US Embassy's “In Covanta We Trust Classic”


What Can Ireland Do For Covanta?


  Covanta's flags flapped in the wind, blue pollution swirled from barbeques, and Toni Soprano presided over a game of American salesmanship to promote the pollution of Dublin by DCC's proposed Poolbeg Incinerator operator, Covanta.

DCC signed a secret deal for the proposed incinerator to be run by apparent law breaker Covanta and has overseen July-4-Weekend threats or untruths or lies about the complete halt of US jobs and US investment in Ireland if the law breaker is subjected to Irish environmental law.

It could have been a July 4th event in the United States. But this was Dublin, Ireland, where Soprano is not yet the U.S. ambassador, and he was making history by staging an “In Covanta We Trust Classic” at the former HQ of the former British Empire, now the American HQ.

Mr Soprano was also hopeful of an increase in US investment in Ireland by real entrepreneurs like himself.  “The Italian-American companies think highly of Ireland with a fearful, supine citizenry, willing to do any work and to do things improperly It’s a great place to come and break balls.  You can do what you like.  NAMA rules.” said Toni Soprano.
Mr Rooney did not explain in public why Bertie's financial indiscretions with a Manchester businessman came into the public domain leading to his demise and did not say a word about Echelon operations at Dublin's Pembroke Road.  Soprano did not say in public that Covanta was also a misunderstood polluter with a record of lawbreaking in New Jersey, nor what Ireland can do for Covanta.

Mr Soprano described Mr Cowen as a “fine person” and a “friend” and  did not ask Mr Cowen in public how do you completely bankrupt a country and get away with it.

Mr Soprano's presence was described as a “great endorsement” by Joanne Richardson, CEO of the American Chamber of Commerce.  She felt it was a time to “celebrate and recognize” the very positive relationship between Ireland and New Jersey. The economic ties were “phenomenal” and especially important to Ireland at the moment, she said.  And there is absolutely no blackmail about Irish jobs.   
The CEO officially ignored private advice from Toni on how to turn a profit for law-breakers now that Ireland has a worldwide reputation for fear and crony-capitalism making it very easy to 'lobby' Mr Cowen after the successes with Mr Ahern.

Ireland would benefit from New Jerseys connections to the global economy, he added.  This is an innocent offer Mr Cowen can not refuse.  The Fianna Fail tribe's gotta put food on the table.

The group retired to watch a few entrepreneurial videos:
  • DVDs showing Covanta skimming the Gulf of Mexico.  Toxic sludge is exported to Covanta's Lake County incinerator, beside the Disneyland fools in Orlando.  Dublin, Ireland, can compete for that business.
  • The Gomorrah, "a masterclass of understated menace".  
  • Episodes of the Sopranos.

Employees from honest US companies shuffled about nervously, not wanting to be seen in the same hood as Covanta.  Nor the dodgy Dublin City Council officials massaging the so-called public process for the Poolbeg Incinerator.

Sources for dodgy-info used to "lobby" crooks in the FF racketeering Irish government:

Some 1,271 government organizations and 1,931 private companies work on programs related to counter terrorism, homeland security and intelligence in 10,000 locations across the United States.

An estimated 854,000 people, nearly 1 1/2 times as many people as live in Washington, D.C., hold top-secret security clearances.
