This just in yesterday.  I believe that if one were to research the U.K. ‘law’ that Lady Thatcher is alleged to be responsible for described below,  it will apply only to those who can evidence their status as “U.S. citizen’ or equivalent thereof as a ‘non resident’ ‘non citizen’ “U.S. person’ and ‘resident’ who has ‘voluntarily elected’ to be treated as the same.   Study of this little known U.K. law will likely reveal more about the  current hidden agenda and undisclosed workings of the British Monarchy as ‘Sovereign”, enjoined to Vatican “Sovereign” (Superior-Pope, and “Black Pope”-“Jesuit General”-Vatican Bank), and  “City” - Bank of England-Rothchilds-Crown Temple).  The real questions beneath this ‘obscure 1979  British government initiative’ should be:  “What is the relationship of ‘Americans’ to the UNITED STATES, as well the UNITED STATES relationship to the ‘British Commonwealth’?  

It would be totally incongruent in law and commerce for a privilege to be granted by the British Sovereign to any ‘American’ or “U.S. citizen” to own British Commonwealth Shares, unless “American” or the “UNITED STATES” were in fact a British asset, possession, corporation,  and ‘member’ by ‘Commonwealth’ association. 

If ALL or most all “Americans” [generic ‘catch all’ ‘presumption’ word art] are unwittingly deemed at law to be ‘U.S. citizens’, by virtue of ‘hidden adhesion contracts’ [‘birth registration’ and application for Social Security], as well by many material undisclosed facts re: War of Independence, Treaties of Versailles,  Civil War conquest,  Civil War and post Civil War Lieber Code Martial Law occupation, and 1917 and 1933 Congressional determinations re:  ‘enemy of the state’ status, all being affixed to a STRAWMAN FRANCHISE TRUST, domiciled within corporate zone,  DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA-UNITED STATES, and unwittingly affixed and bound/bonded to the same, as a ‘compelled fiduciary’, surety, and guarantor for the U.S. STRAWMAN FRANCHISE ‘U.S. citizen’ or ‘person’, which is also a ‘U.S. vessel’ in admiralty-maritime under Title 16, the opportunity below described is actually all CORPORATE, and further establishes direct corporate franchise activities of the British owned and controlled U.S. STRAWMAN FRANCHISE with the U.K. CORPORATION.  This suggests that the U.K. Commonwealth is a corporate construct, as has been recently disclosed on FW’s re: Australia, and that the Commonwealth itself is a closely held asset of the Monarchy and its Superior Principal(s) by joinder of some nature (treaty, accord, resolution, declaration, decree, bequeath, etc.).

In brief, the opportunity described below is a privilege granted by the Sovereign, to use the Sovereign’s ‘money’ in the form of ‘bank credit’ instruments, to return to the Sovereign in the form of Sovereign’s prerogatives, terms and conditions, certain credit value attributed to the face of the contract/investment.  This would be a form of hypothecation of existing debt in the form of bankruptcy scrip or instruments of indebtedness if FRN’s were accepted as ‘good’ or ‘valuable’ or ‘legal’ tender for ‘conversion’ or ‘exchange’ into British Pounds, in order to consummate the contract.

British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher created this Cold War Initiative in the Winter of 1979 (with support from US President Ronald Reagan) to rescue the British economy from Depression and to enrich the financial well-being of all Brits.

In October 1986, the British Government officially granted Americans access.

Please remember, Reagan was working with Wanta at around this time, and Wanta was allegedly charged with at least two major undertakings.  Also, the de facto U.S. Congress assembled had changed the definition of ‘legal tender’ as pertains to Frn’s, FRn’s, and FRN’s to include only ‘Frn’s’, then at the very last section of the very last portion of the relevant Act of Sept. 14, 1982, repeals HJR-192 retro-effective to 1933, as if ‘legal tender’ never happened at all.  If there is no ‘lawful money of the United States’ in circulation as a consequence of HJR-192 and related ‘emergency’ Executive Orders and Congressional Acts, as well as suspension of ‘general common law’ remedies under Erie Rail Company vs. Thompkins, 1938, nor any valid/effective ‘legal tender’ whatsoever which includes any FRN/FRn/Frn from 1914 todate ever ‘issued’, no matter if ‘generally circulated’ or not, no matter if said circulation was/is ‘foreign’ or ‘domestic’ or not, there is nothing in the system to ‘pay a debt’ at law, nor even to “discharge obligations” at law.  No payment, no discharge.  Debt remains.  Debt is not even dischargable, because it was by virtue of HJR-192 that ‘discharge’ of obligations came about by Congressional prerogative to cause abrogation of Art.I, Sect. 10 of the Constitution.   No mater if ‘all debts’, or ‘all debts public or private’ [pre 1933 and post 1933 FRBN language] are at issue, there is nothing in the U.S.-FRBS that can be used to either pay or discharge a debt, even though since the repeal of HJR-192 in Sept. 1982, one effect of the repeal would be that U.S. banks and monetary system should be dealing in ‘common law remedy’ currency and monetary instruments, which they expressly do not.

