Main Stream reporter points out my mistake on Marty Lackner suicide story.

Marty Lackner "reportedly" committed suicide during the Petters Ponzi case. What is at issue is that Paul Traub was Petters partner and Paul Traub is also Mitt Romney's partner.

Even - "if" - Marty Lackner actually did kill himself (which this pursuer of justice feels is suspect); the fact of the matter remains that J. Lackner was Marty Lackner's brother. And J. Lackner is the Assistant United States Attorney (head at the time of the Criminal Prosecution Division) - of the Minnesota Department of Justice United States Attorney's office.

Am I the ONLY one who understands the significance of all those facts?

In the many quests to find fault with yours truly - concerning my Romney Racketeering federal lawsuit (see "Haas v Romney" issues - HERE) I've run into many naysayers and main stream media fault finders. Having talked to everyone from NBC Universal, independents, Ed Schultz's Producer, HuffPo and Associated Press and more; I'm still amazed at the profuse amount of cognitive dissonance and haughty bias. Now one gal said to me yesterday -

"Laser, you're mistaken about your contention on the Marty Lackner story"!

Of course my back tensed up, my hair stiffened and I got irked at her real quick. Responding to her remark with a quick cutoff of any further banter from her, I simply said "Hush up ma'an, your touting Bull [c]hit"!


BACKGROUND - Who is Marty Lackner and why he (purportedly) committed suicide!

It is highly unusual that any one individual would be engaged in a civil war type battle with Mitt Romney; as he tends to slaughter companies - not just one person. And it is also highly unusual that anyone would turn down a bribe and chance to be Pitten's partner. Be that as it may, Romney and I are adversaries and yours truly filed a Federal RICO case against him on October 18th; in order to resolve our dispute.

Laser Haas alleges Romney is a Racketeer; and almost everyone out there thinks I'm nuts.

Naysayers are about to eat their words!

Marty Lackner passed away in 2009; after he and his friends contacted me concerning the Minnesota federal cases on Tom Petters Ponzi (see Star Tribune stories (here).

I'm the blogging expert on Petters Ponzi; because Paul Traub is Petters partner and yours truly has hounded the feds for a decade to arrest them both. (See my "Petters-Fraud" website (here), (here) and (here).

The reason why Marty and/or other parties contacted yours truly about the Tom Petters, is the fact that word spread around anonymous people and "tippers" could contact me and trust I would not reveal them as a source.

What Marty Lackner and his friends told me, is that he was involved in the Petters Ponzi affairs. Marty claimed he had broken no laws and that he was the brother of J. Lackner.

That would be Minnesota, Assistant United States Attorney Jim Lackner;
who was also head of the Dept of Justice's Criminal Prosecution Division

To put it succinctly, I said "Bull [c]hit" and hung up the phone.

Because so much evidence was flowing through my hands and being forwarded on to the United States Attorneys office in Minnesota and I was also alleging that federal corruption was occurring; I believed the first phone call was a set up - to get me for Obstruction.

Then friends of Marty Lackner called me and informed of his purported suicide.

From that day forward, no matter how much I may doubt the validity of someone's contentions, I now take the time to instruct them to email me a summary; and then I perform a preliminary investigation into the issues - before I consider denouncing their remarks.

Marty Lackner died - of a "reported" suicide - in 2009.

As of a few days ago, the only story that was known to me, about Marty Lackner, is the Minnesota Public Radio online article titled "More than lost fortunes in the wake of Petters' Ponzi scheme"

If you'll take the time to look at the article, you will see two things. Marty Lackner WAS involved in the Petters Ponzi scheme (via Greg Bell's Lancelot/Sky Bell "feeder" funds); and that yours truly is the only commenter.
People say Laser Haas is a CT Nut on the issue that Marty Lackner & J Lackner are brothers.

