America's Financial Apocalypse

Politics / Financial Crash Sep 25, 2008 - 11:43 AM GMT

By: Mike_Stathis


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat Can YOU Do as an American?

Wake Up - My advice is to find some people who you trust; those with proven track records, those who are not tied to the television shows. Figure it out. You are only going to be misled by the mainstream media. They will only come clean after it is too late, fooling you into thinking they actually warned you in a timely manner. But as you can see, this is simply not a reflection of reality. That is how the dotcom charade worked and that is how this one if playing out. It's game that is played. Stop being played and become a player.

Get Busy

In addition, you should spend more time on the Internet searching for the truth and turn the television off. But don't believe everything you read online because propaganda is spread all throughout the World Wide Web. Be very careful to check affiliations of all websites and other publications. Many of them are in some way connected to networks like CNBC and others. Remember, you are seeking resources online to distance yourself from the mainstream bull so it won't help if you are reading material from sources that have ties to these networks.

Verify everything as if your life depended on it because at some point it just might. And don't use the excuse that you don't have the time because if you continue to rely on television and radio for the truth, you will continue to get taken. The one thing we can feel fortunate about is that we still have the Freedom of Information Act which discloses many things other nations hide in secrecy. Take advantage of it while you still can.

Now, there are some radio shows you can count on, but you can forget television. Which radio shows? At the very least, you can trust the ones that interview me (at least when I am being interviewed) because I deliver nothing but the truth and my best insights. I have absolutely no agendas whatsoever except fighting the crooks and helping you. An informed America is the only path to real change. You can email me to be put on my media appearance email list.

Get Mad

Have you wondered why heads haven't rolled? Call your congressmen and demand action. Demand the bums responsible for this catastrophe be locked up. Vote out the entire Congress and grill McCain and Obama. Ask them the tough questions and demand detailed answers. Ask them who is going to jail for this mess. Ask them why Halliburton continues to get billions in government contracts. Ask them why Franklin Raines is not in prison. Ask them why the other bank and Wall Street CEOs are not in prison. These were the captains of this apocalypse. After all, the captains are supposed to go down with the ship; not fly away on a Bernanke's helicopter with millions as the ship sinks with taxpayers and shareholders aboard. A mere resignation is NOT SUFFICIENT. Reducing or even eliminating their bonuses is NOT SUFFICIENT. The people in charge MUST be sent to prison. And they must be stripped of all assets so they cannot hire a legal team that will allow them to escape justice. Their assets should be put into the taxpayer bailout fund – the fund made necessary due to their irresponsibility, greed and incompetence.

You need to become ashamed of America so you will become upset enough to demand real change. Remaining proud of this country will lead to complacency. Anyone who remains proud to be an American is either naïve, has been brainwashed or is part of Washington or corporate America 's syndicate of crooks. Americans need to get raging mad. Stand and yell, “I'm not going to take it anymore! I'm not going to take this fraud and abusive by Washington ! I'm sick of it” tell your friends too. Call your congressmen and tell them you aren't going to take it anymore. Your goal should be to make your voice heard so you can help drive the changes needed to become proud of America again.

Take Action

Call or email your local television stations and the major networks. Call into the radio syndicated propaganda hosts and tell them you are sick of it. Tell them you see what they are doing now – *****ing and moaning and placing blame so they come across as heroes. This could be furthest from the truth. Ask them why they didn't warn you before. Tell them you know why; they were protecting their political and financial interests. Tell them they blew it just as much as Washington and Wall Street and you won't forgive or forget. Tell them to shove all of their BS back up their ***. Do your part as I have. Together, if everyone does their part we can take back our nation from the crooks and liars and restore America 's greatness. We the people are America . America is not Washington or corporate America or the wealthy elite. Working class Americans made this nation great. And it will be working class Americans that restore the greatness sabotaged by these greedy crooks.

For those of you who have concluded that the needed changes won't take place, you might very well be right. If that is your view, you might be better off moving to Asia, Latin America or Europe because America 's future is finished for at least many decades unless radical change takes place. In this new America , unless you are wealthy your children won't stand a chance to live the American Dream.

Even I never would have predicted things to turn out this bad, this soon. And everyone was calling me a doom and gloomer and a nut two years ago when I predicted the collapse of Fannie, Freddie, the banks housing prices to decline by 30%, and the stock market to collapse. Yet despite my track record, I continue to be censored by the media. Ask them why they continue to censor me. Is it because they cannot drive ad revenues based on what I say since Wall Street and corporate America will become upset after being exposed? Is it because Washington would be upset? Maybe it's because I'm not a “financial celebrity.” All it would take to make me into a “financial celebrity” would be one unedited interview on a major network, because you can bet it would be memorable for those who watched.

What to Expect from Me

I advise you to read all of my articles. Study them if you must. Read my books if you want to see what the future holds and what to do about it. Once you do, you will have a better understanding of America 's realities than all of Washington . Just remember it was me who first alerted you of these issues. And the media hams and “experts” will mirror my viewpoints only after it is too late, as they try to restore credibility. The media has banned me because I provide real guidance and speak the truth. If you want media coverage you have to play the game. And that game involves misleading you. And those “experts” who make regular appearances on television are misleading you in some way – whether through denial, lies or by sugarcoating the realities. They do this because it's what's required by the media in order to be a guest. They are part of the game. Please watch the video below. Bookmark it and watch it once a week to remind you of the truth about the Washington and the media. It will help you fight your addiction to trash TV.

In the near future, I am going to continue to give you the truth and provide valuable investment guidance. I trust those who have been following my guidance have done well or at least have minimized losses. I wish I could do more to help. For those who have not yet read “ America 's Financial Apocalypse” I highly recommend you read it ASAP because it goes far beyond the real estate and banking collapse. Unlike any other book in the world, it discusses what happens after this mess subsides and explains why America 's pain will continue for many years. I will also be exposing the tricks of the media, Wall Street and Washington so you will know who is fooling you, why, and how they do it. Stay tuned because I have much more to expose. But my time is limited so please be patient.

An Offer from Me

I've had several requests for a newsletter. I wrote what I felt was a really great newsletter a few years ago. It was geared for investment professionals so you can imagine it wasn't the typical newsletter. Regrettably, I simply lack the time in my schedule to bring this newsletter back. However, I am prepared to offer a service to those who have an interest. It will be a teleconference held once each week, for 1 to 2 hours. I will cover things most important to investors, from investment guidance, stock analysis, market forecasting, real estate, foreign markets, and investment tricks and tips. However, I will not provide individualized investment advice. If you are interested email me for more details including the subscription fee, .
