On this special day for families across America, I want to share the timeless words I’ve shared with readers on past Thanksgivings.
Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.
Trouble no one about his religion.
Respect others in their views and demand that they respect yours.
Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life.
Seek to make your life long and of service to your people.
Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend,
or even a stranger, if in a lonely place.
Show respect to all people, but grovel to none.
When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light,
for your life, for your strength.
Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living.
If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.
Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools
and robs the spirit of its vision.
When your time comes to die,
be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death,
so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time
to live their lives over again in a different way.
Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.
(1768-1813) Shawnee Chief
With warmth, peace and love on this Thanksgiving Day,

Over the course of any given day, I come across far more interesting stories and insights from around the world than I could ever consider commenting on here at Liberty Blitzkrieg. Many of these articles are just as impactful as the stuff I’m able to cover, so I’ve decided to share these via a new post that will be published most days, titled “Liberty Links.”
This will typically be published in the early afternoons EST, and will be updated throughout the day as I come across additional interesting tidbits. As such, I suggest refreshing the post several times a day.
I’d love to hear feedback on the project as it unfolds, and any suggestions on how I can make it better. I plan on publishing the first version tomorrow.

Liberty Blitzkrieg was launched two and a half years ago on April 19th, 2012, the day after the 237th anniversary of Paul Revere’s ride. It has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, and if not for the tremendous support of my faithful readers, would not have been possible. The interest my work has generated, the thoughtful email messages of encouragement, the passionate comments, and of course the generous and entirely voluntary Bitcoin donations has touched me and inspired me to improve my writing and content generation every single day.
When I first started out, I figured maybe a few hundred people would come and visit per day. As 2014 comes to a close, those expectations have been exceeded greatly, with Liberty Blitzkrieg averaging 65,000 unique visitors and 123,000 page views per month so far this year. What can I say except: Thank You!
My philosophy on writing has always been, and continues to be, that I’d prefer to write one or two powerful and incisive posts per day, rather than five or six watered down articles. As such, I feel my current capacity for daily content is more or less maxed out. This leaves me with a great deal of topics left unaddressed, partly due to personal time constraints, but also because I lack the expertise and interest to cover certain subjects. Enter Contributors.

I’m extremely pleased to formally announce my participation in what is sure to be an amazing conference in Dallas the weekend of June 28-29. The event has been set up by Kerry Lutz and Robert Ian and the lineup is extraordinary, including Martin Armstrong, Bill Murphy of GATA, David Morgan, Jeff Berwick, myself and many more. The range of opinions and insights to be presented will be varied, but what unites us all is a passion for liberty and a steadfast dedication toward advancing the cause of freedom in these United States and beyond. Not only will you be inspired by the talks, but it will be a great opportunity to connect in person and network. I hope to see you all there!

In Liberty as always,
In 1970, Salvador Allende became the first Marxist elected President in a Latin American country. That country was Chile – the country of my mother’s birth. Upon election, Allende went on a massive nationalization and land seizure campaign as a means to accomplish his economic, social and political ends. My mother was far from wealthy, but she could see the writing on the wall and fled Chile to the United States the following year. It was a wise move, as less than two years later August Pinochet took over in a military coup and installed a 20 year dictatorship.
The United States provided a wonderful refuge for my mother and the country embraced her and gave her and her soon to be family wonderful opportunities. While certainly far from perfect, the United States provided her the economic and political freedom she could never have had in Chile.
In a sad irony, Chile is now ranked well above the United States in economic freedom. See this study from the Heritage Foundation. Within her lifetime, the country of her birth has transformed from a dictatorship to more “free” than the United States. This is beyond tragic and must be reversed immediately. The banker coup of 2008 must never be forgotten. We still need to deal with all of the criminals in the banking, corporate and political complex that looted this nation and have put us on this path of decline. Until we clean out this trash, we will never recover.
All of this and much more in my latest interview with Max Keiser. Enjoy!
Oh and the show is also dubbed in Spanish if you are so inclined. En espanol here!
This is my first interview with Jason Burack of Wall Street for Main Street. In this thirty minute podcast, I really dissect the Keynesian matrix of insanity. As I said on twitter earlier today, what we have is not Socialism or Capitalism, it is Ponzism. Enjoy!
Since nothing else moves the markets these days besides the utterances of insane Central Planners armed with printing presses, I figured it would be a good idea to preview tomorrow’s Fed decision. I find the setup particularly interesting since the consensus seems to be expecting QE3 and I do not. Have a watch!
So I finally decided to record a podcast. It is something I have contemplated for a while and I finally got around to it. The reason why I did it today is probably a combination of the boredom in the markets but also tomorrow’s Jackson Hole spectacle. Viewer feedback would be really helpful as I would want to know if people find the podcast format useful and enjoyable.
I’m pleased to post my first interview on Capital Account, a show I’ve seen many times and have always thoroughly enjoyed. This was the first time I’ve done a live format and I’m very happy with the way it came out. Thanks to Lauren, Demetri and everyone else on the team in D.C. and New York for making it happen.
I hope you enjoy!
Yesterday, I was once again fortunate enough to come on Dr. Dave Janda’s radio show broadcasted out of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Dave is a surgeon and healthcare policy expert fighting on the front lines of the liberty movement for all of us. He also allowed me to post his thoughts on Obamacare recently, which turned out to be one of the most popular posts on my website to date!
Please have a listen to the interview, I think you’ll really enjoy this one…
