Communism was created and is controlled by the gluttonous Power Elite. Russia, because it was a treasure trove of untapped oil resources, needed a revolution, a political coup. The Czar and his family were murdered; it was planned and financed by the Schiffs, the Warburgs and the Rothschilds who directed the activities of Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin. [1] The Power Elite have, through their machinations, secretly sponsors a majority of the world’s tyrants. The dictators, Hitler and Mussolini, were financed during the 1920-1930s by international bankers, including the regional banks that comprise the Federal Reserve System, the criminal cabal in partnership with the U.S. government.


“Communism was a hoax perpetrated by financiers ‘to control the common man’ and to advance world tyranny. The Communist Party operates by infiltrating and subverting social institutions like the churches, schools, mass media and government. Its aim was ‘to create new types of human beings who would conform to the blueprint of the world they confidently expected to control.’” [2]


In 1919 when industrial nations were carving up nations for the competing firms of Standard, Shell, and British Petroleum, M. Henri Berenger, a future Ambassador to Washington gave the following warning in a memorandum: “He who owns the oil will own the world, for he will rule the sea by means of the heavy oils, the air by means of the ultra refined oils, and the land by means of petrol and the illuminating oils. And in addition to these he will rule his fellow men in an economic sense, by reason of the fantastic wealth he will derive from oil—the wonderful substance which is more sought after and more precious today than gold itself.” [3]


The Power Elite look for certain unscrupulous characteristics in their potential political pawns: opportunistic, dishonorable, manipulative, ruthless, conscienceless and indifferent to the consequences of their actions; they must be willing to totally subvert established laws that define individual freedoms and be prepared to turn their countries into tyrannical police states using newly-created Gestapo-style enforcement agencies. These candidates must also be hypocritical enough to conceal these traits when necessary. Effective speech writers provide counterfeit, charisma-deficient "deciders” a modicum of credibility. Hitler said: “The broad masses of a population are more amenable to the appeal of rhetoric than to any other force.” Power Elite handlers make the real decisions.


Most puppets are intoxicated with, among other things, self importance and the tangible symbols of their bogus authority, like being commander-in-chief of the military minions who are verbally manipulated into sacrificing their lives in countries targeted by the Power Elite. Americans, who have experienced a degree of freedom, are particularly susceptible to the emotional, “democracy card” rhetoric against alleged dictators. Understandably, those unfortunate Americans who have experienced fewer choices are often the very first individuals to challenge unwarranted military actions against other vulnerable citizens. They frequently receive lengthy jail sentences for their views.


Some leaders unexpectedly displease their backers by pursuing personal or even national objectives actually beneficial to their citizens but contrary to Power Elite objectives. They are denigrated, reclassified as enemies and eliminated: to be replaced by more obedient pawns. The CIA-financed, well-trained tyrant, Saddam Hussein, infamous for his use of chemical weapons, provided by U.S. corporations through Pentagon contracts, disappointed his backers with his ambitious oil production policy. Ultimately captured, Hussein was immediately tried, repeatedly muffled and then executed.


Hussein intended to expand oil production! “Iraq alone has the third largest oil reserves on the planet – accounting for 10% of the world total. Iraq is also reckoned to have the world’s largest unexplored potential, primarily in the Western Desert.” In addition, “Iraq is estimated to have between 100 and 200 billion barrels of further possible, as yet undiscovered, reserves.” [4] Iraq has “112 billion proven barrels” and the “second largest reserves in OPEC after Saudi Arabia. Iraq has fewer than three thousand operating wells compared to one million in Texas.” Iraq has 74 known fields and only 15 in production. Iraq has 526 known structures, pools of oil, and only 125 have been drilled. [5]


In the first Gulf War, the Basra oil fields were targeted and deliberately demolished by American B-52s. [6] That war failed to pressure Hussein into compliance. Economic sanctions were imposed – hundreds of thousands died – mostly children. Those sanctions also banned oil exportation, maintaining OPEC oil prices and quotas. Hussein was obstinate. Another invasion occurred in March 2003. The U.S. now occupies Iraq. The Oil Ministry remains the only facility under constant U.S. military protection. Meanwhile state libraries and museums, containing irreplaceable antiquities and Iraq’s cultural heritage, were/are wantonly destroyed or confiscated.


The major oil companies are represented by the International Tax & Investment Centre (ITIC), a corporate lobby group established in 1993. [7] A quarter of their 110 sponsors are from the oil industry. Their Board of Directors hosts representatives from Shell, BP, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil and ChevronTexaco. [8] They developed an 84 page plan for Iraq and its oil in 2004. See it here. This plan was adopted by the State Department. It entails suppressing oil production, yes suppressing it!


Iraq’s oil expansion program is now dead, along with more than a million and a quarter Iraqis. The U.S. invasion and occupation has been very effective in accomplishing Big Oil’s financial goals. Iraq produced more oil under the highly restrictive Oil-for-Food Program than its yield in 2003, 2004 and 2005. This decline in production tripled profits for the five major U.S. oil companies to $89 billion for a single year, 2005, compared to pre-invasion 2002. Coincidentally, Big Oil profits increased at the same time that the oil industry increased contributions to Bush's reelection campaign, approximately $40 million. [9] Hey, that’s how Fascism works. Politicians do not represent the people, they represent business! Big business pays for that representation. [10]


Power Elite puppets have never been subtle about their intentions. The February 1950 New York Times reported: “Indo-China is a prize worth a large gamble. In the north are exportable tin, tungsten, manganese, coal, lumber and rice, rubber, tea, pepper, and hides. Even before World War II, Indo-China yielded dividends estimated at $300 million a year.” [11]South-East Asia supplied 90% of the world’s crude rubber, 60% of its tin and 80% of its copra (dried meat, or kernel, of the coconut) and coconut oil. It had sizeable quantities of sugar, tea, coffee, tobacco, sisal, fruits, spices, natural resins and gums, petroleum, iron ore and bauxite.” [12] However, certain U.S. based Power Elite principles made no profits from any of this and that was a major problem, especially for the highly competitive Standard Oil.   


On August 4, 1953, Eisenhower revealed reasons for U.S. interest in Southeast Asia and in the war that France was waging against Việt Nam by stating: “So, when the United States votes $400 million to help that war, we are not voting for a giveaway program. We are voting for the cheapest way that we can to prevent the occurrence of something that would be of the most terrible significance for the United States of America – our security, our power and ability to get certain things we need from the riches of the Indonesian territory, and from Southeast Asia.” [13] What exactly was the Power Elite objective in Việt Nam? Southeast Asia has oil resources! However, Shell Oil (formerly known as Royal-Dutch Petroleum), a Standard Oil competitor, had control of Indonesia’s oil resources. [14]


According to author Marshall Douglas Smith, Herbert Hoover (CFR, Bilderberger), a very astute world traveling geologist who later became the 31st U.S. president from 1929 to 33, produced an exhaustive world resources survey that included an interesting “insider secret – one of the world's largest potential oil fields ran along the coast of the South China Sea right off French Indochina, now known as Vietnam.” [15]


According to author Smith, Laurance S. Rockefeller, David’s brother, was aware of that oil survey. During World War II, Laurance Rockefeller served in the Navy (1942-1945), attaining the rank of lieutenant commander.” [16] At the end of World War II, Rockefeller was Japan’s Vice-Governor under General Douglas MacArthur, Military Governor of Japan (a strategic political position). [17] It was Rockefeller who allegedly arranged to sell that huge stash of weapons from the island of Okinawa to Ho Chi Minh, an ally, for his war against France for one dollar and his “good will.” [18] Later, that “good will” just might be remembered when the Rockefellers approached Ho Chi Minh about that oil.


There is a banker behind every puppet president. Bush’s great-grandfather, Samuel P. Bush, director of the Federal Reserve Bank in Cleveland, was a close adviser to President Herbert Hoover. [19] Hoover was a well-compensated puppet who, for certain projects, surrounded himself with Rhodes Scholars. He was a member of the infamous Bohemian Grove, to which every Republican President since Hoover has belonged. [20] He called it the “greatest men's party on Earth.” [21] Hoover, a sanitized scoundrel, is portrayed as a humanitarian who merely mismanaged the destabilizing effects of the October 29, 1929 contrived crash which forced the middle class into soup lines and onto relief rolls. Hoover took great pains to manage the public’s perceptions about him, especially after his activities in China. See here. He embraced what he called the “noble experiment” of prohibition, an unprecedented opportunity for organized crime to amass money and power. One may compare the prohibition on alcohol to the “war on drugs” – both encouraged crime while confiscating public funds and generating huge profits for criminals.


