"There are two sorts of wealth-getting, as I have said; one is a part of household management, the other is retail trade: the former necessary and honorable, while that which consists in exchange is justly censured; for it is unnatural, and a mode by which men gain from one another. The most hated sort, and with the greatest reason, is usury, which makes a gain out of money itself, and not from the natural object of it. For money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest. And this term interest, which means the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money because the offspring resembles the parent. Wherefore of modes of getting wealth this is the most unnatural."

- Politics, Aristotle, 350 B.C.

"The Jew alone regards his race as superior to humanity, and looks forward not to its ultimate union with other races, but to its triumph over them all and to its final ascendancy under the leadership of a tribal Messiah."

“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”

- President Woodrow Wilson 1916

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”

- David Rockefeller, Baden-Baden, Germany 1991

“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”

"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.”

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

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.

The Nonsense from Schiff Continues

Today, I’m going to show you just how misguided Peter Schiff remains. As expected, Schiff continues to cling onto his one-way investment approach, which is focused on extremes. 

I am convinced that Peter will go to his death bed proclaiming the same things as he has over several years.
As you might appreciate, things change and investments must be managed to account for these changes. However, as any good salesman would do, Schiff sticks to extremes, while never altering his course no matter how bad his “strategies” might look because extremes are what lure in the sheep, who have very little ability to think for themselves.
Below is a recent newsletter from EuroPacific Capital released on May 18th, where Schiff discusses the dollar, euro, gold and oil. Let’s have a look.
“Last week, the European Central Bank abandoned all pretense that the euro would be the worthy heir of the Deutsche mark; based on the enormity of the nearly $1 trillion bailout of Greece and the moral hazard it creates for other spendthrift member-states, the euro is instead on its way to becoming the worthy heir of the drachma. While the bailout was intended to restore calm to the continent, thereby strengthening the euro, the result is a currency that has lost its shot at glory. Like Terry Malloy... it coulda been a contender.”
“Prior to this bailout, many investors – myself included – held to the belief that the German-led eurozone would be more fiscally responsible than countries whose governments have unilateral control over their own currencies. Given the decentralized political structure of the eurozone and the independence of the ECB, it was assumed that Western Europe would be unlikely, and perhaps unable, to inflate its way out of debt. As a result of this assumption, Europeans have enjoyed low interest rates and favorable exchange rates since the euro's introduction.”  
I want you to read this passage from Schiff, as he attempts to explain the problems which resulted in Greece’s crisis…
“However, many member-states, Greece first among them, abused the borrowing privileges conferred by a strong currency and, to put it bluntly, bit off more than they could chew. Rather than allowing Greece to default, which would have put real teeth into Europe’s previously untested commitment to fiscal responsibility, Europe proved it was all bark and no bite. The net effect has been to demonstrate that the ECB will monetize the debts of any member-state that has borrowed too much. As this understanding sinks in around the globe, the euro just sinks.”
Apparently, Mr. Schiff really has no idea what is going on in Greece. This is a nation that has had internal issues for several years. Greeks have been protesting national pension woes for many years.
Furthermore, nowhere does Schiff mention that U.S. banks pushed Greece over the edge with refinanings and other transactions that turned out to be devastating. Of course, you don’t hear about that in the media because there has been a big cover-up. Mark my words, it will come out down the road.
I know for a fact that Goldman Sachs was involved in helping the Greek debt crisis escalate. And I suspect that many of the other banks were involved as well. 
Next, Schiff goes on to discuss the euro…
“Unfortunately, many are mistaking this euro weakness for dollar strength. A quick glance at the price of gold – which has made new highs in both currencies – quickly disproves this myth. The fact is that both the dollar and the euro are losing value. At the moment, the euro is losing value faster; however, in the race to the bottom, my money is still on the dollar to win.”
Schiff continues to make the same mistake he has for years by implying that the dollar and euro are linked to gold. As Peter knows, the U.S. left the gold standard in the early 1970s. Since then, the dollar became linked to oil. Gold’s rise versus the euro’s recent weakness is a reflection of panic. As I have discussed before, gold rises (or outperforms, meaning it does not have to rise, but it will not fall as much as other assets) under the following conditions:
         Stock market sell-offs
         Global crisis
However, under these instances, gold serves merely as a place to park money temporarily. Thereafter, gold prices fall.
As discussed in America’s Financial Apocalypse, gold is very volatile and should be traded. Institutions know this well. If you examine the surge in gold following market sell-offs and global crises, you will see that the price comes back down shortly after.
As for gold’s long-term upward trend, this may be explained by noting that gold has been in a bull market since late 2001. 
Moreover, it has experienced some characteristics of a bubble over the past year. This bubble has been due mainly to various myths and scare tactics preached by thousands of gold bugs.
The fact is that the dollar is displaying strength versus the euro for good reason. Schiff claims that people are mistaking the dollar’s strength for the euro’s weakness.
Peter, this is precisely why one currency rises against another. It’s all relative.
In fact, Schiff apparently has not bothered to examine the chart of the USD/EUR, for if he had, he would see that the dollar is approaching a major longer-term trend reversal. I alerted newsletter subscribers of this recently.
Schiff continues…
“It is generally believed that the US government will never default on its debt, no matter how much red ink it generates nor how onerous servicing that debt might become. For now, the rest of the world seems content to buy our debt – despite the fact that they are paid next to nothing for the favor. To those who have raised concerns that foreign buying may someday cease, the Fed has clearly telegraphed its intention to print as much money as needed to buy up any debt that remains unsold. Under these conditions, those who now question the future validity of the euro without casting similar warnings on the dollar are employing a shameless double standard.”
“For all of its new faults, the euro remains more reliable than the dollar. Once the re-rating process is complete, and the euro finds a new floor, I expect the dollar to resume its relative slide against its transatlantic cousin. Meanwhile, I expect both currencies to continue to lose value relative to gold and other key currencies. Given the euro’s damaged reputation, I expect pledges from European governments to rein in budget deficits and from the ECB to defend the value of its currency. While the long-term implementation of such commitments may prove lacking, a short-term rally in the euro should ensue – especially given the rapidity of its recent descent, and the overwhelming bearish sentiment against it. It is my intent to use such strength as an opportunity to re-evaluate our eurozone holdings.”
What Schiff fails to realize is that foreign investors want U.S. Treasuries for a damn good reason. Schiff needs to ask them why they want treasuries instead of listening to his fortune-teller predictions. Understand this. No serious investor listens to Schiff, Faber or any of the other media whores.
They are on TV to lure the sheep.
The U.S. dollar is the universal currency. It is linked to the global oil supply and the U.S. remains as the most dominant nation on Earth. As such, U.S. Treasuries remain as the safest investments on Earth.
The U.S. has never defaulted on its obligations. And while I certainly see some big problems for the U.S. going forward, the fact is that the euro has a very short history. This is the first time it has been tested and it is not making an impressive showing.
For Schiff to state that the euro “remains more reliable than the dollar” is preposterous. When the challenges for the U.S. are highlighted, the dollar’s weakness reflects this. But when the globe faces a meltdown, everyone flocks to the dollar as a safe haven for a good reason.
Going forward, we will see continued problems around the globe. In the not so distant future, it is likely that the emphasis of these problems will shift back again to the U.S. and the dollar will reflect this. However, we are looking at a global depression. That means that the dollar will remain as the safe haven, despite the internal issues faced by America.
I predicted the collapse of the euro a few years ago. And I reiterated that back in 2009. In short, the economic differences between member nations will create severe economic disparities.
Furthermore, member nations are struggling with the loss of sovereignty. My prediction was for the euro to be finished sometime around 2020. Thus, for Schiff to state that the euro remains more reliable than the dollar is nonsense.
Finally, Schiff praises the euro, while in the end, he implies that he is concerned. As a result, he plans to reevaluate his euro holdings. Please.
And of course, to close out his piece, Schiff pitches his books, as if everyone does not already know about them. Reputable “strategists” working for brokerage firms don’t plug their books every chance they get, especially when they are provided with daily opportunities to market to millions via the media.
In fact, reputable strategists working for brokerage firms rarely even write books. When they do, you had better believe these books are largely useless and serve only as marketing tools.
It would appear that Schiff is Superman, having written several books in a couple of years, while managing his brokerage firm, submitting daily You Tube videos, making the daily rounds on the radio and TV stations, all while doing investment research.
If should be clear to those with a brain what is going on here. Peter Schiff is a marketer, not a researcher. And his extreme views serve as his sales pitch, which he refuses to change regardless of changing market conditions.
Next, Schiff’s newsletter discusses a couple of oil stocks. So let’s have a look.
Investment Ideas
Oil Patch Moves North
“In light of the inflationary environment being teed up by the Fed’s relentless money printing, we feel commodity prices will continue their upward trend. As a result, we see opportunities in companies involved in petroleum production. In particular, we are focusing on firms working in the Bakken Formation, an expansive oil-producing region of North America.
The Bakken is part of the Williston Basin located in eastern Montana, western parts of North Dakota and South Dakota, and southern Saskatchewan. Identified by geologists in 1953, the field extends approximately 475 miles north-south and 300 miles east-west. Based on recent development of the Bakken field, only Texas, Alaska, and California currently produce more oil than North Dakota. (According to the Energy Information Agency, North Dakota had been ranked 8th among the states just three years ago). In 2008, the USGS (US Geological Survey) estimated the Bakken Formation had 3.0 to 4.3 billion barrels of undiscovered, recoverable oil – a 25-fold increase compared to the agency's 1995 estimate.
A key factor in North Dakota’s rise in oil production has been the advancement of a drilling technique known as ‘horizontal multistage fracturing.’ The Bakken Formation is two miles underground, and its oil is held in a fairly shallow horizontal layer. Extraction requires a two-mile deep conventional (vertical) well that turns 90 degrees for another two miles. Short segments of this horizontal section are then pumped with pressurized water to fracture the surrounding rock, allowing access to additional oil that would otherwise be unrecoverable. As a direct result of this technical innovation, North Dakota’s annual crude oil production has doubled since 2000. 
This activity has attracted oil services companies to help drill, fracture, transport, and refine the increasing amounts of oil gushing from the Bakken. Here are two that we like:
Company #1
North Dakota's production of 275,000 barrels per day (bpd) has nearly outpaced the state's refining and transportation capacity. The state's only refinery has a capacity of 58,000 bpd. This company's pipeline, which moves oil east, has recently expanded its capacity significantly. The company is a publicly-listed limited partnership headquartered in Texas, with over 4,000 miles of pipes in its system.
The company's stock price fell dramatically in the latter half of 2008, as fear drove the market heavily into cash. As activity returned to the energy patch, demand for pipelines resumed. The company raised its dividend after reporting solid improvement in net income for the first quarter compared to the same quarter last year.
The company's market capitalization is now almost $6.0 billion, with an attractive distribution.

