FDA EXECUTIVES VIOLATE THE LAW – AGAIN
3 July 2007 -Two top FDA executives connected with oversight of Drug companies did not keep records of who they had meetings with as required by law.  Yep!  Their books were blank!   When caught with their pants down (blank appointment books) they just said, WHOOPS!  Maybe with terrorist laws the National Security Agency can spy on the FDA executive because Execs keep blank appointment books.  The FDA through poor Drug company oversight has caused more people to be killed in the U.S. than the number killed by terrorists or the number of soldiers killed in Iraq.  The FDA is responsible for 55,000 deaths by the drug Vioxx alone.  How can the FDA keep thumbing their noses laws on the record?

YTB – YOUR TRAVEL BUSINESS NEXT?
2 July 2007 – Florida after YTB reps!  The next BurnLounge in FTC eyes?  The FTC has been letting states take the lead.  Then they often follow up nationally with the evidence from the State hit (Burn Lounge).  The greater Los Angeles Better Business Bureau listed YTB as a Pyramid Scheme for over 6 months now.  In the old days (before terrorist attacks) the FTC would often follow up the LA BBB listing in about six months with court action.  Today the Department of Justice who often provides lawyers for the FTC is tied up with terrorism related cases.  The WatchDog thinks that the clock is ticking on YTB.

FTC BURNS BURN LOUNGE!
10 June 2007 -- Burn Lounge Burned!   Burn Lounge paid $50 for recruiting two new operators and selling two albums a month, while paying only 50 cents per album sold, the complaint said.  Duh!  Can you spell Pyramid by FTC standards?  The money in Burn Lounge was coming from recruiting....     Not the 50% of income from Customers the FTC wants.   BurnLounge is accused of being an illegal investment scheme in a lawsuit filed by the Federal Trade Commission last week.

There is a hidden camera clip of a distributor at a meeting making a medical claim.  Owner Sam Castor is asked if Ambrotose cures cancer and he gives a strange answer. The question is will the FDA  follow up like they did to Equinox after they were exposed on ABC’s 20/20?  Mannatech’s stock price is down of course.  Several disgruntled ex-distributors were behind this. And NO, your editor had nothing to do with this 20/20 hit after working on the Equinox project.  See the video clip by clicking on the following link.   http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex?id=3227372

Let this be a lesson to Chinese bureaucrats to study the shadow government (FDA, FTC, HHS Etc) in the U.S.  They know how to do it! http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/05/29/AR2007052902063.html?hpid=moreheadlines

YOUR MLM BIZ CHOPPED UP OR DONE IN JANUARY?  THANKS TO FTC?

9 Mar 2007 – If the FTC puts out the Business Opportunity Rule as they proposed you might as well kiss your business in half!  Now our informants tell us that the FTC is coming out with the Rule in December.  Why?  People distracted busy with Christmas.....  If the FTC has their way in January..... you will be doing this to sign a prospect up:

1.  You will be forced to give the prospect a list of 10 happy people signed up from your area and get their signature that they received it.

2.  You will have to give them a 5-6 page disclosure about your MLM plus any lawsuits or conflicts your MLM company has had and get their signature.

3. After you have done this you have wait seven (7) days before signing them up.

4. Then you will have to maintain paperwork above for Inspection for FTC Inspectors for five (?) years!
(NOT the folks you want knocking on the door of your home business)!

The Distributor Rights Association is the ONLY organization planning to take the FTC to court for violation of our Constitutional Rights if the FTC pulls shenanigans (like the FDA has).  That is why the Distributor Rights Association is having it’s Convention and Internet Conference 23-25 March this month. IT IS A FUNDRAISER for hauling the FTC into the Federal Court of Appeals and Stopping them.  DO SOMETHING!

BIO PERFORMANCE HAMMERING OUT MISLEADING PR
4 Feb 2007 – Bio Performance (BP) gasoline additive shut down by the Texas AG.  Now they have permission to operate again.  BP keeps putting out shaky press releases.  The Emissions and Mileage test they had done By Wallace Labs on BP gasoline additive reports only a Fuel Test Procedure emissions test which showed slight emissions improvement.  If you read (link below) on the test report from Wallace Labs in Houston ½ of their test is missing -  Ed. Note: The EPA  Highway Fuel Economy Test is MISSING! Suspicious Huh?  Why leave out the most important part of the test? Fuel mileage dropped?  Is the Watchdog being negative - NO WAY!

CLASS ACTION SHARKS ATTACK AMWAY = PYRAMID
25  Jan 2007 – Amway – Alticor has been sued in civil court by the latest bunch of Class Action suits against MLM Companies.  Guess these guys figured they were better than the class action folks that took on PrePaid Legal.  This should be interesting the Class Action Sharks are claiming that Alticor has no customers and the only money generated is from sales to downlines = Pyramid. Nuts!

FREE LIFE- MINDELL WHACKED BY TV INVESTIGATOR
25 Jan 2007 – These Canadian reporters are mean!  This lady really worked hard to leave no stone unturned and really got Dr. Earl Mindell to blow his stack!  Of course the Reporter also attacked Mindell's Book about Gojii Juice and then tested the Gojii juice?... then presented the Free Life Gojii juice as having few nutrients...  The inference was questionable results (though not said outright)?   The new trend in Television reporting is to Whack Juices?  – See Article below about Eniva and their Vibe liquid Nutritional Juice on NBC!

GASOLINE PILL CO. AND AG ISSUE DIFFERENT PRESS RELEASES?
23 Jan 2007 – Bio Performance (BP) settled with the Texas Attorney General.  Both Bio Performance and the Texas Attorney General put out press releases –  your Editor had a hard time... because they were like two different worlds.  BP’s press release had “strange” not to the point of bogus...  but test information that had nothing to do with fuel mileage.  Any how the BP Spin Doctor suckered some of the suckers...  See The AG’s press release and Editors Notes:

SEE PHIL'S VIDEO AND VOICE SO YOU CAN GIVE HIM DIRECTIONS

16 Jan 2007 – Last night CBS Anchor the worst on Television (who hates entrepreneurs) Attacked Nutritionals for helping Americans at a lower cost than Drugs (FDA approved drugs... that kill over 100,000 Americans a year = Proven studies).  Why did She and your local CBS affiliate do this... Duh... If you watch CBS how many Drug Company Ads Do YOU the consumer get to watch?  The LEGALIZED drug Lords Control CBS... CHALLENGE TO CBS.... Never run another Ad from the Legalized FDA Approved Drug Lords who pay 1/3 of the FDA Budget... for legal drugs that kill Americans...

NON-MLM COMPANIES SLAMMED TO GROUND ON WEIGHT LOSS

SCROOGE FOR NEW YEARS?
STANLEY HOME PRODUCT & FULLER BRUSH MLM’S SOLD
30 Dec 2006 – Stanley Home Products one of the founders of MLM & Fuller Brush an MLM predecessor (with conversion to MLM 15 years ago) have been sold.  The Parent Company CPAC Inc., announced they would be sold to Buckingham Capital Partners for $42.8 million.  A concern to the MLM Distributors was an ignorant press release that said the 600 employees (NO DISTRIBUTORS) of  CPAC would be cared for.  This press release was like a shot at the good hard working MLM folks that have worked these brands hard.
