Invest Yourself

The FREE Investment Newsletter That Really Works!

2.19.2017 - Financial Intelligence Report Bookmark

NOTE!!!!
I am Closing the Lifetime Insiders Club offer early. I originally figured I’d leave it open for two weeks and let the folks that might not see our newsletter for a week or so ( travel, etc)  get the deal. But I can’t. For all my current annual and monthly subscribers that hopped on this, I say thanks for trusting in us.  It’s humbling to see so many take advantage of it.  But the response was bigger than I expected, so, I’m not going to run this for “ten days to two weeks”.  No, I’m going to end this offer today. This is the last time you’ll see this offer in the Newsletter.  I don’t believe I will ever run it again.

I will allow any last minute stragglers in until Midnight on Tuesday. I sort of forgot it was a Holiday weekend and many are traveling for an extended weekend. The deal is simple: For just 600 bucks you get the insiders club until I either croak or mentally/physically can’t write it any more. Considering we get 200 per year, after 3 years it’s all gravy to you. If I publish for 20 more years, you win.


The rules are simple. It’s 600 bucks for the Insiders club for what I hope to be 20+ more years. There’s no refunds. You’re rolling the dice that I won’t croak tomorrow, or turn senile in 4 years. In return I’ll do what I’ve been doing for the past 22+ years, trying to help you all make money and keep the money you make.  If you want in on this, here’s the link to follow....


 
Final note on this.  I’ve had a ton of Emails from folks like Ron here...

Bob
I’ve enjoyed getting your free newsletter for over a couple years. I love your perspective on things and you always make me think.  I think I want to take advantage of your offer for the 600 dollar lifetime membership. But how do I know if it is right for me? Please convince me!
Ron

Well Ron, you don’t know and I don’t know. I understand that situation. Forking over 600  bucks for something you haven’t investigated is pretty risky. All I can say is that 5 days a week, 3 times a day I put out updates concerning my views on the market, trades I’m entering, options I might be buying, short term swing trades, longer term “Vegas plays”, etc.  We don’t get them all right, but we get more right than wrong. Sometimes even a blind squirrel finds an acorn and over the years we’ve introduced plays at times that have been, well... spectacular. However I do NOT want your money if I can’t help you.  All I can say is that for 600 bucks, for what could be 20 years of getting this, will you find a trade/investment/options play/401K shift, etc, that pays that 600 dollar bill in profits?  Heck we did that this week in CERN alone. So... yeah.  Thanks for asking.

 
Personal Note>  Today is my anniversary. On a spectacularly beautiful day 34 years ago, a pretty gal with deep blue eyes lost her mind and said “I do” in front of 130 people. While it may have been the worst decision she ever made, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I say that with no apologies. I was blessed with a best friend from God.  I pray for 34 more.
 
 
The Big Lie
 
I’m sure most of you are aware of a very famous quote that goes like this....

“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”

That was the message from Adolph Hitler.  A big lie: is a propaganda technique. The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, about the use of a lie so "colossal" that no one would believe that someone "could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.
 
What I find so interesting is that the Very people claiming that Trump is the next Hitler, are the ones using the “big lie” technique.  Consider the following...
 
His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.
 
Now read that paragraph and use “the left and the Media” as the propaganda, and Trump as the target of the technique and what do you see? You see it’s a perfect fit.  “Never admit to a fault or a wrong”...well have you EVER heard the media come out and say they’re wrong about all their fake news?  “never concede that there could be some good in your enemy”...have you ever heard anyone on the left say anything nice about Trump? Or his wife? Or his kids? Not a peep.
 
“blame him for everything that goes wrong”... He’s been blamed for literally everything. It’s almost kabuki theatre watching the media twist his best intentions into “the worst thing that’s ever happened”.  Then of course “the big lie”. Tell it big, tell it often, and the stupid people will believe it. So what’s the big lie? Actually there’s many of them, but the BIG one is all about the “Russian thing”.
 
All you hear from morning till night out of the press is “how many in your cabinet were contacting Russia?” All you hear is that Russia attacked Ukraine and took Crimea. All you hear is about Russia’s expansionary policy. All you hear is that Putin’s a Killer. All you hear from morning till the moon rises is “Russia bad, US good and Trump is working for the Russians”. 
 
It’s a big lie, and they’re following Hitler’s instructions... They tell it all day long. I try and watch a Trump press conference and every other question is about Russia. So why the Russia attacks? Two reasons. One is that the neocon war hawks that love blowing up our kids like cannon fodder get orgasmic over the idea of a big war.  If you go back and read some of my articles from 2010/2011/2012/ etc what’s one of the most common themes I talked about? I said over and over that they were trying their very best to spark a war with Russia.
 
The other reason is that as the scummy “black hats” in the Intelligence community try and get this Trump guy out of office, they’re using the fake Russia connection to dumb down the masses, so one day they can come out and try and impeach him.  I think most of you people think I’m kidding or making this up when I say that there is a brutal war being raged at the establishment level.  This Trump guy is rocking their boat and they don’t like it at all. He’d already have been assassinated if it wouldn’t be so obvious that they were behind it. So they’ll work for the impeachment angle first.
 
Listen up all you Trump haters. This guy ain’t perfect. This guy also had NO CLUE how deep the deep state truly is and how badly they were going to fight him.  I also don’t know how much “truth” Trump knows about what’s really happened at the highest levels over the last 15 years.  What I do know is that he’s the first President I ever saw that shouts down the media. Calls them “very fake” news and shuts down CNN reporters. He’s the first President I’ve ever seen that went straight to work on day one doing the things he said he’d do.  
 
But then again, he did join in the “Really big lie” about Russia and Crimea and yeah that bothers me. Either he figured he had to say that to look tough, or he’s been badly misled. He also hasn’t pulled off NATO from Russia’s doorstep, nor removed a single soldier from Aghanistan.  Again, I’m hopeful he’s playing that game of being ‘tough”  for a while just so that he can squash out some of the over the top “Russian Agent” accusations.
 
 
Many have asked me about him staffing his cabinet with Goldman slugs. Yeah, I get it, the optics stink out loud. But here’s the thing. Scumbags don’t care where they make their millions. So they were perfectly happy making trillions letting banks sell toxic mortgages and blowing up people’s lives, they’ll also be perfectly happy making trillions rebuilding things. And, if indeed we face the possibility of a major “reset” as I suspect we’re going to get one day, you have no choice but to keep the bankers on your employee roles. Like em or hate em, There’s ALWAYS going to be institution banks and they’re always going to the ones that implement restructuring, etc.  So while I detest some of them at a personal level... I can accept that they’re somewhat necessary. They know were ALL the skeletons lay, and what to do about them.
 
This is a very tense time. I’m not creating drama here folks, it’s just reality. When Trump won the election, what did I say in the very next letter? “This isn’t over by a long shot folks. They’re going to continue to pound him, block him, try and impeach him and disgrace him”.   What’s happened since? The media’s beating him daily, 50+ retailers dropped his and Ivanka’s product lines, the black hats at the intelligence agencies are trying to make people believe he’s a freaking Russian spy for God’s sake. No this isn’t over, and frankly I hope he can take the heat. He’s the only chance we have.

PS... here’s a short clip that I think is very worth watching


 
 
The Market...

Ha, they pulled it off!  I told my folks that I thought the market would finally end slightly red on Friday. But no, they did their magic late day levitation one more time. Starting a little after 2 pm, when the DOW was still off 60 points and the S&P was down 4, they scratched and clawed and wouldn’t you know that when the final bell rang, they eeked out a 4 point gain on the DOW and the S&P.

But it was a horse race! At 3:59 the DOW was still red by about 12 points and “boom” up it shot to pull off the win. I guess the desire to look wonderful for all the weekend talk shows over came the desire to take profits.
 
So, what’s going on? Is everything really so great that we are on track to just plow higher and higher? Well here’s the problem folks and it is something we truly struggle with. The market is RIGGED to go up. Do you know why it’s rigged to go higher? Because you can’t taper a ponzi. Our entire financial economy is based on ever expanding debt. They use stocks as collateral to create that debt. If stocks go down substantially... it isn’t just mom and pop’s 401K that falls. Wall Street couldn’t give a rat’s butt about mom and pop.  What they care about is the multi billions they’ve pledged as collateral, on loans they’ve sunk into other risk assets.  If this market of ours goes down substantially... we’ve got a mini Armageddon on our hands.
 
This is not hype or fantasy. This is the real world. They need stocks rising and they don’t much care how they do it. Central bank buying, corporate buy backs, QE programs you name it. CAT posts its FIFTIETH straight quarter of declining sales?  CAT ends the day 56 cents higher. That make sense to you? Of course not. But it is what happened, and that’s what we’re up against. If you aren’t in the market as they walk it ever higher, you’re missing out on the gains. But when you’re in it... you feel inside that “one day something bad is going to happen”.  Yes, it is. We just don’t know when.
 
They eeked out a mixed close on Thursday, with the DOW up about 8 and the S&P down 2. Then Friday they had to pull the late day dash, to keep the illusion alive going green at the close by 4 points. (DOW) Does that sound like strength to you?  No it doesn’t.

Friday was options expiration day and I had a hunch they might hold us up. I didn’t think they’d pull off the green close however. But they did and we wonder what next week brings? We’re way overdue for a corrective pause or pull down and they might get it.  
 
This market is beyond priced for perfection. Everyone knows that, but as I said, because they desperately need stocks to remain at least “stable” so the counterparties don’t collapse, they’re willing to hold their nose and keep nibbling. That’s what we’re doing also. We’re not making the big bets right now, we’re hitting for singles until some of the froth blows off the top of this.  Play safe out there friends.
