GE Helped Nazi War Effort, Later Combined Forces With GEH, Westinghouse Electric, Hitachi, Toshiba To Form Global Nuclear Monopoly, Sold Defective Reactors





General Electric nuclear plant inspector Kei Sugaoka was one of the inspectors at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in 2000. He noticed a crack in the steam dryer which he videotaped. He was later ordered by Tokyo Electric Power Company TEPCO to edit this part of the tape which is illegal in the United States. 

He went public and some TEPCO managers were fired. He thought that things would change but they have not. Additionally, as a result of being a whistleblower he was also laid off by General Electric and has been struggling to get the truth out about these dangerous plants. Sugaoka has inspected plants throughout the world including in Taiwan and Europe. Interview May 5, 2011

We have learned from this nuclear plant inspector, that GE and TEPCO have a history of covering up problems, and not learning from mistakes. 

GE HELPED NAZIS, HINDERED US DURING WORLD WAR II


GE has been found guilty of helping the Nazis in a trial back in 1947. "In those hearings, GE was accused of being responsible for a "drastic shortage" of an essential material needed for manufacturing tools in the United States. This, the senators found, was in contrast with the situation in Germany, where the Nazis had an abundance of tungsten carbide.The U.S. government charged that in 1938 the American and German firms agreed to divide up the world market for carboloy. 

Before the agreement, the product sold for $48 a pound in the United States. After the agreement, GE set the price at $453 a pound or one dollar per gram. The prosecution showed that under the agreement, Krupp would control the sale of carboloy everywhere in the world except the United States and Canada, which were GE's turf. Government prosecutors refuted GE's claim that its expertise and patents were the sole reason this valuable material was available to American industry. The government brought to the witness stand a parade of businessmen who testified that they had been producing and selling tungsten carbide before the GE-German agreement went into effect.

Trial testimony showed that smaller competitors were either driven out of business or forced to go along with the price set by the monopoly. Methods used to accomplish this, according to witnesses, such as the president of the Union Wire Die Company, included forced buy-out of competitors. The head of American Cutting Alloys testified that he begged GE not to drive him out of business." http://www.truth-out.org/opinion/item/15892-another-one-the-msm-missed-ge-krupp-conspiracy-trial-of-47







NO PROTECTION FOR JAPANESE TRUTH TELLING WHISTLE BLOWERS


The discussion in the video above states that there is no protection in Japan for whistle blowers. As a result, no one comes forward to tell the truth, as this inspector did in the US, where at least there is a small amount of protection. They admit that if it were not for this nuclear inspector from the US, the secrecy would have continued and nothing would have come out in public. Is this just an isolated incident, or is there a pattern here? Let's see what another nuclear expert has to say....

According to nuclear expert Arnie Gunderson, none of the new nuclear plants being planned or built incorporate safety measures or improvements to address ANY of the 40 concerns found after looking at Fukushima plant design flaws and safety concerns that resulted in it's meltdown. 









ARNIE GUNDERSON SAYS NUCLEAR MONOPOLY IS NOT LEARNING FROM MISTAKES


Bottom line, Arnie is saying that the nuclear monopoly is NOT including any design changes that would normally come from lessons learned due to the Fukushima disaster. When the price of failure may mean the extinction of all life on the planet, one would think that they would be willing to learn something from past failures, but when one is dealing with the 1% via the global corporations, learning lessons and facing reality does not seem to be part of the way things work in their faux view of how the 1% world works. 

Why would the nuclear industry NOT learn from it's mistakes? Could it be that they are not willing to change because they get paid to fail? Think about it.. If a reactor melts down the government and you, (taxpayers) step in and pay the failed company to clean up the mess with no bid contracts. 

The government actually pays MORE in no bid contracts to try and clean up a melted down reactor than if it was normally operating, so there is an incentive for a company to cause nuclear plant meltdowns. No one goes to jail, no one is punished, but everyone gets even more cash, bonuses and raises, due to the failure of one or more nuclear reactors. 

GE BUILT AND SOLD FLIMSY DEFECTIVE NUCLEAR REACTORS, ENGINEERS QUIT IN PROTEST OVER FLAWS AND DEFECTS IN DESIGN


Multiple Fukushima reactors failed because (it could legally be argued) GE - General Electric built a defective, flimsy reactor that they KNEW would fail, before they ever sold even 1 of them. The Mark I reactor design was so bad that multiple VP engineers quit rather than be part of selling it. 

