The German major corporation Siemens declared on Monday that it wants to buy the American Dresser-Rand corporation for 7.6 billion dollars. At the same time the Munich announced to say goodbye from business with home appliances and to sell this division to the Robert Bosch GmbH for euro 3 billion. This purchase and sale the media have generally reported.
What is barely told it is a major strategic reorientation of the group, a significant expansion of the oil and gas business and therefore enters Siemens vast into North American Fracking, in the exploitation of resources with questionable methods to the detriment of the environment.
Clearly, if the true background of the business is declared, then that's not good PR, finally, Fracking is highly controversial, bears environmental risks and potential health hazards, and some countries and regions, in their area of influence have prohibited Fracking by law.
Parsifal, September 23, 2014
The Acquisition of Dresser-Rand means, Siemens is one of the major players in the booming North American oil shale industry.
Develops, builds and sells Dresser-Rand but a wide range of products which can be used in the search, extraction and refining of oil and gas.
Siemens CEO Joe Kaeser on Monday:
'As a premium brand in the global infrastructure, Dresser-Rand is a perfect complement to the Siemens portfolio.
The combined activities will become a marquee-provider for the growing oil and gas market'.
Away with the filthy and boring kitchen appliances, into the lucrative Fracking Business.
Might but contribute the heavily polluting oil shale industry, according to a study by McKinsey 690 billion dollars to the US GDP, and perhaps by 2020 creates 1.7 million jobs.
It does not matter that the population has no clean drinking water and when you turn on the water toxic broth comes out.
But they should buy bottled water from the other big corporations such as Néstle.
Profit is in today's society everything and it fits wonderfully well together.
Are created problems, to be able to sell the solution.
Yes these unpleasant backgrounds the media would not tell.
They decline to press officers and PR agents of the corporations.
Siemens would not build on sand…
I can imagine with the entrance to the Fracking Business is Siemens not only in North employed in America but also in Europe, and, of course, particular in Germany.
It also explains why hardly any resistance against the sanctions against Russia in the German economy is heard.
It seems to me anyway, as if the crisis in the Ukraine by the West, and especially Washington was instigated to make Fracking presentable, under the pretext of the energy-independence from Russia.
The gas and oil which is promoted with this ecocide-method must flow somewhere.
The stupid Europeans should buy it.
So are portrayed Russia, Putin, and thus GazProm as something very evil.
Doing so, the media have delivered very effective smear campaigns and it explains well the hysteria and the Russia-Bashing.
It comes handy that those who are against Fracking are pro Putin, for the dependence on Russian Gas.
Is even the grotesque claim that Russia is behind the European Anti-Fracking movement.
This allegation uttered the upper warmonger and upper liar Anders Fogh Hatemussen, the Secretary General of the Western War Alliance NATO.
Russia engaged in environmental organizations in the fight against Fracking, 'to maintain the European dependence on Russian import-gas', he warned in a speech in London in June.
The upper lunatic spoke of a 'sophisticated information and disinformation-operation' of the Russians but voiced no details.
Environmental associations have reacted with scorn and indignation on Hatemussens utterances.
'The idea that we are supposed to be Putin's puppets is so grotesque that you ask yourself, what things they smoke in the NATO headquarters',
said a Greenpeace spokesman.
Russia's Minister of the environment Sergeij Donskoy rejected Hatemussens remarks on his Facebook page as laughable.
The NATO Secretary-General should change his advisors the next time not to make himself again a mockery of experts.
As with all conflicts and wars, it is about the control of the energy, so, who supplies gas and oil to the world markets.
Only media consuming simpletons believe it's about human rights, democracy and the so called war against terror.
The terrorists are created as villains, so that one has a reason to militarily intervene in the oil-rich countries.
As I said elsewhere, would be the main resources of the Arab countries and Iran only dates and pistachios, there were no wars in the Middle East, and no hog cared about these countries.
Now, as we talk about war and war profiteers, in 1998, Dresser Industries merged with Halliburton Industries, YES, exactly, the corporation was headed from 1995 to 2000 by Dick Cheney, the chief of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) from 1987 to 1989, U.S. Secretary of defense from 1989 to 1993, then later US Vice-President from 2001 to 2009 and passionate supporter of the war against Iraq, the Initiator of 9/11 and so the war against Terror, the NSA spying and torture methods.
