Is all of this talk about Regime Change in Iran, and Venezuela just about the Oil? What has been the Fate of Saddam Hussein, and Muammar Qadaffi after they attempted to sell their Countries Oil in contracts not based upon the U.S. Dollar?


 The Venezuelan Bolivar Currency has an Inflation Rate Comparable to Al Gore's Infamous Hockey Stick  Chart, Making this FIAT Paper Currency as Worthless as Confetti,  yet not quite as useful as Chinese Monopoly Money. 
How much longer can the US Petrodollar Scam continue?



Brzezinski's Grand Chessboard:
 Is this a Game the U.S.A. can ultimately win, when ancient wisdom declares that the borrower is servant to the lender?

"The golden era of American Energy is now underway" 
President Donald Trump
Does "The Donald" have a Trump Card Up his sleeve to Win the 2020 Election? Will the Orangeman who ran as a Non-Interventionist in 2016 heed the advice of his Hawkish Henchmen and take US to War to appease his harshest Media Critics by propping up the Stock Values of Big Oil, and the Military Industrial Complex on Wall Street,
to prop up the ever plunging value of the U.S. Dollar via Economic Trade Wars,
 and Rumors of Petrodollar Oil Regime Change Wars in Iran, Venezuela, and perhaps even China?
What is the real agenda behind Trump's Total Energy Dominance? 
Which Path to Persia? Who will ultimately win Total Energy Dominance in the 21st Century?
Will it be the Deep State Puppet Masters of Pompeii on the Potomac, 

or will it be the Owners of the Global Belt;
 and New Silk Road Owners in Beijing?

   
How did the most prosperous nation in South America, boasting not only the world's largest known oil reserves, yet a land rich in rare earth strategic minerals such as coltan, titanium, iron, gold, bauxite, diamond, copper, coal, quartz, tin, and nickel; turn into a country ablaze with rioting and geopolitical chaos with severe food, water, and medicine shortages with the world's most inflated currency? Is the ongoing suffering of the Venezuelan people due solely to the corruption, and incompetence of their "despotic Communist/Socialist Dictators" since Chavez' Bolivarian Revolution began in 1999; or has the greed of international corporations, as well as outside national governments desire to plunder Venezuela's vast riches also played a role in "The Bust of Venezuela" and the "Humanitarian Crisis" that is playing out 24/7 on CNN and other Corporate News Networks largely funded by big advertising budgets of "Big Oil?"  


What is the connection between the Trump Administrations recently failed Coup d'etat led by the CIA asset, and Big Oil amigo Juan Guaido de la Guero in Venezuela, and the current rumors of war with Iran; beyond the obvious connections of these two major oil producing nations? What is the connection between Washington's ongoing economic sanctions against the "Despotic Regimes" in Caracas, and Tehran, and the Chinese Yuan's emergence as the currency of international oil exchange; and the Petrodollar's increasing need of life support via the U.S. Military Industrial Complex's "Humanitarian" interventions in foreign Regime Change wars, and rumors of wars; now spanning the Administrations of multiple U.S. Presidents? 

 To what depths of depravity are the new Trifecta of U.S. Hegemony:  Bolton, Pompeo, and Trump willing to plunge to protect Wall Street stock prices, and big donations from Big Oil refiners like the Koch Brothers which are currently in need of "heavy crude" oil transfusions to keep their refineries along the Gulf Coast designed to optimally process Venezuelan heavy crude at peak efficiency? 

Will China dump or essentially hit Trump with a Margin Call, based upon China's current holdings of $1.2 Trillion dollars in U.S. Treasury Bonds, and other government debts, as well as their ever increasing ownership in U.S. Corporations, Real Estate, and even over certain U.S. Ports such as the Port of Long Beach California to wage a Shen the Sea Dragons version of Global Thermo-Trade war against the world's most indebted nation, the Country formerly known as "The Home of the Free, and the Land of the Brave New World Order?" 



What will ultimately be the end game of Trump's Three Dimensional Economic Trade War, now being waged on three fronts in Venezuela, Iran, and China with Xi Jinping? How long can the American Empire stand, when it's very existence is dependent upon a Casino owners ability to keep the worlds oldest con game the U.S. Petrodollar scam running? 

In this game of global Monopoly the objective is to bankrupt all of your opponents. China's Xi Jinping's and his predecessors have been methodically buying up lands, businesses, and even making that huge loans to governments of countries like Iran, and Venezuela that possess abundant energy resources like oil to fuel China's manufacturing industry, as well as lands that have key rare earth mineral reserves that are essential for the production of the ever updated versions of the high tech gadgets we crave as consumers. Unsurprisingly China is the leading mining producer of rare earth minerals, and possesses the world's largest reserves of rare earth minerals at an estimated 44 million Metric Tons. as well as the ever evolving development of the high tech components essential to even the weapons systems of the world's currently foremost "Superpower" the U.S. Military. What is the U.S. Military's Greatest Weakness? China Builds a Huge Chunk of it! 

USAF F 35 Fighter Jets: Made in China Avionics!

Forget the Collusion Delusion of the Shame Stream Presstitute Media, Trump's Legacy, and the future economic prosperity, and the collective destiny of the American people on both sides of the political aisle; and for better, or not both sides of the Rio Grande/Rio Bravo del Norte depends upon how our Fearless Leader plays his Trump card in this 21st century game of global domination! 



