- A more appropriate title for this piece would have been
"Orchestrating Financial Collapse".
- Admittedly the hardest part of observing the unfolding
of a prearranged history is connecting the dots. More to the point, to
be able to see how all things are connected and work in concert to achieve
a desired goal.
- So I'd like to throw some things out that the public
at large doesn't know and never would. What I am about to tell is common
knowledge in oil circles but the worker ants at the bottom of the pyramid
never question what they see. I was an eye witness to what I am going to
relate and there are a good many others who could come forward if only
- In 2000, I worked in the Gulf of Mexico for two different
OSV companies that provided support services to the "oil patch".
The two companies did very different work for the oil companies so I got
to get an eye full.
- The first thing that I'd like to expose is the fact that
nearly all of the new wells in the gulf are immediately capped off and
forgotten about. I saw well after well brought in only to see them capped
off and left. Oil or natural gas it didn't matter. I asked a couple of
petroleum engineers what exactly was going on and I was told by both (they
worked for different companies) that there was no intention of bringing
that oil to market until the "price was right".
- That wasn't the only bogus thing that was happening.
Seismic technology had developed to the point that they could not only
tell the companies where the oil was but how much oil was there. All they
had to do was go out and stick a straw in and suck it out. They didn't.
Once again, the oil prices weren't right. When they are ready and want
it they know right where to go get it.
- Another lie I'd like to lay to rest is the one about
all of the "terrible damage" done to the oil platforms and rigs
in the gulf during hurricanes. This is how they justify the price spikes
that occur because of lost production. If anyone cared to see this for
themselves they could travel the entire Gulf of Mexico in search of destroyed
oil rigs and they won't find any- not one. There is a damed good reason
that this is so and that reason is that they are built so well that a hurricane
can't touch them.
- Think about it . If you're going to build something in
an area where you are guaranteed to see 150-180 mph winds, storm swells
up to 60-80 feet and it will happen year after year, how would you build
them? Out of chicken wire and duct tape? Hell no and they don't. The platforms
are designed to offer almost no wind resistance and the majority of platforms
are at least 120 feet above the water level. They are built so well that
several of them have suffered direct hits by watercraft of all sizes with
little harm. They were damaged but they were far from destroyed.
- The reason that I know how well they are constructed
is because for awhile I worked with a company that salvaged derelict oil
rigs. When the wells ran dry and the oil companies didn't need them any
more the company that I worked for would buy them, take them apart, haul
them back to land, refurbish and then resell them. It is an incredible
process to take these things apart because they are constructed so
- I've worked on the boats that hauled explosives to the
job sites to speed the disassembly process.
- Another lie regards the "burp" in the supply
line. Oil companies are as stingy as any on earth and one of the ways that
they cut costs is to eliminate the number of people that they need on a
rig to keep it running. Most active wells are totally automated and require
almost no human intervention. The oil companies have guys that travel from
rig to rig via helicopter to check on things periodically but most never
- a human on them unless something goes wrong or some maintenance
- During a hurricane about the only rigs that need to be
evacuated are the drill rigs that have workers on them. The active wells
and pumping stations are controlled by remote control from the shore and
if it weren't for the evacuation of land based personnel from areas where
there is danger from the hurricanes these things could continue to pump
right through the worst hurricane.
- So, regarding a burp in the supply chain there shouldn't
be one and that is because most of the oil from the Gulf of Mexico goes
to the refinerys at Port Arthur or other points in Texas and the tankers
from the middle east go to Galveston to offload.
- When oil moves across the Atlantic during hurricane season
the tanker traffic may have to kill some time to let a storm get ahead
of them but once it does they haul ass right behind it. Anyone who has
seen how fast an oil tanker can move in open water will tell you that they
don't dawdle around. Most of them can move around 30-40 knots and for a
ship that size that baby is moving on. The only reason they would have
- kill any more time would be if a hurricane suddenly changed
course and was headed for Galveston. So far this year that hasn't happened.
So why the "break" in supply?
- Everything that we hear about oil from the oil companies
is a big fat lie. Have we hit "peak oil" as a good many insist
that we have? I'll make a wager with anyone who would care to take the
bet. I bet that when oil hits $100 a barrel (I have a hunch that's the
target price) there will be no shortage. Any takers?
- One of the most astounding things to watch when the elite
swing into action is what I call conservation of movement. If you had three
events that you wanted to set into motion you could apply the necessary
pressure separately to all three to get them moving. Or you could do what
these guys do and wait patiently until you see the right opportunity to
apply the pressure in only one spot that will move the other two with the
momentum from the first. The difference is whether something is pushed
or pulled along. It"s as graceful as a ballet to watch in motion.
No wasted motion, no wasted energy, it would almost be a thing of beauty
if it weren't for the rotten purposes behind it all.
- So for all of the kiddies that are waiting for their
draft notices I would say don't bother, I don't think that there will be
a draft. They won't need one. Since the all volunteer military came into
being recruitment has always had an inverse relationship to the economy.
The better the economy the harder it is to get recruits. We're facing a
winter season in North America that may see heating costs equal to a family's
house payment. If our weather is being controlled expect it to be a bad
one. With $100 dollar a barrel oil on the horizon and the ensuing loss
of jobs because of energy costs the military will be one of the only places
a young man or woman will be able to eat on a regular basis and keep a
roof over their heads.
- The beltway fascists have said all along that there would
be no draft because they wouldn't need one. Don't you have to wonder how
they knew this (what is it you say- just a coincidence nothing to worry
about)? God does work in mysterious ways. The neocons need cannon fodder
for their war machine and lo and behold mysterious market forces drop it
on their doorstep.
- For another coincidence take a look at Social Security
here in the US.Amazing how the price of oil began a sudden rise when it
became apparent that the American people weren't going to allow their retirement
money to be "privatized". When the carrot didn't work the stick
wasn't far behind.
