Barbarians & Fascists Page

A barbarian thrives on raping and pillaging, on despoilment of society and the environment, with the intention of making the world more of a mess than it is already in. A barbarian is an uncivilized or uncultured person, from the Latin and Ancient Greek terms originally applied to any foreigner. In idiomatic or figurative usage, the term 'barbarian' may also be an individual who is brutal, cruel, warlike, insensitive.

“Anyone can be a barbarian; it requires a terrible effort to remain a civilized man.”
— Leonard Sidney Woolf [1880-1969]

“Barbarism is the natural state of mankind. Civilization is unnatural. It is a whim of circumstance.
And barbarism must always ultimately triumph.” (in "Beyond The Black River")
Robert E. Howard [1906-36], creator of Conan The Cimmerian

Barbarian topic at Wikipedia

Fascism is a radical, authoritarian nationalist political ideology. Neo-fascism usually includes nationalism,
anti-immigration policies, or - where relevant - nativism, anti-communism, and opposition to the parliamentary
system and to liberal democracy.

“Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.”
Benito Mussolini [1883-1945]

the 'fasces' is a bundle of rods in combination with a war axe    Illustration of the principle of 'fasces': the bundle of rods tied together with the war axe was carried by civic magistrates in Ancient Roman times. The rods were used to mete out punishment unless the axe was needed to execute the criminal. The premise used by fascism is that the individual rods are easy to break (as are individual persons) but unified and with the threat of severe punishment from the state, the group then becomes mighty.

At some point, International Paper, Occidental Petroleum, Yahoo!, and Yelp quit, while A.O.L., eBay, and Expedia remain members.

It took until September 2014 for Google, Inc. chairman Eric Schmidt to declare that their controversial decision to fund A.L.E.C. was 'a mistake';
he said that A.L.E.C. is spreading lies about global warming and 'making the world a much worse place'.

'Bain of Our Existence' weblog from Campaign for America's Future

Bain liquidated Key Airlines in 1984-85 by unlawfully suppressing the pilots' union.

Bain Capital made $34 million, 34 times its 1986 investment, in mobile medical equipment manufacturer Calumet Coach. (Calumet was purchased
in 2001 by A.K. Specialty Vehicles, which is now part of Oshkosh Specialty Vehicles. {ticker: OSK}.

Bain Capital brokered a merger for Stage Stores in 1988, knowing that the Milken junk bonds were bogus;
Bain's $10M investment gave $175M profit by 1997; Stage Stores filed bankruptcy in 2000. {ticker: SSI}

Bain Capital purchased the Damon International medical lab in 1989; company went public in 1991, then was sold to Corning in 1993. Romney hired Joseph Isola as Damon's president & CEO in January 1990; Isola pled nolo contendere in July 2000 to federal charges of conspiracy to defraud Medicare. Romney has said at various times that: he knew nothing of the investigation; that he stopped the illegal practices; that he was the whistleblower to the Feds; and-or that he stopped the activity without notifying authorities. Multiple-choice reality?

Bain Capital made $55 million, 16 times its 1990 investment, from the Gartner Group {now Gartner, Inc.}.

In 1991, Bain Capital's Bank of New England investment was failing so CEO Mitt Romney got the F.D.I.C. to agree to a $10M write-off (while Bain execs collected fat bonuses).

In 1992, Bain Capital purchased Duane Reade, a chain of family-owned New York City pharmacies. In 1996, Bain Capital hired Anthony Cuti to serve as Duane Reade's CEO, and shortly thereafter sold the chain to another buyout firm. The company was twice fined for selling expired non-prescription drugs, baby formula, and other products. A new owner in 2005 quickly fired Cuti, who was sentenced in August 2011 to three years in prison for falsely inflating Duane Reade's income and misleading investors.
The Walgreens chain bought Duane Reade for $623 million in April 2010.

Bain Capital took over Ampad (American Pad & Paper) for $5M in 1992; laid off 200 union workers in 1994 and hired them back at reduced wages; the union struck, Bain closed the plant, and then walked away with $100M in profits.

In 1993, Bain Capital purchased the G.S. Industries steel plant in Kansas City, Missouri for $8.3M; in 1994, G.S.I. borrowed $125M to pay off debt and modernize and to pay Bain Capital execs $36M; G.S.I. went bankrupt and the plant closed; the P.B.G.C. (Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation) government agency covered $44M in G.S.I. pension losses in August 2005.