- - It is a miracle that MPR censors permitted my comments to remain. Everyone, including people who know me well - stated that I'm full of bull. But my allegations upon the MPR Fortunes Lost story do remain; and I've been attacked by thousands of people (including close friends) who say they don't believe me.

What is at issue is the fact that it is super HUGE news of ANYONE being directly connected to Tom Petters Ponzi and the Minnesota Dept. of Justice; and (surely) the No. 1 main stream newspaper in Minnesota (the Star Tribune) would have carried such an important story. Hence, if ST is not telling the tale, then Laser Haas is simply taking 2 people with the same last name and making stuff up.

EAAANNNTTT - How terribly Wrong those bubble farquarts truly are!

After all, there are so many nationally significant and important issues that beg. Surely no entity such as the Star Tribune would be remiss in its chance to answer the riddle of how Bernie Madoff and/or Tom Petters could do Billions in frauds and get away with it for more than a decade. Especially since the Star Tribune was fighting for its very life and would have rushed to get national attention to such a HUGE story (the ST filed for bankruptcy during the Petters Ponzi case). Again, there are SO MANY questions that beg.

Like the questions that

  1. Did Marty Lackner know Petters was a Ponzi schemer?
  2. "IF" Marty and J. Lackner are brothers - what did J. Lackner KNOW?
  3. Did J. Lackner ever receive ANY gifts from his brother Marty?
  4. Such as a vacation, a boat, car - or House!
  5. Had Marty and Jim EVER engaged in ANY discussion about Tom Petters?
  6. Are there emails between the two?
  7. If so, WHERE are those emails now?
  8. Who at the Dept of Justice did the review of Marty/Jim Lackner issue?
  9. Why hasn't the Minnesota and/or D.C. DOJ come forward about the connection?
  10. WERE the emails between Marty and Jim - DESTROYED?
  11. Where is J. Lackner NOW?
  12. Was he put on suspension during the Petters Ponzi case?
  13. WHO ELSE at the DOJ (either/or MN and/or Washington D.C.) KNEW about the connection?
  14. WHY hasn't Petters utilized that issue and Larry Reynolds being in WISTEC to get a New Trial?
  15. If the MN DOJ did NOT know of the connection, surely Marty was under investigation!
  16. Are there files on Marty Lackner?
  17. Where are those files NOW!
  18. Who at the DOJ (MN or otherwise) took control of the Marty Lackner/Jim Lackner review?
  19. IF Marty Lackner did commit suicide - WHY?
  20. MOST importantly - DID MARTY LACKNER actually kill himself?

Marty Lackner was in his 40's, had a wife and 3 children;
and he (purportedly) left NO NOTE!

Is the reporter right?
-------------------- Did Laser Haas get the Marty Lackner thing wrong?

Actually - the reporter is right! - AND - Yours truly didn't get it wrong!

Aha! - - Confused now! - - Aren't you?

You are going to spank me now, for being such a smart ass, in my efforts to stick it up the butt and rotate the naysayers/ Congnitive Dissonance Gangs. Because I could have titled this thing a whole other way, to point out the fact that yours truly didn't get it wrong; and yes - the main stream (VERY main stream) reporter is also correct.

What the media gal (who -btw - is BEGGING for her editor to do the "Haas v Romney" full story) said to yours truly is that "Laser, you're mistaken about your contention on the Marty Lackner story". She is absolutely 100% correct. I did get something wrong.

Of the many remarks that I've made about the case, foolishly trying to defend my remarks against stalwarts, naysayers, petty people and others hell bent to find fault with me (and/or stick their brown nose right up Romney's arse) - are 2 primary statements.

1 - Marty Lackner is the brother of Minnesota Assistant U.S. Attorney Jim Lackner


2 - That "No main stream media outlet has dared to tell the story"

Do you see now - where we are going?

How Laser Haas knows that Marty Lackner is the brother of Minnesota Assistant United States Attorney J. Lackner; is the very FACT that yours truly got the tip straight from the horse's mouth.

Marty Lackner told me that Jim Lackner was his brother.

