Whirled Musings

Across the Universe with Cosmic Connie, aka Connie L. Schmidt...or maybe just through the dung-filled streets and murky swamps of pop culture -- more specifically, the New-Age/New-Wage crowd, pop spirituality & religion, pop psychology, self(ish)-help, business babble, media silliness, & related (or occasionally unrelated) matters of consequence. Hope you're wearing boots. (By the way, the "Cosmic" bit in my moniker is IRONIC.)

Cheat-o Jesus's Prosper-ity gospel, #Lexit, and other wacky Whirled matters

The past few weeks have been pretty crazy, and as summer (in the Northern Hemisphere) and the political season both heat up, it is almost certainly going to get even crazier. But just for the sake of putting in my two-cents' worth on some of the craziness, here are a few tidbits and aggregated links.

Salty Droid and Daily Kos dig into Drumpf U's Prosper connections
In case you were worried about the little fake robot's prolonged absence, there's no cause for concern. Salty Droid returned earlier this month with
a teaser about the yuuuuge scam formerly known as Trump University, which he had exposed years ago for the massive fraud that it was/is. In the teaser he took a potshot at Donald Trump's obnoxious, tone-deaf self-congratulations in the immediate wake of the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida on June 12. Salty also put together a short video that competently demonstrated the cynical lie that was Trump U.



That was just the appetizer. A few days later
Salty came back with the main course, a post focusing on the intimate connection between Cheat-o Jesus' phony institution of liar education and notorious Utah boiler-room company Prosper Inc.

As many of you may know, Salty has been on
Prosper's and Utah's case for years, being one of the very first to call out that "rotting vortex of fraud," as he put it. Salty's postings inspired me more than once to add my own voice to the (still-too-small) chorus too. One reason I found the matter of such interest was that Joe "Mr. Fire" Vitale, a frequent snarget on this Whirled, "partnered" with Prosper years ago for his extravagantly overpriced "Miracles Coaching" scheme. Over the years, others such as In the Limelight blogger Jonathan Timar, as well as The Verge, have also nabbed Joe for Miracles Coaching and its dependence upon the Prosper-generated hard sell. There have been consumer complaints about Prosper's "business coaching" as well -- see here and here and here, for instance.

Apparently, though, Prosper's co-founder Ethan Willis
got out of that racket and into another one. If I'm reading things correctly, it appears that Prosper changed hands a couple of years ago and morphed into something called Achieve Today LLC. But according to their website, Vitale and his McMiracles machine are still "partners."

At any rate, Trump U is far from the only scam in which Prosper has been involved. But it seems clear that Trump U got a lot of help and enabling from the Willis boys -- not just Ethan but his brother Damon -- back in the day when Prosper was still Prosper. The bottom line, according to Salty:

It’s not enough to call this fraud. It’s intentional manipulation :: a full degree darker than deception … and it works like a motherfucker. These guys are so good at it :: scary good … which is why they generally contract to take more than half the money in these deals.

Trump University didn’t slide gradually into scam after being confronted with the reality of the web’s unprofitable profit model … as happens to so many companies. Trump came to this game partnered with Prosper … because he was always going straight for the jugular.
That sounds pretty accurate.

By the way, Salty isn't the only one on the Prosper/Drumpf U connection. Lenny Grover put some good info together and published it on The NewsHub and on Daily Kos.
Here's the Kos link.

But as I noted on my own
very long post about the Drumpf U playbooks -- a post that totally overlooked the Prosper connection, I'm sorry to say (and really, there was no excuse for that, since Prosper was mentioned in the playbook PDF to which I linked) -- I don't think that knowing that Donald Trump is a scammer will make any difference to the hatriots and scammer wannabes who are pushing for a Drumpf presidency. For the scammer wannabes, in fact, it will just be a selling point.

LoonyC gets out of Facebook jail, and he's loonier than ever
Another frequent snarget on this blog,
Not-Doktor Leonard Coldwell, was recently sprung from Facebook jail. I wrote about his most recent 30-day suspension in late May, detailing his whines about being "banned" because, according to him, he was writing posts in support of Donald Trump. More than likely, however, he was suspended for hate speech -- not that it stopped him from posting on Facebook. The only account that was actually suspended was his main English-language page, but he continued to post on his main German page, as well as several other pages he maintains, and he even created a new fake account under the name "Eyn Rand."