Bain Capital (initial investment $30M) and Goldman Sachs bought Baxter International in 1994 and renamed it Dade International; Dade bought a chemical division from Dupont in 1996 and Behring Diagnotics in 1997; failing to get a decent buyout offer in 1999, Dade management took out loans to buy out half the stockholders (the Bain half) with $242 million to Bain and $121 million to Goldman Sachs and $55 million to top Dade executives, for a total payout of $420 million; in all, the company racked up $1.5B in debt; Bain took $100M in fees and $242M in profits; Dade filed bankruptcy in 2002, 1700 U.S. workers lost their jobs; Dade was sold in 2007 to German conglomerate Siemens for $7B.

In 1998, Domino's Pizza co-founder & sole owner Tom Monaghan sold 93 percent of the company to Bain Capital for $1.1B; Bain added $1.5B in debt, and took away five times their investment. The pizza company is thriving, but has assets of only $425M and long-term debt of $1.57B, which computes to $23.64 negative book value per share.

In 2006, Bain Capital formed Sensata Technologies in Freeport, Illinois to develop, manufacture & market sensors and controls for major auto manufacturers such as Ford and General Motors. Despite rising profits, the company has plans to shut down the factory in November; American workers were made to train their Chinese replacements, who were flown to Illinois by the company. The American workers being outsourced at Sensata have tried for months to meet with candidate Mitt Romney, many even traveling to Florida for the Republican Party's convention, to ask Romney to show up in Illinois and help save their jobs. No help from Romney, nor even a reply. The latest move by the workers is to camp outside the Sensata factory for a very visible protest toward keeping these jobs in the U.S.A., including blocking the trucks that arrive to haul the equipment to China.

September 2007: Leveraged buyout and partial sell-off of the Clear Channel Communications radio network by Bain Capital and Thomas H. Lee Partners. Company took the name 'I Heart Media, Inc.' based on the success of the 'I Heart Radio' music-on-smartphone app; filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy in March 2018 to deal with $10B in debt remaining from the leveraged buyout.

To what degree the attention on Bain Capitol helped defeat the Romney-Ryan ticket in 2012 is subject to conjecture; in any case, Mitt Romney lost
all of his various home states, and Paul Ryan did not even carry his home town of Janesville, Wisconsin.

Goldman Sachs, and JPMorganChase.

Aside from Caterpillar management's giving themselves raises and cutting union members' wages and outsourcing jobs overseas and to 'right-to-low-wages'

in U.S. taxes between 2000 & 2012. In early March 2017, federal agents served search warrants at Caterpillar offices in Peoria, East Peoria, and Morton, Illinois

This so-called 'think tank' delivers opinions intended to cause the Democratic Party to move to the right.

Third Way's website lists 29 trustees: eighteen are investment bankers (62%), five are CEOs, two are lobbyists, two are activists, two are 'other'.

Following the rise of the 'We Are The 99%' Occupy Movement in late 2011, documentary filmmaker Robert Greenwald

hedge fund CEO Robert Mercer of Long Island, NY
Mercer's company Renaissance Technologies [est. 1982] has been using sophisticated financial maneuvers to lower the amount that its investors paid in taxes to the Internal Revenue Service – totalling more than $6 billion over 14 years. Mercer is the third-most generous Republican donor in the 2014 mid-term election cycle, cutting checks for a total of $37 million in the past six years, supporting pro-life candidates and those who deny man-made global warming. Mercer is behind secret dark money funding to remove Congressman Peter de Fazio and Senator Jeff Merkley, both Oregon Democrats. Mercer recently had a $2 million HO-gauge train layout built in the basement of his mansion in Long Island, New York, then filed suit that the builder overcharged him.

The reclusive Mercer is the source of the secret dark money that quickly backed TEA-bagger U.S. Senator Ted Cruz's 2016 campaign
for the White House, then switched to front-runner Donald Trump.

Trumping Democracy 2017 documentary film by Thomas Huchon  "In the darkness of the web, democracy was trumped by data." • Explosive documentary that follows the money in the 2016 election cycle to the elusive billionaire Robert Mercer, who bought Breitbart News and funded the effort while inserting Steve Bannon into the presidential campaign as its manager. Mercer-owned company Cambridge Analytica used data of millions of Americans – acquired from Facebook, Google, banks, credit companies, social security, and more – and tactics honed during the U.K.'s Brexit campaign to identify voters deemed 'most neurotic or worried', whom they believed could swing for Trump. In the days before the election, using the little-known Facebook feature called 'dark posts', Cambridge Analytica deployed highly manipulative & personalized messages seen only one time by the user before disappearing.
