[Oil] consumption is presently [i.e., 2006] growing 11 percent per year; doubling every 6.5 years. A crisis is inevitable by 2010 to 2015.

We believe that [the Petrodollar System] will begin breaking down around 2012 or shortly thereafter.

I never will call a pound sign (#) a hash tag, but I will tell you what I think about this
serious crisis Syria-iss Crisis.
Earlier this week, I was listening to talk radio about the Syria issue, and bouncing back and forth from the “conservative” station, 550 AM “KFYI” (home of Rush Limboob, Sean “I’m A Bad American” Hannity, and Mike “Straw Fer Brains” Broomhead) to the “progressive” station, 1480 AM “KARL” (home of Ed “Republicans Are Jugheads” Shultz, Randi “Republicans Are Idiots” Rhodes, and Thom “I’m A Very Reasonable Commie” Hartmann). It was all highly entertaining. Too bad there was no really significant truth to be found on either station.
After days of listening, I discovered that both stations were reporting their version of the “truth” pretty accurately: The NeoCons were saying that Putin had checkmated Obama and made him look foolish, but that the Liberals were spinning it as a brilliant foreign policy gambit played by Obama in gaining what he desired in the Syria issue (i.e., chemical weapons turned in without U.S. Military intervention necessary).
The Liberals (on this blog, also known as “Communists”) were claiming that Obama had achieved his goal without bloodshed, but the “jughead”, “idiot” Republicans were trying to spin it to make Obama seem as if he had weakly blundered into a self-created trap that the Russian, Putin, had cleverly used to his advantage.
As is often the case, there was more truth being expressed by the “Repugnantcan” talk radio clowns than by the “Dumb-O-Crat” talk radio clowns, but neither “team” (Rah!-Rah!) was telling their listeners the really true truth.
In fact, NEVER did I hear the words “Petrodollars” or “Federal Reserve” mentioned on either station; and only once did I hear the word “oil” spoken, and that was only because apparently a caller had brought up that subject with Thom “I’m A Very Reasonable Commie” Hartmann, and he responded to it, in his “reasonable”, “I don’t want to say anything TOO forcefully and confidently” manner. Unfortunately, I only caught the very tail end of that call, so I’m not sure what was said, other than that the caller must have suggested “oil” was playing some part in the whole Syria fiasco thang.
But the bottom line is that BOTH radio stations are lying to their listeners, by acts of commission and omission, and BOTH radio stations exist for one purpose and one purpose only: To deceive, and to divide and conquer the Americonned Sheeple with phony “Left/Right” paradigm propaganda.
You will NEVER learn the important truths by listening to NeoCon talk radio nor Commie talk radio; you will NEVER learn the important truths by watching NeoCon TV like Fox News nor Commie TV like MSNBC. If you want the important truths, you will need to seek out the independent, non-mainstream media sources.
Alright, let’s get ON this thing! (as Lightnin’ Hopkins might say)...
In my recent blog bit titled “The Dollar Is Nearing The End Of Its Life Span” (Or, “Don’t Leave My Monkey Alone”), I directed you to the wonderful MensaMonkey site and lots of y’all were left impressed and bug-eyed. My bloggin’ buddies CW Martin and Robin left excellent and inquisitive comments. If I understood Brother Martin’s analogies correctly, he was indirectly questioning some of the same things Robin was.
Many years ago, I learned about the Petrodollar – how it had enriched the International Bankers (creators of The Federal Reserve System) and how it had indirectly benefited the American People. I could vaguely recall a particularly good article explaining all this and I sought to locate it online. Problem: Was that article published in ‘The New American’ magazine or in ‘The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor’? (For years I subscribed to both.)
I began an online search, but before I got far (and long before I resolved my “Problem”), I came across a different, long, multi-part Internet article that I felt was as good as - and probably even better than - the article I was hunting for. So I’ve decided to link to the newly discovered article and a video that accompanies it.
But before I do that, let’s hear from Dr. Chuck Missler...
In 2006 - the year it was published - I read and publicly reviewed the book ‘PROPHECY 20/20’ by Dr. Chuck Missler.