If you have an attention span greater than a Goldfish, and a diligent desire to better understand the forces behind the curtain of our current Geopolitical intrigue , turn off the TV, step away from the hidden agendas of the Big Oil/Pharma financed Corporate News Networks, and stay dialed in down da line via:
  




When will the Value of the U.S. Dollar Fiat Currency Plunge into a fatal Tailspin, like the Historic Weimar Republics Reichsmark, and the modern Venezuelan Bolivar?


Chavez' Bolivarian Revolution: Birth of the Bolivarian Republic of Venzuela..."Socialism of the 21st Century!" 

Hugo Chavez was elected President of Venezuela in December 1998, primarily because he had won the hearts, and minds of the poor, and working class peoples of Venezuela who happen to be of darker skinned ethnicity; than the Spanish Oligarchy the 1% who enjoyed the prosperity of South America's wealthiest country in the 20th Century. The Bolivarian Revolution was Chavez' vision of wealth redistribution to the 99% of his people primarily by  Nationalizing the Oil Industry by kicking Exxon Mobil, BP, and Shell the hell out of Venezuela, replacing these seasoned major oil producing international corporations with Petroleos de Venezuela "PDVSA" which ultimately has become a hyper bureaucratic government mismanaged nationalized oil production company, that fired thousands of skilled oil field workers for purely political reasons, replaced by Chavez' "homies" many who lacked the prerequisite knowledge, and skills of modern heavy crude oil production out of pure nepotism, which over the process of time has made Venezuela's Oil more costly to produce, while significantly reducing PDVSA's current oil production levels. 

"The American Dream is more apt to be realized in Venezuela" 
Bernie Sanders 2011

 Chavez' initial groundswell wave of popularity among Venezuela's poor, and working class peoples via "21st Century Socialism" came at a time when Global Oil prices rose dramatically. Chavez had "a base of oil, he had a Cash Cow, that never, never a leader of Venezuela had before"...when Chavez came to power in December 1998, oil was roughly trading at $7 to $9 a barrel, but by 2004 Oil had skyrocketed to over $100 per barrel. With his growing wealth, and power Chavez looked towards Cuba for ideas for how he could like Fidel Castro could effectively be the fearless Supreme Leader for life, via instigating Social Welfare programs, buying Fidelity via giving away "free caca" like National Healthcare, imported Food, and free cooking oil (LP Gas cylinders) distribution for the poor, and needy, and of course Bernie approved free College Scholarships for Venezuela's poor and middle class students that would further increase his status among the voters in the barrios, to secure his expanding political ambitions. In other words the same kind of programs once envisioned by former Libyan leader Muammar Qadaffi, or to some extent by modern Progressive U.S. Politicians such as Bernie Sanders whose Socialism Utopia pipe dream is vaped in High School Bathrooms, College Dorm Rooms, and the apartments of Milennials struggling to buy their own homes; as well as by Mayor Pistol (confiscation) Pete, Alexandria Occasional Cortex, and Robert Francis O'Rourke aka Master Beto! 

Chavez' comprehensive efforts to provide "basic human rights" was totally dependent upon oil according to Professor Miguel Tinker Salas author of Venezuela: What Everyone Needs to Know "what this is doing though is essentially still using oil, as that redemptive quality to bring Social Change. While bringing Social Change deepening the dependence on oil, and he can do this while the prices of oil are high." While Chavez gave lip service to diversifying Venezuela's economy after his reelection in 2006 Chavez' now massive wealth redistribution programs became even more dependent upon Venezuela's Nationalized Oil Industry that began to suffer from drops in production due primarily to Chavez' purges of key oil production personnel for political reasons. Chavez also misused Venezuela's oil reserve, and rare earth mineral potential to borrow massive amounts of international investments primarily from China, which has loaned the Chavez, and Maduro Administrations well over $60 Billion. "He had a high price of oil, and he had access to finance, he could borrow as if it were going out of fashion, so he decided that that was the moment to radicalize the process"  

After 2006 Chavez, with typical bureaucratic inefficiency; began to Nationalize industries beyond  petroleum such as Electricity, Telecommunications, the Banco de Venezuela, from the Spanish Bank Santander. Venezuela lost most of it's private companies that had the experience and knowledge to keep Venezuelan industries operating productively such as the Cement Businesses. Chavez borrowed money from China, and the International Banksters to import virtually all products needed for daily life, while decimating Venezuela's ability to manufacture their own goods. Kind of sounds familiar to what has been going on within the United States for the past 50 years, except that our outsourcing of manufacturing by U.S. Corporations has been designed to maximize Stock Prices for Shareholders, and our Government borrowing has been used to subsidize U.S. Entitlement Programs for the Poor, as well as the ever expanding blood thirst of the Military Industrialist Complex that President Eisenhower warned us about in his farewell speech! 

As oil prices went up from 2004 till 2014 Venezuela's National debt skyrocketed up 600%. Chavez' Administration spent nearly all of the money they had borrowed from the Global Banking Cartel, and China. Yet as Oil Prices Peaked, so too did the health of Chavez, Just like Chavez' vitality, Foreign investment started to dry up, and Venezuela's economy started it's deadly downward tailspin. 

