"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.”

“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.

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.”

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.

Death by Media (Part 3)

As many of you know, the media black-balled me and continues to today for a very good reason. They are protecting the agendas of their financial sponsors – the financial industry and corporate America, despite the fact that there are not even five individuals who collectively can match my track record.

In the future, I will continue to provide examples of just how reckless the media hacks are. It should be a criminal offense for the media to air some of these guys, especially when the media positions them as experts. 

The media wouldn’t want someone like me around…a real expert with a remarkable track record and NO bias or agendas who could actually help investors make money. That simply isn’t the mission of the financial media. 

Their mission lies with serving the interests of the guys who buy commercials and ads – Wall Street. And if you are shown how to navigate this storm, Wall Street won’t make as much money from you.

Even today, the media continues to air what economists say, despite the fact that have no idea what they are talking about (at least the ones they interview).

There are a few credible economists out there, but you aren’t likely to see them in the media; for a very good reason – it wouldn’t bode well for their financial sponsors (Wall Street).

I’ve also been banned from many websites because I speak the truth, which might not bode well for gold bugs. The next time you check a financial website, you need to investigate what the agendas are before you read anything. Ask yourself if you are seeing the same guys over and over again on different sites. 

You need to critically analyze the source before you waste your time reading the bias.  It's skill you need to develop.  Critical analysis is also a skill that is very useful for the investment process, so I suggest you start training your mind to think more critically, instead of accepting all the trash you read and hear. 

It doesn’t pay to tell the truth. You see, the financial media, whether it’s print, broadcast or Internet, wants extremes. You are either bullish on gold or you are not; you are either bullish on the stock market or you are not.

Meanwhile, the reality is that extremes are often dangerous. This mentality of extremes sought by the media serves to position Main Street as investment losers. Meanwhile, Wall Street always wins, as does the media. 

For instance, while I feel gold is headed higher, I also discussed that it is not a hedge against inflation, which upsets the gold bugs.

Furthermore, I emphasize that you need to trade gold’s tremendous volatility in order to reduce risk, only buy it after big sell-offs and sell it after large rallies – again, this upsets the gold bugs who have convinced the investment public to buy-and-hold it with no exit strategy.

Actively managing gold certainly does not bode well for those who sell physical gold. You see, by me recommending gold ETFs to actively manage, the gold bugs don’t benefit financially because they can’t make money selling you physical gold.

This is why guys like Peter Schiff push physical gold. He has an exclusive agreement with the Perth Mint in Australia. But he won’t tell you that you can go through them direct without paying the fees he charges. 

Most of the gold bugs have no idea what they are talking about. But a few of them know the realities of gold. But they won't tell you because they have a financial stake in pitching gold propaganda.  If you haven't already read my piece on gold, I highly recommend it; that is, unless you want to get taken.

See here.

Let me be perfectly clear about this.  99.99999% of the "experts," and the guys who write investment articles online are absolutely clueless.  They are followers.  That is why they all jump on the bandwagon, using the latest buzz words, like "green shoots" that come from CNBC and other hack venues catering to the sheep.  When you see guys piggy-back onto these buzz words, you know they are followers.

I have no idea what "green shoots" means because I don't pay attention to the mainstream media.  And I pave my own path rather than follow that paved by others. 

Members of the media club only care about making money from you. The easiest way to do that is by gaining media exposure. And in order to get such exposure, they will obey the rules of the media, which relate to the financial and political agendas of the media's financial sponsors.

But they also pat each other on the back so as to reinforce their perception of credibility and media clout. 

Make no mistake about it. While Peter Schiff has very little credibility in my book, he has much more credibility than most of the media hacks. But still, if you miss the bull’s eye, you lose. It doesn't matter how close you were. It's the fine details that matter when it comes to making money with investments. 

Why do I state the truth about gold and everything else? I have no agendas attached to my insights. 

All I care about is being right. That's how I get paid.

It is rare that you will find anyone with such a business model because it's extremely difficult to be right with consistency.

Most take the easy road, becoming marketers, while disguising themselves as experts.  This is where the media comes in, because the media positions them as experts. 

The guys in the media club get paid to convince you they are right. They are paid by the sheep who send them money to invest or buy their books which offer nothing other than fluff and hindsight analysis.

At the end of the day, after you have invested with them and lost money, they make money regardless. The media makes money too, regardless how low the stock market goes because you watch, you read, you listen. And that translates into higher prices charged for commercials and advertisements.

I have a mission that, in my opinion is much higher and more rewarding than money. I want to end the exploitation of Main Street by the financial industry.

I developed this passion after seeing how millions of investors were ripped off during the dotcom charade.

What did I do? I left Wall Street in disgust. You aren’t going to find many people who leave the big payouts of Wall Street due to ethics.

That isn't something I am proud of. It's something I had to do. I had no choice.

A couple of years later when I saw the same dangers lurking again, I took two years out of my life (at a huge financial loss) to write America’s Financial Apocalypse as a way to help investors avoid an even bigger catastrophe. 

Did I use the book as a marketing tool to launch my website and newsletter service? No. My website and newsletter only began some three years later (April 2009) after receiving hundreds of email requests and due to the fact that I was being censored from websites. 

Did I use my book to try to get you to buy gold from me? No. Everyone else who wrote books prior to this collapse used them purely as marketing tools. If you read them you know that. Yet, more important, these books offered nothing more than generic useless trash.

Today, many Americans have lost much of what they had, whether it’s their job, home or retirement savings. It is only after your losses does the financial media step in and change from the denial phase to the doomsday mentality.

They do this because Wall Street wants investors to throw in the towel and sell everything so they can buy it on the cheap. You might recall the dotcom charade played out in the same manner.

Sadly, most investors have forgotten.  Most people have short memories. And they are too lazy to research the track records of the "experts" they go to for guidance. 

In the end, it is the laziness of most that is responsible for their misery. Others are simply naive.  If they learn the truth about how things work, they will act on their own behalf. 

Only after you have seen your investments get cut in half will the financial media air views contrary to the bubble mentality. They interview perpetual doomers and others who lack credibility because they’re in the “media club.”

The members of this “media club” stay within the boundaries laid out by the media so that their financial and political agendas are held intact. This is the way it works I can assure you.

You see, America’s entire media industry is controlled by only a few men, so they not only have financial agendas (their revenues come from corporate America and Wall Street), but they also have political agendas.

Accordingly, my clear identification of the problems and solutions to this depression, as well as exposing the massive fraud that occurs on Wall Street and corporate America on a daily basis (unaddressed by Washington and the SEC) would upset the media’s financial and political agendas.

Don’t you think it’s time for you to start asking the reporters from print media such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post, Financial Times, Barron’s, Forbes, Fortune, Business Week, Time Magazine, Reuters, Associated Press, USA Today…and producers and hosts on ABC, CBS, FOX, FBN, NBC, CNBC, MSNBC, CNN, PBS, all of the syndicated radio shows… Why they’ve kept me from warning you?

They continue to interview hacks and clowns who have been wrong over and over. Check their track records and see for yourself.

The media also uses these guys because they know they’ll stay within the political boundaries set forth by media executives, who are aligned with Washington. That is why they won’t tell you the truth – Washington is a mafia with only one political party. That is why they refuse to insist that the Wall Street and banking executives be indicted for securities fraud.

If you don’t take action and demand answers from these hacks, they will continue this game over and over. And you will get SCREWED over and over. 

Do you ever plan to retire? Good luck, because chances are you never will retire if you allow the financial media to continue this circus show. They will partner with Wall Street to screw you in many more charades in the future. I’ll guarantee it.

Isn't it about time you made the effort to check track records, instead of blindly accepting the claims made by the media when they announce another “expert?”

After sacrificing so much financially, I am not in a position to spend the funds required to market myself because marketing is directed towards product/services sales. I don’t sell securities or gold. I deliver the truth, along with my best insights. 

