Comey & Lockheed Martin https://www.zerohedg...-protect-guilty
James Comey became the Senior Vice President and General Counsel of Lockheed Martin Corporation during 2005-2010, where his 2009 pay was $6,113,797. During that time, he also was a Director of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s National Chamber Litigation Center, which works to support business interests in the courts, especially the interests of U.S.-based international corporations, including Lockheed Martin.
He owns an estimated $47M in Lockheed Martin stock.
Lockheed Martin’s largest foreign customer was the Saudi Government.
Lockheed Martin is by far the largest U.S. ‘defense’ contractor, taking 8.3% of all U.S. Government purchases
The Saud family owns the world’s largest oil company, Aramco, and hates Shia Muslims, especially Iran, which has the most Shia.
Comey then joined the board of London-based bank HSBC Holdings. Comey maxed out his contributions to Mitt Romney in 2012 and also gave to Obama’s 2008 opponent, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
This is a team that’s pro-Saud and pro U.S. billionaires, and pro Israeli billionaires, but rabidly anti Iran and Russia and China, and looking for a fight — war and increased ‘defense’-spending — against any nation (such as Syria) that’s favorable toward those ‘enemies of America’.
Defenders of the status quo are always stronger than reformers seeking change,
UNTIL the status quo self-destructs from its own corruption, and the reformers are free to build on its ashes.