But it goes further, a Halliburton associate is Kellogg Brown Root (KBR), permanently supplied with lucrative billion-orders by the US army in all the wars since the Bosnia war, until the war against Afghanistan and Iraq.
Prescott Bush (Grandfather of Bush), who collaborated with the Nazis and financed with his Bank, was a Director of Dresser Industries and his son (father Bush), the former President George H. Bush, worked for Dresser Industries from 1948 to 1951, before he founded the Zapata Corporation, a front-company for the CIA.
The Bay of Pigs Invasion of Cuba by the CIA had the name 'Zapata-Operation'.
George H. Bush was then head of the CIA, later Vice-President and President.
His son George W. Bush was President, and made the second war against Iraq.
Oil and war are always together and is so profitable !
In February 2000, the 51% shares of Halliburton were sold at Dresser to Ingersoll Rand and the result was then Dresser-Rand.
In August 2004, bought the investment firm First Reserve Corporation Dresser-Rand for USD 1.2 billion.
Less than a year later, in August 2005, the First Reserve brought the Dresser-Rand Group to the stock market and the shares were sold for 21 dollars per unit.
Now Siemens wants to buy these for 83 dollars per share. So much for the history of Dresser-Rand.
Siemens-Hydraulic Fracking in North America includes Canada.
Canada is a pioneer what Fracking concerns.
The Canadianterritories British ColumbiaandAlbertaareparticularly affected fromFracking. There areDocumentariesas'BurningWater'or 'FracturedLand'on the impactand destructionof Fracking.
Now, as we know what this billion acquisition by Siemens is really about, all of the environmental organizations such as Greenpeace, to hold in the future the Anti-Fracking demonstrations in front of the headquarters of Siemens in Munich.

RUSSIA AND CHINA THE NEW DOMINANT FORCE?? (image by YouTube)
Obama's September 24 speech at the UN is the most absurd thing I have heard in my entire life. It is absolutely amazing that the president of the United States would stand before the entire world and tell what everyone knows are blatant lies while simultaneously demonstrating Washington's double standards and belief that Washington alone, because the US is exceptional and indispensable, has the right to violate all law.
It is even more amazing that every person present did not get up and walk out of the assembly.
The diplomats of the world actually sat there and listened to blatant lies from the world's worst terrorist. They even clapped their approval.
The rest of the speech was just utter bullshit: "We stand at a crossroads," "signposts of progress," "reduced chance of war between major powers," "hundreds of millions lifted from poverty," and while ebola ravages Africa "we've learned how to cure disease and harness the power of the wind and the sun." We are now God. "We" is comprised of the "exceptional people" -- Americans. No one else counts. "We" are it.
It is impossible to pick the most absurd statement in Obama's speech or the most outrageous lie. Is it this one? "Russian aggression in Europe recalls the days when large nations trampled small ones in pursuit of territorial ambition."
Or is it this one?
"After the people of Ukraine mobilized popular protests and calls for reform, their corrupt president fled. Against the will of the government in Kiev, Crimea was annexed. Russia poured arms into eastern Ukraine, fueling violent separatists and a conflict that has killed thousands. When a civilian airliner was shot down from areas that these proxies controlled, they refused to allow access to the crash for days. When Ukraine started to reassert control over its territory, Russia gave up the pretense of merely supporting the separatists, and moved troops across the border."
The entire world knows that Washington overthrew the elected Ukrainian government, that Washington refuses to release its satellite photos of the destruction of the Malaysian airliner, that Ukraine refuses to release its air traffic control instructions to the airliner, that Washington has prevented a real investigation of the airliner's destruction, that European experts on the scene have testified that both sides of the airliner's cockpit demonstrate machine gun fire, an indication that the airliner was shot down by the Ukrainian jets that were following it. Indeed, there has been no explanation why Ukrainian jets were close on the heels of an airliner directed by Ukrainian air traffic control.
