TREASON: "Treason doth never prosper; what's the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it treason." Sir John Harrington, 1561-1612
The Who and How they Own and Control it All!
by Walter Burien
December 15th 2009
I will note that the most important fact the people need to know is that in collective totals government (thousands of individual government entities) owns by stock ownership; bond participation; and equity participation most of the large public traded companies such as technology; pharmaceuticals; energy; banks; insurance; and war industry groups through collective ownership (in many a case 71% to 83% ownership)
There is no one individual government entity that will call the shots for these companies (even though some carry more clout than others) but there are private associations that network thousands of local and federal government accounts that have been assigned representative proxy vote rights for the thousands they represent and here is where the control rests.
By proxy vote representing the "collective" primary shareholders they can exert pressure for that company to do as told and if not they can remove the board of directors by representative proxy vote. On the other hand they can network millions if not billions of dollars of government investment capital for direction and investment with any company.
So, no matter from which side you look at it, the control factor is there.. Do a search for what financial consulting "private associations" with nice government sounding acronyms your many different local governments belongs to and the patterns of control will start coming into view.
For the CAFR local government's Annual Financial Report, the two primary private associations that call the shots by direction and consult are GFOA (Government Financial Officers Association) and GASB (Government Accounting Standards Board). Find the common denominators for your local government pensions (which in collective totals are in the trillions of dollars) and here is where the collective power is exerted.
Local and federal entities are restricted from owning individually more that 5% of any company, but by networking their 5% with hundreds if not thousands of other local and federal investment portfolios through these private associations, they bypass any restrictions per monopoly and exerting undue influence on the companies they collectively own. Understanding this is VERY important to comprehend how the undercurrents of control are exerted.
On another note, most people don't realize the Democratic and Republican parties are 100% "private associations" designed from the get-go to have their people placed for access to the massive capital flow running through government. (Standing at 15 trillion dollars collective gross income generated each years for local and federal as of 2007 from all sources).
You have to ask yourself "What is the intent of these private associations and our government officials?" Is it to make your life better or to enrich themselves giving the "impression" they are there to make your life better.. Well, it does not take to high of an IQ to see the end result of their intent played out in final result. Easy money has brought us to a point of massive theft. Not just of our property and income but also in our environment to maintain a healthy and good life-style.
It does not matter if 95% of us have good intent, when that 3% factor can steal it all in obscurity maintained, there is a slight tad bit of a problem for us all. The new CAFR1 documentary soon to be released will address this problem and offer definitive remedy that can be applied to correct this circumstance, and improve vastly the economy we are living in. (Worldwide application will apply here also)
