In the turds-of-a-feather category...
I suppose it was inevitable. Ed Foreman, former Republican Congressman and loyal long-time pal of imprisoned serial scammer Kevin Trudeau (aka KT, aka Katie), has apparently written a letter to
Not-My-President Donald J. Trump, begging him to pardon Katie for
the criminal contempt of court charges for which Katie is currently serving a ten-year prison
sentence in a relatively cushy Federal Prison Camp (FPC
Montgomery, Alabama). Or, lacking a full pardon, Ed implores
Trump to release Katie from prison, as he has, according to Ed,
"been punished enough."
The letter, posted to a new blog, "Stand With
KT," repeats all of the
distortions, rationalizations, excuses and outright lies that
Katie, his legal team and his legions of fans and followers have
been repeating for years. (Here's a February 2016 Whirled blog post that calls out some of those lies and addresses some
of the legal and moral contexts.)
Essentially -- and this will come as absolutely no
surprise to anyone who has been following the Trudeau saga --
Ed's plea frames Katie's struggle as a heroic one and Katie as a
martyr to an overreaching, tyrannical government and an unjust
legal system. It also cites a "biased Judge,"
playing right into Trump's own disdain for judges who have ruled
against Trump. As well, it indicts the evil mainstream media who
are constantly distorting things, which again panders to Trump's
own mediaphobia. It heavily plays the sympathy card too, and of
course wouldn't have been complete without a hearty dose of
sycophancy towards the Orange Emperor.
Kevin loves America, and has been a
tireless champion for Free Speech and the US Constitution. He
has been one of your biggest supporters and fans. When you
announced your candidacy for President he immediately said
you would win and did many things behind the scenes to
promote your victory...
Kevin himself has also petitioned Drumpf
directly, as documented on another post on the Stand With KT blog. And here is a direct link to his letter, which is more of the same old same-old and includes
the obligatory brown-nosing of Drumpf.
...During his more than 3 years of imprisonment both his
mother and father passed away. And he was not even allowed to
attend their funerals! He has been punished enough.
I am asking you, in fact I am pleading with you for your
consideration, compassion and understanding to Pardon Kevin
Trudeau or at least commute his sentence to time served and
have him released immediately.
Having worked closely with 5 US Presidents, I can say with
compete confidence, that you will be one of, if not THE,
greatest Presidents of all time.
You have my complete support in every way, and I know you
will always have Kevin's complete loyalty and support
You are a brilliant business person and a
marketing genius. You have dealt with state AG's, government
regulators, and lawsuits. You know what it is like to have
false allegations and misleading statements made about you in
the media, in court papers, and on the internet.
You were wrongfully attacked about Trump University, and had
to deal with a "biased judge", untrue media
reports, and lies about you and Trump U. You will "get
this" better than anyone.
But again... who didn't see this coming? Since Trump himself is such a major scammer (one whom Salty Droid began nailing years ago), and since Katie has on numerous occasions expressed
admiration for Trump (as have several of Katie's fans and
followers, such as notorious "coach" Coral Grant), it's only natural that some of Katie's cronies would
actively petition Trump to free their hero. And it's no big surprise that Katie himself would do some petitioning on his own behalf.
After all, Trudeau lost his appeals in the lower courts, and in December 2016 the Supreme Court of the United States made the choice not to hear his case. (Here's them, thumbing their collective noses at him, or more accurately, having one of their clerks do it.) Over the years, Katie and some of the principals of his numerous shell companies have spent millions and millions and millions of dollars (of Trudeau's as well as other people's money) beating what amounts to a legal dead horse, in recent years trying desperately to buy Katie's freedom. And they've done this despite Katie's numerous Facebook posts about how blissfully happy he is in Camp Cupcake (his nickname for the prison camp in which he is languishing).
And so, having failed in his attempts with the judiciary, he is now appealing to the executive branch. But he's not doing so as a "wronged" citizen appealing to the pretend leader of the free world, so much as a lifelong swindler appealing to a fellow swindler. At its essence Kevin Trudeau's missive to Donald Trump is a desperate plea for professional courtesy.
The Stand With KT blog isn't moderated, yet, though I suspect it soon
will be, in light of the fact that I chose to join the

remains, and a few others have been added since then.]
There's also a new web site (which I found
out about from Bernie O'Mahony of GINtruth fame -- thanks,
Bernie!), which is a call to action for Katie's dimwitted fans to
inundate Herr Drumpf with pleas.
There are several other recommended tactics,
including sending Instagram messages to Drumpf, sending daily
messages on Drumpf's Facebook page, calling the White House daily
and leaving "a message for the president to free Kevin
Trudeau," and so forth, and doing all of the above as often as you possibly
can during the next 30 days -- and, of course, sending money to
Katie's Legal Defense Fund. It's all in the service of saving
"our right to Free Speech."

