"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."

“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."

“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.

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.
It seems as if the new trend in modern America is to use scare tactics as a way to sell the sheep.
It worked for President Bush when he warned of Saddam’s WMDs.
It also worked for Paulson when he shoved the unconstitutional banking and auto bailouts (TARP and other taxpayer funds) down the throats of U.S. taxpayers. (1) (2) (3) (4)
Today, various individuals, from media clowns to investment pundits are using their own brand of scare tactics in order to get people to buy gold. As you shall see, this article addresses the controversy of these activities.
Let me first begin with a reminder about the dangers of America’s media monopoly.
Instead of presenting different perspectives in a manner which promotes an open forum of debate and inquiry, the media feeds its audience one-sided views of what they want you to believe, which most often does not represent the reality. This is an inconspicuous form of censorship most are unaware of.
Remember, airing one or two pieces that go against the consensus viewpoints promoted by the media does not represent equal representation. And without equal representation, you essentially have slanted views. The media uses many sneaky tactics to hide their manipulative messages. (5)
Instead of airing experts with no agendas and excellent track records, hacks like Beck and his circus monkey peers turn every problem into a political issue, so as to make you think the problems will be solved the next time around when you vote for the other party.
Beck is now making economic predictions, despite the fact that he is not qualified to do so.
In the process, the media industry cashes in on your fear by serving as paid shills for gold dealers. (6)
The various deceitful and sometimes illegal activities of the media have been successful because there are too many naive Americans ready to swallow everything they are told, rather than bother to question things. In the process of tuning into the media monopoly, Americans become brainwashed. Events are spun, dramatized and exaggerated. While this has been going on for decades, it has never been as bad as seen today.
Washington (or I should really say the elites who pull the strings of the Washington puppets) knows that if Americans realized they have no vote, and their so-called two-party political system is actually a one-party dictatorship, there would be mass anarchy. (7)
About 17 months ago, when the tea party movement began, there was a small chance of the people waking up and uniting to put an end to the Washington mafia. That is specifically why the neo-con strategists rapidly organized a campaign to take over the tea party movement.
Instead of a movement opposing the Washington mafia, it was transformed into a front for the Republican Party.
Instead of a force of the people for the people, the tea party movement became a form of controlled opposition. (8) (9)
The main reason why this transformation occurred was due to the fact that tea party organizers across the nation were absolutely clueless. They were pissed off after seeing what happened, but they were clueless as to why it happened and who was to blame. So they were looking for leadership and visibility. And the neo-con pundits provided it.
As a result, the tea party movement has become one of the biggest laughing stocks to come out of the United States in decades. But don’t tell that to tea party members, as they will cry and call you names as always happens when delusional people are confronted with the truth.
Neo-cons devised an elaborate scheme to hijack the only organized force that could inspire a positive impact. In the beginning, they moved in on the tea party with subtly. A few of the radio entertainers (all of which who have banned me) began to superimpose republican agendas onto those of tea party advocates.
Many of these lying scumbags gave speeches at tea party events, serving to gradually link the masses behind this movement to the Republican Party. But they didn’t force themselves on the tea party. Naïve members rallied to align themselves with these media liars. And neo-con plants sparked this call to action using various forms of psychological trickery.
Next, tea party plants from the Republican Party began calling into radio shows like Rush’s and trashed Obama, so as to further galvanize the mission of the tea party as a takeover by the Republican Party.
As this movement grew, neo-cons who had infiltrated the tea party began using social networking sites to influence the tea party sheep in mass, with the knowledge that sheep always love to follow.
Other neo-con plants invaded tea party web sites, making posts that further likened the agenda of the tea party to that of the Republican Party. And of course, tea party members fell for this rudimentary trick without bothering to take a step back and question the direction the movement had taken.
Eventually, confused tea party members, desperate for visibility and leadership and enthralled by media celebrity began requesting idiots like Sarah Palin to speak at their events, of course for no less than $100,000.
The case of Sarah Palin illustrates a prime example of the power of the media.
Due to Americans’ infatuation with television, the media has turned this brainless idiot into a millionaire overnight, a best-selling author of a useless trash book which she didn’t even write, a faux news commentator, and most likely a presidential candidate down the road. This demonstrates the shear stupidity of the American population.
