    The Cushing MLP Opportunity Fund 1 LP is a private company in Dallas, TX. I called them and left a message stating I am "interested" in investing in the fund, to try and see what the funds portfolio is about.


    Very telling. Your thoughts?

    Isnt this only one of the JW entities?
  • sir82
    Yeah, for which corporation is this? The Watchtower uses dozens, although WTBTS Pennsylvania and WTBTS New York are (I believe) the largest.

    Interesting they show a huge loss in 2013. I'd be interested to see what 2014 looks like....and I'd like to see if any of the "loss" is related to any other entity they control.

    Well if losses have been trending it explains the plea and manipulation for money doesn't it?

    Thats huge loss when you think about it. They have what, 7 years left? lol

  • bafh
    why do all their tax returns only report their "investment activities" and not the donations received?

    I think the Borg is just trying to pick up and enhance the profits it was accumulating a few years ago and that's why

    the cry for more money now.

    Money that they wanted to spend on new modern facilities such as Warwick, New York and the new branch facilities in the UK.

    It isn't because they are broke its more in reality that they just want more to serve their own means. $$$

    Back in a couple years ago the WTS got drunk on money upon selling most of its properties in Brooklyn New York. They liked that feeling, now they want to get drunk again.

    Optimist: Watchtower MUST be hurting for money. Look at all the downsizing and begging for money.

    Pessimist: NO WAY they are hurting. They just sold property worth half a billion with half a billion more to go and they get a billion a year in donations. Appearing to be hurting is only a ploy to get more donations.

    Antagonist: We will never know. So just STFU about it.

    Conspiracist: What about the billions of dollars those Gilead missionaries got caught with on the Swiss/Italian border, and the secret tunnels under Brooklyn?

    Thanks for the site and info. Great resource.


    The PA Corp is "Watch Tower" with a space. The NY one is "Watchtower".


    Old CO Rokus just about had a tantrum because the local BOE didn't know the difference.

    But not just NY there must be dozens of WT corps in the States. Like in FL and in CO, etc.


    Then there's the...


    and the...


    And there's all kinds of charities, insurances, funds, foundations and trusts at:
