            Prayers for a speedy recovery and strength of heart to the Philippines.

   As one who has been called the white Filipino in the Poker Tournaments at Crystal Park in Compton, California. Where, one of the greatest times I ever enjoyed of that sporting; was the Filipino Championship series and our entire 1st table "inner group" of Gus, Raj, Doug and others totally had a blast as we all made it to the final table together.

   To my good friends of the Philippines, their friends and family back home, during these days of great human despair, I wish you & your nation G-d's speed in recovering; and want you all to know that my fellow Kossacks are doing all they can for our kindred parties suffering much in the Philippines.

    Our hopes, prayers, recover quick wishes and donations are already be on the wayr now - and will be for a very long time to come. America helps as many as we can in need including our long term neighbors and friends!

    Please take the time to look at fellow Kossack "Jen Sorenson" Comic about the germane issue of "Legal Horseplay". Whereas, attorneys at law attempt to treat the readers as if we are all stupid. This is VERY important to the case at hand.

    Anyone can sue anybody for Racketeering - you MUST have FACTS or the court can sanction you (fine you everything you own) per Federal Rule of Civil Procedures 11.

    Yours truly welcomes ANY day in court. Because - Thus Far - Romney and his GANG have been able to prevent that from happening. What they are all hiding is the fact that MNAT, Barry Gold and Paul Traub - ALL WORK FOR Bain Capital (when Romney was  CEO in 2001). This is nothing more than LEGAL HORSE PLAY!

             With that being said - life goes on and our eToys/Romney battles continue.

                                        UPDATE on HAAS v ROMNEY -

                              A Civil Racketeering litigation is below the fold;

Romney the Racketeer - the background story


     Unfortunately, there are many a stalwart among U.S. who bark & "Ba[i]n"ter about my efforts in purported specialness. Whereas, the naysayers & such CLAIM that yours truly (who "choses" to be addressed as Laser Haas) is going against the likes of Willard Mitt Romney (who chooses to be called "Mitt"), along Bain Capital, Goldman Sachs, Paul Traub (pictured to the far right with glasses, alongside one of his other fraudster partners Marc Dreier) and their GANG - simply as an endeavor of yours truly to be something different. -

 And that is simply udder Bull [c]hit!

     As the evidence clearly details (July 25, 2005 Wall Street Journal article - here); Romney's attorney (Paul Traub) & I were fighting LONG before Mitt's POTUS run! Why Traub has been able to get away with it all is due to the fact that he is a partner of Romney's. Along with the fact that the Traub Bonacquist & Fox ("TBF") law firm also have a partner working very high up in the federal government. (See "Bonacquist" issue below).
 The MNAT law firm and Traub's TBF firm - are Attorneys at Law who took millions of dollars to represent eToys and its Creditors; and Sold OUT their clients (betrayed their client's trust - to make a POTUS hopeful happy - in an apparent hope to be rewarded)

And that Ain't Right - It is also Against the Law!

    While Mitt Romney was still CEO of Bain Capital they perpetrated massive federal frauds - under the Kay Bee brand name - via profuse acts of PERJURY; these crimes of Bribery, Grand Larceny, Collusion, MisPrision of a Felony, Federal Corruption, Scheme to Fix Fees, Perjury, Bankruptcy Fraud, Securities Fraud, Intimidation of Victim/Witness, Mail & Wire Fraud, Retaliation Against Whistleblower and many other State and Federal Felony crimes transpired.

    Whereas, MNAT and Paul Traub, along with Barry Gold & Michael Glazer were doing these crimes to benefit Goldman Sachs IPO fraud (see the March 2013 New York Times OpEd article "Rigging the I.P.O. Game") so in an effort to destroy the eToys public company. While also getting the 2-fer of Bain Capital being able to steal (perpetrate Grand Larceny) against the bankruptcy estate of eToys assets. For the sake of Romney/ Bain/ Kay Bee/ Michael Glazer (CEO of Kay Bee) to own eToys for as little as possible.

     The Morris Nichols Arsht & Tunnell ("MNAT") law firm lied under oath to become the eToys "Debtor's" counsel. And Paul Traub's TBF law firm lied under oath to become the Creditors attorney of the eToys bankruptcy estate. This is NOT IN DISPUTE - as the firms of MNAT and TBF perpetrated (and have CONFESSED such) that they hid their connections to Goldman Sachs and Barry Gold (who worked with Michael Glazer and Mitt Romney at Stage Stores). These schemes were to help many parties and their nationally important/significant parties like Mitt Romney. So that MNAT/ Traub's TBF could then SELL OUT their court approved clients (eToys & its creditors) - for the sake of their UNdisclosed clients (Goldman Sachs & Bain Capital).

This is Bankruptcy Fraud - and that is a RACKETEERING CRIME (here).

Racketeering activity”  -includes;

"for purposes of the RICO Act means  any act “chargeable” under several generically described state criminal laws, any act “indictable” under numerous specific federal criminal provisions, including mail and wire fraud, and any “offense” involving bankruptcy or securities fraud or drug-related activities that is “punishable” under federal law.  The RICO Act prohibits the use of income derived from a “pattern of racketeering activity” to acquire an interest in or establish an enterprise engaged in or affecting interstate commerce; the acquisition or maintenance of any interest in an enterprise “through” a pattern of racketeering activity; conducting or participating in the conduct of an enterprise through a pattern of racketeering activity; and conspiring to violate any of these provisions"
emphasis added!

Paul Traub's "planting" his partner Barry Gold inside eToys is CONFESSED;
(see July 2005 Wall Street Journal story "eToys investors claim conflicts at law firm")

PAUL TRAUB history of partnerships with Fraudster/Ponzi Schemers!

    What is amazing about this, is many of Paul Traub's partners keep going to jail; but he remains totally 'Scot Free'.- even though Traub was NAMED as the "Controller" of Tom Petters Ponzi in June 2012! (See Star Tribune article - here & article - here).

   Paul Traub's other partners noteworthy include fraudster/attorney Marc Dreier (doing 20 years - here), Ponzi schemer Tom Petters (doing 50 years in prison - here) and OKUN 1031 Tax Group (OKUN railroaded to 100 years in prison - here).

Harold Bonacquist is Traub's partner - who works for U.S. State Department

  Also (purportedly) Harold Bonacquist's and Paul Traub's files are marked "HANDS OFF" at the Department of Justice. (Harold Bonacquist is the Consulate General Counsel in Istanbul - here).

No one cared about Laser/eToys case - until Romney ran for POTUS!


Yes, I'm trying to put the RACKETEER Mitt Romney behind bars!

     What is noteworthy, is the fact that no one really gave a damn about all of this UNTIL some smaller media outlets began to tell the stories ( Rmuse stories - here- hereand here); because it IS tied to Mitt Romney - WHEN he WAS the CEO of Bain Capital - and Romney just so happens to be the one who ran for President of the United States.

    Whereas, Romney & his RICO (Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organization) band of lawbreakers ("GANG" of attorneys at law who SELL OUT their court approved clients) - have Broken the Law - Over and OVER - Again and AGAIN - but they are NEVER punished!

Is it okay with you that Romney & Bain Capital are Above the Law?

Organized Crimes of Romney's RICO Gang;

    It shouldn't be okay that anyone can break the law openly without fear of being held culpable and accountable. It is most certainly is NOT okay with me!

    What happened was - when I refused their bribery attempts and reported such to the Department of Justice; the federal agents and agencies turned upon me and helped the organized crimes to succeed. They even arranged for one of Romney's Bain Capital attorneys to become the Delaware United States Attorney on August 2, 2001.

See Colm Connolly's Resume (here) and GW Bush's Nomination (here).

As if being a victim of organized crime makes one special (- ?REALLY)?

    Puhhhllleeeaaassseeee - This case is about very basic/simple premises of Law, good faith ethics and oaths sworn - Under Penalty of Perjury.

