No one who has received amnesty for a serious crime, such as tax evasion, can be president. One would think that someone for whom the clear implications are that he has received amnesty, but will not release exculpatory documents, also cannot be president.
As the press has been focused on what we now know as Romney's "retroactive retirement", that does not help him escape clear responsibility for his outsourcing strategy anyhow, I have tried to shine a light on the clearest, cleanest, unspinnable, problem with Romney's finances -- amnesty for his Swiss accounts -- suggesting that the Republican leaders, who dislike him anyhow, could not abide such a fatally-flawed nominee.
But, all I had on my side was logic. Why would he have closed only the Swiss Account when the Cayman/Bermuda accounts are also abusive tax havens, and he left those alone? Why would Romney have bothered to close the Swiss account at all? I deduced that what was special about his Swiss Account was the amnesty program allowed by the IRS. I also surmised that it was amnesty, more than anything else, that would keep him from releasing earlier tax returns.
Now, through investigative reporting, there is highly suggestive evidence that the logic was not wrong. Romney failed to disclose the documents he filed with the IRS in 2010, the year he has already released, that detail his Swiss Account holdings.
Hence, I am now prepared to go beyond my suggestions that the Republicans would not give him the nomination to a firm prediction: Romney will not be the 2012 Republican nominee for president. (He may be the "retroactive 2008 nominee" as Darrell Issa, who also cannot run for higher office due to his shady past, suggests).
Who will be? Before Romney is forced to withdraw, he will make a Vice Presidential selection, as an attempt to make it seem that his nomination is just rolling along, and is inevitable.
That person will have been fully vetted, (including his/her tax returns!).
I predict, therefore, that the Republican nominee for president will be the person Romney selects as his VP.
How ironic if that turned out to be T-Paw, who dropped out after losing to Michelle Bachmann in Iowa, (and whom Lawrence O'Donnell picked all along) becomes the 2012 Republican nominee for president!
Pawlenty? Bring him on!
Conservative Blogger to Pawlenty: What About The Minn. Bridge Collapse On Your Watch? Posted on May 26, 2011 by Larry Ehl Share on twitterShare on facebookShare on bloggerShare on googleMore Sharing Services Conservative blogger Nicole Gelinas of The National Review suggests that Presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota must “explain to the American public what he learned from the collapse of the I-35W bridge into the Mississippi in 2007. The bridge fell down at the end of Pawlenty’s first four years as the ultimate person in charge of the state’s infrastructure.” (Link to story.)
Gelinas notes that Barry LePatner, a top construction lawyer, wrote the following about the bridge failure in his 2010 book, Too Big to Fall:
“Yet there should be no doubt that inadequate funding was a key factor in MN/DOT’s decisions not only to call off the planned retrofitting of the bridge but also to forgo nondestructive testing that would have revealed the full extent of fatigue cracking on the bridge. And it was inadequate resources for remediation that led to the decision to put off until 2022 the deck replacement that would have added redundancy to the bridge. Moreover, it was not until after the I-35W Bridge fell into the Mississippi and killed 13 people that Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty gave up his previously unshakable opposition to raising the state’s gasoline tax, thus providing needed revenues for the financial starved MN/DOT.” Pawlenty should answer these questions, Gelina suggests:
Does he agree with LePatner’s assessment? (LePatner has previously helped write such potboilers as Structural and Foundational Failures: A Casebook for Architects, Engineers, and Lawyers.)
Does the former governor think that the bridge collapse was preventable, or should Americans expect such tragedies to occur without warning from time to time?
If the collapse was preventable, who or what should have prevented it?
Does Pawlenty wish that he had done something differently, as governor, in terms of prioritizing spending in the state budget to make money for infrastructure, and then making sure that the infrastructure money was spent well?
Was the I-35 tragedy a wake-up call for Pawlenty to pay more attention to aging infrastructure in his state? If so, how did he wring something positive out of the disaster?
What are Pawlenty’s suggestions to Congress on a new transportation-funding bill?
The National Review is widely read within Republican circles, and reporters are always looking for some possibly-controversial issues to raise. So it’s probably only a matter of time before Pawlenty gets some of these questions from an enterprising reporter.

