Financial Newsletter 2009 - The Bigger Picture

I want you to see the bigger picture, question everything you've been
told and develop a coherent philosophy.


Because these are the ingredients to becoming wealthy, powerful and

A few quotes to start off:

Ben Bernanke, Federal Reserve Chairman, November 21, 2002:

"Like gold, U.S. dollars have value only to the extent that they are
strictly limited in supply. But the U.S. government has a technology,
called a printing press (or, today, its electronic equivalent), that
allows it to produce as many U.S. dollars as it wishes at essentially
no cost."

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel: "You never want a serious
crisis go to waste. This crisis [the economic turndown] provides the
opportunity for us to do things that you could not do before."

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton: "never waste a good crisis"

Bill Jenkins, market commentator: "We are not the noble people we once
were. Much of our citizenry is infected with indolence. Multitudes
look to the State as the supplier of everything from soup to nuts,
cradle to grave, and womb to tomb. You can see it in the faces of
ordinary Joes when they light up at getting their "tax refund."
Forgetting the tremendous sum of money the state has already taken,
they are just glad to "get something back. We have become a nation of
slaves. Bound to the idea that the government will provide"

Mencken, great investor: "The whole aim of practical politics is to
keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety)."

Right now, there's a big sideshow going on: bankers are being hauled
over the flames and used as a scapegoat when it was government
laziness and ignorance that let the children in the sandbox do what
they want.

Governments can't let the population get too rowdy. Torches and
pitchforks on Capitol Hill alarms governments and they have to throw
them a carcus, you see.

So the politicians vilify the rich hand in hand with the media.

But let's get real for a second. The rich and powerful control the
world. They always have and they always will.

The rich and powerful OWN the media and wish to make a profit from
doing so. FEAR SELLS so the media peddle fear. By tuning into fear
mongering news channels and newspapers you are making the rich and
powerful richer.

The rich and powerful are buddies with the politicians. They put them
in power through contributions. They know that if a government
strangles them too much they will take their business elsewhere.

Why am I telling you these sad facts?

Because I don't want you to waste your life away trying to change
this. The world is just the way it is and that's that. True, if enough
people marched through the streets and demanded a specific change and
stood by their conviction, things would change. Alas, that won't
happen. All that will happen is what is happening now: a bunch of
political rhetoric to calm down the angry mob until they forget about
it and move on.

I'm sure that you, like so many right now, would like to lynch the
boss of AIG and torture him to death. Let's say that you COULD do that
right now. Will your situation have changed?


The government, corporations and the media are mere reflections of the
masses. Each of these 3 entities gives the people what they want. The
products they want, the hopes and dreams they want, the right they
think they have to a job and free handouts, the fears they have.

The whole thing works nicely as long as everyone shuts up, pays their
taxes and lives a docile and compliant existence. People meet at
Starbucks and bitch about stuff, get it out of their system and go
back to their jobs on Monday.

By meeting you here, I know you're at least starting to question this
whole game and wondering if you should play anymore. Of course, you
should always pay your taxes, but there is a path to a more fulfilled
life where you are free of what is in effect slavery to corporations,
media and government. Indeed, as an investor, corporations and
governments can become slaves to you as they compete to borrow your
money through the issuance of bonds (IOUs) and pay you handsome

When you derive your income this way, that's when you've turned the
tables on the whole system. You've got off the merry-go-round. You've
decided NOT TO PARTICIPATE in the whole nonsense.

This is the world of the sophisticated individual; the life of a
League of Power member. Members don't delude themselves about the
reality of the world, they simply slip between the cracks and prosper
legally. Freedom comes when you break the chains you've attached from
yourself to media, government and corporations.

Remember: government and country are 2 different things! You can love
your country but dislike your government. That is how this country was

Once you dump the media, you stop being frightened. The media now work
for you- the fear and chaos that they cause makes anomalies appear in
markets that you can take advantage of.

Once you dump corporations- as in stop working for them and succumbing
to their lame marketing campaigns to buy stuff you don't need- you
become free. Income? Start your OWN corporation. Sell stuff back to
these corporations. Make them pay you interest on bonds.

Once you dump the politicians... well, I don't know what you had to
gain hanging around with those people anyway! Instead of bitching
about them devaluing the currency or whatever, a League of Power
member makes money from the fact! A League of Power member is neither
a Republican or a Democrat; they know it's all a big dog and pony show
and that in reality, both parties will reflect the mob at any given
moment. And when you think about it, how many people are Republican or
Democrat because their father and their father before them was one?
Does anyone question anything anymore?

Have a great Spring Break. Take some time out to reflect and regroup.
Life doesn't have to appear as the nightmare that the media and the
politicians want you to see it as. Remember, it's all part of the big
game- a game you don't have to play.
