A while ago, I was sent the above links and asked to post an article about Donald Trump's fellow 'MLM Prosperity Gospel' parasite, Robert Kiyosaki.
Even the briefest examination of the available independent evidence, shows that Robert Kiyosaki is a world-class liar and economic alchemist. e.g. He featured in a hidden camera investigative report made by CBC's 'Marketplace' in 2010. This Canadian network television programme revealed that Kiyosaki was being paid to front a highly-organised, advance fee fraud. Victims of this criminal racket were first lured into handing over C$500 to attend a 'Robert Kiyosaki (approved) Rich Dad Real Estate Investment Seminar' where they were subjected to co-ordinated devious techniques of persuasion designed to get them to increase their credit card limits and hand over much larger sums (up to $45 000) supposedly to attend training courses where they would learn Kiyosaki's advanced secrets of obtaining wealth from real estate investment.
Meanwhile in the adult world of quantifiable reality, there is little evidence (other than that of his own manufacture) that Robert Kiyosaki has ever made any money from investing in real estate. There is, however, a veritable mountain of evidence to prove that Robert Kiyosaki has actually made his money by peddling an unoriginal (if I can do it then you can do it too, rags to riches) fairy story. Classically, Robert Kiyosaki has also duped various celebrity useful-idiots (like Oprah Winfrey).
When challenged on camera in 2010, Kiyosaki initially posed as an outraged victim of the media by claiming that the bully-boy tactics uncovered by CBC, were not approved by him, but were not typical.Then (when the interviewer revealed her knowledge of the involvement of a notorious charlatan, Russ Whitney), Kiyosaki suddenly admitted that, in fact, he knew full-well what was going on, but he still posed as an innocent victim.
Russ Whitney featured in a New York Times exposé back in 2007.
If the above pattern of ongoing major racketeering activity sounds familiar, it's because it is familiar.
