I Will Endorse Trump If He Invokes #ISIStheDonkey Killshot

RE: My Endorsement

Dear Donald- Against better judgement, trust me when I say that I will endorse you re: campaign to be President if you endorse and implement the following:

How Trump Head-F%*K Strategy Can Pork ISIS Brand 

Linguist Kill Shot Should Be Used To Defeat D’Aesh Terrorist Gang; Word Association 201: Insert Offensive Phrase in front of Adversary Name to Defeat Them. Trust Me.

#ISIStheDonkey and #PorkISIS will prove to be the anti-brand strategy that defeats Islamic Extremist Organization

Say what you want about Donald Trump—which is exactly his strategy—he wants his name to be repeated constantly. Rinse Repeat. Rinse Repeat. This is a text book branding technique that has been used by marketers as well as PR and IR professionals since time began.  And, as Donald Trump has proven, by inserting a negative or offensive phrase in front of the “brand name” (e.g. “Lying Ted”, “Little Marco” “Cheating Hilary”), any neuroscientist will confirm that this strategy is a highly-effective bullying technique that will quickly and effectively lead to wide-scale negative association with that person (or product).

Scott Adams, the prolific author, the creator of the Dilbert comic strip (and a trained hypnotist) has repeatedly framed Trump’s linguistic judo style for being a uniquely effective strategy to undermine his adversaries. And, let’s face it, throughout the GOP primary campaigns, every time Trump has incorporated a negative phrase in front of respective opponents’ first name, those opponents ultimately and handedly lost their respective battle to win. Hey, as Charlie Sheen will confirm, its all about winning. Period. Nothing else matters when in life and death battles.

Taking a page from that playbook, one can only wonder why the presumptive GOP presidential candidate has not invoked that same technique whenever he’s called on to address his foreign policy strategy and in particular, how he would one destroy one the most barbaric group of terrorists to occupy the planet since the days of the Huns.*  (*Not intended to discount the Nazi’s from the list of most barbaric terrorists!)

Instead of Trump and his Trumpeteers banging President Obama for “erring on the side of caution” by not invoking the phrase “Islamic Extremist,” and instead of accusing the political correct crowd for mincing words by using the phrase “ISIL”, as opposed to the acronym ending with “S” that group works so hard to advance recognition and credibility, Trump is arguably best positioned to establish a new naming convention that should be Rinsed and Repeated by every influencer who has an audience; government spokespeople, faith leaders (particularly moderate Muslim leaders), media pundits, and journalists who get the joke that their job is only safe as long as they live in a free and open society.  Case in point, moderate Muslim leaders throughout the Middle East refer to this group as D’aesh, not one of the two, four-letter acronyms used by Westerners. The phrase D’aesh is considered to be a negative connotation, and according to many real Mid-East experts, it is a polarizing term that diminishes the relevance and importance of that particular group, and is a straight slap-in the face.

In as much as some will argue the targets of this strategy will retort with “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”, the fact of the matter is that linguistic kill shots can be amazingly effective. So, we advocate introducing one of the following two phrases whenever, however and irrespective of medium to substitute their current phraseology with:

#ISIStheDonkey  A large universe of Arab Muslims subscribe to the notion that donkeys are the lowest form of animal life. By using this new phrase to the point when it becomes ubiquitous, taking Scott Adams thesis one step further, those who might have aspired to join this group will have no interest to do so, and those who have already aligned with this group will, by sheer humiliation alone, reject their allegiance and revert back to their original roots. When tweeting, please remember to include # in front!

#PorkISIS—Easier to pronounce, a fun play on Western vernacular and requires fewer characters when tweeting. Self-explanatory association; Muslims (just like religious Jews) do not eat pork, and the more zealous universe of Muslims believe those who do eat pork are committing blasphemy against the Koran. By associating Pork along-side the current four letter acronym used by these maniacal barbarians to identify themselves, this is a Double Linguistic Kill Shot.
Feel free to share this. And, #PorkISIS. Or simply call it what it is: #ISIStheDonkey.

Madoff To Testify re: "Art of Bernie's Bookkeeping"

Yes, the headline to this story is true. I'm on my way to redemption and if there is anything that I can do for the trustee and/or the 'casualties' of what I have already acknowledged as being a Ponzi scheme, I am happy to help. Trust Me.

"..The liquidating trustee for Bernie Madoff's defunct securities firm agreed on Monday to allow the convicted Ponzi schemer to talk to lawyers for Madoff investors about certain bookkeeping practices at the firm, a move Irving Picard, the trustee for the Madoff bankruptcy case, had previously opposed...."

Litigants Barred From Double Dipping in Madoff Claim Pool

It didn't require the wisdom of Antonin Scalia to rule against plaintiffs who have been pursuing my pal Jeff Picower's remaining billions as part of the Mad Hunt to Pursue Madoff Claims. All it took was a federal bankruptcy court judge in New York to realize that double-dipping in the claim pool is no more politically correct than visiting the Boca Rio buffet table more than 3 times on any given Sunday night.

(REUTERS) Victims of Bernard Madoff's fraud cannot pursue a Florida lawsuit to recover $11 billion from the estate of Jeffry Picower, who they say helped perpetuate the swindler's Ponzi scheme, a Manhattan bankruptcy judge ruled on Wednesday.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Stuart Bernstein said the lawsuit by A&G Goldman Partnership and Pamela Goldman, their third effort to sue in Florida, violated an injunction barring Madoff victims from pursuing claims belonging to Irving Picard, the trustee liquidating Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC.Bernstein oversees the Madoff firm's liquidation.

Picard had in December 2010 won a $7.2 billion settlement with the estate of Picower, who died in October 2009.But a slew of litigation ensued from Madoff customers, including many who say the trustee undervalued their claims, against Picower and other alleged enablers of Madoff. Picard has estimated that Madoff's victims lost $17.5 billion in the fraud, which was uncovered in December 2008.

In the latest Florida case, the Goldman parties added claims that Picower "propped up" Madoff's fraud with $200 million of loans to fund investor redemptions, and agreed to serve in trading records as a counterparty for many fake options trades.

The Goldman parties sought to hold Picower responsible for "all $18 billion" of Madoff customers' losses, less the $7.2 billion from the 2010 settlement.Bernstein nevertheless found it "wholly conclusory" to allege that Picower helped Madoff distribute fake statements to customers, and had enough "control" over the swindler to justify separate litigation.

He also said allowing the Florida lawsuit "would carry real risks" to the Madoff firm's bankruptcy estate, encouraging more lawsuits and perhaps undermining the $7.2 billion accord.

Bernstein nonetheless rejected efforts by Picower's widow Barbara, who oversees his estate, and other parties associated with Picower to stop further lawsuits by the Goldman parties, while saying "the question is close."

The judge said the Goldman parties have not pursued frivolous or vexatious litigation, and that the Picower parties or Picard could seek sanctions if they crossed the line.

A spokeswoman for Picard declined to comment. Lawyers for the Picower entities and the Goldman parties were not immediately available for comment.
The case is Securities Investor Protection Corp v. Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of New York, No. 08-01789.
