Outsourcing Genocide - It's Just Business

Robert Baer, former CIA agent with years of experience in the Middle East:

The Bush family operates like the mob and when you question it they say "it's just business."

Well we know Armstong Jones and Judy Miller are paid off hacks of this administration and the Ann Coulters and Chris Mathews of the world show how willing Bushites are to create hatred and division within America.

Perhaps the media should look at the polls and see how few people view them with any credibility.

This history is well documented throughout the National Archives but unreported by the National US media in election after election.
Goss another Bushite Iran Contra thug, also had to step down from the CIA in disgrace. His departure was superceded by the usual media distractions. Heck even terror attacks are staged to distract from these clowns. He'll likely be awarded the medal of freedom.

The Bushites Have Outsourced Our Government to Their Pals

The sprawling $43 billion homeland security department (HSD) is known chiefly for being the agency in charge of America's color-coded terrorist-threat alarm system ("Good morning, Americans. Today is Yellow. Be vigilant. Report all suspicious people.") It's boogeyman nonsense, of course, doing absolutely nothing to make our country safe. But such falderal helps those in charge obscure HSD's real mission: to serve as a giant federal cookie jar for corporate America. Go to HSD's website, and you'll find a prominent section called "Open For Business." There, on any given day, corporate shoppers can scroll through the hundreds of contracts and grants available to them. Just dip in and grab some cookies, each one worth from $50,000 to more than $80 million. Like the department's color codes, the vast majority of these projects do nothing to make our country safe. Instead, they are make-work studies, silly technologies, and useless systems that essentially serve as mediums for transferring billions of our tax dollars to a few corporate big shots. Ever helpful to its clients, HSD also maintains a private-sector office, headed by an assistant secretary who is not a security expert but a former banker from JP Morgan Chase. This office provides concierge service for cookie grabbers. For example, it recently held a corporate seminar, entitled "The Business of Homeland Security," offering "tips, hints, and directions" on how to grab the latest contracts and grants. Lest you think that patriotism or even national security might be the motivating force behind these government-industry confabs, a Sikorksy Helicopters executive who attended the session bluntly explained why he was there: "To us contractors, money is always a good thing."

Government by Corporation

A monumental shift has quietly and quickly been taking place in the way the public's business is done - and We the People have not even been informed about it, much less been asked to discuss and okay it. Corporations are taking over our government. No longer is it just a matter of big business's lobbyists and campaign donations perverting public policy. Now, politically connected corporations are also seizing day-to-day governmental operations for their own profit.

A Corporatized War

As we've learned during the last four-plus years, George W's Iraq war is run by a bumbling triumvirate composed of the White House, the Pentagon, and the Department of Halliburton.
This massive military contractor has done awfully well the past few years, thanks to its old CEO, "Buckshot" Cheney. Since the Bush Cheney regime took office, Halliburton's government contracts have increased by a stunning 600%, including more than $10 billion in Pentagon contracts - many of them awarded without the fuss and muss of competitive bidding.
In return, Halliburton has delivered gas-price gouging, contaminated food and water, and a consis- These are our "savings" from privatization.

A 2006 federal audit of $1.7 billion in Pentagon purchases found that taxpayers were soaked for excessive fees from contractors and for tens of millions of dollars in waste. One reason was "poor contracting practices." Such as? The audit reports that 92% of the contracts were awarded without verifying that the contractors provided accurate cost estimates, and 96% of the work was inadequately monitored.

It has been caught hiring Third World laborers to do its grunt work in Iraq, paying them as little as $5 a day, and then billing Uncle Sam more than $50 a day for each worker. In a February analysis of $10 billion in waste and overcharges by various contractors in Iraq, federal investigators found Halliburton responsible for $2.7 billion.

and merely details a tiny part of the larceny racing like licentious lemmings for a cliff called treason. Devoid of patriotism, loyalty or integrity the corporations of America have become its greatest enemy. The same dark element who funded the Nazi regime have risen and it is time to cast aside our innocence. These are not Americans - they are psychopathic monsters, using the country, bilking it dry of ethics, honesty, integrity or morality, aided and abetted by a mindless media.

This is what happens when money and greed are worshipped above all else and the law is merely something applied to someone else.
