"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.
Do you remember all of the forecasts and debates from the various jug heads in the media regarding when the Fed would raise interest rates in 2016?
As you might recall, this circus show was even more ridiculous than the one that took place in 2015.
The interest rate kosher drama of 2016 even featured absurd "predictions" and "forecasts" from several top Fed officials.
For both 2015 and 2016, the overwhelming theme surrounding interest rate forecasts by the various "geniuses" promoted by the media was constant flip flopping after missing the mark over and over again.
In contrast, Mike Stathis pointed to a single 25 basis point rate hike for 2015 and 2016 early on when everyone else was forecasting three, four and even more rate hikes each year.
Furthermore, as our research clients are aware, Stathis believed the hike would occur in December of each year.
Early on, most of the "experts" insisted the Fed would raise interest rates by February 2016. Most of the remaining "geniuses" were confident the Fed would raise rates in March. Thereafter, they felt rates would be raised several additional times in 2016.
But when February and March came and passed, the circle of media clowns (i.e. "geniuses) pushed their forecasts forward to May and June.
Once May and June came and went, they forecast July, then August.
But the various "experts" promoted by the media still weren't finished revealing how clueless they were. After having gotten it so wrong for so long, some of these clowns even claimed interest rates would not be raised at all in 2016.
As we all now realize, the Fed raised interest rates on December 14, 2016, just as Mike Stathis had forecast many months in advance.
In the future, Stathis plans to discuss (to Members and Clients) how he nailed the extent and timing of the first two rate hikes in nearly a decade, in advance and why he was the only person in the world to have achieved this.
But since Stathis has been barred by all media, most investors were never able to capitalize on his accurate forecast.
This has been a common theme for many years now, as the media continues to air broken clock con men and idiots, while banning real experts who stand ready, willing and able to guide Main Street.
One particular clown (who receives unlimited promotion by his Jewish media buddies) continued to insist for a number of years that the Fed would NEVER AGAIN raise interest rates.
This individual has created a very lucrative career based on fear-mongering, deceptive and possibly illegal tactics, as well as misinformation and false statements. He has also created a cult following of low IQ, naive fools, many of which appear to be suffering from some kind of mental illness.
Once the Fed raised rates, this clown continued to make excuses and dodge the bullets of reality, just like he always does when he gets things wrong, which is very often.
You can be assured that if this broken clock, fear-mongering contrarian indicator had correctly predicted the first rate hike he would have made a promo video about it because he remains desperate to keep the myth alive that he "was right." After all, this mythology forms the basis of his business and represents the common belief shared by his cult following. However, the facts paint a very different picture that shows he has not been right about many things in years.
As you might imagine, being able to forecast interest rates is immensely important for a variety of reasons. If you are able to forecast interest rates accurately when most others are wrong you can make huge profits.
Although Mike Stathis is probably the only financial professional to have accurately forecast the timing of the first two interest rate hikes by the Fed in nearly a decade, we can never know for certain if other financial professionals made similar forecasts since the criminal media monopoly controls who receives exposure and what is said.
We do know one thing for certain. There was no one in the media who forecast the first two rate hikes several months before these hikes occurred.
The mistake that most investors make is that they actually believe media appearances indicate credibility. Mike Stathis has demonstrated over and over again that media appaearances actually point to lack of credibility.
In fact, there tends to be a somewhat of an inversely proportional relationship in this regard. That is, the more one in featured in the media as an "expert" the less credible they are, and more more wrong they are.
For example, Peter Schiff, Jim Cramer, Mark Faber and Jim Rogers receive virtually unlimited exposure in the financial media. Once you conduct a detailed and lengthy examination of their track record, you will see that they are among the most reliable contrarian indicators in the world.
The problem is that the media primarily airs con artists, idiots, shills and broken clocks, whose primary purpose is to execute a publicity stunt in order to get the sheep audience to buy their useless books, subscribe to their useless newsletters and to convince the sheep to send them their money to "manage."
Due to the media's constant airing of fear-mongering, broken clock con artists, most investors actually missed out on the greatest bull market in decades.
In addition to having nailed nearly every major US stock market sell off and bottom, in addition to having forecast consistently accurate trading entry and exits for WTI and Brent crude, natural gas and most other commodities for many years, Mike Stathis has accurately guided readers of our CCPM Forecaster through the recent movements in gold and silver, by accurately nailing the upside in the rally and identifying technical supports below which pointed to a bear trend.
