Frankos was NOT wrong and that has been my point in previous postings today. This letter by Taylor of the FDA is going to get someone in some hot water. Questions are going to be asked WHY they sent the letter and who influenced that decision? Was Ackman's finger prints on any of it?
Not sure why you keep repeating the same thing. I agree with you and I also said no one is claiming that and NO ONE in the video claimed that. You continue to make my point but you simply don't get it.
You are obviously entitled to your opinion, but everything that has happened has BA fingerprints all over it. I already gave you a long list of those that Ackman influenced.
You are a little thick skulled aren't you barry? You said, " They do not regulate or evaluate dietary supplements. " I simply said what do you think he was doing as the lead in the FDA's Dietary Supplement Program? NO ONE ever said, and he didn't say in the video that he did anything for HLF. You are dancing around now dude. Typical
To follow up dbarry,
You don't find this at all strange that this fairly generic video is 3 1/2 years old and JUST NOW it sends a letter the same day Ackman has another circus interview........and HOW did anyone get a copy of that letter so fast. It was WRITTEN and sent just 2 days ago, someone had to send it out to...." Ackman " for it to hit a blog so fast. WELL?????
Herbalife NEVER made such a claim. It's NOT in the video. Read everything, the FDA letter eludes to the fact that they have concerns people MIGHT think they did. MIGHT....really the FDA sends a letter based on MIGHT? Very thin ice on the part of the FDA.
Well let's see dbarry......
1) LULAC has no complaints about HLF until Ackman donates to their cause. FACT
2) Senator Markey sends letter to FTC......Ackman's office meets with Markey and has his letter BEFORE he even sends it. Donations to Markeys political future. 1 Victim Markey cited LIED about losing 130K.
3) Congresswoman Linda Sanchez also sends letter to authorities that Ackman has before hand and she is CAUGHT backdating the letter.
4) ABC does a big show about Herbalife and an apparent Whistleblower. ABC has to delete all his interview because they found out he LIED about being paid by Ackman.
5) Ackman ADMITS he has spend $50 million of PS investor money to dig up victims.
So do you really think it's not possible?
Dr. Frankos lead the FDA's Dietary Supplement Program. What do you think he was doing while in that capacity? This continues to reek of Ackman's stink digging up anything and everything he can find and spending millions of PS investor money for his personal gain and his EGO.
This means Ackman continues to spend millions to tear the company down and he sent it to them hoping for some action. They are pawns of PS.
The video in question was from April and this letter goes out 8 months after the fact and the same day Ackman does another circus act on TV...... Coincidence.........surely not.
Just goes to show you can't believe anything this clown says.
To follow up.....The letter written by the FDA was dated 12-17-14......Tell me how that letter gets out of a government agency and on to a blog in 2 days? If you read the entire thing it reeks of some nitpicking paid off government employee.
I think this Michael Taylor needs to be investigated for any possible connection to PS/ Bill Ackman. Seems all along, anyone who has voiced a concern has either received a donation from or been paid off by Ackman or an affiliate. eg. Markey, Sanchez, LULAC, Whistleblower. and on and on.
swami, from the FDA's letter
" In the video, former FDA director Vasilios H. Frankos, Ph.D., states that during his time at the agency he made sure that nutritional supplements were safe and effective for use. This is surprising since the FDA does not regulate dietary supplements. "
That's interesting since Dr. Vasilios Frankos lead the FDA's Dietary Supplement Program. Nowhere did HLF claim that the FDA approved any dietary supplements. Here is HLF's reply.
“Herbalife’s number one priority is producing the highest quality products possible. We take this responsibility very seriously and this is the reason Dr. Vasilios Frankos came to Herbalife after leading FDA’s Dietary Supplement Program," said Alan Hoffman, executive vice president of Herbalife's Global Corporate Affairs, in a statement. "All of the statements Dr. Frankos made in the advertisement in question were accurate and true. The only message Herbalife was conveying is that Dr. Frankos uses the 14 years of experience he gained at the FDA to ensure that Herbalife’s products are safe, efficacious and of the highest quality. Nothing more, nothing less.”
Ackman does not lack any logic in connecting the dots, he is purposely misleading to enhance his bet on the company. For the life of me I don't understand what part of the definition of Stock Manipulation the SEC doesn't get.
In Ackman's last interview just recently he once again claimed that 98% of all distributors FAIL which is a blatant lie. How does one fail when one is only buying for personal consumption. It's like telling everyone they are losers and failures because they go to the grocery store every week.
6 thumbs down from the boiler room crew. I am pleased that I have the attention of the Ackman crew. LMAO
Ackman doesn't have a smoking gun or for that matter anything at all. All he has is the same old spread fear and uncertainty to scare longs out of the stock. Proof, he pulls out an edited decade old video. Talk about desperation.
