Who’s Really Smearing Who? VanderSloot is No Victim

The Idaho Statesman dedicated a large portion of its front page feeding the allegation by Frank VanderSloot that he is a victim of an alleged smear campaign backed by President Obama.

The May 18 article, “Idaho businessman VanderSloot says Obama is smearing him,” by Sean Cockerham lacked balance and simply aided VanderSloot in whitewashing his indisputable public anti-gay record.

Cockerham wrote, “VanderSloot was featured in an April 20 post on the Obama Truth Team website” describing VanderSloot as “litigious, combative and a bitter foe of the gay rights movement.”

Fact Check: VanderSloot was not “featured” on the post Fox News has been branding as an Obama “enemies” list. The two-sentence paragraph at the page’s bottom, says nothing new and, in fact, has been reported several times before, including in McClatchy’s October 21, 2011 Idaho Statesman.

VanderSloot’s public relations team is feeding a narrative to the media that this multi-millionaire is an innocent private citizen under attack by President Obama simply because he donated $1 million to Romany’s Super PAC, Restore Our Future.

Let’s be clear about something, Frank VanderSloot is not a private citizen, he forfeited that standing when he placed himself in the public arena as Romney’s co-chairman of finance in both 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns.

VanderSloot is feeling the sting of his actions, both past and present, and is now casting blame on Obama to divert attention away from his own record and behavior.

In the summer of 1999 VanderSloot publicly protested the airing of It’s Elementary, a documentary developed to educate teachers and parents on how to address anti-gay stigma in the classroom, on Idaho Public Television.

His response was to erect 25 billboards across the state. Cockerham reported, “VanderSloot helped pay for statewide billboards,” but he omitted the towering proactive message of the billboards that read, “Should public television promote the homosexual lifestyle? Think about it!,” The reporter failed to put the issue in its proper context.

Fact Check: The Idaho Falls Post-Register, reported in August 1999 that VanderSloot didn’t simply “help,” but actually “spearheaded” the billboard campaign. Idaho Statesmen also reported October 21, 2011 that, “VanderSloot bought [the] 25 billboards.”

Despite VanderSloot’s earlier claims “others” contributed to the billboards, he never revealed them or their contributions.

VanderSloot told Cockerham he was, “mischaracterized by his critics,” yet the reporter neglected to include the viewpoint of any gay Idahoan.

As one of those very Idahoan’s active on LGBT issues, I can emphatically report that the LGBTA community still consider VanderSloot’s billboards to be despicable, blatantly homophobic, and hurtful.

VanderSloot told the Idaho Statesman that he is not anti-gay, “I’ve got several gay friends…traveled the world with gay people…I respect them. They respect and love me. For some I have great admiration for…their work ethic.”

Juxtaposed to his actions, VanderSloot’s remarks are as insulting as they are hollow.

Fact Check: Rachel Maddow reported May 15 that VanderSloot discussed It’s Elementary on The O’Reilly Factor Aug. 11, 1999. VanderSloot told O’Reilly the film was “propaganda” and described homosexuality as, “contrary to the moral standards of our community and nation.”

VanderSloot also said he objected to the film bringing, “the homosexual lifestyle into the classroom and introduce it to our children as being normal, right, acceptable, and good,” and “any child watching this film will conclude that this homosexual lifestyle is correct.”

How do VanderSloot’s own words hold up against his new media campaign that he is not anti-gay? Has VanderSloot really evolved on gay issues or is he just shape shifting for business or political purposes?

VanderSloot still dances around his company’s paid ad, made to look like an editorial, outing then Idaho Falls Post-Register reporter, Peter Zuckerman which put Zuckerman’s safety in jeopardy and got his partner fired from his job.

Cockerham failed to include VanderSloot’s monetary and in-kind donations to Proposition 8 that took away existing marriage equality rights from California same-sex couples.

VanderSloot offered his Melaleuca company call center to make, “call after call to California voters” urging Californians to vote to pass Prop 8. (Boise Weekly Oct 22, 2008).

His wife, Belinda, donated $100,000 to Protect Marriage, the organization that put Prop 8 on the ballot and the rights of minority citizens up for a vote. How is that not anti-gay?

VanderSloot can not erase his record or the damage he has done to the LGBTA community in Idaho and beyond. His latest public relations campaign is a cynical attempt to scrub his homophobic image – not unlike the many Etch-A-Sketch moments illustrated by Romney’s campaign.

VanderSloot recently claimed on Fox News that his troubles began when the Obama campaign put him on the “enemies list” April 20, that is another falsehood.

