Some years ago there was a rare, public meeting in Chicago of the Federal Communications Commission, F.C.C. It was set up in the main ballroom of a grand downtown hotel. The public was invited to hear and participate as to problems of the media. Correspondents of the major news outlets were there, with their cameras and lights.
A cynical friend leaned over and whispered to me, "Looks like a meeting of the Warren Commission. What political assassination are they here to cover up?"
I raised my hand repeatedly to ask a question of the FCC Commissioners. Finally, they pointed to me. "The Rockefellers own, as you know, all three networks," I asked, "How is it that you, as Commissioners of the FCC, do nothing about this monopoly?" I had with me a public document that I held up for them to notice.
Guess what was the reaction of these poobahs, these viceroys of the king's communications regulations? They asked that I, wheelchair and all, be thrown out of the meeting for asking an "inappropriate question". Hey, what was that now? An "inappropriate question" at THEIR get-together ballyhooed as a PUBLIC MEETING? Of course, no one in the press reported my confrontation of the FCC, no piece of film or audio tape was broadcast.
Now, years later, who discusses that the Rockefellers, lords of the oil cartel, still own all three networks, though confusing things by calling one Mickey Mouse (Disney), one is reportedly the defective light-bulb factory (G.E.), and the other, currently, the reputed left-overs of Murder, Inc.(Viacom)? The mass media have a problem that no paid journalist, commentator, or pundit would dare discuss. Not even the paid writers of the journalism magazines. Since I am an unpaid free-lance journalist, and moderator and producer of an unpaid, public access Cable TV Program, I am not in the line of fire to have reprisals inflicted on me for opening my big mouth. No one can send me a pink slip.
If you were to scrutinize, over a period of time, the various stories in the press, print and electronic, as to oil, and if you knew a lot of the behind-the-scenes details, what do you realize? That when it comes to the price of oil and how it is explained by key reporters in the monopoly press, that there is a diabolical manipulation. Some important journalists, even some covering the White House, spend part of their day, at the expense of the networks communications---phones, satellite hook-ups, and such---transacting with their stock and commodity peddlers, Chicago, New York, London, Singapore, and a few other places.
[And some of the websites of supposedly "alternative" news, are financed by oily foundations, such as Mellon Scaife, those tied to banks and major Establishment enterprises.]
The press-fakers "report" that there is a "terrible oil shortage", and "oil inventories are at a dangerous historic low", and such, twisting the public brain to accept high oil prices. Like in analyzing a political assassination, you have to ask Who benefits? Their ultimate bosses, the Rockefellers and others in the oil control. And some of the long-time news correspondents themselves, and their relatives and circle of cronies, financially benefit. How? Because some of them are "long" on oil stocks, or have bought "call" options or futures on oil, such as on a gambling contract for one thousand barrels of oil per contract, that the price will go up.
When the oil is manipulated to a very high price, painful to the working stiff who has to drive a distance each day to his ordinary-wage job---well, then the oil-drenched pundits say oil may decline by as much as ten dollars per barrel. A simple reason? These press whores and their circle are "short" oil stocks, or have "put" futures or options contracts, gambling that they could "cover" their thousand barrels of oil per contract sold at a high price, by later "buying" it at a much lower price, to fulfill the contract.
This sort of dirty business by the press-whores goes on all the time. The bankers, like the Rockefellers, will not do anything about this gambling by their key lapdog "reporters" and "commentators".
You have to understand The Persian Gulf gang are paid in so-called "U.S.Dollars", actually, Federal Reserve toilet paper notes backed by nothing but hot air, which are deposited in the major oily U.S. banks. The manipulated price of oil is a crooked yo-yo, to keep the Persian Gulf weak sheikdoms off-balance. America's former head of the secret political police, the CIA, arranged a shooting conflict as follows:
George Herbert Walker Bush, when he was head of the American CIA, laid the way to install as a strongman of Iraq, Saddam Hussein, by arranging the political assassination of the previous dictator. As we showed in exclusive stories based on an unpublicized Chicago federal court case, Bush during the decade of the 1980s was a secret private business partner of Saddam in huge oil kick-backs, extorted from the Persian Gulf sheikdoms. In 1990, Bush, through U.S. Ambassador April Glaspie, assured Saddam that the U.S. will play no role in Iraq's long-time quarrel with the former British colony of Kuwait, over the ownership of an oilfield near the boundary line. So Bush's one-time business partner was suckered into grabbing the area where Iraq claimed historic ownership. Kuwait and Saudi were purposely endangered by Bush requiring U.S. military aid, the intervention of a half a million U.S. troops. Through his companies, like Dresser Industries, many years previous, Bush had set up Kuwait's drilling operations. Saddam, as ordered by the CIA, burned out many Kuwaiti oilfields and machinery. After the short Gulf War, companies beholden to Bush prospered from Kuwaiti restoration contracts.
By the Persian Gulf War, U.S. and Britain gained an even more firm control of the degenerate royals of the Gulf. France, which participated in the war, was angry about having been left out of the area by way of a deal all the way back in 1922. Now a foreign journalist claims that to even the score with the Brits and the Americans, that a French chemical laboratory concocted the terrible poison that gave British and American troops the deadly Gulf War Syndrome. French troops, who served alongside the others, are mysteriously NOT suffering from GWS. Were THEY given an antidote ahead of time, the very knowledgeable journalist, Barry Chamish, asks? [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Chamish further claims that the French, heavily for the Pope, wanted to control Jerusalem for the Vatican. And that Israel Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was being very anti-French and pro-Jerusalem to be the capitol of Israel, was assassinated with French connivance. Whenever there is a phony problem as to oil, or scandals to be whitewashed in Washington, D.C., the CIA's created monster, Saddam Hussein, is dragged out to be demonized further and made a bombing target by the U.S.
At the close of the Persian Gulf War, the Emir of Kuwait rewarded Rockefeller's puppet, President Bush, with 15 million dollars in gold and jewels. General H. Norman Schwarzkoph was paid off with 15 million dollars in Kuwaiti gold, and General Colin Powell was bribed with 10 million in diamonds. [Hey, was General Powell discriminated against as a black man, getting less than the others? Little discussed are the documented matters that so late in the 20th Century, Kuwait and Saudi still had black chattel slaves. I dared raise that slavery issue at a huge anti-war conference in Chicago, December, 1990. I asked Why were Black GIs put in harm's way to fight for Kuwait and Saudi which are black slave-owners? Even NPR, which I call National Petroleum Radio, refused to deal with the issue. Sharon Percy ROCKEFELLER, wife of U.S. Senator John D. Rockefeller 4th, plays a head role in NPR.]
These pay-offs to President Bush and the two Generals, as U.S. government officials, are prohibited by the U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 9, last clause, which states "No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States. And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, ACCEPT OF ANY PRESENT, EMOLUMENT, OR TITLE, OF ANY KIND WHATEVER, FROM ANY KING, PRINCE, OR FOREIGN STATE." (Emphasis added.)
The press-fakers have covered up such matters at the same time profiting
themselves with the psyching out the public as to the so-called "oil
crisis". The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, S.E.C., and the
Commodity Futures Trading Commission, CFTC---what, if anything, are THEY
doing or intending to do, about the press whores manipulating the news
on subjects like oil, while at the same time themselves gambling on the
price of oil and other such items? Call up your local press rats and ask
them about all this. Let us know the reaction. Stay tuned.