And of course we have the typical losers looking to profit from Palin’s “popularity” with the sheep by writing a book about her. How can people not see this as exploitative and deceitful? (10)
Moreover, her daughter…you know, the teen single mother…is now offering her services as a speaker for $30,000 per event.
That’s right. $30,000 for a kid to speak; a kid who has accomplished nothing. Just a normal kid who I would have to assume has a below normal IQ.
Notice Bristol Palin’s Hollywood-esque PR event in the picture above. I bet Paris Hilton was next in line for her photo-op.
Like everything else, it’s all about supply and demand. And when you have a population filled primarily with sheep, you can imagine how easy it is to create celebrities and heroes from crooks, liars and losers. Welcome to the United States of America.
It should be crystal clear that ANYONE who gets media exposure, regardless whether bad or good, will become an instant celebrity in today’s American society, because American sheep allow it.
Brainless idiots, losers and liars will get lucrative books deals, reality TV shows and other offers from the media, which made them “celebrities” in the minds of America’s dumbest citizens. As you can imagine, that represents the majority of the U.S. population.
Do you remember how big Octomom became?
Let’s have a look how Miss Suleman has cashed in.
If you are a supporter of PETA (which is led by a bunch of wackos) you should write and tell them you refuse to support an organization that uses funds from members to promote and enrich the livelihood of a scumbag.
For what? Scrutiny over her attempts to bleed the welfare system dry?
What about Joe the Plumber, the plant used by McCain’s strategists?
It’s sometimes depressing to see things through my eyes. I see a nation filled largely with sheeple who have no idea what is going on; a nation filled with sheeple who are actually being programmed by the media and government, all while much of the world laughs in amazement.
These are the same sheeple who wonder why and how they get exploited year after year. And when the time comes to blame someone, they always seem to pin the tail on the wrong donkey.
Most often, they are brainwashed to believe one political party over the other is to blame, when the facts reveal a different story.
Other times, they allow the media to implant scapegoats in their mind rather than identify the real criminals. We saw this strategy used after the dotcom collapse. As you will recall, not one of the dotcom criminals went to prison. Rather, the media focused the attention on Enron, WorldCom, Tyco and other companies that had absolutely nothing to do with the dotcom scams.
Today, we see a similar tactic utilized by America’s tightly controlled media monopoly. If something works, you don’t change it. Instead of calling for the indictment of the banking executives for committing securities fraud (as well as less obvious crimes such as insider trading, naked short sales, and other criminal activities) the media has focused the attention on Bernie Madoff. (11)
However, as criminal as Mr. Madoff’s Ponzi scheme was, we cannot forget that it was actually a victim of the real Ponzi scheme; the multi-trillion Ponzi scheme committed by Wall Street banks and mortgage lenders. They, rather than Madoff should be the focus of attention by the media. (12)
You need to ask yourself why your favorite media whore who makes daily appearances on CNBC, FBN or CNN never bothers to mention the real criminals. Could it be that they value the free media exposure and the millions of dollars that comes with it over telling the truth? And you actually celebrate these guys?
Understand this. Anyone who is not pounding the table calling for the criminal indictment of the banking executives is your enemy. They are all on the same side. They are against you, not with you. If you cannot see that, I suggest you get your mental vision checked. (13)
The media has a mission. It’s to keep you wrapped up into trivia and lies, distractions and deceit, all while censoring the few who know what they are talking about and who lack agendas; the few who cannot be bought off by the promise of big media exposure.
The media’s sole purpose is to protect its sponsors, even if that means shielding them from scrutiny for criminal activities. If you really think you are getting the truth from the media, you are a damn fool. (14) (15) (16)
If you want to know why you have suffered huge investment losses, I’ll tell you. It’s because you were duped by the media.
The crooks involved in this deceit are widespread and range into the tens of thousands, from the mainstream media and their hacks to the bloggers who pump gold and promote currency trading and investment scams.
Once again, I must say that the vast majority of Americans are complete idiots. While the upside to this is that it makes the rest of us look really smart, the problem is that a small handful of people cannot do much to affect a positive change. All we can do is effortlessly take your money as you align yourselves on the losing side of each trade.