The entire world knows that if Russia had territorial ambitions, when the Russian military defeated the American trained and supplied Georgian army that attacked South Ossetia, Russia would have kept Georgia and reincorporated it within Russia where it resided for centuries.
Notice that it is not aggression when Washington bombs and invades seven countries in 13 years without a declaration of war. Aggression occurs when Russia accepts the petition of Crimeans who voted 97 percent in favor of reuniting with Russia where Crimea resided for centuries before Khrushchev attached it to the Soviet Socialist Republic of Ukraine in 1954 when Ukraine and Russia were part of the same country.
And the entire world knows that, as the separatist leader of the Donetsk Republic said, "If Russian military units were fighting with us, the news would not be the fall of Mariupol but the fall of Kiev and Lviv."
Which is "the cancer of violent extremism" -- ISIS which cut off the heads of four journalists, or Washington which has bombed seven countries in the 21st century murdering hundreds of thousands of civilians and displacing millions?
Who is the worst terrorist -- ISIS, a group that is redrawing the artificial boundaries created by British and French colonialists, or Washington with its Wolfowitz Doctrine, the basis of US foreign policy, which declares Washington's dominant objective to be US hegemony over the world?
ISIS is the creation of Washington. ISIS consists of the jihadists Washington used to overthrow Gaddafi in Libya and then sent to Syria to overthrow Assad. If ISIS is a "network of death," a "brand of evil" with which negotiation is impossible as Obama declares, it is a network of death created by the Obama regime itself. If ISIS poses the threat that Obama claims, how can the regime that created the threat be credible in leading the fight against it?
Obama never mentioned in his speech the central problem that the world faces. That problem is Washington's inability to accept the existence of strong independent countries such as Russia and China. The neoconservative Wolfowitz Doctrine commits the United States to maintaining its status as the sole Unipower. This task requires Washington "to prevent any hostile power from dominating a region whose resources would, under consolidated control, be sufficient to generate global power." A "hostile power" is any country that has sufficient power or influence to be able to limit Washington's exercise of power.
The Wolfowitz Doctrine explicitly targets Russia: "Our first objective is to prevent the re-emergence of a new rival, either on the territory of the former Soviet Union or elsewhere." A "rival" is defined as any country capable of defending its interests or those of allies against Washington's hegemony.

Ruslana Lyschytschko, known as the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2004 in Istanbul, is a Ukrainian singer who is also politically engaged, and showed off as a symbolic figure of the orange Revolution in 2004, and during the Euromaidan 2013/2014. The Western media and politicians celebrate her as the heroine of the uprising against the government of Yanukovych:
Ruslana reading out an official resolution of Euromaidan November 29, 2013
Then, she was, by the coup Regime in Kiev used as a showcase for the 'Ukrainian Revolution' and was actively involved to convince the high-level representatives of the EU and the USA to impose sanctions against Russia and specifically against President Putin. For this commitment, Ruslana was honored with numerous international awards. Among other things, she was awarded by Michelle Obama at the International Woman of Courage Award at the 'Women in the World Summit' in New York.
From the Atlantic Council in Washington, D.C., she received the 'Distinguished Humanitarian Leadership Award'.
Parsifal, September 24, 2014
Henri Malosse with Ruslana and José Manuel Barroso, January 2014
José Manuel Barroso received her in Brussels and she was also there passed around as a heroine.
Clearly, such a person is also a UNESCO Ambassador against human trafficking has warned of the consequences of 'Global Warming' and organized various goodwill projects, which were supported in 2009 by the German Embassy in Kiev.
There is no better NWO-doll to embody the Western pro-Ukrainian and anti-Russian policy.
Suddenly everything is different, because after a visit to the Eastern Ukraine and the Donbass Region, she said, were 'opened my eyes'. At a press conference she made the amazing statement, her support of the policy of the Ukrainian government was wrong !
'I came to Donetsk and saw something that I did not expect to see.
It has literally blown up my head.
There are falling grenades on our people!'
said the outraged Ruslana.
'It is necessary and just - immediately must be a ceasefire, the end of the war and of the blood shedding.
And if the politicians think differently, then it means there is something fishy going on, then are dirty games propelled'
According to Russia need to go Ukrainian journalists to the front to find out what is true and what is false, and it implies that the Ukrainian media not reports what really happens in Donbass, namely, that the Regime's makes war against its own population.
'So if you are feeling brave, then you come with me next time',
invited the singer a reporter from Kiev.
'Then you will be able to see everything and understand me'
She reported during the press conference that was fired at the car in which she was at the road together with Alexander Zaharchenko, the Prime Minister of the people's Republic of Donetsk.
'Who has shot and at whom?
Who's bullets were this?
It was impossible to figure out.
But it is quite clear we shoot on our own people.
There I was the first of which has declared loud, there is no civil war in the Ukraine.
I was so wrong',
The Regime in Kiev namely denies, it is a civil war and denies that the people in Eastern Ukraine want not to be governed by the fascists.
Kiev portrays the situation as there are Russians and Russia would support fighters there, and against the will of the population would push through a separation of the Ukraine with violence.
It would be an invasion of Russia, to conquer the Eastern Ukraine.
Ruslana then told the journalists that she would be disappointed by the Ukrainian 'President' Petro Poroshenko.
She said she would have been part at the demonstration in front of the seat of the President in Kiev on August, 28.
The protest was organized by relatives and friends of the Ukrainian soldiers who were surrounded in Ilovaisk.
The soldiers were left in the lurch from the leadership. The singer was shocked and angry that none of Poroschenkos people came out and spoke with the protesters.
'One must work with the people, talk with them, explain the own position.
And let me say this shocking sentence, I was not listened to by Poroshenko, as I stood in front of the seat of the President.
But when I arrived in Donbass it was Zaharchenko who heard me and listened to me',
The coup Regime in Kiev and its supporters in the West have used Ruslana as a useful tool and a figurehead and also did not mind to be used.
Like a heroine who struggles for 'freedom' and 'democracy' she was used, hyped and treated as a VIP.
Now where she has seen with own eyes the location in Donbass, and practices criticism of the policy of Kiev, and thus also of the West, she will be ignored.
Has the western media lost any word about her press conference at September, 7. ?
Who the shows a differentiated picture about what is happening in the Ukraine, does not fit into the one-sided reporting and is kept under wraps.
Russia and Putin are the evil ones, these bogeymen must be maintained.
The western puppets in Kiev are the good and the bloody war against the population in Eastern Ukraine is completely fine.
The people of Kiev, and generally in the Western Ukraine are unendingly misinformed and instigated against Russia and everything Russian.
This 'opening of the eyes', which Ruslana personally experienced, is possible only to a minority of Ukrainians.
Why ? Because ALL Ukrainian media, Radio and TV stations are owned by multi-billion dollar oligarchs.
The company Khoroshkovsky/Firtash includes channels inter, NTN, inter+, K1, EnterMusic, Enter-Film, K2, Mega (former Megasport) and MTV Ukraine.
The TV channel 'Ukraine', belongs to the Ukrainian richest man #1 Rinat Akhmetov.
Akhmetov also owns the TV channel 'Football', 'Ninotchka', 'UFO TV', 'Football+', 'Donbass'.
Victor Pinchuk's channels are the 'New channel', 'STB', 'ICTV', 'M1' and' Q-TV'.
In 2010 Kolomoisky bought the channels '1+1', 'Kino' (now channel '2+2'), 'TET' and 'the city'.
Jaycanuck controls the state TV 'First National'.
'Channel 5' is owned by Poroshenko.
A 'President' with his own TV channel… and here in the West people were so excited about Berlusconi because of his media power.
What in the Ukraine is happening is not 'democratization', but a seizure of power of the oligarchs and declaration of war on the population, so that they can loot and sell the country.
The West will tolerate, as long as a 'westward course' is driven and the Ukraine also opens for the NATO-warmonger and for the predatory capitalism.
Falling by the wayside is the mass of the Ukrainians, kept in the dark, impoverished and exploited. I hope the population soon realizes the theft, the lies and the fraud and makes a 'counter-revolution'.
Also we need tobe clear that we in EuropeandNorth Americalife in the darkest of censorshipunder aNorth AmericanDefacto-Terror-Regime.
