Real Housewives Stars Gets 39 Count Indictment; while Goldman Sachs 100 Felonies Get a Pass

- - -It's top news on much of main stream media yesterday that the Federal government has announced a 39-count indictment of Real Housewives Star Teresa Giudice and her husband Giuseppe ("Joe" Giudice for FDIC Bank Fraud, Wire Fraud, Mail Fraud, Conspiracy to commit same and Bankruptcy Fraud.

(See Forbes story - HERE - (New Jersey U.S. Attorney Press Release - HERE) - actual indictment - HERE)

What is noteworthy (and I take great issue with)

- is the following remark by the Department of Justice Press Release

- disingenuously stating that;

“Today’s indictment alleges the Giudices did not live up to their responsibilities by failing to file tax returns, falsifying loan applications and concealing assets in their bankruptcy petition. The reality is that this type of criminal conduct will not go undetected and individuals who engage in this type of financial fraud should know they will be held accountable.”

emphasis added to the word "individuals"

Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital's 100 Plus Counts of Felony Violations Get Away - 'SCOT FREE'!

- - What the DOJ Press Release should be saying is;

Look, you 2 TV stars aren't either Goldman Sachs, nor Bain Capital. Now if your last name were Bush or Romney, then - in all probability - you would be considered Above the Law and could get away with all of these assaults upon the Constitution of the United States. Plus Mr. & Mrs. Giudice - you only stole a few million - Goldman Sachs & Bain Capital stole BILLIONS!

You must perpetuate fraud on a Madoff-esque type scale; if you too wish to get off 'Scot Free'.

Romney Didn't Say That 47% Thingy, Goldman Sachs Didn't Do That Fraud Thingy: eToy'ing Around




The Feds can do a RICO seizure of Bain Capital and its eToys holdings
(if someone would get their head out of their ass over there - and Do Their Job!).

-- The New York Supreme Court is about to rule on eToys (renamed ebc1) v Goldman Sachs (more on this below).

Over at the orange realm today, there's a tidbit that Mitt Romney claims he didn't say that - concerning his remark about the 47% of America suckling from the government's tit. ( Pleaseee DailyKos Diary from the Jed Report's Jed Lewison titled "Mitt Romney on his 47 percent comment 'Actually, I didn't say that'".

The fact of the matter is - Mitt DO'd it - and here's the video proof
[br]

[br][hr][br]

Mitt RMoney - the Pathological Liar

What this activist (yours truly being Mitt Romney's very own personal adversary) is waiting upon, is for Mitt to claim that he "Actually didn't write that" - concerning his Federal Election Campaign Finance OGE 278 Form, where the "customizing" of the form states in bogus aplomb that;

Mr. Romney retired from Bain Capital on February 11, 1999 to head the Salt Lake Organizing Committee. Since February 11, 1999, Mr. Romney has not had any active role with any Bain Capital entity and has not been involved in the operations of any Bain Capital entity in any way.

It is now known that the remark that Romney had nothing to do with Bain Capital after February 11, 1999 is an erroneous contention. Thus his campaign did effort to compensate by stating that - Romney was "retroactively" retired from August 2001; back to February 11, 1999.

Capone couldn't "retroactively" retire from organized crime!

New York Times article on Goldman Sachs I.P.O. Fraud of eToys in 1999

In March 2013 Fire Dog Lake has a Diary directly related to this saga,
Titled - - - Mistakenly Released Documents Reveal Goldman Sachs Screwed IPO Clients

Much banter (most correctly) - stipulates therein the FireDogLake comments that Goldman Sachs did a big No NO in our eToys case! - The fact of the matter is, no one appears to know the half of it all. Bain Capital and Goldman Sachs partnered up with each other in a massive crime spree; which I've been trying to get investigate/ arrested and prosecuted for 12 years now (see PoliticusUSA.com story "Meet the Man Battling Romney for 12 years".

- - However, the follow up comments reveal the fact that the public has been kept greatly in the dark about the true issues at hand. Such as the remarks by this FDL commentor that;

eToys later went out of business partly due to lacking capital that it could have raised in a more honest IPO

Goldman is still the villian here, but eToys and the tech bubble in general contributed to the demise of eToys as well. First of all, they spent way, way too much on advertising that didn’t have a payoff (remember pets.com?). eToys also spent much of its resources on unplanned expenses such as hacking prevention, and they paid big fines to the FTC when their delivery system couldn’t keep up with demand (as was true with many other start-ups in 1999/2000). This last issue really hurt the e-commerce sector in general, and it took years to regain people’s trust and rebuild the business model.

eToys filed for bankruptcy in 2001 and was bought out by KBKids.com. When KBKids itself went bankrupt a few years later, it had more to do with bad management, bad strategic decisions and a toxic company culture that discouraged communication between employees and punished anyone who raised issues, no matter how valid. As a result, the company wasted huge amounts of money and resources and eventually just fell apart. Shocker, the CEO was a Bain guy – a cold, humorless, myopic jerk who micromanaged pennies on spreadsheets but threw away millions on bad ideas.


- - First of all - eToys has NOT "demised"
--------------- it is still very much around (Bain Capital owns Toys R Us; which owns eToys)

PLUS - I've got a secret - eToys has been in bankruptcy several times and it was NEVER (really) Bankrupt!

[br][hr][br]

Add Wall Street Journal story - to Rolling Stone cover story and New York Times article

---------- and you still ONLY have a small part of the BIG story

- - -Though these various news stories, blogs, webs and such are reporting on "some" of the bad faith issues. Apparently they are not "getting it" about all of the "REAL" dynamics going on herein. As an example the story that FDL is quoting is the New York Times article "Rigging the I.P.O. Game"

We are all aware the media is rigged; but you have to ask the question that begs - WHY?

- - - The Wall Street Journal did the July 25, 2005 story "eToys Investors Finds Conflict at Law Firm"

and Rolling Stone did the September 2012 cover story "Greed & Debt A True Story About Mitt Romney and Bain Capital"

with the New York Times doing the "Rigging the I.P.O. Game"story

- - Combine all of those facts with the issue of the Minnesota Federal Receiver pointing out that Paul Traub was controller of Petters Ponzi (and Traub is the guy referenced in the Wall Street Journal eToys story). With the additional condemnation that Paul Traub (secret attorney for Mitt Romney/ Bain Capital) was also a partner of fraudster Marc Dreier (see Law360.com Story - here ).

You have ALLof this overwhelming, profuse and irrefutable evidence (even Paul Traub's confessions in the public docket record) and yet no publication, news show, radio show (and not even the Producer of Ed Schultz Show that we talked to often) - has had the common sense to realize how big this story is.

There's a Prize Award Begging to be Received - if someone (like Matt Taibbi) - would tell the WHOLE story.

[br][hr][br]

NY Supreme Court of Appeals Ruling in eToys (ebc1) v Goldman Sachs - Imminent!

- - During all of these stories coming out (while Mitt Romney was running for POTUS), the NY Sup Ct of App did RE-Open the eToys case (see Law360.com story - here ). On May 29, 2013, a hearing transpired at the New York Supreme Court of Appeals (see Court docket PDF - here ). We are waiting for the court's Ruling (any week now).

Will the Court Rule it Can't see what Romney and Goldman Sachs say they didn't do; because they are too big to jail? Even though United States Attorney General Eric Holder is now on the record correcting himself stating;

I meant to say No One's too big to jail ( see Holders remarks Too Big To Jail - here and his retraction and stating NO ONE Too Big to Jail here ) and that it was seconded by NY USA Attorney remarks - here.

--- In the New York Supreme Court case of eToys (renamed ebc1 when Bain Capital "stole" the public company/ federal bankruptcy estate assets) - suing Goldman Sachs for the massive frauds (case number NY Sup. Ct 601805/2002) - it is now a confessed fact that MNAT (Goldman Sachs secret law firm in Delaware) has confessed to lying under oath and hiding the conflict of interest issue that Morris Nichols Arsht and Tunnell "MNAT" - lied to become eToys attorney. Then asked for and received permission to destroy Books & Records (while benefiting from the Perjury).