But for those who understand the dangers faced by these activities, taking your money from stock trades is of no relevance. Much bigger things are at stake; namely the future of America.
Today, when you hear about a so-called tea party candidate, you should no longer be surprised why they are republicans, as the tea party and the Republican Party are one in the same.
As a matter of fact, unbeknownst to most Americans, the tea party movement is a mere arm’s length from the Democratic Party. It’s a Washington mafia. Those who fail to see this simply lack an understanding of things. These are the people who have become brainwashed by the media monopoly. (17)
It’s shocking to see the same people who blame CNBC and Jim Cramer for their investment losses continue to tune into these programs. Sorry, but if you watch this trash, not only do you deserve to lose every dime you have, I’m hoping you do.
And for those who think that FOX is somehow better than CNBC or any other network, I’m here to tell you that you have been fooled. They are all in the same club. This is why the producers, hosts and other staff shuttle from one network to the next, in the same manner professional athletes and Wall Street professionals join what were formerly their competitors. Changing the name of the company doesn’t mean a thing. They are all in the same ball game; they are playing against YOU. And they’ve been blowing you out for decades. It’s time to wake up.
By providing an audience for this criminal industry, you are empowering them. The size of their audience directly dictates how much they can charge for ads.
The same applies to the radio and print media. They are all members of the same crime syndicate. This syndicate also extends to Washington, Wall Street, the Federal Reserve and large corporations. If you aren’t convinced of this, I suggest you do some research.
While the principal organizers of the hijacked tea party movement remain largely in the shadows, the ones with visibility - Mark Levine, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck continue to twist the original mission of the party, largely without notice.
As it stands today, the tea party movement will forever be viewed as a joke. And the members will be laughed at for being fooled into casting aside their original mission. Instead of adhering to their original mission to combat the Washington mafia (similar to the Boston Tea Party’s revolt against the British government), the tea party movement has willingly accepted the agendas of the Republican Party, as if there is any real difference from the Democratic Party.
Understand this. The neo-con media clowns lie 90% of the time when on air.
How do I know? I’ve heard their rants. I’ve heard their ridiculous speeches.
Furthermore, each one is extremely afraid to have me confront their lies.
How do I know? The call-screeners (known as the show producers) never let me on when I announce who I am and what I want to discuss.
In the past I have discussed how gold dealers have partnered with the neo-con consortium of the Washington mafia in order to exploit the success of their brainwashing activities.
For instance, clowns like Levine, Hannity and others have received huge payouts for sponsoring gold. But they don’t just say “buy gold.” They narrate long-winded propaganda pitches, placing exclusive blame for the problems faced by America on the Democrats, often centering out President Obama. Those who have followed me for some time realize that I disapprove of Obama’s actions and lack thereof since entering the White House. However, the results will be the same regardless who is in office because the fact is that the president is merely a puppet to the elites. (18) (19)
The neo-con talking heads exaggerate or completely lie about most of what they say. And they are able to get away with it due to the First Amendment. However, when one uses propaganda as a launching pad for pitching investments, this crosses the border of free speech rights.
They paraphrase the myths preached by many of the snake oil salesmen doomers littered throughout the media, discussing things like hyperinflation and civil unrest. Finally, once they have reached your emotions (panic and fear) they pitch gold to you.
They use the same tactics to justify America’s illegal and misguided occupation of Iraq. They have also tried the same tactics as a way to justify invading Iran.
Mark Levine has been particularly active using this manipulative approach. He rattles on for several minutes with his whining, highly annoying voice about how the economic collapse is the fault of liberals. Finally, he closes out his speech by telling his listeners to buy gold because the dollar is doomed.
Levine’s unethical manipulation of the facts has gotten so ridiculous that it often becomes difficult to decipher whether you are listening to some entertainment show or a gold infomercial. I’ve encountered anything quite like it. It’s beyond absurd.
According to Levine, liberals are responsible for the economic collapse, and Obama is turning American into a socialist nation.
Yet, Levine fails to remind his largely unintelligent audience that it was Bush who started the bailouts and that this collapse was the result of many years of negligence from both parties as well as the Wall Street criminals who Levine eagerly protects.
Then he closes up his whining sales pitch by talking about how you must own gold, as he does because inflation will soar.
Anyone who knows anything on Wall Street will tell you that gold is NOT, and I repeat, NOT a hedge against inflation. I have discussed this at length previously. (20)
Furthermore, the high volatility seen with gold is best dealt with by trading it, rather than a buy-and-hold approach. Anyone who is unable to realize by now that the buy-and-hold approach is disastrous has no business investing, unless their goal is to commit financial suicide. (21)
Let me be clear. Mark Levine, along with the others should be fined by the SEC for receiving compensation for giving investment advice without being a registered investment advisor.
Perhaps even worse than Levine is Glenn Beck, the main hack for Goldline. This is a man that represents everything wrong today with the media. He is NOT and I repeat, NOT a news journalist, nor does he represent the truth. As a result, he refuses to air unbiased experts, for that would destroy his fantasyland stories. (22)
Furthermore, Beck is a poor excuse for an entertainer. The same can be said about the others. Along with Levine and virtually every other media personality you can think of, Beck also refused to interview me. Now I know why. He was too busy setting up financial arrangements with Goldline. In other words, Beck interviewed Schiff and the other gold bugs only to open the door for huge endorsements from Goldline. Clearly this hat-trick has created a one-sided agenda for Beck; a very lucrative one at that.
If he was to interview me, it would have caused Goldline to be upset because I speak the facts about gold. And I have no bias, as I am not a dealer in gold, nor do I promote gold ads. The next time you decide to believe anyone’s pitch about gold, you need to see whether they deal in gold or whether they advertise for gold companies. Thereafter, you need to examine their track record. I will guarantee you won’t find a single credible expert with a solid track record who is pumping gold, without having some financial interest in rising prices.
You must understand that the media’s job is NOT to provide you with valuable accurate insight. The media’s mission is to serve the agendas of its sponsors. And they cannot be sued for lying or for even banning the leading expert.
How do I know? I have consulted with law firms for damages resulting from the loss of revenues as the result of being banned. Being exposed to lies and censorship from the media monopoly is the price you pay for freedom of speech. Like everything else, it can be a double-edged sword if not properly used.
Unlike the clowns Beck interviews, I do not sell gold. Yet, I made a forecast for gold to soar in America’s Financial Apocalypse. The fact that I have turned soar on it now shows that I only care to tell the truth. I want to warn investors that they are not getting the truth.
If I were bashing gold for years, one could argue that I have a bias. This is clearly not the case. Now, I see a gold bubble that is forming due to the various media hacks who are being paid to promote it. If gold was such a great investment, why in the Hell is everyone so desperate to sell it to you?!
Those who waste their time on Beck and his peers (found throughout televised networks and syndicated radio stations) allow themselves to be brainwashed by his lies and twisted agendas. Meanwhile, they are all cashing in while you rush to buy gold after hearing their scare tactics.
Since receiving scrutiny regarding conflict of interest for promoting Goldline, FOX has made Beck end his endorsement with this shady company. However, during commercial breaks you will see ads by other firms that try to entice fear into the minds of viewers with lines like “your currency may be worthless.”
Recently, Congressman Weiner issued a report discussing how Glenn Beck and others have teamed up with Goldline using scare tactics so that their audience buys gold; gold which is sold for ridiculously high rates.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone with common sense. After all, gold is a commodity. That is, gold from one dealer is the same as gold from another. Therefore, the value is the same. Hence, the price you pay (or receive) from dealer to dealer should be very close to the same; that is unless you are getting a night with a high-priced hooker as a kicker.
So when you are charged higher prices than the spot (less a small premium) you are getting ripped off. How else do you think Goldline can afford to pay these hacks millions of dollars for endorsements?
They simply charge higher prices to offset expenses.
Well, it turns out that Goldline’s “high-priced hookers” are the media hacks that pitch gold.
According to Rep. Weiner’s report, the average Goldline mark-up was 90% above the melt value of the coin. The largest markup seen on a coin was 208% above the melt value.
In addition, according to Weiner, Goldline’s sales staff imply they are “Investment Advisors” or “Financial Advisers” by offering investment advice.
