“Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.”
– Mark Twain
If flapping your lips, pontificating, gesticulating and fault-finding could get you in shape – the United States Congress would be the fittest group of people on earth.
The only exception may be Taiwan, wherein fist fights and brawls are normal. Man, would I like to see a few of them go down in our halloween ghost-infested halls.
The good – or bad news – depending on which story you choose to believe, is no bailout.
Here’s the way to handle yourself during this “crisis.”
A. If you insist upon watching the daily schnews – get out your copy of Combat Conditioning and Combat Abs and workout while you watch. Breathe deeply and focus on the exercises. Let the tee-vee be background snoozic.
B. If you’re unable to train while the poondits are schpeaking, then wait for a commercial. Crack 25 Hindu pushups or 50 Hindu squats every time the ads start rolling.
C. Do not sit passively the entire evening (or day) watching without moving. If you remain passive, you will find this causing an inability to manage money. Truly, you’ll start doing all sorts of crazy things – like loaning money to neighbors who have no intention of paying it back.
D. The key is to focus on magnetizing more money to you while you exercise. Move your body with the exercises I teach – and as you move – picture what you want coming to you.
E. Each day, be sure to read a few sections of my latest book, 101 Ways to Magnetize Money. As you read you’ll de-stress, de-compress and begin to focus on all the good that you can do. It’ll rid you of that helpless, hapless feeling the schnews enjoys injecting into your mind and body.
That’s my formula for surviving what the politicos are doing to us.
Use it – get healthier – and prosper.

The term “animal magnetism” is not as common today as it was years ago. Part of the reason may have to do with some humans objecting to being associated with animals.
Well, as Mark Twain said so many years ago in his notebook: “Concerning the difference between man and the jackass: some observers hold that there isn’t any. But this wrongs the jackass.”
In Chinese martial arts, the human who is wise, studies the animals and learns to move according to what he sees. Whether it’s a monkey, tiger, crane, snake, deer or dog – the martial artist realizes that
he can take his human abilities to an entirely different plane by copying postures, movements and breathing patterns.
Take the cat, for example. And it doesn’t really matter what type of cat we’re talking about. It rests and meditates most of the day. It sits around staring straight ahead – doing nothing.
This alone is instructional. If the human being will take 15-30 minutes out of his day to sit quietly and breathe, he’d be far better off. Others would notice that something about him has changed. The face looks different. Even the eyes are not the same.
The next step.
If the human being then takes note of the way the cat stretches his entire body in one full swoop – and imitates this – he will feel a tidal wave of energy pour into his body and wake him up. If he imitates the cat often, as in every single day – his entire body will change – including his nervous system. Instead of flying off the pan handle every time something happens, the human will go through the day with a sense of calm and confidence.
And this calm confidence can be felt by others. Some people call it dynamism. Others call it charisma. And some refer to it as… animal magnetism.
In short, when you train your body with exercises and movements that are similar to those used habitually by animals in the wild, you become more attractive. Not just in a seksual way either. You become more attractive in ALL areas of your life.
The above represents yet another reason why the exercises in Combat Conditioning are so powerful. The Hindu pushup alone, mirrors the cat-like movement I mentioned. Do it everyday and you will FEEL the difference. So will others.
They’ll see it, too.
So order Combat Conditioning today. Make the leap from human to super human.
Better yet, get the book and several other goodies at no charge by giving the Matt Furey Inner Circle a test drive. Get the details here.

Who am I, really.
Well, yesterday, Lisa F. told me who SHE thinks I am in mostly uncertain words. Here’s the email:
“You’re an idiot. I want off your mailing list, because I end up deleting everything you send without reading it. I thought it would be useful to be on your mailing list, but all the drivel you put out every day is useless. I repeat – you’re an idiot.”
MJF: Thank you, Lisa. You are right. I AM an IDIOT.
Now, earlier today another woman, Kathy, gave me a second opinion. While ordering my new book – 101 Ways to Magnetize Money she wrote the following comment about where she heard about me:
Where From: email from Matt, who is really Eddie Baran
MJF: Kathy, glad to finally be recognized for who I am. Thanks.
As a young buck I remember reading the book, Cosell by Howard Cosell.
