Chris Martenson: Iraq Crisis-$150 to $200 Oil Might Seem Cheap!

  • Iraq Crisis-$150 to $200 Oil Might Seem Cheap-Chris Martenson! 
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    Chris Martenson is an economic researcher and futurist who produced a popular video seminar called “Crash Course.”   Back in early 2008, he explained the “interconnected forces in the economy, energy and the environment.”  Now, he has produced a new “Accelerated Crash Course,” and this theme is playing out in places like Iraq.  Martenson says, “If you want to understand what is going on in Iraq, you have to understand what is going on with energy in this part of the game. . . .The U.S. media goes out of its way to pretend this is just some random thing that happened.  A bunch of crazy people came out of Syria and are causing trouble. . . . The post reconstruction effort in Iraq, if it wasn’t designed to fail, it was the biggest bungling job of all of history.  We dismantled key institutions, we dismantled their army and left the country a hollowed out shell.  Guess what, now that’s breaking.”  Martenson goes on to point out, “Here’s why it affects us.  Oil and oil infrastructure is fragile stuff.  A refinery is thousands of moving parts and miles of tubes and pipes.  One mortar lobbed in there and that whole refinery gets shut down. . . . The idea we can have full blown Sunni, Shia, Kurd conflict where they’re going to duke it out for power, and have all that oil infrastructure remain untouched, I think is a fantasy.”

    So, what happens to oil prices if Iraqi oil is taken off the market because of war?  Martenson says, “If that goes away, oil prices are set at the margin.  That 2.5 million barrels going off line brings us to $150 oil.  If something worse happens, Saudi Arabia gets involved or the Strait of Hormuz gets closed down, then we’re talking about numbers like $200 a barrel, and that might even seem cheap.  We don’t know how high oil could go if this turns into regional conflict.  That is the risk, and it’s on the table now.”

Washington’s New World Order Weapons Have the Ability to Trigger Climate Change!

  • Washington’s New World Order Weapons Have the Ability to Trigger Climate Change! 
    by Prof Michel Chossudovsky, http://www.globalresearch.ca/, 17 June 2005 
    The important debate on global warming under UN auspices provides but a partial picture of climate change; in addition to the devastating impacts of greenhouse gas emissions on the ozone layer, the World’s climate can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated “non-lethal weapons.” Both the Americans and the Russians have developed capabilities to manipulate the World’s climate.

    In the US, the technology is being perfected under the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) as part of the (“Star Wars”) Strategic Defence Initiative (SDI). Recent scientific evidence suggests that HAARP is fully operational and has the ability of potentially triggering floods, droughts, hurricanes and earthquakes. From a military standpoint, HAARP is a weapon of mass destruction. Potentially, it constitutes an instrument of conquest capable of selectively destabilising agricultural and ecological systems of entire regions.

    While there is no evidence that this deadly technology has been used, surely the United Nations should be addressing the issue of “environmental warfare” alongside the debate on the climatic impacts of greenhouse gases…

    Despite a vast body of scientific knowledge, the issue of deliberate climatic manipulations for military use has never been explicitly part of the UN agenda on climate change. Neither the official delegations nor the environmental action groups participating in the Hague Conference on Climate Change (CO6) (November 2000) have raised the broad issue of “weather warfare” or “environmental modification techniques (ENMOD)” as relevant to an understanding of climate change.

    The clash between official negotiators, environmentalists and American business lobbies has centered on Washington’s outright refusal to abide by commitments on carbon dioxide reduction targets under the 1997 Kyoto protocol.(1) The impacts of military technologies on the World’s climate are not an object of discussion or concern. Narrowly confined to greenhouse gases, the ongoing debate on climate change serves Washington’s strategic and defense objectives.

    “WEATHER WARFARE”
    World renowned scientist Dr. Rosalie Bertell confirms that “US military scientists … are working on weather systems as a potential weapon. The methods include the enhancing of storms and the diverting of vapor rivers in the Earth’s atmosphere to produce targeted droughts or floods.” (2) Already in the 1970s, former National Security advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski had foreseen in his book “Between Two Ages” that:

    “Technology will make available, to the leaders of major nations, techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of the security forces need be appraised… [T]echniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm.”

