UPDATE: 07222020 Immediately after Robert Unanue's statements about Trump sales ticked up a little from Trump supporters. The effects of the boycott are just starting to hit the company. Since then it turns out the company was in negotiations to sell part of the company. The buyer wanted to expandthen go public. Because of Unanue's actions that deal is now dead. 


I used to out stock scammers. One "scam" is an entity buying a privately owned company that makes a profit with little debt. The buyers state they want to expand the company and go public to raise funds for the expansion. They end up taking on a lot of debt while the board, main employees get large salaries and bonuses. They go public and sell shares to raise funds. Generally the board, main employees get stock options which they can't sell instantly. There is generally another round of stock sales to raise more money. Main employees sell their shares into that pump and dump rally. Main employees, board try to take as much cash as they can out of the company. They cut corners to increase profits which reduces quality and quality control. Product goes down hill. Employees are not happy at reduced wages, income. Sales start to slide. Brand is damaged. Company is no longer profitable. They need more money and sell more shares. Share price starts to really tank because of dilution. Maybe they even do death spiral financing. They become a penny stock trading on the pink. Company goes bankrupt and reorganizes or goes private if the original owners have enough cash to buy it out. The original buyers make out like bandits. They go find another company to raid. The end.

ORIGINAL: Robert Unanue, Robert Ignatius Unanue, is the CEO of Goya Foods. Robert Unanue was born March 26, 1954 in New Jersey, California. He is the grandson of the founder of Goya Foods, Prudencio "Peter" Unanue Ortiz. The name "Unanue" is pronounced you-NAN-way. Below is the family tree, ancestry of Robert Unanue.

Robert Unanue's father was Anthony "Tony" Vincent Unanue Casal 1927-1976. Below is his obituary.

Prudencio's parents were Jose Unanue and Adelaida Ortiz from Spain. I can't find any citizenship papers for Prudencio. He's always listed as a Spanish citizen. Below is Prudencio's obituary.

He began in business with a small importing concern in New York City that dealt with several Spanish companies, but when the Spanish Civil War broke out, he was forced to abandon the business. In 1949 he established the Goya Foods Corp. in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico. He later moved the corporate headquarters to Duane Street in downtown Manhattan and then to Brooklyn. The company recently was relocated in Secaucus, N.J. Mr. Unanue is survived by his wife, Carolina Casals Valdes; four sons, Charles, Anthony, and Frank, all in Puerto Rico; and Joseph of Bogota; and 18 grandchildren.

Mr. Unanue, along with his older brother Joseph, president of Goya Foods, are the second generation of the Unanue family to run the business - the largest Hispanic food company in the United States.

Mr. Unanue is survived by his wife, Diana Margarita Lopez, his children Frankie, Patricia, Carlos, Georgiana, Anne-Marie, Jose" Antonio, and Jorge and five grandchildren. Services for Mr. Unanue will be held in Puerto Rico, where he died. Transcription by Mary Cummins."


Francisco Frank Unanue Casal

Robert Unanue's paternal grandmother was Carolina Casal Valdes born September 23, 1890 in Caldas de Reyes, Galicia, Spain died September 8, 1984 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Per her death certificate she appeared to die of alcoholism. Death certificate states in Spanish translated liver coma, diabetes, gastrointestinal bleeding. Someone filed to divorce Prudencio Unanue in New York in 1946. Carolina's parents were Antonio Casal Soto born 1858 in Galicia, Spain and Ulpiana Valdes Cajas born 1860 in San Lorenzo, Puerto Rico. The father was an affluent educated attorney. Her parents were Ulpiano Valdes Pena 1833-1910 born in Spain and Carolina Cajas y Machado born in Puerto Rico.

Robert's mother was Eleanor Elizabeth "Betty" Cox born June 19, 1927 in Washington, D.D, died March 21, 1986 in Hackensack, New Jersey. Her family is basically from Ireland.

Robert's maternal grandfather was Thomas Andrew Cos 1896-1957 born and died in West Virginia.His maternal grandmother was Mary "Nellie" Tierney 1894-1947 born in Massachusetts and died in Washington D.C.

Robert married Muriel Ruth Fitzpatrick born 1956 in 1978. Her father is Dr. William J. Fitzpatrick. Together Robert and Muriel have six children, i.e. Anthony, Elizabeth, James, Muriel, Robert and William.

Below are some lawsuits. They spent years suing each other over inheritance and control of the company after Prudencio died in 1976.

In 1969 Charles Unanue the oldest son of Prudencio stated that Goya Foods had committed tax fraud. He stated "the social and tax responsibilities of my brothers and the millionaire (Goya companies) have been evaded." The article is titled "Goya, oh boya." In 1972 he agreed to relinquish his ownership in the company. In 1987 he sued for $100M. He ended up losing in 1998 and owed $6.9 million in legal fees. I assume that's why he went bankrupt. At that time his brother Joseph was worth $475M. Goya Foods sure makes a lot of money selling food staples to Latinos. Horrible they don't support Latinos.

2002 there was an arrest warrant for Charles Unanue and his wife who fled the country. It was based on fraud per a 2002 article in the St Louis Dispatch. Unanue sold his condo for $4.2M cash while he was not allowed to sell assets. Criminal family.

In the 1990's Ulpiano Charles Unanue Casal filed for bankruptcy. He and his wife Lilian hid their millions of dollars worth of assets.That's called bankruptcy fraud. They had $7M worth of luxury real estate in New York, Spain and Paris while they claimed to be penniless. They used shell companies and Swiss bank accounts to hide their assets. If his siblings hadn't sued him, we probably wouldn't have known about it. Very unscrupulous family. No wonder they support Donald Trump, birds of a feather. Miami Herald 1993 article. 

As I read articles about the family they talk about the "Hispanic market" as if they are not a part of it. They feel they are white white but play up their Spain Spanish heritage when convenient.  They may even mention their Puerto Rican heritage at times. Coming from a Latino family there is a large divide between European Hispanics and Mexicans, South Americans. Euros are taller and lighter. True Mexicans, South Americans are indigenous which are generally shorter and darker. The Unanue family are Euros who sometimes act "superior" to indigenous people. In this case the Unanue family feel they are "white" like Trump. They just use "Hispanics" and "Latinos" to make money. The proudly state that "Latinos" spend a larger percentage of their money on food. Yes, because they're poor. Goya Foods brags about this like it's a good thing. It is for Goya but not for Latinos.

These are for Joseph Unanue.

Jeanine Cummins "American Dirt" first trip to Mexico, Mexican border - Hilarious lies! - by Mary Cummins (NO RELATION!)

jeanine cummins, jeanine c cummins, american dirt, author, writer, liar, mentirosa, san diego california border, oprah, oprah winfrey, flat iron books

Below is from a Q & E with Cummins from January 14, 2020. I hope this is just more lying otherwise this is really pathetic. For anyone who has ever driven from San Diego to the border at any time you can tell this is a story. I've been going there since I was a newborn up to just a few years ago. The first time I remember driving over the border I was seven in 1972. There have always been many HUGE signs saying you are approaching the border for miles before you get there even back in 1972.

Tijuana is 20 miles south of San Diego. You take the 805 to the 5 and hit the border check point. You would have to drive a long way around the check point to find an open place with no auto blocks to just drive across accidentally. A sane person would have parked on the US side then walked to the border over the bridge. There's parking there for this purpose. When she saw Mexicans selling chicle, pinatas she should have realized she was in Mexico.

Bookselling This Week: Where did the idea for this book come from?

"Jeanine Cummins: The first moment I felt like I should write about this happened many, many years ago, when my husband, who was my boyfriend at the time, and I were vacationing in California. We had taken the week to drive the Pacific Coast Highway and our last stop was San Diego, and one day I drove down to the border by myself. My husband was an undocumented immigrant and I didn’t want him anywhere near the border, but I wanted to go and just see it. And I accidentally drove into Mexico, which you could still do then. It was pre-9/11 and the border was not militarized the way it is now.

I’d been to Mexico before, but I’d never been to the border. I was so shocked by what I saw there. There were so many young men with only one leg. There were young kids trying to sell gum or hats or piñatas or whatever touristy stuff they had to sell. I had no money because as soon as I got there, I got pulled over by the policía and they took it all. The fine print on my rental agreement said I couldn’t have the car I was driving in Mexico, and the officer said he would impound the car and I would have to wait in jail for a few days to talk to the judge. I was 21 or 22 (that would be 1995 before she met her husband when she was still in college in Maryland), and I was terrified. I said I couldn’t go to prison (soooo dramatic! that's not how it works), and he said, well, maybe there’s another way. You can pay a fine. And I said, how much is the fine? And he said, how much you got?

I gave him all my money, and then I waited five hours in line to get through U.S. Customs and Border Protection to get back into the United States. After crossing accidentally in seven seconds (HUGE lie). So, I was sitting at the border for many, many hours, just observing all these young kids, and I must have seen five for six young men with only one leg. And I didn’t understand what I was looking at. When I got home to New York, I started researching. I came across “La Bestia,” and I came to understand that these were men from Central America and southern Mexico who had, in all likelihood, ridden the train to the border and had fallen off at some point and been maimed. I came to understand how common this was, that it’s happening every single day. In the effort to just reach the U.S. border, never mind cross it, people are being killed and maimed daily. It’s commonplace. And I was like, why don’t I know about this? Why don’t people in the U.S. know this story?

I never stopped thinking about that, and for many years, I felt an enormous reluctance to write about it. I felt, very clearly, that it just wasn’t my story to tell. And even when I started thinking about writing about the border, I resisted writing from a migrant’s point of view for a long time. But if I really wanted to get into it, then the correct thing to do was to tell the story of the people who were suffering."

Cummins previously wrote a book about the potato famine. She was asked why she wrote that book. She replied "people starved during the potato famine. Not many people know about this. I have to educate people about this." Everyone knows about the potato famine. It's part of history class. This woman needs to go back to bar tending.

The below pic is 1970 at the border. There were still signs on the freeway saying you're going to Mexico. There is no way you just accidentally drive over.

1970 at Mexico border San Diego. Huge signs even back then. You don't accidentally drive across the border. You'd have to be blind or drunk to do that.

Review of Jeanine Cummins book "American Dirt," - by Mary Cummins - NO RELATION

jeanine cummins, american dirt, jeanine c cummins, irish, mexican, immigrant, mexico, central american, undocumented, border, rape, murder, robbery, drug cartel


Finished the book "American Dirt." The weak plot is so implausible that my eyes could not stop rolling. But, it was the "Author's Note" at the end that made me almost throw my iPhone out the window (I read the book on iPhone as an epub).

The white author said she has so very, very much in common with this book and it's main characters. The book is about poor, brown, undocumented immigrants fleeing poverty, murder, gang violence in Mexico and Central America to come to the US. 100% white wealthy author Jeanine Cummins (no relation) said her husband was an undocumented immigrant just like the main character in her book so she understands their plight. She had a fear of him being deported once when they were pulled over during a regular traffic stop. Based on this traffic stop she said "so you could say I have a dog in the fight" for undocumented immigrants. She forgets to mention that her husband is a white professional Irishman with money in Maryland who flew here and merely over stayed a visa. He didn't walk 2,000 miles, get raped, assaulted, robbed, raped again, robbed again and murdered.

Cummins goes on to say that "she personally" suffered trauma in her life just like the main characters of her book when "her cousins" were raped, assaulted and then murdered after being pushed off a bridge while out of state. She forgets that the lone survivor admitted he was never pushed off the bridge. She lied about the main element of a book she wrote about her cousins' experience in order to sell more books. She went on to say their experience caused "her" life trauma which made her identify with the main character in her book who had 16 of her closest family members brutally murdered by the head of a Mexican drug cartel. The book characters were also raped, robbed, raped again, robbed again, assaulted...

Cummins continued by saying in the author's note that she also identifies with immigrants in her book because one of her grandmothers was born in Puerto Rico. Puerto Ricans are US citizens. Cummins stated her Puerto Rican grandmother wasn't received well in the US because of her skin tone and hair. Her very wealthy university educated grandmother was white white with stick straight hair. WTF? That would be like me saying I understand the suffering of poor black children dying of tropical diseases in Africa because I have experienced similar things. Nope.

I see why there are so many very negative reviews of this book. I'll write a regular review tomorrow after I finish some work. I just had to get that "Author's Note" rant off my chest. This woman has a lot of nerve. Even after all the well deserved attacks she just has Oprah's book recommendation pinned to the top of her FB page. That is all that matters to her, money or should I say dinero.

I'll post a review of the full book later. I just had to rant about the author's ridiculous note first.

Below is from a Q & E with Cummins. What a dum dum dum. I hope this is just more lying otherwise this is really pathetic. For anyone who has ever driven from San Diego to the border at any time you can tell this is a story. I've been going there since I was a newborn up to just a few years ago.

Tijuana is 20 miles south of San Diego. You take the 805 to the 5 and hit the border check point which takes a while to get through. You would have to drive a long way around the check point to find an open place to just drive across accidentally. A sane person would have parked on the US side then walked to the border. There's parking there for this purpose. When she saw Mexicans selling Mexican shit she should have realized she was in Mexico. Cummins lies so much about being Puerto Rican, her father is Puerto Rican, her brother was thrown off the bridge...that it's hard to believe a word she says. "Everyone was hopping around on only one leg in Mexico. Everyone!"

I came to understand how common this was, that it’s happening every single day. In the effort to just reach the U.S. border, never mind cross it, people are being killed and maimed daily. It’s commonplace. And I was like, why don’t I know about this? Why don’t people in the U.S. know this story?

I never stopped thinking about that, and for many years, I felt an enormous reluctance to write about it. I felt, very clearly, that it just wasn’t my story to tell. And even when I started thinking about writing about the border, I resisted writing from a migrant’s point of view for a long time. But if I really wanted to get into it, then the correct thing to do was to tell the story of the people who were suffering."

