It is possible that at the end of last year, World War III quietly broke out and hardly anyone noticed. For now, it seems to be contained in small pockets in Syria, Iraq, and Ukraine. More recently though, tensions have begun escalating in the South China Sea as China has started to build islands for military bases in a crucially tactical location.
At first glance, the battles in Syria and Iraq appear to be unrelated to the Russian separatists fighting for control of Crimea and the island-building of China. The reasons behind all of these situations appear on the surface to be local, ideological, and nationalist.
But details have been emerging of who is funding the conflicts. And as always, once you follow the money, you learn what is really going on.
It turns out all of this conflict is over the same thing that nearly every war of the past 70 years has been fought over: energy. It’s the same reason China is building those islands. More than 50% of the global petroleum supply is shipped through the South China Sea.
The top 5 energy companies in the world last year were
When you look at the histories of these companies, you can see that ALL 5 were originally a part of just two companies that were owned by two families. Standard Oil (Exxon, BP, Chevron), owned by the Rockefeller family and Royal Dutch Shell, owned by the Rothschild family.
Last year, Gazprom passed Apple on the list of largest companies on earth. Gazprom is a natural gas company in Russia. One of Gazprom’s partners is the Royal Dutch Shell Oil company. Gazprom and much of the energy industry of the former Soviet Union has been owned and controlled by the Rothschilds for over a hundred years.
It seems unrelated to mention Apple, but it is interesting to note that one of the first venture capital companies to provide Apple with funding was VENROCK, the venture capital arm of the Rockefeller family.
It is also important to note at this point that the father-in-law of John D. Rockefeller was U.S. Senator Nelson Aldrich, the head of the commission that established the Federal Reserve Bank in 1913.
Europe is the world’s largest market for gas. Naturally, Gazprom and Royal Dutch Shell want to supply it. To do that, they need to go through Ukraine and have access to a warm water port (Crimea). That wouldn’t be a problem except that Exxon is well-established in Ukraine already and Exxon also wants to control the supply of gas to Europe. Burisma, one of the largest natural gas companies in Ukraine is a major partner of Exxon and recently appointed Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden to its board of directors.
Exxon controls much of the natural gas of Qatar. Qatar has the world’s 3rd-largest deposits of natural gas. Guess what is blocking Exxon from getting that gas to Europe? Syria.
The Guardian published an article two years ago that the conflict in Syria wasn’t about Chemical Weapons but about supplying energy to Europe: “Assad refused to sign a proposed agreement with Qatar that would run a pipeline from the latter’s North field, contiguous with Iran’s South Pars field, through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and on to Turkey, with a view to supply European markets – albeit crucially bypassing Russia. Assad’s rationale was “to protect the interests of [his] Russian ally, which is Europe’s top supplier of natural gas.”
It started in the Baku oil fields of Azerbaijan– it was one of the largest discoveries of oil in the history of the world and both Rockefeller’s Standard Oil now Exxon and Royal Dutch Shell Oil, controlled by the Rothschilds, wanted to defeat Branobel, a rapidly growing oil company founded by the brother of Alfred Nobel, the inventor of dynamite and the namesake for the Nobel Prize.
The heads of Standard and Shell met secretly at a castle in Achnacarry, Scotland to develop a plan. There, they decided it would be easier for them to control the price and supply of crude if they worked together as a cartel instead of tried to compete with each other. They signed The Achnacarry Agreement which divided up the planet’s oil supplies. What it didn’t divide up was the planet’s oil customers.
The energy supply of Europe is so important because the global economy is undergoing a major transition right now. The petrodollar is dying and it is going to have a huge impact on markets around the world.
At the end of 2014, for the first time since the end of WWII, China surpassed the U.S. in Gross Domestic Product. That means that now the economy of China is the world’s largest.
What does that mean for the U.S.? The strength of the U.S. economy rests on the power of the dollar. And the power of the dollar– the power of any currency– is dependent on its use globally.
In 1944, at the Bretton Woods conference, the major nations of the world gathered to establish the International Monetary Fund and work out a currency exchange agreement where they established the dollar as the global reserve currency. At the time, the dollar was on the gold standard, with a fixed exchange rate of $35 per ounce. It kept the price of gold artificially low while maintaining a demand for dollars. This arrangement worked well for a time but the U.S. economy began to gradually decline in the post-war period. Our GDP eventually fell double digits and the dollar was hit by inflation. Switzerland and France grew fed up with America’s complete control of the global financial system and began selling their dollars for gold. Other countries followed suit.
Then President Nixon banned the exchange of dollars for gold and effectively turned the dollar into a fiat currency.
To keep the dollar from becoming completely worthless, Nixon had to make a deal with Saudi Arabia and other members of OPEC. In exchange for weapons and protection, all OPEC nations could only sell their petroleum for U.S. dollars. It was the invention of the PETRODOLLAR. This arrangement was possible because most of the oil that was not state-owned was already controlled by U.S.-owned subsidiaries of Rockefeller.
