Technology Suppression: How it works, Who does it!

Technology Suppression: How it works, Who does it!

There are a few hundred people in the world who corporations, investment banks, cartels and venture capitalists can hire to stop a new technology from ever getting traction.

The magic number that triggers a hit on inventors, self-launched start-ups, research departments and others is called the SWOT Pivot. Analysts at the banks, cartels, and VC’s are constantly running metrics to look for any targets that rise into the SWOT Pivot “red zone”.

SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats and the “Pivot” is the point where the combined consideration of all of those factors jump over the into the region where the bank/cartel/Vc bottom line and global dominance may be affected.


When a little guy is about to cross the pivot, the big guys either buy them or kill them off. In South America the cartels that operate there, literally, kill you. In “civilized regions” it has more variables.

If you look and act like an Ivy League college alumni then you might get bought. Otherwise, not so much.

A typical cartel is the oil cartel consisting of a group topped by: ChevronTexaco, ExxonMobil, BP, Royal Dutch Shell, ConocoPhilips and Peabody Energy:

The oil cartel spends nearly a billion dollars per year on disclosed and undisclosed influence buying. It is generally considered to cost $100,000.00 to buy a senator. 89% of U.S. Senators are considered to have been “bought”.

The tactics they use to kill the technologies are the following:


The Sting

In an economy as sensitive as the one we are in today, federal investigators wanted to know if “secret society-type” groups were still sabotaging domestic companies, and their job and tax potential, for private gain.

If groups were involved in putting hits on companies, besides being creepy, it would violate a large number of federal laws. One of us was allowed access to a kind of ride-along for a sting operation to track this process.

Two start-up companies were legally created in major east coast and west coast tech-center locations. They had websites, business filings, staff and actual working technology. They sent out press releases, they mailed all of the usual VC and industry suspects.

The problem, or the opportunity, was that the technology, if delivered in high volume and adopted by the public would have completely changed who controlled the industry in each of the two cases. Each company addressed a problem in a different industry.

In each case, all of the Tier 1 venture capitalists wanted to know about each. Both companies soon showed up in insider Vc’s databases (which investigators had acquired memberships in) within 5 days with interesting codes and comments associated with them. Arrington exposed collusion between VC’s in the past but
the process is now much more digitized and managed.

As the investigation is still wrapping up, I am told I can say that the attention, intent and process with which these test companies were treated was “quite interesting.” I will release a longer story on this once the investigation is done.