Next, Weiner discusses the role of these pundits.
“On numerous occasions, Glenn Beck has dedicated entire segments of his program to explaining why the U.S. money supply is destined for hyperinflation with Barack Obama as president. He will often promote the purchase of gold as the only safe investment alternative for consumers who want to safeguard their livelihoods. When the show then cuts to commercial break, viewers are treated to an advertisement from Goldline.
In the past there is always the “product” that is either the next big thing (the dot com boom) or the investment that will never go down in price (the housing market), and in the past much of the media has failed in its duty to conduct due diligence, but never before have they worked so hand in hand to cheat consumers.
Commentators like Glenn Beck who are shilling for Goldline are either the worst financial advisors around or knowingly lying to their loyal viewers.
Fred Thompson, Dennis Miller, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham, Lars Larson, Michael Smerconish, Monica Crowley and Mike Huckabee are all paid spokespeople for Goldline.
Glenn Beck was also at one point a paid spokesperson but is no longer because it violated Fox news rules. Goldline does however sponsor his program and he commonly encourages his viewers to purchase gold, without mentioning that Goldline is a sponsor of his show.”
Weiner’s report cites some quotes from these shills…
“Tonight, are we facing the end of the almighty dollar?... So I’m sure we can all assume that the dollar is here to stay, and everything is just peachy. But in the off chance that, maybe, somebody in the Middle East wouldn’t tell us exactly the truth, you know, that they’re not exactly 100 percent reliable, maybe we should discover what it means for our dollar and our country if it’s no longer pegged to oil. What does that mean for you? … Any way to protect yourself? Gold”. (Source: The Glenn Beck Show 10/7/2009)
Apparently, Beck read America’s Financial Apocalypse, (perhaps the copy I sent him in 2007) or some of my articles discussing the dollar-oil link, because I don’t anyone else who has discussed this.
But of course, I have also warned about buying physical gold, as well as debunked the inflation-hedge myth of gold. So maybe that’s why he has banned me (and yes, he has; I have proof). (21)
Yea, Beck make sure and thrown in a line on the Middle East so as to reinforce the lies America’s Zionist-controlled media monopoly has created. But don’t you dare mention anything about our friends in Israel having been caught spying on Washington despite the fact that they control virtually every aspect of our government, the media, the Federal Reserve and the rest of the financial industry.
“We could be facing recession, depression or collapse. Nothing Left! … I like to call it the three G system here for this, its God, Gold and Guns.” (Source: The Glenn Beck Show 11/23/2009)
If the scenario Beck and the other gold bugs preach (all of which who stand to make money off of you by pumping up gold with lies and scare tactics) plays out, you had better bet that no one will give a damn how much gold you have.
The only things you will be able to barter with are guns and bullets.
“There are those in power that […] want to destroy the dollar or … the dollar is on life support and they’d like it to stay there. It’s true. Not much that you and I can do about it. Well, there are a few things. You can prepare yourself, that’s what’s next year is a really all about on our program. Preparing yourself and part of that is – or could be – protecting yourself with gold. If you have the money to buy it, protect yourself from an out of control government with gold.” (Source: The Glenn Beck Program 12/3/09)
The dollar is on life support? Tell that to holders of the euro. It appears as if Beck has borrowed some lines from Peter Schiff and the rest of the gold dealers.
"I think you're nuts. When the system eventually collapses, and the government comes with guns and confiscates, you know, everything in your home and all your possessions, and then you fight off the raving mad cannibalistic crowds that Ted Turner talked about, don't come crying to me. I told you: get gold." (Source: Politico)
Okay, so gold is going to save us from this?