THUS

-- Goldman Sachs is suing Goldman Sachs in the NY Supreme Court!

------------------------------------How can Goldman Sachs both WIN and Lose at the same time?

Wonder what the N.Y. Supreme Court Ruling will say.....

------------------------------------ Not to fret none, Romney didn't say or do it and Goldman Sachs just screwed it![br]

Just remember the line Dennis Hopper told Christopher Walken about how Italy

was conquered by the Moores -

they can't take reminders of their lineage.

SEC staff morale low, atmosphere marked by distrust: [GAO] study [finds]

Source: Fox Business News

The Securities and Exchange Commission is not the best place to work among federal agencies in Washington, according to a new study by a government watchdog

"Many staff indicated that morale is low and a significant percentage characterize the atmosphere of the agency as one of distrust," the GAO said.

In a letter responding to the GAO study, SEC Chair Mary Jo White said she recognizes there is still "work to do in these areas" and that she is "committed to ensuring that process continues."
The SEC agreed with the report's recommendations, she said. She added that the SEC is taking steps toward addressing workforce competency gaps and improving intra-agency communication.

WOKE UP with a mission!


- - It is amazing. This morning I woke up miffed at the Department of Justice on several levels. It was my intent to do another - "Racketeering Romney" chronicle this morning, strictly on the failures of the DOJ and the SEC. Then - BINGO - look what's in my mailbox from the Bankruptcy News Reporter - "SEC Staff: Morale low, Distrustful"
[hr]
[br]

Rolling Stone Matt Taibbi story points out SEC is like Peyton Place.

- - Many have heard how the SEC blew the Madoff and Stanford cases. That there are also issues of conflicts of interest much. Compounding that is the fact that when the agency gets a John Wayne guy ready to take on the world - it seeks to destroy him (see case of David Weber having to buy/wear a gun to SEC, getting fired, suing them (Rolling Stone Taibbi story - here and winning $580,000 - here ).

- - As a result of the David Weber debacle at the SEC, former Chairperson Schapiro and various other SEC high ups were compelled to resign. Matt Taibbi can take some credit for that, his story shined the light upon the darkness and reactions transpired. Schapiro and her replacement (Mary Jo White) promised they will fix the SEC. For surely another Madoff case of getting away with billions in frauds can't transpire again - correct?

Eaaannnntt! Sorry - the SEC's Promise to make sure another Madoff case doesn't slip the cracks is bogus!

[br][hr][br]

DOJ and SEC are letting a case larger than Madoff slip through their fingers.


- - - What was on my mind this morning (actually last night before I feel asleep) - was to bitch that there IS another case larger than Marc Dreier, Discala/Rothstein, Palm Beach Links Capital, Lancelot/SkyBell, Stanford and Tom Petters (well over $50 billion; because Tom Petters alone was over $42 billion); which the Department of Justice and SEC are not halting, arresting and won't even investigate.

The reason the case is larger - is because they are ALL connected!

- - - Mitt Romney seeks to be "retroactively" retired because Paul Traub is one of his Frank Nitti's and Paul Traub was partners with Marc Dreier during the Tom Petters Ponzi scheme. During the election a report by the Federal Receiver of Petters Ponzi slipped into the night quickly. In June 2012 Douglas Kelly named Paul Traub as the "controller" (facilitator) of Tom Petters Ponzi and has since settled for around $1 million in fees returned (see CT LawTribune.com story - here ).

- - - It is also publicly known that Tagg Romney is involved in the Stanford fraud case. What is not being reported by the press is that Rothstein, connected to Discala, is also connected to Tom Petters Ponzi. As is Palm Beach Links Capital, (Prevost & Harrold already have plead guilty and are waiting for their sentence) Lancelot/ Sky Bell (Greg Bell has plead guilty and is doing 10 years).

The one person who always seems to get away with it all is Mitt Romney's crony Paul Traub.

- - - What most aren't aware (as no main stream will report it) - is the fact that Mitt Romney's other secret attorney was Colm Connolly; who was the Delaware United States Attorney. Colm is not the only issue of federal corruption connected to this saga. Marty Lackner was partners with Greg Bell and purportedly committed suicide before Marty and I could meet and compare notes. J. Lackner is the brother of Marty Lackner.