Fact Check: It was Glenn Greenwald’s Feb 17 Salon.com piece that went viral and landed on Rachel Maddow’s show Feb 21, not the two sentences in the April 20 keepinggophonest.com blog post VanderSloot claims has been so damaging to him and his company.

Frank VanderSloot has only himself to blame for his flawed image and that his anti-gay record escaped beyond the boundaries of Idaho where his legal team is no longer able to control his image by threatening journalists who published unflattering commentary about his record.

The point here is that this would not have made it to Salon.com or the Rachel Maddow Show if VanderSloot’s attorneys didn’t send me and other Idaho bloggers letters demanding we pull our stories.

In my view, it is VanderSloot that made his anti-gay record into a national story, not the Obama campaign. 

For Mr. VanderSloot and his public relations campaign to paint him as a victim is laughable.

    MY MELALEUCA SAGA… logo

    My “TEAM” built a Multi-Million-Dollar + business over a sixteen year period. Truth is, I grew sick and tired of the “Complication Plan™ continuous changes in the compensation plan, take-aways, the Mela-culture,discrimination concerns, negative press LGBT ISSUES Supporting Gay Marriage Ban Responsible Journalism or Misleading Propaganda?

    yes3 (2)

    Melaleuca’s litigious history, Franks political stance, suppression of the peoples constitutional rights, bullying, all of it!” I remember attending a Melaleuca corporate event that hundreds of us “ME’s” attended … Frank VanderSloot was soliciting his political cause asking us all to in attendance to get in our wallets out and give to the“Romney,pac… our choice of course“Not Odd At All!” However, Frank’s negative take on “Borracho Obama” was very unsettling … I personally didn’t care for his presentation or antics whatsoever! And in a split room of key leaders, Well, Frank’s actions were foolish at best…, ‘SMH! One thing I was clear on, I wanted no part of; Frank VanderSloot and/or Mitt Romney in power together. The average person has no idea of the implications of that force. Besides, I love Obama! I’ll be ready for change in 2016 “May the first lady win!” ~KK

    Back to the complication plan (I’ll cover more of that other farce later) Next I documented Melaleuca’s deceptive [Residual Income Claims] i.e. Check Copies, reports etc. Here’s what I proved about Mela’s [RBI™] scheme. If you don’t “Pander” to the “Recruiting-Requirements” your so-called “Residual Income” from your Matrix, MLM-group, downline~tree will go to “0” Yup a “BIG FAT “0″ In 90 days or less. My commission check’s dropped from around $7,500.00 monthly to well-under $200 hundred monthly,. In other words, “you can’t stop recruiting, infact it’s mathematically impossible for most (ME’s) to hit the executive and/or corporate positions! (“Hello!”) “Don’t Drink The Kool-Aid!”

    Facts are facts, and if you stop recruiting… your “Non-recruit-income™/ residual” will likely not cover your product orders regardless of the size of your Mela-business. CHECK IT!… Check your [TRI™] true residual income.) Here’s how you CHECK IT! Stop recruiting for 90 days, I dare ya.. and if you “CHECK IT!…please come share, I coined it “NoRecruitNoPay™” However, you may be paid on your (PE’s)”Personal Enrollments” capped at $100.00 w/o recruiting-points™ in most cases. Refer to “Mela’s Compensation Plan”… aka “The Complication Plan” I first heard the term at a melaleuca event. You can’t make this stuff up.

    “Bottomline, at Melaleuca, you get paid for recruiting and helping others recruit! “Recruits=Pay!” #NoRecruitNoPay™ I truly don’t understand how Melaleuca…. flies under the radar on this issue? What a travesty of justice – Hence, complete sham! Think it’s the “We’re not MLM” fairy-dust portal… that keeps Melaleuca in compliance, and under the radar… or soft-money, you decide? Maybe it’s Trolls?

    I pray the FTC, investigates my concerns…. and resolve this sham once and for all! FTC *how many people do you have to recruit? “You drinking the Kool-Aid?” 🙂

    Wait, there’s more… around three months after I documented Melaleuca’s [TRI™] I got canned with a phone call from “alan pariser” (note lower case) Get this, “pariser” had the nerve to threaten me with a restraining order! Symbolic of Melaleuca’s culture… Again, don’t take my word for it, CHECK IT!~> Melaleuca Restraining Orders Super duper comp plan changes I was smart enough to understand Melaleuca breached our contract with his shameless sham. I never cashed his checks after that change. (I call it the “BIG MELA BANG™” ) We made Frank vanderSloot one of the most wealthiest men in the world… and are reward is Melaleuca’s manipulating and/or leveraging our own legal system to molest us of our dignity and constitutional rights! “That’s how I see it – and I’m on point! ~KK (CHECK IT!)

