It’s so fun to probe Empower NetCult and discover that almost NOBODY there makes money, while the scanty few at the pyramid’s peak have a long history of conning, deceiving and just basically being total douches. Okay, maybe it’s not precisely fun-fun but really more fun-so-fucking-sad-fun.
Ironically, it’s pretty much the same kind of Via Dolorosa fun that Empower Network’s mind-fucked devotees are madly trying to fake.
I’ve already unveiled the immense piggishness of Vick “I Sorta Forgot to Return the Money I Stole” Strizheus, so now it’s time to shine the black light on another offshoot of Order Anoplura that has been feeding off the subsistence of innumerable hosts … Tony Rush.
Tony has been involved in the pyramidal biz for a looong time … and he knows that if you’d like to succeed in this sort of non-sustainable business model, you’ve got to swindle your way to the top … and blame his trail of barren “customers,” who would inevitably fail, for their inescapable failure.
You’re mistaken. A.L. William was NOT a fraud or a scam.
Now, it may be true that the representatives had to work very hard for their money and there may have been lots of people who had the money to get involved but didn’t have the work ethic it took to succeed.
Chances of succeeding in MLM are slim at best … and even flimsier when one wishes to maintain a semblance of integrity. But I suppose it’s easier to demean someone’s diligence rather than to say “You would have had a better luck meeting a nice chaste mermaid in a Shanghai brothel” (everybody knows that mermaids can’t stand the air pollution levels in China).
From there, Tony had proceeded to aggressively promote another pyramid disguised as “we’re cool like Lehman Brothers” (and had endured a similar fate) called Liberty League International. In 2006, LLI’s founders were ordered to pay a $115,000 fine by the Attorney General of Arizona for being misguiding dicks and in 2009 they were sued in a $5 million class action for being even bigger misguiding dicks.
Even though Tony Rush played a huge part in distributing the Liberty League International scam, he was left out of the lawsuits … which afforded him the ill begotten opportunity to begin erecting other pyramids as well.
Shortly after the $5 million lawsuit against LLI, the company was rebranded as Polaris Media Group … because changing the name is just a shameless easy way to replace the old stained wrapping with a flashy new one, while the rancid shit inside remains exactly the same rancid shit. Obviously, Tony Rush was on board.
Tony Rush with Polaris Media Group is the smoothest talker ever to scam an entire group of people. He does the slickest southern I’m just a hick routine while he is laughing on the way to the bank.
Later on, apparently, Tony somehow became some sort of financial expert when he started to market silver and gold coins for the pointy ended company Numis Network. Tony doesn’t have any financial background, education, experience or even any remote connection to the world of economics … but in the pyramid biz the only thing that really matter is your downline.
If you want to learn nothing about numismatic coins and everything about losing your underpants to the MLM succubus, watch the following Tony Rush video:
[Update: Tony Rush took down the video because ... wait for it ... he's a wussie.]
Around the same time Tony had morphed himself into a fake financial genie, he also commenced with the “OMG, you must join this totally life changing opportunity NOW NOW NOW NOW” promotion of another (surprise!) MLM company, Avant. Here’s a nice review of Avant where everybody is making fun of Tony in the comment section.
Pure marketing B.S. Hype. Smoke. Mirrors.
Tony is obviously selling the system. Recruiting recruiters. By the way, Tony has an inside deal with Avant. He makes money by selling you the system of autoresponders and splash pages that he says are converting at 50%. That’s the real reason Tony is there.
Tony likes to build pyramids … exclusively pyramids where he sits at the top and earns from the hapless losses of others. A.L. Williams, Liberty League International, Polaris Media Group, Numis Network, Avant, Empower Network … all shady pyramid schemes, all have incurred irreparable heavy financial and emotional damages and all have been manipulatively promoted by Tony Rush.
How can Tony live with himself? According to Tony, it’s kinda like a gym … or something. It’s hard to say what exactly because it’s all very stupid. And nonsensical. And purely self-justifying sociopathic. Or in other words … classic Tony.
