The Watchtower Society owns 50% stock in Rand Cam – so much for its pacifist claims and prohibitions on political involvement. Among their products is an engine used in smart bombs.
“On December 6, 2001 we announced that a U.S. Navy contract (SBIR No1-144) has been awarded to Advanced Ceramics Research (prime contractor) and REGI U.S., Inc. to build and test a Naval 0.5 horsepower ceramic engine. The proposed engine is a four stroke Rand Cam engine utilizing continuous injection and combustion in a single combustion chamber. The engine will be of all ceramic construction to permit high temperature operation, without cooling, to effectively burn heavy oil. This new motor will be developed for powering the U.S. Navy’s new Smart War-fighter Array of Re-configurable Modules (SWARM) low cost unmanned aerial vehicle. On April 4, 2002 we announced that we signed an agreement to grant a license to Advanced Ceramics Research, Inc. (“ACR”) for the Rand Cam based motors for 10 H.P. or less for the SBIR No 1-144 Navy Contract for the remote piloted applications. We agreed that a 5 year contract will also be granted to ACR for the Rand Cam concept motors for the commercial and military rights for the applications developed under the Navy contract for 10 H.P or less.”
Is this new? Not really. Here’s another example from the randytv.com site, a report written to illustrate that although the Watchtower Society and Jehovah’s Witnesses condemn war or any such involvement in warfare, it was indeed one of their own devout ministers who was instrumental in the production of weapons of mass destruction specifically during WW2. Clarence Gilbert Taylor (JW) was founder of the (Taylorcraft) Corporation, and set up nine different companies in the mass production of warfare technology. In addition to the famous Taylorcrift Airplanes, just one of these companies – strangely called Gibson Refrigerator Company – contracted and manufactured the following:
1. Incendiary Bombs
2. Chemical Bombs
3. Chemical Bomb Clusters
4. Anti-Aircraft Guns
5. Navy Practice Bombs
6. Aircraft Parachute Flare Bombs
7. Bomb Shackles
8. Jettison Aircraft Fuel Tanks
9. Liberator Bomber Wing Flaps
10. Computer Parts for Large Caliber Anti-Aircraft Guns and Shipboard Guns
11. Engine Parts for Aircraft and Tanks
12. Bomb Housing Band Sets
13. Bomb Sight Lens Polishers
14. CG4A Bomber Gliders
15. Mustard Gas
There is extensive documentation at the site – and a claim (which I need to research for validity) that Dwight Eisenhower was brought up in the “Bible Students” – an early version of the Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Neutral in world affairs? Here’s just one more way they are not.
