"There are two sorts of wealth-getting, as I have said; one is a part of household management, the other is retail trade: the former necessary and honorable, while that which consists in exchange is justly censured; for it is unnatural, and a mode by which men gain from one another. The most hated sort, and with the greatest reason, is usury, which makes a gain out of money itself, and not from the natural object of it. For money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest. And this term interest, which means the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money because the offspring resembles the parent. Wherefore of modes of getting wealth this is the most unnatural."
- Politics, Aristotle, 350 B.C.
"The Jew alone regards his race as superior to humanity, and looks forward not to its ultimate union with other races, but to its triumph over them all and to its final ascendancy under the leadership of a tribal Messiah."
- Goldwin Smith, The Jewish Question, October 1881
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”
- President Woodrow Wilson 1916
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
- David Rockefeller, Baden-Baden, Germany 1991
“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”
- Henry Ford
“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.”
- Franklin D. Roosevelt, letter to Col. House, November 21, l933
“One of the least understood strategies of the world revolution now moving rapidly toward its goal is the use of mind control as a major means of obtaining the consent of the people who will be subjects of the New World Order.”

"We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers for ever. Nothing that you will do will meet our needs and demands. We will for ever destroy because we need a world of our own, a God-world, which it is not in your nature to build."

“We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.”
- David Rockefeller
“Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government.”
- Dr. Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference, Evians, France, 1991
"Never argue with stupid people. They will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience." –Mark Twain
If you want to begin to understand and appreciate the work of Mike Stathis, from his market forecasts and securities analysis to his political and economic analysis, you will first need to learn how to think clearly. For many, this will be a cleansing process that could take quite a long time to complete depending on each individual.
The best way to begin to clear your mind is to first move forward with this series of steps:
1. GET RID OF YOUR TV SET (at least cancel your cable)
2. REFUSE TO USE YOUR PHONE TO TEXT
3. DO NOT USE A "SMART PHONE" (or at least do not use your phone to access the internet)
4. STAY AWAY FROM SOCIAL MEDIA
The cleansing process will take time but you can hasten the process by being proactive in exercising your mind.
You should also be aware of a very common behavior exhibited by humans who have been exposed to the various aspects of modern society. This behavior occurs when an individual overestimates his abilities and knowledge, while underestimating his weaknesses and lack of understanding. This behavior has been coined the "Dunning-Kruger Effect" after to sociologists who described it in a research publication. See here.
Many people today think they are virtual experts on every topic they regard with relevance. The reason for this illusory behavior is because these individuals typically allow themselves to become brainwashed by various media outlets. The more information these individuals obtain on these topics from the media, the more qualified they feel they are in these subjects, without realizing that the media is not a valid source with which to use for understanding something. The media always has bias and can never be relied on to represent the full truth.
A perfect example of the Dunning-Kruger Effect can be seen with many individuals who listen to talk radio shows. These shows are politically biased and consist of individuals who resemble used car salesmen more than intellectuals. These talking heads brainwash their audience with cherry-picked facts, misstatements and lies regarding relevant issues such as healthcare, immigration, Social Security, Medicaid, economics, science, and so forth. They also select guests for interview based on the agendas they wish to fulfill with their advertisers.
Once their audience has been indoctrinated by these propagandists, they feel qualified to discuss these topics on the same level as a real authority, without realizing that they obtained their understanding from individuals who are employed as professional liars and manipulators by the media. Another good example of the Dunning-Kruger Effect can be seen upon examination of political pundits, stock market and economic analysts on TV. They talk a good game because they are professional speakers. But once you examine their track record, it is clear that these individuals are largely wrong, but they have developed an inflated sense of expertise and knowledge on topics for which they continuously demonstrate their incompetence.
One of the most insightful analogies created to explain how things are often not what you see was Plato's Allegory of the Cave, from Book 7 of the Republic.
We highly recommend that you study this masterpiece in great detail so that you are better able to use logic and reason.Although we recommend you read and study The Allegory of the Cave, you can get a flavor for its meaning by watching the following video.
If you can learn how to think like a philosopher, specifically one of the great ancient Greek philosophers, it is highly unlikely that you will ever be fooled by con artists like those who make ridiculous and unfounded claims in order to pump gold and silver, the typical get-rich-quick or multi-level marketing (MLM) crowd.
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
King James Bible - Matthew 7:15
"It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled." –Mark Twain
All Viewpoints Are Not Created Equal Just because something is published in print, online or aired in the broadcast media does not make it accurate. In fact, more often than not the larger the audience, the more likely the content is either inaccurate or slanted. The next time you read something about economics or investments, you should ask two main questions in order to assess the credibility of the source. Is the source biased in any way? That is, do they have any agendas which would provide any type of benefit accounting for their views? Most individuals either sell ads on their site or are dealers of precious metals or securities. That means their views are biased and cannot be relied upon.
Is your source is credible?
Most people associate credibility with name-recognition. But more often than not, name-recognition serves as a predictor of bias if not lack of credibility because the more a name is recognized, the more the individual has been plastered in the media. And every intelligent person knows that individuals who have been provided with media exposure because they are either naive or clueless. The media positions these types of individuals as “credible experts” in order to please its financial sponsors; Wall Street.
Instead of name-recognition or media celebrity status, you must determine whether your source has relevant experience on Wall Street as opposed to being self-taught. But this is just a basic hurdle that in itself by no means ensures the source is competent or credible. More important, always examine the track record of your source in depth, looking for accuracy and specific forecasts rather than open-ended statements. You must also look for timing since a broken clock is always right once a day. Finally, make sure they do not cherry-pick their best calls. Always examine their entire track record.
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
King James Bible - Matthew 7:15
The above questions require only slight modification for use in determining the credibility of sources that discuss other topics, such as politics, healthcare, etc.We have compiled the most extensive publication exposing hundreds of con men pertaining to the financial publishing and securities industry, although we also cover numerous con men in the media and other front groups since they are all associated in some way with each other.
There is perhaps no one else in the world capable of shedding the full light on these con men other than Mike Stathis. Mike has been studying the indistry for well over a decade. Alhough he has published numerous articles and videos addressing this dark side of the industry, the entire collection can be found in our ENCYCLOPEDIA of Bozos, Hacks, Snake Oil Salesmen and Faux Heroes.
At AVA Investment Analytics, we don't try to pump gold, silver or equities like many others you see because we are not promoters or marketers. And we do not receive any compensation whatsoever (including from ads) from our content. We provide individual investors, financial advisers, analysts and fund managers with world-class research, education and unique insight.
If you listen to the media, most likely it is costing you hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost money at minimum over the course of your lifetime. The deceit, lies and useless guidance from the financial media certainly is a large contributor of these losses to the sheep you pay attention.
But a good deal of lost wealth comes in the form of excessive consumerism which the media seeks to impose on its audience. You aren’t going to know that you’re being brainwashed or that you have lost $1 million or $2 million over your life time due to the media, but I can guarantee you that with rare exception this is the reality for those who are naïve enough to waste time on the media.
It gets worse. By listening to the media, you are likely to also suffer ill health effects through the lack of timely coverage of toxic prescription drugs or through the ridiculous medical shows, all of which are supportive of the medical-industrial complex.
And if you seek out the so-called "alternative media" you might make the mistake of relying on con men like Kevin Trudeau or Alex Jones. This could be a deadly decision. As bad as traditional media is, the so-called "alternative media" is even worse.
Why Does the Media Air Liars and Con Men?
The goal of the media is NOT to serve its audience because the audience does NOT pay the bills.
The goal of the media is to please its sponsors, or the companies that spend huge dollars buying ads, and in order for companies to justify these expenses, they need the media to represent their cause. The media does this by airing idiots and con men who mislead and confuse their audience.
By engaging in "journalistic fraud," the media steers its audience into the arms of its advertisers because the audience is now misled and confused, so in the case of the financial media, it seeks the assistance of Wall Street brokerage firms, mutual funds, insurance companies, precious metals dealers. This is why advertisers pay big money to be promoted in the financial media.
We see the same thing on a more obvious note in the so-called "alternative media," which is really a remanufactured version of the so-called "mainstream media." Do not be fooled. There is no such thing as the "alternative media."
In order to be considered "media" you must have content that has widespread channels of distribution. Thus, all "media" is widely distributed and the same powers that control the distribution of the so-called "mainstream media" also control the distribution of the so-called "alternative media."
The claim that there is an "alternative media" is merely a sales pitch designed to capture the audience that has since given up on the "mainstream media." The tactic is a very common one used by con men.
The same tactic is used by Washington to convince naive voters that there are meaningful differences between the nation's two political parties. In reality, both parties are essentially the same when it comes to issues that matter most (trade policy, healthcare and war). Anyone who tells you anything different simply isn't thinking straight.
On this site, we expose the lies and the liars in the media. We discuss and reveal the motives and track record of the media’s hand-selected charlatans with a focus on the financial media.
No one has generated a more accurate track record in the investment markets over the past several years than Mike Stathis. Yet, the financial media wants nothing to do with Stathis.
You aren't even going to hear him on the radio being interviewed.
You aren't going to see him mentioned on any websites either.
You won't read or hear of his remarkable track record unless you read about it on this website or read his books.
You should be wondering why this might be. Some of you already know the answer.
The media has banned Mike Stathis because the trick is to air clowns so that the audience will be steered into the hands of the media's financial sponsors - Wall Street and gold dealers.
And as for the radio shows and websites that either don't know about Stathis or don't care to hear what he has to say, the fact is that they are so stupid that they assume those who are plastered in the media are credible. And since they haven't seen or heard Stathis in the media, even if they come across him, they automatically assume he's a nobody in the investment world simply because he has no media exposure.
Well, if media exposure was a testament to knowledge, credibility and excellent track records, Peter Schiff's clients would be a lot happier when they looked at their account balance.
Others only care about pitching what’s deemed as the “hot” topic because this sells ads in terms of more site visits or reads. This is why you come across so many websites based on doom and conspiratorial horse shit run by con artists looking to cash in on ads.
We have donated countless hours and huge sums of money towards the pursuit of exposing the con men, lies and fraud. We continue this mission but we cannot continue it forever without your assistance.
We have been banned by virtually every media platform in the U.S and every website (mainly because we expose the truth about gold and silver).
We have been banned from use of email marketing providers.
The fact is that the Jewish Mafia has declared war on us because we have exposed the realities of the U.S. government, Wall Street and corporate America.
Note that we only began discussing the role of Jews in criminality by 2009, three years AFTER we had been black-listed by the media, so no one can say that our criticism of the Jewish Mafia has led to being black-listed, not that it would even be acceptable.
You can talk about the Italian Mafia, and Jewish Hollywood can make 100s of movies about it...
BUT YOU CANNOT TALK ABOUT THE JEWISH MAFIA.
We rely on you to help spread the word about us. Just remember this. We don’t have to do what we are doing.
We could do as everyone else and focus on making money. We are doing sacrificing everything because in this day and age, unfortunately, the truth is revolutionary. It is also critical in order to prevent the complete enslavement of world citizenry.
On Exposure: No one who has significant exposure can be trusted because those who are responsible for permitting such exposure have allowed it for a very good reason, and that reason does not serve your best interests.
On Spotting Frauds: Whenever you wish to know whether someone can be trusted, always remember this golden rule..."a man is judged by the company he keeps."
This is a very important rule to remember because con men almost always belong to the same network.
You will see the same con artists referencing each other, on blog rolls and so forth.
Our primary focus is on investment research and analysis, rather than marketing and sales. This means you get access to some of the best research and analysis anywhere in the world.
We help fund managers and analysts with valuation analysis, market forecasting and investment strategy using our proprietary methodology.
We provide investment and trading strategies, valuation analysis, market forecasting, hedging, economic analysis and a variety of other services to individual investors who are serious about investing
We provide a comprehensive suite of services to entrepreneurs and early stage firms.
I think it is important to remind people about the price and quality of content. It’s really quite simple. No content is truly free. You pay a huge price for that content. Unfortunately, the price you pay is almost always hidden so that most people never even realize what it has cost them. Most often, the cost is an opportunity cost or the cost of misinformation which leads to huge losses of money or even one's health.
No one has a crystal ball, but two things are certain. When you want to know precisely what is going on, you will never get unbiased insight from sources that sell ads, securities and/or precious metals. You absolutely need to become consciously aware of this fact. Otherwise, you are going to get screwed. If you ask a stock broker about stocks, they will always have some great "picks" for you. If you ask a real estate agent about property, they will always have a great deal for you regardless how bad the real estate market looks. If you go to a salesmen, he will sell you something. That's his job. It's his craft. Sales and marketing involve inherently deceptive tactics at best, and complete lies at worst. If a media source sells ads, the content is always going to be slanted in favor of the sponsors and/or the full truth is not being told because it is not “politically correct” for instance. This renders every website that contains advertisements as disreputable. So why does the media continue to BAN Stathis? Why does the media constantly air con men who have lousy track records? These are critical questions to be answered. You need to confront the media with these questions. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Mike Stathis holds the best investment forecasting track record in the world since 2006.