“The Bolsheviks were originally saved from collapse by Herbert Hoover who raised money to buy food which was appropriated by Lenin and his gangsters. They used it as a tool to subdue starving peasants who had been resisting their newly imposed slave masters. While Hoover's ‘humanitarian’ gesture saved the Soviet regime, the Russian economy was still in total chaos. In came the Vanderlips, Harrimans and Rockefellers. One of the first to jump in was Frank Vanderlip, an agent of the Rockefellers and one of the Jekyll Island conspirators, president of the Rockefeller First National City Bank, who compared Lenin to George Washington.” [22]


On March 4, 1929, Herbert Hoover was inaugurated as the thirty-first President of the United States. On March 28, 1929, Henry L. Stimson, Hoover’s obliging Secretary of State initiated efforts to help Rockefeller’s Standard Oil of California (SOCAL) obtain oil rights in Bahrain from the Gulf Oil Company. By 1935, SOCAL had 16 operating oil wells in Bahrain. [23]


The Hoover Institution of Stanford University was founded in 1919 by Herbert Hoover with a donation of $50,000. He created this influential think tank at the suggestion of three men: Andrew Dickson White, (S&B), Daniel Coit Gilman, (S&B) and Ray Lyman Wilbur, president of Stanford. [24]


Decades later and two weeks after the official end of the war in 1975, the U.S. placed punitive economic sanctions against the unified Democratic Republic of Việt Nam under the Trading With the Enemy Act. Apparently, even after decades of devastating war, Việt Nam was not sufficiently cooperative, despite Nobel laureate Kissinger’s “diplomacy.” The Power Elite frequently venerate each other with public praise and ostentatious awards. For confirmation of presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani’s true loyalties, please watch this video. He may possess the very traits that the Power Elite require of an “elected” official.


Việt Nam was classified an enemy after Saigon, renamed Ho Chi Minh City, fell to North Việt Nam troops in April, 1975. That U.S. embargo banned all trade with the U.S., Britain and the European Community. In 1976 even humanitarian and private aid to Việt Nam was blocked. Because of U.S. influence, access to international lending agencies, like the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the Asian Development Bank was blocked.


Allegedly, sanctions were imposed because Hanoi didn’t account for the missing American servicemen (MIAs). However, the unsanctioned U.S. invader, didn’t make an accounting to Việt Nam for:

·        Eight million tons of bombs (four times the amount used by the U.S. in all of World War II)  leaving ten million bomb craters [25]

·        Operation Linebacker One and Two

·        3.5 million land mines and 300,000 tons of unexploded ordnance. 40,000 people killed since 1975 by landmines and buried bombs. [26] 

·        Agent Orange, cluster bombs

·        400,000 tons of napalm, dropped on Vietnamese villages [27]

·        The destruction of infrastructure

·        The birth defects and catastrophic illnesses resulting from toxic chemicals.

·        In 1971 alone, 800,000 tons of bombs were dropped on Laos, Cambodia, and Việt Nam.

·        The massacre at My Lai; “Colonel Oran Henderson, who had been charged with covering up the My Lai killings, told reporters in early 1971: ‘Every unit of brigade size has its My Lai hidden someplace.’”


In conjunction with America’s war in Việt Nam, Laos and Cambodia were affected:

·        Congressional Research Service report prepared for the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee indicated that over one million Laotians had been killed, wounded, or turned into refugees [28]

·        The figure for Cambodia estimated at two million. [29]

·        Under Nixon and Kissinger (Rockefeller agent), secret bombing in Cambodia began in March 1969. The U.S. Air Force officially recorded the use of nearly 260,000 tons of bombs there.

·        Secret bombing missions over Laos began in late 1964

·        Around 230,000 tons of bombs were dropped just in northern Laos alone in 1968-69 [30]

·        Bombs dropped in Laos over eight and a half years exceeded two million tons. [31]


Three million Vietnamese were killed and 300,000 additional were missing in action. The U.S. lost almost 59,000 men and women with 2,000 missing in action. U.S. allies lost over 6,000. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, about 20,000 Việt Nam veterans committed suicide. Hundreds of thousands of boat-people died in the China Sea, and countless thousands of former Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) Officers and other government officials died in ‘reeducation’ camps. The people of resource-rich Việt Nam became some of the poorest in the area. [32]


War expenses amounted to $500 billion, paid to the government-friendly, banker-sponsored military/industrial complex. This destabilized the American economy. The conflict sapped the U.S. gold reserves, plentiful since 1945. [33] It was, after all, never about a military victory. Yet the war met the expectations of the Power Elite, according to their playbook.
