‘Hillary’s Secret Revenge’

Donald Trump may say he is retiring “Crooked Hillary” as a moniker for his former presidential opponent but the internet hasn’t. Take the above ad, sent in by a reader who said he saw it on a gun broker’s website.

The ad links to a video that claims to reveal some controversial information about how Hillary Clinton rigged the 2016 election way back in 1993 when she and a group of “corporate fat cats” formed what the narrator refers to as the “Clinton Cartel.” Points for alliteration but as you may recall, Clinton didn’t win the election so that doesn’t make a heck of a lot of sense. But it’s that lack of logic that sets the stage for a conspiracy-ridden video that, over the course of an hour, makes less sense as it goes along.

Eventually, the video arrives at an offer for a one-year membership to the Health Sciences Institute (HSI), a publishing company that says it’s “dedicated to uncovering and researching the most urgent advances in modern underground medicine.” But that’s not before a series of conspiracy theories are spouted about how the Clinton Cartel and Big Pharma have colluded in a multi-billion-dollar scheme to keep you sick and prevent you from seeking natural cures for cancer, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, dementia, diabetes, and more.

The “31,747 DEAD in 2017” in the ad refers to the number of seniors that the video claims will die this year from prescription drugs. But it doesn’t have to be this way, the video says. In fact, natural cures for all these diseases are available in three books that HSI wants to give to you for free. Only they’re not free. They come with the cost of membership at $74 a year, and this membership automatically renews every year unless you cancel.

And there’s plenty of reasons to be skeptical about HSI’s miracle health claims. Take this slide in the video where HSI’s purported cancer cure, sour honey, was inserted into a doctor’s quote about his cancer patients:

In addition, a customer review in the video that appears similar to Amazon reviews is not listed on Amazon’s site. The reviewer, Deb, credited one of the books, “Miracles from the Vault,” with curing a severe case of bronchitis.

Finally, for all the anti-establishment rhetoric, this disclaimer on HSI’s website says it all:

No content is intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

This is not the first time has alerted readers to one of HSI’s videos. Before it was “Queen Hillary” in cahoots with Big Pharma, it was “King Obama.”
