A Tale of Two Mormon Utahs :
Utah Mormons Are a Conservative Bunch That Vote for Protecting their Families, Their Guns. and Their Property from Government Overreach. Through the Republican Conventions, the Neighborhood Delegates, selected at their Neighborhood Caucus, would consistently support like minded candidates. Then came the Age of Hinckley.
The Age of Hinckley and the “We are Just Like You Campaign”
Gordon B Hinckley was more concerned with Positive Press than he was with Traditional Values. The Mormon Church wanted the world to see that Mormons are just like everybody else. Hinckley wanted the 2001 Winter Olympics in Utah no matter what the cost. Of course, that opened the door for doing business like everyone else that wanted to win over the Olympic Committee.
The result was a bribery investigation and a reported endless supply of underage female escorts for the visiting foreign International Olympic Committee Members.
“Referring to the escort service investigation, as well as acknowledged wrongdoings such as direct cash payments as high as $70,000 to I.O.C. members, Seed said: ”It’s quite appalling. It goes against all the values of this community.”
Seed added: ”Basically, what’s unfolding here is evidence that the people who were working to secure the Olympics for Salt Lake City would stop at nothing. They would sell out every value the community holds dear. That is so unacceptable and so horrifying. We will have to deal with the consequences for years.” (New York Times)
The Scandal would have destroyed Hinckley’s dream of Showcasing his new Mormonism at the Winter Olympics. Mormon politicians, with Hinckley’s blessing, brought in the Extreme Liberal, Perpetual Losing, Mormon Politician from Massachusetts to Clean up the Salt Lake Olympic Committees International Scandal.
“The key was the Church Olympic Coordinating Committee established in October 1995, “a kind of clearinghouse for the church’s Olympic efforts.” Co-chaired by Apostles Robert D. Hales and Henry B. Eyring, members of the Quorum of the Twelve, the church’s second-highest leadership group, the committee also included M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Seventy; H. David Burton, the presiding bishop of Salt Lake; and Bruce L. Olsen, managing director of public affairs for the church.” (Daily Kos)
It was the Mormon Church that brought Romney in to Salvage the Reputation of the Church and Their Scandal Plagued Olympics.
“A small group of Mormon Olympic leaders including Governor Leavitt, Robert Garff, chairman of SLOC’s Executive Committee and Robert Hales, the LDS church’s top Olympic liaison, met at the Governor’s Mansion to chart the future of SLOC. Hales recommended hiring Willard “Mitt” Romney (ibid)
The Great Salt Lake City Olympics Cover-up.
Mitt Romney was the alleged, “Shredder in Chief”. Any and all documents implicating his fellow Hinckleyites in wrong doing simply disappeared. Of course with his buddies in the Bush White House, Romney was able to get the full support of the Justice Department. No real prosecutions or convictions ever resulted from the scandal. But, Hinckley had to cut multiple back-room deals to get the fresh coat of whitewash paint that covered the filth that brought the Olympics to Utah.
Political Favors Are a Double Edged Sword.
Romney and the Bushes needed Hinckley’s full support for their Global Military Expansion following 9/11. Mormon Prophets have traditionally denounced war. A compromised Gordon B Hinckley simply told an International Mormon Audience that War was just a natural part of living in the American Empire. Even more exasperating to Conservative Mormons, HInckley made sure that war profiteer, Dick “Halliburton” Cheney, was awarded a Doctorate of Public Service for his role in the new wars of Middle East conquest.
Gadianton Handshake Reveals Who Knows the "Great Secret"
Hinckley Secret Handshake Club.
As Part of the Mormon Popularity Campaign, Hinckley uses a familiar Mormon and Masonic Grip to let his Co-Conspirator know that nobody else will figure this stuff out. Fellow Gadianton Romney on the right
Mitt Romney Reportedly Leveraged Leniency to Raise Political Contributions From the Tainted
… some of the contacts Romney made during that time were key figures in the scandal, yet he remains connected to some of them, and continues to receive their sizable campaign donations. The closeness of these bonds calls into question Romney’s ethical compass……
…one circle of Romney donors tied to a tainted Olympic contractor who has given more than a million dollars in campaign donations. After being granted immunity by prosecutors, the contractor, Sead Dizdarevic, admitted making $131,000 in cash payments to Romney’s predecessors. The cash was used, at least in part, to subsidize the IOC gifts. Yet it was Romney, not his indicted predecessors, who awarded Dizdarevic the hospitality deal that’s made him the ticket king of the Olympics to this day….

Book of Mormon Warnings About Secret Combinations IN THE CHURCH
22 And it came to pass that they did have their signs, yea, their asecret signs, and their bsecret words; and this that they might distinguish a brother who had entered into the covenant, that whatsoever wickedness his brother should do he should not be injured by his brother, nor by those who did belong to his band, who had taken this covenant.
I command you that ye retain all their oaths, and their covenants, and their agreements in their secret abominations; yea, and all their asigns and their wonders ye shall bkeep from this people, that they know them not, lest peradventure they should fall into darkness also and be destroyed.
Church Leaders, Lawyers and Judges Behind Ancient Secret Combinations
27 Now it came to pass that those judges had many friends and kindreds; and the remainder, yea, even almost all the lawyers and the high priests, did gather themselves together, and unite with the kindreds of those judges who were to be tried according to the law.
28 And they did enter into a acovenant one with another, yea, even into that covenant which was given by them of old, which covenant was given and administered by the bdevil, to combine against all righteousness.
29 Therefore they did combine against the people of the Lord, and enter into a covenant to destroy them, and to deliver those who were guilty of murder from the grasp of justice, which was about to be administered according to the law.
30 And they did set at defiance the law and the rights of their country; and they did covenant one with another to destroy the governor, and to establish a aking over the land, that the land should no more be at bliberty but should be subject unto kings.
