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


It ain't easy - taking down big sleazies (who rename themselves an hopeful innocuous "Academi"

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"

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


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.

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!
