  •  Mitt Romney is not a Christian. No way. (3+ / 0-)

    Not by thought, word, or deed apart from well documented efforts with charity.

    Corporate press are willing to cover up lies, false documents, and much worse. The Dan Rather scandal frightened them, both the on-air talent and management:

    -- We know for sure that Romney killed a woman on the 16th of June in 1968 with simple bad driving. Her name was Leola Anderson, 57, a mother of four. Most likely with his vision obstructed, Romney drove out of his lane at an intersection and slammed head-on into a Mercedes 180.

    -- He has blamed that accident repeatedly on a a fictitious person, a "drunk priest named Albert Marie, age 46." That lie is supported with a claim to have verified that this "Albert Marie" was assigned to the parish at Serieul, north of Bordeaux, plus having paid an imaginary "settlement" to another Mormon missionary, David Wood.

    -- In fact, the other driver was Bishop Jean Vilnet. The collision point was in the southbound Left Turn lane of N524 across from the Beaulac post office. No one was drinking. No one was speeding. Romney had been driving north, when he misread an intersection. He was the driver at fault. Here is the bishop in hospital at Bazas France, the morning after that 1968 accident:

    -- Equally seriously, Romney had a bogus news article created in 2006/2007, a forgery, allegedly from the French publication Sud Ouest in Bordeaux. Then he had an English language version spread around to mislead the world press.

    -- This forgery, predated to 1968, includes an impossible account of the collision. It misstated the site and also purports to back up the "drunk priest" slanders.

    -- His authorized biography, "The Real Romney" on pages 80-83 contains a claim that Romney was in a "three day coma" in the Bazas hospital at the time this story of the "drunk priest" was first circulated.

    How many Catholic bishops are observed drunk while driving two women home from Sunday Mass ??? Blood of the Lamb by the glass?

    This slander has been repeated over and over for Mormon missionaries serving in France. It is a prime anti-Catholic motivational tool. Mitt Romney is portrayed as a hero for surviving the crash.

    -- Mrs. Anderson's next-day obituary from June 17, 1968, in the evening edition of the Ogden Standard-Examiner contains eye witness reporting that Willard (Mitt) Romney "suffered minor head injuries and torn ligaments to one elbow. He was expected to leave hospital in about two days" as reported by Andre Salarnier, reporter/photographer.

    -- Romney's campaign web site contradicts all of the prior tales. This account would have Romney suffering "a concussion." Details and the "drunk priest" slander are omitted. Romney, of course, is the hero.

    Photographic evidence, including a readable image of the Anderson obituary, are up here at Daily Kos. Here are the main diaries:

    -- Mitt Romney's Driving Killed Leola Anderson. His Cover-Up Tale is Proved Dishonest

    -- The obituary:

    Willard (Mitt) Romney, 21, son of Governor George Romney of Michigan, who is serving as a missionary in France and who was driving the car, suffered minor head injuries and torn ligaments to one elbow. He was expected to leave hospital in about two days.

    -- Text as reported by Andre Salarnier, reporter/photographer

    -- The false claim of a "three day coma":

    "The Real Romney": Authorized Biography Echoes Fabulist Inventions

    That includes a nice photo of Romney in a standard ward bed, the Monday morning after, talking to Salarnier while getting photographed.

    For pro-democracy people, he makes Nixon and his felonious Dirty Tricksters look like children doing Halloween pranks. No wonder the tax returns are hidden.

      Since he was at prep school, Mitt Romney has said that he is the one to fulfill prophesy and become President of the United States.

      This is the White Horse Prophesy from Joseph Smith in 1843. In it, Smith rewrites and updates the Book of Revelation, Chapter 2, from the Christian Bible. The hero of WHP is the rider of the white horse, then the whole of the Mormon people who are his followers.

      Romney repeated this view of his destiny in France while he was a missionary. When he came back for his third draft deferment, going to school at BYU, his nickname was "OMS," pronounced like the Spanish "hommes." That was short for the Mormon honorific "One Mighty and Strong." His wife Ann also believes it and has said so quite openly.

      Problem, to begin with, that Chapter 2 is the story of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Smith fell in love with Verse 2:

      2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
      This is Smith's departure point for the prophesy. He misread what is happening. He did not understand that the Lamb opens the Seals that bring on the end of the world. Between these events, Satan's four horsemen inflict the terrible power of his hatreds on humanity.

      For Smith, based on his writings, the white horse is a charm. It is magic.

      It protects the lies told by Mormon prophets and counselors when they mislead the "Gentile" world. Lies are cast as the most powerful weapon to obtain political position and power.

      Worse yet, it took hold. Brigham Young boasted that Mormons would have the "smoothest liars.":

      ...the White Horse Prophecy has been embraced by Mormon culture... Glenn Beck has referred to this in his own crazed rants over and over. The White Horse prophecy is embedded into the very fabric of Mormonism."

      -- Renato Wardle, Happy Valley, Utah

      First Rider is identified in The Revelation as the final anti-christ, the Anti-Christ.

      Mitt Romney does not read the Christian bible. He has never read the Christian Bible. He has never read any part of Christian explanations or annotations, related to The Revelation of St. John the Divine.

      Mitt Romney is not a supernatural being. His successes at politics have applied his intelligence, but also have relied on criminal acts such as slander and perjury and forgery, repeatedly. Not magic. His sense of his own destiny has been modeled as he has said for 50 years on the Mormon "White Horse Prophesy." (He denies it.) At its core Smith's work reverses the meanings of scripture to make the Christian Anti-Christ into a conquering hero.

      You folks thought Nixon and Bush43 were bad ????? Romney is 50 years into the cult belief "White Horse Prophesy." He might as well see himself as Sigfried in Wagner's "Ring" or a mad gunner in a video game.

      "Robotic." "Machine like." America should be so lucky.
