Yugoslavia 2.0

I’ve been studying the breakup of Yugoslavia for many months now. It is, as far as I can tell, like a marriage. Complex. To be fair, grievances amongst different ethnic and religious groups had been simmering for hundreds of years before the last Yugoslavian civil war erupted, splintering the nation into its now multiple new parts. Going back in time a bit, context is needed… The Paris Peace Conference at the end of the first World War created “the Kingdom

Putin Gives the Middle Finger to Gates and the Marxist UN Green Agenda

The cold war wasn’t named that because it involved Russia, which is as cold as a witch’s tit (at least in winter), but rather because it didn’t involve Ivan firing his shiny Kalashnikov at Bo, Billy or Bob. Hence cold, not hot. This was while both powers worked to undermine the other via various means, largely economic. The war we’re in now, and it is a war, is similar.

The Golden Gun

Going shooting wasn’t my idea. I’d been working around the clock closing a deal and it was a good excuse to get out of town for a couple of days. A friend of mine, an executive at a billion-dollar gold company, invited me to a gun range near his log cabin in Whistler. I’ve spent the last 14 years flying between mine sites and office towers. The last time I spent any serious time shooting was as a teenager on

A Giant Bubble in Nonsense

That’s what Eric Weinstein calls it. To be more accurate: “We are in the middle of a giant bubble of nonsense that is 50 years in the making in my estimation” Speaking of nonsense I’ve previously discussed the ESG movement on this site. ESG stands for Environmental, Social and Governance. It’s as if a bunch of folks who wear hemp clothes, sport dreadlocks and hug trees for a living built the financial marketing arm of Greta Thunberg.  ESG is the
