Shopping for the Best Empower Network Sponsor?


If you dream of being a full-time Internet marketer, you'll quickly notice everthing looks shiny online trying to sell you this and that. You can go broke buying everthing.
I invested $50,000 my first year in trying to learn Internet marketing and at the end of the first year, I wasn't making anything. So, I want to shortcut your path to success if you are open. But, you have to be teachable.
After 3 years and well over $50k in buying courses, I became a full-time Internet marketer to the point where this year I was the Internet marketing consultant to a Presidential candidate. I have come a long way from my first stuggles.
I want to help you shortcut that process and save you time and money.
I have solved much of my challenge by plugging in to a system of Internet marketing training where the best of the best flock and show you step by step the path to online marketing success.
The shortcut is through the Empower Network, a system of training from Internet marketing millionaires who have gathered together to teach you how to market online in the shortest amount of time.
You can get started for as little as $25.
Not only do you have access to all the video recordings showing you step by step how the masters made it, but you'll have me on your side to make it even faster.
You can call me 24/7 on my voicemail or watch the video above where I reveal my actual cell phone number. Call me and change your life.

SEC Shuts Down Zeek Rewards and the Owner Paul Burks for Running Ponzi Scheme

Everything I wrote below was based on rumors and speculation as of yesterday, but the situation for Zeek Rewards and owner, Paul Burks, has escalated to the SEC coming down on Paul Burks personally. He is in serious trouble. He's accused of running a $600 million dollar Ponzi scheme. Here's the CNN Money story:

 The SEC post on the closing of Zeek Rewards:
The biggest challenge appears to be the daily commissions were coming from new recruits rather than the daily profit sharing on their penny auction site. There are two chances Zeek Rewards will reopen: slim & none.

At this point, the is a civil action and not a criminal action.

The following was written the day of the news where I'm trying to make sense of the breaking story. It's still worth reading even after the breaking news update above.
I just got a call from a friend involved in the Zeek Rewards business that runs the Zeekler penny auction site and he said that the SEC has shut them down. No other details were offered. They were closed on the afternoon of Thursday, August 16th, 2012. I'll put up more details as I learn them.

Seems like it's too early to say the SEC is involved, seems like this is a North Carolina matter, so forgive the title of this blog post.

The rumor is that the North Carolina Department of Justice, the NC DOJ,  has simply started an investigation. No charges or specific accusations have been officially made, rather it seems like they are simply doing an investigation because they've received 8 formal complaints and 23 inquiries over the past year, so they probably just want to open the books and see what's going on because Zeek has been so secretive about the actual numbers with the field. Sounds like this action is a Civil Investigative Demand, rather than a specific finding.
More thoughts from Troy Dooly, an mlm advocate:

If you are involved with the Zeek Rewards business, probably the best thing to do is to sit tight and wait to find out what the specifics are.

Will they make it through this? It's way too early to tell. They are probably well funded and they have worked hard in the compliance area for the last 6 months to avoid their current challenge. Amway's been around for nearly 60 years and they are still getting lawsuits to this day, so it doesn't mean that it's the end of the road, only that there is a hurdle that must be crossed.

It's interesting to note recently Zeek's COO, Dawn Wright-Olivares, has been replaced. She has worked with the owner, Paul Burks, for many years, so it's hard to make anything of it except that it does shake things up a little. An new temporary COO has come on Board as a replacement.

I saw the following on the site:

Update R. S. Foreman :

I took the initiative to CALL Roy Cooper's office (the North Carolina AG, whoose office issued the CID), I spoke with Gloria in Consumer Affairs, who said their switchboard has been lit up since opening their doors at 8:00 AM. She spoke on behalf of the AG and their office, and emphatically stated that in no way did they shut down Rex Venture Group, Zeekler, or ZeekRewards; that their office did NOT confiscate computers, nor did they issue a Cease and Desist Order. They have not scheduled the administrative hearing yet, and are at this stage simply awaiting a reply from Zeek and Rex Venture Group.

My contacts say North Carolina has a history of attacking mlms. They say that they know that they can get money out of any rising star company so they go after them in a shake down hoping the company will simply settle and give them some cash. That's sad if it's true. 8 formal complaints in a year seems like small potatoes to me. Also, there is plenty of turnover at all State Attorney General offices, so what was done in the past doesn't mean that their present staff has the same modus operandi.

Troy Dooly says that a Supreme Court Justice was an affiliate of Zeek Rewards, so in seems wise to lay off your friends with ridicule if they were involved with the company.

With our country and states being broke, nothing surprises me in this hyper regulatory environment. Obama states repeatedly if you are successful in business, you did it because government was your partner and that you owe your success to the collective. Frightening words to a person raised with the American Spirit of pulling yourself up by your own bootstraps. His words roll out with Marxist overtones that scare the hell out of entrepreneurs. He basically says that he's going to punish success.

Little girls lemonade stands are being shut down countrywide saying they have to be approved by the governement and health codes. After the relentless raids of businesses throughout the United States with government SWAT teams coming in with guns drawn on innocent workers, a chill is in the air for small businesses.