Katie's old cohort and scam partner Lee Kenny, who is safely in the UK away from all US government
harassment, wrote a post on the Kevin Trudeau Facebook fan page on 9
February, urging people to get involved
in Project Free Katie. (I have removed all of the embedded links from Lee's message and added one of my own: a link to the Kevin Trudeau '"facts" section, which once again is a repetition of the same old misrepresentations, distortions and bald-faced lies.)
Kevin has asked if we can help him in a
30-day massive action push to have his sentence pardoned, or
at least reduced to time served.
"All-expenses paid break in
Alabama"... heh. Also, I'd take that claim about Trudeau being a
"hair's breadth away" from Obama's final
pardons list with a huge grain of salt too. By the way, here's Bernie O, responding to a
misguided soul on Facebook who shared the new KT web site link.
I have been working with the wonderful Ed Foreman and key
behind the scenes people to create a 30-day massive action
plan to highlight Kevin's cause to President Trump, the most
obvious person who has the power to get Kevin released.
Social media has the ability to play a huge role in taking
this all the way and will be done in concert with offline
We will be encouraging you to use the #FreeKevinTrudeau
message in this 30 day push on Twitter and Facebook to raise
Kevin has also created an official website that just launched
It is certainly not the finished article, and will have
information added daily. Make sure you read the Kevin Trudeau facts section which goes in to granular detail about why
Kevin is currently taking an all-expenses paid break in
Alabama! This has already been sent to President Trump.
For many, many reasons now is the time to focus the energy on
this and help Kevin. When I tell you we were a hair's breadth
away from being on Obama's final pardon's [sic] list, you
should be encouraged. If you can play your part, in any small
way, it will be appreciated and acknowledged

Apparently the minions are obeying the directive and are trying to communicate directly with Drumpf. I don't know which is more pathetic: their requests to the Scammer in Chief to free a fellow scammer, or their belief that Trump is actually an advocate of free speech.
But whether or not Trump will respond
favorably to Katie and his fans, or will even acknowledge their harassment, is another matter entirely. After all, we have no
evidence (yet) that Katie's passion for Drumpf is at all
requited. Unlike the situation with Trudeau and convicted killer James Arthur "Death" Ray, who gleefully
promoted Katie's scams while Katie defended Ray (and Katie's scammy brainchild GIN even featured Ray as a
keynote speaker in 2015), I've yet to
see any indication that Donald Trump is an admirer of Kevin
Trudeau or that he has even heard of him.
Certainly Drumpf has many other important things on his mind, such as tweeting, pissing off other
nations, signing our rights away, and
so forth. Who's to say when or if he will turn his attention to a Scamworld colleague who got caught and actually punished for scamming? Maybe he'll dismiss Trudeau as a "loser." Winners don't get caught. In any case I'll keep you posted on any developments in the
Trumpdeau saga, and of course you're free to do your own research
too, and give me a heads-up if you see anything. We all help each

PS ~ Trudeau isn't the only scummy scammer whose
dimwitted fans seem to think that Herr Drumpf will exercise his
superpowers on behalf of their dubious hero. Not-Doctor Leonard
Coldwell, ex-b.f.f. of Kevin Trudeau, once again landed in
Facebook jail for 30 days after being reported for hate speech
(again). After he was released from jail he once again claimed
that the blocking happened because he was "fighting for
Trump." As you'll see in the second screen grab below, one
fan suggested that now that Drumpf is in power, Facebook (which
the fan doesn't seem to realize is a privately owned company that
has every legal right to set its own "community
standards" of what is and is not allowable speech) will no
longer be allowed to block LoonyC. Um, that's not the way it
