I listened to the whole thing...a must if you have concerns. The bottom line is the newsletter is cheap...49.00 for a years subscription and there is some very sound advice so far in the investment area. Access to archived newsletters as well....
Things ain’t getting any better and I really don’t want to pin my financial hopes on some of these brokers who golf and sometimes study the markets...
JMHO.

Yes, Porter sells a service, and a damn fine one at that.

He has been remarkably prescient in his calls about GM, Fannie & Freddie, despite the ridicule of the financial bobbleheads.

He can back up his assertions with numbers, as his strengths are in financial analysis.

Not for everyone, but if you like your financial guidance in no BS terms, he’s the go-to guy.

We have one "broker" who golfs all the time.

I found the video on YouTube (assuming that it is the one).

For the first five minutes, all he did was talk about what he's going to talk about.

James Lipton, “Inside the Actors Studio” hosts Porter Stansberry the most bilious gas bag on the information highway.

LOL--I wish I could open a .pdf file on this computer. I'd love to see the District Court's opinion (or the Fourth Circuit's, if it went that far).

"Send me $1000 and you'll quadruple your money with this tip I'll give you." Isn't that one of the oldest cons in the book?

“Joker” (insert picture a la “Batman”).

Golf. Well, he eats ice cream, too.

Sarko called him out a while back. Better download it before they scrub it off the internet, too. Other copies have disappeared, including the one Breitbart linked to.

My wife insisted that we listen to this guy’s video. I was turned off by the name of his weblink: “TheEndOfAmerica13.com”

A title like that smells of fear mongering to me. Gut instinct tells me that no serious person would ever use such a scare title to attract other serious people.

I’ll tell you what. That’s a loooooooong video. I kept wondering when he was going to quit trying to scare me to death, and get around to discussing whatever solutions he offers. Never made it to that point. The thing (blessedly) quit at about the 45 minute mark.

I heard a radio ad yesterday which implored everybody to visit ‘endofamerica21.com’.
Whatever this guy is peddling, he can afford radio ads.
None for me, thanks.

He's made a terrible marketing error, in my opinion. Using a scare title like that makes him look like a scam artist, right out of the gate, in my opinion.

As to the information in his video, I won't say that it's not valid. Problem is, the video is far too long for most people's patience. That alone, made it feel to me as though I was being set up to be taken advantage of. Does it really take a whole hour to get to the point?

I listened to The End of America. Sounds like one of the things Porter Stansberry offers is some version of a “Silver Accumulation Program.” These appeals and investment schemes were popular during the 1980s, when political and economic conditions were similar to those of today.

Guys like Stansberry & Associates target political conservatives with their newsletters and offers. They themselves may be politically conservative — how else do they understand our fears so well?

But if they turn out to be greedy people who employ shady marketing practices to get your money, does it matter what their political views are? No. So don’t focus on the wrong thing, and allow yourself to be diverted from the truth of the investment offer.

Don’t be taken in by the artful copy writing on Porter Stansberry’s website and in his marketing pieces. Stansberry and guys like him have perfected the art of producing carefully written appeals that play on your fear of loss and your desire for “insider information.”

Here’s some advice from the website of the Texas Attorney General: “If you fell for a scam, chances are it was because a skillful salesperson pushed all the right buttons. Here are five ways that smart sales people - and scam artists - can get you to part with your hard-earned money against your better judgment.” https://www.oag.state.tx.us/consumer/five_tricks.shtml

Search the internet and find out what others have learned about the investment schemes Stansberry is offering in The End of America.
Buyer Beware.

I watched his power point yesterday. Do you think that his claims about the U.S. Dollar are valid? I’m so very curious about the one investment we “must’ have.

My guess? Non-hybrid seeds.
