Donald Trump, Stephen Bannon, Breitbart and the pernicious 'MLM/Herbalife' fairy story.


More than half a century of quantifiable evidence, proves beyond all reasonable doubt that what has become popularly known as 'Multi-Level Marketing' is nothing more than an absurd, cultic, economic pseudo-science, and that the impressive-sounding made-up term 'MLM,' is, therefore, part of an extensive, thought-stopping, non-traditional jargon which has been developed, and constantly-repeated, by the instigators, and associates, of various, copy-cat, major, and minor, ongoing organised crime groups (hiding behind labyrinths of legally-registered corporate structures) to shut-down the critical, and evaluative, faculties of victims, and of casual observers, in order to perpetrate, and dissimulate, a series of blame-the-victim closed-market swindles or pyramid scams (dressed up as 'legitimate direct selling income opportunites'), and related advance-fee frauds (dressed up as 'legitimate training and motivation, self-betterment, programs, recruitment leads, lead generation systems,' etc.)

What a surprise, it didn't take long for 'MLM' pitchman, Donald Trump, to signal his presidential-intentions towards blame-the-victim 'MLM' cultic racketeering.

President-elect Trump has appointed Stephen Bannon as his Chief Strategist.

So who is Stephen Bannon and what links him to 'MLM' racketeering?

Bannon is:
  • Executive Chairman of Breitbart News - one of the most-popular right-wing/conservative news, and opinion, sites in America. 
  • a graduate of Georgetown University and Harvard Business School, former US Navy officer and investment banker at Goldman Sachs
  • a documentary film-maker who produced films celebrating Sarah Palin and the Tea Party

  • perceived as being opposed the traditional Republican establishment - he has been branded a racist and right-wing extremist by certain members of the Republican party.

Breitbart's reality-inverting jargon-laced coverage of the tragicomic 'Herbalife' saga (signed by Brian McNicoll) has been a transparent attempt to re-inflate the market-price of effectively-valueless shares in a demonstrably-criminal enterprise.

Interestingly, a large chunk of fraudulent 'Herbalife' shares, are currently owned by Donald Trump's buddy, Carl Icahn. 

Thus, under Stephen Bannon, the Breitbart site has spread downright lies - facilitating the continuation of a multi-billion dollar fraud and obstructing justice. Breitbart has ignored a growing-mountain of quantifiable evidence proving 'Herbalife' to be the legally-registered corporate-front for a criminal cultic racket, and has been used as a platform to paint Bill Ackman as a criminal stock market manipulator attacking a completely innocent, and legal, American business. This black propaganda has obviously come straight from the 'Herbalife' Ministry of Truth and itself forms part of a pattern of ongoing major racketeering activity which stretches back decades.

  1. "the Breitbart website has spread downright lies". Can you please expand?

    1. Apart from the fact that the made-up technical-sounding term 'Multi Level Marketing' is itself a lie: the Breitbart propaganda says that the FTC ruling was the end of the matter and that 'Herbalife' can now sail on regardless, when nothing could be further from the truth. In reality, 'Herbalife's' bosses were given a long list of conditions to adhere to which have been designed to guarantee that, henceforth, the vast majority of 'Herbalife's' revenues will derive lawfully from authentic retail sales to members of the general public.

      The Breitbart propaganda also pretends that Bill Ackman financed Ted Braun's documentary, 'Betting On Zero'.

  2. Do you support the 'Not My President' protesters?

    1. Anonymous - No, the only thing I support is the truth, and the truth is Mr. Trump has been elected US President.

      The time to have stopped Mr. Trump has long-since passed. In many respects Mr. Trump's limp political opponents are to blame for his election success, for during the last 8 years, federal agencies of law enforcement (with senior officials appointed by President Obama), and the mainstream media, have done precious-little to challenge the pernicious 'MLM' fairy story or Mr. Trump's criminal role in promoting it. As a result, there was no widespread public protest against 'MLM' cultic racketeers and Mr. Trump was not held fully to account.
