I saw a segment last night on the Channel 9 (Chicago) evening news regarding the City of Chicago’s response to that security bulletin issued by the FBI and DHS the other day. From the WGN TV website: A renewed terror warning in the U.S. is prompting security concerns in Chicago. While acknowledging the city may […]

Last Wednesday, I blogged about a prepper/survivalist show that took place over the weekend in northwest Indiana (anyone go?). This Wednesday, I’m going to talk about one that’s scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 25, in Appleton, Wisconsin (3 hour 17 minute drive from Chicago according to Google). From the event flyer: Are you […]

I’ve been wanting to blog about the latest City of Chicago annual financial analysis for some time now. This afternoon I’m finally getting that chance. From Fran Spielman (who’s done a terrific job breaking those analyses down the past couple years I’ve been paying attention to them) on the Chicago Sun-Times website back in August: […]

Regular readers of Survival And Prosperity know that I’ve taken the threat of terrorism by Muslim extremists seriously for years now- whether Al-Qaeda, the Islamic State, their affiliates, or sympathizers. While it’s obvious to me a number of entities (particularly politicians) are taking advantage of the newly-minted caliphate’s boogeyman factor these days for their own […]

A couple of days ago, I stumbled on a Chicago Tribune piece that made fun of preppers. I’ve encountered a number of these in the mainstream media the past few years, so I wasn’t really surprised to see one in my “local” paper. Columnist Steve Johnson wrote on the Tribune website: All across the country […]

The CEO/Chief Global Strategist of Euro Pacific Capital warned viewers that the U.S. economy is heading towards recession. Schiff- who correctly-called the bursting of the housing bubble in addition to the 2008 economic crisis- began his video blog […]
