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

- Politics, Aristotle, 350 B.C.

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

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

- President Woodrow Wilson 1916

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

“Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. 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
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.

SEC Shame

Many of you who have followed me and read my most recent books (The Wall Street Investment Bible/2009 and America’s Financial Apocalypse/2006 & 2007) know that I feel the SEC is beyond useless. In my opinion, the agency works for Wall Street.

As a financial professional and former direct employee working for Wall Street, I saw how they operate. They pick on the little guys; the brokers who often commit minor violations that affect very few, while turning their heads away from the biggest criminal activities affecting most if not all investors. In this manner, the SEC creates the impression that they are doing their job and that they are competent.
This could not be further from the truth. In the best of situations, SEC officials only act once outsiders deliver evidence of fraud, as was the case of thousands of corporate scandals, including the back-dated options mess, after hours trading by mutual funds, and many others. In the worst of cases, they allow massive fraud to continue despite several years of warnings from outside experts, as was the case with Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme.
But the shame at the SEC continues to mount. Last year, the SEC Inspector General issued a report that found SEC employees watching porn, trading stocks and other alarming activities while at work. This is just one of the reasons why the SEC rarely catches the really big cases of securities fraud.
Right around the same time last year, the SEC charged Mark Cuban with insider trading.
Cuban claimed that these allegations served as a means of retaliation due to his criticisms of the SEC. While I am certainly no fan of Cuban, I would tend to agree with his claims. Cuban reacted in his predictable manner, lashing out at the SEC, and claiming they were the ones guilty of insider trading.
But was this just another example of Cuban's typical theatrics, or was he on to something? Despite any differences in opinion I may have with Cuban on other matters, and despite what I may think of the man, based on what I have seen, we share similar opinions regarding the SEC. And based upon my knowledge of how the SEC operates, I would have to give Cuban the benefit of the doubt regarding SEC allegations of insider trading.
Ironically, just a few days ago, the Inspector General issued another report detailing allegations of insider trading by two SEC attorneys. 
Regardless of the outcome of Cuban's case with the SEC, it looks as if he has been vindicated in voicing his valid claims of hypocrisy of this agency. Either way, Cuban wins.
For several years now, I myself have made many calls the SEC officials to voice my concerns and raise criticisms about the incompetence and negligence of the agency. I have also made numerous complaints regarding violation of securities laws. Yet, nothing has been done. Despite these discouraging results, I continue my efforts to this day. I would say that many attorneys know me by name.
I even addressed the problems at the SEC briefly in my 2006 book “America’s Financial Apocalypse.”
“And of course we cannot forget the SEC, which focuses most of its efforts on small-time crimes as a way to create the perception that it’s policing the securities markets.  Widespread fraud continues at the highest levels on Wall Street and corporate America on a daily basis. In almost every major case of Wall Street and corporate fraud, the SEC has acted only as a reactive investigator after someone else discovered the deceit. This has been true in the accounting scandals with Enron and WorldCom, hundreds of other accounting scandals, stock options backdating, mutual fund and market maker trading fraud, and virtually all other scandals that affect millions of shareholders. 
Rather than focusing on the major crimes, such as illegal activities of market makers, fund managers and traders, floor traders, Wall Street firms, and corporate insiders, the SEC operates with the mentality of ‘You might be doing something wrong but don’t let us know about it or we will investigate.’
The SEC should be constantly probing head figures that influence the capital markets because they’ve been getting away with criminal activities for decades. The passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act has had only a minor impact, with much more bark than bite. The fact is that things haven’t changed and they probably never will. It’s still business as usual on Wall Street. As with everything else in America, big money makes and breaks the rules.”
I continue:
“Because companies know better than anyone what their short-term fate will be, they are truly the ultimate insiders. Corporate treasury departments can time the purchase and sale of their stock as long as they abide by certain minimal restrictions mandated by the SEC. Hence, unknowingly, shareholders lose when companies purchase treasury stock.  Yet, the SEC has allowed this practice ever since inception.
