Ron Weinland: Setting Up House in Europe?

A bit of interesting information; I received an e-mail from a reader who had noticed that Ron's Domain Name Server's had changed.
I went and checked it out, and sure enough, his four websites are no longer US based. Was any one else aware of this? Is this old news?

Here's what I found:

1) cog-pkg.org - The church website DNS is based in Switzerland.
2) the-end.com - The Book website DNS is also based in Switzerland.
3) ronaldweinland.com - Ron's Blog DNS is based in the UK.
4) biblical-truth.com - The HWA website is also based in the UK.
Check it out for yourself: SELF SEO

So, the big question: why has Ron moved the websites? Did he say anything about this in any announcements? If he did, I missed it. But then, I did stop listening to him.

He told everyone there was no safe place to go during the final Great Tribulation, to stay where we are. So, again, I ask; why has he moved the websites to Europe?
What's going on in his head? Why two in the UK, and two in Switzerland? That's a bit odd. Is he covering his bases "just in case"? When did he make the switch? Perhaps around the time the web design changed? I don't know if there's a way to find out how long the sites have been in Europe or not, but it would be interesting to know when he made the change.

Perhaps this is all part of the exit plan... cut ties with the US... you know; just in case he was wrong? Perhaps "W" is correct, and the Weinlands had no intention of giving back any money... any more that he intended to step down when his prophesies failed. Although, personally, even with the plan "B", I can't help but wonder if he intends to maintain power behind the scenes. Despite what the plan may be, Ron doesn't seem like one to easily give up control - over the people - over the money...and Switzerland... nice set up there for people who want to hide money. Didn't one of the blogs speculate on 'Swiss bank accounts' a while back?

Sounds to me it is time somebody from the IRS should take a look at this Guy for some possible 501C3 violations

Actually he did mention the move in his announcements. Maybe he is drinking his own flavor aid and truly thinks that web sites hosted in Europe will survive the great tribulation longer than ones in the U.S.

This is old news: We discovered this two - three months back actually.

Thus the remarks about Weinland's Swiss accounts. :-)