    Marc Filterman, a former French military officer, outlines several types of “unconventional weapons” using radio frequencies. He refers to “weather war,” indicating that the U.S. and the Soviet Union had already “mastered the know-how needed to unleash sudden climate changes (hurricanes, drought) in the early 1980s.”(3) These technologies make it “possible to trigger atmospheric disturbances by using Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) radar [waves].” (4)

    A simulation study of future defense “scenarios” commissioned for the US Air Force calls for:

    “US aerospace forces to ‘own the weather’ by capitalizing on emerging technologies and focusing development of those technologies to war-fighting applications… From enhancing friendly operations or disrupting those of the enemy via small-scale tailoring of natural weather patterns to complete dominance of global communications and counterspace control, weather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary… In the United States, weather-modification will likely become a part of national security policy with both domestic and international applications. Our government will pursue such a policy, depending on its interests, at various levels.(5)

    HIGH-FREQUENCY ACTIVE AURORAL RESEARCH PROGRAM (HAARP)
    The High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) based in Gokoma Alaska –jointly managed by the US Air Force and the US Navy– is part of a new generation of sophisticated weaponry under the US Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). Operated by the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Space Vehicles Directorate, HAARP constitutes a system of powerful antennas capable of creating “controlled local modifications of the ionosphere”. Scientist Dr. Nicholas Begich –actively involved in the public campaign against HAARP– describes HAARP as:

David Icke: ISIS Trigger for The Start of Albert Pike’s Satanic World War III?

  • Published on Jun 26, 2014
    In this video Luke Rudkowski talks to David Icke about his predictions with ISIS and the possible start of WWIII. David breaks down many esoteric historical writings and the current political situation that can lead to bringing in other countries to war.

Albert_Pike-Greater_Middle_East_War_World_War_3

  • Emphasis and comments mine:

    Albert Pike’s Satanic World War 3 Plan
    The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…

    We shall unleash the Nihilists (ie. terrorists see definition below) and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil.

    Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.” 4
  • Nihilism – A diffuse, revolutionary movement of mid 19th-century Russia that scorned authority and tradition and believed in reason, materialism, and radical change in society and government through terrorism and assassination.

Illuminati Bilderberg Planned Genocide Terror Police State!

  • Daniel Estulin’s “True Story of the Bilderberg Group” and What They May Be Planning Now!  
    by Stephen Lendman, http://sjlendman.blogspot.com/ , 1 June 2009 
    For over 14 years, Daniel Estulin has investigated and researched the Bilderberg Group’s far-reaching influence on business and finance, global politics, war and peace, and control of the world’s resources and its money.

    His book, “The True Story of the Bilderberg Group,” was published in 2005 and is now updated in a new 2009 edition. He states that in 1954, “the most powerful men in the world met for the first time” in Oosterbeek, Netherlands, “debated the future of the world,” and decided to meet annually in secret. They called themselves the Bilderberg Group with a membership representing a who’s who of world power elites, mostly from America, Canada, and Western Europe with familiar names like David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Bill Clinton, Gordon Brown, Angela Merkel, Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, Larry Summers, Tim Geithner, Lloyd Blankfein, George Soros, Donald Rumsfeld, Rupert Murdoch, other heads of state, influential senators, congressmen and parliamentarians, Pentagon and NATO brass, members of European royalty, selected media figures, and invited others – some quietly by some accounts like Barack Obama and many of his top officials.

    Always well represented are top figures from the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), IMF, World Bank, Trilateral Commission, EU, and powerful central bankers from the Federal Reserve, the ECB’s Jean-Claude Trichet, and Bank of England’s Mervyn King.

    For over half a century, no agenda or discussion topics became public nor is any press coverage allowed. The few invited fourth estate attendees and their bosses are sworn to secrecy. Nonetheless, Estulin undertook “an investigative journey” that became his life’s work. He states:

    “Slowly, one by one, I have penetrated the layers of secrecy surrounding the Bilderberg Group, but I could not have done this withot help of ‘conscientious objectors’ from inside, as well as outside, the Group’s membership.” As a result, he keeps their names confidential.

    Whatever its early mission, the Group is now “a shadow world government….threaten(ing) to take away our right to direct our own destinies (by creating) a disturbing reality” very much harming the public’s welfare. In short, Bilderbergers want to supplant individual nation-state sovereignty with an all-powerful global government, corporate controlled, and check-mated by militarized enforcement.

    Bilderberg Objectives
    The Group’s grand design is for “a One World Government (World Company) with a single, global marketplace, policed by one world army, and financially regulated by one ‘World (Central) Bank’ using one global currency.” Their “wish list” includes:

    — “one international identify (observing) one set of universal values;”
    — centralized control of world populations by “mind control;” in other words, controlling world public opinion;
    — a New World Order with no middle class, only “rulers and servants (serfs),” and, of course, no democracy;
    — “a zero-growth society” without prosperity or progress, only greater wealth and power for the rulers;
    — manufactured crises and perpetual wars;
    — absolute control of education to program the public mind and train those chosen for various roles;
    — “centralized control of all foreign and domestic policies;” one size fits all globally;
    — using the UN as a de facto world government imposing a UN tax on “world citizens;”
    — expanding NAFTA and WTO globally;
    — making NATO a world military;
    — imposing a universal legal system; and
    — a global “welfare state where obedient slaves will be rewarded and non-conformists targeted for extermination.”