    Get this.. recently Melaleuca made ruthless, despicable, targeted and aggressive changes to the “complication plan” essentially pirating the plan, striping it of it’s promised rewards, “effectively taking from the little-guy” and giving to the players,…and the guys at the top of the “MLM pyramid structure” Many of us (ME’s) marketing executives either had to scramble and roundup new recruits and/or directors,”customers with eight customers” or our recruiting checks would be cut – in half or more in many cases. What’s even more insane and deceptive then that is ‘Frank VanderSloot, Melaleuca, and his management team fed it to the field as a epic enhancement, Right! Truth be told the changes were nothing more then robbing Peter to pay Paul… Petter, being the noncompliant, (ME) whom just may need to turn down the recruiting and/or may no longer have the belief, will or desire to recruit like a machine gone wild. And of course age and illness are huge factors as well… Bottomline, this was indeed a the “Tipping-Point” for me… I decided at that moment I wouldn’t be drinking the Kool-Aid any longer. I never cashed a Mela-check after that day.My pandering days for Frank, and his MLM/Melaleuca were over! (90 days later my residual income had dropped to “0” on a two million dollar plus annual business. The only good part of it all is I documented everything along the way… Frank VanderSloot, Melaleuca, alan pariser, and the management machine all practice deceptive, misleading, ruthless, cunning business practices. Rotten? you better believe it! Check it! (39: Idaho: Frank VanderSloot: $1.2 billion – CEO of Melaleuca) (39: Idaho: Frank VanderSloot: $1.2 billion – CEO of Melaleuca)

    After I was terminated via phone call by “alan pariser” Frank’s golden-boy henchman of sorts. btw – Melaleuca denies this fact of course… real shocker! Melaleuca, stopped my $123.00 “NoRecruitNoPay” checks, and continued hitting my bank account for BOGUS fees relating to the Melaleuca business… i.e, International fees and reports, so.. I called my bank which happens to be Melaleuca’s bank i.e., Wells Fargo, and filed a formal complaint. The following day, Wells Fargo sided with me and credited my account back for two separate charges. However, Melaleuca. Inc. hit my account a third time! So of course I had to jump through all the hoops again.., call Wells Fargo, and melaleuca a second time, I was livid! You can’t make this stuff up.. ‘Ridiculous’ all *Documented With “Wells Fargo” and Melaleuca. CHECK IT..TWICE.. and don’t drink the Kool-Aid! :)’ ~e~ Melaleuca bank charge complaints.

    footnote; alan pariser is at the top of MLM/ Matrix/scheme and/or very close to the top… I believe it’s safe to say pariser never loses… he always gets the “Rollup Gravy” Check it!”

    “When “alan pariser” called and terminated me… I said to him; does this mean I don’t get my $123.00 checks any more? ) He doesn’t like folks like me to expose his hogwash in public and replace it with truth and facts! He went on a rant ” you did this to yourself…. you could of had that $10’000’00 monthly residuals for life.” Quack, Quack, Quack…!!! Again, you can’t make this stuff up! I’m just not that good at fiction… Albeit, I am a good student, and I have a great sense of Quackery… So, then I asked “pariser” if he understood the fact that he was aiding in the violation of human rights? However, “He sees things differently.” That’s when I told him he had no soul! “alan pariser” once told me that his father hates Melaleuca, and he believes it is nothing but a Scam…”Put me on a put me on a polygraph …. no concerns whatsoever! Integrity is my most valuable trait…. that was very telling of his father! My personal belief is; – “alan pariser” is likely the most Pretentious, Arrogant, Troll I have ever met. ~KK

    “I pray for just relief… and may the Feds discover for themselves what’s really going on at Melaleuca, Inc.” ~KK

    “People say you can get in but you can never get out! Think about it…. Melaleuca sues it’s own distributors when they have had enough and leave. Most go competing MLM’s, why? it simple… because Melaleuca is a “MLM” that’s what they know and have mastered! Frank VanderSloot, battles to strip us of our rights, and silence his defectors. Truth is, he get’s away with it because he has deep pockets from people like me who he destroys with his shameless, hurtful practices. CHECK it.. I made it easy for you ~> Melaleuca lawsuits, discrimination, complaints, harassments, denies all ties to MLM, Melaleuca silences it’s critics Melaleuca RipOff Report

    Keynote; The travesty of injustices that Melaleuca has gotten away with clearly exemplifies the over reaching and the abusing of our legal system, Sad truth is – the very system in place to protect us, he leverages to cripple and silence us ‘defectors, very effectively, indeed! nothing like calling on you buddies… and other Corporate tools to silence the “little guy” The MLM injustice machine must be demobilized as a matter of our childrens futures and freedoms! ~KK

