True, and they know that they need the materials provided in many of the small countries they supply arms to. Diamonds in Sierra Leone, Gold in any number of small african countries. They can make their prices as large as are needed, because they control who is truly on top.

They also fear dissension more than anything else. They have not forgotten the lesson learned in the manhatten project. One renegade scientist can change the face of the world, just by leaking a secret.

There is no doubt in my mind that they will kill and have killed to protect these secrets, under the guise of national security. They are almost completely sheltered by the government, because they hold many of the governments secrets in the palm of their hands. Secret societies put these corporations at the top of their "want" lists because of the immense power they wield.

Yeah, you're forgetting to tell me how you got more researchers in a day than I got in a week...

I'm thinking of scrapping my project and just incorporating it into yours. That might work, eh?

I could be responsible for administration members connections with industry.

Whatever, man, I'm there.

Did you get ahold of ADVISOR yet?

posted on Mar, 2 2004 @ 03:24 PM
I sent a U2U to advisor.

Dude I love your research thread, I think the only way I got more was cause this was a thread first then a research thread.You could incorporate it if you want or keep it seperate, I will support it either way.

I like yours cause you have a detailed plan of attack.
Im still fleshing out details and I dont want to fall short of expectations.

I think people consider it too difficult. I don't think I need to go that deep, just like a general career file on the cabinet members.

If it got done, I think we could use it to make your project easier, ya?

Oh it would do a whole lot to simplify it.

I'm just going to send ADVISOR the list of the members I have, with my proposal tomorrow and hope others jump on board later.

Otherwise, we'll have some work to do. We might as well just do both at the same time since they're so closely related.

Well the corporations research thread is currently on pause until Delta's thread is complete.

So lets get the discussion flowing again.

Moves at disney, more mergers on the horizon.

The meeting of the World Trade Organization in Seattle was shut down by the intervention of over 20,000 civilians, and shortly therafter the meeting of the IMF/World Band in Washington, DC was imilarly sabotaged.
Thanks to the courage and cooperation of a variety of individuals and groups acting (consciously or not) according to the guidlines set forth in the Crimthinc. pamphlet How to Throw a Proper Street Party, people on the West and then East coasts of the USA discovered the joys of acting directly to achieve their golas instead of waiting for politicians and businessmen to consider their requests.
In the process they happened upon a perfect integration of the methods and desires of all who were present at the demonstrations, from well-behaved sign-holders to black-masked corporate-window-display-smashing narchists. Some of the "peaceful" protesters misunderstood how much more seriously their demands were taken thanks to the threat implied by the direct actions of the more radical participants, but the lesson was not wasted on posterity.

"Trade. Making Life Better"

now moved to:

"Trade. Making Life Bitter."

I'm also surpized that we have not spoken about the world bank, the biggest criminal cartel present today. Multiple other threads have mentioned or centered on this fact, as it is an important one in relation to the NWO and to Corporate takeovers of small countries.

In short, the World Bank is the most profitable loan shark business that the world has ever seen. People can run dry on cash, but a country, a country can be raped for years to come. Lending to small, struggling countries at exorbitant interest rates insures their control of the economy there. While the country struggles to pay the money off, the World Bank is able to presure it into allowing favored organizations into the country, in order to turn a profit.

This cycle repeats itself, going on and on until the economy of the country has collapsed to the point of rebellion. All this, and they are recognized as a respected financial institution. An organization of this power by necessity will play a large role in the endgame to come

Unhealthy Demands
Wal-Mart is coming! Wal-Mart is coming!

That's the industry emergency that Safeway, one of the largest U.S. grocery chains, is using to justify its anti-worker drive in California.

Safeway is leading the charge to demand givebacks from striking and locked out grocery workers in Southern California. Along with Albertsons and Ralphs (Kroger's), Safeway's Vons and Pavilion stores are asking employees to start paying for a major chunk of their health insurance. Under the companies' proposals, workers and their families will lose $4,000 to $6,000 a year in health insurance benefits.

