Benedict the German’s Legacy - Ungehorsam - Disobedience

He looks tired.

He went to Mexico and the Mexican bishops did not present any clergy abuse victims for him to apologize to.

No clergy abuse in Mexico?  Not according to the Judenrat bishops there.

Well he looks tired and he will die soon and go to his eternal reward.  His judgment for acts here on this earth is between himself and his God.

"The evil that men do lives after them,
The good is oft interred with their bones."

At the end of an almost thirty year period where he and Karol Wojtyla openly conspired against the faithful, forged an unholy alliance to steal God's good grace from the faithful, and appoint “yes men”, Judenrat boot licking bishops like in Mexico and worldwide, he complains about dissent in the ranks.

“Ungehorsam” “Disobedience” to the Papal King. To the Magisterium – the Papal Mafia Crime Empire.

Disobedience to Evil is no sin. It is a Virtue.

Jesus fought against priests. Priests plotted to kill Jesus. The Priests are still with us.  And now some are disobedient to his imperial majesty.
In the old days, disobedience got you shot in the Wehrmacht.

Where is Mitt Romney’s Birth Certificate? - and his Claim to Mexican Citizenship

Everybody is too nice and PC about Mitt Romney and his grandfather and half a dozen grandmothers, one of which gave birth to his father, George Romney in 1907 in Mexico in a Mormon Polygamy Colony south of the border. If Mitt’s father was born in Mexico, the former Michigan governor and Secretary of HUD under Nixon, had claim to Mexican Citizenship.

Where was Mitt Romney born? Where is his birth certificate? Why is he hiding it and the names of his perhaps many stepmoms?

No, you read that right. You might think birthers are crazy conspiracy theorists, but you can't say they're inconsistent. The fringe group of politicians and concerned voters who have long dogged President Obama for "proof" that he is a natural born citizen are now targeting Mitt Romney. They demand that the California Secretary of State produce evidence that Mitt is eligible to run for president. One birther explains that Romney's citizenship is up for debate because his dad was born in Mexico. Thats right, Mitt Romney's father was born in the Mexican colony that Mitt's great-grandfather founded after fleeing the United States so he could stay married to Romney's four great-grandmothers. Let's all just let that sink in for a moment.

Mormons like Romney like sending secret contributions to the NOM, National Organization of Marriage, to put down gay marriage as bizarre.

That from a Mormon Polygamist family member is quite bizarre of and by itself?

How many wives does Romney keep in all those 15 mansions he owns nationwide?

If Ann Romney becomes first lady, what do we call all of Mitt's other wives?


Titanic and the Power of the Secular God

There is this western obsession about the biggest boat ever built at the time, the fastest boat, and the hand of God could not sink this boat thing, that lingers now to a centennial mark on April 15.

I, as a youth, was fascinated with the Titanic myth of Icarus and its failing and sinking going back fifty years. There was a big layout in the Philadelphia Sunday Inquirer edition that spread and reiterated all the myths about the great British super liner on the fiftieth anniversary of its sinking.

I saw that Clifton Webb, Barbara Stanwyck movie Titanic http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0046435/ on TV that weekend I think to boost the propaganda myth of man’s invincibility and technology. That flick also pointed out the form of an iceberg’s passive natural power to crash the hearts of man and his invincible mythology. I also eventually saw the B&W British film A Night to Remember http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0051994/.  

So when we as a family were walking out of a movie and into a movie lobby in Arizona in 1997 and seeing the posters of the new flick Titanic to be released at Christmas 1997, I yawned and said aloud “Wow, another Titanic film. What a bomb that will be.” Of course I was wrong on that one. Wasn’t I? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120338/

I understood the myth. Another generation had yet to introduce itself to the myth and its hidden lessons.

The incredible failure of common sense to wrap itself around technology’s 1912 myth was one of the reasons for the failure.  The engineers and designers of Titanic thought it would float if damaged because of untested technological theories about what watertight compartments could or could not do in a worst case scenario. In such a case, no need for so many obsolete lifeboats to spoil the traveler’s view. 

Obviously, dumb icebergs have their own agendas regarding man and his technologies of the day. Of course we are talking 1912 technology. Think about how man and his myth and his modern day secular worship of technology are in 2012.  Holy Shit!

The younger generation, the tech generation, the Internet generation, re-embraced the Titanic myth once again in 1997.

So why the fascination?  I think it is the valuable lesson that all our knowledge and all our current technologies do not foresee the unforeseeable.  Man is limited even in his madness about how great he is among the creation of the universe, and in blind governance of the things of this planet.

“Man is the measure of all things.”  When man sets himself up in the secular role of an all-powerful and perfect God role on the earth, it is important that major failures be reported, told and retold again in myth to remind us all of how limited in scope and purpose he is in the ultimate scheme of things in the Universe.

Cardinal Dolan's Bigotry Treats Gays Like Lepers - (Jesus was wrong in loving everyone?)

It's okay to touch her Holy Father - she's not Gay.


The head of New York's Roman Catholic archdiocese faces a challenge to his stance on gay rights: the resignation of a church official who says he's "had enough" of the cardinal's attitude.

Joseph Amodeo told The Associated Press on Saturday that he quit the junior board of Catholic Charities after Cardinal Timothy Dolan failed to respond to a "call for help" for homeless youths who are not heterosexual.

The conflict began when Carl Siciliano of the Ali Forney Center for homeless gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender young people wrote Dolan, saying his "loud and strident voice against the acceptance of LGBT people" creates "a climate where parents turn on their own children."

Dolan responded that he's following church teachings. His response prompted Amodeo to quit.

Dolan heads the nation's largest archdiocese.

Cedric Tornay - Vatican’s Lee Harvey Oswald? - Swiss Guards Murder Coverup?

Cedric Tornay - Murderer or Hierarchy Scapegoat?

Warning: This a not a conspiracy theory but it is, as I favor things in studying history, a timeline thing that may or may shed some light on a chain of events on that timeline, events that may or may not be as they officially seem. 

Yet there are whispers that even timid Justin Rigali may have gotten into a bit of hot water in Rome. He was working as secretary of the Congregation for Bishops, which is the number two position in the second-most important congregation in the Vatican; that congregation recommends candidates for bishop. 

The secretary almost always serves at least five years. But Rigali was moved out after four years and one month—that’s when he was sent to St. Louis, to oversee the archdiocese there. One theory has it that Rigali may have gotten too aggressive in pushing his choices for bishops—that he might have, in other words, crossed someone in the Vatican with enough power to undermine his career. 

There are also repeated, though unsubstantiated, rumors—ones cited by several Vatican or Rigali observers I spoke to—that there might have been another reason he left Rome. While at the Vatican, Rigali became chaplain for the Swiss Guards, the ex-military guys, young and unmarried, who provide security there. Uncharacteristic of a man dedicated to carefully building a Vatican career, Rigali befriended them, drank with them, and was involved with them to an extent that appeared unseemly to many. “Princes of the Church do not drink with the hired help,” one longtime Vatican observer says. (The archdiocese also said it will not dignify questions about Rigali and the Swiss Guards with a response.)

In 1999, in frail health and on his way home from Mexico, Pope John Paul II would make an unprecedented stop in St. Louis to see his long-time Vatican worker bee. It seemed to be a clear message: You are still one of us.

The cardinal, now 76, appears to want to get back to Rome—where his gray presence is suited for behind-the-scenes work. “He runs off to Rome every two weeks,” says a local priest who worked in the archdiocese’s office and got to know Rigali when both of them were at the Vatican two decades ago. “His work there is more important to him than here—it’s a terrible thing for the parishioners and clergy.” Many observers believe that the Vatican will soon find someone new to run the Philadelphia archdiocese. 

Clinton, JPII, Rigali, St. Louis January 1999

St. Louis' Archbishop Justin Rigali announced the visit (John Paul II) to the St. Louis media on Thursday, April 22, 1998.

Cedric Tornay, Gladys Meza (Estermann), Alois Estermann

A murder-suicide (May 4,1998) involving the Swiss Guard that rocked the Vatican in a mystery worthy of a Dan Brown thriller is back in the spotlight after Pope Benedict XVI was asked to intervene and reopen the case.

Swiss Guard Cedric Tornay, 23, shot dead the famous unit's commanding officer Alois Estermann, 43, and his wife Gladys Meza before turning the gun on himself - allegedly in a fit of rage after being overlooked for promotion.

Within hours of the triple deaths in 1998 - the first violent deaths on Vatican soil in decades - officials closed the case saying it was a simple case of corporal Tornay having gone mad after being given medication for a brain tumour.

Mr Brossellett added that he had found 'inconsistencies' in the official autopsy report provided by the Vatican after they had a second one carried out in Lausanne when the body was returned to his native Switzerland.

…He said:'Our autopsy showed that Cedric Tornay was turned at the time of the shot but the Vatican one said he was on his knees and facing forward. So their reconstruction is wrong.'

Mr Brossellett also said that they had discovered the night of the murders a friend of Estermann's had called his apartment and had heard 'bangs and shouting' and that he thought four people were in the house at the time of the killings.

Mrs Baudat said:'As far as I am concerned the original investigation is full of lies and contradictions and was carried out at such a speed so as to hide the real truth. It was a murder carried out to get Estermann out of the way and then helpfully blame it on a dead madman.'

(No doubt when Cardinal Law dropped the ball in Boston in 2002 and the bigger picture of institutional abuse and cover up became apparent nationwide, John Paul II was eager to appoint a loyal soldier, Rigali, who may have owed JPII a Vatican favor or two or three (?), to keep a lid on the Krol/Bevilacqua abuse cover-ups in Philly.  While John Paul II owed little to Bevilacqua, he owed his very papacy directly to John Cardinal Krol of Philadelphia.)

John Cardinal Krol of Philadelphia - King Maker

Now we have the Monsignor Lynn Child Endangerment trial going on currently in Philadelphia. Etc. One thing follows another? 

So it goes.


Eat the Rich - Greek Suicides


Dimitris Christoulas, the 77-year-old retired pharmacist who shot himself on Syntagma Square in Athens because, as he said in the note he left behind, he would rather die than scavenge in rubbish bins for his food, is not the first and will most certainly not be the last Greek to take his own life during this crisis.

To the People of God in Philadelphia 2012 - Child Abuse Trials

St. Boniface, Norris Square, Philadelphia

To the People of God in Philadelphia,

7. "And to the angel of the People of God in Philadelphia write:

'These things says He who is holy, He who is true, "He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens":

8 "I know your works.

See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.

9 Indeed I will make those of the skyscraper of Shame (222), who say they are True and are not, but lie -

indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.

10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.

11 Behold, I am coming quickly!

Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.

12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more.

And I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.

13 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to all the Peoples of God."

The Benedict XVI defense in the Monsignor Lynn Philly kiddie rape trail – I was only following orders

Child Rape Experts and Crime Bosses "Big Tony" Bevilacqua of Philly  and "Big Bernie" Law of Boston

The long, typed letter fantasizes about a seventh-grader's body, and asks if the boy wants to try various sex acts. 
"You are soooo cute. I have been thinking about you for a long time. ... You're the cutest in our grade," the author wrote in a rare G-rated line. 
But the anonymous author was not a classmate at the boy's Catholic school in northeast Philadelphia. It was a parish priest. One with a cache of gay pornography and sadomasochistic videos in the rectory. 
Files show the letter-writing priest was sent to a church-run treatment center for priests, where staff concluded he did not have "a pathological interest in children or adults." Doctors racked the letter up to a single fantasy. And they believed him when he said he hadn't sent it — or acted out with children. 
"Cardinal Bevilacqua is granting him a health leave, and that should be the announcement to the (St. Anselm's) parish," reads a December 1995 memo, found in secret personnel files at the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. 
The memo, along with the priest's letter, aired in court this week in a landmark criminal trial in Philadelphia. Accused is Monsignor William Lynn, the first U.S. church official charged with child endangerment for allegedly leaving predator-priests in ministry, and conspiring with others to cover up the festering problem. 
Prosecutors call the archdiocese of 1.5 million Catholics "an unindicted co-conspirator."

Like all mindless soldiers in a larger organization, Benedict XVI used to shoot Allied pilots out of the sky for his Leader; Monsignor Lynn was only following orders from religious crime boss Cardinal “Big Tony” Bevilacqua when he shuffled kiddie rapists/priests around the cesspool archdiocese of Philadelphia.

“I was only following orders.” Yeah Right.

Tell that to your victims Joe and Bill.

Bishop Chaput and his War on Obama Book, the Way, the Darkness and the Ignorance of a future Fascist America

Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia

As you well know I am no fan of Charles Chaput, the present temporary Archbishop of Philadelphia, before his papal reappointment to the Vatican.  In the interim, he is “trying” to clean up the Cesspool at “222” North 17th Street in Philly, Regional Corporate Headquarters of the global Vatican (for profit) Inc.

I have called him Chief Outtatown in the past referencing hearsay from back there, because of his temporary assignment to Philly to paint a rosy picture and literally cheer on and applaud company perverts like Monsignor Lynn and the kiddie rape ring trial currently going on in the city of brotherly love. His sitting in the chair at Sts. Peter and Paul cathedral reminds me of the phrase from the bible – the Abomination that – is going to cause desolation in Philly IMHO.

That being said, from his past actions in Australia, Denver, Madrid and knife in the back to a dead JFK, I can only imagine that his new e-book essay attack, War on Obama, is "legitimate" considering the source, the pope's official hatchet/hit man. 

Here is an excellent review of Chaput’s current  “religious liberty” book/essay, conservative propaganda in the name of his Christ, not mine.  

Archbishop Chaput Will Have None of Your Lukewarm Catholicism

A good read.

That’s some tough talk, and in the course of Chaput’s compact essay, he smartly and eloquently states his case for what he sees as a growing sense of religious intolerance in this country, stoked by an ill-informed and biased media and a populace that’s turned its collective back on faith. He writes of “the inhuman parody we call ‘modern American culture’” and “sexual minorities [who] now routinely use the state’s power and friendly mass media to break down traditional definitions of marriage and family.” Chaput wistfully remembers the good old days, “when the word gay had more connection to joy than sexual identity.”

New York State Textbooks Censored in favor of Religious Superstitions and continued Dumbing Down of America

Any company submitting proposals to the state must exclude references to such topics as dinosaurs, birthdays, Halloween, slavery, swimming pools (and other allusions to wealth, such as mp3 players, video games, etc.), certain forms of dance (ballet is okay), among others. And there’s junk food of course, which unfortunately wasn’t fully defined. This means that there is great editorial debate going on in conference rooms around the country as publishers try to discern exactlywhat constitutes junk food (I know; I’ve sat in on such meetings. Pretzels? Frozen yogurt? No one is ever quite sure. Cookies? Pies? Those always yield a consensus)…

The reason for the list coming out of New York, according to one education official, is that these and other listed references have the potential to “evoke unpleasant emotions in students.” Unpleasant emotions in students? When was the last time a written reference to a dinosaur or a cupcake or an ipod left your child emotionally harmed? I suspect it’s more likely that the unpleasant emotions aren’t so muchevoked in as projected upon students by much older voices---parents and others with personal agendas, as well as those with legal credentials who are always on the hunt for anything that has the eensiest potential to offend the smallest minority in the most insignificant way. The thing is, even if these things aren’t mentioned in a state test, students are still exposed to many of these topics on a daily basis beyond the classroom. So why are they affected so dramatically only when exposed to such topics on tests but not in everyday life?

Most of the items on New York's list aren’t new to publishers. When it comes to junk food, we haven’t been able to use the words cake, cookie, cupcake, and ice cream for as long as I can remember. The only reason pizza is allowed—veggie with a wheat crust, please…

Certainly some topics make sense to avoid—terrorism, divorce, disease. No one wants to upset the poor kids any more than they already are on testing day. But even a Jehovah’s Witness has to live in a world where most of the population celebrates birthdays, and an evangelical has to live in a world of museums that generally include things like, say, dinosaur fossils. Halloween? Is there a child alive who doesn’t either know about the existence of this holiday or participate in the celebration of it? Are there scores of students standing up en masse declaring, “I’m offended by this reference to paganism.” Or course not. Most don’t even know what paganism is. But those with agendas do. The more we try to sanitize education to appease a one-size-fits-all mentality, the more we’re going to create a one-size-fits-none curriculum which does nothing to advance what should be the goal—academics, not politics….

War on Humanity, War on Modernity Continues

The War on Women or the War on Gays via marriage equality boils down to a War on Intelligence and or a War on Modernity.  Parts of the Christian church, the RCs, have been at war with the secular western world for the past two hundred years since Napoleon.

There are blind spot words and concepts floating around the ether via the MSM and they match the blind spot ignorance of Mormons like Romney, Fundamentalists like Palin or Crusaders like Santorum.

But the biggest blind spot words and concepts these days have to do with sexuality.

The War on most everything in the media these days boils down to the RC church’s ignorance of definitions of sex that do not fit modern standards or modern definitions.

Child abuse, clergy abuse has to do with the inability of a global institution’s inability to understand sex.

