    I got same shit to deal with in LA and wage theft. Threats , being told be be good and quiet, wage violence by cutting pay. Dirty world. It’s connected at the top , they’re all friends and trade information pre-ipo. Thats what keeps SF paying FBI to visit people to shut up. Same thing in LA - Beverly Hills cops will ride by your home , outside their jurisdiction , if you’re suspected of talking about wage theft. Unfortunately , people out here consent to having their pockets molested long as what they get is enough . Though , it’s never the full legal pay. Then you got to deal with corporate people acting gangster talking about killing you , threatening to sue you for anything cuz they have the top lawyers in Los Angeles , etc. sigh. A lot of money at the top and friends - it’s how things work. He’s the .00003% that refuses to be fucked so the outlier get erased. People in control know the populace I amoral and consensual as long as their lives are stable. Bully’s with paper , policy , money and guns. Serial fraudsters / wage thieves is the right name. God Bless Human Rights - no ones untouchable .

    Update on my request to delist MIMEDX GROUP INC. from Frankfurt and Berlin stock exchanges: - Berlin suspended trading as of today, confirmed by Dieter Weigl (Head of Market Surveillance for Berlin Boerse) - No feedback so far from Frankfurt I will try to put a bit of peer pressure on Frankfurt today @Marc C.: I understand the psychological and physical stress required to unfold such frauds, especially when the company can leverage a strong network of corruptible people in power positions. And I understand your desire to "retire" when you are done with MDXG, but I hope you will still notify the public and provide suggestions when you see such frauds in the future to give the possibility to other honest people and other independent short sellers to take the charge in these battles. And I hope you will continue to inspire new generations as you did at Harvard. Your experience and your moral attitude are assets that can create return for the society for a long time and it would be a pity to lose them.

    Having been a Problem Solver all my life I have always lived by a Rule which is simply this—sometimes a Problem that can’t be solved simply needs to be placed in the hands of a stronger problem solver with specific skills as to the particular problem. Aaron Sorkin is the guy for this....don’t know what he’s working on right now, but when he gets some free time this has all the makings of “The Big Short” or a mini Madoff documentary. It looks like Marc has done about all he can with this and perhaps a really good investigative Journalist with a reputation like Sorkin’s might just be the ticket. I’d love to see how Aaron “casts” the players if he decides to get involved. And Marc, if Arron runs with this I’m sure he will pay you enough to cover your taxes on covering your short!

    Another masterpiece Grant! Spectacular interview! 149 minutes went by like 149 seconds. This interview was very special to me because I am both an investor and a former regulatory investigator (State - not Federal). People often ask, how can these agencies (SEC, FDA, VA, et al) ignore such blatant misconduct? The answer wasn't clear to me until I worked for State government. These so-called consumer protection agencies are typically funded (translation: controlled) by the entities they regulate through license fees, fines, transaction fees, membership fees, etc. Any substantive enforcement is immediately met with industry cries to the politicians who appoint the agency heads (who in turn hire the staffers). It is precisely the formula for the disaster we have. If these agencies are to be anything more than industry lapdogs, they need significant independence both financially and politically (more akin to the judiciary). This situation with Marc Cohodes, MiMedx, and the SEC/VA/FDA/FBI etc. should be used as the poster child to justify completely upending regulatory oversight in the US at both the State and Federal level. I left my job with the State and returned to the private sector because it was obvious to me after several years that I was pissing in the wind. I referred case after case after case for prosecution just to see an endless stream of paltry fines and wrist slaps. Even in the most egregious cases, it was rare to see anything done that might result in political ire or that might impair the stream of fees that funded the agency. MiMedx is just one of thousands of examples that could be compiled and used to justify fixing this nonsense (there is an investigative piece for RV). I would love to see Marc as the head of SEC Enforcement, but I can tell you that by itself it would not be enough. The problem is far more systemic and large than one person. I would just say to anyone who watched this interview - if you think MiMedx is an isolated case, it's not. It's the norm and not the exception. Thankfully we have short sellers like Marc policing the markets because the government agencies certainly won't. Look no further than the TSLA $420 tweet. How can something that blatant not result in criminal prosecution, yet it doesn't. Thanks again RV for doing this piece.

      "People often ask, how can these agencies (SEC, FDA, VA, et al) ignore such blatant misconduct? The answer wasn't clear to me until I worked for State government." I think another major contributor is lack of funding and Congressional appropriations. If Congress says you can't spend money to investigate X, the Agencies can't investigate it. I also think the regulatory agencies are set up to regulate based on the assumption that industry participants are trying to be in compliance. Cases of fraud go undetected because Agencies don't assume fraud to be the base case.

