CASE 295 - DuPont
E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, commonly referred to as DuPont, is an American chemical company that was founded in July 1802 as a gunpowder mill by Eleuthère Irénée du Pont. DuPont was the world's third largest chemical company based on market capitalization and ninth based on revenue in 2009. Its stock price is a component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
In the 20th century, DuPont developed many polymers such as Vespel, neoprene, nylon, Corian, Teflon, Mylar, Kevlar, Zemdrain, M5 fiber, Nomex, Tyvek, Sorona and Lycra. DuPont developed Freon (chlorofluorocarbons) for the refrigerant industry and later, more environmentally friendly refrigerants. It developed synthetic pigments and paints including ChromaFlair.
DuPont's trademarked brands often become genericized. For instance, “neoprene” was originally intended to be a trademark, but quickly came into common usage.
DuPont got started selling gunpowder during the first world war. They played a crucial roll in the Manhattan project, producing plutonium in South Carolina. DuPont also provided the allies with nylon for WW2, they patented nylon in 1938 the same year the marijuana tax act was passed. Hemp fibers could have competed with nylon and cut into DuPont's profits.
and more recently some important people connected to DuPont have been dying. On December 9 John DuPont died in his prison cell
he might just be an old man who died of natural causes, but it seems sketchy.
What got me to check out DuPont was the mysterious death of John P. Wheeler an ex Air Force insider. there was a thread on here awhile ago that was saying his death was an attempt to cover up the real causes of the massive bird and fish kills in Arkansas. This guy had connections and knew things he was an important official during bush's administration. at 8:30pm on December 30 John Wheeler was seen in the Nemours building in Wilmington Delaware. He was seen leaving the building and in the valet parking of the DuPont hotel across the street. Here's the full time line http://www.delawareonline.com/article/20110108/NEWS01/101080343/Times-and-locations-in-John-P-Wheeler-III-case
The Nemours Building is part of DuPont's headquarters complex there is an underground tunnel connects it to the DuPont Building across the street which includes the DuPont hotel parking garage he was last seen in. Here's the building info http://www.emporis.com/application/?nav=building&lng=3&id=130539
So I was wondering what DuPont is up to that these two guys would end up dead and three days ago I saw this.
maybe these deaths are related to this acquisition in some way?
I don't know but the fact that DuPont is getting into the food business is no good The. I think DuPont is in a close competition with Monsanto for the evilest corporation in America.
