the same standard.” Read More
My respect and applause goes out to Jesse Bartholomew, a baker, who happens to be gay, had the courage to stand up and tell fellow gays the truth about their appalling behavior in this 2 minute video.
Jesse expresses his frustration with fellow gays about the fact that they are punishing Christian bakers who have declined to bake their wedding cakes.
He has a really wonderful point. WHY would you even want someone who has a different view than you working on such a personal part of your wedding? There are so many bakers to go to, why focus on the one that has religious views that conflict with yours?
Because this isn't about cake. This isn't about hurt feelings. This is about ego. And punishing. Read More
Want to know what happens if you try to order a wedding cake for a gay wedding from a Muslim bakery?
Yeah, I did too!
Which is why I watched and posted this great video by Steve Crowder showing Muslims exercising their freedom of religion. And gays and liberals are NOT MAKING A STINK ABOUT IT! The hypocrisy is colossal. Read More
It's been a few weeks since the Supreme Court ruled for legalizing gay marriage in all 50 states. This is not a 'done and move on' deal. The repercussions from this decision will continue to be felt in America's future in ways most of us haven't considered.
This has nothing to do with not wanting equality for people, but everything to do with one group of people wanting something and violating the moral, just and lawful way of achieving it.
Unfortunately, many people seem to be ignoring the fact that the Obergefell vs. Hodges ruling violated the principles of America's judicial system, our religious liberties, our social structures, and our legal system.
Here are 3 important reasons why I think the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling hurts America's integrity and deteriorates our freedoms. Read More
Do you know why we celebrate July 4th?
Too many Americans say no. And it's a darn shame because it's such an important fact in our history. In fact, a majority of Americans don't know a lot of important facts in American history.
Watch Mark Dice talk with California beach goers about the 4th of July. He, embarrassingly, finds that many Americans simply don't know WHY we celebrate the 4th of July or what country we declared independence from. Read More
I am sitting in one of the freest nations in the world right now. I'm sipping my coffee in my office overlooking a beautiful swimming pool in a landscaped garden of flowers and palm trees. High rise buildings, subway stations, and corporate developments are going up everywhere around me because of the abundance of capital in the country. Porsches, Bentleys, Mercedes, and any other car brand that could possibly make you salivate zooms by on the road below. The buzz of activity is everywhere and loads of people are hurrying to lunch before heading back to work. The unemployment rate is 1.9%. Taxes are some of the lowest in the world. Anywhere from 0-20% Read More
“There comes a time in the history of nations when fear and complacency allow power to accumulate and liberty and privacy to suffer,” said presidential candidate Rand Paul. He went on, “that time is now, and I will not let the Patriot Act, the most unpatriotic of acts, go unchallenged.”
As I write this, Senator Rand Paul has taken to the Senate floor today in a filibuster to protest the renewal of the Patriot Act. The Patriot Act is a Bush administration-era law that enables government surveillance on everyday Americans. He wants the government to "stop spying on innocent Americans" in the name of "safety."

You are unemployed for one really basic, simple, clear reason that is never talked about in our culture. There is a big thing in the room that no one wants to bring up. Watch to find out! Read More
DEMOCRACY ~ You think you know this word, right? This word is misused more than I breathe air. Especially this sentence: “America is a democracy.” This is the most commonly incorrect statement that I have come across in the world. Everywhere I have traveled, from England to Singapore to Costa Rica and back to America, I find countless people mistakenly thinking that America is a democracy. They. Are. Wrong.
Are you thinking, “Wait a minute. I thought America was a democracy!”?
No. Read More
Learning this will change your life because it will change the choices you make. We are entering the greatest financial crisis the world has ever known. And the greatest wealth transfer that the world has ever seen will take place with it.
Make sure you're on the right side of that wealth transfer.
Watch it. And then watch it again. I have probably watched it over 20 times now and I'm still watching it.
What an awesome way to show how the Federal Reserve creates "money" out of thin air. And what that does to your money and your standard of living. Read More