Cummins previously wrote a book about the potato famine. She was asked why she wrote the book. She replied "people starved during the potato famine. Not many people know about this. I have to educate them." Everyone knows about the potato famine. It's part of history class.

What is The One 100,000 sf home by Nile Niami at 944 Airole Way, Bel Air, California 90077? By Mary Cummins

The property goes by a few addresses. They are main address is 944 N Airole Way and then 937 N Stradella Road and 951 N Stradella Road. The parcel map below shows the property outlined in red. It's zoned LARE20 which is the city of Los Angeles residential estate. It's approximately 166,828 sf or 3.8 acres. It last sold 12/2012 for $28,000,000. It's had repeat lis pendens on it for mechanic liens i.e., unpaid contractors. It's had loans on the property up to $82,000,000. I think one reason the owner throws around the crazy price is to get media coverage and to get insane loans on the property. It's listed as vacant land so I don't think there is an occupancy permit. Sounds like the guy needs to sell it now. Whoever buys it will have to pay property tax in the amount of 1 1/4% of value per year. The original value is the sale price. 

The owner is Nile Niami born February 1968 in Los Angeles County, California, Crestlloyd LLC 8981 W Sunset Blvd #303, West Hollywood, CA 90069. I see a Nameer N Niami born 25 Feb 1968 with mother's maiden name Larkin. He also goes by Nile and Neil. His father is Hazim Mohammed Niami born 1932 in Baghdad, Iraq, a civil engineer who designed the Cinerama Dome. His parents divorced when he was six.

The APN of the property is 4369-026-021/020. I see soils and geological permits denied in 2017 and 2018. One was finalized very recently for grading.

I just found permits You have to search by legal description tract 22727 lots 1, 2, 3 and use APNs 4369-026-014/017/002. I think he's trying to obfuscate the property identification so people can't tell it's not as large as he's said it is and it has no occupancy permit. This is very common with these mega-mansions. It makes it difficult to evaluate unless you're an appraiser.

2014 they demolished existing home. 2014 permit to build new one story accessory building. 2017 permit to build new guard house. 2017 permit to build basement for servants. I see five almost dormitory like bedrooms, see below. Generally developers add a basement to be allowed to build more. They generally turn basement into another living level by digging out the sides so it's open. This is how sneaky developers can build more than legally allowed or approved. They can't include the basement area as a living area.

I see they will build two stories over a basement with five car garage. It says 333' x 333' floor area 44,440 sf, total floor area 73,934 sf. Still not 100,000 sf. Residential floor area is 44,440 sf. Again, not 100,000 sf. See below for how they measure the building. It's misleading.

They have to install on site fire hydrant. It looks like they can build max residential living 48,291 sf.

Below is the basic permit so people can read it for themselves.

There is a $82,500,000 construction loan with Hankey Capital LLC, a $30,188,235 other loan with Yogi Securities Holdings. With no occupancy permit this will be difficult to sell at the moment. He will have to sell it for a bit less than $500,000,000.

If you want to find docs in Los Angeles building and safety you need to search the APN. I see permits only for proposed site stabilization in response to an order to comply due to over steep lot. They have to install soil nails, anchors to hold in place netting for soils and engineering. Nile Niami signed this in 2014 saying he's an owner, builder. There are two permit application numbers 19020-10000-01428 and 19030-10000-03130. I see a 2018 permit for a new entry gate. See below for documents submitted by the owner. These are public documents. I did not hack their plans. I don't see any building permits for a home. I used all three addresses and the APN. Maybe there's a reason why we only see computer graphic drawings of this home. Per building and safety it doesn't yet exist. I think he just built the retaining walls and put in some landscaping. He can say it has 1,000,000 sf because it doesn't matter as I see no home permits.

Here are a few more ID numbers, names.  Parcel ID # PIN # is 144B149 302, APN 4369-026-021, county map red # MB 623-81/83, legal is tr 22727 lot 2. There is a permit for a retaining wall. That's all I see.

Below are the people working on the project:
David R Salter License C69911
Joshua Rafael Feffer License EG2138
Steven Jeffrey Cox License C48940

If you look at the pics the developer provides to media and others, they are mainly computer generated images. They aren't photos. That's because the property is far from ready to be shown. It's not even finished. Below are some recent satellite image pics from Google Pro Earth. Click to see larger. The slope of the land is over steep over 2:1 ratio so they had to reinforce the site. The reason for the slope is so they could build as much as possible.

 Below is the plan for the main house. Seems there was a home, pool and tennis court on the property originally. He didn't tear it all down.