Republican Sugar Daddy Sheldon Adelson "Approved Prostitution" in his hotel Martin Bashir and William Cohen, MSNBC tiptoe around Adelson prostitution bombshell

It looks like they don't want to mention that Adelson is under investigation by Chinese police as well as the US Department of Jusitce and the Securities and Exchange Commission for prostitution and organized crime connections in his Macau hotel.. Go to and learn more!

DCCC: Scott DesJarlais and Chinese Prostitution?
News release from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee:
Foreign Chinese prostitution money is allegedly behind the groups funding Congressman Scott DesJarlais's (TN-04) Republican Majority.

The Associated Press reported that Sheldon Adelson - the single largest donor to Congressman Scott DesJarlais's House Republicans - allegedly "personally approved of prostitution and knew of other improper activity at his company's properties in the Chinese enclave" of Macau, China. Recently, Senator John McCain said that Adelson is "injecting millions of dollars in Chinese 'foreign money'" by contributing to Republican campaigns.

"What will Congressman Scott DesJarlais do when his Chinese prostitution money comes from billionaire Sheldon Adelson?" said Jesse Ferguson of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. "House Republicans like Congressman DesJarlais are fighting tirelessly to protect billionaires like Sheldon Adelson who make fortunes overseas and Adelson is now the largest single donor to Congressman DesJarlais's Republican Majority. It's past time for Congressman DesJarlais to reject the support of these groups funded by foreign money from a Chinese prostitution strategy."

Billionaire Adelson has given $5 million to Speaker Boehner's Congressional Leadership Fund Super PAC, pledged $5 million to Leader Cantor's Young Guns Network Super PAC, given $70,800 to the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), and has committed at least $20 million into Karl Rove's American Crossroads. Earlier this year, ABC News found that Adelson's company "has been under criminal investigation for the last year by the Department of Justice and the Securities Exchange Commission for alleged bribery of foreign officials."

Sheldon Adelson Approved 'Prostitution Strategy': Fired Former Sands Executive. "The fired former chief executive of Las Vegas Sands Corp.'s Macau casinos alleges in court documents revealed Thursday that billionaire Sheldon Adelson personally approved of prostitution and knew of other improper activity at his company's properties in the Chinese enclave."

John McCain: Adelson is injecting Millions of Foreign Money into Politics. "John McCain (R-AZ) said Thursday that casino magnate Sheldon Adelson is indirectly injecting millions of dollar in Chinese 'foreign money' into Mitt Romney's presidential election effort. 'Much of Mr. Adelson's casino profits that go to him come from his casino in Macau, which says that obviously, maybe in a roundabout way foreign money is coming into an American political campaign,' McCain said in an interview on PBS's News Hour. [Foreign Policy, 6/15/12]

Adelson's Company Has Been Under Federal Investigation. "The casino company run by the principal financial backer of Newt Gingrich's presidential bid, Sheldon Adelson, has been under criminal investigation for the last year by the Department of Justice and the Securities Exchange Commission for alleged bribery of foreign officials, according to corporate documents." [ABC News, 1/27/12]

"Pro Life" hypocritical liar "Mitt The Mormon" Romney made money from fetus disposal.

The problem here isn't disposal of aborted fetuses-- the problem is "who is Mitt Romney?" As a Mormon Romney believes that whatever serves his Mormon religion is the truth, not the other way around. Mitt Romney believes that he is the realization of con man prophet Joseph Smith's White Horse Prophecy which predicted Mormon rule for America. What financial gain accrues to Romney also is sacred to the Mormon Church as he tithes to the cult (and more) in order to assure that once he dies he becomes a god of his very own planet with his very own bevy of multiple wives.

Mitt Romney On Abortion 2006 he supports women
s right to choose and will never flip flop on it- it's a principle he learned from his own mother!

What's your position on abortion? "I'm pro life."