This publication has a total length of over 100 pages and contains some of Mike's most compelling and insightful analyses and conclusions regarding the gold pumping syndicate. List of SOME of Mike's articles and videos on Gold Because of the effort required to create this publication (reports of this length and depth typically require more than 300 hours to complete) as well as the valuable education provided in this report (each of Mike's articles could easily save investors thousands of dollars by preventing them from being taken), this publication in its entirety is only available to Clients and Members. However, as a part of our continuing efforts to expose investment fraud, con men and complete idiots positioned by the media as "experts," we have made a portion of the introduction available to the general public. Keep in mind that when you decide whether or not to listen to the ideals of someone, it is critical to determine their credibility and agendas. So how does Mike stack up in terms of credibility? As most of you already know, Mike holds the leading investment forecasting track record in the world since 2006. View Mike Stathis' Track Record here, here, here, here, here and here. In fact, Mike is the only person we know of to have ever attached a $100,000 reward available to anyone who could prove that he doesn’t hold the leading investment forecasting track record in the world. What about agendas or bias? Does Mike get paid by outside interests to promote precious metals or securities? Absolutely not. It is critical to keep in mind that Mike does not sell advertisements, precious metals or securities. Therefore, he has NO agendas. I challenge you to find another financial professional who does not receive any form of compensation from the sales of securities, precious metals, or advertisements. Mike has also emerged as one of the world's foremost authorities on investment-related and consumer fraud. Membership Resources Membership Resources As perhaps the sole voice of reason pertaining to precious metals…that is to say, having accurately predicted the bull market and having warned investors about gold dealers and the gold bubble…Mike has revealed the layers surrounding this fraudulent scheme for several years now. List of SOME of Mike's articles and videos on Gold Ask yourself why you never see Stathis' work discussed on any gold websites. Ask why you will never hear him being interviewed by gold dealers. Ask yourself why very few gold pumpers or gold dealers have any credibility. Ask yourself why some gold pumpers even refuse to give you their real name. Ask yourself why some gold pumpers have moved to second and third world nations while carrying out their "business," and/or have appeared on the scene only around the time of the financial crisis. Ask yourself why every gold pumper always says the same thing, always makes excuses when gold and silver decline, never provide you with an exit strategy, and always insist you buy physical metals. Of course the answer to each of these mysteries is a bit different, but you can pretty much sum it up with the following... They are all lying con men and idiots who are being paid to pump gold and silver to sheep. Mike is a real investment professional with excellent credentials, an excellent track record, no agendas (he does not sell gold, silver, advertisements or securities) and he has worked in the financial industry as a professional since the 1990s. Wake up and smell the coffee. All sources that discuss and publish material about gold and silver are NOT legit sources of unbiased info. They are providing you with cheap infomercials!! Stop being taken for a fool. For those who insist on remaining skeptical despite Stathis' world-leading investment track record, his absence of agendas and his results-based research and insights, it is important to keep in mind that he was recommending gold investments as early as late-2001 while working on Wall Street. Check into every single precious metal dealer and you will see that their one-sided bull shit sales pitch is designed specifically to convince you that your financial safety relies on you buying gold and silver. But not just any form of gold and silver, such as through ETFs, which are the least expensive way to own them, not to mention the only way to own a liquid version of these illiquid metals. Are their claims true? Do they have any validity? According to Mike Stathis, the answer is NO. They are trying to swindle you. They pull this scam by creating an endless array of lies AND by repeating them over and over using advertisements, documentaries, conferences, websites, and so forth. The gold and silver pumping scam has been the big fraud of the post-financial crisis era. And no one is talking about it EXCEPT Mike Stathis. Check into every precious metals promoter (websites, conferences, radio shows) and you will see that every single person who promotes precious metals dealers is selling ads for precious metals and similar items that fit into the doomsday theme. Would you really go to a real estate broker if you wanted to find out of it was a good time to buy a house? If so then you are very naive. The same situation exists with seeking out information about the economy and precious metals. The last person you would want to pay attention to are precious metals dealers and those who make money selling precious metals and related ads. During the California Gold Rush of the 1800s, most of the people who struck it rich weren't gold miners. The guys who really made a fortune were the ones who opened general stores. They made a killing selling these hopeful gold prospectors supplies. This is exactly how the current precious metals scam will play out as well. The guys who make all the money will be those who are selling you the precious metals, doomsday products and those who sell advertisements. The California Gold Rush Of The Twenty-First Century If you are interested in being exposed to the best source of insight you need to seek out the views of individuals who have no bias, no agendas and who have very good track records. I can guarantee you will NEVER find such individuals who talk up gold and silver. As Mike has been warning, if you pay attention to ad-based content your life is going to suffer in many ways. And by the time you truly realize this it might be too late. Doomsday douche bags and gold charlatans come in all varieties, from smooth talking sharks who claim to be investment experts (despite their lack of professional experience), to fruit loops who continue to predict hyperinflation and destruction of the dollar, year after year. Their propaganda campaign has been in the making for a number of years and it has been elaborately engineered. No expense has been spared to carry out this grand production because the payoff is enormous, from 10% to 40% commissions on every dollar they convince their sheep to lay down on gold and silver. The plot is simple. Convince naive and/or unsophisticated individuals that the dollar is headed to 0, hyperinflation is inevitable, and the stock market is going to collapse by as much as 80%. Next, position gold and silver as your savior from doom. With a scenario like that, people rarely even think about the high commissions they are paying for gold and silver. They focus on buying as much as they can. The entire scam constitutes fraud. In order to carry out this heist, these charlatans utilize one of the oldest and most common tricks used by the media. I call it the flooding approach. That is, if you get several individuals constantly delivering the same message, most people will accept it as true. This giant wave of deceit and fraud features numerous conferences, events and other platforms created specifically for the purpose of advancing the countless lies, myths and scare tactics all of which comprise the case for gold and silver as a way to protect yourself from the destruction of all currencies. These con men are seen and heard everywhere you look, from mainstream and alternative media, to thousands of websites and radio stations. Their online presence is inescapable. No matter where you turn, you will see ads for gold and silver and doomsday scenarios on virtually every website containing ad-based content, pointing to just how much money is involved in pumping the precious metals doomsday sales pitch. The gold/silver doomsday scam has offered hope for thousands of unemployed individuals who now support themselves by serving as whores for Google via Adsense, whether it be by pimping ads for precious metals on their website or their You Tube channel. Some even hold a day job, but greed has gotten the best of them so they too have become paid whores for the highly deceptive precious metals industry. They have become small-scale versions of Peter Schiff, Glenn Beck and Alex Jones, spewing all kinds of ridiculous statements and scare tactics. Working part time, there have been some who have managed to bring in a six-figure income selling precious metals and doomsday ads through their gold pumping websites and You Tube channels as a part-time gig. And of course we cannot forget about the guys pitching gold "chocolate bars" which are marketed as a way to "protect the value of your currency." In fact, these awkward thin slabs of gold are even positioned as a real currency that might place one at a huge advantage during high inflation. Wow. The suggestive nature of this pitch is alarming, especially considering the fact that the main pitch man is a licensed securities professional, supposedly with strict oversight by FINRA and the SEC. As you can imagine, if you want to rip people off and get away with it, it pays to be Jewish, especially when you work in industries completely controlled by the Jewish Mafia. After you purchase this "gold currency," it immediately loses 8% of its value due to the fees paid to the vender. Oddly, these venders never mention this reality. I wonder why. And we certainly cannot leave out all of those self-proclaiming "patriots, liberty-lovers and capitalists" who sell non-government issued silver coins that cannot even be used as monopoly money, but which are being sold for prices much higher than the spot metal price. I'm willing to bet that a good deal of these coins contain less silver than advertised. It is indeed amazing just how gullible the general population has become. I do not know what is more depressing; the gullible nature of the general population or the large and growing number of con men in the population looking to suck every penny from everyone they can (continued for Members and Clients). Regardless of the angle utilized to herd the sheep, all of these doomsday charlatans have a few things in common. And now I shall discuss 20 of the Most Common Characteristics of Gold Charlatans. After you read this analysis, you will see how these scam artists operate and how they have fooled millions with their snake oil.

Due to the great success of our June Promotion, we have decided to extend this offer through August.
You might recall that I have profiled a few mutual fund disasters. If you haven't already read these articles, I strongly suggest you do so ASAP. You might recall that I have profiled a few mutual fund disasters. If you haven't already read these articles, I strongly suggest you do so ASAP. Mutual Fund Disasters: An Overview Mutual Fund Disasters (Part 2) Mutual Fund Disasters (Part 3) Mutual Fund Disasters: David Tice and his Prudent Bear Fund Mutual Fund Disasters: The Rise and Fall of Bill Miller Mutual Fund Disasters: Harry Dent the Fund Manager Target-Date Funds: Another Dangerous Investment Epiphany And if you have already read them, you might want to take another look because one can never get enough of the truth when it comes to the financial industry. It is important to understand that there are many more of these fund disasters; too many for me to cover. And I'm sure there are many more that I do not know about. Perhaps the most important take away message from these articles is that you should never assume any fund manager or financial "expert" is worth a damn regardless what Morningstar (which serves as a hack firm for funds) or the media tells you because they are all playing on the same team. You are viewed as the opposing team. And their intent is to grab as much money from you as possible, all while making it look like they are doing you a favor. You should always assume that all fund managers and financial advisers are fairly useless, or else not worth what they are charging you until proven otherwise (and if you think that a 2 or 3% annual fee is small, try compounding this rate over several years and tell me what you think. Have a look at the long-term impact of fees on your returns. I am not saying that all of them are useless. I am telling you that you must make this assumption until proven otherwise because the percentage of competent fund managers and financial advisers is unfortunately quite low. Without a doubt, there ARE a few really good, ethical and honest fund managers and financial advisers out there. And it's always a great experience to run across one because it is a rare event. The problem is that everyone seems to always think their guy is one of the "few" good ones that exist within an industry filled with chumps and con men. Don't be one of these suckers! In reality, if in fact you do feel that you have landed one of the honest, competent guys, there is probably a 95% chance you are wrong. Why do I say that? Unless you have a good deal of experience working in the financial industry and really understand investments, you are highly unlikely to even possess the ability to determine whether or not you have run across the rare "good" fund or financial adviser. The reality is that I can determine whether a fund or adviser is good, but most of you simply lack the understanding necessary to do so. The sooner you accept this limitation the better off you will be. Never forget this. Fund managers should prove to you without a shadow of a doubt that they are worthy of your time, trust and money. The big problem is that the vast majority of investors either are not aware of this or else do not know how to screen funds and managers. And as I said earlier, you can't blindly rely on financial advisers either. Make no mistake. Most of these guys are sharks as well. A good deal of them are plain idiots, but most of them are smooth talkers and bull shit artists. Remember, I worked in the industry and I know well what I am talking about. I saw it all first hand. I wouldn't have any of this crap. I refused to go against my responsibility to do what was best for my clients. Once I saw how you were supposed to play the game, I left. And I have never looked back. Understanding whether a fund is worth a damn is a very difficult task to oversee because the companies that run funds spend a boatload of money on misleading presentations designed to back their arguments. As well, they also employ a large army of smooth talking salesmen who are able to sell ice to Eskimos. The same applies to financial advisers. Remember, these guys are pure salesmen. That's it. And they have just enough knowledge to make you think they are competent if you don't know much about finance, economics, the capital markets and investment management. It's safe to say that the vast majority of everyday people don't know much about these topics. Even if you do know a great deal about these subjects, it is important to realize that financial salesmen have been armed with all kinds of biased data and sales tactics needed to convince you that they are right and you are wrong. Last, but certainly not least, they often exploit the inadequate understanding Main Street has of investments by manipulating economic and financial data to make it appear as if they can make you well off. One of the more common scams marketed by fund companies and financial advisers is the old "Do you know how much you will need for retirement?" pitch. The idea is for the adviser to demonstrate he or she is good with money matters as they estimate how much money your will need for retirement. Forget the fact that these estimates are often highly inaccurate since no one knows what their life situation will be like during retirement. Once they have helped you determine the estimate, they show you different ways to achieve your required income based on the amount of risk you want to take. The estimated investment returns of course are very rough estimates and could be wrong by a long shot. Never mind that because the idea is to sell you. And they often do. The reality is that fund and advisers are usually benefiting much more than you due to the high fees they are charging. Meanwhile, they risk nothing even when they lose your money other than a smaller payout. After having worked in the industry, I've seen it all, from dishonest brokers and poorly run funds to pinheads fund disasters. Generally speaking, there's just something about most of these guys that isn't right. In fact, the entire industry gives me the creeps to be honest. But if you are fortunate, the worst of the bunch you will end up with will suffer only from being an idiot rather than a crook. Here is just one example of the kinds of idiots you sometimes run across in the financial industry. One of the senior brokers at the Dallas Bear Stearns office, a managing director, bought tax-free (municipal) bonds for his clients who held IRA accounts. This should give you an idea how meaningful designations such as managing director and vice president are. All it means is that you bring in a lot of sales. The problem is that you are unlikely to ever know what kind of ridiculous mistakes these guys are making. Again, I know what's going on because I worked in the industry. But don't expect anyone else to tell you the real deal. And if you think the guys who work for real Wall Street firms are clueless, you'd be shocked to learn how incompetent these RIA (registered investment adviser) guys generally are. RIAs do not hold a series 7 license and are only registered in their state. They almost always have never even worked for a Wall Street firm so they have no training or real insight. Most of them are the clowns who spend all of their time in the media. You know, guys like Barry Ritholtz and Josh Brown and so forth. Oh and by the way, to those of you who might have an account with an RIA, I'm going to let you in on a big secret that I can guarantee you no one has ever revealed. RIAs are very easy to sue, so if you lose your money you can go after them because they don't have the legal protection of a large Wall Street firm, so chances are your attorney will get them to settle quickly. This is especially the case if the RIA is posting investment-related articles online or blabbering on TV or radio. If you have lost money with a stock broker/financial adviser, etc., you have about three years to sue. And if you aren't in the right hands you won't win because it can be costly even for contingency cases due to all of the extra fees. Perhaps I'll launch an advisory service to help investors get back the money they lost. The big secret Wall Street doesn't want you to know (besides the fact that the industry is raping Main Street every day to the tune of billions of dollars) is that most financial professionals, fund managers and analysts aren't worth the money they are paid. It's largely a huge scam designed to continuous find new ways to convince you of the value of a financial advisor so that you will send them your money. Previously I even exposed how one airhead accidentally revealed what money management is all about. See WSJ Airheads Accidentally Reveal The Managed Money Scam What that means is that if you own a fund or have a financial adviser, chances are very high that you are throwing away a large amount of money. For those who would like us to determine whether your financial adviser or fund is worth a damn, we might be willing to conduct an assessment for a fee. However, we cannot give personal financial advice. Don't bother to contact us if you aren't willing to spend at least $1000 for this service. Contact us for more details. The reason why so many investors are unaware that most funds and financial advisers are a waste of money and time is due to the fact that the financial industry is largely based on smoke and mirrors. It's all about perception. Wall Street firms spend billions of dollars each year on advertising gimmicks and other schemes in order to convince investors that they need them because they can give you an edge. This is really hogwash. The main problem is that because most people have very little knowledge or understanding of investments and how Wall Street operates, they are easily seduced by a smooth-talking financial adviser. As a result, most investors actually think their financial adviser "good." There is an easy way to know whether your financial adviser is worth the money you are paying him/her. If they subscribe to our research then you should be able to rest in comfort knowing they have been armed with the best unbiased investment research in the world. Quite simply, if you have a financial adviser, you should ask whether they subscribe to our research. If they don't you would be wise to move your money to someone who does. Here we have another example of mutual fund disasters. John Hussman: Another Doomsday Douchebag With Terrible Performance Ever since I discussed John Hussman in a video last April, his funds have performed even worse. See here. John Hussman: Another Doomsday Douchebag with Terrible Performance Notice how Hussman has aligned himself with other doomsday clowns like Doug "doomsday" Casey and his pinheads, as well as Mike "moron" Maloney and Mike "mental midget" Shedlock. Remember that you are judged by the company you keep. Hussman has even aligned himself with the Kosher-approved conspiracy con man and gold-pumping idiot, Alex Jones.