"The biggest sucker in history, is the guy that is going to follow Chavez as President. and that's exactly what happened

Following Chavez death from Cancer in March of 2013. By April Nicholas Maduro, Chavez' handpicked successor was elected to continue the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela, yet by June of 2014 the price of oil started to plunge precipitously. Due to the strangle hold of it's total debt to the Global Banksters of about $150 Billion, the value of Venezuela's currency dropped dramatically, and it lacked sufficient reserves of U.S. dollars (USD) to continue to import the food stuffs, toiletries, medicines, and oil production equipment needed to improve their oil production as U.S. Financial Sanctions intensified after Maduro rose to power. Thus Maduro had the misfortune of taking the reigns of power in a time period of Venezuela's enduring the largest financial recession in the history of the Western Hemisphere with an inflation to their currency of over 13,000%, in other words their paper money became worthless. 

Now as the Media Industrial Complex within the United States is showing us images of chaos in Venezuela, and banging their War Drums in the name of Humanitarian Intervention, just what is the Truth that we need to understand about Venezuela; and what possible motives may be behind the Trump Administrations need to declare that "All Options are on the Table on Venezuela!" A Country that has no ambition or desire for a war against the U.S. other than keeping Madura in power, and an end to their hands tied economically by U.S. economic sanctions? Considering a recent report released by the Center for Economic and Policy Research estimates that U.S. Sanctions have Killed of 40,000 Venezuelan's just since 2017,  does the U.S. really have "The Moral High Ground" in seeking for Regime Change in Venezuela? Do Trump's War Hawk Henchmen have any moral backbone stronger than a Dandelion Puff Ball in their empty suits?
The answer may be found in the video: The Hidden Truth About U.S. Plans for Venezuela. 


In this context of understanding that the U.S. has already been involved in Economic Warfare with Venezuela since the reign of Bush the Lesser,  let's examine the "Crude Legacy of U.S. Neo-Imperialistic humanitarian atrocities instigated by the Bush, Obama, and now apparently Trump Administrations in their Regime Change Oil Wars of the 21st Century primarily thus-far in Iraq, Libya, and Syria; simply can not be fully understood without the background knowledge of the history of the Petrodollar, and just what depths Washington will go to protect Wall Street, and what's left of the value of the U.$. Dollar both domestically, as well as internationally. 



 The Midas Touch: How the Federal Reserve was able to turn paper into Gold...Certificates. 

Note that this 1928 Twenty Dollar U.S. Bill states that the U.S. Treasury Certifies that it has sufficient Gold Deposits on hand that are:
 "PAYABLE TO THE BEARER IN GOLD COIN ON DEMAND."  

Once upon a time the Goldstein's and Silverstein's con-vinced European Elites to safely store their gold, and silver in the "secure vaults" of what ultimately became the ultimate Magicians Trick of the House of Rothschild Banksters, in exchange for paper Certificates representing the value of the gold, or silver deposited with their local Goldsmith. Thus paper money eventually became a "safer" and more convenient way for people to conduct their daily business transactions for the goods and services they needed.

Here is what the wisdom of the U.S. Constitution states about which Branch of the U.S. Government has control over the power of money within the United States of America, as well as in International transactions:

From Article I, Section 8:

"Congress shall have Power...to coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin." and from Section 10,
"no state...shall make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts."

The European based House of Rothschild's had long coveted control over the United States Banking system, and financial markets; eventually the staunch resistance of Andrew Jackson, and countless other knowledgeable Americans to the dangers of a "Central Banking System" succumbed to the treachery of the Wroth's-child's con act via the Creature Jekyll Island and the Federal Reserve Act of 1913
Federal UnReserved Propaganda: the Creation of the Fed:

 The Biggest Bank Robbery in History: G.Edward Griffin Author of the Creature from Jekyll Island concisely explains how we have all become Economic Slaves on the Globalists Plantation: 

Historically paper money has long been suspect in the eyes of those with discernment who have "ears to hear, and eyes that see". Few in the 1800's would have chosen a $20 Paper Bill, over a $ 20 Gold coin. Yet in the process of time the public's confidence in government issued paper money increased to the point that it became widely accepted. By the Roaring Twenties in America, before the collapse of Stock Market in 1929, and the Bank Runs at the dawn of the Great Depression people felt confident that they could exchange their paper money for real gold coins at any Federal Reserve Bank at any time. 

The U.S. Government had set a fixed price of gold at $20.67 per troy ounce after World War I, yet as the International Financial Depression intensified during the late 1920's, and early 1930's the Federal Reserve system soon found itself on shaky ground. European countries which had substantial holdings of U.S. gold backed notes, began to exchange these paper dollars for physical gold coins, and bullion. As the free-market price for real gold leaped skyward, a gold run on the Federal Reserve Banks was imminent; as there simply wasn't anywhere near enough gold to back all of the U.S. Gold Certificates, and Federal Reserve Notes that were in circulation worldwide. As printing more of these paper notes would only further erode the trust of citizens world-wide due to unchecked price inflation the Gold backed fractional reserve system was reaching a crisis that couldn't be tolerated by the House of Rothschild, and the other financially elite families controlling the Federal Reserve. 

F.D.R.'s New Deal Bailout for the Global Banksters:

On April 8th 1933, Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed Executive Order 6102 into Fiat Law, effectively forbidding the "hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates within the Continental United States."  