Jebus July 9, 2014 In 1976, 3 GE Scientists quit in protest over flaws in Mark 1 Reactor design

There are over thirty of these designs operating right now on this planet, some uprated with MOX fuel.

GE JUST ONE OF MANY HUGE CORPORATIONS THAT PAY NO TAXES, EXPORT MILLIONS OF JOBS TO COMMUNIST CHINA AND COLLECT TAXPAYER MONEY ALL AT THE SAME TIME



Credit/source Small People Against Big Government

"GE is also moving its 115-year-old X-ray division from Waukesha, Wis., to Beijing. In addition to moving the headquarters, the company will invest $2 billion in China and train more than 65 engineers and create six research centers. This is the same GE that made $5.1 billion in the United States last year, but paid no taxes — the same company that employs more people overseas than it does in the United States." ~Jerry Anderson

WHY ISN'T GE LIABLE FOR SELLING FLAWED REACTORS? 


GE is really happy right now, because it does not need any product liability coverage for a product of theirs that failed 100% of the time. They pushed Japan to sign a law that got GE off scot free, for something they KNEW would fail. That law said that ALL liability for any nuclear accident goes to ONLY to the nuclear reactor owner, but none flows through to the manufacturer, in this case GE. 

But signing a fraudulent contract voids the contract, especially if one party KNOWS that they are committing fraud and/or deception. GE KNEW that reactor was defective and would fail. Engineers notified top brass of this fact. They quit rather than be part of installing any.

If you as a corporation sell a defective product, knowing it will fail and kill millions people, and then push the buyer to sign a waiver saying they can never sue you, isn't that false and misleading? Doesn't that create a fraudulent contract, which can be cancelled and wiped out, thus making the manufacturer open and liable for lawsuits? 

Theoretically, GE is open to lawsuits not only from Japan, but also every person harmed by the radiation… The global community of citizens just have to get a group of lawyers together to do a class action lawsuit, because this is the biggest legal case since the tobacco industry lawsuit. Basically, the tobacco industry did the same thing that the nuclear industry is doing; lied through their teeth, saying tobacco did not cause cancer. 

2014 UPDATE; LAWSUIT NOW INCLUDES GE


bo October 30, 2014  "The lawsuit now includes GE ! 

From fukuleaks -
'The lawsuit originally was just against TEPCO. Along with this news that the district court has upheld the suit so it can move forward, the cause now includes GE, Hitachi, Ebasco and Toshiba as defendants. The list of new defendants includes all the parties involved in the design and construction of the reactors at Fukushima Daiichi. Greenpeace had previously brought this issue up, that the designers and construction companies responsible for the failed plant should be held liable for the massive failure during the disaster.'

To review-

'The reactors for Units 1, 2, and 6 were supplied by General Electric, those for Units 3 and 5 by Toshiba, and Unit 4 by Hitachi. All six reactors were designed by General Electric. Architectural design for General Electric's units was done by Ebasco. All construction was done by Kajima.'

NUCLEAR INDUSTRY BASED ON LIES, DECEPTION AND COVER UPS

Where is the best place to go, when a radioactive plume from someplace like Fukushima is coming over the US? If you have the money and means, it is best to go to the Southern Hemisphere, as President Obama, Jeff Immelt and Aris Candris did just before the radioactive plume hit the US.

The nuclear industry knows all about the harm that radiation is doing but they are just like the tobacco industry.

NUCLEAR IS MOST EXPENSIVE POWER SOURCE


In the past, the nuclear industry promised free or cheap, clean, green nuclear energy. That has changed. Two new nuclear plants are being fast tracked in two states that have ZERO need for more power. After these two new plants are built, electricity rates will go UP for residents around these planets, not down.

The danger to surrounding communities will go up, not down. Their communities will become more toxic, not less. They may get 30 years worth of jobs, but the contamination and negative health effects will go on affecting their community for hundreds of thousands to millions of years or longer. 

Nuclear Power; EXPENSIVE, Dirty, Dangerous And Toxic; via A Green Road

Nuclear industry pressure to use massive corporate welfare taxpayer dollars on a 50 year old mature industry is driving these two new nuclear plants. No investors are willing to invest in NEW nuclear power plants, no matter what their design. 

NUCLEAR INDUSTRY IS NOW ONE GLOBAL MONOPOLY


The never ending search for profits at any cost is forcing GE, Hitachi and Toshiba to act as ONE organization. By working together, they get easier access to the taxpayer dollars that they need to artificially put nuclear power on life support. It takes many companies acting together GLOBALLY as one to make new nuclear plants happen, even in countries and places within the USA, where these plants are not wanted or needed. So where is the proof of this? 

"GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy, a partnership between General Electric (GE_) and Hitachi (HIT_), and Westinghouse Electric, a Toshiba unit…" 

“Westinghouse Electric Company LLC is owned by the Toshiba Group. The headquarters for the company are in the state of Pennsylvania.” 

“NEW YORK (TheStreet) — GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy, a partnership between General Electric (GE_) and Hitachi (HIT_), and Westinghouse Electric, a Toshiba unit are likely to benefit from the recently approved Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage Bill in India. 

“On Monday, the Indian Parliament approved the compensation bill for nuclear accidents subsequent to tougher provisions on supplier liability. This move would end the two-year nuclear ban on India, whose atomic energy market is estimated between $150 billion and $175 billion." 

The nuclear lobby also promotes nuclear energy via tentacles reaching deeply into the education sector. The only problem with this, is that it tends to squash or denigrate all other options, such as renewable energy, which the nuclear apologists call 'too expensive' or not feasible, despite clear evidence and examples of communities becoming self sufficient with 100% renewables in five years, once the goal is set. The nuclear and carbon fuel industry are also behind the efforts to discredit scientists finding links between climate change and carbon fuel burning.

Nuclear Energy As A Direct Cause Of Global Warming; via @AGreenRoad

“The MOU builds on the long-term collaboration of GEH and Warsaw UT on various workforce development initiatives. In 2010, GEH donated 10 of its GateCycle™ licenses (relating to a customized software package used to model nuclear steam cycles) to Warsaw UT to help train a new generation of engineers to operate Poland’s future nuclear power plants. Each May, GEH also sponsors an annual Nuclear Congress organized by Warsaw UT. Additionally, a number of students from both Warsaw UT and other institutions from across Poland held summer internships at GEH’s global headquarters in Wilmington, N.C.

“GEH, GE and Hitachi’s global nuclear alliance, has the experience, best practices and best technology, including the world’s safest reactor[1], to bring safe, reliable nuclear energy to Poland,” said Craig Ihrke, vice president of commercial operations for GEH. 

“This collaboration between GEH and Warsaw UT is the latest in a series of similar agreements that GEH has made with several Polish universities to help ensure that the country develops a deep domestic pool of nuclear engineers and skilled workers needed to build and operate future nuclear power plants. For example, GEH is working with Warsaw UT and other schools to enhance educational and training opportunities for a wide range of important positions, including: mechanical engineers, corrosion protection specialists, electrical engineers and chemical engineers. …”

GE AND NUCLEAR INDUSTRY IS THE US GOVERNMENT, US GOVERNMENT IS THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY


It is one thing to have a few corporations acting together to promote a particular point of view, but global corporations are now at the point where their power has concentrated so much, that they ARE the government, have most of the power and control most of the financial resources.

NUCLEAR INDUSTRY POETRY

For those inclined to more polite poetry, Or-Well has some poetry to share on this subject. 

or-well

I HAVE to do SOMETHING with that…
They knew they were special
because they were Official,
they knew they were different -
they said so -insistent!
They knew they were entitled
and the rest they belittled,
they knew god was on their side
so offered us to the devil,
they knew they were in charge
and said the rest must be meek rats,
they knew they had secrets
they kept under their sleek hats,
they knew they were right
in the dead hours of night,
and considerations of safety
were but retroactive and hasty,
they knew they would prevail
with ears closed to the kids' wails,
while we let them do it
attending to details,
then and there, here and now
Ship of Fools, tattered sails,
garbage scow in a storm
fasten life-vests and bail.
They knew, they knew,
what they wanted, at least:
all the seats at the table
at an endless feast,
scraps thrown to the beggars
who'd then be fed to the Beast
of their Will to Power
with reason and sanity
but spice to devour
and they'll lick the plates clean
right up to the last hour.
Oops, or-wells' dark side snuck in.
