"THE ENRON BLACK MAGIC, PART FIVE"
by Sherman H. Skolnick 2/10/02

BIG OIL and BIG ELECTRICITY

Scientists have a way of explaining the Universe. Such as, Sir Isaac Newton and the Law of Gravity. And Albert Einstein and his Theory of Relativity and a form of Unified Field Theory. The purpose of it all was to make sense out of a lot of different happenings.

Can recent and current events likewise be explained in a form of overall view? Of course, some critics would immediately dismiss that as merely conspiratorial theories of history. It sometimes takes months, if not years, to understand what is occurring right in front of us.

Let us see if we even in part agree THE UNIFIED PATTERN OF EVENTS---[1] 1961. THE ELECTRIC SCANDAL. Top officials of General Electric and Westinghouse were sent to Federal Prison for engaging in an Anti-Trust Conspiracy to control the price of electric generating machinery, and thus, control the price of energy. They were fingered by U.S. Senator Albert Gore, Sr. (D., Tenn.), and the Tennessee Valley Authority, TVA, large user of such equipment. The Gore Family had been instrumental in setting up the TVA to supply inexpensive electricity to the region. In later years, GE, the owner of NBC Network, greatly opposed and vilified Albert Gore, Jr., as Vice President and then candidate for President in the year 2000 Election. Part of this was by NBC's Washington correspondent, Andrea Mitchell, live-in girl friend and then wife of Federal Reserve Commissar Alan Greenspan. As we noted in Part 2 of this series, the Federal Reserve secretly siphoned off huge amounts of funds from the energy giant, Enron, to temporarily support the stock market in attempts to avoid a financial meltdown in 2001 and 2002, which George W. Bush, as White House resident and occupant, could not handle. When the Democratic Convention chose Gore as Presidential candidate in 2000, he made an impassioned speech stating he was against BIG OIL and for the common people. [Details of the 1961 scandal are in the book "The Great Price Conspiracy ; the story of the anti-trust violations in the electrical industry" by John Herling, Greenwood Press, 1961.]

[2] 1963. POLITICAL ASSASSINATION. President John F. Kennedy was in the process of eliminating the oil depletion allowance, BIG OIL's huge tax loophole. Through his brother Bobby, as U.S. Attorney General, the JFK Justice Department was in the process of investigating massive energy and other fraud's by BIG OIL's front man, Lyndon B. Johnson, then vice president under JFK. (The Kennedys had very reluctantly chosen LBJ for vice president at the 1960 Democratic Convention. They never trusted him.) The Justice Department probe of LBJ was suddenly and fatally blocked on the day JFK's brains where blown out in an open car in Dallas, capital of BIG OIL. A much later released FBI document, but dated November 29, 1963, tends to prove that George Herbert Walker Bush was implicated in the cover-up of the political murder of JFK. In the FBI document, Bush is identified as with CIA. In fact, Bush had been with CIA since at least 1959, through his oil fronts, originally Zapata Petroleum, later Zapata Offshore. Zapata offshore oil rigs, according to a story in Reuters, were the transit point for dope trafficking, being that the rigs were technically beyond the U.S. jurisdiction in international waters. The Bush Family also have been business partners with Carlos Lehder, co-founder of the Colombia dope cartel.[ Visit our website series on "The Chandra Levy Affair".]

The details of the oil industry plotting and arranging the assassination in their Dallas capital of President Kennedy are detailed in the book "Farewell America" by James Hepburn. A best-seller in Europe, the book was forbidden for many years after the publication in 1968 to be distributed in the United States in bookstores. [I and my associates were about the only ones in the U.S. somehow able to get the book into the country. In return for small donations, we gave it away at college lectures across the nation in the 1970s. Alas! now we have no more copies. However, one or more websites from time to time have all, or parts of the once banned book on-line. Yet, the website addresses have frequently changed to elude apparent mischief to sabotage those websites by the secret political police, the FBI and the American CIA.

The oil industry was also upset by JFK's policies to taper off American military and CIA assassination involvement in Viet Nam's civil war. Blasting Viet Nam into submission was BIG OIL's plan to develop sizeable oil deposits offshore of the South East Asian nation.

