About Robert Gore

Robert Gore was born in 1958 in Livermore, California. He grew up in Los Alamos, New Mexico, where both his parents worked for the Los Alamos National Laboratory. His undergraduate education was at UCLA. He graduated in 1980 summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa with a double major in economics and political science. He completed the JD/MBA program at UC Berkeley in 1984. He held part-time jobs throughout undergraduate and graduate school. He passed the bar exam and is an inactive member of the California Bar Association.

Mr. Gore’s career in finance began in 1984 with a bank in San Francisco, trading municipal bonds. In 1985, he went to a Wall Street firm’s west coast municipal bond office in Los Angeles as a bond trader. He developed its block and institutional sales capabilities and after four years was promoted to manager of the region.

In 1990, Mr. Gore went to a private partnership, headquartered in Los Angeles, which served a high net worth clientele throughout Southern California, as head of the firm’s fixed income division. In 1991, he became one of the youngest partners in the firm’s history. The fixed income division was consistently among the firm’s most profitable and in 2003, he was named to the executive committee. He wrote a market commentary that was distributed to the firm’s clients. Already known for his prescient calls, in 2006 he began warning of a looming housing debacle and financial crisis. His family sold their house and he set up a proprietary trading desk to capitalize on the situation. His prediction was initially not popular with his firm’s financial advisors, but it ended up saving their clients a great deal of money and he has garnered a substantial following. His current prediction: the worst is yet to come.

Mr. Gore is a past president of the Los Angeles Municipal Bond Club. He has made appearances on television and radio shows as an expert in fixed income securities and California municipal bonds. He has been quoted in the Los Angeles Times and the Orange County Register and had a letter published in the Financial Times.

In July of 2012, Mr. Gore retired from financial services to devote full-time to his writing. His first novel, The Gordian Knot, a legal thriller and courtroom drama, was published by the Writers Club Press, an imprint of iUniverse.com, in 2000 (Amazon link). His second novel, The Golden Pinnacle, is now available on Amazon. More information about and excerpts from The Golden Pinnacle are available on the Novels tab, and at thegoldenpinnacle.com. His articles on straightlinelogic.com have been featured in The Sangre de Cristo Sentinel, a Colorado newspaper. He is also a featured writer on The Savvy Streetan online magazine.

Besides writing, Mr Gore plays golf, skis, swims, cycles, and enthusiastically shuns politics.

  1. Hi Robert,
    Read your Rev. in America article, and wondered if you would come up on air at http://www.fromthetrenchesworldreport.com/ radio show starting at 2:00pm central time till 4:00pm to discuss it. Some people have stated that the premise is faulty, that being that we cannot overthrow a gov. that does not exist. Here is a specific comment US Marine Fighting Tyranny says:
    January 8, 2015 at 8:33 am

    My Fellow Patriots:

    Unfortunately,… it appears people have not recognized one simple fact:

    This article is DEAD-WRONG right out the gate!,…. it’s base-line assumption is completely wrong!,… therefore, any arguement or solution developed on that base-line assumption,.. is also wrong!,… bar none! (I’m still shaking my head in disbelief about what some people wrote in response to this article…)

    Lets start right at the first 9 words:
    ************************************

    “What would it take to overthrow the U.S. government?”

    ALREADY,.. the author demonstrates his wanton ignorance,… overt stupidity,.. or both.

    FACT: THE US GOV’T HAS ALREADY BEEN OVERTHROWN!,.. PERIOD,.. BAR NONE! (What part of this simple fact are people still not getting???)

    If we had a legitmate, “US Gov’t”,… we would NOT want to overthrow it!,… and it would be PROTECTING us from the forces that have already infiltrated, subverted and taken COMPLETE control of this country and the global financial system, by a criminal cartel mistakenly called a gov’t!!!

    Does anyone NOT understand this simple reality yet?? (Again,.. I’m shaking my head in disbelief at peoples perspective on this simple,.. but deadly reality!)

    Quick Refresher Course On Some Fundamental Concepts:
    **********************************************

    GOVERNMENTS: Goverrnmets exist (legitimate gov’ts that is),…. for the BENEFIT of the people that agree to have that government!

