Government’s Conflict Of Interest


As I was going through my emails, I got yet another request from someone who wanted me to sign a petition to send to my political “representative” in office, asking politely to stop funding big oil companies. I sighed in disillusionment, trying to think of a way to make people understand that this form of political action is absolutely useless in a corporate government.

I am so saddened as of late that these types of “petitions” are the focus of so much wasted energy. Writing, calling, and even worse… emailing your “representative” in this kind of futile effort is the worst part of our mutually controlled opposition. The sense of satisfaction and patriotism that is felt by these actions is indeed exactly the desired effect of these actions. They accomplish nothing, and yet makes whole groups feel a sense of accomplishment. A petition has NO legal jurisdiction. A letter is scanned and then filed in the trash, while emails are dumped into a folder on a digital archive never to be seen again.

What a game we play – pawns moving around exactly as we are lead, never changing anything, begging our masters to do what’s right and to start representing us. It’s pathetic!

Don’t you understand? The government owns Exxon Mobile. It has controlling stock interest in the company. It owns British Petroleum, Chevron, and any other petroleum based companies you can think of. If it didn’t have a major or controlling financial interest in BP, that gulf oil spill would have been immediately cleaned up! It wouldn’t have cost the government anything to force this corporation to clean up its mess.

Don’t you Understand? Of course the government gives billions and billions in R&D grants to Pharmaceuticals and medical companies. Government owns those as well, both national and international. It hands these subsidies to these companies because it is profitable for government!!! It must do this to justify its tax collections.

Don’t you understand? They wont stop giving their own profitable businesses subsidies (taxpayer money) just because you say pretty please. They wont stop making a profit to save a few square miles of farmland or housing. And they certainly wont change anything just because a bunch of pussified patriots sign a piece of paper demanding it.

And so, I have compiled this list of just the New York State Retirement Fund’s holdings in Pharmaceuticals, oil companies, the media, and other industries. This is only one out of over 200,000 governments, Federal, state, and local. And if just one single government owns this much in these companies, the answers to the following questions should be as clear as day… government owns and profits from these corporations, and passes the laws which regulate them and to guarantee those profits, regardless of what the public wants. The answer to all questions is simple… it’s just business.

Why are pharmaceuticals and medical companies out of control and killing people? Why is cancer the number one most profitable business, despite proven cures? Why are vaccines soon to be mandatory without one shred of evidence as to them being medically sound? Why are banks allowed to charge practically unlimited interest despite usury laws? Why are banks allowed to foreclose on millions and millions of homes? Why are banks allowed to ignore state laws in lieu of federal laws? Why are products made in China all over the stinking place? Why are dangerous and poisonous products being imported into America? Why is the American market so saturated with foreign products? Why was Exxon and BP not required to clean up their historical oil spills? Why is oil still being used when such vast and wonderful alternatives are all around us? Why is the media lying and misinforming us at every turn, supporting government in every way?

All of these questions are answered by this simple realization…

Government owns it all!!!

Government is in a direct conflict of interest by being major majority shareholder (owner) of all significant corporations, both foreign and domestic.

The following is the New York Pension System holdings in major corporations around the world in 2009. This incomplete list and a 2010 list can be downloaded here:

I challenge you to find a company this government doesn’t own stock in!

  1. Amen brother, if you have the impetus to spend the time and compose a letter, email or call your representative, you have the time to do something more meaningful.

    Simply, forward the corporate nation to every one you know, Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, etc… People at first say WTF, then some say this is BS..

    DO IT …!

    thanks clint

    Thank you. Dug that Nation Opt Out Day video. I am refusing future scans. I’ll have to be groped I guess. Very difficult to unplug from the matrix when the kids still depend. Peace. Just Read Free Lunch by David Johnston. What the hell can we do?

    According to Bloomberg reports: “New York State Common Retirement Fund is a privately owned pension fund.” http://investing.businessweek.com/research/stocks/private/snapshot.asp?privcapId=3534915

    you think the government owns the corporations. It is the other way around. Corporations own the government. You are still right about the uselessness of writing letters

    • I appreciate your belief, and it would certainly seem that way, wouldn’t it?

      But the term ownership, when it is used in its proper or legal form, defeats that fallacy…

      “A stock corporation is a for-profit corporation where the ownership of the corporation is expressed by shares of stock. This allows for the ownership of the corporation to be readily determined, as shares are property and are transferable as any other property such as money, subject to any conditions imposed such as restriction on resale. The owner of the shares of a corporation is a stockholder. If a stockholder owns at least 50% of a corporation’s voting shares, plus one share, they have a controlling interest in the corporation, since they have more votes than all other owners combined.”

      While I can show that the pension funds and other municipal and stated government investment funds are heavily invested into corporations, meaning that each one is a partial owner of those corporations, in the same turn you cannot show me that a corporation or person owns shares of any government. While I can show you how government uses its stock shares in proxy voting of corporations such as voting for the Board of Directors and mergers and acquisitions, you cannot show me where corporations use this power with government.

      This is not to say that lobbying is not ever-present or that this government is not a series of private corporations – we can agree on that – this is just to say that the “ownership” function can be proven. All of government are corporations, just as cities are “municipal corporations”.

      The New York State Pension System, if you do a bit of research, is held in trust and controlled by the State Treasurer of New York. It is just as “private” as any other government corporation, in a public way.

      Thanks for the comment.

  5. Gov’t-corporate mix, yet another violation of our rights. The gov’t constantly violates our rights.

    They violate the 1st Amendment by caging protesters and banning books like “America Deceived II”.

    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by allowing TSA to grope you.

    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars.

    Impeach Obama.

    Last link of “America Deceived II” before it is completely banned:

  6. “Pussified patriots”? Clearly, you think women are weak. You are a sexist pig. Too bad, because people need the info you provide. Idiot!

    • Feminism, really? How silly… Learn about your language before you use it incorrectly and be the idiot you accuse men of being.

      PUS’SINESS, noun [from pussy.] A state of being swelled or bloated; inflation; hence, shortness of breath.

      PUSILLANIM’ITY, noun [Latin pusillanimitas; pusillus, small, weak, and animus, courage.] Want of that firmness and strength of mind which constitutes courage or fortitude; weakness of spirit; cowardliness; that feebleness of mind which shrinks from trifling or imaginary dangers. It is obvious to distinguish between an act of pusillanimity and an act of great modesty or humility.

      PUSILLAN’IMOUS, adjective 1. Destitute of that strength and firmness of mind which constitute courage, bravery and fortitude; being of weak courage; mean spirited; cowardly; applied to persons; as a pusillanimous prince. 2. Proceeding from weakness of mind or want of courage; feeble; as pusillanimous counsels.
