Have you heard of Porter Stansberry or his company Stansberry and Associates? Stansberry is noted for giving financial information designed to beat a government reputed to be corrupt.
The thing is Stansberry has a bad reputation. He was convicted for fraud after a SEC investigation that spelled out that Stansberry provided false information in an investment newsletter that he sold at a thousand bucks a periodical. It didn’t help Stansberry that his so-called inside tipster denied providing info for the newsletter.
On the other hand Stansberry claims his conviction/judgment (btw $1.5 million) is government persecution that trampled his free speech rights under the First Amendment. I am guessing those deemed victims did not turn down the restitution of the Court judgment though.
So why am I providing this mini-profile on (Frank) Porter Stansberry? The reason is I have gone to gone to a few of the stansberryresearch.com website ads offering a long report via video and text providing a credible Conspiracy Theory then offering a report or a subscription for you to use the information to formulate a financial strategy pertaining to the issue of the ad.
If you are a Conservative and aware of UN conspiracies surrounding Agenda 21 and the Eco-Marxism of Climate Change proponents, then you are a person who will be caught on the Stansberry hook to be reeled in. Basically Stansberry financial scenarios are alluding to economic collapse and government intrusion.
I found an ad on a pro-conservative website from Stansberry and Associates. The ad came with a typical warning such as ‘this video has been banned by such and such’ or ‘this video is a dire warning the government does not want you to know about’ of a similar nature. I am paraphrasing because I don’t remember the website I saw this particular ad; nonetheless nearly all Stansberry and Associates ads come with a Conspiracy Theory hook to get you to click. AND yes I am too often guilty of clicking. The curiosity is just too much for me. You will know if you have let your curiosity get you to a Stansberry ad because if you attempt to leave the web page a box pops up asking if you really wish to leave or continue on a non-video page. Most of the time a Stansberry non-video page is the text of the video followed with a link to purchase the product.
If you Google some of the hook factoids in the ad you will discover the information is verifiable or at least partially true which increases the hook value. And so because of Stanberry losing his legal battle with the government I personally would not buy anything from Stansberry and Associates; NONETHELESS I have taken to heart his conclusions. (Actually the text version of the video I watched is signed Dr. David Eifrig, Jr., MD, MBA. Stansberry used a pseudonym in previous Internet ads such as Jay McDaniel. Thus I am uncertain if the conspiracy solution I watched was Stansberry or an actual Eifrig.)
This particular Stansberry/Eifrig ad has an interesting premise:
#1. How to legally hide some of your money from the government, and how to generate some “invisible income,” which you don’t have to report to the government or anyone else.
#2. How to maintain as much privacy as possible in a world where privacy has essentially disappeared.
#3. And how to get some of your money “off the financial grid,” so it is beyond the reach of Wall Street and big banks. (Quoted from the ad)
Eifrig then says his product will show you how to legally hide your money (I am guessing unless your intent to hide your money without the government detecting you hid your money). If you legally hide your money I presume the government will not know you have taxable monies. AND the product addresses the increasing capacity of the U.S. government and large powerful corporations to electronically monitor and/or spy on your personal business and private habits.
Again, I am not endorsing that you buy the Stansberry and Associates product. However, this long essay should inspire you to find credible and reputable methods to protect yourself from economic and/or government collapse as well as find ways to protect your privacy in things you believe is no one’s business either publicly or privately.
Below is the text of the video. The video and text are quite long so you can use the SlantRight blog to refer back to the info in the sales just for information’s sake if you choose not to buy the product. If you desire to watch the video separate from the Stansberry and Associates link I have copied it and will make it available upon risk for about a week (Let’s say March 1, 2013). You can send an email with the subject ‘Send the Video’ to email@example.com. If I don’t respond I’m afraid your email request went to my junk folder. You are welcome to give it another shot. If you actually want to buy the Eifrig product via Stansberry and Associates you will have to go to the ad link and purchase it there.