All the detractors state that yours truly is simply making stuff up. That what I'm guilty of, is taking two people with the same last name; and adding A+B to equal my desired QEZ.


As I've told you, I'm able to prove (by emails and more) how truly full of horse pie the naysayers are.

We now have corroboration, that will (forevermore) shut up the contention that yours truly is simply making stuff up, in order to reach a desired conclusion. As it is now an undeniable FACT that Marty Lackner was involved in Petters Ponzi via Lancelot.

Unfortunately, it is also a FACT that Marty Lackner (purportedly) committed suicide in 2009!
(See Legacy.com Obituary - here and MPR story - here).

- - That being said, it is now also a FACT that Marty Lackner is the brother of Minnesota (former head of Criminal Prosecution Division) - Assistant United States Attorney J. Lackner. As is iterated by Main Justice website (here) that;

James Lackner (Appellate Chief)

Prior to this appointment, Lackner served as Senior Litigation Counsel from December 1994 to August 2005; Criminal Division Chief from August 2005 to April 2007; and First Assistant U.S. Attorney from March 2006 to December 2006. Lackner, who joined the Office in December 1983, graduated from Macalester College in 1975 and Northwestern University Law School in 1978. He joined the Office after working in the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office.

PROOF Marty Lackner and MN AUSA J. Lackner are brothers!

Now, for the final nail in the naysay coffin (that also provides verification that the main stream reporter was correct - yours truly got the Marty Lackner story wrong - one the "issue" that "NO main stream media outlet has reported the Lackner links". Here's an article by Pioneer Press website (TwinCities.com) titled "What did the money men know"?

Which states specifically;

Martin Lackner is also the brother of Jim Lackner, an assistant U.S. attorney in the Minneapolis office. Jim Lackner declined comment. A spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office said Jim Lackner never worked on the Petters or Bell cases. When the U.S. attorney's office learned about Martin Lackner and his relationship to Jim, it notified defense attorneys for both Petters and Bell, he said.


Now, we can all get ready for the naysay kumquats remarking - - "So What"!


As for me, the "List" above and those questions ARE going to be answered;
unless the same type of corruption that hid this issue - prevents my "Haas v Romney"

from going to trial!

N'est-ce pas!

4. Another realm is trying to get me banned for reporting this.


For cry'n out loud - I'm pointing out the fact that a media outlet corroborates the connection; and yet they are still calling it CT (in a Progressive blog).

How is it that NO ONE seems to give a damn that we have enough evidence to put Romney behind bars?

7. PatteRICO website has Great remarks on J Lackner & USA Paulose



It points out DOJ in house squabbling.

Stating of Lackner/Paulose - to wit;

DOJ obviously anticipated some discord in Minneapolis office as a result of her inexperience. I found it interesting that the following paragraph was included in the press release which announced her appointment as Interim US Attorney:

The Justice Department also selected James E. Lackner to serve as the First Assistant United States Attorney. Mr. Lackner has worked as federal prosecutor for more than 22 years in the District of Minnesota, and has more than 17 years of experience in criminal prosecution. Mr. Lackner currently serves as the Chief of the Criminal Division, and previously held the position of Senior Litigation Counsel.

Normally the US Attorney is left to select their own First Assistant — its not “selected” by the Justice Department. Here, DOJ took the unusual step of confirming that an Assistant US Attorney with 22 years experience in Minnesota – then the Criminal Chief (usually the No.3 or 4 slot in an office, depending on organization) would become the First Assistant (the No.2 slot).

Lackner stayed in the job until last December, when Paulose named a new First Assistant, and Lackner went back to being Criminal Chief. Lackner was one of the three managers to resign their management positions.

But, Paulose named another Assistant US Attorney with 18 years experience to be her new First Assistant.

8. Surely given the evidence now at hand - it is possible (maybe even probable) that the


selection of Jim Lackner was for more dubious reasons.