Well, Lenny has been back on Facebook in full force now for a few days, and he hit the ground whining that he is probably going to be blocked again. Even more amusingly, he is boasting that he has a huge fortune of 100 billion dollars... or maybe euros; he doesn't seem to be sure which it is. And he is going to use that fortune to create his own sovereign nation. Now, where/when have we heard that before?
Oh, yeah, here -- back in April 2013 when he was boasting about having purchased 130-plus acres in South Carolina, near the Georgia border.

Anyway,
Bernie at GINtruth had some fun with Loony's latest claims.

As I noted on my comment on Bernie's blog post, in all of the posts that Lenny wrote immediately after getting out of Facebook jail, he hasn't made one mention of having been “banned” because of his pro-Trump posts. Yet his Trump advocacy was the excuse he gave at the beginning of his 30-day suspension. Post-suspension, he is only blaming the New World Order, or NWO. Maybe, I suggested, he just doesn’t remember the lie he told previously. Then again, that was 30 days ago, and probably (at least 30) bottles of bourbon ago as well.

And it seems that Lenny hasn't learned his lesson about hate speech, or perhaps he is simply trying to bait Facebook so he'll get suspended again, and can whine about it and gather more names and email addresses for his "exclusive" newsletter. On his German page, under the name "Dr." Leonard Coldwell, there's this, from June 23, 2016.


In that post he links to this awful German-language site.

Here's a link to the Googlish-translated page.



And even before that -- while he was still suspended from using his main English language Facebook page -- he shared
a link to this atrocious anti-Semitic work.








Post-suspension, and writing as Eyn Rand, he shared one of his favorite links -- again. And again:



Which makes his former lawyer's "eternal vocational suicide" defense of Lenny seem all the sillier. 



Indeed, judging by some of his Facebook posts, it would appear that Coldwell actively identifies with Hitler. This is from his German page:




A translation of the caption under the Hitler pic:


And then there's this: a clip from Lenny's June 28, 2016 interview with one of his long-time buddies, conspiracy nut and hate-monger Jeff Rense. This isn't the entire segment but it's enough to clearly call Lenny out for a particularly vicious form of anti-Semitism, marked by Holocaust denial and expressions of admiration for Adolf Hitler, whom he and Rense both portray as the egregiously misunderstood hero of history. Vocational suicide, indeed. Lenny's rants are the words of a maniac who has no real vocation left to destroy.



In light of the above, I'm all for Leonard Coldwell forming his own sovereign nation, but I hope it's far, far away from the United States. Actually, I'm thinking that the location for Loonyland might be somewhere in Russia, since Lenny has such a mad man-crush on Vladimir Putin and is supposedly going to be talking to him soon about how to save our world.






The more I think about it, the more I think that Russia would be a perfect place for Lenny, because overall people there are even more gullible than they are in the US,
as I noted in this September 2009 snarkfest.

In any case I had been wondering about Lenny's letter to Putin. I didn't have to wonder long; on June 26
he posted this on his German page:


Here is the link he shared to the letter to Putin. It's in German, but if you don't speak that language, you don't have to mess with Google or Bing's awkward machine translations. Here is the page in English.

If I'm reading his garbled garbage correctly, it appears that Lenny did not personally reach out to Putin; he merely signed an online letter. So are we to believe Putin is singling Lenny out of the 93,000-plus other souls all over the world who supposedly signed the same online letter, and that Vlad is going to be meeting personally with Lenny?

I think we all know the truth here: Lenny is just another silly Putin fanboy,
as are millions of other conservative wingnuts in the US, UK and elsewhere (e.g., Donald Trump, UKIP leader Nigel Farage, et al.). Perhaps Lenny even has a big poster of a shirtless Vlad on horseback taped to his ceiling. And so what if Amy doesn't like it? She's just a woman, and real men like Lenny don't let their wives tell them what to do.

Perhaps Lenny fantasizes about himself and Vlad prancing shirtlessly on horseback together, parading around the new sovereign nation of Loonyland, supervising drills of Lenny's Pinkshirt troops, overseeing the Lenions toiling in the organic gardens or attending the animals. Possibly he envisions Vlad and him hunting and shooting shirtlessly together like the man's men that they are.

