The Profiteers: Bechtel and the Men Who Built the World by Sally Denton (2016).
Insider testimony from Emery Smith, keeps referring to the 300 corporations that run the world. Having read this book, I would guess that maybe 50 of those corporations are based outside the US, the remaining 250 are probably contractors of Bechtel.
I have completed 12 CSETI week long trainings with Dr. Steven Greer. On each one, there would be one meditation dedicated to praying for peace –praying that these corporations disclose UFO technology for the benefit of all. Dr. Greer named the corporations and the individuals … Bechtel is definitely on his list.
This book makes it clear that Bechtel should be a household name, as recognizable as “Google”, “Apple” or “Netflix”, even though it is the largest privately own corporation, and the most secret. As a ‘private’ corporation it does not have to publicly report to the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), and so it operates effectively in the shadows.
Starting with the Hoover Dam on the Colorado River (on the cover photo above) in Nevada (in the 1930s), the Bechtel family has made a practice of bidding on only government projects. Starting in 2007, it achieved 94% privatization of the National Laboratories in the US, many of them responsible for developing nuclear weapons. Now that these formerly govt. agencies are under the aegis of a private corporation, no more FOIA requests will be granted on their activities … how convenient.
Bechtel contracts are cost-plus 10%. They add a 30% management fee. Budget overruns are the norm. Few other companies can compete with them. In the 1980s they sold chemical plants to Saddam Hussein, then when the war started they sell to the US military, when the war comes to a close, they sold the clean up of the chemical plants … all with US tax payer dollars. Nice contracts … if you can get them.
Fortunately, my college library had a copy of this book published in 2016, and probably put on the shelf at that time. Sadly, I was the first person to sign it out in May of 2018 — no one reads books anymore. Many thanks to Catherine Austin Fitts for recommending this book. Of course, her baliwick is the $40 Trillion that has left the US economy since 1998 and been diverted into the ‘space’ economy. A few sentences in this book allude to that possibility but you still need to read through lines and ponder the implications. Much is inferred with regard to the space economy — it is a little like reading tea leaves. Here are some tantalizing (if depressing) excerpts:
p 157 … a world awash in plutonium … Bechtel was the poster child for GOCO (government owned, contractor operated) mechanism dating back to the Manhattan Project … the company would be awash in government money.
p 233 … more powerful than the US Army
p 256 Privatize the Apocalypse
p 257 Privatize the Apocalypse
p 258 Privatize the Apocalypse
p 259 Privatize the Apocalypse
p 260 Privatize the Apocalypse
p 261 Privatize the Apocalypse
p 295 The Exxon of Space … with projects as disparate as commercializing space …
For any activist seeking to make corporations accountable, this book is a must read.
In addition, I strongly recommend that you access this video presentation:
Scientists Under Attack: Genetic Engineering in the Magnetic Field of Money (original title: is a 2010 German documentary by Bertram Verhaag. Again I got it from my municipal library in the Okanagan BC Canada.
