I didn't vote for him.
I don't admire him.
I don't care for his class warfare politics… or the way he's lived his life. He's never had a real job. He's never tried to make a payroll or hit a sales goal. Instead, he constantly makes excuses for other people and himself. He tells one lie after another… and then grandstands on his “integrity.”
He's nothing but a charlatan.
Even so… I know Obama will become the greatest president in U.S. history. Much like Kennedy, this has something to do with his charisma – which I find revolting, but others clearly love. However, that's not the real reason…
No, a simple secret lies behind Obama's soaring power, which is still far from its peak.
Even as I write these words, an enormous economic force is building. It is a force that rivals the scope of every single American boom in our history – from the 1880s steel and railroad boom, to the 1920s automobile boom, to the baby boom of the 1960s and the computer boom of the '80s and '90s…
The force now behind Obama is more powerful than all of these events – combined.
This force will carry Obama back to the presidency in 2012. And yet again in 2016. It's this force that will carry him into the history books…
This new economic force will change everything about the way our country's economy works. It will also reshape the world's monetary flows… for at least the next 50 years.
It will make millions of Americans vastly wealthier… and improve the standard of living across our entire nation.
But, in the process, I believe it will also make an idol of Mr. Obama…
It will give him an unprecedented public mandate. He will use this power to reshape our country… and to redraw the rules that govern the presidency. He will seek unlimited power.
I've written you this letter to explain this new force in our economy. And to warn you about how Mr. Obama will try to use this new power and his new popularity during his next administration. The next four years will be a time of tremendous change and opportunity… but also a time of tremendous risks to the liberties we all hold dear.
Very little stands between us… and a tyrant unlike any other in American history…
My name, by the way, is Porter Stansberry.
Almost 15 years ago I founded Stansberry & Associates Investment Research. It has become one of the largest and most recognized investment research companies in the world, serving hundreds of thousands of subscribers in more than 120 countries.
I've made a lot of controversial predictions in the past – and they were right.
For example, I warned investors about Wall Street's collapse in 2008. I predicted the bankruptcy of both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. I also warned about the collapse of Lehman Brothers. I even predicted the bankruptcy of General Motors – as early as 2007.
Over many years, I've helped my subscribers profit from the dangers and the machinations of Wall Street's manipulators. To my knowledge, no other research firm in the world can match our record of correctly predicting the catastrophe that occurred in 2008. But for us, that's all old news.
What's happening now is far more important…
I'm writing to share with you the things I've learned about a massive change that's underway, right now, in the United States. I believe these new economic forces will reshape the economies of the United States and the world.
These things will change the political climate here and abroad. These new forces will increase the wealth of the United States and improve our standing in the world economy, but… in the process… they will also empower the president of the United States… perhaps enabling him to implement the most terrifying socialist policies in the history of our country.
Although I'm writing this letter before the 2012 election, I already know Obama will be re-elected to a second term. I'm certain he, or at least his proxy, will also be re-elected again in 2016, for a nearly unprecedented third term.
Using vast new powers, I believe Obama will:
- Greatly increase the size of the Fed's quantitative easing, leading to massive increases to inflation.
- Seize control of the entire 401k retirement system, forcing Americans to buy more of our government's risky debt.
- Implement vast new taxes across our economy, as they have already done with the health care program and which they will do next by implementing a national sales tax.
- Continue to expand the welfare rolls by record amounts, buying still more votes, more power and setting the stage for a third Obama term (something I'll explain in this letter.)
- Reshape our foreign policy, drawing America into partnerships with dictators and socialists around the world.
Please understand… I don't want to see Obama re-elected. But that's what's going to happen.
And please understand, I don't want to see the president gain enormous new powers, but that's what's going to happen, too.
I've written this letter, at least in part, as an attempt to stop what I now see is almost inevitable…
Unfortunately, I don't believe Obama can be stopped. Too much power stands behind him. What I can do, however, is show you how to prepare (and even prosper) from these same massive economic forces.
If our roles were reversed and you had something of value to tell me… something that could have vast influence on my life… what would you do? Would you tell me about it? Would you tell me even if I thought it was bad news? Even if it was a bitter pill to swallow?
I hope you would. And that's why I've written this letter.
In short, I believe Barack Obama will go down in the history books as one of the most powerful presidents of all time. I believe his administration will be extended into a third… and possibly even a fourth term, setting him up to become the most powerful president in history… a rival to Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Ironically… the massive new economic power at Obama's disposal has nothing to do with politics – nothing at all. In fact, what's happening right now doesn't have much to do with Obama's policies at all.
As I'll prove to you in the next few minutes – he's simply in the right place at the right time.
But I know… he's a great opportunist. He will take these events and craft them into his own vision. He will use these massive new economic powers to transform America into a modern socialist state…
Here's how I believe it will happen…
In 2015, during Obama's second term, a specific event will take place that will change the course of history in the United States.
It has to do with an unstoppable development that's underway now. This event will usher in a new age of American prosperity, the likes of which we haven't seen in decades. In fact, this upcoming event is nearly identical to events that happened in 1901 and 1930. Most Americans have forgotten how powerful these events can be. Most Americans would tell you that events like these can't happen anymore…
But they can.
They are happening right now. They create tremendous prosperity. But they also create dangerous amounts of centralized political power… political power that feeds the dynastic ambitions of mad men…
My guess is that, as you read this letter… you'll say: "There's no way this could really happen… Not here."
But just remember:
No one believed me four years ago when I said the world's largest mortgage bankers – Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – would soon go bankrupt.
And no one believed me when I said GM would soon be bankrupt as well… or that the same would happen to General Growth Properties (the biggest owner of mall properties in America).
But again, that's exactly what happened.
I've spent three years of my life studying these new events. At first, like you, I didn't believe it was possible. But… after spending more than $100,000 on this research and after spending month after month researching this topic, I'm now certain it is real.
It's going to change everything about the way America works. Most of the changes will be tremendously positive. But there's a huge political risk to what's happening… and you deserve to know about it, the good and the bad.
I'm talking about the oil and natural gas boom that's occurring right now in America.
You see, it has been decades since America witnessed a bona fide oil boom.
Most people won't recognize what's happening today – because they've never seen anything like it. They won't understand how this will change politics in America. They won't understand how it will change our economy.
That's why… to know what's going on today… we first have to take you back in time…
