crisis management

Corporate executives are guilty of securities fraud if they misrepresent the truth about their corporation's financial condition.

"Every crisis has three Vs: the victim, the villain and the vindicator. We want to know who to like, who to believe and who to hate. That's how the media tells its stories related to crises. A crisis is resolved when you muddy the rigid roles of these three types of characters or when you reverse the roles. So the goal of PR person is to enact that switch." - Eric Dezenhall

Eric Dezenhall believes that the best strategy is to rarely, if ever, admit guilt and to meet each accusation with a counter attack.

In the middle of a public relations crisis, companies pay consultants anywhere from $50,000 and up, depending on how long and how many people are deployed.

A pre-crisis preparation session costs at least $25,000.

Still, says Eric Dezenhall, who has represented such companies as Procter & Gamble, ExxonMobil, Eli Lilly and General Electric, "the amount of money spent on crisis management is a drop in the bucket compared to what you might lose."

Five days before filing for bankruptcy CEO Richard Severin Fuld Jr. assures investors that Lehman Brothers has $42 billion in liquidity.

"Our liquidity and balance sheet are strong." - Alan Schwartz, CEO of Bear Stearns 36 hours before seeking emergency funds for two failing hedge funds

Joseph Cassano of American International Group is "highly confident that we will have no realized losses" on the credit default swap portfolios less than three months before they posted more than $11 billion in losses.

"How does $42 billion vanish in five days. Did Lehman officers know of harbingers of doom they weren't sharing?" - Roger Parloff


"One article that appeared immediately after the shooting down of KAL Flight 007 accused Secretary of the Navy John Lehman of being "one particular culprit in the deaths of 269 over Sakhalin Island.

The Lehman design, titled "Horizontal Escalation" in defense circles, outlines a series of provocations against the USSR.

Lehman is quoted as saying, "He who gets the signal to fire first in the North Pacific will enjoy a tremendous tactical advantage.

This region . . . is most probably where we shall witness confrontation with the Soviet Union." - Mae Brussell


"What's worrisome and even more expensive, however, are the strategic missions now assigned to the greatly enlarged surface fleet.

Secretary of the Navy John F. Lehman is emphasizing the use of aircraft carriers and submarines to undertake offensive strikes in Soviet waters.

In a crisis, the Navy is to move close to Soviet shores, bottle up the Soviet fleet, sink the fleet and, using planes and missiles, destroy the Soviet fleet's logistical ''train'' deep in Soviet territory.

In addition, if Moscow makes a serious military move in an area where it has ''local superiority,'' our Navy plans to ferret out other Soviet ''blue water assets'' and obliterate them.

It's called ''horizontal escalation.'' - James A. Nathan

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality 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 system of philosophy 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 economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex 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 mass 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.