During a "Fireside Chat" Radio Broadcast on May 7th 1933, President Roosevelt that the total amount of paper gold U.S. Currency notes, and Gold Certificates in worldwide circulation not only exceeded to total quantity of real gold held by the U.S. Treasury, and the Federal Reserve Banks. In fact, the total "gold backed" obligations of the U.S. to private citizens far exceeded the total amount of known gold in the entire world, not even considering corporate gold obligations. As F.D.R. confessed to the American people:

"Behind government currency we have, in addition to the promise to pay, a reserve of gold, and a small reserve of silver, neither of them anything like the total amount of the currency." 

In the same speech, Roosevelt admitted that total U.S. gold reserves (about 5,000 to 6,000 metric tons)were worth between 3 to 4 Billion dollars at the time; and that all of the estimated gold worldwide (about 16,500 metric tons) had a value of $11 Billion in 1933 dollars. 

As the vast quantity of "Loyal U.S. citizens complied with the new "law" by turning in their privately held gold coins, at an exchange rate of $20.67 per ounce, the gold reserves of the U.S. Treasury, and Federal Reserve Banks rapidly increased. Afterwards the Banksters New Dealer F.D.R. stealth-fully raised "the official" price of gold leaped to $35 per ounce. 

Twenty Dollar 1934 FEDERAL RESERVE NOTE:
Note that this NOTE is " LEGAL TENDER" that is Payable to the BEARER ON DEMAND
Twenty Dollars in whatever denomination of $1, $5, or $10 FEDERAL RESERVE NOTES that add up to $20 Bucks!

The U.$. Dollar eventually became the world's "Reserve Currency" with a period of relative stability for the "value of the U.S.D." set at an exchange rate of $35 per ounce of gold between 1933 to 1971. While Historians generally agree that  World War II hastened the Sunset of the British Empire, and effectively ended "The Great Depression, and that The United States of America became to world's first "Superpower" as a result of the vast quantity of military weapon arsenals, airplanes, naval ships, artillery, machine guns, trucks and other military transport vehicles, as well as food staples that U.S. exported worldwide during World War II; America's War Economy accumulated roughly 75% of gold coins, and bullion for the Wroth's-child's Bankster Cabal , making the U.S. the world's premier "Economic Superpower" as well. 

A New Global Empire is born: 

The Bretton-Woods Agreement in 1944 further empowered the International Faith in the U.S. Dollar as the world's "Reserve Currency" to be used in the vast majority of International Trade. By pegging the dollar to a fixed exchange rate of $35 per ounce, other countries were able to exchange their currencies for dollars, instead of reclaiming their gold; as seemingly the dollar was as good as gold! The International Monetary Fund (IMF) was set up to reassure other nations that the gold exchange rate would remain constant, and that the IMF would act as a lender of last resort, if a countries currency value dropped precipitously low compared to the dollar. 

 Meanwhile conditions of the Post War Marshall Plan required European Nations choosing to rely primarily upon the generosity of U.S. Economic Aid for their rebuilding efforts to purchase their material needs exclusively from the United States, which helped the U.S. economy to expand profoundly during the "Baby Boom" Post War years.

 Kissinger's Petrodollar Eureka Moment! 


How did OPEC's Oil Embargo of 1973 give birth to the Petrodollar?

All was well with the U.S. Dollar until the 1960's when U.S. continued entanglements primarily during LBJ's Administration to "contain Communism" in Vietnam, and War on Poverty, and ever expanding Federal entitlement programs such as medicare, as well as ever increasing imports of oil, and other consumer goods from other countries led to these nations accumulating vast reserves of U.S. Dollars, which they wisely began to convert into gold, from the U.S. Treasury, and the Federal Reserve Banks. On the evening of August 15, 1971 Nixon announced his New Economic Policy in a Nationwide Television Broadcast on "The Challenge of Peace" where Nixon laid out his Administrations quest to finally end U.S. Military involvement in South East Asia, and elsewhere. Nixon identified a three-fold task: 

"We must create more and better jobs; we must stop the rise in the cost of living; we must protect the dollar from attacks of international money speculators." 

To achieve the first two goals, Nixon proposed tax cuts and a 90-Day freeze on prices and wages, to achieve the third, Nixon directed the suspension of the dollars convertibility into gold. He ordered an extra 10% tariff to be levied on dutiable imports; which like the suspension of the convertibility of the dollar into gold, this measure was designed to entice the major trading partners of the U.S. to begin to adjust the value of their currencies upwards, as well as level of their trade barriers with the U.S. downwards, an attempt to encourage these nations to increase their imports from the United States. 




At dawn of the 20th Century as the United States of America belatedly entered the High Stakes game of Global Imperialism Teddy Roosevelt used the Power of the Press to express his Mantra of:  
  "Speak Softly, and Carry a Big Stick!" 

to give fair warning to the International Community that the U.S. was emerging as a force to be feared on the 7 Seas, of Geo-Colonialism. 

At  dawn of the 21st Century, George W. Bush;  Poppie's son of a Gun ushered in the Full Spectrum Dominance Mantra of: 

"Shock and Awe!"

to give fair warning to any Totalitarian Oil Rich Regime that dared to mess with the Superpower of the PetroDollar, as Bush the Lesser; with the misguidance of Poppie's Deep State Neo-Cons returned to turn Baghdad into Apocalypse Now, as the horrors of Depleted Uranium continues to plaque the Iraqi people.

This in turn led to the Funda-Mental Transformation of U.S. Regime Change Big Oil Geopolitics under Obama as our Commander in Thief, with the benevolent guidance of his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who's Humanitarian World Vision of Clinton Foundation infamy led to the downfall of the once prosperous nation of Libya, into the ruinous heap of yet another disastrous U.S. Oil Regime Change "Intervention" who's Crude Legacy can best be summed up in the words of der Hilderbeast: 

"We Came, We Saw, He Died...What Difference Does it Make!"  



 Now in the Mid-morning of the 21st Century, we awake most day's to profound wisdom of Neo-Petrodollar Oil Colonialism expressed by the arch enemy of the Media-Industrial Complex, who's Foreign Policy Geopolitical Mantra is apparently:

"All Options are on the Table...Tweet Boldly before Bolton wakes up, and have Pompeo; blow the Trumpet to Sound the Alarm that All Options are on the Table of U.S. Oil Regime Change Petrodollar Neo-Colonialism in Venezuela, and Iran, as the Neo-Cons use the Big Stick of Super Carriers on the High Seize!"

Can you honestly name one oil abundant nation who's people outside of the Global 1% insiders have actually benefited from U.S. intervention since George H.W. "Poppie" Bush of C.I.A. Arbusto Energy Oil company Iran-Contra, War on Drugs, Persian Gulf War, Mena Arkansas infamy enlightened US with his "Thousand Points of (Illuminati) Light and his vision of "A New World Order?" 

     Have you honestly heard one word of praise by the CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS Media Industrial Presstitute Complex for Donald Trump's Policies, except the roar of praise when Trump choose to respond with a hasty arsenal of U.S. Cruise Missile's to yet another alleged report of the "Assad Regime" in Syria using Chemical Weapons against his own people. When previously even the U.N. reported that such previous claims by the International Community were false? 

Have you noticed that the only time that the Media Industrialist Complex Praises Trump is when he as Commander in Chief takes decisive action to Intervene in Syria, Venezuela, and Iran?
Before and shortly after Donald Trump's 2016 Election victory, he declared that he was going to put a stop to U.S. Neo-Imperialistic entanglements: as stated in a December 6 2016 Reuters article: 


In the latest stop on a "thank you" tour of states critical to his Nov. 8 election win, Trump introduced his choice for defense secretary, General James Mattis, to a large crowd in Fayetteville N.C. near the Fort Bragg military base, which has deployed soldiers to 90 countries around the world. 

"We will stop racing to topple foreign regimes that we know nothing about, that we shouldn't be involved with," Trump said. 
"Instead, our focus must be on defeating terrorism and destroying ISIS, and we will." 



2020 Presidential Candidate Tulsi Gabbard is clearly not the establishments choice to become our next Commander in Chief, as her clear concise explanation of the true unseen Costs of War that she has experienced first hand as a Medical Officer in the Army Reserve who has served on two tours of duty in Iraq, was recently attacked on both sides from the rabid She Wolfpack on "The View" 

As Representative Gabbard made her case against the never ending regime change wars of the 21st Century:

..."so many examples throughout history, when the United States takes action, and intervenes, launching these regime change wars to topple these Dictators the suffering of the people in these nations increases...Libya is a perfect example...Qaddafi was toppled, yet today we have more terrorist groups in Libya than ever before. We have Libyan people, women & children being sold in open markets as slaves...
 We feel for the suffering of the people in these countries & we want to be able to help them, and so many of these wars are begun and waged from a place of Humanitarianism, but the reality is, and it's a harsh reality that there is more suffering, more loss of life, and more destruction as a result of these wars which does not serve the people of these countries, nor does it serve our (U.S.) interests or security."

Congressman Gabbard took flack from both directions during this interview on the View primarily from Meghan McCain over her quilt from her Daddies War Crimes in Syria, as well as from Ana Navarro the establishment media's appointed mouthpiece of officially sanctioned Latina Viewpoints over Tulsi's analysis of the ongoing troubles for the Venezuelan peoples due to the Petrodollars woes in Venezuela. 

  Koch Brother's vs the terrible Chinese Oil drinking Sea Monster!

America has a Koch Problem!
The Keystone Pipeline has been a Public Relations Nightmare for the Koch Brothers

Oil and Ogallala Aquifer Waters do not mix well in Federal Courts 
Imagine the frustration of the mega rich Koch Brothers whose mammoth oil refineries along the Texas Gulf Coast would now be running at less than peak capacity without an infusion of Russian Urals Heavy Crude despite their multi-million dollar donations to grease politicians on both sides of the Potomac Swamp banks; to either finally cut the Legislative Red Tape of the Obamanista era,  or to carry out a "successful Regime Change" in Venezuela. Politico reported that Hillary Clinton's 2015 Left Turn on her original support of the Keystone Pipeline project 

"won her heaps of praise from Green minded environmental activists, who had previously denounced her silence on this highly contentious issue,  which became the most divisive environmental topic of Obama's presidency... 



But it also opened her to fresh attacks from Republicans who accused her of putting ideology ahead of the thousands of construction jobs the proposed Canada-to-Texas pipeline would create — and of showing obvious political calculation in announcing her stance just as the media were distracted with Pope Francis' arrival in Washington". 

Trump's 2016 Election triumph surely would result in the Koch's finally overcoming the countless Judicial Branch injunctions, and countless environmental study delays of their Keystone XL, and Dakota Access Pipelines to deliver their heavy investments in Alberta Canada's Tar Sands Oil across the underground  oasis of America's Great Plains: The Ogallala Aquifer which Oil Barons such as T. Boone Pickens have wisely chosen  not to mess with out of for fear for another not so Great Dust Bowl!


