Images Of Walmart, Donald Trump, Warren Buffet Removed From MPB Today Website; Testimonials Go Missing, Too; Affiliate Bashes Obama, Hillary Clinton In Promo

An animated promo for MPB Today portrays President Obama as a weakling who cowers to Secretary of State "Hitlary Clinton," who is depicted as a drunken, sobbing Nazi wearing "puke colored" clothes purchased at Big Lots, a discount store. First Lady Michelle Obama is portrayed as suffering from a gas attack in the Oval Office after sampling beans at a Sam's Club store.

UPDATED 7:32 P.M. EDT (U.S.A.) Images of a Walmart store and business tycoons Donald Trump and Warren Buffet have gone missing from the landing page of a website operated by MPB Today, a multilevel-marketing (MLM) firm that operates a 2×2 cycler matrix tied to a grocery business known as Southeastern Delivery in Pensacola, Fla.

The website images appear to have been removed yesterday. It was unclear if Walmart, Trump and Buffet forced the removal. It is common for promos for MLMs to imply endorsements from famous companies and people — even if no such endorsements exist.

Testimonials from customers purportedly happy with Southeastern’s grocery-delivery business also have been removed.

Separately, an animated affiliate promo for MPB Today is bashing the Obama administration, painting Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a Nazi and showing a cowering Obama saying “Heil Hitlary” and giving Clinton — who apparently is drunk on wine — a  left-handed Nazi salute while First Lady Michelle Obama is conked out on the floor of the Oval Office.

A prompt in the animated video says it was produced by a “Real Mentor, Not Merely a Marketer” for MPB Today. It was not immediately clear if the affiliate was seeking to build an MPB organization that consisted solely of Obama opponents. Also unclear is why the affiliate believed it prudent to bash the President of the United States in his or her bid to woo prospects and recruit affiliates.

As Michelle Obama is emerging from a comatose state, a thought balloon attributed to her animated image asks, “I feel so woozy, like I got clunked in the head with Hitlary’s whine, what just happened??”

The 1:40 video is filled with sophomoric and caustic humor — a dog is shown thinking that Clinton is a “Brown Noser” and the animation tries to pull off a gag about Michelle Obama’s need for the product Beano while in the Oval Office, for example.

An embarrassed Michelle Obama is shown observing that her gas problem was caused by “beans” she sampled at Sam’s Club, a chain of stores under the Walmart flag. President Obama is shown saying he “borrowed” $200 to join MPB Today and “wrote it off” — apparently at the expense of taxpayers.

“You what??” a horrified Michelle Obama counters. “You borrowed the money to join MPB Today? Who’d loan YOU money??”

Walmart did not respond to a request for comment last week from the PP Blog about the use of its name in MPB Today promotions. Some MPB affiliates routinely are using Walmart’s name in sales pitches. One affiliate in a separate video claimed that MPB Today had a “contract” with Walmart and that the MLM program was “Govt. certified with Food Stamps!”

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) said last week that it was conducting a “review” of claims made about the program. The agency said today that it was continuing to review the situation.

The animated pitch featuring the Obamas and Clinton asks prospects to visit a website that suggests that “just” a $200 One-Time” purchase with MPB Today can “Totally Eliminate Your Grocery Bill.”

MPB Today has been targeted at Food Stamp recipients, Ponzi scheme victims, foreclosure subjects and people of faith — and now, apparently, at people who are not enthusiastic about Obama’s presidency, U.S. policy at the Department of State and Hillary Clinton’s clothing choices.

  1. The caliber of this You Tube advertisement is a very telling inditement of MPB. The fact that they have chosen to promote their business through promoters who need to sink to the level of using poor taste political jokes (satire is far too good a word for it)to recruit, doesnt say much for their product.

    A good product, even in MLM, can be promoted on its merits, and there is never any need to lie or resort to extremist methods to sell it. Another red flag that perhaps there are no merits in the MPB product.

  2. It perhaps is worth noting that, yesterday between 11 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. EDT, 29 viewers suddenly were browsing the MPB Today thread at the MoneyMakerGroup Ponzi forum, according to the counter at the forum.

    After the sudden, brief surge, the viewership retreated to its usual level of one or two viewers in that thread.

    What caused the surge is unclear. Perhaps an upline put out that word that there was important information in that thread. No one left a post during the surge.

    No way to know for certain what caused 29 viewers suddenly to appear in that thread, of course.

    Over at the ASAMonitor Ponzi forum, meanwhile, poster “Ken Russo” continues to cheer for MPB Today.

    A cycler known as Regenesis 2×2 once was a subject of “Ken Russo’s” cheerleading.

  3. Ken Russo is and always will be a ponzi pimp. I wonder if Uncle Sam knows all the money he’s made from ill gotten gains? Might be interesting to find out…..*EG*

    Perhaps someone at the state level might be interested in him…….one never knows.

  5. Instead of Donald Trump and Warren Buffet, they seem to be using promotional guff from a “Mark Yarnell”.

    Mark Yarnell is an accomplished author, orator, and international business leader with twenty-one years of applied Network Marketing experience. He has built a successful international distribution organization of more than 300,000 marketing representatives in twenty-one countries.

    One of the first companies he strted was based on “IE crystals”.
    http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/ATG/yarnell-faq.html

    We believe, based on the evidence we’ve examined so far, that IE crystals are a delusion. They don’t exist; they’re the modern equivalent of “magic fairy dust”. They appear to have been “discovered” through shoddy science done without proper controls or replication.

    He is also in the WWSN Hall Of Fame:

    Other Hall Of Fame members include Phill Piccolo (DNA), Jim Fobair (was a speaker at a NarcThatCar rally, I think) and Keith Laggos (one of the ASD MLM “experts”.

  6. The person who created the “Obama” video referenced above is also promoting something called “The Amega Wand”. The Merseyside Skeptics Society gives it a look:

    Joyous, rapturous, mind-bogglingous levels of pseudoscientific bullshit – great work, Amega.

    If you can get alasycia to use them it would be a miracle!!!! I know how much Patrick loves exclamation marks.

  9. Now why would alasycia want to use a Miracle Dish Towel when she has her Super Miracle Dishwasher to do it for her? We do have electricity in Europe – and Walmarts, Mr. Edgington. Fortunately MPB is still US based, but it is only a matter of time before someone in London will try to recruit people to have their groceries delivered from Pensicola. lol

    And not a simgle exclamation mark and yes I am following Patrick’s blog. hehe
