"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.”

- Henry Ford 

“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.”

- Franklin D. Roosevelt, letter to Col. House, November 21, l933

“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.”

- The National Educator, K.M. Heaton

"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."

- Maurice Samuels, You Gentiles, 1924

“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.”

- David Rockefeller 

“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.

Proof that Zero Hedge Cannot Be Trusted

While checking our web hosting admin panel, a staff member spotted some hits to our site from Zero Hedge linking to one of the articles I had written about Harry Dent. Of course, the link was posted by one of the commenters, as opposed to Zero Hedge. The last thing the deceptive hacks at Zero Hedge would want to do is make any mention of me or anyone else with credibility they fear would expose their deceit and trickery.
Zero Hedge is part of the deceptive network of Internet “patriots,” who are only out to deceive their audience while receiving undisclosed monetary and other forms of compensation in return for pumping up gold and silver, promoting other clowns in exchange for “favors” and other activities.
In short, the individuals behind Zero Hedge are NOT to be trusted. Moreover, the websites they promote fall into the same category. I view them as dishonest clowns with no credible expertise in the investment world, creating drama in order to feed their manipulated audience, much of which comes from Max Keiser and other deceitful clowns.    
After following the link, I came across an article written by another clown posing as someone credible; someone you can trust. His online id is the Mad Hedge Fund Trader. When I saw this name, I recalled receiving at least one email several months ago from an individual who had informed me that he had sent this guy an email discussing me, my track record and how I had been banned. So obviously, this guy knows about me, although you can be assured he would deny it. Remember, these guys are NOT on the side of the people and cannot be trusted. Thus, it is not by mere chance that he has aligned himself with Harry Dent.
If you have not yet read what I had to say about Dent, have a look at this 3-part series.
I’ll get back to the Mad Hedge Fund Trader later. For now, let’s have a look at what he has to say about Harry Dent. After you compare my own analysis of Dent with the strong infomercial-like endorsement from this man (who apparently fears disclosing his name to the public) you will realize what he stands for, and it certainly isn’t you. I truly hope you people wake up before it’s too late. 
Here is what the Mad Hedge Fund Trader has to say about Dent…
“I listen to Harry S. Dent, not because he is an iconoclast, one of the few original thinkers out there, and a complete wild man, although these are all admirable qualities to be found in a global strategist. I listen to him because he has been right.”
Did you read that correctly? He claims that Dent is iconoclast. Not true. Dent is the complete opposite. Dent is not an original thinker. His obsessiveness on demographics to explain investment cycles is nearly as old as the investment markets themselves. “Wild man”? The only “wild” I see in Dent are from his predictions.
He continues. “He has been right.” Yea, like a broken clock.
See here to refresh your memory on Dent's track record.
He then goes on to promote Dent’s books. I’ll spare you from this portion of this infomercial.  
“His unique blend of demographic research, identification of global consumer spending patterns, and long term cycle analysis, really makes Harry one of a kind.”
Hardly. In fact, Dent’s entire methodology is something I would expect to see from the U.S. Census; hardly impressive.
“Foreign governments, major hedge funds, financial advisors, and individuals are all just wild about Harry. They have found his advice indispensable when navigating the sticky shoals of international finance.”
Good God. Now I feel like I’m watching an infomercial by Kevin Trudeau. I would like to see the name of a single hedge fund that respects anything Dent has to say. If this can be produced, I would like to see the fund’s long-term performance. As for financial advisors, many are sheep so I won’t doubt this.
If Dent really understands what is going on, why didn’t he release his depression book in 2006 or 2007?
Oh that’s right. Dent was too busy promoting his book, The Great Bubble Boom Ahead during that time. As you will recall, this book predicted Dow 30,000 by 2008.  
Remember, this is a man who uses Elliot Wave witch craft to predict market collapses, similar to Robert Prechter, and we all know his track record.
See here to refresh your memory. Keep in mind that I have not finished reporting on Prechter, so please be patient.
Now take a look at this line by the Mad Hedge Fund Trader...
“Stock markets on crack are about to join Lindsey Lohan and Charlie Sheen in rehab.”
If I didn’t know better, I would have thought it was written by Martin Weiss, Bill Bonner of the Daily Reckoning, or one of their goons. This is not how legitimate investment pros talk. The wording is meant to connect with sheep that spend more time watching American Idol and TMZ than anything else. Do you see how he is trying to hook the audience? 
“Harry didn’t bat an eyelash when he looked me straight in the eye and told me that the Dow was going to 3,300 by 2014.”
Yes, just like the Dow hit 30,000 in 2008 like Dent predicted. The fact is that NO ONE IN THE WORLD can predict an exact number for the stock market years in advance. If they do it is complete luck.
By now you are probably familiar with my market forecasting track record. I use many different variables to forecast the market and each variable is weighted differently depending on the time frame and other factors. Yet, I cannot even tell you the highs and lows the Dow will make by 2014.
But I can tell you this. Short of some type of unprecedented event, like World War III, I can guarantee you the Dow won’t come close to 3,300 by 2014. In fact, I’m willing to bet that it stands a far better chance of making all-time highs by then than reaching 3,300.    
The lines of panic continue…
“There will be no place to hide, as this will be a global event, and that reallocation towards more defensive sectors will be a waste of time. The Australian stock market will vaporize from 6,000 to 1,000, while Hong Kong will get pared back from 24,000 to 8,000. China is the greatest bubble and could take the biggest hit. The rising middle class will not take their first ever big recession lightly, and coming political turmoil is a given. Canada, with a great resource base behind it, a new government, and rising interest rates, will hold up better than most.”
“Yes, Harry Dent is predicting that crude will fall from $115 a barrel today (and $128 for Brent), down to $15 by 2015. Yikes!”
“Coming deflation will cut the inflationistas off at the knees. A strong dollar sends those looking for alternatives into the Looney Bin. Take these frills away, and the barbarous relic becomes just a heavy rock that will take it from $1,550 an ounce, down to $250-$400. Gold bugs are about to get doused with insecticide.
As for silver? How about a move from $50 to $4-$8?”
These “predictions” are not at all far-fetched, although the most important ones are. I have been saying the same thing about gold and silver myself as you will recall. It’s not the work of genius. It’s just common sense.
As for oil, Dent is merely going back to the price in the 1990s, so $15 oil is not completely out of the question, although highly unlikely over the next several years. But anything can happen with oil. I will say this.
If in fact oil were to collapse to $15 over the next few years, I will assure you that it won’t stay there for too long, and I will be buying up oil securities like a mad man. This is much different than what Dent is saying. He claims these ridiculously low oil prices will represent a new long-term trend. In America’s Financial Apocalypse, I recall discussing that oil will eventually head back down in price, but certainly not to $15, at least not as long as war in the Middle East continues. 
The unidentified Mad Hedge Fund Trader continues his Harry Dent infomercial…
“To prove that Harry is willing to put his money where his mouth is, he is advising the Dent Tactical ETF (DENT) which mirrors and executes on his views. The fund is up 20% in the past 12 months.”
How does this prove he is putting his money where his mouth is? This guy is either a complete idiot or else a complete liar. Putting your money where your mouth is would only apply if Dent funded the ETF with his own money, which of course is not the case.
At least Martin Weiss actually did put his own money in an account that was used to trade his horrendous recommendations. In no way is Dent doing this. Perhaps the reason is that he realizes his investment performance is just as miserable as that of Weiss.
Furthermore, DENT is NOT up by 20% over the past 12 months, nor was it a few days ago when this clown wrote the piece. I detailed DENT’s miserable performance previously.
As the chart below illustrates, DENT is only up by just over 10% over the past year. More important, the S&P 500 Index is up by more than 23%, or more than 100% more than DENT. 