As someone who has been an active participant in the capital markets for nearly two decades, as well as a watchdog for Main Street exposing media spin and deception, consumer fraud, and securities manipulation, perhaps the single most important thing I have learned is the following:
Have you ever wondered why most people get screwed in the stock market?
It's simple folks. The Jewish Mafia wants to SCREW YOU by creating the illusion of valuable content. This is all part of the Jewish media scam.
Real experts will tell you that precious metals should be traded in order to exploit the price volatility. This is the most prudent manner by which to minimize risk because it enables one to lower the overall cost basis and increase liquidity. The top investors in the world agree on this. It is a fact. Anyone who tells you anything different is either lying or misinformed.
The streak of huge buyout deals continues for subscribers of Dividend Gems. Last year, Dividend Gems subscribers were rewarded with a similar 1-day premium of around 40% when Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway agreed to purchase Heinz.
We are very excited to announce the launch of a new platform designed to get investors up to speed in areas we feel are essential investment success – the AVAIA Investment Boot Camp.
That's right folks. Once again, Mike Stathis nailed the market selloff before it began, helping to position his clients in cash.
For those of you who might be wondering if Mike finally missed a market downturn, after having accurately nailed every single selloff and rally since March 2009. The answer is NO. Mike has been warning precisely about what we recently experienced this week in the stock market. In fact, he has been stressing that China would continue to devalue the yuan, causing big problems for Asia and emerging markets. Accordingly, without going into too much detail, Mike has been advising his research clients to build a very large cash position for several months. (listen to the audio below) What does the future hold for the capital markets? If you want to lose your ass, pay attention to the media. We have proven this to be the result. No one has a crystal ball, but if anyone knows it’s Mike Stathis. His forecasting record is already legendary. See for yourself below. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So why does the media continue to BAN Stathis? Why does the media constantly air con men who have lousy track records? These are critical questions to be answered. You need to confront the media with these questions.

The Jewish Mafia seeks to steal as much money as it can through all sorts of methods, from direct scams on Wall Street to more subtle scams using the Jewish media. And while they practice a pathological form of tribalism, the fact is when it comes to stealing money they don’t care where it comes from.
Did you make at least 70% shorting JC Penny (JCP) like our clients did? What about SUPERVALU (SVU)? Did you lock in 400% on Bon Ton (BONT)? Did you nail 50% shorting Mako Surgical (MAKO) all the way down like our clients? Did you lock in 300% in Arena Pharmaceuticals (ARNA) like we did before it went to the moon? Those who had access to a special video series created by Mike Stathis did.
Jim Rogers in early 2013. Notice the fat Jewish weirdo, pinhead loser calling Rogers "one of the insiders of the world financial elite." Hahahahahahahahahahaha!!

Before you even think about listening to what anyone has to say about investments, including subscribing to an investment newsletter, you need to ask yourself a few questions.
As you watch this video, I want you to keep in mind that this is the guy the media has positioned as a credible expert for YOU, the audience. One of the easiest ways to get a good sense of how stupid and naive the general public has become is to note how close financial media resembles trash TV. For instance, instead of credible experts with proven track records of excellence, the financial media most often airs broken clock salesmen who are nothing more than con artists. But because the media claims these charlatans are "experts" all while lying about their track record, the audience goes along with these false claims as if they were true. The underlying problem is that people just haven't accepted the fact that the media not only has a LEGAL right to lie (you cannot sue the media for making things up), the media is actually in the business to lie and deceive. The striking thing to note about this scam is that vast majority of these so-called "experts" are Jewish which is by no means a mere coincidence. I have discussed the discrimination by Jewish-run industries in favor of Jews many times in the past. I have also discussed the fact that the financial media's goal is to make sure its audience is confused and/or steered down the gutter. This confusion ensures that the audience will trade securities more frequently. As you can imagine, this pleases big ad sponsors like Charles Schwab, E-Trade, Ameritrade and other online brokers. After reading and watching financial media, many investors ultimately run to major Wall Street firms, insurance companies and mutual fund companies, begging for their portfolio to be rescued after they listened to the media's "experts." Other investors eventually throw in the towel and never invest again due to the emotional trauma as a result of their financial losses. And they never even realize that the financial media caused them to suffer these losses. The problem is that they actually trust the media. The media should be trusted as much as you would trust the Wall Street banker gang. Is it any coincidence that the same guys who run the media also run Wall Street, the banks and the Federal Reserve? This Kosher scam ensures the media can charge top dollar for ads purchased by Wall Street firms, insurance companies and mutual fund companies. Hence, the media's disinformation scheme provides a great return on investment to these financial firms that pony up big bucks for ads. It's the perfect criminal system for the media because they cannot be held accountable by law even if they position a con man as an expert. This is what very few people realize. The main stars of this financial trash TV are broken clocks and contrarian indicators who deliver the same sales pitch day after day, week after week, year after year. That is what salesmen do after all. And once they have been called out for being completely wrong for years, they fight back by changing their talking points to focus on trivial rants, such as when the Fed is going to taper or raise interest rates. As you watch this video, I want you to keep in mind that this is the guy the media has positioned as a credible expert for YOU, the audience. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Mike Stathis holds the best investment forecasting track record in the world since 2006.

As the propaganda continues to be churned out by the Jewish media monolpoly regarding Greece, take note of the idiotic comments confirming just how much the Jewish media controls the minds of the population. I wanted to republish the facts about the Jewish banking scum.
I think it is important to remind people about the price and quality of content. It’s really quite simple. No content is truly free. You pay a huge price for that content. Unfortunately, the price you pay is almost always hidden so that most people never even realize what it has cost them. Most often, the cost is an opportunity cost or the cost of misinformation which leads to huge losses of money or even one's health.
January 15, 2013 UPDATE: We have extended the duration of analysis of Mike's track record from October 2006 to December 2012. And we have extended the deadline for submissions for this $100,000 reward to December 2013.
In August 2009, Mike Stathis posted a reward for the first person who could prove that there was a financial professional that could match his track record before, during and after the economic collapse.

