Lets start with Nakoula Basseley Nakoula who has been blamed with making the movies that caused the protest at embassies around the world. link Now he was convicted of fraud and his sentencing for that crime was leaked. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula sentencing pdf that was leaked showing his sentence for fraud has a very interesting tidbit in it. Namely the attorney James Henderson. James Henderson was accused of having ties to organized crime and bribes from Arabic men. And this was a allegation made by the man who first reported that planes were going to be hijacked and flown into the world trade center.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula sentencing pdf

FBI file on reports of plane attacks in US before 9/11.

The Gerard Van Hoorelbeke  Louis Freeh Scarpa File

US appeals court case where Hoorelbeke (Jerry Vann) made accusations against James Henderson about criminal ties to organized crime and Arabic men who wanted to pay bribes. James Henderson was in charge of the organized crime task force.

Now lets take a look at what the attorney was accused of.

After receiving these allegations, Representative Charles Rangel, Chair of the Committee, and Representative Benjamin Gilman, asked Sterling Johnson, Jr. to conduct a preliminary investigation into Vann's charges and to recommend whether further investigation would be worthwhile.2 5 After interviewing Jerry Vann and others Vann named to corroborate his charges, Johnson summarized his findings for the Committee. He began by describing Vann's criminal background, history of cooperation with prosecutors, and his subsequent feeling of betrayal by them. Johnson then recited Vann's main allegations: 6 (1) Crane supervised the Strike Force for thirteen years. 7 (2) Crane is currently the attorney for the Aladdin Hotel Casino in Las Vegas and owns "points" in the Barbary Coast Casino. 8 (3) Vann stated that "Crane's clients are organized crime figures. When Crane's clients have problems with the Los Angeles Strike Force, they are rarely touched because the current Chief (Jim Henderson) is a friend and former subordinate of [Crane's]." 9 (4) Vann described Henderson as a personal friend of Crane. Vann characterized Henderson as "unusually soft on organized crime and corruption." Vann cited alleged corruption by Governor Jerry Brown and George Deukmejian as examples of Henderson's softness on corruption. 10 (5) Vann stated that the Strike Force had jurisdiction over Hawaii. 11 (6) Vann submitted documents to Johnson intended to corroborate his story. 12 Johnson also talked with Chris Harris, an Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms Agent, and with George Cooper, a member of the Los Angeles Arson Task Force. Harris disagreed with Vann's claim that the Strike Force was corrupt, although he did label "unusual" the Strike Force's delays in prosecutions.

Aladdin Hotel Casino in Las Vegas is the one that really stands out. Maybe you seen a movie called Casino. It was based on this Casino and all the mobsters that went to prison. linkThey had a company named Recrion Corporation that was at the ownership of this hotel and others. Argent Corporation was parent of Recrion Corporation and was owned by Allen R. Glick who was given immunity for his crimes while 15 other mobsters went to prison. link

Barbary Coast Casino also stands out and goes directly to Mitt Romney. Barbary Coast Casino is owned by Michael Gaughan. link And he was the friend of Mitt Romney who owned a Nascar Team South Point Racing. link His son Michael Gaughan Jr. was running JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa. Seems now he is getting his own Casino. link

Lawyers and Politicians, similar turds inhabiting the same bowl as it where.

you go far enough in professional circles I am sure you'd be surprised the people that are connected at some level.

Isn't Romney and Obama related is some obscure way?
The twisted road of your reasoning from the OP is laughable. Using your flawed logic, since you are trying to point blame to Romney, I guess it flows to Obama also right?

A friend of a friend of a friend is usually not a friend of mine.

Romney gets no trash talk from me on this one.

It doesn't seem like a clear cut connection, but it does show how the 'elite' weasel around with each other and how things tend to work out for the collective network's benefit, almost like a conspiracy! Who would have thought!

P.s. Good researching.

how did you come up with this association?

Also, you might try to summarize the relations in a more concise manner, the
impact gets lost in translation.

Barack Obama

I can add some more degrees if you wish. When Mitt Romney's dad ran for President the FBI files on him listed his brother with the last name dropped as a terrorist.

Here is the quote from that thread with the information.

I'll start with some thing I seen on Cryptome about Romney's fathers FBI files.

They seemed a bit lost saying George MNU Scott was Romney's dad. The birth date matches Romney's brother George Scott Romney. But I find it interesting that he showed up in more then the little pieces they show on there website in the pictures. When you look at the file George MNU Scott shows up on a TERRORIST INFORMATION SYSTEM (TIS) list. MNU I take it is the MidAmerica Nazarene University (MNU) At least that is all I can find on MNU. Is George Scott a outcast from the family because he changed religions so they dropped his last name of Romney?

On this file page 265 he shows up on the terrorist list as George W Scott.
Pages 270 and 271 he shows up under George MNU Scott.

Is this just bad FBI files. Did George Scott Romney get on a terrorist list so they dropped the last name Romney off to hide it? Is it a code name for George Wilcken Romney?

