If so, is it something worth taking the time to check out?
Link Posted: 1/12/2012 6:52:04 AM EDT
No, but I'd like it if someone posted a link so that I could. I'm not expecting a lot of accuracy or truth, but if it is being covered by Fox news, I am sure I am going to keep hearing about it.

Are you talking about the commercial for "the end of America" or some wacko sounding shit? Haven't looked into it.

Fuck that video.

Brief rundown goes something like this.

Bunch of potentially scary stuff.
No real information.
Buy my stuff.
WAIT, WAIT......
Are you sure you don't want to buy my stuff?


I watched it over a year ago, and if you can't figure out what the economy is doing, I can't help you.
Wait, Wait, Maybe I can. Listen to the Quantitative easing series found here, on page 5

From Wiki: (emphasis added)

In the mid-2000s, a dispute arose between Weiss Research and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which centered on whether Weiss Research acted as a publisher or a financial advisor. In its filing, the SEC argued that the actions were those of an adviser, while Weiss Research maintained that it acted strictly as a publisher.[6]

In 2006, Weiss voluntarily settled his dispute with the SEC. The SEC instituted cease-and-desist proceedings against Weiss Research Inc., Martin Weiss and Lawrence Edelson. The proceeding stated, "13. Weiss Research, in promotional materials prepared by Martin Weiss, Edelson, and others, sometimes used selective, outdated, and/or hypothetical examples of specific returns that subscribers might have realized on individual trades had they followed Weiss Research's recommendations, without advising that the overall return was or might not be profitable," and "14. The overall performance of Weiss Research's premium services did not support these profit claims. In fact, during the relevant time period, many subscribers who followed each Weiss Research trading recommendation – as Weiss Research encouraged its subscribers to do – experienced overall returns that were substantially lower than Weiss Research's profit examples and most actually lost money."

Yeah, after actually taking the time to look at the material presented, it just appears that this guy is using a very real scenario to make money through people's fears.

I'll just keep to my normal prepping routines and NOT buy the stuff he's selling.

Seriously though, I am on track 6 of 7 in the series that I did recommend. Basically, George is going over an issue in the international forecaster. That explains Quantitative easing. Good stuff.

People have been profiting from fear since the beginning of time. Feces occurs, things change the sun rises again.

It is not a video.

It is an advertsement.

Infomercial. Have cash handy, buy gold/silver, get out of stocks, and save your money by not buying infomercial crap.

Junk. Macro and micro economics courses at a community college would cost less and be more informative.

This. Buy any quality long term purchases you need right fucking now because massive inflation is on the way. Stock up and learn new stuff. You'll be one of the "one percenters" who is OK.

What about the pre-crisis film

"I.O.U.S.A." Any thoughts?

It is some pretty good stuff...


Have you listened to any others?

This will be worse than Y2K.

It is good information, and 90% of it is common sense to anyone who has considered our situation with rational thought.

that said, the infomercial aspect of it, certainly detracts from the credibility.



For the lazy, I'll condense it: Inflation, it's here and it will get worse. It's a mathematical certainty.
Link Posted: 1/12/2012 3:05:33 PM EDT
Well the fact that when I went to close the window a little pop up appeared asking me if I really wanted to go away from the Weiss Research website tells me a lot. Heck, most porn sites don't even do that anymore.

Never underestimate the power of Oligarchs in keeping the world-wide economic ponzi scheme going.

Didn't they "fix" Europe a few weeks ago by writing down some debt, which should have triggered credit-default swaps but TPTB declared that the write down event was not a credit-default triggering event? It wasn't because they said it wasn't. They played the ole, 'these are not the droids you are looking for' mind-trick on the world.

Does anyone believe any of the numbers that the .Gov puts out regarding unemployment, GDP, durable goods..etc?

Fear always sells. Whether they actually fork out the money for the product, a lot of people still buy the fear.

While this video might be a sales pitch, which certainly isn't a good way to educate people(mostly because people write it off as a sales-pitch) there is truth in this, and the U.S.'s financial situation is WAY more precarious than the white house or the fed will ever tell the american people. The only reason the U.S. has gotten away with it for so long is that the dollar is the international currency of trade, but what happens when that changes? What happens when the international community decides that it is not in their best interest to continue loaning money to country that is deeper in the red every year, and will NEVER be able to pay them back? SHTF people.
Not that that's what I want. I've got young kids and the last thing that I want for them is to receive the america that we're shaping up to give them.
Forget your Zombie Apocalypse, this could actually happen... and I'm not trying to sell you anything. Maybe I'm going to be looked at as a nut-job conspiracy theorist here, but ask a real, honest, unbiased, beholding to none economist (not the gov) and if they are knowledgeable and haven't had their head in the sand for the past decade, you'll probably get a scary story.
Good Day, and good luck.

Just saw the new version of the commercial on Fox, it has changed from something happening in 2011 to something happening in the next few months.

Yeah I was getting a good laugh at it being 2012 and hearing "A very wealthy American is predicting in 2011, we will witness the most important day in America in more than 50 years" lol

I figured it was spam, or some kind of investment scheme.

I tried to watch that.

I listened to some guy babbling for 15 minutes before I said "fuck you". I think he was trying to draw the audience in, but it just pissed me off.

Is this the "Aftershock 2012" video we keep hearing about?
Link Posted: 2/15/2012 8:08:16 PM EDT
If it's the same one I watched the other day, the whole scenerio is dependent on all the other countries dumping the dollar as their reserve. It sounds scary, but I tend to tune out when the alarmist is trying to sell me something. I do believe that a serious economic crisis is becoming more likely, but I'm not smart enough to understand, much less comment on everying he was talking about. The only thing I really got out of it was to buy silver and not gold. That part seemed logical to me
