Honeywell International: Police Predators, Pantex, Pollution & Payola

Honeywell International is a Fortune 100 aviation, aerospace and defense conglomerate based in Morristown NJ.  They manufacture flight safety and landing systems as well as jet engines, including engines for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) such as those used in our omnipresent CIA’s MQ-9 Reaper (Predator B) drones.  They also manufacture the “snoop drone” T-Hawk Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) featured in the video links below and soon to be deployed by a Big Brother/DHS-funded police force near you, but Honeywell has no monopoly on the boom in converting the Skynet-like technology America uses to kill civilians abroad for use in controlling the citizenry at home:

Honeywell is in the consortium that runs the “Pantex Plant” near Amarillo TX that assembles all of the nuclear bombs in the U.S. arsenal.  Honeywell Federal Manufacturing & Technologies, successor to the defense products of AlliedSignal, operates the Kansas City Plant (where workers are currently on strike for safer working conditions) which produces and assembles 85 percent of the non-nuclear components of the bombs.  Honeywell also makes automation and control equipment used in home and industrial heating, and car products such as Prestone and FRAM.

The Center for Responsive Politics classifies Honeywell as a “Heavy Hitter” in the Washington political payola department.  Since 1999 they have made $9,762,160 in political contributions – 53% to Republicans, 47% to Democrats – including $54,060 to John McCain and $46,957 to Barack Obama.  In addition, since 1997 they have invested over $52 million lobbying both sides of the aisle.

In return for their bipartisan generosity, Honeywell has been “awarded” over $27 billion in government contracts since 2000, and over $2.5 billion last year alone.  And those fat federal contracts keep right on coming despite the fact that since 1995 Honeywell has had 40 cases of misconduct totaling $703.2 million documented by the POGO Federal Contractor Misconduct Database.  This makes Honeywell not only a “heavy hitter” but a “frequent offender”, as are most of our Pentagon profiteers – Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, Raytheon, et al.  Honeywell’s offenses include but are not limited to: mischarging the government, defective products, illegal storage of hazardous waste, unreported hazardous chemical releases, unauthorized chemical discharges, nuclear regulatory violations, labor law violations, patent infringement, copyright infringement, securities fraud, illegal monopolization, illegal exportation of chemicals, air quality violations, release of hazardous air pollutants, water quality violations, environmental quality violations, waste management violations, age discrimination, ADA and OSHA violations.

Honeywell ranks high not only in Federal Contractor Misconduct but also among Toxic Air Polluters:

And not included in any of the above is their historic role in making New York’s Onondaga Lake one of the most polluted bodies of water in the United States.  For their corporate culpability they agreed to pay $451 million, which for Honeywell International amounts to a penalty of less than 5 days’ revenue:
