1998 In February under the direction of
Richard Bruce Cheney
Halliburton makes a $7.7 billion purchase of Dresser Industries.
Dresser Industries, based
in Dallas, was nearly as big as Halliburton, with separate oilfield and
engineering divisions of its own.
"A win-win combination for both
companies' shareholders, customers, and employees. We went from being a
second-tier, second-rank energy-services incorporation to being the biggest on
Earth." - Richard Bruce Cheney
Halliburton buys Dresser Industries
near the top of the market, at a 16% premium.
One of first moves made
by Richard Bruce
Cheney after the deal closed was to cut 10,000 jobs.
Industries faced 66,000 asbestos claims at the
time of purchase.

"Companies like Halliburton that run big construction projects
thrive on cost overruns - the extra cash that they get from customers like the
Pentagon beyond what they bid to do the job. Beginning in 1998, Halliburton
started to estimate how much extra it would ultimately be paid in overruns,
reporting the figure as income on its statements. The accounting pick-me-up
boosted the company's bottom line by $100 million. Guess which accounting firm
audited Halliburton's cooked books? Arthur Andersen, of course." - Alan Maass,

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a new
philosophical ideology to which its author adheres. The author feels that the
falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace
unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done
purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish
to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance
occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious
beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the
founding of a mystery school aptly named The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason
which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no
church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to
develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit
of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that
has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the
author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in
America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site in no way condones
violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is
already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control
the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world
banking system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military
entertainment complex of America and is responsible for the collapse of morals,
the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global
ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does
not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have
declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior
corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction
of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to
the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction
and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
