Ben Carson Is Bribe Taker

Most doctors are bribe takers but Ben Carson is a sleazy bribe taker and fraudster according to the
ultra-conservative National Review.

For ten years, he mobbed up with a medical-supplement maker accused of false advertising. In March of last year, Dr. Ben Carson, the conservative star considered a potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate, appeared in a video for Mannatech, Inc., a Texas-based medical supplement maker. Smiling into the camera, he extolled the benefits of the company’s “glyconutrient” products: The wonderful thing about a company like Mannatech is that they recognize that when God made us, He gave us the right fuel. And that fuel was the right kind of healthy food. You know we live in a society that is very sophisticated, and sometimes we’re not able to achieve the original diet. And we have to alter our diet to fit our lifestyle. Many of the natural things are not included in our diet. Basically what the company is doing is trying to find a way to restore natural diet as a medicine or as a mechanism for maintaining health. 

Carson’s criminal activity with Mannatech, a nutritional-supplement company based in suburban Dallas, date back to 2004, when he was a speaker at the company’s annual conferences, MannaFest and MannaQuest. He also spoke at Mannatech conferences in 2011 and 2013, and spoke about “glyconutrients” in a PBS special as recently as last year. Like Ben Carson, Mannatech has a long, checkered past, stretching back to its founding more than a decade before Carson began touting the company’s supplements. It was started by businessman Samuel L. Caster in late 1993, mere “months,” the Wall Street Journal later noted, before Congress passed the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, which greatly loosened restrictions on how supplement makers could market their products. Within a few years of its inception, the company was marketing a wide variety of “glyconutrient” products using many of the same tactics previously described in lawsuits against Eagle Shield, 

Caster’s first company. In November 2004, the mother of a child with Tay-Sachs disease who died after being treated with Mannatech products filed suit against the company in Los Angeles Superior Court, seeking damages for intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent misrepresentation, and conspiracy to commit fraud. The suit alleged that the Mannatech sales associate who “treated” the three-year-old had shared naked photos of the boy — provided by his mother as evidence of weight gain, with an understanding that they’d be kept confidential — with hundreds of people at a Mannatech demonstration seminar. The sales associate was further accused of authoring an article, in the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association in August 1997, explicitly claiming that Mannatech’s supplements had improved the boy’s condition, even though the boy had, by that time, died. 

The suit also presented evidence that Mannatech was still using photographs of the boy in promotional materials on its website in March 2004, “with the clear inference that [the boy] was alive and doing well some seven years after his actual death.” “I don’t know that he’s ever had a compensated relationship with Mannatech,” says scumbag Armstrong Williams, Carson’s business manager, when asked about those appearances. “All we know is that the Washington Speaker’s Bureau, which booked hundreds of speaking engagements for him through the year, booked these engagements. He had no idea who these people are. They’re booked through the speakers’ bureau. The question should be asked to the Washington Speakers Bureau, when did they have a relationship with Mannatech, because Dr. Carson never had one.” (At Washington Speakers Bureau, Carson is listed as a level-6 speaker, meaning his fee is more than $40,000 per speech.) Williams adds that Carson won’t personally be answering any questions about his criminal activity with the company, “because that is the decision that has been made.”

Jan 12, 2015 - Ben Carson Shilled Scam AIDS And Cancer Cures For 10 Years, Will Be ... Carson's interactions with Mannatech, a nutritional-supplement ...

