Investing in Fear on Fox

Fox News inadvertently revealed another reason why it loves to terrorize Americans with fears of foreign terrorists. It not only helps keep George Bush and his party in power, it also makes money for lots of corporations.

This inadvertent truth came out on Fox News' "Bulls and Bears" on Saturday (Oct. 21, 2006) when host Brenda Buttner asked her panel of investment gurus for their stock predictions. Tobin Smith, of Changewave Research, seized on the hoax regarding dirty bombs being planted at NFL stadiums.

"My theory is this that this whole hoax about the NFL thing was a hoax, but it does bring reality to the fact that we are hurting here," he said.

"So I think Level-3 communcations, or LLL, has the ability and the contracts to really go to the NFL and really make these stadiums safe. I think you’re going to see this over the next couple years, I think L-3, LLL, probably is up 25 percent by spring training.”

Let me get this straight. The fact that there was no threat at all against NFL stadiums means we are unsafe and have to spend more money to keep stadiums safe. Huh? The so-called "threat" was so amateurish to begin with that some media never even reported it. Some journalists, like Keith Olbermann, were smart enough to figure out that one of the seven football "stadiums" threatened did not even exist. The hoax had warned that the football stadium in New York City would be targeted, when that city doesn't even have a football stadium (at least one where games are still played.) The closest one is in New Jersey.

Just look at the recent No-Bid contract that was given by Gov. Shwarzenegger to GEO a Private company that runs Prisons in United States, Canada, South Africa, Australia, and soon, in the United Kingdom. They have Facilities in Cali, Tex,NM,AZ,FL,NY,LA and other states. Their stock went from 13.00 to over 39.00 in a matter of months. The majority of Board members are ex-government.

I like Fox because they let me choose from a menu that which I might choose to be afraid of today. LOL.

Yes, L3 Communications... isn't that the same L3 wrapped up with the spy satellite stuff... you know the L3 who Sean Connery is a "major player" in. Didn't they hook up with Raytheon on the kinetic KV's for BMD?

Nuthin' goin' on there eh. Pie' makes an astute point about the prisons and their BoD's... look in all the big trans-nats... golden parachutes and revolving doors for those who are in/out/whatever - ex-government or adjunct-to-government or shadow government? Contracts tendered, contracts awarded.
