“It’s not just a one-year blip…declines continue to get bigger…”: U.S. government shenanigans, December 2017

Incomplete (i-e ‘Tip of the Iceberg’) list of U.S. Federal/State/Local Government self-destruct announcements for December 2017:

New York Magazine: How Wealthy People Use the Government to Enrich Themselves

Washington Post: How to score big at government auctions

NPR: States Say They Need Federal Government’s Help To Secure Midterm Elections

Associated Press: Global Cooling Requires More Government Money

According to CNBC there are only 13 U.S. cities where you can actually survive on government mandated minimum wage, barely.

Arizona: In Tucson, after 30 years Las Margaritas shutdown the day before Xmas, due to the owner selling off the property because the city is planning a road project that will impact the property.

California: The Los Angeles Times reports that Santa can’t fix these problems with California’s state government.  Taxpayers in Redwood City will be paying for a new home for the YMCA (Young Men’s Christian Association) as city leaders will let the religious organization use a new city funded building complex, as part of some plan to create ‘green spaces’ in the city.

Colorado:  It’s been revealed that state legislators have forgotten a very important part of the taxpayer funded budget for 2018, according to the gov’na there’s not one cent from General Funds allocated for the most obvious of infrustructures; roads and bridges! 

Connecticut: The city of New London has criminally charged its first victim of its new expanded blight laws, for having a huge bamboo grove on his property.   Despite cash strapped voters rejecting three previous city budgets due to jacked-up taxes, the city of Morris is submitting a fourth budget which again includes tax increases, to be voted on in January 2018.

Florida:  Now former congresswoman Democrat Corrine Brown to spend five years in federal prison for helping to raise more than $800-thousand USD for a bogus charity that she used as her personal account.  Manatee County warning that within three years 5-hundred of its employees will be retiring, creating a burden on the county’s retirement funds. Mmmmm, what happened to those retirement funds? County officials are also launching a scare campaign telling local taxpayers they can’t find enough potential employees to replace those who are retiring.

Georgia:  Cash strapped voters in the city of Roswell are so upset with their city’s secretive budget process that city leaders promise to hold two classes openly explaining the budget, in 2018.

Idaho:    In the town of Heyburn two candidates tied in the November elections, by state law a coin toss was held to decide the outcome, however, the loser of the coin toss demanded a hand recount of the votes and low-and-behold that candidate had actually won the election by one vote!  Turns out the one ballot that decided the election was marked so lightly that the machine, which did the original count, couldn’t read it.     The gov’na of The Gem State Butch Otter, released emails criticizing his appointment to fill vacant spots in the state House.  The emails from taxpayers claim the process used by the gov’na violates state law and Idaho Republican Party rules.  Gov’na Otter said he made the appointments to meet the statutory deadline of December 30.

Illinois: State lottery computer services company GTECH-Northstar Lottery Group eliminating 61 jobs in January 2018, due to loss of contract.   A tow truck driver for the city of Chicago sentenced to nine years in prison for offering to illegally release impounded vehicles in exchange for bribes, his wife got 24 months probation for her role in the scam.   Evil government identification computer systems designer France owned-U.S. taxpayer funded MorphoTrust USA (OT-Morpho) issued a shutdown WARN for its Springfield location, 74 jobs gone in February 2018.  Once again, Illinois set another record for the most residents fleeing any U.S. state; 33-thousand-7-hundred people fled for their economic lives from July 2016 to July 2017, according to the U.S. Census Bureau!  Analysts say it’s only getting worse: “It’s not just a one-year blip. And the declines continue to get bigger from one year to the next.”-William Frey, Brookings Institution

Iowa: DuPont Pioneer suddenly laid off an undisclosed number of employees, as a result of the DuPont-Dow Chemical merger.  Local news media reminded taxpayers that state leaders gave DuPont a $17-million USD as an incentive to maintain 2-thousand-6-hundred jobs in the state.  Taxpayers are now burdened by state and local government debts totaling $15.9-billion USD!   And that’s considered among the lowest debt levels (versus GDP) of any U.S. state!   The state Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship began a taxpayer funded three years program to subsidize the increased use of ‘cover crops’ and improve water quality: “There is no other incentive like this in the entire country, so we’re really happy that the state of Iowa is breaking ground on this new incentive.”-Aaron Lehman, Iowa Farmers Union

Michigan:  Vice News reports Detroit’s housing crisis is the work of its own government.  The city of Flint is once again in ‘hot water’ due to accusations of failing to comply with a settlement which required the city to replace contaminated water lines within three years. 