Gold bugs and dealers alike have pumped out so many misconceptions and flat out lies about gold, silver, and the economy that it would be impossible for me to set the story straight in a single article; that's saying a lot considering the fact that my articles tend to be rather lengthy. However, I have previously written several articles that address the majority of the most common of these myths and lies (check the end of this article for a partial list). If you have been sucked into the vortex of lies from these charlatans, you could stand to lose a HUGE amount of money over the next several years as the gold bull market comes to an end. And if you really think gold will never again fall below $1000 as Marc Faber the gold-pumping clown has "guaranteed," I regret to inform you that you're a damn fool. Why would you even trust what a man who is always preaching doom has to say? Moreover, if you really think the Dow Jones is headed to 1000 like Robert Prechter insists, you aren't thinking straight. And if you think the euro and even the European economy is in better shape that the U.S. dollar and the U.S. economy, as Peter Schiff insists you might want to check yourself into the loony bin. And you can take these clowns with you. Perhaps the real reason for the ridiculous statements and claims made by these men is due to FINANCIAL INCENTIVES. Every single one of these gold hacks is making money in some way from pumping gold and making gross exaggerations about the U.S. economy. The fact is that they are making false statements and coming to ridiculous conclusions in order to line their pockets with YOUR money. Having no bias is no guarantee that you will be right, but it is something all investors should look for. If you want the facts about gold and silver, hyperinflation and everything else, as well as the insights from one of the world's leading investment minds, we suggest you patch into our research. Of course, the best way to access our investment intelligence is to subscribe to one of our investment newsletters. Newsletter subscriptions come with a complimentary Membership. You will not find this level of insight anywhere else in the world. Here we conclude this 4-part series. See here for Part 3. See here for Part 2. See here for Part 1. As I have detailed in previous articles, I do not consider precious metals to be much of an investment vehicle for a variety of reasons. And with good reason, Warren Buffett and Charles Munger agree with me. For instance when Warren Buffet and Charles Munger have been asked about gold, here is what they have stated. "You could take all the gold that's ever been mined, and it would fill a cube 67 feet in each direction. For what that's worth at current gold prices, you could buy all -- not some -- all of the farmland in the United States. Plus, you could buy 10 Exxon Mobils, plus have $1 trillion of walking-around money. Or you could have a big cube of metal. Which would you take? Which is going to produce more value?" Warren Buffet, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Berkshire Hathaway May 2012 “[Gold] gets dug out of the ground in Africa, or someplace. Then we melt it down, dig another hole, bury it again and pay people to stand around guarding it. It has no utility. Anyone watching from Mars would be scratching their head.” Warren Buffet, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Berkshire Hathaway, July 2012 “Gold is a great thing to sew onto your garments if you’re a Jewish family in Vienna in 1939 but civilized people don’t buy gold – they invest in productive businesses.” Charles Munger, Vice Chairman, Berkshire Hathaway, May 4, 2012
As forecast, gold and silver have continued their bearish retreat. This bearish intermediate-term trend has baffled gold bugs, who were certain these precious metals would skyrocket with the announcement of “unlimited QE3.”
Recently I showed you how CNBC and Yahoo showed no conscious for duping investors to think it's easy to day trade. In order to pull this off, they featured a 16 year old girl, who clearly has no idea what she is doing. We recently discovered that Bloomberg had it's own 16 year old girl it interviewed in order to promote the premise that even kids can invest or trade stocks successfully.
We also have some additional news to report for Dividend Gems subscribers. On February 14, 2013, the same day Berkshire Hathaway announced a huge payday for Dividend Gems subscribers with a buyout offer for Heinz (HNZ) for more than $72/share, Warren Buffett Follows Our Lead on Heinz ... ...shares of another one of our recommended securities were downgraded after management cut the dividend by 26%.
Now, if you have not already read this hatchet job on John Williams, I want to encourage you to do so. After reading it, hopefully you will understand how Williams and the rest of these gold bug clowns have been lying to you.
Most likely, unless you have been following me for some time you won't catch everything depicted by the images in the video below. For those who have been following me, I trust there is no need for narration.
The Snake Oil Salesmen are Out in FULL Force. A Closer look at Peter Schiff, Porter Stansberry, Chris Martenson, Doug Casey, the National Inflation Association and Zero Hedge. As I have been discussing for some time now, the various gold dealers and others who are aligned with these charlatans represent an enormous propaganda machine that has been created specifically for the purpose of scaring unsuspecting and even fearful investors who are out of touch with reality into buying gold for which they charge ridiculous fees.
Yesterday, subscribers of Dividend Gems celebrated the buyout of one of the securities contained in the Dividend Gems Recommended List…Heinz (HNZ) by Berkshire Hathaway and 3G Capital.
Fiscal cliff negotiations turned out to be a disaster. As you will recall, the fiscal cliff referred to automatic expiration of numerous tax breaks and expenditures. It was meant to serve as an economic emergency brake to address medium-term deficit and budget issues in case Washington did not act to alleviate expenditures on its own. Instead of allowing expenditures and tax breaks to expire, Washington essentially abolished the cliff and made a few minor tweaks.
Nearly 96% of large private sector employers (with 50 or more employees) offer health insurance to employees, compared to 36% of small employers. On average, private sector employers cover 74% of premiums for family coverage.
I have been discussing the adverse impact of U.S. trade policy on America’s working and middle-class for several years now. I began this discussion in America’s Financial Apocalypse.
Little has changed since we released the last monthly publication. The global economy continues to weaken. Europe is sinking deeper into recession and even Germany is now most likely headed for a contraction.
Based on the performance of several stocks considered to be very reliant on the outcome of the election, it appeared that Wall Street had determined at least a few weeks ago that President Obama would win the election.
One cannot deny that the chart of the Dow looks impressive since March 2009. This is by no coincidence. A trend of record earnings have combined with record-low Treasury yields and the safe haven status of U.S. assets to keep the market high. But as we have been warning for a year now, earnings continue to weaken.
UPDATED info on Harry "Doomsday" Dent and his SHITTY track record (20014 - 2015): EXPOSED: More Doomsday Charlatans (Agora Financial Pt 1) Harry Dent, Wall Street Investment Bible and Brazilian Real Estate Moron of the Month: Harry Dent (Take 2) Here's the deal folks. CNBC gets these clowns and whores them out for as long as their sucker audience doesn't figure out they're being fed con artists. As a result, charlatans like Dent usually last anywhere between 5 to 10 years. In the process, these media charlatans have been wrong much more than right, but they're also millionaires because they CNBC sheep have bought their books and other trash and some have made the very foolish mistake of sending their money to invest. While Dent has managed to extend his life a bit longer than the typical media charlatan, you shouldn't assume it's been due to a somewhat better track record than the rest of the gorillas they air. It appears that Dent is actually paying certain individuals to get air time on CNBC and other criminal media outlets like Bloomberg. While he keeps pushing his simpleton demographics argument, the stock market keeps going against his predictions. Peter Schiff is in the middle of his media gravy train and he has figured out that you need to milk this sucker for all its worth once you've got the suckers fooled because in the meantime you can make tens of millions selling useless books to them. That is why these clowns come out with at least one book a year. Now, if you want to watch a clown at work, take a look at these videos of Dent.
In this article, you are going to see what has happened to America, what the future holds and who is responsible for the nation's decline.
In this 14-page article, Mike details the inner workings of how the global game is played, explaining the macroeconomic forces that underlie the risks and merits of investing in the U.S. and other world capital markets. Once you read this article, you will understand how the game is played and you will know more about how things works related to the big picture of investing than virtually every person you have seen on TV discuss investments.
For over three decades, proponents of free trade have promised Americans more jobs. This promise has not been kept. Ever since NAFTA was signed into law in 1994, developing nations have been on the receiving end of millions of jobs that have left the U.S. soil. The truth of the matter is that free trade was designed to boost corporate profits. And it has achieved this objective with impressive fashion. Thus, because the wealthiest Americans own large numbers of corporate shares, free trade has also been responsible for the widening wealth and income gap between Americaâ€™s wealthy and working class.
We have released a PDF of the Opening Statement as well as the Employment analysis from the August 2012 Intelligent Investor.
We have released a presentation on the Fiscal Cliff situation first published in the August 2012 Intelligent Investor.
Economists, analysts, policy makers and of course central bankers are always paying attention to the household savings rate data for a variety of reasons. Regardless of the reason for their interest, the end result is the same. Bankers want to do all they can to discourage savings so that consumers will load up on credit, thereby holding them hostage to interest payments.
We do try to remind those of you who still aren’t aware of the FACT that our Chief Investment Strategist, Mike Stathis is the BEST stock market forecaster in the world. His record speaks for itself. Over the past several years, he has successfully predicted the timing and magnitude of more than 90% of all stock market corrections. We don’t know anyone else in the world who can even claim an 80% accuracy rate. Here, we show some excerpts from the market forecasting section in the Intelligent Investor and Market Forecaster, demonstrating that once again, Stathis nailed the most recent correction in both magnitude and timing.
Everywhere you turn, it seems as if the media is feeding you with “experts” who have the next great call to make. Whether from the print or broadcast media, they always position their hand-picked salesmen and Monday morning quarterbacks as “experts.” But are they REALLY experts? Do they have track records that back up this claim? Do real experts spend almost all of their time in marketing activities, or are they grinding things out trying to sort out what is going on? After answering these questions, it should be obvious why these clowns are nothing more than a broken record, spewing the same generic lines over and over for years. These are the same men who have been disastrously wrong. But the media will never point this out because it would diminish the perceived value of its so-called experts. The media has even insisted that many of these professional marketers “predicted the financial crisis.” Of course, this is not true unless warning about a real estate bubble qualifies. In that case, much of Main Street also predicted the financial crisis. The fact is that I remain as the small handful of individuals who truly predicted the financial crisis and economic collapse. In fact, based on my detailed forecasts as found in America’s Financial Apocalypse and Cashing on the Real Estate Bubble, I argue that no one came close to my forecasts. None of the small handful of hedge fund managers who profited from the sub-primes. No one. This is a statement of fact. And if you do not yet realize this, I suggest you get up to speed. And I have even issued a $100,000 challenge open to anyone who can provide sufficient evidence that there is an individual who can merely match my track record. After three years of announcing this bounty, not one person has so much as made a submission. The reason I issued this $100,000 challenge was to prove to everyone that the media focuses more on promoting clowns and shills rather than real experts. And if you happen to be Jewish, you will be at the top of the list of “experts” promoted by the Jewish-controlled media. Peter Schiff serves as a great example.
Among the various mechanisms of fraud carried out by the Jewish Mafia, the one most responsible for the economic decline of the United States has been its exploitative trade policy, otherwise known as free trade. As always, the Jewish Mafia has bought off an army of Gentile puppets to carry out much of its fraud, so as to escape detection. For instance, during the height of the Financial Crisis of 2008, President Bush was instructed by his handlers to denounce protectionism so as to implicitly reinforce the continuation of so-called free trade policy. Sure enough, when Obama entered the White House, rather than restructure free trade as he had promised, he expanded trade into South Korea.
When President Bush was preparing to leave the White House during the peak of the financial crisis, he was instructed by his globalist handlers to preach the “we must guard against protectionism” line so as to reinforce the continuation of the propaganda campaign once Obama entered office. This line was taken directly out of the mandates from the United Nations, International Monetary Fund and other organizations comprising the globalization establishment.
The other day I was alerted to article by a colleague who knew I wouldn’t be able to resist pointing another example of the type of inaccurate and reckless content spewed from CNBC on a daily basis. I have documented the motives and tactics used by CNBC to dup its sheep audience on several occasions. Here is a partial list of articles discussing this criminal network run by the Jewish Mafia.  Remember, CNBC makes its money by selling advertisements. The vast majority of advertisers on CNBC represent the financial industry and publicly traded corporations, so you can imagine whose agendas are served by this criminal network.
What was the best performing stock in the Dow Jones Industrial Average in 2011? We did. We called the top and told investors to sell before shares collapsed.
When it comes to trade policy, monetary policy and foreign policy, both parties always agree. They are going to ship U.S. jobs overseas, allow the Federal Reserve and Wall Street crime syndicate to commit massive fraud, and fight wars for Israel. Regardless who they vote for, Americans always lose. Thus, heading to the voting booth serves no purpose other than to endorse America’s fascist regime. On rare occasion when fraud has been exposed, none of the establishment crime bosses goes to jail. At best, one or two scapegoats are pulled from the bottom of the criminal food chain to serve as the “fall guy.” But even the fall guys come out of the deal shining. In most cases, after a couple of years in club fed, they are rewarded by their colleagues for taking the heat.
The list of accurate forecasts and leading-edge insights presented in Americaâ€™s Financial Apocalypse is too long to list. As an example of the comprehensiveness of this book, we will post an excerpt exposing the for-profit college fraud that has recently become a topic of debate by Washington and others.
During his four years in office, President Obamaâ€™s performance in the employment area has been as bad as one could imagine. Furthermore, he seems to not realize just how bad the situation is. Perhaps Obama has been informed by his advisers that there is really nothing he can do to create jobs because it has been U.S. trade policy that has been responsible for job exportation for many years before he entered office. But to make things worse, Obama expanded trade to South Korea, ensuring more jobs are sent out of U.S. borders.
Did you get in on the gold break out? We did. The following is part of the gold forecast we presented in the August 2012 Intelligent Investor (published on August 6, 2012).
For around two years now, I have been warning about the implosion of Brazil’s economy. These warnings came after I had been recommending Brazilian investments. Those who subscribe to the Intelligent Investor know that Brazil’s economy has imploded just as I forecast. I was able to predict Brazil's implosion because I understand how the banking system works. Those who subscribe to the Intelligent Investor also understand how the game is played. The lesson here is that you cannot latch onto some investment theme and ride it all the way up. Things change. You have to navigate the ups and downs. Someone needs to tell this to Peter Schiff and his EURO PACIFIC Capital (laughing).
We recently added a significant amount of material to our Encyclopedia of Bozos, Hacks, Snake Oil Salesmen and Faux Heroes. This is a publication that will be expanded indefinitely.
A few weeks ago we released a 9-hour video presentation discussing the analysis of 60 stocks we felt had a very good chance of significant price movement. In the video series, we discussed numerous aspects of each security, such as the fundamentals, technical, and possible up- and downside. We also discussed the industry or sector of each security and often mentioned additional securities not contained on this list. Since then most of the securities contained on this list have made very large moves. The chart below shows an example of one of the securities we have been trading. As you can see, since the video presentation was released, in less than 1 month shares have soared.
For nearly three decades, corporations, banks and the ultra-wealthy have reaped financial rewards from America’s bubble economy at the expense of working-class Americans. During this stretch, the majority of the gains from U.S. productivity have been disproportionately distributed to the top income earners. Over the years, these inequities have accumulated into an ever-increasing wealth and income disparity. Although this trend has been apparent for many years, America’s media’s monopoly, establishment economists, politicians and others posing as advocates of Main Street have only recently acknowledged this growing inequality as a problem. That calls into question whether or not these “Monday Morning Quarterbacks” are truly concerned about economic inequality, and whether or not they understand and are willing to move forward with real solutions.
As a result of the financial crisis of 2008, U.S. corporate profits declined to the lowest level on record in the fourth quarter of that year, accounting for only 4.5% of GDP. The collapse in profits led to the largest decline of the S&P 500 Index in any calendar year in history, with investors losing 45.5%. This $8 trillion plunge in wealth wiped out the possibility of retirement for millions of Americans who had already endured a similar stock market meltdown only eight years earlier. This would only be the beginning of much more misery to come. By 2010, U.S. corporate profits mounted a tremendous rebound. By 2011, profits soared to record-highs. Since then, corporate profits have consistently held these levels. This impressive run has been reflected in the strength of the stock market. Could this be a sign of an economic recovery? Here, we examine the data, pointing to exhaustive evidence that America is indeed in the midst of a depression. More important, we explain the major reason accounting for this depression and propose a simple solution.
The U.S. economy added 163,000 jobs in July, beating consensus estimates. This recent data raised the average job additions over the last five months to 106,200. This number is just under the rate required to keep up with population growth. In other words, there has been no net job growth for several months. This compares to a much more impressive monthly rate of 252,000 for the three months from November 2011 to February 2012. In addition, the unemployment rate rose slightly to 8.3% in July from the 8.2% reading from June.
I ran across this piece today. Apparently, the crooks and idiots at CNBC did an interview with the strategist at Nomura.
A few years ago I wrote an article exposing just a few of the thousands of clowns associated with CNBC and Jim Cramer's completely worthless, snake oil investment newsletter websites. Here, we revisit one of these clowns to prove that they had no real business until recently, despite what the perception created by CNBC.
As the United States continues to suffer from the economic disaster created by Wall Street, the â€œexpertsâ€ are once again discussing the possibility of a â€œdouble-dipâ€ recession. This play on words is ludicrous to those of us who realize the recession which began in December of 2007, never ended.
We recently released a detailed article (18 pages) dissecting the methods and tactics of a new scam artist. See here. But we are by no means finished. We plan to continue discussing this guy and others he is linked with in another long and detailed article to be released in the near future. We plan to release more on some other scammers, Chris Martenson and Zero Hedge.
We recently released what we believe is the single most comprehensive and insightful global economic analysis research report in the world.
Today, WellPoint (WLP) announced a $4.46 billion buyout offer for Amerigroup (AGP), causing shares to soar by 38%. Since being added to our recommended list just over two years ago, shares of AGP have soared by 330%.
At the end of May, we released a 6-hour, presenation dividend into 9 different videos discussing the technical and fundamental aspects for 60 securities we thought would make huge moves over the next several weeks-months. In the past, we presented the resullts of those which we happened to notice (we have not had time to follow this list). Here are the latest new winners from this list.
I wanted demonstrate to you that Wall Street research is usually behind the curve, making it more useless than beneficial. If you work in the industry, then you probably already know this. As an example, I am going to discuss Fossil (FOSL). Today, shares of Fossil (FOSL) soared by 32% after beating earnings.
What percentage of the state population is enrolled in a health maintenance organization (HMO)? As you can see, the results vary depending upon the state, ranging from less than 5% in eight states to over 30% in seven states; the national average is 22.5%.
Getting rid of welfare as a solution to Americaâ€™s depression might sound like a counterproductive idea. But letâ€™s take a closer look at why that just might represent the most viable option.
As of August, 16 states have established health insurance exchanges under the Affordable Care Act while seven have decided not to create a state exchange.
The Facebook pump-and-dump scam has played out just as I predicted. After only a couple of months, naive shareholders who feel for this scam have already lost nearly $45 billion as the result of a collapse in the share price of more than 50% from the IPO high of $45.
Investors who purchased our video research presentations continue to rake in HUGE profits.
In my opinion, everything I write about, regardless of the topic ALWAYS offers valuable lessons towards becoming a more sophisticated investor. Sometimes I point out each of these lessons, but many times I simply donâ€™t have the time to.
â€œWhat I am really astonished by is that a news organization like the BBC doesnâ€™t check the sources and itâ€™s willing to publish any picture sent it by anyone: activist, citizen journalist or whatever. Thatâ€™s all,â€ said Di Lauro.
I don’t particularly enjoy boasting about myself, but as you can imagine, being on the media’s black list requires me to serve as my own cheerleader. It’s shocking how the media continues to glorify clowns with poor insight and horrendous track records, positioning these snake oil salesmen as experts. Of course, if you are Jewish, you are granted this luxury.
I have come across something that is very strange. And if it turns out not to be a fluke, it would be a very significant situation. Over the past few weeks I have been unable to access the Iranian government's media agency, Press TV from Starbucks. I have tested this at 4 different Starbucks locations in Dallas many times over the past couple of weeks, including the largest and busiest Starbucks in Texas.
Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) has been one of the hottest stocks over the past few years, having soared by more than 1000% since late 2008. Throughout this time, the chart looked great.
Investors who purchased our video research presentations continue to rake in HUGE profits. The following represents just one example.
We have just released our July 2012 U.S. & Emerging Market, Commodities, Currencies and Precious Metals Forecasts.
â€œgold is a great thing to sew onto your garments if youâ€™re a Jewish family in Vienna in 1939 but civilized people donâ€™t buy gold â€“ they invest in productive businesses.â€
We have received several inquiries recently from investors wondering whether itâ€™s â€œtoo lateâ€ to purchase the video series we have been highlighting because they have seen how we nailed so many of these calls already. Here, we post our response in order to avoid more email inquiries, as our answer is below.
The U.S. economy added just 80,000 jobs in June, bringing the average over the last four months to 92,000. This compares to a monthly rate of 252,000 for the three months from November to February. Meanwhile, U.S. GDP for 2012 Q1 remained at 1.9% after the first phase of revisions. Clearly, GDP is set to fall through 2012 from this very modest growth rate.
Have a look at another stock profiled in the video presentation we have been highlighting. As you can see, shares of SVU collapsed by more than 50% on July 12, 2012 and close down by 49%.
To give you an example of the fact that Mike did not only recommend short positions in what is rapidly becoming legendary video series, here we show an example of another stock that has soared by more than 80% since the series was released just a few weeks ago.
We feel there is another 30-50% downside in this security in coming weeks.
Yesterday we showed you how our calls presented in our special video presentation have continued to yield huge returns. Please take a look. The kills keep coming in. Here is another one for you. JC Penny (JCP).
Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act (ACA), often referred to as Obamacare. Despite the fanfare from the media, most Americans remain distracted by the bipartisan theatrics. In reality the ruling was a non-event. The ACA never offered a solution to begin with because it failed to address the single biggest problem in healthcare; runaway inflation. The fact of the matter is that with or without Obamacare, the U.S. healthcare system will continue to be run like Wall Street because industry lobbyists have bought off Washington officials.
Recently, we discussed the huge move made by ARNA. Have a look. This was just one of 60 securities we profiled in a 9-video (consisting of 9 hours) securities analysis presentation focused on those securities we felt stood the best chance to make huge moves in coming weeks/months.
Where do the most heavily medicated Americans live? What would your guess be? Would it be somewhere like Florida and similar states that have a large percentage of senior citizens?
In order to understand the progression of the economic and political chaos in Greece, one must review several key events from recent years, all while reading between the lines from official statements made by the global banking syndicate and their puppet politicians in both the EU and U.S.
In this reprint from Kaiser Health News, the new healthcare law is explained as it pertains to consumers.
For nearly three years we have been discussing important global macroeconomic trends in order to assess the progress and risks of what has been labeled a global economic â€œrecovery.â€ The illusion accounting for these improvements was created by a global release of trillions of dollars. One of the most prominent characteristics of this â€œrecoveryâ€ is that it has been lop-sided, with advanced nations showing very little progress on many fronts. While Australia and Canada have fared relatively well, the U.S., U.K., Japan and Europe have continued to stall, despite claims made by officials and the media that a recovery is in progress. In contrast, emerging nations have performed particularly well. Asia and much of Latin America experienced a recession of short duration. Brazil spent the shortest time in the recession, followed by China and India. In fact, the emerging world has been largely responsible for pulling up the advanced world from the depths of the financial apocalypse. The entire mechanism has been fueled by the flood of capital from the Federal Reserve.
It seems like every day we hear about some guy making gold and silver price forecasts, and these forecasts are invariably ridiculously high. Some of these hacks insist that gold is headed to $5000; others say $10,000; some even say $20,000. I’ve even heard one clown “predict” $57,000! How about $1500 silver? Sure! Why not!? Maybe if I “forecast” $100,000 gold the media will line up to interview me. Because it is impossible to know in advance whether gold has peaked during its current bull market cycle, we advise gold investors to wait for conservative entry points and take profits according to the technicals, adjusted for fundamental events which are likely to affect gold pricing. ...This point is well-illustrated by the ironic and fitting consequence of the losses suffered by the moron, Gerald Celente from his gold futures trading account held at MF Global. If you are a gold bug then you probably know of Celente. Some of you probably heard about his losses from MF Global because he used the situation as a way to generate more PR for himself. But apparently, the guy is such an idiot that he didn’t realize that this stunt caused him to loss what credibility he had among sheep. Others new he had no credibility to begin with. Despite his claims of being a “trend forecaster,” (which in my opinion as a professional research analyst is a bogus designation) he has been pumped all over the media.
Aren’t some of you out there wondering why, with Europe getting flushed down the toilet, gold has barely moved? The snake oil salesmen are always prepared to spin any line you feed them. For instance, I can already hear them preaching to their prey…“well, gold hasn’t gone up because it’s tied to the dollar and the dollar has gone up.”
June 2012 U.S. and Emerging Equities Market, Commodities, Foreign Currencies and Precious Metals forecasts released.
As many of you recall, more than a year ago I wrote an article questioning what I felt to be exaggerated, baseless and sensationalist viewpoints and conclusions about the U.S. economy, gold and hyperinflation written by John Williams of Shadowstats.
The year 2001 is likely to be very memorable to most people for different reasons. For many people, the year 2001 brings back memories of the attack on the World Trade Center by the Mossad and CIA. The collapse of the stock market immediately after this catastrophic act of domestic and foreign terrorism was an extremely easy call to make despite the fact that the jug heads and crooks on CNBC were telling their sheep audience not to sell. That year was also memorable to me because it was the year I recognized the early stages of the gold bull market.
Apparently, JewTube enjoys allowing people to infringe on copyright so that it can make money illegally, similar to its parent company Google, which permits millions of of people who sell Google ads to use copyright protected material. However, when it comes to stating facts about the Jewish Mafia, JewTube won't permit it; it's considered a violation of its hate speech policy.
There's not much to say about this other than what the headline reads. And to be honest, I don't have time right now to write about it. But I wanted to go on record exposing this fact which I have been aware of since the very beginning. Maybe I'll go over how I discovered that the OWS Movement is run by Jews another time.
Next week we plan to release a special video presentation highlighting approximately 60 securities we think will be poised to deliver outstanding returns, IF you know when and at what price to enter. Since we conducted this analysis 4 weeks ago, some of these stocks have already returned up to 90%. We feel there are many additional trading opportunities ahead, not only for those stocks that have not made their moves, but for those that already have.
In The November 2010 issue of the Intelligent Investor, we listed 25 stocks with high short interest that we felt were of interest. These stocks were not necessarily those with the highest short interest, rather they stood out as potential candidates for big moves in coming months for a variety of reasons.
Here, we provide readers with a glimpse of our market forecasts between February and April 2012 demonstrating once again that we are the best market forecasters in the world. As many of you recall, our Chief Investment Strategist, Mike Stathis accurately forecast a bottom in the Dow Jones Industrial Average to around 6000 in his 2006 landmark book, America’s Financial Apocalypse.
We have just released twenty (20) videos, each covering the fundamental and technical analysis of a select list of securities. The theme of this research focus is stocks trading over $100.
The first video focuses primarily on the Rothschild-Illuminati-Free Masonry connection. Before you watch it, I wanted to make a few points. First, in my personal view, the Rothschilds are not very significant these days. Rather, the heads of the major central banks and corporations are much more powerful. These individuals are much more powerful than political leaders. In reality, all politicians are puppets of the Jewish mafia. This relationship enables them to rule the people from the sidelines through politicians who can relate better to the voters. Bush did it by promoting Christianity. Meanwhile, he became the first president to initiate a Holocaust celebration in the White House, which continues every year to this day.
Home ownership has been a vital component of Washingtonâ€™s economic strategy for decades. The marketing end of this strategy has positioned home ownership as a key element of the so-called â€œAmerican Dream.â€ For millions of Americans who are under water with their mortgage, facing foreclosure or in one of many stages of default, home ownership has become an â€œAmerican Nightmare,â€ riddled with a variety of caveats ranging from millions of foreclosures, the poor effect and other undesirable consequences.
In this report, we analyze Canada's economic health, its long-term fiscal challenges and examine whether the nation is experiencing a real estate bubble. In this part of the discussion, we dissect the inner workings of the Canadian real estate finance sector, pointing to striking differences and similarities with the U.S. Finally, we discuss the risks of an economic slowdown that could pose as a challenge for Canada, independent of shocks to the euro zone, as well as from a slowdown in the commodities sector.
In past issues of this publication we have discussed numerous variables we look at when forecasting the market. Our work in market forecasting is but one component of the design and implementation of a prudent investment strategy.
At AVA Investment Analytics, we cover a very large number of securities; many more securities than the 65 or so that we provide trading guidance for in our newsletters. The key to our success is knowing several companies well enough to know when to buy and well to sell. We also determine the probability of each security to hit/miss/beat earnings estimates.
Today marks the three-year anniversary since the market bottomed on March 9, 2009. Since that time, the market is up by around 100%.
Without drawing this out into a long piece, we wanted to remind everyone of a few realities which we will summarize below. If you have someone handling your investments, you had better damn well make sure they are following someone who knows what's going on.
In the past I have mentioned that 99% of all hedge funds engage in insider trading. I happen to know this for a fact.
Based on my knowledge of the valuation process, in almost every case the valuations attributed to Facebook have been ridiculously inflated at the time each was made. These valuations were fudged by those who have invested capital in Facebook so they can become instant billionaires once shares hit the market. In this process, the money from naive Main Street investors will be sucked into the pockets of Facebook venture investors once the shares trade in the public market.
In this piece I will not discuss whether or to what extent the capital markets deliver what they promise. Instead, I will discuss the fraud involved in the IPO market.
Careful observers can spot numerous examples of Jewish control, fraud and deceit everywhere they look. These deviant activities are widespread throughout Wall Street, the banking industry, the media, corporate America and the federal government.
One of the faster growing ad firms is called Ad Choices, which is run by Turner Broadcasting. Ad Choices is frequently used on many sites, including Yahoo! for instance.
Here, I discuss how Wall Street and the media have engineered a pump-and-dump scheme in order to steal billions of dollars from unsuspecting investors. I will also discuss how the media promotes Jews as a way to enrich them while neglecting its perceived role as a provider of unbiased and credible insight.
The Jewish mafia has designed countless ways to steal from gentiles. And they won’t hesitate using these methods on other Jews as long as money is involved.
When Facebook began it didn’t have any advertisements. Similar to most small companies which embrace the capitalist growth model, Facebook changed from serving its users to serving corporations.
In many ways, the social media craze really isn’t much different than its trash TV counterpart...
Several months ago, I wrote a short piece discussing what I believed to be illegal business practices used by LinkedIn.
Just released for subscribers of the Intelligent Investor is a 30-minute video presentation discussing the risks of an additional housing market correction, as well as the risks posed to the global financial system by a meltdown in UK's banking system.
It took quite a long time for Washington to finally concede something that was apparent; the nation’s excessively high unemployment rate would remain elevated for several years. But their admission has come with a twist.
In the past, I have discussed that Porter Stansberry made numerous false claims in his snake oil video, The End of America. The video is so full of crap that I cannot watch it to remind myself of the details. I do recall that Stansberry claims that his "research" firm is one of the largest in the world and other BS to make himself seem credible. Make no mistake. Stansberry runs a boiler room newsletter service in the same manner as everyone else in that industry. There are no exceptions.
In this 23-minute video, Mike discusses ways to play the AT&T/T-Mobile deal, and summarizes the business fundamentals of Sprint, Clearwire, MetroPCS, Leap Wireless, offering actionable investment and trading recommendations for each.
We have just released an investment strategy video tutorial for subscribers to Dividend Gems. In this video, Mike discusses some unique perspectives that can be implemented into one's investment strategy, using examples of two securities from the Dividend Gems Recommended Securities List.
As a reminder, we released an economic analysis of Italy, France, Japan and the US in the October Global Economic Analysis research report.
According to the U.S. Census, in the first quarter of 2010, nearly half of the population (48.5%) lived in a household that had at least one member who received some kind of government benefit.
As the sovereign debt crisis continues to worsen due in large part to incompetent leadership, more attention is being given to France.
While we have certainly seen commonalities such as high unemployment, reduced output, and fiscal stress, the economic collapse has also forced the leaders of each nation to take a good look at their nationâ€™s strengths and weaknesses. The case of Italy has revealed a great deal.
The incompetency of Washington was most recently demonstrated by the debt ceiling drama. Now the dog-and-pony show staged by the ECB, EU and IMF has added to waning consumer and investor sentiment across the globe to create a crisis in confidence.
Max Keiser, Alex Jones and their stooges are laughing all the way to the bank with your money.
...virtually every so-called think tank in the U.S. is run and/or funded by Jews and Jewish money. This remains a well-guarded secret hidden from the naive and unsuspicious public eye in the U.S.
Surely by now many of you recall that Mike Stathis, our Chief Investment Strategist had warned of a Dow 6500 in the 2006 release of America’s Financial Apocalypse.
We have completed the website for the Wall Street Investment Bible. This site contains a good deal of introductory chapter excerpts from this very comprehensive, unique and informative text.
I wanted to briefly address this hack, Bob Chapman.
For nearly two years now, Mike has wanted to write a follow up article on Washington Mutual, pointing to the gross missteps by very naive shareholders.
Last week, we showed how the Dividend Gems Recommended Securities List was holding up through the current market correction, from the time the May issue was released, through June 2. The performance of our Dividend Gems was quite good, as it has been since the newsletter was released in February 2011. Letâ€™s have a look.
Yesterday, President Obama announced his nomination of Alan Krueger to serve as Chairman of his Council of Economic Advisers. Thus far, this council has been nothing short of an abject failure. Thus, you should already know what to expect from Krueger, another Jewish academic from the Clinton administration.
On April 5 before the U.S. market opened, we released the monthly issue of the Intelligent Investor; about 70 pages discussing everything from domestic and global economics, to currency, gold, silver, oil, natural gas, emerging markets and U.S. market forecasts.
What is you knew when to sell the stock market in May and when to buy it back? If you knew this information, you wouldn't even need to know a thing about securities. All you would need to do is sell when you were told and buy when you were told, right? Even a dummy could have made easy money in a short period.
I write today to tell you how much I have learned from reading so many of your current - and past - articles and book excerpts on the website that you have so generously made available at no cost. As an example, your writings have opened my eyes to much of what I had suspected, but never really knew, of the mainstream media. L.B. Bloomington, IN
Mr. Mike Stathis, Thanks for your herculean efforts and your truthful, insightful analysis. This is the best newsletter ever and thank you for letting me subscribe. It's very difficult for a regular individual to see through the intricate media traps until you have an expert show you that initial light. Read America's Financial Apocalypse people. No one wrote a book like this before the collapse. Mike N. NYC
Just to let you know that your newsletter is the *best* financial info around. I really look forward to every issue. Sincerely, W. K. MB, CANADA
Thanks for the great August newsletter! Excellent value. The mix of details and big picture is just what I'm looking for. I'm glad I signed up! Also great the financials were covered; that was my number one question a month ago! O. B. Berlin, Germany
Wow.This newsletter update was extremely helpful. The brief comments on how Mr Stathis sees recent news was just what I was hoping to hear! Also, the interpretation of the Feb 23 report was very reassuring. Thank you!
The newsletter is priceless. I've never come across anything with anywhere near this level of depth and insight! I've subscribed to dozens of newsletters in the past and none of them even come close to yours. After reading America's Financial Apocalypse, I can't say I'm surprised. B. F. San Diego, CA
Dear Mr Stathis: Each newsletter issue an incredible work in itself. The time that you put in assembling the research is amazing. Each issue has given me confidence that if you work hard and apply yourself, you can turn the advantages in your favor. Thank you for laying out that path. You are a true visionary investor.
Dear Mike, Your newsletter has been invaluable to me. You've been so right about so many things it's scary. But the best thing is that it's taught me so much about how to become a much better investor. Thanks so much for your work. Sincerely, Dave
My Investment IQ has improved immensely since subscribing to your newsletter. Briefly, I've learned more about risk and how to measure it. I've also practiced better asset allocation, significantly lightened up on mutual funds, and am better able to evaluate beaten up stocks for opportunities. Finally, I have acted on a few of your stock selections and the results have covered the cost of your newsletter. Thanks for all you do. David
I just want to say thank you to Mike. I have learned a tremendous amount from the website, the newsletters & all his books. I used to work for a fund company in Chicago and was surrounded by numerous "experts" that were on TV and quoted in Barrons & the WSJ all the time and it amazes me how much more ahead of the curve Mike has been. He truly is a master of his craft, a true expert. J. H.
The quick notes you sent to subscribers, alerting us to the bumps in the road on the way to DJIA 10,500 were perfect. And you were spot on, especially in your forecasting- and wisdom- based prescription to get out by close of this week.
Hi Mike! I'm really excited to read your newsletters. I just received your book last night, "The Wall Street Investment Bible" AMAZING STUFF already! (just at chap 3.) M. G.
I have read Mr. Stathis book "America's financial Apocalypse" and have been a follower of Mr Stathis since then as to the many predictions that he made came true. I only wish I had read it much earlier. N. F. Houston, TX
Thank you so much for opening my eyes again to seek the truth. As always, "Satyamey Jayatey" - The truth always prevails. May God give you strength to show the truth to everyone as this is the only way to end misery, hunger, hate and destruction on oneself. Thanks again. V. P.
I've been reading Mike's articles and the Apocalypse book starting in July last year. And I lost a large part of my life savings by NOT listening to what Mike has been saying. I heard Mike in an interview in August 2007, saying to get into cash, but I was still stuck on the idea of "buy and hold" for the long run etc. I also bought the logic that it is important to pick a strategy and stick with it, so down I went with the averages... S.C.
I subscribe to several investment newsletters, but the information you make available for free is much more in depth and practical, so naturally I'm going to subscribe to the newsletter. Thank you, Don
When is the investment bible being re-released?? I just want to learn investing from the best, and Stathis knows damn well his book is the best out there. Thanks, John
Mike, Just a note of thanks for your passion, honesty, and dedication to what you're doing --- you're educating the heck out of me and I appreciate it immensely! Best, Joe
Mike, Your website and advice that I've read in your newsletters are impressive. Additionally, you are clearly a patriot, and care about America. H. B. Lansing, NY
Mr. Stathis I just finished reading some info on your website. All I can say is I'm so glad I found you. Thanks for being there, James
I am enjoying your newsletter tremendously and am finding myself more knowledgeable thanks to your efforts. I have found your 2006 book "America's Financial Apocalypse" extremely valuable and would like to know when you will be coming out with your next book addressing the same topic. S. A.
Mr. Stathis, After following your articles and reading your books, noting your predictions and insights, I believe you are the top mind in the investment world. Marc
Mr. Stathis, I have read AFA and you seem to have a monopoly on accurate information. That said, thank you so much for everything you have written. My undergrad business classes are a strikingly poor substitute. Thank you for your time, A. W.
Hey Mike, Great call with ***!! It has paid for my subscription! Your recent market timing announcement has been spot on as well. Excellent value. The mix of details and big picture is just what I'm looking for. Also great the financials were covered; that was my number one question a month ago! Mr. Stathis, thank you! William
Hi guys I really love your newsletter, not just the money it makes me, but also the economical and financial information that is really an eye-opener for many of us. I'd like to lock in my subscription to the Intelligent Investor at the current rate. How do I do that? Best wishes S.
Mike is simply brilliant! I have worked in financial industry for years and have not seen this level of talent. Christine F.
I have learned more from this website and the 2012 Mid-Year Global Economics Report I purchased than I have learned all together so far at (well-known U.S. business and economics school), for a fraction of the cost. O.A.
One of the themes I have been emphasizing over the past few years focuses on the destruction of the U.S. economy and control over the political system by lobbyist groups.
How much more will the stock market decline? Should you sell? When should you buy?
