"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.”

"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

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.

Obama Seizes Another Opportunity to Distract from the Most Important Issues

Hopefully by now you are familiar with all of the campaign promises Obama made prior to winning the 2008 presidential election.

Unfortunately, he has broken virtually every single one of his promises. 

After only a few months in office, it was clear to me that Obama had surpassed Bush's disastrous performance which took him 8 years to establish. This is something I thought would be impossible to achieve over my life time.

Here are just a few of Obama's broken promises:

(1) Immediate removal of troops from Iraq

(2) Restructure free trade policy

(3) Provide universal healthcare (this was a lie from the beginning since his plan never included universal healthcare)

(4) Those responsible for the financial crisis would be held accountable

(5) No signing statements

(6) Wall Street reform

The list goes on. 

Not only did Obama not withdrawal troops immediately, or even months later, he sent more. As part of the plan to fool the American sheeple, the global elites awarded Obama with a Nobel Peace Prize shortly after he gave the order to bomb a civilian region, killing hundreds. This is beyond a disgrace.

We have a fascist government in America, worse than Nazi Germany. And the clueless masses in America continue to be brainwashed by the media.  STOP WATCHING, LISTENING, and READING anything the media monopoly puts out. They are lying like Hell. They are controlling your minds.

Obama has been instructed by his puppet masters to not even touch free trade, as it continues to enslave workers in America and foreign nations with low wages, little or no benefits, all in order to boost corporate profits. The latest reports of suicides in electronics plants in China provides a glimpse of the inhumane working conditions facilitated by free trade.

All throughout the collapse of the world economy, Obama has refused to go after the perpetrators of the biggest fraud in world history. As a way to buy time so that financial bigwigs can come up with a bogus plan for Wall Street reform, Obama directed his attention to healthcare, as ordered by his puppet masters.

Obama turned healthcare reform into health insurance reform without scrutiny from America's dumbed down population. Even more shocking, he completely failed to even reform the health insurance industry by agreeing to pull out of plans to provide a government option, so as to enable the health insurance mafia to continue to screw Americans.

Of course, Obama was not even involved in the healthcare bill. He let his "trusted" advisers/puppet masters negotiate closed-door scams with big payouts. 

Today, America is set to have a worse healthcare system than before. America's healthcare system is a complete embarrassment on many fronts. Yet, the media monopoly continues (along with most in Washington) to insist that America has the best healthcare system in the world. If you believe that, you are naive.

Why in the Hell would you ever believe anything claimed by a mafia? They are here to screw you, and they're doing a damn good job of it, but only because the American sheeple allow it. This demonstrates the power of the media to control people's mind. It's sickening to me.

You should find it very odd that there has been no discussion of the healthcare reform act since its passage, despite the fact that it represents one of the largest and most influential laws passed in decades.

After buying time, much like the situation with healthcare reform, Obama has sat on the sidelines with Wall Street reform, opting to let the bought off Washington criminals and financial lobbyists negotiate what will ultimately do nothing to reform Wall Street and prevent another series of fraud.

Rather than limit or even remove the powers of the criminal Federal Reserve System, Washington has convinced America's sheeple that the Federal Reserve needs more power to regulate not only the U.S. financial system, but the global financial system. Other than a few Congressmen, no one in Washington has acknowledged that the Federal Reserve was the single most responsible for the global collapse.

I cannot believe what I am seeing. How can people be so gullible and spineless?

America would do well to have Europeans show them how to go about protesting.

Recently, Obama was directed by his puppet masters to send orders to the SEC to investigate Goldman Sachs. This has led to a $1 billion lawsuit.  The Department of Justice has threatened to open a criminal investigation merely as a way to get Goldman to settle.

And the American sheeple have been fooled by this political tactic. You see, if Washington conducted a full investigation of Goldman Sachs and other major banks, I can guarantee you that the fines would be in the hundreds of billions, with thousands of criminal indictments. So for Goldman, a $1 billion fine is nothing.

Don't be fooled by Blankfein's reaction. This is all theatrics. Of course he does not want to concede $1 billion. Like the other Wall Street criminals, he wants to hold onto every penny he has stolen from people.  But in the end, Blankfein realizes $1 billion is a very small price to pay for committing such a huge level of fraud that it caused the world economy to collapse, while profiting from thousands of illegal and well-hidden criminal activities.

The investigation against Goldman has been designed by Obama's puppet masters as a manner by which to help restore his approval rating. Most Americans are so naive that they are fooled by these tactics.

Today, Obama has continued to muster political points by distracting once again from his failures. He is actually criticizing British Petroleum's common stock dividend. And reports from the White House have called for the dividend to be cut or eliminated.

Can you believe this?  

Furthermore, the Department of Justice is investigating BP for criminal activities that may have led to the oil spill.

Are you kidding me?

Moreover, Washington is now criticizing money used by BP for a PR campaign designed to respond to the oil spill.

Is that such a bad thing? 

After all, given how much the media has hammered BP over the past month using spin and deceit, what is wrong with BP taking more control of their PR by producing commercials to explain their commitment and understanding of the urgency of the spill?

Certainly, Hayward's public comments were stunning and upsetting. It's shocking to see how a CEO of such a large corporation could be so unprepared and insensitive in his statements.

In my opinion, Hayward should be forced to resign. But right now, BP should be able to focus on doing all it can to stop the leak and clean up the water and beaches. Hayward's judgment day should come later.

Did Washington criticize Citigroup or AIG and other financial institutions when they spent taxpayer funds to fuel a PR campaign?

Of course not.

Do you see the hypocrisy here? 

Do you see what's going on here?

Obama is trying to make up for his nice vacation taken during the midst of the oil spill crisis. He is also trying to make up for his disastrous healthcare and Wall Street reform.

Let me ask you a question. Back in 2008, when the financial system was collapsing, did Bush insist that the banks cut or eliminate their common stock dividend?  

Of course not. 

After TARP was passed, jettisoning billions of dollars to the same banks that caused this global meltdown, did Obama insist that banks eliminate their dividend? 

Of course not.

Did Obama initiate criminal investigations into the financial industry?  

Of course not.

All that was done was to fool Americans by going after small players.

Every politician is all over BP only for their own interests. It enables them to distract from something they dare not address; investigations of the criminal syndicate that caused a global depression.

As I have said in the past, it doesn't matter whether you have Clinton, Bush, Obama, or anyone else in office. The results will always be the same because all U.S. presidents are puppets. Any presidential candidate who refuses to be a puppet is shut out of the election process, often early on, as was the case with Dennis Kucinich.

I have said this for two years now and I will say it again. Every single executive from the major banks, mortgage companies and credit rating agencies should have been immediately sent to prison for securities fraud. Thereafter, investigations should determine others who were responsible. In total I would estimate 10,000 people should be in prison for this fraud, not including homeowners, appraisers, and small mortgage companies.

I hope you understand how you are being fooled. Remember, the BP oil spill is relatively new. Meanwhile, criminal investigations have already been launched. Obama needs to stop putting his own interests in front of those of the people on the Gulf coast. 

By investigating BP while it is trying desperately to contain the spill, this is adding pressure to the company and possible hampering their abilities to commit 100% of their effort to stopping the oil spill. BP can be investigated after they have stopped the leak and cleaned up the mess. But Americans should protest in mass if a REAL investigation into the financial crisis fraud is not commenced. To date, there have been no real investigations launched.

After two years, why are the banking executives still walking the streets??  In fact, they are wealthier today than even before the collapse!!!

Do not forget this.
