Rusty Weiss's fully documented expose of CH2M Hill—the multinational that was awarded $2-billion in stimulus money—dragged something unexpected in with the tide: proof of President Barack Obama's Global Godfather.
Obama's Global Godfather is Canadian UN Poster Boy Maurice Strong—employed by CH2M Hill as chairman of its influential International Advisory Board.
Followers of the global poohbah money track have known since his arrival in the Oval Office that Obama's puppet strings were being pulled by George Soros. Now they can officially add Soros' one-time business partner in the failed Chinese Chery automobile project, Maurice Strong.
Taking in the scope of the combined power of Soros and Strong, it's no wonder that the puppet dances and gyrates on puppeteer strings while the Fundamental Transformation of America is closer with each passing day.
With those in the know still reeling from the shock of discovering that CH2M Hill was awarded more than three times as much funding as the now bankrupt Solyndra, George and Maurice the puppet masters remain off the radar screen.
In Weiss's The Case of CH2M Hill: $2 Billion in Crony Stimulation, he warns that of the companies involved in the Solyndra scandal, CH2M Hill "should be next on the House GOP radar, having used nearly $10 million in stimulus funding to design the elaborate Solyndra facility in Fremont, California."
Just for openers with their millions of dollars in pocket, "CH2M Hill clearly outdid themselves on the Solyndra project, building a facility the likes that had never been seen before in the heart of the Silicon Valley. The facility covers 300,000 square feet, ran a price tag of $733 million, and was equated by some to the Taj Mahal. Bloomberg News reported on some of the extravagant amenities..amenities which might surprise for a company using taxpayer funds to maintain operations.
"It wasn't just any factory. When it it was completed at an estimated cost of $733 million, including proceeds from a $535 million U.S. loan guarantee, it covered 300,000 square feet, the equivalent of five football fields. It had robots that whistled Disney tunes, spa-like showers with liquid-crystal displays of the water temperature, and glass-walled conference rooms.
"All on your dime."
"Why, having been awarded more than three times as much funding as Solyndra, has CH2M Hill escaped serious scrutiny," Weiss asks in his exposÃ©. "Perhaps it is the significant donations and lobbying efforts they have doled out, targeting key Democrats in charge of the stimulus, or the revolving door of employees and White House administrative positions that have allowed them to continue their dominance in procuring government funding."
Besides being a "consistent government favorite" for taxpayer money and the 60% of nearly $65,000 in campaign finances to Democrats, what is CH2M Hill's main claim to fame?
From Wikipedia: "CH2M Hill is an American-based global provider of engineering, construction, and operations services for corporations, nonprofits, and federal, state, and local governments. The firm is headquartered in Meridian, an unincorporated area of Douglas County, Colorado in the Denver-Aurora Metropolitan Area. The postal designation of nearby Englewood is commonly listed as the company's location in corporate filings and local news accounts. As of December 2010 CH2M Hill had 23,000 employees, and 2010 revenues totaled approximately $6.3 billion. The firm is employee-owned, with an internal stock market that operates buy/sell events quarterly."
These are the big boys of big business; big politics.
CH2M Hill was one of the prime contractors in Iraq, its job to oversee other on-site contractors. It was also the leading U.S. contractor in Sri Lanka after the tsunami. In the aftermath of Katrina-devastated New Orleans, it was one of the companies that landed the contract to build trailer parks.
CH2M Hill has also shown up in the weirdest of places. For example, when the controversial Maurice Strong-led Earth Council took flight from the Costa Rican government which had been pursuing the Earth Council for payment of U.S. $1.65 million for the wrongful sale of land it imprudently donated to the Council, the Earth Council files and folders landed with no fanfare, in CH2M Hill's Consumer Road Toronto office towers, where as far as is known, they remain to the present day.
The international political influence of CH2M Hill would have to be rated as monumental.
Strong, who hightailed it to China in the fall out from the United Nations Oil for Food scandal, and where he remains to this day, was described thus by Nicholas Sonntag, a Canadian who heads up the Beijing office of CH2M Hill: "They (China) are taking a big risk. They're determined to be the economic engine of the world. This is why Maurice Strong is here—to help them think things through."
Compared to Communist China, Barack Obama would be a piece of cake.
