ARAMCO & The House Of Saud

20121024-192717.jpg

The only thing that was more striking than America’s cynicism- from paranoid right and jaded left alike – toward’s the Arab Spring was this nation’s collective journalistic ignorance about the Middle East region.

Pundits compare revolutionary Iran, where a still-nationalized oil sector has Big Oil licking it’s profit-inflated lips, to Algeria and Yemen, where CIA intrigues installed reactionary governments to replace progressive one’s which opposed the Gulf War in 1991. They compare socialist Syria with US puppet monarchies in Bahrain and Jordan.

There are generally two types of Arab governments in the Middle East. The democratic one’s have been our enemies. The monarchs and dictators have been our friends. And the game has been all about oil.

With 261 billion barrels of crude oil lying beneath its soil, Saudi Arabia remains the lynchpin in the international oil grab presided over by the Rothschild/Rockefeller-controlled Four Horsemen. If revolution in the Middle East really hits its stride, then it must pay a visit upon the most crooked monarchy of all- the House of Saud.

As Joseph Story, Middle East analyst and former ARAMCO executive once said, “Only one factor is involved in where the price of oil is going to go, and that is Saudi Arabia”.

In 1933 Standard Oil Company of California (Socal) negotiated the first oil concession in Saudi Arabia with Saudi Finance Minister Abdullah Sulaiman. The Saudis were to get a 30,000 British pound loan and 5,000 pounds for the first year’s rent, all payable in gold. But US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) had just embargoed gold exports in response to the Great Depression and Socal’s request for an exemption was turned down by FDR’s Secretary of State Dean Acheson.

Socal circumvented the embargo by procuring the gold from the London branch of Morgan Guaranty Trust. When the Saudis asked Socal officials what they should do with their newfound wealth, Socal recommended depositing it at Morgan Guaranty Trust. The Saudis complied.

In 1938 Socal, which later changed its name to Chevron, struck oil in both Saudi Arabia and Qatar and founded the Arabian American Oil Company (ARAMCO). Chevron quickly brought in Standard Oil of New Jersey (later Exxon), Standard Oil of New York (later Mobil) and Texaco as partners. This American half of the Four Horsemen would grow ARAMCO into the largest oil company in the world, nearly three times the size of Royal Dutch/Shell.

The Gulf Cooperation Council: Rockefeller/Rothschild Puppet Monarchy

It shouldn’t have surprised anyone when the six nations which make up the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) called on their Western protectors to enforce a no-fly zone in the skies over Libya last year. Why would these Arab nations- Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, UAE, Oman and Qatar- clamor for an act of war against another Arab oil-producer? A brief history of the GCC is in order.

The Iranian Revolution of 1979 was a watershed event. With the Shah deposed and the Iranian Consortium nationalized, the Four Horsemen- Exxon Mobil, Chevron Texaco, BP Amoco and Royal Dutch/Shell- and their Rockefeller/Rothschild owners sought to create a more comprehensive security system for the safeguarding of Persian Gulf crude oil. The House of Saud was fast becoming a lightning rod for Arab nationalists, who saw the monarchy as a Western surrogate.

The State Department sought to take pressure off the Saudis by finding other regional leaders willing to embrace the same oil for arms quid pro quo that had been in force in the Kingdom since the early 1950’s. That arrangement involves the US arming the House of Saud to protect it from enemies both foreign and domestic. In return the Saudis serve as “swing producer”, ensuring the West a steady and relatively cheap supply of oil. While US spook outfits like SAIC, Booz Hamilton, TRW and Vinnell Corp. trained the Saudi National Guard, Pakistani and Egyptian pilots (Saudi nationals were not to be trusted) were trained to fly US F-15 fighters in protection of the Kingdom. The Saudis in turn became the primary funder of CIA/MI6/Mossad covert operations worldwide, including those aimed at Libya from bases in Exxon Mobil-controlled Chad.

The Eight Families’ Rigged Oil Game

20121002-195524.jpg

(Excerpted from Chapter 7: The Four Horsemen: Big Oil & Their Bankers…)

After World War II – during which Royal Dutch Shell Chairman Sir Henry Deterding loudly supported the Nazis, while Exxon and Texaco collaborated with the Nazi I.G. Farben combine – the Four Horsemen turned their full attention to the Middle East. There the cartel operated under names like Iranian Consortium, Iraqi Petroleum Company and ARAMCO.