Just one look at the videos on YouTube were Obama's goons raided Gibson Guitar with guns drawn on the peaceful workers just quietly making guitars which they have done for over 100 years and it reminds of the horrors of other free countries when taken over by those that promise a brighter future by playing Robinhood.

Watch this terrifying raid with guns drawn at a health food company called Rawsome Foods:
Now, even little girls aren't allowed to sell lemonade without a business license:

Obama's Administration has called for Executive Privilege to coverup Eric Holder and his Department of Justice's involvement in shipping guns to Mexican drug lords while making the false claim that his is the "most transparent Administration" ever. To date, no one has been fired for running guns to Mexico's drug cartels.
Other shocking stories came out this week where the Obama Admin says they will not go after criminal charges for Jon Corzine who can't account for nearly 2 billion of losses for gambling with investors' money. Not only that, but they said there would be no criminal charges for Goldman Sachs taking junk mortgages and repackaging them and selling them as AAA paper around the world. Fraud is written all over that, but if you are tight with Obama as a bundler or supporter, you are above the Law.

One last example that is alarming...Wachovia Bank was caught red handed laundering billions in Mexican drug cartel money and even purchasing commercial jets to help them transport into the United States tons of cocaine. The Obama Administration said there would be no criminal charges, only a slap on the wrist of a small fine. Bankers are above the Law in the Obama Administration though he campaigned on cleaning up Wall Street. Right.

So, bottom line, let's wait for the details to come out in the Zeek Rewards - Zeekler investigation. It appears that the closing of the doors of Zeek Rewards and Zeekler was a voluntary action of the company and not a government takeover. It is only an investigation at this point.

A Zeek Rewards alternative is this new Penny Auction Affiliate Program.

History Unfolding

I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books on history that have been published in six languages, and I have studied history all my life. I have come to think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is simply a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes these exist, but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper focus..

Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten to fifteen years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.

We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people we know they can never pay back? Why?

We learned just days ago that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no real oversight by anyone, has "loaned" two trillion dollars (that is $2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months, but will not tell us to whom or why or disclose the terms. That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is three times the $700 billion we all argued about so strenuously just this past September. Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are the terms unavailable to us? Who asked for it? Who authorized it? I thought this was a government of "we the people," who loaned our powers to our elected leaders. Apparently not.

We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy... Why? We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity. Why?

We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election (violently in California over a proposition that is so controversial that it simply wants marriage to remain defined as between one man and one woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?) We have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges to write laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a banana republic. To what purpose?

Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of collapse, social security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare and our entire government. Our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college and I know precisely what I am talking about) - the list is staggering in its length, breadth, and depth.. It is potentially 1929 x ten...And we are at war with an enemy we cannot even name for fear of offending people of the same religion, who, in turn, cannot wait to slit the throats of your children if they have the opportunity to do so.

And finally, we have elected a man that no one really knows anything about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla , Alaska .. All of his associations and alliances are with real radicals in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we learn about him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders? No? Oh, of course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then demand he answer it. Sarah Palin's pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe are more important.)

Mr. Obama's winning platform can be boiled down to one word: Change. Why? I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now.

This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never, ever done in his professional life. In my assessment, Obama will divide us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to realign the pieces into a new and different power structure. Change is indeed coming. And when it comes, you will never see the same nation again.

And that is only the beginning..

As a serious student of history, I thought I would never come to experience what the ordinary, moral German must have felt in the mid-1930s In those times, the "savior" was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing. What they should have known was that he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great oratory. Conservative "losers" read it right now.

And there were the promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and frowned and waved a lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his "brown shirts" would bully and beat them into submission. Which they did - regularly. And then, he was duly elected to office, while a full-throttled economic crisis bloomed at hand - the Great Depression. Slowly, but surely he seized the controls of government power, person by person, department by department, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The children of German citizens were at first, encouraged to join a Youth Movement in his name where they were taught exactly what to think. Later, they were required to do so. No Jews of course. 

How did he get people on his side? He did it by promising jobs to the jobless, money to the money-less, and rewards for the military-industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe , and across the world. He did it with a compliant media - did you know that? And he did this all in the name of justice and .... . ... change. And the people surely got what they voted for.

If you think I am exaggerating, look it up. It's all there in the history books.

So read your history books. Many people of conscience objected in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and ridiculed. When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though. And the world came to regret that he was not listened to.

Do not forget that Germany was the most educated, the most cultured country in Europe . It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And yet, in less than six years (a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency) it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors.. All with the best of intentions, of course.. The road to Hell is paved with them.

As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence tell me (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can believe what history is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can hope I am wrong by closing my eyes, having another latte, and ignoring what is transpiring around me..

I choose to believe the evidence. No doubt some people will scoff at me, others laugh, or think I am foolish, naive, or both. To some degree, perhaps I am. But I have never been afraid to look people in the eye and tell them exactly what I believe-and why I believe it.

I pray I am wrong. I do not think I am. Perhaps the only hope is our vote in the next elections.

FYI; Peron did the same in Argentina.
