"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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.
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.

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 t...
The second take is always better than the first, but you decide!

In the 50 minute audio below, Mike first discusses how Harry Dent, Peter Schiff and others in that realm claim to be analysts, economists and strategists, when the facts show they are professional marketers which should never be listened to. He also exposes the fact that 99% of all investment-related books are useless, and are published exclusively for marketing purposes. These are the books that are promoted by the Jewish Mafia’s media segment. As a result, these are the books Main Street reads because they assume that the books are good since the media promotes the hell out of them. But the facts don’t change. Once you examine these books you will see they do not provide any real value or accurate analysis. In the second half of the audio Mike follows up with a discussion......
Let’s see what some people have to say. “1st, Harry Dent is NOT an economist, he works with demographics. 2nd, in his last book "The Next Great Bubble Boom: How to Profit from the Greatest Boom in History: 2006-2010" he predicted the Dow to be 40,000 in 2009. You call that spot on?? Is that just a finer detail?? Was 2006 the start of the Greatest Boom in History as the title indicates? Harry Dent is very good at putting quotes in books and his newsletters that he can draw on as being right no matter what happens much like a psychic reading. When he has made big calls to the extent of making it the title of a book, he was dead wrong. Both AIM and Mass Mutual once had mutual funds based on the Dent philosophy and were sub-managed by him. Both have gone bust as being som......
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.
I've previously exposed Jim Rickards (see related articles at the end). According to Rickards and the scam artists who put together his internet infomercials at Agora Financial (which also publishes the trash from Doug Casey and his monkeys, Harry Dent, David Stockman, Ron Paul, Nomi Prins, Gerald Celente, Peter Schiff and
In the video below (first recorded in 2013) Jewess Nomi Prins demonstrates how clueless she is regarding the landscape of the global economy and capital markets. Since this interview was published, Prins hooked up with the Jewish-run copywriting boiler room Agora Financial, which is by no means surprising. After all, her fear-mongering, doomsday nonsense is a perfect match for the doom and gloom trash bin which also publishes copywriting trash from Porter Stansberry, Doug Casey and Harry Dent, just to name a few of the jug heads who make a living from promoting fear and spreading disinformation. This might explains why Agora has also partnered with Alex Jones.

You have probably heard what the clowns in the media have said about the economy. Unfortunately, the media is littered with misguided salesmen like Peter Schiff, Mark Faber and other gold dealers, who clearly have no idea what they're talking about. What they do have are agendas. Then you have pundits who are always late to the party. Ask yourself the following question… Have you ever gotten a true sense of the reality of the U.S. or global economy by listening to the clowns in the media?

In this audio, Mike discusses some of the mysteries surrounding Thailand’s economy. In this first presentation, Mike begins a discussion that pertains to how it is possible for Thailand to have the world’s lowest unemployment rate (a more detailed discussion will be continued in the future). He also discusses the enigma of Thailand’s low unemployment rate during a period whereby the nation is also experiencing deflation. In this audio Mike reminds listeners about various differences in data collection throughout the world, as well as a discussion of the various con men who continuously preach doom in the US while misrepresenting developing nations as safe havens.

All investors, whether novice or advanced, must understand the dangers of media. The secret that most people do not know is that the media stands in their way as the single largest force preventing them from doing well as investors. Only the most advanced investors are able to remain immune from media spin. And unless you are in this small group of investors, you are much better off staying completely away from all media. As a part of my mission to arm investors with more intelligence so they are able to repel the countless streams of propaganda, I've exposed the truth about Peter Schiff, Marc Faber, Jim Rogers, Doug Casey, Porter Stansberry, Harry Dent, David Tice, John Hussman, John Williams, Eric Sprott, Jim Rickards, Robert Prechter, Mike Maloney, Martin Armstrong, Ron Paul and m...
In the video below, we take a closer look at the doomsday douche bag, Chris Martenson, along with the doomsday publication called Money Map, which is a production of Agora Financial. Agora Financial is the single largest copyediting firm spewing doomsday bullshit in the world. It publishes dozens of trash websites and newsletters, from Casey Research to the Daily Reckoning. Remember, the apple never falls far from the tree. I will be exposing Agora in more detail in the near future. *Note: this list of companies and publications owned by or in some partnership with Agora Financial is not complete. There are several others not listed here such as the Oxford Club (soon to be featured in an upcoming video), Harry Dent (previously exposed) and several others. &...

Originally Published on April 17, 2014 from the Opening Statement of the April 2014 issue of Dividend Gems The harsh winter season has put a dent in the earnings of some retailers. But the big question mark remains the impact of the overall weakness in many emerging market economies. For several months we have cautioned readers that we expected to see a growing trend of earnings weakness. The latest earnings misses were seen with IBM, GOOG and UNH.
I’ve already exposed Ron Paul as an agent of controlled opposition working for the Koch brothers. I’ve also previously exposed him as a proponent of the military-industrial complex. That’s right. If you think Paul’s so-called “anti-war" policy means an end to the military giants you haven't examined his list of campaign contributors. Defense giants funded Paul's campaign for years. Finally, I’ve shown that Ron Paul is an absolute investment disaster. But that should come as no surprise to anyone who has heard some of the outlandish things he has said. Many of his economic ideas often cause sensible people to scratch their head in disbelief. Every good salesman has a unique pitch. Ron Paul is no different. He has been cashing in on his pho...
As we have discussed in he past, Robert Prechter is one of the doomsday clowns positioned by his Jewish buddies in the media as an "expert" despite being wrong time and time again. How can a man keep predicting a market collapse year after year when everything points to the contrary? One thing I'm confident of. If you listen to Prechter you're probably going to lose your ass because he's a broken clock. People need to learn to distinguish between broken clock sales men who always pitch the same narrative versus real research analysts who know when to switch gears. Most people do not understand this distinction so they have no idea what a real research analyst is because every single person constantly promoted by the media as an "expert" is a snake oil sales man. Don'...