As a serious investor, you need to ask yourself the following question...
Would you prefer to listen to blabber-mouthed BROADCASTERS in the media whose specific purpose is to sell useless self-promoting books filled with comedic dogmas and broken clock forecasts, newsletters and scare you into sending them your money to invest (lose)...
...or would you rather listen to a world-leading FORECASTER who is specifically in the business of providing unbiased research, does not sell gold, silver or securities, and does not even sell ads for gold or silver or anything else, but teaches what he knows to help empower investors?
One thing is guaranteed. If you pay attention to the media (including so-called "alternative media") you will lose your ass.
The media is a criminal organization designed and permitted by law to lie, deceive and rip you off, all while brainwashing you to accept ideas that threaten your future and the future of your homeland.
We believe Mike Stathis is one of the world’s top two or three investment minds in the world today. His track record confirms that.
Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of his amazing research results is that he has managed to achieve his world-leading track record without the benefit of any of the very expensive resources utilized by all major funds, analysts and Wall Street banks; nor has he had the benefit of drawing on a team of colleagues to help him research the many areas he boldly takes on.
We have good reason to believe that there is no one in the world today capable of doing what Mike Stathis does to the degree of quality and accuracy that he delivers. Yet, he remains banned by ALL media, both so-called "mainstream" and "alternative."
Once again, we want to emphasize this critial point.
Despite the fact that Mike Stathis holds the world's leading investment forecasting track record since 2006, the media continues to ban him. Instead the media continues to air con men, morons and shills as "experts."
The so-called "experts" promoted by the criminal media establishment (both so-called mainstream and alternative) continue to get most things wrong.
It's also quite interesting to note that nearly every single one of these "experts" are Jewish. The others are married to Jews or represent Jewish-run firms.
It might be somewhat acceptible for Jews to monopolize the financial media if they had excellent track records (although if the same situation existed with white gentiles, Jews would be clamouring for more "equal" representation). But when these Jewish media jug heads and con artists continue to get so many things wrong over and over again, the overwhelming dominance of Jews in the media becomes more than a coincidence.
Once you realize that Jews comprise only 2% of the US population (as well as less than 0.1% of the world population) the fact that the Jewish-controlled media positions Jews as experts should begin to stand out as more than suspicious, especially once you realize these so-called "experts" have been a complete disaster for those who listened to them.
Mike Stathis' market forecasting track record is unmatched.
Once you understand that the same filthy scum bags who control the "mainstream media" also control the "alternative media," you will realize how the game is played.
In the past we have specifically explained why each segment of the media has banned Stathis. In short, the Jewish crime bosses who control the "mainstream media" banned Stathis because he dared to reveal stunning revelations about the US economy and financial system, while issuing specific warnings about the imminent collapse in order to help the average investor.
But the Jewish crime bosses did not want the masses to be alerted to realities Mike exposed pertaining to: free trade, globalization, affirmative action, illegal immigration, America's healthcare disaster, Wall Street fraud (and much more) because the Jewish Mafia is behind these things and they want to continue these scams.
Instead, they positioned clowns, shills and con men to steer them into the gutter.
This explains why professional liars like Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Mark Levine, Alex Jones and countless other filth have promoted con artists, disinfo agents, broken clocks such as Jim Cramer and the countless Jews on CNBC as well as the Jewish shysters promoted by Cramer and CNBC from Cramer's boiler room, Thestreet, and of course the "hyperinflation, buy gold, the dollar and stock market are going to collapse" crowd.
At the same time, the "alternative media" did not want its sheep to understand the full realities regarding precious metals because they make huge sums of money selling ads for precious metals dealers and in many cases even sell previous metals directly (such as Alex Jones who only advertises for Midas Resources which is run by the Jewish scum bag and liar Ted Anderson, who is also the owner of Jones' scam radio network, GCN).
And if you don't realize where gold pricing is headed in coming years, you haven't read this 2009 article because Mike tells you. Mike Stathis isn't wrong too often.
"The media keeps creating all kinds of alluring headlines featuring their experts which amount to little more than broken clock bozos and snake oil salesmen.
The media keeps telling you how 'great' their 'experts' are and always makes a case as to why you need to listen to them.
Of course the media rarely if ever reveals the full and accurate track records of these clowns."