Israeli Bulldozers Raze Bedouin Community, Leave Children Without Water in High Temperatures!

  • In Photos: Israeli Bulldozers Raze Bedouin Community, Leave Children Without Water in High Temperatures! 
    by Silvia Boarini, Electronic Intifada, http://www.globalresearch.ca/ 
    Hundreds of Israeli forces encircled al-Araqib village at 9:30am on 12 June; by 11:30am police had demolished most of the homes of the twenty remaining residents of al-Araqib who have lived in dire conditions since July 2010 when their village was first razed to the ground.

    The village of al-Araqib, a Bedouin community in the Naqab (Negev) desert in the south of present-day Israel, was razed to the ground by state authorities for the sixty-ninth time since July 2010 last week. This demolition marked the first time police destroyed homes erected within the cemetery area of the village.

    At 9:30am on Thursday, 12 June, approximately 350 police officers and special forces encircled the village and rounded up inhabitants in the makeshift mosque. Homes were bulldozed to the ground in about three hours and the rubble cleared away by 4:30pm.

    Police then forcibly entered the makeshift mosque, arresting seven Bedouin and Jewish Israeli activists, amongst them two minors. Authorities demolished the mosque’s minaret and then left.

    Villagers vow to remain. Since Thursday night they have been sleeping in the open with only trees and the sky as shelter. Police are permanently stationed outside the cemetery.

    “We have no water, no beds, no kitchen, no bathroom. We have nothing but we are staying,” said Haqima Abumadegham al-Turi, mother of nine.

    Al-Araqib is one of 35 unrecognized Bedouin villages in the Naqab. The state does not recognize the right of the Bedouin to live on the lands of al-Araqib and does not provide any basic services to them such as water or electricity.

    Despite a protracted and ongoing legal battle between the village and the Israel Land Authority over ownership of the land, a government master plan sees al-Araqib classified as a recreational area. The Israel Land Authority and the Jewish National Fund have begun planting a forest on the Bedouin’s ancestral lands.

    The village was first demolished on 26 July 2010, when roughly 300 people were left homeless. Since January 2011 twenty people have remained, building their homes within the village’s cemetery area. While demolition continued for structures built outside the cemetery perimeter, inside it the families found a safe haven.

    “My grandmother was ill in bed when the Nazis came to her home town. A German soldier shot her dead in her bed. “My grandmother did not die to provide cover for Israeli soldiers murdering Palestinian grandmothers in Gaza. ”

    “The present Israeli government ruthlessly and cynically exploits the continuing guilt among gentiles over the slaughter of Jews in the Holocaust as justification for their murder of Palestinians.”

  • He said the claim that many of the Palestinian victims were militants “was the reply of the Nazi” and added: “I suppose the Jews fighting for their lives in the Warsaw ghetto could have been dismissed as militants.”

‘Israel was born out of Jewish Terrorism! …. They are not simply war criminals. They are fools!’

  • … it turns out the creation of Israel had not, after all, been a haphazard fight in which the Arabs fled their homes at the directives of their own leaders, but it had been an unprovoked, systematic campaign of ethnic cleansing by the Jewish militia involving massacres, terrorism and the wholesale looting of an entire nation.” from 4:22 onwards
  • “In 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, of Hebrew University, a biologist, published the first extensive study of DNA and the origin of the Jews. Her research found that virtually all the Jews came from Khazar blood. Not only that but Oppenheim discovered that the Palestinians—the very people whom the Jews had been persecuting and ejecting from Israel’s land since 1948—had more Israelite blood than did the Jews. In sum, the vast majority of the Jews were not Jews; some of the Palestinians were. Some of the Palestinians even had a DNA chromosome which established that they were “Cohens”—workers at the ancient Temple and synagogues of the Jews.” – Quote

US, NATO Powder Keg in Europe 100 Years Since WWI ! Laying the Foundation for WW3!

World_War_3 Russia US NATO

  • US, NATO powder keg in Europe 100 years since WWI! 
    by Finian Cunningham, http://www.presstv.com/ 
    One hundred years ago today, the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife in the Bosnian city of Sarajevo was the fatal spark that ignited a geopolitical powder keg in Europe.