While the Koch's Rosemount Bend Refinery in Minnesota is able to tap directly into the Koch's Albertan Oil holdings, The Keystone, and Dakota Access Pipelines have long been the $8 Billion dollar infrastructure investment pipe dream that would finally economically eliminate the Koch's dependence upon Venezuela's Heavy Sour Crude Oil, which Chavez sold to the Koch's at a Premium. 

According to a Trumpet declaration on Whitehouse.gov titled:

UNLEASHING ENERGY DOMINANCE: American energy production is soaring to new heights thanks to President Trump’s policies.
  • President Trump has paved the way for more energy infrastructure development, ensuring American energy can be delivered to the market.
    • The Trump Administration approved the Dakota Access Pipeline, the Keystone XL Pipeline, and the New Burgos Pipeline.
    • The President signed two Executive Orders to cut red tape that was holding back the construction of new energy infrastructure, like pipelines.
    • The Trump Administration has streamlined permitting for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminals.

During the 2000 U.S. Presidential Campaign the Koch's donated nearly $1 million to the Oil friendly campaigns of George W. Bush, and other Republican candidates. While Venezuela has never threatened the United States nor it's interests outside of Big Oils continued coveting of Venezuela's oil reserves. Never the less, Venezuela under both leaders of their Bolivarian Revolution: Chavez, and Maduro have boldly declared Venezuela's sovereignty and right of self-determination have faced increasing hostility  from the American Government. On April 11, 2002 The Bush Administration clandestinely supported a failed military coup d'etat against Hugo Chavez who had the audacity to be an open critic of Washington's "Imperialistic economic and foreign policy." was removed from power for two days before being reinstalled as an "anti-imperialist hero" In her Book: Breaking the Chavez Code Cracking U.S. Intervention in Venezuela Eva Golinger reports that:

"Documents obtained under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) evidence a clear role of the U.S. government in the coup, as well as financial and political support for those Venezuelans involved. A “lockout” and economic sabotage of Venezuela’s oil industry was imposed from December 2002 to February 2003. After the defeat of the coup against Chavez, the U.S. State Department issued a special fund via the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) to help the opposition continue efforts to overthrow Chavez. USAID set up an Office for Transition Initiatives (OTI) in Caracas, subcontracting U.S. defense contractor Development Alternatives Inc. (DAI) to oversee Venezuela operations and distribute millions of dollars to anti-government groups. The result was the “national strike” launched in December 2002 that brought the oil industry to the ground and devastated the economy. It lasted 64 days and caused more than $20 billion in damages. Nonetheless, the efforts failed to destabilize the Chavez government."
On December 18, 2014 Obama signed of on economic sanctions against 7 top Venezuelan officials for alleged corruption, and human rights violations. 
Obama's Drone War is a Shameful Part of his Legacy that has killed hundreds of innocent Civilians including countless Children

Then in March of 2015 the Administration of Obamanation declared Venezuela to be a Threat to U.S. National Security (for having the audacity to sell their oil in contracts based upon the Euro, and the Chinese Yuan.


Since January 28, 2019 The Trump Administration has steadfastly ratcheted up a broad range of sanctions aimed at choking off Maduro's economic lifeblood of international oil, and gold transactions. 


Surely the oil embargo sanctions cutting off Venezuela's ability to sell it's oil on the global market with the exception of India, and China have indeed led to Human Rights hardships responsible for the deaths of an estimated 40,ooo innocent Venezuelan citizens due to starvation, rampant violence, diseases due to unsanitary conditions, lack of proper medical care/medicines in that recent report by the Center of Economic Progress.

The Koch Brother's Flint Hills Refinery in Corpus Christi Texas. Why can't this Refinery use West Texas "Light Sweet Crude", or the nearby Eagle Ford Shale Fracked Oil? Quite simply it's not filthy enough! Like 80% of the PADD 3 Refineries along the Gulf Coast this massive refinery complex was designed to optimally use "Heavy Sour Crude" to produce a myriad of end products like the components needed for the Smart Phone, Tablet, or Laptop computer you are using right now!

The Koch's "Plan C" was to "influence" the 2016 Election to inspire the Legislative Branch to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline to vertically transport their Heavy Canadian Tar Sand Oil across the Great Plains to the Hooked on Heavy Oil Gulf Coast Refineries. The Koch's had been frustrated by the seemingly endless Environmentalist Court Cases that stalled the completion of this controversial pipeline that crosses the Ogallala Aquifer, the underground water table which is the Life Blood of the Breadbasket of the Great Plains. 

According to the New York Times The Koch Brothers "invested" nearly $900 million on Candidates on both sides of the Potomac Swamp during the 2016 Election Cycle. After the Obamanista's lost control of the House as a result of the Election that brought Trump into Office, the Legislative branch swiftly approved their new mandate for the Keystone XL Pipeline, which Trump signed into Law. Yet in February 2019, Federal Court Judge Brian Morris has placed yet another injunction on the Keystone XL Pipeline, further delaying this estimated $8 Billion dollar project to get the Koch Brothers Oil in Alberta Canada, down to their refineries, and others along the western shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Crude Oil "Feedstock" demand for these PADD 3 refineries primarily in Texas and Louisiana is roughly 8 million barrels (bbl/d) per day. Since existing Pipeline capacity flowing south from Alberta to Texas is transporting only about 100,000 bbl/d, the Koch Brothers are currently needing to import the vast majority of their daily crude fix from the Middle East, and increasingly from Russia. 