That would be MN Assistant U.S. Attorney (former head of criminal division) - J. Lackner (some details Public radio - here)

[br][hr][br]

WARNING to SEC - If you don't wish to do the job - then we'll have to do it for you.

- - - Is there a moral to the story - or an end? Maybe, maybe not. Currently, yours truly has come to the conclusion that IF the DOJ and SEC don't desire to prosecute Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital for their massive frauds; then yours truly must become a prosecutor. Now, I can go to school for years - or, I can take advantage of the Congressional proviso of RICO. Congress has made it possible that citizens like you and I can fill in "Prosecutorial Gaps" through the Racketeering Influence Corruption Organizations Act of 1970.

One is not permitted to sue the DOJ or SEC for Breach of Fiduciary Duty;

--------------------------------but one can sure as hell give em Hell and sue Romney & Bain for Racketeering!



TV Reporters Scamed: Asiana Airlines Crash Pilot has Sum Ding Wong With His Identity.

- - This one will crack you up, so put down the coffee and soda before you read this story.

As reported yesterday, on several media outlets, Asiana Airlines is intending to sue media outlets who did a story on the purported names of the Pilots of the plane that crashed in San Francisco. The names - as reported by a San Fran TV station are;

  1. Captian Sum Ting Wong
  2. Wi Tu Low
  3. Ho Lee Fuk
  4. Band Ding Ow


Professor Jonathan Turley's blog has this recap story "Chump Tort? Asiana Airlines To Sue San Francisco TV Station Over Fake Names Of Pilots In Crash". In it he remarks that;

Unbelievably, as shown below, no one at KTVU-TV picked up on the joke and the anchor read the names in all seriousness. It turns out that a summer intern with the National Transportation Safety Board was the culprit in passing along the names. Now, Asiana is suing the station for injury to its reputation, a novel claim that could raise questions over not just the fact of injury but the degree of injury in such a prank.

[br]

- - The Los Angeles Times reports ( here ) that the intern is no longer with the National Transportation Safety Board. And I concur with Professor Turley's conclusion. This case has less chance of success than a George Zimmerman not guilty verdict.

Goodwin Weber, on Behalf of DOJ Employees, Intends Class Action Against Sec. of Labor Perez

Source: Wall Street Journal Online

WASHINGTON, July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- According to a number of Department of Justice (DOJ) employees, the Civil Rights Division, at the direction of Thomas Perez and his senior staff, began a widespread campaign of disparate and discriminatory treatment earlier this year against Civil Rights Division employees who struggled with mobility, hearing, vision, emotional, physical or mental challenges and disabilities, as well as those under protected status based on race, gender, age, and/or parental status.

"Upon opposing this widespread and unlawful discrimination, DOJ employees have been subjected to an exceptionally hostile work environment and unlawful retaliation," said the DOJ employees' attorney, David P. Weber of Goodwin Weber PLLC. "We call on Congress to investigate these serious allegations, hold Mr. Perez's nomination pending investigation, and demand that the Attorney General take immediate steps to curtail the discrimination and retaliation."

-----------------------------------------------

Six of the DOJ employees have filed EEO complaints or alleged mistreatment, including physical assault. The DOJ employees include two senior trial attorneys, one African American female, one Hispanic male, a white disabled female sign language interpreter, a disabled former Voting Rights Section analyst, a disabled former paralegal specialist, and the DOJ's only disabled African American architect. Each of these employees is over age 40 and thus protected under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. The Hispanic trial attorney is a founder of the national Hispanic Bar Association and a founder of the local District of Columbia Hispanic Bar Association.

----------------------------------------------

Added Weber, "The compromised integrity of DOJ civil rights and EEOC compliance results not only in past and current harm to my clients who have received retaliation for coming forward, but deceived Congress and the American public by presenting under-reported, inaccurate information to Congress."