On page 243 of that book, there is a section titled ‘THE IRANIAN OIL BOURSE’. Following is an excerpt:
The Iranian Oil Bourse was scheduled to commence operations on March 20, 2006, but has been postponed several times for a lack of readiness. This bourse would be a trading exchange whereby the nations of the world would then have the option of selling and purchasing their oil in euros rather than dollars. This bourse would directly compete with the two American-owned exchanges, The International Petroleum Exchange (IPE) in London, and the NYMEX (New York Mercantile Exchange).
This represents a direct threat to the supremacy of the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency. The ability to shift to nondollar reserves would create a major structural change in the global monetary environment and could usher in a traumatic effect on the US economy.
Numerous economists have expressed alarm about Iran’s ambitions, saying that “the impact of the Iran Oil Bourse on the American dollar – and US economy – could be worse than Iran launching a direct nuclear attack.” (Some pundits have even suggested that this could be an additional explanation for why this Islamic republic appears to be the US’s next target.)
Do you REALLY believe that all our military meddling in the Middle East for so many years has had something to do with “human rights”? If this country were so damned concerned about “human rights”, abortion (i.e., the murdering of the most innocent and helpless amongst us) would not be portrayed as a “Constitutional right”. [I better get off this topic before my head “LITERALLY” EXPLODES!]
But the Iranian Oil Bourse gives you plenty to contemplate when it comes to why the U.S. for so many years now has been playing up the idea that Iran is a threat to peace, as if there were any such thing as “peace” on Earth. (There will be peace, but not before our Holy King and Savior brings it with Him.)
The multi-part article I discovered while searching for the long lost Petrodollar article of years ago, is located on Jerry Robinson’s ‘Follow The Money’ website. Be forewarned that each part is very lengthy and extensively detailed; reading it will be a significant investment of your time, but you’ll find it highly educational.
If you’re not inclined to invest so much time in this topic now, I urge you to at least read Part 2 and pay special attention to the analogy featuring HAMBURGERS AND OPRAH WINFREY:
The Petrodollar System provides at least three immediate benefits to the United States:
It increases global demand for U.S. dollars.
It increases global demand for U.S. debt securities.
It gives the United States the ability to buy oil with a currency it can print at will.
A little further down, Jerry Robinson also employs an analogy using CARROTS, and that too you should definitely read.
Part 2 also included the following excellent 11-minute ‘Petrodollar 101’ video lesson. Any man who promotes the book 'THE CREATURE FROM JEKYLL ISLAND: A Second Look At The Federal Reserve' by G. Edward Griffin is a man worth listening to:
In summary, evidence suggests that the U.S. planned to invade Afghanistan even before the tragic events of 9/11. While the reasons are somewhat speculative, the weight of the evidence points to the Taliban’s obstruction in allowing Western oil companies to build a Trans-Afghanistan pipeline. Eleven years later, the U.S. military remains in Afghanistan while the Trans-Afghanistan pipeline is being constructed with completion plans set for 2017. Iran’s competing pipeline project will be completed by the end of 2014 and is catching the attention of China, Russia, India, and others. The U.S. cannot allow renegade regimes, like Iran, to dictate the flow of natural resources in this important region. Therefore, the U.S. government has inflicted punitive economic and political measures upon Iran in an effort to bring it into submission.
The Iraq and Afghanistan wars were both “resource wars” sold to the American public under false pretenses. America’s empire of 700+ military bases in 130+ nations serves as a global oil protection service, not a national military seeking to protect American citizens. Instead of protecting our nation’s borders, the U.S. military is used by the Washington elites to protect the petrodollar system. The foundations of the American empire are now crumbling as emerging nations are no longer willing to spend their lives and their new found wealth propping up the U.S. consumer. Nor do they have any desire to tolerate the belligerence of the U.S. war machine.
Like all failing empires, America will fall under its own weight as more nimble economies arise in its wake. America’s attempts at regional dominance of Central Asia will lead to further friction with Russia and/or China. This friction will provide the spark for yet another war.