    Within a month, all the major powers of Europe would be embroiled in the First World War, which also dragged in Russia and the US. The war would last for nearly five years and resulted in at least 20 million deaths.

    That catastrophe has perplexing resonances with today. A single incident set off a conflagration back then because it came amid simmering rivalries among imperial powers. Another resonance is how historians recount that in the run-up to the First World War few believed that a war in “modern, civilized” Europe was likely because of the belief that diplomacy would prevail.

    Today, we see similar reckless goading by imperial powers across Europe. The US and its European NATO allies have embarked on a 25-year expansion towards Russia’s heartland. The dynamic of encroachment has only sped up, not lessened. This expansion is provocative, aggressive and duplicitous because it not only presents a military threat to Russia it also flies in the face of past commitments by the US-led NATO alliance not to do so, such as in the 1997 Founding Act, signed with Moscow.

    Russia has every right to feel threatened by ever-encroaching ballistic missile systems on its borders that could be used in a pre-emptive nuclear strike by the US and its allies. That concern is heightened ever since Washington invoked a “first strike doctrine” under President George W Bush, which Obama still retains.

    Yet, provocatively, Washington dismisses Russian President Vladimir Putin’s concerns about NATO expansion as if they the deliriums of a Soviet revanchist.

    The complacency of the present time towards the dangers of war has disturbing echoes of the past – on the eve of World War I. A major factor in the present complacency is that the Western mainstream media are failing, woefully, to properly report on the gravity of the situation in Ukraine, and just how provocative that parlous situation is to Russia’s vital interests.This week saw the signing of a trade pact between the European Union and Petro Poroshenko, the declared president of Ukraine. The Western media have hailed it in glowing terms as “a landmark event” and a positive outcome of democracy in the former Soviet Republic. That blithe assessment invites dangerous ignorance and complacency.

    The truth is that the signing of the EU trade pact is the outcome of an illegal regime-change operation in Ukraine fomented by Washington and its NATO allies. That regime change involved CIA-backed mass murder of civilians (the February 20 sniper shootings in Kiev’s Maidan Square) and the overthrow of an elected government.

    Since the illegal coup against President Viktor Yanukovych, the Western-backed Kiev regime has been waging war on the ethnic Russian populations in the east and south of the country, who refuse to recognize the regime as legitimate. Poroshenko, the billionaire oligarch who is now signing over sovereign affairs of Ukraine to the US, NATO and the EU, was elected as president in a farce vote last month, where only 45 percent of the electorate turned out and large sections of the east and south did not even cast a ballot amid a murderous “anti-terror” crackdown by Kiev troops and paramilitaries.

Obama Requests Nearly $60B to Continue Endless War!

  • Obama requests nearly $60B to continue endless war! 
    by Andrea Germanos | Common Dreams, via http://www.intellihub.com/ 
    President Obama on Thursday announced he would ask Congress for $58.6 billion in war funding for the 2015 fiscal year.

    A
    White House statement outlining the request for what is formally called the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) notes that it is $20.9 billion less than what had been figured in an earlier budget.

    The OCO—re-branded from the Global War on Terror—fund is in addition to the nearly $500 billion base FY2015 budget for the Defense Department.

    The OCO fund request amount on its own represents 1.55 percent of the total budget, but is part of the overall military spending that accounts for over 16 percent of the budget.

    The OCO budget “isn’t subject to caps or cuts or any restrictions at all,” as Mattea Kramer of the National Priorities Projected has noted, and, as Defense News reported earlier this month, “The administration has never announced a final year for OCO funding.”

    “While it is good to see the Overseas Contingency Operations account finally begin to come down, the Pentagon’s request continues to use OCO as a massive slush fund to avoid fiscal discipline,” Stephen Miles, coalition coordinator for Win Without War, stated to Common Dreams. “At nearly $60 billion, the request is $40 billion over what the Administration itself has pegged as the costs of our mission in Afghanistan,” he added.

    Included within the nearly $60 billion request is “$500 million for a proposed authority to train and equip vetted elements of the Syrian armed opposition to help defend the Syrian people, stabilize areas under opposition control, facilitate the provision of essential services, counter terrorist threats, and promote conditions for a negotiated settlement.”

    As Democracy Now! reported Friday, “If approved, it would mark the most direct U.S. military role in the [Syrian] conflict to date, following more covert forms of support for the rebels.”

    In contrast to calls by war hawks for continued military intervention, Miles added that the American public doesn’t want continued war funding. “Americans want our tax dollars to be coming home with our troops,” he stated.
