noticing a lot of talk in the media, in the US government and amongst our
crowd (gold/silver bugs) about the sky high price of oil and what we can do
about it. I am begging the friends of gold and silver to read chapters
29 and 30 of John Perkins book "The Secret History of the American
Empire" (www.johnperkins.org/paperback) where he very clearly explains
how the US Dollar was taken off the "gold standard" and put on the
"oil standard" implemented by Kissinger, Shultz and Cheney back in
Most of us now know (or at least have the suspicion) that the prices of most
commodities are rigged by computer programs run through the banking cabal and
orchestrated by the Federal Reserve New York office. OIL is no exception. It
is more than likely that oil is 100% controlled by a computer trading program
run by the banking cabal and friends inside the US Government. Just like gold
and silver, the oil supply/demand characteristics are not relevant to a
manipulated, false price that can be set and steered by a few digital entries
in a computer trading program. The US will continue to hide it's huge oil
reserves in "national parks", "nature preserves" and
"ecologically sensitive areas" as well as suppress any fuel
alternatives (such as the electric car or hydrogen from water) that would
circumvent the need for high priced oil until the US Dollar "oil
standard" is abandoned.
explains, the high price of oil and the requirement to trade oil in US
Dollars is essential to supporting a "strong dollar policy". GATA
has shown that this also includes the price suppression of gold and silver.
Perkins relates first hand knowledge that in the 1970's, with the help of the
UK, Israel and the Saudis, the US was able to orchestrate the formation of
OPEC and jack up the price of oil globally thus necessitating the need for
more and more US Dollars for the world to buy oil.
Today is no exception. With oil trading over $130 a barrel the world needs $4
Trillion dollars annually to facilitate these oil purchases. The most
ingenious part of the "oil standard" plan is that working with
"friendly" oil producing governments, the most of the oil profits
were funneled back into the United States through large US based
corporations. Today these oil profits are more likely to show up as "investments"
from Sovereign Wealth Funds to bail out the Western banks.
The long policy of the US to use other people’s scarce natural
resources before our own may have seemed brilliant to some but the blow-back
has turned the world against the USA .....a country that was founded on truth
and honesty but has built its power base upon lies and deception.
It is true what Chris Powell said at the "GATA Goes to Washington"
"THERE ARE NO FREELY TRADED MARKETS ANYMORE"
But I think a better question may be: "Since the invention of computer
trading programs, has there EVER been "freely traded" markets?!)
