You can’t depend on the “news” to give you the full picture.

Our country and the world are changing fast. Those who understand these changes have a strategic advantage over those who don’t.

It’s why hedge funds, investment banks, members of the U.S. military, and even State Department personnel are reading our reports to find what’s missing from their current sources.

Everyday Americans deserve to know exactly what we’re learning in our global research and intelligence reporting. That’s why we run Forward Observer.

Get Black Friday deals that let you bypass fake news and gain real actionable insights:

  • What’s really happening behind closed doors in D.C.?
  • What are the risks and challenges to the U.S. food supply, agriculture, and energy production?
  • What’s next on inflation, recession, and the financial crisis?
  • The new Cold War between the West and the East — who will establish the next global order?
  • What’s the risk of an overt, conventional military conflict with China and Russia?
  • What’s going on with domestic radical and revolutionary groups? Will we see an armed domestic conflict?
  • In answering these questions, our goal at Forward Observer is to be right and be early.