It is my conclusion, that the current and heretofore issued/circulated/non-circulated Frn’s/FRn’s/FRN’s are now only ‘STANDARD CURRENCY UNITS’ and have no real ‘face’ or value, and that the only thing going on is a transfer of faceless/valueless paper that is in commerce, but affixed to no obligation of the institutions which have issued and/or borrowed/spent them into circulation. A SCU has a specific legal meaning which will have to be researched further, ‘par value’ being what the now defunct FRN’s are deemed, as a matter of ‘commercial value’ or ‘sentiment value’ in the ‘marketplace’.  Par value of one FRN to on silver dollar coin used to be about 10:1, but since the Dollar was put on the float and unfixed to the UST, it has lost commercial sentiment or ‘perception’ value.  That is it.  “Faith and Credit” is only a matter of “perception” as an “idea” of those who negotiate the ‘consideration’ and medium of exchange to their contracts.  If two parties agree, then it is so.  If they disagree, for whatever cause, it is not. FRN’s are not obligations of the UST, but they are still Standard Currency Unit expressions of U.S. currency, but without any legal duty or obligation of the U.S. corporation to back them or ‘value’ them.

As such, the scheme below described appears to allow foreigners, ie. U.S. persons, citizens, ‘nationals’ to invest in British Commonwealth stock Shares, and enjoy the benefit of returns on their investment.  But, the ‘investor’ is not the real man, it is the FRANCHISE TRUST CORPRATE ‘ciizen’ ‘vessel’ that is doing this. The VESSEL is being used to consolidate credit ‘value’ under some ‘investment scheme’, which is expressed or expressing in terms of ‘currency’ ‘of the realm’, which is being increased by ‘hypothecation schemes’ run by the monetary power of the Realm, the Commonwealth.  It is in net effect, increasing the value of receivables owed to the King, because it is only by ‘privilege’ or ‘license’ that the King grants any benefit to King’s subject/citizens in the first place.  The King benefits from the hypothecations, by its own franchise operations, affixed to ‘obligations’ by contract, ‘returns’, ‘interest’, taxes, etc..  The amount of ‘par value’ or ‘commodity’ spot’ value of substance gold and silver associated with an increase in the ‘share value’ of ‘Commonwealth shares’ would allow for a paper ‘appreciation’ of some order/magnitude.  That appreciation falls on the NAME of King’s FRANCHISE STRAWMAN, which the King claims all right, title, and interest to.   The ‘beneficiary’ in this scheme would be the U.S. STRAWMAN ‘citizen’ or ‘national’ ‘investor’ who becomes enjoined to the British Monarchy directly but through the already compelled association with the British Sovereign’s owned/controlled/lien-secured asset, THE UNITED STATES..  One would likely first have to be a ‘U.S. citizen’ and provide ‘proof of status’ by virtue of presenting or use of Social Security Account Number, which would be affixed to the bonded Birth Certificate, which is evidence of a 14t Amendment ‘federal citizen’, ‘taxpayer’ and ‘debtor’ in bankruptcy, in perpetuity, under occupation of the Sovereign, by Conquest and an ‘enemy of the state’ of the Sovereign. 

Hence, the scheme is  one which extorts the ‘subjects’ of the Sovereign as ‘resource’, ‘capacitor’, and ‘transfer agent’ by ‘flow through’ transactions in commerce being conducted as an excise taxable [privilege] trade or business for the Owners/Holders of the FRANCHISE.

The thing I really wanted to point out was the relationship of the U.S. to the Commonwealth, and of U.S. ‘citizens’ to the Commonwealth, as well the underlying scheme.  There is nothing different here going on.  It is just more of the same.  The high rates of return are expressed in terms of the King’s money for the benefit of the King.  The fiduciary of each franchise ‘investment’ is the real man, who has waived all his/her rights, if they exist at all under that System of law, and who has subordinated Self to King by association, birth registration, request for King’s protection, limited rights, privileges, and benefits.

The King and Commonwealth are likely running high yield trades on the use of the Bond of the U.S. ‘person’ who invests in the scheme.  Their signature on contract for this scheme likely conveys a ‘bonded’ interest to those whom they contract with.  I don’t know for certain, but as a hypothetical, that may allow for a bonded transactional value of $1M attributed to the Birth Certificate, over and above whatever the face value of the investment is.  This could be a way of transferring U.S. citizens directly into or under the Commonwealth construct without necessity of the bankrupt U.S. corporation which is also a British FRANCHISE.

Subject: How Americans qualify for British "Commonwealth Shares"

Monday, April 21, 2007

Dear International Living Reader,

What does an obscure 1979 British government initiative have to do with you and your retirement?

Well, the folks at Stansberry & Associates recently uncovered a story on something called British "Commonwealth Shares."

It might surprise you to learn that thousands of smart Americans have been collecting large sums of income through this program.

If you are looking for more retirement income, this opportunity could be perfect for you.

I'll let Brian Hunt, Stansberry's Editor in Chief, give you the complete details in the brief below.

Worried Americans Tap

into British Gov't-Issued

"Commonwealth Shares"

(& Pocket an Extra $60K-$176K Without Ever Leaving Home)


Dear Reader,

Never before in U.S. History have Americans been so grateful for the British Gov't...

Thanks to a falling U.S. Dollar, a bankrupt Social Security system... and a lackluster stock market...

Thousands of concerned Americans have been looking outside the U.S. for retirement security. And the situation they've uncovered in Britain could be the answer.

Take 65-year old Jim Nelson, for example.

In the past 3 years, Nelson's collected more income than most Americans collect in a lifetime from Social Security.

For every $100 Nelson invested, he's received 209 times his money in return.

How is this possible?

You see, Nelson is among the thousands of smart Americans who have been collecting surprisingly large sums of income through a unique British Gov't initiative my colleagues and I call "Commonwealth Shares."

British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher created this Cold War Initiative in the Winter of 1979 (with support from US President Ronald Reagan) to rescue the British economy from Depression and to enrich the financial well-being of all Brits.

In October 1986, the British Government officially granted Americans access.

And now you -- as an American -- can take advantage of this unique British initiative too, without ever leaving home... no matter how old you are, where you live, and even if you're already collecting from Social Security, 401ks, or any kind of U.S. pensions...

You don't have to fly or even place a call to anywhere in Britain either.

Most Americans will probably never hear about this opportunity in the States... even though it's incredibly lucrative and super-easy to take advantage of.

Eric Hebron – a Mid-Western asset manager – explains why:

"It is not surprising that many investors have never heard of [COMMONWEALTH SHARES] and the advantages they provide. It is an unusual stockbroker that will recommend a program when no commission is involved.  Since no commission is paid... the virtues of these plans are often unsung."  

In other words, US financial "experts" will only tell you about opportunities they can profit from.

But why would the British government help Americans pay for retirement...

And how can you possibly get in on this deal?

I've spent the past three months looking into the situation firsthand...

I've even sent several researchers to London to collect the necessary documents.

Let me share with you what I've found...

"It was so easy... " ~32 year old Erin Herrara, as quoted in the Chicago Tribune

So, what does an obscure, 1979 British Gov't initiative have to do with you and your retirement?

Erin Herrara – a graphic designer from Chicago – asked herself the same question, when friends tipped her off to a special deal made available on COMMONWEALTH SHARES.

Never having invested even in regular stocks... the 32-year old Herrara was naturally a bit skeptical.

However, the logic behind COMMONWEALTH SHARES "proved irresistible," as Herrara told the Chicago Tribune, so she invested $200...

"Everybody told me it's a very good deal," Herrara said. "And it was so easy."

So far, she's collected 20 checks since enrolling in "Commonwealth Shares", boosting her tiny $200 initial stake to an average of $5,099.24.

Can you think of any other investment in the United States realistically capable of providing that sort of return, with such regularity?

So, what exactly are "Commonwealth Shares"... and how can you possibly get in on this deal?

Let me explain...

"Quick and Large Profits... "~The Guardian

The Commonwealth Shares program got underway in 1979... as a radical new solution to Britain's worst economic crisis to date...

Janitors, paramedics, and thousands of the country's key personnel went on strike. People mobbed the streets of London, staging violent riots.

As the country began to slip into depression, Margaret Thatcher – Britain's newly elected Prime Minister – created Commonwealth Shares to save the retirement of millions of everyday British citizens...

In short, for the first time in 33 years, the British Government officially allowed the public to own equity stakes in the country's biggest and most valuable businesses.

You see, ever since the end of World War II, the British Government owned every single share of the country's largest industries.

I'm talking about steel, oil, gas, electricity, water, agriculture... . In other words, businesses vital to the British national economy... to any nation's economy, for that matter.

46 major British businesses in total. Each one a Government-owned monopoly.

The British Government staffed these companies with government employees. And they made it illegal for any competitors to enter the market.

This probably sounds a bit strange, I know...

Here in the U.S., our Gov't allows the private sector to own and run American businesses.

Not so in 1970s Great Britain...

For example, Britain didn't have several Big Telecomm companies like Verizon, AT&T, & Sprint...

Instead, they had just ONE Big Telecomm company – British Telecomm – which monopolized the Telecommunications industry for ALL of Great Britain. The government owned every single share of this monopoly.

Under the Commonwealth Shares program, the Government finally allowed private citizens to own some of these shares too.

Can you imagine what it would be like here in the States, if you and I couldn't own stock in a single US company?

What if shares of Microsoft, Exxon, Chevron, and thousands of other profitable U.S. companies were essentially off-limits to you – for more than 30 years?!

So what do you think happened when the British Government first began issuing Commonwealth Shares?

The British public ate it up!

Everyone from wealthy London aristocrats... to folks like Lawrence Butts staked their claim...

Butts – a Manchester janitor – registered for Commonwealth Shares in 1984. If you'd invested just $300 when Butts did, your stake would have climbed an incredible 33,613% in value... and would be worth $100,830 today.

So... how can Commonwealth Shares cost so little... while also generating such extraordinarily large returns? I'll show you why in just a few moments.

By 1986, roughly 9 million Brits had enrolled in the Commonwealth Shares initiative... and the British economy had gone from one of the worst in the world, to one of the fastest growing...

In fact, the program generated so much money both for the Government and for private citizens... that the British Government ended up selling off pretty much every State monopoly.

You could have bought Commonwealth Shares in pretty much any of the 46 British Government Monopolies... and watched your investment continuously rise in value...


45,090% from British Gas


22,115% from the Pennon Group (British Water)


33,450% from Scottish & Southern (British Electricity)


58,239% from Severn Trent plc (British Water)


31,105% from United Utilities (British Water)


220,056% from Forth Ports plc (British Ports)


62,714% from British Airways


17,914% from British Cable


13,708% from BAE Systems (British Aerospace)



How have these Commonwealth companies generated such large and consistent returns for shareholders?

And, if you were to tap into this program today... what kind of returns could you expect to make?

Let me get into the details...

1986 British Law Grants You Full Access...

At first, the Government allowed only British citizens to participate in this unique program.

But on October 27, 1986, the Thatcher administration passed legislation officially granting Americans access to Commonwealth Shares...

Incredible, isn't it?

For 21 years, we've been able to take advantage of arguably the world's greatest source of income... yet no one's known about it.

When a country issues COMMONWEALTH SHARES, they make it possible for everyday folks like you and me to own shares in the country's most critical businesses—which were once state-owned monopolies.

The government opens up its monopoly business to the public. You buy shares... and then you just sit back as you watch waves of money flood your bank account.

What does the Government get out of it?

Let me show you – because here's the beauty and irrefutable logic behind Commonwealth Shares...

How the British Government

Makes Sure You Make Money...

How do Commonwealth Shares pay you so much more money than regular stocks... or than other conventional US investments for that matter?

Because the Government has every reason to make sure Commonwealth Shares rise in value.


Because the more Commonwealth Shares the Government can sell to the public, the more money they can collect.

In other words, it's in the Government's best interest to make sure as many people enroll in this program as there are Shares available...

It's easy money both for new shareholders... and for the government. A genuine win-win scenario.

How does the Government entice investors to buy Commonwealth Shares?

"5-times faster than

the stock market . . ."

During their first 4 years (from '91-'95), Commonwealth Shares in the new electricity companies rose "5-times faster than the stock market," according to the Economist.

Oftentimes, the Government will "sweeten the deal"... to make sure Commonwealth Shares seem like the closest thing to a slam-dunk investment.

For instance, sometimes the Government will promise government revenue to new Commonwealth Shares companies.

This happened recently with a British Government-owned Defense company called QinetiQ (pronounced "kinetic").To make sure folks registered for Commonwealth Shares, the Gov't granted QinetiQ a 25-year contract worth $5.6 billion.

Who wouldn't think twice about buying shares?

Another way the Government might "sweeten the deal" is by issuing what are known as "special dividends" (these are unusually large – and unexpected – cash payouts made to shareholders). This happened in 1996 when National Power – a British Government-owned electricity company – paid out a whopping 33% special dividend.

Just imagine, most U.S. companies pay 2-4% in dividends over the course of one year. National Power paid 33% in one day.

Yet another way the Gov't might sweeten the deal is by offering to pay you if your investment doesn't rise in value by a certain amount.

Let me show you a quick example of what I mean by this...

In 1991, the Government issued Commonwealth Shares in the State-owned Electricity monopoly...

To encourage as many folks to buy shares as possible... the Government actually promised that you would earn a 30% return within the first 9 months.

You read that correctly:

If your Commonwealth Shares didn't rise by 30% or more on their own... then the Gov't would make up the difference.

If you've never heard of something like that happening in the States... that's because it's never happened before.

What better way to ease the minds of everyday investors, than to make an official promise – backed by the full faith and credit of the National Government – that their money will grow?

I think you get the point...

Governments rig these deals ALL THE TIME. But, you won't hear about any of these deals happening ANYWHERE in the United States.

But by now you're probably naturally wondering:

If so much money's been made from Commonwealth Shares since 1979... then how can I possibly expect to benefit from this situation...?

Let me show you what's up for grabs right now... and how you can claim your stake...

 "... a Program Far Bigger than Anyone

Would have Expected at the Start."~Pulitzer Prize Winning Author Daniel Yergin

Today, you can potentially collect more money from Commonwealth Shares than folks did in 1980s Great Britain...

How so?

Because after Commonwealth Shares proved to be a success in Great Britain, the program quickly spread to former British colonies such as Canada, New Zealand, Cyprus, Malta, Singapore, Australia...