It should be obvious to you by now that the Mad Hedge Fund Trader is a complete liar and a clown. Similar to Dent, I’m willing to bet that he couldn’t trade his way out of a whore house even if he had $1 million.
Finally, he goes on to explain why Dent has no idea what he is talking about.
“Harry was originally a “good ole boy” from South Carolina, who like Federal Reserve governor Ben Bernanke, improbably went off to Harvard where he got his MBA. His career then took him to the top notch management consulting firm, Bain & Co. After years of consulting with Fortune 100 companies, he found gaping holes in their understanding of the global economy. That spurred him to take off and create his own research boutique to address these grievous shortfalls in understanding.”
A Harvard MBA means that you have been inducted into the Jewish network. And the last thing you understand is how to make money, at least by legal means. 
“To learn more about Harry S. Dent, please go to his website.”
The question is whether this guy has received compensation for promoting Dent, his useless book and his disastrous fund. I’m willing to bet he has or will receive some type of benefit of monetary value, which is illegal unless disclosed. 
[Note: the staff of Zero Hedge primarily consists of Jewish individuals. This explains how they have aligned with the media and are very cozy with Max Keiser. In fact, I’m willing to bet that the Mad Hedge Fund Trader is also Jewish. Why might that be important? If you know anything about the strength and inner workings of the Jewish network, it explains much of what goes on behind the scenes.]
Everywhere you turn, there seems to be no escape from this fraud; Wall Street, the media, corporate America; Washington. They all work together, each with a different role. Perhaps the most vile component of this cycle of fraud is that the media not only plays a large role along with Wall Street, it also comes out as a shining hero after the fraud has occurred, positioning itself as being on your side after failing to warn you or disclose the truth.
The same liars and jackasses that failed to report what was going on before and during the financial crisis are making millions selling drama-filled books about the collapse. They even get movie deals, like Andrew Sorkin. People need to stop and think carefully about this. It’s disgusting. And it confirms that most people are too ignorant to see the writing on the wall, all but ensuring the cycle of fraud will repeat in perpetuity.