As well, there are very few restrictions for insider purchases of company stock. Don’t you think CEOs and CFOs know their company’s business prospects over the next few years? Of course they do. But the holding period for stock options execution is remarkably short. This legalized insider activity by has accounted for the bilking of billions of dollars from investors. Yet, in most cases, the timely liquidation of stock options is transacted legally, although representing an unfair advantage and what I consider legalized insider trading.”
Finally, in October 2008, I submitted a (not yet publicly released) formal complaint to the SEC regarding insider trading (the most blatant case I have seen in my career) and illegal shorting of Washington Mutual by certain large banks and hedge funds via the prime brokerage units of these banks. At the end of this report, I made my criticisms of the SEC clear.
Just a couple of months later, Madoff’s Ponzi scheme was exposed, but of course not by the SEC. I present my closing statement to the SEC from this report.
Recommended Directives for the SEC
“I will be submitting a proposal to the next presidential administration and other agencies regarding my recommendations for needed changes to the SEC. Among these changes, briefly:
  • Whistle blower laws that apply to employees of corporations should be included and fully encouraged by everyone in the financial industry. All suspected illegal activities or investigative studies submitted by financial professionals should qualify for blanket protection from retaliation. The SEC should provide measures which encourage whistle-blowing for those who see fraudulent activities. And a monetary award should be provided for successfully changed cases. This is will serve as a very helpful force towards the SEC’s mission of enforcement of all securities laws.
  • Future SEC Chairmen need to be enforcement officials rather than politicians. They must be detached from the White House and given the leverage to act on parties thought to represent the most damaging levels of fraud. This means they should be proactively monitoring all market makers and floor traders on a daily basis, rather than waiting for ten years before an outside party discovers foul play. This is something expected by the American people and it is mandated by interpretation of the Securities and Exchange Laws of 1933, 1934 and others since then.  
  • It is obvious that the SEC has been intentionally structured to keep its key staff buried in paperwork and bureaucracy, preventing them from serving as an investigative and enforcement arm of the securities industry. Throughout the years speaking with numerous staff members, they have informed me that they feel powerless to take a more proactive role. In many cases, they have also expressed frustration after having many needed reforms being pushed into a closet, never to be seen again. It is obvious to me that Chairman Cox knows well what is going on and while he may not be responsible for the designed incompetence of the agency, if he were an honorable man he would have resigned shortly after realizing the hypocrisy that know characterizes the SEC.
  • As a partial solution to overcome the bureaucratic barriers that hinder the efforts of the staff, the SEC should create a fund dedicated to compensating industry experts who submit credible issues of fraud. As well, these experts should be contracted for hire on certain cases as needed by the SEC. Each submission should be held accountable to an agency outside of the SEC such as the Department of Justice to ensure that it receives the proper consideration. I continue to be shocked at the lack of understanding SEC attorneys have of the illegal activities I observe in the capital markets. Most likely, they are being micromanaged so they are unable to see anything other than the task that is laid out before them. 
  • Ultimately the SEC has failed to protect investors from massive fraud that has been a daily occurrence for over a decade now. Thus, a radical restructuring is necessary. Ultimately, the SEC should be overseen by an organization that is disconnected from Washington politics to ensure those in charge are held to the highest standards, remain committed to serve the original intended missions of the SEC, and are held accountable for their actions or lack thereof. Obviously, such a proposal would be viewed by SEC officials as a threat to their authoritative responsibilities. As a result, I would not expect this recommendation to receive any level of serious consideration. Asking an agency to create an independent party to oversee its actions and hold its officials accountable is not something one can expect in America. Therefore, I will be forwarding the details of this and all other recommendations to other government agencies, watch dog groups, etc. 
  • The SEC must hold corporate executives and others fully accountable for fraud, neglect of duties, and other practices. Already, thousands of individuals escaped criminal and even civil prosecution from the events surrounding the dotcom collapse just a few years ago. It appears as if the same thing is going to happen with the current real-estate/banking collapse. This is a complete farce. Today, the SEC resembles the FDA, both serving the interests of the industries they are supposed to police.