      @ Evan W. There was certainly a funding problem at my agency, but the far bigger problem was the type of cronyism that Marc Cohodes encountered. Yes, we needed more people, but we could have hired an army and it wouldn't have mattered because one phone call to a politician was about all that was required to file an investigation with plenty of evidence of wrongdoing in the wrist slap file. This typically happened with the attorneys who could be fired at will by the agency heads beholden to the politicians (hence my comment about the desperate need for autonomy). I believe the rampant cronyism that has infected most parts of government is the reason why someone like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or Bernie Sanders can be elected. Their ideas are very dangerous and gaining popularity. The elites need to clean-up their mess while they still can. The only thing worse than crony capitalism is crony socialism, but it's coming as sure as the sun will rise if the elites refuse to knock this crap off and clean-up their mess.

    As became evident when Madoff’s fraud was uncovered, the SEC was asleep at the wheel, a decade later it seems it is not only the SEC, but the DOJ, the FDA... want more evidence that the system is broken? When the guys supposed to police it can’t even follow the homework handed to them on a silver plate.... How much different is the US from Russia really? The only difference is that in the US corruption is legal (lobbying), the modus operandi might be a bit different (less bloody in the west but equally crooked) but the wild west is not so different from the wild east.... The consequences of this greed are in the first innings sadly, populism, increased tax rates and a huge shift to the left in years to come.

    Side note to the mentioning of documents/information received via Twitter/E-Mail around 0:58:50: With that much fraud and misuse of power involved, be very careful with these e-mail attachments or web links that you receive from unknown *and* known sources. I wouldn't be surprised if someone already tried to infect your systems with spyware. A few recommendations: - Don't trust your favorite antivirus software to pick up such attacks - not going to happen. - Update all your systems and the most attacked applications such as IE, Firefox, Adobe Flash, Java, Adobe Reader etc. - If you use Windows as the client OS, make sure it is Windows 10. - In Windows 10, enable all the sub settings under "Exploit Protection" for each client application manually. - If you use Windows OS, install Microsoft's "Process Explorer" and enable the scanning of all running processes with (see for an explaination). - If you use macOS, a tool named LittleSnitch might help you to identify suspicious Internet connections. - Don't open any MS Office Files that have Macro contents (you could submit suspicious files to one of the many readily available sandbox systems like, or They can identify if a file tries to load and execute additional code, but be careful, the files are shared within the security community and sometimes cyber criminals as well). - Check suspicious URLs with the mentioned sandbox / security scanning engines above. - Ideally, open all files or URLs from unknown sources inside a sand-boxed system, e.g. a Windows OS running inside VirtualBox, VMWare etc. or from a separated system with no access to the other systems in the network - including the printer! - Let a cyber security specialist check your systems and network for malicious activity. This site contains additional information: This might sound like something out of a James Bond movie, but these kind of attacks are relatively cheap, very successful and with a low probability of getting caught.

      I would add to use a separate laptop to browse the internet with one or more ad hoc email accounts created for specific purpose only and without ever ever log in to a personal account from that laptop or store personal files in that laptop. If the laptop get infected they can't get to your personal staff and you can wipe it out and start from scratch again without incurring the pain to do it on your own personal laptop And in general on every laptop personal or not, I would suggest to block as many website tracking and redirects as possible from host file. This is a good start:, you just need to copy paste it in your host file (here some instruction: Closing, if someone wants to get very sophysticated with privacy you may want to read "The Art of Invisibility" of Kevin Mitnick for a good overview on all topics related to your pesonal privacy

      To make it at least as hard as possible for the "bad guys" to infect a computer/smartphone with spyware, use a system that you can reset every single time after you opened a document or an URL. That system ideally runs on top of another OS, e.g. VirtualBox installed on a Linux system (Host OS) that runs Windows inside VirtualBox (the guest OS). VirtualBox is a readily available sandbox solution for Windows, Linux and macOS. You can then create a so-called Snapshot of the guest operation system with VirtualBox, work with the downloaded files inside the guest OS, copy the contents to a normal text editor, move that text file to the Host OS (or print it) and afterwards reset the state of the guest OS to the original, clean state. It is of course possible to exploit a vulnerability inside VirtualBox and escape the sandbox, allowing the execution of arbitrary code on the underlying Host OS. But if you choose a different Host OS than the guest OS, it becomes harder for the attackers. Additionally, use that system only for that particular case, separate it from any other system in the internal network (use a separate, stand alone printer for that system) and make sure that it is located in a room where nothing important is being discussed. Don't use thump drives between secure and insecure systems and only use websites over SSL (HTTPS://). Don't forget: If you store or receive the files via cloud services, the "authorities" already have them. If you want a ball park figure for an undisclosed vulnerability that can be used to infect a computer system or smartphone, here is a price list of a vulnerability broker that sells these vulnerabilities to "authorities": Hope some of it helps.

