Rusty Weiss's fully documented expose of CH2M Hillthe multinational that was awarded $2-billion in stimulus moneydragged something unexpected in with the tide: proof of President Barack Obama's Global Godfather.
Obama's Global Godfather is Canadian UN Poster Boy Maurice Strongemployed 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 exposé. "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 hereto help them think things through."
Compared to Communist China, Barack Obama would be a piece of cake.

Maurice Strong probably plans to be Obomba’s RIGHT hand MAN when he rules the world at the UN.....
Should a sliver of truth be found in this, then we have been overtaken. No president could undo such a web.

God can and will IF we PRAY and TRUST Him.
The Obama administration, and its Democrat enablers equal Corruption on a scale larger than we have ever seen.
And a Justice Department and almost half the Supreme Court in their pocket.
.................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. ...............
Unfortunately, these projects place this scam operation also into the Bush administration timeframe.
The US government loses so much to fraud, corruption, lobbying, lack of oversight, in spite of the thousands of pages of inconsequential garbage archived by the minions to cover their ass.
Called Channel two up here on the slopes, CH2MHILL is corrupt as they come. They pad government contracts and oil contracts with buckets of extra men, the saying goes, play Hide and Seek for 3 thousand a week.
Scum of the earth, no wonder they hang with Obama and the Dems.
As usual, if you want the real dirt, the real investigative journalism, look to the foreign press.
There are far too few Jack Cashills in America.

Is this the same CH2M HILL company that my college friend and I tried to get a summer job with-say it isn’t so but yet I think it is. We were first year engineering students and out traveling to get a summer associated job. We stopped in at CH2M Hill in Redding CA which I believe is their original home base to try to get on as field surveying aids because we heard the company was heavy into civil engineering jobs in California. We didn’t get the time of day from the company and moved on up to Oregon where we found summer employment. Over the years I have known the company had grown but not that headquarters had moved to good time Colorado. Now I read the company is really big stuff and with the likes of Maurice Strong no less. There is so much to know and so much not to like about this man along with Soros. I do believe that Obamas quest for world royalty is being largely enabled by these men. Also one has to think of why Obama has often pushed road projects. And I believe that the hijinks go even higher than these two USA sell outs even to the international bankers in Europe and even our own congress and courts including the SC.

Check out article, then comments # 2 through # 16.
The globalists’ web has been pushing us around since the Fed and it’s funny money were erected.
They were not happy with Bush, Jr. which is why they crashed the economy on him before he left and turned the media lose to be mad dogs on him while building up the Dems. They would not be happy with Perry or Newt either. They want Romney to run - that way they win either way in the race and their global power over the US is advanced.
Sometimes I think I was transported into the twilight zone a number of years ago. I find myself daily surrounded by texting and/or surfing zombies everywhere even in middle of parking lot traffic,crossing streets and even when stopped at red lights!
Zombies also lack short term and long term memories. Their entire universe is tightly circumscribed in a cocoon that surround them 24/7.
And many, if not most of them vote.
None of these people have a clue about Maurice Strong. He may be presently hiding out in China, but back in the 70s and 80s, he single handedly invented global warming, carbon credits and Al Gore, with the help of the UN, the greeny morons and abyssmally ignorant politicians worldwide.
So, in addition to being the invisible godfather of Hussein Obama, he is the Godfather of Gore and global warming, the EPA excesses of the last 40 years, and the arbitrary monumental oppression of governments worldwide.
Why is that missing from this thread?
Collective terminal amnesia?
When you have a couple of hours to spare, google everything you can find about Maurice Strong, and be amazed.
“God can”, is true enough, but a president is not God and if God did not spare Israel it seems presumptuous for a fallen away nation to get in front of the AC and pray for the restoration of capitalism, and our personal wealth, comforts and conveniences. Repentance is the game change with God, and it is no where in sight. God has been known to permit collapse, but as I said, no single president can undo such a web of covert fiscal warfare.