And also don't forget the quite partner of all of the Casinos in Las Vegas has been the LDS church itself which owned all the land in Las Vegas before the strip ever existed. They have always played the quite partner picking people to play the front man for there church. After most of the mobsters were chased off the church turned to Howard Hughes to clean up the place the Mormon church was running things.

A brief statement of the connections.

Man who planned terrorist attack in 93 was in prison and turned informant. He stated that James Henderson was tied to mobsters who were bribing him and others with money including Alvin Melnik who ran secret banks to laundry money. James Henderson was tied to two casinos in Las Vegas by his statements. Both of those Casinos are tied to Romney several ways. LDS church, His personal statement about the friend who owns Nascar team and even the son who works for Marriott that Romney owns. Michael Gaughan connected to Romney by his own words saying he was a friend. Son works for Romney/Marriott. And a terrorist who predicted 9/11 ties the Lawyer to Romney's group of friends? And they all have a long history together.

And this attorney is the defender of the guy who made the movie that was supposed to turn the campaign around for Romney with attacks on US Embassies. And Romney seemed to jump the gun on his attack on Obama was because he thought he knew what was going on but it grew into something bigger than planned.

MNU in that context is not a reference to some obscure Nazarene university. It stands for Middle Name Unknown, as in George (middle name unknown) Scott.

This connection is a huge stretch....I bet Kevin Bacon is just as closely linked to Romney.

For the record, in the OP, it says the sentencing was leaked (twice); however, court records are open and available to the public....hardly a "leak".

Nonetheless, Romney is a piece of trash and anything that demeans him is okay with me; so long as it is factually accurate.

I know that now . Somebody pointed it out in the other thread. But the First and middle name and birth date and location all match Romney's brother and it showed up on the search on Romney's dad when the FBI was doing back ground check on him. To many things point to it being Romney's brother.

The reason I call it a leak is because it came out before the media even wanted to admit what the guys name was. So in my terms that is a leak. Some one seen it and wanted people to know before they were allowed to even say his name.

Uh, Oh, "Person A is tied to Entity B who is connected to Person C who defended Person D" ??? Surely Person A has great control over Person D. I obviously believe there is some merit to conspiracy theories, but just because you can cram 4 people's name into a sentence doesn't mean they're acting in concert.

It is funny how Romney always seems to pull that off. How about the insider trading fraud he escaped just recently.

That case was where Romney tried to buy a company with Bain Capital and China. Congress stopped it because it was a company ted to national security. Romney told his Accountant about the decision before it was made public. The accountants traded on inside information from Romney but only they went to jail.

This thread has more information on the movie that caused the protest. And the circle of people behind it. The same circle has been behind many other problems in the past.

Boy, those are some hard-to-connect dots, friend.

Do you really want to start a war of who knows who?

In sharp contrast to his tough talk about ethics reform in government, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., approached a well-known Illinois political fixer under active federal investigation, Antoin "Tony" Rezko, for "advice" as he sought to find a way to buy a house shortly after being elected to the United States Senate.

The parcel included an adjacent lot which Obama told the Chicago Tribune he could not afford because "it was already a stretch to buy the house."

On the same day Obama closed on his house, Rezko's wife bought the adjacent empty lot, meeting the condition of the seller who wanted to sell both properties at the same time.

Rezko had been widely reported to be under investigation by the U.S. attorney and the FBI at the time Obama contacted him and has since been indicted on corruption charges by a federal grand jury in a case that prosecutors say involves bribes, kickbacks and "efforts to illegally obtain millions of dollars."

Or how about this connection with people who tried to bring down the American government:

Why don’t you care about Obama’s ties to a known con-man and a known terrorist? And why would Romney (or anybody in the US) want to spread that Muslim video and ignite a firestorm if their intentions are to go to war? It makes no sense to poke the hornets nest before you enter….

I'm with you, jam. This desperate attempt to connect one candidate or the other through a maze of mysterious "connections" does not interest me.

I will judge a man on the content of his character. In this case, I have enough evidence to have already made my judgment.

posted on Sep, 15 2012 @ 05:18 PM
This is like when people try to connect Obama to somebody that somebody knows that met somebody that went to a party at somebodys house who might be a communist. Same thing. I think we can pretty much connect anybody to anything. If you want to blame Romney for be a dull as dirt candidate have at it but, why try to make him to be something he is not.

posted on Sep, 15 2012 @ 05:53 PM
I agree with many of the posters that this is quite the stretch, but I respect your research and believe it does illustrate the company Romney keeps. He is one shady dude. I believe his quick reaction in criticizing Obama definitely shows he was expecting something.

It always makes me laugh how people on the right and the supporters of Romney's only defense is to say, "Oh yeah, well look what Obama did!"

Woohoo! We have 2 criminals running for office of the President of the United States! Surely, we are not screwed.

They cover their butts enough so that the connection will never quite be there, but keep digging. And those of you that support Romney, or Obama, keep believing in your man! We aren't missing your critical thinking skills, anyhow.