Zero Hedge is similar to all of the other faux heroes, who leverage the frustration and anger of the recent financial apocalypse in order to put money in their pockets, all while deceiving and lying to its audience of sheep.
You need to ask yourself two critical questions about Zero Hedge.
Where were they BEFORE this crisis appeared?
They only started writing in late 2008. Why? To exploit the disaster in order to make money from the sheep by selling ads, getting paid by gold and silver dealers for pumping these metals, and pushing certain investment websites/services for compensation. Yet, their sheep audience has no idea how they are being fooled with the useless drama, lies, manipulation and lack of any real value from the content on their web site.

Why is Zero Hedge promoted by the media?

Remember, the media promotes individuals that serve its interests which are to deceive the investment public so as to lower the hurdle for Wall Street to take the money of Main Street.
In conclusion, this article illustrates the critical need for you to spread my work around, because people are being lied to and fooled in many inconspicuous ways.
I can assure you that if I chose to waste my time reading Zero Hedge regularly, I would spot deception, manipulation and lies on a daily basis.
Remember, you are a reflection of the company you keep. Notice the recommended sites posted on Zero Hedge. I have checked each one and I would not trust any of them. They are all in the same network. They work together. You must understand that or else convince yourself. Research it for yourself and you will see.
The clowns at Zero Hedge will not refute this article because they know they are clowns.
Remember here who has the track record…not just a track record but the leading track record on earth.
Remember as well who was recommending gold many years before Zero Hedge existed, yet has never received a penny from gold dealers or gold ads.
And remember who has been warning people about the myths, lies and schemes propagated by gold pumpers and false heroes like Zero Hedge. We have added an entry about Zero Hedge in our "Warning About Bozos, Hacks, Snake Oil Salesmen and Faux Heroes" piece which is an ongoing listing of crooks, liars and con artists.
"Zero Hedge*[1]

 - false heroes who have duped their sheep audience using the same tactic as other profiteers; detect fear, anger and desperation of the population --> market yourself as a critic of the villains --> once you have sucked in the fish, time to reel them in --> promote clowns with newsletters (get paid in some way for promos) --> pump gold and sell gold ads (for instance, one of the ZH clowns has a gold pumping hedge fund) --> your audience will be suckered to think you are their hero so they will buy ZH shirts, etc...BUT NEVER EXPOSE THE ROOT CAUSE.

ZH is a gold-pumping site run by Jews which claims to have "inside knowledge" about the financial industry, yet another lie. In addition, at least one of the main contributors to the site was barred from the securities industry for insider trading, while at least another runs a hedge fund which we believe is committing front running by pumping ZH sheep to buy gold. They are connected to Alex Jones, Max Keiser and other disinfo agents and profiteers who exploit the anger and frustration of their audience in order to suck money from them in a variety of ways.
Similar to all gold pumpers, they spread delusions of hyperinflation in the U.S. (which as we have shown in impossible) and claim that gold hedges against inflation (which again is not true).  
They ask for donations AND post advertisements AND sell hats and mugs and shirts as though they were celebrities, all while promoting con artists and pumping gold; tightly connected to 100s of con artists. Their blog roll serves as a good list of sites and people to avoid, as they are all sophomoric clowns and profiteers with no track record to speak of. We cannot emphasize enough how deceitful these individuals are. Remember, ZH did NOT exist prior to the financial crisis and now they have come in to herd the sheep. That is what you call the epitome of opportunism. Stay away at all cost."
