"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.”

“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

How to Think Clearly

"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)


3. DO NOT USE A "SMART PHONE" (or at least do not use your phone to access the internet)


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.

STOP Being Taken

“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.

Media Lies

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.  

Why Stathis Was Banned

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...


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.   

Rules to Remember

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.

American Fools

I have said this is the past many times, and now I am going to say it with a bit more conviction. If you really believe there are two distinct political parties in America, you are a complete fool.

Those of you who have fallen for Obama’s “American Idol” presidency, with all of the bells and whistles one would expect from a Hollywood production are just as ignorant as those who believe the lies and misinformation from talking head idiots like Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Mark Levine, Sean Hannity, and the rest of that idiotic neo-con, racist crew who piggybacks onto their propaganda as a way to profit – you know, like Michelle Malkin and Ann Coulter – some of the bigger idiots on the airwaves.
These clowns are all part of the political media club. And they are very dangerous to America’s future; but only because YOU listen to their bull. The only thing they are qualified to discuss is Britney Spears and Paris Hilton (you’ll note they discuss these pop stars frequently).
These lying, paid-off hacks make me sick to my stomach. It’s all a media circuit of manipulators who refuse to open their platform to intelligent experts because they are afraid their brainwashed audience will learn the truth. When informed listeners do call in, they are disrespected, yelled at, cut-off, or insulted.
And if you really pose a threat to expose their lies, the call screener (known as the show's producer) won’t even let you threw. It’s happened to me several times. Once they find out who I am and what I have to say, they hang up on me without letting me voice my views or challenge the propaganda. That is what you call censorship. They feel threaten by the truth as delivered by real experts. The best way to avoid defeat is to run from the enemy.  
The only thing that disgusts me more than these lying, manipulative blabber mouths are those who believe their trash without bothering to challenge their blatant lies. That would be their audience. It’s truly a pathetic display of ignorant behavior. It has become the "American Way."
Regardless what crowd you fall into, let me be clear. You have been brainwashed. If you fall into either of these groups, whether it’s the Obama change bologna or the republican trash, you are a sucker. There is but one party in Washington, and they serve the interests of corporate American and the Federal Reserve.
If you really believe America has a democracy, free speech, and a fair justice system, you probably also believe in Santa Claus. If you fall into this majority, you probably also wonder why your life continues to SUCK, why you always get blasted in stock market scandals, and so forth, without realizing it’s primarily due to your own ignorance. You only have yourself to blame for being so naïve and sleeping with your enemies.
The political blame game serves a vital role in facilitating the continuation of elitist control over America. If you are led to believe there are two distinct political parties, you will always have someone to blame for your continued misery.
Believing this illusion of a two-party system fuels the ongoing battles between democrats and republicans. But each party is fundamentally the same because they serve the interests of corporations and financial criminals. That is why it never matters who is in office. For most Americans, the results are the same.
It does not matter whether we have a democratic or republican Congress or White House. Living standards for most Americans have been in decline for nearly three decades, while corporations and their wealthy elite shareholders have thrived.
It’s time to wake up and realize the facts. America has only one political party. And they plan to keep it that way. This is how all mafias operate.
So stop poisoning your mind with the propaganda and start doing your own research. Find out the truth for yourself because I can guarantee you that you won’t get it from the media. The media’s mission is not to deliver accurate news or valuable insight. Their mission is to maximize profits. The best way to do that is to serve the interests of their financial sponsors. Who do you think pays the bills of the TV networks and newspapers?  Figure it out.
And stop wasting your time at these useless tea party events. Many of these events are headed by radio talking head propagandists. They have been disguised as non-partisan when the facts demonstrate they are smoke screens to recruit republicans and diminish support for the current administration. Where were these tea parties last year when the Bush administration got the bailout ball rolling? 
Many of the speakers at these tea parties are the same lying idiots using rudimentary psychological tactics to seize control over your mind. They position themselves on the side of the people when they actually serve the interests of corporate America, Wall Street and the elitists. Sorry to shatter your dreams but you’ve been fooled. These tea parties are a scam. Figure it out. 
They are the same scumbags who bitch about bailouts and government control as a way to sympathize with your frustration and prey on your fears, yet they advocate billions of dollars in Wall Street bonuses and criminal CEO compensation.
They connect with your “sense of patriotism,” then hijack your mind with lies and manipulation. This is the same tactic they used when pushing for the war in Iraq. This is the same tactic parents use on toddlers. Are you really that stupid to not see how you have been fooled? If you fall into this category, you should think of yourself as a kid being fooled by adult idiots and liars.
Most of the participants of these tea parties are mad as Hell, but they have been fooled into blaming Obama and the Democratic Party for the mess America finds itself in, when the blame lies with Washington. All these events serve to do is to continue the illusion of a two-party system. As long as the Washington mafia persists, America’s future will be very dark.
Most Americans not only have very short memories, they simply aren’t that bright. But this hasn’t always been the case. America’s pathetic K-12 educational system has been designed to dumb the masses down because stupid people are much easier to control than intelligent, informed minds.
Do you really believe the world’s most costly educational system is incapable of achieving even reasonable performance scores? If so, I suppose you believe the nation that sent a man to the moon some 45 years ago is incapable of preventing illegal aliens from crossing the U.S. border. You had better start figuring these things out because you’re being played.  
Go out and take a survey and you will see just how stupid Americans have become. Stand on the street corner and ask people who pass by if the can answer a few things taught in the 4th grade such as the multiplication table. You are likely to be shocked at the results.
Contrary to what you might assume, Washington isn’t concerned about a highly uneducated domestic work force. They created a solution to deal with a nation of idiots. It’s called free trade. And corporate America loves it because it allows them to seek out the brightest minds on earth, offering them much lower wages and no benefits. It is just another mechanism by which to enslave the working-class while transferring their wealth to the elitists.
The side-effect of this extortion is that some of this wealth is also redistributed to emerging markets. That, my friend explains the previous record 4.5 year record corporate profits up through 2006, as well as booming economies in Asia and Latin America. All of that wealth has been taken from working-class Americans.  
Washington is most concerned with controlling a population that threatens to create social unrest when they learn how they have been screwed over the past few decades. Judging by the absence of any real protests over the real estate and banking fraud and theft of taxpayer dollars, I would say Washington feels pretty good about its progress.
Along with a horrendous K-12 educational system, America’s media machine has turned the minds of most Americans into mush. They have partnered with Washington, Wall Street, and corporate America to execute their directives; directives that almost always create adverse consequences for your life.  
It is truly a disgusting sight to behold, for it signals the definite and permanent collapse of the nation at the hands of the people; through their own ignorance.
When it comes to intelligence and common sense, I have far greater respect for foreigners. Sadly, foreigners know more about what is really going on in America than Americans. Of course not everyone in America has the mind of a monkey. I’d say about 90-95% of all Americans are complete clueless. Some might say I’m being generous.
It’s past time you wake up and smell the stench littered across America. Washington operates as a mafia. There is but one political party. The kingpins of the Washington mafia are the Federal Reserve and corporate America.
They have fooled you into thinking there are two parties by debating issues that do not matter so much. And when they bring up issues that really matter, such as healthcare, both the democratic and republican solutions represent a victory for the industry. Yet, they have you believe this just isn’t so. I’m here to tell you that it is so.
We have seen the same song and dance over and over again with virtually every industry, from energy to finance. It’s similar to the Gambino’s and Genevese’s going up against each other only for bragging rights. Regardless of the outcome, both mafia families win at the expense of their victims.
Let me be clear. There will be NO REAL healthcare reform because healthcare lobbyists own Washington.  All you will see are illusions and glorious claims from Obama. He is merely the latest in a long stretch of puppet presidents whose strings are being pulled by elitists. While you cannot alter reality, it is the job of Washington and the media to alter your perception of reality. And they are doing a damn good job of it. 
It’s time to get up off your lazy behind and do something. Show these manipulators you know their tricks. Email them. Call into their shows and ask them why they refuse to air experts with no agendas on issues they ramble about as if they are experts, like the economy and healthcare.
Tell these lying manipulative scumbags you won’t fall for their tricks and lies anymore.
Pull the plug on their broadcasts so they will lose advertising dollars. Call Washington and demand an end to lobbyists.
Tell Obama to deliver what he promised – change – instead of lies.
If you do not do these simple things, America is finished. Guaranteed.
I’ll help get you started…,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