From memory, on the back cover he wrote something like: I’ve been called pompous, arrogant, an idiot, a genius, a jerk, a breath of fresh air … and so on. Then he writes, and again, I may be off a bit here: “You’re right. I AM ALL of these things.”
Such is my feeling about those who write to praise me or ridicule me. Either way, you are right. And it’s good to be right.
This leads to the point I want to make. It’s a point I’ve made numerous times before – and I never tire of saying it. Even so, today I’ll say it in more colorful language:
Your opinion of me ain’t none of my doggone business. Just as in politics, if 51 percent of the people on my list approve of me and what I do – well then, let’s call it a landslide.
And being that about half the people who receive my daily discharges are customers – I must be doing something right – even with the occasional (or frequent) error. So thanks for your love, support, hate, disgust or neutrality. In the end it’s probably all the same anyway. Just people being people.
Oh, by the way – I’m not sure where someone would get this idea – but after reading yesterday’s email – some thought I was anti-McCain, pro-Obama – others thought I was anti-Obama and pro-McCain. And some were even concerned that I like or don’t like Bush or Bill Clinton.
Amazing. The same email read thousands of different ways. Mass communication quickly becomes mass interpretation.
This is, in part, one of the reasons why I tell my students, when I’m talking or when you’re reading what I’m writing, the best thing you can do is pay attention to your breathing.
Have you been doing that. If not, start doing so NOW and your life will begin to shift in a positive direction. After all, your breath is your POWER.
Another reader got prissed off – and yes I spelled it rong on porpoise – because I mentioned “numbers” in yesterday’s email. How dare I think that numbers have any thing to do with anything that goes on in the Universe – E = mc2, H2O, CO2 – 9 innings, 9 supreme court judges, 9 months inside a mother’s womb …etc.
Another reader questioned my religious beliefs, wanted to know why I talk about evil things like “chi” and so on. He asked if I believe in Jesus. I said, “Yes. He had greater chi flow than anyone who has ever lived. He used it to heal – and still does.”
I think my answer put the man in the looney bin. It was too much for him to handle. He expected me to be Beelzebub and I ruined his day.
My God, “chi” being evil. What is the world coming to. Chi is energy – plain and simple. Some have more than others. Some have a magnificent supply.
If I say that someone is “magnetic” – is that evil, too.
Funny how some people think: Man is evil. Nature is bad. Energy is scary. Words are dangerous. Numbers are negative. And if that ain’t bad enough – the world and everyone in it is going to H-E double ‘L.’
As the Chinese say, “Aiii yaaa.”
To conclude this idiotic email, if you still respect yourself enough to get your body in kick-butt condition, to increase your chi flow and make Jesus or whomever you consider your personal savior
to smile upon what you’ve done with the tools and talents you were given – then by all means, begin again with my international best-seller Combat Conditioning and Combat Abs.
P.S. To view even more idiotic Furey moments, make sure you watch the two-minute video clip on my homepage.
In viewing this video you will quickly see that I am an idiot, par excelence.

As you’re probably aware of by now, today is the day that Senator John McCain is back on Capitol HIll – presumably to “fix” our nation’s broken economy.
Hold the phone a minute.
Let’s ponder the question no one is asking: How does a government that is already a gadzillion dollars in debt “fix” the economy.
Think of this. If my business was a gadziillion dollars in debt, would you ask me for a loan. Would you ask me how
to improve my financial situation. Would you allow me to “fix” things for you.
Yet, millions of Americans place their hopes in politicians and the Washington elite – most of whom have NEVER owned or operated a business – to ride to the rescue… to save the day…
Well, I got news for you. A band-aid on a cancerous tumor doesn’t make it go away. It may make you FEEL like things have changed – but your feelings may be dead wrong.
Yet, while all the finagling is going on in Washington to save our economy – there is a clandestine group of men and women who really don’t worry about which way the economic winds blow. Why. Because no matter what – they are going to “find a way” to profit from it.
This group of very private people never feels beaten down or punished by economic times. They never feel that politicians will save them or the day.
Instead, they look into a crystal monitor and view the future.
And once they see it – they invest in it. Even when things look bleaker than black.
Take my wife, Zhannie, for example. Not long ago I got her a course that teaches a little-known method for beating Wall Street in their own game.
