Bucking the Status Quo

By:


Somewhere around 100AD a Roman named Tacitus said, “If you would know who controls you see who you may not criticize.”

For thousands of years, “citizens” of the world have been brought up with the following messages deeply programmed into our minds:

  • Truth comes from authority.
  • Taxes are not extortion, it’s a social contract.
  • Intellectual and social conformity is rewarded.
  • Non-compliance is punished.

Why is this normal? And, why should it not be?

What does that mean? Well, kids come out of college today with knee pads on – ever ready to kneel before authority; with no intrinsic need or understanding of human beings being totally free in a free market system; and with a mindset that you can’t facilitate exchange without a central planner.

This is against the basic laws of Entrepreneurship, Libertarianism, and human nature.

So, what is my idea of what normal should look like? It’s simple:

  • People should not be slaves.
  • Everything people do should be voluntary.
  • Don’t use violence.

I have been writing blogs and making videos for many years, getting around 1 million views on some videos, until I was criticized from a number of social media outfits for upsetting the establishment by not agreeing with their coercive point of view.

I am not alone. There are a great many highly informed and experienced people who share my views to a greater or lesser degree.

We do not agree on everything and I believe if two people agree on everything one of them is not needed.

But, apparently, disagreeing with the status quo makes us all insurrectionists and trouble makers.

And, I guess being deleted from mainstream media for questioning forced compliance and extortion makes me “fringe”.

Then so be it.

Does the United States Still Have an Economy?

By:


 The US financial sector has long looted other countries. A number of participants have described the process. First a country is enticed with bribes to the leaders to take out loans that cannot be serviced or repaid. Then in comes the IMF. Austerity is imposed on the population. Public services and employment are cut to free resources for debt service, and public assets are sold to repay the loan. Living standards fall, and US corporations take over the country’s economy.

As foreign governments, having experienced or witnessed the economic carnage and fearing accountability, are less willing to be bribed into indebting their countries, American finance is now applying this technique to Americans. Contrary to the narrative in the financial press, the Federal Reserve is not raising interest rates in order to fight inflation. It is ludicrous to think that a three-quarters of one percent rise in a very low interest rate is going to have any impact on a 9.1% rate of consumer inflation or that speculation that the Federal Reserve has in mind another three-quarters of one percent possibly followed by one half of one percent comprise an anti-inflation policy. If all these increases occur, it still leaves the interest rate below the inflation rate. 

 The Federal Reserve’s rise in interest rates is just a continuation of its policy of concentrating income and wealth in the hands of the One Percent. Quantitative Easing was the cloak for the Federal Reserve to print $8.2 trillion in new money which was directed or found its way into the prices of stocks and bonds, thus enriching the small number who own most of these financial instruments. 

 Having maxed out this avenue of wealth concentration, the Federal Reserve is now raising interest rates in order to drive up mortgage costs to aspiring home owners. The Federal Reserve is driving individuals out of the housing market in order to free up properties for “private equity” firms to purchase homes for their rental values. That private equity firms see rental income from the existing stock of houses as the best investment opportunity tells us that the US economy has played out. When investment goes into existing assets, not into producing new assets, the economy ceases to grow. 

A no-growth economy is the end result of a financialized economy. With such a large share of household income spent on debt service, little is left for driving the economy forward.

Bottom Line: The world’s largest economy” (the United States)” is today total fiction. It does not have an economy.

You will never hear it from the mainstream media in the financial press, but the United States is on the precipice of economic and social collapse. And what are the fools in Washington doing? The idiots are ginning up wars with Russia, China, and Iran. 

Go figure….

2022: Why Capitalism is the Only answer to freedom, prosperity and well-being.

By:


Frankly, I don’t know what’s happening to America anymore. I am just afraid we have become a nation that has lost its common sense and collective mind.

  • We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.
  • Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.
  • Universities that advocate race equality, discriminate in favor of African-Americans.
  • Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.
  • Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of THEIR rights.
  • People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.
  • People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.

We are clearly living in an upside-down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good.

Welcome to SOCIALISM in America…. This is unsustainable.

We at the Financial Policy Council and within our ZSharks group of warriors want America to succeed. Every individual should succeed….not to take orders from a socialist government that never succeeded before in the history of humanity but keep spending trillions of dollars on projects going nowhere and on bailing out failed policies.

So how do you REDEFINE CAPITALISM to mount this growing threat out there?

Well… I am here to give you a little bit of what the world is holding back from you.

The god dam truth about Darwin, scarcity and the world you actually live in.

It is not the warm place your parents and teachers told you about.

It is populated by people who will tear you apart.

Nature did not select them. They selected themselves by harnessing their nature.
You wanna prosper and thrive; not just survive? Be bold, be hungry, be a shark, subjugate and conquer. Yes… this is who we are. That’s what we are. No one is here to help you but yourself

There is never been a better time in human history than today to make real money with all the technology and asset classes out there. Yet, so few have embraced capitalism. On the contrary, the whole world is headed today towards socialism and the radical left. People are smarter, more aware and better educated than ever …. yet have no clue how to monetize their assets and knowhow other than slaving for wages … if you call this “money”.