      @Mark: I fully agree that any encryption is better than none, but make no mistake: Attackers with limited resources don't attack the strongest link in the chain, they rather go after your devices. By infecting a computer or smartphone with malicious code, they couldn't care less about strong encryption. As soon as you open that encrypted e-mail, file or blueprint on your device, they make screenshots or record what is being discussed in the meeting. That's the reason why the black market focuses more on security vulnerabilities in applications and operating systems rather than on bugs in encryption implementations. It is way cheaper. Therefore it is paramount to keep your devices secure too, but there will always be exploitable vulnerabilities. So at least make it as hard as possible for the bad guys. They have to bring their A-game as well.

    As a recent subscriber and seeing the last interview of Marc with Grant last year, this was VERY MOVING. I live in Georgia and will tell you that Johnny Isakson and Tom Price entanglement in the corruption of MiMedx has been under the radar at least I was not aware of it in my neck of the woods. Perhaps the larger question to ask is we as a society in the US have been complicit to bribery and corruption on the grandest scales where the Central Banks are in cahoots with the politicians and the financial industry. I am by no means a conspiracy theorist but this story speaks volumes on what has given rise to the populism movement. This story needs airplay in the mainstream media such as CNN, Fox News, 60 Minutes, etc. to fully get the message out so the public can start learning the truth. Great job with your interview Grant, I really appreciate your sincerity and tact when you ask those hard hitting soul wrenching questions.

      One of my goals going forward is to debunk the negative connotation of 'conspiracy theorist'. The corruption in society is so vast, that to not recognize the criminal conspiracy has become detrimental to ones health. The very term 'conspiracy theorist' was developed by the CIA to dissuade people from venturing anywhere near the black hole of corruption. It has worked very well, such is the magic of words. Conspiracies are real, they exist, and in fact are paramount to the story of our world.

      These are complicated situations involving multiple interconnected systems. The vast majority of the public is not able to grasp the whole interconnected mess because you must first have a basic understanding of the individual systems. Too hard. This speaks to the "Real Vision" mission - making the information available. Real Vision is certainly making a difference through the financial education process. Gotta love what Real Vision has accomplished in such a short time. Now we just need to figure out how to extend the public attention span ....

    This is a great conversation. But, this is not about investing. There are so many emotions in this story - investing is supposed to be devoid of emotions. Besides, I just can't imagine getting all wrapped up in one company for whatever reasons. This is a story about social good and activism.

      You cannot invest well or responsibly if you don't understand the financial system and it's governance. This has everything to do with investing - especially if you are investing other peoples money. Corporate usurpation of government and deliberate cheating of shareholders is an on-going problem and is at the root of financial crises. I believe that understanding the macro, micro and local/individual frameworks (in that order) forms the best decision making process. This falls squarely within the macro and micro envelopes.

    I'd bet most of the RV TV subscribers have a few stock symbols they'd like to present to Marc Cohodes hoping for his attention and investigation. Last Administration preached "change", we got it alright and it sucks! So much regulation and NO enforcement across the entire landscape. Politicians exempt for the laws we have to adhere to is the perfect storm for fraud. No wonder the Deep State wants Trump out----they're scared to death of exposure. Three things can't be hidden forever---the Sun, the Moon and the Truth. Greatest trick the Devil ever pulled, was convincing everyone he doesn't exist. Government Agencies are a feel good, we got your back bunch of shite, rigging the American confidence game. Hell, even the NFL playoff games appeared to be handing out some dirty business. Love the amazing comments herein, Grant's quiet all ears demeanor while Mr. Cohodes spoke and the depth of discussion. Can't wait to hear more. Just Terrific!

