Saturday Morning Treat

November 24, 2012 By: Juanita Jean Category: Uncategorized

Ole Bubba and I were tooting along the highway and heard an radio advertisement claiming that Obama had cloven hooves or some damn thing.  It was advertising a website called  (Don’t go there yet.)

The theme of this website is that President Obama is preparing to take over the country and run for another term.  I mean, face it, what could be worse than that?  Marco Rubio and Chris Christie are certainly the answer to America’s prayers.  Okay, maybe not Rubio because he’s kinda brown.

Anyway, if you’re reading this on a smart phone or your iPad, it’s safe to click this now, and you will be taken to the website to read 14,509 words this guy has written.  If you’re on a PC, you will get a redirect to his voice reading you those 14,509 words.  There is a trick to help.  Right click your mouse, hit reload, and this screen comes up —

Click STAY ON PAGE, and he will shuddup and let you read.

Okay, you can click now.

You do not have to read very far to realize that this is one crazy sumbitch.

And that he wants to sell you something.  He wants you to subscribe to his financial newsletter for $99.  And, hell, he’s taking a loss on that reduced price.

Even so, I want to make sure that everyone – literally everyone – in America has access to this information. It generally costs me about $70 or $80 to acquire and then service my customers. So, by pricing my work at less than $99 I’m taking a chance that I might actually lose money by selling you this information.

I don’t care. I’ve made plenty of money. Even if I do lose money – even a lot of money – on this deal I don’t care. It’s worth it to me to make sure that you’re informed. That you have the information you need to make smart and safe investments in this coming oil boom.

Whadda guy!  After he’s scared the crap outta you about the black guy, he’s willing to lose money helping you get rich because it’s worth it!

I want you to meet this great guy Porter Stansberry.  In 2007, he was fined $1.5 million after a bench trial against the SEC concerning … oh, you know it … fraud.

The SEC had accused the defendants of fraud concerning a “Special Report” authored by Stansberry, using the pseudonym ‘Jay McDaniel’, about publicly-listed uranium enrichment services provider USEC, Inc. and a promotional “Super Insider Tip Email” offering the Special Report for sale that was distributed on May 14, 2002, after which Pirate Investor sold 1,217 reports for $1,000 each.

Porter Stansberry is a snake oil salesman and crook defrauding people who are scared of Barack Obama.

If that ain’t a win-win, I don’t know what is.

  1. Should we have a website that sells crazy to the already-theres and harvest cash for Democrats? As Nixon says he said, “We could do it, but it would be wrong.”

  2. More proof that there’s one born every minute.

  3. My neighbor told me this crap the other week. She believes it. The economy will do so well worldwide that we will crown him king of the world, or he will take over by force.
    I kept asking her to draw me a picture of how the military and the cops would take orders from President Obama. That’s when the but, but, but began. I would ignore her as crazy but she gets this stuff from her fellow members of 2 Republicans women’s clubs. These clubs also count among their members 2 state reps. Scary stuff.

  4. A business serves its customers. I don’t mean to be crude here but “service,” used in this context is the relationship between a bull and a cow. If this is too blunt don’t publish it or delete it. He uses the word incorrectly but also lets everyone know by the incorrect usage what he is doing to his customers.

  5. I’ll take your word for it JJ; I ain’t gonna waste a keystroke to click on that garbage…

  6. Stansberry makes money off of peddling BS. Nothing like taking advice from a guy convicted of fraud.

  7. If I understand his neo-math correctly he will lose money if he has one and only one customer. If he has more than that he will be reselling the same data, but without any costs to procure it.

  8. Actually, this guy’s website has a great deal to commend it! All of us probably have acquaintances who are otherwise nice people but have Tea Party or conspiracy fixations. I’ll figure on recommending the website to them. Nothing will change their mindsets anyway, so it’ll be fun watching them blow their money on Stansberry’s newsletter!

  9. Yeah, I heard this on the radio, probably makes a lot of sense to those who aren’t too familiar with the Constitution and the ammendments. You know who I mean…
    Anyway, I figured it was the plan b commercial in case Romney won (God forbid, tooy, tooy) and they would be already starting the stop Obama from going for a second term, commercial. The many billions they got from the Rubes wasn’t enough, they are going to bilk them again.

  10. “Even if I do lose money – even a lot of money – on this deal I don’t care.”
    So… his business model will not make him any money. But trust him, if you give him $99, his business model for you will you rich.
    I think you are going to get what you pay for.

  11. Sam in Kyle says:

    Here’s a link to an article about him. When I see words like “SEC complaint” and “fraud” I get a little nervous.

  12. Bill in Paducah says:

    Though I wouldn’t trust him as far I could throw him, a lot of what Porter says is true. People are finding a lot of natural gas these days, meaning energy prices will stay low for a while. The price of energy is not as important to the economy as it used to be, but it will still be a net positive. As we continue to recover from the great recession, the economy will create those 12 million jobs Romney promised, because that was going to happen regardless of who won the election. With all that good news, 2016 is going to be a tough year for the Republicans. This is a great country and anyone who is patient and not greedy can make a good return investing in American businesses. In summary, the economy is getting better, the Dems are looking good for 2016, and Obama will go down as a good president because he’s a sharp guy who cares about people, and once you get past Washington and Lincoln, presidential quality falls off in hurry. Anything else Porter says, he’s probably making up, so no need to send him $49.50.

  13. Vickie, I had a college friend whose response to a proposal was often either, “We could do it, but it would be wrong” or “It would be wrong, but we could do it.”

    Selling crazy to the already-theres reminds me of several people who set up websites offering, for money, to adopt the pets of those who had been Raptured. This was defended as not fraudulent because the websites stated that THEY weren’t saying it was going to happen….

  14. Thanks! You saved me a lot of time. I figured that was what it was. Apparently he’s not familiar with our Constitution. Some people will DO and SAY ANYTHING for $cha-ching.