Minnesota: Without warning McNally Smith College of Music shutdown one week before Xmas, due to massive Disappearing Students Syndrome.  State education administrators say they’ll help the 4-hundred affected students, meaning taxpayers are being stuck with dealing with the non-profit’s shutdown.  MinnPost reminding you of The 5 most important local government stories of 2017 that you probably already forgot.

Mississippi: The city of Meridian is challenging Lauderdale County’s 9-1-1 service charges, in one case there is evidence of multiple billings for a single ambulance call.

Missouri: King Cash Saver shutdown its Mount Vernon grocery store saying that despite a decent volume of sales it’s not enough to keep up with the cost of the city supplied utilities, which is as much as 40% higher than other areas of the state (city officials swore to local news media that their utility rate was “competitive”).   Despite violent crime for the entire U.S. being at a 30 years low, Kansas City experienced an explosion of violence in 2017 making it one of the most murderous cities.  One report says at least 207 people were killed.  

Montana: Orwellian sounding national mentoring program Big Brothers Big Sisters warning of shutdown in Helena due to state taxpayer funding cuts and dwindling donations.  Federal taxpayer funding has already been cut.   The state government says the 2018 budget is smaller due to crashing tax revenues.

New York:  Mark’s Pizzeria announced the shutdown of dozens of restaurants across The Empire State, due to the new state mandated minimum wage which affects any restaurant chain with 30 or more locations!   ReEnergy wood-chip fired power plant in Lyonsdale shutting down due to the expiration of its contract with New York State Energy and Research Development Authority.  More proof that relying on federal tax money will doom local governments to failure; the city of Newburgh warning that as many as 70 firefighters could become unemployed in 2018 due to the expiration of a federal grant.  A New York Times investigation revealed that the NYC subway project is now The Most Expensive Mile of Subway Track on Earth.  Investigators found multiple reasons for taxpayer screwing cost overruns as far back as 2010, yet only now are they being revealed.  Some of those cost overruns are unexplained, like two hundred more employees than were supposed to officially be on the payroll who were being paid outrageous wages: “Nobody knew what those people were doing, if they were doing anything. All we knew is they were each being paid about $1,000 every day.”-Michael Horodniceanu, formerly with Metropolitan Transportation Authority

Ohio: Licking County Transit Operation eliminating 48 jobs in January 2018, due to the cancellation of a contract.

Pennsylvania:  After 199 years of producing food, and surviving numerous recessions and The Great Depression, the Stewart family farm could be shutdown because of a multi-state electricity power line project!

Texas:  A federal judge is allowing the city of Houston to begin its new anti-homeless police state-ism law.  The city created the law in April, which was challenged by the ACLU.  The federal judge threw out the ACLU’s temporary restraining order against the city.  Yeah, fight homelessness not by creating good paying jobs, but by criminalizing homelessness.  After ten years Austin’s Flying Saucer Draught Emporium shutdown, the owner blames ‘elected’ lawmakers saying “The landscape of the restaurant industry is changing rapidly across the nation, and unfortunately, the Texas beer industry was introduced to topsy-turvy legislation…” 

Washington DC: The Chicago Tribune reports Trump administration rescinding fracking rules on government land.  The Wall Street Journal discovered that about 40% of comments about Net Neutrality posted on the Federal Communications Commission’s website, as well as comments posted on other government websites, were fake!

