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

- Politics, Aristotle, 350 B.C.

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

- Goldwin Smith, The Jewish Question, October 1881

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

- President Woodrow Wilson 1916

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

- David Rockefeller, Baden-Baden, Germany 1991

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

- Henry Ford 

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

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

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

- The National Educator, K.M. Heaton

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

- Maurice Samuels, You Gentiles, 1924

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

- David Rockefeller 

“Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government.”

- Dr. Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference, Evians, France, 1991

At every opportunity Jewish shills try to mask the Jewish mafia by spreading disinfo and distractions such as "the Jesuits are behind the New World Order." Of course this is comical.

I'm going to reveal something I've known for many years. The Catholic church has been powerless for several decades. This is a fact. The final blow to the Catholic church occurred when molestation lawsuits began to surface about three decades ago. The church has been in severe financial trouble since then. This is in fact how the Jewish mafia seized the final arm of control over the church, using its banks to finance the enormous financial awards for thousands of cases of sexual deviancy from Catholic priests. 

But let's not forget that the world was a much different place when the Catholic church actually had real power. Back then there were no banks or mass media. Remember that the Catholic church was against Usury. But because the Catholic church was powerful prior to the emergence of banks and mass media, it is a well-known fact that the church had already been infiltrated by Jews.  They are referred to as marano Jews.  

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.

Stathis Nails the Gold & Silver Selloff AGAIN - Jul - Sep 2014

No one knows where gold, silver, the stock market or anything else is headed for sure.
But one thing level-headed people know for certain...
The worst people to seek for guidance and forecasts on gold, silver, stocks, bonds, real estate or any other asset are from those who sell them or get paid to promote them.
With the exception of the precious metals industry, the public marketplaces, exchanges or other venues that enable individuals to buy and sell most asset classes like publicly traded securities (stocks and bonds) and real estate are regulated. That means there is some level of accountability that exists because regulators police the system. If a stock broker or real estate agent screws you, there are many avenues available to the victim to seek justice.
This situation does not exist in the dark and sleazy world of precious metals dealers. Although the CFTC officially regulates the precious metals industry, it really only regulates the precious metals securities.
There is virtually no regulation for dealers of physical precious metals. They can charge whatever they want and they can do and say a lot of things that would causes financial advisers to lose their license.
Due to the lack of regulation, this industry attracts a lot of scum bags. This is why you often see pawn shops buying and selling them (hint, hint).
Remember that it's the precious metals dealers and paid promoters who keep telling you to "buy, buy, buy." They have no exit strategy. They are salesmen.

