Kevin Trudeau faces up to life in prison for writing a book about weight loss.

Kevin Trudeau faces up to life in prison for writing a book about weight loss and how it can be cured naturally without drugs and surgery. He was fined $37 million originally and refused to pay. One of his books, Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You To Know About was a national best-seller for several months and brought him a lot of attention. He has been getting sued by the FDA for years and was banned from selling supplements. He has helped and woken up countless people to the corruption of big pharma and government. Pray for a positive outcome and an end to governmental and special interest tyranny.

He was one of the first to expose me to Ron Paul, libertarianism, Alex Jones, and freedom.

Peace.

Red pill sales man. He sells the exposure to corrupt gov.

Read his books you will see. You can buy them for a few dollars at used book stores.

should of been a

should of been a politician.....

I've read his books

He consistently goes out of his way to qualify his statements by adding I am not a doctor, you should seek your doctor's advice, by the way, fda is making me say this, but what I would do is this....

It reads as honest and genuine. I agree with 90% of what he writes.

no...

he told people he eats sugar and carbs all day long and can't gain weight on his program.

he's fibbing. and scamming. if you think lying is a proponent of libertarianism and because he's "fighting the man" that makes him on your side, why aren't you a level 5 gin member yet giving your life savings to the guy? If you didn't give him every penny you have, listen to him call those people "crybabies" here..

I just ordered his weight loss book.

I'll read it and decide for myself.

I'm not sure what he's been sued for by the Feds, as I don't see a link from the opening poster.

But I will say that it appears he has lots of supporters, many fans, etc. Are THEY suing him? Did he scam them? How so?

Perhaps he's a con man, I don't know.

But one thing we DO know: the federal gov't is criminal. THEY are the biggest con artist in the world, in conspiracy with the Fed Reserve banks, and if they are going after him, that generally means he's not one of them, he's an outsider.

But maybe it's all theater.

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

He was sued by the feds for

He was sued by the feds for selling a calcium supplement and claiming it could help cure cancer which is illegal apparently because "only a drug or surgery can treat disease" according to the FDA. He was banned from selling supplements so started writing books but was told not to put false claims. Even though he claims that his books are fiction in the opening, they went after him for claiming the weight loss protocol described in the book is "easy", and the judge disagreed and said it is not. Then they sued him 37$ mil which was the estimated profit even though no one who bought the book ever asked for a refund. He refused to pay saying he didn't have the money and now he is in jail awaiting sentencing. His book Natural Cures They Don't Want You to Know About is a modern classic and a potentially life changing book. He is an overzealous salesman, but that doesn't take away the information he provides and his ability to reach a lot of people. I would have to say that reading his book was like taking the red pill for me and my life
has not been the same since.

ridiculous logic

I'm going to support someone a bad govt said was bad because they said they were bad.

Maybe, just maybe, the guy isn't a good guy, and maybe, just maybe, if you used your brain you would determine that before ordering a health book written by a scam artist.

PS - do you really think scam artists are selling books? Can't wait to hear your book review, and if you had to buy into his gin membership to actually get information. he's also an expert on 1,000 other topics and has many more books. funny, i don't hear him actually saying anything in his interviews.

you'd probably like robert kiosaki too. lied to promote his real estate classes. oh, wait, this guy has his own clasess...

Did you read any of his books?

Hey Taz41, I will bet that you haven't read one of his books. I have and he makes a lot of sense. Don't be such an A-Hole

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Hey Archons', we are taking our planet back and there's nothing you can do about it!

Taz41 over simplification much?

The basic message in his books is, eat organic unprocessed foods. I did that as an experiment, I lost weight and kept it off. I am 40 and am healthier than I have ever been. About GIN I didn't join, lots of people did and they did as consenting adults. That being said, you have not read his book and you only quote the book out of context.

Kevin Trudeau exposes gov. corruption and that is why they attack him.

He is the reason I found out about Ron Paul. He has endorsed RP. He is responsible for saving many lives by waking people up to the currupt food and medical monopoly being run by our gov.

do me a favor?

Update this thread sometime once uve read the book and tell us what u thought?

Watch what you think......

about Trudeau.

He has been under a media smear (which could very easily be effecting your thoughts) for more than 10 years -always warning about TPTShouldn'tB-. This has effected everybody's opinion about him.

This and his money is the real reason why they are going after him.

He "triggered" a life of spiritual discovery for me

when I, one late night, saw an infomercial about his Global Information Network where he was exposing the "esoteric" methods some [d]elite secret societies, and generally successful people, have used to attain their wealth and prosperity. At the end of that program he listed some other books that people could source for themselves and one he emphasized was called "Ask and it IS Given". My life hasn't been the same since. So, he didn't really do anything other than "guide me" to some new information that wasn't even his and I never bought into the G.I.N. since I found there were countless sources of this kind of information freely available on the internet.

A lot of people have chosen the "New Age" angle to sell it and make a profit off of it as well and others are simply sharing it with the world unrestricted, as information should be. He's not a man who is liked by TPTB for multiple reasons, but he does seem sincere in bringing people useful information and not timid about making a living off of it.

They're just trying to discredit and bury this man for challenging the Status Quo. I wish him luck.

I have a tangential question regarding a part of your comment

about information how information should shared with the world unrestricted:I have been vacillating between 2 answers for almost a year...
I have spent 6 hours/day over the last 15 years unraveling, streamlining, clarifying, and answering a question that plagues many people and the sharing of this information could help turn around millions of lives...I have the answer, and as far as I can tell, no one else does. At least no one else has published the answer and I have read every paper on the topic I can find.

Should I share this information with the world at no charge or should I attempt to earn a living with what I know by charging a fee?

What feels "right" to you?

You may be driven by a desire to help others at no cost to them, likewise, you may be driven to support yourself and your family by seeking compensation for your effort in organizing this information for others.

Both are the answer it just depends on the desires and motivations of the individual information provider. Do whatever feels like the right thing to do for your needs first. An audience is there for both to be possible. And if you pursue these goals with a foundation of "feeling right about it" then you will attract the kinds of people that will appreciate your work regardless if they're paying for it or not.

Guy is a con artist though.

Guy is a con artist though. Always has been. His political beliefs might be on track but hes a flat out criminal.

He helps to wake up the asleep masses.

Anyone that publicly becomes a threat to the system is smeared. One of the most common responses I get when people know about Ron Paul is "Ron Paul is crazy". Mass media does this. Kevin has done some illegal things in the past but running GIN or writing books is not illegal. He has legal disclaimers throughout his books. He always tells his readers to verify all of his information.
Not a fraud, a truth teller.

He was jailed years ago for

He was jailed years ago for using a fake social security number to open an account. Recently he started a pyramidal business called global information networking which is not illegal. I agree that he's done some questionable things but his message is in on point and he's been one if the biggest fighters for 1st amendment rights and free market capitalism. His books contain a lot of information on treating and reversing serious health issues. Any one with health problems should check out what he says. Mike Adams is another with similar information.

How is he a con artist?

I'd like to know.

After purchasing and reading his book on natural cures about 7 years ago, I came away feeling more informed and certainly did not feel conned in any way.

If you'd like to know if would have taken 5 seconds on Youtube

There are plenty of videos about him...

5 seconds? First I had to sit through a 1-minute ad

only to find out it's a 30-minute ABC segment with Cynthia McFadden as the host?

And the comment section is disabled?

use ad-block?

You're response...

...to what egepele posted is Ad-Block? Really?

Im not saying he deserves

Im not saying he deserves life in prison, but he is a liar and a tool. If you got anything substantial out of his book you must have been really shallow. Only thing i got was a bunch of FCC wont let me say this so go here and subscribe, and ill let you know more better stuff there....and hes just out for money. I was a salesman and his whole vocabulary is set to SELL you something, not help you with anything. That in itself is not illegal, but flat out lying like he does in his infomercials is misleading and thus criminal.

The opposite is true, he exposes government lies.

You have not read his books.

Not sure if "shallow" is the right word, but I will say

I was completely uninformed about how badly food can affect the body and how food can reverse sickness and heal your body. I have always had extremely good health and maybe that is why I was so in the dark.

I am not ashamed to admit it. It was this guy's book that made me realize how little I knew and I set out to educate myself.

so evil.