Now that I've spoiled your appetite for dinner, let's get back to that sovereign nation notion. Like his idol
Donald Trump, Lenny has been a big and mostly ignorant advocate of #Brexit. Lenny has also gotten behind #Amexit (the US leaving the United Nations) and #Texit (Texas seceding from the United States). Well, I'm here to get behind what I hope will be a
#Lexit.

Goodbye, Lenny, and good riddance.


Burning soles redux: it's not the firewalk that's the main problem
Nearly four years ago, the Emperor of Scamworld Tony Robbins' firewalking shtick made the news because some folks at a California event got their tootsies burned. I blogged about it here. Well, it has happened again, this time in Dallas, Texas. (My pal Steve Salerno at SHAMblog was invoked by ABC News to provide insight, but they apparently did a piss-poor job of it; they ran a mere snippet of a prolonged comment he'd made after the 2012 incident.)

Not surprisingly, Robbins' faithful followers claimed that the injured people got burned
because of a lack of focus. But at least one participant said that it appeared that staff members didn't allow the coals to cool enough before adding more to the pile.

Maybe convicted, formerly imprisoned and now freed killer James Arthur Ray can get a job with the Robbins scampire.

In any case,
as Salty Droid noted back in 2012, after the California burning soles event:

bad things that scale + the internets = very scary

6000 people walking down 10+ lanes of hot coals for 90 minutes :: seems like a big bad … but it’s not the big number we should be worried about. Each one of the those 6000 people represents approximately 100 other people who were offered the opportunity to Unleash the Power Within in San Jose July 2012 and declined. Hundreds of thousands of sales messages constantly spammed across all mediums :: to the whole world … generating the contrivance of attention.

Tony Robbins will never stop telling you that the way to move forward with your life is to keep giving ever larger amounts of yourself and your life to Tony Robbins :: but he’ll never give it back … because he is a nothing and a nobody so he can’t. As shallow a god as ever there was.
But he is a shallow god who is still able to collect millions from the hopeful and the vulnerable.


Update 27 June: Salty Droid weighed in on the latest Tony's toasted toes episode, and as usual nailed it.
The media doesn’t do stories about the huge harms done by Tony Robbins. But they love the shit out of the #footburn #ambulance thing.
Yep. But the problem goes deeper...
People want solutions for their unsolvable problems … and scammers are allowed to use deception and manipulation to take advantage of that.

It wouldn’t be possible without buy-in from liars at
every level of our completely corrupted :: propaganda based … power structure.
The problem isn't just with Tony Robbins and Donald Trump. When someone as influential as former President Bill Clinton (whom I have supported, as I now support his wife) calls Tony Robbins a "very good friend," you know the malaise goes all the way up.

Sez Salty:

We best Awaken the Revolutionary Within … before there’s nothing left of our great democratic experiment but lies and burnt feet.
Update 30 June: And here is Steve Salerno, who also gets the big picture in relation to Robbins, Trump et al. and America's "Positive Mental Attitude-mania" -- a mania that has eroded common sense.

Trudeau diet book scam: come, thou long awaited refunds
Finally, and for what it's worth, many months after
U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman approved the Federal Trade Commission's proposal to start compensating purchasers of Kevin Trudeau's fraudulent diet book, it appears that the refunds are finally being issued.

My friend Julie Daniel has shared this redacted screen shot of one person's huge refund.



Judging by its news releases, the FTC seems to be patting itself on the back for this one. Small victories, I suppose. It's nothing, though, compared to the millions that Trudeau scammed out of members of his mega-scam,the Global Information Network (GIN).

That's it for now... more soon.

Mexican activist judges are destroying America


Guest post by Leonora Coldspell, CNHCPP, PhD

It's not often that I allow guest posts on this blog, and as you may know I hadn't been a Trump supporter, but in the interests of being fair and balanced I am publishing this piece. I have to admit that the writer has a powerful message about restoring sanity to the American judicial system as well as the political system, and truly making this country great again. Dr. Coldspell is a certified naturohomeochiropathic practitioner, anti-vaccination health activist, and a member of the advocacy group Americans for a More American America. She holds an honorary PhD from Baptist University of Lower Louisiana. Dr. Coldspell asked that I not edit her post in any way, shape or form, so I am honoring her wishes and presenting it here exactly as submitted to me.* Please give her words careful consideration, as she says that she represents a significant portion of the American electorate. Watch out, Hillary!

