Need Co-Director/production assist for HBO Project Greenlight "Romney the Racketeer" submit

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are back with their "Project Greenlight" contest seeking submissions by amateur director's; and we are going to submit "Romney the Racketeer" trailer.

To do so, I'm in need of edit software and technical prowess; which I do not posses.

If yours truly tells his own story, it finds deaf ears. When others tell the tale, the results are extraordinary. (As you can see by Matt Taibbi's "Greed and Debt", Wall Street Journal "eToys investors claim conflict at law firm", L.A. Times "Shake-up roils federal prosecutors" {just a few of the 169 + articles written}).

This is not for the timid person (though we can give you "stage" name anonymity - if you so desire).

Already have the script (and Mitt's team trying to shut it down). HBO's litigation department already knows its coming (because the previous President {David Haddad} of Live Planet, was a person I caught pulling a $2 million dollar stunt at eToys.com). I, in turn, cautioned the "legal administrator" thereof that the truth can not be silenced.











So, there you have it, my project quest in a nutshell. Romney, Bain Capital and Goldman Sachs simply can not handle public scrutiny of the massive bad faith acts they've stockpiled in our various cases. If HBO buries the submission and/or we don't get the votes I believe we will;

then there's nothing to lose!

However, if the 2 minute trailer goes forward - then ?!?!?!?


-- the reality of this saga is - it is one of the greatest stories not yet (fully) told. Each of the articles out there (such as Taibbi's) has only told a piece of the tale. Here's a more recent submission by the New York Times in March 2013 "Rigging the {eToys} I.P.O. Game".

Cause & Effect = After NY Times Rigging article; Bain cancelled Toys R Us IPO (see story - here)

Many smaller online entities have reported on part of the saga, resulting in over 2 million web hits and over 200,000 Facebook(s) and Twitter(s). Such as Liberals United reporter Ann Werner's (picture of Romney above) story "Romney Sued for RICO". Ann points out how unreported the story remains (not hard to comprehend if you remember that Mitt owns Bain that owns Clear Channel Communication 800 stations of the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Hannity and Glenn Beck).

There's also Addicting Info's Nathan story (immediately following Werner's) of "Romney Slapped with Racketeering".

Finally, there's good old PoliticusUSA.com's Rmuse; who has beaten everyone to the punch (one of the very few who looked at the case information and reported on it when Romney was running in 2012). Rmuse has done 1/2 dozen stories on the issues and was the 1st to report on the fact about the Racketeering side of the case (see his various online articles - here - here and here).

Josh Fox's "Gasland" received an Oscar nomination - not because it was a fantastic production piece; but because the subject matter was true! Reporters and main stream news have been passing up a Pulitzer Prize opportunity; because Bain Capital controls billions of dollars in advertising revenue they can't afford to lose.

What's your excuse for sitting still on the sidelines?

Fame is awaiting!








Blackwater = USAG John Ashcroft = Romney/Bain

I've been warning people how dangerous these "organized" syndicates are becoming.

Romney = Bain = Clear Channel Communications = Red McCombs = Blackwater

and former USAG John Ashcroft

MinnPost Article on Douglas Kelley Scandals Links to My Story Calling Kelley Frank Nitti

It's a puff piece at best. The MinnPost has a story out now titled "Five More Questions: Doug Kelley's high-stakes high-profile high-altitude adventures". Yet the MinnPost story quotes my remarks of Frank Nitti (at DK article on why Federal Receivers and U.S. Trustee's can't be trusted in MN and "Deal-aware" see the story link - here).






One puff question is the fact that the Minnesota federal authorities contended (from the very beginning) that Tom Petters Ponzi (pic above) was merely a $3.7 Billion Ponzi. Yours truly has always posed the question of

"When do you ever see the feds play down how big a case and arrest was made"?

{This is of the issue of saying Petter's Ponzi is being touted by the feds that its only $3.7 Billion - versus over $40 Billion}. But there are many rotten things in Denmark (Minn Dept of Justice). Such as the fact that Larry Reynolds laundered $12 Billion while in Witness Protection (article - here). And Marty Lackner was part of the feeder funds (via SlyBell Lancelot) to Petters Ponzi. Marty Lackner was the brother of Minn. Asst. U.S. Attorney J. Lackner (head of Criminal Division).

Doug Kelley is now trying to weasel his way out by stating the following in the MinnPost article;

I think there were $41 billion worth of inter-corporate transfers in Petters’ little scheme.

Think about that. It’s dizzying. Primarily this was through two or three banks.







The big deal they are all hiding is the fact that Paul Traub is publicly known to have been a partner (controller) of Tom Petters Ponzi; but no one can arrest Paul Traub - because he is partners with Mitt Romney (as the picture below details). Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital are involved in Petters Ponzi too (via Fingerhut deal and possibly more).





I'm thankful that the MinnPost linked to the story written years ago;
and I hope the journalist will simply dig a little bit more!


After all, having an Assistant U.S. Attorney directly connected is extremely noteworthy.

Especially since Marty Lackner (purportedly) committed suicide!



Did Petters Ponzi Receiver Kelley Admit Deceiving the Public? (Possible Fraud).

There are several major cases Douglas Kelley of the Kelley Wolter firm - is known for. Looming large still are the Tom Petters (Paul Traub) Ponzi and the Minnesota Orchestra scandal. I'll deal with the conflict of interest/color of law crimes and ethics of DK in another thread. In this one we are going to simply deal with the Orchestra scandal and;

Has Douglas Kelley kind of admitted to public deception (fraud)?






Who is Douglas Kelley?


Background is necessary to get a bigger picture view. Douglas Kelley is a former federal prosecutor and considered one of the heads of the Republican party programs in Minnesota. Prior to the Tom Petters case, Douglas Kelley was purportedly engaged to the Pohlad daughter (owner of Minnesota Twins and more). During the Petters Ponzi case in Minnesota, Doug's "Kelley Wolter" law firm was the attorney at law for Tom Petters; who then switched to the other side and became the Federal Receiver and Bankruptcy Trustee in some Tom Petters cases. Nothing sums up Doug Kelley better than this question;

Can Al Capone's Frank Nitti become the Federal Receiver of Capone's organized crimes?

You say "of course not"! But that's exactly what happened in the Petters Ponzi case.







-
Minnesota Orchestra Scandal


At the "Song of the Lark" blog, they seek to digest the Orchestra case and abuses of budget with Douglas Kelley at the helm (who sought to create a new "Beethoven" contemporary era (hence the picture poster above). However, the real goal of Douglas Kelley was to bust the unionized efforts of the Orchestra's musicians. Though the Republican leader claims that such is the furthest thing from his mind.

Doug Kelley stated simply (originally) that the prices cuts in musical labor were necessary; otherwise the Orchestra would go broke. Now Mr. Kelley is recanting his early position. The Song of the Lark blogs coins it as DK is admitting to "bullchitting" (deceiving the public and musicians in general).

The fact of the matter is, lying to the public and opposing parties in financial matters is deception. As Douglas Kelley well knows (being a former Assistant United States Attorney) - Deception = FRAUD.

So the question remains - Has Douglas Kelley admitted to deception (fraud)? I'll let you read the article and Minnesota DU members comment with their knowledge of the case. Song of the Lark blogs story "Doug Kelley Still Problematic"

The article states;

So listen, I understand negotiations, and I get what he’s saying. But I also want to point out that Doug Kelley is cheerfully admitting to bullshitting. Not just bullshitting musicians, but bullshitting the public. How many times did we hear that these particular cuts were necessary to save the institution from complete collapse? Yeah, about those: Doug Kelley is now saying he didn’t really need them to ensure a healthy organization. How do you operate a successful non-profit while simultaneously manipulating such an important number? If these numbers were facades, how many others were, too? Non-profit arts organizations ought to be above this type of shenanigan.

Maybe if the Minnesota Orchestral Association didn’t have a history of deferring to PR companies to decide what size deficits to report – or a history of leaving out important facts when asking for money from the state legislature – or a history of never publicly mentioning Michael Henson’s massive bonuses before muckraking bloggers got to the story – this admission would be less troubling, but as it is, it confirms an unsettling long-term strategy: Show numbers that help you make your case at the time, then reveal later that the true picture was different.

And Mr. Kelley doesn’t think that his bullshitting contributed to the level of animosity?

To Mitt's Chagrin "Haas v Romney" 9th Cir. Appeal is Moving Forward.

I've sued Romney & his RICO in Los Angeles federal court for Racketeering (civil) - case # 2:13-cv-7738.

Judge dismissed the case utilizing 130 old "Barton doctrine"
http://petters-fraud.com/clocked_di_66_apr9_2014_order_to_dismiss_via_barton_doctrine.pdf

I timely filed a Motion for Reconsideration and an Appeal (that was somehow premature).

https://twitter.com/MittRomney

The 9th Circuit has put forth the following scheduling Order;
with a caveat that I explain why I haven't (yet) filed a full case appeal.
http://petters-fraud.com/9th_cir_notice_of_appeal_and_schedule_barrygold_mnat_gww.pdf


It is due by Monday (in Los Angeles Fed Court);
and I'm filing it there and sending a copy to the 9th Circuit.

Romney 2016: A Fear That Mitt Won't Run

There are many possible scenarios being discussed for 2016. Joe, Hillary, Christie, Bush (another) and dear ole "I ain't gonna run" Mitt the twit Romney. People in D.C. are even speculating that it will be Jeb/Mitt ticket (YES, in "that" order). A possibility that would make what GWB and Cheney did to U.S. look like child's play. The question is, do you - Do We - want Pitten's to run; ---- or not to run!

That's the question?









Will we have Hillary, Biden and Warren (as VP)


Hillary being the Dem front runner is not (necessarily) a good thing. She's going to be very abused by the slings & arrows come 2016. It was brilliant for President Obama to make her Sec. of State (and assure she wouldn't twist fate in 2012). As such, Hillary has gained worldwide experience at the top; which is something RWNJ could have spanked her on otherwise.

Then there's the Joe Biden question?



As for me, I'd beg Elizabeth Warren to run. Yes, Hillary and Bill are popular. But Billy boy repealed Glass Stengal on his way out; and that stuff about him being a good economics guy is not necessarily kosher. He was there during the dot.com era extraordinaire. Hillary will be her own gal; but her hubby won't be Hillary's man - he'll still be President Clinton (redo).









Mitt will be the Pitt's - no matter where he is.


Do you really think that Romney is going around kissing babies, raising money and backing this and that guy for the joy of being the pat on the back guy? Here in California Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and Romney are backing Neel Kashkari for Governor. Prior to the ad on TV, I never even heard of the guy before. Just the mere fact that it is the ilky Repub 3 backing Kashkari, is enough to make me run for the hills away from the guy.

Be all that as it may (barring my finally getting justice and a full investigation of Mitt the Pitts {yes, I can call him names - MANY - he is a scumbag of the highest order and I've got the proofs}); there's a great chance Willard Mitt Romney will run in 2016. The thing is, he admitted (in his film) that he "kind of had to steal" the Republican nomination (See DU comment and link Jan 2014 - here). He is a man on a mission (that includes - all of a sudden - promoting increases in the minimum wage, immigration reform and more).

As per the pic above (of Romney behind bars) that is where Mitt belongs - IN JAIL. He lied to the entire country on his federal election campaign finance Office of Government Ethics 278 Form stating he left Bain Capital as of February 11, 1999. As everyone now knows, such is patently false. So flip flop Mitt claims to be "retroactively" retired from Bain Capital (as of August 2001 - back to February 11, 1999).

Just remember, Sheldon Adelson porked up nearly $100 million to hope to acquire that "friendly" United States Attorney General. Upon failing to get such, Sheldon Adelson simply confessed violations of the FCPA (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act). The reason Mr. Adelson was paying such a high price to benefit from corruption, is due to the fact Romney already has corrupted our federal systems of justice (Colm F Connolly as U.S. Attorney in "Dealaware" {who was Romney/Bain law firm attorney from 1999 to August 2001 - and then became federal prosecutor refusing to investigate} and the Public Corruption Task Force {see "Shake-up roils federal prosecutors"}).

Willard Mitt Romney is the scourge of the earth. An autocrat who lies, cheats and steals without remorse or relent. He really believes he will be a god some day and confessed he likes to fire people. Do you think that the tiger's stripes suddenly changed? Or did him and Karl Rove hire someone better qualified to steal the election by grooming Pitten's better? At the recent Utah conference, the talk is the backers are willing to throw their billions in on Mitt Romney again (see the WaPo story on "Elite Donors - longing for Romney to Run again" - because he's "their" {friendly USAG} man).

With the GWB/Cheney Haliburton we all know - do we really want Mitt to Run, or Not to Run? Outside of the fact of yours truly living a Romney nightmare where judges trounce up 130 cases to let Romney's RICO gang get off 'Scot Free', I'm truly more worried about a Mitt sharp enough not to run; and let someone else do a Dan Quayle take the heat - while they steal U.S. all blind.

And let's not forget, Mitt had a vision of riding a white horse into the White House!


No matter how you look at it; Romney's part of our problem in 2016 and he's got a huge head start!




Memorial Day (used to be) Decoration (of graves) Day.

As pointed out by my good acquaint Otteray (Charlton Stanley - who remembers his fallen son with the tombstone picture below), who is also well known on DailyKos and weekend contributor on Professor Jonathan Turley's Blog, Memrorial Day 2014 is "A Day of Remembrance Everyone Seems to be Forgetting". Whereas, it does appear, the turn of time has passed the past, into something quirky for newer generations. Apparently, it used to be traditional for groups to go out (on May 30th) and put a flower upon each and every grave known to exist.

Otteray cracked me up with his remark that;

"Now? Nothing says “honor the dead” quite like a mattress sale".