First, they made huge commissions loaning you money to buy overpriced real estate. They convinced you that real estate â€œis a great investment,â€ and â€œproperty values never go down.â€ Of course, both statements are completely inaccurate, as I first detailed in the 2006 release of America's Financial Apocalypse.
Approximately three months weeks ago the U.S. markets began to correct. We warned about this first correction in the May issue of our firms paid research publications.
Over the past several days, I'm sure you've heard your fair share of debate regarding the recent downgrade of U.S. debt by Standard & Poor's. I have personally avoided this noise. However, I inadvertently ran across some comments by some clown on CNBC that I wanted to show you. According to this guy, U.S. debt should be rated as junk bonds. You’ll hear the same ludicrous statement from Peter Schiff, Mark Faber, Jim Rogers, and the rest of the clowns. Before you click the video link below, I want you to notice the commercial before the video. This guy from Schwab reminds me of one of those infomercial scam artists who tell you they can teach you to trade stocks using a computer program.
Over the past several weeks, the media has had a field day covering the debt ceiling talks between both political parties. Itâ€™s been dominates news headlines for more than a month. Prior to the latest distraction by the media, the focus was Casey Anthony, followed by Congressman Weiner, then Casey Anthony again.
By now, most of you have heard about AT&T's buyout offer of Deutsche Telekom T-Mobile. The deal, totaling $39/$40 billion would add nearly 40 million wireless subscribers to AT&T for total of around 129 million, vaulting it past Verizon Wireless' 102 million. The combined company would serve about 43 percent of U.S. cellphones.
Below we have posted the most recent revisions to economic data, including estimates through 2011 (Japan and Spain) and 2012 (U.S. and China). It will be interesting to see when the IMF decides to issue more accurate economic projections that are in-line with reality.
For comic relief, we decided to post a brief piece on a couple of idiots from CNBC. One, Macke is now on Yahoo's Breakout (formerly Tech Ticker). We have previously exposed the realities of this basement room media firm, run by the infamous Henry Blodget.
I have no need to write about what has been stated by the lady in this video. If you can't figure it out after listening to her, I suggest you start using your brain.
I always suspected something just wasn't right about Paul Craig Roberts. After all, he was inducted into the political environment under Reagan, as a junior Treasury staff member. Next, he was a former editor and columnist for the Wall Street Journal.
I have discussed the fact that the recession which officially began in December 2007, has not yet ended. Anyone who claims otherwise is either a hack or else has no idea what is going on.
Over the past few months I have been discussing my view that Wall Street analysts and economists, and global economic consortiums such as the IMF have been underestimating the impact of the earthquakes, tsunami and nuclear meltdown, as well the spillover effect.
As the market has sold off over the past month, the Dividend Gems Recommended List has once again outperformed. Below are charts representing EVERY security in the Dividend Gems Recommended List so you can see the entire performance, not cherry-picked data.
The media continues to utilize countless tactics designed to heighten public perception regarding the critical need to advance Americaâ€™s war on terror. We see this on a daily basis.
Over the weekend, a group of individuals decided to demonstrate just how bad the Police State has progressed in the U.S. So, they paid a visit to the Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC, and began dancing.
Vermont recently announced it will move forward with its own universal healthcare system.
In the very first issue of the Intelligent Investor (June 2009), I discussed problems in Europe that became a reality several months later.
While checking our web hosting admin panel, a staff member spotted some hits to our site from Zero Hedge linking to one of the articles I had written about Harry Dent. Of course, the link was posted by one of the commenters, as opposed to Zero Hedge. The last thing the deceptive hacks at Zero Hedge would want to do is make any mention of me or anyone else with credibility they fear would expose their deceit and trickery.
According to estimates from the CEPR, Ryan's proposal to essentially gut Medicare will save the government $4.9 trillion from 2022 to 2084. However, costs of private coverage shifted to beneficiaries would add an additional $34 trillion more than what would be paid under traditional Medicare.
A week ago, I alerted readers to what I felt was as close to a sure thing as possible when discussing the downside to LDK. Those who decided to call in for trading guidance landed a huge score with gains of about 25%.
To give you an idea of the type of scum aligned with the globalist push to enslave people through further corporatization and policies which empower banks, all while robbing citizens of promised benefits which they have already funded, one need look no further than the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
The Jewish-run media monopoly continues to leverage the recent bin Laden murder as a victory for America and President Obama. But bin Laden had nothing to do with 9-11. Most likely, he died several years ago.
I wanted to mention a stock that has a good chance of a large move over the next few weeks, if not sooner.
Two years ago, the US Mint announced that it would discontinue production Gold Eagle coins. Perhaps this was due to waning demand, as gold was approaching $1000/ounce.
As many have noticed, silver has collapsed from a recent multi-year high of more than $48/ounce. In just a few days of trading, silver has dropped by nearly 30%. What has triggered this massive selloff?
Update on Dent (April 25, 2015): Check out this new video on Dent, showing his terrible track record Broken Clock Moron Of The Month: Harry Dent Last time I discussed another member of the media club, Harry Dent. I basically demonstrated how Dent is no different than the other experts praised by the financial media. The previous article can be found here. Here, I continue with a review of Dent's track record. As you will see, similar to the other so-called experts promoted by the media, Dent's expertise lies more in marketing than in market forecasting. Just have a look at one of Dent's marketing pictures shown below. It looks like he commissioned the William Morris Agency to put this together. This is pure marketing, created to drive the perception that this man can make you rich. But there is much more to Dent and his business plan.
We wanted to take this opportunity to remind you about our newest investment newsletter, Dividend Gems.
UPDATED info on Harry "Doomsday" Dent and his SHITTY track record (20014 - 2015): EXPOSED: More Doomsday Charlatans (Agora Financial Pt 1) Harry Dent, Wall Street Investment Bible and Brazilian Real Estate Moron of the Month: Harry Dent (Take 2) In the past, I have discussed the many ways the media deceives, spins and even lies about financial information as a way to please its financial sponsors, all while creating drama so as to captivate its sheep audience. The goal of the media is two-fold. First, the media has to establish a large audience because the size of the audience determines the amount they charge companies that pay for sponsorships and advertisements. Second, the media has to make sure to keep its corporate sponsors happy. This goes well-beyond airing the ads companies have paid for. Since corporate America and Wall Street buy the vast majority of ads and sponsor all sorts of shows, events and programming segments, the media always slants things in the favor of corporate America and the financial industry. For drug companies, this means the media will downplay the dangers of prescription drugs or air news on harmful side effects in ways that are deemphasized. The delivery of the propaganda is finessed so as to not alert the audience that the media sleeps in the same bed as those who buy the ads. When it comes to the financial media, the agendas are less conspicuous for those who have not been induced into a mild hypnotic trance. Unfortunately, the media uses countless tactics to induce this mild state of consciousness in its unsuspecting audience. The unique thing about the financial media is that it extends throughout the entire media monopoly. For instance, when CBS or ABC reports on the stock market, the economy and other issues they draw upon reports or even journalists from CNBC or the Wall Street Journal. As well, all major television networks, radio stations, newspapers, periodicals and websites have formed partnerships with financial media programs. The game is simple. The financial media creates the perception of valuable programming so as to attract its audience. Financial and economic news is reported in variable degrees in order to ensure the goals of the sponsors have been met. Sometimes this results in reporting knee-jerk events, exaggerations, distractions, and other techniques. Other times the reporting is more focused but highly deceptive. Among some of the more common strategies used are flooding, censorship, stacked decks. The media is controlled both by corporate America and Washington. Thus, the media provides much more detriment than value. The financial media seeks to create panic and fear, mania and confusion, all while spinning, lying and censoring so that its sponsors feel like their money has been well-spent. As a result, Main Street tends to act on impulse so as to trade more frequently, most often with confusion and misdirection. This benefits E-Trade, Charles Schwab, Ameritrade and other online brokerage firms. And because these investors are acting out of emotion, misinformation and deception, Wall Street is pleased because it allows them to more easily take the money of Main Street. Other times, mutual funds and insurance companies are propped up by the slanted opinions of the financial commentators or fund analysts. This provides the opportunity for front running by both Wall Street and individuals connected to the media, whether through their friend, relatives or others within their syndicate. These acts of securities fraud occur on a daily basis and add a sizable portion to the massive skimming and other fraudulent activities that steal billions of dollars from Main Street daily. The media will never discuss how fund companies stick their customers with exorbitant fees, nor will you hear how many of the fees are hidden. Finally, the media will never point out the fact that equity mutual funds are the absolute worst investment to have during a bear market, as this would upset the companies that spend billions of dollars advertising on these networks. When the media interviews professionals from the financial industry, more often than not these individuals serve as marketers with terrible track records. You certainly wouldn’t come to that conclusion based on their introduction. TV journalists hype up each of their pitch men to ensure they are perceived as credible experts so you will see value in tuning in. It is a very rare event when the media bothers to independently verify the track record of its guests. Instead, the TV journalist reads their bios as if everything that has been written is true. After all, it’s not in the best interest of journalists to uncover lies and exaggerations made by those selected to serve as members of the financial media club. Over the past couple of years I have exposed the reality behind several individuals who have been positioned by the financial media as experts. If the media claims some guy predicted the financial crisis, then by God they must have according to the sheep. Main Street acts inherently naïve as they automatically associate media exposure with credibility instead of spending adequate time to verify track records and look for bias and agendas. The reputation of these hacks spreads like a virus. The more they are seen and heard, the more Main Street attaches credibility to their views. Before you know it, everyone thinks Meredith Whitney, Nouriel Roubini, Marc Faber, Robert Shiller, Peter Schiff, Harry Dent, Robert Prechter, Martin Weiss and countless others predicted the financial crisis. More Ridiculous Market Predictions from Dent Today I wanted to mention another individual who has been positioned by the media as a credible expert despite his dreadful track record. Perhaps you have heard of Harry Dent. Like the vast majority of this crew of mass marketers, Dent serves as a much better contrarian indicator than anything else. Like others in the media club, Dent knows how to tell a good story. Combined with media status, Dent has been successful in terms of selling his books and newsletters. However, his track record has been another story. As you will see, similar to the other so-called experts who regularly appear in the media, Dent is a professional marketer and speaker, not a credible economist or investment expert. Remember, real experts don’t spending most of their time giving media interviews, hitting the speaking circuit, making YouTube videos, and other marketing activities. These tasks are the focus of individuals like Robert Kiyosaki and Tony Robbins. But they are also the focus of Harry Dent, Peter Schiff and the others. A few weeks ago, Harry Dent came out in the media with warnings of a coming market collapse over the next few months. Below I summarize Dent’s “predictions.” The stock market could top 13,200 by late summer then collapse to 3000. Oil and gold have already topped out and are headed down. Real estate will go down by 50-60%. Before I demonstrate how Dent is no different than the rest of the marketers who have been positioned as experts, let’s have a look at these “latest predictions.”
This article represents the first in a series that will discuss the realities about Robert Prechter and his track record. In this article I am going to show you a recent interview given by Prechter on Tech Ticker.
The PPI rose 1.6% in February, well above the consensus of 0.7%. The bulk of the upside surprise was due to a 3.9% jump in food prices. Notably, the increase in food prices was partly reflected a 48.7% surge in vegetables, which accounts for about 4% of the food index. It should be with little doubt that food prices will continue to increase globally over the next several months.
If I hired a full-time staff of 100 financial professionals specifically dedicated to the task of calling out all of the media’s so-called financial experts (largely comprised of lifelong snake oil salesmen and Wall Street hacks), pointing to their miserable track records, while setting the record straight on their exaggerations, drama-filled statements, bias, agendas, cheerleading and apocalyptic predictions, we would be unable to address even one-tenth of the propaganda that continues to invade the minds of Americans.
Right now I'm focusing on two central bank decisions remaining for this week. The first and most important in my view is that from Brazil. Last week, discussions centered around a 75bp hike. Recall that Brazil raised rates by 50bp just a few weeks ago.
We just released another update to subscribers of the Intelligent Investor and Market Forecaster newsletters. This 15-page document discusses the implications of numerous recently announced global economic data and news. It also provides an update to the commodities section covered in the February issue of the Intelligent Investor.
As many of you know, I do not normally respond to or discuss daily news bits because in most cases it's just noise unless you are a day trader. And if that's the case, my advice to you is to take your money to Vegas instead, as your odds will be better and you will have a much better time.
In the vast majority of cases, news stories are centered on hidden agendas that come from the top of the organization. Often, when the hidden message or twist on facts is meant to assist the agendas of America's fascist government, the orders are sent from a PR official at the White House. When the deceit is meant to help the agendas of the corporate side of Americaâ€™s fascist government, the orders come from corporate executives themselves.
Recently, I reminded readers of a very lucrative (and what I felt was a very obvious) long-short equity strategy I discussed that would have yielded huge returns to those who opted to take on this risky maneuver.
If investors had acted on my analysis, they would have not only avoided holding a stock that would later file for bankruptcy protection, they would have also made huge gains through the long-short strategy I recommended using Netflix and Blockbuster.
If you look around on the various gold bug web sites, you are likely to see the same crowd posting the same lines of hyperinflation and everything else they can conjure up in order to scare people into loading up on excessive amounts of physical gold. Note the emphasis on “physical gold” rather than gold ETFs.
As many of you will recall, I recently discussed the ridiculous valuation of Facebook by Goldman Sachs, designed to dump off pumped up shares to naive and greedy investors. Recently, I ran across an article whereby some clown made a ridiculous case for an eventual $100 billion valuation for this social "networking" website. I didn't bother to waste my time tearing apart this article because the claims made by the author accomplish this task sufficiently.
While still working on Wall Street, I began recommending gold in late 2001 to my clients just when the bull market had commenced. As you might imagine, it was very difficult to convince older investors that gold was beginning to enter a bull market after it had done nothing for nearly two decades.
A couple of days ago I showed you how a stock I had been in and out of for over a year had performed since recommending another entry point in the January 2011 newsletter.
Today, the Brazil's central bank is likely to raise its key interest rate, the SELIC as discussed in the January newsletter. Analysts estimate a 50 basis point hike. If this occurs, it will place short-term rates at 11.25%.
As many of you know, I don't watch much television because I value my brain cells. Plus, I can't stand constant lies from the media, nor can I stand trash TV, because that too melts one's brain. However, I do watch college and professional sports. Specifically, with rare exception I only watch television for college football and basketball and professional football, but never the useless NBA which resembles "professional" wrestling.
With a good deal of help from traditional media, the social media fad has grown into a worldwide phenomenon for millions who seem to have too much time on their hands. Many claim they use these sites to keep up with friends and relatives. But level-headed individuals use more direct means to keep up with loved ones. Many others are looking for love, or just an easy way to get sex, from whatever form it may come.
In support of their claims of an economic recovery, Washington cheerleaders and Wall Street hacks continue to focus on ancillary metrics like GDP and corporate profits, all while fudging inflation data.
Ever since the summer of 2009, economists from both Washington and Wall Street have told us that an economic recovery was in progress, but the data reveals a strikingly different picture. Some even insisted that a recovery began in late spring.
As those who have been following me for some time know, I place a big focus on reminding readers about the media. So for those of you who are new to this site, I want to warn you about the media because many people have been brainwashed to believe the trash thatâ€™s been plastered on TV, the radio and print media. And I will tell you right now that 99% of what you have heard from the media (TV, radio, print and Internet) is complete BS.
Over the past few months we have heard about a variety of questionable practices from banks looking to seize the homes due to chronic mortgage delinquencies. Each day more drama is added to the picture. It has become the center of focus for many media hacks who want to exploit the frustration and anger they have with Wall Street and Washington.
I continue where I left off from Part 1. So letâ€™s have a look at more of Obamaâ€™s Jewish appointees.
â€œThe great majority of the Senate of the United States...somewhere around 80 percent...are completely in support of Israel, anything Israel wants. This has been demonstrated time and again, and this has made it difficult."
â€œRegarding the Great Depression. Youâ€™re right, we did it. Weâ€™re very sorry. But thanks to you, we wonâ€™t do it again.â€
I have presented this information for you to keep so that he next time someone calls you an anti-Semite for saying Jews run the world's banking system, you can back up your claims with facts.
I want to alert you to the latest scam being led by the biggest opportunities, liars and censoring scumbags in the world today. As a manner by which to boost their own swollen bank accounts, disinfo agents Alex Jones and Max Keiser have been promoting a campaign get sheep across the globe to buy silver with the (ridiculous) intent to crush JP Morgan.
Back in early 2007, very few pundits gave Obama a chance in the 2008 Democratic presidential race. At the time, Hilary Clinton and others were front runners. But things would soon change.
Mike has been targeted by WikiLeaks because of his highly successful proprietary trading methodologies which have successfully predicted and timed the stock market collapse down to a few hundred points, the collapse and bailout of Fannie and Freddie even before the real estate bubble popped, and many other forecasts that have made his readers a boat load of money.
While more than five months have passed since the release of this report, it has been published to demonstrate that real forecasts and accurate insight does not change from day-to-day, week-to-week, or month-to-month.
A few months ago, I ran across a typical propaganda piece from Americaâ€™s corporate media discussing why U.S. corporations arenâ€™t hiring.
I want to be crystal clear about things. What I am about to discuss has been stated in bits and pieces in the past in some of my previous articles. Here I want to bring things together so that you understand the big picture. And I want to do this by providing you with hand-selected videos that demonstrate these ideas.
In Americaâ€™s Financial Apocalypse, a book that has been banned by the media, I discussed the many flaws in the calculation of poverty levels within the U.S. First, letâ€™s have a look at some excerpts from the book.
I laugh when I hear these ridiculous estimates of Facebook being worth $10 to $15 billion. It's ridiculous. It's not a real business. It has no competitive advantage. It has no original content. It's merely a fad, and a useless one at that. It's a website. It's complete garbage. The only reason it's been successful is due to the lack of real competitors, as well as a herding effect.
The more time you spend research things for yourself with an open mind, the more pissed off you are likely to become after realizing that in fact you have been had. The Jewish mafia does indeed control America, and they are raping you day by day.
Those who read Americaâ€™s Financial Apocalypse might recall I discussed the problem of immigrants failing to integrate into U.S. society. This is just one of hundreds of prophetic conclusions made in this book.
Buy you ask? Yes. Not stocks, unless you’re talking about oil. And unless you’re the best of the best of traders you’ll probably want to buy the oil trusts, but only if you b...
Before I discuss possibilities of deflation, I wanted to summarize my argument as to why hyperinflation isn’t going to happen in the U.S., as well as the underlying motives behind this myth. I also wanted to address the motive behind the NBER’s recent announcement that the recession ended in June 2009.
I want to warn those of you who have accounts with Charles Schwab to close your accounts immediately. The situation involves errors in order entry for which Schwab refuses to acknowledge or correct.
In the past, I've discussed how Americans should be taking notes as they watch Europeans resist the various austerity measures and other forms of control enacted by the oligarchs.
I ran across one of these "How to Make Tons of Money With No Money and Minimal Effort" BS propaganda pieces, so I thought I'd show you just how naive people are.
Apparently, the use of scare tactics works well for a population whose minds have been hijacked by the corporate-controlled media establishment. For instance, a few years ago, President Bush and his neo-con clan used the WMD scare tactic in order to justify the invasion of Iraq. More scare tactics were used to pass the unconstitutional Patriot Act.
Each month, the media lines up to read the results of the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices. This group of indices are generated and published by Standard & Poor's and Fiserv Inc. Keep in mind that these indices are maintained by the Index Committee members drawn from Standard & Poor's, Fiserv CSW, and so-called â€œleading industry experts.â€
You might recall an article I wrote a few month ago, discussing ridiculous terminology that has been embraced by every sheep on earth; double-dip recession.
Why in America is it only discrimination if it's a white person doing or saying something against another race?Â

Did you get a raise in 2009? CEOs of the nation’s largest health insurers most certainly did; CIGNA, UnitedHealth, Humana and Wellpoint. In fact, as a reward for many years of excessive hikes to insurance premiums executed under his leadership, Edward Hanway, the former CEO of CIGNA was provided with a retirement package worth $110.9 million, paid for by the excessive and unnecessarily high insurance premiums billed to CIGNA’s policy holders. Excessive premium hikes from U.S. health insurers are an industry-wide problem and have been for well over a decade. Rather than real competition, the industry engages in collusion with territorial monopolies and duopolies.

For more than two years now, many Americans have heard warnings of hyperinflation from the large consensus of misguided individuals, whose agendas serve as the basis for their ridiculous claims. Much of this nonsense has come from the gold bugs and perma-bears, although it is often difficult to distinguish between the two. Sprouting from this group of fear-mongers is a larger number of naïve followers whose mission is to also be inducted into the media club, while they too profit from selling gold ads and other financial arrangements made with gold dealers.

Previously, I discussed the trend of massive healthcare inflation which has not been addressed by healthcare reform. I mentioned that insurance premiums would rise to account for new taxes and other provisions of the law. But rather than employers being left out to dry, I discussed that they would simply pass higher costs onto employees in the form of higher premiums and deductibles and less coverage. This is already happening.
Just a quick note. Although IÂ only took a small position in BP recently, based on my most recently analysis, IÂ feel there is a significant chance shares will make new lows soon. Therefore, I...
Last week, more than 14,000 nurses from Minnesota hospitals staged a 1-day walk-out as a sign of protest over excessive patient loads. The nurses are right about staffing shortages and overloaded responsibilities. However, their solution – hiring more nurses will add further costs pressures to America’s unsustainable healthcare bubble. Without radical change, this bubble promises to burst, adding yet another dimension to America's healthcare crisis.