So I’m asking everyone out there who would like to see less trash, fewer hacks, and more of the truth to help me in my mission to protect and empower Main Street against the Wall Street vultures.

I hope each of you will help me in these efforts to encourage the financial media to answer to me. The ONLY way they will let me speak to millions is if you all demand it from them. That is the ONLY way.

You see, the media only cares about money so the more people that insist I be heard, the more viewers and readers they will have which translates into higher ad revenues.

Imagine seeing me on TV expose the fundamental weaknesses of mutual funds on TV. What will the hacks say? How will they respond? They won’t be able to because they will be outmatched by the truth.

Imagine me expose how the media uses Warren Buffet, and in the process causes investors to make poor investment decisions, thinking they can do well by following what Buffett does.

Would you like to see me go head to head with the guys in the media club? Cramer? Schiff?  Etc. etc. You name it. I’ll expose them for who they are.  

Imagine me exposing the excessive fees charged by Bill Gross’s $80 trillion bond fund in front on millions of viewers.

Imagine me calling for criminal indictments for the perpetrators of the multi-trillion real estate-banking Ponzi scheme. How with the hacks on TV respond?

Imagine me calling out the SEC for continuing to protect the big Wall Street criminals. 

Imagine me exposing the real WaMu fraud and insider trading that was unaddressed by the SEC.

Imagine this and much more. If you want to get an idea what I will expose to Main Street, read my archives.

If you want to help me rain on the parade of fraud and extortion by Wall Street, doomers, liars, crooks and idiots, send me an email and I will provide you with an attachment of my track record and email addresses to various media professionals. 

How can they not want to hear from the ONLY person in the world who wrote in a book that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac would collapse and have to be bailed out by the taxpayers – 1.5 years before actually happened! 

Here is just a brief review of my track record.

This isn’t about me. I only list my track record as a way to inform those who have been fooled by the media hacks so you will know the media is hiding valuable, unbiased insights from you.

Already, I know of a few who have helped spread the word about me. These are self-less individuals who care for humanity as much as they care for themselves. I know who some of you are and I appreciate your efforts.

The world needs more people who think of others without focusing on themselves. Today, so many are always focused on “how can it help me” instead of “how can it help everyone.” That mentality is precisely why the masses have been and continue to be exploited. There is no unification, and thus no power by numbers. 

If you choose not to help out, it won’t affect me. I’ll continue to win either way because I know how the media-Wall Street game is played. And I won’t feel bad the next time Main Street gets taken because I’ll know I did what I could. And I can assure you the “next time” isn’t far off. 

If you choose not to help, you are likely to experience Death by Media, because Wall Street and the media will play the same game over and over. And I’ll guarantee you won’t see it coming.


It's time to wake up. Your livelihood depends on it.


Quite simply, the education we provide is priceless. Those who do not receive it are certain to lose a good part if not all of their life savings by falling for the countless con men that seek to win your trust and make up stories. The current gold/doomsday scam is just one example of this. You can be sure that there will be many more scams to come.


So you had better ask yourself the following question…are you able to spot scam artists?


How often do you hear someone spend so much time at work fighting to get the truth out when they should be focusing on sales?

With the exception of Mike’s efforts, it NEVER happens.


Many have been fooled by snake oil salesmen to think they are on your side, when they are really looking to hook you into their sales pitch.


Mike could focus on producing videos that always highlight his amazing track record in order to generate sales, but he doesn’t.

Instead, he spends a great deal of time exposing the liars and con men out there who are duping millions of people with their gold-pumping, doomsday delusions, even though these efforts are costing Mike a great deal of lost sales.




Just remember this down the road once you look back at this period as a huge fraud perpetrated not only by Wall Street, but also by thousands of doomsday, gold-pumping charlatans. If you do not already realize they are scam artists, you will eventually if you take their advice. That is a guarantee.



Mike Stathis remains the lone voice of reason and wisdom for Main Street.