    My guess is, any 3rd grader could distinguish the difference between a traditional business model and a “MLM”multi-level marketing scheme…. So I ask the FTC. to consider that concept and classify Melaleuca properly…as the MLM pay scheme it is…Thus, not allowing further misrepresentation and/or misleading of the public by coining it’s MLM compensation scheme something other then the MLM it is…calling it anything other then MLM is pure hogwash…. And deceptive as well! ‘Veil Of Deception‘

    Re: Ken Klocke, Case #10405883

    Dear Ms. Gillihan:
    We recently received a notice from your office regarding a concern expressed by Ken Klocke.Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention and allowing us the opportunity to respond.

    Mr. Klocke enrolled as an Independent Marketing Executive in January 1998 and remained a Marketing Executive until his voluntary resignation in 2014. During that period, Melaleuca paid Mr. Klocke a total of $2,176,861 in commissions. Melaleuca’s Independent Marketing Executive Agreement entitled Mr. Klocke to receive commissions as long as he abided by Melaleuca’s Statement of Policies.

    In May 2014, Melaleuca received allegations and documentation that Mr. Klocke was attempting to recruit Melaleuca Customers and Marketing Executives to another business venture, which is a violation of Policy 20 of Melaleuca’s Statement of Policies. On May 22, 2014, Melaleuca’s Policy Administration sent Mr. Klocke a letter notifying him of the allegations and requested his response to those allegations. To date, Melaleuca has never received a response from Mr. Klocke about the allegations. Instead, rather than respond, on June 18, 2014, Mr. Klocke simply submitted his voluntary resignation. (A copy of Mr. Klocke’s resignation letter is attached for reference.) Melaleuca complied with Mr. Klocke’s request and cancelled his account.

    In light of Mr. Klocke’s voluntary resignation, Policy Administration did not proceed with any investigation of potential contract or policy violations. Mr. Klocke’s customer account has remained inactive since June 2014. To our knowledge, Mr. Klocke has never tried to contact Melaleuca since then. Until your notice informing us of his complaint, we were unaware that Mr. Klocke had any concerns. Since receiving your notice, Melaleuca has tried to reach out several times to Mr. Klocke to learn more about his concerns. To date, he has not answered or returned any of our calls.

    Some of Mr. Klocke’s allegations in his complaint to the BBB are puzzling to us. For example, his assertion that Alan Pariser terminated him simply cannot be true. We know Mr. Pariser is an Independent Marketing Executive in good standing with Melaleuca. But Mr. Pariser has never been an employee of Melaleuca and could never have had authorization to terminate Mr. Klocke. Since Mr. Klocke has not returned our phone calls to date we have been unable to learn any more about that allegation. To our knowledge Mr. Klocke simply resigned.

    (So pariser should be terminated and/penalized for terminating me! acting as a employee without proper authority – clearly misrepresenting Melaleuca, with selfish intent!)

    ” A source of mine informed me that the plot and fashion behind “alan pariser’s” (Sloppy) termination of me was self-serving, you see “Terminating me/ in the fashion they did… allowed “alan- pariser” to retain me as a personal enrollment for one year… thus allowing “pariser” to count me as a personal enrollment towards his next advancement earning him a $300’000.00 + advancement check! And of course allowing Melaleua, Inc. the opportunity to showcase “Their Glitter boy” at the 2014 international convention…. receiving $300,000.00 bonus check “creating an illusion of success, grandeur,and doability….Misleading a sea of spellbound “wannabes” In fact, “alan pariser” has a history of such activity…, he and Melaleuca have staged such “Grand Illusions before, meaning “The Golden Boy” has been allowed to count past terminations in prior advancements…. isn’t that special! Three letters “FTC” one word “Investigation“Now, ‘Mr Wayne Billman, Sir’… Mr. Director of Customer Care and Business Development “Doesn’t that scenario fit the facts a whole lot better?!? And with all due respect Wayne… Frank, breached my contract when he and Melaleuca molested the compensation plan, stripping its promised value at five directors! furthermore, I never signed in to that farce, meaning, I cashed none of my big $100-200 recruiting checks after that blatant molestation of promised benefits. Check your facts, check them twice!

    Indeed your “glitter boy” (ap) would never do wrong with his stellar reputation… I believe pariser and Melaleuca have wrongfully benefited off the backs of other good souls that have been wrongfully terminated and/or driven out of Melaleuca one way or another as well! Check it!”

