Koran Burning Pastor & Wife Are "Money Launderers Using Muslims As Red Herrings"

WARNING: Money-launderers using muslims as red herrings.

"WTF?"

That's what I'd say if I woke up to that headline. But trust me, it's true. By the time I'm done you will see that Terry D. Jones, the asshat in Gainesville, who is stirring up a shitstorm by promising to burn copies of the Koran ain't motivated by love -- as he claims.

He ain't motivated by fear of Islam taking over America an enforcing sharia law.
He ain't motivated by hate of the people who attacked the WTC and the Pentagon.
He ain't motivated by some twisted dominionist reading of scripture.
He sure as hell ain't motivated by some sense of divine mission.
No... this muthafucka is motivated by money.

..................

Let me show you what a multi-million dollar money laundering operation looks like, complete with shell corporations.

.....................................

What we have is (tons of research here)
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2010/9/5/893426/-WARNING:... .

1. a couple who take in money for allegedly religious purposes (placement) and

2. shuffle it around through multiple businesses across state lines and even internationally (layering).

3. The money then comes back in through a variety of channels managed by for profit corporations that are subsidiaries of an LLC owned and operated by Terry and Sylvia (integration).

4. The profits are turned into multiple real estate holdings of considerable value (payday).

You have to admire this operation. None of the holdings are in their names. The corporations they control own the properties. They have effectively used the corporate structures to insulate themselves from any claims. But they are in a position to derive all the benefits.

Here's where I think this is headed. I think these grifters are getting ready to blow town. They have all but shut down their online operations. They are trying to sell their major real estate asset. They are simultaneously trying to provoke a major media event that will put them in conflict with local government, who has expressly forbid them from having their bookburning. I fully expect they will go ahead with their shindig and when the hammer comes down, they will cry "persecution" and flee... taking as much money as they can so they can "start over anew in more hospitable environs"... while leaving his fleeced flock of faithful holding the bag.


lots more:
