The Geopolitics of Petroleum

Petropolitics Presentation by G. Chia to ReNew/ATA group on 27/9/18:

 

ADDENDUM: I mentioned the main feature of capitalist banking is that it charges interest on debt. The other key feature is that it creates money (for new loans) out of nothing, the so-called fractional reserve banking system.

 

ERRATA: APOC was the abbreviation for the Anglo Persian Oil Company, NOT Anglo Petroleum Oil Company. I made an error in one of the crucial questions posed, which should be the velocity of a SWALLOW, not a sparrow. Apologies to Python fans. Other unintended mistakes may have inadvertently occurred which do not however change the substance of the concepts being elucidated. I do not know the actual water cut of fluid coming out of Ghawar, it may be 90%, it could be less, it could be more. That is something to be determined by independent investigators (who have not been bought and paid for by the oil industry).

OVERVIEW OF PRESENTATION: Introduction: 3D dynamic system model https://cassandralegacy.blogspot.com/… The importance of Petroleum How did we get here and where are we now? European colonialism before WW2: – Divide and Rule: Rwanda, Sykes-Picot US neocolonialism after WW2: – Heirarchy of tactics: if existing leaders are corruptible, bribe them. Otherwise pursue regime change by astroturfing revolution (eg Iran) or assassination (multiple examples in Latin America) or invasion (eg Iraq). Occasionally all those tactics fail (Cuba) The monetary system and oil: Bretton Woods and the Gold Standard The Petrodollar How the financial parasites funnel public wealth into their private coffers: predatory loans, TBTF banksters and the stockmarket Ponzi scheme Where are we headed? Declining EROEI of conventional oil and the futility of unconventional oils Current Saudi shenanigans by MBS – What next, bomb Iran? Moves by BRICS to overturn the Petrodollar are in motion and will cause the US economy to collapse. Will the US provoke WW3 in response?

    ” I do not know the actual water cut of fluid coming out of Ghawar, it may be 90%, it could be less, it could be more. That is something to be determined by independent investigators (who have not been bought and paid for by the oil industry).”

    All together a rather strange statement. First, as it is a state secret (punishable by death for any Saudi to report) that would never be reported by the govt. Second, why would any industry report be suspicious? As most should know I worked in the oil patch for 42 years. Except for occasional minor curiosity I’ve never known anyone in the oil patch t

    …in the oil patch that gave a crap what the water cut of Ghawar might be. Why, exactly, would we be? We do have a rough guess of how much oil the Saudis sell every month. But even that has little bearing on decisions companies make.

    Sounds like a bit of unwarranted paranoia to me.

    “The September data showed that passenger-car purchases by dealerships declined 12% from a year earlier to 2.06 million units in September, the biggest drop on record.”

    “According to Bloomberg Intelligence analyst Steve Man, the slump may be the biggest that auto manufacturers have ever experienced in China. Similar to the US, weaker brands may be hit disproportionately, and the companies will need to cut prices to drum up sales, Man said. Some carmakers may also be forced to shutter factories to reduce inventories and lower costs.”

    Deceptive Dave is at it again:

    Cloggie, Davy is a hard core sinophobe. He goes rabid when anyone dares to point out that China is moving up, while the Us is moving down. He is unable to give a good reference for his position because there aren’t any.

    Asia is the new center of progression. The center of power has moved East, again.

  8. Cloggie on Sat, 13th Oct 2018 3:29 am 

    Um makati, I would say that Asia is the new center of growth and power, “progression”…. dunno. There is a high #metoo component about what is happening there. And with all the admiration for their achievements, we should not forget that you and I have white skins are are definately NOT Asians and they see us as foreigners and secretly are naturaly gloating about our relative decline. The rise of China will be the single most important driving factor behind the rise of the coming Greater European counter alliance, greatly enabled by Trump and Brexit. PBM + Heartland USA would be sufficient to guarantee white survival in a rapidly datkening world.

    And the English? We can set up a special reserve for them between Stoke-on-Trent and the “Hadrian Wall”, between an independent pristine white Scotland and darkie town Londoninistan.

  9. makati1 on Sat, 13th Oct 2018 3:53 am 

    Cloggie, I agree that they are enjoying the decline of the Western oppressors. Most of the world, outside of the West is of the same mind. They will cheer when the US goes down.

    I am not afraid to be a ‘whitey’ in the land of permanent tans. There are well over 100,000 of us living in the Ps. And, a lot of the Asians (Chinese, Koreans, Japanese, etc.) living here are more white than I am. lol

    I still doubt that your dream of a European “Renascence” is going to happen. That is NOT the elite’s plan. No area/country will be above any other in their One World Government. The Great Leveling will happen in Europe also.

    BTW: Check out the ‘UN Agenda 2030″ and see why I believe that the Great Leveling is underway.

  10. Cloggie on Sat, 13th Oct 2018 4:48 am 

    Makati, you are absolutely right that a European renaissance is not in the plans of the (((elite))).

    The point is that said elite is with the back against the wall, after Trump, Brexit, Syria, Turkey moving towards Islam, Afghanistan, Donbass, SCO, dollar reserve currency under threat, rise of the internet at the cost of the MSM, etc, etc [insert Yul Brynner here].

    I think the elite is down for the count and lost against Trump, Putin, Xi, Farage, Erdogan, yes even Brussels. The US empire is over, interesting is what comes next… 3, 2, 1….

    – a temporary split EU-Anglosphere after Brexit
    – breakup UK after Brexit
    – retreat Merkel
    – Macron making good on setting up European defense force, on request of Trump, including Russia as recently announced by Macron
    – 2-6 more Trump years before the Dems take over, “for ever”, because of demographic shift.
    – American white nationalists will attemp an uprising against Washington
    – Together with the 640 million of PBM they will inflict a crushing blow against Washington in a XXL replay of 1776. Formation of a white ethno-state, 6 times France, twice French population in the Missisipe basin.
    – the core of the white race, in no particular order will be Amerikaner, French, Germans and Russians, united in a single military alliance and culture circle, in a post-Marxist, post-globalist, identitarian birds-of-a-feather world.

    “. Hahaha…”
    The hahaha is on you dummy. Look at the date on your stupid Forbes article. Forbes is rag journalism anyway. Besides dummy I am reporting news and that was a reference without comment so how could it be a lie?

    “Cloggie, Davy is a hard core sinophobe.”

    Billy, Davy is moderating your rabid, obsessive, and excessive anti-American agenda with balance. How can we know the truth with you and neder on this board? You both are extremist peddling a personal message in excess and with selfish intent. China is the biggest risk to the world economy now. The risk revolves around if China slows down and it is slowing down. I am reporting that and you are lying about that.

  14. Davy on Sat, 13th Oct 2018 5:29 am

    Lol, keep telling yourself that billy, until the place starts falling apart then you will be part of their problem and eliminated accordingly. It is the same everywhere, foreigners will be scape goats. A plus on your side is you may not live that long pushing 80 so you may get lucky.

    “Look at the date on your stupid Forbes article.”

    12-12-2017.

    So?

    Expect the Chinese to be even more online shoppers today than last year, like the rest of the world btw.

    Actually Forbes is not bad, better than sensationalist 0-hedge, run by that Bulgarian Jew Turd Dyler.