Then things turned more solemn, with the following reflections.





That "tradition" is now turned into Memorial Day for our patriots paying the ultimate sacrifice.

One soldier (Lt. Col. John McRae, MD), from wars long ago in 1915, turned his gift of life (surviving German's bombing with chlorine gas) into poetry and poppy flowers. At that time, it was a tradition to utilize poppies as the proper flower to place upon a grave (so that the person would not be forgotten from the face of the earth). Soldier/DR. McRae wrote the following;

IN FLANDERS FIELDS
by John McRae



In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.







Otteray also provides this video tribute to this day as he states;

The video below is Steve McDonald singing a parent’s lament, “Live On My Warrior Son.”
The images are from the cemeteries in Flanders, Belgium.







Teen Sex, Dr. Phil, Bain Capital, Collide: Fed Lawsuit in Utah.

It is a tale of woe - due to a showman's show. As is par for the course, Dr. Phil rants upon a family; and offers to assist. Beyond the questions of (whether or not) Dr Phil's show does his "assisting" out of purity, or just to put on a show that he is the good guy. In this case, the end is not justified by the "means" (or meanies).

As reported by the Salt Lake Tribune (here);


Two teens having sex before witnessing a third partner’s murder. Hookups with older men arranged online. Parents berated on air by Dr. Phil and then one of the teen’s confinement in a youth treatment center in Utah, where she allegedly suffered physical abuse at the hands of staff.




The fact that Bain Capital is involved, in another scandal, is not so unusual to moi; but it is getting rather sickening, to see how Bain is everywhere you go. Turns out (in this case) Bain Capital's subsidy owns the facility where alleged abuses took place. The Myers lawsuit (here) - alleges the following, alarming, state of affairs about deceptive practices at the facilities begin with;

"Their extravagant fees suggest great expertise and cloak minimal credentials"


Additionally, the lawsuit alleges that Dr. Phil had veiled conflicts of interests concerning Island View and CRC compounds. Whereas the Myers litigation (via counsel) stipulates that;


"upon information and belief, either was paid in money or notoriety, or both,
for endorsing not only Island View, but also a raft of CRC compounds just as abusive"




There's no action in the case docket (yet), other than the filing of the case;
and attorneys putting in notice of appearances.

Will follow this one - and see how it shows!



In Chambers Order Dismiss Haas v Romney Racketeering Case!

Source: Los Angeles Federal Court PACER Records

Having reviewed the numerous documents filed by plaintiff {Laser Haas} over the course of the past seven months since this case was initiated, including four different versions of the massive and disjointed complaint, the Court concludes that the currently operative First Amended Complaint (“FAC”) must be dismissed pursuant to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 8(a), 9(b), and 12(b)(6) for the reasons stated in the motions to dismiss filed by defendants Bain Capital and Goldman Sachs.

For the foregoing reasons, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT:

(1) All pending motions are suitable for determination without oral argument, and the hearings
previously scheduled for June 2, 2014, and June 9, 2014 are therefore VACATED.

(2) Plaintiff’s motions to amend the complaint {26, 67} and motion for reconsideration of the
order dismissing the MNAT defendants {77} are DENIED.

(3) Defendants motions to dismiss this case {59, 60, 61, 82} are GRANTED.

(4) The First Amended Complaint is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.

(5) Plaintiff’s motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis in this Court {69} is DENIED AS MOOT.

(6) The Clerk shall close the case.

We have more than one-hundred felony violations by the named defendants in the "Haas v Romney" for civil Racketeering case. But that appears to be unimportant to any federal agent, agency and/or court even in this USAG Holder age of "No One is Too Big to Jail". (See HuffPo, Reuters and other articles {here} on United States Attorney General Eric Holder's remarks that the Department of Justice will pursue actions - no matter where it leads).

You can see the background of the case at our new website "Romney the Racketeer" for information about the particular case crimes. And our very detailed much years in the making (cause Romney's RICO gang has done much) "Petters-Fraud/DOJ_Cover_Up" web pages.

I started a petition at MoveOn.org, concerning USAG Holder's remarks (here); but there's a much more active item at MoveOn.org titled "Attorney General Holder: You Said no bank is 'too big to jail'. Prove It, starting with Wells Fargo".

Here's a story at Addicting Info titled: "Romney Slapped with Racketeering"

Also, here's the story from Ann Werner at Liberals United "Romney Sued for RICO".

Then there's Rmuse at PoliticusUSA.com who did nearly a dozen stories
(Ron is great with pictures, as is the CORE pic below).
Rmuse has many stories including "Meet the Man Battling Romney & Bain 12 years".

Don't worry any; because we're NOT giving up.



I'm going to sue Eric Holder on his empty promise.