ANNOUNCE WHISTLEBLOWER, RETALIATION AND DISCRIMINATION CLAIMS AGAINST SECRETARY OF LABOR NOMINEE TOM PEREZ

MAKE DEMAND FOR DISCRIMINATION AND RETALIATION TO CEASE
AND
CALL FOR CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATIONS


Today, a diverse group of current and former members of the United States Department of Justice Civil Rights Division met with staff of the United States Senate-both Republican and Democrat-to outline substantial misconduct allegations against Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez. Mr. Perez is pending confirmation before the Senate as Secretary of Labor, and is rumored to be considered for a vote as early as this weekend.

Earlier this year, the Civil Rights Division, at the direction of Mr. Perez and his senior staff, began a widespread campaign of disparate treatment discrimination against Civil Rights Division employees who were disabled (mobility; hearing; vision; emotional; physical or mental condition); as well as of protected status based on race; gender; age; and/or parental status.

Yet, my clients have reported to Congress that under Mr. Perez, the Civil Rights Division rampantly discriminates against its own workforce, and retaliates against those brave enough to raise their hand.”

Mr. Weber further stated that, “after investigating the complaints of these whistleblowers, it appears it is ‘Opposites Day’ at the Department of Justice. While Mr. Perez and senior management of the Civil Rights Division sue private employers for discrimination and retaliation, they have no hesitance in discriminating against their own disabled, minority, whistleblowing staff. This cannot stand. We call on Congress to investigate these serious allegations, hold Mr. Perez’ nomination pending investigation, and demand that the Attorney General take immediate steps to curtail the discrimination and retaliation.”

David Weber Took On the SEC and David Weber Won $580,000 & His Job Back If He Wanted

For those of you who may or may not have viewed the earlier background stories, David Weber is the former Securities and Exchange Commission Office of Inspector General (police of SEC) who was retaliated against for investigating the head management of the SEC for bad faith acts. Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone reported on the initial story, detailing a "Peyton Place" environment. When Mr. Weber felt threatened, he began to carry a gun - and the SEC fired him. But David Weber sued the SEC and prevailed, getting $580,000 and an offer by the SEC to reinstate him. (See my former DU Thread here http://www.democraticunderground.com/1014504933 )

Now, David Weber is utilizing his experience to truly make a difference and is becoming an American Super Hero!

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE CIVIL RIGHTS DIVISION SENIOR STAFF
ANNOUNCE WHISTLEBLOWER, RETALIATION AND DISCRIMINATION CLAIMS AGAINST SECRETARY OF LABOR NOMINEE TOM PEREZ

MAKE DEMAND FOR DISCRIMINATION AND RETALIATION TO CEASE
AND
CALL FOR CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATIONS

Today, a diverse group of current and former members of the United States Department of Justice Civil Rights Division met with staff of the United States Senate-both Republican and Democrat-to outline substantial misconduct allegations against Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez. Mr. Perez is pending confirmation before the Senate as Secretary of Labor, and is rumored to be considered for a vote as early as this weekend.

Earlier this year, the Civil Rights Division, at the direction of Mr. Perez and his senior staff, began a widespread campaign of disparate treatment discrimination against Civil Rights Division employees who were disabled (mobility; hearing; vision; emotional; physical or mental condition); as well as of protected status based on race; gender; age; and/or parental status. Upon opposing this widespread, unlawful discrimination, DOJ employees have been subjected to an exceptionally hostile work environment and unlawful retaliation.

In addition, members of the Civil Rights Division also presented evidence to the Senate today of statistical evidence of disparate impact discrimination under the leadership of Mr. Perez. During Mr. Perez’ time as head of the Civil Rights Division, hiring and employment of Hispanic staff has decreased by a statistically significant percentage. But for discrimination, there is no legal explanation for the decline in minority hiring under Mr. Perez’ leadership.

The DOJ whistleblowers include two senior trial attorneys, one African American female, one Hispanic male; a white disabled female sign language interpreter; a disabled former Voting Rights Section analyst; an African American breast cancer-survivor paralegal specialist; a disabled former paralegal specialist; and the disabled African American architect who designed the only building bearing U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall’s name, built during his lifetime. Each of these employees is also over age 40, and thus protected under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. The Hispanic trial attorney whistleblower is the former founder of the national Hispanic Bar Association, as well as a founder of the local, District of Columbia Hispanic Bar Association.

