Lockheed, America’s Biggest Welfare Queen

Lockheed, America’s Biggest Welfare Queen gets more money from the federal government than many federal agencies


Last Year Lockheed got 32.5 Billion dollars from the US tax payers. Let that sink in. This is nearly as much as what the government allocates to the State Department. It is well more than what many other federal agencies get.
NPP: That’s Lockheed, I understand the parent holding company of Capita which co-manages e.g. Thetford’s Breckland Council in Norfolk, UK, which managed our last census.

Lockheed is the new East India Tea company. It is so big it might as well be a state. This corporation also benefits from the foreign aid to states like Israel which is where it jointly built its most expensive project to date the F-35 which has costs more than 1.5 Trillion dollars to produce. The fighter jet doesn’t even work as well as previous jets. There are a long list of problems with it. F-35b Fuel Tank redesign, problems with : Software delays, lightening protection, flight control problems, helmet display issues, avionics processors, thermal management systems, ejection seat assemblies, cockpit display electronics unit, seat survival kits, igniter-spark in the turbine engines, and even the on-board oxygen generating systems. (The oxygen problems  the pentagon reports as “pilot physiological events,”) There are problems with the tires, landing gear, in fact it the tailhook is not even compatible with US carriers. The Automatic Logistics Information System or ALIS doesn’t work. The F-35 has also been grounded for electrical problems.   You could not find a more creative way to waste $1,500,000,000,000 and counting. This doesn’t even include the cost per unit, or maintenance, that’s just the production cost. Oh and the stealth doesn’t work… on a stealth fighter jet. The stealth coating has even been found peeling off and the repair crews have been hospitalized from dealing with it. They were not allowed to tell the medics what it was made out of because of the secrecy. One thing it can do is something it is not supposed to do and that is spy on our allies. Are these problems just hiccups from the past that have been straightened out? No, in Jan of 2018 the pentagon reported that half of the F-35 fleet was grounded for tech problems!

Lockheed Martin, if you remember is who gave the seed money to the Weekly Standard which was the Neocon rag which pushed the lies about Iraq the most ferociously in order to offer a pretext for the 2003 invasion. William Kristol and Robert Kagan get the credit/blame for founding PNAC’s mouthpiece. However the funding for this Hasbara center piece  of Zionist war propaganda was Lockheed Martin.   Richard Cummings wrote in Lockheed Stock and two Smoking Barrels  How Bruce Jackson the VP of strategy and Planing for Lockheed, gave Bill Kristol the money. It should not surprise anyone that Bruce Jackson would finance PNAC’s media arm, when Jackson was the Executive Director for PNAC. Bruce is currently the President of the Project on Transitional Democracies. PTD has been meddling in Ukraine, and imagine my lack of shock at who comes to defend them. The best reporting on the Ukraine debacle was probably from Robert Perry of Consortium News, unfortunately he passed away this year.  Jackson, even though he admitted that he didn’t know anything about Iraq was selected to be chairmen for the Committee for the Liberation of Iraq. Since he didn’t know anything and was just taking a salary he deferred the actual decisions over to Randy Scheunemann.  Scheunemann was on the board of directors of PNAC and the treasurer of PTD. See a pattern there? Dick Cheney’s wife was on the Board of Lockheed. They signed up advisors to the board for the Committee for the Liberation of Iraq, such as Richard Perle and James Woolsey. Perle has too many lies to list and Woolsey was the Weekly Standard’s source for the lies about Anthrax which  wrongly attributed a connection between 9/11 hijackers and Iraq. There was more news about the non existent meeting in Prague between Al Qaeda and Iraq than the actual Al Qaeda summit in  Malaysia where the CIA observed future hijackers meeting with KSM. They then openly moved to and lived in the US without the CIA informing the FBI. More on that

Is the public up in arms about Lockheed literally being up in arms? Not really because the news rarely if ever breaks the print media barrier. Televised news is simply too tied up with industry to rattle the cages. It is very hard for them to have a story approved about the MIC or Big Pharma the two pillars of corporate news sponsorship. That is why I hope you will consider supporting this site and other non corporate news sites.

    Lockheed have a long history of selling dud aircraft,corruption and bribery.