Company #2

Company #2 provides consulting services and solutions for the process of hydraulic fracturing – a method of breaking through stone to reach oil pockets. It is also the world's largest supplier of an essential component in the fracturing process. As the rock surrounding the wellbore breaks as a result of pressurized water injections, this company's product wedges itself into the newly formed crevices. Without the product, the fractures could close and stop the flow of oil.

This Texas-based company has little debt and sells its oil production improvement and recovery services in North America, Europe, and China. The company reported increased year-over-year revenue and announced that it plans to increase its production capacity by 40% over the next 20 months.

The company's market capitalization is now approximately $1.5 billion, with a promising dividend yield.

Doesn’t this remind you of one of those email newsletters that tries to tempt you to invest so that you can get in on their “secret” investment? 
First, note the statement he makes; it’s a bit worrisome to me and emphasizes the approach taken by brokers…
“In light of the inflationary environment being teed up by the Fed’s relentless money printing, we feel commodity prices will continue their upward trend. As a result, we see opportunities in companies involved in petroleum production.”
As noted, Schiff’s newsletter was sent out on May 18th, in the midst of the collapse in oil prices. While I myself bought some oil stocks a week earlier, oil had not yet entered the collapse stage. And I stated I would be cautious and wait and take a wait-and-see approach.
Finally, for me, buying oil made sense because I bought it below my cost basis a few months ago when I sold it. Thus, to enter new positions now seems quite hasty, especially for stocks that don't pay cash dividends! 
If you are going to buy oil stocks in this market (or any stocks for that matter) you need to make sure you are getting good dividends, ESPECIALLY if you are going to buy-and-hold, which is apparently the approach employed by EuroPacific's brokers (much like the brokers most everywhere else).
If you aren't getting dividends, you need to be making short-term and swing trades. Otherwise, you are best to stay out of this market.
You need to understand that brokerage firms are in the business of always selling you stocks, regardless how much things are going down, as if they think investors have unlimited money and can keep averaging down their position cost basis.
While this is probably a good time to be buying oil, there certainly is no rush.
Investors should take a step back and be patient. Timing is important. Like all other brokers, apparently Schiff disagrees. This is likely to reflect his brokers’ inability to determine securities timing, which certainly isn’t a sin, as this is extremely difficult to do. However, those who have access to my newsletter might have a different opinion about that. 
Next, notice he used the word “inflationary,” while avoiding the use of hyperinflation. This seems a bit odd coming from a man who has preached hyperinflation for several years now. Perhaps Mr. Schiff does not want to get into trouble with FINRA; just a guess.
It’s quite easy to determine which oil stocks Peter (or one of his associates) is mentioning. Just do a Google search for “Bakken oil stocks” and match the parameters. For instance, the first stock he discusses is most likely EOG.
Why would anyone want to buy an oil stock in this environment (secular bear market) which doesn’t pay cash dividends? The ONLY way I would justify this move is if the stock was being actively managed via trading and covered calls in order to reduce risk and capture income. I doubt this is being done by EuroPac brokers. Some of Schiff’s clients can let me know if I’m wrong.
Why do I have doubts that these positions are being actively managed? Because brokers typically buy-and-hold. Very few take the time to actively manage accounts. They focus on sales.
Do you see any mention of topics like relative undervaluation of securities or risk management?  
Next, notice the charts for these stocks. 
What do you see?
Do you see long-term price appreciation? I don’t.
What I see are stocks that have been floundering.
What I can tell you is that based on the lack of price appreciation, these stocks should be paying out nice dividends because they obviously aren’t growing earnings sufficiently to justify higher valuations.
This is a basic rule of investing. I actually discuss this in detail in the Wall Street Investment Bible.
Now, by no means do I want to send the message that Schiff is the most clueless of all media whores. Most of the others that share his extremist one-way views like Marc Faber and others in his circle of doom are more clueless.
As well, those on the other extreme are even more clueless; the traditional Wall Street establishment that denies problems. 
However, it really does not matter because this is not a contest to see who is least clueless among a group of extremists.
All that matters is whether you can invest and manage risk well.