To this institution, everything within a heterosexual Catholic marriage and dealing with procreative sex is the only definition of sex.

That if the church wants, as in recent months and years, wants to blame homosexuality for clergy abuse, it is only mouthing a modern word invented by the Victorians that catalogued a sexual venue, but did little to further explain it.

That everything sexual outside of Catholic marriage is not defined in pre-nineteenth century terms.  Sexuality is a sin outside of marriage.  Everything else, fornication, sodomy, masturbation, pedophilia is merely some sin that must be confessed and absolved – it does not have to be understood.

This march toward the past in terms of a NOM world that can only understand sexuality in marriage and no place else is a shill for organized religion, that still in the twentieth-first century, remains clueless on all things sexual.

They are supposed to start a big clergy abuse trial in Philly today.  This whole mess is a very tragic comedy of sexual errors by a clerical bureaucracy that did not, has not tried to understand sexuality since the Great Schism in 1054 C.E..

That when Rome created celibacy, it was part of a total ban on sexuality.  That the majority homosexual clergy and their excesses were supposed to become chaste and stop the sex thing, like human nature as part of natural law, like gravity, could stop on a papal decree.  That misery from the pope on down and abstaining from gay sex demanded that the heterosexual clergy should not enjoy sex either, thus the band-aid blind spot word/concept associated with sex and the word celibate.

Little wonder world war or the Crusades started as a diversion soon after as a result of this grand sexual dysfunction as a result of this new f---ed up official front office mission statement of reality.

That whenever any Christian official or their ex-Pennsylvania Senator type stooges these days are using any term sexual, they are in the past, the pre-modern world in thought and understanding of the subject.

They are mimicking the language.  They are clueless. Beware.

That the War on Women and the War on Marriage Equality is an attempt to dumb the modern world back to the stopped Church calendar of 1799 C.E..

Who will win next year’s national election? Adams, Hamilton, Jefferson or Burr?

Be careful with whom you speak or have conversation with or listen to in the media.  Anybody can use words, have them written for them, and mimic intelligence.

The truth is in the heart and few of the soldiers in this current War on Humanity, War on Modernity have minds or hearts.

Pope Accepts Protection from Bloodthirsty Drug Gangs in Mexico

Pope Benedict's Temporary Swiss/Mexican Guard

Perhaps a temporary ceasefire in the bloody civil drug wars in Mexico is a good thing as Benedict XVI is in town to sell the product.

The pope is actually in Mexico on church business and no truth to the rumors that crates of cash are going back with him on the papal plane to the Vatican bank (?).

No big deal accepting protection from followers of the Santa Muerte Mexican Catholic Crime Cult?

Looks like Pope Benedict won't need his bulletproof popemobile for his trip to Guanajuato this weekend. The Knights Templar, one of Mexico's most vicious drug cartels, has bizarrely anointed itself as the makeshift security force for His Holiness, proclaiming a ceasefire during his three-day visit and hanging up banners around the state warning rival gangs not to get trigger-happy. The group purged its own bloodthirsty urges ahead of time,dumping 10 severed heads outside a Teloloapan slaughterhouse this week. Don't think that gang members might have a spiritual reawakening after the pope's visit -- the murder moratorium is just for the weekend, so they can begin their carnage-heavy workweek again on Monday.

Orange – the Color of Protest? - 14 Wage Slaves in Florida Fired for Wearing Orange Shirts on Pay Day Friday

First it was eyeglasses, then watches that identified intelligence to Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge communists to set up the killings fields of millions of innocent people in Cambodia.

Now, some lunatic law firm in Florida, Elizabeth Wellborn, that processes foreclosures for Fannie Mae (the government dime?) got all paranoid and Tea Party like when its clerical workers wore orange on pay days in order to be identifiable as a group when hanging out after work.

Florida is a fire at will state, no notice or time required to terminate.

The GOP and its anti-human, anti-humane campaign of terror against the little people of this world continues.

What the hell kind of dope are they smoking in the Lawyers Lounge at Elizabeth Wellborn in Florida?

Big Brother is watching and he don’t like Orange.


Vatican Money Too Dirty Even for J P Morgan – Pot Calling the Kettle Black

Can the Catholic Church’s Vatican banking system be laundering money for drugs, arms and human trafficking?  Good question.  In all likelihood, this Vatican account closed by J P Morgan had to be closed because of Vatican secrecy and refusal to comply with the simplest of banking rules worldwide.