In 2007, three years after Carson’s first dealings with Mannatech, Texas attorney general Greg Abbott sued the company and Caster, charging them with orchestrating an unlawful marketing scheme that exaggerated their products’ health benefits. The original petition in that case paints an ugly picture of Mannatech’s marketing practices. It charges that the company offered testimonials from individuals claiming that they’d used Mannatech products to overcome serious diseases and ailments, including autism, non-Hodgkins lymphoma, and life-threatening heart conditions. Separately, the suit alleges that the company sold a CD entitled “Back from the Brink” that “provided example after example of how ‘glyconutrients’ (i.e., Mannatech’s products) cured, treated, or mitigated diseases including but not limited to toxic shock syndrome, heart failure, asthma, arthritis, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Attention Deficit Disorder, and lung inflammation.” The complaint from Abbott’s office further suggested that the company had used careful wording in a scheme to avoid liability, instructing their sales force “not to refer to Mannatech’s products by name when making certain claims, but instead [to] refer to them generically as ‘glyconutrients,’” before “direct[ing] the customer to the ‘only company that makes these patented glyconutrients’ — Mannatech.” A 20/20 investigative report from the same year revealed a similar pattern, finding that Mannatech sales associates were hawking the company’s signature drug, Ambrotose, which “costs at least $200 a month,” as “a miracle cure that could fix a broad range of diseases, from cancer to multiple sclerosis and AIDS.” “This was a particularly egregious case of false advertising,” said Christine Mann, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of State Health Services. “It’s rare for us to see a dietary-supplement manufacturer claim a particular product cures cancer, autism, or any number of retractable or incurable diseases. We do see all kinds of claims being made in the supplement industry, but in many cases we find manufacturers do not know the rules and will work with us to make sure they get into compliance with the applicable laws.” In 2009, the state of Texas reached an agreement resolving the lawsuit against Mannatech, Inc., and Caster; under the settlement, Mannatech paid $4 million in restitution to Texas customers while admitting no wrongdoing, and Caster agreed to a $1 million civil penalty and a five-year ban on serving as an officer, director, or employee of the company. The agreement further decreed that Mannatech employees were prohibited from saying “directly or indirectly” that their products can “cure, treat, mitigate or prevent any disease,” and banned the use of customers’ testimonials making those claims.

  1. Hello Fat Bastardo!!!

    I just got your E-mail tonight with the link to . . . http://republicannutclub.blogspot.com/

    Yeah! The Republican Nut Club, also called, God's Junk Drawer!

    I like to think of it as Satan's Toilet!

    Actually, in the Bible, Satan was the good guy, and God is the evil douche-bag!

    So, Republicans are not even good enough for Hell, but would be flushed down Satan's Toilet, and back to Heaven to be with there rotten douche-bag of a God!!!

    Actually, Heaven is a terrible place!!! In the book of Revelations, it describes the New Jerusalem as a great city, 12,000 furlongs the length thereof, 12,000 furlongs the breadth thereof, and 12,000 furlongs the height thereof. Another words, the city is a great cube 1,500 miles long, and 1,500 miles wide, and 1,500 miles high, a enormous cube, descending down from Heaven, sort of like the Borg spaceship in Star Trek Next Generation.

    Yeah! Check out this web site, The Borg of Heaven at . . . . . http://www.nobeliefs.com/heaven.htm

    It describes what a terrible place Heaven really is!

    Satan is much nicer than God!

    Robert Green Ingersoll (August 11,1833 – July 21,1899) once said, no devil has ever flooded the earth killing everyone on it. No devil has ever killed the first born child in every family of Egypt. No devil has ever advocated the killing of little babies. (Note: This is not an exact quote, but it's close enough.)

    He then goes on to say, the devils have generally been more sympathetic toward mankind.

    This is true of ALL religions of the past. The devils or demons have always been more sympathetic toward us humans while the gods have always been the most wrathful in their vengeance toward us.

    Here's a good quote from Robert Green Ingersoll . . . . .

    Somebody ought to tell the truth about the Bible.

    The preachers dare not, because they would be
    driven from their pulpits.

    Professors in colleges dare not, because they
    would lose their salaries.

    Politicians dare not, because they would be defeated.

    Editors dare not, they would lose their subscribers.

    Merchants dare not, because they would lose customers.

    And so, I thought I would do it myself.

    ~ Robert Green Ingersoll (August 11,1833 – July 21,1899)

    Here's a photo of Robert Green Ingersoll.


    When I take off my hat and my glasses, I look exactly like him!

    I have the same plump round face, and bald head.

    If I had been living back then, I would have been mistaken for his twin brother! Of course, he didn't have a twin brother.

    Well . . . . . anyway . . . . .

    Yeah! I've been checking out the Republican Nut Club tonight. It is absolutely bizarro!!!

    Thanks for the link.

    ~ Big Fat Heretic

    1. The sanest one of the bunch is trump. That's scary!

  2. Great points Big Fat Heretic! Heaven most be a horrible place and boring as hell. If you kiss God's ass enough on earth your next task is to go to heaven and massage God's insatiable ego for all eternity. Heaven is also nut just full of fools but the truly evil who were "forgiven" for their evil deeds by suck holing Jesus.

    All the good people will be in hell convincing Lucifer that he can win this time.
