Black Gold, Hot Gold
The Rise of Fascism in the American Energy Business
by Marshall Douglas Smith
Posted May 7, 2001
What is often called the German or Italian form of Fascism had its roots in America. Both Hitler and Mussolini were funded and brought into power in the 1920's and '30s by international bankers, including the 12 banks which now make up the American Federal Reserve System. But I get ahead of myself.
Beginning in the late 1800's, John D. Rockefeller, by means of a
deception, using a ploy with his Union Tanker Car Company was able to
corner the oil market. In this scheme, he owned the
company which had the design patent for the all-metal sealed oil tanker
railroad car. The same type of tanker cars are still in use today.
Rockefeller, through Union Tanker Car, leased tanker cars by the hundreds
to the owners of newly discovered oil fields so they could ship the crude
to the refiners. This often included kickbacks from the railroad for
increasing the profitable traffic on their rails.
In the late 1800's, prior to the design of the tanker railroad car, petroleum was shipped to the refiner in open wooden barrels on flatbed cars. Some of the oil was lost as it sloshed out whenever the train stopped or started or went around corners. Much of the valuable part of the crude oil simply evaporated from the open barrels before it got to the refiner, often leaving only a heavy black tar. The wooden barrels were difficult and time consuming to fill and drain.
The closed metal tanker car was a boon to the new petroleum business. After several months of oil field development and shipments from the numerous wells being sunk in the ground, and after the refiner had built new facilities to handle the increased flow of crude, Union Tanker broke the lease and took back all of its tanker cars.
Since there was no other source for the tanker cars, both the oil field developer and the refiner began to lose money caused by the instantaneous stoppage of the oil flow from field to refinery. Within months the oil producer and the refiner, after making large investments, were now on the verge of bankruptcy. Then John Rockefeller, through his holding company, Standard Oil, simply walked in and purchased both the oil fields and the refinery at pennies on the dollar. He usually also ended up with the railroad in between.
Despite his reputation as an oil magnate, John D himself was not really
an oilman. He had little experience as either an oil driller or refiner. He
simply leased oil tanker cars and made money buying oil fields and
distressed prices. To run his oil fields and
refineries, Rockefeller often hired the very same entrepreneurs whom he had
just defrauded. They now worked for him. Only many decades later was it
discovered who caused the
distress. And any Rockefeller today will
...but it was not illegal.
In the period of 1900 to 1910 this conspiracy was repeated numerous times and Standard Oil then owned almost all the oil fields in California, Texas, Arkansas, New Jersey and Ohio, and several other states. Thus John D. Rockefeller either owned or controlled about 90% of what we now call the energy business. At that time, research shows, not many people knew that Rockefeller owned the Union Tanker Car Company. Otherwise, very few oilmen would have signed bogus leases for the cars if they had known that John D. and Standard Oil owned all the tanker cars.
muckraker authors of the early 1900's, such as Ida Tarbell,
exposed the predatory monopolist marketing practice of Standard Oil. But
the Rockefeller connection with Union Tanker, and how Standard came into
being, was not discovered until many decades later. And it still is not in
the history books. And most of those few books which did show the
connection between John Rockefeller and the Union Tanker Car Company have
somehow mysteriously disappeared, but not all.
In 1911, the US government brought charges of monopoly against John D.
and Standard Oil, and the company was broken apart. The many new companies
all had names which were variations of the initials S.O., such as SOHIO in
Ohio, SOCONY in New York, ESSO (
S.O.) which later became EXXON, etc.
The splitting of the company was a mere inconvenience for Rockefeller. In
retaliation, John D. made a vow. He vowed he would put his company back
together. He also vowed in turn he would
break apart the United
States. He and his sons and grandsons and their companies have accomplished
both. It was completed about 8 years ago. Again, I get ahead of myself.
In the period of 1910 to 1914 there were only three major oil companies
in the world, (1) Standard Oil in America and its many
mini-S.O.-standards after the 1911 breakup, (2) the British-Persian
Petroleum Company, which controlled the large oilfields in Persia (now
Iran), roughly extending up into southern Russia, and (3) Royal Dutch Shell
which controlled the vast oil fields in the old Dutch East Indies Colonies
in Indonesia and southeast Asia. John D. resolved to take over control of
both the British-Persian Petroleum company and Royal Dutch Shell.
Rockefeller believed the world would be better served if all nasty corporate competition were eliminated. Then he could make the decisions to market petroleum like an efficient, smooth running, well oiled machine. It was simply a continuation of his business practice in the US for the previous 10 years. In several inter-corporate meetings around 1910 this was almost accomplished. He was distracted when the US government broke apart his oil holdings, but he was not deterred.
The big three oil companies agreed, instead, to act jointly as if they
were one company, the first oil cartel. They settled on one world price for
oil, which from 1910 to about 1975 was the world pegged price of
Texas Sweet Crude. The law of
supply-and-demand had been
subverted. It was as if everyone bought their oil in Texas from Standard
Oil regardless of from where in the world the oil came. They also agreed to
divide up the world into three oil zones to match their local oil supplies
and markets. To accomplish this they would need to eliminate or take over
control of all other smaller local national ownerships of crude oil, or
even the colonial ownership of any oil fields, such as in the old colonies
of France, Germany, Spain and Portugal.
This was the purpose of World War I from 1914 to 1918, though few people realized it. The elimination of most of the colonialism of the 1800's and the carving up of the world was completed with the Treaty of Versailles. The arbitrary carving of the world into three primary areas is well documented in history books. Until recently, whose hands were behind the carving had not been disclosed.
For Standard Oil to participate in the drawing up of the Treaty of Versailles, the United States would need to participate in WWI. Although the US entered the conflict belatedly and actually had a minimal affect on the outcome of the European war, the US was in on the negotiations and a signatory to the treaty. All went well, but, there was a fly in the ointment. In 1917, Russia did not go along with the plan to steal their huge oilfields. Russia had pulled out of WWI and did not participate in the Treaty of Versailles. The Bolsheviks, after several years of revolution, now had the world's largest supply of oil in southern Russia. Those vast oil fields were not under the control of either Standard, British Petroleum or Royal Dutch.
Prior to World War I, the most common use for petroleum was to make kerosene, a cheap replacement for the smelly whale oil or smoky coal oil in lamps for homes or businesses. Before the general use of electric light bulbs, kerosene was a product which was highly desirable, with a world-wide market. During WWI, it was discovered that petroleum could also be easily refined to make gasoline or diesel fuel for the internal combustion engines that were in the new airplanes, trucks, ships, submarines and tanks developed during the war.
Thus it became clear after 1918, ownership of oil was not only highly profitable but could now determine who won or lost a war. No longer would empires be built on, nor wars fought in the search for and conquest of gold. Gold had been superseded as the means to obtain political power. The internal combustion engine had replaced the war horse. In a period of only several years, a sudden shift in the geopolitics of the world had just occurred. And most people never noticed. He who has the most oil rules. Oil, black gold, became the fuel for the engines of war. A new world empire was about to be created. A new empire, not based on countries or nations, but of private corporations.
The arbitrary carving of the world into three pieces by the Big 3 oil
companies in 1918, as determined by the Treaty of Versailles, was one of
the reasons why Adolf Hitler wanted to get rid of the Jews. John D.
Rockefeller, whose family name had originally been something like the
Germanic Rogenfelder, was considered Jewish by most Europeans. Since
Germany had just lost all its colonies with their oil fields under the
arbitrary carving of national boundaries along oil market lines by the
Versailles Treaty, Hitler blamed the
Jews for all of Germany's
problems. Hitler believed those whose hands had done the carving were all
Jewish. That's right out of Hitler's book.
For John Rockefeller to overcome the problem of his oil holdings being broken apart by the US government in 1911, he created another stratagem even larger than the Union Tanker Car Company. He took his vast wealth and created 12 large holding banks we now know as the private Federal Reserve. The plot was to somehow sell his banks to the US Congress. He succeeded two years later in 1913.
All federal taxes collected since 1913 go through the private Federal
Reserve System banks, whether they are gas taxes, import excise taxes or
income taxes. You file your tax return with the Internal Revenue Service,
but all the tax money withheld by your employer is sent to a Federal
Reserve Bank. At the end of the fiscal year, the government IRS reports to
the private Federal Reserve Banks how much income tax is reported on tax
returns and then that amount should be transferred to the Federal
government. The private Federal Reserve then pays that amount, but does not
report or pay the interest earned on that money during the year. That is
profit to the Federal Reserve Banks. This is now true of the so-called
central banks of most nations, which were chartered along the same
lines as the American Federal Reserve banks.
That is why they want you to
overpay your taxes, and then at the
end of the year, when you file your return with the IRS, you get back a
refund, not from the Fed Banks, but with a check from the US Treasury. The
private Fed earns interest on the amount you overpay, but the government
Treasury loses the amount you get refunded. The private Federal Reserve
pays no taxes and reports to no one. Thus, John Rockefeller and his heirs
and assigns, have a cash flow each year equal to a good percentage of the
American gross national product and that would be enough to buy out British
Petroleum and Royal Dutch Shell, even if Standard Oil was broken into
Thus financially armed, the very next year, Standard Oil, British
Petroleum and Royal Dutch set out to carve up the world into three markets
in 1914, in what we call World War I. But ended up with the lion's share of
the world's oil still in the hands of the Bolsheviks, later ignominiously
communists. The Socialists wanted the Russian state to
control the national resources such as oil, and not private profit making
companies like Standard, British Petroleum or Royal Dutch.
It would be hard for the Big 3 to corner and control the world oil
market if the Russians still had the lion's share. To counter the Russian
socialists, the Big 3 created and supported numerous
movements, which we now call Fascist. In Fascism, private profit-making
corporations work hand-in-hand with governments, as opposed to Socialism
where private companies are eliminated, and the country's resources and
means of production are controlled by the government, usually a dictator,
and the people. The profit from the sale of resources or goods produced
goes to the people of the country, not some private corporation.
It was John D. Rockefeller who called the shots at the early Big 3 oil
company meetings, even though he could not yet buy out his competitors, the
British and the Dutch companies. Thus, as I said previously, Fascism, as a
counter to Russian
communism, came right from the US. The
Bolsheviks, Marxists and Leninists had long called themselves
socialists. The USSR was the Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics.
They never called themselves
communists. It was John D. and the Big
3 who coined the word and branded them
communists. This was because
the Russian Socialists held the oil fields as
community property and
did not allow private corporations like Standard to come in and privately
own or steal the oil resources.
Fascism grew out of the attempt of the Big 3 oil companies to form a
world cartel to control the world's supply of petroleum and eliminate any
other competitors which they branded as
communists. Thus at the end
of WWI, after the Treaty of Versailles, and the take over of the large oil
fields in southern Russia by the socialists, came the creation of both
fascism. Both were constructs, inventions and
ploys of the Big 3: Standard Oil, British Petroleum and Royal Dutch Shell.
It was a deception which would lead to world empire.
In the 1920's and '30s the Big 3 decided on a plan to eliminate Russian
control of oil by
hiring the small
fascist movements in
Germany and Japan to attack and take over Russia and thus eliminate any
state control of oil fields. Most historians would blame large
international bankers for funding the rise of fascism. But the bankers had
no motivation and fringe fascists parties in Germany, Italy and Japan did
not look like good financial risks. But for the Big 3 Oil companies there
was a strong motivation to use the
fascists to defeat the
communists in Russia and take over the world oil market. And the
vast oil wealth which they stored in their international banks provided
them with the means. In the 1920's the opportunity was ripe.
Thus the small fascist political parties in Germany, Japan and Italy were given massive Big 3 financial backing to help those minor political parties come to power and build up their military. But things did not go quite as they had planned. The aging John D. had died and his son and four grandsons had decided they would carve up the world along different lines, and at the same time eliminate their competitors, the British and Dutch oil companies.
In 1939 and '40, the Germans did not attack Russia as the Big 3 had expected. Instead German General Rommel went rushing across north Africa to grab the Suez Canal and control all oil shipping through the canal. He then planned to continue on to Persia and toss out the British from the British-Persian oil fields. Also in 1939 the Japanese, after a short abortive attack on Russia in which they were driven out, instead went through southeast Asia and grabbed up all the oil holdings of Royal Dutch Shell. Most of those Royal Dutch fields at the end of the WWII came under the control of Standard Oil.
The British and Dutch companies probably knew in 1939 that their
fascist oil plan to grab the fields in southern
Russia had gone astray when both the Germans and the Japanese signed
non-aggression pacts with Russia, and instead went after the Persian and
East Indies oil fields. The grandsons of John D. were as sneaky and devious
as their grandfather, but that's the competitive nature of the oil business
in the new empire of energy.
The new Standard Oil plan was to have Germany and Japan attack and control Russia and its oil, along with the fields in Persia and Indonesia, then the US would attack and defeat Germany and Japan, thus leaving all the Russian oil in the hands of Standard Oil. And at the same time the holdings of British Petroleum and Royal Dutch Shell would then be taken from the Germans and Japanese, which would then also be controlled by Standard. And no one would be the wiser, since the British and Dutch fields would then just be the spoils of war.
When it became clear that neither the Japanese nor Germans
fascists could complete the jobs for which they were
the American people were tricked into supplying the man-power by entering
WWII after the Pearl Harbor incident. In 1941, while nobody seems to have
been watching, the Japanese had become a very powerful militaristic nation,
well endowed with foreign funding from the Big 3, but they had no energy or
oil supply of their own. They relied on the supply of oil for their new
planes, ships, tanks and trucks coming from the Royal Dutch fields in
In July 1941, President Roosevelt signed an embargo to stop all shipping
to Japan, presumably in retaliation for the recent Japanese invasion of
French Indo-china. The Roosevelts and the Rockefellers had long had
friendly family ties. Roosevelt's US embargo cut off the Japanese oil
supply, which would have quickly shut down Japan, with the obvious result.
In late November 1941 the Japanese sent a written
through diplomatic channels to Washington, declaring the embargo should be
stopped, or else many American sites in the Pacific would be attacked in
retaliation. That formal diplomatic warning was ignored and the US sent
back no reply. Just two weeks later the Japanese broke the embargo, by
bombing the American embargo ships parked in Pearl Harbor.
It was no surprise attack. The Japanese had formally announced it two weeks before. It was only the obvious result of the American strangulation of the oil flow to Japan, and a clearly stated Japanese warning which had been received and ignored. The American public had been fooled into thinking it was a sneak surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. Since Franklin Roosevelt said so, it must be true. The Pacific war turned out to be a prolonged aircraft carrier war. Strangely, the US aircraft carriers in the Pacific Fleet had been sent on maneuvers just several days before the attack and none were in Pearl Harbor on Dec 7, 1941. Coincidence?
And it must also be by some strange logic, if Japan attacks the US, then the US also declares war on Germany. Unless, of course, there is some other larger plan afoot. The historical record shows Germany had not attacked nor engaged the US in conflict, so why did Roosevelt declare war on Germany in December 1941?
Records now show, that Hitler's plan had been to first capture the oilfields in Romania by 1939 so Germany would have its own supply of oil. This was accomplished. Then Rommel would capture the oilfields in Persia by 1941, then capture the oilfields in Russia in 1942, and only then would Hitler have sufficient fuel for prosecuting a war with the United States. But the Japanese, on December 11, 1941, less than a week after the Pearl Harbor incident, convinced Hitler to also declare war on the United States. Hitler agreed only if the Japanese would attack Russia, since the fascists were now bogged down in Russia and Hitler would be helped if the Russians had to defend themselves from Japan. But the Japanese did not attack Russia. Hitler was driven out of Russia and now was without a fuel source. Was this the war plan of the new Empire of Energy?
The Romanian oilfields in Ploesti were insufficient for Germany to carry on a war on two fronts. With American assistance going to Stalin to protect his southern Russian oilfields and with Rommel stopped in Africa so he could not reach the Persian oilfields, it was only a matter of time until Germany's war engines would run out of fuel. By the time of the Allied invasion of Europe on June 6, 1944, Germany was running on fumes. The last major German attack against the Allied invasion force was the Battle of the Bulge. Hitler had intended for Rommel to attack the invading allies with his tanks, then capture the fuel dumps which the allies had amassed. This would stop the American and British forces, and obtain needed fuel.
But when German General Rommel got to the fuel dumps he found American
General Eisenhower had ordered them burned. No, the Allies did not win the
Battle of the Bulge. It was Rommel and Hitler who lost. Rommel's panzer
tanks simply ran out of gas. The German army abandoned their tanks right
where they had quit. After that it was a rather swift footrace with the
Allies chasing the Germans in a fast retreat back to Berlin. Is there
something wrong with this picture? Yes. It's not the one you were taught in
school. You were taught the story about the horrors of
communism but you weren't taught about how black gold had now become
the motive and the means for war. He who owns the oil rules. World War II
was a demonstration of both, and the new power of the Empire of Energy.
So the Japanese, the Germans and even the Americans were deceived into
enemy. But in fact, at the end of the war in 1945, it
was Standard Oil who won the war in the Pacific and had taken control of
most of the oil fields in the Pacific area from Royal Dutch Shell. All that
was left was to acquire the oil fields in Persia and Russia. The new Empire
of Energy was just scant years away from complete world domination.

Following World War II, the British-Persian Oil Company still controlled
the vast oil fields in Iran. The Persians had already shown they were
aligned with Adolf Hitler's fascist
Aryan Race movement and were
fully expecting German General Rommel to come rushing across Africa and
free them from the British. They showed this by even changing the
name of their country from Persia to
Iran in the
Farsi language. But the Germans failed to arrive.
After the war, British control of the Persian oilfields was soon easily eliminated. In 1954 Kermit Roosevelt, nephew of Franklin, led an American CIA coup to wrest control of Iran and placed in power the American-backed Shah of Iran. The Shah drove out the British. Standard Oil now had control of the British-Persian petroleum fields.
But what of the still vaster oil fields in southern Russia? Also in 1954, with negotiations made through Occidental Petroleum's Armand Hammer, a deal was made with Russian dictator Nikita Khruschev. The arrangement was to buy his oil, actually steal it from the Russian people, and sell it on the world market at a much higher price than Khruschev could get by selling it himself. Khruschev was no oil marketer. Few countries would be willing to deal with or buy oil from Khruschev, thus there was almost no market for the Russian oil.
The simple but devious method was to build two large pipelines, which still exist today, going from the Russian oil fields down along both sides of the Caspian Sea and then terminate in the old British-Persian oil fields in Iran, which by then were controlled by Standard Oil. Was Russia selling oil to oil-rich Iran? Or Iran selling to oil-rich Russia? There would seem no logical reason for building those two huge pipe lines simply going from one oil field to another.
For over 45 years, Russia has been sneaking its oil out through those
pipe lines and selling its oil on the world market at the
Crude price by calling it Iranian oil. Its what most Americans have
been putting in their cars for almost 50 years. This is made evident by the
fact that most large American oil refineries which produce gasoline from
crude oil are located at large sea ports like San Francisco, Houston or Los
Angeles, and not near any of the large American oil fields. Oil is mostly
shipped in oil tankers, not explosive flammable gasoline, so those large
American refinery-ports are only for the import of crude oil, not for the
export of refined gasoline. Thus there is a simple one-way massive flow of
oil from Russian fields, through Iran to large super oil tanker ships, to
American refineries, and then into American cars.
Many times, since 1973, whenever the price of gasoline skyrockets,
American's are told its their own fault, since they are relying on using
too much expensive foreign oil. When was the last time you went to the gas
station to fill your tank and were given a choice of pumping either the
American gas or the expensive foreign gas, and you decided,
Hmm, I think
I'll buy the foreign gas. It turns out somebody else has already chosen
for you. Guess who?
Standard now had almost complete control of the world market for energy. To make this scheme work, both Khruschev in Russia and the Shah in Iran had to be paid handsomely. But buying off the leaders of dictatorships is easy when money is no object. The problem is maintaining the dictators in power, especially when the local populace learns their natural resources are being stolen.
In 1979, when the Standard Oil-backed Shah of Iran was thrown out by his
own people as a harsh iron-fisted
profiteering dictator and the
nationalist Ayatollah took over, the flow of Russian oil through Iran
suddenly stopped. Other pipelines were constructed through Iraq and Turkey.
The Russian oil was now called OPEC Arabian-Middle Eastern oil and marketed
at the even higher
spot market price. This accounts for the gas
shortages and the rise of the price of gasoline in 1979.
On November 4, 1979 the Iranian
revolutionaries captured and held
hostage 65 Americans. The very next day Iran canceled all treaties with the
US and USSR, which meant the oil flow had been stopped. In response,
President Carter froze the Iranian
assets in the US. Why would the
US have nearly $8 billion in Iranian assets? Were those the regular
payments which were to be made to the Shah for covering up the Russian oil
transfer? Did the new Iranian government want the money which was due and
payable or else they would expose the oil scheme? The lengthy Iran-Iraq war
had just started and Iran needed the money.
Most Americans and historians believe somehow the election of President
Reagan was the reason for holding the remaining 52 American hostages until
the very day when Reagan was inaugurated. Most people are not aware the
hostages were actually released only moments after the year-long
negotiations and the complex electronic transfer was completed of 7.9
billion dollars from US accounts to the Iranian accounts on January 20,
1981. Carter had announced the day before on January 19th that the
arrangements had been made, but the news media paid little attention. It
was Standard Oil, not the United States, which was being
by the Iranians. President Carter had
frozen the Iranian accounts,
but that was not US money. It was oil money, and Ronald Reagan was not a
player in that game.
Also in 1979 an attempt to secure an alternate short safe oil pipeline route from Russia through neighboring Afghanistan only resulted in a prolonged war and that project was dropped. Sometimes you can fool some of the people, but not always.
Another, safer and more profitable oil route was desperately needed
which would not be open to revolution and warfare. Both of which could
affect the flow of oil. For over 25 years, it appears the new method has
been to transfer oil through the long Trans-Siberian pipeline stretching
from the southern Russian oilfields to the Arctic Sea in eastern Siberia.
Then the Russian oil is brought down through the Alaska Pipe line and
marketed as North Slope American oil. All during this time something called
anti-communist Cold War was occurring, but in the larger Empire
of Energy, such things do not exist.
In early 1990, the USSR announced through the TASS news service that the
Trans-Siberian Pipeline would need extended maintenance and for about a
year would be reducing their oil output by 25%. Four days later the Alaska
Pipeline company, announced they would be doing extended maintenance and
for about a year would be reducing their oil output by 25%. Coincidence?
Those two stories were both reported by the Associated Press several days
apart in 1990, but nobody seems to have put them together. The Arctic Sea
is a navigational
no-mans land and only
military ships are
allowed there, so any transfer is easily hidden.
OPEC itself is another Standard Oil scheme which, by arbitrarily
withholding supplies of oil, can drive up the price. This is reminiscent of
the old Union Tanker Car Company method of getting the customer to start
the oil flow going, then arbitrarily cutting off the supply in order to
corner the market, drive out competitors, and raise the prices. OPEC
should not really have any affect on the world price of oil since it
controls only about 10 percent of the total world supply, unless one wants
to believe all American oil comes from Arabia. Which it doesn't, since most
world oil comes from the vastly larger oil fields in Russia. And it is
Standard and its spin-offs which control most of the Russian and Arabian
You probably think most of what I said here doesn't make sense. How could Rockefeller's Standard Oil be doing all that? You probably think, wait a minute, where is Standard Oil? I never even hear about them anymore. Does it still exist? Yes. In the Wednesday January 27, 1988, Wall Street Journal, in a full two-page double-truck ad, it was announced that little Standard Oil was merging with big brother British Petroleum. Could this be true? British Petroleum then had very few productive holdings compared to Standard Oil which controlled much of the world market.
The scheme was, when they announced the merger, actually finally a Standard Oil buyout of British Petroleum, the name of the new merged company was BP-America. In other words, BP is Standard Oil. Standard Oil simply took over the assets and the name of British Petroleum. The name was chosen to hide that fact. Seemingly, all fears and worries about the world-wide predatory marketing practices of Standard Oil have now been allayed and put to rest — since the name Standard Oil is never mentioned again.
In the last 12 years, during a period of many large companies merging,
such as AOL-Time-Warner, etc., BP-America has also merged again and again
and changed its name. It is now known as BP-AMOCO but it has in fact bought
up, merged with, or controls all of the old Standard Oil
mini-companies which came from the original breakup by the US
government way back in 1911.
Thus, John D. Rockefeller's vow of recombining his original Standard Oil Company has been accomplished, even though it was done by his grandsons and their progeny. BP-AMOCO recently took over control of the Alaska Pipeline. There may appear to be several companies like Texaco or Mobil all drilling on the north slope of Alaska, but it's John D's offspring who now control the price at the spigot in Valdez Harbor. And of course, it's that spigot which is at the end of a very long pipeline stretching all the way to the world's largest oil source in southern Russia. The Empire of Energy now seemed to only have one obstacle left in its way.

In 1945, at the end of WWII, when the Japanese surrendered, General Douglas MacArthur became the military Governor of Japan. MacArthur's assistant was Laurence Rockefeller, one of John D's four grandsons. Just before the Japanese surrendered, the US had been preparing for a massive invasion of the Japanese home islands and had stockpiled vast supplies of weapons and munitions on the island of Okinawa. Enough weaponry to invade Japan. What ever happened to all those military supplies?
With Vice-governor Laurence Rockefeller's assistance most of them were
sold to the leader of Viet Nam, Ho Chi Minh, for something like one US
dollar and Ho's
goodwill. Why would Laurence do that? That was US
taxpayer property. Ho Chi Minh had been an ally to help fight the Japanese
during the war. But the Chinese had been an even greater ally, so why
didn't the weapons go to China? Those weapons might have prevented Mao Tse
Tung from taking over China just four years later if they had been given to
China. But that wasn't the plan. From where did Mao get his weapons?
In the 1920's an insider secret became known to a few people. It was published in an exhaustive world resources survey book written by a renowned world-traveling geologist named Hoover, who later became a US President. Not many copies were printed and few people read the book. The secret was that one of the world's largest potential oil fields ran along the coast of the South China Sea right off French Indo-China, now known as Viet Nam. But in the 1920's the method of deep sea oil drilling had not yet been developed. In 1945, the French still held small oil-poor Viet Nam as a colony. Laurence knew about Hoover's book and the off shore oilfields. The French could be driven out if the Vietnamese nationals, lead by Ho Chi Minh, could be supplied with weapons. Did the French know about this?
Laurence Rockefeller thought he could trick Ho Chi Minh by offering him the weapons to drive out the French and then in return Standard would take over the as yet undeveloped offshore fields. But in 1954 when Vietnamese General Giap finally defeated and drove out the French at Dien Bien Phu, Ho reneged on the deal. Since by then, everybody including the French, the Vietnamese, the Japanese and the Chinese had all read the same Hoover resource book and knew there was a vast supply of oil off the Vietnamese coast. Many people have wondered why the French have been so recalcitrant toward the US ever since French President Charles DeGaul wanted to pull out of NATO in the mid-1950's.
Ho Chi Minh would not let Standard Oil simply walk in and walk off with
all the Vietnamese oil. So as before, any country which owns the oil is
communist since they hold the oil as
property and won't allow private corporations, like Standard, to
develop the fields and steal the oil. In this case, young American's
hired directly to be the
fascists to go
fight the Vietnamese
The whole 20 year Viet Nam
war from 1955 to 1975 was an oil scam.
And all during the
war, Vietnamese General Giap fought the Americans
with weapons he got from Laurence for a dollar. Did you ever wonder why the
US, despite, greatly superior weapons, and the loss of 57,000 Americans and
half a million Vietnamese, never won the
war? Ever wonder why the US
President issued such strange
rules of engagement for the American
troops that made sure they didn't win? Ever wonder why Henry Kissinger, a
personal assistant to Nelson Rockefeller spent so much time in the Viet
Nam/Paris Peace talks which never went anywhere but simply dragged on for
years. Maybe winning the
war wasn't part of the plan of the Empire
of Energy. Maybe the timing of the
war was more important.
In the 1950's a method of undersea oil exploration was perfected which used small explosions deep in the water and then recorded the sound echos bouncing off the various layers of rock below. The surveyor could then determine the exact location of the arched salt domes which hold the accumulated oil beneath them. But if this method were used off the Viet Nam coast on property Standard didn't own or have the rights to, the Vietnamese, the Chinese, the Japanese and probably even the French would quickly run to the United Nations and complain that America was stealing the oil, and that would shut down the operation.
In 1964, after Viet Nam was divided into North and South, and the
contrived Gulf of Tonkin incident, several US aircraft carriers were
stationed offshore of Viet Nam and the
war was started. Every day
jet planes would take off from the carriers, bomb locations in North and
South Vietnam, and then using normal military procedure when returning
would dump their unsafe or unused bombs in the ocean before landing back on
the carriers. Safe ordnance drop zones were designated for this purpose
away from the carriers.
Even close-up observers would only notice many small explosions
occurring daily in the waters of the South China Sea and thought it was
only part of the
war. The US Navy carriers had begun Operation
Linebacker One, and Standard Oil had begun its ten year oil survey of the
seabed off of Viet Nam. And the Vietnamese, Chinese and everybody else
around, including the Americans, were none the wiser. The oil survey hardly
cost Standard Oil a nickel, the US taxpayers paid for it.
In 1995, in a multi-hour BBC TV documentary broadcast about the oil
industry, the president of one of the oil companies, a spin-off of
.. It was quite a coincidence, that we finished our
offshore oil survey on the very last day of the war, just as the last
helicopter was leaving the roof of the embassy in Saigon. A
Fifteen years later, after North and South Viet Nam were unified and all
the dust settled and most people had forgotten about the
Vietnamese decided they needed some cash and would allow offshore oil
exploration. They divided up their coastal area into many oil lots and let
foreign companies bid on the lots, with the proviso that Viet Nam got a cut
of the action.
Oil companies from 12 countries put in bids. Norway's Statoil, British
Petroleum, Royal Dutch Shell, even Russia, Germany and Australia all put in
bids. But when those countries drilled in their oil lots they all came up
with dry holes. Only the
American company had gushers and since 1990
has pulled billions of dollars out of their Golden Dragon, Blue Lotus, and
White Tiger oil fields in the South China Sea off Viet Nam. Coincidence?
Were they just lucky? Or did they know something those other oil companies
In order to cover for the fact that the Viet Nam
war was a
phoney war with the Vietnamese branded as
communists, and the
US as a country having no intention of winning, the US would need to
withdraw as soon as the oil survey was done. A reason would be needed to
explain the withdrawal. In the late 1960's Standard recruited large numbers
of idealistic youth who were against the war and the military draft. The
oil companies supplied them with monetary assistance and organization.
Those oil-backed and organized youth became the large anti-war
demonstrations of the 60's and 70's. Almost none of the demonstrators knew
they were being used. Most people still believe the
because of the strong US sentiment against the
war, and President
Nixon's withdrawal plan was a reaction to the demonstrators. There is too
much information which explains the strange relationship between Richard
Nixon and Nelson Rockefeller, the Nixon withdrawal plan and the resulting
Watergate incident and Nelson's rise to power to become Vice President
after Nixon resigned, so I will explain that later.