In addition to Goodwin Weber PLLC’s whistleblower clients, approximately ten other DOJ Civil Rights officials have come forward as witnesses and provided corroborating information supporting these allegations. Goodwin Weber PLLC’s investigators met with each witness personally. The whistleblowers and witnesses are residents of the District of Columbia, Virginia, and Maryland. Two are also former residents of California.

According to the DOJ whistleblowers and witnesses, the Perez actions are directed at preserving the positions of political appointees who have “burrowed” into Civil Rights Division through Perez’s patronage. Now, under fiscal constraints, Perez has directed senior DOJ staff to constructively terminate career staff in order to protect the political appointees from a Reduction in Force.

In addition, according to the DOJ whistleblowers, shortly after arriving at DOJ, Perez began apparent attempts at suppressing documentation of EEO violations within the Civil Rights Division. What first appeared to be numerous individual cases of discrimination has now aggregated over time to reveal a systemic practice of intentional noncompliance with federal sector EEO policies applicable to all federal agencies. In this manner, DOJ deflected and minimized the nature and severity of employee requests for EEOC compliance, creating a false and misleading "appearance" of "model agency" compliance within the Civil Rights Division.

The compromised integrity of DOJ civil rights EEOC compliance results not only in past and current harm to the numerous individual complainants who have risked and received retaliation for coming forward, but deceived Congress and the American public by presenting under-reported, inaccurate information to Congress that belies the actual enforcement of civil rights within the Department of Justice.

David P. Weber, the DOJ whistleblowers’ attorney, issued the following statement: “Tom Perez has been nominated to be the protector of the American workforce. Yet, my clients have reported to Congress that under Mr. Perez, the Civil Rights Division rampantly discriminates against its own workforce, and retaliates against those brave enough to raise their hand.”

Mr. Weber further stated that, “after investigating the complaints of these whistleblowers, it appears it is ‘Opposites Day’ at the Department of Justice. While Mr. Perez and senior management of the Civil Rights Division sue private employers for discrimination and retaliation, they have no hesitance in discriminating against their own disabled, minority, whistleblowing staff. This cannot stand. We call on Congress to investigate these serious allegations, hold Mr. Perez’ nomination pending investigation, and demand that the Attorney General take immediate steps to curtail the discrimination and retaliation.”


Mr. Weber is the principal attorney and a certified fraud examiner in Goodwin Weber, PLLC’s Washington, DC Office. He is licensed to practice law in New York, Maryland and the District of Columbia, as well as before the United States Supreme Court. Goodwin Weber PLLC is a boutique law firm with offices in Montgomery County, Maryland, New York City, and the District of Columbia. Mr. Weber is the former Assistant Inspector General for Investigations at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and himself a prominent whistleblower. Mr. Weber also teaches fraud, forensic investigation and accounting at the University of Maryland University College. You can read more about Mr. Weber’s practice at www.goodwinweberlaw.com.

Breaking News: DOJ Whistleblowers Charge Assistant AG Thomas Perez with Discrimination, Retaliation et al



[center][div style="display:inline; background-color:#F7F8E0;"]"David Weber Deserves Our Respect" [/center]

[div style="display:inline; background-color:#F7F8E0;"]- - Some are being too quick to rush to judgment and/or pounce upon Mr. Weber; simply because he was on a television show would rather not watch. If Matt Taibbi had a T.V. Network - or DailyKos radio asked him to appear - then we wouldn't have this problem. Nor is Lawrence O'Donnell, Ed Schultz or any other is serving U.S. by presenting David Weber in proper fashion or platform. As there are far too few who stand tall against tyranny, cronyism and corruption. As well as WAY too few ever prevailing (in short order as Mr. Weber has) - one would think Progressive media outlets would rush to promote his good form & character.

