"There are two sorts of wealth-getting, as I have said; one is a part of household management, the other is retail trade: the former necessary and honorable, while that which consists in exchange is justly censured; for it is unnatural, and a mode by which men gain from one another. The most hated sort, and with the greatest reason, is usury, which makes a gain out of money itself, and not from the natural object of it. For money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest. And this term interest, which means the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money because the offspring resembles the parent. Wherefore of modes of getting wealth this is the most unnatural."
- Politics, Aristotle, 350 B.C.
"The Jew alone regards his race as superior to humanity, and looks forward not to its ultimate union with other races, but to its triumph over them all and to its final ascendancy under the leadership of a tribal Messiah."
- Goldwin Smith, The Jewish Question, October 1881
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”
- President Woodrow Wilson 1916
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
- David Rockefeller, Baden-Baden, Germany 1991
“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”

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

“One of the least understood strategies of the world revolution now moving rapidly toward its goal is the use of mind control as a major means of obtaining the consent of the people who will be subjects of the New World Order.”

"We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers for ever. Nothing that you will do will meet our needs and demands. We will for ever destroy because we need a world of our own, a God-world, which it is not in your nature to build."

“We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.”

“Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government.”
- Dr. Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference, Evians, France, 1991
"Never argue with stupid people. They will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience." –Mark Twain
If you want to begin to understand and appreciate the work of Mike Stathis, from his market forecasts and securities analysis to his political and economic analysis, you will first need to learn how to think clearly. For many, this will be a cleansing process that could take quite a long time to complete depending on each individual.
The best way to begin to clear your mind is to first move forward with this series of steps:
1. GET RID OF YOUR TV SET (at least cancel your cable)
2. REFUSE TO USE YOUR PHONE TO TEXT
3. DO NOT USE A "SMART PHONE" (or at least do not use your phone to access the internet)
4. STAY AWAY FROM SOCIAL MEDIA
The cleansing process will take time but you can hasten the process by being proactive in exercising your mind.
You should also be aware of a very common behavior exhibited by humans who have been exposed to the various aspects of modern society. This behavior occurs when an individual overestimates his abilities and knowledge, while underestimating his weaknesses and lack of understanding. This behavior has been coined the "Dunning-Kruger Effect" after to sociologists who described it in a research publication. See here.
Many people today think they are virtual experts on every topic they regard with relevance. The reason for this illusory behavior is because these individuals typically allow themselves to become brainwashed by various media outlets. The more information these individuals obtain on these topics from the media, the more qualified they feel they are in these subjects, without realizing that the media is not a valid source with which to use for understanding something. The media always has bias and can never be relied on to represent the full truth.
A perfect example of the Dunning-Kruger Effect can be seen with many individuals who listen to talk radio shows. These shows are politically biased and consist of individuals who resemble used car salesmen more than intellectuals. These talking heads brainwash their audience with cherry-picked facts, misstatements and lies regarding relevant issues such as healthcare, immigration, Social Security, Medicaid, economics, science, and so forth. They also select guests for interview based on the agendas they wish to fulfill with their advertisers.
Once their audience has been indoctrinated by these propagandists, they feel qualified to discuss these topics on the same level as a real authority, without realizing that they obtained their understanding from individuals who are employed as professional liars and manipulators by the media. Another good example of the Dunning-Kruger Effect can be seen upon examination of political pundits, stock market and economic analysts on TV. They talk a good game because they are professional speakers. But once you examine their track record, it is clear that these individuals are largely wrong, but they have developed an inflated sense of expertise and knowledge on topics for which they continuously demonstrate their incompetence.
We highly recommend that you study this masterpiece in great detail so that you are better able to use logic and reason.Although we recommend you read and study The Allegory of the Cave, you can get a flavor for its meaning by watching the following video.
If you can learn how to think like a philosopher, specifically one of the great ancient Greek philosophers, it is highly unlikely that you will ever be fooled by con artists like those who make ridiculous and unfounded claims in order to pump gold and silver, the typical get-rich-quick or multi-level marketing (MLM) crowd.
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
King James Bible - Matthew 7:15
"It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled." –Mark Twain
All Viewpoints Are Not Created Equal Just because something is published in print, online or aired in the broadcast media does not make it accurate. In fact, more often than not the larger the audience, the more likely the content is either inaccurate or slanted. The next time you read something about economics or investments, you should ask two main questions in order to assess the credibility of the source. Is the source biased in any way? That is, do they have any agendas which would provide any type of benefit accounting for their views? Most individuals either sell ads on their site or are dealers of precious metals or securities. That means their views are biased and cannot be relied upon.
Is your source is credible?
Most people associate credibility with name-recognition. But more often than not, name-recognition serves as a predictor of bias if not lack of credibility because the more a name is recognized, the more the individual has been plastered in the media. And every intelligent person knows that individuals who have been provided with media exposure because they are either naive or clueless. The media positions these types of individuals as “credible experts” in order to please its financial sponsors; Wall Street.
Instead of name-recognition or media celebrity status, you must determine whether your source has relevant experience on Wall Street as opposed to being self-taught. But this is just a basic hurdle that in itself by no means ensures the source is competent or credible. More important, always examine the track record of your source in depth, looking for accuracy and specific forecasts rather than open-ended statements. You must also look for timing since a broken clock is always right once a day. Finally, make sure they do not cherry-pick their best calls. Always examine their entire track record.
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
King James Bible - Matthew 7:15
The above questions require only slight modification for use in determining the credibility of sources that discuss other topics, such as politics, healthcare, etc.We have compiled the most extensive publication exposing hundreds of con men pertaining to the financial publishing and securities industry, although we also cover numerous con men in the media and other front groups since they are all associated in some way with each other.
There is perhaps no one else in the world capable of shedding the full light on these con men other than Mike Stathis. Mike has been studying the indistry for well over a decade. Alhough he has published numerous articles and videos addressing this dark side of the industry, the entire collection can be found in our ENCYCLOPEDIA of Bozos, Hacks, Snake Oil Salesmen and Faux Heroes.
At AVA Investment Analytics, we don't try to pump gold, silver or equities like many others you see because we are not promoters or marketers. And we do not receive any compensation whatsoever (including from ads) from our content. We provide individual investors, financial advisers, analysts and fund managers with world-class research, education and unique insight.
If you listen to the media, most likely it is costing you hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost money at minimum over the course of your lifetime. The deceit, lies and useless guidance from the financial media certainly is a large contributor of these losses to the sheep you pay attention.
But a good deal of lost wealth comes in the form of excessive consumerism which the media seeks to impose on its audience. You aren’t going to know that you’re being brainwashed or that you have lost $1 million or $2 million over your life time due to the media, but I can guarantee you that with rare exception this is the reality for those who are naïve enough to waste time on the media.
It gets worse. By listening to the media, you are likely to also suffer ill health effects through the lack of timely coverage of toxic prescription drugs or through the ridiculous medical shows, all of which are supportive of the medical-industrial complex.
And if you seek out the so-called "alternative media" you might make the mistake of relying on con men like Kevin Trudeau or Alex Jones. This could be a deadly decision. As bad as traditional media is, the so-called "alternative media" is even worse.
Why Does the Media Air Liars and Con Men?
The goal of the media is NOT to serve its audience because the audience does NOT pay the bills.
The goal of the media is to please its sponsors, or the companies that spend huge dollars buying ads, and in order for companies to justify these expenses, they need the media to represent their cause. The media does this by airing idiots and con men who mislead and confuse their audience.
By engaging in "journalistic fraud," the media steers its audience into the arms of its advertisers because the audience is now misled and confused, so in the case of the financial media, it seeks the assistance of Wall Street brokerage firms, mutual funds, insurance companies, precious metals dealers. This is why advertisers pay big money to be promoted in the financial media.
We see the same thing on a more obvious note in the so-called "alternative media," which is really a remanufactured version of the so-called "mainstream media." Do not be fooled. There is no such thing as the "alternative media."
In order to be considered "media" you must have content that has widespread channels of distribution. Thus, all "media" is widely distributed and the same powers that control the distribution of the so-called "mainstream media" also control the distribution of the so-called "alternative media."
The claim that there is an "alternative media" is merely a sales pitch designed to capture the audience that has since given up on the "mainstream media." The tactic is a very common one used by con men.
The same tactic is used by Washington to convince naive voters that there are meaningful differences between the nation's two political parties. In reality, both parties are essentially the same when it comes to issues that matter most (trade policy, healthcare and war). Anyone who tells you anything different simply isn't thinking straight.
On this site, we expose the lies and the liars in the media. We discuss and reveal the motives and track record of the media’s hand-selected charlatans with a focus on the financial media.