JP Morgan closes Vatican bank's account

Thirty years after it was entangled in a scandal involving the mafia, money laundering and the mysterious death of the man nicknamed "God's banker," the Vatican bank faces fresh controversy. 
The bank - formally known as the Institute for Works of Religion or IOR - has suffered the ignominy of having one of its accounts closed by JP Morgan after stone-walling requests for information.
The sanction came less than two weeks after the U.S. State Department listed the Vatican as being potentially vulnerable to money laundering.
A Milan affiliate of JP Morgan said it will shut the account by the end of the month after revealing Vatican bankers had been "unable to respond" to requests for details about payments into the account. 
A spokesman for JP Morgan in Milan declined to comment, citing client confidentiality.
The Milan branch had been seeking information since 2010, when the Vatican bank was accused by authorities in Rome of contravening money-laundering regulations. 
In an unusual move, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, president of the Vatican bank, was placed under investigation and a judge in Rome ordered a freeze on $30 million held in one of the bank's accounts. 
The scandal prompted the Vatican bank to initiate anti-money-laundering legislation, which is currently being debated by the Roman Catholic Church hierarchy.

My thanks to Betty Clermont’s recent Daily Kos article that shed some well defined light on the above tidbit presented in the global MSM.

The Mightiest SuperPAC of All

Integration in an international monetary network Each bishop, archbishop and cardinal is hand-picked by the pope and each “official” Catholic organization is tied to the pope through its approving hierarch. Also obedient to the pope are lay associations like the Knights of Columbus which, as of 2007, claimed assets of over $14 billion. Supreme Knight, Carl Anderson, former member of the Reagan administration, sits on the Board of Superintendence of the Vatican Bank or IOR (Istituto per le Opere di Religione). They are all part of a world-wide financial network run from the Vatican. 
A popular misconception is that the Vatican itself is sitting on top of some huge fortune. Relative to other hordes, that’s not the case. The IOR itself is reported to hold only $5 billion on deposit.  The art, antiquities and architectural treasures actually cost the Vatican a great deal of money to preserve. The real value comes from having been an unregulated “offshore” tax haven for Italian account holders and a clearing house for the international financial community to move clandestine funds around the globe.
It was reported this week that the Vatican was included in a list of 67 Countries which could be potentially susceptible to money-laundering according to the U.S. Department of State’s annual drug-trafficking report. “To be considered a jurisdiction of concern merely indicates that there is a vulnerability to a financial system by money launderers. With the large volumes of international currency that goes through the Holy See, it is a system that makes it vulnerable as a potential money-laundering center” said Susan Pittman of the State Department's Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement.  
The London Telegraph had reported that the Vatican Bank was the eighth most popular destination for laundered money, ahead of the Bahamas, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. The reason for this is that you cannot trace any movement of cash within the bank. “This corruption is continuing on a regular basis in the Vatican,” claimed attorney Jonathan Levy. “There’s no reason for a religion to have a bank that does worldwide commercial activities, dealing in gold, dealing in insurance, dealing in property and then hiding behind the Roman Catholic Church.”

U.S. Army Massacre Specialist Robert Bales Also a Ponzi Stock Broker – Unbelievable!

Can I interest you guys in some Enron stock?

He'll get off scot free.  He worked for Wall Street.

This story gets stranger by the hour.  Kind of like the whole Bush/Obama Foreign Policy.

The U.S. soldier accused of gunning down 16 Afghan civilians, including nine children, was more than $1million in debt and had defrauded a pensioner out of his life savings, it has been claimed.

Federal documents show how Staff Sgt Robert Bales scammed pensioner Gary Liebschner of Carroll, Ohio, of more than $800,000 in a stock scam just before he enlisted in the army.

Financial regulators found in 2003 how Bales 'engaged in fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, churning, unauthorised trading and unsuitable investments'. Liebschner claims the then stock broker, working for Ohio brokerage firm MPI, took his life savings of $852,000 in AT&T stock and reduced its value to nothing through a series of trades.

Alongside his associates, Bales was ordered to pay his victim $1,274,000 in compensatory and punitive damages. But he has not yet done so.

Liebschner told ABC News he recognised 'smooth talker' Bales after news reports about the massacre.

He said: 'He robbed me of my life savings. We didn't know where he was. We heard the Bahamas, and all kinds of places.' When asked if he was a conman, he said: 'You've hit the nail on the head.'
