A new, 100% free online magazine from P.J. O'Rourke
and America's leading financial contrarians...


Dear Concerned American,

If you think everything in America is just fine…

And the people “behind the curtain” of our financial system care about you and your money…

This might not be for you.

But if instead you feel like we do – like you’re never really getting the full story from the mainstream media…

We agree.

And we did something about it.

We believe when it comes to your retirement… your money… and your financial safety in the coming years…

You deserve better.

  • Better than the pollsters who’ve gotten every important event of the last few years dead wrong… from Brexit to Trump to the U.K. populist upset.
  • Better than the Fake News journalists rewriting press releases from lying politicians.
  • And better than the Wall Street “experts” whose advice always seems to be that things are “looking good” for companies at the peak of a bubble and “looking bad” for companies that have just gone up in flames!

That’s why we started American Consequences – a new, online magazine about what’s really happening in American finance… and what’s about to happen next.

The first thing you should know is that American Consequences is 100% free.

There’s no subscription fee… no “paywall”… nothing.

Ever feel like someone is watching you?

Used to be, that was a sure sign of paranoia... Today, it's just common sense.

We're examining the modern "Surveillance and Security State" in this month's magazine.

Editor in Chief P.J. O'Rourke starts us off with a tale of what may be most folks' first experience with the surveillance state... Mom, God, and Santa Claus. (And how the U.S. government has now surpassed all three.)

Former CIA analyst Buck Sexton tells us what really matters when it comes to national security under President Trump. Bestselling author Turney Duff shares the No. 1 rule on Wall Street. Cato Institute co-founder Edward H. Crane asks why the government is so obsessed with spying on us... and takes a lesson from the frog and the scorpion.

Financial analyst and retirement hacker Dr. David Eifrig shows several ways to keep Big Brother from putting you in a lineup without your knowledge.

P.J. reads George Orwell's 1984 novel again with fresh eyes and comes to a disturbing conclusion – both Democrats and Republicans seem determined to make the bookcome true. It's a great essay, but it's also a downer. So we're following it up with a spread of our favorite cartoons from famed cartoonist Hank Blaustein.

AI researcher Stuart Armstrong takes the other side of the debate and looks at the benefits of living in a surveillance state. Dr. Ron Paul looks at a specific program that threatens everyday Americans. And Christine Rosen talks about what happens when everybody is the center of attention... and why the crowded universe for "normal" attention-seeking behavior will keep on increasing.

P.J. shares a tale of something important that is lost in a world of instant connectivity. (This article is my personal favorite that we're publishing this month. Read it with your spouse.)

Then we share a video report from Tucker Carlson, who scares the worldwide web out of us. Alice Lloyd details the contraption covering her laptop's webcam. And Doug Casey wonders what happens after the next 9/11 disaster... explaining why a police state is absolutely possible in the U.S.

And don't miss investigative reporter Peter Byrne's feature story on the complicated Rosneft energy deal... He questions who got paid and how much. If you've ever wondered why the Russia investigation was so focused on Carter Page, read this article.

Finally, we end with a conversation with business leader Steve Forbes.

If you've ever felt that something is wrong with America's security state – this issue is for you.

American Consequences is edited by P.J. O’Rourke, author of 19 books including Eat The Rich and How the Hell Did This Happen: The Election of 2016.

P.J. cut his teeth as an editor-in-chief of the National Lampoon and a foreign affairs correspondent for Rolling Stone.

He’s since written for The Weekly Standard… The Atlantic… and many other magazines.

  • The Washington Times said he “takes no prisoners.”
  • The Telegraph called him a “hellraiser” known for “his trademark merciless skewering of liberal niceties and political correctness at every turn.”
  • The Guardian called him “a Republican answer to Hunter S. Thompson.”
  • And the Chicago Tribune said he “Writes like your average ruthless assassin [and] takes great pride in being an equal opportunity offender.”

P.J. is the H. L. Mencken fellow at the Cato Institute, a member of the editorial board of World Affairs and a regular panelist on NPR's Wait… Wait… Don't Tell Me.

He lives with his family in rural New England, as far away from the things he writes about as he can get.