So it appears there are many oil companies but they are, in fact, all under one controlling marketeer, BP also known as Standard Oil, which sets the world price of energy. Ever wonder why President G.W. Bush wanted to open up new drilling in Alaska? There is a vast new undeveloped oil field discovered in 1989 around and under the Caspian Sea in central southern Russia. This one oil field is larger than any other field ever discovered. This oil could be sent out through the Siberian Pipeline to the Arctic Sea, then down the Alaska Pipeline, as is the Black Sea oil. Something would need to account for the greatly increased and continuous flow of oil in the Alaska pipeline.
New drilling in Alaska, whether oil is found or not, could be used to explain why so much oil is still coming from the Alaska pipeline. Nobody ever mentioned that the North Slope Alaska oil fields, around the Duck Island Western Facility, operated by BP, were running dry and that was the reason why new drilling was needed. Maybe because its not true. Nobody ever mentioned that the Prudhoe Bay Eastern Facility, just a mile or so east of Duck Island, also operated by BP, at the very top of the Alaska Pipeline is a harbor. Maybe nobody wanted you to know.
And exactly where is this new freshly discovered mother of all oil
fields in southern Russia? In a province called Chechnya. Is it any wonder
the Chechens wanted to become an independent state? Is it any wonder there
had been an ongoing ten year war between the Russian and Chechen troops.
Did the Russians
brand the Chechen rebels as
because they want to keep their own oil? Most Russian mothers have no clue
why their sons were sent to die in Chechnya. The same was true of the many
Russian mothers whose sons died in Afghanistan. And also the very same is
true of many American mothers whose sons died in Viet Nam.
The vast new oilfield under Chechnya, by itself, could meet the world's needs for energy for several hundred years. This new oil supply was far more than could be handled by the aging Trans-Siberia and Alaska pipelines. With the collapse of the USSR in 1991, the Russian oil could then be marketed directly. A new overland transport method needed to be built. An obvious and short method would be to build a pipeline westward from the Caspian Sea to the Black Sea and then existing oil tanker ships could take the oil across the Black Sea, through the narrow Bosporus channel at Istanbul, Turkey to the Mediterranean Sea and then on to the rest of the world.
There was only one problem with that route. The older Russian oil fields around the Black Sea still produced enough oil to create a daily traffic jam of tanker ships through the narrow Bosporus channel. That long channel is barely wide enough in some places for two ships to pass each other. The Turks live in constant fear of an ecological disaster caused by an oil tanker accident on the very doorstep of Istanbul, which surrounds the channel.
The Bosporus Channel was already beyond the safe limit for tanker traffic so the massive supply of new Chechen oil could not be shipped that way. Seven other long pipeline routes had been proposed in the 1990's. All of them required reaching the Mediterranean Sea by going through politically unstable regions such as eastern Turkey, Syria or Lebanon, all of which are areas of unrest and open to terrorist attack. None of those routes were viable.
In 1995 a seemingly safe and short alternative route was discovered to get around the unsafe overloaded Bosporus Channel in Turkey. The oil tankers on the Black Sea, instead of going south through the narrow Bosporus, would turn northward up the wide Danube River toward Europe. But then at Belgrade, in Serbian Yugoslavia the tankers would make a quick left turn up a tributary river, unload the oil, and with only a short 50 mile pipeline could reach the large Mediterranean seaport of Tirana, Albania and then on to the world. It looked cheap and easy. And where would that short pipeline be built? Across a small province called Kosovo. If only Kosovo could be placed under some international control to eliminate terrorist attacks and ensure a safe pipeline.
The US Air Force tried to put Serbia and Kosovo under NATO control in
1999. It almost worked. But, Albania was unlike all the other old
Yugoslavian ethnic states which had been client states of the USSR under
the dictator Tito. Albania, alone in that region, had been a client state
of China since 1949. The Chinese had long used Tirana, Albania as a
European opium and heroin shipping point, in an operation far larger than
French Connection in Marseilles. The Albanians still maintain
ties with China.
The Chinese, did not want to see large amounts of new energy supplies
flowing to the west under BP-Standard control. The Chinese supported and
ethnic-Albanian rebels, since the breakup of Yugoslavia in
the early 1990's, to ensure continuous unrest in the whole region around
Kosovo, Serbia, Bosnia and Macedonia, and thus no pipeline. Ever wonder why
the Chinese embassy in Belgrade was
accidently bombed and
obliterated in 1999? The US Air Force claimed the old street maps their
pilots were reading didn't show the Chinese Embassy. You can fool some of
the people some of the time, but not always. Within a year the Empire of
Energy would find an alternative. To most Americans and to the rest of the
world that alternative would look like a very strange Presidential
Posted May 25, 2001
About the same time as the beginning of the Viet Nam war there arose another large threat to Standard Oil control of the world's energy supply. And that was the development of nuclear energy. The ability and knowledge to extract uranium ore from the ground and turn it into a cheap, clean non-polluting energy source had been developed during WWII. Unlike all carbon- based petroleum products, which when burned or oxidized emit carbon dioxide, along with other contaminates into the atmosphere, nuclear fuel in a properly sealed reactor has no emissions.
For reasons of national security, all supplies of uranium ore were placed under strict national control of primarily the governments of the US and the USSR. Private ownership or control of uranium and plutonium as an energy source was not allowed. The new concept of taking another natural resource and turning it into energy with enough supply already currently mined and available to supply the world's energy needs for the next 500 years, would have put all oil companies, including Standard, quickly out of business. Something needed to be done to counter that and fast.
Using the same technique as setting up and organizing the anti- war
demonstrators to cover for the Vietnamese offshore oil surveys and blaming
war on the
military-industrial- complex — Standard
environmentalist movements to shut down the
development of nuclear power plants. But there was a slight difference. In
the case where countries owned the oil fields, the countries could be
communists since they held the oil as community property
fascists could be
hired to go fight the
communists to allow the private companies to come in and take over
In many countries of the world, this process of allowing private corporations to take over the natural resources in a country is often called capitalism, free-enterprise, or even just democracy, though none of those has anything to do with the outright theft of natural resources. It is more properly defined as fascism.
Ever since, Rachael Carson's book
Silent Spring, written in the
mid-1960's, people have become aware of how we can unintentionally pollute
large areas. A new word was coined in the 60's called
Everybody is against pollution and everybody wants a clean environment. In
that sense, we are all
environmentalists. But the words have become
twisted and morphed into grotesque new meanings.
The purpose of the organized environmentalist movements was to be a
cover for the oil company stoppage of the building of nuclear power plants.
Thus, instead of branding the country which owned the nuclear fuel as
communist, since it was the US which owned most of the fuel, the
uranium and plutonium fuel itself needed to be
branded as the worst
mass killer since Stalin, Hitler and Foo Manchu.
phoney environmentalists would point out Hiroshima,
Nagasaki and even Chernobyl as proof of the dangers of nuclear energy. But
if you explain that Chernobyl was never built to be a safe nuclear power
plant, but was an old Soviet bomb factory for quickly converting raw
uranium into plutonium for making nuclear bombs. And, if you further
explain that it did produce electricity as a byproduct but it was not
designed to be a safe power plant, the average environmentalist only stares
blankly. And no nuclear reactors like Chernobyl, without any safety-sealed
containment vessel, have been built for over 50 years. But that wasn't in
environmentalist movement handout literature they read.
Are nuclear reactors safe, clean and reliable? Go ask the US Navy. They have been running hundreds of nuclear reactors for over 40 years in their ships, submarines and aircraft carriers. Not one accident or radiation leak. When it comes time to change the used nuclear fuel, after the old fuel is removed and they wait two days for the short-term radiation components in the core container to fade away, the nuclear swabbies actually enter the reactor core, and do their regular maintenance work.
Often the Navy nuclear technicians sit for several days right on the
reactor core with their tools and instruments during the maintenance
procedure. The dosimeters they wear measure the amount of radiation they
are getting. The dosimeters always show the total radiation they get while
sitting in the reactor core during maintenance is much less radiation than
the average web- surfer gets from sitting in front of a color VGA computer
monitor while surfing the web for an hour. What? That wasn't in the
phoney environmentalist handouts?
The US Navy runs more nuclear reactors than anybody else in the world. The radiation output from a fully operating sealed and shielded Navy nuclear reactor is zero. If you want proof of that, go ask the Navy, especially the thousands of Navy-trained nuclear technicians and engineers who work on those reactors. And go ask the Navy submariners who may spend up to six months of sea duty within feet of an operating nuclear reactor. They should know. And they will all tell you the same thing.
And if you point out that hundreds of times more people have been killed and maimed with Napalm, a simple half-and-half jelly mixture of gasoline and coconut palm oil, than were ever killed in both the Hiroshima and Nagasaki explosions. Specifically, the massive firestorm bombing of most of Tokyo and several other large Japanese cities, and even German cities, near the end of WWII were all the result of Napalm. Again a blank stare. All petroleum products can be turned into Napalm, or even now the very large gas-air explosive devices, almost rivaling nuclear weapons in destructive power. Why don't we also outlaw and prevent the production of energy using dangerous petroleum?
Then it becomes obvious. Most of the
are really being directed by the petroleum industry to shut down nuclear
energy in order to keep the huge profits flowing into the oil companies,
until the time comes when the energy companies can also take control of
The purpose of the Kyoto Treaty was to sharply limit the emissions of carbon dioxide, branded as a dangerous greenhouse gas. The only way the US could comply with the treaty was either (1) sharply limit the generation of electrical energy from carbon-based petroleum and thus shut down the US, or (2) switch over to nuclear-based electrical generation by allowing the energy companies to own and use nuclear fuel. This switchover has been done in France, Germany and Japan and other countries that don't have their own supply of oil and find nuclear fuel is much cheaper and cleaner than oil. Of course, they all agree with the Kyoto accords.
phoney environmentalists, who are still clamoring for
the US to enact the Kyoto accords, are both in favor of the switchover to
nuclear generated energy, and at the same time are opposed to building new
nuclear plants in the US. I will leave it to the
to figure out the illogic of that position.
This is sad, since most of the people in the environmental groups are truly concerned about pollution and are simply unaware they are being misdirected and misused by the oil companies, specifically BP-Standard Oil. If you visit the national headquarters of the environmental groups, like Earth First, Natural Resources Defense Council or the Sierra Club, you won't find a grass roots people operation. Instead you will see vast, palatial, well-appointed suites of offices only rivaled by the corporate headquarters of the oil companies for which they front.
This will soon become obvious when the environmental groups, to help solve the impending energy shortages, as in California and soon to be coming to a neighborhood near you, actually make recommendations to build more power plants using natural gas or clean oil, but never recommend nuclear energy plants. The Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Council will probably be the first, and then all the other groups will follow.
Within several years, when the US laws prohibiting nuclear waste
recycling are dropped, the
environmentalists will become the
strongest advocates of clean nuclear energy. They will point out that
nuclear fuel is recyclable with no emissions, while that nasty petroleum
fuel is not recyclable and has terrible emissions dangerous to health and
the planet. But before that happens the
complete their current project of changing the US laws prohibiting
recycling and private ownership of nuclear fuels.
Thus fascism in America is not only alive and well, but is a thriving
mainstream growth industry. It has been entrenched in the center of the US
Federal government since the founding of the Federal Reserve System in 1913
and controls the US economy. With the creation of the US Department of
Education in the 1970's, instruction in the
fascist oil company plan
has taken over all state and local education systems and reached its goal
about 15 years ago with the introduction of what is called the
2000 program. Ever wonder why it was called
That program was produced and pushed through congress by something called the General Education Board. The plan of the Goals 2000 program is to divide children from parents, prevent any reasonable education that would produce children who might ask who really runs the world, and foment division among racial groups through diversity training, along with a healthy dose of oil company environmentalism. This almost exact same education plan was used by Adolf Hitler in the 1930's and 40's in his Hitler Youth movement. It later was adopted by Stalin in the 1950's and Fidel Castro in the '60s. It can now be found in many countries.
The Diversity training in the new curriculum is similar to the German
racial hygiene, or awareness of racial differences, which was based
on the earlier
eugenics movement that started in the US and was made
into law in most of the states starting with South Dakota in the
And from where did Adolph Hitler get his education plan? And where did
Stalin and Castro get their education plans? And now even the education
plans being sent worldwide by the United Nations through UNICEF and UNESCO?
They all got them from the working papers written by the General Education
Board, founded in 1905 by John D. Rockefeller. Almost all textbooks in
American schools now say at the bottom of the inside cover,
the General Education Board. Now you know who they are and what has
happened to the American education system.
The federal government through the Department of Education, which provides no education nor instruction, has done nothing in the last 30 years to improve education in the US. Multiple billions of US dollars have been spent, not to improve academic achievement, which has seriously declined, but to ensure the complete and proper implementation of the fascist oil General Education Plan in every state and local school district throughout the nation. Most of the money is spent on overcoming the great resistance of both teachers and parents who don't like what they see in the Goals 2000 plan. John D. Rockefeller would be proud of his achievement, and it didn't cost him a nickel. He got the taxpayers to pay for it.