In a recent Zero Hedge article titled: Sanctions are a Bitch, US Refiners Importing Russian Oil Like Mad   Tom Luongo reports that the:

"U.S. to Triple Imports of Russian Oil amid Sanctions against Venezuela. The market needs to be fed. And refiners will buy whoever has the best cargo at the best price. It is only politicians who don't understand that you can't dictate to the markets. Now refiners in the U.S. have been under pressure with rising oil prices, but Russian oil isn't brought in to supply the tight gasoline market."  Russian Urals grade is considered heavy-sour (high sulfur content) which is better suited for the Koch's Gulf Coast refineries, than the nearby light-sweet  crude extracted from fracking beneath the Eagle Ford Shale located in a region between Corpus Christi, Laredo, San Antonio, and Victoria Texas. While the Koch's have invested over $6 million to increase their refineries capacity to process West Texas, and Eagle Ford Shale "Sweet Crude" the bulk of their refinery investments are still designed to optimize the myriad of products that each of us utilize in our daily lives from the plastics we use including our keyboards,as well as water bottles, synthetic fabrics we wear, the jet, auto, and diesel fuels needed for transportation, to the asphalt road surfaces our grocery, and mega stores, and local package trucks need to deliver the items we need for our Post Modern daily lives.   



How the Koch Brothers Plan to Profit off the Venezuela Coup



Billionaires Carbon Bomb: The Case for Keeping the Koch Brothers Tar Sands Assets in the Ground

What is the Real Agenda behind Regime Change in Venezuela?





American Pravda making the World $afe & Profitable to Exxon Mobil & the Koch Brothers
                                
If you have been receiving your daily Booster Dose of State controlled mainstream propaganda disguised as your “Evening News”, then you have undoubtedly heard that Nicolas Maduro is an evil Sbrutaly ocialist Dictator that is oppressing his own people, and that a regime change in Venezuela must be done in order to restore "Human Rights" to the Venezuelan people. Sound familiar? This echoes the  pre-Regime Change foreshadowing of Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Iran, and now they’re beating the war drums against Venezuela. They’re telling the public that socialism is the root cause of the misery in Venezuela, and yes what diligent student of history isn't totally against socialism, but what they won’t mention is the fact that the United States has slapped harsh economic sanctions against Madura's Government that has crippled Venezuela’s State controlled Oil Industry. They won’t tell you that the Venezuelan people freely elected Nicolas Maduro and his predecessor, Hugo Chavez before him. They will not tell you that the real objective of regime change is to install Juan Guaido, a Big Oil Amigo U.S. puppet president in Venezuela, whom no one has ever heard of, who will be more pliable to Washington D.C.’s, as well as Exxon Mobil's wishes. Nor will they tell you that the main reason for all of this focus on Venezuela has everything to do with gaining control of their oil, and keeping the global Petrodollar, and thus the value of the USD on Life Support as Maduro has made the unforgivable sin of selling Venezuelan oil in contracts based now on the Euro, as well as Chinese Yuan. 
Are you yet in absolute disgust of the detestable hypocrisy of the overpaid liars in the Shame-stream media. For the last two years, we have heard nothing but this constant drumbeat of “Russian meddling in the 2016 election”. They rail with indignation of the thought that a foreign influence may have changed outcome of the U.S. election on one hand, but yet, on the other hand, support Washington D.C.’s coup in Venezuela to unseat a lawfully elected president in order to prop up an obscure U.S. puppet named Juan Guaido in his place. CNN, ABC, MSNBC, NY Times, LA Times, and especially Fox News, agree that regime change is necessary. It’s interesting how both sides the political aisle come together without fail on one thing: WAR. These hypocritical liars that call themselves “journalists” believe it’s okay when the U.S. does it, but not okay when it supposedly happens to us. The hypocrisy is astonishing yet par for the course of the never ending regime change wars carried out by whichever Political Party is currently in charge of the Executive Branch. 

China's Belt and Road massive Geopolitical infrastructure initiative designed for China to ultimately control all land, and sea trade routes in Eurasia, and beyond: 




Rise of the South China Seas Oil Snorting Sea Monster Shen: 
The Fire Blasting Godzilla Annihilating Sea Dragon of the 21st Century who might just take a belt to Trump's @$$, and tell the U.S. to Hit the Road! 




Trump's Pompeo backed Pompeii on the Potomac is currently trying to play Three Dimensional Economic Trade War Chess with Beijing, while being caught up in juvenile verbal jousting with the living caricature that is the Madame Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi which has effectively stifled meaningful U.S. infrastructure legislation coming out of the D.C. Swamp, as China's Grandmaster Xi Jinping is simultaneously playing the long chess match of waiting out The Donald be it by the internal combustion of Capital Hill ImPeach Pit Vipers, or by the rise of a Neo-Democratic Savior, or Obamanista Retread like Creepy Uncle Joe. 