I am a proud Donald Trump supporter and frankly I am really sick of being called racist and a bigot and a hater because of that. I am about as far from a hater as anyone could be because I love America and so does Mr. Trump and thats that. And although I am fed up with being called a racist I am even more I am fed up with hearing my candidate being called a racist just because he isnt afraid to tell the truth about Mexicans and about a certain Mexican "Judge" (possible NWO operative?) named Gonzalo Curiel, who has singled Mr. Trump out for persecution because Mr. Trump wants to build a wall to make America great again and take our country back. The truth is that judge Curiel is part of a conspiracy of activist Mexican judges that are working from within to tear our country apart and weaken us and depopulate us and take our guns away to get us ready for FEMA camps and mandatory vaccinations and conversion to the Moslemic religion.

The media has been beating up on Mr. Trump for telling the truth while it has been applauding Judge Curiel for being some kind of hero.
But the truth has finally come out. Not only does Judge Curiel have deep connections to radical violent Mexican groups, but he is also a Hillary Clinton contributor! It looks like Mr Trump was right all along that the Judge had a personal vendetta against him.

And lets talk about Trump University for a few minutes since it is the focus of those unjust lawsuits. The lamestream media has jumped on this as if it was the biggest crime of the century but it was nothing more nor less than a real estate course and a very successful one for many people according to the investigative article I linked to above. It was only complained about by a tiny percentage of whiners who were probably lazy anyway or didnt do what the course told them to do or maybe they were unhappy because they didn't make a million dollars immediately. Very few if any people really lost money but too many people want something for nothing and there are so many loosers in this world, and thats not Mr. Trump's fault.

Besides many of those classes were free in the first place! A man that goes to my Church told me that his brother-in-law's boss has a next door neighbor who went to the free course and liked it so much that he signed up for another more advanced class. Someone wouldn't do that if they thought they were being screwed.

What you need to know is that there is a Mexican radical connection and a Clinton connection where judge Curiel is concerned and Donald Trump was right all along that the judge really does have a personal grudge against Mr. Trump. You can call me a racist if you want but facts are facts and I am tired of political correctness because it is destroying our country from within.

And judge Curiel is only one piece in a scandalous and dangerous puzzle. The Mexican plot against Donald Trump is ongoing and they are not even trying to hide it anymore. They even have
Donald Trump pinatas now because they are so mad about the wall and the truths Mr. Trump has told about so many of the ones they are sending over here being rapists and diseased robbers and illegals and not the best people. The writing on the wall (the wall that my candidate is going to build, ha-ha) couldn't be any clearer: THE MEXICANS MEAN TO HARM MR. TRUMP.

Now I am confident that once he is President Mr. Trump will ban the manufacture and import of all of these pinatas because they are disrespectful but even more important becuase they encourage violence and also the "candy" in them is reportedly laced with drugs or with chemtrail poison that studies have shown disrupts hormones and causes people to be homosexuals or even trannies who pray on innocent children in public restrooms. But that is a whole other subject. Anyway unfortunately Mr. Trump cant do much about the pinata scourge until he is President so until then beware of all pinatas not just the Trump ones.

By the way. The picture on this post was taken of that so called "Judge" who is persecuting Mr. Trump. It was shot during a (taxpayer-funded) junket to Mexico that the judge went on early in 2016 with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obummer after they murdered Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia by putting a pillow on his head. (Does anybody really believe Justice Scalia died of natural causes?) The trip to Mexico was supposedly a "fact-finding mission" (ha) but it was really to meet with the judge's la raza buddies according to
the source that leaked the picture. While in Mexico the judge bought a Donald Trump pinata and proudly posed with it. Somebody posted it on their Facebook page and it went viral before judge Curiel could have it removed. It's too late now Judge Curiel your secret is out. What an insult to the high position you hold. People say Mr. Trump isn't Presidential but what about judges who aren't judgelike? People who live in glass courthouses shouldnt throw stones as they say.

But there is more. It isn't just Mr. Trump that the Mexican judge cartel hates. And yes it is a cartel, judge Curiel is not the only Mexican judge in this country unfortunately. Together the mexican judges are working to make sure that illegals get to vote and get food stamps and welfare and all of our good jobs. They are ruining the moral fabric of our society. But what you really need to know is that they are involved in a elaborate plot against patriotic Americans who are not affraid to tell the truth.