    THIS MUST BE RELEASED to the public! There are times when NAMES must be NAMED, and shamed in the public eye. We have watched our once great, proud nation be corrupted by Government officials, and Corporate leaders, Attorneys, Bankers, Lobbyists, etc......Marc would not use anyone’s name unless he was confident that they are dirty, and deserved of the punishment that is coming their way. THANK YOU MARC for naming them! We have incentivized disgusting behavior for too long, and it’s time for responsible individuals to be put in JAIL, where they belong! As Charlie Munger has me the incentive, and I’ll show you the crime. I am confident that the majority of workers in the FBI, DOJ, VA, SEC are decent humans......but the Leadership of each of our institutions are dirty as hell, and the system needs to be purged. The only way to change the system is to punish those involved......SENATORS INCLUDED! There are many government leaders, past and present, that deserve to wear orange jumpsuits. Marc, you have the resolve of a pit bull, and I couldn’t be more proud of the fight you have undertaken....and for those that can’t handle the truth, the hell with them. There is nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come....and its time again to remind ourselves that right and wrong is not an opinion. It’s black and white. I stand for INTEGRITY, and I stand with you in this battle of right vs wrong. Stay strong, and don’t let go of these bastards! As a FA/RIA for almost 30 years, I would be proud if you were in charge of the SEC, and I would welcome you as my new boss. Milton, thank you for having the guts to publish this masterpiece.......the MSM is too corrupt and weak to publish anything this important. BRAVO!

    I searched the FDA inspection database ( and all I see are NAI and VAI (voluntary action indicated) inspection results. Their most recent inspection, 9/26/18, was NAI (no action indicated). I haven't found the 483 yet, but I can't imagine the findings were earth shatteringly bad since MiMedx did not receive an OAI (official action indicated). As far as I am aware, if a company gets a VAI, they are not required to respond to the 483 within 15 days.

      There is plenty of evidence and many stories of the FDA being captured by the drug companies and food lobbies. Ditto the CDC. The FDA didn't act on Theranos until a journo had done all the hard work and been through hell to expose it and it was undeniable. Still Blondie has got off lightly, and her distinguished board has walked away even more shamelessly than Jon Corzine did. Similarly the SEC was handed the Madoff fraud on a plate, repeatedly, and did nothing. Instead of dissolving these captured regulators, Congress concludes they need more money, which they use to hire more of the industry people they should be nailing.

      It is my belief that the only reason they came down on Theranos is because a Walton and I think some other 1%'ers had invested in it. Lesson there is 'justice' only happens if a 1%'er is harmed, otherwise, piss on the rest of us.

    Full disclosure: I have been following Marc on Twitter since 2016 and have been short MDXG since early 2018. I thank Marc for making me money. Fascinating story. Marc is a very interesting character. Will be a book and a movie one day. Great. Here is what troubles me: not Marc and what he has said and done. I am NOT talking about the stock price here. He is a private individual and has the right to say whatever he wants. I am sure he is 100% honest. If he is wrong, he will answer for it. I have no reason to believe he is wrong. Quite the opposite. RealVision bothers me. You have crossed a line. Very publicly and you seem proud of it: you have named names. From a US Senator on down. That you named Isakson bothers me not at all. He is a very big beast and he can take care of himself. But you named a whole load of people all the way down to a lowly secretary. And tarnished them. Did you ask them to comment before you published? These people are effectively defenseless. In a digital age when allegations will remain unchallenged on a search engine forever, that is pretty much unforgivable. And there was absolutely no need not to edit those names out. It would have detracted nothing from the plot or the story. In conclusion: the story is great, needed to be told but you need to introduce some robust editorial policies now that you seem to have decided to go from discussing financial matters to involving individuals and their alleged behavior in your videos.

      3 February 2019 @ 06:16
      You mean the lowly secretary that created a twitter account to bait Marc and knew about the Fed visit before anyone else knew about it ? The whole point Marc makes, is that if you are complicit in these frauds then expect to be treated the same way as everyone else.
    • NG
      Nick G.
      3 February 2019 @ 12:01
      You completely miss my point. I am sure a lowly secretary gives a shit about Marc and his battle (this is called sarcasm). Loads of possibilities: Marc could be lying (no reason to think so, but it is possible), she could have been forced to do it to feed her kids, it could not have been her at all but someone misusing her identity. And that is the point: you don't know, I don't know, no one "knows"! That is why you always should ask for comment from the other party before publishing something like this. Just like Marc rightly complains about receiving a visit from the FBI for no legal reason that anyone can see, so she should not be subject to harassment without proof or an opportunity to state her case. While we were discussing charts and how far TLT would or would not go, RealVision did not need journalistic editorial standards. Now it does.