    Legitimate gov’ts seek to minimize internal frauds and abuses,. and to protect from external threats while creating and maintaining an atmosphere of safety and security.

    CRIMINAL CARTELS: Criminal Cartels exist to the DETRIMENT of the people they claim control over!

    Criminal Cartels seek to maximize internal frauds and abuses, and expose whole populations to every form of external threat to help create and maintain an atmosphere of fear and panic!

    Now,… given what you know about the current,.. “US Gov’t”,.. which of those above descriptions more accurately portrays what we have in this country right now??

    What the article SHOULD have started with:
    ********************************************

    Given that the USA has ALREADY been overthrown from within and this Criminal-Cartel has now consolidated it’s power on all the facets of control,… How do we expose them?,… How do we remove them from their control?,…. How do we RESTORE a Constitutional Republic?,… and, How do we ensure this never happens again?

    As I responded to Katie today, who was running along the lines of using the monetary/financial system AGAINST them,… I wrote:
    ********************************************************************************************************

    “Yes!,.. but the question is,. how?

    You can NOT run them out of a resource that they can produce an infinite amount of (…their monetary and financial fraud!,… remember,.. the supply of fraud is infinite,… so you can never implode their system by trying to engage them in a war of attritution on that bases)

    We can NEVER win in any way, phyical (tactical) or otherwise, by engaging them on any of their systems of control,.. period,.. bar none!

    So, what does that leave us?

    We have to exit the typical fields of approach (which they already dominate),… and utilize a strategy and set of tactics that WE control.

    This of course is more easily said than done,.. but none the less,… the only way to win,… is to engage this doctrine of “Asset & Resource Dislocation”,.. meaning,… being in control of all elements needed to gain control of our country back,… or dislocating all the resources needed by us,.. FROM the control of the commies now running this country.

    Remember, whatever the commies control,.. by definition,… they control!,…. and will do so to our detriment!,… bar none.

    This means,.. we MUST,.. if we intent to restore our country, utilize all elements and resources,… which we can acquire, control and maintain control of, as we engage,.. otherwise,,… they will SEIZE any resource that we attempt to use,… to unseat them.

    The short version of this is: We can NOT rely on any resource that they can,.. and will take control of, as they seek greater control,.. and we seek to stop them.

    A simple equation,.. but one that many people still do not understand as they keep trying to fight from “within” the system,… and then act surprised or confused when they hit ANOTHER roadblock in their efforts!

    This is the nature of what we are up against.

    The real fight is understanding this,.. and developing counter-strategies when the Enemy-Force-In-Occupation,… ALREADY has the upper hand.

    This is not a comfortable reality to acknowledge,… but winning, requires, knowing what our true position is in this fight.

    We will be discussing this more on the radio show as it is clear,.. the financial/economic systems are now near a breakdown event globally

  2. I have a blog that focuses on Libertarian issues. It’s at realquestionsandrealanswers.blogspot.com . I think it’s a great blog, but nobody reads it. How do I promote it?

    • Dean,
      I looked at your blog. I agree with many of your answers to the questions posed, but it may be too pedantic for many readers. A good percentage of blog readers have a Libertarian orientation, but I think you’d do better with them by weaving your Libertarian themes into real life events. As for promotion, I think the best promotion is consistently excellent and challenging writing about things people care about. I have done virtually nothing to promote SLL, but my articles are now picked up by a variety of sites, including Zero Hedge, and my readership continues to expand. One last tip. Consider featuring other sites and material on your site, and linking via your blog roll to other sites. It attracts a wider readership, and sometimes other sites return the favor.

    Robert — I am not writing to you to comment on your various articles. I am an old friend of your Mom’s ((one of her Winnemucca traveling buddies) and I am concerned about her. I have not heard from her in a couple of years. In 2014 we talked about her coming up to visit in Montana. Then in 2015 I sent her various E-mails and have not had any responses. This year I called her on her birthday and got only the message service. I have not had a reply. I would love to know if she is OK and if not, what health issues she is dealing with. I know this is not the place for this request but I don’t know how else to make contact. Sincerely — Barbara Heward Nickolich Callison

    • Ms. Callison,
      My mom is fine and I don’t know why she hasn’t responded. I will forward my email version of this comment to her and mention it the next time I talk to her.