    Frank VanderSloot quoted it well ” The guy at the top always wins and the guy at the bottom always loses.” Indeed Sir. you would know!

    page 2 of 2 of Melaleuca, reply to BBB

    His voluntary resignation was the only response that we have received to the allegations that he had breached Melaleuca’s policy. Had he disputed the allegations, Melaleuca would have done a complete review and investigation of the facts before taking any disciplinary action.

    We have reached out on several occasions to contact Mr. Klocke to discuss any potential resolution to any legitimate concerns he may have. To date, Mr. Klocke has failed to respond to us in any way. If you have any further questions, you may contact Melaleuca.

    Sincerely, “Wayne Billman”
    Director of Customer Care and Business Development

    btw, “Wayne Billman” Ask your golden boy… what happened to my enroller Dave Rizzo? Hmmm… David, just quietly went away… no good buy or nothing! “10g fact or fiction?” wonder if David got a 1099…?

    Let me (KK) clear things up here. I called Melaleuca and disputed the bogus fees charged by them and I made it crystal-clear that after I was terminated by “alan pariser” via phone…that it was unconscionable that Melaleuca continue to hit my account for bogus charges. Melaleuca records all calls so it will be interesting to see if those specific calls are on record? Also not once did the phone agent deny I was terminated! I sense a “Whitewash” in progress here.

    Furthermore, I called Melaleuca on the first of February 2015 and was on the phone for a lengthy time… I asked if anyone from Melaleuca was trying to contact me? because I had a Melaleuca call on my caller id … she “the customer service rep put me on hold for several minutes… came back and said; sorry sir I can’t find anything here in customer service. I suggested several things like… check with the legal department, I was put on hold again… she came back, ‘sorry sir I can’t find anything here! Well, well, well…. ain’t that something! Quackery, Wackery… they have more holes in their story then I can keep track of! “Whitewash”and I’d love a three-way call with “The golden boy… I want to personally hear him perjure, lie, and try to whitewash the truth about his terminating me via phone call.

    Note: I did terminate my customer account a month or two later after “alan pariser – terminated me “ONLY BECAUSE OF BOGUS, continual charges to my account for – International fees, monthly report fees.. I stated in my termination letter that I was resigning my customer account under much duress and without prejudice!! “One thing holds true… Melaleuca has it’s own rule-book! Check it!

    ————————————————————————————————————————————

    Now, let’s talk about my *BBB complaint and their response! “We have closed this complaint as invalid.” Surprise, surprise, surprise…SMH! “shaking my head” “Go sell your Ratings-,” we aren’t MLM fiction!” We need the #FTC to decide if Melaleuca is misleading the public with the tales of we aren’t MLM “Respectfully ~KK (get MLM Attorney Kevin Thompson’s professional point of view on the subject of why Melaleuca “is” indeed a MLM! How others feel about Melaleuca not being MLM.

    “Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.” – Albert Einstein. “Melaleuca claiming to not be “MLM” is no small matter.” ~KK

    Dear Ken Klocke:

    This message is in regard to your complaint submitted on 1/15/2015 10:03:48 PM against Melaleuca, Inc. Your complaint was assigned ID 10405883.

    After careful review, the BBB has determined that there was no marketplace interaction with this business warranting a complaint that falls within our purview. Therefore, we have closed this complaint as invalid. I would truly like transparency on how many other “credible” BBB-Mela-complaints are broomed under the rug as not credible?

    Honor Protect Serve!
    (1) Case History
    Due process is the legal requirement that the state must respect all of the legal rights that are owed to a person. Due process balances the power of law of the land and protects the individual person from it. When a government harms a person without following the exact course of the law, this constitutes a due process violation, which offends the rule of law. In play Melaleuca cannot recover money it paid to the Foellers under an “excuse” theory and must prove damages.

  5. Brian, really? Spare us the political BS. Obama is attacking people like old School Chicago politics. Now he is sending the IRS and Bureau of Labor after this man. There is no justification for Govt. terror because of who you choose to vote for. If you support that, you are the Neanderthal.

    And here is the reality most Americans believe and operate – they can treat gay people with respect, and not discriminate in their professional dealings., but still be allowed to believe that homosexuality and its related acts are disgusting. What is wrong with that? And why am I required to even know or care about their sexual preference?

    Why do PROGRESSIVES require that we must accept in our core beliefs that male-on-male anal bungering is a natural human act with purpose? It’s not normal.

  6. Robert, you are a homophobe AND an idiot. Maybe you should do the moving. And for the record, I am a married man with 4 children who try to teach my kids “live and let live” when it comes to their judgement of others. I am sorry yours did not do the same.

    pathetic, Neanderthal and scared you are.

  7. Marriage is only between a man and a woman so get off your high horse and move to canada if that is what you want.