I got Zhannie this course because I wanted her to be involved in a “sideline” activity that I had no say or involvement in; something where she could earn a ton of dough on her own.
Well, here’s what happened: Despite a bit of a language barrier and being TOTALLY NEW to this sort of venture – Zhannie learned the system being taught – a system that is NOT at all like the tired and worn idea of buying stocks or mutual funds.
It’s very different. It’s a little known secret called ‘credit spread trading.’ And it works no matter what the economic woes.
Even though Zhannie is new to this game – last week we looked at her results. Her current success rate is 94%. Off the charts.
Yesterday Zhannie showed me a few of her buys. Per her coach’s advice – she and several other friends bought Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae – which are supposed to get bailed out here real soon by el presidente and el senator.
Imagine buying these trades at .30 cents – and now they’re over $2.00 a share. If you can imagine this scenario – you now know why Zhannie is smiling from ear to ear – regardless of the economy.
In fact, she knows how to make a bundle of dough even when everyone else is crying, weeping and gnashing their teeth. And I am doggone proud to be her witness.
I am also proud to know several other people that are flying beneath the radar -and every single one of them raves about the advice her coach, Jeffrey Ziegler, gives to those who have his course.
So today, I’m presenting you with my 102nd Way to Magnetize Money. I cover 101 in my book – yet here’s another way – and it is MEGA powerful.
That’s why I am 100% confident when I look you in the eyes and say, “Drop everything you are doing right now and invest in “the course” that my wife and friends swear by. It’s making them a fortune – even in very turbulent times.
Go here and get started today.
P.S. Previously I’ve told you that the number ‘8’ is a symbol of wealth, fame, power and prosperity in China. In the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, the opening ceremonies began on 08-08-08 at 8:08:08 PM. These Olympics were the MOST watched and most profitable EVER. Well, today is an ‘8’ day.
Take the numbers for today and add them. 9+2+5=2+0+0+8 = 26. Then add 2+6 to arrive at today’s ultimate number: 8.
This means that today is THE day to make a dramatic move for the better. Today is THE day to say “YES” to greater prosperity and abundance. Go here and order NOW.

Because we’re surrounded with the stories of top amateur professional athletes – and how they train for hours per day, when some people here that they can get fit in 15 minutes per day, they tend to have doubts.
Tis only natural, especially when you’ve spent several years on the couch or plopped on el gluteus maximus before the computer.
Well, I got news for y’all. When you first begin doing Combat Conditioning, for ‘most’ people – 15 minutes is about 10 minutes too long.
How can I say such a thing.
Because of these facts:
Most people cannot do 25 Hindu Pushups in one full set – and even doing one set of this exercise is enough for a beginner.
Most people cannot do more than 40 Hindu squats the first time they try. This set will take about 1-1.5 minutes, max, depending on your balance.
Then there’s the bridge. Most first timers cannot hold for 30 seconds.
So altogether, we’re looking at about 4-5 minutes of training – and the beginner is wiped out – in a good way.
The better news is that the 4 or 5 minutes improves rather quickly and becomes 10-15 minutes. If you choose to go beyond 15 minutes – to let’s say, 30 minutes, that’s fine. But unless your workout time involves a lot of deep breathing, stretching and pauses between sets, you don’t need more than 30 minutes.
You really, really can get into great, great shape with these exercises, and yes – 15 minutes will do wonders. In fact, 5 minutes will do wonders for the person who is just getting started. Even a minute will do wonders if you’re that far gone.
Time to return to the real YOU – my friend. Get on the stick today – or sit back and let LIFE give you the stick.
That’s right. You either take control and rid yourself of the beast inside your body – or the beast will continue to pound on your in a big way. Your body wears out from LACK of use. Remember that. And LACK of use causes your body pain.
So get in there and go.
Kick butt – take names,
P.S. There are 48 different exercises in Combat Conditioning as well as seven great training programs to follow. Although I have only mentioned the Royal Court in this email (Hindu pushups, Hindu squats and bridging), you can literally build a kick-butt workout around virtually any three exercises in the course. Go here and get started now.
