About David Tice

Tice founded the Prudent Bear Fund (BEARX) and served as portfolio manager from 1996-2008. For the ten years ended 12/08 when Tice sold the fund, BEARX increased in value at a 8.0% annualized rate, while the S&P 500 lost 1.4% annually. Tice utilized short sales of overvalued common stocks and stock indices, as well as being long mining companies to achieve a negatively-correlated investment return profile. Mr. Tice began his investment career in 1988 by publishing Behind the Numbers, an investment research service that focused on “Quality of Earnings Warnings and sell recommendations” for more than 150 money managers who collectively managed more than $2 trillion.

His work gained national recognition through several Barron's articles he wrote, and from more than 200 appearances on business television. Tice has taken the role of a Cassandra to warn investors about the dangers of investing near the end of a secular bull market and the problems with relying on credit growth to expand the economy, and he has debated nearly every bullish Wall Street strategist. In September 1999, Mr. Tice hosted the New York symposium, "The Credit Bubble and its Aftermath" to alert the media, investors and policy makers about the risks created by the historic expansion of credit. The Symposium was covered by the next day’s front page of the Wall Street Journal. In June 2001, Mr. Tice testified before Congress regarding conflicts of interest of Wall Street and the consequences of capital markets that lack integrity.

Since his role at Federated, Tice currently serves as President of Tice Capital and executive producer and financier of a major motion picture entitled Soul Surfer, released in 2011. He’s also on the Advisory Board of XBullion, a gold-backed secure token and the Vantage Point Australian Macro Fund, a fund designed to make money in an expected Australian mortgage crisis. He’s also been a very active board member and investor in a cybersecurity SaaS company that provides ‘intelligent data’ protection.

DAVID TICE: PRE-BUY THE FILM, BECOME A PATRIOT-PARTNER & HELP PROTECT OUR NATION 

We are in the final stages of finishing a shocking documentary detailing enormous threats to our power grid and the failure at many levels to deal with themThere could come a day when the US power grid shuts down completely. In this cataclysmic scenario, an EMP, cyber-attack, or geomagnetic disturbance (GMD) could shut down our electricity grid for as long as one calendar year or longer. If you thought the recent COVID virus was paralyzing, this dwarfs that incident by 1000-fold. Again, the country is unprepared in the face of great peril but cost-effective solutions currently exist.

The shut-down will render banks, hospitals, water purification plants, phones, and anything that requires electrical power, useless. We have received direct and veiled threats in the last year from the top leaders of each of our adversaries: Iran, North Korea, China & Russia. Additionally, a GMD is overdue as the risk is significant that a solar storm as big as what occurred in the Carrington Event in 1859 could shut down our power grid for an extended time period. NASA suggests that we face a 12% chance per decade of this occurring.

Note ex-General & former Trump advisor John Kelly on EMP:  https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/873452/North-Korea-World-War-3-Donald-Trump-Kim-Jong-un-US-war-news-electromagnetic-pulse-bomb

But there are ways to prevent this event from shutting down our precious electricity, which is actually more important to society than our food supply. It will require a groundswell of the American people to rise up and demand that we address & fix this vulnerability. The American people possess that power, and this dynamic as even mentioned in a 2019 Congressional Roundtable mentioned below.  When the people demand new legislation, restructure executive remedies, and become true Patriots fighting on the ground, we can accomplish this.

Grid Down, Final Warning is the outcome of extensive research by its producers and director. They took it upon themselves to investigate the story and follow the trail, from Washington – to individual states which are battling to implement needed protections – to national conferences and hearings – and papers and interviews of leaders in this field. It apprises us of what we face and what must be done urgently.

As we will show in the film, our grid system is vulnerable to four basic forms of attack – it can be taken down by a few terrorists with AK47’s, cyberattacks, EMPs, and Solar Flares.  There is a belief among many that malware now exists within our power grid component software to accomplish such a catastrophe at an enemy’s timing. So far, protections have not been put into place because of incompetence, vested interests, poor organization, and obstruction occurring by those who oversee and administer the grid’s workings. It is a national tragedy, but one that can be fixed. U.S. Senator Ron Johnson is quoted in February 2019 and his comments reflect the bottom line that now’s the time for action.

To ensure follow-through to accomplish our objective of protecting our power grid, we have an action plan incorporating two initiatives. For all viewers of the film, we’re providing pre-written letters to their appropriate legislator (state and Congressional) urging them to take specific actions. Additionally, from our film proceeds, we will contribute to and help fund 501©(3) party organizations to execute action plans working with legislators & agencies. A pre-set percentage of film proceeds will go towards these patriotic organizations to help ensure we’re successful in protecting our power grid. These organizations are itemized at the end of this document. Conscious actions like these can create a real solution.

This is an important moment in history. What we do and how we face these threats will determine whether we as a society as we know it will literally survive. This is not hyperbole, I promise. It has been estimated by the federally funded EMP Commission, which reported to Congress that in a protracted ‘grid-down’ situation, 75%-90% of Americans would not survive. This film documents leading expert opinions, explains in a clear voice what we’re dealing with and how we got in this predicament, and outlines which action steps we can do to ensure we protect this great nation.

With your contribution, we will be able to enhance this film to an even higher level and pay for strategic social media marketing to ensure it makes the greatest impact. Given the gravity of the message in this film, we believe with some kindling, the fire will spread quickly among the people. Tell your network about us by sharing our message with your Facebook and Linked-In friends. Send them to our website at LightsOutDoc.com. Thank you for your time, contributions, and concern for the future.

This is, quite literally, your chance to help save the country.

A TIME FOR ACTION 

“We have known about the existential threat posed by electromagnetic pulses (EMP) and geomagnetic disturbances (GMD) for decades. Because most people are either unaware of the danger or view these as very low probability events, there has not been sufficient public pressure to take effective action to mitigate these threats. Instead, we establish commissions and study panels, conduct research, and develop plans to develop strategies. It is way past time to stop admiring this problem, and we must actually begin to do something concrete to protect our vulnerable electrical grid, control systems, and the ever-increasing array of electronic devices our society has become dependent upon.”


Senator Ron Johnson, 2/27/19 – Roundtable: Perspectives on Protecting the Power Grid from an EMP or GMD, Senate Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee.