    This video was great. RealVision should put this video on a thumb drive and send to the Senate and House Ethics Committees and the FBI Director. The good senator from GA needs to go, and the FBI agents who visited Mark's house need to be fired for cause. Better yet, this needs a wider audience. Maybe reach out to ABC (20/20) or NBC (Dateline) and edit this down to a 60 minute show. That would increase the pressure on the current management that is running this fraud, and will also raise the pressure on the FDA, FBI, SEC to do their jobs.

Congress/Government is nothing more than a good ole boy no surprise that the FDA's, SEC's etc ignore valid evidence of fraud. It is the capitalist system of greed and win at all costs. Real this just the tip of the iceberg that is conveniently overlooked because of good ole boy politics and influence. It is clearly evident that MC took a major personal hit and he is a rare breed to see it through to the end. It's a matter of principle which the good ole boys have none to pass around.

    Marc, If the SEC Chairman spot isn't available, you can always move up to BananaCanada. Here, the regulation infrastructure is even more prone to manipulative and deceptive behavior. Each province and territory has its own regulatory body, which means 13 regulatory bodies with no money and few people at the whim of local political power. I would suggest BC for a start

    Excellent is insufficient to describe the two Cohodes interviews. Marc Cohodes is authentic and one of a kind. What makes me very happy is the apparent love and support Aurora, Max and Marc give to each other. In addition, Mark has and cares for many friends. It is unusual for someone with such drive and determination to also be a great human being. All the best to the Cohodes family. DLS

    Wow, I’ve tried to follow as it plays out, but this was very enlightening. I had no idea how deep this went. Amazing these shares are still approved for public consumption. Marc you are truly a Hero. The world needs more men who will do what’s right, even when faced with difficult odds, for the good of more than just themselves. Way to set the example. I don’t know how you walk around that farm with balls as big as yours.

    This absolutely needs to be made free as a matter of public service. Under the assumption that this is all true, I am quite frankly disgusted, though no longer surprised, that something this big could be going on and is covered. PP & Co are one thing, they're just particularly egregious conmen ultimately, and will be remembered as such. The impunity which they appear to enjoy, and the inertia of the administrations which are charged with protecting the population, on the other hand, does make one wonder, have things really become that rotten? If so, how high does this actually go? Marc, thank you very much for exposing this. Your close ones also deserve our heartfelt thanks.

    This is so important and I really hope Marc's message gets out so that others can follow his example. While democracies are built on the rule of law, they can not operate without leaders of high character and ethics. As Marc illustrates many times over, laws can be ignored and twisted too easily. Business and political leaders must cling to higher standards and require that their colleagues do the same. Marc, with Real Vision's help, is shining light on the disgusting practice of cronyism that infects and can ultimately destroy capitalism (to the delight of socialists everywhere).

    What a Legend. Marc is a patriot, a God fearing man, and a perfect archetypal anti-hero. His honesty is polarizing; hated by the evil, loved by the righteous. If real vision continues with this quality, I will stay subbed for life.

    Marc Cohodes is an extraordinary man. Thank God for people like him and his supportive and brave wife. His experience with MiMedx is very disturbing and a sad reflection of the way the US has been going for decades in terms of corruption and cronyism ruling and destroying democracy and honesty. The SEC, the FDA, the FBI etc are almost certainly in the pocket of the elite / Mafia criminals whom are thriving at the expense of honest people. What Marc's story proves is that the DC swamp and its tentacles are so powerful, a rare hero like Marc is not likely to bother them. As Marc says, "he can't do this any more" and no wonder when you look at the pressures he has been submitted to, by the criminals whom are determined to try and deter him from exposing this crooked company, and bringing it down as it deserves. Anyone who has read Daniel Hopsicker's book, "Barry & the boys", exposing the disturbing link since the second world war between the CIA, the mafia and America's secret history, will not be surprised by the frustrations Marc has experienced, especially if the MiMedx board and their cronies are part of that ruthless crew.. What a sad world we live in and it genuinely makes me wonder what sort of world our children are inheriting! Well done Real Vision for spending so much time with Marc and ensuring viewers are aware of the dangers lurking both in the market and society.

    I agree with calls to move this in front of the paywall. If only 50% of what is alleged is true this represents a public service announcement that needs to find as many eyes and ears as possible.

    How do you come away from this not thinking US national federal law enforcement and elected officials are not being employed for partisan, corrupt purposes. If that is what you come away thinking what are the immediate follow on implications? The IRS has been politically weaponized vis-a-vis Lois Lerner et al. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? is not a new thought, concern, or admonition.
