ThunderBall Films is successfully putting together the movie production of Escape from Paradise and has received a new LOI (Letter of Intent) from actress Bai Ling who starred with Richard Gere in the film Red Cross.

This includes a commitment from a CPA firm who does tax credit financing in Ireland, a possible location to film, as part of the package needed for investors – along with the CPA firm’s commitment to apply for and finance the tax credits if ThunderBall does shoot in Ireland and what portion of the budget they would provide.

Escape from Paradise – the Promotional Trailer

Meg Whitman, Goldman Sachs, and California

So far Meg Whitman has not been forthcoming about her relationship with her ex-housekeeper who Meg employed for nine years—nine years!

Meg Whitman

Meg Whitman

 There is no word from Meg on her possible and probable violation of IRS, federal, and state tax laws. There are a slew of tax reporting forms to fill out when you hire someone to work in your home. Meg should know this. After all she has an MBA from Harvard, and ran a major corporation.

Meg either filed the tax forms falsely, or didn’t file at all—either case not good.

Meg is used to doing things her way and has a temper. Grandmotherly Meg turns out to be something of a thug.

In June 2007, an eBay employee, Young Mi Kim, claimed that Ms. Whitman became angry and forcefully pushed her in an executive conference room at eBay’s headquarters.

Of the incident, Ms. Kim said, “Yes, we had an unfortunate incident, but we resolved it in a way that speaks well for her and for eBay.” Sure does—Meg paid Ms. Kim a six-figure sum to quiet the issue.

This behavior seems to run in the family. Meg’s son, Griffith Rutherford Harsh V, (as in Henry VIII) was charged with felony battery for breaking a woman’s ankle after an altercation. Meg got him out on $25,000 bail, and the charges were (somehow) dropped. Griffith was also suspended for a year from Princeton on an alleged rape charge. The affair was settled quietly—after all, Meg donated $30,000,000 to Princeton.

Some people with money think they can break all the rules—and, unfortunately, short of something like murder, they can.

Her former (illegal) household employee is not the worst thing about Meg Whitman insofar as the California election is concerned. There’s more.

What is worse is that Meg Whitman is, and has been, a tool of Goldman Sachs. Wouldn’t Goldman Sachs just love to be handling California’s finances?

The media avoids mention of the fact that Meg Whitman was on Goldman’s board.

There she served on the compensation committee—the committee which approved multi-million dollar bonus packages for then-CEO Henry Paulson and his top aides.

Goldman Sachs also, manages Whitman’s fortune.

As CEO of eBay, Whitman earned approximately $1.78 million resulting from a shady practice known as spinning (IPO insider trading) whereby executives who did business with Goldman Sachs could reap profits by getting early deals before the public on hot Goldman IPOs. T

Meg was able to buy into Goldman Sachs IPOs before they were offered to the public, allowing her to reap sure profits.

Meg Whitman has a multi-million dollar stake in 21 different investment funds managed by Goldman. Maybe some of those funds are in Goldman’s major investments in California state finances.

Goldman Sachs has made vast profits by aiding in the destruction of the economies of the U.S, and Greece, not to mention American homeowners.

Goldman Sachs executives have contributed heavily to the Whitman campaign.

Now Goldman hopes to be riding into California holding on the apron strings of Meg Whitman.