      Romney lied to the entire nation about his tenure at Bain Capital as CEO. Even though yours truly pointed this out 1st and many a detractor here (including legal eagles) said it was B.S. - No one capitulated to "that" FACT when President Obama published the issue as valid upon his campaign supportive website.

     Many have forgotten that Willard Mitt "Romney" (who chooses to call himself Mitt, where I choose - [am nicknamed] - Laser) is actually a Law school grad. Though one can hardly trust Wikipedia that much (anymore); because it tends to have "planted" facts (like the one that Romney was "non-ideological"  and {purportedly} that Mitt did NOT involve himself in the politics of the day. But Wikipedia usually has great supportive links - that will give "independent" corroboration of certain facts. Like these remarks of Wikipedia on "Mitt" Romney - (here) and thusly;

Mitt Romney wanted to pursue a business career, but his father advised him that a law degree would be valuable to his career even if he did not become a lawyer.[56][57] Thus, he enrolled in the recently created joint Juris Doctor/Master of Business Administration four-year program coordinated between Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School.[58] He readily adapted to the business school's pragmatic, data-driven case study method of teaching.[57] Living in a Belmont, Massachusetts house with Ann and their two children, his social experience differed from most of his classmates'.[47][57] He was nonideological and did not involve himself in the political issues of the day.[47][57] He graduated in 1975 cum laude from the law school, in the top third of that class, and was named a Baker Scholar for graduating in the top five percent of his business school class.[54][58]
1 - Romney lied to the entire country about his tenure as Bain's CEO (here) (here) & (here).

2 - Bain Capital & Romney owned "The Learning Company" that lost Mattel $3 Billion.

3 - Romney owned Stage Stores (where Glazer, Barry Gold & Traub's TBF worked)

4 - MNAT merged 'The Learning Company with Mattel

5 - Glazer is CEO of Kay Bee (paid himself $18 Million and Bain $83 Million)

6 - Matt Taibbi took yours truly information for his "Greed and Debt" story.

7 - What Mr. Taibbi missed is that Glazer also works for Stage Stores

8 - Matt also missed the fact that MNAT represents Bain in the $83 million

9 - The "Greed and Debt" story also missed Paul Traub asking to prosecute Glazer/Bain

10- Colm Connolly is Romney's "retroactive" SECRET (became U.S. Attorney).


     This case boils down to a simple issue. Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital have partnered up to destroy the public company of eToys and also steal the federal bankruptcy estate assets of eToys.

MNAT works for Bain Capital and Romney (The Learning Company & Kay Bee Toys)

Traub and Barry Gold worked for Romney/ Glazer in Stage Stores case (DURING the same time as the eToys case was going on).

Goldman Sachs did IPO fraud against eToys (see NY Times "Rigging IPO Game")

Barry Gold was sneaked into eToys and this is confessed (see WSJ July 2005).

Paul Traub lied about all this and continues to do so;
because telling the truth now means Romney Goes TO JAIL!

Mitt Romney claims to be "retroactively" retired from Bain Capital as CEO - from August 2001; back to February 1999.

Colm Connolly was a MNAT partner from 1999 to August 2001.

On August 2, 2001 - Colm Connolly became the Delaware U.S. Attorney;
who then buried the case from investigation/prosecution for 7 years.

That is Bankruptcy Fraud and Federal Corruption.

     As is remarked by fellow Kossack Jen Sorenson - there are issues of "Legal HorsePlay".

     Or, as a Federal Judge stipulated in a recent 2013 decision of punishing a major law firm for attempting to betray a client that "a clearer case of Conflicts of Interest can not be imagined"!

                                  "This is not Ethics Rocket Science"!

      Any attorney at law


       who comes here and argues these crimes are okay - can NOT be a Progressive!

      Any attorney at law


         who argue that the stunts these crooks pulled is no big deal

      Are (in essence) arguing that it is okay for attorneys to LIE under oath and betray their clients trust; should NOT be an attorney you would ever desire to hire!


Is it okay for Romney to get away with Fraud?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