“Just the other night I was rereading Atlas Shrugged, and in it one of the characters is talking about the value of money and how paper dollars really hold no value whatsoever. They represent your work. The only thing of real value is gold. What you’ve backed that dollar up with. Well, we no longer back our dollars up with gold. If things get dicey, we’re on a banking crisis now, the declining value of the dollar, what will hold its value? Gold. I want you to call 866-GOLDLINE and find out about buying gold. You can buy it as an investment. I buy it really as insurance because it’s the one thing that will have value forever.” (Source: Goldline radio ad)
Actually, the dollar has an intrinsic value because it is backed by the empire of the world, the United States of America, as well as being linked to oil, as Beck himself admitted. In contrast, gold has absolutely no intrinsic value whatsoever. It’s like artwork; the value is only based on what people will pay for it. This of course is in contrast to silver, which one can argue does have an intrinsic value, since it is required for industry. (23)
Apparently, Beck is not satisfied with the $50 million handed to him by FOX, compliments of the idiots who watch him (remember, the audience determines salaries for these useless lairs because the size of the audience determines advertising rates).
He wants more, as do most individuals with too much money. And he has shown that he will stop at nothing to get it, even if it means create panic and state lies about gold. After all, Beck is a professional liar. But he’s certainly not alone.
“I’ll bet you’re concerned about the economy and the depreciation of the dollar just like me. That’s why people are diversifying their portfolio with gold, as a way to protect against a falling dollar and future inflation. Goldline has been helping people acquiring gold for 50 years. The people at Goldline will explain just how easy it is for you to buy gold that’s delivered directly to you.” (Source: Goldline radio ad)
“Hey folks in a perfect world we could print all our own money, buy ridiculous amounts of stuff and live happily ever after. Well life ain’t a fairy tale my friends. Look at the economy, they’re spending more than Paris Hilton on a bad day and it doesn’t get us a tiny dog and a pink purse either. It leads to a lower dollar. What can we do to diversify our portfolio and protect against that falling dollar? Buy gold. Gold prices have tripled in value and they are up more than 40% in the past 2 years. I trust Goldline.” (Source: Goldline radio ad)
“With the stock market where it is, volatile, moving up one day, down the next, the trillion dollar budget deficit. And look what’s happening in the banking industry, the government continuing to print money it looks like. It’s important to remember there’s only a finite amount of gold. It makes sense in these types of economic times to seek a safe harbour. And that is gold. I can’t tell you whether gold is going to get up or down. I can tell you however that gold makes sense as part of any portfolio. It serves as a great ballast against inflation.” (Source: Goldline radio ad)
“Our country is experiencing the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Stocks and real estate have lost much of their value and government is spending trillions of dollars in a desperate attempt to bail us out. In these tough times I believe you should own gold. Gold offers diversification so all your eggs aren’t all in one basket. And gold is one of the few investments that is going up every year since 2001. My choice for gold is Goldline.” (Source: Goldline radio ad)
After reading these pitches, you would think they were financial experts.
When you see these idiots discuss “diversification,” you should be selling your gold rather than buying it because the involvement of these clowns signals that gold is in a bubble. It’s apparent they were reading from a script provided by Goldline. Isn’t that lying? What about the Truth in Advertising Act?
As far as I’m concerned, these hacks should be fined by the SEC for giving investment advice for a fee, much in the same way that the clowns on CNBC and FBN should be fined.
They are being paid (whether directly or indirectly in the form of ads) by companies they are pitching. That means they should be registered as investment advisers. And I know of at least one SEC attorney that agrees with me.
But you shouldn’t think for a minute that Congressman Weiner represents some kind of hero.
He is no different than the rest of the criminal bastards in Washington (with the exception of Dennis Kucinich). They all grandstand while the cameras are rolling. But after a long day filled with bipartisan shouting matches, each member of both parties leave Capitol Hill together for dinner and drinks, laughing how they outdid their opponent, just as the mafia crime families behave.
Weiner’s report is merely a political weapon being used to thwart the growing (although futile) support of the republicans as elections near. But these efforts don’t matter to Americans because when it comes to the issues that really matter, both parties are the same.
Ever since releasing America's Financial Apocalypse, I have faced a widespread ban by the media. Why? Because they want to shield the full truth from you, while protecting their sponsors.
Anyone who didn't read this book and Cashing in on the Real Estate Bubble before 2008 should be raging mad at the media because if you had, you could have cleaned up based on the investment guidance I provided.
The media prevented you from knowing about me and my forecasts. It is this criminal industry that is more responsible for your losses even more than Wall Street. Never forget that.
I'm counting on YOU to spread the word around the Internet about me so as to help save your fellow humans from the lies and deceit.