These countries, along with 46 others (including Great Britain), make up what's known as the British Commonwealth.


Today, these are among the richest and most stable countries in the world, thanks in large part to their Commonwealth Shares program.

In 1986, Canada was one of the first to follow Britain's lead... with the Government issuing dividend-rich "Commonwealth Shares" in 30+ Gov't Monopolies, including:

  • Cameco (former Canadian Uranium Monopoly): 60+ dividends, hiked its payout this year by 25%.
  • BC Telecomm (merged with Telus in '99): 523% return; PLUS 4 dividends paid out every single year since merging with Telus (T.TO) in 1999.
  • Potash (Canadian Agriculture): 606% returns; PLUS 64 dividends – that's 4 payouts every single year since the Canadian Gov't first issued Commonwealth Shares in 1990.

New Zealand, Malaysia, and whole slew of other Commonwealth followed suit...




Kirloskar Oil Engines Ltd. – up 2,943% since nov ‘02 (and paid out 9 dividends)


Bajaj Hindusthan Sugar & Industries Ltd.— up as high as 6,123% since June ‘04


Triton Corp – 1,587% returns


Confidence Petroleum – 10,630% in the past 3 years

In December 1993, for example, India's Commonwealth Shares program kicked off. And it's still going strong today. Take a quick look at the box to your right, where I've highlighted a few example from the past 5 years...

Today, there are literally hundreds of different British Commonwealth shares in the pipeline... and many more that have been recently issued...

So what are the Commonwealth Share opportunities available today?

The money available is incredible.

Let me show you. And remember, you never have to leave home...

Why We've Visited More than

20 Countries in the Past Year

With 53 Commonwealth countries and literally hundreds of different Commonwealth Shares to choose from...

How do you know which are the absolute best to buy right now?

Well, over the past 6 months, my colleagues and I came up with a short list of Commonwealth Nations worth looking at:

Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, the UAE, and close to a dozen others.

After investigating each of these countries firsthand... one country emerged as the consensus favorite as a place to buy Commonwealth Shares.

What makes this place the best? Well, its economy's growing even faster than China's... the World Bank ranks this place as the #1 country in the world to do business, even safer and more credible than Britain or Switzerland... and it's a longtime ally of America...

U.S. businesses love this country's super-low corporate taxation rate, which takes about 50% less than what the US Gov't takes each year.

So it's no wonder 1,300 U.S. businesses have operations here, from big names like Exxon to small caps like Codex, a California-based biotech firm.

These big US businesses have much more money on the line than either you or I... or any one person could ever have at stake...

Bottom line, no place in the world right now offers a better environment for investors...

After spending a week in this tiny island nation, our research team came back to the states with two phenomenal ways to own Commonwealth Shares.

Let me tell you a bit about each:     

  • 1) Commonwealth PROPERTY Shares: Make a Fortune from Asia's 8 Fastest Growing Markets

    This unique group of Commonwealth Shares grants you ownership of residential and high-end luxury properties in Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia – 8 of the hottest property markets on the planet. Not only have these shares paid out dividends every single year for the past 18 years, but they've also steadily increased the size of payouts in that time by 400%. They've also paid out special dividends every year for the past 6 years, generally 2-10 times larger than the norm. Buy these shares today and don't look back.

  • 2) Commonwealth TELECOM Shares: 3-times more Profitable than Verizon

These gov't-created Commonwealth Shares – which have a stranglehold on Telecomm throughout ALL of Asia, India, the Philippines, Singapore, Indonesia, and Australia – have been 3-times more profitable than Verizon over the past few years. According to company policy, they must pay out 40-50% of yearly earnings to shareholders as dividends, which they've done for 11 consecutive years. Not to mention, 4 enormous special dividends on top of that.

I've only given you a snapshot of each Commonwealth businesses we're recommending.

But as you can probably see, each of the two we've highlighted offers you:

1)Big and steady dividends

2)large potential returns

3)and exposure to rapidly growing industries

I recommend buying an equal number of Commonwealth Shares in both businesses – sooner, rather than later.

If you'd invested $1,000 in both of these companies in 2003-2004... your initial stake would be worth $15,438.52 today.

Can you think of any other reliable way to turn $3,000 into more than $15,000 in less than four years?

My analysis suggests these Commonwealth Shares could generate 3-5 times that amount over the next three to four years.

But don't just take my word for it...

Leading Finance Professors Agree...

A collaborative study of Commonwealth Shares, conducted by the University of Oklahoma, Wake Forest University, The University of Miami and the University of Georgia compared them to regular stocks over 1-year, 3-year, and 5-year periods.

They took the average return from 158 Commonwealth Shares businesses over those periods, and put those numbers up against average returns for the S&P 500 index, and against the FT World Index (Global stock markets).

Here's what the study found:

According to the data above, Commonwealth Shares clearly generate higher returns than regular stocks – at home in the States and also abroad.