To those seeking to disparage David Weber, here's the Democrat - you're falsely inferring is right-wing;

  1. - - Mr. Weber, like myself, is a fellow jew. Granted there are some RW yid's; but David ain't one of them.
  2. - - David was an attorney at Law for a Union
  3. - - He's from New York City (as am I)
  4. - - Mr. Weber was part of litigation to halt Bank's abuse in Payday Loans
  5. - - David represented employees of the National Treasury Union in equal employment opportunity issues
  6. - - Weber is a member of both Gaithersburg's Police Advisory Commission and Tenant Landord
  7. - - David has extensive works in forensics, frauds and, as is now well known, the SEC OIG
  8. - - He is defending disabled, African American and Latino's against big gov bad faith parties like Mr. Perez

- - David Weber is OUR (DU's) type of guy. The SEC put all its power, might and corrupt influence (and press leaks) in a quest to destroy him. - And David Weber BEAT the SEC's Corruption in short order!

-- Is Mr. Weber perfect? Probably not. However, this blogger, Laser (the Liquidator) Haas has come to despise attorneys at law; because every single one that has worked for me - Sold me Out. Yours truly just so happens to be a whistleblower, victim and witness. I'm burdened with the fact that David Weber can't be my counsel; because eToys is an outstanding SEC issue. As a matter of law (and proper jurisprudence on Conflict of Interest ethics) - - Mr. Weber is barred from touching SEC issues - for 2 years from his exit of the SEC.

[center]But I sure wish I could hire him - there would be none better for the job![/center]

UPDATE July 15, 2013 7:37 pm Pacific - Brand New - LATEST BREAKING NEWS - Wall Street Journal and others now telling the story (see LBN - here)

Romney is BACK as a Politico? I DON'T Think So - He Has a Steel Cell Awaiting.

- - Just last week, a new book was released titled "Presidential Puppetry" by Washington D.C. insider Andrew Kreig (founder of the Justice Integrity Project - {we got "JIP'd"}). Don't go and read it, both Obama's camp and Romney's camp (as well as all of those involved in Benghazi) - HATE IT; because the truth hurts. It reveals secrets that everyone in D.C. is well aware of; but all of U.S. citizenry would rather not know. (Though one would argue that, if the book is true, Big O should "come out".

- - As a result of the book's author being a "Fellow", the mentioning of Laser Haas's (yours truly) battle with Romney has garnered much attention. Mr. Kreig is not just some ordinary bloke. He worked for Hillary's campaign, gets calls from people like Senator Ted Stevens (when he was with U.S.), parties running for office and more. Such as Governor Siegelman who was punished for doing nothing wrong but saying no to Karl Rove's agenda and Thane Ritchie who sat on a panel during the premiere of Second Fraud in Minnesota (a movie about being a Ponzi viction of Tom Petters and getting ripped off by the system when federal Receivers take all they can get).

- - Furthermore, Andrew Kreig is an attorney at Law (remember, writing a book and making allegations - while holding a BAR card - is a ground where angels {and even SCOTUS's} fear to tread). Mr. Kreig also meets and greats with people on the Hill, like Senators, Congressmen. If not, he is having drinks at the National Press Club, where he is a member - often.


Due to Romney's POTUS run, articles about our battles with Romney (such as Rolling Stone "Greed & Debt" and N.Y. Times "Rigging the I.P.O. Game", combined with Andrew Kreig's book and Rmuse at PoliticusUSA.com; discussions with film/ book Producers has begun on the Laser v Romney story. Putting it succinctly, I'm trying to put Mitt Romney and his RICO Gang in jail. Clear Channel Communications is a result of Racketeering monies; and I'm doing my utmost to put his "highness" out of commission.

AND I'm WINNING (see links below)
[br][hr][br]




Word on the street is Paul Traub (Mitt Romney's secret attorney/pal/ benefiter) is being cut loose; because Mitt Romney didn't make it (and was therefore unable to get that "friendly" U.S. Attorney General that Sheldon Adelson was dishing $100 million out for). Paul Traub is a rung on the ladder that's expendable; because he simply has done to much to keep covering it all up anymore.

- - As a result of people contacting me from the book (only 2 pages) - I just learned that Traub is also connected to another fraud/scam (Syntax Brillian). Silver Point Capital, founded by Ward Mooney of Gordon Brothers, along with Credit Suisse (there with Romney & Michael Glazer & Paul Traub in Stage Stores); are supposed to be the key parties owed the most - to be paid 1st - by Syntax. However, if you will look at the links below (which demonstrates Laser is getting close to winning the eToys battle) - you will also see that Paul Traub has "much x'splain'n to do"....

The house of cards is falling and the insignificant Laser is kicking Romney,
MNAT, Bain, Goldman Sachs and Traub --in their proverbial's!



Paul Traub was involved in

1. Enron (people went to jail)
2. Adelphia (Rigas father son went to jail)
3. Partners with Marc Dreier (Dreier doing 20 years)
4. Larry Reynolds doing 10 years (Petters Ponzi)
5. Greg Bell doing 10 years (Petters Ponzi/ Sky Bell/ Lancelot)
6. Palm Beach Links Capital (Bruce Prevost/ David Harrold plead guilty - awaiting sentencing)
7. Frank Vennes/ Petters Ponzi plead guilty (awaiting sentencing)
8. Mike Catain/ Petters Ponzi (doing 10 years)
9. Fed Receiver said Traub was "controller" Tom Petters (Petters doing 50 years)
10. Okun 1031 Tax Group (Traub and partners worked both sides) - Okun doing 100 years
11. Rothstein/Discala Petters Ponzi
12. Madoff/ Jupiter/Palm Beach Florida is now known as Ponzi Island (Gabriel Fund/Cerberus feeder fund Madoff)

And all of that could have been greatly avoided (including the Stanford scandal with Tagg Romney involved) - had the federal authorities arrested Paul Traub, instead of rewarding him with Polaroid for free. Because Romney, Traub and MNAT had a secret friend in the Department of Justice (Colm F Connolly). They spent $1 billion and "believed" their RICO mob boss was going to become POTUS. Whereas Laser Haas, an amoeba in consequence, simply utilized the inflexible sword of truth;

and Romney didn't make it!

Here's the email being given to producer/reporters and such - after the book ("Presidential Puppetry" came out last week;
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Every once in a while comes along a story of an anti-hero battling the rich and powerful, armed with nothing more than the inflexible sword, who utilizes such to slay a horde of Goliath's. Such is the tale of Haas, an insignificant amoeba battling Mitt Romney for 12 years. I've spent thousands and Romney's team spent over a billion dollars; and Romney didn't make it!


Federal Corruption, a billionaire, crooked lawyers, an autocratic U.S. Attorney who sells out his country for his hope to become a federal justice and mayhem, suicides/ murder. Where Romney & his RICO Gang are literally stealing candy from babies and "toying" around. (Kay Bee, FAO Schwartz, the Parent Company, Babies R Us, Toys R Us and eToys).

And there's mayhem and murder too
(more on that in the future)

Better go look/see before they unfollow me (cause I'm point it out)

10. Head of Public Corruption Task Force investigating case ...and a girl from the NY Sup Court ethics commission came forward and testified that Judge's chambers and attorneys computers were being tapped to force judges off cases (including in the questing were remarks on bizarre case of Paul Traub)




and word on the street is Paul Traub is in a panic as the sacrificial lamb....


Sincerely
Laser Haas
Justice is due diligence

[br][hr][br]

As soon as I finish the final draft and my counsel approves; I'm filing a RICO Complaint/ Indict against Romney, Colm Connolly, MNAT, Goldman Sachs, Michael Glazer, Bain Capital, Barry Gold and PAUL TRAUB.

Here's the pic that sums it all up in a nutshell (and I've already told Bain & GSachs it's coming);
if they don't do me in - they have to settle - MNAT and Traub have already confessed (in part - enough to convict).



[br][hr][br]

UPDATE: 4 pm pacific July 12

More proof that justice is coming. Wall Street Journal ordered all reporters OFF the story (share the building with Ropes & Gray - Romney's/ Bain law firm during eToys/ Kay Bee). The editors at WSJ said Hell would freeze over before they told any more of the story.

MUST be why we having Global Warming and real hot SoCal - as the banning of my commenting is also pardoned (apparently)