[3] 1973. THE BIG OIL FRAUD. The American CIA that had in the 1950s restored the Shah of Iran to his Peacock Throne, by violently overthrowing the elected government in Teheran, enlisted the Persian dictator to start up a series of events that some call the giant oil swindle. There was a pretended embargo and oil shortages that plundered the ordinary people in the U.S. and Europe. Long-experienced CIA covert operatives, as a diversion, touched off the scandal of the break-ins at a hotel in Washington, D.C. that came to be called "The Watergate Affair". The scheme was master-minded by among others, E. Howard Hunt, a purported assassination arranger, and James McCord, in charge of physical security at the CIA headquarters. [Twelve Watergators who were shaking down President Richard M. Nixon, including Hunt's wife, Dorothy, were murdered by way of a sabotaged plane crash in Chicago, in 1972, one month after Tricky Dick was re-elected. Visit our website series, "The Secret History of Airplane Sabotage"..]

In France was published a book seldom mentioned in the U.S., detailing the Shah's role in setting off the oil swindle which was covered up by the Watergate smokescreen. [We may locate the exact title, published only in French.]

Thus, the Watergate Affair was used by the olil-soaked, energy-grabbing, spy-riddled monopoly press to divert public attention from the oil rip-off and what it was all about. Facing impeachment, Nixon resigned the presidency. As a reward for not publicly saying what really was happening, thereafter Nixon was given a residence in Manhattan with a common wall, like a duplex or townhouse, with the residence of major oil crook David Rockefeller. The group of those blackmailing Nixon died in the Watergate Plane Crash, the sabotage covered up by United Air Lines, owned at the time by the Rockefeller Family.

[4] 1980. THE TREASONOUS ELECTION. George Herbert Walker Bush was running for vice president on the Reagan/Bush ticket. Bush was worried about an "October Surprise". Namely, that incumbent Jimmy Carter, running for re-election, would become very popular by, at the last minute before the election, obtaining the release of the 52 U.S. Embassy hostages held by Iran since November, 1979. To tar Carter as a wimp, not able to get the hostages released, Bush arranged in Paris in October, 1980, a secret and treasonous deal with top Iranian officials to not release the hostages until the Reagan/Bush ticket won the election and were inaugurated, in January, 1981.Just as Reagan was raising his hand to be sworn in as president, at high noon, the hostages were released. [Many details are in Barbara Honegger's book, "The October Surprise".]

The Iran-Iraq war, touched off by Big Oil to keep up the price of crude, started in September, 1980. So Iran needed weapons. They were paid off for the hostage release delay with whatever they needed. The items were shipped covertly through Portugal to Israel as a trans-shipment point to Iran. The top officials of Portugal were unhappy with the arrangement and began to finger Bush. As a result, Bush, through his pals in the American CIA experts in airplane sabotage, murdered Portugal's Prime Minister and a cabinet member through a sabotaged airplane. Some of the details have been in the Portuguese press. And, a book is in process fingering the bloody role of Daddy Bush.

In the 1980s, the Elder Bush was a secret, private business partner of Iraqi strongman Saddam Hussein. They split billions of dollars as "protection money" from the weak, oil-soaked sheikdoms of the Persian Gulf. [Details of the little-known lawsuit in Chicago about the same are mentioned in our website story, "The Secrets of Timothy McVeigh".] In its simplest form, the Persian Gulf War was a falling out of business partners. As part of his secret dealings with Saddam, Bush was a sizeable owner of the unit of a French firm, American LaFarge, that reportedly supplied to Bagdad the ingredients for making poison gas. The diabolical weapon, outlawed by the Geneva Convention, was used by Iraq to beat back the hordes of very young Iranian youngsters pressed into service as soldiers. A director of American LaFarge was Hillary Rodham Clinton. [From an early age, long before they were married, Bill and Hillary each had separate roles with the American CIA.]

[5] ENRON and MARC RICH. About 1985, the Reagan/Bush Justice Department, controlled primarily actually by Bush, permitted and condoned the international swindler Marc Rich to be allowed to flee the U.S. and have his headquarters in Zug, Switzerland. Marc Rich, real name Reich, was thus corruptly arranged to escape federal criminal prosecution for some 40 Billion Dollars of tax cheating and other federal criminal offenses. Set up in Houston about the same time, as a successor and alter ego for Marc Rich International, was Enron Corp. Key players have been Daddy Bush (who arranged the Marc Rich escape), son George W. Bush, and Richard Cheney who had been instrumental in the Persian Gulf War trick. Until he ran for vice president, Cheney was CEO of Halliburton, worldwide supplier of oil and pipeline machinery. Cheney, through a subsidiary owned by the Bush Family, Dresser Industries, treasonously defeated the international embargo on Iraq, by supplying Iraq with oil machinery and similar items.