Government Shenanigans, November 2017:“THE PEOPLE…WILL NEVER, NEVER FIND A BETTER JOB…”



“They gave me no reason for closing it”: U.S. government shenanigans, July 2017

Incomplete list of U.S. Federal/State/Local Government self-destruct announcements for July 2017:

Alabama: Finally! Gov’na Kay Ivey banned the appointing of registered lobbyists to serve on state boards and commissions.  It was revealed that more than 1-hundred money grubbing lobbyists are directly controlling taxpayer funded boards and commissions.

California:  In overrated and corrupt Santa Barbara, after 33 years East Beach Grill shutdown by the greedy landlord (which is the Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation Department).  Santa Barbara leaders want to spend $16-million tax dollars renovating the area into a giant waterfront park!  The restaurant owner told local news media that the city said he could re-open once the new park was built, but only if he paid at least double the rent.  San Diego Superior Court warned of mass layoffs due to the loss of $6-million USD of taxpayer funding.  Reportedly 60 employees volunteered to accept bribes to quit (buyouts).   In San Diego, British empire based U.S. tax-sucking BAE Systems eliminating more than 3-hundred jobs in September, due to the U.S. Navy changing the way it hires contractors!

Idaho: A freedom of information request by Times-News-magicvalley.com revealed that U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) is considering Jerome as the site of a new taxpayer funded immigrant prison!   It’s the result of ICE loosing access to a 3-hundred bed prison in Utah.  ICE is hoping to use the existing Jerome County Detention Center, and expand it by 60 beds.  The Times-News estimated it would cost U.S. taxpayers $1.4-million USD per year to operate an immigrant prison in Idaho.  Another newspaper, Spokesman-Review, reported that hundreds of Idahoans are protesting the plans for an immigrant prison in their back yard.

Illinois: Cook County Public Defender’s Office eliminating 68 jobs, most are attorneys meant to represent the individuals charged with crimes.  It’s being blamed on the new soda pop tax which is in limbo after being challenged in court, apparently the county was hoping to use the soda tax to fund public defender operations.  The challenged soda tax is also being blamed for the sudden layoff of 3-hundred county employees!  Supposedly ‘elected’ county officials also sent out 1-thousand-1-hundred layoff notices!  You know a county is in trouble when it’s relying on the creation of new tax to save its sorry ass!  Cook County’s soda tax is one cent for every ounce of so called sweetened drink.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture is challenging the tax because it violates SNAP rules. Chicago, located within Cook County, also has a soda tax.  Coupled with the county tax ‘sugary’ drinks in Chicago will become the most expensive in the U.S.  Metro East Sanitary District suddenly laid off 20 people, possibly due to a $2.6-million USD loss in 2016.


Michigan: In Troy, tax-sucking Lockheed Martin-Sikorsky laying off 160 people as production of U.S. Navy Seahawk helicopters comes to an end!  However, I discovered that Lockheed Martin-Sikorsky is ramping up production of Blackhawk ‘copters after getting $5-billion USD in orders.

New Jersey:  In Watchung after 22 years, and despite posting a month worth of events for July, iconic Colorado Cafe suddenly announced a shutdown.  It’s being blamed on city leaders who needed the property to expand a quarry (rock mine).  After a state government shutdown, including public beaches, gov’na Chris Christie was seen enjoying a day at the beach. The state legislature responded by banning all future governors from the beach during government shutdowns! 

New Mexico:  Good news or bad news? The Torrance County Detention Facility shutting down due to lack of prisoners, 203 jobs gone by September!

New York: The evil left-wing Empire State forcing 70 years old Angel’s Inn Adult Home to shutdown, vaguely saying the retirement home was violating new regulations, the owner Mary Allen says the state never clarified what those new rules are “They gave me no reason for closing it. Other homes were closing. I didn’t have an administrator at one time, but I got an administrator.”  Local news media said the greedy state responded to their questions by saying the issues could be resolved with money!  On top of that, if the retirement home doesn’t shutdown by October then the owner will be hit with fines.

Oklahoma: The city of Pryor warned all employees of layoffs, blaming crashing sales tax collections.  City leaders want cash strapped taxpayers to approve a new sales tax increase.