Did you think Donald Trump was the only person they have gone after? Well hold on this may shock you. Many of you know about heroic consumer advocate Kevin Trudeau whose Natural Cures books ripped the lid off of the government and big food companies and big Pharma and many other things that they don't want you to know about. Mr. Trudeau was also not afraid to tell the truth about Mexicans and how Mexican illegal immigration is destroying America as we know it.
Here is a link to one of his radio shows a few years ago where he talks about that and other important things (like how the government doesn't want you to be successful which is why they persecuted motivational speaker James A. Ray according to mr Trudeau.).

And now Kevin Trudeau is in jail! In case you dont know it he is serving a ten-year sentence on trumped-up charges. All he did was exercise his free speech and and say that a diet was easy. And for that they threw him in prison. How could this happen in America you say. Well remember we are living in Obamas America -- where there is a homosexual Kenyan islamic terrorist with a wife that was born as a man and two children they are pretending are their biological kids, living in the Whitehouse! And Kevin was put in jail during the Obama administration. Coincidence? I think not. Anyway one of my associates has a cousin whos friend's mother in law went on the Kevin Trudeau diet and lost nearly 100 pounds and she said it really was easy! Yet Kevin got thrown in prison for saying the same thing.

But as you get further down the rabbit hole of truth you will see there is more.
Kevin also defended Donald Trump as a truth teller a few years ago. Maybe that was when he sealed his fate at the hands of the Mexican judiciary cartel.

So do you know the name of the judge who put Mr. Trudeau in jail for ten years? No it wasnt Judge Curiel because it wasn't his jurisdiction but it was Judge Ronald Guzman, another Mexican. Judge Guzman is definitely not an American he was born in Puerto Rico where they also speak mexican! And he was nominated to his current high position by President Bill Clinton so theres another criminal Clinton connection right there. Are you seeing a pattern here? If not you haven't done your research or you may be just another sheeple.

But there is still hope for you. We still have a few months until the election. More and more people are waking up and come November, we will be casting our votes for Donald Trump the man who will keep America safe from illegal Mexicans and muslin terrorists and hopefully from the Rothschilds who really run everything. (By the way do you think that it is coincidence that the two judges who oversaw Mr. Trudeau's cases, Robert Gettleman (probably a jewish zionist name!) and Ronald Guzman, have the same initials, "RG"? And that those are the same initials as "Rothschild Goons?" The New World Order is speaking to us in code and again the writing is on the wall!)

So forget your political correctness and stop calling the people racists who are only trying to help save our country. A vote for anyone but Donald Trump is a vote against America and all that we hold most dear. He will restore sanity to this country not only to the courts but to the whole political system because he is not a politician and cant be bought. He will also be able to finally rain in the lying lamestream media by strengthening libel laws and forcing the media to tell the truth or go out of business. Donald Trump tells it like it is and not like the way the politically correct crowd and the social justice warriors wish it was.


Some people say to me how could you support Trump if your a woman. Well there are millions of us women who proudly support him. And not just because he has hired many women for his businesses and gave them all a chance to succeed in a so called mans world. It's also because he will save us from the alternative under Killary (which Hussein Obama-nation has paved the way for), which is an America where we are forced to speak Arabian and have to live under Sharai laws where women are treated worse than dogs and they have to keep their heads covered or they get raped in Mosques by diseased imans. And those will be the lucky ones because at least they will still have heads to cover. If people (women or men or children) try to stand up for their Christian faith there heads will be cut off on TV to make an example of them. Mr Trump will save us from that. He is the only one who can.

So a vote for Donald Trump is a vote for American greatness. God bless America and God bless Donald Trump. In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savor, amen.

* Specifically, this post is presented exactly as the voices in my head submitted it to me, since -- I confess! -- I totally made up Dr. Coldspell and this piece is satirical. But I can't really claim to have made up the sentiments, which are loudly trumpeted (so to speak) all over the Internet by Donald fans and conspiracy nuts -- including some of those who have been snargets on this blog (e.g., "Dr." Leonard Coldwell, longtime Kevin Trudeau buddy Fred van Liew, et al.).  The spelling and grammatical errors were deliberate but actually I was being charitable, as I've seen much worse by some of the Trumpians (e.g., the aforementioned "Dr." C). ~CC