Meanwhile the ever patient Dragon Master Xi Jinping is steadily, and methodically increasing China's global Monopoly holdings by expanding it's control of key global resources like oil, and rare earth minerals via the Chinese Dragons vision of total economic, as well as future Military control of Plan Net Earth via China's Belt and Road Initiative designed to provide China with the Crude Oil Feedstock it needs to operate it's continue to expand it's economic, and military aspirations via China's long term International infrastructure investments both on the seven continents, as well as steadily increasing it's control of the seven seas to ensure the future stranglehold of shipping lanes from the key global oil production regions of the Middle East, and increasingly from the Caribbean oil producing nations of Venezuela, as well as it's now developing off shore oil production off of the Coast of Cuba by China's major state-owned oil company CNPC's subsidiary Great Wall Drilling. 

Russian and Chinese Military could "hit Florida" from Venezuela
Senator Rick Scott Florida Rep. 

“We’re going to have a problem whether we want to acknowledge it or not,” Florida Sen. Rick Scott said on stage at the American Enterprise Institute. “Once they have the foothold in Venezuela, they can come here by land eventually. Our southern border is very porous, as we know. With the right military assets, they can hit Florida or any place else.”

China's increasing economic and military control of the Panama Canal has recently seen the completion of a major expansion of this strategic transoceanic gateway between the Atlantic, and Pacific oceans, enabling the passage of much larger oil tankers through the now far deeper, and wider Panama Canal, as well as China securing long term lease agreements to control key ports that are able for transoceanic Oil Supertankers to be downloaded to far larger oil tankers capable of passage through the canal, to be reloaded onto Supertankers on both sides of the canal.  Gee thanks Jimmy Carter for being such a Pioneer of Geopolitical Social Justice by giving the world's most economic, and strategically vital canal back to the Panamanain government as James Monroe, and Teddy Roosevelt are turning over in their eternal graves. Yes Washington indeed has some well founded concerns over China's expanding presence in Panama as well as Venezuela, and beyond in the Caribbean and South  America, which are providing sound soundbites on the evening and perpetual "Breaking News" propaganda  on Fox, as well as MSNBC, Corporate News Network, and whats left of the Dinosaur Print Media in the U.S.   

Since Chavez came to power China has invested as much as $60 Billion USD into control of Venezuela oil, and rare earth mineral industries, meanwhile the Venezuelan government has racked up an estimated current balance of $ 20 Billion dollars in debt to China; a sum that pales in comparison to the current U.S. debt balance of $1.2 Trillion USD to Beijing. This most significant external debt of $20 Billion USD in Latin American history effectively started in 2007, with the creation of the China-Venezuelan Joint Fund, after Chavez' re-election when the leaders of both countries made an agreement enabling Venezuela to receive loans in tranches with exchange valuations of up to $ 5 Billion USD, payable in future shipments of Venezuelan Crude Oil to China. 

China has taken a long term pragmatic perspective on how Venezuela will pay off their debt to China, via current, and future 
"pre-paid oil shipments to China": The Chinese crave stability in global markets, as they work steadfastly towards total control of this global game of Monopoly. Beijing has been subtly hinting to the War Hawks of the Trump Administration to back off of their thus-far futile Washington backed Regime Change  coup attempts of Madura's Presidency in Venezuela: 

 We call on all parties involved to be calm and rational, and seek a political solution under the Venezuelan constitution through peaceful dialogue. China supports the Venezuela government’s efforts to protect national sovereignty, independence and stability. China has always adhered to the principle of non-interference and objects to external intervention into Venezuela’s internal affairs”. 

Hua Chunying Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson.

Russia also is a heavily involved party in Venezuela: 

Russia has also sank up to $9 Billion dollars into Venezuelan Quicksand 

While Pompeo whines about Putin's "Throwing a Lifeline to the Regime" the Russian Chess Masters clearly have the experience, wisdom, and foresight of skillfully their next sequence of moves, and anticipated countermoves to ride out the temporal Trump Regime of Pompeii on the Potomac; better suited to yet another quick round of golf, on one of the Orangeman's quiver of golf courses; or yet another epic Twitter rant by the Fearless Leader once voted Most likely to remain Sophomoric by his Wharton School of Business peers.

"Russia views its relationship with Caracas as a way to project power into Washington's backyard, according to Alexander Gabuev, a senior fellow at Carnegie Moscow Center, a think tank. Venezuela is a big buyer of Russian weapons. The billions of dollars that Rosneft has invested in Venezuela are an added incentive for Moscow to keep standing by its old ally."   

Naturally Washington's War Hawks, beholden to Wall Street, and the Global Banksters, In Collaboration with the Presstitutes of the American Media Industrial Complex, have now shifted their, as well as collectively our national attention spans, or lack there of to beat the war drums, and sound the Trumpet of yet another Petrodollar Regime Change oil war, and rumors of the pre-staging of as many of 120,000 U.S. Military personal in yet another oil war of against Iran, the birthplace of CIA Regime Change oil wars in 1953.

 How do you think the Brave Volunteer U.S. Petrodollar War machine will do when potentially facing a combined armed forces ultimately totaling up to as much as a 200 Million man army from Russia, China, and Iran aka "The Kings of the East" via China's New and Improved Autobahn the Belt and Road initiative enabling an Armada of Biblical Proportions of highly trained and well equipped Chinese and Russian soldiers from the the North, as well as the East of Tehran that will have Iran's back to swiftly traverse Eurasia via High Speed Rail, as well as along the New Silk Sino Autobahn? 

Oye Vay! "It's Deja Vu, all over again!"