    For instance the F104-G Starfighter commonly known as “the widowmaker”.

    see http://military.wikia.com/wiki/Lockheed_bribery_scandals

    The Lockheed bribery scandals encompassed a series of bribes and contributions made by officials of U.S. aerospace company Lockheed from the late 1950s to the 1970s in the process of negotiating the sale of aircraft.[1]

    The scandal caused considerable political controversy in West Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Japan. In the U.S. the scandal nearly led to the corporation’s downfall,

    West Germany’s Minister of Defence, Franz Josef Strauss, received at least $10 million for the purchase of 900 F-104G Starfighter’s in 1961. Investigations began in 1962 concerning the bribes from the United States to West Germany, but feel short because the paperwork was destroyed.

    Next, Lockheed admitted to bribing Japan’s Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka $3 million. Tanaka arrest came on July 27, 1976 and released on a $690,000 bond. Later Tanaka was sentenced to four years in prison and later died of a stroke in 1993.

    Netherlands Prince Bernhard received $1.1 million from Lockheed but denied any transactions took place. At the time of his death, interviews were watch and Bernhard admitted that he accepted money from Lockheed.

    And Saudi Arabia’s, Adan Khashoggi, accepted $106 million in commissions between 1970 and 1975.

    Daniel Haughton, Lockheed chairman of the board, and Carl Kotchian vice chairman and president resigned on February 13, 1976. In December of 1977, Jimmy Carter signed a bill stating it is illegal for American persons and entities to bribe foreign government officials.

    Then as now the overpriced F104 just as is the F35 was a miss sold crock of $hit whos primary role is to line the pockets of defence contractors at the public expense. Key to understanding just how deep this serial scam goes is the creation of interest bearing public debt to pay for dud military toys thus enriching the central bankers and enslaving the public to a protection racket..

    The gushing praise of this heap of junk we see in the British media during the sea trials on ‘big lizzy’ – an equally useless piece of overpriced metal – is nauseous.

    I don’t think the public are buying it, however, as they see living standards declining and the NHS and all other public services driven into the ground.

      Big Lizzy wouldn’t last ten minutes in a conflict with the Russians or Chinese. She would be cut in half by hypersonic Sunburn missiles – and the Navy knows that.

      She is however, a great big piece of floating real estate that is perfect for launching any old overpriced aircraft from, in resource wars such as Libya and Sierra Leone.

    War like any other racket, pays high dividends to the very few. The cost of operations is always transferred to the people who do not profit. – General Smedley Butler.

    Whilst Lockheed lined elite pockets all of these pilots died in a plane that never really engaged in combat.

    German Starfighter crashes

    A total of 298 German F-104 Starfighter were lost in accidents, losses on the ground and damaged beyond repair (including MAP F-104G serial number 62-12312)
    with the tragic death of 116 pilots (including 8 USAF pilots), but 171 pilots ejected safely, 8 pilots ejected twice.

      I used to be a bit of a geek in my youth, with an interest in military aircraft; often reading ‘Air Forces Monthly’.

      One recurring piece toward the back of the publication was ‘Attrition List’ IIRC. I was often staggered at the number of crashes of aircraft, most often during training exercises. I’m sure the number of aircraft and lives lost during ‘peacetime’ is much higher than during combat missions (for pilots anyhow – not the poor souls on the ground, facing the wrong end of a smart munition).

      Carrier-based take offs and landings are particularly hazardous.

      I think Edwin Starr had it damn right.

  5. Mr Dude says:

    One of Lockheed’s most commonly used adverts which you can see at many US airports, consists of a five pointed star next to the phrase: “We never forget who we are working for”

    Indeed.

  6. Mr Dude says:

    Mi6 ran the Dolphin Square operation, filming ministers abusing care home kids from behind one way mirrors.

    So next time you see some gormless fuckwit like Gavin Williamson, or the last muppet before him, banging the drums of war – as Williamson was recently in Ukraine “standing on the very spot where someone was killed by a sniper” then you can bet there will be a spook employed by a weapons company in the background with pictures of him up to no good with a child.

    That’s how it works.

    £110 billion for obsolete Trident replacement?

    Watch them try and flog it to us…

    Don’t forget uber slime ball James Comey was once CEO of Lockheed!