No one has generated a more accurate track record in the investment markets over the past several years than Mike Stathis. Yet, the financial media wants nothing to do with Stathis.
You aren't even going to hear him on the radio being interviewed.
You aren't going to see him mentioned on any websites either.
You won't read or hear of his remarkable track record unless you read about it on this website or read his books.
You should be wondering why this might be. Some of you already know the answer.
The media has banned Mike Stathis because the trick is to air clowns so that the audience will be steered into the hands of the media's financial sponsors - Wall Street and gold dealers.
And as for the radio shows and websites that either don't know about Stathis or don't care to hear what he has to say, the fact is that they are so stupid that they assume those who are plastered in the media are credible. And since they haven't seen or heard Stathis in the media, even if they come across him, they automatically assume he's a nobody in the investment world simply because he has no media exposure.
Well, if media exposure was a testament to knowledge, credibility and excellent track records, Peter Schiff's clients would be a lot happier when they looked at their account balance.
Others only care about pitching what’s deemed as the “hot” topic because this sells ads in terms of more site visits or reads. This is why you come across so many websites based on doom and conspiratorial horse shit run by con artists looking to cash in on ads.
We have donated countless hours and huge sums of money towards the pursuit of exposing the con men, lies and fraud. We continue this mission but we cannot continue it forever without your assistance.
We have been banned by virtually every media platform in the U.S and every website (mainly because we expose the truth about gold and silver).
We have been banned from use of email marketing providers.
The fact is that the Jewish Mafia has declared war on us because we have exposed the realities of the U.S. government, Wall Street and corporate America.
Note that we only began discussing the role of Jews in criminality by 2009, three years AFTER we had been black-listed by the media, so no one can say that our criticism of the Jewish Mafia has led to being black-listed, not that it would even be acceptable.
You can talk about the Italian Mafia, and Jewish Hollywood can make 100s of movies about it...
BUT YOU CANNOT TALK ABOUT THE JEWISH MAFIA.
We rely on you to help spread the word about us. Just remember this. We don’t have to do what we are doing.
We could do as everyone else and focus on making money. We are doing sacrificing everything because in this day and age, unfortunately, the truth is revolutionary. It is also critical in order to prevent the complete enslavement of world citizenry.
On Exposure: No one who has significant exposure can be trusted because those who are responsible for permitting such exposure have allowed it for a very good reason, and that reason does not serve your best interests.
On Spotting Frauds: Whenever you wish to know whether someone can be trusted, always remember this golden rule..."a man is judged by the company he keeps."
This is a very important rule to remember because con men almost always belong to the same network.
You will see the same con artists referencing each other, on blog rolls and so forth.
This article represents the first in a series that will discuss the realities about Robert Prechter and his track record. In this article I am going to show you a recent interview given by Prechter on Tech Ticker.
Before you watch this trash, I wanted to say a few things about Tech Ticker. Let me be clear. Tech Ticker is another media outlet that has stayed completely away from me, despite the fact that they know who I am and they know my track record.
How do I know this?
A reader contacted Henry Blodget and made sure he knew about me and my track record. The individual forwarded the email exchange which I will be publishing in the future, along with many other emails saved over the past few years. Moreover, I contacted Blodget numerous times in 2008 and 2009.
[I even sent him excerpts from my two books, similar to what I have sent 100s of journalists. Anyone who has read these books should now be 100% convinced that everything I have been saying about the media is true]
Of course, a responsible journalist would have found out about me by conducting thorough research. By now you should realize that journalists do NOT research their sources adequately. To do so would conflict with their mission to deceive Main Street and support the agendas of Wall Street.
Even Michael Lewis apparently never bothered to research me or come across my books when writing his hyped-up book that claimed only a small handful of people could have known to short the mortgage stocks. In fact, if Lewis had bothered to conduct proficient and independent research rather than having relied on the media, he would have seen that everyone in the world could have made a huge amount of money by reading my books. You might recall that I specifically advised readers to short Fannie, Freddie, several other mortgage stocks, the banks, GE, GM and homebuilders.
As a result, Lewis is as useless and irresponsible as everyone associated with the media. Ironically, Lewis is now a contributing writer to several media publications, precisely where he belongs.
[In case you’re wondering, I didn’t waste my time or money buying Lewis’ trash. I’m not interested in books that dramatize events AFTER the opportunities are gone. I’m only interested in books with substance and insight. I did see his interview on 60 Minutes. This is how I know about his misinformed claims]
As a caveat, I tried reading his book Liar’s Poker several years ago when I was new in the business. I hoped I would learn something relevant about the investing process of at least something relevant about the industry. After reading a couple of chapters, I was bored with the fluff and repetition and tossed the book. Yet, most investors praise the book.
As an investor, if you praise a book as a “Wall Street great,” it had better be Graham and Dodd’s Security Analysis or some other book that provides investment insight. Otherwise, truly knowledgeable investors will look at you as a fool.
How did Tech Ticker come about anyway? It was co-founded by the infamous former Merrill Lynch Internet equities analyst Henry Blodget, who, along with other greedy analysts pumped up numerous dotcom stocks to ridiculous valuations. We all know what happened soon after. So if you are looking for one of the men responsible for your losses due to the dotcom collapse, you can begin with Mr. Blodget. firstname.lastname@example.org
As is always the case, the SEC permitted Blodget to pay a fine without admitting any wrong-doing. As part of the settlement, Blodget was banned from the securities industry.
By no means was Blodget the only villain during the dotcom era. However, part of the settlement should have banned him from working in the financial media since there really isn’t a whole lot of difference between the stock manipulation that takes place in the media versus that engaged in by Wall Street analysts.
[Note the large number of financial professionals who go over to work in the media after their careers have come to a dead end (CNBC is a great place to find several examples, despite their claims how successful they were)]
The other co-founder of Tech Ticker is a guy from one of these Internet advertising sites (I believe DoubleClick, although I am not certain) notorious for infiltrating spyware onto users’ PCs. Along with Blodget, Tech Ticker is often co-host by Aaron Task, a former thestreet.com clown under Jim Cramer. Several other former thestreet.com clowns have since joined Teck Ticker, solidifying its poor reputation, bias and censorship.
Clowns from other media publications have also joined Blodget and Co. For instance, last year, as Newsweek faced imminent bankruptcy without further assistance from its owner, The Washington Post, Sidney Harman bought the company for $1, assuring that America’s media monopoly remained in the same circle of Jewish domination. As part of the attempts to stop the massive losses, Dan Gross, former “economic editor” at Newsweek was let go.
It wasn’t long before Gross landed a new gig using his Jewish ties. Gross was offered some type of deal by Yahoo!, where he writes frequently for Yahoo! Finance, adding to the uselessness of Yahoo! content which has aided in the decline of the site. In addition, Gross also co-hosts Tech Ticker.
If you examine the staff at Tech Ticker and its affiliated websites like Business Insider, and Silicon Alley, you will notice a predominance of Jewish staff and contributors.
Without coincidence, about 90% of tech Ticker interviews over the past 3+ years (since inception) have been by given Jewish “experts,” all of them with terrible track records.
How do I know? Because I have someone on staff who has watched nearly every one of these interviews and has saved 100s.
Along with Tech Ticker, if you peruse Business Insider, you will see hundreds of contributors who submit articles, providing them with massive exposure, despite the fact that 99% of these contributors are either complete amateurs, or else they have terrible track records. It’s the same circle of con artists and deceptive individuals who have fooled so many to think they are on your side and they can be trusted, when the reality is much different.
The censorship I continue to face threatens YOUR ability to receive guidance from me, or else to receive it at 10X higher costs, so if you value my insights, I suggest you start making waves and don’t stop.
Now let’s get back to Prechter.
For those who aren’t familiar with Robert Prechter, consider yourself very fortunate, as his track record is arguably the worst of all of the media’s clowns.
Looking at his methods partly explains why his results have been so abysmal. Prechter’s Elliot Wave hocus pocus appears to resemble witch craft more than reason.
For instance, Prechter advised his subscribers to short the U.S. stock market using 200% leverage in November 2009. Since then the market has advanced by some 30%. And because Prechter has remained bearish since then, assuming you had listened to his brilliant advice, you’d be down by 60% not counting margin interest expenses.
But that’s not all. Prechter has insisted that the Dow is headed to below 1000. In fact, he has been saying this for several years. Stop and think for a moment if you had listened to him.
Let’s take a look at some of the predictions Prechter came up with after he gazing into his broken crystal ball.
(1) On June 9, 2003, Prechter stated...“…the bear market is very young. I think 18 months from now, the financial and economic landscape will be very different from what they are today. The optimists will be gone.”