Vincent W. Foster, Jr., who became for a brief period Clinton White House Deputy Counsel, was assassinated in 1993, falsely described as a "suicide". Among the reasons for murdering him was that Foster sought to counter Daddy Bush's scheme to protect Marc Rich. Foster along with others, was part of an effort to grab Marc Rich at the Swiss/French border to try to get him back to the U.S. to face the federal music. [Visit our website story, "Marc Rich and Others---Fingered By A Letter".] Like Marc Rich International, Enron has used the Chicago markets for massive worldwide money laundering, to disguise illicit dealings as currency deals, soybean trading, and such. Used have been the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the Chicago Board of Trade, the Chicago Stock Exchange (formerly the scandal-ridden Midwest Stock Exchange purportedly used, according to little known court records, for massive IRS cheating and embezzlement, condoned by top corrupt IRS officials in Chicago), and the Chicago Board Options Exchange. [Visit earlier parts of this series as well as our other items on Marc. Rich.]

[6] 1990s on. MORE MASSIVE ENERGY FRAUD. The same players have been implicated in tremendous energy fraud. An example is in India. It all revolves around a three billion dollar ten-year development project started in 1992, for liquefied natural gas, called the Dabhol power plant. As one author described the plant, it "was to have gone online by 1997. It was supposed to supply energy-hungry India with more than 2,000 megawatts of electricity, about one-fifth the new energy needed by India each year." "Enron's India Disaster" by Sam Parry, 12/30/2001, consortiumnews.com From all the circumstances, it appears the plant will never go on-line and never be completed. Some commentators contend there have been reported efforts to corrupt top officials in India to overlook this financial disaster. And who came to apparently strongman the top officials in India? Why none other than Richard Cheney.

Before the project became an albatross, look what some said. "As an integrated gas and power project, the facilities will contribute significantly to the development and expansion of both the natural gas and power sector in India" declared Enron's Chairman and CEO Kenneth Lay. (Energy Daily, 12/9/1993.]

And who besides ENRON, are the culprits in this huge energy rip-off? Why, naturally, GENERAL ELECTRIC and MARC RICH INTERNATIONAL (although published accounts seem to sidestep mentioning Marc Rich International which is actually an alter ego and successor to Enron).

[7] ENRON, FLORIDA, and the BUSH FAMILY. Our prior website stories have dealt with how major corruption, with dope funds, was used to sabotage the Florida Electoral College gimmick, and install George W. Bush as the occupant and resident of the White House. [Visit our website story "Chandra Levy Affair, Part Two" for details on the Bush Family in business with dope king Carlos Lehder.] In a similar situation resulting from the horrendous fraud of the quite similar 1876 election, like George W. Bush in 2001, Rutherford B. Hayes in 1877 was falsely inaugurated. The savvy folks in 1877, began calling him Rutherfraud. Likewise, Albert Gore, Jr., is the actual elected President BUT NOT INAUGURATED. Hence, some call the usurper, BUSHFRAUD.

George W. Bush's brother, Jeb Bush, as Governor of Florida is loaded with officials in Jeb's administration tied to Enron. Jeb also sits as a Trustee of the Florida State Pension Fund which kept putting state funds into Enron as Enron was collapsing and then sold the same just as Enron was to file Bankruptcy. The result is the Florida State Pension Fund has lost about 335 million dollars. Spokespersons for Jeb state the Florida Governor does not know anything about how it happened. Was he asleep as pension fund trustee? In a letter 2/8/2002, to Florida Governor Jeb Bush, the group called Public Citizen "Citing Extensive Conflicts of Interest, Public Citizen Calls On Florida Governor To Recuse Himself from Pension Fund Investigations". The letter lists numerous financial entanglements of Jeb Bush and his cohorts with Enron.

CONCLUSION.. Are all of these happenings part of a Unified Pattern of Events, or just historical coincidences and accidental matters? Remember, the United States of America is based on a Social Compact between the common people and those who rule us. That is, those who rule us do so ONLY with our consent. It is the basis of our organic law, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Despite that, however, BIG OIL and BIG ENERGY and their front men and women, some appearing and re-appearing in our website stories, have decided our lives if not our actual destinies, as ordinary Americans, for at least 40 years and more. BIG OIL's punching bags.

More coming. Stay tuned.