Other financial academic studies show similar results: 

  • Anthony Boardman, Claude Laurin, and Aidan Vining published their own study on Commonwealth Shares in the Canadian Journal of Administrative Sciences. The study concluded, among other things, that once a Government makes Commonwealth Shares available to the general public, "dividend payments increase significantly."

A study conducted by the World Bank reached the same conclusion: 

"The average ratio of dividend payout to profits increases — from 23 percent to 46 percent [once Gov't issues Commonwealth Shares]...

Simply put, Commonwealth Shares return much more money to shareholders – both in the short term and the long term. And they also steadily increase the amount of money they pay you in dividends too.

If you'd like more information on my favorite COMMONWEALTH SHARES... then I encourage you to read our full white paper briefing, which we recently published.

You can receive it at no charge.

Here's how...

How to Pick Up the World's

Best Commonwealth Shares Today

My name is Brian Hunt.

I'm the Research Director of Stansberry & Associates Investment Research – a private financial research firm, headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland.

At Stansberry & Associates, we routinely seek out unique and profitable investment ideas... opportunities you're not likely to hear about in the mainstream financial media or through big brokerage houses. 

Unlike big investment firms, we focus our efforts on lesser-known investment deals. After all, who wants to pay for investment advice you can get in the newspaper?

That's why my colleagues and I have spent the past 11 months tracking down the details of the COMMONWEALTH SHARES program, as part of our research for my monthly retirement advisory called International Strategist.

We created this research service to give Americans another way to think about retirement.

You see, we believe that if you want to retire comfortably in the U.S., you've got to start looking beyond U.S. borders with your investments.

Why do I say that?

Well... it's simple, once you look at the cold hard facts...

You'd probably agree U.S. stocks, by and large, have done quite well over the past 5 years.

In fact, we've just had one of the three longest bull markets in U.S. history. The stock market as a whole is up 74% during that period.

Not bad.

But did you know that if you had simply looked overseas with just a tiny percentage of your portfolio, you could have made safe gains of 5- 10-times as much.

In 1998, for instance, Greece's stock market rose 93.5% in just 12 months.

You can find similar examples, going as far back as 1980. Every single year, a stock market outside the US crushes the world-wide average.

Not once in 27 years does the U.S. stock market emerge as the global champion. Not once in 20+ years.

And this past year? How did US stocks stack up against the rest of the world?

Well, take a look at the world's top three stocks for 2006-2007:

Where do U.S. stocks fall on this list?


Not in the top ten. Not even in the top fifty.

The top 3 best performing US stocks (with a market capitalization greater than $1 billion) don't come anywhere close.

Take a look:

It's not just U.S. stocks either...

U.S. mutual funds are losing big-time to international funds.

Take a look at the top 5 performing mutual funds from this past year:

#1) Dreyfus Premier Greater China A (DPCAX) up 85.58%

#2) Oberweis China Opportunities (OBCHX) up 81.17%

#3) Old Mutual Clay Finlay China Inst (OMINX) up 79.54%

#4) JHancock Greater China Opp A (JCOAX) up 70.34%

#5) Columbia Greater China A (NGCAX) up 69.50%

Every single one of the mutual funds listed above focuses on international investments.

I'm not trying to scare you with this data.

Not at all.

My point is this:

Who knows where exactly the U.S. stock market and the US dollar will go from here... but you can be sure every single year there's a great investment opportunity available if you are simply willing to look beyond U.S. borders.

That's why we launched International Strategist.

And that's why we hired a Tom Dyson as lead researcher.

Though he's worked on Wall Street and now lives in the States... Tom grew up in Britain... where he spent the better part of two decades examining the different ways people in other countries are planning for retirement...

He's a member of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants—Britain's rigorous accounting certification program. And Tom's also worked on the trading floor at Citigroup in London—the largest bond-trading firm in the world.... where, trillions of dollars worth of trades passed over his desk every day, from every major country you can think of.

In just the past year, Tom and his researchers have spent considerable fact-finding time in Zurich, Switzerland, Dubai, Paris, Singapore, New Zealand, China, Japan, Canada, throughout the U.S... and, of course, the United Kingdom, where COMMONWEALTH SHARES originated...

If you are as interested in this idea as I am, I encourage you to have a look at our special investment report called: Commonwealth Shares – An Upperclass Retirement, Courtesy of the British Government.

This recently published report contains all of the essential details on Commonwealth Shares including the 2 very best Commonwealth investments in the world right now – as well as simple instructions on how to get started.

I'd like to send you a copy of this Research Report, our compliments. In return, I ask only that you try a subscription to International Strategist.

Let me tell you about something else you'll receive – on us – if you are interested in trying my investment research...

Have You Heard of CHIMERICA?

I want to tell you about a stock phenomenon going on in China right now that could make you rich...

My colleagues and I call it CHIMERICA.

Let me explain why...

You see, today, there are about 20 million officially registered businesses in China...

And the majority of these companies are growing so fast that they want to go public... and have their shares listed on China's stock exchanges.

But here's the thing...

There's a 3-year waiting period just to get listed on the Chinese stock exchange.

So China's most promising young start-up companies are now turning to the United States.

In other words, there's actually a stock market for Chinese stocks – right here in the USA.

Forbes calls it a "dream market for both Chinese entrepreneurs and international investors in the U.S."

Hard to believe, I know... especially since it's rarely publicized here in America. But this amazing situation can help you make a fortune in the next 18 months.

Because their shares are listed right here in the States, the SEC reviews these companies' applications – and approves or denies them.

To stay in the U.S., they MUST follow U.S. accounting standards – they must play by the same rules as any other America public company like Johnson and Johnson and Exxon. That way, you know you're investing in a credible and legitimate business.

In short, you can now buy shares of great Chinese companies right here in the United States – oftentimes for pennies a share.

These aren't second-tier Chinese businesses either...


Many have lucrative contracts with China's National Government in Beijing...

Take China Security & Surveillance Technology (CSCT), which provides security and surveillance equipment for the Chinese Government.

Rather than wait years to go public on China's stock exchange, this small company listed in America first...

And we're glad they did...

When the Chinese government passed a law mandating this company's surveillance at every nightclub, every Internet cafe and every bar in China... shares began to skyrocket in value.

If you'd invested in China Security & Surveillance Technology within the past two years… then you're probably sitting on a fortune today. Since July '05, shares have risen as high as 64,900%. That's more than 64-times your money, in little over two years.

Ordinarily, you and I would NEVER have access to an opportunity like this one. In the past, Chinese stocks like China Security and Surveillance Technology only traded in China -- on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges.

But today – thanks to "Chimerica," you can now buy shares of these super fast-growing Chinese companies – right here in the U.S.A.

Essentially, these U.S.-listed companies are China's high-growth superstars of tomorrow. Fully-backed and oftentimes funded by the cash-rich Chinese Gov't, shares of these companies are available on U.S. exchanges today...

Here are just a few examples of the money being made...

  • Shares of China Precision Steel (CPSL:NASDAQ) have climbed as high as 877% since Sept '02... jumping 167% in the last 6 months alone. 
  • In the past 5 years, shares of China 3C have risen as much as 2,003% -- that's a $100,156 return for every $5,000 invested. Just last year, shares rose as much as 277% in value.
  • China Natural Gas – a "Chimerica" company – has seen its shares rise as much as 2,081% since 2005. If you'd invested just 500 bucks in this company, you could have cashed out with as much as $10,405 – in just two years time.

If you want to take advantage of this unique situation, you must hurry. The best deals are in the works right now.

You'll receive my special investment report on this situation, called Chimerica: How to Make a Fortune from China's Biggest Secret – Right Here in the USA, at no charge, as part of your trial subscription to INTERNATIONAL STRATEGIST.

Inside, you'll immediately find out our two favorite Chinese stocks-traded in the States... as well as the easiest way to buy them.


Let me tell you some more about this unique research service and our firm,so you might have a better understanding...

You won't find these ideas anywhere else...

If you've never heard of Stansberry & Associates before, I'm not at all surprised.

We're an independent financial research firm.

Meaning, our business does not depend on the special interests, banking deals, and trading commissions that most of your big-name Wall Street firms use to make money.

The University of Michigan's Retirement Research Center

lists THREE potentially big advantages to foreign investing:

Advantage #1: "It can reward investors with a higher return for the same risk."

Advantage 2: "Foreign investment may offer inflation protection."

Advantage 3: "International investment can help diversify risk... and offer more investment

So how do we prosper as a business?

We get paid solely on the basis of our investment ideas, which we publish in more than a dozen different trading research products and investment newsletters.

If our moneymaking ideas make money for our readers, then we grow as a business. That's Stansberry & Associates in a nutshell.

So far, I think we've done pretty well as a business... and for our readers...

What began as a 3-person company in 1999 with less than one thousand readers... is now a mid-sized firm with readers in more than more than 50 different countries... and with 40+ employees on the payroll.

In Baltimore, MD, you can find our corporate headquarters at 1217 St. Paul Street... at the northern end of Baltimore's historic Mt. Vernon district... in a refurbished 19th century Railroad Mansion, once owned by the famous Winans Family.

We also maintain satellite offices in Florida, San Francisco, the Pacific NW... as well as abroad, in Waterford, Ireland, London, Germany, and Australia.

Our most exciting new investment research service is International Strategist. As I mentioned, Tom Dyson is the lead researcher for this service.

For the better part of a year, Tom and his fellow analysts at Stansberry & Associates have been on the road and in the air, traveling throughout the US... and investigating opportunities in more than 20 countries.

The moneymaking opportunities they've uncovered... are, well, quite simply, you won't hear of them any place else...

For example:


AAA-rated Government Note that Pays You 17.1+% in Just One Year?


While U.S. Bonds pay you 5% tops, We recently found a Government note that yields more than 3-times as much. It's AAA-rated too, making it as one of the lowest risk investments around. The best part? It matures in just 12 months, as opposed to 5 or 10 years.