(2) On June 30, 2003, Prechter stated… The Dow is currently headed down. Ultimate target: “at least below 4,000.” At the time the Dow was over 9000. Over the next four years, the Dow gained more than 5200 for gains of nearly 60%; that is if you used Prechter as a contrarian indicator.
(3) On May 11, 2004, Prechter continued with his doom and gloom warnings based on his wave hocus pocus…a “panic should set in” later this month.”
(4) On October 13, 2004, Prechter stated…“One thing I’ve repeated consistently is that the great bear market will take the DJIA at least below 1,000 and likely to below 400. Precedents for this severe a decline are the English stock prices in 1720-1722 and American stock prices in 1929-1932.”
(5) Obviously frustrated with his extremist approach, apparently Prechter decided to go with the odds, knowing that most market collapses have occurred in the month of October. On October 20, 2005, he stated…“Expect the market to develop into a crash, with panic increasing into Halloween and then culminating within hours. From that low, the market should stage a dramatic three-day bounce for wave four and then resume declining to lower lows for wave five. This decline should leave 10,000 behind for good. Investors stay in cash; speculators stay short.”
Wow, this guy sounds like a complete nut. Let me explain. There is no one in the world who can predict exact details of any sell-off, such as what Prechter has attempted with his use of words like “within hours,” and “three-day bounce.” This is truly fortune-telling at its worst.
(6) On November 25, 2009, Prechter advised his sheep to short the market using 200% leverage. This is completely irresponsible by the most lax standards of investment prudence.
(7) On January 21, 2010, Prechter states…“2010 is the year when the bear market in stocks returns in full force. …a meaningful close below [Dow] 10,489 should see a similar collapse to new bear market lows.”
(8) Then on June 17, 2010, Prechter states…“The topping process is over for the countertrend rally that started in the first quarter of 2009. The next leg lower that commenced in April should now deliver a decline that will ultimately be bigger than the 2007-2009 sell-off.”
So what happened? The same that always seems to happen when Prechter predicts a market decline; the market soared!
(9) On July 15, 2010, Prechter states… “The selling pressure will abate at times, but by the end of 2010, stock prices should be much lower. …Experienced traders should be short the S&P 500 Index…”
Now let’s have a look at the performance of the market after Prechter’s advice. After studying this chart, it should be clear that Prechter is one of the worst market forecasters in history.
As you can see, Prechter is like the other perma-bears, who continue to cry wolf for many years as their naïve followers miss out on tremendous gains.
Inevitably, the market runs into problems as it has in the past. At that time, Prechter is right; well kind of.
You see, when the Dow was making its lows at around 6441 in March 2009, Prechter was like Schiff, Roubini, Faber and the other perma-bear clowns who insisted it would fall much lower. They advised their naïve sheep to stay out of the market while I advised investors to begin buying at the bottom.
These guys only know one direction and it’s always down, give or take a few “bear traps.” In fact, these guys have been calling the market’s 85% rise a bear trap for over a year now.
Without a doubt, I can guarantee you these extremists will all be preaching doom until the day they die. After all, a good salesman sticks to his pitch. He practices it over and over like a machine. That is precisely what these guys do.
So with so many “great” predictions, let’s see what Prechter has to say now.
I present to you the dog-and-pony act known as Tech Ticker. While you’re watching, notice how at certain points, Task and Blodget seem to be laughing at Prechter under their breath. You see, these guys realize how awful Prechter’s track record is. But they are simply riding the media gravy train.
Remember Weiss’ track record? Click here to see it.
Note Prechter's witch craft-like rationale.
Did he discuss valuation?
Did he discuss relative improvements in economic data?
Did he discuss any specific forecasts?
Did he discuss any critical support levels?
Of course not! Prechter’s forecasts resemble the accuracy of a blindfolded man throwing darts.
I saved the best for last. Let’s have a look at some of the comments by viewers.
(click on images for larger view)
Apparently, many people are beginning to view Prechter based on his track record. This might explain why he has ramped up his advertising efforts over the past year.
Little do his subscribers know that the majority of the huge fees they are paying for his misguided forecasts are going to ads.
Of course, I can imagine that his subscribers have much bigger concerns, like the losses to their portfolio.
I encourage you to tell Tech Ticker what you think of Prechter and the rest of the clowns they air, all with the intent to screw those who are naive enough to line up for this trash.
