Jim Bakker, the con man who sold fraudulent hotel scams while cheating on his wife and pretending to be a man of God in the 80s, is proving P.T. Burnum right. He’s still running a scam, only this time it’s selling survivalist supplies by telling wild tales of an Ebola epidemic and the collapse of the electric grid.
Bakker said that while “90-some percent of all Americans will be dead in less than a year” if such a breakdown occurs, you and your family will be secure if you take advantage of his special “time of trouble” offer to purchase packages containing between 91 and 273 desserts, including ice cream sandwiches, chocolates and pudding.
“Order your food, do it while there’s yet time,” he said in his sendoff message.
Glenn Beck does the same thing, of course, selling both survival supplies and gold scams.