Today, I’m going to show you just how misguided Peter Schiff remains. As expected, Schiff continues to cling onto his one-way investment approach, which is focused on extremes. I am convinced that Peter will go to his death bed proclaiming the same things as he has over several years. As you might appreciate, things change and investments must be managed to account for these changes. However, as any good salesman would do, Schiff sticks to extremes, while never altering his course no matter how bad his “strategies” might look because extremes are what lure in the sheep, who have very little ability to think for themselves.

I just ran across this plea from Peter Schiff in my mail box and I had to make a comment. This is a man who took his 5-man brokerage firm and turned it into a staff of over 100 in less than 3 years, compliments of CNBC and the naive individuals who fell for his hot air.
Even more interesting than this article was where IÂ found it. Perhaps Mr. Sviden has watched www.911missinglinks.com

In the past, I have addressed the errors made by Peter Schiff's analysis of the economy and healthcare. For those of you who are still behind the curve and actually think Schiff knows what he is talking about, (i.e. being more right than wrong) you should question how a man who has no expertise in healthcare thinks he knows how to fix the problems.

“If I submit a manuscript to a publishing house, it is again checked first for references to the Jews, and second, to see if its author is on the Jewish blacklist. In this manner, the Jews prevent any gentile writer from reaching the public if he is known to be indifferent or hostile to their goals, if he has refused to become a member of the shabez goi class. Any publication which rejects Jewish censorship is either driven out of business, or taken over by Jewish financial interests. A book which is published by gentiles who are not of the shabez goi class is ignored by the book review departments of mass publications, and bookstores refuse to stock it, for their stocks are reviewed monthly by traveling ADL agents who enter the store incognito, inspect the stock, and if any publication is found which mentions the Jews, the proprietor is threatened with various weapons, lawsuits, government action or financial revenge.” Eustace Mullins, The Biological Jew

Many of you are aware of my forecasts about the economy, real estate, the stock market, gold, oil, etc. from my books, articles and newsletter.
If America ever expects to fix its broken healthcare system, all of the problems must first be identified. Only then can a solution be engineered.
Most Americans have been fooled into thinking one party has the solutions to the nation’s problems, when the facts paint a much different picture. You need to understand that both parties are the same. As history shows, you get the same result regardless who resides over the White House and Congress.
But of course Wilson gave his support for a bill signaling great news for physicians, health insurers and the entire medical-industrial complex.
In part 1, I discussed the illusions of America's democracy, and pointed to the media as a key player in the web of deceit that has fooled most Americans to think they live in a democracy. I also discussed the lobbyists' role in healthcare reform.

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a piece discussing allegations of insider trading and illegal naked short selling of Washington Mutual, involving the banking cartel and potentially their hedge fund clients. In that piece, I provided a link to the SEC complaint I submitted on October 7, 2008. You might have noticed the complaint was marked as a “draft.” Some people have asked me of the complaint was ever submitted since it is marked as a draft.

In my last piece, I think I made it clear that the vast majority of economists are not only clueless, but very dangerous to your financial health. Make no mistake. At best they are broadcasters not forecasters. They’re better equipped working with historians to document events after they’ve happened. Yet, the media keeps them in the spotlight when reporting what to expect, even after history has shown they always fail to deliver.

I’m really sick and tired of these economists out there who continue to claim that America will not enter a depression. These are the same bozos that have yet to acknowledge the fact that the U.S. is in a recession and has been for several months now. In fact, as I have previously mentioned, I can make a very strong case that the U.S. has been in the early stages of a silent, modest depression for at least two years; at the very least a protracted recession masked by credit. After the appropriate adjustments have been made for GDP, the U.S. economy has had no more than 3 to 4 quarters of GDP growth since 2005. Thus far, we have seen drastic emergency interventions by the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury – measures not taken since the Great Depression. Thus far, we have seen the failure of the sixth largest U.S. bank – Washington Mutual, representing the largest bank failure in U.S. history.
In America's Financial Apocalypse (extended 2006 version), IÂ made the case for a trend of declining basic research from core scientific disciplines such as chemistry and physics.Â I also not...

You might recall a piece I wrote about Martin Weiss back in June. He runs a large newsletter service down in what I call "Scam Alley" or the West Palm Beach region of South Florida.Â

For many years now we’ve all seen the reckless use of taxpayer funds by Washington. This irresponsible and unaccountable waste of tax dollars has been particularly prominent during President Bush’s tenure - from billions going to blow up bridges, roads and buildings in Iraq, only to rebuild them - to the Department of Homeland Security, which is no more than a joke. Meanwhile, America’s own infrastructure is in badly need of repair, with current estimates anywhere between $1.5 to $3 trillion and growing each day. Has anyone asked where this money is going to come from? I guess it seems like a trivial issue given the current problems. But it’s going to be a big problem in the not-so-distant future. My guess is that Washington’s inability to pay for these repairs will ultimately lead to the privatization of the transportation department, prison system and many more services expected by taxpayers.
My advice is to find some people who you trust; those with proven track records, those who are not tied to the television shows. Figure it out. You are only going to be misled by the mainstream media. They will only come clean after it is too late, fooling you into thinking they actually warned you in a timely manner. But as you can see, this is simply not a reflection of reality. That is how the dotcom charade worked and that is how this one if playing out. It’s game that is played. Stop being played and become a player.
As I correctly identified a couple of months ago, the propaganda campaign by the media, Washington and Wall Street has been very strong and continues to grow each day.

As many of you know, the media black-balled me and continues to today for a very good reason. They are protecting the agendas of their financial sponsors – the financial industry and corporate America, despite the fact that there are not even five individuals who collectively can match my track record. In the future, I will continue to provide examples of just how reckless the media hacks are. It should be a criminal offense for the media to air some of these guys, especially when the media positions them as experts.
I continue where I left off from Part 1 of this piece... It might seem like the guys interviewed by the financial media know what they’re talking about. But if their position is too superficial or too extreme, their guidance could actually prove to be worse than those who listened to Larry Kudlow, or “Mr. Perpetual Bull Market."
Amidst all of the media coverage, instead of real experts, what you see are data collectors (Robert Shiller), perpetual doomers – guys who have been preaching doom for two decades - Roubini, Schiff, Krugman and Faber. And now we see the “hindsight heroes” who are only jumping aboard now that things are obvious (everyone on CNBC, FBN, radio, and various financial websites). Any way you slice it, they’re all extremists. Extremists are largely useless and sometimes dangerous.

According to Paul, healthcare should be run like mobile phone providers! Okay let's see.

That's one reason why healthcare has become such a problem.

From what I can tell, the ONLY thing Mr. Schiff understands about healthcare is the poor design of private medical insurance. The current system does not provide real insurance. It’s nothing more than a system of pre-paid medical, operating with the rules of insurance. And this has created a huge source of fraud by private insurers. Assuming we keep the basic structure of private insurance in place, it should be modified to provide assistance under some catastrophic, emergency situation rather than routine care.
Certainly, President Obama is not going about things in a manner I would advise. But Peter, you cannot use his extremist approach (or I should say that of Larry Summers and others who are really running the show) to validate your own extremist views of the “dangers” of prudent and accountable regulation; something the United States has not had in decades.
I normally don’t bother myself with reading personal views pumped out throughout the Internet. But I came across one of Peter Schiff’s pitches demonstrating just how off the mark he remains. So I felt compelled to address his misguided opinions; not only because he is wrong, but also because he has been inducted into the deceitful media club. And he has used this venue as a manner by which to sway political and economic opinion. Have a look.
