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!!!