  • Media firms that engage in a certain amount of financial news and commentary should be regulated by SEC regulations in a manner similar to broker-dealers since they are receiving indirect payments (via ad revenues and favors) from those who deal in securities (analysts, fund managers, etc.) as well as those who are also directly involved in the securities markets (corporations via ad revenues – i.e. interviews with CEOs, etc.). 
  • The mutual fund industry is still largely unregulated. I can cite numerous situations whereby investors are exposed to illegal sales and marketing practices, excessive fees are charged but customers are not aware of them, etc. The SEC must begin to regulate mutual fund companies on a level that is meaningful. These regulatory activities should be focused on marketing and advertisements. I can list numerous examples of what I would consider unfair business practices at best and illegal activities at worst by the mutual industry. I shall save this for a separate report to be composed at a later date. 
  • The SEC should regulate all radio, television and print advertisements by mutual funds, Wall Street firms, online brokers, insurance companies offering investment products. The SEC must understand and acknowledge the media is serving as a quasi-broker/dealer is receiving advertisement revenues in exchange for providing a venue for investment analysis and advice. The associations are clear. And I have spoken to several SEC attorneys who agree fully with my position. The most blatant examples are to be found on CNBC and Fox Business Network. 
  • These changes will obvious require a considerable source of new funding. The staff will need to increase by at least 3-fold. The money will come from fees assessed to investment firms.
  • A new division should be created that focuses only on investigations of politicians, who use their power to influence the success of publicly traded corporations for which they are shareholders. A recent example of such an arrangement is that between House Majority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, D-CA and T. Boone Pickens. Upon pushing his wind power plan throughout Washington, Mr. Pelosi was somehow able to purchase $100,000 of Mr. Picken’s natural gas IPO company CLNE. This is just one of many episodes of clear conflict of interest. In my opinion, this goes well beyond insider trading.
  • The arbitration process needs to be revised. The SEC needs to work with the NASD (FINRA) and each exchange to ensure that the process is fair. I am prepared to go into detail regarding the problems and solutions for arbitration at a later date.
The class-action securities litigation process is nothing short of a ludicrous. It has been designed only to favor the attorneys. Although I have been able to participate in numerous class-action awards, I have not bothered to do so because the amount of time needed to fill out the paperwork and confirm the dates of purchase etc. is nowhere near worth the amount of money I would receive. 
‘The mission of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is to protect investors, maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitate capital formation.’
It is clear that the SEC has continued to fail at its mission for decades. It is time for the SEC to be revamped. Americans have been exploited and defrauded for too long. Let’s be honest. The SEC has become a complete joke. And I for one will not tolerate it anymore. And I know I speak for all taxpayers. Together, we fund the SEC. We fund your paychecks. You are public servants to taxpayers, not the crooks you protect.  This is not a message to the staff so much as it is to the executives of the SEC. I have always had very favorable encounters with every staff member from the SEC, from the receptionists to the attorneys. But their efforts are limited by the decision-makers.”
Since that time, I have heard nothing of the allegations I made. I did receive a follow-up phone call from two SEC attorneys to discuss the complaint, but nothing else beyond that. I do not expect the allegations I made to ever be exposed. In fact, SEC officials refused to provide me with critical data that would prove the allegations I made in my report.
The SEC has a perfect system in place whereby they ultimately determine what cases to pursue. And there is no accountability from outside parties. So they can sweep anything under the rug and investors will not know the difference.
Despite my initial commitment to forward a more detailed report regarding changes needed at the SEC to the Obama Administration, I have since decided against this as I feel it would a further waste of my time. What was the deciding factor? Obama’s appointment of Mary Shapiro as the new SEC Chairman. Shapiro has along history of working as a top official in the securities regulatory arena, so she knows how the game is played. In other words, you should expect the same status quo from the SEC.  
NOTE: I continue to face widespread censorship for the cold hard truth I speak, as I see it. My intention is to wake the people up so they will realize just how useless and deceitful the mainstream media is.  I ask that you do your part to help with this mission by emailing my articles to your friends and adding them to the various online syndication options provided at the top right-hand side of each article. Together, we can make a difference.