There are numerous other examples in American life and culture where the
clear hand of Oil Company Fascism has taken complete control in the last 20
to 25 years. So it would not be correct to say there is a growing movement
of fascism in the world. It has been here for over 80 years and anything
which does not fit into the framework of Oil Company Fascism is branded as
polluting, dangerous to health, or communist. And soon even the need for
that will be superfluous and then you are only left with the worldwide
Hi-test ethyl-supreme Fascism of the Empire of Energy. Can you say
In the early days of the discovery of large oil fields, the first being
in Arkansas, followed quickly by discoveries in Texas and California, all
three of those states were swiftly made
safe for the oil business.
All of the candidates for legislators and governors were bribed with
handsome political campaign war chests filled brimming with oil profits. In
those three states the only way to get into state office was to buddy up
with the oil companies and then make sure all the laws you passed were
kindly to your benefactors.
Thus Arkansas, Texas and California have been
Oil Company States
since about 1920. Did you notice in the last 21 years, all the Presidents
of the US were governors or senators from Arkansas, Texas or California?
And before that,
Viet Nam War Johnson was a Texas oilman, and
Viet Nam War Nixon was a California oil senator. Just a coincidence?
The oil business is non-partisan. It makes no difference whether a
Republican or Democrat wins an election. Just as when you go to fill up
your tank at the gas station, somebody else has already chosen for you
whether you buy foreign or American gas. Likewise, who you select on the
voting ballot doesn't matter. Somebody else has already chosen for you. The
Fascist Oil Party always wins either way.
Thus for the last 38 years, all the presidents have been Standard Oil
men from Oil Company states, except for Georgia's Jimmy Carter. And in
1977, it was ex-Navy nuclear engineer, President Carter, who signed a law
which forbade the recycling of used nuclear material through reprocessed
fuel as is done throughout the rest of the world as in Japan, France and
Germany. This produced, only in America, a vast nuclear waste dump problem
which effectively shut down any new nuclear plants in the US. There is no
waste problem in other countries, where the waste is all continuously
recycled as enriched uranium fuel. There is virtually no waste. But, of
course, that is not in the
phoney environmentalist handouts.
The Big Four Rockefeller Brothers, the grandsons of John D, each took a
different slice of the world pie. Laurence Rockefeller took the Asian
region as assistant regent of Japan under General MacArthur after WWII,
which lead to the Vietnam
war and the vast oil profits there.
Nelson Rockefeller became governor of New York, based on his childhood
home on the vast Rockefeller estate in Terrytown on the Hudson, just north
or Rye. Nelson had his eyes on stealing his way into the presidency, not by
election, but by simple appointment using something he created, and slammed
through Congress in 1967 in a matter of weeks. It was called the
Rockefeller Amendment, also known as the 25th Amendment to the US
Constitution. It happened so fast, most people never even noticed. And the
source of that amendment is not taught in schools.
The 25th Amendment allows any person, qualified or not, to become president of the US, by simple appointment, not by election. And which Nelson Rockefeller used to become vice president only 7 years later. But he had hoped to be appointed 4 years earlier by an agreement with Richard Nixon. But Nixon reneged, which lead to Nelson getting rid of Richard through the Watergate scandal set up by Nelson. Ever wonder who the deep-throated gravely voice belonged to, who spoon fed the Watergate information against Nixon to Woodward and Bernstein in the darkly lit underground garages? Go ask Woodward, he knows. But he's not telling. Ever wonder what happened to the American press?
The baby brother of the Big Four, David Rockefeller, set himself up as the monetary head of the world, using his control of the monetary system in the US through the Federal Reserve System, and then later expanded around the world by using the newly created World Bank and the International Monetary Fund to control the central banks and economies of most, and now all, nations. And what of the fourth grandson, Winthrop? Winthrop and his vast inherited wealth and power only took over a state. The state of Arkansas. Winthrop owned Arkansas and everything in it. But it was such a minor state, with many uneducated people and who would want such a puny job? Winthrop did. Winthrop owned Arkansas.
In 1973 during the Watergate Scandal hearings, Nixon was being
maneuvered out of the Oval Office and a Rockefeller friend, Jerry Ford who
appointed by Nixon, was being maneuvered into office as
interim president. Then using the Rockefeller 25th Amendment, Jerry in turn
appointed Nelson Rockefeller as his Vice President. This would seem
a rather strange game of Rockefeller musical chairs, and even more
strangely the American press and the public never even noticed.
The press was too busy with the
leaked Nixon Watergate scandals
to notice what was happening just behind the scenery. The fascist energy
empire was learning how to use outrageous scandal as a cover for the next
phase of political activity. Even though the political activity is in plain
sight for all to see, it simply is not reported by the press, therefore it
It was a young Hillary Rodham Clinton, as one of the lead congressional law counsels during the Watergate hearings, who helped put Nelson Rockefeller in position. As payback, Hillary's husband would be made Governor of Arkansas, with the assistance of Winthrop Rockefeller, who owned Arkansas.
That deal was a slam dunk and William Clinton became Arkansas governor.
But Bill Clinton was such a scandalous ruffian, even the simple folk of
Arkansas wanted to quickly impeach him and toss him out of office. So
Winthrop had to save the day and step in for a while as interim Governor of
Arkansas until the scandals quieted down. Then Clinton returned for a
second term as governor. And why would Winthrop do all that? Because
Rockefeller-BP-Standard was grooming
scandalous Bill Clinton to take
over as their man in the Presidency. Bill Clinton had been a Rockefeller
oil man ever since his college days as a Rhodes scholar, and his trip to
visit the oil men in the USSR back in the 1960's.
With eight years of Bill Clinton in office as President of the US, his many wild and continuous scandals would cover up the workings behind the scene as the oil company fascists took over control of the federal government and the press. That process was completed and proven when even a scandalized publicly self-admitted perjurer like Bill Clinton, could not be impeached and convicted by the US congressmen — because BP-Standard now owned them all. In accord with John D. Rockefeller's vow 90 years before, the takeover of the American government by the fascist oil empire was now complete, thanks to Winthrop Rockefeller, who owned Arkansas. The next and final scene of world domination by the New Empire of Energy was now only one short step away. Enter George W. Bush stage right.