These are the guys who are selling greed, fear, doom and gloom. 
They keep telling you the end is near for the dollar, and some even claim all currencies are finished! 
They are liars, idiots and con men.
They want you to panic and get scared because you will not question the huge commissions they charge if you are getting something that will be your savior. 
Sorry, but gold is not a savior. Gold is used by crooks to launder money. That's about the extent of its useful purposes!  
What I'm trying to tell you is very simple.
You need to stay away from all precious metals dealers, precious metals websites, precious metals promoters, Wall Street analysts, CNBC, Bloomberg and every other media outlet that promotes and makes money from pumping the stock and precious metals markets.
Only a fool would go to a salesman or paid promoter for information pertaining to the items the salesman makes money from.
Another thing I am certain of as well. The individual best positioned to understand what the future holds is he who has accurately predicted the past.
We aren't talking about crystal ball forecasting here. I'm talking about real research; published, with consistently accurate results. I'm talking about detailed research conducted by an accomplished and experienced investment strategist.
I'm talking about a man who covers more investment sectors, asset classes and forecasting categories more accurately than anyone I have ever seen. I am talking about Mike Stathis.
Mike Stathis holds the leading investment forecasting track record since 2006. No one has furnished any evidence to begin to challenge that claim.
We have even issued a $100,000 prize to the first person who can prove that there is another person who can match Mike's track record. 
After 4 years of waiting for someone to submit a challenge to try and collect this reward, not a single entry has been made! 
The reason for this is due to the fact that Mike Stathis holds the leading investment forecasting track record in the world since 2006. The evidence is undeniable.
A portion of Mike Stathis' Track Record can be examined here, herehere and here.
Despite Mike's remarkable track record, he continues to be banned by the criminal media establishment. Instead, the media elects to air con men, hacks and idiots, the vast majority of which are Jewish.
The favoritism for Jews by Jewish-run businesses is most easily seen in the media, Hollywood and the financial industry. This illegal behavior is responsible for massive amounts of theft from the average American household.
But the criminality committed by the Jewish Mafia is much, much larger and spans virtually every segment of white collar crime. We see similar levels of criminal control by the Jewish Mafia in other Western nations as well.
When you speak out against the widespread criminality and discrimination committed by the Jewish Mafia, most Jews and those who have been brainwashed by Jewish brainwashing (via Hollywood and the political establishment which is also run by the Jewish Mafia) call you "Anti-Semitic" as a cover.
In essence, the Jewish Mafia has made it socially acceptable to transform a whistleblower into a bad person though defamation. That is what I call complete mind control.
The Jewish Mafia has developed great expertise devising ways to get people to blame the victims while they get away with wrong doings. I see it every single day.
They are the ones who have made it popular to blame the girl who was raped instead of going after the man who raped her. This is a huge issue which we will continue to expose in the near future.
Most people will not discuss these issues because they have been paralyzed with fear. In today's modern world you cannot mention the Jewish Mafia or anything about Jews unless it is complimentary.
And if you state facts that demonstrate the power of the Jewish Mafia, such as the fact that the Jewish Mafia controls the Western media or banking system, you are most often labeled "Anti-Semitic."
It must be nice to have such a cover that enables you to get away with massive fraud over and over, all while vilifying the messenger.
Many Jewish individuals are aware of these issues, although they are not directly involved with the Jewish Mafia. While many derive benefits as a result of being Jewish, many do not. Yet, even those Jews who have suffered at the hands of the Jewish Mafia refuse to say anything about it.
Note that more than 70 percent of our subscribers are Jewish. If Mike Stathis was Anti-Semitic, he could easily refuse to allow Jewish individuals to subscribe to his research. At the same time, if he were concerned about pleasing his subscriber base, he would not bring up the Jewish Mafia. Mike is driven by the truth.
For now, just remember. If you want to have the best chance of knowing what to expect in the future, you need to seek the guidance of those who have no agendas and those who have assembled a consistent track record of accurate forecasts and guidance.
Here, we show once again how Mike Stathis nailed the gold and silver trade.
If you want to know where gold and silver are headed, your best source isn't some shady con men who sell gold or silver.
Your best source is the man who has the leading investment forecasting track record since 2006; the man who began putting his clients in gold stocks in 2001; the man who recommended gold and silver in his 2006 book; the man who warned people they should not buy gold when it was over $1200; the man who warned that gold would hit $2000 then collapse and remain low for many years; the man who warned against buying physical gold and silver due to the industry being run by con men who charge huge fees; the man praised by Kitco's chief precious metals analyst as having documented the precise details of the precious metals manipulation scam being carried out by gold dealers; the man who advised people to only buy gold and silver ETFs in order to trade the volatility, enhance liquidity and boost your total return since fees were miniscule.
Upon review of all of the predictions and forecasts made by everyone out there, ask yourself who was right and who was wrong.
Ever since he began publishing research reports, Mike Stathis has been right about virtually everything he has forecast on the economy, the stock market, commodities, precious metals and much more; that's nearly a decade.
And on rare occassion when he is wrong, he points it out as soon as he realizes his error instead of sticking to it like a fool who stays with a sinking ship. That is what you would expect from a real analyst and investment strategist.
The guys who keep pitching the same lines when they continue to be wrong month after month and year after year are certainly not analysts or strategists. They are snake oil salesmen.
Never go to snake oil salesmen for investment advise or analysis unless you want to kiss your money goodbye. 

From the July 2014 issue of the Intelligent Investor (Part 1)
From the September 2014 issue of the Intelligent Investor (Part 1)
No matter how much we expose charlatans, some people will never get it.
They have been sucked in too deep to be rescued.
They will keep hanging around the wrong people. And they will keep listening to slick con men.
The largest market is that which serves sheep, which is why you see so many televangelists and self-help gurus with millions of followers.
The financial industry and media really aren't much different.  
A portion of Mike Stathis' Track Record can be examined here, herehere and here.
