TOYOTA SABOTAGED BY THE USA?

Image from Mytho88

In August 2009, at Fort Meade in Maryland, the Pentagon sponsored a war game which studied how nations might seek to cripple their rivals' economies. (Pentagon preps for economic warfare - Eamon Javers - POLITICO.com)

In 1941, the USA used economic warfare to provoke Japan into attacking it. (How U.S. Economic Warfare Provoked Japan's Attack on Pearl Harbor ...)

Wayne Madsen, at Online Journal, on 12 February 2020, reports that Obama is waging economic warfare on several fronts, including Japan

According to Wayne Madsen's sources (WMR):

1. Obama is using sabotage against Toyota.

2. Obama is angry that Japan wants US troops out of Okinawa in Japan.

3. US Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, who is linked to US company Caterpillar, has stated that all Toyoya owners should stop driving their vehicles.

4. LaHood has threatened Toyota with unspecified civil penalties.

5. LaHood is carrying out an operation to help General Motors and Ford.

6. The chief architects of the anti-Toyota campaign are Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and White House Chief of Staff Emanuel.

7. The media has worked with the Obama administration by hyping the safety issues with Toyota's vehicles.



8. The issue of sticky accelerator pedals arose in 2009 after a Lexus ES350 crashed.

There is a controversy over whether the crash was caused by the pedals or the floor mat.

Toyota does not make the pedal for its recalled vehicles.

A US company, called CTS, makes the pedals for Toyota, as well as for Ford and GM.

9. China's Jiangling Motors has complained about sticking pedals from CTS.

CTS has developed a reputation for faulty accelerator pedals.

The Obama government has not criticized CTS, which has supplied the same accelerator pedals it manufactures for Toyota and GM to the U.S. military.

10. The 'mat' problem occurs when a cheap substitute carpet is installed by a garage or a dealer.

11. Toyota is Japanese. The main shareholder in Isuzu is GM. Ford owns Mazda.

12. The CTS pedal used in Toyotas relies on an electronic pressure sensor.

These sensors can be affected by military 'transmissions' or signals from military equipment.

13. In 1995, Clinton authorized the spy agency NSA to spy on companies like Toyota.

George H W Bush used NSA to eavesdrop on negotiations between Japan’s NEC and Indonesia.

14. The Obama administration is also waging economic war on the 'PIGS' - Portugal, Italy, Greece, and Spain.

Authorized financial campaign against Venezuela.

1. Pedal details do not signify.

All parts suppliers are vetted by the Primary Corp who have life & death power over their suppliers. (Pater Familias, Corporation-Style.)

Whatever the pedal was doing, meant to be doing, or not doing, was Toyota's balliwack. In the USA, "vendors" (as such suppliers are referred) are usually staffed by throwaway employees at minimum wage with no benefits. Toyota -- like the others -- take their chances when they don't keep a tight relationship with their vendors.

Tough about what happened, but it's all Toyota's fault. Their sloppiness was not inflicted by outsiders.

2. The REAL story here is Official America's anti-industrial bias. What it's doing to Toyota (turning simple corporate sloth into a cause celebre) is something they've done to US corporations time and again.

Ask Ford Motor Co about the Pinto, the last car US workers could actually afford to buy new. After several high-speed rear-end collisions the Ford-Pinto-as-death-trap was embedded into folklore by the government and media. All a lie, the Pinto was a fine vehicle, the collisions were a fluke. Now all US cars are over-built and over-priced and the Government did it with lies and more lies.

3. In NO WAY does the US Gov protect US industry, surprising to discover. In 1973 the Nixon Regime was worried about Japan's ability to pay back loans to Wall Street, and got US taxpayer funding to find markets for Japanese goods all over the map. Despite Dick Nixon's famous exclamation, "I DON'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT THE YEN", Toyota and other Japanese companies benefitted enormously from the Executive Branch funding.

In the meanwhile, people seem to forget, the US worker himself, having funded his replacements, actually also funded his own redundancy.

As one of the redundants, I can tell you the news of Toyota reaping this whirlwind is no pleasure to watch. We might say, well, sorry, Noble Shogunite Scions, but thanks to Tricky Dick we were ahead of you in this screw job anyway.

So "welcome to the club" is as far as it's going to get.

Toyota owners must seek justice. The company has run afoul of the law and shown absolutely no regard for the safety of their customers.

Toyota led a dizzying array of misdirections and lies and despite all the recalls and public apologies, must answer for its actions in court.

If you own a Toyota, you have a right to be there. Please visit this site to learn more about the company's lies and denials spanning nearly a decade and what you can do as an owner: http://www.toyota-class-action-lawsuit.com/

I don't doubt it. However, it would be great to see where you obtained this kind of info. Do you have a link(s)?

Thanks.

Funnily enough, the further this story progressed the more I was struck by the possibility of espionage and sabotage. I'm glad I wasn't the only person to think so. And Frank, the fact that the US government isn't on the side of US corporations doesn't mean it's on Toyota's, nor that Toyota is at fault. Ain't none of it in ipso facto territory.

Otherwise, imagine if it was a spook campaign? Would the spooks employ a bloke to run around all the blogs telling every Toyota owner to sue? And might that fellow be so busy doing that, that he wouldn't even have time to read the article and nor would he realise that his comments stuck out like the dog's proverbials?

Sure looks like it, don't it?

I actually did a google search for this and I feel this is true! It's really scary to what lengths Americans have to go to get ahead. Fucking fat bastards and their lazyness. Lets just ruin other good economies too. Toyota is a great car company and now america is trying to turn it evil wtf... Japan is a better country then the USA anyways, with people not greedy, lazy, incompetent fuxs like the USA.

I'm also suspicious, may be sabotage at highest level. This is not isolated case, remember how US sabotage the Canada fighter projects..

I think so.they are trying to back step on WWII terms. They attacked us remember?to the victor goes the spoils.they should be grateful we didnt wipe them off the map.Now they want our bases removed, i dont think so. In my opinion we are entitled to the land they sit on. This is a silent message to japan you screw with us we screw with you.plain and simple, why do you think they cant seem to address the issues. Beautiful plan well executed !

the only reason japan is a great nation is because Pres. Roosevelt enacted their post war bill of rights.the same one he wrote up for us but but died before it could be established.if not for that the would be kamikaze buddies with N.korea.

wow! all the brainwashed yanks showing their true color, ignorance and blind lame patriotism. No substance, just the typical American bully-retardation. I am from neither camp and I can see without bias, not attaching my nation to this, but just assessing the facts. Japan is more an more resisting the Rothschild/Rockefeller scam banking, and that is the underlying force behind it all. Americans are dumb dupes falling for the bs propaganda serving in the hand of their owners, the JEW money changers, supporters of all world pedophilia.
