Carlyle Group MD David Rubenstein wants America to bend over and let the Chinese buy it up
Typical...

WASHINGTON, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- Experts including World Bank's Managing Director Sri Mulyani Indrawati said on Tuesday that as the two engines of the global economy, China and the United States still have huge room to tap for closer economic and policy ties in a wide range of arenas.

David Rubenstein, co- founder and Managing Director of The Carlyle Group and several other experts held that the United States should make it easier for Chinese investors to do business to facilitate Chinese investments to America as the country.

"Ex politicians and government officials from all over the world are sought out to work with this Venture Capitalist group, chosen because this group specializes in highly politically sensitive companies. They need good inside information to put everything together. The “ Iron Triangle” is made up of political heavy weights as George H. Bush senior, James A. Baker III and well known defense experts like Ex Secretary of Defense Frank C. Carlucci III and Donald Rumsfeld Also, business Ivy league MBA’s from around the world. This group personifies the term, “Industrial Military Complex”

“The Iron Triangle” is a combination of big business, military and politics and the combination of these three things makes this group ungodly amounts of money. In 2002 they made $212 million in one month. The ultimate inside job, seemingly unique to America and how subtle corruption rakes in the cash. American presidents in the past have warned against such practices. Dwight D. Eisenhower warned America, but on it went untouched, while these companies raked in untold billions of dollars.

“The phrase military-industrial complex was first used on January 17, 1961, by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in his farewell address to the nation in what is called his Military Industrial Complex Speech:

“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

“We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.”

His children suggest that in an earlier draft of the speech, he referred to the “military-industrial-congressional complex”.

In 1987 the Carlyle Group was founded inside of the Carlyle Hotel in New York, by Steve Norris, a Marriott Hotel executive, and David Rubenstein a former aid for ex president, Jimmy Carter. An idea that was born in Washington D.C, to build a merchant bank, taking venture capital from extremely wealthy individuals from around the world and investing it. They made the decision to invest in heavily regulated government defense companies. In comes Frank Carlucci, straight from the Pentagon. A decision that proved to make the Carlyle Group billions. Two years later, the Gulf War hit.

After seeing huge profits, they understood hiring ex politicians was extremely beneficial. They figured they needed more talent from not only the United States, but also from around the world, hiring the ex Prime Minister of England, John Major along with other European and Asian government big shots. Prime Ministers from all over, with expertise in every aspect of politics were sought after in a big way.

Now that they had the expertise, they were able to predict and even influence trends in world politics, such as war. This is where Dwight D. Eisenhower had big problems against such companies, warning America against such practices. Government officials influenced by possible big profits. Frank Carlucci was good friends with ex military expert Collin Powell, mentoring him up through the ranks of the Carlyle group. Powell was sucked in as well. It is said that it’s hard to tell who is actually working for the Carlyle group at any given time, apparently a secretive bunch. You can bet recent and past U.S presidents and many other U.S officials have walked through their doors.

George H Bush senior and his son George W. Bush are big Carlyle fundraisers; they go around the Middle East with their hands out, collecting money for the group. The Bushes have made a fortune doing this. Probably making guarantees to Saudi Princes for cash. Others in Congress have spoken against this practice causing friction within. Carlyle has fought this, by using their money and clout to successfully lobby for more support in the way of defense spending, more disturbingly expensive weapons systems.

One weapons program in particular was canceled by then Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, because of backlash from Congress. The Carlyle group managed to side step that problem by taking the manufacturers of this gun system public, using the stock market to raise the money instead, a slick move saving the taxpayers a small fortune; undoubtedly using the business experts of the Carlyle group. See how important it is to have business MBA’s working for you? They still managed to make their big profits, and the military got their big guns."