P.P.S. Btw, if you really want to kick some major booty this year, and I mean literally, consider becoming part of the Matt Furey Inner Circle – that extraordinary group of DOERS who are getting the last laugh in this game of LIFE. Come join them by going to here.

“The last person you want to visit is the orthopedic surgeon. You go see the surgeon and he’s going to
find something to cut. That’s how he makes his living.”
The above is what I came to believe as a college wrestler, and afterward, as a martial artist.
Shortly after college I hurt my knee. It swelled to the point that I couldn’t put my pants on. Reluctantly,
I only went to the surgeon when the knee got infected.
After draining it he suggested surgery to remove my bursa sac. I got a second opinion. Second doctor gave first opinion. “You need surgery,” he says.
I figured a way to work around it and never had it done. Today I’m grateful.
The fact is that far too many people opt for knee surgery when there is a better way to restore your function.
So imagine my delight when I met up with Dr. Bill Stillwell, an orthopedic surgeon who did NOT operate on over 90% of his patients. Not only that, he wrote text books for surgeons, detailing what to do and what not to do.
He practiced in Long Island for many years, then retired. And now he’s come up with an incredible course that will teach you how to avoid knee surgery – just like I did.
If you choose to do as I did and refuse the surgery – you better have a back up plan on what to do to restore full function to your knee. Otherwise the surgeon will get your knee on his table. And it’s going to be a bloody, painful mess.
Make sure you pick up a copy of Dr. Bill’s latest classic – even if your knee isn’t ailing you right now. If it ever is, you’ll want to be armed and ready.
And if your knee is bothering you and you’ve been told you need the surgeon’s scalpel, what if there was a 90% chance you could refuse it and come out ahead. Sounds like a gamble worth taking, eh.
Get Dr. Bill’s How to Avoid Knee Surgery NOW. Go to and place your order.

If you’re over the age of 40, you probably remember walking to school, playing ball with friends in the
outdoors, mowing the lawn, raking leaves, shoveling snow – and so on.
Today, your activity level may not represent anything close to what it was way back when. And if that’s the case, your body and mind are suffering because of it.
At the same time, if you are very active – there are inherent dangers involved as well. For example, if
you train very hard but don’t take in adequate water – you can do serious harm to your body. There are
many who believe the early signs of senility and Alzheimers are connected to your kidneys being weakened from dehydration.
Yet, lack of water is NOT the only reason for your kidneys to get weaker.
A few years ago I met an anti-aging physician who regularly pounds the pavement. He probably does at least five miles per day. He’s lean – but not healthy looking.
When I shook his hand I noted that his palms were cold. And this was in hot, humid Florida. How can your palms be cold when you’re supposedly getting ample blood circulation from cardiovascular exercise – as well as “the perfect diet.” How can your hands be cold when you have very low body fat.
A good acupuncturist could instantly tell you why. Despite all the exercise, your internal organs are
not functioning properly. Why. Because you’re burning them out. Instead of your body being more balanced after exercise – you’re more out of balance.
I see this all the time with people who do long distance training – as well as a lot of heavy weight training. The muscles get worked but the organs often grow weaker. The body is constantly pumping
adrenaline to meet goals, deadlines and heavy duty workouts – and it’s rebelling in a big way. Yet you
continue to ignore the signs – or you may not even know what the signs are.
When you’re constantly demanding more and more from yourself, your kidneys and adrenals can get out of whack very easily.
And it’s not from dehydration. It’s from doing too much yang exercise or work – too much vigorous heavy exertion training – with no yin – lighter exercise to balance out your system.
If you exert yourself with great vigor in any way during the day, either through exercise or labor in the office – you absolutely are in danger of being out of balance if you don’t do something to recharge your system.
This is precisely why I recommend the Chinese Long-Life System and Dao Zou programs. They help restore your system to a state of balance. They help revive and invigorate you. They do not beat you up worse than you already are. They open up the meridians of the body, providing greater chi flow to your entire system.
As I frequently say, you may think your muscles control the strength and health of your body – but you’d be wrong. Anyone with a kidney stone, a ruptured spleen, a bleeding stomach, an intestinal virus or a weak heart can tell you – when a single organ is off – you don’t have much power in you.
Because of these truths, I cannot over-encourage you to turn back the clock by exercising in kinder, gentler ways.