The companies' ultimate goal, says Jill Cashen of the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), which represents the grocery workers, is "effective elimination of health benefits in their stores, and ultimately in the entire industry."

Refusing to accept the companies' concessionary demands, Safeway workers went on strike in October. In a show of corporate solidarity, Albertsons and Ralph's then locked out their employees. Safeway, Kroger's and Albertsons control 60 percent of the Southern California grocery market.

As the labor dispute has dragged out into its third month, the striking and locked out workers have seen their strike pay cut -- down to $100 a week -- and their health benefits run out.

But the workers "will not be starved into giving up their health insurance," says Cashen.

Safeway and the other chains' justification for their concessionary demands is the threat posed by non-union grocery sellers, foremost among them Wal-Mart.

"There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding this negotiation because of the dramatic changes we have seen and experienced in our industry," according to Vons President Tom Keller. "We are seeing a significant influx of non-union, discount stores and unionized independent operators with union contract agreements that provide lower wages and significantly fewer benefits than we provide. These formats pay much lower labor expenses than we do. This gives them an unfair advantage over other union operators."

But while Wal-Mart is certainly a serious threat to economic justice and worker well-being (see "Corporations Behaving Badly: The Ten Worst Corporations of 2001," Multinational Monitor, December 2001), the Wal-Mart menace is not the real reason for Safeway's demands.

The real reason is simply the company's greed, and its desire to offset a series of bad business moves.

Wal-Mart isn't yet even in the Southern California market. The company has announced plans to open 40 supercenters throughout California; analysts estimate that would give Wal-Mart 1 percent of the regional market.

Not exactly a big enough threat to explain why Safeway and the others would weather a strike and lock-out that is costing them hundreds of millions of dollars in lost earnings.

Interesting piece.

Interesting link indeed. However, that 1% of the market share would expand rather quickly unless veyr active measures were taken by Safeway. As for this lockout, it's also hurtign their stock and minimizing leverage as well as liquid capital available. This is goign to hurt them, and hurt them big.

Now I am not partisan and this information should be brought about for ever administration but this is the only one I have found so far.

A comprehensive look at the corporate connections and backgrounds of almost every Bush cabinet member.

Corporate Cabinet?

This is an excerpt from our research thread on Bush's cabinet on what I deduced from this information.

Revolving Door Project


Paul Wolfowitz, Deputy Defense Secretary. Received $300,000 from Hughes Electronics as co-chair of Nunn-Wolfowitz task force; Dean of Johns Hopkins U. School of Advanced International Studies


On December 1, 1999 the Board of directors of Hughes Electronics Corporation approved the Nunn-Wolfowitz Taks Force Charter. The charter comissions former Senator Sam Nunn and Ambassador Paul Wolfowitz , supported by personnel from Kin & Spalding to make recommendations to the Board concerning any changes in Hughes' operations and procedures that may be necessary or desirable to ensure that it has in place a "best practices" standard for complying with the letter and spirit of U.S export control laws and regulations.


Hughes Electronics Corporation is a world-leading provider of digital television entertainment, broadband satellite and network services, and global video and data broadcasting. It trades under the ticker symbol HS on the New York Stock Exchange and is 34 percent owned by Fox Entertainment Group, which is approximately 82 percent owned by News Corporation (NYSE: NWS, NWS.A).


Hughes Network Systems (HNS) is the world's leading provider of broadband satellite network solutions for businesses and consumers, with more than 600,000 systems ordered or shipped in 85 countries. HNS pioneered the development of DIRECWAY, the high-speed satellite Internet access services, and is a leading manufacturer of DIRECTV satellite television receivers. In 2004, HNS will launch SPACEWAY, a high-capacity, next-generation Ka-band satellite system that will enable new multimedia applications. Headquartered in Germantown, Maryland, HNS maintains sales and support offices worldwide.

None of Wolfowitz involvement with Hughes is listed on his official biography.

The Corporate one isnt dead its on hiatus until the Revolving Door research can be completed, which as shown above is yielding excellent information to use in conjunction with this eventual research thread.
