Hillary Clinton Targeted in Deceptive Ads Promoting Fake Cancer Cures

While Trump hasn’t run many ads attacking Clinton, advertising claiming that Hillary Clinton is going to drop out has started to appear on thousands of websites, including several neo-nazi and neo-conference conspiracy sites. The advertising, claim that Hillary Clinton is going to drop out of the race as “soon as tomorrow” claim to have a video that Hillary Clinton “never wanted to see” and would force her from the White House.

The advertising, seeming political in nature, would seem to come from perhaps Trump or the GOP. However, they don’t – and they are both deceptive, illegal and fraudulent in my opinion.

What are they? They are actually advertising for a fake medical center called the “Health Science Institute,” a health center that sells “underground treatment” advice via hard direct marketing sells that are often seen with “get rich quick” scams.

What they are selling is “membership” in their “Institute,” for the price of $74, so you can learn about secrets of “underground health.”

So what’s the problem?

According to Mother Jones, the HSI, “part of a company called NewMarket Health, which is just one asset of a Baltimore-based publishing empire named Agora Inc. Agora’s subsidiaries and affiliates publish more than 40 newsletters and sell more than 300 books on a range of topics, including biblical health tips, natural-healing supplements, and “insider” investment advice—a mix of ideas the company considers the intellectual equivalent of the marketplace of ancient Athens. To find new readers for its ever-expanding catalog of publications, Agora’s subsidiaries have tapped into a network of conservative heavyweights, including Huckabee, Ron Paul, and Newt Gingrich, who sell access to their massive email lists to advertise Agora’s products.”

The article lists multiple examples of deceptive and fraudulent advertising, and that despite making weird claims including that Hillary Clinton is going to kill us, these ads continue to run.

The ad itself is clearly deceptive and fraudulent – has nothing to do with the product, not even remotely based in truth and had a FAKE video that you can’t really click on it.

This is deceptive, unethical, immoral and frankly in my opinion fraudulent. What they are doing has gotten them in trouble before, and this is clearly crosses the line by making fraudulent claims that are unproven and fake.