Why US Mainstream Financial Media Won't Tell You About China's Secret City


Mainstream U.S. Financial press always talks about the big money at stake in the Chinese cities of Shanghai and Beijing. But they're missing the biggest moneymaking opportunity in all of China. It's a city bigger than both Shanghai and Beijing combined. And the Chinese Gov't's pouring one billion dollars every single month to modernize it as quickly as possible. We've discovered the absolute best way to make a lot of money from this situation, with very little risk.

You'll have full and unfettered access online to our reports on these opportunities... as soon as you begin your trial subscription to International Strategist.

So how do you know if International Strategist is right for you?

Here's what I propose...

Try it for 6 Months – Pay Nothing,

Keep Everything

There's a super-easy, no-risk way to receive everything I've mentioned in this letter, including

  • Investment Research Report #1: Commonwealth Shares – An Upperclass Retirement, Courtesy of the British Government

Just click on the link at the end of this email, and let my staff in Baltimore know that you'd like to begin your 6-month trial subscription.

Six months should give you plenty of time to decide if you like my research and my investment philosophy. If you decide International Strategist is not for you, simply let me know by phone, mail, or e-mail, and we'll completely reimburse you for the entire subscription fee of $49.50.

How much does International Strategist cost? And how can you get started?

Before I give you the specifics, let me quickly tell you about one more investment idea We're excited about right now...

Canada's Best-Kept Retirement Secret

If you're looking for another reliable source of retirement income...then you need to look North, across the border...

I'm referring to a special group of 14 Canadian businesses that have been paying out dividends to shareholders – every single year, some as far back as the early 19th century!

190 years of regular dividend checks?!

Can you imagine that...?

I'm not talking about Canadian Income Trusts, Canadian Oil Sands, or any other Canadian investment you may have heard about. There's nothing else like it in Canada...

And there's definitely nothing else like it in the United States.

All you have to do is simply look North of the Border... and you'll find this amazing opportunity to collect tremendous amounts of income, for the next decade and beyond.

For example, one Canadian company, based out of Nova Scotia, has paid out dividends to shareholders every single year since 1832. PLUS, they've increased payouts in 27 of the last 29 years.

Another one of these unique businesses, founded in Halifax by 8 Canadian merchants, has paid out dividends every single year since 1870.

And one company – based in Quebec – performed its first business deal in 1818... and has been paying out dividends every year since 1829!

ALL 14 of these unique Canadian companies are swimming in cash...

Here's the best part...

Since 1856 these businesses have been required to make monthly returns to the shareholders.

It's no wonder these special Canadian companies have beaten the U.S. stock market over the past four decades...

"... loves the dividends"

"My mother has owned these Canadian businesses for over 15 yrs and she LOVES the dividends. They let you sleep well at night even when the market is tanking."

~Anonymous, Investor

US message board posting

And it's no wonder Morningstar – the world-renowned investment data firm – says these businesses "simply produce results"... and why Barrons recently wrote that one of these companies has "one of the most consistent records for dividend growth."

We've put together a special investment White Paper Briefing called Constitutional Dividends – Canada's Best-Kept Retirement Secret.

Best of all, when you take a trial subscription to International Strategist newsletter, you'll receive a copy of Constitutional Dividends - Canada's Best-Kept Retirement Secret, yours to keep, no matter what you decide once your trial subscription ends.

The point is, if you are retired... or if you are considering retirement, International Strategist can help you support a lifestyle you may not have thought was possible.

International Strategist costs only $49.50 for an entire year of research and reports.

Is it worth paying the equivalent of just $4 and change a month to learn about safe and profitable investment opportunities you'll hear about nowhere else?

I absolutely believe so. If I didn't passionately believe in the research my team and I are doing... then I wouldn't spend 200+ days out of the year living out of airport terminals, foreign hotels... my travel-worn briefcase in tow, traveling from one country to the next...

I'd like you to have the opportunity to try International Strategist for the next 6 months, without feeling obligated to pay a single penny.

When you sign up for a trial subscription to International Strategist today, you will receive instant access to:

  • 12 Monthly International Strategist Newsletter reports, delivered on the first Thursday of every month. You'll receive a copy first by e-mail, then by regular mail too.
  • Research Report #1: Commonwealth Shares – An Upperclass Retirement, Courtesy of the British Government
  • Research Report #2: Chimerica: How to Make a Fortune from China's Biggest Secret – Right Here in the USA
  • Research Report #3: Constitutional Dividends – Canada's Best-Kept Retirement Secret

Take the next six (6) months to have a look at our work closely.

If you don't agree that International Strategist delivers the safest and most lucrative financial ideas and recommendations you've ever received, please contact Stansberry & Associates by phone, e-mail, or regular mail, and we will see that you receive full reimbursement for the money you've paid.

The longer you wait to get started with these investments, the less money you will have for retirement.