With the rise of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) as a producer cartel, the companies devised increasingly sophisticated ways to diminish OPEC’s collective bargaining ability.

Nationalistic governments were destabilized, discredited and overthrown by the CIA at the behest of Big Oil. Henry Kissinger set up his International Energy Agency (IEA), which the French called a machine de guerre.

Both Nixon’s Twin Pillars Policy and Reagan’s Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) were efforts to divide OPEC between wealthy banker nations and poor industrializing nations, with the Saudis playing the key role of swing producer in both schemes.

As oil trader George Perk once commented of the Four Horsemen/Saudi relationship, “The oil markets are not free markets. Oil company officials bribe officials in Saudi Arabia. They only get into the market for a fix.”

Following the Gulf War Jordan’s King Hussein commented of the Saudi role in diminishing OPEC’s bargaining power, “At the grassroots level, long-submerged feelings of resentment on the part of most Arabs toward the Saudis are now out of the bottle. We resent the fact that they buy everything – technology, protection, ideas, people, respectability… the Arab people are saying that the US and Saudi Arabia are indistinguishable, and from this they conclude that the Saudis are backing Israel. Have the Saudis no shame?”

Big Green Oil Money: WWF founded and ran by Royal Dutch-Shell

If any person or group dares to question the great global warming and climate change orthodoxy, green clerics will first attempt to discredit them, normally by leaping across the table and pointing the finger of shame right in their face, exclaiming, “You’re funded by Big Oil!”

That makes it all the more ironic when you consider who first funded, and later ran the great global flag ship for the modern green movement…

Donna Laframboise‘s recent article entitled, The WWF’s Vast Pool of Oil Money chronicles the rise the globalist green charity – seeded with funding from global petroleum giant Royal Dutch Shell, who’s former President of 15 years, John Loudon, later served as president of WWF International for four years after that.

In 1961 Shell Oil forked-out the handsome sum of £10,000 to help found WWF-UK, money that in today’s terms equates to £418,000 – or $663,000 (see the historical calculator here).

But that’s only the beginning. WWF continued to ride the wave of oil cash for the next 40 years – from giants like BP, Shell and others, until the year 2000.

Not surprisingly, self-appointed socialist technocrats at Greenpeace dictate on their own website that the idea of free speech no longer applies when it comes to the climate debate, and will often attack climate skeptics based on their alleged connections to ‘Big Oil’. According to that green charity:

“There’s a difference between free speech and a campaign to deny the climate science with the goal of undermining international action on climate change… Freedom of speech does not apply to misinformation and propaganda.”

Their own militant stance makes it all the more interesting that Greenpeace itself is funded by Standard Oil money, and so is Sierra Club – according to the watchdog website Activist Cash. See for yourself:

Rockefeller Brothers Foundation
Greenpeace $1,080,000.00 1997 – 2005
Sierra Club $710,000.00 1995 – 2001
ACORN $10,000.00 2002 – 2002

Rockefeller Family Fund
Greenpeace $115,000.00 2002 – 2005
Sierra Club $105,000.00 1996 – 2002
ACORN $25,000.00 1998 – 1998
Rockefeller Foundation
Greenpeace $20,285.00 1996 – 2001
Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors
Sierra Club $38,250.00 1997 – 2000

Suffice to say that the neither of these champions of climate change and global government – the WWF and Greenpeace, would exist without all that juicy Big Oil Money.
One last inconvenient truth should be mentioned here. The unofficial leader of the global warmist movement, Al Gore, is also heavily invested in, and is doing massive deals with – Big Oil.

Estimates put Gore’s wealth holdings in Occidental Petroleum upwards of $500,000 in stocks and shares, which stands to reason why Gore fixed up the deal to sell the US Naval Oil Reserve to Occidental Petroleum in a no bid contract.

Still, so many people admire Al Gore so for all wonderful his ‘envronmental credentials’. Or could it just be a case of the bland leading the blind?