Instead of creating a whole new world where capitalism is embraced by all; it is today only embraced by the very few who call the shots ….while the gap between the rich and poor is only growing.

Governments worldwide are obsessed in creating jobs rather than creating an environment conducive to wealth creation.

So what do you do? Do you lift everyone up to become true capitalists or bring everyone down to embrace socialism and government dependence?

I made my choice…. You’d better make yours before it’s too late.

Capitalism… is better than any other economic model on earth. Everything we have is because of capitalism…. cause someone out there had an incentive to get up off his ass and outsmart others less capable, less intelligent, less ambitious and less lucky to make those capitalistic dreams come true.

The Financial Policy Council is just the beginning of a movement in the making. A place to answer the real tough questions, resolving issues and creating REAL WEALTH. Short on words and long on actions. All that matters.

The NYT recently wrote an op-ed advising us not to think. They say thinking requires using your unreliable brain and will lead you into conspiracy theories. What a load of crap.

Klaus Shwab; Chairman of the elitist World Economic Forum tells us you won’t own anything and you will be happy. Heard it directly from the horse’s mouth last time I was in Davos

Same broken record from the Council of Foreign Relations…. All plotted over a decade ago by global elitists such as Zbigniew Brzezinski and the likes. I witnessed it personally as a member of the Council … not anymore.

It is all about power, money and control. Either you have it and control your destiny or they have it and control yours.

All the rest is just noise, Propaganda and brainwashing. Nothing else

So how do you avoid all this crap and thrive when capitalism is under siege?

Well… it boils down to one thing no matter who is President and the status of the market; whether it is up or down.

Look for megatrends and how the dollar is moving and its correlation with other asset classes.

Technology is moving so fast that it’s really hard for the average person to keep up. By the time they hear about it from the mainstream media, it’s already too late. Plays already in place. And the big money has been made.

For that reason, a lot of people end up missing out on big investment deal making opportunities…. And that’s where we at the Council can help.

At the end of the day, make no mistake about it. Money is first and foremost about freedom and not about acquiring things nor flaunting them in front of family and friends. Money is about the freedom to do whatever one wants, whenever they want.
There is nothing fair in this world. So get used to it

FIVE THINGS I strongly recommend you to start practicing in your journey to Wealth Creation.

  1. Change Your Attitude – Stop apologizing you are privileged, a capitalist or a free spirited guy. Nothing to apologize for . PUSH BACK or you will get pushed
  2. Better Control your time – Stop wasting your valuable time on social media bullshit amplifying the propaganda of COVID 19 and vaccines. Change the narrative. Don’t play in their hands.
  3. Learn how to Manage your network/career smartly. Successful people build networks not slave at jobs
  4. Lose the emotion when managing your assets. You will never make REAL Money by being a wimp and crumbling every time you see volatility in the mark
  5. Never pitch an idea where you don’t have Skin in the game

THIS IS WAR…I hope you are ready for it.

Now if you are a dumb ass good for nothing and still cannot grasp any of the above, then do yourself a big favor and get married to a similar dumb ass billionaire’s girl and have your kids memorize the above …. You will thank me for it for the rest of your life.

Real Wealth Creation: Wealth for Generations to Come

By:


Everyone wants to craft some “genius” plan to become wealthy, but how many people are actually planning to create long term generational wealth. To be honest, it’s quite easy to gain massive riches and fortune for yourself, but the challenge is creating and sustaining that wealth, not only for you, but for your family and generations to come. The goal should never be just to get rich quick, you want to make sure that you have a chance to make an impact on others and that your family is set for life.

So many people complain about the gap in wealth, but only want to accept solutions where wealth is just handed to them. This is not how real life works. Nobody’s going to give you anything in life for free. It’s up to you to go out and grab it, otherwise it’s going to come with a major price…your freedom. If you really want to make a difference in the gap in wealth, your focus should be on building wealth and passing on your financial knowledge. Building your legacy. Family wealth opens up other opportunities for the empowerment of other people when it comes to education and careers.

Don’t be fooled, building your legacy and working to close the wealth gap isn’t solely about leaving a large inheritance. Not everyone will be able to do that in their lifetime. But, we can all do our part to give the next generation the tools they need to succeed. If you are just reconciling yourself to building up your savings, the thought of saving for the next generation can be overwhelming. So don’t find yourself discouraged because you’re not saving millions of dollars to pass along. Generational wealth is just as much about money and wealth as it is having the right financial skills, and values that are passed onto the next generation. Your family will benefit long term just from giving them access to a deeper understanding of socioeconomic issues and barriers that would otherwise limit them.

Besides, if you don’t educate your children about money management, they are likely to go on a spending spree and take your wealth for granted. This means that the prosperity of the generations will last only one generation, which alone is unsustainable, and the third generation will start from scratch. That is why you can go a long way to ensuring that the value of your money is a priority when you are drawing up your plan to generational prosperity.

Outside of just passing along financial knowledge, there are a ton of ways for you to create generational wealth. And no, they don’t require you to be millionaires.

  • Investing in stocks is widely accepted as a way to build long-term wealth and probably the most obvious
  • You can also increase your generational wealth by investing in real estate or expanding your business. Unlike equities, real estate is an illiquid investment strategy, and can be bought and sold with a much higher return than equities, owing to its high volatility.
  • Creating a family business. When you think of real generational wealth, you often think about wealthy families who continue their generational wealth through their well-known companies, but most of these companies started extremely small and continued to grow over many generations. These companies not only created generational wealth for their families but have impacted whole communities through creating jobs and empowering the economy.

And these are just a few of the ways you can ensure that you pass on the wealth of your generations appropriately.

Of course, not all families will be billionaires, but you can pass on skills and values that your children can use to build a better life and create wealth that could eventually be passed on to your grandchildren. If you leave something behind for your child or grandchildren, it will also bring about the prosperity of the generations. For example, you can invest in stocks and real estate and build your business so that you can leave some of it with your children. Just imagine the difference it would have made for your life if your parents had fully funded your college education and made a down payment on your first house.

Once you have children, take the time to teach them about personal finances and start a vehicle to secure their financial future. Instead of paying off debt and saving for a down payment, you could invest and start a business, or even invest in your own business. Give them the financial headstart you wish your parents would have given you.

Trust and believe, waiting around for someone to save you and your family is a waste of time. If you want real wealth, you have to go out and grab it. Laying the foundation now is the first stepping stone. So, don’t fall for the media hype that makes building wealth seem like some huge secret that only an exclusive group has access to. That’s simply not true. You don’t need a deep introspection or personality test, just to find your motivation. You don’t need the media to define what is right for you and what is not. What you need is the knowledge, the drive, the willpower to reach out and grab the life of wealth and freedom that you desire.

The Most Common Reason More People Aren’t Buying Crypto

By:


It’s no secret, if you want to build real wealth, you have to learn how to strategically make your money work for you. Which is why you hear so many wealthy people speak on the importance of investing. However, with investing comes risk and a lot of people are too afraid to step out of their little box and play with the real sharks. So, when an opportunity like crypto currency comes around, you can imagine just how many people are hesitant to invest. They sit around waiting to see the results and envy those that took the initiative to capitalize on the opportunity.

The vast majority aren’t buying into crypto for the same reason more people don’t buy stocks, or put money into an IRA. They’ve been brainwashed into thinking that the best way to grow their funds is to slave at a job and put their money into a savings account. Little do they realize, that’s a much bigger gamble than any form of investment. The slightly smaller majority isn’t buying into crypto because the vox populi hasn’t given it’s seal of approval, In other words, crypto isn’t “cool” yet.

There are many other reasons more people aren’t buying crypto currencies and to be honest, they’re all quite stupid. For instance, some simply don’t understand what crypto currency is. My advice, do your research and educate yourself. Others fall victim to fear, but how can you expect to achieve big results if you’re always playing it safe? A lot of people think that they’re too late to join the party. But trust me, this is only the beginning. And they don’t even get me started in mainstream media manipulation. Learn to separate fact from fiction and make decisions based on your own findings.

While all these reasons contribute to why people shy away from the opportunity to gain real wealth, there’s one reason that makes even experienced investors miss out.

Thinking that crypto is a bubble.

Here’s the reality of things, everything is a bubble, it’s just cyclical. That goes for investing in stocks. That goes for starting a business. That goes for real estate. It can even apply to employment. Literally, EVERYTHING. So, why would you let that stop you?

What happens when the housing market crashes? It creeps back up, and then crashes again and so on. People always try to make a comparison between crypto currency and the Dot Com bubble. But look at the facts, most websites haven’t gone anywhere since that bubble burst. In fact, websites and virtual presence are now essential to building your business. This will almost surely be the case for crypto. Cash is losing value faster than ever and will eventually be replaced. Now is the time to jump in and place your bet.

If Crypto currencies were a company, it would be like Facebook. It’s still in its early phases where only college students are using it and your parents aren’t going to have FB pages for at least another 6 years.

There’s inherent risk in everything: from crossing the street to making an investment. The people who are investing in crypto currency right now are the early adopters, the risk takers, and the true believers.

I’m not saying everyone should buy into BTC, but if you want to be a big shark, you can’t stay in the small pond forever. But I get it, not everyone wants to play big and not everyone can stand the fire. It wouldn’t surprise me if the average person goes into crypto investing during its meteoric rise and invests at the end of an uptrend- then watch it crash. They’ll pull out their money at the first sight of a huge loss and swear off crypto, while telling everyone who will listen that it’s a scam.

Crypto investing may not be for everyone, but if you’re willing to educate yourself about the market, develop a trading strategy, and stick by your plan- crypto investing will be a valuable financial tool. Especially if you’re someone who isn’t happy with the fact that the world is run by manipulating financial institutions. This is your opportunity to take back control.

So, don’t be foolish and fall into the stupidity trap set to have you live a life of mediocrity and fear. Educate yourself, strategize and go for the risk.