Yes, vigorous training has its place and I’m in favor of it – but many people need to build up their organs and increase chi flow MORE than they need to strengthen their muscles.
That’s why I wholeheartedly recommend the Chinese products that I went to great lengths to bring back to America.
Currently you can grab both of these programs for half off here.
Do the CLLS program in the a.m. to get your day started with a bang. Then end the day with Dao Zou – wherein you rewind your mind and eliminate all the stress from your day.
And if you’re looking for MORE vigorous training with a focus on mind-body harmony, be sure to get my best- selling Combat Conditioning program – now in over 150 countries – and counting.
That’s all for now. Tomorrow I begin Day One of a 4-day seminar. I’ll be back Monday with more – unless i decide to give you an update before then.

The Japan Sumo Association just held its first ever drug test. They decided to do this after a Russian sumo wrestler was arrested last month for possession of marijuana.
And guess who got nailed in the drug test.
Two more Russians. Namely, brothers “Roho” (Boradzov Feliksovich) and “Hakurozanb” (Baradzov Feliksovich).
Now, I didn’t administer the drug test – but this Fure-cat tends to think one of two things about this situation:
1. The Russians were set up because of nationalists who don’t want their sacred sport corrupted anymore with GaiJin blood
2. The Russians just don’t get it that there are many ways to celebrate in Japan – all of which are limited to being drunk on sake.
I, myself, have tasted sake a couple times, and believe me, it’s nothing to write home about. The same can be said of eating raw squid, octopus and horse meat.
So maybe this is a third reason for the Russians using weed. If I had to live on what they may be forced to eat each day, I may reach for something much stronger, too.
But being I am not subjected to sushi, sashimi and sake – I prefer to get high on life itself. From deep breathing and exercises that open the meridians and promote greater chi flow.
By the way, one good reason (among many) NOT to use marijuana is that it reverses the flow of chi in your meridians. Not a good thing, me thinks.
When your meridians are open, disease and sickness leave you alone. So do the pangs of old age, weakness and lethargy. So it’s a good idea to follow exercise programs that open you up rather than close you down.
Two of my favorites, both of which come from China, where they don’t have any dope smoking sumo rasslers, are the Chinese Long-Life System and Dao Zou.
Many people wonder what the difference is between the two programs, as both of them lead to greater health and longevity.
First, the Chinese Long-Life System emphasizes pressure to various acupuncture points. In fact, there are three that, if massaged each day, can dramatically improve your health.
Second, in Chinese Long-Life System, you are given a few dozen different exercises that hit every muscle in your body from head to toe.
In Dao Zou, the objective is to rewind your mind, reduce stress and improve balance through reverse training. When you train in reverse you improve the functioning of your kidneys – and many of today’s diseases: senility, Alzheimers, osteoporosis, sexual dysfunction, weakness in the knees, and so on – are due, in part, to weakening kidneys.
I realize in America you won’t hear what I’m saying from too many M.D.’s. But if you were to speak with an acupuncturist or doctor of Chinese medicine – you’d find him agreeing on what I say.
The kidneys are virtually ignored in western society. We think of the heart and occasionally the lungs – but the kidneys are HUGE in Chinese medicine. And when they weaken the rest of the body, including the heart and lungs, start to weaken as well.
When you do Dao Zou, your kidneys strengthen which will then show in greater leg strength, a calmer mind and a better memory. Your kidneys control short-term memory – your heart long term memory. This, in part, is why those with senility and beginning stages of Alzheimers have no trouble remembering what they did 50 years ago – they just cannot recall what you said a minute ago.
As your kidneys get stronger, the overflow of chi moves to your heart – and your heart regulates, among many other things, the strength of your long-term memory. So don’t be surprised if you begin to remember things from your past that happened a long, long time ago – if you’re doing the Dao Zou program.
I know someone who suddenly began recalling his birth while doing Dao Zou. This may sound far fetched to you now, but it won’t be if you do the training.
A good regiment is to do the Chinese Long-Life System program in the a.m. – along with some of the Royal Court from Combat Conditioning. Then end your day with Dao Zou.
All of these programs are currently being offered at half- off here.
Jump in and get the programs that truly make you healthy and vitally alive.