It did 2 things to prop up the U.S. economy: the first thing it did was create a perpetual foreign demand for dollars since every country in the world was now forced to keep large reserves of dollars on hand for the purchase of petroleum. The 2nd thing the creation of the petrodollar did was give the U.S. essentially free petroleum since we could now print more dollars whenever we needed to buy more fuel.
And that plan seemed to work…until now…
At the end of last year, while China’s economy was eclipsing ours, the petrodollar quietly died. OPEC countries began to secretly break their deal with the U.S. and sell petroleum for other currencies. In fact, for the first time in 18 years, petrodollar recycling didn’t happen– petrodollar recycling is when OPEC nations earn more from the sale of petroleum than they can feasibly invest back into their own economies– so those petrodollars get “recycled” back into the economies of the U.S. and Europe.
Now, Gazprom has made a deal with China to sell gas and oil for Renminbi.
It is estimated that we’ll see a decline of more than 900 BILLION petrodollars in just the next three years.
With China now having the world’s largest economy and the end of the petrodollar, there’s a need for the international banking and oil cartel to reconfigure the entire reserve currency system, just as they did in Bretton Woods in 1944.
It’s one the biggest news stories of our time but no one wants to talk about it. People don’t like thinking about what it means for the future. Historically, the country with the highest GDP and largest economy has always controlled the global economy.
That’s because the country with the largest economy did the most trade.
Naturally, that meant that the global reserve currency– the currency that most countries held in reserve for conducting trade– was the one of the country with the largest economy. It gave that country the power to mint the coin of the realm.
In the 17th century it was Spain. In the 18th it was France. The 19th was Great Britain.
In the 20th century, it was the United States.
Now, the country with the largest economy in the world is China.
And in 2015 they are making big moves toward establishing the yuan as the new global reserve currency.
This will only mean one thing for the dollar.
And it’s happening later this year.
This October, the International Monetary Fund is being pressured to make a change to the way it lends money and holds currency. The IMF doesn’t just deal in the euro or dollars. The “reserve currency” of the IMF is actually a basket of currencies called the Special Drawing Rights or SDR. It mostly consists of the dollar (41.9%) and the euro (37.4%) but it also includes the British pound (11.3%) and the Japanese yen (9.4%).
The SDR is what the Bank of International Settlements (the BIS) and many other countries use for international transactions because of its stability. The International Monetary Fund uses it to loan to developing countries and there are even some countries that peg the value of their currency to the value of the SDR.
But there is something happening in October of this year that is barely getting any mention in the mainstream news outlets.
The IMF is reorganizing the SDR this year. They have to.
Because China is now the world’s largest economy, the IMF is being forced to include the yuan in the SDR. It is going to shift the balance of the global economy into China’s favor, once and for all. Countries around the world are going to be using the yuan more and more.
That means they are going to have less use for the dollar, which equals more dollars in circulation with less demand.
If you are like most Americans, your IRA or 401K is probably tied up in stocks and bonds that are controlled by a fund manager or investment brokerage. When the global balance of the economy tilts away from the U.S. and the value of the dollar crashes, what do you think will happen to the stock market?
This coming currency shift could be the final nail in the coffin of the dollar.
Billionaire investor George Soros has been telling everyone that will listen that we are on the brink of World War III but it may already be underway. Emails recently leaked that showed that Soros was communicating with the President of Ukraine and that Soros was providing indirect financial support to the conflict.
Even Goldman Sachs is saying to prepare for a coming correction. With the increasing tension with Russia in Ukraine, the growing threat of ISIS, and China’s unilateral establishment of new island air bases in the South China Sea, there are more signs every day that the people who control these energy companies are pushing us toward a global war.
Nearly every major Central Bank in the world has also been doing the one thing they always do before a major war. They are rapidly accumulating gold. China, Russia, India, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, France, and Great Britain have all dramatically ramped up their gold buying in recent years. But guess which two countries have purchased the most gold in the past few years? Russia and China.
It was also recently uncovered that JP Morgan Chase Bank has cornered the silver market. The bank has made historic purchases of silver in recent weeks– the most ever accumulated by a single owner or institution– and many believe the bank now owns enough to effectively control the market and dictate the price. Why would JP Morgan Chase want to accumulate so much silver? What are they preparing for? The bank also recently changed their terms of service to ban the storage of cash and gold coins in safe deposit boxes. It was just the latest move by one of America’s leading financial institutions to eliminate the use of cash.
When you look at the bigger picture: that the major powers of the world– both the great financial institutions and the most powerful countries are all trying to buy gold and silver as fast as they possibly can while frantically securing their energy trade– it is easy to see that something VERY big is happening.