Pennsylvania: Lancaster County SPCA suddenly went bust due to lack of funding, local municipalities (taxpayers) will now have to come up with a new system for handling stray animals.

Tennessee: Taxpayers are about to become the de-facto owners of a vacant Kmart property near Antioch.  Nashville Mayor Megan Barry wants to spend $7.45-million tax dollars to use the former Kmart as a new Metro Police command center. 

Texas: Tax-sucking Prison contractor CoreCivic issued a layoff WARN for more than 5-hundred employees after losing a Department of Criminal Justice contract!

Puerto Rico: Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority bankrupt busted with $9-billion in debt.

Washington DC: The Department of Veterans Affairs has eliminated 5-hundred jobs since January!

Government Shenanigans June 2017: “AMERICA’S MOST MESSED-UP STATE”


Dumbing Down the U.S. of A., July 2017:

What Economic Recovery? Most main stream U.S. media ignoring reports that thousands of small banks will fail, analyst blame the status quo! All part of the IMF’s orders to deleverage!

On 08 November 2012, there was a conference, put on by Mergermarket, in which analysts warned that the 7,000 small banks left in the United States could soon be reduced to just a few hundred.

The analyst, many of whom work for the Too Big to Fail banks, said that at least half of all small banks are in trouble money wise, and that at least 2,000 need to be sold (read ‘taken over by the big banks’).  The analysts said the whole process will take another ten years to complete!

The analysts also tried to blame it on the elections, saying it’s for certain the Dodd-Frank rules will become permanent.

One of the results of the destruction of the small banks is that it will reduce the availability of loans by 10%.  Regardless of the election results, this actually sounds like an attempt to meet the orders of the International Monetary Fund, and World Bank, in deleveraging the country.

A CNN/Money/Fortune analyst pointed out that it’s actually the Too Big to Fail Banks who dominate the loan market, about 90%!  Also, because of this loan monopoly by the Big Banks, their outrageous interest rates and fees are costing consumers (those who can get credit) an estimated $100 billion per year!

Since it’s the Too Big to Fails who dominate the loan/credit market, perhaps this is their way to avoid complying with the IMF and World Bank orders to deleverage, by using a red herring argument to shift attention onto the more consumer friendly small banks (plus they get to kill off even more competition)?

“I’d say that’s pretty good evidence that we should figure out a way to keep small banks around.”-Stephen Gandel


Voter Incompetence & What Economic Recovery? Your elected officials spent $6 billion to get you to vote to maintain the status quo! Election monitor says election process defective! Black Sabbath is right!

“…there are real concerns over issues such as voting rights, the accuracy of voter lists, the transparency of campaign finance, recount procedures and access for international election observers.”-Daan Everts, Head of the OSCE/ODIHR Limited Election Observation Mission

So the big concern is over the looming automatic austerity measures/fiscal cliff? If that’s so, then why did the political leaders of the United States spend at least $5.8 billion USD tricking the voters into maintaining the status quo?

According to the U.S. main stream media, U.S. voters picked the same president, same Congressional House and same Congressional Senate (political party wise)!  So much for Hope & Change/Real Change!

Just think what that $5.8 billion could have been used for!  “You’re all fools! the Mob rules!”-Black Sabbath, 1981


Economic Recovery or Civil War? Gun sales in the U.S. expected to skyrocket

07 November 2012, the day after the main stream U.S. media prematurely declared Barack Obama the new President (the Shadow Voters, aka Electoral College, vote to elect the President on 17 December 2012), investors are driving up stock prices for gun makers and those chain stores that sell guns.

Investment analysts say it because investors expect a run on guns, because many supporters of the Second Amendment think a re-elected Obama will result in more gun control laws.

That might be, but there could be another reason: Civil War.

Back in August a Texas judge warned that if Obama was re-elected there would be civil war:   “…he’s going to try to give the sovereignty of the United States away to the United Nations. What do you think the public is going to do when that happens? We are talking civil unrest, civil disobedience, possibly, possibly civil war, OK? Now what happens? What happens? Now I’m not talking just talking riots here and there. I’m talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms, get rid of the dictator. OK, what do you think he is going to do when that happens? He is going to call in the UN troops, personnel carriers, tanks and weapons.”-Tom Head, Lubbock County judge and Emergency Management Coordinator

Seemingly in response, on 06 November several so called Liberals stated on Twitter things like “Vote for Mitt Romney… It’ll better our chances to start a civil war”, “If Romney win second civil war”, “Lady in the polling line say if romney win its gone b a civil war”, “Goin buy a gun tommorow Cus if Romney win I ain’t goin out without a fight”, “If Mitt Romney win get ya gun game up” etc.

Note the pro-gun statements by so called liberals.  Here in Idaho, Democrats are just as supportive of the Second Amendment as their Republican neighbors, and the same can be said of most Idahoans who don’t claim a political party preference.   Maybe that’s why the main stream anti-gun rights north-eastern based & focused U.S. media assume all Idahoans are Republicans?



What Democracy? Rogue ballot counter caught ‘Red’ handed changing ballot results!

Just a few days before the 06 November 2012 elections, officials in Oregon revealed that a Clackamas County ballot counter was altering submitted ballots!

On 05 November, the Willamette Week published an article in which the accused Oregon City woman admitted to them that she changed at least two ballots.

However, government officials say they’re not sure how many ballots were changed, and they pointed out that the accused began working as a ballot counter back in 2000.   The woman is being investigated after an election official caught her ‘red’ handed in the process of changing ballots.

And what was she changing the mailed in ballot results to?  Why, to favor Republican candidates!  Most likely Republican party officials will disavow any knowledge of the election fraud, and claim she’s a rogue ballot counter.


What Democracy? The late great George Carlin was right! If you vote it’s your fault!!!

“I have solved this political dilemma in a very direct way: I don’t vote. On Election Day, I stay home. I firmly believe that if you vote, you have no right to complain. Now, some people like to twist that around. They say, ‘If you don’t vote, you have no right to complain,’ but where’s the logic in that? If you vote, and you elect dishonest, incompetent politicians, and they get into office and screw everything up, you are responsible for what they have done. You voted them in. You caused the problem. You have no right to complain. I, on the other hand, who did not vote, who did not even leave the house on Election Day, am in no way responsible for what these politicians have done and have every right to complain about the mess that YOU created.-George Carlin

People of the United States finally realizing that working hard does not improve your life, it only improves the life of the Man!

“The U.S. ranks outside of the top ten for the first time (down to 12th), pulled down primarily by a decline in the Entrepreneurship & Opportunity sub-index. This fall is driven by a decline in the number of U.S. citizens who
believe that hard work will get them ahead……”-2012 Legatum Prosperity Index

According to a recent study by the Legatum Institute, fewer and fewer U.S. citizens believe that hard work pays off.

I can attest to that, after three decades of busting my ass, doing my best, and I have almost nothing to show for it (I am still better off than those who’ve ended up on the streets).

I’ve been praised by employers for my attention to detail, organizing and people management skills. Yet when it came to getting a significant raise or promotion, forget it! I got zip, nada!

I’ve worked positions that required four year college degrees, only to be replaced with a college graduate, then ordered to train them!!!  I finally got a four year college degree, but now (that plus my 30 years work experience) I’m “overqualified” (and I still have to somehow pay for the student loans).

What I’ve learned working for unAmerican Corporate America, is that when it comes down to the bottom line (meaning the execs and shareholders are facing a loss of dividends or bonuses) it doesn’t matter how hard you worked for the company (or even if you can prove you’re making money for the company as happened to me in several cases), if they decide it’s time for you to go, you’re gone!

Government & Corporate Incompetence, World War 3 & What Economic Recovery? United States not even part the top ten most prosperous countries! War on Terror makes the U.S. insecure!

According to the Legatum Institute, the United States not only is not the most prosperous country anymore, it’s not even in the top ten!

The United States was considered the 10th most prosperous last year, but in 2012 the U.S. is now ranked 12th overall!

The Legatum Institute ranks 142 nations in eight sub-indexes: economy, entrepreneurship and opportunity, governance, education, health, safety and security, personal freedom and social capital.

According to their 2012 Prosperity Index, the U.S. now ranks 2nd in health, 5th in education, 10th in governance, 10th in social capital, 12th in entrepreneurship and opportunity, 14th in personal freedom, 20th in economy, and despite more than a decade of War on Terror 27th in safety and security (seems the war has actually made the U.S. more unsafe)!

The top 10 most prosperous countries are: Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Finland, Netherlands, Switzerland and Ireland.  (notice that most of these are in Europe where the economy is supposed to be worse than the U.S., many of these countries have strong labor unions and more worker rights than the U.S.)

White Horse, Black Horse & World War 3: Western oil embargoes not about Iran’s nuclear industry, or controling the oil itself, it’s all about controling the international oil market (the Beast). We the People are the losers, the Global Oil Industry is the winner.

I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.

…there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a day’s wages, and three quarts of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!”

In 1971 U.S. President Richard Nixon (a Republican Christian) stopped using gold to back up the value of the U.S. dollar.  This was because the rest of the world figured out a way around the global domination of the gold backed U.S. dollar, by buying up U.S. gold.  It was causing problems for the U.S. domestic economy.

In 1973 the Arab members of OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) embargoed oil to the United States, officially in retaliation of U.S. support for Israel, but more because OPEC wanted to better control the price of oil.  You see, after Nixon took the dollar off the gold standard, other countries followed suit.  The result was that money lost value big time, so much so that OPEC wanted to take gold for oil, instead of cash.

Nixon to the rescue, again.  In back room meetings, literally, the Nixon administration made a deal with Saudi Arabia: They could have more say in the price of oil if buyers were forced to use the U.S. dollar (now you know why we’re in the pockets of the Saudis).

…and that no man might buy or sell, save he had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

This is where the term petrodollars comes from.  The deal involves the New York Mercantile Exchange (aka NYMEX, aka Commodities Exchange.  Now controlled by CME Group), and London’s International Petroleum Exchange, or IPE (now you know why the British Empire, our mortal enemy, is tied to the United States).

Canada has their own petrodollars, and it might be the real reason their desire to build a pipeline (called Keystone) through the U.S. was recently shot down by President Barack Obama (a Democrat Christian).  You see Obama really is a U.S. oil man (forget all that ‘protecting the environment’ BS), and Canada don’t trade their oil for U.S. dollars (they have their own dollar thank you very much). But since Canada is part of the British Empire we don’t go to war with them, yet.

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause as many as would not worship the beast should be killed.

Now for the real reason we invaded Iraq: Saddam Hussein refused to worship the beast.  He started taking Euros instead of going through the U.S. dollar controlled NYMEX, or the IPE.  Iraq never had a military, or enough allies to counter any military attack by the United States, so we invaded and had him humiliated and hung.

Iraq was never tied to al Qaeda, in fact it was Saddam who kept bin Laden and his types out of Iraq.  Iraq never had weapons of mass destruction, that was proven before we invaded, during the invasion and after the invasion.

It wasn’t even about the Iraqi oil itself.  Just look at the lack of U.S. oil companies now involved with pumping Iraqi oil. It was all about maintaining U.S. global hegemony through the forced use of U.S. petrodollars.

In 2006, Ron Paul (a true conservative Republican Christian) wrote about how the whole War on Terror was an excuse for the U.S./U.K. petrodollar system (the beast), and its political supporters (including those who think it’s God’s Will that we dominate), to maintain dominance over the world.

Libya: Qaddafi refused to worship the beast. He made deals with the Russians and Chinese, circumventing the U.S. Petrodollar. It had nothing to do with ‘democracy’.  Just look at what’s happening their now, and who controls the oil?

Unfortunately for Qaddafi Russia and China didn’t feel backing him up was worth it, so the U.S. and NATO backed up the mercenary armies, who beat a shot Qaddafi to death while they streamed it to the world on their cell phones.  This after Qaddafi did everything the British and U.S. wanted him to do, in order to become ‘legitimate’ and have President Bush Jr remove Libya from the rogue nation terrorist list!

Pakistan refuses to worship the beast.  The real reason there’s warmonger talk against Pakistan by our officials is because they buy their oil from Iran.  It’s not about the War on Terror, after all, the Pakistani army has lost more troops, police and civilians fighting the Taliban than we have!

Syria refuses to worship the beast.  They control major oil pipelines running from Iraq and Iran to the Mediterranean.  Iranian oil companies operate in Syria. The U.S. supported violence (the Free Syrian Army admits they are supported by the U.S. and Israel) is not about ‘democracy’!

Iran is not only refusing to worship the beast, but is standing up to it. Iran actually has a powerful, self reliant and up to date military.  They have powerful allies like Russia and China.  They also have created the world’s first oil trading market that takes anything but U.S. dollars for oil.  Yes they even barter for their oil.  A recent report in the Israeli media says Iran, India and China are about to start trading oil for gold (just like the Saudis wanted to do back in 1973).

The U.S. is walking on egg shells in regards to Iran.  So far all the threats from our government are just hot air.  Russia and China have made it clear they will support Iran.  Russian officials have even said that Syria is the red line the the U.S. must not cross.

Now the U.S. is attempting back room deals with countries like Pakistan and China.  Several reports say U.S. officials are trying to get the Pakistanis to give up cheap Iranian natural gas, in exchange for cheap U.S. natural gas.  Similar offers are being made to China for natural gas, oil and refined fuel.  Not only will such deals benefit the U.S. oil industry, it will help the U.S. dollar because they’ll have to use it to buy our stuff.  It’s hoped such deals will also isolate Iran’s oil industry, and destroy their successful oil market.

U.S. petroleum products are now the number one export of the United States.  This means controlling the ‘market’ is even more important.  Price is everything and what the U.S. is doing will only drive up prices.

It’s clear why the U.S. would embargo Iranian oil; ’cause it will drive up prices, which is what our oil industry puppet leaders want.  What about Europe? The EU finally agreed to embargo new oil deals with Iran, but several European oil industry leaders say it will be disastrous for their industry (Note: British Petroleum is exempt from the EU embargo. Remember, most of the British Empire is involved with U.S. petrodollars).

On January 28, Bloomberg media reported that Italy will see at least 70 refineries shut down because of the EU embargo.  Iran says it could stop all oil sales to Europe.  But this is what the U.S. petrodollar lovers want, because it will drive up prices.  The U.S. created International Monetary Fund said there will be an instant 20-30% increase in oil prices.  Iranian officials say oil will almost instantly jump to $150 per barrel.

This is a losing situation for us average Joes, but when you think about it, it’s a win-win for the oil industry!

If the U.S. is successful in destroying Iran’s independent oil market, then there is a list of other countries who could be next.  Cuba, they have oil and they don’t take U.S. dollars (why you think Romney and Gingrich, both claim to be Christians,  said they would bomb Cuba if they became President?).  Venezuela don’t take U.S. dollars, why you think we tried to kill Hugo Chavez?  Ecuador; did you even know there’s been attempted U.S. supported rebellions there?  China, they’ve been making oil for infrastructure improvement deals that allow them to get around the petrodollar beast.

By the way if you research who attacked the United States on September 11, 2001, you’ll see it did not involve anyone from Afghanistan or Iraq.  It involved mainly people from the Arabian Peninsula (and one person from Egypt, one person from Lebanon), not one Iraqi, not one Afghan.   The bin Laden family is from the Arabian Peninsula, not Iraq, not Afghanistan!  The October 12, 2000, attack on the USS Cole was done by people from the Arabian Peninsula (it actually took place on the Arabian Peninsula).  Yet, a Federal judge, under the Bush Jr administration, ruled that the African country Sudan was to blame!

It’s obvious that those who’ve been attacking the United States are from the Arab Peninsula (mainly Saudi Arabia), yet we don’t dare attack them. Why? Because they’re part of the petrodollar beast that was created back in 1973!!!
