It worked so well here, why not the US too?

Kim Dotcom is blagging on about starting the Internet party in the US.

Internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom says he will be “Hillary’s worst nightmare” as he revealed plans for a US version of the Internet Party.

Dotcom, who is fighting extradition to the US where he is wanted on piracy charges took to Twitter today to announce the new political movement.

“The Internet Party is coming to the United States in 2015. Stay tuned for our celebrity founders from the music, film and Internet industry,” Dotcom posted.

Minutes later he clarified that his role in the party would be limited.

“The Internet Party US will be well funded and run by American citizens. I will help with Public Relations ;-)”.

Dotcom said however that he would be “Hillary’s worst nightmare in 2016!” The statement appears to be a reference to Hillary Clinton, who is the favourite to win the Democrats’ nomination to fight the 2016 US presidential election.

Gee it worked so well in New Zealand didn’t it…dead last.

After poo-fingering Mana and Hone Harawira he now wants to poo-finger Hillary Clinton. Helping with public relations? Snort.

Rumour is the party will be headquartered in Leavenworth and the new uniform will be orange onesies.

What a complete drop kick. I hope he goes to the launch or will he lack the courage to fly there to launch it?

    Having recently voted again against the UN Resolution for the Non Proliferation of Naziism, Mr Komm might find the USA a fertile Breeding Ground for his unique blend of Nationalism and Socialism.

  • Yeah, right, whatever…

    The sky is clearly a different colour on Planet Dotkrim

  • kayaker

    Is he going to be helping out with the PR from jail?

    • Wheninrome

      Perhaps he has taken lessons from the “pedo murdering scumbag” he ran a business whilst in prison.
      Maybe this is considered rehab.

  • Warwick

    Vanity is leading to this man’s undoing

  • He is just cleverly keeping himself in the public eye. The MSM are being played – again!

  • yoyoyo

    He needs to go to jail to save himself from …… himself.

  • GazzaNZ

    This is coming from the man who recently said he regretted starting the Internet Party in NZ. Does he really think he’ll have better fortunes in US politics? They don’t have MMP for starters!

    • JAFA Gazza

      KDC has MMP in the USA….Many MANY Problems….

  • Sunshine

    They don’t play so nice in the USA. KDC couldn’t handle the big boys game.

    • Tom

      I was thinking that. It’s like when you’re a little kid and the water slide you jumped into turned out to be more of a washing machine.

  • JAFA Gazza

    So…this is the bloke that last week declared he was broke after spending $10m in legal fees…now this week said he made $40million since 2012…has an ex that is taking him for $23million….is a wanted fugitive in the USA…where he is going to offer PR advice on how to set up and run a political party that came dead last here…..

    I wish I knew what Kool Aid he is drinking, I want some. I could then be head unicorn of fairyland and marry a mermaid.

    Ed: Spelling…as always….

  • Kevin

    Good god. If anyone’s a sociopath it’s KDC.

  • Brian of Mt Wellington

    Is he now going to try and get some politician in the USA to back him so he can have a crack at stopping his extradition. They are bigger boys over there than him and will tear him up for loo paper. He has to be on some sort of drug because a normal person wouldn’t act like him, the fool.

  • What a goober. I thought he was out of money and admitted that his involvement in NZ politics wasn’t such a good idea? I mean, when will the MSM hold him to accou…wait, never mind.

  • stephen2d

    The reason why he clarified “his involvement” is that only US citizens and green card holders with permanent address in USA are allowed to donate money. But, even then, his “vast fortune” will allow him only to buy maybe ten seconds on an obscure channel in Nebraska.

    The muppet is only trying to “impress” the gullible mollyhawks and MSM in NZ.

    The man is a convicted fraudster.

  • stephen2d

    And here is my clarification, even indirect donations and lobbying in US politics by non citizens is strictly prohibited and is a federal offence. No messing like with EC here.

    • MaryLou

      Let’s hope he goes for it then :) Good luck KDC!

  • Lux

    This made me lolololol out loud today, you just have to laugh !!

  • Red

    The sycophants and trend of the week whingers will lap it up, just like here…. all 1.2% of them…. Oh… And the media, of course

  • coltheman

    Hopefully he takes Hone Harre and Corkery with him.I mean, they were all part of his highly successful team here.

    • mommadog

      Please please also take Leila. Send her over to help set up the party. She can do some more skiing.

  • abbaby

    A Herald article says he has earned $40 million since 2011. Can I ask how? What is the secret? Does being a pseudo-celebrity in NZ pay that much?

    • Benoni

      Ripping off other peoples intellectual property and selling bootleg versions of songs and movies via dubious file storage services set up exactly for that purpose has always been a highly lucrative criminal activity. It has the downside of a long prison term if they catch up with you.

      • Kevin

        It’s on par with cocaine trafficking. And it’s only a matter of time before things catch up with KDC. He can’t play the delay game forever.

        • Benoni

          He has managed to stay 1 step ahead of the law in Hong Kong and then in the Philipines. I am picking he will do a runner and abscond without the encumbrance of being under arrest.

          • Kevin

            I’m betting he’ll try. Either that or he’ll try and bump himself off when he finds himself in a jail cell and heading to Virginia.

  • peterwn

    This would make the GOP’s day, help run the donkey right out of town.

  • Day Day

    The democratic attack machine with have this proposed outfit listing heavily to starboard in minutes, should it get any useful exposure.

  • Time For Accountability

    Why stop there.
    Take over the world via the United Nations.

    Opps there is already a queue of New Zealand politicians in front of him.

  • Pete

    …Please take Harre..please take Harre

    Mind you, they jail traitors there, so she wouldn’t be too keen.!

    • Tom

      Yeah can they hire a whole plane and drop off the like of Wussell , Mojo Mathers and all the others that crap stir here as well.
      I reckon their time here is done.

  • Wine Man

    Its just a cunning ploy by the CIA, I can see the candidates already including KDC, Edward Snowdon and Julianne Assange having to travel to the USA in person to lodge their candidate papers. Gosh why didn’t we all think of it months ago, they could have run for the Senate!

  • BooHooNotMyFault

    I thought he said he was bankrupt???

  • zotaccore

    He needs to see a psychiatrist… really. This narcissistic behavior, I mean really, can’t he be treated for it?

    • Kevin

      He’s playing the game.
